Forecasting Regional Fuel and Energy Balances to Improve Investment Attractiveness
If we talk about the formation of a unified long-term forecast fuel and energy balance, it is currently impossible without the use of modern digital technology. Next year, we are planning to make a prototype of a software package that will enable automated calculation of the forecast fuel and energy balance, integrated with the state information system of the fuel and energy complex, based on the input data contained in the GIS FEC and allow modelling and forecasting balance changes based on various factors: pricing, transport accessibility, external factors, prices on external markets, and other factors

Forecasting Regional Fuel and Energy Balances to Improve Investment Attractiveness
We need to think about changing the methodology of forming the forecast fuel and energy balance, factoring in a longer planning horizon and, importantly, macroeconomic indicators and, as the current situation shows, foreign economic indicators as well. Today, it is methodologically quite difficult to collect a fuel and energy balance at the regional level because the collection of baseline data is set up differently in each region. Somewhere [there are] regional specifics, and somewhere there is simply no collection methodolog

International Energy Organization Dialogue: Predicting the Development of Energy and Global Markets
Representatives of countries that are highly dependent on the export of hydrocarbons need to be particularly careful when estimating future demand for oil and gas. Mistakes can be costly and can lead to the death of unnecessary investments or lost revenues for both oil and gas companies as well as national budgets [...] The Russian Energy Agency has started developing its own Russian long-term forecast for the development of global energy for the period until 2050. We want to evaluate the many emerging ramifications in terms of benefits and costs both for our country and for the world as a whole in such areas as the development of renewable energy sources, technologies for capturing and storing CO2, the production of blue and green hydrogen, electric transport, transport based on hydrogen fuel cells, and various types of electricity accumulation

International Energy Organization Dialogue: Predicting the Development of Energy and Global Markets
There are encouraging signs that energy is becoming more sustainable. The provision of access to electricity in poorer countries is accelerating. However, greater attention needs to be paid to expanding access to clean and safe fuels […] There is also a huge inequality in the supply of energy between different countries. The gap in per capita consumption of energy resources is as much as 100 times for electricity. For 80% of the world’s population, energy consumption per person is still below the level at which a further increase in energy consumption does not lead to a noticeable increase in the human development index

Growing Markets in the Renewable Energy Industry: The Potential for Russia to Export Renewable Generated Energy to Europe
Russia is already a leader in producing low carbon power across all major global energy systems. In our country, over 80% of energy is produced by way of nuclear power, hydropower, renewable sources of energy, and the most ecologically friendly extractive fuel – natural gas. Less than 13% of our power generation comes from coal. For comparison, that figure is less than in countries such as the United States of America, Germany, Turkey, China, and Poland
