La rubrica settimanale con i consigli di lettura di RivistaEnergia.it, dall’Europa e dal mondo. Forse non le notizie più eclatanti, ma proprio per questo interessanti da approfondire. Settimana 48/2023

“The U.N. climate summit clinched an early victory Thursday, with delegates adopting a new fund to help poor nations cope with costly climate disasters. COP28 President Sultan Ahmed al-Jaber said the decision sent a “positive signal of momentum to the world and to our work here in Dubai.” In establishing the fund on the first day of the two-week COP28 conference, delegates opened the door for governments to announce contributions.”

“A high-profile global effort to use satellites to track and halt methane emissions announced its first successful and confirmed mitigation, as governments around the world race to curb releases of the potent greenhouse gas responsible for roughly 30% of the Earth’s warming. Scientists working for the United Nations’ International Methane Emissions Observatory in March spotted a leak in satellite data in Argentina, and relayed that information to government officials who quickly shared the data with the responsible operator. The energy company, which wasn’t identified, found that a heat exchanger had suffered ruptured tubes causing the potent greenhouse gas to leak and quickly conducted repairs.”

“OPEC+ agreed to a significant production cut of another million barrels a day, delegates said, in a move that will likely send prices higher amid the continuing conflict in the Middle East. As part of the deal reached Thursday, Saudi Arabia also agreed to extend its cut of 1 million barrels a day that it announced in June. Taken together, the moves are expected to push prices up at a moment when geopolitical tensions are high, especially in the Middle East.”

“In recent years, the concept of green jobs has been the focus of increasing attention from both policy and research circles. At the EU policy level, the green transition is seen as an opportunity to create jobs in existing and emerging economic sectors. The need for re- and upskilling workers to ensure a socially just green and digital transition is also increasingly being highlighted in the policy debate. Despite this renewed surge in interest, partly propelled by the necessity to mitigate the impacts of the climate crisis as well as external shocks such as the Covid-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the notion of green jobs is not a recent one. A large number of different approaches to how green jobs can be defined and classified have been put forward in the past few decades. While these definitions and taxonomies display certain overlaps, often in terms of a focus on jobs in the Environmental Goods and Services Sector, key analytical differences compromise the comparability of assessments”

“Russia’s weaponization of gas supplies caused a shock to the energy security of Central and Eastern Europe in 2022. Countries responded by increasing alternative energy supplies and developing new natural gas supply routes, namely through increased LNG import capacity and new interconnectors. At the same time, market forces in the form of higher prices largely ensured an efficient allocation of scarce gas across the region and encouraged the necessary savings. We examine how gas flows to and within the region have been changing in the short- and medium-term and explore the role of renewable and nuclear energy as well as hydrogen in the long-term. We conclude that mitigating the effects of this shock requires the EU to prioritize policies that foster the integrity of its energy market. Government policies and higher fossil fuel prices will encourage the build-up of renewables, increasing energy security medium term. Only in combination with consistently high energy savings and the procurement and distribution of sufficient gas volumes from the global LNG market can Russian supplies be replaced. It is thus the interplay of supply and demand measures that allowed Central and Eastern Europe to withstand the extraordinary shock of 2022.”
