Russia's proposed roadmap is a holistic approach to developing its hydrogen economy, encompassing strategic planning, state support, industrial development, scientific research, legal framework enhancements, human resource development, and international collaboration.
Russia's proposed roadmap for the development of the hydrogen economy encompasses a comprehensive strategy, as outlined in the document:
Strategic Planning and Monitoring of Hydrogen Developments: This includes the development of a concept for hydrogen energy in Russia, setting up a project office for its implementation, forming an inter-departmental working group, and establishing procedures for monitoring hydrogen projects.
Incentivizing and Providing State Support to Hydrogen Energy Projects: The roadmap proposes various measures to promote the use of hydrogen technologies across different sectors, state support for pilot hydrogen energy projects, and the development of clusters and test grounds for complex hydrogen-based energy technologies.
Industrial Build-Up: The document highlights the need to select and actualize priority projects for hydrogen energy developments and to set up hydrogen energy engineering centers.
Implementation of Hydrogen Energy Priority Pilot Projects: This involves the establishment of carbon-free hydrogen generation plants, development of methane-hydrogen turbines, and the introduction of hydrogen-powered railway vehicles, among other initiatives.
Science and Technology Development for High-Tech Solutions: The roadmap emphasizes the development and research of energy-efficient technologies for hydrogen generation, transportation, and storage. It also focuses on the research of greenhouse gas emissions in the hydrogen production chain.
Improvements of the Legal Framework and the National Standardization System: This section deals with the identification and actualization of documents within the national standards system related to hydrogen, as well as the development of safety concepts for hydrogen generation at nuclear power plants.
Human Resource Development: The roadmap proposes measures to analyze industry demand for hydrogen energy specialists, actualize higher education coursework for hydrogen energy, and introduce post-graduate and scientist programs in leading hydrogen energy research centers.
International Cooperation: Russia aims to strengthen bilateral cooperation with major hydrogen generator and consumer countries, promote its reputation as a supplier of carbon-free generated hydrogen, and enhance its participation in multilateral cooperation in the area of hydrogen energy.
In essence, Russia's proposed roadmap is a holistic approach to developing its hydrogen economy, encompassing strategic planning, state support, industrial development, scientific research, legal framework enhancements, human resource development, and international collaboration.
