Europe is getting some much-needed relief in the midst of its energy crisis. Although energy prices are still high, a warm October and a surge in liquified gas imports brought spot prices down from record levels and gas storage to near full capacity. A worst-case supply crisis has been averted — for now. But tensions are still high. Fears over Russian sabotage of North Sea pipelines are causing concerns about cuts to remaining gas supplies. Impending winter weather and a coming embargo on Russian oil are adding uncertainty to an already volatile market. European households and businesses will still see prices for natural gas and electricity well above average.  Has Europe seen the worst of its energy crisis? What are the options for EU leaders to manage the energy crisis during the frigid winter months? How will further measures to pressure Russia economically affect the European economy? This week host Jason Bordoff talks with Anne-Sophie Corbeau and Tatiana Mitrova about the winter outlook and the options for managing the energy supply. This conversation was recorded on October 14, 2022.  Anne-Sophie is a global research scholar at the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. Tatiana is a research fellow at the Center on Global Energy Policy.

I greet you in Jesus' precious name! It is Tuesday morning, the 18th of October 2022, and this is your friend, Angus Buchan, with a thought for today.“O Lord God of hosts,Who is mighty like You, O Lord?Your faithfulness also surrounds You.”Psalm 89:8“And they were afraid, and marvelled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” Luke 8:25What a mighty God, you and I serve and not only a mighty God but a faithful God. You know, I am a farmer, I am not very comfortable in the big seas, not at all. I like my feet on terra firm, on the ground, but I love to watch the sea and I have got the sea in my blood. My family originated from the North East of Scotland. They were fishermen. There is a place there called, Buchan, my surname, and there is a beautiful statue of a lady, a wife and her children, looking out to the North Sea, the merciless, freezing cold North Sea, where the menfolk have gone out to fish for food for their income. Many a time, those ships do not come back. They get swallowed up in the storms in the sea. The ocean is something that can be terrifying, and yet the Lord Jesus Christ stood up out of the boat on the Sea of Galilee, that beautiful lake, where a storm can start in a matter of moments. He put His hand out and the seas and winds were calm. We have nothing to fear if we put our trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. He says, “I will never leave you and I will never forsake you.”Put your hand in the hand of the Man who can still the seas and calm the storms and He will see you safely home.Jesus bless you and have a wonderful day.Goodbye.

84. Floating Offshore Wind

Redefining Energy

Play Episode Listen Later Oct 15, 2022 30:11


Offshore Wind was one of the great development successes of the past decade, growing in 10 years from a few pilot projects to a real industry. Two zones have been at the fore front: the North Sea (with 30GW as of 2021) and China (with +20GW). Better tech, burgeoning supply chain and infrastructure, and a dramatic fall in cost have created tailwinds for this industry.Offshore Wind is now a technology considered all around the world. However, there is a little problem: the fixed bottom Offshore Industry has benefited from a unique feature of the North Sea, i.e. shallow waters (less than 70m). And if you find great wind resources offshore in a lot of places, the seabed is generally much deeper, in fact too deep for fixed bottom.Hence, some of the North Sea pioneers have been trying to crack the code of floating offshore wind. A milestone was hit when, in March 2022, Scotland awarded 15GW of seabed for floating. No more experimentation, the race is on.To talk about this new technology, its promises as well as its challenges, we have invited Stephen Bull, EVP Renewables at Aker Solutions, the Norwegian Engineering giant. Within its offshore wind division, Aker has developed a specific competence relating to foundations, transmission, marine operations, dynamic cable, mooring systems, and subsea power solutions.Stephen Bull is also Chair of Renewable UK and one the founding father of the offshore wind industry in the UK when he was at Equinor leading the development of Dogger Bank, the largest offshore wind park in the world.With plans to multiply offshore wind by a factor 10 in the coming decades, and floating being a key technology, Gerard and Laurent are having a great conversation on how to unlock the floating potential, and also discover how “concrete is the unsung hero of floating OSW”.This episode is produced in partnership with WindEuropehttps://windeurope.org/We thank our partner Aquila Capitalhttps://www.aquila-capital.de/en/

Kevin Whelan runs a business called Wealth Builders. Today he shares ways to create recurring income inside and outside any business. We're heading towards troubled times, so advice from one of the leading experts is very timely. Tune into this week's episode of The Next 100 Days and learn from Kevin Whelan. Kevin Whelan's Story Sadly, Kevin Whelan's father died at the young age of 46. Aged 25, Kevin was an economist. He didn't much care for the job. Kevin realised that his father's agency business, finding people to work on North Sea rigs, meant that he had a streak of entrepreneurialism like his father. Just like our Kevin, Kevin Whelan was also from Northumberland AND a Newcastle United fan. When his father died, the family went backwards. At 28, he decided he would not trade his time for money ever again. It was his realisation moment. http://thenext100days.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/Kevin-Whelan-Realisation.mp4 [SHOCKER]   95% of the population do not become financially independent It's worse for business owners.

Note to listeners: this episode was prerecorded in August 2022. 2022: a year of extremes. During the 40 degree summer heat, roads melted and railway lines buckled. The London Fire Brigade had its busiest day since the Blitz as record temperatures led to hundreds of fires across the city. When it finally rained a month later, the Met Office warned of flood risk. But after a dangerously hot summer, we're now worrying about whether we can afford our energy bills during a long, cold winter. This was the year that the climate crisis collided with the scandalously high cost of living. But how are the two related? Why are fossil fuel companies making bumper profits while the rest of us are worried about paying our bills? And can we stay warm while making sure oil and gas stay safely under the North Sea?

In this role, Rees-Mogg will have to tackle these issues while being responsible for the UK's legally binding target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. It is a goal he has previously described as ‘a long way off'.

As consumers and businesses real from the latest energy price rises where are not only the Tories but also the Labour opposition on tackling the root causes of the crisis?Liz Truss, apparently waiting for the full briefing available only to a "functioning government", has pledged to tear up any semblance of a green energy policy to expand North Sea oil and gas exploration and restart fracking. Meanwhile Sir Keir Starmer, despite the growing popularity of renationalising public utilities, has abandoned his commitment to public ownership.Labour, before Starmer's team rolled back on it and after being blasted by Welsh Labour, which is currently in coalition with Plaid Cymru, had signaled a potential change to Labour's rule book barring any deals with pro-independence parties such as the SNP. Was this a move which would, given Labour's willingness to do such deals with the Tories in Scottish local government, be an electoral disaster in Scotland at the next General Election?Meanwhile Stephen Noon, chief strategist of the 2014 Yes campaign, urged Nicola Sturgeon to halt plans to use that election as a proxy independence referendum and enter a conversation to build a better Scotland within the UK. We ask just how practical this is given the embedded unionism of both major parties and the lack of any meaningful progress on enhanced devolution.Emily Maitlis was excoriating in her condemnation of direct Conservative Party interference in BBC reporting in her MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh TV Festival. We reflect on this, with specific insights from Lesley on her time with the BBC, and Pat looks back at Maitlis's involvement in the demonisation of Jeremy Corbyn. Finally, delegates head to the SNP annual conference in Aberdeen this October and hopefully they will have a chance to vote on a transformational motion to raise Scotland's school starting age to six.

In the winter of 2021, an unusually powerful cyclone called Storm Arwen wreaked havoc on the United Kingdom, Ireland, and France. In Scotland alone, on land, it was estimated that over 8 million trees were damaged or affected by the storm. The damage was no less under the water. Andrew Jack, a fisherman that works in the Moray Firth of the North Sea, lost almost 600 lobster traps in the angry sea. After contacting Duncan Simpson of UK Ghost Diving, the two collaborated (with their teams) on the retrieval of this lost gear that, at first, seemed like it couldn't be done.

The human race is on a 10,000 year urban adventure. Our ancestors wandered the planet or lived scattered in villages, yet by the end of this century almost all of us will live in cities. But that journey has not been a smooth one and urban civilizations have risen and fallen many times in history. The ruins of many of them still enchant us. The Life and Death of Ancient Cities: A Natural History (Oxford University Press, 2020) by Dr. Greg Woolf tells the story of the rise and fall of ancient cities from the end of the Bronze Age to the beginning of the Middle Ages. It is a tale of war and politics, pestilence and famine, triumph and tragedy, by turns both fabulous and squalid. Its focus is on the ancient Mediterranean: Greeks and Romans at the centre, but Phoenicians and Etruscans, Persians, Gauls, and Egyptians all play a part. The story begins with the Greek discovery of much more ancient urban civilizations in Egypt and the Near East, and charts the gradual spread of urbanism to the Atlantic and then the North Sea in the centuries that followed. The ancient Mediterranean, where our story begins, was a harsh environment for urbanism. So how were cities first created, and then sustained for so long, in these apparently unpromising surroundings? How did they feed themselves, where did they find water and building materials, and what did they do with their waste and their dead? Why, in the end, did their rulers give up on them? And what it was like to inhabit urban worlds so unlike our own - cities plunged into darkness every night, cities dominated by the temples of the gods, cities of farmers, cities of slaves, cities of soldiers. Ultimately, the chief characters in the story are the cities themselves. Athens and Sparta, Persepolis and Carthage, Rome and Alexandria: cities that formed great families. Their story encompasses the history of the generations of people who built and inhabited them, whose short lives left behind monuments that have inspired city builders ever since - and whose ruins stand as stark reminders to the 21st century of the perils as well as the potential rewards of an urban existence. This interview was conducted by Dr. Miranda Melcher whose doctoral work focused on post-conflict military integration, understanding treaty negotiation and implementation in civil war contexts, with qualitative analysis of the Angolan and Mozambican civil wars.
