The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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.

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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Global Challenges and Opportunities in Electric Power
13 October 2021
In 2016 the Paris Agreement on climate change, which aims to provide a framework and objectives for governments around the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby contribute to a reduction in average global temperatures, was adopted by 196 parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, including Russia. The world has already set about implementing it in practice, and many countries have declared carbon neutrality goals, which they are working towards by rapidly developing new energy technologies, electric transport and renewable energy. In 2020 alone, around 280 GW of wind and solar power was commissioned globally. By 2030, around 1,000 GW of renewable energy capacity is expected to be commissioned each year. Russia supports global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, with over 80% of the country’s electricity generated from sources with a low greenhouse gas emission factor, including hydroelectric power plants, nuclear power plants, combined-cycle power plants, and combined heat and power generation. The share of solar and wind generation in the country's electricity mix remains very low, though this does mean that there is huge potential for further reducing the Russian electric power industry’s carbon intensity. What is the carbon intensity of the Russian electric power industry compared with Europe? How far can the Russian and global renewable energy sector be scaled up in the decades to 2050? What are the capabilities of hydroelectric power plants in contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions? What are the future prospects for nuclear energy?
