The competition is now closed.

Here are the list of winners.

To all practitioners, academicians, researchers, government officials and students, we have exciting news for you.

To celebrate PYC’s 6th anniversary in 2022, PYC will hold a Paper Competition. Join now and have a chance to win a total prize of IDR 27,750,000.

The competition is free of charge.

The PYC chose the theme of “Energy Security for a Sustainable Future”. This theme was chosen considering the importance of energy security for a sustainable future, particularly during the recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic had created a worldwide drop on energy demand in general. However, we expect that the future energy demand will increase again after the condition is back to normal. Along with the recovery in the energy sector after COVID-19, maximizing the potential of energy resources is a vital step to enhancing the energy security of a country. These energy resources could come from both the new and renewable energy as well as the fossil energy. The development and utilization of the energy will act as bridging energy during the transition period towards a sustainable future. In addition, it is also important for countries to follow sustainable development principles in planning energy security development.

The paper competition aims to stimulate high-quality research to gather insights, analyses and up-to-date findings from practitioners, academicians, researchers, government officials or students on matters of energy security and sustainable development.
