The Moscow stage of the All-Russian Energy Conservation Festival #BrighterTogether, which is being held as part of Russian Energy Week, has opened in Gorky Park.
Guests at the site of the event, which is dedicated to the celebration of City Day, were presented with an interactive mock-up of Moscow with a diameter of 27 metres with copies of the city’s landmarks, illuminated streets, buildings, and structures. City residents could see copies of the Kremlin wall, the high-rise building of Moscow State University, and the skyscrapers of Moscow City with height not exceeding six meters. Water buses and the Crimean Bridge were visible on a miniature copy of the Moskva River. The exhibit also included copies of the Moscow Ring Railway (MRR) with a running Desiro RUS train and the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) with moving cars. All the details of the layout are interactive: guests could turn on lights and control various components of the mini-city. A lecture hall was set up near the mock-up of the city where industry experts told people about the country’s energy system and explained basic concepts of energy conservation.
