Vladimir Putin noted the importance of the BRICS Energy Research Cooperation Platform
Moscow, November 19 (By Han Xianyang, Guangming Daily) – The Russian Ministry of Energy quoted the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the XII BRICS Summit of heads of state and government as saying, BRICS is developing its own Energy Research Cooperation Platform.
“Intensive contacts have been underway between our academic and scientific centers. Their coverage is truly impressive – from ocean and polar research to astronomy and artificial intelligence. Experts from the five countries carry out joint energy research: reports have been prepared on the projected development of the fuel and energy sectors in the BRICS countries until 2040,” said Putin.
In 2020, at the 5th Meeting of BRICS Energy Ministers, the Heads of Delegations approved the first studies - “BRICS Energy Report” and “BRICS Energy Technology Report”.
“Reports of the BRICS ERCP will help us identify the areas of BRICS energy cooperation, as well as identify common approaches of our countries to the global energy agenda. According to the report, the role of the group in the global energy sector will continue to amplify and by 2040 BRICS will account for 41% of world energy consumption and production,” commented Deputy Minister of Energy Anton Inyutsyn.[ Editor: Zhang Zhou ]
