A seismic shift is occurring in the energy markets

Fascinating read in the FT about the seismic shift underway in the energy markets.

It starts with a tale about the unfortunate UK inventor Adam Robson who, having spent years perfecting a device which allows more efficient internal combustion engines, took it to market only to be told by the big car makers that R&D on petrol and diesel engine cars was shrinking. The budgets are being directed towards EVs and this meant there was no market for Adam’s product.
