‘Arctic: Territory of Dialogue’ International Arctic Forum
“Much of Russia’s success is linked to the fuel and energy industry and attention paid to problems and achievements in the industry. Energy makes the national and international news each day: new technologies are actively being introduced, new partnerships are emerging, and companies are entering new markets. We expect that the Russian Energy Week forum will enable international and Russian participants to see the whole range of opinions and create new joint initiatives.”
“Russia as a leader of the world’s energy industry substantially contributes to the global energy agenda. I am glad that heads of states, energy authorities and companies as well as experts from numerous countries choose Moscow and REW as a platform for discussing issues of energy development. This year main topics will include ‘Sustainable development of the energy industry for an unpredictable world’ and a roadmap of Russian energy industry development until 2024, as well as opportunities for investors, equipment producers and energy consumers brought about by the launch of major energy projects.”
“New challenges give rise to advanced technologies, and they develop the oil industry, optimize and modernize each technological process. Crisis is the time to evolve.”
“The modern realities of the fuel and energy industry require close coordination and interaction among production companies, research centres, the authorities, the media, and the public. It is gratifying that Russia has and effectively utilizes such a large-scale international platform as Russian Energy Week. On behalf of Transneft, I would like to wish productive work to all the forum organizers and participants.”
“Rosatom can design, build, and produce equipment, commission, train personnel, provide maintenance and fuel, and operate a nuclear facility anywhere in the world. Our integrated approach has enabled us to become number one in the world in terms of the number of power units being built. It’s not just trade in raw materials. The knowledge and competence of Russian nuclear scientists in matters concerning high technologies is the focus of export demand. During Russian Energy Week, we not only want to present our best technologies, but discuss key challenges and global trends in the energy sector together with our partners and leading experts.”
"Demonstration of the prospects for the Russian fuel and energy complex will expose us to the latest technologies soon to be used in many sectors, including gas, oil, coal, the petrochemical sector and others. Of particular interest are solutions in the sphere of energy saving and energy efficiency. I am convinced that the Russian Energy Week will enable us not only to chart the paths for further development of the energy sector as a whole, but also to demonstrate our achievements. In addition, the Forum should be an effective venue for tapping the potential of international cooperation in the energy sphere."
“Global climate change and the transition to low-carbon energy will definitely impact our country. We need to start preparing for this right now. In 2016, Fortum launched a pilot project to build a wind farm in the Ulyanovsk Region with capacity of 35 MW, which will be commissioned in the near future. The professional community has shown great interest in the further development of renewable energy. We hope that discussing this topic during Russian Energy Week will enable us to find solutions that will produce practical results”.
“As a driver of global economic development, energy is now undergoing large-scale transformations. This includes the ‘digitalization’ of all branches of the fuel and energy industry, the development of renewable energy and energy storage technologies, and the expanded use of electric transport. All this impacts the development of energy-related sectors of the economy and is part of a global technological revolution. In this connection, forming our country’s ‘energy future’ is one of the key objectives of the Russian Ministry of Energy of Russia.”
"The energy industry, the creation of new types of high-tech, energy efficient equipment, and development of innovative energy saving technologies are all issues on the agenda of each player in the the global energy resource market. The Russian Energy Week Forum serves as a platform for them to work together in finding solutions for these issues, topics that are priorities for the development of the Russian and international fuel and energy industry. I wish all of the participants a productive discussion touching on all of the industry’s strategically crucial topics."
“Today, the whole world is following the transformation of the energy sector. In the same way that oil and gas at one time took over firewood and coal in the energy balance structure, renewable energy will displace hydrocarbon sources of energy in our times. Technology is rapidly developing in the area of energy storage, energy efficiency, and the industrial Internet. It is important for Russia to not be left out in the cold of technological competition. For its part, Energy Week could become an indicator of change in the domestic energy sector and enable participants to find the right place to apply their efforts regardless of the focus of their activities: be it power engineering, solar, or traditional generation.”
“In my view, the most important and relevant benefit of ‘Russian Energy Week’ is the opportunity for a constructive dialogue between all participants in the fuel and energy sector – equipment manufacturers, power engineers and the government –and thus the ability to achieve positive financial and economic indicators and develop the domestic energy industry.”
“I would like to welcome guests and participants at the Russian Energy Week 2018 Forum.
“The Forum has proved itself as an effective specialist platform where industry experts, representatives of the bodies of executive power, and non-governmental organizations have the opportunity to discuss the widest possible range of issues linked to energy efficiency and conservation in housing and utilities and in construction, to present successful cases of project execution, and to share views as part of a constructive dialogue. I wish the Forum participants success in their work!”
"REW is a meeting place for professionals. For us, as for the entire industry as a whole, the issue of improving the investment climate in Russia is extremely important. We are ready to continue attracting the latest technologies to the country and developing promising projects. In addition to ensuring the reliability of power supply and infrastructure development, the goal of modernizing power generating capacities looms large for the Russian energy sector. I am confident that the discussions during REW will enable us to identify the vectors for the further development of the country's electric power industry."
“The world is rapidly changing under the influence of new technologies as well as growth in urbanization and industrialization, and energy is now at the forefront of these changes. I am confident that Russian Energy Week will be a key platform for discussing the objectives facing the industry and advanced technologies and coming up with solutions to develop energy, not only on a Russian scale, but also around the world. I am pleased to welcome the participants in Russian Energy Week on behalf of Schneider Electric, a partner in the Forum’s organization!”
“Russian Energy Week quickly became a globally influential industry platform. It brings together authorities, businessmen and experts to discuss key challenges and tendencies in the energy sector around the world, and outline the possibilities for further industrial development. I’m confident the forum is going to bring tangible results through exchange of ideas and networking”.
“Energy is often a driver of the changes that take place in the economy. It consists of a whole range of problems, initiatives, and ideas that are not always possible to discuss on existing platforms. In this regard, holding a representative industry forum in Russia is a long overdue decision, which I am sure will generate interest among our Russian and foreign colleagues.”
“The ‘Russian Energy Week’ International Forum is an effective platform for a constructive dialogue between representatives of leading oil companies, industry experts, and various business communities. Meetings of this level are a good opportunity to learn about trends in the industry’s development and exchange advanced experience as well as scientific and technical achievements in the global oil industry.”
“Despite a difficult macroeconomic environment, Russia’s petrochemical industry has demonstrated steady growth by implementing major investment projects, improving production efficiency and expanding its product range. I am confident that the Russian Energy Week will help participants agree on further steps for realizing the potential for processing our nation’s hydrocarbon resources.”
“We are very pleased to welcome such an important event as Russian Energy Week that will become another platform to develop international cooperation in the energy sector. Open dialogue is very important, especially nowadays.. We really hope that in the future this event will become a yearly tradition and will keep on bringing international and Russian power companies as well as regulatory authorities together to discuss main challenges that power sector is facing and finding best solutions.”
“A strong, efficient and competitive energy industry is essential for our nation’s stable development and economic security and for it to command respect. I believe an important objective of the Russian Energy Week is to emphasize the best practices and strengths of the national energy industry and to design strategies for improving and developing them further.”
“A systemic approach and regular “reality checks” are particularly important for the energy industry. The Russian Energy Week helps government agencies, companies and experts develop optimal long-term solutions for the industry.”
“I believe that Russian Energy Week has become one of the leading specialist platforms that enables a constructive dialogue to take place between the top Russian and international energy companies. Today, the Forum already has a unique potential for the exchange of views, it strengthens the image of the Russian fuel and energy sector, and provides the stimulus for attracting new investments.”
“The Russian Energy Week International Forum is an important event for the fuel and energy complex. Its busy programme effectively spans the entire range of urgent matters facing the Russian and global oil industry and paves the way for offering comprehensive solutions through joint efforts. I wish all Forum participants and organizers effective work, a constructive dialogue and interesting meetings!”
