“The vast geography of the competition offers yet another proof of the important role the energy industry plays in the life of cities, regions and countries at large. The submissions for the competition covered not only the development of various energy businesses but also the lives of people working in the energy sector. This broad focus gives us a deeper insight into the life of the industry that forms the backbone of modern civilisation,” said Sergey Brilev, President of the Global Energy Association.
