European solar installations expected to total 16.7GW in 2019, with more to come

first_imgEuropean solar installations expected to total 16.7GW in 2019, with more to come FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Installations of solar power plants in the EU grew at the highest rate since 2010 this year, with a revived Spanish market and higher renewables targets across the EU set to drive record activity over the coming years.Solar photovoltaic, or PV, capacity grew by 16.7 GW in 2019, according to preliminary data. Additions were 104% higher than in 2018, making this the strongest year for year-over-year growth in almost a decade.“We have entered a new era of solar growth,” said Walburga Hemetsberger, CEO of SolarPower Europe, the industry association that collected the data. “Solar in the European Union is thriving.”The group said it expects solar PV installations to rise by more than 90 GW over the next five years under its medium forecast scenario, with developers increasing annual additions at a steady clip.Although most EU countries installed more solar capacity than in the year before, Spain has emerged as the largest single market in the EU in 2019, adding an estimated 4.7 GW of new power plants. A promising policy framework has helped to revive the industry there after retroactive subsidy cuts had caused a developer exodus in the years after the financial crisis.Overall, SolarPower Europe said cost declines for solar technology are the main driver for higher activity. The group said the levelized cost of energy for a solar project in Finland is now around €50/MWh, while Spanish developers can produce for around €30/MWh.

Australia heading for recession after economy contracts

first_img“The economic impact will be severe. Far more severe than what we have seen today,” Frydenberg said.Authorities ordered numerous businesses shut and closed the country’s international borders to stem the spread of COVID-19, costing the economy billions of dollars but achieving success in containing the virus.Frydenberg said the negative March quarter “compared very well” to results in countries including China, France and Britain, showing the Australian economy’s “remarkable resilience”.”We were on the edge of the cliff. What we were facing was an economist’s version of Armageddon,” he said. Australia is heading for its first recession in nearly three decades after the economy shrunk in the January-March quarter, with a “far more severe” reading expected in the next three months as the effects of the virus shutdown bite.The 0.3 percent contraction was the first quarterly drop since 2009 during the global financial crisis and came as the lockdown exacerbated the impact of a prolonged drought and massive bushfires.And while it was smaller than the forecast 0.4 percent drop, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said Australia was now on track to enter its first recession since 1991 “on the basis of the advice that I have from the Treasury Department about where the June quarter is expected to be”. “We have avoided the economic fate, and the health fate, of other nations because of the measures that we have taken as a nation.”The government has effectively bankrolled swathes of the economy — subsidizing wages and urging rent deferrals in order to keep businesses on life support until normal life returns.Millions of Australians have lost their jobs or seen hours slashed, but officials hope a three-stage approach to lifting virus restrictions will help restore the economy.National Australia Bank’s Kaixin Owyong said the economy would likely shrink 8.4 percent in the next three months.But she added that the lifting of restrictions earlier than expected “points to economic recovery beginning in the third quarter, with high-frequency indicators… showing spending is picking up as restrictions are eased”.She did, however, warn that a full rebound was some time off as borders were still closed, which will continue to hit trade.”Full recovery will also require confidence in health and economic outcomes to be restored, where households may remain cautious for some time given record job losses and with the labor market historically lagging recovery in activity,” she added. Australia has recorded about 7,200 cases and 102 deaths from coronavirus, with many regions now regularly reporting zero new daily cases.center_img Topics :last_img read more

DMC OKs TTR’s Marine Consent to Recover and Export Iron Sands in STB

first_imgThe Decision Making Committee (DMC), appointed by the Board of the Environmental Protection Authority to decide a marine consent application by Trans-Tasman Resources Ltd (TTR), has granted consent, subject to conditions, for the company to mine iron sands off the South Taranaki Bight.The Environmental Protection Authority’s (EPA) DMC decision is the first approval for a mining proposal in New Zealand’s extensive offshore Exclusive Economic Zone under the EEZ Act 2012.“However, after hearing and considering all the evidence, submissions, reports and information, members of the Decision-making Committee did not agree in the final deliberations,” EPA said in its release.Committee Chairman Alick Shaw and Dr Kevin Thompson voted to grant consent. Deputy Chair, Sharon McGarry and Gerry Te Kapa Coates, voted to refuse consent, citing concerns over localized adverse environmental effects and tangata whenua existing interests.In accordance with the procedures adopted before the hearing began, the decision to grant consent, subject to conditions, was determined on the casting vote of Mr Shaw, as Chair of the DMC.The committee’s rationale for granting consent is set out in the over 300-page decision document and includes conditions and operating constraints to limit the scale, intensity and duration of the discharge effects of residual material to the seabed, known as sediment plume, as well as impacts on marine mammals.With the imposition of such conditions, TTR’s marine consent application to mine iron sands in the South Taranaki Bight is granted and will remain in place for 35 years.last_img read more

Aker Solutions and FSubsea to create new firm for boosting oil recovery

first_imgThe spread of subsea boosting technology has been hampered by cost and complexity. Conventional systems require a large amount of topside equipment on a platform or FPSO, including electric variable speed drives and supply systems for barrier fluid hydraulic oils. They also typically require several kilometers of hydraulic umbilicals between the pumps and the platform. This increases cost in the form of engineering and hardware spend.Aker Solutions stated that the pump-module solution from FASTSubsea leverages FSubsea’s Hydromag technology, which is a unique combination of the world’s most powerful Permanent Magnetic coupling with an embedded hydrodynamic variable speed function, and Aker Solutions’ MultiBooster semi-axial impeller design, which has proven best-in-class pressure generation capabilities.This system has built-in variable speed function and is barrier-fluid-less, which reduces capex cost with up to 50 percent. It unlocks opportunities with platforms that have no additional topside space but still can reap the economic benefits of increased recovery with subsea boosting system, Aker Solutions explained.Aker Solutions and FSubsea will each hold a 50 percent of the outstanding shares in FASTSubsea and the board of directors will consist of an equal number of Aker Solutions and FSubsea representatives.Alexander Fuglesang acts as Managing Director of FASTSubsea and Bastiaen van der Rest as Technology and Operations Manager.The company’s “topside-less” multiphase pump will be marketed towards subsea integrators and operators directly, as well as through Aker Solutions. FSubsea will continue to market Omnirise product range directly to the marketplace and Aker Solutions will continue to market LiquidBooster and MultiBooster product ranges directly to the marketplace.Spotted a typo?

Norway’s Aker Solutions and its compatriot FSubsea have agreed to create FASTSubsea to help operators increase oil recovery in “a faster, simpler and more environmentally friendly way.” Aker Solutions said on Wednesday that multiphase subsea pumping technology has the potential to increase oil recovery rates by more than 20 percent, but cost, space limitations and sometimes complex solutions mean multiphase pumps are installed in fewer than 30 of the world’s 1,500+ offshore fields.With FASTSubsea, this is about to change, according to the two companies.Aker Solutions said  that the new company combines its multiphase hydraulic technology with FSubsea’s Hydromag technology to create the world’s first “topside-less” multiphase boosting system.The pump-module solution being developed by FASTSubsea can cut capex by half and enable subsea boosting at fields where there is no available topside space. Getting more out of existing wells reduces CO2-emissions per barrel.“Creating FASTSubsea enables us to increase our speed to the market, reduce risk and reduce investment in multiphase test facilities,” said Alexander Fuglesang, CEO of FSubsea, who will take on the role of Managing Director of FASTSubsea.“Combining Aker Solutions’ subsea systems expertise and multiphase test facility with FSubsea’s Hydromag technology and lean mindset will benefit both companies, said John Macleod, Aker Solutions’ Chief Technology Officer.“FASTSubsea has the potential to become a valuable addition to our portfolio of boosting recovery solutions.”The agreement is subject to approval from the Norwegian competition authorities.

EPL: Palace, Foxes in cagey duel

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Vardy primed for another prolific season after brace at West Brom Klopp wins Premier League Manager of the Season award Ndidi linked with Man U move Crystal Palace vs. Leicester City Venue: Selhurst Park Kick off: 3PMTwo of the Premier League’s surprise packages so far this season face off at Selhurst Park this afternoon when ninth-placed Crystal Palace host fourth-placed Leicester City. Palace have lost just one of their last five league games going into this match, while Leicester have won four of their last five, including a record-equalling 9-0 humiliation of Southampton last weekend. Brendan Rodgers has insisted that Leicester have moved on from last Friday’s bonanza at St Mary’s, but such a result will no doubt make opposition all the more wary of a team which has quite rightly earned glowing praise so far this season. Many tipped the Foxes to push for a top-six spot this term, but few had them sitting third after 10 games and only five points behind champions Manchester City, who are also the only team to have outscored them in 2019-20. Victory today would give Leicester their best-ever start in the top flight, with their current tally of 20 points from 10 outings. Such is the standard being set at the moment that Leicester are still 11 points off Liverpool’s pace at the top of the table, but they look perfectly capable of challenging for a top-four spot this season, with three points already separating them from fifth-placed Arsenal. Manchester United and Liverpool are the only teams to have beaten Leicester in 13 matches across all competitions this season, and nine of their last 11 have ended in victory – including a 3-1 triumph away to Burton Albion in the EFL Cup on Tuesday. That made it 12 goals in their past two outings with two vastly different starting lineups but, as impressive as their attack has been, their defence has also made light of losing Harry Maguire in the summer and boast the joint-fewest goals conceded in the league so far this term. Such a record may concern a Palace side that has only averaged one goal per game in the league this season, but Roy Hodgson will nonetheless be just as happy as his fellow former Liverpool boss Rodgers with how the opening 10 weeks of the campaign have gone. The Eagles go into the weekend sitting sixth in the table, above Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur and only one point behind Arsenal, against whom they recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 last weekend. Granit Xhaka’s act of petulance under provocation stole the headlines in that match, but you can be sure that Hodgson fully appreciated the fightback from his side having been beaten at home by Man City a week previously. Palace’s record of one defeat in five is made all the more impressive by the fact that this will be their fourth successive game against a team starting the day in the top five – a difficult run which is almost certain to stretch to seven with Chelsea and Liverpool next up after Leicester. One cause for optimism lies in their record against the Foxes having won each of their last four editions of this fixture, scoring 13 times and conceding just once in the process, and the most recent of those wins prompted Leicester to sack Claude Puel in February. Only once before in their history – against Wimbledon from 1989 to 1991 – have Palace won five successive top-flight games against a particular opponent, but they will be expecting a completely different test against Rodgers’s Leicester this time around. Crystal Palace possible XI: Guaita, Ward, Tomkins, Cahill, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur, Zaha, Ayew. Leicester possible XI: Schmeichel, Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell, Ndidi, Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy.Tags: Brendan RodgersCrystal Palace FClast_img read more
