The Global Energy Association on development of international research and projects in the field of energy is an NGO established to promote and support innovations in the field of energy, and to foster international cooperation. Founded in 2002, the organisation works as the operator of the Global Energy Prize.
Since its inception, the Global Energy Prize has gained high international profile and worldwide acclaim. Among the aspects of its vision, the Prize has always been focused on the encouragement of scientists who achieve outstanding success in academic R&D and systematic studies of global issues addressing sustainable development of civilisation. The Prize stimulates an open dialogue in the energy industry and creation of a convenient networking platform for interactions between the industry and the scientific community.
Composite of polymer and MXene particles: new material for energy storage devices
Scientists from the Yuri Gagarin State Technical University of Saratov have developed a composite material that makes it possible to triple the capacity of polymeric energy concentrators. The results of their work have been published in the journal Nanomaterials issued by Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI).
Temperature swings in Arctic may be related to planetary waves, study says
Scientists from Saint Petersburg State University (SPbU) have come to the conclusion based on the results of studying planetary waves that these waves are capable of generating extreme warming and cooling in the Arctic and in northern temperate latitudes. The results of their study have been published in the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, which is issued by the European Geosciences Union.
