Russia to Develop Renewable Energy Sector With US Help - US-Russia Council

08 Sep 2017

Russia could use the US's great experience in the renewable energy sector for its own projects, the president of the US-Russia Relations Council told Sputnik on Thursday.

VLADIVOSTOK (Sputnik) — US companies have a lot of experience in the renewable energy sector and could use it for cooperation with Russia if it moves away from oil and coal, the president of the Council for US-Russia Relations told Sputnik on Thursday.

"Even though I think oil and gas have proven to be probably the greatest sector of opportunity and will continue to be an opportunity. Concurrently, there are a lot of opportunities and I see a lot of interest on the Russian side in renewable energy and alternative energy. And that is an area certainly where there is good US expertise. So we need try to get more of that cooperation going," Derek Norberg said on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF).

The two-day EEF is currently ongoing in Vladivostok, drawing over 3,500 participants from more than 50 countries. Several world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, are attending the event. Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency is a general media partner of the forum.
