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 179 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.

Electric Power Industry in the Far East: Expansion of the Competitive Pricing Zone and Integration with the UES of Russia
If we are talking about the grid, at the moment we would really like to move to the market. However, right now the regulatory model is probably the only model that we can exist in for various reasons

Global Challenges of the Energy Mix in 2022
We are living in a time of great uncertainty. At the same time, global energy consumption is set to rise by 30% over the next 10–15 years. The main challenge is working out how to ensure an affordable supply to meet such demand. I do hope that we won’t be talking at next year’s St. Petersburg International Economic Forum about a situation in which demand needs to be met amid a raft of energy crises on various local markets

Global Challenges of the Energy Mix in 2022
Without a substantial traditional energy sector, renewable energy systems cannot guarantee a reliable electricity supply – we are 100% sure of this. The transition to solar and wind systems, for example, requires other sectors to make large capital investments. And for renewables to be introduced on a large scale, grids will need to be constructed at not just an intense rate, but perhaps even at an exponential level

Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges
There are probably some nuances for us, and you can’t really compare us with our colleagues – we are sitting on a tariff, that is, we are a tariff-regulated company. [...] Now we get the money we need to operate the existing software equipment and to operate or partially replace Western hardware. If we’re talking about some kind of accelerated transition to domestic producers, then, of course, it is simply impossible with the money we have in the tariff menu. We have no additional source of funding to spend on this; we simply don’t have it. [...] We have two options: either there has to be some other source of funding and an accelerated transition to domestic counterparts, or there has to be an additional tariff increase and an adjustment in the tariff menus, i.e., a transition from the little money we are given for operating the existing systems to the money we need to replace these software products with domestic counterparts

Russian World-Class IT-Solutions: Our Response to Global Challenges
The biggest challenge we face is precisely in terms of technological systems. Generally speaking, the Rosseti Group is [...] 15 network companies. For more than 15 years, each of these companies has been doing its thing and implementing completely different systems because they are separate legal entities. At the moment, we have more than a thousand different technological systems, including domestic systems, Western systems, systems of major manufacturers, General Electric, Siemens, ABB, and so on, as well as smaller companies, and our own developments. In other words, there are thousands of different technological systems that for the most part work with each other within a single subsidiary company, but do not work within the entire group of companies. And the main task for us now, and this is our development [...] of an integration system, so to speak, a service bus, PC-20, on the basis of which we want [...] all our technological systems from all of our subsidiaries to come together in a service bus, so that at least we understand what it is to get all this data and then transfer it to a domestic solution and implement this system

The Electric Power Industry in the Changing Times
There are two solutions. First of all, it is domestic production. The second one is re-designing, applying other technical solutions that will enable the transition to domestic equipment. It may be 2–3 years, during which just Russian production facilities will completely replace the entire line of imported equipment. <...> A good option is for large companies to cooperate, become an anchor customer and show a common demand <...> for manufacturers. Then it will be easier and clearer for manufacturers to set up some production lines. They will understand the volume of the market, the volume of demand they see

The Electric Power Industry in the Changing Times
Excess capacities. We know that it is an existing problem. We have a large number of consumers that do not use their capacities to the full. It happens so that 60, 70 or even 80% of capacity is not used by the consumer. At the same time, the rest of the consumers pay for the operation of this infrastructure. When it comes to new construction, we do not redistribute the capacities. So, we build additional infrastructural and electric grid facilities. Yet again, consumers pay for it

It is the question of operation. We have analyzed our emergency stock. I know it for a fact that for the next two years we are fully covered in terms of emergency stock and operating our major equipment. <…> Our share of imported [equipment, – Ed.] is not high. We have been up to import substitution for a while now. In terms of new purchases, it is about 10%. It means that Russian equipment make 90% of cumulative equipment,

Challenges and Opportunities for the Global Power Sector in a New Era
Without introducing the latest technologies and changing our business processes, and without digitalization, which we talk so much about, our life is probably impossible at this point in time [...] We are currently using VR technologies that help in training our personnel and will introduce quite a few VR simulators to work in certain areas on our equipment. Unmanned aerial vehicles and satellite imagery also help us monitor power lines and control the construction of linear facilities. There are a multitude of technologies that can transform our industry. I should probably also mention energy storage systems

If we use composite materials, it will also have a very strong impact on the environment from a positive point of view because less CO2 is emitted during their production
