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.

Greening Transport: Electric Vehicles and Hydrogen
13 October 2022
16:15—17:30

The transport sector generates over 20% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. The global energy transition that is gaining momentum primarily aims to combat climate change, but new solutions need to be actively implemented to this end. The development of the electric vehicle and hydrogen transport industry significantly contribute to the decarbonization of the economy. Over the past 10 years, the number of electric vehicles in the world has grown from just a few to more than 10 million. At present, Russia is producing electric vehicles for public transport. In addition, a segment of electric vehicles is taking shape with models of different levels of readiness. For its part, hydrogen transport is still only in its earliest stages, however the development and scaling of such technologies in the foreseeable future will help to make hydrogen competitive as an energy source compared with traditional fuels, which will confirm its status as the ‘new oil’ of the future. How can electric vehicles and hydrogen transport contribute to decarbonization? What will be the next technological challenges and barriers? What market share might such vehicles occupy in the near future? How much will an electric or hybrid car and charging infrastructure cost? What segments of the transport industry will hydrogen take over? How will Russia develop these segments?
