But amid the turmoil over the Obama-Xi climate deal, it`s easy to forget that 10 years ago, Russia surprised the international community by picking up the Kyoto Protocol, a binding multilateral climate agreement that forced wealthy nations (at the time without China and India, two of the biggest greenhouse gas polluters) to cut average emissions by 5% compared to 1990. The Kyoto Protocol remains the only binding international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the world. On this occasion, Gazprom`s newly found interest in the Prestige is to become a „great ecological power” (velikaya ekologicheskaya derzhava) that prompted Russia to support the agreement. But now that China is finally ready to work on climate change, India has become the biggest wild card ahead of the Paris talks in December 2015. At present, India has an uncompromising stance on further emission reductions. But if climate negotiators want a truly global deal, they need to get India on board. During 2018, energy-efficient schemes were implemented. These include GDS turbo-exploders for liquefaction gas and power generation, as well as the use of CS waste heat recovery technologies. In addition, innovative technological projects have been implemented, including through the use of the mechanism of energy service agreements. To power the Gazprom Group`s isolated facilities, stand-alone power plants, such as gas turbine plants, including APG plants, are used.
