Alternative Energy Sources
Generation will reduce harmful emissions
By signing the Paris Agreement on Global warming in April this year, Russia, together with other parties to the Convention, is obliged to make every effort to prevent an increase in the world ' s average temperature by more than 2 degrees by 2100.
By 2020, our country needs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25 per cent of the 1990s and to reduce emissions by 5 per cent by 2030. Energy industries certainly have a leading role in this process.
As is well known, renewable sources (REE) generation is non-emission. Now, however, the share of the EVI in the total amount of the elephatory generation reaches 2 per cent. However, according to the Director of Minenergo Alexandre Novaka, by 2035, the share of VE in the energy mix under the RF Energy Strategy should be between 3 and 4 per cent. In view of the large hydrogeneration, it is a renewable energy issue worldwide, and now more than 18 per cent of the RE in Russia has been highlighted by the Minister.

However, the environment claims that large GECs do not participate in serious harmful emissions, but they do have an impact on the state Environment and climate in the region. Thus, since the construction of the Krasnoyar GEC, 175,000 hectares of land have been taken under water and Enisay has ceased to freeze and the winter air has become very wet. So, in terms of hydrogeneration for nature, it's much more useful for small GECs, where the reservoir is small, and mountain GECs, when the landscape itself provides a fall in water flows to turbine.
