dofinOn March 06 in ISEDC, Grigory Yulkin, Director of the Department of strategic planning and partnership, gave a lecture dedicated to “The Russian Energy Reform and International Cooperation” to master degree students of the University of Paris-Dauphine, which organized a study trip to Russia within its program “International Economic Expertise”.

Grigory Yulkin presented the international positioning of Russia and gave a description of the geopolitical context of the sustainable energy development of the national economy: “The Russian approach to constructing energy supply systems is based on the identification and promotion of the long lasting practices of reliable, advanced and effective supplies to secure the energy needs of the population across the country, including those who live under severe climate. Sustainable development issues have in this context always been one of Russia’s major priorities, which raises the need of the more and more promising solutions based on the alternative energy. The Russian energy complex is evolving in line with the global economy, the further development of which substantially depends on the energy guaranteed reliability and availability for all. This factor among the certain creates a favorable ground for the renewable energy”.

During the lecture, Grigory Yulkin answered numerous questions about the adequacy of the national climate policies and response measures, further plans of developing the energy generation based on renewables, production of biofuels, as well as the development of new technologies of generating, storing, transmitting and using of other forms of energy, such as hydrogen and the cold fusion. “Talking about the current state of the Russian energy complex, it is worth mentioning the high significance of conventional energy sources, which have so far been proved to handle the energy security and sustainability. However, the further development of the world energy and global economy is driven by the low carbon trend, which defines the feasibility of advanced achievements based on low carbon perspectives. For the energy of Russia, it means the recognition of the timeliness of the alternative energy development, which should be primarily aimed at providing the balance and equipoise between the energy production and consumption. But on the global scale this process raises the importance of searching for new sources and forms, as well as improving our understanding of the energy nature”, - Grigory Yulkin thinks.
