HONG KONG (Xianggang), September 26 (Itar-Tass) — Alternative energy sources will not prevail in the market, chairman of the Committee on Energy at the State Duma lower house of Russia’s parliament Ivan Grachev said at an international forum in Hong Kong.

The organizer of the event is the national Infoforum, specialising in information security. The conference is held with supported of the State Duma, the Russian Security Council, the Russian Ministry of Communications and Mass Media and a number of other departments.
