Current therapy: RF can double the supply of electricity to Kazakhstan

Russia is ready to double its electricity exports to Kazakhstan in November 2021, said Inter RAO (a monopoly in the supply of electricity from the Russian Federation abroad). The company will carry out supplies at market prices, their increase is associated with the risk of a shortage of electricity in Kazakhstan in the coming winter. The lack of electricity in the country is mainly caused by an increase in the number of miners - they put a heavy load on the energy system, noted in Inter RAO. Experts believe that such an increase will positively affect the company's income and its position as a major exporter in the region.

New research shows that electric cars are 30-70% cleaner than gasoline

The new study puts an end to the controversy over the relative cleanliness of electric and ICE vehicles. The authors calculated that over the entire life cycle of an EV - from the extraction of materials used to manufacture the car, to disposal - an electric car emits significantly less CO2 than a gasoline one. And this is true both for Europe, with its large share of renewable energy, and for, for example, India, which still consumes a lot of coal to generate electricity. The increased CO2 emissions from the production of batteries are compensated for in the first year of using the electric vehicle.
