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.

The end of Atlanticism: has Trump killed the ideology that won the cold war? | News | The Guardian
"special relationship" - The foreign policy establishment has been lamenting its death for half a century. But Atlanticism has long been a convenient myth // Atlanticism has never had a very stable meaning. For one thing, the US and Europe have not always considered each other natural political partners. For most of American history, there hasn’t even been a unified “Europe” to partner with. [...] Advertisement

In 1973, Henry Kissinger, himself a transatlantic refugee, launched a “Year of Europe” tour to try to save the relationship in the name of containment, preventing the further growth of the Soviet Union. Speaking as Nixon’s national security adviser, he asked whether the Atlantic community could thrive as the memory of the second world war began to fade. As the “rigid divisions of the past two decades diminish, new assertions of national identity and national rivalry emerge”. He argued that Americans should continue to support European unity. “If we permit the Atlantic partnership to atrophy … we shall miss our historic opportunity for even greater achievement.”

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.

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.

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.

UN asks UK to suspend work on Hinkley Point | UK news | The Guardian
The UNECE has now gone a step further and said the UK should consider refraining from further works on the site of the new reactors.

The body said the government should wait until it has heard back from countries including Germany, Norway and the Netherlands on whether it would be helpful for them to be formally notified under a treaty on transboundary environmental impacts.

The UN request is an embarrassment for the government, which has faced several delays over the UK’s first atomic power station for a generation. But it is unlikely to derail the earthworks and building of a jetty at Hinkley, which is Europe’s biggest construction site.

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.

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".

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

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.

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

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.

Hawking: Humans at risk of lethal 'own goal' - BBC News
Humanity is at risk from a series of dangers of our own making, according to Prof Stephen Hawking. Nuclear war, global warming and genetically-engineered viruses are among the scenarios which he singles out. And he says that further progress in science and technology will create "new ways things can go wrong". Prof Hawking is giving this year's BBC Reith Lectures, which explore research into black holes, and his warning came in answer to audience questions. He says that assuming humanity eventually establishes colonies on other worlds, it will be able to survive. "Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or ten thousand years. [...] But he also said that future generations of researchers should be aware of how scientific and technological progress is changing the world, and to help the wider public understand it. //&! bit.ly/1RwS7yA

German plasma success raises nuclear fusion hopes - BBC News
A German nuclear fusion experiment has produced a special super-hot gas which scientists hope will eventually lead to clean, cheap energy. [...] Physicists are in a worldwide race to create stable fusion devices that could not only mimic the Sun but release abundant energy, without the volumes of toxic waste generated by nuclear fission - the splitting of the atom. [...] The project began nine years ago and has cost 1bn euros (£720m; $1.1bn) so far. The EU's main nuclear fusion project is called Iter, at Cadarache, in the south of France. But it will not be fired up until the 2020s. It is controversial, having already cost more than €10bn. [...] Scientists have been working on nuclear fusion for more than 50 years but the extreme temperatures involved and the difficulty of controlling plasmas mean progress is slow.

Atomausstieg und Finanzierung: Beschwichtigen und bezichtigen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Gut 38 Milliarden Euro haben E.on , RWE , EnBW und Vattenfall dafür zurückgelegt. Doch die Milliarden liegen nicht auf irgendwelchen Konten, sondern müssen teils von den Kraftwerken der Konzerne noch erwirtschaftet werden. Die aber verkaufen aufgrund des Booms der erneuerbaren Energien immer weniger Strom zu immer schlechteren Preisen. Obendrein drohen die Kosten für den Atomausstieg immer weiter zu steigen, weil die Suche nach einem Endlager für die strahlenden Überreste des Nuklearzeitalters komplizierter und langwieriger ist als geplant. Die Regierung sorgt sich, dass die Rückstellungen nicht reichen und die Steuerzahler am Ende auf Milliardenkosten sitzen bleiben - obwohl die Energieriesen mit den AKW zuvor gewaltige Gewinne gemacht haben.

Hinkley Point nuclear agreement reached - BBC News
More than £30bn worth of deals between the UK and China are expected to be struck during the four-day visit. [...] 'Security concerns' The Hinkley Point project has come under fire over its cost and the delays to investment decisions and the timetable for building. The government has also been criticised for guaranteeing a price of £92.50 per megawatt hour of electricity - more than twice the current cost - for the electricity Hinkley produces. [<< death knell 4 UK consumer & heavy industry! In 10 years as other countries invested in renewables heavily, energy prices will be much higher in UK, a country which did not invest heavily in the Smart Grid & renewables when it was cheap to borrow to fund private public partnerships; 5-10 year mega projects. Bc nasty party is mercenary, not visionary. &! china is deep in renewables. why not renewables!? build smart grid] The Treasury hopes that within 10 years China will be UK second biggest trading partner. //&!

With Hinkley Point, squandermania has reached dangerous new heights | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ cutting renewables, sure. how about 24bn for renewables and SmartGrid 10 years. Duh. And no energy price tariff guarantees needed. ] The only two versions of the EDF pressurised water reactor under construction, in Finland and France, are way behind schedule with doubled budgets. For £24bn you can read anything you like. It is the auto-da-fé of Treasury control. The person who should be laughing is Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn. Hinkley Point competes with HS2 and possibly a new Heathrow runway for the title of “world’s stupidest megaproject”. [...] When Centrica, the last British investor, pulled out of Hinkley in 2013, it did so because not a single adviser thought it a sensible bet.

Leslie Gelb, wrote Pentagon Papers.

TODAY! National interests are only expressed in economic terms with trade embargoes, tariffs, trade deals and protectionism. Only little military skirmishes here and there and when, the nation tries to hide them from the publics eye (through rouge nations for hire army/special forces, a nations secret services supplying the underground arms trade that doesn't show up on its balance sheet or one of their nations manufacturers.

Sarah Montague speaks to Dr Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has worked in the State Department and advised US presidents, and he now believes we are witnessing the end of one era of world history and the dawn of another. A new 'era of disorder' - more chaotic and more dangerous than any time in a generation. He says American foreign policy is partly to blame and US authority has been diminished.

BBC News - UK's oil, coal and gas 'gone in five years'
"Britain has just 5.2 years of oil." Aberdeen companies (whole region) got 2 pivot 2 off-shore windfarm tech and maintenance and tidal wave technology [clean tech - clean energy technology]. PLUS there is the decommissioning business, decommissioning of oil and gas platforms. Plus the option of building/solidifying itself as knowledge and skill hub for global oil and gas business - the mobile creative / skill-based worker. Otherwise it could turn sour quiet quickly like the areas where the coal mines and other post-heavy industry locations in the UK were - them being still smudge of economic inactivity on UK's economic landscape and economic history. "Ministers are hoping that enough shale gas - extracted by fracking - will be obtained to make a difference, the BBC's environment analyst Roger Harrabin says." The gas amount from fracking in UK is negligible, not comparable to USA even if accounted 4 landmass size & energy usage/capita. + http://econ.st/1n8oyAZ http://econ.st/1gdiesV

Mapping The Scenarios For The Japanese Economy | zero hedge
"Nuclear experts can't agree what the worst-case scenario for Japan's nuclear crisis might be, so predicting the impact of the disaster on the world's third-largest economy with any accuracy is an impossible task. But even if a catastrophic nuclear meltdown is averted, a drawn-out battle to stabilise the earthquake-crippled Fukushima plant poses a serious risk to an economy already burdened with huge public debt, an ageing population and a big bill to rebuild from a quake and tsunami disaster that caused damages possibly topping $300 billion. "What is the worst-case scenario? Most people think it's a mushroom cloud. But the worst-case scenario is that this drags on, not one month or two months or six months, but for two years, or indefinitely," said Jesper Koll, director of equity research at JPMorgan Securities in Tokyo.

Tsunami Wall of Water Risk Known to Engineers, Regulators - Bloomberg
Japan’s nuclear regulators and the operator of the crippled Fukushima reactors were warned that a tsunami could overwhelm the plant’s defenses and failed to recognize the threat.
The Trade Ministry dismissed evidence two years ago from geologists that the power station’s stretch of coast was overdue for a giant wave, minutes from a government committee show. Tokyo Electric Power Co. engineers also didn’t heed lessons from the 2004 tsunami off Indonesia that swamped a reactor 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles) away in India, even as they advised the nuclear industry on coping with the dangers.

Japan Crisis Isn't Yet Grasped by the Markets - NYTimes.com
Such “what if” scripts are the stuff of modern Wall Street. Everyone runs them. Entire schools of financial analysis are devoted to examining historical market patterns in the belief that those patterns can predict the future.
Such analysis, of course, depends on — and perhaps even encourages — our belief that tomorrow will be much like today. And all that despite the fine-print caveat on your 401(k) statement that reads, “Past performance is no guarantee of future success.”

 we rely on history for guidance - and that is a fallacy 

Big economic questions remain unanswered.

Schwarz-gelbes Konzept: Merkels Masterplan fr die Energiewende - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Wirtschaft
Auf den restlichen Seiten präsentiert die Bundesregierung Ideen und Konzepte dafür, wie in Nord- und Ostsee riesige Windparks entstehen sollen, welche Rolle Biomasse künftig bei Strom- und Wärmeerzeugung spielen soll, wie Bürger dazu bewegt werden können, ihre Häuser besser zu dämmen, wie sich die Industrieproduktion energieeffizienter gestalten lässt, mit welchen Privilegien der Kauf von Elektroautos reizvoll wird und wie der Ausbau eines europäischen Superstromnetzes vorangetrieben werden kann.

9 Bilder Grafiken: Energiegutachten für die Regierung

Manche Aspekte, die die Regierung anspricht, sind noch sehr vage formuliert, bloße Absichtserklärungen. Insgesamt 23-mal versprechen die Verfasser etwas zu prüfen, meist eine alte Regelung oder den Entwurf einer neuen. In anderen Bereichen - wie Elektroautos und schlauen Stromnetzen - hat Schwarz-Gelb ohnehin schon Förderprojekte gestartet, hier sind die Ausführungen konkreter.
