Electricity Prices on the Rise / Personal_Finance / Electricity

By: Dumitru_Midon

Electricity is not really something any of us can do without. Whether you have a tariff or a prepaid meter the money soon seems to go, and the media is continually reminding us that prices are going up. Consumers are feeling badly let down by Ofgem, the industry regulators who put a cap in place to ensure that variable tariffs could only rise to a certain point, and then moved the cap higher leaving people feeling frustrated and angry.

Renewable Energy’s Problem and the Solution / Companies / Electricity

By: Richard_Mills

The electric vehicle (EV) market, indeed the entire energy storage market, is at the start of an at least decade long major transition.

Why would I think that? Well…

  • Electric cars deliver full torque from a standstill so they have impressive acceleration. They are fun to drive!
  • Electric cars are quiet, there is no combustion, no muffler.
  • Electric cars do not use explosive fuel, there is no gas tank.
  • Electric cars are cheaper to operate, electricity being cheaper than gasoline.
  • Electric cars are also cheaper to maintain than combustion systems. Having far fewer parts makes the car less complex, easier and cheaper to maintain – there’s no ignition, exhaust, timing or cooling systems.
  • Electric cars can be plugged in at home and you wake up with a fully charged battery every day.
  • No more getting ‘hosed’ at the gas station, not even the day before a long weekend when combustion engine car owners are lining up.
  • Road trips have currently been extended to over 400 km on a single charge.
  • A network of charging stations is being built with potential recharge times as low as two minutes.
  • Old batteries can and will be recycled. Current technology saves a minimum of 70 percent on CO2 emissions involved in creating lithium-ion batteries from scratch.
  • Zero tail pipe emissions.

Energy Foreign Ownership Translates into Higher Electric Bills / Companies / Electricity

By: BATR

What exactly is a public utility? If you listen to the government officials in New York State, a foreign company is just dandy and will qualify from the Public Service Commission as a provider of electricity. While this may be old news, the continued adverse fallout from foreign ownership can no longer be flittered away. The latest approval of rate increases goes as an example of how the entire political favoritism system operates. The Buffalo N.Y. News reports, You’re likely to see higher electric bills soon.

Lenin's Goelro And The Myth Of Total Electrification / Politics / Electricity

By: Andrew_McKillop

LENIN AND THE GOELRO
Announcing the Goelro plan on 21 February 1920, Vladimir Lenin said that communism was to politics what electricity is for the economy, saying: “Communism is Soviet power plus the electrification of the whole country”. Without total electrification “industry cannot be developed” and for Lenin, the plan was even a bulwark against barbarism, ignorance and disease, and a silver bullet for Russian recovery from the ravages of WWar I and the October Revolution.

By: Andrew_McKillop

PURE AND SIMPLE ECONOMICS
Outside the US, Canada, China, Australia, India, South Africa, Indonesia and a certain number of other countries, electricity has become a highly valued asset for the financial strategy of leading energy companies – starting with Big Oil. In the highest-priced region for electricity – the EU – Eurostat gives the average price for household consumers as 11.9 euro cents (15.5 US cents) per kWh in 2012 pricing electricity at around $248 per barrel of oil equivalent.

How to Profit From Africa’s $300 Billion Electricity Boom / Companies / Electricity

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: President Obama is wrapping up a wide-ranging trip to Africa this week, one in which he talked about everything from human rights, the triumphs of Nelson Mandela, a return to growth in Zimbabwe and the prospects of an African renaissance.

But it was his comments about access to electricity that should have drawn the most attention. The President is setting the stage for a huge leap in Africa's standard of living - and most people probably didn't notice.

The End Of Oil And The Coming Electric Economy / Commodities / Electricity

By: Andrew_McKillop

To be sure, rumours of the impending death of oil are exaggerated and anticipate trends - but since 2001 the trend continues. Using IEA data, in 1973 the OECD countries sourced 53% of their total energy  supply from oil, underlining that the post-2001 trend is anything but new.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Kent Moors writes: As we come to the end of an election campaign cycle, something else will be ending as well.

Wind subsidies.

A poster child for the ongoing debate over government support for renewable energy, the wind subsidy will expire at the end of 2012. Amidst the fog and din of a political war, Congress is not going to renew it.

The Crazy World Of Smart Grids And Carbon Capture / Politics / Electricity

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile the oil-intensive but deindustrialized countries of the West show mounting signs of stress at the prospect of more and further oil price rises, and China moves ever onward on its oil-intensive industrial path racking up huge trade surpluses while paying for all the oil it wants, the twin sideshow of  smart grids and carbon capture still has some headroom, in some countries. The main problem, however, is that CCS is almost certainly impossible, and smart grids will be fantastically expensive.
