‘The Evolution of Energy Systems: a Global Perspective’ CIGRE to Hold Session at the Russian Energy Week

Panel discussion titled ‘The Evolution of Energy Systems: a Global Perspective’ will be held at the Central Exhibition Hall Manege during the Russian Energy Week (REW 2019) on 4 October 2019. The session is organized with the support of Rosseti FGC UES and the International Council on Large Electric Systems (CIGRE — the largest community of industry experts, bringing together professionals from 98 countries).

Heads of CIGRE are invited to participate, including Marcio Szechtman, Technical Council Chair (Brazil), Philippe Adam, CIGRE Secretary General (France), and Adam Middleton, Chair of the CIGRE UK National Committee. The discussion will be moderated by Andrey Murov, Chair of the CIGRE Russian National Committee and Chairman of the Management Board at FGC UES. Representatives of the Russian Ministry of Energy, Rosseti, Inter RAO, SO UES, NP Market Council Association, and EY will take part in the session as well.

Several trends are impacting the development of the modern electric power industry, some of which, at first glance, contradict each other. Among them are the development of renewable energy sources and the continuing demand for reliable electricity supply, the growth of new energy-intensive sectors of the economy and energy saving, variety of technologies and regulations, digitalization and cybersecurity, decentralization of energy systems, and the creation of international energy corridors and associations.

In different countries, these phenomena have different levels of penetration, with positive and negative consequences. The main question to be answered by the session participants is: how stable are these trends and which of them will determine the development path of the industry in the long term?

Russian Energy Week is organized by the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation and the Roscongress Foundation with the support of the Government of Moscow.
