A relative of mine came to me to look for best #FixedDeposit option available today, and that got me thinking that there should be a #Stock which can fulfill this purpose, and voila i got 1 #SJVN, so here is a thread, why at current levels it is a FD.
#SJVN is the principal business activity #Electricity #generation of the company. The company is also engaged in the business of providing consultancy. Both of these segments are not affected due to #COVID19

1-Through the #Grace of the #Godeess ,we have been on a cosmic #Joyride since quite some time now!

Let’s continue with the same with the discussions on some more #Shakti #Mantras! (1/21)

2-Let’s begin today with #Klim

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

@IvankaTrump Your father has been the single most threat to the environment this nation has ever endured. I own solar companies. Two tariffs and the removal of incentives was evil. To then turn around and give the money to coal companies who then went bankrupt was intentional evil.
@IvankaTrump .@realDonaldTrump
More than 62,000 jobs, $19 billion in investment and 10.5 GW of solar are lost due to your tariffs. In 2016 we were the fastest growing industry in the United States. If you want to fix the economy drop the tariffs on solar.
@IvankaTrump @realDonaldTrump Tariffs on imported solar cells and modules have led to the loss of more than 62,000 U.S. jobs and $19 billion in new private sector investment, according to a market impact analysis released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

I know you are a nice person, @arsetechnica who means well, so this thread is for you.

I oppose the death penalty but I'm not an expert so I listen to and donate to experts like you.

I'm an expert on health & #climate impacts from #oilandgas with over 16 yrs experience.
I worked for #oilandgas.
I was a directly impacted landowner and a mineral owner, which is how I became a health and environmental advocate.
I've been OGI certified for over 6 yrs and have more experience behind an OGI camera than most regulators and industry.
First I thought: Oh, this #fracking is a mess and someone needs to make them do it right. I co-authored Drill Right Texas. I had good intentions, but insufficient information.

#oilandgas promised in 2005 to stop the emissions that turned my air brown.

Solar Power, Case and Investment Thesis (for corporate/industrial companies) and all of us end user (thread). Inspired by Blackout tonight.

Here is how your electricity bill looks like. The main numbers to think about are the consumption units and the total monthly bill.
How does this look over the year? There are months you spent significantly higher.
Pay attention to the unit cost- consolidated tax inclusive cost is around 21.93 Kes/unit to Kes 23.64. Or an average of , $22cents/unit
Could #solar be a viable solution? Here is why we should consider it to begin with:

-Uses rooft, that we often don’t use.
-Massive advances in tech (inverter, panel and optimizers)
-More knowledgeable EPC/designBuild companies like @QuestworksKenya
-plenty of sun ☀️ here

Gegen die #Erneuerbaren Energien (#EE) werden die abwegigsten Argumente bemüht.

Eine ganz besonders absurde Blüte wurde zuletzt auch wieder vom @BMWi_Bund, bemüht. Daher hier exklusiv für Sie, die hoffentlich letzte Richtigstellung zu:

Die These: #Deutschland habe nicht genügend Flächen, um die Energieversorgung mit #Solar und #Windkraft im eigenen Land zu gewährleisten. Hier angeführt vom @BMWi_Bund:
Wohlgemerkt kommt dieser Kommentar wenige Wochen, nach dem Sie / die @cdu gegen erheblichen Widerstand einen 1.000m Mindestabstand von Windkraftanlagen zu Wohnbebauung beschlossen, und dadurch die zumindest für #Windkraft verfügbaren Flächen erheblich dezimiert haben.

Thread (1/9) Proud of our new report! So many messages distilled for you, by our team @EU_ScienceHub and from a polyphony of #EnergyScenarios. Let the deeper understanding of it mature now. Enjoy its taste !… #EUGreenDeal
(2/9) Scenarios achieving 50-56% CO2 reduction by 2030 see total #coal use reduce by 70%, #oil by 25-50% and #naturalgas by up to 25%. The use of total #biomass ranges from limited growth to an increase of up to 60%. All compared to 2017.
(3/9) The growth of #wind power generation varies between a factor of 1.5 and 3.5 and the growth of #solar power between 1.5 and 4.5. Between 2017 and 2030.
#Hydrogen and #CCUS emerges in some but not all scenarios.

Short thread on the real problems with power procurement in India, aka BIDDING DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM

New PPA after 5 years: Madhya Pradesh approves pact with Adani Power… via @FinancialXpress
India doesn't bid for power, it bids for power plants.

You may get the cheapest coal plant, but not the cheapest power. RTC (“round the clock”) bids indicate trends but are also misleading. India needs Time of Day WHOLESALE pricing to improve generation portfolio signaling.
Far more worrying is whether such a long term PPA is needed, given power purchase agreements (PPAs) by the state (MP) exceed visible needs. Problem is a legacy mindset, including financing (who funds without a PPA? – same for #RenewableEnergy). Fuel is also linked to PPAs.

Anyone else noticing despite the pandemic, global financial institutions seem to be accelerating their exit from fossil fuels, starting with formal coal exit polices that are tightening at an accelerating pace! Or maybe these two issues are connected i.e. accepting the science?!
Here is one of the latest ones, @HSBC removed its three country exemptions (Bangladesh, Indonesia and Vietnam) for coal power, and expanded their project finance exemption for new tar sands and arctic drilling. 🇬🇧✅…
It took a while, but now @Citi has strengthened their previously very weak #coal policy. Now it is not too bad + Citi has committed to tightening transparently every year till they reach zero coal finance by 2030.🇺🇸✅…

.@MMFlint and Jeff Gibbs could have done research, and asked some real experts on energy. Instead, they took the cheap, conspiracy theorist way out, which was a dis-service to everyone. So let's go over some of the more biggest whoppers in "Planet of the Humans". /1(thread)
(26:24) "You can’t replace a coal plant with solar." Well, that's news to me. Perhaps @mmflint could have looked at the electricity generation mix in California or Germany, where fossil fuel plants are increasingly replaced with—you guessed it—#solar (and in Germany, wind). /2
In 2009, California was getting 8% of its power from coal, 42% from natural gas. Solar was 0.3% of the mix. In 2018, coal was 3%, gas was 35% and solar was 11%-but that's only large-scale solar. Rooftop was probably another 5% (it's usually not counted).3…

1/ Part 1 of my reflections on the Michael Moore-backed #PlanetoftheHumans 🍿🍿🍿
2/ The YouTube write-up is an accurate summary of the movie's argument.
The misanthropy inherent in the phrase "out-of-control human presence" is ... revealing. 🤦‍♂️ Image
3/ This movie will split the environmental movement between the (hardline, blue collar) "degrowth" and (moderate, white collar) "green growth" factions.
It's a proxy for class politics, Gaia-style!

Great event and panel put together by @livemint @UtpalBhaskar converging diverse views from financing, #fossilfuel generation, #energytransition #technology and business operations in the #electricity value-chain! 1/n
As Power Minsiter @RajKSinghIndia rightly said, problems of capacity and #energyaccess has been solved, and the next problem to be solved is reducing #India's #carbonfootprint - #electrification of #mobility and #cooking is one pathway.
Increasing domestic and international demand for #electricity will lead to more #RenewableEnergy capacity installation; new connections and usage will ⬆️domestic demand, integration & #export (neighbors inc #Myanmar #SriLanka) will ⬆️cross-border demand, which India can supply.

This article has been making the rounds:….

And we’ve noticed it being used to shut down discussion about the societal and environmental benefits of eating #localfood - so we did some digging below the controversial headline.
The article cites (among other things) a study comparing growing lettuce in the UK during winter to importing it from Spain (where it’s still in season). Growing out-of-season food is often energy-intensive and this naturally makes a local diet look bad. But…
A local diet isn’t just about eating what you can BUY locally; it’s about eating what can naturally GROW locally. If one were to compare local in-season food vs imported food of the same type, the results would look very different.

We keep having this fight because the last time we had a macro economic frame in this country was Clinton/Rubin which was about the govt not competing in the debt markets
While @SenSanders has Modern Monetary Theory and @ewarren has a wealth tax, neither has wrapped it up into a neat bow for the monied class — they don’t think they have to
So come up with a new frame and call it something like it #ClimateWealth

India’s electricity sector transition continues to progress. #RenewableEnergy has been the least cost source of new generation capacity since 2017 at <Rs3/kWh, 20% below existing domestic coal power at Rs3.60. RE is over two-thirds of all new installs in 2019/20.
Indian electricity demand grew just 0.7% year-on-year in CY2019, a dramatic slowdown on the >6% CAGR this decade.
In the ten months to Jan’2020, India’s #coal fired power generation is down 26TWh. Not the peak, but definitely a clear sign of the technology transition underway.
And key players driving this technology driven transition like @AzurePowerSolar continue to power ahead!…

HAPPENING NOW: #RFFlive’s “Making Sense of @FERC’s #MOPR Order.” Watch the livestream on our event webpage:

#EnergyTwitter #FutureOfPower
@FERC 2/ RFF’s Kathryne Cleary is giving a brief primer on @FERC’s #MOPR order. Some context: @pjminterconnect’s capacity market, which we’re here to discuss today, is intended to promote investment and ensure adequate supply is available to meet demand.
@FERC @pjminterconnect 3/ Cleary: PJM has had an existing #MOPR in place since 2006, which was originally intended for new #NatGas plants to prevent them from bidding into the market at low prices. This MOPR order expands upon that to include state-subsidized resources.

Thread on oil & Gas in #Oman
1-With the passing of Sultan Qaboos on Friday and the choice of Sultan Haitham as the new leader of Oman, Oman #oil policy is expected to remain the same with the aim of increasing oil and gas production within OPEC+ framework
2-Oman producers about to 1 mb/d of crude & condensates. It is also an LNG exporter. Oman is among the very few countries in the world that announces its production figures at the end of every month. Kudos to Dr. Mohammed Al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas since 1997. @Mog_Oman
3-Dr Al Rumhi is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) and Chairman of @OmanLNG
He is also a media darling, especially at the JMMC & OPEC+ meetings. Just ask OPEC journalists.
