One million rubles for energetic innovations: the application period for the Energy of Breakthrough-2018 contest is opened
On March 1, the Global Energy Association starts accepting applications for participation in the IV All-Russian contest of implemented innovative energy projects, the Energy of Breakthrough. Scientists, students, PhD students and specialists of industry organizations under the age of 45 can take part in it. The deadline for applications is 30 April 2018. The winner will receive a personal bonus of 1 million rubles.
The Global Energy Association holds the Energy of Breakthrough contest every year since 2014. Its main purpose is to support talented Russian scientists and impulse them for the further development of their technologies. It should be noted that the main criterion is the availability of own development, implemented in production. Thus, the contest contribute to the development of Russian competitive products and breakthrough innovations.
The last year’s contest winner is Leonid Plotnikov, young innovator from Ekaterinburg who received 1 million roubles for developing the innovative technology that allows increasing power and efficiency of the internal combustion engines. It is extremely important for the development of national economy because the internal combustion engines are used in all its fields being the most common energy source among the heat engines. Leonid’s technology for the naturally aspirated engines increases its power by 15% and decreases CO2 emission by 10% through more complete combustion of the fuel. The solutions for the supercharged engines allow clearing of waste gases, decrease specific fuel consumption by 1.5% and increase efficiency by 2%. That allows to decrease costs for the fuel for one car owner for 500 000 Rubles, which means multimillion saving on a scale of the whole Russia. The scientist’s new goal is to create new engine with upgraded systems and bringing it to market.
For participation in the Energy of Breakthrough contest it’s necessary to submit an application on the Global Energy Prize website in the section “Our programs” / “The Energy of breakthrough”: http://nomination.ge-prize.org/breakthroughEnergy.
The winner will be announced on the 21st of May.
