BRICS Youth Energy Agency comes back with the leading annual energy research developed solely by young scientists and professionals from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. BRICS Youth Energy Outlook 2020 will be developed by young researchers teams from 30 leading BRICS universities and industry-related organisations.

Read more about the BRICS Youth Energy Outlook 2019 and its presentation at the 2nd BRICS Youth Energy Agency Summit in Moscow as part of the “Russian Energy Week” International Forum Youth Day.

Main Topics 2020:

  1. Smart city: energy efficient cities. Perspectives, opportunities and problems of creating such cities on the scale of a chosen country.
  2. The eco-transport of the future. The influence of electric cars on energy efficiency indicators and needed infrastructure for their unimpeded operation.
  3. New technologies of transport and electricity transmission at a distance.
  4. Current state, future prospects and contribution of non-traditional renewable energy sources to the solution of the problem of local air pollution in large cities.
  5. Space power stations: power supply
  6. The transition to “digital” is inevitable: how the power industry is changing with the introduction of digital and smart systems.
  7. Distributed generation as a trend: how is it implemented in BRICS, and how does it affect the industry?
  8. Smart storage: what technologies allow to accumulate and store energy.
  9. Development of non-traditional renewable energy sources (NRES): pricing, management of operating modes of NRES and increasing the efficiency of power plants based on them.
  10. Non-traditional renewable energy sources vs traditional power system: the change of the established foundations by renewable generation.
  11. New technologies of delivering Non-traditional renewable energy and traditional energy sources to consumers.
  12. The policy of reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emission: global trends, capture and storage technology and the prospects.
  13. The decarbonization of energy supply. Hydrogen energy: the methods of production, storage, transportation, processing, transformation; the prospects.
  14. Traditional hydrocarbon energy within a sustainable development: current consumption patterns, the prospectives, the search for new solutions and technologies (extraction, storage, transport, processing, transformation and conservation).
  15. The development of petrochemistry: prohibition of the use or recycling.
  16. Tax reform in oil industry in BRICS countries – introduction of a tax on additional income.
  17. Nuclear stations for diversification of energy balance, reduction of the ecology load due to thermal generation in the densely populated countries with sustainable growth of demand on electric power.
  18. Desalination complexes integrated with Nuclear Energy Stations as a mean to provide drinkable water in conditions of expected global shortage of this resource
  19. Low capacity nuclear stations with a long fuel cycle to supply energy to remote areas and the areas with a low level of grid development

Special Topic 2020:

Black Swans in Energy Industry: Turbulence on the World Energy Markets and Its Effect on Economic Development

COVID-19, negative oil prices and other challenges of the second decade of the XXI century 

BRICS Youth Energy Outlook 2019

Launched out of sheer enthusiasm and strong believe in the need for energy research between the BRICS countries, the Outlook-2019 attracted more than 100+ young researchers and scientists from 13 BRICS leading universities and energy companies. The Outlook covered the main challenges that BRICS energy sectors face these days, including energy efficiency, cybersecurity, hydrogen energy and many more.

After 8 months of hard work the teams, who contributed the most, were invited to take part in the II BRICS Youth Energy Agency Summit in Moscow, Russia. The Winners were awarded by the Russian Minister of Energy and the Russian Minister of Science and Higher Education.
