The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 133 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 70 countries worldwide.

Smart energy: challenges and strategies
15 February 2018

A digital revolution is taking place in all sectors of the economy. Only a small proportion of these transformations are noticeable to the consumer, whereas a large number of them are invisible to the naked eye, but will have a revolutionary effect on the efficiency of all economic processes. The fuel and energy industry is no exception. The widespread deployment of sensors, the Internet of Things, and the growth of computing power and artificial intelligence capabilities are making it possible to optimize manufacturing processes and reduce the costs of production. In addition to a sharp intensification of competition on the global energy market, this could lead to the emergence of new technological leaders and a loss in competitiveness among those who fail to participate in the digital race. For Russia, a global energy leader, these questions are especially relevant. How long will the resilience of traditional energy producers allow them to survive without implementing new breakthrough technologies? What is the price of transformation? What has already been done to lay the foundations for the coming IT leap, and what must Russia still do in order to preserve and improve its competitiveness in the global energy arena?
