German interest is high in energy-providing countries, including Malaysia, whose prowess clearly lies in the area of solar energy.

Malaysia is participating in the upcoming Hanover show with a 16-member exhibitor contingent, along with exhibitors from China, India, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea, and will showcase its strength in the energy services sector, industrial supply and research and development.

German interest in Malaysia's energy sector is also evident from the industry's close monitoring of the changes taking place at the Selangor-based Malaysian subsidiary of Germany's Q-Cells.

German experts point out that Malaysia has done pioneering work in the area of solar energy production.

Though Germany does not have any significant solar-energy producing plants, its forte lies in the production of wind energy.

Nowhere is this more visible than in and around the windy city of Hannover where windmill-like contraptions protrude and greet visitors arriving by planes, trains and automobiles.

It is no wonder that technology researchers and scientists from Malaysia's academic institutions, when attending Hanover trade fairs, can barely take their eyes away from the wind-energy producing facilities.

Many German and Malaysian experts agree that marrying German expertise in wind-energy production with Malaysia's solar-energy resources and facility could result in "incredible synergies" that could benefit both sides.

The explosion caused in Japan's atomic reactors following the tsunami-earthquake disaster has underscored the urgency of finding alternative sources of energy.

04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
