The EnergyNet NTI roadmap was approved in September 2016 by the Presidential Economic Modernization and Innovative Development Council Presidium. It aims to develop Russian smart energy technologies and help Russian companies lead the way on global future energy markets over the next 1520 years. The roadmap has already resulted in a number of pilot projects being implemented, improvements made to the regulatory framework and technical regulations, and a range of measures being taken to develop workforce potential. At the same time, new technology is developing across the globe at an ever-increasing rate. It will define the technological profile for equipment markets, software, engineering, and energy industry services. While this will magnify challenges for the Russian energy industry, it will also create additional opportunities to implement the roadmap and achieve overall innovative development. What results have already been achieved in the implementation of the roadmap? Which pathways to increasing the effectiveness of implementing the roadmap have matured in light of accumulated experience? What can be done to make energy companies and development institutions more engaged in the implementation of the roadmap? What additional stimuli and government support measures are required to increase the pace at which promising high-tech projects are implemented? How should measures outlined in the roadmap be transformed in this regard?
