The Digital Transformation of Russian Electricity
5 October 2017

Building a digital economy is one of the key strategic challenges faced by the President and Government of the Russian Federation today. A major focus is the question of how issues and aspects of digitizing the national economy can be rethought on a sector-by-sector basis. Data and the information that can be gleaned from it must be considered as an independent factor in production that can influence performance, labour productivity, and the reliability and security of energy supplies. The most significant challenge facing the electricity sector is increasing the reliability and performance of Russia’s power grid by introducing risk-oriented management. Digital technologies are making it possible to optimize the way that limited resources are used, and to secure an improvement in energy supply reliability indicators while maintaining current cost levels. Digitization is creating an opportunity to review how sectoral reports are compiled and presented and to automate oversight procedures, reducing the burden on business. The Russian Ministry of Energy is setting out its vision for the digitization of the electricity sector. Groups of experts are developing a targeted vision for the future of electricity, discussing the latest issues in the digitization programme, evaluating steps already taken to develop individual aspects of the digital transformation, and setting out plans to develop and validate industry-specific products and solutions created within this new technological paradigm. The results of their work will be presented for discussion. Among those contributing their opinion to the wider discussion of these materials will be heads of ministries and agencies responsible for implementing the ‘Digital Economy’ programme, and representatives from technology companies and development institutes, as well as other Russian Energy Week participants.
