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.

1650 hydrogen molecules per hour

The Novosibirsk scientists have proposed a new efficient method for synthesis of a highly active photocatalyst for hydrogen production under the action of sunlight. The materials developed are porous “sponges” made of graphite-like carbon nitride with platinum nanoparticles. The system showed one of the highest values of photocatalytic activity, among all known analogues, with a low content of noble metals, the Russian Science Foundation says.
