WEC to hold session on sustainable energy

The 24th World Energy Congress ( WEC) running from September 9-12 in Abu Dhabi, UAE will hold a panel discussion featuring Global Energy Prize experts on sustainable energy.

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.

“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,” said Alexander Ignatov, head of the Global Energy Association.

“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.”

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.

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.

The Global Energy Association develops international research and projects in the field of energy.

The Global Energy Prize is an international award for outstanding scientific research and technological development in energy. Since 2003, the Global Energy Prize has been awarded to 39 Laureates from 13 countries.
