Scientists from nine countries shortlisted for 2023 Global Energy Prize

The shortlist of the 2023 Global Energy Prize includes 15 scientists from nine countries: China, India, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland and the USA.

YEREVAN, Armenia, May 30, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The shortlist of the 2023 Global Energy Prize includes 15 scientists from nine countries: China, India, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, Switzerland and the USA.

"The fact that so many countries are taking part in the Global Energy nomination cycle and that new regions are joining us not only underlines the high status of the Prize, but also shows how important science and international dialogue are for the development of the global energy industry," said Rae Kwon Chung, Nobel Prize laureate and Chairman of the Global Energy Prize International Award Committee.

The drawing up of the shortlist marked the conclusion of the second stage of the Prize's nomination cycle. The first stage ? acceptance of applications for the Prize ? took place between January 1 and April 20, 2023. In that period, a total of 90 nomination submissions from 48 countries were filed, the highest number of participating countries in the Prize's history. The submissions were presented to the independent experts who evaluated them according to a fixed set of criteria. In each category ? Conventional Energy, Non-Conventional Energy, New Ways of Energy Application ? the top five applications with the highest average score were determined to make up the shortlist.

The laureates of the 2023 Global Energy Prize will be chosen during a closed meeting of the International Award Committee to be held in early July.

The shortlist of the nominees for the 2023 Global Energy Prize includes:
