All Renewable World Energy Congress & Expo

The All Renewable World Energy Congress & Expo (ARWE) is a major B2B platform concerning renewable energy sources (RES), which was established for interaction and to promote the development of the renewable energy industry in Russia.

The main goal of the ARWE  is to promote the development of the RES market in Russia by bringing together renewable energy players and showcasing technological development. As a major event on the global climate agenda, the Forum offers new opportunities to discuss topical issues, including legal regulation and technological trends, promote the development of the renewable energy industry in Russia, and foster a more careful and ‘economical’ attitude towards nature among the public.

Services for members

Within the framework of the business program, sessions will be organized to discuss the practices of renewable energy development in Russia and the world, mechanisms of state support for the industry, international projects, the latest scientific developments, as well as presentations of various scientific and educational centers.

The Forum will be attended by heads of energy departments of foreign countries, heads of major international and Russian energy companies, the leadership of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, leading international experts and organizations


Discussion of key topics in the development of renewable energy in Russia and the world

Thematic sections of the exhibition:
  • Solar energy

Feel the Energy of Nature Festival
The event will take place on May 22, 2022 in a scenic location on the left bank of the Don River. The festival will be held in the format of a big family holiday.
The venue will accommodate an exhibition where participants will be able to see state-of-the-art renewable energy equipment, e.g. solar panels, solar collectors, geothermal heating systems, energy-efficient technology for domestic use and wind turbines. The exhibition will also feature presentation of the developments created by young scientists.
Festival guests will be able to test drive an electric car and to visit the games, leisure and picnic areas.
Photo zones, a food court and a concert featuring local artists, as well as themed kite-making workshops will also delight spectators and participants.
An exciting highlight of the event will be the Colorful Sky Show from the oldest Russian kite festival. Kite flying is an integral part of the program. Visitors can bring their own models or buy them in the venue.


Festival in the format of a family holiday "Feel the energy of nature"

We ought to thoughtfully and fully seize the opportunities opened up by current and future changes in the global economy, particularly projects that directly benefit the economy while ensuring a noticeable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation

We need to prepare for a gradual reduction in the use of traditional fuels: oil, gas and coal. To increase energy efficiency. To develop alternative energy. To build appropriate infrastructure. The world economy is aiming at a progressive transition to low-carbon energy, and this is already the new reality.

Mikhail Mishustin, Prime Minister of the Government of the Russian Federation

We all live in the same planet and must bear collective responsibility for its future, while ensuring sufficient conditions for energy development. The Russian Federation, as one of the major energy powers, is aware of its particular responsibility for solving global environmental issues and, above all, the most urgent one of these – containment of climate change.

Aleksandr Novak, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation

Russia has already had not just a renewable energy industry, but a comprehensive cluster that includes generation, industry, science and education. Most importantly, Russia’s renewable energy technology cluster needs to be brought to the global market. If Russia’s renewable energy wins its place worldwide, it will mean irreversibility of the process: we will not lose our positions either in 10 or 20–30 years.

Anatoly Chubais, Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for Relations with International Organizations for Achieving Sustainable Development Goals, Co-Chairman of the Renewable Energy Development Association

A crucial task is to restore the biosphere, and the key to achieving this goal is to introduce nature-like technology that is capable of moving the process forward without causing harm to the surrounding environment. In fact, this is the main strategic challenge facing the international community.

Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation

The pandemic has aggravated the debates about the need for the most rapid energy transition – replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy sources. Falling demand for oil and gas in 2020 generated many predictions about when the hydrocarbon era will end. Yes, we are seeing in real time that the “greening” of the economy is shifting. But will it destroy hydrocarbons, and can green energy get a win over oil and gas? There are more economic aspects here, and we are still just exploring the topic.

Aleksandr Kozlov, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation

Flying of quadcopters [on alternative fuels – Ed.] is already being done abroad. Alternative fuels, such as hydrogen fuel instead of paraffin oil, are being used for the aviation industry. According to some forecasts, planes will be actually able to fly on hydrogen fuel by 2035.

Vitaly Savelyev, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation

Today, green energy issues are an obligatory part of forum agendas and dialogue between countries all over the world. This concerns all people on the planet because the Earth is our shared home and humanity has no other home yet. The President has repeatedly stressed the need for Russia to transition to carbon-free energy by 2060. It may seem like there is a lot of time, but, in fact, we need to act now. We are glad that the ARWE International Forum will be held in Rostov-on-Don. Our region is doing a lot to develop green energy. And today the Don region is the leader among Russia’s regions in terms of installed wind power generation capacity. I am certain that the event will be held at the highest level.

Vasily Golubev, Governor of the Rostov Region

Today, the climate agenda is not information noise, but something that
is capable of exerting a serious impact and changing business models pursued by major companies and hydrocarbon-producing countries. We are in a situation where actual figures and rates at which global investment is going green are exceeding all the predictions that were voiced. Reviewing strategic programs and focusing investment and incentives on green power will enable Russia to become a prominent player in the global new energy market.

Aleksey Zhikharev
Director of the Renewable Energy Development Association, partner of VYGON Consulting

Active development of RES sectors ensures the investments inflow, which in turn results in new technological competencies in the country. Further market development will be enabled by holding B2B venues, such as the Supplier Forum.

Vasily Osmakov
Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation

The RES industry in Russia today is not about future projects; it’s about those that have already been implemented and carry lots of potential. We see the wind energy sector development leading to investments into related industries, such as composite materials, metallurgy, and others. It is important that RES does not include production only, it also means education, the future of our children.

Kimal Yusupov
Director General of Vestas RUS LLC

Ulyanovsk Region has been selected as the hosting region of the event for a reason. Ulyanovsk Region has been the leader in the sphere of developing renewable energy sources. And I do not mean just the new capacities that are launched every year. The ceremonial opening of the second stage of the Ulyanovsk WPS with the capacity of 50 MW has been dedicated to the opening of the Forum. In the next several years another six wind energy parks with the total capacity of more than 200 MW will be added.
