AI is changing the energy system, putting premium on flexibility

This week, Energy Evolution reports from CERAWeek, S&P Global's flagship energy conference.

Our first conversation from the 'Super Bowl of energy' is with Arshad Mansoor, president of the Electric Power Research Institute.

With AI changing the energy landscape at lightning speed, grid flexibility is increasingly indispensable, Mansoor tells podcast co-host Taylor Kuykendall.

Given that, innovation and deployment of small modular reactors and hydrogen cannot come fast enough, Mansoor says.

Why sulfur markets face an upside risk from the energy transition

Sulfur is a crucial input for the fertilizer market. But, this byproduct of the oil and gas industry is also increasingly in-demand for processing key metals needed for the energy transition, such as copper and nickel. In this episode of the Platts Future Energy podcast, sulfur and sulfuric acid market reporter Matt Hoisch is joined by sulfur and sulfuric acid Analyst, Yuya Pan, and senior copper analyst, Ruilin Wang, for a deep dive into how a transition to greener energy sources is expected to impact sulfur supply and demand.
