14 projects were submitted for the competition, among which were the projects of graduates of Petrozavodsk State University:
Nikita Sergeevich Koryat (PetrSU graduate in 2017), a leading engineer of the sector for servicing heat supply facilities of the Heat Engineering Service of the Administration, presented the project “Prospects for the use of biofuels at energy facilities”;

The competition is very interesting and significant, since it allows young specialists already working at the enterprise to develop their professional competencies, promotes career motivation, allows them to express themselves and declare themselves as a promising employee capable of offering non-standard solutions to problems identified in the course of their professional activities.
As a member of the jury, it was very difficult for me to evaluate the submitted projects, since all of them were carried out at a high professional level, moreover, the projects were evaluated according to several criteria:
The quality of the presentation and performance of the competitor;
Relevance and validity of the problem;
The effectiveness of the solution;
Timing and planning for the implementation of the proposed solution;
The scale of replication of project implementation algorithms at the facilities of other subsidiaries.
It was pleasant to see that among the contestants there were several recent graduates of the Department of Energy Supply of Enterprises and Energy Saving of Petrozavodsk State University. It is very gratifying that the guys continue to engage in research activities, having already left the walls of the Alma Mater and found themselves in the profession. I would like to wish them further success and self-realization.
It should be noted that both works of PetrSU graduates passed to the second round (semi-final) of the competition, which will be held in June – August 2021 at the TGC-1 Administration. I wish all the participants who made it to the semifinals success in the presentation of their projects and further professional and career growth.
I would like to express my gratitude to the management of the Karelsky branch of PJSC TGC-1 for the invitation to participate in the jury and hope for further fruitful cooperation in training personnel for the country’s energy industry,
