Global Energy and St. Petersburg Polytechnic University publish joint scientific journal
Глобальная энергия и Санкт-Петербургский Политех выпустили совместный научный журнал
From January 2023 onward, the Global Energy Association is joining forces with Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) to publish a scientific journal named Global Energy. The publication is going to cover a wide range of subjects in the field of engineering sciences and feature the most recent research findings, including those obtained as a result of international cooperation.

“This might be the first case in the history of scientific journals when a joint publication is launched by a powerful international association together with one of the largest engineering universities which has since its inception been focused on the energy sector. I would like this journal to include not only articles about technologies in the key sectors of the energy industry but also news on the Global Energy Association, as well as information on solutions developed by the laureates of and nominees for the same-name prize,” said Andrey Rudskoi, rector of SPbPU.

“The categories of the Global Energy Prize – Conventional Energy, Non-Conventional Energy and New Ways of Energy Application – fully correspond to the topics covered in the journal. The journal’s authors will include not only established scientists and experts but also the winners of the Young Scientist youth programme. This will undoubtedly help advance their scientific careers, which is one of the Association’s main goals,” noted Sergey Brilev, president of the Global Energy Association.

The journal’s scientific director is Yury Vasiliev, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Soviet and Russian hydraulic engineer, SPbPU academic supervisor and author of more than 270 research papers, including 19 books and textbooks. In November 2022, he received an Honorary Diploma of the Global Energy Association for his outstanding contribution to the energy industry.

The journal will be issued four times a year. An electronic version of the publication is available on the SPbPU website and on the website of the Global Energy Association.

Gas-fired power plants account for 60% of Africa’s generating capacity growth

The capacity of all types of power plants in Africa grew by 145 GW between 2000 and 2021, which is comparable to the capacity of the available wind generators in the United States (141 GW). According to the Ember research centre estimates, gas-fired thermal power plants (TPPs) provided 60% of the growth, coal-fired TPPs, fuel oil and diesel generators – 17%, whereas all renewable sources (RES) accounted for 23%.

Distributed generation capacity in Brazil exceeded that of gas-fired power plants

The number of distributed generation systems in Brazil reached 1.8 million units in the first quarter of 2023; their total capacity is 19 GW, which exceeds the capacity of all gas-fired power plants operating in the country (14.5 GW). Such data are provided by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the US Department of Energy with reference to the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (Agência Nacional de Energia Elétrica, ANEEL).
