Russia ranks second in the world for undeveloped hydropower resources, with only 19% of it currently utilised. However, hydropower lies at the core of the global energy transition.
A large proportion of Russian hydropower is rooted in the history of the country. Today, hydropower has transformed into a sustainable legacy. The session will bring together representatives of major global energy partnerships, as well as the two largest Russian hydropower producers to discuss the potential of hydropower in Russia’s energy transition.
