Net-Centric System of Elevated Stability (Survivability) of Energy Management in Russia Under Difficult-to-predict Critical Conditions


Energy sector, like the defence complex, is one of the key industries that serve as a basis for the life support processes of the country and the resulting stability of the state political structure. World practice has clearly demonstrated the key dependence of domestic political and social stability on reliability and sustainability of energy supply. Multifactorial survivability of the energy supersystem under normal and critical conditions of natural and anthropogenic origin can be provided through forming a net-centric system of elevated management stability, based on a distributed network of inter-corporate disaster-resistant data centers for processing and storing extremely large data sets. It is proposed to use data centers as bases for digital “twins” of energy facilities and processes in order to finally achieve a new quality of control based on digital topology within a single digital model of the energy supersystem with the possibility of secure collection, storage, processing and exchange of data, necessary for managing power facilities of various sectoral subsystems of the Russian fuel and energy complex, as well as for regional and municipal authorities. Application of digital topology makes it possible, during local interactions, to search for and implement solutions for moving towards local, network and polycentric resource-operational optima in order to minimize costs (price burden on the consumer) of separate companies and the entire industry with the aim of maintaining reliability and sustainability of energy supply, including security costs of the critical information infrastructure systems

Package Sectoral Order as an Effective Tool for Managing Import Substitution, Development of New Technologies and Energy Modernization

DOI: 10.33917/es-3.169.2020.6-17

Import substitution in the energy sector requires development in Russia of a group of new industries and modernization of existing capacities. That calls for integrating the structures of fundamental and applied science, education, power engineering production, energy generation and electricity transport in the framework of a complete innovation cycle. The key to the problem solution is forming an integrated mechanism for planning and management of scientific-research, power engineering and electric power segments as parts of a single technological chain of work and procurement from basic research to equipment disposal. The R&D result should be a package sectoral order for equipment and technologies — a new planning and coordination tool in the market environment of Russian energy and power engineering. It is proposed to build a new information control loop in the energy sector of Russia to form the basis of a package order within the industry in order to establish medium- and long-term scientific and technical planning for replacing retiring equipment, tracking contracts and monitoring results of their implementation

Life Cycle of the Military-Industrial Complex Organizations: the Shift from Fiscal to Motivational Economy

DOI: 10.33917/es-7.165.2019.6-25

The article deals with the issues of improving state regulation of the military-industrial complex (MIC) economy concerning an expanding fiscal economy. Case studies demonstrate the impact of existing approaches to state regulation of financial and economic activities on the efficiency of the enterprise life cycle. Attention is drawn to evaluation and effect analysis of such demotivating factors of current approach as “lagging planning”, “deliberate” penalties, an increase in the tax burden, a statutory fixed deficit of working capital, an increase in the loan debt burden. These factors lead to the profit reduction in the real economy and diminish the strength of MIC organizations to make an economic breakthrough. It is concluded that the fiscal economy is the result of inconsistency of rules and norms. In addition, there is the lack of science-based technical and economic models for MIC management considering the interests of all the stakeholders. In order to solve this issue, it is proposed to develop a consolidated state document as general binding rules for the numerous authorities involved in state regulation of MIC financial and economic activities. This set of rules and regulations should also ensure a consistent approach to definitions and algorithms. It is also recommended to organize a permanent platform for productive dialogue between authorities and MIC representatives on the issue of the MIC economic policy

On November 18, 2014 in the “Davos” hall of the “Red Hills” hotel the Intensive Special Course for staff reserve of defense enterprises’ managers entitled “Strategic management” was inaugurated. Organizers and developers of the special course are: Collegium of the Military-Industrial Commission under the Government of the Russian Federation, the “Analytics” Association, the RAS Institute for Economic Strategies. At the opening ceremony the Deputy Chairman of the Collegium of the RF Military-Industrial Commission Oleg Bochkarev addressed the audience, representatives of major defense enterprises. The main topics of conversation were the issues of defense industry development, the state defense order and HR policy in the industry.
