The Global Energy Prize annually honors outstanding achievements in energy research and technology from around the world that are helping address the world’s various and pressing energy challenges.


On October 2, Sergey Alekseenko, the 2018 Global Energy Prize LAUREATE, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Head of the Laboratory of thermal power and heat transfer of the Institute of Thermal Physics of the SB RAS, will deliver a lecture at MISIS University on the trends and prospects of energy development in the context of thermal physical issues. The lecture will be held within the framework of the Energy of Knowledge program of the Global Energy Association. The event starts at 04.00 p.m.

Sergey Alekseenko is an expert in the field of thermal physics, power engineering and energy saving. He won the Global Energy Prize in 2018 for the establishment of thermal physical foundations for modern power engineering and energy saving technologies that make it possible to design environmentally safe thermal power plants. In his lecture, the scientist will dwell upon his scientific achievements, consider the role of fundamental science in the development of new energy technologies, assess the future use of renewable energy sources in the country’s energy balance and analyze the trajectories of the development of the Russian energy sector as a whole.

The event will be held in the form of a dialogue between the speaker and the listeners. Alexey Trinchenko, winner of the 2018 Energy of Breakthrough contest, will be the moderator of the press conference. The Energy of Breakthrough contest has been held by the Global Energy Association since 2014. Its goal is to support talented Russian scientists and to inspire them for further advances in the technologies they deal with. Experts and scientists under the age of 45 can participate in the competition. To qualify for participation, the candidates have to produce some invention of their own which has been implemented into practice. Alexey Trinchenko won the competition for the scientific justification of the efficiency of burning solid fuels (coal, peat, etc.) using a low-temperature vortex method which reduces the amount of harmful substances emitted in the course of power generation at thermal power plants.

At the end of the lecture there will be a session of questions and answers, and the author of the most interesting question chosen by the speaker will receive a gift from the Global Energy Association: a book published on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the Global Energy Prize. The title of the book is “The Global Energy Prize: tribute to those who changed the world’.

The Energy of Knowledge program is a series of interactive lectures of the Global Energy Prize laureates and other prominent energy experts. Its goal is to draw the attention of the young audience to the issues of global energy and to inspire youth for scientific research in this sphere.
