The EIA released its Annual Energy Outlook
Here's 15 forecasts that went right and wrong over the past decade - a thread #oott #oil #natgas #renewables
Oil Demand: In 2011, oil demand was forecast to be 19.1 Mbbls/d by 2022 (actual: 17.7 Mbbls/d) Image
Part of the energy revisions reflect changes to U.S. population growth (which has been revised down 6% since the 2018 - the first year with forecasts out to 2050). By 2050, U.S. population is expected now at 370 mln vs. 395 mln people previously. Image
U.S. Crude Supply: In 2011, oil production was forecast to be 3.8 Mbbls/d by 2022 (actual: 9.6 Mbbls/d).
2050 production forecast has been revised 5% higher y/y to 11.2 Mbbls/d. But overall, for the next ~30 years, the EIA expects production to remain mostly flat #permian #bakken Image

The Chancellor @Jeremy_Hunt has announced the Energy Price Guarantee will stay at £2,500 for an average home.

He forgot to mention that houses will actually be paying £67 more per month on #EnergyBills because the Energy Bills Support Scheme is ending.

#Budget2023 #SpringBudget
🏡 7.5 million households will be in fuel poverty from April

🫰People will be paying more than double what they were in 2021

🍃We need a real plan for cheaper energy. The Chancellor needs to invest in home upgrades and a renewable revolution.
🫵 We need your help to get every MP on board to fight for a long-term solution to the #EnergyCrisis.

📢Join us on April 1st for our national mass lobby!

📜Thousands of us will call on our local MPs to sign the #WarmThisWinter cross-party pledge.

1/6 It's important for businesses to be aware of the rising energy costs. According to the World Bank, the cost of energy is expected to be 46% higher on average in 2023. This can significantly impact your business finances
#EnergyEfficiency #dellemc #powerbill
2/6 One solution to reduce energy costs is to adapt energy-efficient #servers. A study by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that a typical server in a data center uses an avg of 200 watts of power, resulting in an energy cost of $731/yr /server
3/6 By implementing more energy-efficient #servers, businesses can reduce energy costs by up to 80%. For example, replacing an older server with a newer, energy-efficient model can lead to substantial energy savings

We’re told wholesale #energy prices are falling, which should bring our bills down.

Yet we’re also warned household #EnergyBills are going to spike by 40% in April & the gov is being called on to act.

How can we reconcile the two?

Feeling confused?

A thread for you...🧵1/
...To understand what’s going on we need to go back to the design of Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng’s Energy Price Guarantee (EPG) from last October...2/…
...In the face of soaring wholesale energy prices, this EPG capped the rate households could be charged by their suppliers for their gas and electricity, meaning a typical household’s bills would only rise to around £2,500 a year...3/

Using link building as part of your SEO strategy can be a roll of the dice.

Links are undeniably valuable for achieving higher rankings and search visibility. However, as Google cracks down more and more on practices deemed as spam, #WorldJuniors #worldintrovertday #energybills… the risks of link building are just as great.

2022 was a year of recovery for the box office. While the astounding success of Top Gun: Maverick and Avatar: The Way of Water proved that audiences would turn out for “event cinema,” many independent films #RatanTata #RHOSLC #energybills and mid-budget titles underperformed as audiences turned to streaming. There was no such thing as a “sure thing” at the box office, as the changing theatrical window and dominance of franchises made it harder for original films to stand out… This year proved that even seemingly “safe” franchise vehicles could underperform thanks to dismal reviews with Lightyear, Halloween Ends, and Morbius. There is certainly reason to have hope; if something as emotionally dense as The Whale or as utterly

In the summer, Ronaldo turned down an offer from a different Saudi club, Al Hilal, which would have given him a roughly $370 million contract over a number of years. A the time, he chose to stay at Manchester United, saying he was happy there. #ETH #EnergyBills #ebony Multiple outlets have cited Ronaldo’s salary with Al Nassr at around $200 million per year when commercial agreements are included — which, if confirmed, would be the largest-ever salary in the history of the sport.… Prominent soccer reporter Fabrizio Romano outlined the contract deal in a tweet, calling it the “biggest salary ever in football.” At 37, Ronaldo is at the normal retirement age for a professional soccer player, so his signing extends his career with a

All online casinos offer their customers a variety of slot machines. They may be similar to each other, or unique. But good virtual institutions should take care that customers have access to diverse entertainment. #WWERaw #WeLoveYouJin #energybills… There are many criteria according to which slot machines are distinguished, but all of them are divided into classic and video slots. In the first case, the machines have no more than three reels with one or five paylines. These are simple machines,… and compared to them, video slots have a greater opportunity to get a winning combination.

⏰ At 8am, 15 Just Stop Oil supporters walked onto the road at Bricklayers Arms roundabout in South London demanding the government halt all new oil and gas licences.

#FreeLouis #FreeJosh #CivilResistance #A22Network #NoNewOil #EnoughIsEnough
Sam Griffiths, 47, a Dad and designer from London said:

"I feel sick seeing how little is happening to address climate breakdown, the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. And our Government is actively making things worse. Granting over 100 new oil licences is indefensible"
💬 "I started actively supporting Just Stop Oil after we had 40°C in the UK for the first time in recorded history. It scared the shit out of me. I looked at my boy and realised I couldn't just continue to do nothing."

US inventories of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel are at dangerously low levels. Wind farms and solar panels aren’t going to help us out of this mess. Biden just green-lighted importing additional production from Venezuela (Amnesty International comments below). #OOTT #NoPlan Image
‘For years, Amnesty International has documented and denounced the policy of repression implemented by Nicolas Maduro’s government in Venezuela, which aims to silence critics and dissent. Crimes under international law and human rights violations, including politically…
motivated arbitrary detentions, torture, extrajudicial executions and excessive use of force, have been systematic and widespread, and may therefore amount to crimes against humanity.’ When all we have to do is allow the Keystone Pipeline to be built between Canada and the 🇺🇸.

After 5 months of intense work the @FT published this piece that involved a ton of hands-on work. Check it out ➡️…. It looks sleek but I do want to raise a few further points that I think could be discussed differently
#EnergyCrisis #EnergyBills #energy ImageImageImage
Point 1: We provided bill estimates under multiple price scenarios. Treating the #EnergyPriceGuarantee as the "price" I find problematic. The EPG implies a #EnergySubsidy benefitting mostly the well off that we all need to fund through #austerity and/or higher #taxation. So this
does not represent the full economic cost. It also ignores carbon prices which we all need should be MUCH higher. Using estimates based on the Oct 2022 Ofgem price cap ~ £3500 per year which is inline with predictions for most of 2023 (see forecasts from @CornwallInsight). Image

Gas standing charges are still going up (now around £100 per year), but if we want to save energy, we should abolish them. People are switching away from gas and as a result, we're using MORE gas, and SLOWING heat pump installations.
@itvMLshow @RichardJMurphy #energybills
@itvMLshow @RichardJMurphy How so?
I'll answer:
When someone replaces a boiler with a heat pump, what's left, is often a gas hob. At current prices (and despite high gas unit prices), the standing charge works out at 80-90% of the bill.
So what people do is fit an induction and hob remove the meter.
This means they actually spend MORE on the electricity used than on the gas used (Good. Electricity is higher carbon emissions for heating), and produce more in carbon emissions because each incremental unit of electricity is 100% generated by either gas or goal.

#Thread Below is a statement from Sarah Jaynes, a key advisor to the Winning Jobs Narrative project and the Executive Director of the Rural Democracy Initiative: 1/11 #RuralDemocracyInitiative Image
Voters in small cities and rural communities are working people, through and through. They believe in their communities and in this country, even when the country fails to prioritize them and rural economies struggle. 2/11 #RuralVoters #DemPriorities #WorkingAmerica Image
Some right wing leaders have tried to exploit the economic anxiety that many rural Americans justifiably feel.But the Biden Administration & current Congressional majority have taken action with the greatest investments in rural America in the last 50 years. 3/11 #DemPriorities Image

Inflation in The Netherlands rising to a staggering 17.1%!!!

#inflation #STAGFLATION #Netherlands Image
For all the "economist" and peak inflation "experts" out there

This is NOT a local phenomenon!

#inflation #STAGFLATION #recession #European Image
FYI for all energy and inflation experts the Dutch saw NO problems with their massive housing bubble (tax friendly) and their cheap gas to heat their homes ⛽️

Liz Truss’ intervention to freeze the #energypricecap for 2 years is a big one that shows the government has finally grasped the scale of the challenge.

But there is a sting in the tail.

By refusing to ask energy companies - who will be making £170 billion worth of excess profits over the next 2 years - to foot the bill, the government will instead be asking our public services and communities to pay for this through lower investment.

And for families on low to modest incomes, average #energybills of £2,500 a year will still be a big hit when combined with the rising cost of food and everyday essentials. Yet, the government has done very little to boost their incomes.

New energy price guarantee - 15 quick need to knows for CONSUMERS. Please feel free to share...

#energybills #priceguarantee
Sorry spotted i'd an error so reposted
IMPORTANT UPDATE: The info on the rules for fixes may be changing...
1. The new 'price guarantee' will effectively work as a discount of unit rates of the pre-planned 1 Oct price cap rate.
2. I'm now hearing this per £ discount will apply to all tariffs, including fixes.

Thoughts on today’s #energybills announcement. Short 🧵:

Sensing that what will be a genuinely welcome announcement today on much needed support to cover soaring energy bills, will be tainted by supply-side ideas to placate the climate-sceptic right of her party.
If measures to increase fossil fuel extraction are greater than those needed to increase renewables/nuclear and reduce demand (INSULATION) then this will be an opportunity missed, and could make the £££bn support package even more expensive to fund.
It seems there needs to be a constant reminder that this crisis is the result of high/volatile gas prices NOT net zero.

Zahawi is "deeply concerned"
Truss "no new taxes, or rationing"

cutting the NICs & no new windfall taxes, ultimately means the biggest shrinking of the state we have ever seen

think of the direct impact on Social Care & NHS Image
SMEs, already facing insurmountable exponential energy costs, are also facing Consumer spending already falling off a cliff, 10% down Image

Lord Prem Sikka, Richard Murphy & David Blanchflower have written to the BoE urging £200 BILLION of spending to avoid meltdown, just as I suggested on the 10th March, also urging nationalisation of energy (which tories will never do) Image

last night the FT reported Truss will immediately invoke Article 16 causing a trade war whilst we have rampant inflation, are heading in to recession & at the moment 70% of businesses will fall off a cliff in October when they renegotiate energy bill
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
several quotes here from 300% increases to over 1,100%.... as I have been alerting everyone to, since the 10th March.

if govt doesn't step in immediately, the UK will have businesses failing faster & harder than they did in 2008
#EnoughIsEnough #energybills #EnergyCrisis
here's my thread from the 10th March stating businesses will fall off a cliff, nearly 6 months later STILL NO ACTION has been taken, this is INEXCUSABLE! If I knew it in March, then the govt sure as hell did!

These 6 videos could massively slash fuel bills! 💵 + COULD COST NOTHING!

Please share far & wide you could be really helping someone out this winter!

The first 'The Secret to Boiler Efficiency' is full quick wins anyone can do for up to 15% saving.
The second is more advanced to really refine your efficiency to its max! It's all about squeezing those last flow temperature drops down.

Maybe one for the more technically minded, or find a Heat Geek who knows all this! This could save up to 15%.
This next one is all about timing your heating, should I leave my heating constantly on, or time to come one as often as possible..? Savings possible here could be over 10%.

Gerard Schroeder sold Europe to Russia for a few million dollars. His government guaranteed $1 billion in Nordstream One just weeks before he was voted out and days before he joined NS1 as their CEO. He then became Chair of the Board of Russia’s largest oil producer Rosneft 1/3
And joined Gazprom’s board 20 days before Putin invaded Ukraine. When he joined Rosneft’s board, Rosneft was under sanctions by the U.S. for Putin’s actions in Crimea. Schroeder is a political prostitute that compromised all of Europe’s energy security. 2/3
Europe is now paying astronomical prices for their energy bills as prices are currently 14X their seasonal average over the last 5 years…and winter hasn’t begun yet. We could easily see discontinuous pricing this winter if Putin engages in any ‘unscheduled maintenance’ on NS.3/3
