Energy resources provide unlimited opportunities to confront the main challenges facing the modern world. In the era of transition to a new technological cycle, access to reliable and safe energy is a priority. How can a sustainable future be achieved? Who, if not science, can make this future a reality? These and other questions will be answered by Global Energy Prize experts at the session “Mission possible: the Global Energy Prize as a driver for sustainable energy for all” at the 24th World Energy Congress (September 9-12, Abu Dhabi).

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 2nd September: The participants of the discussion will outline key energy solutions working towards achieving sustainable reality, consider the best innovative technologies aimed at improving energy efficiency, the use of renewable energy sources and clean technologies in traditional energy, and evaluate the amount of financial resources needed for the energy transition. The speakers will also present examples of global energy cooperation in the fight against environmental problems, analyze the policies of countries that are successful in implementing the sustainable development strategy and, in contrast, states whose actions lead to the strengthening of global climate problems. A full list of participants is available at this website.

“The new technological cycle requires novel integrated solutions. In our opinion, the sustainable energy strategy meets the main global challenges facing the world community today. However, for its implementation, in addition to the initiative, political concessions on the part of the world’s leading countries and a radical revision of approaches to energy consumption are needed, as well as a guideline on the rational consumption of resources. I am sure that the experts of our session will not only point out the pressure points of the global energy landscape, but recommend a set of measures that will lead to economic prosperity, a high level of social welfare and an increase in the quality of life,”- commented on the agenda of the upcoming Global Energy Association’s event the head of the company Alexander Ignatov.

Note that the session “Mission possible: the Global Energy Prize as a driver for sustainable energy for all” will be held as a side-event on September 10, 11-12 pm, at Capital Suit 5. To secure your free pass to the event, please register here.

Besides the side-event, the Global Energy Association will delegate its experts to participate in key sessions of the Congress program, present a bright and dynamic stand, as well as organize a special energy quiz.
