1/ Ik merk dat er mensen zijn die denken dat de energiecrisis door de invasie van Rusland in Oekraïne komt.
Dat heeft zeker gevolgen maar de #energiecrisis begon in de zomer van 2021 toen iedereen nog van het zonnetje zat te genieten en weinig gas nodig had.

Ik leg het uit 🧵
2/ Juist door de energietransitie met renewables heeft NL, de EU en met name Duitsland zich afhankelijk gemaakt van Russisch gas.
Zon- en windenergie kan niet worden opgeslagen dus is er een volledige back-up installatie nodig obv #gas voor als het niet waait óf te hard waait.
3/ De vraag naar gas steeg in de zomer van 2021 doordat wind op zee in Europa en hydropower in Brazilië veel minder energie produceerde dan de jaren daarvoor.
Zon- en windenergie is weersafhankelijk. Toch was op dezelfde hoeveelheid energieproductie gerekend. Gevolg, een tekort!

For the first time ever, the #US is supplying more natural #gas to #Europe than #Russia sends by pipelines, according to the International Energy Agency.

1/3

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
“Russia’s recent steep cuts in natural gas flows to the EU mean this is the first month in history in which the EU has imported more gas via LNG from the US than via pipeline from Russia,” IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol said in a tweet.

2/3
The EU in March agreed on an additional 15 billion cubic meters of US LNG this year in a bid to displace Russian gas.

Russia ships about 150 billion cubic meters of gas to Europe via pipelines every year, and another 14 billion to 18 billion cubic meters of LNG.

Time to bust some myths about #sanctions collateral damage! The sanctions debate is heating up in the West and a lot of criticism is focused on two things: High #energy prices and high #food prices. However, most get the causalities wrong: 1/
1.) Why is food expensive? E.g. wheat prices have been rising for a couple of years, partially due to Covid-related supply chain issues. When the war began, prices exploded for a few months, as Russia blocked Ukraine's exports, but right now wheat is cheaper than in late 2021. 2/
A quick reminder: The West explicitly avoids sanctioning anything related to food security. Even when effects are very indirect, measures are taken to mitigate them (like some adjustments in the latest sanctions round - this was no "deal" with Russia but is simply EU policy). 3/

Why does #Russia not simply turn off #gas, but instead comes up with complicated #turbine excuses? It is important for the political effect of Russia's gas weapon. A straight cut-off would rather unite and strengthen us, but the turbine illusion creates divisions. 1/3
The turbine narrative is: We are hurting ourselves with our sanctions on Russia, that we don't get gas due to our own measures. It is supposed to turn the German population against the government and its sanctions policy, although anything related to gas is explicitly exempt. 2/3
And here is the problem with trying to "take excuses away from Putin": By getting the turbine from Canada, Berlin has basically played along and validated Russia's turbine narrative. One cannot prove Russian propaganda wrong while taking it seriously at the same time. 3/3

Good simple explainer on Nord Stream ongoing issue. #OOTT #Gas.
Adding few numbers to .@SStapczynski explainer

To move any fluid from point A to B in a pipeline has to be pressurized, be it Oil / Water /Natural Gas

Nord Stream is a 1,224 km (760 mile) long pipeline with most of it undersea

Gas from Portovoya has to travel all this distance
So to pressurize Natural Gas, compressors are used.

These comes in all sizes, as small as in you refrigerator to sizes larger than a house

Compressors are a rotating machinery hence it either needs a electric motor or Gas Turbine to rotate it or commonly said as to drive it.

Just in: New batch of statistics on the Russian economy in June 2022!

Output in June 22 compared to June 21:
Cars: -89% (a few more than in May)
Trucks: -40%
Washing machines: -58.4%
Fridges/freezers: -52.3%

1/

rosstat.gov.ru/storage/mediab…
Industrial output in June 22 has not changed from May 22 (accounting for seasonal effects).

2/ Image
We already know from #Gazprom's statistics:

Natural #gas production was down significantly in June, totalling 39.3bcm (May: 49bcm).

Russian gas production is now 23.3% lower than in June 21, reflecting the gas cut-off of the EU.

People asking all the time, why #Russia isn't telling straight forwardly, that the reduction of #gas flows to #Europe is a counter sanction. It annoys me as well, that they don't communicate it straight "in their face" that they are being recked currently. Well...
2/
Russia can't do that currently.
Why?
Because #Russia needs to be a reliable partner for the emerging new order and the (now overtaking) global south.
#Ukraine #BRICS #Europe #EU
3/
Russia wouldn't be in the best position internationally (global south), if claiming that it wants to fight such behavior, but on the other hand is applying it on its own.

That's why I expect some more ridicules and awkward games, until #Russia can eventually fully cease #gas

“La settimana che cambiò l’Italia: dalle dimissioni respinte a quando ha rassegnato il mandato”

🔺 A poche ore dalla caduta del Governo si sfaldano le innumerevoli idiozie divulgate *da quelli* secondo cui è stato #Draghi a volere la fine del #governoDraghi

👇
Secondo il #premier, la #crisidigoverno è stata un «divorzio unilaterale», deciso dal #centrodestra dopo l’«ingenuità» del #M5S

- riporta oggi Francesco Verderami in un articolo sul Corriere

#dimissioni #elezionianticipate
#Salvini e #Berlusconi hanno sfruttato l’occasione offerta da #Conte (…)
È l’imperizia del Movimento ad aver compromesso irrimediabilmente l’equilibrio

Senza la sciocchezza del Movimento il #governoDraghi avrebbe proseguito

Nobody really knows if #NordStream1 goes back online, but the bigger picture is clear: #Russia is tightening the screws with a slow-motion gas cutoff. And Russia will have to continue to tighten: The European energy crisis is one of the few successes of #Putin in this war. 1/
The underlying motivation for #Putin for cutting off gas is only becoming stronger: 1.) The West's role in the Ukraine war is increasing. It may not have been crucial in the first phase, but it is important now, and over time, Ukraine will be fighting mostly with Western arms. 2/
Motivation 2.): #Russia will fall into a deep economic crisis towards the end of the year, the situation will be much worse than now, and Putin needs a crisis in the West for his propaganda to work with if he doesn't want to look weak. 3/

[thread] Il #gas è diventato un combustibile verde? La #tassonomia dà il via libera al metano, nonostante la sua combustione produca CO2 e perdite di CH4 durante il trasporto? Davvero l’Europa ha ceduto al #greenwashing? NO. Vediamo perché 1/n

"Die #Energiestrategie 2050 ist auf Sand gebaut", sagt der Präsident der Netzbetreibergesellschaft #Swissgas, André Dosé, in der @NZZ: "Es handelte sich um eine Träumerei, die so oder so nie funktioniert hätte", meint er zum Konzept von #Bundesrat und Parlament. (1/5) Image
Der #Ukraine-Krieg zwinge die Schweiz nun dazu, "auf dramatische Weise umzudenken", erklärt Dosé: "Ich habe nicht den Eindruck, dass man sich hierzulande bewusst ist, wie gefährlich die Situation ist". Man verkenne die Tragweite der Probleme "in fundamentaler Weise". (2/5)
"Wir haben ein riesiges Problem", stellt der Swissgas-Präsident fest. Es brauche "nur ganz wenig", dass im Winter in der Schweiz sowohl #Gas wie auch #Strom knapp werden könnten. Diese Situation sei selbstverschuldet, betont Dosé. (3/5)

Thread: andiamo al solo, senza fuffa:

Ma perché dobbiamo disimpegnarci dal #gas dalla #Russia se

1) Tolto un fornitore dal mercato, i prezzi energia salgono, e con essi i ricavi della Russia. Quindi il disimpegno finanzia la guerra
2) Ce lo avrebbero continuato a fornire in quantità se non avessimo, noi, prima minacciato e poi ritirato #Sanzioni
3) Non abbiamo alternative per 2/3 anni. Tutti gli accordi sono di carta:

3a) la #Libia ha gasdotti limitati per la Sicilia ed alzerà il prezzo (facendo guadagnare anche alla Russia che gestisce con #gazprom parte del gas della Libia..il gioco dell'oca.

❗️ This is huge: 🇺🇦 Ambassador in 🇩🇪 @MelnykAndrij turns to @Europarl_EN and voices strong concerns about the #EUTaxonomy proposal to label #gas as #green.

👉 He says it's clear #Russia will profit through the Act, and speaks of a "fatal signal" to 🇺🇦. A 🧵 1/6
@MelnykAndrij @Europarl_EN @LudekNie @Urmaspaet @ijabs @nicustefanuta @KGroselj @guyverhofstadt @LeszekMiller @Andi_Glueck @susanasolisp @hildevautmans .@MelnykAndrij has been one of #Germany's most vocal voices to push the 🇩🇪 government towards more help for #Ukraine.

In his letter, he thanks MEP @ViolavonCramon for supporting sanctions on 🇷🇺 #energy, given 🇷🇺 "considerable income through sale of #naturalgas" to the #EU. 2/6
Melnyk cites the #Russian energy minister who said that 🇷🇺 gas industry sees a "range of opportunities" through the #EUTaxonomy, while #LNG terminals are excluded. Its conditions thus "clearly favour #Russian #gas." @ijabs @CiolosDacian 3/6

I did some more calculations regarding #power supply in #France. Unfortually, my initial estimation turned out too optimistic. If #EDF does not get at least 15GW of #nuclear back to the grid, we are very likely to see forceful disconnections or rolling #blackout|s this winter
🧵
As usual, during Winter the situation in France is always narrow. On the 6th of January at 8am, even 9.2GW of #gas was insufficient, requiring 9,4GW of imports to manage 84.4GW of load. This was when France had about 51GW of nuclear available.
CW 2/2022 was similar
Right now we are sitting on just ~28GW. That's 23GW missing!

The highest import I found was 13,5GW (highest export: 17,7GW).

Given that the avg. import on these days was ~5GW, less than 39GW avail. nuclear capacity would very likely make a 84GW scenario impossible to handle!
