Solstice Greetings

As we are approaching the moment the Earth is the furthest away from the Sun, after which it will be getting closer again, it is a time of reflection and looking backwards so as to be able to go forward from a new platform.

It has been a year of great changes with much implication for the future, in the world, as well as in this company.

Starting with a speech for an UNCTAD conference, it continued with the changing of the business-plan, the set up of Oil-Around, providing a wealth of information around the energy-related developments, the appearance of the Energy Evaluation Monthly, the freeing of the new site, a small and highly intensive 'New Energy Era'-forum, followed by the signing of the contracts for the publication, by Springer Verlag, of the 'Campbell's Atlas of Oil & Gas Depletion', due in Q2 next year.

These are the beginnings of the realisation of our aim and intention to become an organisation offering energy-related information, analyses and advisory services that are NOT driven by politics, stock-markets or maximizing profit, but by the wish to give unbiased information, clear analysis and honest reflection and advice.

Together with different parties we are on our way to become able to do the research ourselves, and increasingly be less dependent on the 'established sources', opening the way for more realistic projections and information and analysis we feel we can trust and are confident to pass on.

So whilst all is not perfect, and much still needs to be done, we also have decided that making certain services only available upon paid subscription, was not the right way to go.
We wish to have a useful service that is available to as many people as possible and therefore decided to go for all free services, trusting that donations would help to sustain us.

So whilst fully stretched, we are also in great hope and trust for the future, to open the way for greater honesty and transparency, especially in matters as important as our future energy.

Combining the energy-data with data and information on economy, climate, geostrategy and other subjects as water, food and health, will enable to come to an integrated and throughout view of current and future developments.

We think the future is exciting and will allow multiple opportunities to respond to its needs.

We wish all readers a fine and peaceful festive transition-period, and all health and strength for 2012.

Stay cool.
