China: winter gas crisis highlights wider market imbalances

An unusually early winter may lead to a repeat of last year's gas crunch in China. Surging consumption driven by particularly low temperatures is again leading to gas shortages, forcing suppliers to prioritize usage, and prematurely withdraw storage gas intended for use later in the winter. Capacity constraints in pipeline networks have further compounded the situation.

Chinese dominance in clean energy equipment will have worrying effect on energy politics

China's rise to become the world leader in the production of clean tech equipment and rare earth metals will have negative consequences for the West in both economic and political terms.
