Dmitry Titov, a Research Scientists with the Center for Energy Systems, took part in the first session of the Club “Innovations in Electrical Energy Industry.” It gathered together representatives of the Ministry for Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Energy, the Russian Academy of Science, the Council of Power producers, EuroSibEnergo, Cisco, Rossetti, and Rusal.
Chaired by EuroSibEnergo in cooperation with the Ministry of Energy of the Russian Federation, the Club aims to brainstorm on innovations with power generating and grid companies, academia, developers, and state officials. This time, participants talked about prospects of the electrical energy industry over the coming years and what projects and solutions it needs at present.
The meeting was opened by the Head of the Department for Operational Control and Management in the Electric Power Industry of the Ministry of Energy Evgeny Grabchak. He noted: “It isabsolutely necessary to support innovations that optimize current technological activities and allow companies to reduce the operational costs and therefore increase their competitiveness.”
The event presented an excellent opportunity to discuss projects of our Center with industrial partners as well as to get feedback on its implementation. We hope that the Club will act as a successful convening platform that will unite academia, companies and government institutions in their effort to modernize the electrical energy industry in Russia.
The next session of the Club is scheduled on December 25. Dmitry Titov is going to present our Center’s developments at this event.
