Igor Lobovsky, President, Global Energy Association, spoke to RBC+ about Russia’s place in the global energy market and prospects of utilizing alternative energy sources.
Una coppia di attempati ingegneri decide di cambiare vita e grazie ai finanziamenti di Obama lavora al'uovo di Colombo per le emissioni. Immaginate una centrale a gas (che è una centrale che produce elettricità utilizzando il gas naturale come combustibile) a zero emissioni, senza ciminiere da cui escono minacciose nuvole di fumo. Prendete poi due brillanti e irrequieti ex studenti del Massachusetts Institute of Technology, il primo Bill Brown finito a lavorare a Wall Street, stratega finanziario per Morgan Stanley. Il secondo Miles Palmer, suo collega di università, chimico alla Saic, Science Applications International Corporation, società attiva nel settore difesa.
The main theme of the summit was Three E (Economics, Ecology, Energy) Synthesis Formation as a health factor of the Earth: The Hydrocarbon Époque – Opportunities for New Technology Development.
Experts discussed a comprehensive approach in the development of world energy at the Global Energy Prize Summit.
The director-general of the International Renewable Energy Agency has said that the countries with large reserves of oil and gas, are taking more and more steps to increase investments in renewable energy and the share of such energy sources in their electricity mix.
The director-general of the International Renewable Energy Agency believes that the trajectory of decarbonization in the US will continue, despite the official withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement.
Laureates of the Global Energy Prize have discussed the current problems of the energy industry. The discussion was held within the framework of the "Formation of a new generation of technologies" event at the Russian Energy Week forum.
The humanity is facing a challenge – how to build a modern industrial society at the lowest possible cost with minimum damage to the environment. The annual Global Energy Prize Summit was held under the slogan of Three E (Economics, Ecology, Energy). As a result of the discussion, another “e” was added – energy efficiency.
Global Energy Prize Experts have not figured out yet how to make the world switch to RES How to combine new power technologies with energy efficiency and decarbonisation of energy – that was the subject discussed by the Global Energy Prize laureates and members of the International Award Committee at the annual summit in Lyon. Experts unsurprisingly believe electric energy to be the centrepiece of the future more distributed system and to replace hydrocarbon fuel, with green generation becoming the main energy source. However, their visions of the timing of this quantum leap vary significantly. Besides, there is no consensus as to whether this transition should be supported by government subsidies, or the “new energy” has to make its way naturally, relying on market factors. Yuri Barsukov reporting.
Decarbonization of energy, investments in clean and new energy sources, as well as the creation of a dynamic low-carbon economy is a new paradigm that will help solve the pressing challenges facing humanity. It is the synthesis of the three "e" (energy, economy, ecology) that will be the decisive factor for the health of our planet, the laureates of the Global Energy Prize and members of the International Award Committee are convinced. They reached this conclusion on September 18, during the VI Global Energy Prize Summit, held at the HQ of the Euronews TV channel.
The Global Energy Prize Summit 2017 took place at the Euronews headquarters in Lyon, France. It will unite the Global Energy Prize laureates, members of International Award Committee and authoritative experts from 8 countries.
Hydrocarbons will dominate as energy carriers for most types of vehicles at least until the 2050s. This forecast was voiced at the sixth international energy forum in Lyon by the scientific director of the Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, laureate of the Global Energy Prize 2016 - Valentin Parmon.
Het scheelde weinig of de orkaan Harvey had het 50 MW demonstratiemodel van Net Power’s gascentrale met CO2-afvang beschadigd. De bouwplaats aan het Houston Ship Channel liep onder water, maar de schade aan het project van zo’n € 128 miljoen bleef beperkt.
For years, optimists have talked up carbon capture and storage (CCS) as an essential part of taking emissions out of electricity generation. Yes, build wind and solar farms, they have said, but they can’t be relied on to produce enough power all the time. So we’ll still need our fleet of fossil-fuel-burning power stations; we just need to stop them pumping carbon dioxide (CO₂) into the atmosphere.
Ils font briller la Suisse à l’étranger (2/6)Chercheur à l’EPFL, il est l’un des chimistes les plus connus au monde pour ses travaux sur la photosynthèse. Il vient de recevoir le Global Energy Prize à Saint-Pétersbourg.
Despite slightly dropping in popularity in the next 50 and 90 years, gas will dominate among traditional energy sources, comprising approximately 24% and 21% of total energy balance, respectively. Solar energy will prevail over other clean sources, comprising over a quarter of the total energy balance by the beginning of next century, experts believe.
Gas and solar power will dominate the world’s energy mix within the next 50 years, according to a report released this week by the Moscow-based Global Energy Association, which administers the annual Global Energy Prize.
The Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation Alexander Novak presented the gold medal of the Global Energy Prize to the Swiss scientist Michael Graetzel during the ceremony at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
Global Energy Prize chief calls for 10% drop by 2100. Smokes billow out of chimneys at a chemical plant in north China’s Tianjin municipality, December 23, 2008 (reissued 31 May 2017). By 2100, CO2 emissions from power, domestic and commercial space heating, industrial production, and transportation should be reduced to 10% of current level, a new study presented at the St Petersburg Economic Forum finds.
Experts said that in 15 years the largest energy resources producer will be the United States, 50 years later – Russia, and 100 years later – China.
ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) — Investment in renewable energy will continue to grow worldwide and in Russia in particular, International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Director-General Adnan Amin told Sputnik on the sidelines of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
Young scientists from the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technology, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO) are working on the development of a laser device that will enable exploration of oil and gas fields. As the project manager Sergey Kashcheev has informed, the device can appear at the disposal of geologists within 3-5 years.
Between the energy hub of Houston, Texas, and the Gulf Coast lies a sprawling petropolis: a sea of refineries and oil storage tanks, power lines, and smokestacks, all dedicated to converting fossil fuels into dollars. They are the reason why the Houston area emits more carbon dioxide (CO2) than anyplace else in the United States.

GROWING UP IN ENGLAND after World War II, "all the youngsters like me were obsessed with aircraft," says Rodney Allam. "I had a picture on my wall of Chuck Yeager when he broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1, the earliest turbine-driven aircraft." Those high-powered machines were inspirational. Allam became a chemical engineer and went to work at the U.K. division of Air Products & Chemicals, based in Allentown, Pennsylvania. There in the 1970s, he became obsessed with an idea: how to capture the carbon-dioxide emissions from the U.K.'s giant coal-burning power plants? He already knew where to put the CO2. BP and Royal Dutch Shell would jump at the chance to inject it into their vast oilfields in the North Sea. Injecting the gas (which acts as a solvent to free up stubborn crude oil) has long been a common practice in West Texas fields, where oil companies tap naturally occurring reservoirs of CO2. But there were none of those in England.
The technology, carbon capture, involves pulling carbon dioxide out of smokestacks and industrial processes before the climate-altering gas can make its way into the atmosphere. Mr. Trump’s denial of the overwhelming scientific evidence supporting climate change, a view shared by many of his cabinet nominees, might appear to doom any such environmental initiatives.
