I am greeting the Global Energy Association, Prize Founders and Laureates on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of this important Russian and at the same time international project.
Problem of energy resources, providing with their help the growing world economy, their rational and environmentally sustainable use is one of the most important problems in today’s global, increasingly interdependent world. Therefore, the project orientation to the international cooperation and interaction of scientists from different countries in the common interest, declared right from the start, is of fundamental importance.
I am confident, that searching answers for the global challenges of the XXI century should be central to both science and politics. World policy should not be lagged behind the rapid development of new technologies, and new means of human interaction. I hope that the successful cooperation of scientists will become an example for leaders who determine the political state course.
I wish all those who are involved in this project to stay the course in realization of his ideas, further success in solving the science and production problems, new promising ideas and initiatives.
