Has case for storing carbon in depleted North Sea oil fields been made?

Card image cap

AFTER the firm leading Scotland’s flagship Acorn carbon capture and storage project made a significant advance last week excitement is growing about the potential of the scheme but probably not by enough to silence doubters.
The Acorn scheme is expected to involve using depleted North Sea oil and gas fields to store carbon dioxide to help clean up what are seen as hard to decarbonise industries and support the development of clean hydrogen fuel.
Champions reckon such projects could play a big part in the fight against climate change and hold out the prospect that they could generate or support thousands of jobs across the supply chain.

A new study by National Grid revealed that 37% of UK adults feel humankind have passed the point of no return when it comes to climate change, with 10% believing it will never be solved.
National Grid has linked the British public’s pessimism towards a greener future to the lack of knowledge about the positive steps that have been taken to protect the environment.
The study found that 42% of Brits incorrectly believe Britain only gets 10% of its electricity from low and zero-carbon energy sources, when the country’s electricity is actually made up of 55% clean energy.
Similarly, close to a quarter of Brits believe the country generates 51-70% of its electricity from fossil fuels when the figure stands at 36%.

Tuesday, 20 April 2021
The latest figures from Cornwall Insight's Renewables Pipeline Tracker reveal the pipeline of renewable energy and storage projects across England, Scotland and Wales currently stands at 86 GW.
The research also shows 40.6 GW of sites are classified with a development status of "scoping". This is where sites are yet to submit a planning application but have a grid connection option confirmed through National Grid's Transmission Entry Capacity (TEC) Register. These scoping sites have been added to Cornwall Insight's analysis to account for the major increase in activity seen for early-stage projects, particularly offshore wind sites.
According to the Renewables Pipeline Tracker, a further 13.5 GW of pipeline capacity is currently classified as "application submitted" and awaiting planning approval; capacity classified as "awaiting construction" totals 24.5GW. Capacity classified as "under construction" stands at 7.8 GW.

Wokingham Liberal Democrats have joined the Labour Party in criticising the council’s plans for a massive solar farm in BARKHAM.
A plan to convert Barkham Farms into a solar farm with approximately 72,000 panels was submitted by Wokingham Borough Council on its planning portal on Thursday, April 8.
The council has argued the solar farm would provide the borough with much needed green energy.
However, the effectiveness of the proposed solar farm in cutting carbon emissions has been questioned by the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats.

The past 12 months following the first ‘stay at home’ Covid-19 instruction have thrown up countless challenges for fleet decision-makers.
Some have seen a surge in demand for services, resulting in a need to co-opt more vehicles at short notice to cope with requirements. Others have seen field-based staff now working from home, with their cars barely turning a wheel.
During the height of the pandemic, UK organisations stepped up to help save lives and keep the country running. 
These progressive essential services companies range from bluelight to postal, delivery firms to telecommunications, and utilities to housing associations.

Tue, 20th Apr 2021 16:15
(Sharecast News) - London stocks were well below the waterline at the close on Tuesday, dragged down by heavy losses in tobacco makers' shares following a Wall Street Journal report that the US administration was mulling capping the level of nicotine in cigarettes.

Red Cross offering free smoke alarms
Modified: 4/18/2021 5:47:32 PM
The American Red Cross of Massachusetts is on a mission to make more than 600 homes across the state safer between now and May 8.
Volunteers will meet with residents by appointment – either virtually or socially distanced outside their homes – to share crucial fire safety information, help create an escape plan, and practice a two-minute drill for free. In some communities, the Red Cross is working with partner fire departments to offer free smoke alarm installations when it becomes safe to do so.
“Home fires remain the most frequent disaster during COVID-19, yet most of us don’t realize we have just two minutes to safely escape,” said Holly Grant, CEO of the Red Cross of Massachusetts, in a prepared statement. “We’re still spending more time than ever inside during the pandemic, so it’s critical that we help our neighbors protect themselves from these everyday disasters.”

Syracuse firefighters put out house fire on East Side; residents escape
Updated 7:41 AM;
Syracuse, N.Y. — Residents safely escaped from a burning home early Monday on Syracuse’s East Side.
The Syracuse Fire Department rushed to 760 Westmoreland Ave. at 1:04 a.m. after a caller reported a fire. Crews arrived under 3 minutes later, firefighters said, and found a “heavy” fire engulfing the one-story, one-family home.
The people inside the home escaped before firefighters arrived. One resident was evaluated by American Medical Response, firefighters said.
The fire quickly spread from the first floor into the attic, forcing firefighters to cut a hole in the roof to free the heat and smoke filling the house, firefighters said. It was so smoky inside the home that the firefighters working inside could not see, firefighters said.

In early 2020, COVID-19 lockdowns led to reduced electricity demand around the world.
In Great Britain, the majority of the demand was covered by renewables, but this generation mix temporarily compromised the stability of the grid.
These insights into a future of decarbonized grids highlight the challenges we face but also how we might solve them.

Grenfell Tower residents treated as 'sub class citizens'

Grenfell Tower residents raised concerns about fire safety months before the fatal disaster but their fears were ignored and they were treated as 'sub class citizens', an inquiry has heard.  
Lee Chapman, the secretary of the Grenfell leaseholders' association, said he had raised concerns about bare gas pipes being run through the stairwell of the building - the only fire escape - during upgrade works in spring 2017.
However he was repeatedly refused an independent fire assessment of the building by the Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO). 
Mr Chapman told the inquiry: 'I feel that the way that these concerns were handled is a good reflection of the culture within the TMO and the attitude that it had towards Grenfell Tower residents at the time.
