To do the unthinkable: cut off imports of Russian oil and gas, which have been flowing to the West through all manner of crises for decades.

Russia currently gets €400m per day from gas sales. No way of rerouting this supply to other markets. Een plafond voor de olieprijzen.

Paying in rubles is… a breach of the contract. First open departure from the dollar based system? An unsettled world.

Shipping companies know that they can save carbon taxes and carbon tariffs if they shift to hydrogen-electric ships. Waterstof als energiedrager

Energy is not simply about choosing the right technology. Transitioning to green energy has economic and geopolitical dimensions as well. Draait Rusland de gaskraan dicht?

There is no way that the world can avoid major upheavals as it remakes the entire energy system, which is the lifeblood of the global economy and underpins the geopolitical order.

European natural gas prices continue to go nuts. Russia is increasingly seen as treating its energy assets as political tools. We cannot confront a threat we don’t understand.

China continues to stake its claim as the world’s biggest proponent of new nuclear energy technology, connecting its first small modular reactor to the power grid.

The efficient storage of energy can be obtained through the development of mining technologies in outer space, and hence, astronautics in general. A China and Russia moon base.

Energy crisis of 2021-2022: Covid-19 and supply chain disruptions, greater interconnectedness of natural gas markets and signs of energy price volatility.

A renewed trade war between the U.S. and China, the rising dollar, soaring inflation with rising interest rates are all long term systemic risks for energy markets. Gasprijzen in Europa.

How to harness the fusion reaction that powers the sun to generate clean, limitless electricity on Earth.

Nuclear is enjoying – well not love, perhaps – not even adoration, but at least a grudging affection.

Houses right on top of the gas field going gas-free seems like a clear sign the heat transition has arrived in the Netherlands.

Governments and companies have built the global energy system around natural gas almost without a second thought. In a crisis, natural gas is just as variable as renewables.

The current price trajectory is the result of supply moderating while demand heads skyward. Rising energy prices, gasprijzen en huishoudens.

The surge of post-pandemic consumer demand, that could blow the global economy off course. A supply chain crisis: the perfect storm.

Climate policy is shifting oil consumption. As green energy gets cheaper, oil companies could try to pump even more, so as to flood the world with cheap oil. Opec+ and decarbonization.

Grid operators today are aware of solar storms and their risks, politicians who determine our spending priorities aren’t. We need to upgrade the electrical grid infrastructure.

Making the switch by electrifying large parts of our economy and changing the supply of all that electricity from polluting fuels to clean energy. Protecting lives by improving the air we breathe in our homes and workplaces.

A new ocean has opened, and free men must sail it. Nuclear power is a new ocean of energy. It will power the human future. 

Fusion rockets and compact power plants could allow us to expand into and past our Solar System, faster and further.

Despite the safety and technical maturity of nuclear power, solar PV power has prevailed. Because it is simple. What does energy look like in 2040? Post-scarcity, almost too cheap to meter. Containerized batteries and solar panels proliferate. Clean air. Continuing economic growth. Long live the Sun! Why we can’t electrify everything.
