1/ Welcome to the bi-weekly #CleanTechEU thread!🧵👇

This week is a dive into the recently adopted #hydrogen delegated act on #additionality, what we asked for, why, and what made it to the final text & what got lost in compromises.🔎
2/ 1st things 1st: making #RenewableHydrogen means needing #RenewableElectricity ⚡️

When connecting an electrolyser to most of #EU’s electricity grids, the #H2 produced will have a very high #CarbonFootprint🏭👣 Image
3/ But, this can be fixed. Here are a few rules that can ensure that #hydrogen produced on the grid has a minimal climate impact:

New paper from me & @LenSeabrooke just out in @Gov_Journal "Professional ecologies in European sustainable finance".

We investigate how actors influence expert groups tasked with developing new policy framework on #EU #sustainablefinance?

A thread.… Image
Greening finance has been high on the agenda of for long time. We investigate the formation of the @EU_Commission sustainable finance agenda through activity in/around the HLEG and TEG on sustainable finance. Who has influence over the policy framework?
Our (theoretical) starting point to understand how actors influence expert groups is to view those active as members belonging to professional ecologies. They can be supported by a capacity to influence from either official mandate, scientific esteem, or claims to experience.

@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit there's a lot of #greenwashing in the financial industry, this is why there's the need for a taxonomy, says @ph_lamberts starting his speech

#fossilgas #fossilfuels #climatecrisis #climatefinance #greenfinance #sustainablefinance @GreensEFA
@Bellona_EU @ClimateBonds @andytuit @ph_lamberts @GreensEFA we need to block the CDA-Climate Delegated Act because we want a label that is reliable, we need reliable market infos, if we include gas and nuclear we're distorting the market, says @ph_lamberts

After quick reading @environmentca new Emissions Reduction Plan, two major (& predictable) blindspots have emerged. A short 🧵 #ERP #cdnpoli #climatecrisis 1/7
2/7 FINANCE: describes modest historical process, without providing any path forward for aligning financial regulations with #ParisAgreement for regulated finance institutions/crowns, mandatory #ClimateRisk disclosure, stronger capital adequacy requirements, mandate changes, etc
3/7 FINANCE: Under #SFAC, finance institutions are regulating themselves. Major Canadian #banks lobby against mandatory #climaterisk disclosure & are #greenwashing #sustainablefinance - major policy reforms are needed & are missing here.…

As #UkraineRussiaWar continues, and @IPCC_CH publishes it latest #Climate report, we take a closer look at the energy policy measures Europeans can take to weaken both Putin and climate disruption.
Take a look at the most efficient measures we have found so far 👇
First, #EnergySufficiency measures (in plain English: stop wasting energy) are by far the best. Quick to implement. Efficient. Cost-effective. They should become a national security priority and give ideas for people to tangibly #StandWithUkraine in those dark days.
Second, #EnergyEfficiency targeting oil/gas heating buildings is a must. It however takes time to be rolled-out to significantly impact our dependence. All the more reason to start now!

95% of people are chasing meme coins

But few are looking at one of the biggest long-term opportunities in crypto...

A deep dive into how $XRP is building a frictionless decentralized liquidity pool for the world 🌍

(Not financial advice)

/THREAD/ Image
1/ The problem:

“With today’s internet of information you can’t store, move, transact value without a powerful intermediary. And that’s what blockchains solve”

Quoted by @dontapscott a leader in the decentralized blockchain revolution Image
@dontapscott 2/ Before blockchain

The internet had a problem with transferring $ value peer to peer

The only 2 options for sending money were:

1. Send $ using a cross border payment via bank transfers
2. Use a 3rd party and trust a stranger with private information

Lets dive into those👇 Image

🚨Thread alert🚨
I spent most of last year studying #sustainablefinance. The results are now out in a report for @Academie_be & SFPI-FPIM. Here's the gist (🧵, 1/n):…
1) the philosopher's stone of sustainable finance is figuring out how to distinguish sustainable from non-sustainable investments. (2/n)
If you get that distinction right, you can do anything: labels/standards, penalising/supporting factors, subsidies/taxes, mandatory portfolio allocations, even direct public investment, etc. You'd have a guidance system, a GPS, to steer all the other tools. (3/n)

Most Cdn business media coverage around Biden has focused on Keystone. But that misses major shifts taking place in US/globally on climate risk disclosure, which will have far bigger impacts on Cdn economy/regulatory regime than the fate of a single project (thread)
Canada has been slow walking the last few years when it comes to requirements on climate risk/corporate disclosure. Organizations continue to underestimate how quickly the landscape can shift. Consider what’s happened since Monday, following election being called for Biden.

1/ With financial innovations such as #sustainablefinance and #impactinvesting increasingly viewed as key to the solution of current social and environmental crises, let’s take a look at how we got here, what might be problematic about that and what to do about it. 👇
2/ This is a thread about the empirical part of my book that traces the history of #socinv in the UK. I’ll leave the theoretical argument based on Fligstein & McAdam’s strategic action field theory & pragmatist action theory for another time.…
3/ Financial innovations such as #impinv or #socinv mean that firms succeed to make money from financial intermediation where they haven’t done before. To do so, these firms have to make others participate: investees wanting finance, gov to regulate (and often subsidize), etc.
