"Let's say you guys are working with somebody who hasn't been in the on gas base in some operator has a lot of data i mean. How do those deals get hammered out as to like okay. We'll let you use this data if you do this for us. Or is there a straight transaction like. Hey we have this data will sell it to you. I mean how does that work. It's a good question in the end. The answer is broad in that it really depends. It could be any volume or all of the above and that i mean it can be anywhere from no. We actually don't want you to do anything please. Just give us the technology and we'll handle everything ourselves to hey. We actually need a lot of help. Managing data understanding the data. It's governments its impact on workflows where it can be used. How can reuse it. We want you guys are deeply involved in working with us to manage that entire process so yeah it can very much be at the two extremes or anything in between interesting and also an article. You mentioned geothermal applications which is under the. We'll talk about very much. It's quite interesting. Because i knew people have frat company who quit that company to start up a geothermal company so i think it's an area that's up and coming but that we don't we don't hear much about but of course you know understanding the subsurface. When you're talking about geothermal reservoirs is super important as well right absolutely absolutely and that's face on a number of work. As operators in new zealand turkey. iceland done some global eysenck screenings for super-major. So there's definitely been activity on that front and as you say i think that that's only accelerate. There's going to be more and more of that coming. So what do you see. Kind of ten thousand foot view of renewables and in the companies that are working with them and how that's going so out of the three technologies we're talking about here for carbon capture offshore wind and geothermal..

"And how it's shaping our industry. Now here's your host jim watkins. All right. We're here today with diease. Ceo of icon. And we're gonna talk about an article that he wrote in. We're actually gonna find out if he actually wrote the article himself as well in these timber issue of september. Twenty twenty one issue of world oil. The articles called in a time of change. Understanding sub service remains critical to project success. So didn't he welcome to the show. Thank you glad to hear. Didn't before we get into the article and all of that. Tell us a little bit about yourself and you know how it is that you know your educational background and how you became a ceo. Such an important company happy to do that. So our industry about twenty years or so my background's actually in civil and environmental engineering and somehow ended up working a software space within olin gas. Been with aragon gone science for about eight years. I came on board initially as chief technology officer running the software development team over the years. Move that into a chief product officer position focus more on a strategy map and longer term direction of the company and about a year and a half ago or so. I was appointed this ceo. So it's it's been a great ride and certainly my background focus has always been on the software side. Megan applications that address the biggest needs and challenges of our clients and hopefully make a difference for their business. Will i guess that explains the question. I had it dopp. Did you actually write this article. Because believe me i. I see a lot of articles from. Ceo's that they dropped the ideas in somebody else's brighton. But what your background. You probably wrote this article then you certainly as always with the health of marketing did a great job of putting the right words to some of the content and so on you bet happy more than comfortable talking about all aspects of it. That's awesome. that's awesome. Well let's jump into..

How the Olympics Is Working to Be More Environmentally-Friendly

"Organizers. Have pledged the games will be safe from the pandemic. they also say they'll be environmentally friendly. Npr's anthony kuhn takes a closer look at that claim last month. Grandiose music's welded a ceremony to unveil symbols of olympic sustainability when simple comes courtesy of olympic sponsor procter and gamble stanislav vesa. Ceo of png's. Japan subsidiary introduced the podiums on which athletes will get their medals. The tokyo atlanta twenty podiums are made for use plastic packages directly collected by consumers and then recycled even the gold silver and bronze part of the symbolism. They'll be extracted from recycled cell phones and other gadgets to make the athletes medals but some analysts say the symbolism of sustainability exaggerates the reality unfortunately the data show that stability in all dimensions is decreasing over time from nineteen ninety. Two to twenty twenty. That's fan daniel wolf. At the university of lausanne switzerland he co authored. A study of the sustainability of recent olympic games wolf define sustainable as having limited ecological impact promoting social justice and being economically efficient. These goals he says tend to take a back seat to the ambition to put on dazzling mega events but wolf and some environmental groups. Do give olympic organizers credit for at least trying. Monaco konishi is the climate and energy project leader at wwf japan. She praises the games energy plan. So the extra electricity that is required for the tokyo olympic will be one hundred percent renewable energy and that could be a very good role model for the future olympics. The games will of course still produce carbon emissions. But she says the organizers have already secured more than enough carbon credits to try to offset the greenhouse gases. The games

There's some bills such as long term, fix the education funding K through 12, and that's another one where getting consensus and everyone to agree. Particularly on that bill regarding school funding local schools. The question is, How much does this kind of fix that supposedly more fair? How much does it cost? And who pays and worse? The money come from minor details. Well, School funding has been an issue in Ohio for it Seems like forever because you we've had multiple versions of the way that the funding is supposed to work. I mean, realistically, will this ever get solved? In all honesty. Ohio is a very big and diverse state. We've got 600 plus different school districts. And in western Ohio. The needs and interests are different than they are and urban areas versus other rural areas, And at one point they thought the big problem was We've got to make sure there's newer buildings that have better technology better set up for kids to be able to learn and teachers to be able to operate and they spend. Ohio spent literally billions of dollars on new school buildings and That's clearly helped. But there's still the problem of contracts are.

How green banks drive investment in renewable energy

"A new clean energy project is tough to finance a Green Bank sometimes steps in help using public capital. These institutions can provide loans and encourage private investment. Alex Craig is director of the American Green, bank consortium. We're not in the business of competing directly with private capital. For example, we are not interested in financing a solar farm that's being built in the Nevada desert. There's plenty of attractive financing available for those types of projects. What we do focus on is the projects that have some hesitation from private sector lenders. So maybe that solar panel insulation in the Nevada desert. Has Energy storage component that is making lenders little nervous green banks can step in and jump into the capital Stack and get to the point where lenders are comfortable with the project turning the project from a red light to a green light. Efforts by members of the American Green Bank consortium have collectively led to over five billion dollars of new clean energy investments. By craigie says a lot more is still needed. It sounds nice and we're proud of it but we got attack on some Zeros to the end of that fast if we want to do anything about actually tackling the problem of climate change.

Clean energy transition will strengthen national security, Navy veteran says

"Dan. Mitch. Spent five years in the navy. When he left for civilian life, a career clean energy was not on his radar. I did not know very much about clean energy or climate change when I got out of the navy. But he got a job at the Department of Energy and as he learned more, he became passionate about the benefits of solar and wind. The clean energy transition is going to strengthen our future national security by reducing our reliance on foreign fuels, diversifying energy sources and our investments in those energy sources and mitigating the worst impacts of climate change today missions a senior fellow at the Atlantic, council and founder of the Veterans Advanced Energy Project, which recruits veterans for clean energy jobs. Most military veterans for one reason or another how a mission oriented service nature to contribute to society and defend their country both while wearing the uniform after they take the uniform off. So mich- helps them understand how working for clean energy can support national security. We hope to help make veterans feel good about what they choose to do in their post military careers.

"energy projects" Discussed on Newsradio 700 WLW

"In the big outdoors news radio 700 WLW since standing in the home of the Cincinnati Reds, and the best Bengals coverage chip part with you. My guest is a Norm Schultz, president emeritus of the late Gary Marine Trades Association, and also a blogger for Marine dealers through Soundings Trade magazine, which is a very fine trade publication and Norm. We're talking about the icebreaker Laker, a wind turbine project on Lake Erie. Nothing has happened to this point. We have no construction. No cables. But this thing went before the Ohio Power, citing board, which I know literally nothing about but is a state board that apparently approves up. Energy projects I would assume and, ah, the Ohio House of Representatives has weighed in on this with, you know, with a letter to the board signed by You know all the top members, you know in the House of Representatives, voicing their their concern over the lack of Virtually Anything that has to do with the impact and jobs of a project like this, and you know, I sit back and you travel when you travel up through. Ah, Indiana, Illinois and some of the Iowa the Western states. You see these miles and miles of these big, huge wind turbines, and that's that's really what we're speaking about here is that And these things. They're huge. I mean that they appear to stand about 100 ft. Tall with with blades, almost three blades equally that you know the size of the height of these towers, and they're just Overwhelming. They also have long been known to kill significant numbers of bird life. Bats, ducks, You know anything that flies, even eagles and so How do we get around that that subject of thes wind turbines being on Lake Erie on what's recognized There's an international fly way for ducks and migratory birds between Canada, the Arctic and, Ah, North America. And, of course in the South America, I mean, we're talking a huge fly way that handles I know millions and millions of of birds literally. Man. We're tired. We're talking significantly huge kills here. I'm glad your brother's up because that is one of the heart of the arguments that we have is the potential for killing the birds and people say, Well, you know, bad birds and bats. What's important, Well, number one like you said. It's an internationally recognised fly way. Number two. We realize that bats eat insects. Huge amounts of insects, which protect that was made have especially the live in northern oil. So there's a there's a benefit to to us. Humans of not killing these birds, bats and eagles obviously had protected but Interesting vision, these air 500 ft High powers. Okay, 500 ft. Above the above the lake. Imagine Thousands of birds being killed in these things as their 12 around. Those birds are now car position floating on the water. We're going to try and navigate through that message voters but even more These carcasses will end up washing up on the beaches in the Cleveland area. I mean, hello. How? How did this get by the U. S Fish and Wildlife Service? Interesting. I think the rush to grant federal permits to renewable energy projects. This this one went through. There is there was a man gentlemen and main, Mr Gross, who retired recently from us special while I who did testify that there should be a full environmental impact statement done on this entire project before it's ever permitted. The apparently the people in Washington ignored that and went ahead and gave the permit. However, what happened at the board meeting that you just referred to on Thursday the Ohio Power, citing board they granted a permit to build, But in there, there's a condition that says The turbines must be shut down at night from March to November each year because of the fly away. Now, the league co developers said. Well, that may make the project unfinanced herbal, and it may not happen to which we say Hallelujah. That's a business decision, not an economic or an environmental decisions. So the bird issue has become quite a an issue in terms of whether or not icebreaker will actually get built. But like he said, right now, chip, they have a permit they could start building tomorrow. And that's what we don't want to see happen once it starts, uh, with the horse has left the party. Hey, did Larry householder have anything to do with this? Honestly, you know, this is all very and we're talking about a huge energy company called Lead Co. Okay, and that would be worth up. Knowing a little bit about what whether their political activities leading up to any of this permitting process or so. Supposedly they're a nonprofit energy development company. What hasn't come out is that once the towers the six ice break, the turbines are built. If they're built, guess is going to own them. A Norwegian energy company. They will not be called a U S company. Hello, So there's so many ramifications and tentacles to this mess. But he's been mind. They have a permit A website with Jenna. Wanna plug yes friendly. Gary dot com Defend Lake Erie dot com Many of the listeners Who love the lake, or even believe that shouldn't happen. Khun go.

Developing long duration energy storage

"What a year it's shaping up to be for. Storage manufacturing has taken a hit and some projects are getting delayed for obvious reasons Our analysts that would mackenzie say that. The coronavirus crisis will trim twenty twenty forecasts for Battery Installations. Globally by almost twenty percent. But they still expect it to be a record year and the projects that caught our eye are not going to get built this year but they do show the strength and resiliency of this market a few examples here. A coal plant in North Dakota is going to be replaced. In part with a one acre battery array that uses a new technology capable of discharging for a hundred and fifty hours. That's more than thirty times longer than a lithium ion batteries. The Electric Utility in Hawaii just awarded contracts for sixteen projects that add up to more than three gigawatt hours of storage and those will replace an oil fired. Coal-fired Power Plant in California Southern California Edison signed contracts for seven hundred seventy megawatts of batteries. Many of them paired with solar projects to replace aging gas plants plus in China more hybrid wind solar and battery plants are starting to emerge and wood. Mackenzie expects rapid growth in batteries within China in the coming years. It's the country will lead Asia. This lead Dan Foley who would McKenzie's head of energy storage to proclaim to our journalist at Green Tech Media The utility energy storage market is blowing through milestones faster than we can report them for example those Sei projects are together worth two hundred megawatts more than the entire twenty nineteen market says Fin Foley. So let's go through these. I think we should focus on the bright shiny objects I. What do we know about this form? Energy Project Catherine mentioned this at the end of a recent show so catherine what is Great River Energy who is form energy and what kind of battery could emerge from. This relationship is a great river. Energy is the largest generation and transmission co-op and what that means is it generates and provides power under long-term contracts to a bunch of member. Co Ops like twenty eight member Co ops and this is how a lot of the COP system is formed in the US where they're small co ops that are often serving rural communities. They are very much about keeping costs low for their customers and customers. Own the CO OPS. They are customer owners but then they sign up for long term agreements with these GMT providers. Because it does save the money in the long run and a lot of these. Gmt providers we've seen have these long term contracts For old coal plants and so great river energy is one of those GM GMT's and they made a decision a while back to shut down coal a coal plant call strip and they have been thinking about. How are we going to backfill it? And what are we going to use to do that? And so they've certainly been deploying a lot of renewables and they just recently entered into this agreement with Form Energy and forum is a start up Led by Matteo Harm. Yo who came out of TUSLA. He was the energy storage guru there yet mingchang. Who's an MIT professor? Who has been really another brains behind storage and Ted Wiley who co-founded Aquaman and energy storage company and there are a couple of other. Mit folks. Billy Woodford and Marco Ferrara and there. It's just a team of incredible minds. Who decided to try to calm at storage by thinking about it it as potentially being able to replace all of these Uncaught non cost effective coal plants and so their technology seeks to be super cheap long-duration Nontoxic something you would find everywhere to be able to you know. Put together a type of a flow battery that could just replace the footprint of any fossil fuel plant so that is their goal. And that's what a great river energy has decided to take a bet on. Let's talk about the tech first and then the rural cooperatives piece second jigger. This is a battery. We don't know much about but they call it an aqueous air battery. What does that mean well? Basically in it uses more abundant materials. Because what you find is as that the metals wondering yeah we'll water but also the metals they're using or quite Easy to find and so it's aluminum zinc magnesium etc right. And so so what you find is that they have this ability to use low-cost materials right and they're able to Store lots of energy so when you think about this ad. Matteo talks about this in his interview The way that Lithium. Ion Batteries work is that you can actually charged quickly and discharged quickly but at the same time basically to charge it as to discharge it. And so what you find. Is that these batteries It's around like sort of being able to constrict the nozzle and only making it one megawatt right because you can imagine that you could make a lithium ion battery that's a hundred megawatts incised but only dispatch one megawatt at a time and then make it last one hundred fifty hours now. The problem with that those. It's a super expensive way to get one hundred fifty hour battery whereas this is a much cheaper way. It's it's similar to sort of Etienne redux batteries and others were the basically have this. The fluid that that holds the charge can be expanded at a very low cost. The fuel cell that converts that fluid into energy that's utilized is the expensive

Coronavirus pandemic expected to slow transition to clean energy

"Covert. Nineteen has shuddered. Major sectors of the global economy and renewable energy projects are not immune solar and wind. Projects are on hold. What does that mean for the green economy and for progress on Climate Change Dan Marino with inside? Climate News has been writing about that. Hi Dan how big picture I how renewable energy projects being impacted by cove. Nineteen the big picture. His that the supply side seems to be holding up. Okay meaning that projects can get the parts they need. But the demand side is in big trouble that refers to just the companies that are developing projects. They are running into financial difficulties. They're running into difficulties. Just getting workers to be able to do work. Let's talk about solar projects for a minute. it's been growing rapidly. We know over the last decade plus and the latest forecasts suggest maybe a reduction in new solar projects in twenty twenty. One was the last time that happened. This was supposed to be a big big year. For solar power now we can see global solar installations. Actually down this year. And there's really no precedent for that. What about wind is that the same picture went our any? Us and globally is probably going to be at a record high this year but the key point there relative to corona virus is that it's not going to be as big as we thought it would be a couple months ago. You wrote about offshore wind projects. Why are they in jeopardy? The US offshore wind dentistry barely exists. There's one project that has been completed in this country. It's a small one in Rhode Island in. There are a whole bunch of big projects in various phases of development or at this park with his whole new. Renewable energy industry is kind of coming into being and the delays and being able to have people work on projects is at a terrible time. Offshore wind is a really important part of the growth of renewable energy in the US because it allows the supply of renewable energy really close to east coast population centers. In if there's this big delay while this industry is still in its infancy anti us. It's something that is causing. A tremendous amount of heartburn throughout the industry. And what will you be for in the next few months? One of the big things to watch going forward is discussions about extending tax credits for noble energy projects that were scheduled either phase out or ramp down a bit at the end of this year. So much of what is putting pressure on them to do projects in twenty twenty. Is that the projects get more expensive after that because of tax credit implications. What does this mean for meeting Global Climate Change Goals going forward? There's a real danger that this sudden drop in emissions that we're seeing right now because this economy is just at a standstill will be followed by a rebound and a surge in admissions and it almost becomes lost time in terms of meeting emissions goals He also are taking a lot of attention away from political leaders who were otherwise going to spend a lot of time this year talking about their plans for reducing emissions We just had the announcement that a a U N conference that was critical for setting. Those plants is being delayed. The big issue here is that we're all focusing on this very immediate crisis while there's this kind of more slowly moving crisis of climate change that is kind of simultaneously still very much. There hasn't gone away. Dan guerrino with inside climate news. Thanks for sharing your insight on climate cass. Today thank you very much.

"There's no way to solve an energy issue in Canada right now without making some part of this country very very angry and now that the price of oil no longer guarantees a huge payoff in return for that anger. Companies are wondering if it's even worth attempting new projects tech resources announcing it's what's wrong. Its application for the frontier project. This comes just hours. After the Alberta government announced it struck a deal with to northern Alberta first nations. Of course you also can't just walk away from an energy project in Canada today without some people also getting very very angry but at least they won't be angry you. There is absolutely no doubt that this decision was taken in large part because of regulatory uncertainty and endless delays created by the national government by now. No one should be shocked to learn that. There's a lot of resentment of the federal government in Alberta. It's always been this way. It feels like it's getting worse and this time. Alberta probably has a point whatever side of the debate over climate policy versus energy policy. You might said on. It's clear that there's no big framework when it comes to approving or denying energy projects like the one tech has walked away from these projects seem right now to be handled on a case by case basis in Canada. Really continue to do business that way and if it does how will companies like tech choose which projects they push or wet and what comes home for the province of Alberta without a mine. They were counting on for thousands of jobs. Are we reaching a tipping point in the ever? Frayed relationship between the province and Canada's capital or at least the government currently sets there. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Jason Marcus off the Albert correspondent for Maclean's and also occasionally for US I Jason. Hello. Why don't you start for Ontarians and East coasters? Maybe everybody who hasn't had quite so much of an economic stake in this by just Sketching out what is tech resources. And what was I? Guess the Frontier Project Tech Resources Everybody should remember is actually not an oil company using its well companies who develop oil sands but this is actually a mining company. Their specialty is coal mines other mineral mines. They had dabbled a bit in oil sands being junior partner in one project and on this one they were trying to propose this one. All on its own This would have been an oil sands mine up quite far north of Fort mcmurray the most remote from the actual city of Fort mcmurray North East Alberta and this was one of the big classic mining projects where they basically dig up the muck the oil sands muck and refine it into `bitumen and keep refining it and keep refining until it eventually becomes oil. That's the classic oil says project. A lot of it has projects that had been developed in the last Five six years have been smaller projects where they just shoot a bunch of Stephen Chemicals and minerals into the oil sands well and dig it up. Those are smaller projects. This is going to be a big mega project. Two hundred and sixty thousand barrels a day at full completion twenty point six billion dollars of to construct this project of course though it was very hypothetical because what they needed to develop a beggar project was around seventy seventy five dollars barrel oil right now. We're at fifty. We habit around fifty four quite a long time and they needed pipeline. You know ones are coming. But it's not clear that there wouldn't necessarily be capacity if Trans Mountain and other projects don't come to be and they needed another partner to get this done big oil sands company or oil player to help them develop and finance this project and over the last five years we've been talking about companies leaving the oil sands. Nobody WANTS TO INVEST. Because it's high risk no intense carbon footprint Very controversial projects. So it was always very unlikely that this project might have ever been built. We were always debating hypothetical emissions hypothetical jobs but in Alberta of course people are very excited by those hypothetical jobs right but what killed it. Finally this week. Oh a few things. Different things killed it. I would be The decision pointed had Facing staring in the face Cabinet was supposed to It's deadline was this week whether it would approve the project reject the project. Or maybe give it some kind of deferral or delay and that's the cabinet in Ottawa. That's the at the Federal Cabinet Justin Trudeau's cabinet and for many reports a lot of cabinet ministers and certainly backbench. Mp's very split on this project. There was a lot of opposition a lot of these. Mp's are from you know. None of them are from Alberta. They're all from other provinces mostly in the east and those are places where there are not tantalized by this prospect of Seven thousand potential oil sands jobs. They think more about the the natural disturbance in an area that's actually in a bison range Very close to a UNESCO World Heritage Site National Park the Wood Buffalo National Park up on the border with North West territories and they would have seen this potential for four point one megatonnes of carbon emissions in the future Per year as we're looking to whoever deuce our carbon emissions normally and this is what tech and this is what other governments were used to This approval process cabinet decision. Making process was pretty much a rubber stamp if the technical review and the federal and provincial panels say this projects okay with conditions. That's what the federal government said liberal and Conservative in the past. They all approved it. That's why we have so many oil sands projects and a whole bunch more that are approved but not built yet. It's different times are shifting. The public public attention is shifting. Investor mood is shifting and so it's quite natural that a liberal government would shift with those times and have be hesitant on whether to approve this or not with this hesitation. Clearly tech thought. Maybe we're not going to get this. Maybe our lease is going to have a big fat rubber no stamp on it instead of a rubber stamping. Yes go ahead. So they decided rather than risk losing this project they pulled it. So what would be the rationale behind that as opposed to just letting the process play one way or another? I mean there are a couple theories out there. One is that a company wants to save face. It wasn't one all of its good intentions. All of its Its efforts to project a good project with good environmental credentials. All of its support for first nations in the region. They don't want all that to be faced with rejection. That's kind of a corporates much That basically what you do is not good enough for the federal government even though this is the defacto defacto message like that still. That's that's the reason you want to put this over. Check this out on your own terms. You want to be able to say what you say rather than Ottawa. Having its say on you another possible Rationale for this is that what are the reports that there is that they were feeling they were feeling that this was going to be delayed and they've sunk so much money into this more than a billion dollars into this planning and consultation process thus far project is valued at basically nothing in the markets according to a good global mail report haunt from their mining reporter and they just want to cut their losses another theory and this is one that I are partially hold. Is that what they had? Right now wasn't oil sands lease. They had a piece of land up in Northeast. Alberta with a proposed mine on it if they had approved mine on it approved mine project on this land. It's worth a bit where he can sell it to likely to find somebody else to take it forward. If this mining comedy didn't want to take this forward if they have rejected mine on it. This land is good for Bison and nature and not much else if they have if they have a hold withdrawn agreement on this proposal on this land. There's still the potential for somebody. Maybe someday in the future under some different government or some of their different perspective with a different proposal maybe with different terms to pick this up again so it could potentially salvage value in this lease. Although I would suggest that it's probably pretty nil at this point so I know you said that in Alberta it's kind of been a hypothetical For a longtime but there were at least a lot of hypothetical jobs in revenue there. So how has Albert or maybe just the leaders in Alberta because I don't WanNa pay the whole province With the brush but how is the Alberta government been taking the news the Alberta government like much you know is very aligned with a lot of the investor community in Alberta oil sands sector and a lot of the populace in oil producing regions like Fort mcmurray? And at least it was the idea that the there could be jobs in the future oil sands rests on two separate separate entities. I mean the whole soil says boo was to its operations actually producing oil sands and growth expanding oil sands and actually the big. The big source of jobs are in constructing these oil sands project and developing these oil sands projects and for years and years and years the big growth for Murray was not the people who actually mind. The product is people who build those minds and build those giant well sites and build the camps and all according structure around those the big boom ended because nobody was putting forward more projects to keep expanding back in two thousand eighteen Ford hills mine Which is the closest mine up to this? Where Tech was going. It opened a big mine owned by SUNCORP now. She partially owned by Tech Resources. It was called at the time in two thousand eighteen. Probably the last big oil sands mine. And that's because no other company was putting them forward except for tech resources. Big Long Shot Project. I may never be built. But but there was excitement in the oil sands community and in the government and in the sector because the potential the idea that another mind could be built is a jobs. Bonanza and sort of jobs bonanza we were used to Albert at developed this province as the screaming Beeman economic superpower. But that we haven't had so the idea that there could be another big mine on the books for when oil prices potentially rose again and it was approved the green light from Ottawa despite all our climate talk That was exciting. The that that the potential is snuffed. Out is a major disappointment here in. Alberta. Who are they blaming? For that disappointment because one thing. I will note is that this wasn't killed by Ottawa. Or was it almost killed by Ottawa? A even if they didn't rubber stamp it it was almost killed by Ottawa. That was the sense you know largely Ottawa. Ottawa was the decision maker in this point and if tech was very confident that this was going to get an approval they would have just Let that happen and would have been fine and Alberta would have been generally mall pleased that this was at least a in our project that could go forward right you know and do people here think Oughta killed it. Of course they do. This is the resource sector in government and Jason Kenny and Justin Trudeau. You know they are predisposed to blaming and directing scorn almost entirely Justin Trudeau for something and in this opportunity. They have a lot of. They have a lot of evidence that argues in their favor that had their Bandai conservative government or had there been a more classical government that just rubberstamps projects and doesn't really take into account all the cumulative impacts of Oil Sands Development and climate liability and climate risk. The this project would have

"energy projects" Discussed on AlgaTalk

"Talkers on this episode. We are going to discuss the holy grail of algae biofuel. There's been a long history of research into making biofuel out of algae to discuss this topic with me is maxwell where it was doing. Research Research into the photosynthetic capacity and highlight tolerance of algae we also discussed with dr where algae mutation and genetic engineering. I like to call free. You know g without further ADO. Here's Max ax. where and his research into algae few? I'm currently a post doc researcher mom working at Colorado State University in appears left. We Positive Yeah Grand Department of Energy Projects so we have collaborated at Enron. The National New Energy Alive down at the State University all others minds so it's a real collaborative project what I'm interested in what we're working on specifically how we we can improve photosynthetic efficiency. Yeah there is you can make algae optimal energy. Then you've got more energy stories pump hounds to extract downstream to make fuel intermediate's the project that you're working with is funded directly by the US government and under what department. Yeah so the Department of Energy the soap department. Don't you want to use that word. bioenergy technologies veto. We are working with a couple of species of microalgae. One of them firefighters it and another diet fad. Dr Them One of the model Oldham's and you're working with attack them Yeah Yeah Dr. Newton's the town I'm guessing there's different families within. Yeah yeah there's other species tallow or things like that per day arose from a different and those in by also to hear the kind of green algae or Raji which would be the difference between Diet. Tom Green Ounces Yes exactly yes. So they can go through different cyanobacteria and then not created a whole different evolutionary species. So you're saying that diatoms came from cyanobacteria so it was from from a different event they like engulf or the organisms. And that's why we. How things like a corpse genome is different from the nuclear genome? Day of of being inherited a started out biotic relationship you had the car. o collapsed was able to fix carbon dioxide and carry out both synthesis but Extra Sal Tadpole that is incorporated in that was protective layer. And that was kind of what was offered they through. Different Endo symbiotic collaboration and evolved. And now we have like the epicenter oxygen generators on the planet with something comes from data thumbs ecological species to species again that that you working with in bio field yet. One of them is desma dismas green algae or coral fights also there. You know we see them in that green being a powerful a inquiry will be And have a couple of different distinct coordinates an end you have yet diatoms and we have different chlorophyll so they have chlorophyll a incorrigible see and then a different set of noise as well. So this includes which is located doc gates and that Brown Brown pulled up so they look completely different and apple pie from parts of the ocean and capture different wavelengths of light. So what you're saying is that they are green algae but they kinda Kinda Brownish. No I mean we call them Brown brown algae so they contain yet. This corrupt inaugural hookah down which I knew a little bit more about my project from ran on why that's important but that salary of fighter is what they across Applied Assan. Typically can you tell me why like each one is important for your research in biofuel yes they are one of the highest naturally naturally producing liquid organisms. So obviously that's really important for biodiesel so you can have an organism. That naturally accumulates lots of lipids. Then you don't need to engineer air and mobile organism to stop producing lipids kind of like a natural short rarely easy to transform and the genome fully equal. And so. There's lots of things that we know about it like certain proteins. They have or enzymes that when we developing potential fuel avenues. No He's great. If you've genome UNBELIEV- sequence because you can specifically target genes that you want to say knock out knocking and then desma desma. That's the major organism. I'm working on and and that was screened by a private company and was found to be really fast growing organism. US Department of Energy Project. That I'm working on. It was going through kind of proof of concept. So can we take an organism. The Hudson being fully sequenced. But we just think it grows quickly and then can we improve every three staff of the biofuel process in olden is and I'm hearing from the name that it sounds like a desmond almost so it's part of the greater group called Senate Asmus which photo that is getting a lot of our ruled by a few projects working on that organism sequence analysis. They found this was slightly different from the Senate Asmus group and that's why it was reclassified but these if you look like Senate asthmas and desma is that costume amazing morphology so the one I'm studying business has missed office. And he's a kind of play on almond and it looks like as homes ready who can pull full south. Stacks these Like antenna phones on the end. You're saying that you can change. Its morphology changes itself. How does that help in biofuel so if there's changes morphology from what I've been studying looking at it seems to be like Ph dependent but also some other groups of classified is like a defense response and the organisms so basically if it clusters foods rose into the biggest structures so tetris structures than it's heavier it can sink to the bottom and then basically avoid predation on things like water lobby and I'm guessing that it is able to get heavier and float to the bottom allows it to it? It means it has made maybe more lipids. It's heavier it allows for are better biofuel in the end yeah I mean one of the kind of the big obstacles way trying to develop by make them. More efficient is the downstream downstream processing as. What's most expensive? So one of the huge things to do with is like flocculation all centrifugation. So if you have these ponds that's how you collect the algae from the bond and separated so if you have a species that naturally sings then you can save yourself a lot of energy expenditure by that like having collect those and spin those down or passed you know thousands of gallons of media through filters and collect them off that so the the idea is if you're growing this and raceway Peng's whereas on the continual mixing if you stop mixing the culture the algae will just sink an basically you'll have this layer of coach And then all the media on tall so it would actually be accused of cost saver interesting. So the idea would maybe while you're growing at some point meantime during the harvest to stop the circulation. Let it sink and then collect everything from the bottom direct. Sometimes it can be a little pain to grow when he's trying trying to sink all the time and obviously I want to kind of have maximum light penetration to approach Then having something saying lays in the Boston the frustrating but in the long term. It's definitely positive the way I'm growing everything is simulated environments for collaborators growing them in Arizona replicating the light intensities the daylight curation during summer months at temperature. fluxes that are going through. So it's the three night eighteen and thirty four degrees. I'm going them through on you. You know with Donald Cycle so the idea is once we send them down to Arizona into these raceway palms all of a sudden as algae that we've been reading in a highly selective lobby environment environment is going to crash so we've been trying to do everything we can to replicate. What will happen outdoors but in those on the smallest Georg? I mean if you start looking into the literature of culturing algae I love things are kind of like a hundred. Yeah yeah I always say growing algae growing magic. I have no idea what it's doing most of sometimes I can just a side note your cool talking about all this is this okay within your research to announce.

Clean Energy's Ever-Changing Policy Risk

"In the summer of two thousand eight Britta von Essen took an internship with a major investment bank after wrapping up business school. It was considered at the time one of the top places to work it was with a company called Lehman Brothers and it was actually a fascinating summer. I was working in their global power group but focused on renewable energy and you know there was a lot going on at the time. Tax Equity was really ramping up. People were figuring out how the structuring was going to work with that. There are a couple. IPO's that were right on the horizon so it was a fascinating summer from renewables perspective and also what was going on at Leeman. It's been an unnerving week for US financial markets and now the potential collapse of Lehman Brothers once the fourth largest investment firm in the US at at that time. Lehman Brothers was the top investor in renewables it had bought big portfolios of wind and solar projects. It was a leading equity investor and it was helping take companies public it was an exciting time but as the summer war on market conditions worsened investors got nervous in things got grim for Leman analysts say the bank's future is in doubt out afterward reported a loss of nearly four billion dollars in the last quarter. Leman brothers is suffered heavy losses as a result of the US housing slump while I was there. It was just constant reassurance that that these cycles are normal and and you know financial markets go through this occasionally and everything was going behind of course it was not fine be one of the watershed days in financial markets histories. He was a manic manic Monday in the financial markets. The Dow tumbled more than five hundred points after two pillars of the street tumbled over the weekend leman brothers or one hundred and fifty eight-year-old firm filed for bankruptcy in the lead up to the Leeann bankruptcy in the fall. IPO's fell apart project financing dried up and cleantech companies beneath loans underwritten by the bank were suddenly exposed to risks. They didn't foresee. BRITTA had a front row seat to all of it. After leaving lemon she picked up and moved to Italy where she helped build wind and solar projects for a German developer soon after she witnessed yet another period of chaos the swift rollback of feed in tariffs the Italian market came to a screeching screeching halt. It did teach me a lot about developer resiliency the fundamental optimism that is required to be of renewable energy developer and and taking the long view on a lot of these projects so British took those lessons and apply them to the next chapter of her career. She now advises clean energy companies knees on how to manage risk so you've managed to witness the collapse of one of the biggest investment banks and one of the biggest European renewable energy markets back to back. That's quite an entrance into the industry well. I swear it's not me I'm not the not the driver and all of this but I think what it taught me was that things change and the markets move and those that are resilient and those that figure out how to work in the new paradigms that they're given are the ones who are successful so I've taken a huge amount of those lessons into my current job and into my current business where I'm basically advising folks how to roll with the ever changing markets that we see in wind and solar. I'm Stephen Lacey in this episode produced in partnership with Cohnresnick and cohnresnick capital talking talking with British Ivano sin about those ever changing market conditions today Britta's a managing director at cohnresnick capital over the last decade. She's seen all kinds of market risk mostly expiring or changing policies that create financial risk you know I it was the sixteen o three grant expiring then it was. ITC expiring PTC's stepping down. What are the safe harbor policies we we didn't even get the IT safe safe harbor policies until fairly recently. I think it's just a fundamental aspect of this industry. It's Salat about planning for the unexpected in British. Job is to help figure out how to get renewable energy deals done in the face of those challenges so I sat down with her to unpack some of those policy uncertainties and what they mean for renewables and I wanted to know how often does policy change derail projects so I have. You've worked on project many projects that were potentially derailed that we manage to work around various policy changes. I think change in tax law was a really interesting time where we had to figure out how to keep the investors active of an investing in two projects that would probably not be commissioned for another twelve months and how to get around the fact that there was a very likely change in tax law to be passed at that time and yet nobody knew exactly what that was going to look like. I think this PG bankruptcy recently and the California I think it was a be ten fifty four the wildfire response bill that has been high in the mind of a lot of California developers at the moment who were focused on contracts with sce NASD Johnnie and whether or not those credit ratings. We're GONNA take ahead that policy was passed and I think both of those organizations are are quite secure and short up and that was that was great news for California winging developers across the board with or without contracts well. Let's walk through some of the big drivers and uncertainties around them so you mentioned. PG Ag any I'd like to talk about PG and understand. What are you now looking for in a bankruptcy proceeding what kind of risks to contracts tracks are there currently what has been sorted out and what's still left to be sorted out that would impact renewable energy developers so I believe there is still still quite a bit of uncertainty as far as the potential for PG any to cancel contracts that are considered out out of market today so these would be some of the earlier vintage. PPA's there are several conversations and I know cohnresnick has been a part of several several of these about trying to restructure this through bilateral negotiations with pg any and kind of nipping in the bud lead and coming to a good solution for all parties but otherwise I think there is still a strong degree of uncertainty here there there are investors who are then making plays in this and trying to pick up these assets making a bet as to whether or not there will be restructuring of the contracts are not as as well as you know. It's an unfortunate situation but it's certainly a very active group of projects and sponsors that are figuring out working working through how to navigate that uncertainty. Let's go to tax equity. The solar investment tax credit is now facing the beginning of its step down schedule this is obviously going to impact the economics of project development but we have had some clarity on this step down unscheduled for for years now how is facing down the IDC GONNA change the way projects are financed and does it present any risks that were not there previously so you're right. There is a very clear step down schedule which I think has been helpful for folks trying to new forecasts what this looks like that being said given the safe harbor provision. I would venture that there is a generic assumption option from those who are procuring. PPA's at the moment that their assets that their projects will be safe harbored many of the major. I pee pees Jason. Strategic are making significant safe harbor place. They are you know doing this both for their own projects jags and under the assumption that there will be Ebony advantages over the next few years which I agree with. I think a lot of these developers that are procuring making this assumption are going to limit themselves to buyers of the assets that can then fulfill the safe harbor in order to meet the Economics Amax. What do you think the chances of an extension of the investment tax credit are. I know that the Solar Energy Industries Association has all of a sudden and put this back on their priorities list. They think maybe there's an opening to extend the federal tax credit. What do you think the chances of that arc given what you know so there's a couple a couple aspects of this that are important absolutely it would be beneficial to the industry right that being said we are months away from the step down last time this extension happened. I think we had a good twelve months of lead time so it allowed loud folks to plan at least partially accordingly in this case you would actually jam up probably some more some of the more major players who have made significant safe harbor plays that would have been capital that was not necessary to deploy a and potentially at pricing that is not beneficial to their assets so there are mixed mixed feelings throughout the industry about this. I think there is a decent chance I also think it's interesting giving kind of the economic markets at the moment and the potential for a downturn. Let's call it in the next twelve to eighteen months renewable such a critical component of job security and job growth in the US economy at the moment that especially if we're facing some type of downturn it may increase congressional and government support for some type of extension here. What about the storage tax credit. That's been floating around Congress for for a long time if there is this renewed push for potential solar. It see where does the storage. I T C fit in there would would it be something separate. Would it be wrapped together. And what do you think the chances of getting this thing finally pastor. I think the storage credit is actually much more critical critical than the than the solar one in the in the near term here I think with Alda we will continue to have murkiness around trying trying to loop storage into either wind or solar tax credits which is is just messy. It's hard for investors to get their heads around it. Just adds a lot of confusion and it also limits what you can do from adding storage onto existing renewable energy projects objects. I think throughout the energy community there is a consensus that storage is a critical component that needs to be deployed on a large scale will in order for renewables to continue on the growth. It is an in order to hit. Some of these are targets hundred percent in California boring. If for example you you have to have the storage component there otherwise you're facing you know a variety of issues on you know intermittent see or demand or any variety of aspects so. I am a little more bullish on the storage tax credit. I I think a standalone tax credit does a lot to simplify and streamline financing aspects for storage whether or not it connected to renewables and whether or not commissioned at the same time as the

Carbon offsets 101: How they work and how to get the biggest bang for your buck

"Carbon offsets one. Oh one i'm n._p._r. Chief meteorologist paul hutton her her. This is climate cats. They're called carbon offsets and you can buy them to offset your greenhouse gas emissions. But how do they work work. And how do you know they're really offsetting. Your carbon. Emissions maggie lund is a manager for greenie certification programs at the center for resource solutions nations megi. Thanks for talking today. Thanks all carbon offsets. One o-on what are they yes so a carbon offset is really just just a tradable purchaseable greenhouse gas emissions reduction so as a consumer you can go out and buy a carbon offset and apply that carbon offset to your own carbon footprint and negate or diminish your own carbon footprint so an easy example is let's say i drive cross cross country from san francisco to new york. If i calculate the greenhouse gas emissions from that trip i can go out and buy a corresponding number of offsets <unk> an zero out the emissions from that trip. Let's take an airline flight for example. What would a typical offset for an airline flight across the u._s._a. Cost me there is a pretty wide range of prices for different kinds of offsets depending on different kinds of benefits associated with that offset offset so with some offsets just the straight up emissions reduction in which case it would be a little bit cheaper probably around. I'd say five to seven dollars depending on who you're buying from a that's a rough estimate <hes> but if you wanna buy offset that has some attached co benefits which is other kinds of environmental or social benefits associated with the carbon offset project. That's gonna cost you a little bit more so let's say i do that. What what actually happens to the money. Where does it go when you think about a carbon offset generated all across the world it could be you know implementing energy the efficient technologies. It could be a renewable energy project. It could be a project with improved forestry practices. One of the core principles of carbon in offsetting is that without the revenue from the carbon offset or the carbon credit. The emissions reduction would have never happened so your investment as a consumer consumer into that carbon offset is what is driving the emissions reduction to happen in the first place. How is that verified. How do i know are the buyer no that that offset offset is working one of the most important if not the most important things to look out for as a consumer is what we call project level certification you know the carbon carbon offset market could potentially be a wild west if there wasn't some oversight of the projects themselves to make sure that the emissions reductions are quantified in a consistent and credible way so as a consumer when you're going out to buy these offsets. It's really important to make sure that the project project the offset is from has been certified at the project level because that certification body is the one that's going boots on the ground to the project to make sure that emissions actually are being reduced and they're the ones coming out with different processes and methodologies to quantify those emissions reductions so so let's say i i'm taking my flight right and i feel a little guilty about my greenhouse gas contribution for that flight i buy i buy my offset and and i've certified that it's legit. It's going somewhere. That's legit what would be a specific example of kind of offset project that that money would go towards. It's so a carbon offset project could look like a situation where normally a forest would be cut down but because of the investment into into this carbon offset project day avoid the deforestation in which case the trees remain standing and carbon dioxide is absorbed for years into the future church so as a consumer. What you're specifically doing is funding that avoided deforestation. It's probably worth noting that forestry projects six generally cost a little bit more to buy from than some traditionally less appealing project types so in the u._s. We see a lot out of what we call. Methane capture projects. That's where methane is captured in flared off into carbon dioxide which is less potent greenhouse gas than methane but they're you're still emissions coming from the project so you can argue that some projects are not only more attractive but you might have more holistic benefits as well well well and that's a great question because you know big picture. How effective are these offsets. Is there a more direct way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions rather than off set them after they're already in the atmosphere. Absolutely you know the the logic in the industry is generally reduce what you can offset what you can't it so carbon offsets are just one tool in a really big toolbox of activities consumers can engage in to <hes> reduce their carbon urban footprint so one is purchasing carbon offsets but another is just reducing your own emissions by installing energy efficient technologies or buying renewable energy or doing in a whole host of other things so what offsetting isn't is a permit to pollute. What about the airlines are are they already making carbon offsets part of the ticket price or they think that there's demand there for that in the future. I think there's absolutely demand for that in the future. I know that for some airlines they offer carbon offsets. Let's is kind of a back of the seat. You know you have your touch screen and you can navigate to the page where they allow you to buy. Carbon offsets to offset that flight but i don't know that it's necessarily built built into the price of the airline ticket yet although it is worth mentioning that there is this international initiative that's coming up. It's called corsica and it's something i think all countries eventually have to sign onto where international flights must be offset and that's coming up in the next decade or so. It's a program of the u._n. Baton and the criteria for those offsets is still being determined. It's kind of in flux but it is really looking to shake up. Not only the carbon offset market the the aviation industry is well. I can just see it now. When you log onto book your flight <hes> book your seat to check your bag and check the box for carbon offset right love love it yeah maggie lund for greenie certification programs that the center for resource solutions.

Trump signs orders targeting states' power to slow energy projects

"President Donald Trump's allegiance to oil and gas production was on display again today as the aim to make it harder for states to block pipelines and other energy projects due to environmental concerns at the urging of business groups Trump was to sign two executive orders designed to speed up oil and gas pipeline projects that action comes after officials in Washington state and New York use the permitting process to stop new energy projects in recent years less than a week ago. Nearly a dozen business groups told EPA administrator Andrew Wheeler that the environmental review and permitting process for energy projects as become a target for advice. Mental activists states that oppose the production and use of fossil fuels the business group said in that April fifth letter that individual states shouldn't be able to use provisions of the clean water act. To dictate national policy thereby harming other states, the national interests and damaging cooperative federal ISM, Washington state blocked, the building of a coal terminal in two thousand seventeen saying there were too many major harmful impacts including air pollution rail-safety had vehicle traffic. New York regulators stopped a natural gas pipeline saying it failed to meet standards to protect streams, wetlands and other water resources. Under a section of the law companies must get certification from the state before moving ahead with an energy project and mental groups described Trump's order as an effort to short circuit a state's ability to review complicated projects putting it risk estates ability to protect drinking water supplies and wildlife the center for biological diversity said the orders would Mark the fourth time. Trump is news such steps to. Streamline permits for fossil fuel it for structure. Trump's order would direct the transportation secretary to propose a rule allowing liquefied natural gas to be shipped in approved rail tank cars and the labor secretary to review whether investment fund managers who invest based on social goals are fulfilling their responsibility to maximize shareholder returns, the second executive order would ease the process for energy projects that cross international borders. Currently the secretary of state has the authority to issue permits for cross-border infrastructure such as pipelines the executive order clarifies that the president will make the decision on whether to issue such permits. The move follows Trump's decision last month to issue a new presidential permit for the long stalled keystone excel oil pipeline. Two years after he first approved it more than a decade after it was first proposed Victoria, wicks has more from rapid city, South Dakota. Federal courts involved in the keystone exile controversy at this point a Montana. Federal judge issued an injunction stopping construction late last year entrance Canada and the US State Department appealed that decision to the night circuit court of appeals those cases were filed in response to the permit President Donald Trump issued in January two thousand seventeen just after he took off his that permit delegated authority for the process to the State Department now that there is a new permit federal attorneys have asked the ninth circuit to terminate the appeal as moot and vacate the Montana court's injunction in a brief filed the ninth circuit the feds contend that. The president's actions are not subject to requirements of the administrative procedures act or the national environmental Policy Act. The federal brief notes several agencies are reviewing the project, including the bureau of land management, the fish and Wildlife Service and the army corps of engineers, the indigenous environmental network and north coast rivers alliance responded with a suit filed back in Montana federal court the environment. Analysts agree that Trump had not only the thirty, but the duty to revoke the two thousand seventeen permit, but they say Trump intruded into congressional authority when he issued the new permit in late March pipeline opponents say congress has the authority under the constitution to regulate foreign and interstate commerce and Trump's order violates that clause. Environmentalists are asking the Montana federal judge defined that the new presidential permit is without legal force and effect and to keep the injunction against construction in

"Abby Coney in the KOMO weather center as it has been for the last three hours or so it's fifty four degrees and cloudy and Seattle today. President Trump has signed a pair of executive orders to quote help American energy companies. Void. Unnecessary red tape. Washington Post political reporter to- Lou alot Renita is following the story and spoke to komo's Bill O'neil toll. The what do these orders saying what might they mean? The president is trying to reduce some of the red tape that he believes makes it difficult for oil and gas companies to get their infrastructure in the ground and working in what the president is frustrated with is that the federal government can give permits and allow various boiling gas companies to move forward. But the state government government, especially in places like California, Washington state, New York state. They are putting in regulations that say that if the environmental quality, the water quality, not up to par that they will not allow these pipelines, these various oil and gas infrastructure projects to move forward to the president basically finding executive orders to try to clarify some of the regulations that show how much power that's base can have over the process now the president. A little bit limited in terms of what the federal government can actually do without actually changing the law, but he's going to try to push as far as possible with these executive orders to show that the state power over infrastructure projects over should be more limited could these be gained changing orders. In terms of how the energy industry of move forward from here. They're more minor in terms of their actual impact. There's sort of starting to spend the conversation for how things may move forward and the future. It's really more of a regulation change where the president and the Trump administration will be trying to set forth regulations that will make it easier for some of these companies move forward. But at the end of the day, it has to be negotiate with the state the federal government cannot override the space on number of these issues. Those going to be the beginning of a process. So I wouldn't say that it a game changer at this point. They have to believe there could be some legal shoes to drop in all of this, especially in states, like Washington state, which have records of suing the Trump administration that are focusing heavily on clean energy. Anyway. Yeah. That's exactly right, clean water act law that a lot of these states have been relying on a lot of the base of been using the provisions of the clean water act. Do take the Trump administration to court and the states have the authority to basically govern the what would require them to make sure that they have clean water within the bounds of their state. And these new regulations that the president is going to be pushing Ford does not change the actual deflation, but not change the law of clean water act. The states Bill have some power to try to go to court if necessary to protect their interest under the clean water act and say that until congress changes the clean water act that the Trump administration cannot just use executive orders and executive action to strip away the rights of the states to govern the water quality within their space to say where a pipeline can go where they can't go that's political reporter till allure Nipah you can read more online at washingtonpost dot com.
