Energy security, gas, and CCUS
The team look over the past week of news and give their views on market trends in the energy sector
This week's news covers Octopus Energy's latest £1.2 billion (€1.38bn $1.49bn) move into the Asia-Pacific region. We report on TotalEnergies who announced the launch of its largest battery energy storage project (BESS) in Europe, and Repsol 's latest 1.7GW move into the Italian solar market.
This week we also bring back our PPA update. With announcements from big players in the energy market and beyond. Including Meta , Statkraft , Sonnedix and BayWa .
Also in this episode, we take a step back from the day-to-day concerns of the market and ask about how energy security concerns are changing the way that the UK uses energy. We ask how necessary natural gas will be in the short and medium term and question the necessity of CCUS technology as a stop-gap solution.
