The Global Energy Prize Summit
Having formed a wide network of experts, the Global Energy Association stimulates cooperation in the fuel and energy sector, contributes to the development of a global energy dialogue in which scientists play the most important role. The Global Energy Prize Summit has been held on an annual basis since 2012 to discuss the most pressing energy issues across the industrial and scientific fields, work out precise mechanisms and ways of their solution and their communication to the public and the world’s leading energy organisations. The Global Energy Prize Summit is an exceptional discussion platform where the leading energy experts, business and political representatives exchange opinions and present decisions on the most crucial issues of the energy manufacturing and utilization. The Summit unites the Global Energy Prize laureates and the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee members as well as renowned energy experts, business representatives and political leaders. Since its inception, the Global Energy Summit has been held in 7 countries: Belgium, Germany, Italy, Russia, Singapore, France and Germany. Experts from Great Britain, Hungary, Germany, Iceland, Italy, South Korea, UAE, Russia, Singapore, USA, France, and Japan took part in the events.
