In September 2023, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Professor Borys Basok gave an open lecture "Energy and Global Warming" for master's students majoring in 141 "Electric Power Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electromechanics" at the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic IEE Institute. It was organized in a mixed mode with the possibility of involving bachelor's students, graduate students, teachers and all interested parties.

Borys Basok, winner of the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology, heads the Department of Thermal Physics of Energy Saving Technologies at the Institute of Technical Thermophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He spoke about the historical and predictive aspects of global warming and its causes, the total volume of greenhouse gas emissions and their impact on economic sectors. The lecture also addressed the important concept of integrated energy efficiency of primary energy resources EROEI (Energy Returned on Energy Invested). The speaker emphasized that the problem of global warming should be considered in the triad "energy-economy-environment" in order to achieve a high level of technological structure of the economy.

Students of the Institute of IEE shared their impressions after the lecture:

- Heorhii Kazmiruk ( group GN-31mn): "The information about the impact of global warming on the development of new technologies based on renewable energy sources encouraged me to further research in this area. I plan to conduct them as part of an international exchange program while studying at Otto von Guericke University in Germany. This topic is very relevant today, so we need to motivate humanity to solve the problem and reduce the anthropogenic impact on the environment."

- Yevhen Rabenko (group GN-31mp): "It was interesting to learn about different scientific approaches to the causes of global warming: human activity and natural factors affecting the climate. I was especially interested in the dynamics of primary energy use depending on the world's population and CO2 emissions by region."

- Hanna Potemkina (group GE-31mp): "I was most impressed by the conclusion at the end of the report that if global warming did not exist, from the point of view of the world's leading countries, it should be invented, since the search for and implementation of preventive measures contributes to the development of new energy technologies."
