LONDON (Reuters) -Global education group Pearson raised its forecast for full-year adjusted operating profit on Wednesday in a boost to management efforts to restructure the business and counter fluctuating fortunes at its U.S. Higher Education division. The British company has endured a turbulent pandemic, lifted at times by demand for online learning courses and stymied in October when a surge of the Omicron variant and a tight U.S. labour market deterred students from enrolling at community colleges. Under the leadership of former Disney executive Andy Bird it has sought to broaden its approach beyond traditional education outlets, selling directly to consumers via its Pearson+ app and to businesses looking to train workers.
China may triple electricity generation to supply 60% of the country's total energy under Beijing's carbon-neutral goal by 2060, up from the current 23%, Royal Dutch Shell said on Monday.

BERLIN (Reuters) -Germany's new Finance Minister Christian Lindner has called on fellow cabinet members to counter-finance any higher spending with budget cuts elsewhere in their departments, two people familiar with the government's 2022 draft budget said on Tuesday. The guidelines mark a shift in Berlin's fiscal policy after two years of record net new borrowing and unprecedented state spending to cushion the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on citizens and companies in Europe's largest economy. Lindner is party leader of the fiscally cautious Free Democrats (FDP), the smallest junior partner in Social Democrat Chancellor Olaf Scholz's three-party ruling coalition that also includes the environmentalist, pro-spending Greens.
BP, Shell and utility Iberdrola were among the winners of seabed rights to develop Scottish offshore wind projects, in an auction which raised nearly 700 million pounds ($958 million) for public spending. Competition for offshore wind sites has intensified as governments and investors have woken up to the urgency of cutting carbon emissions, with oil majors making high bids. Crown Estate Scotland, which manages the Scottish seabed, said on Monday that proceeds from the first such leasing deal in around a decade will go to the devolved Scottish government.

(Reuters) -European shares closed at a one-week low on Tuesday, with tech stocks losing the most as a rise in short-term U.S. Treasury yields reflected increased expectations for an interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve as soon as March. Tech stocks declined 2.2%, the most among their peers, as they resumed a losing spree that began at the start of the year. Two-year Treasury yields , which track short-term rate expectations in the United States, crossed 1% for the first time since February 2020.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) -More than 2 billion euros of European Union funding to help businesses save energy contributed little to climate change targets and in some cases funded investments that would have happened anyway, auditors said on Monday. The EU regards curbing energy use as essential to meeting goals to cut greenhouse gas emissions, and record high gas and power prices in recent months have increased the focus on measures to save energy. But so far, EU funding to support energy savings for businesses has not been effective, the European Court of Auditors said in a report.

The lithium-borates project near Loznica in the western Jadar valley is slated to position the Anglo-Australian miner as Europe's largest lithium supplier for at least next 15 years amid a boom in electric vehicle sales. The mine has faced opposition from environmental activists and local communities over concerns of environmental damage, forcing the local municipality last year to scrap a plan to allocate land for the facility. The Balkan nation will decide whether Rio can proceed with developing the mine after a general election in April, its prime minister told Reuters earlier this month.
