The Financial Secret Behind Germany’s Green Energy Revolution / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Ellen_Brown

The “Green New Deal” endorsed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D.-N.Y., and more than 40 other House members has been criticized as imposing a too-heavy burden on the rich and upper-middle-class taxpayers who will have to pay for it. However, taxing the rich is not what the Green New Deal resolution proposes. It says funding would come primarily from certain public agencies, including the U.S. Federal Reserve and “a new public bank or system of regional and specialized public banks.”

Funding through the Federal Reserve may be controversial, but establishing a national public infrastructure and development bank should be a no-brainer. The real question is why we don’t already have one, as do China, Germany and other countries that are running circles around us in infrastructure development. Many European, Asian and Latin American countries have their own national development banks, as well as belong to bilateral or multinational development institutions that are jointly owned by multiple governments. Unlike the U.S. Federal Reserve, which considers itself “independent” of government, national development banks are wholly owned by their governments and carry out public development policies.

Looking ahead: Why the Smart Money is Investing in Green Energy / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_Cioffi

Tech industry headlines might have been focused on Apple’s recent milestone, whereby they officially became the first company in history to achieve a $1 trillion market capitalization, but the renewable energy sector had its own cause for celebration, also starting with the letter ‘t’.

The news from Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF), the world’s total capacity for energy production through wind and solar has surpassed 1 terawatt, and we might not have to wait too long before we can get to the next terawatt, if the current pace of progress, uptake, and innovation keeps up into the future. As a matter of fact, the BNEF makes the surprisingly upbeat prediction that by the year 2023, we might see this achieved at only 46% of what the first terawatt cost.

5 Clean Energy Innovations That Could Transform Our World / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

By Zainab Calcuttawala - Innovations in energy storage, smart grid, and electricity generation technologies will affect every part of the source-to-consumer supply chain for powering the planet. Energy storage tech improves the viabilities of wind and solar power – two energy sources that remain cost prohibitive due to expenses related to batteries that would store generated energy. Smart grids will regulate the movement of energy throughout a city or state, insuring the areas from crippling blackouts. Developments in electricity generation make sure we make the most out of fossil fuels and other energy sources to improve efficiency.

Absolution, Deceit and Renewables / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Raul_I_Meijer

It’s been a while since the Automatic Earth featured an article from Energy Matters, the site run by our longtime friend Euan Mearns, Honorary Research Fellow at The University of Aberdeen, and his co-conspirator Roger Andrews, a British engineer/geophysicist, semi-retired in Mexico. But I read a piece by Roger yesterday that I like, because it allows me to rant against all the false claims emanating from countries and companies about the share of renewable power in their total energy consumption.

Roger focuses on the railway system in the Netherlands, run by NS, which recently claimed that it operates on 100% wind power. This is of course, if you know anything about electricity generation and the grid, a preposterous claim, and that the company has the guts to make such a claim can only serve to prove how little the general public knows about the topic. Or they wouldn’t dare. Green is still so sexy in certain circles, and actual knowledge so poor, that companies like the NS feel no scruples about stretching their ‘greenness’ into absurd theater territory.

Green Bond Market Will Continue To Grow / Interest-Rates / Renewable Energy

By: Chris_Vermeulen

If a bond has a negative yield, then the bondholders will lose their money on their investment. In the long run, their expectations are lower and consequently they lose the incentive to invest — which may have far-reaching repercussions.

Green Bonds Are Changing Investor Expectation’s

The rapid growth of the green bond market has sparked interest from many audiences.

Renewable Green Energy Bankruptcies / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: BATR

With the approach of the much ballyhooed Paris Climate Summit, the world is being conditioned to accept the spread of the renewable energy gospel. As shams go this one is a doozy. Absent from the filtered media coverage is the actual record of failure and fraud that produces more bankruptcies than usable energy. Hold onto your socks, the waste of public money is about to accelerate. All these projects will enrich the few, while soaking the multitude. Aye, global warming is such a blessing . . .

David Fessler writes: I’ve been talking about renewable energy at conferences for the last eight years. Every year, I’ve said renewables will continue to be the fastest-growing energy sector.

And every year, the data proves me right.

Renewable energy sources now generate 28% of the world’s electricity, up from 25% in 2013.

Why Renewable Energy Is Attracting the Smart Money / Companies / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: While everyone's been fixated on oil, renewable energy has been gathering some serious steam.

Led by solar power, worldwide capital investment in "clean" energy surged by more than 16% last year.

In fact, spending on renewable energy was so strong in 2014, some have begun to label the recent rush into renewables as a "turning point" in the energy balance.

New Algae Research May Have Uncovered an “Energy Forest” Under the Sea / Companies / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: I’ve never subscribed to the idea that we need a silver bullet to replace crude oil.

I’ve always believed the better solution would be to develop a working balance among sustainable and exchangeable energy sources.

Today, we have contributions from renewables like solar, wind, geothermal, biofuels, and even wave and kinetic power, to complement the energy we create from crude oil, natural gas, nuclear, and coal.

Why Lower Crude Oil Prices Won’t Kill the Renewable Energy Boom / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Kent Moors writes: Whenever oil prices drop, everyone always wonders how it will affect wind and solar power.

It follows from the traditional assumption that renewables like these are only competitive when oil and natural gas prices are high.

After all, the early stages of wind and solar power came with a hefty front-loaded price tag, requiring massive government subsidies to both producers and end users to get off the ground.

Is Geothermal Power About to Become The Next Great Battleground Over Fracking? / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Money_Morning

Dr. Kent Moors writes: Of all the renewable energy sources, geothermal power remains by far the smallest.

But that may not prevent it from becoming the next energy “hot potato.”

A good example of its potential can be found in Iceland, where the entire country runs on geothermal power. Of course, it does help to have a string of active volcanoes to tap.

Mines That Run On Solar Or Wind Power / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: OilPrice_Com

Mining companies are often seen as dinosaurs when it comes to making changes that will benefit the environment, but that perception may be shifting as some companies turn to renewable energy to cut costs and lighten their carbon footprint.

At first blush, mining and renewable energy seem incongruous. Mining's reputation as a voracious consumer of fossil fuels is well deserved, especially surface mining, where diesel-sucking haul trucks perform endless loops to and from gigantic pits scraped ever-deeper by immense earth-moving machines belching greenhouse gases.

Tokelau, an independent territory of New Zealand, is a small three island archipelago of about 1,400 residents about 300 miles north of American Samoa in the South Pacific. In October 2012, the Polynesian nation turned off the last of its diesel generators and became the first country to use solar power as its only energy source.

The UK Green Energy Policy Shambles / Politics / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

GREEN TAPE AND BUSINESS DONT MIX
BusinessEurope president Jürgen Thumann speaking to EurActiv at the European Business Summit, May 15, squarely blamed the European Commission for "the negative effects of green tape”, also saying EU regulations create ‘unnecessary burdensome legislative instruments in climate, energy and environment policies’.  The UK Energy Intensive Users Group, an umbrella group that represents a dozen or more energy intensive sectors such as steel, cement, paper and chemicals which have no option but to compete on international markets, often have 70% or more of their operating costs swallowed by energy purchases.  These industries are therefore very sensitive to the relative price of energy in the national economy. The EIUG's Director Jeremy Nicholson is outspoken on the negative impacts of Europe's "green tape", like its European continental opposite numbers which include Eurogas, the industry group representing the heavily penalized European gas industry.

WELCOME TO THE BUBBLE
Lord Stern, chairman of the London School of Economics' Grantham Research Institute said this month that some 60%-80% of oil, gas and coal reserves and resources owned by the world's major stock exchange listed energy and natural resource firms "need to be left in the ground if the world wants to tackle climate change". To be sure, the market value of these companies could fall by that amount, or more, due to their forward investment spending being based on increasing future output and sales.

Queen Merkel Still Loves Green Power / Politics / Renewable Energy

SHE MIGHT NOT LOOK ECOLOGICAL
Angela Merkel has stayed faithful to alternate, renewable and energy-saving green themes and dreams since 2011, which is a long time in politics. One major reason (we know its paradoxical) is that Germany has been radically increasing its coal-burn, this winter, which itself is delaying large increases of power prices to consumers. Other reasons are also to be found there, in the power sector.

Clean Energy Mercantilism And The Low Carb World / Commodities / Renewable Energy

By: Andrew_McKillop

CLIMATE CHANGE MOVES ON
Until late 2012 the climate change policy line of OECD leaderships was stuck in the rut of claiming that global warming from human CO2 emissions was a crisis, mitigating this needed urgent measures to "monetize carbon", and this financing would help fund the also-urgent energy transition to clean energy. The policy line was market liberal; the policy goals only focused energy, the environment and climate. The concept of "the sustainable economy" was left for conference speakers and academics to play around with. Using clean energy to bolster state revenues and attack the fiscal crisis at home, or change global trade relations and the economy worldwide, was off the menu.
