New research raises doubt around the climate benefits of the 45Q tax credit for carbon capture and storage for fossil fuel powerplants. --- The Inflation Reduction Act earmarks billions of dollars of incentives for carbon capture and storage from coal and gas-fired powerplants. Ideally, the incentive will provide a path for fossil generators to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions as the electric grid transitions to cleaner resources and to net zero. Yet recent research calls into question the climate impact of the IRA's carbon capture tax credit, known as 45Q. The report, co-authored by a former deputy assistant secretary for the Department of Energy's Office of Carbon Management, finds that 45Q could lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions by incentivizing coal and gas generators to extend their working lives and maximize their output. The result could be billions of dollars of taxpayer money spent with no climate benefit. Emily Grubert, report co-author and now an associate professor of sustainable energy policy at the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame, examines the costs and climate impacts of carbon capture and storage under the IRA. Grubert explains how the 45Q tax credit could lead to unintended climate impacts. She also discusses the need for robust review of proposed carbon capture projects, and strong regulatory guardrails, if 45Q and CCS are to deliver climate benefits. Emily Grubert is an associate professor of sustainable energy policy at the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame, and former deputy assistant secretary in the Office of Carbon Management at the U.S. Department of Energy.

India's energy transition currently comprises a set of ambitious targets, the pathway for which is yet to be designed. While at the Central level, there are a variety of policies, the real challenge lies in their execution. And at the execution level there are at least 28 different clogs to be taken care of. States will need to play a larger role if India has to effectively meet its energy transition goals while being in sync with economic growth. Coal rich states face the challenge of transitioning away from an existing socio-economic framework built over fossil fuels. Non coal ones need to plan for a greener future. And both sets need to have an economic adaptation plan in place for future climate risks. To unfold this complexity of India's energy transition, we talked with Ann Josey, Fellow at Prayas, and Rohit Chandra, Assistant Professor at IIT Delhi. Both Ann and Rohit study different aspects of Indian policymaking with focus on the energy sector and government institutions - both at the Central and State level.

Recent electric grid emergencies highlight the need for better communication, and coordination, between energy policymakers and grid operators. --- In early November the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, convened its annual technical conference on the reliability of the electric grid. In most years the conference attracts little attention beyond electricity industry insiders. But recently, and this year in particular, grid reliability has become a focus of national concern following a narrowly avoided, potentially widespread grid outage in the Eastern US last winter. A recent report from the FERC and the nation's grid reliability regulator, NERC, warns that similar outages are increasingly likely this coming winter. At the root of reliability concerns is the energy transition itself, in which fossil fuel powerplants, and coal plants in particular, are rapidly retiring and not being quickly replaced with clean sources of power. Also concerning has been the performance of natural gas-fired generators, a large number of which have failed to operate in severe weather conditions. While these resources can provide reliable electricity supply, they won't do so by simple chance. Detailed and deliberate grid planning, and coordination between the policymakers who set clean energy goals and the grid operators who are responsible for reliability, is essential if future reliability is to be ensured. On the podcast Kelli Joseph, a senior fellow with the KIeinman Center for Energy Policy, explores this disconnect between electricity policy and reliability. She also discusses the nation's looming challenges to grid reliability and resilience, and how coordination between policymakers and the operators of the electric grid might be achieved. Kelli Joseph is a senior fellow with the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, and a senior fellow in electricity market design and clean energy transition with the World Resources Institute.

Why do we say, "there's no place like home"? This iconic phrase appears in "The Wizard of Oz" to remind us of the human need for familiarity, belonging and protection. Over the past centuries, our homes have followed a Darwinian process of evolution by natural selection of efficiency. From caves to skyscrapers, they've protected us from wild animals, natural disasters, and the changing climate. Current estimates put the total number of houses at around 2 billion and by 2050, we will need to house around 10 billion people, all looking for familiarity, belonging, comfort and security. So, in this latest episode of 2050 Investors, we go house hunting with Kokou Agbo-Bloua and take a deep dive into the past, present, and future of housing. How can we create sustainable homes for all, and will we adapt in time in the face of the big bad wolf of climate change? We start off this episode with a cautionary tale of "The Three Little Pigs"

Iain has spent decades honing his communication skills, including a 15-year partnership with the BBC, but his thinking around communication continues to evolve. We talked to him about how he arrived at an approach of seeking to understand what people want to know, ultimately summed up by the question ‘how can we help?'. Importantly, he recently published a paper , Three Horizons for Future Geoscience, that uses the dialogic tool of the three horizons as a framework for thinking about systemic change and what pathways we can use to move away from the ‘business as usual' approach. The paper evaluates the current state of geoscience, particularly in advanced economies, and poses one narrative that can be used to reimagine the global geoscientific mission. There aren't easy answers, but there are ways in which we can build dialogue and seek solutions together. Dialogue and asking the question ‘how can we help you?' was fundamental to Kate Moore's team on the large EU Horizon 2020 project, IMPaCT. Kathryn Moore, Senior Lecturer in Critical and Green Technology Metals, Cambourne School of Mines, was part of the team that worked with Mineco, a small mining company operating in Bosnia. Success in the project required multidisciplinary dialogue, across all technical disciplines and with the local community. One of their big challenges was also to create enduring and effective public outreach. Through both creative thinking and a series of fortuitous and challenging events, the final product was a thoughtful and provocative book entitled ‘Of Earth, For Earth.' The book was published by the University of Exeter and is available from a variety of sources.Our theme music is Confluence by Eastwinds.

The company is establishing the world's first independent and sustainable rare earths processing hub at the Saltend Chemicals Park in Humber Freeport, UK. Pensana has successfully secured financing for its Longonjo rare earth mine in Angola, with $200 million in debt from ABSA Bank and $80 million in equity from the Angolan Sovereign Wealth Fund and another undisclosed investor. The company plans to start construction on the Longonjo mine in the first quarter of next year and aims to be in production by the end of 2025 or early 2026. BEST MOMENTS "We've announced today our financing of Longonjo which is the big mine and then some indication of the framework of the financing for our SALTM project." "The challenge for us was we were trying to raise 550 million US dollars to build a mine in Angola and a rare earth processing facility... So we've separated the two projects." "We're very fortunate that FSDA has provided us with some initial $15 million loan against the $80 million of equity they're looking to put in." "We'll be building the world's largest undeveloped rare earth mine in Angola... So it may well be that we actually have two financings done and two projects under construction."

Nigeria's Energy Transition Plan with a 2060 target could be really challenged by the need for a clear development policy approach. Early distinct gaps noticeable in the NETP programme include a lack of holistic legal framework; no incentives for transition to clean energy; absence of disincentives for the use of dirty energy; and centralisation of energy provision in Nigeria, according to a report by the Nigerian Economic Summit Group. The federal government, though, had only this year enacted the energy decentralisation law. If properly administered, Nigeria stands to gain from the energy transition, which will offer an excellent opportunity to address its energy poverty by leveraging abundant renewable energy sources. However in the short to medium term, the country will lose significant revenues because of its over-dependence on fossil fuels. However, the NETP projects 340,000 jobs to be created in 2030 and 840,000 by 2060This show is part of the Spreaker Prime Network, if you are interested in advertising on this podcast, contact us at https://www.spreaker.com/show/4581134/advertisement

In this episode of Energy Transition Talk, Justine speaks with Professor Jacobs, an energy law professor at Berkeley Law, about all things energy law – what it is and why it matters. Professor Jacobs walks us through some of the most important energy laws that affect our daily lives, from the Inflation Reduction Act at the national level to the myriad of laws California, as the nation's leader in energy legislation, is implementing to electrify buildings and transportation, clean up our electricity grid, and reduce energy demand. Professor Jacobs also explains the hurdles to building clean energy infrastructure, the need to consider the community in permitting decisions, and the role we can each play in shaping energy regulations and policies. Justine then chats with Christen Richardson, a law student at USC Gould, about her experience working on renewable energy at a law firm and the state of the energy industry as seen through the lens of a law firm. Christen shares her thoughts on the role of energy law in the energy transition, the challenges and opportunities, and what excites her about the energy transition. 1:36 Interview with Professor Jacobs 46:00 Interview with Christen Richardson 1:04:35 Concluding Remarks We hope you enjoy these conversations!

The Dark Cloud: The hidden costs of a digital world with Guillaume PitronWhat is the energetic consequence of a simple ‘like' on social media? Or a zoom call? Modern technology is underpinned by a very real material and energetic infrastructure that is putting immense strain on energy production and the world's natural resources. 5G and AI have supercharged this consumption. Yet, technology companies have been successful in creating a “dematerialized” perception. The energy transition and sustainability emphasis has focused largely on the energy & commodities world while tech is seen by many as clean and green. It is not. This is the story our guest, investigative journalist and author, Guillaume Pitron has told in his book “The Dark Cloud” published in English this year by Scribe.

Oil and gas majors have long stated their intention to diversify away from fossil fuels and move toward clean energy production. However, in the last few years, many have wound back these plans, shooting for less ambitious targets or returning to their traditional business models. Against this backdrop, can climate-conscious investors hold major fossil-fuel companies to account? On today's show, BNEF Sustainable Finance analyst Ryan Loughead hosts a conversation on oil and gas investment with panelists Annika Brouwer, Sustainability Specialist at Ninety One Asset Management; Ronan Hodge, Technical Lead from the Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ); Thina Saltvedt, Chief Analyst in Sustainable Finance at Nordea Bank; and Peter Taylor, Corporate Engagement Programme Director for the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC). Together they discuss the different approaches of asset managers who keep oil and gas investments on their books, the challenges around divesting from fossil-fuel holdings, and the varying strategies of oil and gas majors themselves.

Ahoy! With Christiana at the helm this week we're raising our anchor and charting a course into the fascinating and complex world of greening shipping. The shipping industry can feel removed from our daily lives. With images of huge cargo ships criss-crossing the oceans, distant foreign ports and international regulatory bodies with unfamiliar acronyms like the IMO or the GMF, you might even ask yourself: why should I care? We'll hear how 90% of what we consume, wear and use in our homes comes to us via a ship. And how the predominant use of dirty fossil fuels means that the shipping industry currently contributes around 3% of the world's global CO2 - that's the same as the whole of Germany or Japan's emissions. But not any more! Christiana and her crew of shipping experts take you on a journey to explore how the shipping industry is at the forefront of an exciting transition to Net Zero, and will explain how greening the maritime sector could help us address the climate emergency. Christiana has been a long and passionate advocate for reform in the shipping industry. With the help of guests such as AP Moller-Maersk's Senior Vice President, Morten Christiansen; Alejandra Teran from Costa Rica's Sailcargo; Eric Leveridge, Campaign Lead at Ship it Zero; Ambassador Albon Ishoda, Royal Marshall Islands Presidential Special Envoy for Maritime Decarbonisation, Dr Lucy Gilliam, Seas at Risk, Bo Cerup-Simonsen, CEO, MaerskMcKinney Moller Centre, Cleo Bierneza, Third Officer at Swire Shipping and many more, this deep dive episode will hope to leave no doubt in our listeners' minds as to why shipping's path to Net Zero is integral to our current and future life on the planet. How these ships are fuelled now and in the future, why the recent International Maritime Organisation decision was history in the making, how the people working on these ships are treated to ensure a just transition as well as the role that we, the consumers, can play, are all questions that Christiana and her guests tackle during this special episode.
