Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Keeping Up with COP28

by gmoke Thu Nov 30th, 2023 at 10:49:48 PM EST

As someone who scans the Internet to find energy/environment/climate events (mostly academic) around the world to publish Energy (and Other) Events Monthly (http://hubevents.blogspot.com), I found these online events which are intended to keep people informed about what is going to go on in Dubai during the Conference of Parties or COP28.  If you can't make it to the United Arab Emirates to participate, these events should provide you with the information you just might want or need.

RMI [Rocky Mountain Institute] at COP28
Multiple events from December 1 through December 12

Cop28 and the green transition, with Christiana Figueres and others
Tuesday, December 5
3:00 EST
Online
RSVP at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/cop28-and-the-green-transition-with-christiana-figueres-and-others-ticke ts-734770015897
Cost:  £10.88

Editorial Comment:  Christiana Figueres was the head of the UNFCC and, in my opinion, was one of the lynch-pins who made the Paris Agreement possible by concentrating on moving cities, states, and sub-national regions forward on climate after the debacle of the Copenhagen COP.  I've seen her speak a few times and she is extremely knowledgable, smart, and FIERCE.

Putting People at the Center of Just Transition:  How can we achieve a people-focused approach to a just transition?
Friday, December 8
[9.30-10.15 [UTC+4)]
Online
RSVP at http://pub.norden.org/cop28/-december-8-equality-just-transition.html#id03386

Online dialogue: COP28 post-match analysis

7:30 - 9am EST [13:30 - 15:00 CET]
Online
RSVP at http://www.eventbrite.se/e/online-dialogue-cop28-post-match-analysis-tickets-757617994817

Post-match analysis:  "It was a slam dunk by gut-check time but we kept our eyes on the ball and answered the bell.  Now the ball's in your court, Mr Monday-Morning Quarterback."

PS:  A lot of these events are archived online these days as well and can be found with a little effort.

thehill | Treasury proposes strict climate rules for lucrative hydrogen energy tax credit, 22 Dec
...[1] The proposal says that to get the tax credit, an electrolyzer would need to be fueled by new power sources as opposed to existing electricity that's already on the grid. [2] For the first few years of the guidance, it would allow the new renewable energy sources to generate power during the same year that it is used by the electrolyzer. Starting in 2028, however, the electricity would have to be produced within the same hour as it is used by the electrolyzer. [3] It would also be required to get power that's generated in the same geographic region where the electrolyzer exists.

Marty Durbin, senior vice president for policy at the Chamber of Commerce, said it also takes away an opportunity from the U.S. to be a leader on hydrogen after the European Union put similar rules in place to those proposed by the Biden administration....
