This ambitious report prepared under the aegis of Economic Policy Forum focuses on the future of global energy systems, supply-side economics and the pressures for energy diversification, energy efficiency and energy access at the country and sub-national level. The expansive scope of the study is based on the assumption that the reader is familiar with contemporary conversations on energy; it seeks to inform the reader of analyses and perspectives from Economic Policy Forum member countries by synthesising the deliberations in the meetings thus far and building upon the substantive research work conducted through the platform. The focus of research in the Economic Policy Forum follows from the relevance of emerging countries such as BRICS in energy policy debates. One of the paradoxes in such debates, as is pointed out in the report, is the fact that the countries which face the largest energy challenges, or the most important energy policy-related questions, are also countries where policymaking variables are in constant flux. Conversely, in the case of developed countries, a number of fundamental assumptions are well known, which include expectations about consumer demand and industrial consumption extrapolated on the basis of demographic as well as socio-economic trends.
This aim of this paper is the interpretation of the results of mechanical testing of materials to determine their properties under hot deformation. As an example, a simulation of rod stretching in superplasticity mode was considered. Comparing obtained data with the analytical solution was conducted.
Quick economic development on India dictates the necessity of its energy base improvement. One could hardly overestimate the importance of so called seven sisters or seven states of North-East India. One of these states is Nagaland (16 579 км2, population -1, 980, 602), the first tribal state of India. There are deposits of gold, uranium, chromium, jade, natural gas and oil. This is the first state in the region having created a special Agency for renewable energy. The article is dedicated to the problems of energy development in the state.
