It was a big week in #energy. For the need-to-know recap, dive into this thread. 👇
Our mission is to accelerate the global #lowcarbon #energytransition by unleashing the potential of #opensource #digital tech, including the #EnergyWeb #blockchain.

In tandem, major energy companies around the world are making big pivots.
Legacy oil majors such as #EnergyWeb member @Shell are investing heavily in #digitalization and #renewables.

Electricity grid operators are becoming TRANSPORTATION companies, via #electricvehicle charging infrastructure and supplying electrons as 'fuel' to those #EVs.

"I believe at a society level, a whole series of social contracts are about to be revoked & re-written". This was 2015.

I guess this may include various 'Constitutions'?

Why are MSM not alone not telling truth (considered too 'fringe') but avoiding it?

now the choice may be btwn "social control" (lockdown) vs hyperinflation.
In sustainability "slowing societal metabolism" is understood (Ecological Economics).
Mainstream economists call this concept "the velocity of money".

= hyperinflation.
For ppl's lived experience, this translates as a "New Normal" (ie., reduced living stds; nothing to do with a virus, although LDs have prolonged it beyond its trajectory).

A week ago, I left my job with the in-house consulting firm of the German gov/ public sector. I am deeply grateful for privileged insights and manifold opportunities to learn over the past ~2 years. Some of the things I learned 👇
1/
#twitterverwaltung #organization #mgmttwitter
Public authorities are over-individualized and “under-cultured”. Personal opinions, position and portrayed performance matter a lot. In fact, public authorities put in surprisingly large efforts into consensus-building. I’ve spent at least 30-50% of my work time doing that. 2/
Yet this does not mean public orgs have a deep understanding of organizational culture as a strategic resource. This starts with buildings designed for an almost Fordist, individualized work process with a chronic lack of meeting spaces, let alone a welcoming atmosphere. 3/

"There has been a clear spike in #online shopping, and #retail #analysts are wondering whether this is a #decisive #move into the #virtual world, and the further #dominance of big #corporations."

Please tell the analysts that the answer is yes.
"Keeping us distracted as we wait at home for our parcels is the streaming #entertainment industry – a market sector which is dominated by big corporations including #Netflix, #Amazon Prime (again), #Disney and and others."

#Digitalization represents the trend of future development of the #capitalmarket, but #China’s capital market still faces many challenges in its digitalization, according to Xiao Gang, former CSRC Chairman:

1. The challenge of global competition. Compared with their counterparts in developed countries, securities firms and fund managers in China fall short in IT investment...2/9
2. The integration of the capital market and digital currencies will confront difficulties. Many countries are working to introduce digital fiat currencies, but how could the new currencies accommodate the capital market? What fundamental changes will they bring about? 3/9

No longer is it necessary to pay attention to my 2019-2020 ramblings/warnings of a global economic reset. Instead, as of June 3, 2020, you can now hear it directly from the source: the World Economic Forum (#WEF).

The World Economic Forum: home of the #FourthIndustrialRevolution as designed and desired by the ruling classes in tandem with the world's most powerful and ruthless corporations and institutions.

Leveraging #COVID19 (& global #protest) for all it's worth, the virus is indeed the new war on terror.

"The Great Reset" - "A better #capitalism and a better world—to help shape the recovery from COVID-19, the Forum has launched the Great Reset Initiative"

1. My new research discussion paper (bit.ly/2A0KuQm) outlines six key #governance challenges emerging from #energy #digitalization - first up is #datagovernance! @exeterepg
2. #datagovernance is the subject of a lot of current #policy work - issue awareness is high and broad support is reported for sector initiatives by e.g. @beisgovuk @EnergySysCat @ofgem @cse_bristol @SustainFirst. Report findings raise a few areas for further discussion, e.g.:
3. Where do principles-based approaches work well and where might new policy need enforcement/'teeth'?
Where are 'hard' barriers to data openness written into existing codes/licenses and how can we fix this? What is the optimal granularity for a national asset register?

The #COVID19 is the the global transformational reset button for the fourth industrial revolution sought by those World Economic Forum et al. We witness a global consolidation of power, inclusive of UN & WHO as the 4IR rolls out. Data & nature: the post2020 coveted class assets.
#WEF: "We partner w/ governments, leading companies, civil society, & experts from around the world to co-design & pilot innovative new approaches to policy & governance in the Fourth Industrial Revolution."

The #1 influencer for World Economic Forum/United Nations is resurrected in order to promote "#digitalization for all" as the #FourthIndustrialRevolution brings civil society into it's fold. "Access to #digital #education" prioritized over nutrition, water, & sanitation. #WEF
"Amply, an online attendance-taking system [] to track “impact,” is being piloted through #SmartStart a S. #Africa pre-school franchise.

... financed in part through #UNICEF’s innovation venture capital fund... registered over 3,100 [] as of spring 2018"

"The tone they use when talking about this lack of “#trust” in the development aid space is steeped in a racist, colonial mindset. The “trust” issue provides cover for their real agenda. Pen & paper methods don’t capture enough #data, & digitized data is what they most desire."

A few comments is response to "Planet of the Humans". Gibbs (& Zehner) slay many "green energy" myths once & for all – while exposing the foundation "movements" as part & parcel of industry/capital & ruling classes – which they are.
Added caveat: Industrial civ. is destroying all life on Earth. Human destruction of #biodiversity is not created equally: "Tribal peoples are the best conservationists & guardians of the natural world, & 80% of our planet’s #biodiversity is found in #tribal territories."
Link to caveat:

Embargoed until 12:01am EDT, Tuesday, April 21, 2020: The #Rockefeller Foundation has created a National #Covid19 Testing Action Plan intended to serve as a resource guide for the "largest public health testing program in American history". Image
"The effort will ultimately grow to billions of dollars per month although innovations in testing technology should eventually drop costs...Coordination of such a massive program should be treated as a wartime effort, with a public/private bipartisan #Pandemic Testing Board..." Image

Some comments at the end of #OSCE meeting: We have to take advantage of @OSCE. We need a real political dialogue on substantive matters and the intention to reach solutions. The starting point is the recognition that we have principles and commitments we have to abide by.(1/3)
We also need the real recognition of the need of cooperation and global governance to face new challenges that have emerged as a result of #globalization, #climatechange and #digitalization.(2/3)
@Slovakia_OSCE @EmbEsEslovaquia
Our responses to challenges must be based on universal values of #justice, non-discrimination, #solidarity and #humanrights. We cannot afford wasting @OSCE in the present situation. As a matter of fact, we cannot afford to waste any multilateral instrument.(3/3)
