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, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

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 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Energy of the Future: Technological Solutions for Cities and Regions
3 October 2019

The spread of new technologies and devices is transforming the energy and utilities sectors: energy consumption trends are changing and demand for investment in creating new capacities is growing. On the other hand, depreciation and obsolescence of energy infrastructure and increasing security, environmental, and reliability demands on energy systems force city administrations to increase spending on system maintenance. New players and innovative business models (e.g. startups, telecom companies) are entering the energy sector. City and regional administrations are actively searching for new practical and innovative solutions. Moreover, city administrations must create conditions to turn their cities into platforms for testing new technologies and business models, including those within the traditionally budget-intensive segments of the fuel and energy sector. What technologies, solutions, and business models in the fuel and energy sector are most sought after in both cities and regions? How is that demand influenced by Russia’s unique characteristics? How can the reliability and security of existing systems be increased and their energy capacities expanded while reducing maintenance costs? What legislative changes are required for the implementation of new solutions and business models? What support must the government provide to stimulate this process? What practical stimulus instruments have already been developed and are being implemented?
