Green energy revolution will allow Russia to make good money

In the last couple of decades, Russian the economy "Prophesy" imminent collapse. This is due to the fact that we are allegedly "tightly addicted" to the "oil needle" and are not going to change anything. The last and crushing blow to Russia, from the point of view of various experts, should be dealt by the "green revolution" that has swept the minds of the Western establishment.

However, this time, as before, the aforementioned specialists are greatly mistaken. Firstly, we are not so dependent on that very "needle". The oil and gas share in the total budget revenues at the end of last year amounted to only 28%. Secondly, Russia not only does not impede the "green trend", but also supports it by developing alternative energy, as well as hydrogen projects.

In addition, there is another important nuance that will allow our country in the era of "green energy" not only not to go broke, but also to make money. The point is that the transition to a "promising trend" also requires certain resources. In particular, copper, as well as nickel, lithium and a number of other metals may become the "new oil" in the near future.

As for copper, its cost in world markets reached its maximum in 2011 and is not going to stop. At the same time, thanks to the growth in the production of electric vehicles, the demand for nickel, according to some experts, by 2040 will grow from the current 92 thousand tons per year to 2,5 million tons.

Today Russia is in fourth place in the world in terms of nickel reserves and in third place in terms of copper reserves. Consequently, in the era of "green energy", our economy will feel quite comfortable. For reference, we are already in 7th place in terms of proven oil reserves.

However, our country can make money not only on raw materials for electric vehicles, but also on chargers for them. The latter are already being produced by our KRET concern. At the same time, the cost of domestic charging stations, which are able to replenish the stock of an electric car battery in just 24 minutes, is 20% lower in comparison with foreign counterparts.

    Frankly speaking, you are already rather fed up with this empty talk about their "green energy". Of course, it is necessary to develop alternatives, but it is not worth it to enter stupidity. Extraction of raw materials for their "green energy" - well, never an environmentally friendly production. Nickel, copper and others do not grow on wood in finished form, this ore must be mined, smelted, etc. Batteries in our time, too, are never a panacea for salvation! Their production is also not in a green meadow, like a flower wreath, is being done, it is also a very harmful production. And their work leaves much to be desired in seasons that are not greenhouse for them. Lithium and other metals are rare earths! They are called RARE EARTH, that is, there are few of them, and they also do not grow on a tree.
    As I understand it, all this their gimmick is started for the following: either they will arrange earthly paradise for themselves, and everyone else will work for them in a far from environmentally friendly environment, or they simply want to bring down the price of resources and / or squeeze out competitors. And yes, there are not so many resources in Werope itself .... so think about what all this is for.

    Yes, the empty tryndezh about all kinds of collapse is already tired.
    Yusa, dollar, biden, England, Europe, Ukrainians, Putin, ruble, euro, Lukashenka - all the media have already managed to predict the collapse more than once.

    But in fact, the fortune of the first hundred Forbes is constantly growing ...

    our country can make money not only on raw materials for electric vehicles, but also on chargers for them

    For the last 20 years, I have been waiting and hopeful. When will success in our economy affect the well-being of our citizens? And then everyone is boasting, but this has no effect on salaries and pensions.

        Judging by the salaries and pensions, we have only Moscow working in Russia.

            I told him about salaries and pensions, and he told me about "donors".

    Green energy revolution will allow Russia to make good money

    Yes, the rise in oil prices from $ 40 to $ 70 per barrel made it possible to "earn" on hot free school lunches.

    Green energy - solar, wind, electricity and other energy sources are expensive and not always applicable due to climatic conditions, especially in the Russian Federation.
    This trend strongly resembles the same advertising campaign with freon or biofuels. What damage was caused by the expansion of cultivated areas for biofuel and how stupid imitation turned out for the Russian Federation is clearly shown by statistics. Today, the Russian Federation intends to step on the same rake - a program of mass production of electric vehicles and a network of electric filling stations, for example. This is good in metropolitan areas, but not in the country.
    Real green energy is nuclear energy and cold thermonuclear fusion that does not have any negative side effects, and the Russian Federation is a world leader in this regard.
    The only problem in nuclear power engineering is the disposal of radioactive waste. Partially recyclable, but this increases the cost of the generated energy. The other part is stored for eternal storage - also not an option.
    Alternatively, loading spacecraft that have exhausted their resource and sending them to the Sun, during the flight to which everything is disposed of naturally and without any consequences.

      I agree with you. By the way, about

      The only problem in nuclear power engineering is the disposal of radioactive waste.

      Already in the Russian Federation, it seems, has also been resolved, the BN-800 was put into operation, which operates on spent fuel from VVER-1200. I can't give links, but somewhere on YouTube there is a video in more detail about the operation of BN series reactors and the preparation of fuel for them from spent material for VVER reactors. So the waste storage facilities will also be reduced and put into operation.

      I remember once in the year 2015 I went with a colleague to a store where they sold, among other things, sets - solar panels, well, plus to them, constant-to-change conversion units, battery packs, chargers and so on. For the sake of interest, we took prices and asked about the average service life, and at our leisure we calculated how much the installation would cost for our house (I don’t remember the estimated power consumption, approximately 8-10 kV) and taking into account that the entire system will work according to the declared characteristics (which , of course, far from so, if only due to the fact that the current from the panel strongly depends on the angle of sunlight to the surface, cloudiness, dustiness of the panels, and so on). In general, according to the results of the calculation, it turned out that for such money, it would be possible to "burn" electricity to the full (at the same 8-10 kV at a price at that time for our region of 2.75 rubles / kV for rural areas) during 25 years! And yes, we counted the service life of these panels as 15 years. (Such data were given to us by the manufacturers).
      In general, they can only be used in very sunny regions, or as a recharge, the same street lighting lamps. In short, they have their own niche defined, but the panacea for saving mankind in terms of ecology is 100% nonsense.

    Rather, to lose. On the additional taxes of Europe, which she will soon introduce on our exports. For oil, gas ... And the cunning will direct these taxes to wind turbines and solar panels. Its own production, but on a cheap slave from China. And they will vtyuhivat us for fabulous money, for absolutely irrelevant for Russia spending. Unobtrusively forced to repeat the "green energy." And "ours" will in this case, of course, assert "that everything is fine ... beautiful marquise". You don't need a knife on a fool ...
