The shortlist of the nominees will be announced by Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association, who will be moderating the strategic session.
“The Global Energy Association is going not only to moderate that landmark session, but also to enrich the agenda,” said Sergey Brilev. “The prize has seen its best nomination cycle in twenty years, with scientists from 43 countries, or 115 nominees all in all, represented in the longlist. The most important stage, technical evaluation, has just been completed. On its basis, the shortlist will be announced, and from this shortlist, the independent Global Energy Prize International Award Committee will pick this year’s laureates,” added Mr. Brilev.
The Global Energy Prize was established in 2002. In the past two decades, 45 scientists from 15 countries have become recipients of this award. The prize nomination cycle consists of several stages. The applications submitted within 110 days from the start of the nomination procedure are evaluated by experts according to a fixed set of criteria, including scientific novelty and practical value. Fifteen best applications, five in each category (“Conventional Energy,” “Non-Conventional Energy,” “New Ways of Energy Application”), are shortlisted, and the International Committee selects the winners from amongst shortlist nominees.
The next meeting of the International Committee and the ceremony of official announcement of the laureates are scheduled to take place in July in Khanty-Mansiysk, and the formal Award Ceremony will be held in October 2022 in Moscow.
