Creating Resilience In Oil And Gas Supply Chains With Technology

The Covid-19 pandemic has everyone rethinking what steps to take for resilience today, and how to safeguard that resilience for an uncertain energy future. Nearly every oil and gas executive said, in the just released EY Oil and Gas Digital Transformation and the Workforce Survey, that their company will have to change how it operates coming out of the downturn. What’s implied by that result is that oil and gas executives don’t expect the market to ever go back to where it was.

They are right. Oil demand is unlikely to return to the path it was on before the pandemic. New ways of living, working and operating our day-to-day lives have taken hold and are likely to permanently transform traditional choices. When we get to

Remote teaching is about to get a little bit easier for thousands of teachers in Seattle Public Schools. The nonprofit organization “Two Screens for Teachers” announced Tuesday that it’s purchasing a second computer monitor for every teacher who needs one, and plans to deliver about 3,000 monitors at a value of around $430,000.

Started by a small group of Seattle startup veterans, Two Screens for Teachers aims to boost teacher productivity through added technology, helping to make remote instruction less stressful during the ongoing pandemic.

Matt Lerner and Mike Mathieu are behind the idea. They previously co-founded Walk Score, a Seattle startup that sold to Redfin in 2014. Their hope is that their latest cause will spread beyond Seattle and they can inspire techies in other cities to purchase monitors for the thousands

Solar the new ‘king of electricity’ as renewables make up bigger slice of supply: IEA

PARIS (Reuters) – Solar output is expected to lead a surge in renewable power supply in the next decade, the International Energy Agency said, with renewables seen accounting for 80% of growth in global electricity generation under current conditions.

In its annual World Energy Outlook on Tuesday, the IEA said in its central scenario – which reflects policy intentions and targets already announced – renewables are expected to overtake coal as the primary means of producing electricity by 2025.

The combined share of solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind in global generation will rise to almost 30% in 2030 from 8% in 2019, it said, with solar PV capacity growing by an average 12% a year.

“I see solar becoming the new king of the world’s electricity markets,” IEA

IPhone Delay Interrupts That Supply Chain Rhythm

Foxconn Technology Group is the most obvious example. Its Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. unit, which assembles iPhones at factories chiefly in China, posted a 21% drop in September sales Monday. It’s not alone. Largan Precision Co., which makes camera lenses for smartphones, reported a decrease of 22%. 

The declines resulted in a 7% fall in third-quarter revenue at Hon Hai, the largest for that period in over a decade. Largan had it worse, plummeting 20% for the quarter. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the major provider of chips for gadgets, is expected to post 11% quarterly growth when it reports sales Thursday. That’s respectable, but slower than recent quarters and could be further hurt by a a strengthening Taiwan dollar.

What makes the conundrum more revealing, and at the same time confusing, are the different tales being told at these companies. 

Largan’s woes, for example, aren’t limited to the iPhone
