The short version. Full version see here. 

Russia is a party to the Paris Climate Agreement, under which member states have committed to halving global emissions by 2050 compared to 1990 levels, which should keep the increase in global average temperature below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and prevent the risks of adverse climate change. change for the entire planet.
The Russian energy sector as a whole is distinguished by a high share of environmentally friendly energy sources (39.3% is low-carbon power generation, of which nuclear power plants account for 19.7%, hydroelectric power plants - 19.1%, RES - 0.5%). Another 47.7% of electricity is generated from natural gas, which also has extremely low carbon dioxide emissions.
The Russian government has decided to extend support programs for both large renewable energy facilities and small renewable energy generation facilities for the period until 2035, after which it is expected to achieve "grid parity" and the cost of electricity generation by these facilities will be equal to the average cost of electricity received by consumers from the external network.
At the same time, Russia is studying the possibility of implementing projects not only for small HPPs, but also for other environmentally friendly hydro-generating capacities - large HPPs with an installed capacity of more than 50 MW. Work has been carried out to update the list of priority projects for the creation of hydroelectric facilities.
The possibility of constructing 8 HPP projects with a total installed capacity of about 4.7 GW, located in the regions of Siberia and the Far East, and 6 PSP projects with a total installed capacity of about 6.5 GW is being considered.
