    [$$] Opec strikes a deal, CO2 emissions rise but Shell targets cuts, historic US oil exports and the positives of electric scooters

    In the Austrian capital ministers from Opec members and their allies in what is often called the Opec+ group, including Russia and Kazakhstan, met to thrash out an agreement on how to maximise their revenues from the most-used fossil fuel, oil. In the Polish city, meanwhile, officials from about 195 countries, including the nations represented in Vienna, have been meeting to debate how the world should respond to the threat of catastrophic climate change created by the use of oil, coal and gas. In a sign of the careful handling needed to deliver the deal, the precise breakdown of the 1.2m barrels a day between countries was not revealed, although it was specified in the official communiqué that the cartel’s members would cut by 800,000 b/d and the non-Opec countries by 400,000 b/d.

    The company, which pledged to cut carbon dioxide emissions 80 percent by 2030 and 100 percent by 2050, operates two reactors in Minnesota that will become increasingly vital as wind and solar expand, Fowke said during an interview Friday. Xcel this week became the first major U.S. utility to pledge to fully phase out carbon.

    Trump Lifting Hurdle to Coal Plants No One Wants to Clear

    The Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday proposed easing Obama-era limits on carbon dioxide emissions from new and modified coal power plants, including a change that would remove a de facto requirement to use expensive carbon-capture technology at the sites. The proposal “would rescind excessive burdens on America’s energy providers and level the playing field so that new energy technologies can be part of America’s future,” acting Administrator Andrew Wheeler told energy lobbyists, free-market advocates, and others gathered at the EPA for the announcement. The carbon-capture requirement EPA is proposing to eliminate is one obstacle to building coal power plants, though economic and market realities have created much higher hurdles that analysts say will endure no matter what the Trump administration does.

    UPDATE 1-U.S. utility Xcel says aims to be carbon-free by 2050

    Xcel Energy Inc, one of the largest U.S. utilities, on Tuesday unveiled plans to accelerate its carbon reduction goals, saying sharply lower costs for renewable energy and investments in new technologies will allow it to deliver all carbon-free electricity to customers by 2050. The Minneapolis-based company, which currently produces 60 percent of its power from fossil fuels, said it will slash carbon emissions by 80 percent from 2005 levels by 2030, from a previous target of 60 percent, before going to zero in 2050. The company's ambitions stand in stark contrast to the federal government's pro-coal agenda under President Donald Trump, because they will likely further erode flagging U.S. demand for coal.

    Investors seek stability as they bail out of tech stocks

    Since stocks began tumbling two months ago, investors haven't abandoned the market. In recent weeks, as they've pulled money out of funds that invest in go-go technology companies, they've also been buying utilities, companies that make everyday necessities for consumers and other stocks that tend to have smaller swings in price than the rest of the market. It's part of a big shift in investor behavior as fears about rising interest rates, a global trade war and slowing economic growth around the world have roiled markets.
