The study focused on three thematic areas: the conversion of solar energy into electricity; the conversion of wind energy into electricity; transformation of biomass into thermal energy and electricity. The project was implemented using a set of methods, including bibliometric analysis, text-mining, analysis of publications, expert surveys, seminars and interviews, STEEPV analysis (assessment of social, technological, economic, environmental, political and cultural factors or value factors), scenario and applied political analysis.
As a result of the work, the most significant trends and uncertainties that could affect the development of renewable energy in the world and Russia in the next 15-20 years have been identified and, with their consideration, possible scenarios for its development in Russia have been formed. In addition, in the case of every scenario realisation, the proposals for domestic companies and public authorities were developed. The publication is intended for managers, researchers, teachers, graduate students, students and all interested in the development of renewable energy.
