The article discusses the aspects of increasing competitiveness of Russian companies in the energy sector. It is noted that due to the market conditions the traditional exclusive domestic electric power companies acquire the updated status of monopoly-competitive structures. The views of industry analysts and representatives of generating companies participating in the competitive process are considered. It is concluded that the increase in the competitiveness of industrial companies is a natural and positive process, which future prospects are determined by the benefits of innovative solutions in the framework of formed technical and technological platforms and their implementation in practice of the energy sector.
