We are delighted to bring you the June edition of the World Energy Focus, the monthly e-magazine of the World Energy Council.
In the June interview to World Energy Focus, ConocoPhillips’ CEO Ryan Lance reveals how the company is adapting to the “new normal” and responds to volatile prices with innovation and a leaner portfolio.
Heading to Latin America and the Caribbean, the new World Energy Council’s scenarios report presents Rock, Tango and Samba, three potential scenarios for the region up to 2060: which rhythm will Latin America and the Caribbean choose? Key findings of the report and interviews with Latin American energy leaders tell us more about the key role played by energy integration if the region is to unveil its full potential and achieve sustainable economic growth of 2.7% to 2060.
This 34th edition also brings a roundup of news and innovation stories from around the world impacting the energy sector, learn more about: blockchain technology looking to offer a “radically simplified vision of the energy world”; drones monitoring oil and gas pipelines and collecting big data; the launch of the West Africa Clean Energy Corridor and California hitting new renewable generated energy record last month.
The alpine nation of Austria is our Country Focus this month. Its strategic position and forward-thinking approach to clean energy make it a European trailblazer. With three quarters of its electricity generated from renewable sources – making it one of the European Union’s top performers and leader of the Energy Trilemma Index scoring AAA in 2016 – Focus explores how the country is approaching its energy transition challenges looking at business models and digitisation.
