The Russian government has approved a concept for the development of hydrogen energy. By 2050, it is planned to export up to 15 million tons of gas.

As the NEDRADV, the government of the Russian Federation considers hydrogen as a promising energy carrier that can be used to develop a low-carbon economy, as well as reduce the negative impact on the environment. The concept for the development of hydrogen energy involves the creation of at least three regional production clusters: North-West (supplies to the EU), East (will provide supplies to Asia) and Arctic (power supply to the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation).

During the first stage (2021-2024), it is planned to create hydrogen clusters and launch pilot projects. By 2024, hydrogen energy will be supplied to the domestic market, and up to 0,2 million tons of clean gas will be sent for gas export.

During the second stage (2025 to 2035), it is planned to create large export-oriented hydrogen production facilities. The volume of supplies abroad should grow to at least two million tons.

At the third stage (2036-2050), the cost of producing gas from renewable energy sources will approach the cost of producing from fossil raw materials. At the same time, Russia will become one of the largest exporters of hydrogen, the volume of supplies by 2050 will reach 15 million tons (in the optimistic scenario - 50 million tons).
