The young scientists found out how to “prolong life” of the hydroturbine equipment. They are among the winners of the XIII All-Russian contest of youth scientific projects “The Energy of Youth”.
Balancing growing demand with the need to tackle climate change is the key challenge facing the world. By 2050, global demand for energy will have grown by 50 percent, according to scientists.
Die globale Nachfrage nach Energieressourcen wird bis 2050 deutlich zunehmen. Darüber waren sich die Teilnehmer des diesjährigen Global Energy Prize Summit einig.
The Global Energy Prize Summit’ 2016 took place in the end of November in the framework of the V international forum on energy efficiency and energy development ENES-2016.
A new energy order should become the response to the challenges. This conclusion was made by the leading scientists from various countries and the Prize laureates in the course of the Global Energy Prize Summit in Moscow.
The scientist urges to change the government’s attitude to geological exploration
The Global Energy Prize Summit`2016 took place in Moscow and became the key event of the V International forum on energy efficiency and energy development ENES 2016.
Nowadays tackling the issue of global warming is mainly aimed at the so-called “two degrees purpose”: the average temperature on the planet must not increase more than two degrees compared to the pre-industrial level. This aim requires decrease of CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.
The expert from the Republic of Korea is convinced that people are those who 95% responsible for the global warming
The awarding ceremony took place in the framework of the 5th International forum on energy efficiency and energy development ENES 2016
Mr. Rae Kwon Chung – the world-renowned expert on the sustainable development and climate change issues, the author of “green growth” (“green economy”) concept. This concept substantially complements the strategy of sustainable development, the basic principle of which is economic growth while maintaining the ecologic balance for the benefit of future generations.
Russia's Global Energy Prize has become a benchmark for scientific advance. As part of Russia’s attempts to address global pollution, in 2002 its leading scientists established the Global Energy Prize to honor and reward scientists from around the world for developing cleaner energy technologies. The value of the prize is 39 million rubles ($600,000), and this year’s award went to the Russian researcher Prof. Valentin Parmon.
“Brighter Together” – that was the slogan of the first All-Russia Festival of Energy Saving and Efficiency, which started on the 2nd of September. The theme is quite topical, that is why it was supported by the RF Ministry of Energy, Ministry of Education, National Committee for BRICS Research, the Global Energy Prize laureates and a number of youth, social and research organizations.
The academician proved that renewable energy can be not only effective but also cheap.
Valentin Parmon speaks on the role of catalysis and photocatalysis in the industrial progress.
A prominent scientist told, for what he was awarded the Global Energy Prize and about the prospects for alternative energy.
The prize is given “for a breakthrough development of new catalysts in the area of petroleum refining and renewable sources of energy as a principal contribution into the energy of the future”
According to the General Director of "Power machines", the Global Energy Prize will be a good incentive for the employees
Valentin Parmon will receive the state award from the President at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June, 17th.
Granit of science: The Global Energy Prize laureates and the GEP International Award Committee members have determined key energy products and technologies the emergence and commercialization of which will contribute to the intensive development of the global energy field.
On 9 March, NET Power – a collaboration between Exelon Generation, CB&I, and 8 Rivers Capital – announced it had broken ground on a first-of-a-kind power plant that will demonstrate the Allam Cycle. This novel concept (described by its inventor, Rodney Allam, in Modern Power Systems, May 2013 issue) employs oxyfuel combustion of gaseous fuel and supercritical high pressure carbon dioxide as the working fluid to drive a turbine, with the inherent elimination of all atmospheric emissions without requiring expensive, efficiency-reducing “add-on” carbon capture equipment.
Will Elon Musk receive the Global Energy Prize from the President of Russia? For those who do not follow the trend: Elon Musk is a famous innovator, the "father" of a number of ambitious and successful projects in space and on Earth: Pay Pal and Space X, Powerwall batteries and Hyperloop vactrain, Mars Colonial Transporter and Futurism electric plane... And, of course, the revolutionary electric car Tesla.
The Global Energy Prize laureate Shuji Nakamura explains how his invention of blue LEDs is helping solve global warming.
