The good thing about the sharing economy is: we save resources, we help each other out - while meeting new people. And: We save or even make money. When it comes to energy, more and more people generate, store and consume their own green electricity – with solar panels on roofs as well as batteries and mini power in basements.

To meet those expectations in today’s global economy, these companies have to reduce costs and increase productivity without jeopardizing safety. But foresightful shareholders also realize that corporate profits have to be balanced with social value in a world undergoing profound changes in the way it produces and consumes energy. Can scientific research and technology development help an oil and gas company make energy accessible to a growing population, tackle climate change, and provide a competitive return to shareholders? If so, how? Includes an introduction by...

  • Growing U.S. Energy Self-sufficiency and the Global Consequences

    The United States is well on its way to becoming largely self-sufficient in oil and gas and could overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest supplier of hydrocarbons by 2020. Even if U.S. energy independence is still some time away, this is nonetheless a stunning turnaround from decades of U.S. dependence on imported energy sources and all the attendant geopolitical concerns. The change has been driven in part by innovative methods of exploration and extraction of fossil fuels such as shale gas from hydraulic fracturing. In a development entirely unforeseen five years ago, this has caused natural gas supplies in the United States to soar and prices to drop. Europe, in contrast, must pay four to five times more for its natural gas and has become one of the biggest importers of U.S. coal, ...

Cross-border cooperation in energy is not a new idea. Historically, it is at the core of the development of the European Community. In 1951 France, West Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands decided to form the European Coal and Steel Community. They hoped that pooling vital natural resources would ‘make war not only unthinkable but materially impossible’. In 2014 the goals of cooperation in energy have changed. Member states seek to complete an internal energy market which will ensure competitiveness, sustainability and security of supply. As a small, peripheral market with a reliance on imported fossil fuels, Ireland has much to gain from the increased integration of energy markets in the EU. However, this must be a gradual process as member states remain reluctant to cede control of how they use the national energy resources which fuel their economies. Electricity remains one of last sectors without free trade in the EU. Therefore, in 2006 the European Regulators Group for Electricity and Gas (ERGEG) established seven regional electricity markets as an interim step toward a single European electricity market.1 The regional markets are as follows: 1. France-UK-Ireland, (FUI) 2. Central-East 3. Central-West 4. Central-South 5. South West 6. Baltic 7. Northern Ireland, operating as an all-island Single Electricity Market (SEM) since 2007, is part of the regional energy market covering the FUI region and cooperates with two of the biggest electricity producers in Europe: France and the UK. The governments, regulators and grid operators from these countries are working together to develop solutions for a regional market. While the target for the completion of the internal energy market is the end of 2014, Ireland has been granted an extension until 2016 to allow for transitional arrangements, due to the significant differences between the SEM and European market models. The incoming European Commission President, Jean Claude Juncker, has reaffirmed the priority of completing the internal energy market, emphasising the benefits of driving down costs and boosting growth. Meanwhile, in the wake of concerns about European energy security, the current Italian Presidency has argued that the completion of the internal energy market will increase member state solidarity, ensure safety of energy supplies and facilitate the integration of indigenous sources of energy, like renewables. However, completing the internal energy market by 2014 remains a sizeable challenge. Member states still need to increase interconnections and further harmonise their market rules. This video explains the role regional electricity markets are playing in meeting this challenge and the benefits they are expected to bring.

I’m going to start off with water because it’s the most fundamental key to staying alive. Next is food that doesn’t require refrigeration or cooking – and, hey! Don’t forget about your friends. A good rule of thumb is to have three different ways to start a fire available to you. If you’re lucky or smart enough to have a fireplace make sure you have a jag of wood and / or lumber to burn. A hearth doesn’t do much if all you have to burn in it are candles. If you’re going to try the Flower Pot Heater, be sure and see my video from last week. They work OK except you’ll need about ten of them to heat a small room. Same goes for lanterns. Make sure you have a good supply of fuel. Invest in a decent First Aid Kit. You only need to use it once for it to pay for itself. You can never have too many flashlights… unless you forget to stock up on batteries. I want to mention that you can use barbeques and camp stoves outside to make coffee and cook supper on – no matter what time of year it is… as long as you have fuel to burn. These “Space Blankets” used with your own bedding and secured using some duct tape or masking tape can make a huge difference in the quality of your sleep. As can sleeping with a hat or better yet a balaclava on. Fresh and clean socks, underwear and whatever else you plan on wearing. I’m not here to judge. A radio with a crank generator and a backup power supply for your cell-phone and laptop will make the blackout go by a lot quicker. As will having some sort of “off grid entertainment” like a deck of cards to pass the time. Alright thanks for watching and don’t forget to subscribe!

When it comes to energy, more and more people generate, store and consume their own green electricity – with solar panels on roofs as well as batteries and mini power in basements. So the question pops up: Why we can’t share our energy with other people? Our software platform SchwarmDirigent® today already links up and optimizes photovoltaic systems, storage, chp units and electric vehicles intelligently. In the future, you can connect to the SchwarmDirigent® and easily sell your green electricity to the energy markets or to whoever you want. Our vision is to provide clean energy - anytime, anywhere and to anyone.

In Gaza, two million people are affected by lack of electricity. While in any healthy economy, energy underpins industrial processes and economic growth, Gaza faces electricity blackouts every 8 hours. During summer and winter peaks the scarce electricity supply is increasingly rationed to 4 hours during day time. The available power supply has affected vital services such as hospitals, clinics, and water supplies.

A conversation on energy access, corporate social responsibility, and climate change solutions with Shell’s Harry Brekelmans.  Shareholders of publicly traded oil and gas companies expect a decent return on their investments. To meet those expectations in today’s global economy, these companies have to reduce costs and increase productivity without jeopardizing safety. But foresightful shareholders also realize that corporate profits have to be balanced with social value in a world undergoing profound changes in the way it produces and consumes energy. Can scientific research and technology development help an oil and gas company make energy accessible to a growing population, tackle climate change, and provide a competitive return to shareholders? If so, how? Includes an introduction by MIT Vice President for Research Maria Zuber and fireside chat with MIT Energy Initiative Director Robert Armstrong. This talk was presented on September 6, 2017. About the speaker: Harry Brekelmans is Projects & Technology (P&T) Director and a member of the Executive Committee of Royal Dutch Shell plc. As P&T Director, Harry oversees an organization that delivers Shell’s major oil and gas projects, provides support to operating assets, and drives technological and commercial innovation. P&T also provides functional leadership in areas such as engineering, contracts and procurement, and IT, as well as safety and environment. P&T works with some of the world’s leading engineering, procurement, and construction companies and integrated services contractors. It also collaborates with public and private research institutes, start-ups, incubators, and entrepreneurs on technology developments. Harry began his career at Shell after graduating from Delft Technical University with a degree in petroleum engineering. A stint in the R&D department of Shell’s Exploration & Production business in the Netherlands was followed by various roles in Egypt and the UK. From 2007 to 2009, he was CEO of Salym Petroleum Development, a Shell joint venture in Russia. In 2009, he became Executive Vice President (EVP) for Shell Group Strategy and Planning, before returning to Russia in 2011 as Country Chairman and EVP for Russia and the Caspian region. He moved back to his native city, The Hague, in 2013 to take up a new role as EVP for Upstream International Operated. Harry moved to his current role as P&T Director in 2014.

The United States is well on its way to becoming largely self-sufficient in oil and gas and could overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's biggest supplier of hydrocarbons by 2020. Even if U.S. energy independence is still some time away, this is nonetheless a stunning turnaround from decades of U.S. dependence on imported energy sources and all the attendant geopolitical concerns. The change has been driven in part by innovative methods of exploration and extraction of fossil fuels such as shale gas from hydraulic fracturing. In a development entirely unforeseen five years ago, this has caused natural gas supplies in the United States to soar and prices to drop. Europe, in contrast, must pay four to five times more for its natural gas and has become one of the biggest importers of U.S. coal, which is experiencing a sharp decline in its share of U.S. electricity generation as power is increasingly supplied by natural gas. This increasing availability of cheap electricity is helping to bring new vigor to the U.S. economy and there are signs of new manufacturing life in old industrial regions as energy-intensive industries like petrochemicals are finding the United States a more competitive place to do business.

Most people (maybe not all) need a B-12 supplement. The Top 5 Reasons You Need VeganSafe B-12 1. It’s the Best B-12 Available! Methylcobalamin, or methylated B-12 is the most pure, active, bioavailable coenzyme form of B-12 and when paired with adenosylcobalamin, the other coenzyme form of B-12, forms the most potent B-12 combination available. 2. Encourages Normal Energy Levels Vitamin B-12 promotes energy production in multiple ways. It supports the adrenal glands, red blood cell formation, and helps convert carbohydrates to glucose -- the fuel your body uses for energy. 3. Ultra Absorbable Formula Helps Fight B-12 Deficiency B-12 deficiency is a serious problem that can cause anemia, fatigue, weakness, constipation, weight loss, depression, poor memory, asthma, vision problems, and low sperm count. 4. Supports Your Body’s Major Processes As a defense against homocysteine, B-12 is nutritional support for your cardiovascular and nervous systems. 5. Natural Sleep Support Some research has linked methylcobalamin to positive effects on sleep due to its influence on melatonin secretion and light sensitivity; it also helps normalize a person's 24-hour clock. The Health Benefits of VeganSafe B-12 Nutritionally supports cardiovascular function. Promotes nervous system health. Fights homocysteine, a cardiovascular stressor. Supports adrenal function and energy production. Essential for cell growth and replication and DNA production. May support a healthy sleep-wake cycle. Shocking Facts About Vitamin B-12 As many as 30% of adults over 50 are unable to absorb B-12 in food, making supplementation the best source. Research conducted at the University of Oxford study found that vitamin B-12 deficiency may lead to brain shrinkage. B-12 supplementation is not a cure for Alzheimer's disease but preliminary reports suggest a link between vitamin B-12 deficiency and Alzheimer's disease. Vitamin B-12 deficiency leads to megaloblastic anemia, a fatigue ridden condition where red blood cells don't develop properly and can't carry oxygen efficiently. Why is VeganSafe B-12 the Best Vitamin B-12 Supplement? Contains methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin, the bioavailable, coenzyme forms of B-12. Highly absorbable, no conversion in the liver is necessary. The European Food Safety Authority reports that the combination of adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin is the best and safest representation of naturally occurring vitamin B-12. VeganSafe B-12 is an easy and delicious liquid formula -- no injections. Vegetarian and vegan friendly, GMO and gluten free! Made in the USA and according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs). he Top 3 Questions People Ask About VeganSafe B-12 1. What is vitamin B-12? Vitamin B-12, also called cobalamin, is the B vitamin that supports normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, energy production, and for the formation of red blood cells. It’s important to know that vitamin B-12 is a name that refers to a group of vitamins known as cobalamins; this includes methylcobalamin, adenosylcobalamin, hydroxo-, and cyanocobalmin. 2. What is hydroxo- and cyanocobalamin? Cheap, lesser quality forms of vitamin B-12 often used by bargain vitamin companies who add them for marketing purposes. Cyanocobalamin contains a cyanide molecule that must be metabolized by the liver. The process of removing the cyanide molecule uses methyl groups normally used to lower homocysteine levels (higher homocysteine cause stress on the heart). Cyanocobalamin robs your body of beneficial methyl groups and is a perfect example of an instance when low-quality vitamins are worse than no vitamins. 3. Why is VeganSafe B-12 superior to other cobalamins? VeganSafe B-12 contains adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin, a combination that’s better absorbed and used more efficiently in your liver, brain, and nervous system. VeganSafe B-12 does not have to be converted in your liver. Methylcobalamin supports vision whereas cyanocobalamin is thought to be ineffective. Cyanocobalmin is also not recommended for people who smoke, have kidney problems, or don’t metabolize cyanide properly. Results vary.
