20 april 2015

The Analytical Center became the program partner of the XIII Moscow International Energy Forum "Fuel and Energy Complex of Russia in XXI century".

"We have to take these modernization steps we were basically ready for, but postponed with "the big money", said Leonid Grigoriev, the Chief Adviser to the Head of the Analytical Center, speaking in a panel discussion "Structural modernization of the national economy: the new role of Energy of Russia".

According to the expert, the problem of the whole country's effectiveness and  in particular  of its energy sector is one of the most important today. "We have to  take prompt actions, which were being developed and were ready to be accepted", said the expert.

Mr. Grigoriev also noted that the stabilization of prices can be seen at the level of $60-70 p/b, and we must get used to living with such prices, as we produce 10% of the world's energy, 50% of which are exported. "Russia is a large producer and large consumer of energy, which causes largely the vector of its development and modernization", said the expert.
