Eco-system on a hybrid
Yuri Sibirsky Head of Renewable Energy Sector, Energy Efficient Technologies Cluster, Nonprofit Organization Development Fund for the Center for Development and Commercialization of New Technologies (Skolkovo Foundation)
- The Skolkovo Foundation supports innovative projects at an early stage of development. The subject of renewable energy is one of the main and priority in the Cluster of energy efficient technologies (EE), one of the five Clusters of the Fund.
In our opinion, the most promising innovative projects in the field of renewable energy are solar energy projects aimed at improving the characteristics of photoelectric converters (FEP), reducing the cost of FEP; Projects in the field of wind power and projects for the development of storage devices and capacitors. In this direction there is a strong domestic scientific school. Attention should be paid to projects on hydrogen energy, which, probably, are earlier, but have huge prospects for development. There are projects related to thermoelectrics and the use of low-potential heat, as well as other developments in the field of distributed energy.
Projects in the field of renewable energy can be used both in non-isolated energy systems and in isolated systems, where the cost of electricity from renewable energy is already competitive compared to very expensive diesel generation. Solving the problem of reducing the cost of energy in isolated systems in the DFO (in particular in Yakutia) is an important state task, and the Skolkovo Foundation is ready to support innovative projects aimed at its solution.
The hybrid system is one of the topics where we see a huge potential for attracting new participants to the Skolkovo ecosystem. Unfortunately, there are not very many such projects in the Fund yet, but we are actively working so that their number will increase significantly by the end of the year. I hope that hybrid plants - diesel-solar, diesel-wind, or battery-based hybrid - will be equipped with domestic “brains” and will make a significant contribution to improving the energy supply of consumers in isolated power systems in the Far East, especially in Yakutia. In Russia, there are companies that do this, there is potential, including scientific and technical.
And there is investment in this sector. A number of companies, venture funds and business angels are ready to invest in this kind of development. The Skolkovo Foundation, for its part, is ready to support similar projects, like other innovative projects in the field of renewable energy.
