Mikhail Mishustin approved the Concept for the Development of Hydrogen Energy, prepared by the Russian Government. The implementation of pilot projects for the production and export of low-carbon hydrogen, the creation of world-class scientific centers, the introduction of domestic technologies, the revision of the regulatory framework, the development of international cooperation and staff training are among the proposed strategic initiatives and key measures.
The government also provides for the establishment of several hydrogen industrial and technological clusters. The North-Western one will specialize on the export of hydrogen to European countries and the implementation of measures to reduce the carbon footprint. The Oriental cluster will supply hydrogen to Asian countries and develop hydrogen infrastructure in the field of transport and energy. Arctic cluster will provide low-carbon power to the Russian polar region.
According to the Prime Minister, the development of hydrogen energy will reduce the loss of energy markets and support economic growth by creating new production elements and work places.
