Now the economy is changing. We need to experiment with new economic and political models. Thus, we must not only increase efficiency, but also innovate and look for new solutions. This will drive the new economic...

Although the pandemic has created a situation which calls for fundamental changes in nearly every industry, the world was especially stirred by the news of a drop in greenhouse gas emissions and a slump in the price of oil and other non-renewable energy sources. This unenviable situation in the oil market has serious implications for the stability of the global economy, inevitably creating the...

Before the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus emerged and the COVID-19 pandemic started, life used to be quite normal for all of us living in Slovenia, Europe or across the globe. In our fast-paced lives, we could go about our business as usual, travel without restrictions across open borders, and gather at public events. We lived in a globalised world where Europe transferred much of its manufacturing...

“Europe’s power sector after the coronavirus pandemic will see a lot of changes. First of all, the squeeze on liquidity means that people will be cautious about investments. We will also probably see a big change in Europe’s energy mix. It is now becoming evident that essential operations that require fuels are less of a priority, because they incur higher marginal costs. In general, 2020...

We all have sunny days when we wake up, look up into the sky and feel as if the day could not get any clearer, or the air we breathe any cleaner. Unfortunately, this is an illusion. Earth has seen record high annual temperatures twice over the last five years, with 2016 and 2019 confirmed by NASA as the hottest years in recorded history. This can hardly be a coincidence. In fact, the last five...

A lot, in fact. Let us start with the fact that both can be controlled. While the chain reaction in a nuclear reactor was first controlled more than 75 years ago, Covid-19 has, in Slovenia at least, been controlled very effectively over the past week or two, according to the latest data. Both are also something people need to learn to live with. However, thanks to the in-depth, long-term public...
