In 2017, the Global Energy Prize celebrates its 15th anniversary! This term is small from a historical point of view, but over these years a long way was passed. Over 15 years of the award’s existence, more than 736 candidates were nominated, and 35 outstanding scientists from 11 countries became its laureates. The number of experts with the right to nominate for the award has increased 10 times compared to 2003 - it is 3000 people, and the number of countries united by the Global Energy Prize has increased 12-fold - today it is 90 states. The Global Energy Prize is constantly developing, its importance for the innovative development of world energy can not be overestimated. In its jubilee year, the prize accepts congratulations from its founders, partners, friends and colleagues. The team of the Global Energy Prize expresses gratitude to all the congratulations for sincere and kind words to the project! 

I would like to congratulate You on the 15th anniversary of the Global Energy Prize establishment.

Originated on the initiative of Russia, this Prize has become a brand and received wide international recognition.

For the Russian Federation which occupies a leading position in the world energy market, the Prize contributes to the development of the intellectual potential of the country’s energy future.

Today, a steady increase in global energy demand is accompanied by increasingly strict environmental requirements and negative trends in climate change on the planet. In these conditions, it is especially important to intensify work on all aspects on development of renewable energy sources, and methods on extraction of hard-to-reach fuel and energy resources.  And it is more pleasant to realize that the present and future achievements of science and technology in the field of energy are intended to serve long-term interests of mankind and improve the life quality.

It is particularly pleasant to note that the Global Energy Association has created and successfully implemented special projects for target audiences that allow to involve pupils, students, young researchers and publicists into researches, and development, and thereby to enrich staff potential of scientists and inventors in the field of energy.
I want to express my confidence that with the help of our project of the Global Energy Prize, launched 15 years ago, we will witness the breakthrough achievements of scientific and engineering thought in the field of energy – such most important field of human economic activity.
