The Global Energy Association's Session at The REW 2019
October 4, 2019

Manege Central Exhibition Hall, Moscow, Manezhnaya pl. 1

Mission possible: scientific response to universal energy challenges

Humanity is on the cusp of a new technological cycle. The scope of changes and the complexity of solutions to be introduced within the new industrial revolution differ from those of previous global transformations. In the light of new reality, demand for electricity will continue to grow, given that according to the UN data, every fifth person has no access to this energy carrier. Over a billion people, who live mostly in rural areas, suffer from energy poverty. Global community is witnessing trends of the 4th Industrial Revolution while suffering the consequences of the Third one. Now the countries are bound to seek for solutions of universal energy challenges and shape their energy policies keeping in mind the rapidly changing technologies and environmental issues.

Within our panel session, the speakers will identify the capability of scientific and technological potential in modernising and digitalising universal energy systems and evaluate the role of researchers in solving world energy issues.
