1/ The earnings call season is underway and we started publishing Earnings Call Summaries last week. Coal availability is not looking good. Peabody Energy (#BTU) said they were unable to ship 23% of July month-to-date (thru Jul 28) customer nominations due to #Rail service issues
2/ As a #NaturalGas and #electricity analyst, I don’t really know what the term “customer nominations” means in the #coal business. That makes me ripe for substitution bias, which was discussed in LCMC’s January 2019 NG Research Dinner through #Tversky and #Kahneman’s work.
3/ Irrelevant detail? Here’s a counterpoint: 90% of Best Picture Academy Award (Oscar) "nominations" don't make it to the stage – context matters.

NEW REPORT: Europe can ELIMINATE reliance on Russian #NaturalGas by augmenting #REPowerEU plans w/temporary boost in coal & recalibrated gas storage.
ZERO Lab modeled 🇪🇺+🇬🇧 gas & electric grids & find several paths to secure full independence from 🇷🇺 gas:…
2. Success depends on larger reductions in gas-fired electricity generation by temporarily increasing coal use (a trend we're already seeing…), reducing electricity demand & accelerating renewable energy deployment. Multiple combos of these three can work.
3. Despite increased reliance on coal for electricity generation, all successful gas independence scenarios result in significant declines in European greenhouse gas emissions as lower gas demand offsets emissions from increased coal combustion.

❗️ 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

Spain and Portugal hoped to cut energy bills by capping the the price of #naturalgas in day-ahead power auctions. The policy has been condemned as a failure, but the story is more nuanced than that. A mini-🧵
A deeper look at Iberian energy flows and prices suggests the cap is alleviating the worst effects of a demand spike & solar/wind output flop. It obvs doesn't help that gas is unbelievably expensive in EU right now. This pushes up the adjustment cost payment to CCGTs
The gas cap could also improve EU energy security by encouraging an influx of #naturalgas and #LNG into the Iberian peninsula which is then re-exported as #electricity into France - which is facing extremely tight capacity margins due to widespread nuclear outages

Our new modelling report from @DavidSuzukiFDN shows that 100% zero-emissions electricity across Canada by 2035 is possible, reliable and affordable.

Buckle up for a #CleanElectricity thread 🧵…

#Climate #energytwitter #cdnpoli
This is the first modelling report of its kind in Canada. It goes beyond #NetZero to reach #ZeroEmissions by 2035, primarily by relying on:

☀️#Renewables like wind & solar
🌊Existing #Hydropower
🔌More grid connections between regions
Overall, Canada's electricity capacity grows by 2.8x by 2050, and the amount of electrical energy we use grows by 1.8x

All #FossilFuels on the grid are phased out by 2035, including all #NaturalGas. And no nuclear or fossils with #CCUS are needed.

Fransız ve İtalyan enerji devleri ENGIE ve ENI Rusya'dan aldıkları gazı ruble ile ödemeyi kabul ettiler. ENGIE'nin %33'ü Fransız devletine, ENI'nin %30'u İtalyan devletine ait. Yani özel(!) şirketler vasıtasıyla Avrupa kendi koyduğu ambargoyu deliyor.
Oysa Avrupa Komisyonu'na göre Rus para biriminde hesap açmak yaptırımların ihlalidir ve Brüksel tarafından cezai işlemlere yol açar. Yani Avrupalılar Putin'i soykırım dahil her türlü insanlık suçu ile itham ederken Rusya'dan gaz almak için GazpromBank'ta ruble hesabı açıyorlar.

Hydrogen '2x as powerful a greenhouse gas as thought before': UK govt study

Global Warming potential (GWP) of #hydrogen is between 6 & 16, 11 the ave — GWP of CO2 is 1. Previous 2001 study put GWP of hydrogen at 5.8…
“Any leakage of H2 will result in an indirect global warming, offsetting greenhouse gas emission reductions made as a result of a switch from fossil fuel to H2,”

"much smaller molecule than #methane.. much more easily leak from existing #naturalgas pipelines if used to carry H2"
report does not take into account GWP of PRODUCING hydrogen, only impact of H2 released into atmosphere

electrolysis production of H2 wld result in 9.2% leakage frm “venting & purging”, but this wld fall to 0.52% “with full recombination from purging & crossover venting”.

The Russian #Ruble (RUB) is poised to become a dangerous global currency & here is a 🧵 explaining why.

The Central Bank of the #RussianFederation just profoundly altered the international trade & monetary system by linking the Russian ruble to both gold (XAU) & commodities.
By offering to buy XAU from Russian banks at a fixed price of 5000RUB/gram, the Central Bank of Russia has ties the ruble to XAU. And by extension, to the dollar (XAU is traded in U$D)

President #Putin’s Full Remarks at the #Oil for #Ruble announcement | The Vineyard of the Saker

#Russia #oil #gas #commodities…
“Today I have signed an Executive Order that establishes the rules for #trade in Russian #NaturalGas with so-called unfriendly states. We offer counterparties from such countries a clear and transparent scheme. To purchase Russian natural gas, they must open ruble accounts…”
What we are witnessing here (potentially) is nothing less than the gradual conversion of the Russian ruble from a “soft” to a “hard” currency. Students in my international business class will appreciate the significance of this.

1/8 Russia is demanding that European buyers pay for their gas in roubles. The driver for that is the freezing of #Russian foreign reserves and the #sanctions on the central bank.
#SanctionsRussia #NaturalGas #EnergyCrisis
2/8 Nominally, buying Russian gas is not banned, but that supposes that Russia will accept currency instruments it can't sell to support the rouble.
3/8 Hence the strange-sounding alternative to straight rouble payments that Russia has proposed: Gazprom's clients would open rouble accounts with Russian banks, but still pay in EUR or USD.

What is the impact of the rapidly evolving #UkraineWar on #supplychains? We've published @Flexport reports on the topic. First #airfreight where the issues are routing, capacity and sanctions (1/6)…
The main issue for #airfreight is route changes. Airspace closures are forcing more jets through narrower routes, which has added c3% to Asia-Europe transit times. (2/6)
For #supplychains more broadly the main issue is pricing of commodities with oil, natural gas, wheat and selected metals all having gotten more expensive. That's come as supply chain #inflation had already been rising. (3/6)…

A Alemanha sinalizou uma reviravolta nas principais políticas energéticas neste domingo, flutuando a possibilidade de estender a vida útil do #carvão e até mesmo das usinas nucleares para reduzir a dependência do #gas russo⤵️
A principal economia da Europa está sob pressão de outras nações ocidentais para se tornar menos dependente do gás russo, mas seus planos de eliminar gradualmente as usinas a carvão até 2030 e fechar suas usinas nucleares até o final de 2022 a deixaram com poucas opções⤵️
Em um discurso histórico no domingo, o chanceler Olaf Scholz definiu um caminho mais radical para garantir que o país a seja capaz de atender ao aumento do fornecimento de #energia e diversificar para longe do gás russo, que responde por metade das necessidades energéticas⤵️

BREAKING: A gloomy, overcast day in #Kiev. #Ukraine's capital stands precariously at the edge of #war. #Russian president Vladimir #Putin declared a military offensive earlier today. There are reports of shelling, air strikes and casualties across Ukraine. A developing 🧵. 1/
Speaking to @SkyNewsBreak, a former Vice PM of #Ukraine warned that Putin won't stop at Kyiv. She reported shelling and bombing in Kyiv, where she resides, and appealed for swift, decisive action from the West. Notably, she mentioned the #SWIFT payments system as a tool. 2/
No one can doubt the resolve of the Ukrainian people in the face of adversity. But their #military is no match for #Russia. So cutting them off from the SWIFT payments settlement system could force the Russians into stepping back. But will the #US and #EU take that step? 3/

What's going on with Russia and Ukraine?

@JacobShap breaks it all down for us

- Russia does not want to fight a war, but in order to force political and security concessions, it must convince the West that it’s prepared to fight.
-The implications of a full-scale Russian invasion would impact #oil, #naturalgas, #fertilizer, nickel, and wheat prices

-Russia has deployed over 100k soldiers to its border. According to the DoD, Russia is ready to invade with the goal of conquering the entire country
-According to Reuters, Russia has even shipped blood and medical supplies to the frontlines.

To counter the threat, the US has placed 8,500 troops on “heightened alert” (That’s less than 10% of Russia’s deployed strength… Putin must be terrified).

High European gas prices has many reasons but one factor seems to be Gazprom's low storage fill in Europe. Is that really true? Let us look at the facts of @Gazprom's storage situation in Europe. 1/...

#EU #NaturalGas
Friendly reminder: The EU imports 33% of its natural gas consumption from Russia, i.e. Gazprom! So if gas is short in Europe, Gazprom does matter. 2/...
So can we measure the storage percentage fill of Gazprom? Yes, once we identified its locations. Specifically, they are Rehden, Etzel, Jemgum, Katharina in Germany, Haidach in Austria, Bergermeer in NL, Damborice in Czech & Banatski Dvor in Serbia. 3/..

Let's look at the EU gas situation (ex Serbia, Ukraine, Norway, CH). Overall, the seasonal %-fill for EU members (below) is lowest in a decade (yellow line). That will not change as we show below. Train left the station.

#NaturalGas #Europe
Meanwhile, the withdrawals of natural gas are coming in seasonally the earliest in a decade! Again, yellow line. If that trajetory (in GWh/d) remains, EU gas prices will hit record soon again. IMHO, a likely. We will see.
So is the gas coming overproportionally in? Answer: no, overall injection rate (in GWh/d) is in fact seasonally low. Only 2011 & 2012 were lower. However, ...
