Mexico City, 13th August, 2017 — The newest World Energy Council’s Patron — ROSATOM — participated in one of the major events in the world’s energy sector, The World Energy Leaders’ Summit (WELS), which took place in Mexico City on September 12-13.
ROSATOM, represented by the President of its Latin American regional office Ivan Dybov, has made a valuable contribution to the discussion of the most important and multifaceted topic on the agenda — the reform of the Mexican energy sector during the Session called ‘Adventures in Sector Reform – Critical Success Factors’. Mr. Dybov was one of the Discussion Leaders alongside other prominent speakers from such organizations as the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany, the World Bank Group, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
Ivan Dybov shared Russian experience of reforming the energy sector and how it influenced the nuclear sector development in the country. “By virtue of the reform ROSATOM integrated more than 340 enterprises of the civil nuclear sector and combined the country's experience in nuclear science and industry, which by now counts for more than seven decades. Being a state corporation, ROSATOM is a business oriented company with business philosophy of management which constantly proves its leadership in the global nuclear sector. The company's 10-year portfolio of overseas orders is estimated at $133.4 billion with 8 nuclear power units being under implementation in Russia and 34 units in 12 countries. ROSATOM is the world’s only company of a complete nuclear power cycle and stays a major player of the global non-energy nuclear industry”.
The speaker also pointed out that today nuclear energy becomes an important part of the global energy mix as it plays significant role in combating climate change. “As an example, in Russia nuclear energy now accounts for 18,3% of the energy generation, and brings with it many advantages, for instance, green energy without CO2 emissions and sustainable development of the regions with nuclear presence”, stated Ivan Dybov.
The World Energy Leaders’ Summits (WELS) are high-level exclusive events organized by the World Energy Council for the global energy leaders’ community to facilitate on-going dialogue on critical issues affecting the energy sector.
