A million for an innovation! The winner of The II Energy of Breakthrough All-Russian Contest is announced in Moscow.
Energy efficiency and environmental safety are in the spotlight of the experts. This year The Energy of Breakthrough is awarded to the scientist from Novosibirsk (West Siberia, Russia) Mikhail Chernetskiy.
As a recall, The Energy of Breakthrough All-Russian competition of implemented innovative projects in the field of energy was established by The Global Energy NPP in 2014. Russian scientists under 35 years old from all regions of the country can participate in the contest. The main criterion is having an implemented project or invention in the field of energy.This year innovators from 22 regions of Russia have competed for the award. They presented their projects in almost all areas of energy to the judgment of independent experts. The majority of works was devoted to energy efficiency (29%) , electric power (24%) and energy resourses exploration, extraction and transportation (18%).
The winner is Mikhail Chernetskiy, senior research fellow at The Institute of Thermal Physics under the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciebnces, for the project "Complex of mathematical models for the processes of coal fuels flare combustion, formation of harmful emissions and slagging of heating surfaces in coal-fired boilers "
The project of Mikhail Chernetskiy is already widely implemented at several power plants in Siberian region, the econimic effect is approximately $180 000 a year. The Energy of Breakthrough Award Ceremony is scheduled for September this year.
