  • SOURCE: | qwesa2big
  • The State Atomic Energy Corporation in Russia, Rosatom, is to play an active role in the Patronage Programme of the World Energy Council.The patronage programme will include the conduct of research works devoted to nuclear energy-related issues.

    An agreement to that effect has subsequently been signed between the two entities. It was signed by Rosatom’s First Deputy Director General for Corporate Development and International Business, Mr Kirill Komarov and the World Energy Council Secretary General, Mr Christoph Frei.

    As part of the agreement, Rosatom will also be joining a number of the council’s national member committees in countries of key interest to Rosatom.

    Mr Komarov said, “I hope that this cooperation between our two organisations, signified by the signing of this agreement, will allow us to draw the attention of the members of the World Energy Council to the value of nuclear energy which we regard as one of the key components of the global “green” energy of the future.”

    Mr Frei, on the other hand, explained that, “We are delighted to see Rosatom join as a Patron of the World Energy Council. Energy is in a grand transition and cooperation with new partners will help all of us to deepen our understanding of the implications and new opportunities arising from the new energy realities.”

    Rosatom is a Russian publicly-owned corporation which is the leader in the global nuclear technologies market. It brings together over 300 enterprises and organisations, including the world’s only nuclear icebreaker fleet. The company is tasked with implementing uniform state policy on the uses of atomic energy, as well as fulfilling the Russian Federation’s international obligations on the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
