Russia Must Face Up to Alternative Energy – Mikhail Khodorkovsky

Mikhail Khodorkovsky shares his thoughts with NEFTE Compass on the future of Russia’s oil reserves, the need for Russia to develop alternative energy technologies and Russia’s role in the shifting oil and gas geopolitical landscape in light of alternative energy developments. Khodorkovsky posits that countries will lessen dependence on one supplier or a group of suppliers as more competition in the form of alternative energies begin to play a role. These changes will not only bring about new technological and economic realities, but improve and preserve human life as well.

Russia may very well experience an obvious reduction in the role of rents from the realization of hydrocarbons in the country’s budget. Russia needs to diversify its economy given the competitive challenges posed by a growing China, and, in the future, India.

NEFTE Compass is a leading weekly oil and gas publication focused on Russia, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caspian Sea.
