I am cordially greeting the sponsors, founders and laureates of the Global Energy Prize. And I congratulate You on the significant date – the 15th anniversary of its foundation.

Over the years, the Global Energy Prize has established as a prestigious independent international award, annually adjudged to outstanding scientists in recognition of their achievements in the field of energy. Today, such innovative ideas and projects that are vitally important and aimed at improving energy efficiency, and promotion of renewable energy sources, are especially actual in the interest of providing the sustainable development and human welfare.

Our country which takes dominant positions in the world energy market will continue to make a complex contribution to strengthening the global energy security. We will continue to cooperate for this purpose with foreign partners – both on a bilateral basis and through sectorial multifeatured organizations such as GECF and OPEC.

I wish You all good health, welfare, new creative successes and discoveries, and all the best.
