The World Is Failing In Both Energy Affordability And Climate Goals

The World Is Failing In Both Energy Affordability And Climate Goals thumbnail
  • Global energy investment is forecast to rise by 8 percent to $2.4 trillion this year.
  • Investment in renewables is rising, but it’s nowhere near the levels necessary to limit global warming within a 1.5 degrees Celsius increase.
  • IEA: Inflation has brought the first increases in the cost of renewables in a decade.
  • U.S. shale spending remains far below 2019 levels in 2022.

Global energy investment is on the rise and expected to grow by 8 percent annually this year, pushed up by record spending on clean energy, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said in its new report World Energy Investment 2022.

On the face of it, that’s great news for global energy supply and climate goals. But in reality, the rising trend is a function of galloping inflation, a deepening divide between developed and emerging economies’ investment trends, and an increase in coal investments as the biggest economies in Asia prioritize energy security amid soaring energy prices and upended energy markets following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“As things stand, today’s energy investment trends show a world falling short on climate goals, and on reliable and affordable energy,” the IEA itself admitted as much in its report.

Inflation To Eat Up Nearly Half Of Investment Increase

Global energy investment is forecast to rise by 8 percent to $2.4 trillion this year, with renewables and grid investments increasing at the fastest pace.

Still, nearly half of the $200 billion increase in investment in 2022 is likely to be eaten up by higher costs rather than bringing additional energy supply capacity or savings. Costs are soaring amid supply chain pressures, tight labor, and energy services markets, and surging steel and cement prices, the Paris-based agency said.

Inflation has also brought the first increases in the cost of renewables in a decade, and as capital-intensive technologies, renewables face a stronger impact from pressures affecting the cost of raw materials and financing than other forms of power generation, the IEA notes.

“Renewable equipment manufacturers are passing on some of these pressures in their products, with increases in the cost of solar PV panels and wind turbines of 10-20% and attempts to renegotiate existing contracts, depending on the technology and region,” the agency said.

Cost pressures could raise the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) from variable renewables by 20-30 percent this year compared to 2020.

Nevertheless, the IEA says, investment in renewables remains attractive due to the role of clean energy in the energy transition, especially if backed by supportive government policies and incentives.

Renewable Investment Is A Tale Of Two Worlds

While renewables investment and capacity installations are continuously rising in developed economies and China, the developing and emerging economies are stuck at the same level of clean energy investment as in 2015, when the Paris Agreement was signed, the IEA’s estimates showed.

Apart from some bright spots such as growth in wind and solar in Brazil and utility-scale renewables in India, the developing economies except China struggle to see renewable energy investment take off. Those major regional variations in clean energy investment “underline the risk of new dividing lines on energy and climate,” the IEA notes, adding that “overall, the relative weakness of clean energy investment across much of the developing world is one of the most worrying trends revealed by our analysis.”

The cost of capital can be up to seven times higher in developing markets than in advanced economies. Moreover, in developing economies excluding China, public funds to back renewables are lacking, policy frameworks are often weak, economies are threatened by soaring inflation and increased poverty, and borrowing costs are rising.

“Much more needs to be done to bridge the gap between emerging and developing economies’ one-fifth share of global clean energy investment, and their two-thirds share of the global population,” the IEA said.

Fossil Fuel Investment Caught Between Climate Goals And Energy Security

Investment in renewables is rising, but it’s nowhere near the levels necessary to limit global warming within a 1.5 degrees Celsius increase. At the same time, investment in fossil fuels, including coal, is set to increase this year, undermining the global pathway to climate goals on the one hand, but still insufficient to meet rising global energy demand, on the other hand.

Overall, today’s oil and gas spending is caught between two visions of the future: it is too high for a pathway aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5 °C but not enough to satisfy rising demand in a scenario where governments stick with today’s policy settings and fail to deliver on their climate pledges,” the IEA said.

Investment in new coal supply is rising amid energy security concerns.

“High prices and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine mean that fuel supply investment is currently viewed through an energy security lens, but climate pressures cannot be put aside,” the IEA said.

Investment in coal supply jumped by 10 percent last year, led by Asia, and is likely to rise by another 10 percent this year to reach $116 billion, which would be higher than the 2019 investment of $104 billion.

In upstream oil and gas, investment is also set for a 10-percent rise this year, to $417 billion, but it lags the $500 billion investment in 2019, per the IEA’s estimates. Moreover, cost escalation is diminishing the impact of higher spending on activity levels. Only the national oil companies in the Middle Eastern oil exporters are set to spend more this year than in 2019, as Saudi Arabia and the UAE look to boost oil production capacity.

Despite an expected increase of U.S. shale investments, the level of 2022 spending is still expected to be around 30 percent below 2019 levels, as operators focus on profitability and capital discipline rather than production expansion, the IEA noted.

In refining, the sector saw in 2021 the first net reduction in global capacity for the first time in 30 years, as near-record levels of capacity were retired in 2020 and 2021, contributing to the current tightness in global fuel markets. Investment in refining, however, is not certain going forward, the IEA says.

“However, the strong financial performance and high utilisation rates seen in recent months may not necessarily translate into higher investment levels given lingering uncertainty around the long-term outlook for oil demand.”

    The U.S. default currency is a global power grab. It is America’s way of shifting its inflation onto the rest of the world and making others pay for Washington’s subjugation of the rest of the planet.  Other nations recognize this, which is why the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China South Africa) and others are devising their own, independent means of payment.  The dollar is just another form of weapon against the world.  And it will not pay for the “renewable” fakery, whose costs rise ever higher the more it is pursued.

    The United States is a planeticidal maniac posing as an earthly Savior of All.  And if this self-made supergod decides to impoverish those who refuse its commands, it can do so at will.  Because the lawmaker is above the law.

    The current dust-up in Ukraine will soon reveal that this god and its grotesquely materialistic stringpullers — Schwab, Säräs, Gates and suckups — are idols with feet of clay.  The lack of natural gas and affordable gasoline in Europe will weaken that cluster of idiots severely, especially as winter comes around.  And all of the technotoys in the world are not going to be able to keep their industries humming.

    Because the devil always gets his due.

    The Oil Industry and Involuntary Liquidation

    “There are two major narratives about the oil business currently, spurred by spiking fuel prices and corporate profits. One is that President Biden is responsible for high fuel prices; there’s no point in even discussing that notion, it is simply too dumb to live. The other, embraced by a large number of very smart people, is that the oil companies are making obscene profits by price gouging — raising prices simply because they can, and using the profits to buy back stocks and pay higher dividends and salaries.”

    One extreme climate event can worsen others, studies show

    “Two new studies shed light on the increasing risks the world faces from global warming and how such dangers can escalate in a cascading fashion.

    Why it matters: One study published this week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters warns that certain extremes, such as drought, can exacerbate other climate hazards like heat waves.

    Driving the news: When climate change-related extremes interact, they can create cascading and unprecedented outcomes, per the new research.

    The Southwest is currently enduring a prolonged, human-induced megadrought, and these conditions are raising the odds for a hotter, drier summer with high wildfire risks.

    The big picture: The study shows that extreme drought in the Southwest during June of 2021 led to record heat throughout the region, and exacerbated the dry conditions.”

    Holy cow a whole 1000.

    The US currently has 258.3 million adults, so WOW!

    1000 out of 258.3 million totally clinches it.

    BTW the headline is wrong, the 1000 said that it might ‘soon be necessary to take up arms’ against the US government, not that it might soon be necessary that “I/they” take up arms’ against the US government.

    clog, like all of you poor widdle cry baby victims what you really mean is “somebody else please go and fight for my beliefs and anger/hate”.

    It is far more likely, for example, that Klaus Schwab believes all of the Fourth Industrial Great Green New Reset bullshit than that he is using it as a cover for something more nefarious, simply because nobody in his employ dare tell him that his vision defies more laws of physics than Star Trek ever did.

    “The sad reality though, is that our leaders – at least within the western empire – have bought into a vision of the future which cannot work without some new and yet-to-be-discovered high-density energy source (which rules out all of the so-called green technologies whose main purpose is to concentrate relatively weak and diffuse energy sources). Worse still, these idiots believed that they were in control and that they had choices.”

    “In reality – and there have been an army of geologists, engineers, physicists and even a handful of contrarian economists who have tried to explain this – the fossil fuels which still account for 85 percent of the energy (Nuclear and Hydroelectric account for most of the rest) which powers everything we do are a precious and finite resource.”

    Fossil fuels should not be used anymore they need to be replaced with renewable energy sources like solar power, wind power and hydroelectricity.

    Hi! I’m a consumer who uses a huge amount of petroleum, natural gas and coal for my lavish lifestyle. I completely blame big oil and other corporations for the mess we’re in. This is a normal attitude, countless people think like me.

    George W. Bush lost to Al Gore by a half-million votes and Donald Trump lost to Hillary Clinton by 3 million votes but both ended up in the White House.

    Europe keeps leading the renewable energy transition:

    (Americans love to think that, magically, renewable energy somehow doesn’t work)

    And within Europe, it’s the Netherlands that is currently installing most new capacity, by far. At this rate, the country will have 100% renewable electricity before 2030.

    clog, I’ve been very busy of late.

    What’s happening in Ukraine?

    Is it almost over? Will the Neocons be eating crow again?

    Ukraine Is The Latest Neocon Disaster

    “The war in Ukraine is the culmination of a 30-year project of the American neoconservative movement. The Biden Administration is packed with the same neocons who championed the US wars of choice in Serbia (1999), Afghanistan (2001), Iraq (2003), Syria (2011), Libya (2011), and who did so much to provoke Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The neocon track record is one of unmitigated disaster, yet Biden has staffed his team with neocons. As a result, Biden is steering Ukraine, the US, and the European Union towards yet another geopolitical debacle. If Europe has any insight, it will separate itself from these US foreign policy debacles.”

    Now the G7 pigs at the trough are using the Putin as their excuse for back tracking of a weak ass climate pledge that they were never going to fulfill in the first place. No climate pledge of any significance has every been fulfilled and yet the sheep still act so shocked & outraged when it happens.

    “The G7 statement says that “with a view to accelerating the phase-out of our dependency on Russian energy, we stress the important role increased deliveries of LNG can play, and acknowledge that investment in this sector is necessary in response to the current crisis.”

    ‘Morally Bankrupt’ G7 Slammed for ‘Caving’ to Fossil Fuel Lobby on Climate

    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2022/06/28/morally-bankrupt-g7-slammed-caving-fossil-fuel-lobby-climate

    Are not the obese dopamine seeking consumers who refuse to give up their fat lifestyles morally bankrupt too?

    Yes the poor will burn first (already are), but the rest will follow shortly. All will burn.

    Investment always means or includes MOAR! taxpayer funded subsidies for Big Cancer.

    Bring it on. We’ll just burn that much faster.

    Why do you bring this up?

    Why admitting that your “invincible super jews” are very defeatable? Bad for your self-esteem.

    Famous, Cloggie believes in fairies, leprechauns, unicorns and a future of zero FFs. Well, the last is the only one that will eventually exist when there are no more FFs left on earth.

    Humans, if they still exist, will be back to the only “renewable” energy, sunlight. Until then, he will just have to live in his fantasy world. I hope he is prepared to live this winter when Vladimir turns off his heat, or maybe, destroys Europe.

    ‘has the impulse control of a freaking toddler’

    Now we are putting down toddlers by comparing them to the Fat Boy.
    Sad, almost all toddlers are also not cowards, like the Fat Boy.
