India in talks with Russia to swap natural gas with China 7.12.2016 deccanherald.com
India is in early talks with Russia to swap natural gas with China and Myanmar as an alternative to building worlds most expensive pipeline costing close to USD 25 billion. The two nations had in October signed an initial pact for building a 4,500 km to 6,000 km long pipeline from Siberia to the worlds third biggest energy consuming nation. ONGC Videsh Ltd Managing Director Narendra K Verma said talks are on with Russian gas monopoly Gazprom for an alternative swap. "Myanmar sells gas to China through an existing pipeline. If Russia can provide equivalent gas to China, then we can reverse the flow of gas from Myanmar to China and bring that gas to India," he said on the sidelines of the Petrotech conference here. So in effect Russia will supply gas to China and in return China will give its share of gas from Myanmar to India. A smaller pipeline from Myanmar will need to be build into eastern India for importing that gas, he said. The swap is more economical but would require China and Myanmar coming on ...

Google Says It Will Achieve 100 Percent Renewable Energy Next Year 7.12.2016 Mother Jones
This story was originally published by the Guardian and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. Tech giants are jockeying to be the first to hit a 100 percent renewable energy goal. Google, which has invested in solar and wind energy for a decade, intends to get there by 2017. Google is the largest corporate buyer of renewable energy and plans to buy enough wind and solar energy to offset all the electricity used by its 13 data centers and offices in 150 cities worldwide, the company said Tuesday.

An Apple spokeswoman said the company has yet to set a year for when they would likely cross the finish line.

The company wouldn't say how much electricity it will need to have purchased by ...
