Transition on a Bumpy Ride: Will Technology or Economics Provide the Solution?

Never a dull moment…

From the time of the 1st All Things Energy Forum of July 2021, energy has offered huge excitement, keeping businesses and policy makers continuously on the alert.

As last year, uncertainty is the key characteristic, but with the focus of public attention now being on the energy crisis and geopolitical dangers, with the pandemic still a threat but somewhat retreating.

Technology can, and does, facilitate the energy transition

Economics and Green Finance present a great challenge for energy operators and especially investors:

The 2nd All Things Energy Forum will highlight all the recent concerns following the energy sector. How technology can make the big turn over and how the constant rise in prices affects the policies of energy operators and especially investors as well as how green policies around the world could find common ground in the new economic and geopolitical setup that also emphasizes energy security.


The current situation

  • Automation, smart grids and storage are becoming an important complement to renewables and demand management
  • CSP with 6-9 hours of storage can now compete with fossil fuels
  • nuclear, especially smaller-scale and/or floating, appears promising and the ‘holy grail’ of fusion has had a major breakthrough at the UK-based JET laboratory
  • hydrogen and carbon utilization and storage had huge momentum in 2021: project pipelines ballooned, new policies and funding pots were announced and COP26 spurred net-zero targets and hydrogen is being called upon to gradually take up the role of hydrocarbons

Economics and Green Finance present a great challenge for energy operators and especially investors:

  • The prices of energy products eg coal, oil, gas, uranium, CO2 emissions and, indirectly, freight rates have been rapidly increasing, some to record levels
  • As a result, energy-intensive manufacturing and the transport industry are facing tremendous energy price increases – or even shortages
  • Geopolitics, whether in the form of crises are in fact exacerbating the energy crisis. In fact, due to current global demand and recent geopolitical tension [Russia/Ukraine], it is likely for energy prices to increase and stay volatile for the foreseeable future


Key Issues

Will energy demand continue its recent growth? How can a system designed for ‘normal times’ cope with today’s simultaneous crises? Is an electrical system aiming at ‘RES-only’ sufficiency feasible without adequate storage, the current delays in the supply chain and the weaning off Russian energy? For how long will natural gas continue to be necessary as a transition fuel? Where will the trillions needed for a Green-Deal overhaul of energy production, storage, transmission and distribution/connectivity come from – and which other uses of funds will they compete against? Are funds branded as green or ethical always legitimate?

In such a setup, the effects of Climate-change policies on businesses are very different between:

environmentally-pioneering countries, notably the EU and EFTA countries such as Norway, where the Green Deal legislature is, on the one hand, advancing eg with the ETS being extended to shipping and construction, but on the other governments find themselves obliged to impose mitigating measures eg decarbonization deadline delays, energy rebates to businesses [and households] or acceptance of gas and nuclear as ‘financeable’ technologies in the EU Taxonomy, albeit with restrictions; it will come as no surprise if tools such as company-to-company power purchase agreements [PPAs] would face difficulties eg in covering durations as long as 10 years


lagging countries such as China, Russia, India, Japan and Turkey which apply Climate-change policies more laxly and with longer deadlines; the result ia is unfair competition with the ‘pioneers’, hence EU businesses such as cement, steel and aluminum are keenly following developments in the CBAM legislature.
