Russian Energy Week participants to discuss the future of electric power

An entire range of panel sessions dedicated to the development of all sectors of the electric power industry has been included in the Russian Energy Week 2017 business program.

Topics for discussion at the REW 2017 include: “Renewable energy development in Russia: Bigger scale, technology exports”, “Digital transformation of Russia’s electric power industry”, and “Inevitable growth: New renewable energy projects in Russia’s regions”. Senior executives of Russia’s biggest energy companies will participate, including Russian Grids, RusHydro, Fortum, T-Plus and others. “The programme to renovate the Russian electric power industry using contracts on the provision of capacity is nearing completion. The industry has acquired 36 GW of new power generation capacity. The tool used by the government has proven its effectiveness”, said Denis Pasler, Chairman of the T-Plus Management Board. “But less than 15% of the Russian electric power industry has been modernized and thermal power generation has been modernized least of all. The growing deterioration of thermal supply facilities requires new large-scale investments and the appropriate government decisions. After all, the public’s quality of life depends directly on the stable operation of thermal generation”. Pasler said he is confident that the REW Forum will provide industry leaders with a unique platform to find solution to this and other key problems facing the electric power industry.

Participants in one of the key panel discussions, “The future of electric power: How energy systems and consumers will change?”, will project changes in power supply and demand, talk about potential breakthrough power technologies, and discuss how to encourage innovation in the industry. Deputy Energy Minister of Russia Vyacheslav Kravchenko has confirmed that he would attend.

The Russian Energy Week will also host a Mayors’ Summit for Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Urban Development. Its program includes the signing of cooperation agreements on energy efficiency between Russian cities and international organizations. Besides Russian municipal officials, their ranking colleagues from Greece, Vietnam, Albania and Italy will attend.
