The 2022 Global Energy Prize shortlist has been announced

The prize awarding ceremony will take place in October

The 2022 Global Energy Prize shortlist includes scientists from nine countries: Canada, China, France, India, Kazakhstan, Russia, Singapore, Uruguay, USA. The list was announced on May 24 at the strategic session “Russian Oil and Gas Industry: Development Trends, Challenges and Forecasts” hosted by Ufa as part of the thirtieth international exhibition and forum “Gas. Oil. Technology".

The shortlist announcement finalised the second stage of the nomination cycle. The first one - acceptance of applications for the award from December 01, 2021 to March 20, 2022 - saw a record number of them, i.e.119. The number of participating countries reached forty-three, which exceeds the previous year (36 countries) and the year before (20 countries) and is the highest record in the history of the award. 

The applications received at the second stage were brought before the independent experts who evaluated them according to the fixed criteria, including scientific novelty and practical value. In each nomination - Conventional Energy, Non-Conventional Energy, New Ways of Energy Application - the top five applications with the highest average score were determined and finally made up the shortlist. 

For the first time, the shortlist included representatives from India, Singapore, and Uruguay and a woman-representative of Kazakhstan. 

"The diversity of the submitted researches and the record number of applications confirm that the Global Energy Prize, which has reached its 20th anniversary this year, is really international and continues its movement forward," says Sergey Brilev, the President of the Global Energy Association. 

The 2022 laureates will be chosen during a meeting of the International Award Committee to be held in July. The prize awarding ceremony will take place in October. The shortlist of the nominees for the 2022 Global Energy Prize includes:
