A non-carbon East Siberia will not be under the decision of the authorities

The initiative to create a carbon-free zone in the region of Eastern Siberia was made at the beginning of 2016 by the plenipotentiary plenipotentiary of the Russian president in the DFO Yury Trutnev. It is already clear that the idea of ​​a carbon-free Siberia is in the past, the authorities and experts have practically reduced the issue of creating a carbon-free market in the region "to zero." Almost all interviewed experts consider this decision to be the right one, notes “Kommersant”

According to experts and experts, it is necessary to talk about the implementation of targeted pilot projects, related primarily to the development of renewable energy in remote regions of the country.

As an example, you can consider Evenkia or the Republic of Yakutia in the Far Eastern Federal District, experts say, where it is more than reasonable to work out mechanisms to control greenhouse gas emissions, check out new developments to reduce emissions.

The creation of “showcase” low-carbon regions — for example, carbon-free Eastern Siberia — is directly compared to the creation of Potemkin villages, the newspaper writes.

The Ministry of Natural Resources, which supported the idea of ​​a carbon-free Siberia, could not prove the feasibility of the project of the Ministry of Energy, which, together with a number of companies (mainly the fuel sector), categorically objected to this initiative, fearing the growth of administrative and financial burden on the business in the region.

Also, the essence of the “carbon-free Siberia” project was sharply criticized by opponents of the Paris Climate Agreement (for example, the Institute for Natural Monopolies, representatives of the coal sector, the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs).
