Alexander Novak held a meeting of the working group on the development of hydrogen energy in Russia

Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak held a meeting of the interdepartmental working group on the development of hydrogen energy. The event was attended by representatives of the Russian Ministry of Energy, federal executive authorities, energy companies, research centers.

One of the topics of the meeting was the discussion of the draft Comprehensive Program for the Development of the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Energy Industry in the Russian Federation and the draft Technological Strategy for the Development of the Hydrogen Industry of the Russian Federation until 2035. The possibilities of Russian companies to implement projects in the field of hydrogen energy were also discussed.

In the future, Russia intends to take a significant share in the global hydrogen market. Alexander Novak noted that many federal executive authorities and specialized structures are involved in the creation of hydrogen technologies in Russia. “The implementation of a comprehensive program for the development of the low-carbon hydrogen industry will allow Russia to develop its own competencies in the hydrogen industry by 2030, ensure that technologies enter the equipment markets, including the EAEU, and maintain the status of a global energy power,” Alexander Novak emphasized.

The Deputy Prime Minister added that the development of technologies is a key factor in reducing the cost of Russian hydrogen. “Currently, work has already begun on the approval of industry standards for hydrogen technologies, as well as for capturing and injecting CO2. More than 120 standards should be created on a parity basis in the next three years. This will form the basis for the creation of new industries. Highly qualified personnel for the industry will be trained. To support the development of hydrogen technologies, it is also planned to create specialized national laboratories and engineering centers. Priority hydrogen technologies will be selected for development in Russia,” the Deputy Prime Minister noted.

In terms of hydrogen energy, international cooperation is successfully developing. “Agreements have been signed with Germany, Japan and the UAE. We plan to use international instruments as efficiently as possible, while one of the conditions for cooperation with foreign partners is the localization of technologies directly in Russia,” Alexander Novak emphasized.

Following the meeting, the Deputy Prime Minister instructed to finalize the draft Comprehensive Program for the Development of the Low-Carbon Hydrogen Energy Industry in the Russian Federation in terms of target indicators and deadlines for achieving them.
