Government and InEnergy signed an agreement to develop high-tech “Energy Storage Systems” focus area

The Russian Government has hosted a ceremony during which agreements on cooperation between businesses and the state were executed based on the “road maps” focusing on high-tech vectors of activities. Agreements of intent have been executed between the Russian Government and interested organizations to implement those “road maps”. In particular, an agreement aimed to implement the “Energy Storage Systems” road map was signed by Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak and Alexey Kashin, the founder and managing director of InEnergy. The event has been posted on the website of the Russian Government.

According to the website of the Government, this work is under way by order of the Russian President following the meeting of the Council for National Projects and Strategic Development held in July 2022. This work is generally coordinated by First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov.

The implementation of the “Energy Storage Systems” road map will enable the development of necessary production technologies for energy storage systems based on state-of-the-art scientific developments.

“Russia has a huge capacity to implement hydrogen energy development projects and create mobile, powerful and cutting-edge storage systems. Such projects are being implemented by Gazprom, Rosatom, InEnergy,” Alexander Novak said, commenting on the execution of the agreement.

“Thanks to NTI’s systemic support and close cooperation with our partners, which include Gazprombank, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Skoltech, State Research Center of the Russian Federation (NAMI), Moscow Government, Moscow State University, Unikhimtekh and Federal Research Center of Problems of Chemical Physics and Medicinal Chemistry RAS, a technological consortium of developers and manufacturers of electric transport components has been established. To consolidate industry science and provide scientific and technological support for the emerging industry, MIPT established the Institute of Electric Propulsion in late 2022 based on which NTI’s “Mobile Energy Storage Systems” Competence Center was launched. Government support and strong partners allow us to feel confident in implementing the executed agreement whose main task is to create a new high-tech electrochemical energy sources industry in the country,” Alexey Kashin, the founder of InEnergy, said, commenting on the execution of the document.
