  • Recent sp action by AsherH
    Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:06:00 GMT

    Perhaps 'action' isn't the right word, but the spread here over the past couple of weeks has remained off-putting to say the least.

    Today we have 5.45 - 5.05, it was as bad as 5.9 - 5.1 last week. Hoping as this tightens, punters will return.

    Of course there is the chance an RNS re:Canada will arrive any day, and depending on the content, its 3p or 10p+. Long term though, this is a buy and hold for me.

    Good luck holders

    Hopefully no brown envelopes required here, Sir Spinks and his team have spent years developing this friendship in Canada and i'm confident that he's got this under control.

    Current sp seems fair if you exclude future woodchip/pellet contracts and Canada, so if you have faith in the masterplan, load up!

  • Re: views by DreamBeaver
    Fri, 30 Jan 2015 21:56:00 GMT

    Senor Spinks as confident as ever.

    Lest we forget that he has invested a fair amount of his own skin & could have realised a very tasty profit just recently.

    This provincial governor may need to tread very carefully with regard to ethnic sensitivity. The local tribes-people were allowed to exploit & thoroughly profit from the Athabasca tar-sands. Could be seen as racist hypocrisy to then attempt to veto this awesome project.

    High level corruption is a global realism & likely a 'brown envelope' or 2 may accelerate a none too lengthy rubber stamp.

    And I can't believe I haven't had a vote on my buy rating at 6:54am yesterday!

    My view is forget what's happening in Canada and look at the RNS and news articles associated with the wood-chip and pelleting business taking shape in the Ukraine. I think additional sales contracts will drive the sp short term with a potential bonanza payout if/when the Canadian deal is signed.

    It's a buy from me at around 4.5p, as it was yesterday at 3.75p

  • Metis/Canada/AEG by Pennies4Pounds
    Wed, 07 Oct 2015 09:25:05 GMT

    I agree that an announcement of a commercial project will really bump up interest here but i suspect what's also holding the sp back is what's going on in Canada regarding Metis. Tomorrow: The Supreme Court of Canada will hear the historic Daniels v. Canada appeal on October 8, 2015 in Ottawa. Métis National Council (MNC) President Clément Chartier QC will be available for interviews regarding the appeal. Article here:


    From July 18th 2014: Active Energy Group Plc (AIM:AEG), the London Stock Exchange AIM-listed international supplier of industrial wood chip, timber products and forestry management services, announces that it has entered into an important new joint venture agreement to exclusively commercialise in excess of 100,000 hectares (c.250,000 acres) of mature forestry assets in Alberta, Western Canada, which are expected to yield more than 20 million m3 of commercial standing timber. July 2014 news here:


    My (selfish) take on this (as the Metis people are more important than my shares) is, the Canadian government don't want the financial burden of 400,000 more people in an already struggling economy. In the past, i'm not sure exactly how this argument was countered (apart from the obvious, 'well we were here first!'). However, what Metis do have is mountains, lakes, rivers, and trees and it's hopefully this resource, with the help of AEG, that will stand the tribes in good stead in court over the coming months. Daniels could now say we have land and a means to turn this land (trees) into jobs for Metis, whilst reducing the countries Co2 emissions. Obviously the story is far bigger than the above, but i see this as a couple of good strings to their bow. All views my own, am i talking nonsense here? would appreciate views and opinions. cheers all, Ash.
  • Coalswitch by mikkydhu
    Wed, 07 Oct 2015 08:39:21 GMT

    For Coalswitch to be recognized as an effective alternative to coal, there needs to be proof of concept. That is, it needs to be demonstrated as workable and economic in a full scale commercial operation. Obviously this is what Richard is working towards for next year. Meanwhile any information that helps to demonstrate the effectiveness and economy of Coalswitch will be helpful. Until more such information is provided or until there is an announcement of an initial commercial project with a significant power generator, the share price is unlikely to reflect the true potential of Coalswitch.
  • RE: Coal-fired power stations ‘to close by cottoner
    Wed, 07 Oct 2015 08:22:38 GMT

    end of article An energy department spokeswoman said: “While fossil fuels have a role to play in meeting our energy ­demands, evidence shows that coal as a percentage of total generation has ­fallen from 40 per cent in 2012 to 29 per cent in 2014. The government is ­focusing on stimulating investment in lower-carbon alternatives, keeping bills as low as possible and ensuring energy supplies are secure and reliable.” Hannah Fensome, a spokeswoman for Energy UK, which represents coal generators including Drax, Eggborough, EDF Energy and E.ON, said: “Phasing out coal-fired generation is part of the transition to a low-carbon power sector. However, there needs to be a long-term policy framework to ensure that the coal can be replaced by a mix of lower-carbon alternatives that also maintain the security of the system.” Britain is committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent by 2030, compared with levels reported in 1990.
  • Coal-fired power stations ‘to close by cottoner
    Wed, 07 Oct 2015 08:21:16 GMT

    Britain will shut down all its coal-fired power stations by 2023, under plans being drawn up by ministers before a United Nations climate change conference in Paris next month. The proposals to set a firm date for the country’s last coal-fired station to cease generating electricity are being discussed by officials at the Department of Energy and Climate Change. It is understood that Amber Rudd, the energy secretary, could announce the plan before the conference begins on November 30. Under the proposals, Britain’s ten coal-fired power stations, the biggest supplier of electricity for decades, would be forced to convert to alternative fuels such as woodchips, to fit carbon capture and storage equipment — or shut. Three coal stations — Longannet, in Fife, Eggborough, in North Yorkshire, and Ferrybridge, in West Yorkshire — have confirmed that they plan to shut next March after the introduction of strict new European emissions rules in January and a carbon price floor tax introduced in 2013. Coal, the most polluting fossil fuel in terms of carbon emissions, generated about 30 per cent of electricity in the UK last year, more than nuclear and all renewables, according to Energy UK, the trade association. It remains a reliable source of base load, the minimum level of demand, particularly on cold, windless winter days when demand is high but supplies of renewable electricity from wind and solar are low. A DECC Spokesperson said: “While fossil fuels have a role to play in meeting our energy demands, evidence shows that coal as a percentage of total generation has fallen from 40 per cent in 2012 to 29 per cent in 2014. “This reflects the fact that a number of coal power stations have closed in recent years and we expect this trend to continue. “Government is focusing on stimulating investment in lower carbon alternatives, keeping bills as low as possible for both hardworking families and businesses and ensuring our energy supplies are secure and reliable.” The plan to shut the last coal-fired stations is likely to add to fears that new renewables, such as wind, gas and nuclear , will not come on to the system quickly enough to replace the lost coal-fired generation capacity. “There is a very tight supply margin,” Zoe Double, power analyst at ICIS, an energy consultancy, said. National Grid has predicted that the supply margin during periods of peak demand this winter could be as slim as 1.2 per cent. Coal-fired stations in Britain are struggling to remain competitive in the face of increasingly tough emissions regulations. An energy department spokeswoman said: “While fossil fuels have a role to play in meeting our energy ­demands, evidence shows that coal as a percentage of total generation has ­fallen from 40 per cent in 2012 to 29 per cent in 2014.

    Eggborough power station - one of Britain's biggest - is just one plant, which has been talking to its AEG CoalSwitch joint venture, says AIM firm Active Energy (LON:AEG). The owners of the site in North Yorkshire have cited carbon taxes and EU emissions standards as the main recent behind their recent decision to close the plant in March next year, Active said, noting market speculation on the newly announced joint venture. As revealed last month, timber group Active is teaming up with US firm Biomass Energy Enhancements to commercialise what it describes a “revolutionary” new manufacturing process that allows biomass to be burned in unconverted coal-fired power stations. It reckons it could mean coal-fired power generators across the globe could choose to 'go green' - improving air quality and contributing to arresting climate change - without being forced to close. "Eggborough power station is just one of several power plants in Europe, North America and the Middle East with whom the AEG CoalSwitch team have been in communication regarding their new coal replacement Biomass fuel; as it could potentially enable them to reverse their closure plans, save jobs, and maintain their current electricity generating capacity while complying with clean air regulations and emissions targets," said Active. But it added that the board of AEG wished to stress that all discussions were "at a very early stage" and that no commitments have been made to individual plant owners or operators. Active has already said it wants to complete construction of the first high-volume CoalSwitch fuel manufacturing system by mid-2016. Active's chief executive Richard Spinks said: "The AEG CoalSwitch team have been overwhelmed by the international interest in our unique Biomass clean energy fuel since we first announced it in mid-September. "In the past three weeks I have personally met with coal-fired power plant owners in Eastern Europe, Canada and the United States - as well as some of the world's leading manufacturers of traditional Biomass pellets - and it is clear that our technology has the potential to revolutionise the entire power generation industry and greatly contribute to reducing CO2 and other harmful gaseous emissions that cause climate change." "However, it is still early days and we have a great deal to do. In conjunction with our key manufacturing partner, Munro & Associates, we are currently moving ahead to upscale the processing system, and intend to update the market on the progress of this exercise as we achieve key milestones."

    And this slightly older stuff is worth a read as well ...


    Target price of 15.73p The news is definitely POSITIVE for Active Energy. Now that the official investigation into the joint venture is over, the company can proceed further to agree the final deal terms with the aboriginal settlements and the investor, which seems to be moving forward fast, considering AEG’s comment that forestry operations are planned to commence as soon as January 2016. We note that the significant portion of AEG’s value should come from the JV in Canada, which we estimate could be worth as much as USD 114 mn to AEG, and thus we expect the company’s share price to adjust closer to our target of USD 0.245 (GBp 15.73) as more news on the deal comes out.
