SAINT PETERSBURG WILL RECEIVE ELECTRICITY TROUGH THE WORLD’S LONGEST SUPERCONDUCTOR LINE

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true: in the nearest future, a significant part of the electric power in St. Petersburg will be transmitted almost without loss through the world's biggest direct current high-temperature superconducting cable line (HTS CL). Rosseti FGC UES has performed large-scale testing on the full length of this cable line at its research and development center (R&D center of FGC UES, Rosseti Group).

OIL AND CHEESE. A rare inside look at the OPEC + and the G20 meeting

How exactly were organised the negotiations between the states, which decided to work out a formula on reducing oil production in the name of price stabilisation at the time of coronavirus pandemic? They’d said a lot of nasty things about each other before. Can we call them friends again? This short piece is a look from the inside at these negotiations. On the night of Friday to Saturday, Minister of Energy of the Russian federation Alexander Novak welcomed me in his office as a television journalist and as a President of the Global Energy Association. The conversation took place in his office’s reception aerea, where gifts and souvenirs from overseas colleagues are usually kept. And now a gigantic screen is mounted there, it displays video signals from the negotiating countries (due to the coronavirus, face-to-face meetings are impossible for now). This conversation was partially shown in my weekly TV show. But only the Global Energy Prize website publishes the details that were not on the air.

Good News From The Parallel Energy Sector

As someone who also anchors a weekly television programme I should say that despite the endless debate around correct measuring of TV ratings, they do reveal certain trends. The first conclusion to be made based on the results of these weeks is that when people are at home, they are once again turning on their “old-fashioned” TV sets. Ratings are on the rise worldwide.

Solar Energy for the Darkest Places on Earth

The whole world is in alarm state due to the coronavirus pandemic. Social networks and most of the media are full of negative headlines and keep frightening us with disappointing forecasts. Nevertheless, there is a lot of positive news. Science does not stand still and continues to develop future technologies for the benefit of humanity. Russian scientists from the Moscow Radiotechnical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences have patented a system for transferring energy from a space – based solar power station to Earth. It is expected that a solar power system will be able to transmit energy using microwaves to the remote areas of the planet, where it is impossible to lay ground power lines. The Global Energy Prize experts have shared their opinion on possibility of construction that kind of solar power plant.
