We are delighted to bring you the July edition of the World Energy Focus, the monthly e-magazine of the World Energy Council.
In the July interview, Michael Hannibal, CEO of Offshore operations Siemens Gamesa, the company’s renewables division, explains the drivers behind its development and how the industry is planning to keep lowering the cost of wind energy.

World Energy Focus explores what the Opec decision to extending its production cuts to regulate the market really means against the forecasted US oil production surge?
Our Country Focus takes you to the far east where Malaysia’s primary energy mix is looking to evolve over the next two decades. While fossil fuels are expected to remain the country’s dominant source of energy, Malaysia has ambitious plans to expand its use of renewables in power generation to reduce its dependence on oil and gas and cut its carbon emissions by 45% by 2030, from 2005 levels. How are they planning to do it? And how will this impact their Energy Trilemma ranking from their current position in the top 50?
This 35th edition also brings a roundup of news and innovation stories from around the world impacting the energy sector, learn more about: the key findings from both the latest Energy Technology Perspectives (ETP) 2017 report and the BP’s latest Statistical Review; the potential positive impact on CO2 emissions and reducing poverty of the new “ZeroRoutine Flaring by 2030”programme launched by the World Bank to wipe out the practice during routine oil production of burning excess gas; and how China is taking the leadership role to a cleaner energy system at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM), having just completed the world’s largest floating solar project with a 40MW facility.
