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

Overcoming the Barriers with Energy Transition Technologies
14 October 2021
The global low-carbon agenda is a major determinate for climate policy in many countries. Governments can mitigate greenhouse gas emissions by adopting an integrated approach, taking advantage of all the opportunities and technologies aimed at low-carbon development, capture and mitigation (CCS/CCUS, SRM, CDR), higher energy efficiency and monitoring of emissions including CO2. Russia is among the countries in which low-carbon energy technologies are currently in active development. Decarbonization, decentralization and digitalization are main areas of development in the Russian fuel and energy sector, with the aim of making domestic goods and services competitive by reducing their carbon intensity. In order to achieve the goals of counteracting climate change and ensuring a strong presence on global high-tech markets, however, the country also needs to develop end-to-end technologies, including in extraction and use of rare-earth metals as well as in the digital sphere (Industry 4.0, smart grid). What are the technological challenges associated with the energy transition? What are there barriers to the introduction of low-carbon development technologies and what steps can be taken for removing them? What expertise, personnel and materials will be required in order to secure Russia's position itself as a key player on the global market for energy transition technologies? What are the opportunities for international cooperation?
