RUSSIA'S ENERGY FUTURE
Can we hope for a Russia that is no longer dependent on oil and gas during our lifetimes? Russia has extraordinary natural potential for renewable energy, as well as centralised governance that could make its efficient exploitation possible. Research in this theme looks at the history and economics of energy and its infrastructure in Russia, and at chances for a serious transition towards renewable sources of energy. Such a transition could not only secure the long-term energy security of Russia, but also serve as an impetus for broader modernisation and innovation in other areas of the economy.
