GEOSPATIAL INSIGHT’S SOLAR SERVICES PLAY A KEY ROLE IN IDENTIFYING SOLUTIONS TO THE ENERGY CRISIS

Millions of families in the UK risk being forced into fuel poverty after the energy price cap was increased in April leading to bills going up by £693 for 18 million households on standard tariffs. With further increases of up to £800 expected in October, when the energy price cap is next reviewed, it doesn’t appear there will be a reprieve any time soon. But what is specifically behind the energy crisis in the UK? What have other countries done to avoid similarly disastrous situations? What can the country do to mitigate the impact and help millions of citizens and businesses? And importantly, how can we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in favour of clean energy sources, such as solar power?

CONTANGO AT CHRISTMAS – WILL THE NEW YEAR BRING A LITTLE SEASONAL CHEER?

The long wind-down in timespreads at Cushing continued over the last few weeks with the January contract slipping into a shallow contango upon expiry earlier this week. That is reflective of the change in physical storage needs in the hub, inventories there having built a solid 7 million barrels since bottoming out in early November. In the last few weeks, several factors pulled in the same direction to help replenish Cushing levels, including the ramp-up of new midstream crude infrastructure bringing in additional volumes from Canada to the US Gulf, significant SPR releases in PADD-3, somewhat weak crude runs in PADD-2 (until recently), and even rising US onshore crude production.
