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.

Alternative Energy for Transport: Present and Future
4 October 2018
16:00—17:15
Russian Railways is undergoing a period of transformation, in which particular attention is being paid to innovative technologies powered by alternative sources of energy. As environmental directives become stricter, the company is actively working on developing and implementing gas motor traction rolling stock and traction rolling stock that utilizes batteries. When it comes to its infrastructure facilities, the company is increasingly implementing innovative environmentally clean technologies, shifting their facilities from getting heat and electricity from mazut and coal to using liquified natural gas and successfully implementing cutting-edge technologies such as heat pumps and solar collectors. As the commodity market for liquified natural gas (LNG) grows, Russian Railways has developed and is implementing a programme for switching automobile transport to LNG and creating a new generation of rail and switch locomotives powered by LNG.
• Batteries — when and where they will appear in Russian Railways?
• The creation of a switch locomotive with a battery for working in passenger stations in major cities.
• Heat pumps — a new trend or the future of distributed generation?
