Russians have an answer to the UK energy crisis: With the United Kingdom in the grip of a debilitating energy crisis, a growing number of observers believe that the current situation highlights the risks of Europe’s over-reliance on Russia for energy.

“It is important to emphasise that Russia has some of the largest giants of gas deposits in the world with hundreds and thousands of kilometres of pipelines to be able to supply places like Europe.” said Coventry University academic Dr Babatunde Anifowose.

“So now Russia has what we need in the UK. And Russia can help by supplying the quantity that is required in the UK. So, in a way, I would say that Russia does have some solution to the crisis in Europe generally. But what we need to look at as well is how people use energy.”

“Recent reports focus on people’s behavior change, so for example, switching transport mode. So instead of driving your car to work or to supermarkets you switch to non-motorised transport options like cycling, walking or even scooters.”  added Dr Anifowose who is the Chair of the Engineering Professionalism Comittee of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) And a Chartered Environmentalist with the Energy Institue, London.

“That could lead to 8% reduction in carbon dioxide that is available in the atmosphere.”
