EnergyNet is a roadmap for the technological transformation of the electrical energy sector
The main objective of the EnergyNet National Technology Initiative is a word that’s popular at the moment – ‘transformation’. Any technological changes in the real world have next-level consequences. And these consequences are, ultimately, economic and socioeconomic. The past two years have allowed us to see how technology has suddenly become perpendicular to action. In other words, it doesn’t mesh with the status quo in the energy sector, suddenly it’s posing a threat to traditional businesses and demands particular attention. On this note, EnergyNet has proven itself to be the most independent, transparent programme, free of regulations or lobbying, unlike any other platform in the industry — Oleg Grinko, Working Group Co-Head, Energynet NTI.
Road maps aren’t about the technologies themselves, they’re about changing our consciousness in the most abstract sense of the word, and it’s clear that all of these technologies are truly affecting business models — Alexey Texler, First Deputy Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation.
Everything that we had been putting into the EnergyNet roadmap two years ago had seemed so strange then, but now it’s being discussed at very respectable scientific conferences by heads of government companies — Dmitry Kholkin, Head of Project Center for Innovation Development, Strategic Research Center Foundation; Deputy Head of the Working Group, Energynet National Technology Initiative.
