Russia experiments with alternative sources of power

Russian scientists will carry out an experiment in using alternative sources of power in the Arctic.

If it is a success this project could be used to provide electricity to remote areas of Yakutia, a republic in the north-east of Siberia, the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences has told ITAR-TASS.

The site of the experiment will be an island in the delta of the River Lena where strong winds blow incessantly.

The construction of a new research station, the most powerful one in the Russian Arctic, will be completed there in the next two months.

Scientists are planning to use a wind generator as the source of power.
