Global Energy: Challenges and Sustainable Development

The Future of the Electricity Industry: How Power Systems and Consumers Are Set to Change

Panel discussion

Experts predict that global demand for electricity will increase by 25–30% in the next 20–30 years. The main sources of growth in demand will be residential and commercial properties, as well as industry and transport. Geographically speaking, India and Africa are set to see the fastest growth rates, whereas in OECD countries demand is expected to remain stable due to the development of the digital economy and improvements in energy efficiency, which is counterbalancing electrification. Nonetheless, the accuracy of these predictions remains in doubt due to a large number of uncertainties. Discussions are ongoing with respect to how rapidly electric car use will spread and new technologies for storing and transmitting energy will be implemented; how competitive generation from renewables will be once state subsidies from European countries come to an end; and how quickly environmental standards for energy companies will be toughened. How are different countries realizing their energy strategies in order to ensure energy security in these new times? What steps must Russia take to maintain its existing competitive advantages and leading positions in energy resource and technology markets? How will electricity demand and consumption change over the next 30 years? Breakthrough technologies in electricity: can we expect a ‘black swan’? Stimulating innovation in electricity: whose job is it? How is Russia’s power supply system set to change?

Finding a New Balance on the Oil Market

Panel discussion

Since oil prices fell in 2014, global producers have found themselves at a crossroads: should they help to balance the oil market by voluntarily limiting production, or continue to compete for market share, taking advantage of the exit of producers with high production costs? A number of countries, including both members and non-members of OPEC, have chosen the first option, and, as a result of voluntary limits on production, have succeeded in temporarily stabilizing prices. Other countries, which again include both members and non-members of OPEC, have taken advantage of the situation to expand into markets that are now less populated. Market unease is being contributed to by growing competition in the use of new production technologies and in energy consumption, which in the long term could significantly alter the energy balance and the configuration of the oil market.
What are the strategic consequences of tactics chosen in the face of the oil market surplus? What influence is oil market competition having on the spread of alternative energy sources and technologies; in particular, electric vehicles? What mechanisms for regulating the oil market – cartel agreements, sanctions, or international cooperation – demonstrate the greatest potential? What approach should oil market participants adhere to in order to make maximum use of their existing competitive advantages in production costs, geography, or infrastructure? Which is more important in the long term – the market or prices?

Global Energy: Challenges and Sustainable Development

The Role and Potential Development of Nuclear Energy in the Global Energy Mix

Roundtable

Current trends in the development of the world economy are focused on creating a new energy system that will entail a shift towards a careful and responsible approach to consuming the Earth’s resources through balancing technological development and preserving the natural environment. Building this low-carbon future will be impossible without developing nuclear power, one of the key components of green energy, a point that was particularly focused on during the Paris Climate Change Conference in 2015. Currently, only 30% of global energy is low-carbon energy, and 11% of this comes from nuclear power plants. How are specific countries and companies investigating options for achieving the optimal energy mix of the future, including through a combination of nuclear power and renewable energy sources? What environment needs to be created and what kind of efforts need to be made in order to develop nuclear energy, which could include the use of international cooperation mechanisms? Which aspects of developing nuclear energy require particular attention when launching and implementing a nuclear programme for long-term sustainable development?

Russia’s Foreign Energy Policy

Roundtable

Foreign energy policy is a key strategic priority for the Russian Federation. Its efforts in this area are not only helping to forge mutually beneficial trade links, but also ensuring energy security for the country and its partners. The implementation of international projects is strengthening the position of Russian companies in markets of interest, and raising the general level of competitiveness in the Russian energy industry. Furthermore, international cooperation in energy is helping to address current challenges in economic policy:
• Creating common energy markets within the Eurasian Economic Union
• Establishing the legal and political conditions in Europe for the smooth transit of Russian energy resources
• Developing transport infrastructure, reducing transit risks, and ensuring the competitiveness of Russian fuels
• Improving the efficiency of economic integration with countries in the Asia-Pacific region and increasing the supply of energy resources to growing Asian markets
• Promoting Russian interests in the outcomes of high-level multilateral events
Issues for discussion:
• The globalization of markets and ‘globally responsible’ energy policy – mutual influence and problems?
• Foreign energy policy as a system of long-term priorities and actions. The need to coordinate efforts to ensure predictability in global energy development.
• Russian foreign energy policy in a new environment: traditional and new directions.
• Alternative views of Russia’s role in global energy. New drivers behind traditional areas of foreign energy policy.
• Cooperation between Russian and foreign energy companies – what are the new roles and mutually beneficial prospects?
• The priority of economic viability in a time of sanctions. Attempting to work with foreign partners to adapt to negative conditions.
• Cooperation at the level of international organizations – positioning Russia and its potential contribution to a sustainable energy future?
• The role of old (OPEC, IEA) and new (IRENA, GECF) international organizations in the energy sector. Increasing the role of multilateral cooperation formats.

Safety in the Fuel and Energy Industry: New Challenges

Roundtable

Fuel and energy industry facilities are viewed as targets for terrorist attack owing to their importance to the national economy and the potential scale of the destructive consequences and impact on the public of such an attack. In order to avert potential threats, a regulatory framework has been developed for these facilities and is constantly being amended. Experts are particularly concerned by the accessibility of unmanned drones which could be used to damage facilities. A need is emerging to develop solutions which will offer effective protection for fuel and energy facilities from threats of this kind.

Issues for discussion:
• Regulations for safeguarding the security of fuel and energy sector facilities
• Enforcing and improving Russian legislation on the security of fuel and energy sector facilities (Russian Ministry of Energy, RusHydro, and other companies)
• Protecting fuel and energy sector facilities from unauthorized drone use (Russian Ministry of Energy, Kobra, Vidar, Stilsoft Group, Marine Complexes and Systems)

The Best Management Models and Practice for Major Construction Work in the Fuel and Energy Industry

Roundtable

Investments in Russia’s energy sector over the past five years have exceeded RUB 18 trillion. The sector accounts for more than 25% of all investment in the nation every year. Modernization programmes that are ambitious in size and timescale are currently being implemented in the petroleum refining and electricity industries, new petrochemical facilities are being constructed, projects to develop natural resource deposits in Eastern Siberia and hard-to-recover oil fields are under way, new pipelines are being laid, and transport capacity is being expanded to the west and to the east. Completing these projects effectively is key to ensuring the Russian Federation’s energy security and economic development. Yet there are a number of global and local factors that make the industry’s task more difficult. Over the past 50 years, in spite of all the technological breakthroughs, global productivity in major construction has barely increased. Whilst projects have become increasingly complicated, the methods and tools used to implement them have changed very little. According to McKinsey Global Institute, the level of digitization in the construction industry sits just above that of agriculture. As a result, an overwhelming majority of projects are experiencing considerable overruns in terms of completion date and budget and, when commissioned, the finished products often underperform. The successful implementation of megaprojects in Russia is being held back still further by a complex geopolitical situation, the fact that the domestic market for engineering, procurement, and construction contractors is at the early stages of development, the turbulence on the market for general construction contractors, the limited availability of highly competent project specialists to act as clients, and a number of specific regulatory limitations. What is the primary factor that is limiting the successful implementation of major investment projects in the Russian energy sector? Considering the current global political situation and development factors in the construction industry, which major investment project models would be most effective for the Russian energy sector (or its separate subsectors) in terms of meeting deadlines, staying within budget, and delivering quality products? In your opinion, what key role should the state play in improving the effectiveness of investment projects in the energy sector? Which new technologies are most promising and relevant to Russia in terms of increasing productivity in major construction projects?

The Role of Russian Railways in Ensuring the Efficiency of Fuel and Energy Companies in the Face of Unstable Currency and Raw Materials Markets

Roundtable

Russian Railways is registered as a natural monopoly in Russia, being an organization that transmits electricity to consumers. Russian Railways is a key player in the Russian electricity market and, based on the volume of electricity transmission services provided, is the second largest network operator in Russia after Rosseti. Russian Railways consumes around 8% of the Russian domestic diesel fuel market for its operations. Up to 95% of all coal mined in Russia is transported by train. With all that in mind, it is hard to overestimate the level of connection between rail transport and the fuel and energy industry in Russia. What has so far been achieved as a result of cooperation between Russian fuel and energy companies and Russian Railways? What are the prospects for further collaboration between Russian Railways and the oil and coal sectors? Is the development of sea port infrastructure in Russia matching that of the railway infrastructure? What innovative solutions are being proposed for transporting oil and energy cargos? During this roundtable we will address the above questions, discuss the operations of Russian Railways, and propose strategies for future cooperation between rail transport and the Russian fuel and energy sector.

Technological Cooperation and Import Substitution in the Energy Sector: An Effective Response to the Risks of Sanctions

Panel discussion

To effectively take the Russian fuel and energy sector forward and to utilize the potential raw material base, it is of vital importance to equip the country with its own strategically important technologies. Joint efforts in this area from the state and industry leaders have led to considerable progress being made. One successful area has been gas turbines, their production, monitoring, disgnostics and servicing. In the oil and gas industry, we have seen developments in technologies and equipment for extracting hard-to-recover oil, offshore operations, LNG production, and our ability to provide catalysts for oil refineries and petrochemical plants. International cooperation between scientists and technologists has also been growing rapidly, with foreign partners willing to cooperate on the Russian market and world arena. What have the policies for import substitution in the fuel and energy sector pursued jointly by the state and industry players achieved today? Is the current and projected future demand enough to drive the continued and effective development of import substituting technologies and equipment? Are additional state support measures required for the further development of manufacturing and servicing equipment in the Russian fuel and energy sector? What are the prospects for further reducing the dependence of the fuel and energy sector on imported technologies and equipment? Are potential foreign markets willing to acquire equipment manufactured in Russia, and who could assist Russian machine-builders in entering the international market?
