Thrice-weekly news service
The length and breadth of the newsletter emails will depend entirely on the news agenda. Energy Flux won’t waste your time with low-value filler, nor will it short change you when big news breaks.
Expect pithy sentences that succinctly capture the essence of each story. The bar for coverage is set pretty high and every announcement gets exactly what it deserves.
These thrice-weekly news emails:
cover a handful of key industry stories
give a concise rundown of the salient facts
explain why, in the grand scheme of things, they matter — stories that either move the market, or speak to underlying trends
track major developments and under-reported events of significance
link to ‘hot takes’ and cutting edge energy-related thought leadership published in other outlets
Once a month, Energy Flux serves up thought-provoking weekend reading that digs deeper into the most prescient, bellwether event of the last few weeks.
If it’s been a slow energy news cycle, Energy Flux goes the extra mile to bring you an original off-diary ‘think piece’ analysing undercurrents that get little attention elsewhere.
The monthly deep dive:
offers a more granular critique of what’s moving the energy transition needle
establishes fresh narratives that seek to challenge accepted wisdoms
analyses exogenous socio-economic factors that influence, and are influenced by, the evolution of the energy industry
is bursting with forward-thinking insight and critical analysis
embraces lateral thinking (see for yourself in the archive):
A hub for energy aficionados
Energy Flux aspires to become a buzzing community of avid energy readers; a space for engineers and visionaries, investors and campaigners, asset managers and academics to discuss the latest energy transition milestones.
Premium members can join the debate by commenting on articles and participating in discussion threads.
(Non-paying subscribers will receive only occasional public emails, with no access to the members’ archive or community features.)
Stay up-to-date, without the hassle
There is more going on across the gamut of energy markets and technologies than any one newsletter can cover alone, and there are already plenty of news outlets dedicated to covering each sub-sector in detail.
Energy Flux takes a step back from the news blizzard to reflect on a few hand-picked stories, filtering out the noise to serve up a polished and eclectic mix of news and views from the edge of the decarbonisation and digitalisation megatrends.
I know which stories move the market. I scan hundreds of press releases, announcements and reports every week so you don’t have to. Readers receive only what matters, and in a time-saving digest format.
The standard cost of premium membership is:
£30 per month, or

My commitment to members
This newsletter represents the culmination of my career to date as an energy reporter and analyst, and I’m staking my professional reputation on its success. This is my personal pledge to deliver an editorial offering par excellence, come what may. (It also means I am not in a position to offer refunds.)
Energy Flux will not publish during:
UK national holidays
part of the UK summer (precise dates TBC)
I will strive to limit these non-publishing periods to no more than ten weeks per calendar year (in aggregate), and will give every reader a heads-up before any downtime.
A small caveat
As a family man juggling a sole editorial venture around the school run, life might disrupt things a bit from time to time. If it does, I’ll give premium members as much forewarning as possible about unplanned changes to the publishing schedule. I will also seek to recoup any lost issues (beyond the ten-week limit) later in the year as necessary.
