Abstract

This AEI, report titled “Too much energy? Asia at 2030″ strives to shed light on these uncertainties with the aim of providing realistic scenarios for the global energy outlook to 2030. The report’s Russia chapter finds that Russia will remain one of the world’s top energy producers and exporters, but its energy future will hinge on several factors outside of Moscow’s control, including Western energy sanctions and European regulations. Should Europe shift away from dependence on Russian energy, the Kremlin will feel more pressure to court China.
