One month left before closing the call for nominating candidates for the Global Energy Prize 2023
The 20th jubilee nomination cycle of the Global Energy Prize started on 1 January 2023 and will end on 20 April 2023. Applications for three categories are accepted: Conventional Energy, Non-Conventional Energy and New Ways of Energy Application.

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.

You can learn more about the nomination procedure and the Prize description, as well as make an application online on the Global Energy Association website.

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).
