Nomination of candidates is the first stage of the cycle. The collected applications will be forwarded to independent experts for review and evaluation against the established criteria including the scientific novelty and practical effect. Fifteen best applications – three in each category – will comprise a shortlist, which will be used by the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee during its private Meeting to select the winners – the 2023 Global Energy Prize laureates. Their names will be published in July, and the award ceremony will take place in October.
“Supporting fundamental research is especially meaningful in the situation of geopolitical turbulence and climatic disturbances, which violated the access to affordable energy for many people (especially in not very wealthy countries). The developments facilitating access to clean and reliable energy (especially in the developing world) are of high demand during the crisis”, Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association said.
The Global Energy Prize serves to honour the outstanding research and developments in the energy sphere. Self-nomination of candidates is not possible. The nomination package should contain a motivation letter with detailed substantiation of nominating this particular candidate, as well as clear, explicit and unambiguous wording of the candidate’s merits deserving the Prize. On top of that, the application should include the list of the most important publications of the candidate on the nominated topic, as well as international patents (if any) and expert opinions by the energy agencies and leading companies of the industry.
