A Nobel Prize winner will give a presentation on energy conservation in the Arctic at the Forum
Igor Bashmakov, Nobel Prize winner, Director of the Center for the Efficient Use of Energy, announced his participation in the work of the VIII International Forum "Arctic: Today and the Future". He will give a speech at the panel session "Energy Supply in the Arctic: Technologies and Innovative Solutions".
Energy is one of the key sectors of the polar region, which is important both for the economy of the Arctic and for its social sphere. Traditional schemes for the supply of electricity from large power plants through networks in the Arctic have extremely limited application, and the development of the Arctic territories of Russia requires reliable sources of electricity, and due to geographical features, the region needs new solutions and technologies.
As part of the panel session "Energy in the Arctic: Technologies and Innovative Solutions", issues of modernization and expansion of the existing power grid facilities, the use of distributed generation, including renewable energy sources will be raised. In addition, the issues of integrated development of the energy system of the Arctic, small-scale nuclear energy and development prospects of floating NPPs, improvement of legislation in the field of energy and tariff regulation will be discussed.
