Over time, Europe will be able to reduce its dependence on Russian gas. This view was shared with RIA Novosti by Alexander Amiragyan, head of the Fuel Economy and Energy Complex division of the Center for Strategic Studies Foundation.
“One of the three action directions of this plan is to accelerate the development of renewable energy sources, which will ensure energy security in the region and ultimately reduce energy prices … However, it should be understood that these measures will not have an impact. It takes effect immediately, in a few years at best,” the expert said.
According to the expert, Europe is now moving towards the development of solar energy and environmentally friendly hydrogen consumption. In addition to being a raw material in the industry, natural gas is also used in electricity production at home. According to Amiraghyan, European countries will be able to extract Russian gas from their markets, but it will take a long time.
But while Europe contemplates a cloudless future of renewable energy, Tsargrad wrote that Estonia is complaining about high heating prices. Gas bills there increased 15 times.
