John Mathews: "Renewable Energy and the Real Clash of Civilizations"

John Mathews: "Renewable Energy and the Real Clash of Civilizations" | "3e" | Energy - Ecology - Economy | Scoop.it

Which civilization will win and which will lose — the one based on fossil fuels or the one based on renewables?

 

It may be difficult to see through all the smog currently engulfing Beijing and other Chinese cities, but there is a green energy revolution taking place in China. The Chinese push for green technologies — which stands in stark contrast to the dithering U.S. approach — is good news if we have any hope of decarbonizing our industrial civilization.

How to Power the World without Fossil Fuels

How to Power the World without Fossil Fuels | "3e" | Energy - Ecology - Economy | Scoop.it

Mark Jacobson says he can run the planet solely on wind, water and solar energy. First stop: New York State.

 

Three times now, Mark Jacobson has gone out on the same limb. In 2009 he and co-author Mark Delucchi published a cover story in Scientific American that showed how the entire world could get all of its energy—fuel as well as electricity—from wind, water and solar sources by 2030. No coal or oil, no nuclear or natural gas. The tale sounded infeasible—except that Jacobson, from Stanford University, and Delucchi, from the University of California, Davis, calculated just how many hydroelectric dams, wave-energy systems, wind turbines, solar power plants and rooftop photovoltaic installations the world would need to run itself completely on renewable energy.

Büyükşahin: "The Changing Structure of Energy Trading Markets"

Büyükşahin: "The Changing Structure of Energy Trading Markets" | "3e" | Energy - Ecology - Economy | Scoop.it

Energy trading markets have been undergoing radical transformation lately. These transformations are set to accelerate in 2013 because of much anticipated implementation of new rules that will govern global swaps markets.  These  include  measures  such  as  position  limits,  mandatory  clearing  and  margin  requirements,  capital  requirements,  pre-  and  post- trade  transparency  through  position  reporting  requirements  to  trade  repositories,  as  well  as trading  standardised  swaps  on  designated  contract  organisations or swap execution facilities where multiple traders can place bids and offers, and real time  reporting  of  cleared  and  uncleared  swaps  to  the  centralised  swap  data  repositories.  These  changing  dynamics  present  new  challenges  not  only  for  financial  speculators,  who  buy  or  sell  any  asset  in  the  anticipation of a price change, but also for traditional energy companies that use previously unregulated  financial derivative instruments to hedge or mitigate commercial risk.
