Oettinger: EU needs €1 trillion investment in energy by 2020
 
01:32
The European Commission presented its new energy strategy yesterday (10 November), calling for €1 trillion of investment over the next decade to integrate Europe's energy network while fending off criticism over a lack of concrete ideas, EurActiv.com reported on Wednesday. The Energy 2020 strategy lays down priorities in five broad areas. It seeks to curb Europe's energy consumption with financial incentives to renovate Europe's energy-guzzling buildings and integrate the European energy market. Furthermore, it proposes to pursue an external EU energy policy, ensure Europe's leadership on innovative energy technologies and address consumer issues like making billing more transparent or making it easier to switch suppliers. "Over the next ten years, overall energy infrastructure investments in the EU of euro one trillion are needed," the Commission said in a statement. "By 2015 no member state should be isolated." The required investments would mainly come from the industry and consumers, who should prepare to finance some of the infrastructure costs with rising energy bills, said EU Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger. The EU budget's impact would be limited to projects of European interest and research, he added. The Commission also addresses delays in strategic infrastructure projects by proposing simplified permitting processes and setting a time limit for EU funding decisions.

MaximsNewsNetwork: EASTERN EUROPE'S ENERGY CRUNCH (THE WORLD BANK)
 
02:40
MaximsNewsNetwork: 17 March 2010 - The World Bank: The demand for energy in Eastern Europe and Central Asia is expected to increase fifty-percent by 2030, with demand for electricity alone, up by 90 percent. Without substantial new oil discoveries, the regions energy production could peak in the next ten to fifteen years. Combine this with an aging infrastructure, and widespread energy disruptions may become more common. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Thomson, Director for Sustainable Development, World Bank Group: We have the situation for example that occurred in January 2006, where in the city of Alchevsk in the eastern Ukraine, the district heating system collapsed in the middle of winter. Temperatures were about minus 30 Celsius. The city essentially became dysfunctional at that point. Children and the elderly had to be evacuated. Essentially no activity took place and the city was deserted until Spring. Ultimately the entire district heating system had to be rebuilt. Russia and Central Asia are major energy suppliers to both eastern and western Europe. But even so, the region as a whole will face an energy crunch that will slow economic growth. A ten percent shortfall in energy availability could lead to a one percent reduction in economic growth, and a bigger shortfall could have a bigger negative impact. The region was hit hard by the global financial crisis that began in 2008, dampening energy demand significantly. This is only a temporary pause before energy availability again becomes a serious concern. Once growth picks back up, so, too, will energy consumption. SOUNDBITE (English) Peter Thomson, Director for Sustainable Development, World Bank Group: The countries are going to need to invest something on the order of 3.3 trillion dollars over the next twenty years if they are to be able to meet the energy needs anticipated. 3.3 trillion dollars represents about 3 percent of cumulative GDP for that period of time. The countries themselves are not going to be able to finance that all with the public sector. Theyre going to need to find access to private capital, that means they have to pay attention to the investment environment that exists, and take actions to ensure it will be attractive for private capital to come in. According to the report, carbon emissions relative to production in the region are among the highest in the world. In 2005, Russia was the third-largest CO2 emitter in the world, after the United States and China. The regions European Union members have already started working on climate change, improving efficiency, and developing sustainable energy supplies. Other countries in the region will face increasing pressure to catch up, and quickly. The challenge will be generating additional energy quickly and cheaply in an environmentally sustainable way. ....................................... ................. ........................................ ...................

EU Energy Infrastructure is 'Aging Rapidly,' says Oettinger
 
02:03
The European Commission today presented its energy infrastructure priorities for the next two decades, aimed at making networks fit for the 21st century. In the Communication, the Commission defines EU priority corridors for the transport of electricity, gas and oil. This map of priorities will serve as a basis for future permit granting and financing decisions on concrete EU projects. The Communication defines a limited number of EU priority corridors for which urgent development is needed to deliver on European Union policy goals of competitiveness, sustainability and security of supply by connecting those member states which are almost isolated from other European energy markets, by massively strengthening existing cross-border interconnections and by integrating renewable energy into the network. Based on these pre-defined corridors, concrete projects of "European interest" will be identified in 2012, which should benefit from EU financing and building permits, including a time limit for final decision while ensuring full respect of EU law, in particular environmental legislation and public participation. In planning and implementing these projects, the Commission favours regional cooperation between countries. It further defines longer-term goals, such as "European electricity highways".

The World Bank is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. Our mission is to fight poverty with passion and professionalism for lasting results and to help people help themselves and their environment by providing resources, sharing knowledge, building capacity and forging partnerships in the public and private sectors. We are not a bank in the common sense; we are made up of two unique development institutions owned by 187 member countries: the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). Each institution plays a different but collaborative role in advancing the vision of inclusive and sustainable globalization. The IBRD aims to reduce poverty in middle-income and creditworthy poorer countries, while IDA focuses on the world's poorest countries. Their work is complemented by that of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID). Together, we provide low-interest loans, interest-free credits and grants to developing countries for a wide array of purposes that include investments in education, health, public administration, infrastructure, financial and private sector development, agriculture and environmental and natural resource management. The World Bank, established in 1944, is headquartered in Washington, D.C. We have more than 10,000 employees in more than 100 offices worldwide.

Fresh milk is not widely available in Tanzania because of small sale farming, hot weather and bad infrastructure. Thanks to the Dutch initiative Tanga Fresh there are fresh dairy products available in Tanzania's biggest city Dar es Salaam. The factory is set up by Dutchman Lút Zeilstra in 1996 as a joint-venture between a group of Dutch cattle farmers and a Tanzanian cooperation of farmers. At the moment about 3000 small scale farmers are participating in the company. News about Africa is very often filled with stereotyped images of famine, war and disease. But there is also another side to the continent. Fast-growing economies and investment opportunities. The Dutch production company Interactive Africa focuses its lens precisely on the innovative side of Africa with its online video reports Spark Africa.

 Also visit: www.africa-interactive.com Spark Africa is about innovative developments you hear little about. All the items are produced by African journalists and cameramen which creates a different dynamics compared to when a white European crew is used.

Among other fascinating reports comprising this 30-part video series, we take a look at how for example an entrepreneur from Friesland in the Netherlands has established a successful dairy business in Tanzania and how students from the University of Nairobi, Kenia, came about to invent a bicycle charger for mobile phones.

 The video reportages are a mix of portraits of Dutch entrepreneurs in Africa, African inventors and reports on fast-growing industries like the outsourcing of ICT work in Africa.
