Delegates of the BRICS Global Media Tour. Russian Edition take part in Global Energy Prize announcement ceremony

TV BRICS – On Thursday, 6 July, the participants of the BRICS Global Media Tour Russian Edition. were present at the ceremony of announcing the names of the laureates of the Global Energy Prize 2023 which was held in Kemerovo.

TV BRICS and the Global Energy Association have been partners for several years. As part of this cooperation, information about the award winners is posted not only on TV BRICS’ own platforms, but is also made available to the national media audience in the BRICS countries which are partners of the network. “Global Energy” is an event of international scale and high expert level, which is traditionally hosted by Russia.

Daria Ivankova Director of TV BRICS International Cooperation Department told the audience about the goals of the media tour.

“This year, TV BRICS and Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Support Fund organized a special media tour to Russia for the heads and leading journalists of the editorial offices of Brazil, India, China, South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. Our aim was not just to show contemporary Russia from the example of one capital, we wanted to show the regions. We thought a lot about what event would be central in the foreign journalists’ tour to Russia, what event would arouse press interest, demonstrate the Russian approach to organising events on an international scale, and raise a topic that would unite all the countries of the world. This central event was the Global Energy ceremony and a visit to the famous region – Kuzbass” she said.

She added that science diplomacy and media diplomacy, together, can promote the advancement of modern research, exchange of experiences, exchange of experience, rapprochement of scientific communities of different states of the world, and countries in general.

Two scientists from China have won the 2023 Global Energy Prize. The prize was awarded to Zhong Lin Wang for his invention of triboelectric nanogenerators as a new energy technology for autonomous systems, the Internet of Things, robotics, artificial intelligence, and large-scale blue energy harvesting.

Ruzhu Wang won the prize for his research in sorption cooling, which has significantly improved the technology of using low-grade thermal energy to create high-efficiency cooling and for a significant contribution to the development of a dehumidifier-based heat pump, which doubled the energy efficiency of cooling and heating.

Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association, noted that the selection of laureates was determined by an independent committee: “We make a lot of efforts to expand the number of participating countries, to engage in the popularisation of the prize. And especially we have been doing this for the last three years. We had applications from all the BRICS countries this year. We had a record number of applications from Africa and the Middle East.”

The President of the Global Energy Association also stressed that each application which is received undergoes independent technical expertise and is verified by three experts, and then it is considered at a closed meeting of the International Committee.

Zhang Tianxiang CEO of China.com, said it was a great honour for him to participate in the ceremony to announce the names of the 2023 Global Energy Prize laureates. He also praised the ecology of the Kemerovo region.

“When I came to Kuzbass, I was really impressed by the good air quality and environmental conditions of this region. Man needs to find a balance between economic development and environmental protection, and I hope that the relevant Russian experts can share their experience and relevant technologies with their Chinese counterparts,” he said.

Rae Kwon Chung from South Korea, chairman from Global Energy Prize International Award Committee, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, explained why the committee chose these particular laureates.

“These two laureate have come up with a very innovative ways. New ways of utilizing technology to capture very low grade level of waste energy, to be recycled for cooling and heating, and also on other very innovative technology for very small scale nano or scale generators that can be used for a robotics. So this is why we committee has chosen these two laureates,” said Rae Kwon Chung.

Durgesh Singh Bhadauria, senior producer of Asian News International (ANI), spoke about the role of the Global Energy Prize in promoting sustainable connectivity and energy dialogue among the BRICS countries.

“First of all, I would say BRICS is an interesting combination. And we should encourage and promote, reward outstanding representatives in the BRICS countries in the conventional energy sector, and those who choose to promote alternative sources of energy. I think BRICS countries should unite and work together to achieve much more,” noted Bhadauria.

“We have to use science and scientific advances to develop and move forward. Every country is unique, and these are actually inspiring us as different countries to find better ways managing the thermal energy that they use,” stressed Albert Mirirayi Chekayi, director of Zimbabwe’s ZBC news service.

Over the years of its existence, the Global Energy Prize has gained high international status and become a worldwide recognised award. Its main goal was and remains encouragement of scientists for outstanding results of scientific developments and systematic research of global problems aimed at sustainable development of civilisation. The Award promotes an open dialogue in the field of the fuel and energy, and creation of a single platform for interaction between the industry and the scientific community.
