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 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

Investment in the Sustainable Development of the Energy Sector: New Opportunities and Current Obstacles
3 October 2019

By 2022, with the launch of the last nuclear power plants built as part of the Capacity Supply Agreement, the first large-scale investment cycle in Russia’s modern energy sector will be complete. The goal of modernizing Russia’s generating capacities is far from complete, but it now faces new global challenges: the digital revolution, environmental protection, and changing consumer profiles. As such, the market must now determine what development path the industry will take. Will the existing centralized power supply system be preserved, with the domination of traditional energy companies, the preservation of existing network infrastructure (with minimal changes), and the same pools of consumers and consumer profiles? Or will the industry change more noticeably due to rapidly developing technologies in various spheres and modern global trends, with banks serving as key partners in this transformation? What are the main industry- and economy-wide issues that will need to be addressed in this new energy investment cycle? What factors will play a role in determining which development scenario will prevail? What is the investment potential of the industry’s development and how are financial institutions preparing? Will the industry continue to undergo widescale changes within the current energy market model or will it need to undergo a complete transformation? What do the government and market participants need to do to create a comfortable climate for the implementation of modern technologies in the creation of new energy sector markets?
