Tokyo Electric upgrading grid with 100-km-long transmission line

first_imgTokyo Electric upgrading grid with 100-km-long transmission lineTokyo Electric Power Co. is building a 100-kilometer-long electricity transmission line in central Japan as part of the country’s efforts to upgrade its grid infrastructure in view of surging renewable power. October 7, 2014 Ilias Tsagas Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Modules & Upstream Manufacturing Utility Scale PV Asia Japan Japanese flagImage: Flickr/ かがみ~Share pv magazine has learned that Tokyo Electric Power Co., Ltd (Tepco), has begun construction of a new, 100-kilometer-long transmission line connecting the Nagano and Gifu prefectures in central Japan. Tatsuhiro Yamagishi, communications officer at Tepco, confirmed the news, adding that Tepco aims to complete the project by 2020. The new 200 kV electricity line “will be able to transfer from an original 600,000 kW to 1.5 million kW, a 900,000 kW increase,” Yamagishi said. Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) said that prior to construction, the project had won the approval of all government-related institutions, including approvals from Nagano and Gifu prefectures. Meanwhile, METI added that another very shorter electricity line, about 1 kilometer, will also soon be constructed by Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc. This is a 500 kV line, also adding to the existing line infrastructure about 900 MW of extra power transfer. The two projects are in line with a decision by the Japanese cabinet to update the country’s grid infrastructure and add flexibility to the power system. The Tepco and Chubu projects have received priority status. Japan’s PV deployment surge Japan is poised to top 8 GW solar installations this year, adding about 5.1 GW of PV in the second half of the year alone, according to a recent analysis by GlobalData. The country’s PV deployment success stems mostly from residential as well as commercial and institutional projects of up to 1 MW each. However, the number of large-scale solar PV projects are also starting to increase significantly, GlobalData said. A crucial change affecting large-scale PV projects appears to be in sight though. According to Reuters, which cites reports by Japan’s Yomiuri newspaper, METI is planning to change the timing for the calculation of the feed-in tariff (FIT) for PV installations larger than 1 MW. Under the current support scheme, solar PV projects lock in a FIT at the time of approval by the government’s institutions. Under the new system METI is preparing, large-scale projects will only lock in a FIT when connecting to the grid, Reuters said. The reason for this change is the huge delay often taking place between a project’s period of approval and deployment. Japan’s government tends to reduce FITs every business year, leading to many photovoltaic projects receiving a higher FIT at their time of connection than the one available for similar projects applying for approval at this time. By introducing a change in the timing of FIT determination for large-scale projects, METI may limit the amount paid for FITs. Long delays between licensing and construction of PV projects had also pushed METI earlier this year to annul many FIT-granted projects that had previously been found to have purposefully held back development in the hope that component costs would fall, according to GlobalData. METI has also introduced a clause stipulating that any project approved in 2014 must have a finalized site and equipment contract within 180 days.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.

Vermont treasurer and VPIC urge ExxonMobil to adopt greenhouse gas emission reduction goals

first_imgThe state of Vermont is attempting to use the clout of its pension investments to get one of the world’s largest corporations to change its business practices. Vermont and a coalition of 47 global investors are challenging the ExxonMobil Corporation to adopt quantitative goals for reducing total greenhouse gas emissions from its products and operations. Upon the request of State Treasurer Beth Pearce, the Vermont Pension Investment Committee recently approved the co-filing of a shareholder resolution asking ExxonMobil to report to shareholders by the end of November on its plans to achieve these goals.“As a shareholder, VPIC can request that ExxonMobil examine its practices,” explained Pearce. “We believe that clear greenhouse gas emission reduction goals will make Exxon more competitive and in turn protect shareholder value and address climate risk. By requesting this as part of an investor coalition, Vermont has a significant seat at the table to advocate for change.”The VPIC oversees the management of approximately $4 billion in pension assets for the Vermont Retirement System and the Burlington Employees’ Retirement System. The State Treasurer is a member of the committee and acts as its Vice Chair. In passing the resolution at their December meeting, VPIC joined a coalition coordinated by the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) and Ceres. ICCR is a coalition of more than 300 faith-and values-based institutional investors representing more than $100 billion in collective assets. ICCR advocates for just and sustainable corporate practices and seeks to advance the transition to a green energy future. Ceres is a non-profit organization focused on mobilizing business and investor leadership on climate change, water scarcity and other sustainability challenges. The State Treasurer’s Office was a founding member of the Ceres’ Investor Network on Climate Risk, organized in 2003.“VPIC continues to strengthen its proxy voting policies to influence companies we invest in to achieve certain environmental, social or governance goals,” said VPIC Chair Stephen Rauh. “As an institutional investor, VPIC maintains its standing and rights as a shareholder and the ability to influence corporate and governmental entities through constructive engagement. VPIC believes reports and enhanced disclosure requests offer a formal structure for decision making that helps management teams address risks and global trends that can have serious consequences for business and society.”The VPIC approved co-filed resolution describes ExxonMobil’s management strategy as “wholly inadequate” in response to the severity of the climate crisis. The resolution urges the company to create a disciplined business strategy with goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.“As the company’s emissions increase even as production declines, this resolution – with the largest number of co-filers of any resolution for the eighth year in a row – calls for a disciplined business strategy that would position the company to make needed reductions in emissions,” said Sister Patricia A. Daly, OP, who represents the lead filer of the resolution, the Sisters of St. Dominic of Caldwell, New Jersey. She also serves as the Executive Director of the Tri-State Coalition for Responsible Investment.The challenge to ExxonMobil by VPIC follows a similar action in June in which the State Treasurer joined investors in a letter to Krispy Kreme to encourage the company to adopt a more sustainable palm oil policy in their operations. Vermont joined other investors in asking the company to verify that their palm oil had been produced by third parties in a sustainable manner that avoids deforestation. Krispy Kreme has since adopted a zero deforestation policy.“Using our influence as an investor, we can request a level of accountability from the companies we invest in,” said Pearce. “For example, 15 of the 24 managers that VPIC contracts with are signatories to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment. As signatories, these managers are expected to incorporate environmental, social and governance issues into their decision-making processes. Vermont and other investors hold these managers accountable by requiring appropriate disclosure and reporting on activities and progress on these issues.”               VPIC also is considering a similar shareholder filing resolution against BP, a multinational oil and gas company headquartered in London, England.Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions 2015:Resolution of the Vermont Pension Investment CommitteeWHEREAS:The 2014 Synthesis Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that continued greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and subsequent global warming will have “severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems.” The Risky Business report forecasts significant economic costs to agriculture, labor productivity, and property.To mitigate the worst impacts of climate change and limit warming to below 2˚C, as agreed in the Copenhagen Accord, the IPCC estimates that a fifty percent reduction in GHG emissions globally is needed by 2050, relative to 1990 levels.Climate regulations are already here. In the United States, President Obama recently committed to reduce emissions 26-28% by 2025; and EPA Fuel Efficiency Standards require autos to average 54.5 MPG by 2025, calling for a new generation of low-carbon fuels. EU countries pledged to reduce emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030. China, seen as the primary driver of future global demand for oil, made a commitment to peak its carbon emissions by 2030. These initial commitments foreshadow the global climate treaty to be negotiated in Paris in December 2015.A business plan with clear GHG reduction goals will strengthen ExxonMobil’s competitive position, protect shareholder value, and effectively manage climate risk. Sixty percent of Fortune 100 companies have set GHG reduction goals or renewable energy targets. CDP, which represents 767 institutional investors holding $92 trillion in assets, found that of the 386 companies in the S&P 500 that report to CDP, 79% earn a higher return on their carbon reduction investments than on their overall corporate capital investments.We believe the failure of ExxonMobil’s management to set public goals has impacted the company’s ability to reduce overall emissions: between 2011 and 2013, ExxonMobil’s emissions increased 3.7%, even as production fell 6.1%. ExxonMobil’s long-standing strategy of setting an internal price of carbon has not led to emissions reductions. As ExxonMobil itself notes, proper management of environmental performance requires that “key strategies and objectives” be established and that “results are regularly stewarded against prior commitments.”Nearly 90% of ExxonMobil’s GHG emissions are associated with the combustion of its products. A strategy to manage climate risk that does not limit GHG emissions from its products is incomplete. The evolution of ExxonMobil’s management strategy in response to the severity of the climate crisis has been wholly inadequate. We urge the company to create a disciplined business strategy with goals to reduce GHG emissions.RESOLVED: Shareholders request that the Board of Directors adopt quantitative goals for reducing total greenhouse gas emissions from the Company’s products and operations; and that the Company report to shareholders by November 30, 2015, on its plans to achieve these goals. Such a report will omit proprietary information and be prepared at reasonable cost.last_img read more

Vickers Viscount, Pesawat Turboprop Pertama di Dunia,Mengenal Bell 206 JetRanger, Pesawat ‘Penjaga’ Museum Polri yang Pernah Keliling…

first_imgPrototipe Viscount 700 G-AMAV dengan livery British West Indian Airways (BWIA). Foto: baesystems.com Inggris memainkan peranan penting dalam percaturan industri penerbangan global di tahun 40-60an. Pesawat jet komersial pertama dunia, de Havilland Comet, mungkin jadi salah satu bukti. Tak hanya itu, Inggris juga membuka jalan dimulainya era penerbangan turboprop -sebagai pengganti mesin piston yang berisik dan banyak getaran- melalui pengembangan pesawat turboprop pertama di dunia, Vickers Viscount.Baca juga: De Havilland Comet, Inilah Pesawat Jet Komersial Pertama di DuniaDikutip dari baesystems.com, penerbangan perdana Vickers Viscount dimulai pada Juli 1948 melalui prototipe tipe 630. Saat itu, pesawat dengan nomor registrasi G-AHRF ini hanya diperbolehkan oleh Komite Brabazon -komite yang dibentuk oleh pemerintah Inggris pada tahun 1942 untuk menganalisis kebutuhan masa depan pasar pesawat sipil Inggris setelah Perang Dunia II- sebanyak 24 kursi. Namun, setelah prototipe Vickers Viscount tipe 630 sukses terbang, kapasitasnya ditingkatkan menjadi 32 penumpang dengan panjang pesawat hingga 22 meter lebih. Keberhasilan prototipe Vickers Viscount tipe 630 bersama mesin turboprop Rolls-Royce Dart pun mengundang perhatian dunia. Pasalnya, sebelum Vickers Viscount datang, umumnya pesawat masih menggunakan mesin piston yang tak ramah penumpang. Walaupun masih butuh beberapa perbaikan, Vickers Viscount sebagai pesawat dengan mesin turboprop pertama di dunia kala itu digadang-gadang bakal menggantikan Douglas DC-3 yang dinilai usang.Belum usai prototipe Vickers Viscount tipe 630 dengan mesin turboprop Rolls-Royce Dart, prototipe kedua Viscount tipe 663 dengan mesin jet Rolls-Royce Tay tak lama berselang siap mengudara. Prototipe ini didapuk sebagai test-bed untuk mengembangkan pesawat Vickers Valiant dengan mesin jet. Maklum, saat itu, perlombaan pengembangan pesawat jet komersial pertama di dunia cukup ketat, dengan saingan terberat datang dari rekan se-negara, De Havilland.Prototipe Vickers Viscount G-AHRF dengan livery British European Airways (BEA). Foto: baesystems.comSetelah berdiskusi dengan British European Airways (BEA) sebagai mitra utama Vickers-Armstrongs (pabrikan Vickers Viscount), varian turboprop akhirnya lebih diprioritaskan karena dinilai lebih menguntungkan. Maskapai Inggris itu pun akhirnya memesan 26 pesawat Vickers Viscount tipe 700, dengan penambahan 47 hingga 53 kursi, jauh lebih besar dari dua tipe sebelumnya.Penambahan kapastitas kursi tentu menuntut Vickers untuk menambah panjang pesawat menjadi sekitar 25 meter dari semula hanya 22 meter. Setelah menanti beberapa tahun, pada 28 Agustus 1950 protoripe Vickers Viscount tipe 700 pun berhasil terbang perdana. Prototipe dengan nomor registrasi G-AMAV inilah yang semakin meyakinkan dunia akan datangnya era pesawat turboprop yang lebih efisien, minim getaran, dan halus.Tiga tahun berselang, tepatnya pada 18 April 1953, Vickers Viscount BEA dengan nomor registrasi G-AMNY mulai masuk ke dalam layanan dengan menempuh rute London-Siprus. Momen itu pun mengukuhkanya sebagai layanan berjadwal turboprop pertama di dunia.Dalam rentang 1948 -1963, sebanyak 445 Vickers Viscount diproduksi. Dengan jumlah tersebut, Vickers Viscount menjadi pesawat pertama yang sukses dan menguntungkan setelah Perang Dunia II. Pelanggan terbesar tentu datang dari maskapai domestik sebanyak 77 unit. Sisanya, tersebar di 40 negara melalui lebih dari 60 operator. Umumnya, Eropa dan Amerika Utara masih menjadi pasar terbesar Vickers Viscount.Baca juga: 55 Tahun Lalu, Antonov An-22 Antei, Turboprop Terbesar di Dunia Terbang PerdanaAda lima varian berbeda Vickers Viscount yang diproduksi. Mulai dari tipe 630, tipe 663, tipe 700 series, serta tipe 800 series dan tipe 810 series yang lebih panjang. Dari kesemuanya itu, tipe 700 series adalah yang tersukses, dengan total penjualan sebanyak 287 unit.Dengan jangkauan maksimum mencapai 3.218 km, kemampuan melesat hingga 510 km per jam, serta ketinggian terbang mencapai 6.400 m, Vickers Viscount menjadi benar-benar menjadi idola baru maskapai di seluruh dunia, terutama untuk layanan regional. Penerbangan minim getaran dan nyaman menjadi daya tarik utama penumpang terhadap pesawat ini, melalui mesin turboprop serta jendela yang jauh lebih besar dari yang ada saat itu.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedDe Havilland Comet, Inilah Pesawat Jet Komersial Pertama di Dunia27/12/2019In “Featured”Pesawat Jet Komersial Terpendek di Dunia Rupanya Warisan Jerman Barat19/08/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”Kisah Keluarga Vickers, Pesawat Komuter Andalan Penerbangan Domestik Dekade 70-an, Punya Cerita Kelam di Indonesia!02/09/2020In “Analisa Angkutan”last_img read more

CWC 2019: Kevin Pietersen vouches for the inclusion of Vijay Shankar in the line-up

Powered by Firework Vijay Shankar has been a polarising figure for the fans and critics alike after a series of sub-par performances. The all-rounder was slotted in the line-up after Shikhar Dhawan’s tournament came to a premature end owing to a hairline fracture. Advertisement Image Courtesy: Deccan ChronicleThe all-rounder’s World Cup journey has been off to a rough start. After bagging a wicket off his very first ball, things have gone only downhill for Shankar. The right-arm medium pacer is yet to deliver a solid outing in the crucial No.4 position for the Men In Blue. Shankar could only manage a couple of patchy innings’ against Afghanistan and West Indies.While many have voiced their opinion about replacing Shankar off the line-up with either Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant, Kevin Pietersen is not one of them as he pleaded Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to back the 28-year-old in a tweet. He said:Advertisement “Dear Virat and Ravi (Shastri) — please don’t drop Vijay Shankar,” Pietersen said in a tweet on Saturday. “I think he’s coming into his own and would potentially win you tomorrow’s game.”Pietersen also voiced his concern about Pant being thrown away right into the World Cup mix. He added:Advertisement “Don’t think about Pant. He needs another three weeks preparation before I think he can get into your World Cup side.”Check out the tweet below:Read Also:  Advertisementlast_img read more
