The humanity is facing a challenge – how to build a modern industrial society at the lowest possible cost with minimum damage to the environment. The annual Global Energy Prize Summit was held under the slogan of Three E (Economics, Ecology, Energy). As a result of the discussion, another “e” was added – energy efficiency.
Global Energy Prize Experts have not figured out yet how to make the world switch to RES How to combine new power technologies with energy efficiency and decarbonisation of energy – that was the subject discussed by the Global Energy Prize laureates and members of the International Award Committee at the annual summit in Lyon. Experts unsurprisingly believe electric energy to be the centrepiece of the future more distributed system and to replace hydrocarbon fuel, with green generation becoming the main energy source. However, their visions of the timing of this quantum leap vary significantly. Besides, there is no consensus as to whether this transition should be supported by government subsidies, or the “new energy” has to make its way naturally, relying on market factors.

Decarbonization of energy, investments in clean and new energy sources, as well as the creation of a dynamic low-carbon economy is a new paradigm that will help solve the pressing challenges facing humanity. It is the synthesis of the three "e" (energy, economy, ecology) that will be the decisive factor for the health of our planet, the laureates of the Global Energy Prize and members of the International Award Committee are convinced. They reached this conclusion on September 18, during the VI Global Energy Prize Summit, held at the HQ of the Euronews TV channel.
The Global Energy Prize Summit 2017 took place at the Euronews headquarters in Lyon, France. It will unite the Global Energy Prize laureates, members of International Award Committee and authoritative experts from 8 countries.
Hydrocarbons will dominate as energy carriers for most types of vehicles at least until the 2050s. This forecast was voiced at the sixth international energy forum in Lyon by the scientific director of the Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, laureate of the Global Energy Prize 2016 - Valentin Parmon.
Het scheelde weinig of de orkaan Harvey had het 50 MW demonstratiemodel van Net Power’s gascentrale met CO2-afvang beschadigd. De bouwplaats aan het Houston Ship Channel liep onder water, maar de schade aan het project van zo’n € 128 miljoen bleef beperkt.
