The list of green activities of the Russian Taxonomy also includes nuclear power, which generates no direct CO2 emissions putting it on a par with renewable sources
Minsk, 19 July – Neftegaz.RU. Nuclear energy
plays the key role in resolving economy decarbonization problems, Deputy Director of Rosatom's Regional Center for Eastern Europe Vladimir Gorn made the statement during the Electric Transport Day organized by the Belarusian Energy Ministry in association with the the Russian corporation Rosatom
, BelTA learned.
On 16 July experts discussed electric transport development trends in Belarus as well as the new opportunities the commissioning of the Belarusian
nuclear power plant opens up for Belarus from the point of view of transport decarbonization
The number of personal electric vehicles
rises fast in Belarus as well as the number of electric buses.
Trucks and loading vehicles are becoming electric, most of the vehicles are of Belarusian make at that.
Transport decarbonization is a significant step for Belarus to honor its commitments regarding the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
within the framework of the Paris Agreement
Vladimir Gorn said:
Nuclear energy plays the key role in resolving economy decarbonization problems
Nowadays NPPs represent one of the most reliable sources of clean energy
Belarus has chosen safe nuclear energy as the national energy strategy
It is a decision of strategic importance that will allow providing the country's economy with a reliable source of energy for many years in addition to helping the country reach the sustainable
The development of energy accumulation systems that will allow charging electric vehicles reliably and fast is an important factor for faster growth of the sector.
, part of Rosatom's TVEL Fuel Company, specializes in that.
RENERA Director General Dmitry Serebryakov said:
A new age of green transport transition has begun
World corporations intend to make more electric vehicles and fewer automobiles with internal combustion engines
For us as a producer of accumulation systems based on lithium-ion batteries it is a signal that heralds the start of revolutionary processes
-ion batteries as part of electric transport have become popular
recently due to a number of advantages, they do not require expensive service, they can be charged from a common power socket, and need no special room for charging.
They boast high energy density and can discharge up to 90% of their capacity without power reduction
