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

Inevitable Growth: New Renewable Energy Projects in Russia’s Regions
5 October 2017
14:00—15:15

Use of renewable energy resources has undergone rapid geographical expansion in recent years, becoming a key feature of the majority of regional initiatives. The active growth of this new segment of the electricity sector is due largely to the adoption in 2014 of a number of regulations at the federal level intended to stimulate the generation of electricity from renewable sources. The initial outcomes of wind, solar, and small scale hydropower projects implemented so far as decentralized energy systems have not only demonstrated their technical and environmental potential, but have also proven the economic viability of implementing energy facilities of this kind. Is it already possible to talk about the potential of replicating tried and tested solutions? Are regions ready to diversify their electricity generation infrastructure? Are renewable energy projects attractive from an investment point of view? What effect are renewable energy projects having on regional socioeconomic development?
