Toshiba to install and operate PV systems on German apartment buildings

first_imgToshiba to install and operate PV systems on German apartment buildingsThe electronics giant plans to sell solar power to residents at lower prices than utilities. Toshiba will initially install 3 MW serving 750 apartments with the aim of increasing capacity to more than 100 MW by 2016. December 5, 2013 Edgar Meza Energy Storage Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Toshiba Corporation on Wednesday announced that it was entering Germany’s solar power market with a new on-site consumption model for apartment buildings.The Japanese electronics giant will launch the business in March after installing systems in apartment buildings operated by GAGFAH, Germany’s largest real-estate company, in the cities of Villingen-Schwenningen and Ostfildern, both located in the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.Although Germany introduced a feed-in tariff system for renewable energy in 2000, and while the adoption of photovoltaic power has increased, consumers have recently seen higher electricity bills every year, along with a lower feed-in price for surplus solar power.The company noted that Germany was seeking solutions to this by deregulating its energy market and separating power generation and transmission. In addition, independent power providers in the country can now participate and deliver electricity.Toshiba said it was responding with a new on-site consumption model that will operate independently of the feed-in tariff system and which is expected to reduce the burden on the regional gird and the environment.The system will be funded and owned by a group of pension funds. The German branch of U.K.-based Toshiba International Europe will install Toshiba’s PV systems in family apartments owned by GAGFAH and operate and manage them.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Shunfeng lands $323 million credit line

first_imgShunfeng lands $323 million credit lineBoosted by the acquistion of Suntech, the Chinese group is looking to expand operations in the U.S. and Asia and has slated $74 million for investment in 100 MW of projects in Japan. July 23, 2014 Edgar Meza Finance Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Chinese PV giant Shunfeng Photovoltaic International has secured a three-year revolving credit facility from China Merchants Bank of up to CNY 2 billion ($323 million). The group’s Jiangxi Shunfeng Photovoltaic Investments subsidiary acquired the credit facility, which will be available to the unit’s 16 subsidiaries for fixed asset loans, financial guarantees and credit financing. Shunfeng said it intends to use the credit facility for the development and construction of solar plant projects, adding that the credit facility would further enhance the group’s ability to develop and construct solar installations. While China Merchant Bank sees itself as China’s first share-holding commercial bank, its major shareholder remains the state-owned China Merchants Group. While the solar sector continues to boom in China, Shunfeng is now eyeing the U.S. market. Eric Luo, CEO of Shunfeng’s recently acquired Suntech, said earlier this month that the acquisition by Shunfeng had given the company “the strongest financial footing in the solar industry, with nearly zero debt,” and added that the company was looking to expand in the U.S., where it is exploring acquisition. Suntech business has also contributed to a significant improvement in Shunfeng’s financial performance in the first half of 2014. Based on its unaudited consolidated management accounts, Shunfeng said on Monday that it now expected to record a profit attributable to shareholders for the period compared to a net loss recorded by the group in the first six months of 2013. In addition to Suntech’s contribution, Shunfeng also attributed the turnaround to a “significant increased shipment volume of solar cells during the period”; the contribution of its solar power generation business; and a loss of CNY 673.1 million ($108.6 million) recognized in relation to the adjusted fair values of a convertible bond in the first half of last year. Moreover, the group also announced that its Shunfeng Holdings subsidiary had agreed to make a maximum investment of JPY7.5 billion ($74 million) in a private equity fund based in the Caymen Islands that will in turn invest primarily in power station projects with an accumulated capacity of 100 MW in Japan. Explaining the reason for the investment, Shunfeng said it was “a milestone success for the group to invest in solar power generation business in overseas market. “In the coming future, leveraging on the positive brand awareness of the brand of Shunfeng and the brand of Suntech gained over the years in the global market, the group will also eye on developing solar energy business overseas.”Popular content Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

New trains are flagged off by PM Narendra Modi but what about old trains specially passenger ???

first_imgRecently respected PM Narendra Modi flagged off 8 trains at the same time for same destination but they have forgot to restart old trains specially passenger trains which were stopped due to COVID-19. People know the real value of trains who were traveling from one place to another for their jobs, business and other purposes. Even people are loosing lots of money by travel in buses and other modes of traveling. In this critical situation lots of people have lost their jobs due to high travel expenses in buses.This time buses are earning good revenue due to increased passengers but travel in buses is not a peace of cake but people are traveling because they are helpless they do not have any other option and it dose not mean that if people are traveling by bus they are safe from corona virus although they are following all the rules and regulations to prevent themselves from covid-19, bus authorities are not taking covid-19 seriously and the crowd in buses is worth seeing, for example if bus is 50 seated there are about 80 to 90 passengers in a single bus which is quite risky and chances of spreading corona virus are more dominant. Apart from it females and children are facing many problems while traveling in buses due to over crowd and no facility of toilet. Even females are facing sexual harassment but due to their exigencies and crowd they are helpless.Travel in buses is more dangerous than travel in trains. There must be a penalty on bus authority if a single standing passenger is found in bus while traveling and more buses start to provide best services to payers. Govt. is giving nod to new trains instead of restarting old trains, Govt. should not to rush for tourism first, after all haste makes waste so they should restart all the old trains with all covid-19 measures as soon as possible.last_img read more

Photo via Flickr.By John Heinis/Hudson County ViewEduardo Cornejo, 33, an 11-year veteran of the department before being terminated for failing a drug test last month, faces up to 10 years in prison for human trafficking and public corruption charges that have been issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office of Eastern District of New York.Cornejo was under surveillance from the FBI and NYPD since the “late spring of 2015” after the NYPD had received a tip that he “was selling the sexual services of a young woman,” according to the criminal complaint.On July 9, 2015 and September 22, 2015, respectively, Cornejo was observed by authorities dropping off one to three young women at two separate hotels, one in Staten Island and one in Fort Lee, waiting for the women outside in his car, officials said.Furthermore, check-in dates and times indicated that the Fort Lee motel was a location Cornejo frequently took women between June 3, 2015 and September 22, 2015, officials said.The operation had at least seven women working with Cornejo when they began to frequent an unnamed Secaucus hotel on November 5 and November 6 of last year.Text messages obtained by authorities indicate that the escorts would charge men $100 for 15 minutes of their time, $150 for 30 minutes of their time and $50 for oral sex and their services were often advertised on backpage.com.Getting caught on wire being worn by cooperating witnesses on several different occasions last month, Cornejo was overheard saying things like “Who is going to [expletive] you today?” to the women.“As alleged, the defendant betrayed the trust of the residents of the city he swore to protect,” U.S. Attorney Capers said in a statement.“Rather than seeking to eradicate crime from the streets of the city, the defendant promoted prostitution and profited from his exploitation of women.” Facebook Twitter Angelo Bayonne 1 COMMENT Comments are closed.last_img read more

Joe Walsh To Host ‘Old-Fashioned Rock & Roll Radio Show’ On California Station

first_imgJoe Walsh has announced the launch of his own Old-Fashioned Rock & Roll Radio Show on public radio. The Eagles guitarist will host the show on local Los Angeles-based station 88.5 FM.This announcement comes after the Eagles were forced to cancel their summer tour. In the meantime, Walsh has been looking for a way to help fill the musical void caused by COVID-19.Related: The Black Keys Welcome Joe Walsh In Los Angeles [Watch]After the outbreak of COVID-19, Walsh reached out to the station’s programmers to ask how he could help as the pandemic decimated music industry revenue. As a regular contributor to the publicly-funded station, Walsh was aware of how the outbreak of COVID-19 would affect the station’s income. In an effort to help keep the station afloat, and to keep up the formatting choices that have reeled Walsh in as a regular listener, he proposed the weekly, hour-long program on 88.5 FM.“This public radio station serves the community I live in and is funded by listeners,” Walsh said in a statement. “I like that men with ties don’t decide what I listen to. My show will be a mixture of music I love, music I think people will want to hear and stories behind some of these songs that I’m pretty sure no one knows about. Hopefully, the show will generate some more listeners and support for the station, and we will have a lot of fun in the process.”According to the station’s general manager Patrick Osburn, Walsh will have “free reign” over the airwaves on 88.5 FM every Saturday at 6 pm. Walsh will also combine his love for music with his vast knowledge of music as he shares anecdotes from his time as a multi-Grammy winner and two time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.“His playlist and blend of stories and anecdotes should make for an engaging 60 minutes,” Osburn said. “Being entertainment royalty and one of the many local fixtures of the SoCal/Hollywood community, we anticipate Joe’s Rolodex of potential guests runs deep, so we feel great about giving him the keys to the car! It’s flattering to have rock legends listening and financially supporting the station.”Listeners outside the station’s FM reach can also tune into Joe Walsh’s Old-Fashioned Rock & Roll Radio Show Saturdays at 6 pm PT on the 88.5 FM website.[H/T Rolling Stone]last_img read more
