On March 25, 2024, at the International Forum «ATOMEXPO-2024», a round table will be held on the topic of the synergy of renewable and nuclear generation.

Invited to participate: Maxim Bystrov, Chairman of the Board of the Association “NP Market Council”; Andrey Maksimov, Director of the Electric Power Industry Development Department of the Russian Ministry of Energy; Hoang Nghiem, Director of the Department of the Ministry of Energy of Vietnam; Grigory Nazarov, General Director of the wind energy division of Rosatom; Dmitry Borovikov, vice president, deputy general director for strategy, production portfolio management and trading of Forward Energo PJSC, and others. The moderator will be Irina Gaida, Deputy Director of the Center for Energy Transition and ESG at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

Discussion participants will discuss new challenges for the construction of energy systems of the future, the optimal combination of various types of low-carbon generation, features of pricing clean energy sources, issues of energy security and technological independence within the framework of the energy transition, as well as the rapid development of renewable energy sources and an increase in their share in the energy balance of countries as part of solving global climate change problems. agendas.

The event will take place from 9:00 to 10:45 in hall No. 9 of the Main Media Center.

For reference:

Rosatom State Corporation is a diversified holding company engaged in the development of various areas of low-carbon energy. As a key provider of solutions for sustainable energy systems of the future, Rosatom has the resources and competencies to deliver turnkey energy solutions that meet the priorities of the global climate agenda.

The wind energy division of Rosatom consolidates the efforts of the State Corporation in advanced segments and technological platforms of the electric power industry. The division was founded in September 2017. It concentrates the management of all Rosatom competencies in the wind energy sector - from design and construction to power engineering and operation of wind power plants. To date, Rosatom has commissioned over 1 GW of wind power capacity. In total, by 2027, Rosatom will commission wind power plants with a total capacity of about 1.7 GW.

A sustainable clean generation structure is achieved through the synergy of low-carbon base generation such as nuclear or hydroelectric power with prefabricated green generation sources. The combination of different types of generation makes it possible to achieve the safety and reliability of energy systems.

«The ATOMEXPO International Forum» is one of the main congress and exhibition events of the global nuclear industry, organized with the support of the Rosatom State Corporation. The forum has been held annually since 2009. This is the largest business and exhibition platform where leaders of leading industry companies and leading experts discuss the challenges of developing nuclear technologies, strengthen partnerships and exchange best practices. The forum format includes an exhibition and an extensive business program, the main topics of which are traditionally the development of nuclear energy as an environmentally friendly source of energy; human capital management; creation of nuclear energy infrastructure; energy financing and investment; development of non-power nuclear technologies and many others. As part of the forum, cooperation agreements are traditionally signed between Russian companies and foreign partners.

Russia is actively developing cooperation with friendly states. The implementation of large joint energy projects continues. Rosatom and its divisions take an active part in this work.
