samadhi - the way they do this is to sell more shares than they have, they can take the next few weeks and months to get those shares if they like, or especially if they think the price is not going to hold.
numpty - I'm afraid I think that most discussion of graphene is absolute nonsense so I stay very much away from the area, especially so as you leave the scientific arena and enter the business one.
Graphene is a molecule a single atom thick, as such it is possible to get very unscalable results . Many mentions of graphene are simply people who say graphene for marketing purposes which in fact they mean graphite, or even just carbon.
I'm sorry that this may not be the answer that you are looking for.
kev - there is of course the possibility that the date of the 31st Oct was mentioned so that any games are set with that as an end assumption. It is of course quite possible that this is not what actually ends up happening.
lol Ophidian - it reminds me of the time that the technical assistant of one of my customers inadvertently sent an email to us which how can I put it, used some rather indiscreet quebecois phraseology. He had obviously not considered that there was such a system as is now made available to all via google translate, and bitterly regretted it the next day when he was forced to send me a grovelling apology explaining that he follows the same system you have described but his computer had disobeyed him and sent it anyway. I now have that response framed.
However as demand disconnected, the grid’s frequency bounced the other way, as Anesco asset managing director Mike Ryan explained, meaning battery storage projects were then required to charge to balance the grid once again.
“There has never been a clearer example of the vital role of storage for the grid. As more and more renewable generators come online and we drive towards ‘net zero’, such assets need to be effectively utilised and proper frameworks put in place to work with operators.”
Jonny Gowdy, director at industry trade body Regen, said that Friday’s power cut demonstrated the importance of highly responsive assets such as battery storage to the system, but pointed out how contracts currently in place were markedly insufficient to mitigate against a rare double shutdown.
“The UK wants to be a world leading in smart energy and battery storage, but very few planned projects are making progress, largely due to uncertainty over future revenue streams."
gkb - they are not turning up because they realise they have pushed this down as far as it will go and they'd simply be handing over cheap shares to the Market Makers. The MMs are therefore forced to dip into their tame sellers pot to pull out 100K here and 100K there to feed the demand that is coming in from buyers. They're probably not even showing some of the buys to try and string out their position of power as long as possible (hoping that some PIs are forced to sell to them instead.)
