Seminar: Global Energy Transition – Introduction

On February 16, 2023, we launched our new seminar series “Global Energy Transition” for lecturers and students in Central Asia and the Caucasus with the online seminar on “Global Energy Transition – Introduction”. The aim of the seminars is to examine all aspects relevant to the global energy transition and to network universities from Central Asia and the Caucasus with stakeholders and experts from the field of renewable energies.

The seminar on February 16 under the direction of Prof. em. Alexander Kiryuchin focused on the definition of the energy transition, prerequisites for the successful transition from the use of fossil fuels and nuclear energy to a sustainable energy supply based on renewable energies, as well as current trends in the global energy transition. Using examples from countries undergoing the energy transition, in particular Germany, various models were examined that can also be applied to countries in Central Asia and the Caucasus. A further component of the seminar was the presentation and discussion of the potential and status quo of renewable energies in Central Asia and the Caucasus.

Lecturers and students from 14 partner universities from Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan took part in the seminar.

The seminar ended with a quiz and prizes were awarded to the winners.
