“Even if those Chinese buyers end up reselling many of the cargoes to the highest bidders in Europe — as they did in the past year — they would still be taking charge over a hefty chunk of the crucial fuel. That’s a trend seen in many commodities, from copper to rare earth metals.”

“Yemen’s crude oil exports look set to remain suspended until an improvement in security conditions allows a restart, and that will likely depend on the outcome of ongoing talks between Saudi Arabia and Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels to end the seven-year war in the country, several sources tell Energy Intelligence. After an uneasy truce expired in October, Houthi drones struck Yemeni loading terminals at Bir Ali and Ash Shihr on the Gulf of Aden, including one attack which occurred while a tanker was loading at Ash Shihr.”

“Endless delays stop firms that want to invest from breaking ground. This has long been an obstacle to new projects in America and Europe; the worrying thing is that some places are going backwards. Denmark is a star in offshore wind. But on February 6th it stopped processing all applications for such projects, after a dawning realisation that it may be in breach of eu law. The gains from cutting red tape are large. The International Energy Agency, an official forecaster, estimates that renewables generation would rise by an extra 25% by 2027 if bureaucratic and financing barriers were removed.”

“In 2022, global investments in energy transition technologies – renewable energy, energy efficiency, electrified transport and heat, energy storage, hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) – reached USD 1.3 trillion despite the prevailing macroeconomic, geopolitical and supply chain challenges. Global investments were up 19% from 2021 levels, and 50% from 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic. This trend demonstrates a growing recognition of the climate crisis and energy security risks associated with over-reliance on fossil fuels. Yet, the current pace of investment is not sufficient; annual investments need to at least quadruple. Keeping the world on track to achieving the energy transition in line with the 1.5°C Scenario laid out in IRENA’s World energy transitions outlook 2022 will require annual investments of USD 5.7 trillion on average between 2021 and 2030, and USD trillion 3.7 between 2031 and 2050”

Renewable energy has been demonstrated to be causally related to economic development in a number of studies. There is a mutually beneficial relationship between environmental development and the economy’s growth proposed in this paper. Countries in the development progress consider their debt obligations as well as a nation’s current policy and institutional framework before deciding whether to provide assistance. An effective framework is determined by the degree to which a framework promotes income generation, economic stability, and the efficient utilization of assistance for growth. Political regimes are primarily responsible for poverty, which is the basis of the debate regarding the effectiveness of foreign aid.
