Let's talk electricity.

Europe is in danger of rolling electricity shortages from what I call a crisis of confidence.

I will explain why, back it with data & kindly ask YOU to share it as the fix lies in voting for balanced policies. We must adapt, urgently!

For those of you short of time, attached a brief summary of the issue at hand.

I was asked to compare the 1970ies energy crisis with today's for a Turkish newspaper. My answer below.

For those of you with time, please read on.

The European electricity grid is a modern miracle. It is the largest synchronous electrical grid (by connected power) in the world. It interconnects 520 million end-customers in 32 countries, including non-European Union members such as Morocco or Turkey.

Let us look at the state of the European gas market.

We have worked hard to collect real time data where possible and are convinced to have a worldclass database by now.

What did we find out?

Thread 1/n
#TTF #LNG Image
Big picture first:

- Consumption: -12.2% yoy;
- RUS pipe imports: -48% yoy (inc. RUS LNG imports -42%);
- Local Production: +0.6% (Groningen could increase EU production by 10% alone within weeks);
- LNG imports: +70%.
- Net storage build: 45bcm!

2/n #Netherlands Image

- ITA, FRA, GER, POL or CZE have done a great job saving gas to fill salt cavities et al "whatever it takes style".
- UK cannot b/c it lacks storage;
- EE struggles to access more flows;
- EU covers 51 of 180 winter days (<2 months).

So it needs flows!

The #Dutch government is taking extra steps to ensure security of supply this winter as #Russian piped supplies to #Europe continue to drop.
read my #ICIS latest for more datils and data insights (subs only):…
#natgas #ONGT #energy #gas #Netherlands
An additional €10m would be made available to further fill the #Bergermeer storage facility up to 90%. This adds to a budget left over from a previous subsidy to fill up Bergermeer of approximately €200m.
Further subsidy will be also made available for the #Norg storage facility so that further filling can be done.
The government said it does not intend to boost extraction from the Dutch #Groningen field to meet the new storage target it has set for the upcoming winter.

#svagaiature #WWII #heroes #Canada #Netherlands #Zwolle
Two volunteers were chosen to do a recconaissance mission around the city to help the artillery. Private Leo Major and Corporal Willy Arsenault were tasked with the mission. The two soldiers however decided to try to conquer the city alone, to try to keep the city intact. (2/4)
During the mission Arsenault was killed when he gave his position by mistake. Major however kept going and engaged many patrols and set off grenades where they would make more noise. He even assalted the SS headquarters killing 4 soldiers of the 8 present. (3/4)

This thread has very revealing data showing that mRNA-vaccinations create majority of the covid cases. Largest covid waves come always after the booster rounds. Not before. AFTER.

🧵 2/51

Isn't it weird coincidence that the EU suffered the most largest covid wave right after the boosting started?

Ofcourse this can be coincidence but with
what possibility the very same thing happened also in every EU memeber country? Keep reading...

This is the start of the daily thread for Day 151 of the Russian full scale invasion of #Ukraine.

Two big talking points yesterday concerning #Odesa and #Donetsk and the arguments continue.

News & analysis throughout the day.
Read, comment, share!


I have to start with news of yet more missiles landing in #Mykolaiv this morning.

Two separate attacks yesterday destroying universities and homes in #Nikolaev, and two people were injured.

Now a fresh Russian raid with 5 powerful explosions reported.


Mayor of #Mykolaiv Oleksandr Sienkovych has not released further details yet about this morning's damage or any casualties. Rescue services are on site.

CCTV caught the moment of impact.

This month, the dramatic #FarmersProtests in the Netherlands have captured the media's attention.

Today, we take a look at what the coverage got wrong about the #boerenprotest and the #BigAg interests many journalists failed to mention.👇 1/19… Image
🚫Most reports failed to mention 8 major companies that have an interest in protecting the status quo:

🐷 meat: @VionFoodGroup, @VanDrieGroup & @PlukonFoodGroup
🌽 feed: Van Heus, For Farmers & @Agrifirm
🐮 dairy: @FrieslndCampina
💵 finance: @RaboFoodAgri

🔍"The Mighty Eight try to be invisible because the more it is seen as a #farmer protest and not the big industry behind it, the better,” says @FrankMechielsen, @feedback_europe.

@Agrifirm even supported the #boerenprotest financially, @NOS reports. 3/19…
