Hydrocarbons to stay at 70 % of 2040-50 world energy balance: Russian Deputy PM
The share of hydrocarbons in the world-wide energy balance will remain at 70 % by 2040-2050, Russia’s deputy prime minister told an Energy 2.0 session at the Gaidar Forum moderated by Global Energy Association President Sergey Brilev.

The economy is growing and over the next 15 to 20 years, energy consumption will grow by another 30 %,” Alexander Novak told the session. “In these conditions we have to think above all of energy security.

    And traditional energy sources will be the foundation of energy security in such a scenario.

   “Everyone agrees that the share of hydrocarbons will decline, but first of all it will retain the lion’s share in the overall energy balance,” Novak said. “If at this time, hydrocarbons make up 75 %, then, according to different forecasts, that share will decrease by 50-75 %. My conviction is that the share of hydrocarbons will be 70 % between 2040 and 2050.”

1650 hydrogen molecules per hour

The Novosibirsk scientists have proposed a new efficient method for synthesis of a highly active photocatalyst for hydrogen production under the action of sunlight. The materials developed are porous “sponges” made of graphite-like carbon nitride with platinum nanoparticles. The system showed one of the highest values of photocatalytic activity, among all known analogues, with a low content of noble metals, the Russian Science Foundation says.
