Applications for the Global Energy Prize to open on 1 January 2024

On 1 January 2024, the Global Energy Association will start accepting applications for the prize of the same name. Nominations in three categories – Conventional Energy, Unconventional Energy, New Energy Applications – will be accepted until 19 April 2024 inclusive. TV BRICS is the media partner of the award.

The prize fund of the award is 39 million roubles.

The application can be initiated by scientists, researchers and representatives of academic organisations who are ready to provide detailed justifications for nominating a candidate, as well as a list of his/her scientific works and key merits. According to the rules of the Association, self-nomination is prohibited.

Acceptance of applications will be the first stage of the nomination cycle. The received nomination submissions will be submitted to the judgement of independent experts who will evaluate them according to a fixed set of criteria, including scientific novelty and practical value. The top fifteen submissions (five in each category) that receive the highest score will be shortlisted, from which the International Committee, headed by Nobel laureate Rae Kwon Chung, will select the award winners.

“The increasing efficiency of fossil fuels, cheaper renewable energy sources (RES) and the introduction of previously untapped sources are among the key trends in global energy. Therefore, the research and development of the Award winners usually plays a high role in the life of the industry. I hope the new nomination cycle will be no exception,” said Rae Kwon Chung, Chairman of the Global Energy Prize International Committee.

“Big Science knows no national, administrative or political boundaries. Therefore, we look forward to further expanding the geography of the prize – both by countries of the global North, which are traditionally well represented among the nominees, and countries of the global South, to which scientific discoveries can help make energy production and use more affordable,” said Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association.

The award winners will be announced in the summer of 2024 in Ufa, and the award ceremony will be held as part of the Russian Energy Week International Forum to be held in Moscow from 26 to 28 September 2024.

The Global Energy Association is a non-governmental organisation established in 2002 to support research and innovation in the energy sector and to promote energy cooperation. Since 2003, the Association has annually awarded the Global Energy International Prize. The prize winners were 50 scientists from 16 countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Italy, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Switzerland, Ukraine, USA and the United Kingdom.
