Skoltech startet Zusammenarbeit mit führenden russischen Energiekonzernen

Das Skolkovo Institut für Wissenschaft und Technologie (Skoltech) hat bilaterale Verträge mit vier führenden russischen Energiekonzernen geschlossen. Die Zusammenarbeit sieht gemeinsame Forschungsprojekte zur Konstruktion komplexer elektrischer Systeme, den gemeinsamen Aufbau eines Bildungsprogramms sowie die Co-Finanzierung eines Forschungszentrums im Skoltech vor.

The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) agrees to joint research after signing bilateral agreements with four leading Russian corporations: IDGC Holding, Energy Forecasting Agency, System Operator of the United Power System, and En+Group.

According to these agreements, Skoltech and its industrial partners will conduct joint research into modeling complex electrical systems and collaboratively design education programs. These companies will also co-finance a research center at Skoltech that specifically focuses on technologies to improve their competiveness.

“Our goal is to create an international research center — Center for Research, Education, and Innovation — which is centered around the electrical industry,” said Skoltech President Edward Crawley. “This is an unusual approach, usually scientists look at pieces of science instead of systems such as the electrical distribution system. We will combine this systems view with the development of individual technologies in such a way that these technologies will more rapidly impact and have influence on this system.”

Skoltech and En+Group will focus on developing smart grid systems and modeling complex social and technical electrical systems. They will also concentrate their efforts in cross-cutting fields to produce alternative and renewable sources of energy and new materials as well as creating technologies for generating electricity, superconductivity, and reducing energy losses for heating systems.

In joint research between IDGC Holding and Skoltech, the two will target designing technologies for automatically measuring energy use, managing and monitoring energy demand, and telecommunications. They will also strive to produce new methods for running diagnostics on equipment and new materials for electric power lines—promoting energy effectiveness and presenting more ecologically safe alternatives.

Skoltech and System Operator of the United Power System will jointly develop and implement methods for modeling, creating algorithms, and analyzing and managing electricity grids. The collaborative center will be tasked with adapting the world's leading algorithms and analytical models for Russia's specific context and electric power systems.

Skoltech and the Energy Forecasting Agency will address issues related to modeling complex social and technical energy systems.

Participating parties at the Signing Ceremony:

  • Skoltech President Edward Crawley
  • Igor Kozhukhovsky, General Director for the Energy Forecasting Agency
  • Andrey Murov, First Deputy Chairman for IDGC Holding
  • Fyodor Opadchy, Deputy Chairman for the System Operator of the United Power System
  • Artyom Volynets, General Director for the energy holding En+Group

The Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) is a private graduate research university in Skolkovo, Russia, a suburb of Moscow. Established in October 2011 in collaboration with MIT, Skoltech educates global leaders in innovation, advances scientific knowledge and fosters new technologies to address critical issues facing Russian and the world. Applying international research and educational models, the university integrates the best Russian scientific traditions with twenty-first century entrepreneurship and innovation.
