Prague, September 12th. – Director of the Department of State Energy Policy of the Ministry of Energy of Russia Alexey Kulapin as part of the Russian delegation took part in the 27th Ecological and Economic Forum of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). As part of the event, a series of discussions was held to discuss pressing issues of promoting economic progress and security in the OSCE region through cooperation in energy, introducing new technologies, ensuring good governance and interconnectedness in the digital age. Speaking at the session “Supporting efforts to limit the environmental consequences in the OSCE region” , Alexey Kulapin spoke about the role of the Russian Federation in ensuring global energy and environmental security for Resistant development of the world economy and energy. In particular, he noted that the solution of the corresponding problems was designated by the President of the Russian Federation as a priority direction for the development of the country and reflected in the Doctrine of Energy Security of the Russian Federation approved in the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation in May 2019. “Today, Russia traditionally exports energy resources in the European direction and is actively developing the supply infrastructure to the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, thereby contributing to global energy security,” he said. At the same time, according to Alexei Kulapin, Russia fully understands the importance of the influence of industries The fuel and energy complex on ecology and fully supports the multilateral efforts of the world community to ensure sustainable development, as well as counteract climate change. Already today in the structure More than half of domestic consumption accounts for more than half of domestic consumption of gas, the most environmentally friendly type of fossil fuel, and the share of low-carbon energy sources in the power generation structure is more than four fifths. To further minimize the anthropogenic impact of the fuel and energy complex on the environment, a whole complex is being implemented in Russia initiatives to expand the use of natural gas, increase the “purity” of the use of fossil fuels, modernize the industry, introduce innovative technologies ovation materials, the transition of the fuel and energy sectors to the principles of the best available technologies, the development of environmentally friendly transport and increased energy efficiency. In addition, Russia is actively working on the development of renewable energy in the country, which is important both in terms of the development of distributed generation in isolated and remote areas of the country, and for increasing exports of high-tech products and building human resources. In general, the green energy industry is developing dynamically: the volume of commissioned generation based on renewable energy sources (RES) is growing annually in the country, the production of equipment and components for renewable energy facilities is opened, a pilot wind farm is integrated in the flexible generation system, and several solar power plants are switched to remote Management. A few more promising projects are under development: with the support of the state, a pilot project for the creation of a gravitational drive is being implemented energy, a digital distributed energy management platform is being developed, the first blockchain solutions are being prepared for testing, the creation of a digital system of “green certificates” is being worked out. At the end of his speech, Alexei Kulapin emphasized that the potential for further development of new energy sources and improving the environmental friendliness of energy is largely due to the introduction of digital technologies that will make the functioning of the global fuel and energy sector more economical and environmentally friendly, as well as bring to a fundamentally new level of quality and reliability of providing consumers with affordable energy resources. Reference: Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) is an international platform whose activities are focused on security issues in the military-political, economic, environmental and human dimensions. It includes 57 countries of Europe, Central Asia and North America, including Russia. The OSCE Economic and Environmental Forum is a high-level meeting to discuss pressing issues of the economy, ecology and safety. The event annually gathers on its site more than 400 representatives of state authorities, civil society, business circles and international organizations of the OSCE participating countries. The mission of the Forum is to strengthen political dialogue within the OSCE and give recommendations to participating countries in such areas as energy security, migration, water resources management and good governance. The Energy Security Doctrine of the Russian Federation was approved by Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated May 13, 2019 No. 216.
