Russian gas policy speeds up hydrogen projects

In the story published by the Finnish broadcasting company, YLE, Mikhail Krutihin, energy market expert at RusEnergy, a Russian energy company, says that Russia is now using three methods of blackmail to get concessions from the EU on Ukrainian policy and sanctions. Instead, the result may be the opposite of what Russia would like: The EU will only accelerate its transition away from fossil energy provided by Russia.

Matti Malkamäki, the CEO of Aurelia Turbines and a member of the Finnish Hydrogen Cluster Monitoring Group, which promotes the hydrogen economy in Finland, agrees.

- It has clearly accelerated the transition to renewable energy. Now there is a growing understanding of what needs to be done to increase security of supply and energy self-sufficiency," Malkamäki emphasises.
