Strategic Goals and Initiatives

The Concern’s strategy is part and parcel of the business strategy of Rosatom State Corporation and is based on provisions of Russian Energy Strategy up to 2030.

Efficiency improvement of nuclear generation in the Russian Federation, closure of the nuclear fuel cycle, and international expansion, servicing of VVER power units abroad, comprise the main areas of the Concern’s strategic development.
