"Oddly enough … it is sure, not all know: at us on Far North solar panels are used, including for heating of oil pipelines - in order that oil does not freeze there, and in the conditions of Far North these solar batteries are used for heating of oil when pumping oil on pipes", - TASS quotes the Russian President.
Thus, he concluded, the traditional power and renewable energy resources are among themselves connected, "and they will go even many decades hand in hand, together". "It concerns, by the way, and solutions of environmental issues, the same emissions [in the atmosphere]", - Vladimir Putin noted.
According to the Russian leader, the Russian Federation pays much attention to development of renewable energy resources.
"More recently after all Russia lagged behind in this plan a little. And now, let us assume, our solar panels are convinced as the best in the world on quality, on service life and by efficiency", - Putin told, having urged representatives of other countries to think of using these products. As the head of state noted, it is about production of one of the private Russian companies which initially purchased the Swiss firm in this sphere then finished technology and transferred production to Russia, and "now promoted very much far - became one of world-best".
