Neoen moving forward with massive solar+wind+storage hybrid project in South Australia

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:French renewable energy developer Neoen has filed its development application for the huge $3 billion Goyder South wind, solar and storage project in South Australia which includes a proposed big battery than it nearly 10 times bigger than the expanded “Tesla big battery” at Hornsdale.The plan proposes a total of 1,200MW of wind energy, 600MW of solar PV, and 900MW/1800MWh of battery storage, an “extremely large” battery as Neoen describes it that will dwarf the 150MW/194MWh “Tesla” battery known officially as the Hornsdale Power Reserve.Each stage would be delivered in three equal tranches of 400MW wind, 200MW solar and 300MW/600MWh of battery storage. Combined, they would generate around 4.8 terawatt hours of zero emissions power each year, nearly doubling the current output of wind and solar in the state, and taking South Australia close to the Liberal government’s net 100 per cent renewables target just on its own.Neoen insists that the first stage is likely to go ahead regardless of any significant grid upgrades, but admits that the second and third stages would be contingent on the new transmission line between South Australia and NSW, known as Project EnergyConnect, going ahead. The French developer says the wind facility will be made up of up to 163 turbines, suggesting a capacity of 7.3MW per turbine – by far the biggest announced in Australia to date. It says these machines will have a maximum hub height of 160 meres, a maximum blade length of 80m, and an overall maximum height (tip height) of 240m.The lithium-ion batteries would deliver 900MW with two hours of storage, and associated infrastructure for connection to the electricity grid would include three substations, access tracks, underground connection cabling and transmission lines.[Giles Parkinson]More: Neoen files plans for $3bn wind and solar farm with battery 10 times bigger than Hornsdale Neoen moving forward with massive solar+wind+storage hybrid project in South Australialast_img read more

Get my plane! Virus-era EU summit not all smiles and elbow bumps

first_imgEuropean Union leaders had hoped the relief of seeing each other face-to-face after five months apart under coronavirus lockdown would ease their fraught debate.It did not turn out that way — despite beginning with cheerful elbow bumps and birthday gifts for 66-year-old Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor and a veteran of Brussels’ conference rooms.When the 27 leaders emerged into the dawn light on Belgium’s national day on Tuesday to unveil their post-virus recovery plan, they had been locked in a formal summit for four days and nights — more than 90 hours of horsetrading. This made it the longest EU summit since the marathon meeting in Nice, France in December 2000, after which President Jacques Chirac declared: “It’s not normal to finish at five in the morning.”Two decades later, summitry European-style had hardly changed, with EU leaders squabbling over a massive recovery fund to lift the European economy.And it all began quite pleasantly.When the summit started on Friday morning, Merkel, Europe’s most powerful leader, received gifts of an Austrian torte, a favorite French white burgundy wine and a silver flask of rose oil from Bulgaria. ‘Losing their cool’ Hours later, the first clash. Macron, fed up with the Frugals’ refusal to buckle, was said to have ordered his staff to prepare the presidential jet to take him home to Paris.Rutte, speaking to Dutch journalists, just shrugged it off and said he knew of no ultimatum.As the hours ticked on through more bilateral on Saturday, tempers frayed.One diplomat complained that the “Frugals” were making behind-the-scenes warnings to the south that financial markets could react dangerously if they didn’t cave.At a dinner, Macron, irritated by three days of fruitless discussion, denounced those who “endanger the European project” through “selfishness”.Again he threatened to storm out of the negotiations, with French officials insisting Merkel was ready to leave too.In the summit room, Macron, according to witnesses, attacked Austria’s Kurz for leaving the meeting to make a call and accused Rutte of behaving like former British leader David Cameron — whose strategy “ended badly”.At dawn on Monday, Kurz had his own take on Macron’s aggressive stance.”It’s understandable that some people, when they don’t get enough sleep, end up losing their cool,” he said.At 6am, the leaders ended up with their package, but were perhaps left wondering — like Chirac, two decades ago — whether there was some better way to reach an EU deal. Topics :center_img As the leaders removed their masks and sat down around a huge conference table in the European Council’s Europa building, for a moment thoughts of recession or pandemic seemed far away.But, as a grumpy Dutch premier Mark Rutte remarked two days later at a summit low point: “We’re not here with the intention of meeting each other on our birthdays for the rest of our lives.” ‘At an impasse’ To be fair, he’d had a bad night, culminating with a harangue from a table-thumping French President Emmanuel Macron that caused him to worry the negotiations might collapse.The first round of talks had been cordial enough.Each leader delivered their vision of what was needed from Europe — or not — in an extra-large conference room usually reserved for EU-Africa summits, to allow for social distance.The next day, the leaders got down to business with a new blueprint for the 750 billion euro package that — if agreed — would be a pioneering moment for the European unity project.EU Council Chief Charles Michel hosted leaders in small groups or one-on-one on the terrace of his Europa Building HQ with its view over Brussels, lending the summit the air of a rooftop lounge.But there was no spritz and pretzels as matters became increasingly tense and Rutte more entrenched in his low-spending position and insistence on austere labor-market reform.”We are at an impasse. It’s very complicated, more complicated than expected,” admitted Italy’s Giuseppe Conte.As big powers France and Germany went into a duel with the “Frugals” — Sweden, Denmark, Austria and the Netherlands — the leaders of smaller neutral countries wandered off to buy chips.Belgium’s Sophie Wilmes and Luxembourg’s Xavier Bettel appeared on Twitter in a sunny and festive Brussels square, and again later with the Estonian prime minister in tow for the city’s favorite snack.last_img read more

Poll protest vs 2 Negros town mayors junked

first_imgThe three municipalities – Isabela,Moises Padilla, and La Castellana — are all situated in the fifth district ofNegros Occidental. (With a report from PNA/PN) The latest decision was handed down bythe Regional Trial Court (RTC) in La Carlota City, upholding the proclamationof Irene Montilla as elected mayor of Isabela town. BACOLOD City – Two mayors in Negros Occidental who faced election protestsfiled by their opponents, based on the results of the May 13 elections, havegarnered favorable rulings from the courts. In neighboring Moises Padilla, mayorElla Garcia-Yulo earlier also hurdled the election protest filed against her byformer mayor Magdaleno Peña. Peña claimed “manufactured, padded,fraudulent, altered, distorted and illegal vote totals, which were notreflective of the true results of voting and counting in the protestedprecincts.” In the adjacent town of La Castellana,Mayor Rhumyla Mangilimutan said she was awaiting the final decision on theelection protest filed by former vice mayor Felix “Chad” Feria IV. “The proclamation of the protestee(Montilla) as the duly elected winning candidate for mayor in the municipalityof Isabela, Negros Occidental is hereby sustained and affirmed,” Judge MilaYap-Camiso of RTC Branch 74 stated in a ruling dated Oct. 10. This was sought by Feria after therevision of all precincts had been completed, but Guanzon denied his plea forlack of legal basis. Losing by 48 votes, Malabor lodged anelection protest on May 23. He obtained 13,844 votes, compared to Montilla’s13,892. Although following the revision of votes, Montilla’s lead went down to22, according to the court decision. In his Aug. 22 order, RTC Bacolod CityBranch 49 Judge Edgar Tupas stated that the protest was “summarily dismissed,motu proprio, for insufficiency in form and content.” Montilla said on Friday that she hasbeen vindicated because the court has upheld her proclamation.  Garcia-Yulo and Peña, who is her uncle,were running-mates in 2016. In the 2019 mayoral race, the former obtained13,056 votes and was proclaimed early morning a day after the elections. Peñagot 5,493 votes. In her order dated September 6, LaCarlota RTC Branch 63 Judge Frances Guanzon denied Feria’s motion to open theComelec records and pertinent election documents in the May 13 elections. Mangilimutan was proclaimed winner afterobtaining 17,822 votes against Feria’s 13,987 votes. “I’m glad it’s over. (We have) to moveforward. There’s no going back. We have three years to do what we want to do.The time may not be enough, but it’s a chance for us to do something for thetown,” she told reporters in a press briefing at the municipal hall. Consequently, the judge dismissed thepetition filed by former mayor Joselito Malabor against Montilla for lack ofmerit. The result of the revision has beendeemed submitted for resolution, the order stated. On the same day, Sheriff IV MichaelBetila returned the ballot boxes and all election paraphernalia in the court’scustody to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) officer and municipaltreasurer of Isabela, as directed by the judge. The order added that Peña’s petition tohold in abeyance the transfer of ballot boxes was “noted without action forbeing moot and academic.”last_img read more

Black Cats keen on Mignolet stay

first_img The 24-year-old this week moved to reassure O’Neill that he was happy on Wearside after agent Guy Vandermissen hinted he may have to leave for a higher-profile club if he is to achieve his ambition of replacing Thibaut Courtois as Belgium’s first-choice goalkeeper. O’Neill, who celebrates his 61st birthday on Friday, revealed talks over an extension at the Stadium of Light are under way despite Mignolet having two years of his existing deal still to run, and the Northern Irishman is determined to resolve that situation as quickly as possible. He said: “We would really like to try to tie him down to a longer contract.” O’Neill added: “There have been talks about that for some time, but I think we would really want to try to firm that up as soon as we could. I think he’s receptive to it.” Mignolet has arguably been Sunderland’s best player in a testing Barclays Premier League campaign to date, and the fact that he acted swiftly to silence the alarm bells will have come as a relief to O’Neill and the club’s supporters alike, although the former was relaxed about the whole situation. He said: “I hadn’t been made aware of it at all and he came up to me to tell me that he thought there was something lost in translation. “The agent who was working in the office had made some comment about it and really, if you think about what he said – I haven’t seen it first hand and therefore, it’s unfair of me to make a comment – but if the gist of it was that Atletico Madrid are a better side than Sunderland, well I am not so sure that too many people would disagree with that. I haven’t a major problem with that. Our job is to try to make us at some time or another as good as them.” Mignolet will hope to underline his importance to the Black Cats once again on Saturday as he and his team-mates attempt to end a run of three successive league defeats by beating Fulham at the Stadium of Light. They will do so with Republic of Ireland winger James McClean once again having been told to let his football do the talking. The Derry-born 23-year-old this week closed his Twitter account in the wake of criticism over a tweet about the Wolfe Tones song the Broad Black Brimmer, which tells the story of a boy whose father is killed fighting for the IRA. O’Neill said: “James himself came off Twitter before I had the conversation with him anyway, and I think he realises now. He wants to really concentrate on the game. He felt he was, (talking to McClean) but come off this and go and get yourself back to where you were, playing brilliantly for us this time last year.” Sunderland boss Martin O’Neill is desperate to tie-up keeper Simon Mignolet on a long-term contract.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Tokyo 2020: Ex-Olympian Pledges Assistance to Athletes

first_imgPreparation by Team Nigeria ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games has received a boost with a former Olympian, Isaac Uche, offering to assist the athletes through the 1st Uche Isaac Sprint/Relay Athletics Championship scheduled for next year in Lagos.The maiden championship, which would hold on April 11, 2020 at the Yaba College of Technology Mini-Stadium, would see athletes compete in the 100m, 200m, 400m, relays and other activities.According to the sponsor, Uche Isaac, the competition will help to prepare Team Nigeria athletics contingent for both Tokyo 2020 and Paris 2024 Olympic games. “I am tired of people blaming government or the Athletics Federation of Nigeria for failure to prepare athletes for major games.

MBB : TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT: Late run after Jackson elbow helps SU hold off Friars in conference opener

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 27, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Syracuse was on the ropes. With the Orange clinging to a five-point lead, Providence threatened to pull even closer after a technical foul call on SU senior Rick Jackson.What was a 10-point halftime lead was already cut in half, and the Friars had two free throws and possession to pull even closer. SU needed someone to step up to stop the bleeding.And Scoop Jardine did just that.Providence couldn’t capitalize on the technical, making just one of the free throws and sending a pass out of bounds on the extra opportunity. Shortly after, SU’s junior point guard scored on a fastbreak layup and then knocked down a transition 3 to put the Syracuse lead back at nine.Those buckets sparked a 14-2 run that ultimately gave the Orange (14-0, 1-0 Big East) just enough separation to hold off Providence (11-3, 0-1) in front of 20,388 fans at the Carrier Dome Tuesday. Junior forward Kris Joseph carried the No. 5 Orange in the first half with 17 of his career-high 27 points before halftime. But it was Jardine who led SU after the break, tallying 17 of his 21 in the second half, including nine of them during the decisive run.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘It was an opportunity that I took,’ Jardine said. ‘Everything opened up for me. First half, I was passing the ball, getting guys involved. And it opened up to me (in the second) and I just took what they gave me.’Though it was nearly 29 minutes into the action before things opened up for Jardine, it took only 23 second for Joseph to catch fire. After the Orange won the opening tip, Jackson found Joseph in the corner for a wide-open 3.After that, Joseph didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger from deep, especially as Providence continued to leave him open. Twelve of his 17 first-half points came from beyond the arc. Even when the Friars finally did get a hand in his face late in the first, the junior was able to knock down a long jumper.‘I’m definitely feeling more comfortable shooting the ball,’ Joseph said. ‘And I think that teams, sooner or later, are going to stop backing off of me. I’m not Andy Rautins, but I’m probably pretty respectable at this point in time.’Joseph’s performance helped Syracuse build a 42-32 halftime lead, but Providence clawed its way back before the technical on Jackson. As the senior forward pulled in a rebound and drew a foul from Friars forward Kadeem Batts, his elbow inadvertently connected with Vincent Council’s head.The referees assessed a technical to Jackson, but Providence couldn’t take advantage. Instead, the Orange began what turned out to be the game’s crucial run.After Joseph found Jardine for both the layup and the transition 3 that sparked the 14-2 stretch, sophomore guard Brandon Triche scored on a post move inside.Then it was all Jardine.The point guard scored at the rim on a fastbreak after a pass fake to Joseph to put the Orange up 60-47. After the Friars finally scored on a Duke Mondy layup, Jardine got to the line and knocked down two free throws. One possession later, he kicked the ball out to Triche in the corner for an open 3 to cap off the run.‘I thought the game was in (Providence’s) momentum,’ Triche said. ‘… Just to go on that stretch, I’m sure it made them a little nervous, and I think they took the pedal off us a little bit more.’The Friars were able to cut the lead back down to four with 56 seconds left, but SU knocked down 6-of-8 free throws down the stretch to maintain the lead and pull out the victory.Jackson said that after his technical foul, Syracuse did need someone to step up and take over for SU. In Jackson’s mind, it could have been anyone of the Orange’s scorers. Tuesday night, it just happened to be Jardine.‘This is the type of team that any given night, a guy can just take over and have a great game. We have so many great guys that some nights it’s hard to call who’s going to do what. But you always know someone’s going to do something.’[email protected]last_img read more
