Dear colleagues!

I am glad to welcome you to the first International Conference "Regional Energy Policy of Asian Russia". 

This Conference is conceived as a forum for multilateral discussion. Participants will have the opportunity to present the recent results of their research, their ideas and prospective projects, to discuss possible joint research plans. The Conference is intended to bring together the members of scientific and academic community, and representatives of regional executive bodies involved in the development of energy sector and housing and communal services. 

Earlier, Russia had a historically established system of mutual information exchange and mechanisms for interaction between the government bodies, entities engaged in planning, sectoral and scientific research institutes, and academic community to develop and discuss the future areas for the regional energy development, to train personnel and raise their qualifications. With the beginning of reforms in the country, the system started changing and losing certain elements and connections. At present, research is often duplicated and inconsistent positions contradicting the interests of other regions are advocated. 

Main issues of the Conference are: price and tariff setting in the energy sector, energy saving and energy efficiency improvement, energy security of the regions, development of energy institutions, environmental problems in energy systems, conditions for fuel supply to consumers in remote territories, possibility of using renewable energy sources and local fuels. This goals and objectives will be discussed also in the format of the round table "Cooperation of scientific, design and educational institutions, and regional executive authorities in solvingthe energy development problems".

We are waiting for 46 people from Russia, China and Mongolia to take part in the Conference, including 13 young scientists. I am sure that the healing air of the pine forest, in which the Electra resort is located, and the powerful energy of the unique Lake Baikal will contribute to the fruitful work of the Conference.

Chairman of the Program Committee, 
Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences
