Country Horizon: Russia

This report provides an up-to-date overview of Russian domestic and foreign policy issues related to the oil and natural gas markets. We also discuss the potential role of hydrogen in Russia’s short-term energy strategy. We present a succinct overview of the domestic determinants of Russian energy policy and then describe Russia’s ongoing and planned energy infrastructure projects. In doing so, we particularly focus on Russia’s recent efforts to bring its new hydrocarbon resources to global markets. We also discuss recent developments related to Russia’s dialogue with its key energy partners.

India’s Ambition to Achieve Net-Zero Emissions by 2070: Uncertainty and Opportunity

India’s Ambition to Achieve Net-Zero Emissions by 2070: Uncertainty and Opportunity

The special report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius (°C) above pre-industrial levels highlighted the importance of achieving net-zero emissions or a carbon-neutral future. There has subsequently been growing international pressure for net-zero commitments, with major emitting countries such as China and the United States (U.S.) announcing their targets of net-zero by 2060 and net-zero by 2050, respectively. Indeed, even major hydrocarbon producers, such as Saudi Arabia (net-zero by 2060) have joined the growing body of support.

The European Energy Collapse: A Chain of Contingencies or a Recurring Nightmare?

The European Energy Collapse: A Chain of Contingencies or a Recurring Nightmare?

Choosing to rely exclusively on renewable energy sources (RES) and eliminating hydrocarbons can lead to significant difficulties for an energy system. Challenges may arise when energy storage is insufficient to guarantee a stable power supply. The lack of suitable technologies to apply RES in certain sectors, such as maritime and aviation, can also create problems. These challenges were explicitly demonstrated in the United Kingdom and European Union energy markets in September and October 2021.
