⚡️ The draft reformed @Energy_Charter Treaty is not aligned with the rapid phase-out of #FossilFuels that science shows is required to avoid #climate catastrophe. @vdbam, @LSchaugg & @AnzizuDe have the details: energytransition.org/2022/07/the-ne… #ParisAgreement #COP27 #ClimateEmergency
⚡️ #Europe is turning to #Africa to reduce its dependency on Russian #oil & #gas. But the move is problematic, as producing #fossilfuels on that continent presents its own challenges, write @noah_gordon_ & Theodora Mattei: energytransition.org/2022/07/russia… @HBSNairobi @boellza @hbsNigeria
⚡️ Recent @IPCC_CH assessments desperately warned of the need to get off #FossilFuels. @LMicalBuchsbaum reflects on how #Europe’s desperate attempts to find alternative #FossilFuel sources may end up turbo-charging #climate chaos: energytransition.org/2022/07/the-mo… #COP27 #ClimateCrisis
⚡️ Pressure on the #FossilFuel industry to phase out production of #coal, #oil & #gas is steadily increasing. Yet, global #finance needs to send a clear message to the industry that its days are numbered, writes @solarpaddy: energytransition.org/2022/07/gfanz-… @ReclaimFinance #GFANZ #COP27
⚡️ Greenwashed: the European Parliament didn't object the inclusion of fossil #gas & #nuclearenergy in the #EUTaxonomy. Austria, Luxembourg and several NGOs are preparing for lawsuits. Read more on the general state of #greenwashing and the prospect for litigation against it 👇twitter.com/EnergiewendeGE…j
⚡️ @AkritiBhargava, Karla Martínez Toral & @aradhna91 explore what constitutes #greenwashing practices, how these have been challenged in European courts and some implications for litigation of the #EUTaxonomy: energytransition.org/2022/06/climat… #NotMyTaxonomy @GRI_LSE @UNEP_FI @EU_Finance

⚡️ As #Russia’s war turns into a global humanitarian crisis, #FossilFuels companies are wrenching as much shareholder value as possible. @LMicalBuchsbaum describes how the US seeks to gain more markets for their #LNG sector: energytransition.org/2022/06/insane… #methane #CutMethane #gas #oil
⚡️ #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine has led to global fluctuations in #CrudeOil prices. The higher crude #oil prices are, the higher #gasprices are likely to be. @ajalasamuelakin on how these circumstances affect #Nigeria: energytransition.org/2022/06/how-th… @hbsNigeria #gas #EnergyCrisis
⚡️ The #Caribbean is facing the brunt of #EnergyCrisis & #ClimateCrisis, with increasing extreme weather events, rising sea levels + very high #electricity & #energy prices. Why has the region not adopted a more sustainable energy policy? Rebecca Bertram: energytransition.org/2022/06/the-ca…
⚡️ Despite uniting against #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine, #EU countries continue pouring ever more money into the Kremlin’s war machine. @LMicalBuchsbaum reviews a new tool by @EurBeyondCoal that illustrates this bloody tradeoff: energytransition.org/2022/06/recoun… @CREACleanAir
⚡️ #WindEnergy is key for #Germany’s #Energiewende, and to curtail 🇪🇺’s dependency o#Russiaia'#FossilFuelsls. How to boos#offshorewindnd expansion while preserving marine environments? ✍️🏻 Leona Schmitenergytransition.org/2022/06/balanc…q#GlobalWindDayD@BWEeVE@WindEuropeo@GWECGlobalWindind
⚡️ #Africa’s #EnergyTransition and decarbonisation is hampered by the consequences of #Russia’s invasion of #Ukraine, as well as by increasing and worsening extreme weather events, writes Michael Davies-Venn: energytransition.org/2022/06/russia… @HBSNairobi @hbsNigeria @boellza #ClimateCrisis
⚡️ #COVID19 triggered measures for sustainable #mobility in #Zimbabwe. But governmental actions to fade out #fossilfuels in this sector have not yet become effective, thus transition to cleaner vehicles still faces hurdles. @ken_nyavaya reports: energytransition.org/2022/06/from-s… @boellza
🟢#Russiaa’s war against#Ukrainee means#Europee has to look elsewhere to secure its#energyy supplies.#GreenHydrogenn could be an important new fuel, and here#LatinAmericaa has the potential to become 🇪🇺's next partner. ✍️🏻 Rebecca Bertrenergytransition.org/2022/06/green-…7#hydrogeno#H2 #H2
⚡️ One of #Nigeria’s silent #energy crises is the lack of access to clean cooking. #Women & girls bear the cost of fetching firewood, a traditional cooking method, inhaling most of the deadly smoke. @ajalasamuelakin takes a closer look: energytransition.org/2022/06/enhanc… @hbsNigeria
⚡️ #FossilFuels companies use the obscure #ISDS tool to protect their investors, which could jeopardize global #ClimateAction efforts – and cost countries billions. @Thrasher_Rachel, @BAlexSimmons & @KylaTienhaara discuss the issue: energytransition.org/2022/05/how-tr… #EnergyTransition
⚡️ Liquified Natural Gas is being promoted as a solution to end Europe’s dependency on Russian gas. The new report “#LNG: The liquid path to #climate chaos” by @foeeurope & @FoodWaterEurope raises a number of reasons to be sceptical about it: energytransition.org/2022/05/26663/ @eilidhrobb03
⚡️ @HockenosPaul interviews one of #Germany’s foremost #energy conservation experts, @StefanMBuettner, who says that companies can save #energy & production costs more easily than they think: energytransition.org/2022/05/energy… @Uni_Stuttgart @UNECE @AgoraEW #EnergyTransition #Energiewende
⚡️ #Energy saving measures that could immediately decrease energy demand range from the individual level to the European – and most of them aren’t rocket science, writes @HockenosPaul: energytransition.org/2022/05/can-sa… #EnergyEfficiency #EnergyTransition @dena_news @circulareconomy
⚡️ #Russia’s invasion of #Ukraine has sparked a wide-ranging revamping of #energy policy in #Europe with a new, far-reaching objective: to rapidly wean 🇪🇺 from Russia#FossilFuelsls and accelerate the gree#EnergyTransitionon. Paul Hockenos explainsenergytransition.org/2022/05/since-…bv
⚡️ In the face of setbacks, the global #climate movement is at loose ends. Rather than doubt itself, it has to buildout its prodigious achievements with the kind of #nonviolent #activism that has proved so effective, writes @HockenosPaul: energytransition.org/2022/05/the-cl… #ClimateCrisis
⚡️ Discussions on #sustainability often focus on the end products, overlooking #SupplyChains. A recent @IEA report underlined the need for sustainability criteria for #minerals used in #renewableenergies. Bernadinus Steni has the details: energytransition.org/2022/04/energy… #SoutheastAsia
⚡️ #Germany’s largest #oil & #gas company, #Wintershall Dea is still reluctant to cut ties w/ #Russia. @GheorghiuAndy explains how its deep-rooted ties w/ state-controlled #Gazprom –incl. #NordStream– have also deepened 🇩🇪's dependence on �#fossilfuelsuelenergytransition.org/2022/05/winter…JYJT
⚡️ #Honduras' #energy sector urgently requires rebuilding & infrastructural expansion. New president @XiomaraCastroZ promised to generate 70% of #electricity needs from #renewables. Rebecca Bertram discusses perspectives & obstacles: energytransition.org/2022/04/new-ho… @HBSsansalvador
⚡️ The #EU announced plans to ramp up #biogas production to replace up to 20% of #Russia|n #gas imports by 2030. This alternative could be used for heating, industrial processes & #electricity generation. ✍🏼 Joelle Thomas:energytransition.org/2022/04/bettin…0 @European_Biogass#biomethanee
