Mr Komarov said, “I hope that this cooperation between our two organisations, signified by the signing of this agreement, will allow us to draw the attention of the members of the World Energy Council to the value of nuclear energy which we regard as one of the key components of the global “green” energy of the future.”
Mr Frei, on the other hand, explained that, “We are delighted to see Rosatom join as a Patron of the World Energy Council. Energy is in a grand transition and cooperation with new partners will help all of us to deepen our understanding of the implications and new opportunities arising from the new energy realities.”
Rosatom is a Russian publicly-owned corporation which is the leader in the global nuclear technologies market. It brings together over 300 enterprises and organisations, including the world’s only nuclear icebreaker fleet. The company is tasked with implementing uniform state policy on the uses of atomic energy, as well as fulfilling the Russian Federation’s international obligations on the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
