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.

5 of 8 victims identified from New Mexico bus crash; deaths caused by blunt force trauma

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(THOUREAU, N.M.) — Five of the eight people killed in a horrific bus crash in New Mexico on Thursday have been identified.Authorities also announced all eight people died as a result of blunt force trauma, according to the medical investigator.The first five victims were identified as Charla Bale, 34, Terry Mason, 45, Veronica Jean Williams, 49, Sadie Thomas, 50, and Luis Alvarez, 50.Authorities believe, based on an interview with the driver, that the tractor trailer blew out a tire and veered across a median before it hit a Greyhound bus head-on, according to New Mexico State Police. The accident happened on I-40 near Thoreau, New Mexico.Alvarez was the driver of the bus. “My heart goes out to the families of these victims. We are always diligent to try and identify decedents quickly so we can release them back to their families,” Dr. Kurt Nolte, chief medical investigator, said in a statement. “We know there are other families who are still waiting for word of their loved ones and we are using several identification methods to make those identifications.”New Mexico State Police and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) continue to investigate the accident.The NTSB has downloaded and will analyze information from the electronic logging devices (ELD) of both the Greyhound bus and the semi truck. ELDs have been mandated for all commercial vehicles since December 2017, and it synchronizes with a vehicles engine to record driving time. The NTSB said information obtained from both ELDs will be important to their investigation, providing information on the vehicle’s motion. The NTSB has identified Jag Trucking Inc., a new company that began operating in 2014, as the operator of the semi. Jag started the New Entrant Safety Assurance Program in 2014 as required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and completed the program with a satisfactory rating.On Monday, NTSB investigators will meet with Jag company representatives and are working to schedule an interview with the driver. They’re currently an unrated carrier.The NTSB has subpoenaed blood tests for both the semi driver and bus driver, and they are interviewing passengers on the bus to figure out how injuries occurred.The agency released photos of investigators inspection of the left tire of the truck, which may have caused the accident.

Turkey lifts ban on German MPs’ visit to air base

first_imgTurkey will allow German lawmakers to visit the Incirlik Air Base after banning them from entering following a parliament vote on a resolution that describes the killings of Armenians during Ottoman times as genocide.Die Welt reported on Thursday that Turkey most likely had a change of heart following Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement at the G20 that the resolution, adopted by the Bundestag June 2, was not binding.Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said German parliamentarians will be allowed to visit their soldiers in the air base after Berlin “fulfilled Turkey’s expectations regarding the so-called Armenian genocide resolution approved recently by its parliament,” according to a report by state-run Anadolu new agency. Speaking at a joint press conference in Ankara on Thursday with his Saudi counterpart, Çavuşoğlu said: “We did not give the needed permission to visit Incirlik. The reason was obvious.” He said Turkish officials were satisfied with Merkel’s assurance that the resolution is not binding and said her statement “could serve as an example and a guide for anyone in the world, especially for parliamentarians,” according to Anadolu.“In other words, it said: genocide is a legal term, it is not a generic and political term,” Çavuşoğlu said.The lawmakers’ visit to Incirlik in southern Turkey was scheduled for early October.German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier welcomed Ankara’s decision. He said it brings the trip to the air base, in which 250 German soldiers are based to participate in the U.S.-led air campaign against ISIL positions in Syria, “a step closer.”On Tuesday, Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen announced that she planned to invest €58 million in Incirlik.

Lady Cards can be co-champs with win Saturday

first_img     Should Central Arkansas and Lamar both win, the teams would tie for the Southland title, but Central Arkansas would hold the tiebreaker advantage for the top seed.    All other scenarios would give the Lady Cardinals the No. 2 seed. In any event, Lamar has earned a bye into the tourney semifinals, meaning the Lady Cardinals won’t play until next Saturday in Katy.    “Having a bye into the semifinals is nice,” Harmony said. “It means you have to just win twice to win the tourney. That’s a lot better than having to win three or four games in as many days.”    Southeastern Louisiana (8-21, 7-10) has already been officially eliminated from tournament consideration, so Saturday’s game will be the last of the season for the Lady Lions.     Southeastern Louisiana was a 67-62 winner over Lamar back on Jan. 18 in Hammond, La.    Saturday will be Senior Day for Lamar, as the Lady Cardinals honor four players who will be playing their last regular-season game: Gia Ayers, Francesca Bellatin, Chantelle Brockett and Alice Robinson. Ayers, who leads Lamar in scoring (15.3), will be playing her 100th career game. The entire regular season for the Lamar Lady Cardinals boils down to one game: Saturday’s clash with Southeastern Louisiana at the Montagne Center. Tipoff is 4 p.m.    A win would give the Lady Cardinals (17-11 overall, 12-5 Southland Conference) a share of the conference crown for the first time since the 2009-10 season. A loss would leave Lamar tied for second.    “We have to give it everything we have,” Lamar coach Robin Harmony said. “We’d like to raise a banner next season.”    A Lamar win combined with a Stephen F. Austin win over Central Arkansas would give the Lady Cardinals a share of the Southland title with SFA and the top seed in next week’s Southland Conference Tournament. It would also assure a guaranteed berth in a postseason tournament.last_img read more
