2022 – A Year of Turmoil for the World Energy

No one could anticipate that 2022 would be another year of turmoil for the world energy and particularly for BRICS countries. The lasting consequences of the COVID-2019 pandemic, the sparked military crisis in Europe, decline of immediately available oil and natural gas on the market along with uprising crisis in the U.S. economy create major uncertainties around the transition to clean or renewable energy supply.
