In recent years, the global community has made active efforts to combat climate change. In 2015, based on the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Paris Agreement was concluded, which includes commitments by countries to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and aims to curb global warming.
The European Union, the United States, Japan and a number of other countries have already announced their intentions to be carbon neutral by 2050, China and Russia — by 2060. The fuel and energy sectors will play a significant role in the decarbonization of the global economy.
In this regard, in recent years there has been an increase in investment in the development of alternative energy sources, primarily in RES and hydrogen. Russia also pays considerable attention to the development and implementation of green energy technologies in order to remain the world leader in the production and supply of energy resources in any vector of development of energy markets.


Discussion points:
• Which energy sectors will be the leading ones in the world energy mix of the future?
• Will hydrocarbons remain in demand and can they be environmentally friendly?
• Can nuclear power really be considered “clean“?
• What is Russia's energy policy in the context of global decarbonization?
• What are the prospects for Russia in the development of renewable energy sources and hydrogen energy?
• Will Russia remain a world leader in the energy markets in the medium and long term?
