Abstract

The global green agenda affected almost all spheres of human life: we sort the trash, buy electric cars, decarbonize the production, etc. The same we can say about energy. Today the world is in the energy transition from fossil fuels to green renewable sources of energy. Within this course, students will meet one of the most important processes of our time – climate change mitigation. In particular, we are going to touch on its energy context: What is “the energy transition” and why does it proceed? What will happen to oil in the future? What about nuclear energy? What is “energy security” and why do we need it? What role does Russia play within global energy politics? The course includes working on the online course “Russian Gas Strategy”. The professor and the students will discuss the topics from the online course as well as modern trends, problems, and prospects of the energy transition and Russian place within this process.
