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.

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.

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.

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region
Although we are drawing up master plans for 10-year periods, we have a development programme covering the period to 2030 and a heat-supply plan covering the period to 2035. However, when we [the investor – ed.] start counting our investments, we look three years ahead, or five maximum

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region
We need to make a list of technologies, collate best regional practices, and develop a more‑or-less unified model for calculating return on investment

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region
In my opinion, we need to look at the potential offered by technology in this area. The state is not willing to guarantee a return on investment without understanding what equipment will be employed

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region
Why is it that, as I see it, the renewable energy support programme is not totally applicable to isolated areas? These are places where there’s more wind, say, than anywhere else, and where there is fairly good potential. The wind turbines themselves have a very high capacity per unit. So, we don’t need 2.5 megawatt units, 4.5 megawatt units, or 5 megawatt units [there – ed.]

Green Energy in the Far East. Supplying Energy to Remote and Isolated Areas of the Region
Currently, the only available source of energy in isolated areas is diesel generation. Price is again a relative issue, and is mainly affected by the cost of transporting this fuel to the places it is needed. So, the success enjoyed by RusHydro in combining diesel with wind and solar installations – thereby reducing use of this fuel – is most interesting, and something that should be done as we move forward

The Russian Electric Power Industry: Identifying Opportunities
I would still like to do some fine-tuning of the banking instruments, and if that requires a change in the regulator, we are ready, we are open to communication. Let’s try to do that. <...> There could be some fine-tuning of the tax system, and there could be preferences

The Russian Electric Power Industry: Identifying Opportunities
I think the right concept is a rational balance of generation. <...> When we use the principles of minimizing the cost of electricity for consumers, price is only one factor. We are combining several factors. The second factor is the challenges facing Russia in terms of reducing CO2 emissions. <...> The third factor is ecology, obviously, we are not going anywhere, and we are not going to leave that behind. The fourth is the availability of technology, which is perhaps one of the most difficult issues when it comes to achieving self-sufficiency in terms of technology

Ash and Slag Wastes at Thermal Power Plants: How Can Energy Become the Solution?
A lot of experience in using [ash and slag waste, – Ed.] in constructionof highways, including those of regional importance. The concept used by colleagues in the framework of international experience is the concept of effective radius, where exactly this material should be used in the nearby areas from the burial site. All the more so, there is an analogue in Russia as part of measures to support renewable energy. When we were previously forming a scheme for the development of electric power in hard-to-reach isolated areas, we compared any technical solution for power supply to that of a renewable energy facility. At the same time, I think here we should also do and try to assess the economics, to make designers at the level of basic calculations compare with the possibility of using materials within the effective radius of ash and slag waste

Russian Energy System and Climate Agenda: Evolution or Revolution
I believe there should be package solutions not only for renewable energy, solar, and wind facilities. There should be [solutions] for hydroelectric power plants and for thermal power plants that are being modernized. Package solutions should be available for all types of generation. I think Russia has lucked out with its energy balance thanks to our fathers and grandfathers who diversified the energy balance in this manner,

The Future of Coal in a World Shaped by the Climate Agenda: The End, or a New Beginning?
Over the short term, i.e., from 2024 to 2035, we do not see Russia not having coal in its energy mix. Currently, it is not a particularly large share – around 12.5–13.5%, but will remain nevertheless. <...> looking ahead to 2050, we see coal generation accounting for around 4.5% of the energy mix. That is if there are no major changes in terms of modernization, moving to supercritical CO2 or carbon capture, or power station overhauls

Climate Change: Is it Still a Question of Money?
I hope that the microgeneration law will start actually working. This would mean that all of us as private individuals will have the right to use a solar panel at home. We have analysed the international experience and chose carbon-free certificates. We saw that they are used in 70 countries and drafted a bill
