Interview with Yuri Sergeev

By Tom Fries In February 2012, Arctic Institute contributor Tom Fries interviewed Yuri Sergeev about his work for the Bellona Foundation's offices in Murmansk, Russia. Yuri talks frankly about the many intractable challenges that confront the development of renewable energy in the Russian Arctic, and in Russia generally, focusing largely on regulatory uncertainty and simple lack of economic incentives to make the switch. Yuri's many stories paint a picture of a country with enormous potential, waiting for the right moment to become a formidable producer. You can find a non-flash version of the interview here.
