Energy Majors Make Moves Toward Renewables—Again
“Could renewables be the Majors’ next big thing?” That’s the provocative question raised in a white paper by Wood MacKenzie, a research and consultancy group, promoted through its subsidiary, Greentech Media. A few years back, the major oil and gas companies had small but active units dedicated to renewable energy sources. When oil reached $100 a barrel, these exploratory departments went quiet. Now, as the rapid growth of wind and solar power radically reshapes energy markets, Big Oil is getting back into the renewables game. Whether the Majors are “leading the way in shaping strategies to capture a piece of the action” as the paper claims may be a stretch, but there’s clearly some movement away from a sole focus on fossil fuels and towards renewables.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) — There’s an old saying, “be careful what you wish for, you might get it.” True enough, it cautions us to look beyond near-term results. There are those like Adam Vaughn, writing in the Guardian, now saying exactly that about electric cars. Certainly, Vaughn and others are not wrong. Big increases in EV utilization will tax our current electric supply. In his case, he’s quoting National Grid saying that EV growth in the UK could exceed the capacity of the...
(3BL Media/Justmeans) — In the midst of all the distraction over Russia and the Healthcare bill, the Senate has introduced a new energy bill. Called the Energy and Natural Resources Act of 2017. S. 1460, it’s a bipartisan bill that was introduced by Senators Murkowski (R-AK) and Cantwell (D-WA). Could the timing be a matter of trying to slip something through unnoticed? That certainly seems to be popular tactic.
