THE GLOBAL ENERGY ASSOCIATION EXPERTS ASSESSED THE YOUNG SCIENTIST`S PROJECT ON OPTIMIZATION OF POWER SYSTEMS AS THE BEST

The winners of the Global Energy Youth Talks, which was held within the framework of the VIII Global Energy Prize Summit in Germany, became known. According to the experts’ assessment, the winner became Alexander Murray with a project of optimization algorithms in solving engineering problems in power systems. He received a special invitation to the 2019 Global Energy Prize Ceremony. The second winner, who received the audience award, became Holger Roehm with the development of special sunglasses.

The winner of the Global Energy Youth Talks Alexander Murray is confident that specialized methods in the form of optimization algorithms will help to solve many engineering problems in energy systems. In his work “Decomposition and Parallelization of Mixed‐Integer Optimization in Energy Systems” he spoke about the application of the algorithm, which shows promising results in obtaining fast solutions with objectively better performance than competing methods.

The second winner, who received the audience award, was Holger Roehm with the development of innovative sunglasses. They are indistinguishable from ordinary sunglasses with tinted glasses. However, they are able to power the built-in microcontrollers and two liquid crystal displays, which show data such as air temperature and light intensity.

The program also included the presentations made by Felix Strehle and Joris Dehler-Holland. Strehle spoke about the passivity of voltage, based on the technology “Plug-and-Play”, and frequency regulation in inverter AC systems. Dehler-Holland – about the struggle for the legitimacy of the German law on renewable energy.

Notably that for the first time in the history of the Global Energy Prize Summit the Association held the Global Energy Youth Talks Program for students of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Recall that since 2019, the Global Energy Youth Program has become international. Now young power engineers from all over the world can take part in the competition for the best research project and implemented idea. The winners will receive grants to continue their research and personal awards. The total prize fund of the Global Energy Youth Program is around 56 000 Euros.

China and India continue to increase coal production

China will retain its leadership in the coming years in production of steam coal used as a raw material for power plants. According to the Global Energy Monitor, by July 2022, China’s steam coal mining projects at the pre-investment stage had a capacity of 368 million tons of coal per year, with a further 19 million tons coming from the projects where mining of steam and coking coal will be shared.

Malaysia approves world’s largest offshore CCUS project

Company Petronas has made a final investment decision on the CO2 capture, storage and utilisation (CCUS) project in the Kasawari gas field, 200 km off the coast of the Bintulu region, northern Malaysia. The project capacity is up to 3.3 million tons of CO2 equivalent per year, which makes it the largest CCUS initiative undertaken in the offshore oil and gas production.
