The Global Energy Prize laureate Sergey Alekseenko will present the RES prospects on the 2019 ARWE forum
On May 22, Sergey Alekseenko, the 2018 Global Energy Prize laureate, member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, will speak at the ARWE 2019 International Forum on Renewable Energy. At the panel discussion “Ratification of the Paris Agreement in Russia: Potential Impact on RES Sector Development”, which will be held in the first day of the forum, the scientist will consider the structure of global energy consumption in implementing the Paris climate deal and the prospects for the development of renewable energy in Russia and in the world. The event will be held in the Plenary Hall at 16.10.
Global climate changes, caused by greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere, require a revision of the action strategy of the players of the world energy system. The Paris climate deal is called to strengthen the measures to combat climate change in order to keep the increase in global temperature within 2 ° C and try to reduce this figure to 1.5 ° C. According to Sergey Alekseenko, the implementation of the Paris Agreement will cause radical changes in the structure of the world energy consumption in the forthcoming decades. However, there are a number of serious doubts in the justification of the Agreement and the concept of “global warming” as a whole. In his view, there is a need in systematic scientific research of the causes of the climate changes, but it does not mean that the future world energy will avoid focusing on the renewable sources of energy. According to Alekseenko, the solar and geothermal energy are the most promising types of renewable energy sources. In more detail on the aspects of the Paris Agreement and on proposals on the development of renewable energy in Russia and in the whole world, the speaker will elaborate at the thematic panel discussion in the first day of the program of the ARWE 2019 Forum.
Recall that Sergey Alekseenko, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and an expert in the areas of thermal physics, energy industry and energy conservation, became laureate of the Global Energy Prize in 2018 for preparing the thermal physical principles for the creation of modern energy and energy-saving technologies, which help to design environmentally friendly thermal power plants.
