Green Exporting: United Arab Emirates
This article focuses on the potential for green trade between the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Thin Shoots of Green Growth
The United Kingdom has made considerable progress in decarbonizing the generation of electricity in recent decades. State intervention may have helped this transition, but the decline in the coal industry and the growth in wind power capacity through subsidy schemes have meant that the low-hanging fruit is all but picked and the real challenge and cost lie ahead as the transport, construction, and household heating sectors electrify. It has been estimated that electricity generation in the UK needs to rise to meet the demand from these sectors from around 300 TWh to around 550 to 680 TWh by 2050.
“Push Me, Pull You!” Subsidies, Taxes, and Storage
It is difficult to understand the logic behind Britain’s policy toward renewable energy. To meet its plans for a low-carbon economy it has been estimated that Britain requires £1.4 trillion of investment to fund its transition to net zero by 2050 , but in the recent budget, the government has announced plans to tax excess profits at a rate of 45% of some renewable energy companies who have been the recipients of past public support to induce investment to raise generating capacity. According to the statement by Jeremy Hunt justifying the decision: “The structure of our energy markets creates windfall profits for low-carbon electricity generation. “
Reform wholesale electricity pricing before the next crisis
In this paper we argue that the United Kingdom is evolving from a hierarchical vertical linear electricity system to a decentralised complex system. However, as the electricity system’s structural complexity increased, there has been no attempt to modify a broken regulatory system where the politically sensitive price-capped retail price for energy is based on distorted national wholesale prices which no longer reflect actual local market supply or demand conditions for electricity nor provide the correct market signals necessary to attract investment to meet net-zero targets.
Sky News on the importance of batteries
Sky News reports that batteries will become increasingly important to the energy grid as the UK transitions to green energy. Power storage will also become more critical as our electric demand increases.
Stagflation and Net Zero
It is popular to blame the invasion of Ukraine on rising energy inflation, particularly oil and gas prices, but there are sound structural reasons why the cost of generating electricity from these sources will continue to rise globally in the coming years.
EnviroTech’s Energy Station wins award for the most innovative energy project
