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.

Challenges and Opportunities for the Global Power Sector in a New Era
4 June 2021
10:00—11:15

The global power sector is undergoing re-examination as efforts are under way to identify how to maintain competitiveness, flexibility, and reliability, both during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. As the economy contracted, so all forms of energy consumption declined across the globe. However, this unforeseen set of circumstances has not only given rise to major risks for the power sector, but also new opportunities. Renewable energy, particularly distributed generation, was one of the few sectors to have grown in 2020, and this trend was also evident in Russia. In 2020 — one hundred years on from the Soviet Union’s electrification plan — the Russian power sector undertook to identify new development strategies. Generation using renewable energy sources grew, decentralization continued, new management technologies were employed, and new market players emerged. Does this indicate a long-term trend, or a temporary phenomenon? Are the Russian and global power sectors ready for an overhaul? What role should the government play in these processes?
