Hydrogen Agenda in Russia during Economic War with West

Hydrogen Agenda in Russia during Economic War with West

A number of nations already view hydrogen as the dominating scenario of the future of the global energy sector. Notwithstanding the fact that there is no global hydrogen market to date; that demand for it is highly local; and that many technological problems have not been solved.

Hydrogen euphoria was also observed in Russia. A huge number of government documents were passed that were intended to encourage the beginning of industrial production of hydrogen in Russia. The government even compiled an Atlas of hydrogen production projects; the establishment of entire hydrogen clusters was announced.

Developments since 24 February have caused a U-turn. One may now forget about plans to export hydrogen to the EU, just like ideas of technological partnership with the “collective West”.

However, the subject of hydrogen is by no means dead. The Cabinet is not removing hydrogen production from the agenda. Supporters of the export strategy assure that China’s market will be quite enough. Other lobbyists argue that reliance must be on developing domestic consumption and that new demand must be created, if virtually from scratch. After all, hydrogen is an opportunity to obtain and distribute government subsidies. This is also of interest to quite a few corporations that keep on defending hydrogen too.

The new report describes the following hydrogen subjects:

Green Agenda in Russia during Bitter Conflict with West
After February 2022 the agenda was radically rewritten. Western companies began leaving Russia en masse, economic relations with the West were drastically reduced, and the Russian economy began to be pushed violently from the global economic space, hemmed in by sweeping sanctions. All that was, to put it mildly, not the best background for talking about ESG. Especially because tasks of survival and stability under unprecedented pressure became the priority in the economy. In late 2022, however, attempts to reanimate the ESG agenda already became obvious. The message is put across insistently that it is important to Russia regardless of the foreign policy situation. While earlier the “green pivot” was seen as an opportunity to attract Western investors and their technological solutions to Russia, now Keynesian reliance on domestic manufacture is discussed.
