ISSUE 28: August - December 2013
WELCOME TO THE GLOBAL ENERGY PRIZE NEWSLETTER
I would like to welcome you to the final newsletter of this eventful year.
Looming energy shortages in several parts of the world showed the necessity of innovation in the energy sector. Ever-growing energy consumption in expanding economies such as China and India indicate the urgency to develop new technologies to efficiently use resources on this planet. What’s more, events such as typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines prove the need to solve our global climate and energy challenges urgently.
I would particularly like to invite you to read our interview with Prof. Dr. Myles Allen, the Head of the Climate Dynamics group at the University of Oxford's Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics Department, who talks about causes and potential solutions to the world’s climate and energy challenges.
We furthermore encourage you to discover the latest developments in the science world and learn about the new technologies currently being developed by scientists which might have a tremendous effect in the future.
Finally, I would like to wish every reader of this newsletter a merry Christmas and a happy and energetic new year.
CEO, Global Energy Prize
