Project by the NTI Competence Centre based on NRU MEI Wins the Prize in the Potential Innovations Nomination of the QUALITY INNOVATION AWARD International Competition


The NTI Competence Centre project, based on NRU MPEI for the development of a distributed intellectual energy system, received the Potential Innovation Quality Innovation Award on February 5, 2020, at the LAGO Event Centre in Rishchon Lezion in Israel.

The Distributed Intelligent Micro Energy System Development Project is a solution designed for end-users in developing regions with electricity shortages.

Based on the combination of various AI methods, intelligent power storage and consumption management device will be developed by the NTI MEI Competence Centre that will allow the construction of a decentralised power supply network that functions stably under various stochastic changes in operating modes.

The development will reduce the cost of users to pay for services for the development and operation of electric networks, as well as exclude the payment of related additional network management services. Besides, the solution will pave the way for the smooth introduction of renewable energy sources and the elimination of the use of combustible fuel.

The development of an intelligent device for the accumulation and management of electricity consumption is proposed as a contribution of the Competence Centre based on NRU MPEI and partners to the tasks identified in the project of the World Bank and CIGRE to accelerate investment in the creation of batteries for energy systems in developing countries and countries with medium income level.

The Quality Innovation Award is an annual international innovation competition held since 2007 by the Finnish Quality Association in association with national quality organizations in several countries. It involves scientists, research teams of universities, as well as representatives of scientific departments of large companies. Nominations are designed for projects in various fields — from medicine and ecology to business and education. Currently, organizations from Hungary, Israel, Spain, Kazakhstan, China, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Russia, the Czech Republic, Sweden, and Estonia are participating in it.


The NTI Competence Centres are units created based on educational or scientific organizations. The centres conduct research and educational activities in consortium with leading technology companies in the interest of developing “end-to-end technologies”. Among these technologies, there are big data, artificial intelligence, quantum technologies, new and portable energy sources, wireless communication technologies, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and others. A total of 14 such centres have been created. Until 2021, state funding of the Centres in the amount of 10.3 billion roubles is provided. The operator of the NTI Competence Centre project is RVC.
