The New Energy Agenda and Russia’s Global Leadership

24 May, 16:45–18:00
Harnessing Russia’s Growth Potential
Panel Session
Pavilion F, Conference Hall F3

The tightening competitive landscape for capital, technology, and market access in the global energy sector demands that energy companies undertake additional efforts to remain competitive and attractive to international investors. Developing and introducing new technologies is not about following a trend; it is a fundamental requirement. Competition between different forms of fuel, power engineering, distributed generation, the EOR method, and digitalization are complex processes that will determine the energy agenda of the future. The key challenge facing Russia in the energy sector is creating the right conditions to implement the full technological cycle, from the development of technology to its implementation and commercialization. How can Russia take the leading position in a race in which non-economic competition plays an increasingly important role? How can Russia retain its technological independence and ensure accelerated development?
