If you read about Russia in the media, it’s usually not good news. Reinforcing stereotypes is, sadly, how the news industry works. So you won’t have much chance reading elsewhere about a report showing that Russia could become a “highly energy-competitive” region by getting all its electricity from renewable sources within the next 15 years. In the study, by researchers from Finland, the cost of electricity produced entirely from renewables is calculated to be half the price of modern nuclear technology and fossil-fuel burning if carbon capture and storage had to be used.
