He also noted that this year “the WPP should increase energy production up to 3 GWh per year, and this is a saving of 320 thousand cubic meters. m of gas or almost 800 tons of coal.

Kopin added that in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug the share of such energy is already about 36%. And by 2030, it will reach 70% due to the use of nuclear energy to supply energy to the largest investment project.
