MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The development of the LNG market, the opening of low-carbon hydrogen production sites, the expansion of the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles – these and many other initiatives were included in the plan for the implementation of the Energy Strategy until 2035, which was approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
IN strategy adopted last summer, as the main goals of the development of the country’s fuel and energy complex, such areas as assistance to the socio-economic development of the country, as well as strengthening and maintaining Russia’s positions in the world energy sector are designated. The plan adopted by the Government will contribute to their achievement.
The document includes more than 130 events affecting all sectors of the fuel and energy complex – from oil and gas production to electric power and heat supply, Mikhail Mishustin said at a meeting with the deputy prime ministers on June 7. A set of initiatives is proposed for each industry task. At the same time, most of it will be implemented in 2021–2022.
For example, the oil industry will continue to fine-tune mechanisms to smooth out fluctuations in prices for petroleum products, and an assessment of programs for the modernization of oil refineries will be carried out. The potential of the gas industry will be expanded, for example, by the creation of special centers for transshipment, storage and trade of LNG in the Arctic, and the elaboration of incentives for the use of NGV fuel. Monitoring of regional and interregional gasification plans will also be launched, which will help to better control their implementation.
The main benchmark in the development of the electric power industry is the increase in the reliability of power supply. For this purpose, measures are planned to introduce intelligent control systems, as well as technologies for remote monitoring and diagnostics of the state of networks. At the same time, the technical connection procedures will be improved, and measures will be taken to reduce losses during the transmission of electricity.
The document also provides for certain measures to improve the energy efficiency of the fuel and energy sector, stimulate the use of renewable energy sources, and develop domestic technologies for low-carbon hydrogen production. A separate track is the formation of a common energy market in the EAEU space.
The implementation of the plan will strengthen the competitiveness of the fuel and energy sector, help to raise their technological level, and, therefore, will increase the contribution of the fuel and energy complex to the country’s development.
The document will be published.
