Windfarm industry urges UK to lift onshore subsidies ban | Environment | The Guardian
Ministers have been urged to drop their block on subsidies for onshore windfarms, as industry figures showed that nearly 800 renewable projects are ready to plug much of the power gap left by the abandonment of the Wylfa nuclear project.

Hitachi dropped plans for the nuclear plant in Wales this week, raising questions over what would replace it and leading the business secretary, Greg Clark, to admit that renewable energy sources are more competitively priced than nuclear.

China's long game to dominate nuclear power relies on the UK | Environment | The Guardian
While Germany and other western countries have turned their backs on nuclear, the UK is strongly committed to new nuclear to meet its carbon goals and this means, despite security concerns, the government needs Chinese involvement. [...] But the company is open about the bigger prize – the UK as a springboard for exporting Chinese nuclear technology to other countries.

The Guardian view on tidal energy: cost is not the whole story | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
Yet the government is planning more nuclear power stations, including one in Wales. Different rules seem to apply for different technologies. It looks like a Tory government in Westminster snubbed Welsh Labour’s pet project.

UK nuclear plans 'risk collapse if Hitachi talks fail' | Environment | The Guardian
UK industrial and economic policy - subsidies for selected few to profit. fleecing the tax payer. -
Paul Dorfman at the Energy Institute at University College London said: “This would mean the hardworking UK taxpayer and energy consumer, who are labouring under ramping austerity, are being asked to stump up for an extraordinarily expensive nuclear plant just at the time that renewable costs are plummeting.”

“In 2015 the government started hacking and slashing at all manner of green policies. This has stopped, and that’s very welcome,” he said.

Richard Black, the director of the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit thinktank, echoed that view. He said the strategy showed a “sea change” in “top-line thinking about the low carbon economy”, with Theresa May’s government seeing it as an opportunity rather than a cost as it was viewed under David Cameron.

Electricity consumers 'to fund nuclear weapons through Hinkley Point C' | UK news | The Guardian
Last June, MPs passed a motion in favour of replacing four submarines carrying Trident missiles at a cost of £40bn.

“What our research suggests is that British low-carbon energy strategies are more expensive than they need to be, in order to maintain UK military nuclear infrastructures,” said Stirling.

UK nuclear plans could be hit by Westinghouse financial crisis | Business | The Guardian
[ putting all eggs in one basket! ] A financial crisis at a major nuclear energy business is threatening to deal a blow to the UK’s atomic energy programme.

Toshiba’s US nuclear subsidiary Westinghouse Electric is believed to be on the brink of filing in the US for bankruptcy protection from creditors. A UK expert said the collapse would leave a considerable hole in Britain’s new nuclear ambitions as Toshiba is a key player behind plans for a new power station at Moorside in Cumbria.

UK nuclear power stations 'could be forced to close' after Brexit | Business | The Guardian
Asked by the chair of the Commons business, energy and industrial strategy select committee if that would see reactors switching off, he said: “Ultimately, when their fuels runs out, yes.” Cowen said that in his view there was no legal requirement for the UK to leave Euratom because of Brexit: “It’s a political issue, not a legal issue.”

The UK nuclear industry would be crippled if new nuclear cooperation deals are not agreed within two years, a former government adviser told the committee.

Risk of Christmas electricity blackouts next year, warn MPs | Business | The Guardian
Findings within the report claim that in recent winters the country’s spare electricity margin has fallen from around 17% during the winter of 2011-12 to around 1% this winter.

The MPs say “there is a sustained danger of intermittent blackouts for the foreseeable future”, and that this is down to “dwindling base capacity and freak weather events”.

In order to plug the capacity gap, household bills by 2020 could increase by as much as £30 a year – nearly double government estimates.

Energy subsidies should focus on storage and cutting demand, MPs say - BBC News
The committee said the government should redesign the capacity market to encourage energy storage, which ranges from lithium batteries to pumping water uphill and releasing it through turbines when power is needed.
This technology could save billions of pounds for consumers, it said.
Ministers should also consider a subsidy system to speed up the deployment of storage, given its importance for storing and using power from renewable energy to make the most of the clean technology.

Climate change: Advisers warn of climate change domino effect
In a 2,000-page report, the Climate Change Committee says flooding will destroy bridges - wrecking electricity, gas and IT connections carried on them.
The committee also warns that poor farming means the most fertile soils will be badly degraded by mid-century.
And it says heat-related deaths among the elderly will triple by the 2050s as summer temperatures spiral.
The projections are based on the supposition that governments keep promises made at the Paris climate conference to cut emissions - a pledge that is in doubt.
The committee says if emissions are allowed to spiral, London summer temperatures could hit 48C (118F) in an extreme scenario, although the advisers say they don't expect that to happen.
The report from 80 authors is the most comprehensive yet on the potential impact of climate change on the UK.

'Northern powerhouse' depends on productivity not rail links: thinktank | Business | The Guardian
In this post-referendum vacuum, Carney alone can't save the UK economy - Getting productivity going again will require more investment in innovation and our universities. It means more help for businesses that want to update their production lines, overhaul their IT systems or retrain their staff. Productivity will only improve if the UK addresses its skills shortages with sensible immigration policies and with better training. In an age of economic insecurity, training is key if the march of the robots is not to further exacerbate inequality. Similarly, the UK must get serious about moving to an apprenticeship system that has parity of esteem. - http://bit.ly/29cCmtq

CURRENT ACCOUNT DEFICIT ON THE BALANCE OF PAYMENTS: THE MOST DAMNING STATISTIC!
If you want to understand how an economy is performing and how sustainable its economic growth then look at the current account balance. Officially it is often ignored and there are attempts to play down its significance. After all it is always only just a few years away from an election so the very short term is considered much more important than the long term strength and economic health of the economy. Dire straits is not an underestimate of the current damaged state of the UK economy and indeed many other western economies.

Climate change deal: 'Zero carbon' laws promised by government - BBC News
Under current law, emissions must be cut by 80% by 2050 - but ministers have said this does not go far enough. Following the climate deal in Paris, it is clear the UK must not increase CO2 at all because the warming threat is so severe, they added. No details of the law change have been given - and critics said the UK was failing to meet even current targets. [...] However, many in the energy sector will be baffled by what they see as a schizophrenic attitude to climate change from the government. While pledging their allegiance to very demanding CO2 cuts, ministers have made a slew of policy changes that are predicted to increase emissions. [...] government has failed to secure any new nuclear stations, scrapped a competition for carbon capture and threatened cuts in the offshore wind budget unless costs radically fall.

Hinkley: Why do we need the new nuclear power station? - BBC News
[ strike price ] Why is a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point running years behind schedule and the cause of seemingly endless debate? Here are some answers to the questions surrounding the world's most expensive power project. [ prob w renewables is energy storage systems and capacity! ] [...] However, the UK needs to build more power stations if it is to meet growing demand for electricity and the government wants to ensure consumers foot the bill no matter where the electricity comes from.

EDF finance chief quits ahead of Hinkley Point decision - BBC News
[ 18bn, world most expensive, and internal board power & power politics, get him off, and you are able to go ahead // guaranteed strike price ] Thomas Piquemal stepped down because he feared the project could jeopardise EDF's financial position, according to reports. EDF shares opened 8.2% lower on Monday. Last month, Chris Bakken, the director of the project that could produce 7% of UK electricity by 2025, said he was leaving to pursue other opportunities. Jean-Bernard Levy, chairman and chief executive of EDF, said Mr Piquemal told him of the decision to leave last week and that he regretted the "haste" of Mr Piquemal's departure. The company's board is expected to finalise in April how it will fund the project after postponing the decision a number of times. Mr Levy said the board was studying the investment in Hinkley Point to ascertain the best way to finance the power plant. He added that EDF aimed to announce a final investment decision "soon".

'Store more energy in water', says Scottish Power - BBC News
Scottish Power is planning to double the size of its hydro-electric power plant which creates and stores energy. It says the UK will need much more energy storage capacity as renewables increase on the National Grid. It says it can add 400 megawatts (MW) of on-demand electricity by building a new dam in front of the existing dam. But it says the £300-£400m cost is prohibitive unless it can get a guaranteed floor price for its use from the government. In return, Scottish Power says it will accept a cap on profits.

Britain heading for power cuts next winter, say 60 local authorities | Business | The Guardian
bit.ly/1TOwjhT &! A group representing 60 local authorities has warned that recent closures of large power stations have left Britain heading for power cuts next winter, despite assurances to the contrary from the government. [...] National Grid needed to act immediately to fill the supply gap by sending out new contracts for at least 2,500 megawatts (MW) of additional generating capacity – enough to power 2.5m homes. The alliance wants ministers to reconsider the level of carbon taxes, saying this is one of the key reasons why so many coal-fired power stations are being shut down early. [...] In recent years, coal, nuclear and gas-fired plants have been shut because of low prices, high operating costs or old age. Windfarms have been erected and new nuclear facilities promised but energy companies say gas plants cannot be built without higher subsidies. //&! bit.ly/1MpvhlE - UK doesn not meet 15% of EU renewables target, but cuts subsidies for renewables, duh! &! bit.ly/1sL8Kty

Weltwirtschaft: Ökonomen halten Ende des Wachstums für unvermeidlich - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Weltwirtschaft: Ökonomen halten Ende des Wachstums für unvermeidlich [...] Ein Beispiel: Wenn das Bruttosozialprodukt eines Landes 10 Milliarden Euro beträgt und um eine Milliarde Euro wächst, dann entspricht das einer Steigerung von zehn Prozent. Wenn das BIP aber 1000 Milliarden Euro beträgt, dann müsste die Wirtschaft schon um 100 Milliarden Euro wachsen, um ein Wachstum von zehn Prozent zu schaffen. Wächst das BIP wie vorher um eine Milliarde Euro, entspricht das nur noch einer Steigerung von 0,1 Prozent. Die Wirtschaft wäre dann sozusagen ausgewachsen. Die alten Zeiten kehren nicht mehr zurück [...] Sollten die Ökonomen recht haben, hätte das für Staat und Sozialsysteme einschneidende Folgen: Die Planung von Bundeshaushalt oder Rentenkasse geht von einem Wachstum irgendwo zwischen ein und zwei Prozent pro Jahr aus.

George Osborne warns of further spending cuts in Budget - BBC News
[ LOL! ] But recent figures showing the UK economy was smaller than expected meant savings must be found in his Budget statement on 17 March, he said. [...] Mr Osborne said he would rather look for extra cuts now than risk breaking his own manifesto commitment to achieve a surplus in the budget by the end of this Parliament. The chancellor did not completely rule out raising taxes in the event of a further slowdown in growth, but said that now was not the time for "significant" tax hikes. [...] I'm absolutely clear we've got to root our country in the principle that we live within our means and that we have economic security." [...] "whole purpose of our economic plan was to have a budget surplus. [...] we got big challenges at home to make the economy more productive even as more people get work. [ because having part of your budget in the property bubble is so productive ] [...] I will do what is required to keep our country safe and secure." [ NOT CHANGING PLANS ie U-TURN ]

Five issues that will shape the Northern Powerhouse - BBC News
[ white elephant! lol & the double standard of Google paying 2% tax vs small businesses full 18%+ and not getting investment, R&D loans ] Will Hull thrive or suffer if transport is radically improved to the eastern fringe of the Powerhouse? There's no way of telling. Some people think investment in skills, education and training would be a more certain way of improving productivity - and business leaders are keen to ensure that these key elements are not forgotten in the rush for steel and tarmac. I asked former CBI director-general John Cridland, who is now head of Transport for the North, if there was any certainty that spending billions on infrastructure would improve productivity. He agreed there was no proof, but urged people to take a leap of faith - like the Victorian engineers.

Scientists: air pollution led to more than 5.5 million premature deaths in 2013 | Environment | The Guardian
“Air pollution is the fourth-highest risk factor for death globally and by far the leading environmental risk factor for disease,” said Michael Brauer, a researcher from the University of British Columbia. Brauer said air pollution contributed to heart disease, stroke, lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema and acute infections. He and his colleagues compared the problem in Asia to the conditions under centuries of industrial revolution in the US and Europe: massive economic growth smothered by clouds of toxic matter in the air. [... COAL ...] “Even in the most clean scenario in 2030,” Ma said, China’s growing and ageing population will still suffer 990,000 to 1.3 million deaths a year.

Erdgas: So will Europa unabhängig von Putins Russland werden - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Ähnlich frei wie Litauen soll sich bald ganz Europa fühlen. Derzeit sind viele EU-Mitgliedstaaten noch stark von den russischen Lieferungen abhängig. Mit einem Marktanteil von rund 40 Prozent ist Russland noch immer der mit Abstand größte Gaslieferant der EU. Doch nun hat die EU-Kommission nach Informationen von SPIEGEL ONLINE zentrale Infrastrukturprojekte definiert, durch die bald jeder EU-Staat sein Gas aus mehreren Ländern beziehen können soll. [...] Modellrechnungen zeigten, dass die angestrebten Projekte "echte Gassicherheit und Wettbewerb" in den gesamten EU-Markt brächten, heißt es in dem Entwurf aus Brüssel. Die Projekte sollen deshalb über EU-Mittel gefördert werden. Zwischenstaatliche Energieabkommen und selbst Lieferverträge einzelner Unternehmen [ strike price ] will die Kommission künftig vorab prüfen. [...] Nordstream-Pipeline

The lights are going out for solar energy
Back in December, when most people were focussed on Christmas and not renewable subsidies, the government quietly published their decision to cut Feed-in Tariffs for industries such as solar, wind and hydropower by a staggering 65 per cent. Included in the small print was analysis which showed a possible 19,000 job losses, mostly in solar, which would see that industry shrink to under half its size. [...] Instead the government is thinking short-term, and our economy will suffer. For a party that wants people to think of it as economically competent, this is an incredibly bad move.

Hitachi boss issues warning over Wylfa subsidy deal - BBC News
[ giving extortionate (for consumer) strike prices, while cutting renewable feed in tariff 95% and 500m subsidies for Oil/Aberdeen ] The head of the company behind a new £8bn nuclear power station on Anglesey has warned it may walk away from the project if a subsidy deal with the UK government cannot be reached. Hitachi chairman Hiroaki Nakanishi told the Telegraph he voiced concerns about Wylfa Newydd's expected cost to Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond. It followed problems a rival faced for the Hinkley Point plant in Somerset. The UK government said it wants low-cost nuclear power. Hitachi owns Horizon Nuclear Power which is behind the plans to build the new power plant, which could be operational by the early 2020s. Horizon is in talks with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) on issues such as the strike price, which will be key to attracting additional finance.

As a result Tony Cocker, the chief executive of E.On, defended the price cut of 5.1%.

Why is the pound falling so sharply? - BBC News
Weak economic data is casting doubt on the future performance of the UK economy, with inflation persistently well below the Bank of England's 2% target and earnings growth slowing down from a six-year high. Earlier this month, figures for November showed that UK industrial output had suffered its sharpest decline since 2013. Looking further ahead, investors are worried about the outcome of a referendum on the UK's continued membership of the EU. As Andy Scott of foreign exchange services firm HiFX put it: "Concerns over the UK economy and the risk of a Brexit look likely to continue to haunt sterling." Traders are also generally more risk-averse in the light of the global turmoil caused by Chinese market problems and falling oil prices, which makes them reluctant to buck sterling's downward trend.

Linking junior doctors and terror is cheap politics | Barbara Ellen | Opinion | The Guardian
[ Tories, nasty party at it again; spin and positioning - to use something to put someone or something in a bad light. distract. smoking gun and mirrors. avoid. change direction and tone of discussion or debate. ] Now questions are being raised about political interference, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron calling it an attempt to “politicise the Paris terror attack” and the “lowest politics” he’d seen in years. Keogh and the Department of Health say that it was “entirely appropriate” that they communicate with each other and co-ordinate a response. Communication is generally a very good thing, co-ordination, in this case, not so much. Indeed, some might say that this is desperate stuff, an overt attempt to stir up public fear and animosity towards striking medics.
