In an exclusive interview, Dr. Christoph Frei, the Secretary General of the World Energy Council, briefs Anadolu Agency, the global communication partner of the Congress, on Turkey's energy outlook and the topicsthat world energy leaders will discuss. “We are in an amazing transformation period in energy. We see new frontiers and changes in technology, policies, and in the way that markets work. We see changes in the way that risks and resilience affect energy infrastructure. We also see changes in the power shift, and the supply and demand centres. All those aspects define the new frontiers of energy," Dr. Frei says.
According to Dr. Frei, climate change, a key challenge facing the global energy sector for energy security and sustainability, as well as the commodity price storm, are priority issues to be discussed at the World Energy Congress 2016, where a new topic of 'resilience' will also be introduced this year. "What we mean by resilience is that we look to understand what cyber threats or extreme events bring in terms of new risks and new infrastructure requirements to the energy sector," Dr. Frei explains.
