Mission Possible: Scientific Response to Universal Energy Challenges

Humanity is on the cusp of a new technological cycle. The scope of changes and the complexity of solutions to be introduced within the new industrial revolution differ from those of previous global transformations. In the light of the new reality, demand for electricity will continue to grow given that, according to the UN data, one in five people have no access to this energy carrier. Over one billion people, most of whom live in rural areas, suffer from energy poverty. The global community is witnessing the trends of the 4th Industrial Revolution while suffering the consequences of the third one. Modern states are bound to seek solutions to universal energy challenges and shape their energy policies while keeping in mind the rapidly changing technologies and environmental issues. As part of the panel session, the speakers will identify the capacity of scientific and technological potential to modernize and digitalize universal energy systems and evaluate the role of researchers in solving global energy issues. How can science assist in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals in energy? What are the necessary stages of a full-scale digital transformation of the fuel and energy sector? Can advanced technologies for extracting, processing, and storing energy resources be developed during a transition to a new philosophy of energy consumption? How is it possible to increase the efficiency of traditional energy systems and ensure greater security in the energy supply? And finally, what are the chances that disruptive technologies for boosting the transition to clean energy will appear?

The Evolution of Energy Systems: A Global Perspective

In partnership with CIGRE

The speed of managerial and technological transformation today is key to the effectiveness of major companies and entire industries. It consists of two components: the ability to anticipate changes in the environment, and the time that companies spend on implementing innovative products. Several trends are impacting the development of the modern electric power industry, some of which, at first glance, contradict each other. How does the development of renewable energy and the emergence of prosumers correlate with continuing demand for a reliable electricity supply? What about the growth of new energy-intensive sectors of the economy (primarily associated with the storage and processing of large amounts of data) and energy saving? Digitalization and cybersecurity? Decentralization of energy systems and the creation of international energy corridors and associations? These phenomena have reached different levels of penetration in different countries, with positive and negative consequences. Obviously, they affect not only technological solutions, but also industry management models, relations with consumers, market mechanisms and regulation, etc. How stable are these trends and which of them will have the biggest impact on the development path of the industry in the long term?

Modernization of Thermal Power Generation in Russia: Successful Implementation and Improvements

In 2019, the first tenders were held to modernize heat-generating equipment with delivery dates from 2022 to 2025. 14 GW of equipment will be upgraded, requiring investments of about RUB 200 billion. In the first tenders, competition was fierce and there was a sizeable reduction in capital costs and single-rate prices, which attests to the success of the chosen tender mechanism. At the same time, the tenders showed that changes should be made to competitive procedures or amendments should be introduced to related Russian government resolutions. Are combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) projects absent in the list of selected applications due to an inability to compete with foreign makers or due to the lack of domestic gas turbines? Is the power engineering sector ready to guarantee the supply of localized gas turbines to generators? Are localization requirements redundant? Should the tender be divided into thermal power plants, regional power stations, and CCGTs? Is a price floor necessary? Is it advisable to increase the Government Commission quota?

Global Energy Challenges: Focus on Talent

In partnership with the ROSATOM State Atomic Energy Corporation

The technological shifts taking place around the world entail fundamental changes in the global labour market. The approaches to labour management being adopted and the nature of organizational models within companies are evolving. Globally, HR management is focused on training, attracting, and retaining highly effective experts. Today, talent is the key competitive advantage in the high-tech, diversified and creative economy of the future. International analysts state that by 2030 the talent deficit will increase by 11% globally, and left unchecked, this could result in USD 2.1 trillion of unrealized global income. As a result, the global demand for talent is set to intensify, with the values of lifelong education and personal growth already included in several national strategic priorities, including in Russia. 2019 saw the inception of the Global Talent Index in the Energy Sector , which shows that the energy sectors are suffering from a 57.6% talent crunch. Given the key role of the energy system in the Russian economy, it is vital to focus on effective tools that can help to attract the best talent, provide them with incentives, and develop their skills. How effective are the current approaches to HR development and are there any niches for new initiatives at both national and international levels? Are there any successful national advanced training programmes? Who is the key player in respect of career changes: the state, employers, or the employees themselves? What needs to be considered when working with talent in the energy sector? What conditions must be created in order to develop and retain talent? What is preventing the transition from mass education to individual educational tracks?

Topical Issues Related to Advancing Energy and Resource Efficiency in the Eurasian Economic Union

The UN General Assembly identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 related targets that countries must achieve by 2030. SDGs are a key part of a large system of targets and indicators, primarily for developing countries, aimed at eliminating poverty, preserving the planet’s resources, and ensuring prosperity for all. Responsible Consumption and Production and Climate Action (SDGs 12 and 13) propose doing more and better with fewer resources, through the use of rational consumption and production models and the efficient use of natural and energy resources, with a minimal impact on the climate. This is the basic principle of the circular economy and defines the current model of Green Economy. Being the most efficient way to preserve energy, resources, and materials, the Green Economy is a key factor in changing economic growth methods. Many countries, including China, USA, Korea, and the EU implement its principles in their state policies. EEU states have also defined the Green Economy as their strategic priority and unravel it with their national specifics taken into account. What priorities do countries have with respect to energy and resource efficiency? Which countries have made progress towards transitioning to a green economy? How did they do this? What are the existing and potential roles of Eurasian integration? Is it possible to align unified national priorities and the speed with which they are achieved with a circular economy? Will green economic development issues become an effective instrument for further integration between countries in the region?

Big Energy Data: Why Do We Need the State Information System for the Fuel and Energy Sector (GIS TEK)?

The global and, by extension, Russian energy systems are currently undergoing a period of global digital transformation. Each year, the industry sees the launch of new and improved facilities and complexes for the extraction, processing, generation, and transmission of energy in its various forms. Meanwhile, ‘digital duplicates’ of these systems are being made in the interest of increasing efficiency – data is being collected at every turn in order to create, in the long run, a federal information system for the fuel and energy industry that helps us to better understand how the sector should develop in the future. The pilot version of the Russian Federal State Information System for the Fuel and Energy Sector (GIS TEK), which is tasked with collecting and analyzing data, was launched in May this year and is expected to enter into full operation in early 2020. Over 50 major Russian energy companies and 600 legal entities are currently involved in this process. Those numbers will continue to grow. Infrastructure industries, regions, equipment manufacturers, and the financial sector must coordinate their efforts in order to successfully take on a task of this scale. What role do regional authorities play in the creation of a unified state information space for Russia's fuel and energy industry? What unified approaches and automated processes need to be launched so that the GIS TEK is capable of efficiently and effectively collecting data and analyzing massive amounts of information? What is the current state of industry processes for the preparation and monitoring of fuel and energy industry companies’ investment projects and programmes, and what issues do they currently face? Who will be required to submit data to the GIS TEK? How should this data be prepared and secured? How will information globalization improve big data analytics and affect energy systems optimization?

The Evolution of Energy Law: Formation, Development… Guillotine?

The formation of energy law at an institutional level in modern-day Russia took place over several stages: the delineation of powers between various levels of governance by the Constitution of the Russian Federation and the implementation of acts of the USSR and RSFSR; the adoption of federal and regional-level laws and bylaws and municipal regulations governing relations in the fuel and energy sector; the enforcement and identification of problems and gaps, the drawing up of key issues as part of legal and anticorruption appraisals; the development of energy law as an academic-adjacent discipline; and the examples of successful training programmes implemented at leading Russian universities. Policymaking as a whole, including in the fuel and energy sector, has come a long way in Russia over the last 25 years, but is now facing new challenges and undergoing a transformation. The agenda includes conceptual legislative changes: reforming regulatory and oversight activities, working on a new Code of Administrative Offences, and implementing the ‘regulatory guillotine’. How will energy law be impacted by these changes? What are the possible routes towards transformation, and what forms will it take? What aspects of regulation should be left untouched, and where is it completely out of date?

Energy in the Digital Economy: New Technologies and Growth Factors

In the face of today’s global structural upheavals and technological transformations, digitalization is a driver of accelerated development in the national economy and a factor in increasing its competitiveness on the global stage. The introduction of digital technologies is already changing existing processes in every sector of the economy, leading to increased efficiency and reduced costs. The fuel and energy sector is no exception. The advent of cutting-edge data technologies, machine learning and the Internet of Things is changing the face of the modern energy industry, transforming it into a provider of the ‘energy of the future’. At the same time, economic transition towards a new phase of digital development is placing fundamentally new demands on the energy sector in terms of providing a reliable and accessible energy supply to consumers at a qualitatively new level. Meeting these demands is a top priority when it comes to digitalization in the energy sector. The Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation is currently working on a solution as part of its Digital Energy departmental project, which has brought leading industry players together to pool their efforts and capitalize on the multiplier effects of digitalization. What role does the digital transformation of the fuel and energy sector have to play in the transition to a digital economy? How is the state leading the way in terms of digitalizing energy? What is needed for a comprehensive digital transformation of the entire fuel and energy sector? What steps have already been taken? What are the plans for the immediate future?
