A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

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, 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 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 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.

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
Today, the global fuel and energy industry has a single task – to ensure the world economy develops with both affordable and clean energy sources. And both goals are equally important and must be solved in parallel. Greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced to prevent climate change, but we also have the goal of eliminating energy poverty

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

Science and the Fuel and Energy Sector Underpinned by Knowledge Development
We understand perfectly well that developing and rolling out groundbreaking new technologies requires significant investment. As a number of experts have noted, the greener the future we want to build, the greater the costs we will incur in building it. According to the International Energy Agency, global investments in green energy must increase by more than threefold to around USD 4 trillion by 2030 in order to decarbonize the economy. It is therefore extremely important that we bring in market mechanisms for non-budgetary financing in addition to the budget funds allocated for scientific and technological development

Science and the Fuel and Energy Sector Underpinned by Knowledge Development
We recognize that realizing the country’s potential in the technology race and retaining its status on the global stage is the direct outcome of the professionalism and competencies of the specialists working in the industry. The rapid technological development being seen today and the need for further scientific and technological development generate demand for new competencies and approaches to training high-tech professionals. One of the most important tasks at the present moment is training innovative technology and science specialists for the economy and energy of the future

Science and the Fuel and Energy Sector Underpinned by Knowledge Development
Work on high-tech development via contracts between the Government of the Russian Federation and major companies with state involvement began in 2019 on the instruction of the Russian President. One example is an agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and Rosseti, which outlines the development of advanced electric power transmission and a distributed smart grid system. In this case, Rosseti is acting not only as a major power grid operator, but also as a driver of technological development bringing scientific institutes on board

The Impact of Europe’s Green Pivot on Russian-European Cooperation in Energy
Even now we are working on obtaining the status of carbon emission verifier, an authorized agency that confirms the volume of emissions. In the long run, we see the need for accreditation in the European systems of greenhouse gas emission verification and we are open for discussions on this subject with our western partners, including European business associations. This work is important for possible future mutual acceptance of the Russian system in Europe and the European one in Russia

The Impact of Europe’s Green Pivot on Russian-European Cooperation in Energy
Additional risks for Russian exporters are related to the absence of any carbon footprint tracking system whatsoever, which is why European regulators have grounds to assess the carbon intensity of Russian products using the highest, most rigid standards. These risks may be offset if a national system of carbon regulations harmonized with global standards is developed

The Impact of Europe’s Green Pivot on Russian-European Cooperation in Energy
Even today, the fuel and power energy balance in Russia follows the low carbon logic of the future. Over half of the internal consumption in our country is that of gas, which is the most environmentally-friendly type of mineral fuel. In the production breakdown, the share of low carbon sources is over 80% and fully non-carbon sources, such as hydro stations, nuclear stations, sunlight and wind comprise over 40%
