The agreement provides for strategic interaction between the Ulyanovsk region and the power grid company on issues related to the development of the regional economy, including the creation of a favorable investment climate, as well as creating conditions for the innovative development of the power grid complex based on the modernization of electric grids using digitalization technologies. The document fixes relations between the Government of the region and the power grid company for the next 10 years. The signing of the agreement will contribute to the solution of the most important task set by the President of the Russian Federation - the construction of a digital economy.
The document outlines the main tasks and areas of cooperation that will create conditions for improving the quality and reliability of power supply to consumers in the Ulyanovsk region and advancing the development of the power grid infrastructure, which is a priority task for IDGC of Volga, PJSC (a part of the “Rosseti”, PJSC) in the region. For this, the concept of digital transformation is being implemented, providing for technical re-equipment and modernization of the economy as part of the investment program of the IDGC of Volga branch - Ulyanovsk distribution grids and the creation of conditions for the widespread use of innovative technologies in the construction and reconstruction of power facilities.
It bears reminding that it is planned to create a leading zone of the digital area of power grids on the basis of the Ulyanovsk power distribution zone in the framework of digitization of the power grid complex in the Ulyanovsk region. The introduction of automated control systems for the power grid complex will increase the observability of the grid, reduce the risk of technological failures and significantly reduce electric power losses.
The use of digital solutions will ensure the availability of power grids to new technological challenges and modern realities. In aggregate, all this will allow to increase the reliability and quality of transmitted electricity, as well as the availability of services provided to consumers.
