Over the barrel: Preparing for the advanced, new energy maps

Over the barrel: Preparing for the advanced, new energy maps


This is because they will be influenced not just by economics and technology, but also by politics and public activism.This is as a result of they are going to be influenced not simply by economics and expertise, but in addition by politics and public activism.

By Vikram S Mehta

This article just isn’t a ebook overview. It is, nevertheless, impressed by one—Daniel Yergin’s glorious, newest publication ‘The New Map: Energy, Climate and the Clash of Nations’. Dan is the greatest identified and most revered chronicler of energy historical past and politics at present. His earlier books have all been bestsellers. One of those, ‘The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power’, obtained the Pulitzer Prize. The motive I made a decision to attract on ‘The New Map’ is as a result of it throws up an essential query for our decision-makers. How ought to a big, import-dependent, fossil-fuel-based growing economic system with a rising demand for energy and an unhealthily robust linkage between this demand and environmental air pollution navigate the reordered cartography of geopolitics and energy?

Dan has envious abilities. He writes fluidly in a mode that brings to life the arcane dynamics of the energy enterprise. He is deeply educated and analytically prescient. The ‘New Map’ is a superb learn as a result of by a number of interconnected storylines, it pulls collectively the transformative occurrences which have formed the energy world in recent times right into a cogent framework from which the reader can discern the future pathways of the subsequent energy transition.

Six broad themes outline the ‘New Map’. The first is the US shale revolution, which reworked the US from a serious importer of oil and gasoline to a major exporter; the second is the leveraging by Russia of its gasoline exports to compel, on the one hand, former members of the Soviet Union to remain inside its sphere of affect and, on the different, to embrace China into an energy partnership (Russia wants markets; China wants energy); the third is China’s assertion of its rights over the South China Sea—a important maritime route for its energy imports—and the Belt and Road Initiative to position the ‘Middle Kingdom in the center of the reordered world economic system’; the fourth is the sectarian strife (Sunni/Shia) in the Middle East, which, compounded by unstable and falling oil costs, has introduced the area to the edge; the fifth is the Paris Climate Summit and its affect on public sentiment, funding selections, company governance and regulatory norms; and the final is the consequential affect of the manifold and spectacular development of unpolluted energy applied sciences.

The ‘new maps’ should not easy. They don’t present a transparent path. They counsel, as an alternative, the energy transition will unfold in numerous methods in numerous nations and over completely different time intervals. This is as a result of they are going to be influenced not simply by economics and expertise, but in addition by politics and public activism.

The ‘new maps’ increase a number of questions for India. How would possibly they affect its goal to offer dependable, reasonably priced, clear and common entry to energy? Who will bear the value of the transition? In explicit, the value of retrofitting the industrial infrastructure and of upgrading the grid to handle the intermittent movement of photo voltaic and wind energy? How can it stop the ‘good storm’ of excessive unemployment (viz. laid-off coal employees), stranded belongings (thermal energy crops), slowed financial development and environmental degradation? How life like is a inexperienced transition for an economic system nearly completely depending on fossil fuels?

The ‘new maps’ don’t present solutions to such India-specific questions. They do, nevertheless, present a framework for deliberating coverage choices. Specifically, they throw up three coverage initiatives set alongside the twin axis of fossil gas and renewables.

On the fossil gas axis, the ‘new maps’ counsel the authorities leverage its purchaser (monopsonistic) energy to safe ‘most favoured’ phrases of commerce for crude provides. In this regard, they create out one improvement that performs to India’s benefit. The onset of ‘peak oil demand’ (i.e. demand will plateau earlier than provide depletes). The earlier concern was ‘peak oil provide’ (i.e. provides are finite and the market will face a shortfall). There isn’t any consensus, nevertheless, on the timing of peak demand. BP believes, for occasion, it has already peaked; the International Energy Agency (IEA) initiatives it is going to peak by 2028; IHS Markit’s ‘rivalry’ state of affairs places the date round the mid-2030s. Saudi Arabia, on the different hand, and never surprisingly, holds that oil has an extended runaway and demand is not going to peak till not less than 2050. There is, nevertheless, broad-based settlement that the oil market does face a structural provide overhang. All settle for that Sheikh Yamani, the former minister of petroleum for Saudi Arabia, was prescient and on observe when, in 2000, he (reportedly) stated that “thirty years from now, there will likely be big quantities of oil and no purchaser. The Stone Age got here to an finish not as a result of we ran out of stones. The oil age is not going to finish due to lack of oil.” (I write ‘reportedly’ as a result of the quote has been attributed to others.)

On the renewable axis, the ‘new maps’ would counsel two coverage initiatives.

One, India should develop its personal world scale, aggressive, manufacturing techniques for passenger automobiles and battery storage. This is as a result of, in any other case, it is going to discover itself on the horns of a dilemma. It will be unable to offer reasonably priced photo voltaic models except it accepts the additional deepening of dependence on Chinese imports. Currently, China manufactures 75% of the world’s lithium batteries: 70% of photo voltaic cells, 95% of photo voltaic wafers, and it controls 60% of the manufacturing of the intermediate enter polysilica. It can also be seeking to safe a chokehold over a number of strategic minerals (equivalent to cobalt and nickel).

Two, India should put together a clear energy expertise technique. Technology is the reply to the energy transition. It is what’s going to carry the system to the tipping level of radical change. China recognises this truth. They have accordingly positioned clear energy R&D at the forefront of their ‘Plan 2025’. The India technique ought to establish related ‘breakthrough applied sciences’, set up the funding mechanisms and create the ecosystem for partnerships (home and worldwide). Specifically, as regards the latter, clear energy expertise gives an early and mutually-beneficial platform for collaboration between India and the Joe Biden administration.
