British companies risk billions in new costs if EU blocks data sharing deal

British companies risk being hit with £1.6bn in new costs if Brexit negotiators fail to strike a deal over data standards, researchers have warned.

A report from the New Economics Foundation and UCL European Institute released today said that British companies were facing steep new legal fees if the EU decided that post-Brexit UK data standards were not adequate and halted data flows between the two regions. 

Organisations including banks, technology companies and insurance firms currently transfer data, such as personal information or financial details, between the EU and UK so that they can process it. 

After the Brexit transition period comes to an end, the UK will no longer be included under the EU data protection regime, and will require a separate “data adequacy agreement” to allow information to continue to pass to and from the bloc.

If such a deal is not agreed, companies could be forced to

U.S. should look at how other high-income countries regulate health care costs, experts urge — ScienceDaily

Structuring negotiations between insurers and providers, standardizing fee-for-service payments and negotiating prices can lower the United States’ health care spending by slowing the rate at which healthcare prices increase, according to a Rutgers study.

The study, published in the journal Health Affairs, examined how other high-income countries that use a fee-for-service model regulate health care costs.

Although the United States has the highest health care prices in the world, the specific mechanisms commonly used by other countries to set and update prices are often overlooked. In most countries with universal health insurance, physicians are paid on a fee-for-service basis, yet health care prices there are lower than in the U.S. To lower health care spending, American policymakers have focused on eliminating fee-for-service reimbursement, which provides an incentive for performing additional services rather than setting up price negotiations to address the main factor that drives health care spending.

GM: New batteries cut electric car costs, increase range

General Motors says a pending breakthrough in battery chemistry will cut the price of its electric vehicles so they equal those powered by gasoline within five years

DETROIT — General Motors says a pending breakthrough in battery chemistry will cut the price of its electric vehicles so they equal those powered by gasoline within five years. The technology also will increase the range per charge to as much as 450 miles.

The company’s product development chief promised a small electric SUV that will cost less than $30,000 and pledged to roll out 30 battery-powered models worldwide by 2025. Nearly all current electric vehicles cost more than $30,000.

The announcement Thursday shows how fast electric vehicle technology is evolving and how it may become the primary fuel for

Service NSW expecting cyber attack to set it back AU$7m in legal and investigation costs

Service NSW, the New South Wales government’s one-stop shop for service delivery, in April 2020 experienced a cyber attack that compromised the information of 186,000 customers.

Following a four-month investigation that began in April, Service NSW said it identified that 738GB of data, which comprised of 3.8 million documents, was stolen from 47 staff email accounts.

Service NSW assured, however, there was no evidence that individual MyService NSW account data or Service NSW databases were compromised during the attack.

“This rigorous first step surfaced about 500,000 documents which referenced personal information,” Service NSW CEO Damon Rees said in September. “The data is made up of documents such as handwritten notes and forms, scans, and records of transaction applications.”

In delivering its 2020-21 Budget on Tuesday, the government revealed the legal and investigative cost it is expected to incur from the attack.

“In April 2020, Service NSW alerted police and authorities

New method could potentially reduce dioxide emission into the atmosphere and slash costs of chemical manufacturing — ScienceDaily

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and their colleagues have demonstrated a room-temperature method that could significantly reduce carbon dioxide levels in fossil-fuel power plant exhaust, one of the main sources of carbon emissions in the atmosphere.

Although the researchers demonstrated this method in a small-scale, highly controlled environment with dimensions of just nanometers (billionths of a meter), they have already come up with concepts for scaling up the method and making it practical for real-world applications.

In addition to offering a potential new way of mitigating the effects of climate change, the chemical process employed by the scientists also could reduce costs and energy requirements for producing liquid hydrocarbons and other chemicals used by industry. That’s because the method’s byproducts include the building blocks for synthesizing methane, ethanol and other carbon-based compounds used in industrial processing.

The team tapped a novel energy source from the

Amazon forecasts jump in holiday sales – and pandemic costs

(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc AMZN.O on Thursday reported record profit for the second consecutive quarter and forecast a jump in holiday sales, as consumers continued to shop more online during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Shares initially rose 2% in after-hours trading and then turned lower by 1% as the company forecast $4 billion in COVID-19 related costs for the current period and operating income below Wall Street’s expectations.

Since the start of the virus outbreak in the United States eight months ago, consumers have turned increasingly to Amazon for delivery of groceries, home goods and medical supplies. Brick-and-mortar shops closed their doors; Amazon by contrast moved to recruit over 400,000 more workers and earned $6.3 billion in the just-ended third quarter, the most in its 26-year history.

SpaceX’s Starlink beta costs $500 for equipment plus $99 subscription

  • SpaceX’s public beta test for Starlink, its satellite internet project, will cost $600 upfront, it said in an email Monday that was then posted online by Reddit’s Starlink community.
  • The “Better Than Nothing Beta” costs $99 for an ongoing monthly subscription, plus $499 for a kit containing a tripod, WiFi router, and terminal to connect to the Starlink satellites.
  • Speeds will vary from 50 Mbps to 150 Mbps, SpaceX said.
  • Some users are already spending more on fancier gear: One Reddit user said they had splashed an extra $100 on a sturdier mount. 
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

SpaceX is asking people to spend $600 upfront for the public beta of Starlink, its satellite internet service — and some users have already said they’ll spend more for a better setup.

US grid-battery costs dropped 70% over 3 years

US grid-battery costs dropped 70% over 3 years

In recent years, the cost of solar and wind energy has declined precipitously, which has accelerated the growth of these renewable energy technologies. Increasingly, utilities are now planning for a future grid dominated by solar and wind. That will require changes in grid management and transmission upgrades as well as the addition of storage to smooth out the supply from variable generators.

Grid storage is still pretty early days, but we’re already seeing huge cost reductions as the industry matures. The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) highlighted this recently, showing that grid-scale battery-project costs in the United States dropped 70 percent in just a few years.

Between 2015 and 2018, average project costs decreased from $2,152 per kilowatt-hour of storage to $625. Costs will need to drop much more for grid batteries to scale, but that’s a huge improvement in a short period of time.

Average costs (per kilowatt-hour capacity) dropped about 70 percent from 2015 to 2018.
