Preface by Maurizio Melani
In the Russian Federation, the energy sector – with oil and natural gas as main pillars — holds a position of primary importance, to such an extent that we can talk about a real dependence. A considerable portion of the country’s GDP, in fact, comes from the energy exports towards the European Union, the Former Soviet Republics and Asia, and the Government’s geopolitical interests often follow or coincide with those of its energy policy. After a brief historic digression aimed at identifying where the relevance of today’s Russia’s energy sector originates from, this dissertation delves into the examination of the country’s energy policies as a whole and under different perspectives. In particular, several factors are taken into consideration: the data and characteristics Russia’s energy market; the relationship of interdependence with the European Union; the current status of the renewable energy sector in the country; the interests and activities in the Arctic region with all the related consequences and development; and the relation between the country’s energy policy
and its renewed geopolitical interest towards North East Asia and the Middle East.
