Understand the drivers behind Russia’s power sector overhaul


According to Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, the current Russian energy market model does not (fully) allow the attraction of private investment into electricity generation and grids. This is exactly the reason why the Russian government is looking to overhaul the whole system.

The past year has been characterised by the government’s renewed efforts to devise the policy that will lead to opening up of the sector to private investments, grid modernisation and greatly improved energy efficiency.

So what market model does Russia need to attract investments and spur developments in the sector? What new business opportunities will open up with infrastructure upgrades and commercialisation of utilities?

These key issues will be debated at Smart Utilities Russia (29-30 January, Moscow, Russia) by a panel of top Russian influencers, including:

  • Reiner Hartmann, Member of the Board of Directors, E.ON
  • VasilyZubakin, Deputy Head of Energy, Lukoil
  • Sergey Pikin, Director, Energy Development Fund
  • Dominique Fache, Country Manager, OGK-5, Enel
  • Larisa Levina, Deputy General Director, NP “INVEL”

Sound top level strategy leads to proliferation of projects on the ground and an array of experts, both from Russia and abroad, will discuss current projects such as:

  • Energy efficiency plans
  • European trends in smart grid and their applicability to the Russian setting
  • Digitized grid and cyber security
  • Potential for demand response as the energy savings and network balancing tool
