The economic analysis the scenarios of low carbon development of Russia by 2050 based on the TIMES-Russia model showed that development of low carbon sector, including bioenergy, can play a crucial role in reduction of carbon emissions. The deep decarbonization scenario ensures reduction of CO2 emissions by 83% below 2010 level by 2050.
