RECOGNISING OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENTS IN ENERGY

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.

Session ‘Mission possible: scientific response to universal energy challenges ’ will be held as a part of REW 2019.

On October 4th panel session ‘Mission possible: scientific response to universal energy challenges’ will be held as a part of the Russian Energy Week International Forum. The Global Energy Prize laureates and experts from six countries will define the key technologies that can meet the global energy challenges, scenarios to achieve sustainable energy development and the role of science in this process. The session is organized by the Global Energy Association for the development of international research and projects in the field of energy.

Humanity stands on the verge of the new technological cycle. The scope of changes and the complexity of solutions to be introduced within the new industrial revolution differ from those of previous global transformations. Global community is witnessing the trends of the Fourth Industrial Revolution while  suffering from the consequences of the Third one. In the era of a transition to the new technological cycle, the access to the reliable and safe energy is a primary goal.

Modern countries have to find solutions for solving global energy challenges. They have to frame their policy in the field of energy taking into consideration fast changing technologies and global climate problems. The participants of the panel session will define the key science solutions aimed to achieve the sustainable energy future, consider the best innovative technologies focused on the increasing of energy efficiency and use of renewable energy resources and “clean technologies”. Also, the experts will focus on the measures needed for a complete transformation of the energy sphere.

«The global economy is going through a very difficult period nowadays, which has a direct impact on the condition of energy sphere. Global issues in the sphere of energy not only undermine the economic stability of States, but they influence on the ecological sustainability of the Planet. Obviously, for solving these problem the set of measures is needed, which is based on the latest scientific and technological developments. I strongly believe that our experts will not only explore current critical points of global energy landscape, but also they will define concrete actions, needed to achieve sustainable future,” commented on the agenda of the upcoming event the Head of the Association, Alexandr Ignatov.

The 2019 Global Energy Prize laureates  Frede Blaabjerg (Denmark) and Khalil Amine (USA) will take part in the session. The scientists are working on the development of technologies in the spheres of expanding infrastructural problems of the energy sector. The Global Energy Prize Award Ceremony will be held on October 3rd at 11.30 (Conference hall ‘Plenary’) within the Russian Energy Week International Forum.

In discussion will also participate Rodney John Allam (United Kingdom), the 2012 Global Energy Prize laureate; Member of the IPCC, awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, Marta Bonifert (Hungary) the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee member; Hungarian Business Leaders Forum (HBLF), Board Member, Sustainability Work Stream Leader. Oleg Budargin (Russia), Chairman of the Global Energy Association’s Board of Trustees; Vice-Chairman of the World Energy Council; Rae Kwon Chung (South Korea), the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee Chairman; UN Secretary-General’s High-level Expert and Leaders Panel (HELP) on water and disasters, Adviser to the Chair, awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.

The session ‘Mission possible: scientific response to universal energy challenges’ will be held on October 4th at 10.00 am. Venue: Moscow, Central Exibition Hall ‘Manege’, Manezhnaya Square, 1.
