The Global Energy Association has traveled to Eastern Siberia to make a film about hydropower.

The main point of the visit has become the Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectric power station, the largest hydroelectric power station in Russia, with a dam resting on the rocky banks of the Yenisei River.

During the trip, the Association’s staff met with researchers from the A.M. Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, who are studying the carbon balance of the Sayano-Shushenskoye reservoir, formed on the Yenisei River as a result of the construction of the hydroelectric power station of the same name.

Another point of the visit was the Mainskaya HPP, which forms a single hydropower complex with the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP, being its counter-regulator. It not only generates electricity, but also smooths out river level fluctuations arising from the Sayano-Shushenskaya HPP (which is its main task).

There is a trout farm is in the buffer zone of the Mainskaya HPP.

Scientists have found hot spots in the Arctic

The scientists of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), as part of an international team of specialists, have analysed the satellite and ground-based data for 40 years and identified the hottest spots in the Arctic. According to the fundamental research results, warming in the Arctic is 2.5-3 times faster than on the whole planet. However, an exceptional temperature rise is recorded in the Barents Sea area.
