Track: 7. Industry. Resources. Environment
The Discussion Session is organized by Inter RAO
Energy industry is one of the most relevant and significant industries within an economic structure. It predetermines the development of independent states and larger regions. Fuel and energy complexes have their impact on national wealth, inflows to national budgets, and play an important role in supporting geopolitical interests of key market players in some regions.
At the panel discussion, we are planning to touch upon some issues related to competition development in fuel-and-energy area and to evaluate the feasibility of non-market instruments application.
It will be both interesting and important to review some statutory regulation issues, energy legislation prospects and trends and relevant issues of enforcement and judicial experience, with a special focus on power sales licenses, “alternative boiler station”, reference sales, etc.
It is notable that issues and guarantees related to judicial protection and sustainability of law systems in the countries of investees location are the priorities for both Russian and foreign investors in view of property choice for investments. Therefore, the panel participants are planning to touch upon the cases of investment disputes related to implementation of relevant fuel-and-energy projects, and foreign experience in regulation of investments in power industry.
It is also notable that both power and heating industries bear the legacy of material problems and challenges, i.e. wear of plant, property and equipment and lack of incentives for their decommissioning or overhaul; dramatic growth of the share of generating equipment, including ineffective units, working in a “forced” mode; need in effective combination of central power and heat supply systems, distributed generation and intellectual energy systems.
Development of both competition and government regulation (including anti-trust) of tariffs in power supply and central heating supply should play an important role in resolution of the issues the industry is currently facing.
The importance of the abovementioned issues and the fact that many aspects of fuel-and-energy area statutory regulation are not elaborated and rather doubtful, provided for the choice of subjects and the purpose of the panel discussion.
The event will be interesting both to public and private investors, Russian and foreign energy companies and enterprises, government authorities representatives and experts community.
