Es geht hoch her auf #EconTwitter und #Energietwitter ueber CO2 Preise, Ordnungsrecht und Subventionen. Dabei gibt es solche, die mit Blick auf die USA und den #IRA Subventionen als Allheilmittel der Klimatransformation feiern. Politische steche oekonomische Effizienz. Ein🧵.
Was man sich zunaechst einmal klar machen muss: die Klimatransformation kostet, sie kostet reale Ressourcen, deren Fehlen jemand zu tragen haben wird. Alles, was Politik am Ende kann, ist zu bestimmen, wer den Schaden haben wird.
Natuerlich macht es Sinn, diese Ressourcen aufzuwenden, wenn und weil es uns, wie bei jeder Investition, in Zukunft ein besseres Leben verspricht. Also hier Zustimmung zu @schieritz :

The EU response to the US #IRA is rather pathetic. Its main element of matching #subsidies suggests a lack of a substantive industrial strategy. The national approach will not create a level playing field in Europe, even under the envisaged restrictions.…
The threat by #VW to build battery plants in the US and stop its plans for Europe very much looks like an attempt at blackmailing the German government for financial subsidies. This is a very concrete example of why the US IRA and the European response are so detrimental. …
The subsidy race does not improve innovation or competition, but rather implies a net transfer of taxpayer money to big companies. The EU should rather focus on improving conditions for private investment (infrastructure, R&D, deepen the single market).…

Our new #EconomicResilience Index is out!

EU countries hit hardest by economic crises are still least prepared for the next crises – among them rich countries like Italy.

Why that’s bad, why they are also least prepared for the #greentransition and what to do - a thread🧵1/10 Image
Scandinavian economies are the best-placed to absorb, recover from, and adapt to shocks, with Sweden first in the ranking. Romania, Greece and Bulgaria are the countries at the bottom of the Index. 2/10
Some of EU’s largest economies are not doing well: France ranks 11 out of 25, Spain 18 und Italy 19. The breakdown shows: Divergence is particularly large in the dimensions of Education & Skills and Governance. 3/10 Image

Im Vorfeld der Ratstagung hatte sich bereits abgezeichnet, dass Deutschland und Frankreich mit einem gemeinsamen Strategievorschlag zur EU-Antwort auf Präsident Bidens #IRA auf wenig Gegenliebe bei zahlreichen anderen Mitgliedsstaaten stoßen würden. 🧵1/8
Natürlich kann Europa nur eine gemeinsame Antwort auf das amerikanische Vorgehen finden, wenn diese Widersprüche innerhalb der EU überwunden werden. Paris und Berlin stellen sich dabei leider nicht besonders geschickt an. 2/8
Warum konnten die Minister Habeck und Le Maire nicht ein oder zwei KollegInnen aus EU-Partnerländern auf ihre Washington-Reise mitnehmen? Warum wird vom deutsch-französischen Duo vor allem die weitere Liberalisierung von Beihilferegeln betont,

.@vonderleyen unveils the EU Commission's proposal for a "Green Deal Industrial Plan" to respond to the Inflation Reduction Act :… short thread
1. It's all about climate: the new deal complements EU Green Deal and RePowerEU (EU's plan to reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels). But clearly, it's also about supporting EU green tech industry in face of US' inflation reduction act & Chinese support for green tech firms.
2. Simplify rules & secure supply chains: EU wants to 'simplify' state aid procedures. New net-zero act & critical raw materials act to ensure EU industry have components & materials they need.

🤓 time for a update on $SMR @NuScale_Power’s pilot project!

#nuscale is hoping to complete the *first* small modular #nuclear reactor #SMR in the USA in 2030, for UAMPS — a utah based energy buying group that supports dozens of small-town energy companies. 🧵 Image
#nuscale's VOYGR is a pressurised water reactor, with 2 key features:
• simplification & passive safety features reduce size & complexity
• small modular units, allowing increased proportion to be made offsite and benefit from manufacturing economies of scale. (wright's law!) Image

Here's the #inflation story you're expected to believe (advance warning: this story is entirely false): America gave the poors too much money during the lockdown and now the #economy is awash in #FreeMoney, which made those poors so rich that now they're refusing to work. 1/ A vintage postcard illustration of the Federal Reserve build

That means the economy isn't making anything anymore. With all that extra money and all those missing workers, prices are skyrocketing.

To hear ghouls like @LHSummers tell it, there is only one answer to this. 3/

La lucha por la industria de las renovables está reavivando las tensiones entre la 🇪🇺 y los 🇺🇲.

La recién aprobada Inflation Reduction Act representa una ventaja competitiva para 🇺🇲 y podría promover la deslocalización de la industria 🇪🇺.

Se abre un debate interesante 🧵👇🏼
1/11 Image
La Ley de Reducción de la Inflación, aprobada el pasado agosto, incluye subsidios por valor de $369 mil millones para la industria verde de 🇺🇲.

Un cohete para acelerar la transición ecológica, consolidar el sector en el país y garantizar su competitividad frente a 🇨🇳.

2/11 Image
El riesgo es que este enorme paquete de ayudas públicas desincentive la inversión en la UE y la relegue en el desarrollo de tecnologías verdes.

Ante esto, Francia ya ha propuesto una "Buy European Act" que dé preferencia a componentes europeos en industrias críticas.

The Senate weighed in on the grid & the @PUCTX's proposed market design changes last week. Today, the House State Affairs Cmte meets to ask questions of the PUC, #ERCOT, the Independent Market Monitor & industry. I'll tweet some highlights here. #txlege 1/…

Chair Lake starts by saying it was "misinformation" that extremes weren't included in the study. They in fact did not include Uri.

🧵 Emmanuel Macron just laid bare his objective with his offensive on the #IRA in recent interviews. He wants a new 🇪🇺 European stimulus package.

Macron: “We can’t ask the United States of America to solve our problems.” 1/3
Something he’s been pushing since *checks notes* early March 2022. ⤵️

Didn’t work the first time? In pure Macron fashion, he’ll keep pushing. 2/

Why? Because it’s an opportunity for him to “synchronize” both his foreign (European sovereignty) and domestic agenda.

Domestically, he wants to counterbalance unpopular social benefits cuts and pension reform with growth and investment in strategic areas. 3/3

My latest in @nytopinion: @EmmanuelMacron & other EU leaders have used inflammatory rhetoric to criticize 3 aspects of US energy & climate policy over profiteering from Ukraine & #IRA. These criticisms are largely baseless & risk unity in battling both Russia & climate change 🧵
Some in Europe accuse US LNG companies of “profiteering.” This is a misconception. Markets set prices, and the companies benefiting most right now are non-US LNG resellers. Plus US LNG flexibility has been crucial to helping Europe pivot away from Russia.…
EU also criticizes #IRA for large clean energy incentives, warning of a subsidy race. It's understandable Europe is worried about deindustrialization. But the culprit is Europe’s lack of competitiveness wo cheap Russian gas, not America’s new climate law.…

The dependency on #fossilfules is a risk to economic resilience & energy security inherent to the currently dominant economic models. High #coal, #oil and #gas prices have knock-on effects beyond energy systems reliability & fuel the global #polycrisis. 2/13

Today, @BloombergNEF published its annual #CCS Market Outlook. The tl:dr is that, based on current announcements, CCS capacity is set to grow 6x by 2030. That’s 44% higher than what we expected last year. And it’s before you take #IRA into account. 🧵 with some key results: Image
(2/10) CCS is diversifying. Most of the capture will be happening in #industry and #power, rather that natural gas processing. And most of the CO2 will be going in the ground, not to oil wells for EOR.
(3/10) We’ve been saying transport and storage infrastructure could be a bottleneck. *For the moment* it doesn’t look like a problem. There’s more unallocated capacity than capture projects looking for a home for their CO2. This can change quickly, given all that Midwest #ethanol

#PfizerGate Hey guys! Look at a "DETAILED" (hahahah) list of what #Biden is doing with his #IRA ... lol...…
"locks in on average $800 per year lower health care premiums for 13 million Americans (fyi there's 350 million americans), lowers seniors’ prescription drug prices, and caps their out of pocket expenses for prescription drugs at $2,000 per year...and $35/mo insulin"....
Know that Trump already capped insulin at $1100/YEAR ($90/mo) so while $55/mo difference is a lot for some people, it hardly helps inflation for the rest of the country! Further, $2,000/year? That's something to shout about? Further yet, lowering premium costs for 3.7% of the...

The Ohio Consumer Lending Association paid $40,000 to support United for Clean Power (yes, the same dark $ group behind this year's anti-Inflation Reduction Act ad campaign) in 2018, @jake_zuckerman reveals… And yes, there's a FirstEnergy connection #IRA
In 2018, the Ohio Consumer Lending Association was mad at a GOP state rep. for pushing legislation to reform the payday lending industry and protect consumers, so it secretly paid United for Clean Power for attack ads targeting that state rep.
A payday loan company executive attributed the decision to fund United for Clean Power to Neil Clark, the lobbyist who later took his own life after (separately) being indicted in connection with FirstEnergy's House Bill 6 bribery scheme in Ohio…

CALIFORNIA: Final unsubsidized avg. 2023 #ACA rate changes: +5.6% (0.4 pts lower thanks to #InflationReductionAct):…
Ironically, the #IRA extending the #AmRescuePlan's enhanced #ACA subsidies will actually SAVE the federal government a bit of money in *reduced* ACA subsidies...because it's leading to slightly lower unsubsidized 2023 premiums.

AFAICT, it should save ~$61 million in CA alone.
Yesterday Connecticut also issued their final 2023 rates, specifically stating an avg. 0.7 pt reduction from the initial request specifically thanks to the #IRA passing. That's another ~$7M saved.…

hey, y'all listening? I want to talk a bit about Joe Manchin's pipeline bill, aka the #DirtyDeal, and about journalism, and coalition-building, and odds and ends of things.
with apologies to @leahstokes and all the folk following me for Cal stuff, this #DirtyDeal is national. Big time. Serious.
And for anyone who's not yet familiar with Manchin's #DirtyDeal, this is the side deal he made with Dem leadership -- bill to allow a bunch of pipelines and transmission lines. It's not even remotely budget related so it needs a 60+ vote in the Senate, not folded into IRA.
