“The energy transition is becoming part of our reality. A fundamental shift is taking place, both in the structure of the Russian electric power industry and in our understanding of the global processes in play. The serious discussion that will take place at the All Renewable World Energy Congress & Expo will affect the future of Russia and the entire world. These issues are much closer to our lives than we might think. The transition to carbon-free energy is the most important task facing us in the coming decades, and we will notice dramatic changes in less than ten years. The Forum will bring together leading specialists, experts and representatives of major companies and governments to develop strategies, share experiences, present renewable energy projects and identify the best possible solutions,” said Special Representative of the President of the Russian Federation for Relations with International Organizations to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals Anatoly Chubais.
Chubais also highlighted the exhibition of cutting-edge technologies and low-carbon energy equipment taking place at the All Renewable World Energy Congress & Expo, where leading companies will present their most promising renewable energy developments and technological solutions.
Holding the event in Rostov Region will highlight the important role of regional policy in Russia’s federal subjects in implementing the country’s low-carbon development strategy. The Forum’s core objectives are to facilitate the discussion and development of key issues concerning legal and technical regulation, technological trends, approaches to popularizing low-carbon economic development and the role of renewable and hydrogen energy in low-carbon development.
The ‘Experience Natural Energy’ festival will take place on the left bank of the Don on 21 May 2022 under the auspices of the Forum. Residents and visitors to Rostov-on-Don are welcome to join representatives of the professional renewable energy community in attendance at the Festival.
