In this month’s issue, Olga Gorstenko discusses the energy industry’s agreement to disagree about policy directions in regard to the type of generation resources to dominate stack additions. Her editorial addresses a surge in North American renewable energy generation and a “resurrection” of natural gas and oil. Gillian Dunks also discusses how oil price assessments are generated by price reporting agencies (PRAs), in addition to a new trend in the global oil industry: the rise of Asian oil consumption. Numerous short articles provide updates on events in the energy, commodities, and financial markets in the month of December, including the Mexican Congress’s recent decision to end Pemex’s monopoly on all Mexican oil and gas resources and the EIA’s expansion of data related to renewables in their State Energy Profiles tool.
