The paper examines the regional diversity of wind and solar energy development in the US. Five models of renewable energy development such as advanced solar energy on the south-west, advanced wind energy in the central region, moderate development of renewables on the north-west, accelerated development on the northeast and catch-up growth of renewables on the southeast are considered. This diversity is a result of multiple factors, including renewable resources, electricity market structure, state regulation and incentives, costs of technologies. The paper assumes the gradual transition from onshore wind energy to solar and distributed energy as well as offshore wind energy in some regions and the use of energy storage over the longer term.
The results of numerical experiments using the iterative methods are presented for the solution of ill-conditioned symmetric SLAE for a number of structural mechanics problems. The second order incomplete triangular factorization has been used to construct preconditionings. MPI and TBB technologies have been exploited to parallelize computations. Numerical experiments in different parallel regimes have been performed on the Lomonosov supercomputer.
The paper examines the key channels of technology transfer for modern Russian industrial enterprises. The possible results of Russia’s joining to WTO are taken into consideration. The focus of attention is at mergers and acquisitions as one of the most appropriate channels from the complexity of processes vision. The possible strategies of technology-motivated mergers and acquisitions are identified and approaches to valuation of technology-related component in mergers and acquisitions are developed.
Development of standards of international controllability is reviewed in the article. Institutional approach is applied to development of international legal regime of Energy Charter. Definition of controllability is connected to development of international standards of dispute settlement, which are described in the article in detail. In connection with controllability, Russian interest, defense of investment in European Union and ecological investment encouragement, is reviewed in the article.

In article the market of cars before crisis, features of its growth on a boundary of centuries is considered, manufacturers are investigated world production of vehicles on segments and the largest companies. Change of manufacture of cars for last 20 years is shown. Dynamics of structure of the market of cars in Russia in 2001-2008 is analyzed considered, how modern crisis will affect repartition of the world market of cars and the tendency of its development (in countries and price aspects). Authors do the short-term and long-term forecast of development of the Russian market of cars.
Basic relationships understood as the concept of semblance have been presented. Their classification and comparison are given.
The development of power supplies for ionizing radiation detectors is a complex and difficult problem, especially if this concerns with autonomous mobile measuring systems. In this article, we describe the experience of the implementation of the autonomous solar energy supply for semiconductor ionizing radiation detectors.
The paper describes the principles of economic efficiency of the ATP with a decision support system. The proposed approach allows the analysis and planning of the production program for the production of motor transport.
The article examines the current international and national principles, characteristics and basic obligatory requirements of technical regulations in the field of electromagnetic compatibility of technical equipment.
The paper analyzes the effectiveness of balancing the interests of power consumers and suppliers by the market mechanisms appeared after the power sector reform as well as their ability to from the rational investment behavior of the generating companies (GenCos). Special attention is paid to the heterogeneity of financial situation in power generation, where differences in profitability of GenCos create risks for their stable development and start of their assets modernization that was delayed for the last 15–20 years. The lack of competitive mechanisms for the proper investment signals and risks of existing regulatory mechanisms guaranteeing the return on investments are also discussed. The paper presents requirements for the integrated assessment of economic consequences of the market devel opment scenarios taking into account the growth of new competitive area in energy supply based on the distributed generation sources.
