Yingli reports 240 MW shipment

first_imgYingli reports 240 MW shipmentChinese panel maker is trying to kill a rumor it has been forced, by debts, to halt production. Yingli will supply panels exclusively for Latin America’s largest PV-CSP hybrids. July 10, 2015 Max Hall Finance Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share As Chinese panel giant Yingli strives to kill a persistent rumor it has halted production due to an unsustainable debt burden, its press department today released news of a 240 MW shipment to Chile. The Baoding-based manufacturer emphasized, having completed the first phase of the 780,000-panel order, the second-phase will take place next month. The YGE 72-cell panels are being exclusively provided by Yingli for Latin America’s two largest hybrid PV and concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, both of which are based in northern Chile, which Bloomberg New Energy Finance today named as the biggest global growth market for clean energy investment from April to June. Yingli says the first of the projects – which also feature 110 MW of CSP and thermal storage – to come online is expected to be switched on by the middle of next year.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.

Canadian Solar to supply 112 MW of PV modules to Sunrun in 2016

first_imgCanadian Solar to supply 112 MW of PV modules to Sunrun in 2016This large purchase by the third-largest U.S. residential installer shows diversification away from REC Solar, its main supplier for the last two years. November 24, 2015 Christian Roselund Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Today Canadian Solar announced that it will supply Sunrun with 112 MW of its CS6P-265P multicrystalline silicon solar PV modules during 2016. This is a large order even for the U.S. market, where a rush of installations is expected in advance of the drop-down of the Investment Tax Credit at the end of 2016.GTM Research Solar Analyst Nicole Litvak notes that Sunrun has used mostly REC Solar modules for the past two years, but was not able to comment on why the company might be diversifying.It is also unclear where Canadian Solar is supplying these modules from, and the company declined to provide any information beyond the sparse facts in the press release.In this release Canadian Solar notes that it is the largest North American module maker. However, if these modules are made in the company’s Ontario factories they will still need to source cells. If the cells in these modules come from Canadian Solar’s Chinese production, the modules will be subject to 2012 import duty levels.REC Solar cells and modules are made at a vertically integrated factory in Singapore and are not subject to U.S. import duties.Sunrun both supplies its third-party financing solutions to a network of solar installers and hosts a direct installation business, which is responsible for about half of its deployments. Through direct installations alone, Sunrun is the third-largest residential installer in the United States.This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

Authorities: 158 people arrested at ‘massive underground party’ in LA County

first_imgLos Angeles County Sheriff’s Office via FacebookBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles County deputies arrested nearly 160 people at a “massive underground party” that violated state coronavirus orders, authorities said.Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the “super-spreader” event, which was held in a vacant home in Palmdale on Saturday, was also the site of alleged underage trafficking.“This was a flagrant violation of the governor’s health order,” Villanueva said at a press briefing Tuesday. But, he added, “even without the health order, these actions were criminal in nature.”Los Angeles County deputies arrested 120 adults and 38 juveniles at the party, all of whom were issued citations for violating health orders, authorities said. Among those arrested, five people were also charged with burglary, one with possession of a firearm and one with obstruction. The “entire organizing network” of the party — three 18-year-olds and two 17-year-olds — was arrested, authorities said.Deputies recovered six firearms and were able to rescue a 17-year-old human trafficking victim, Villanueva added.A rental truck with video equipment was found at the scene, authorities said.“This is how brazen this operation was,” Villanueva said.The sheriff’s department is targeting these types of “super-spreader events,” as opposed to restaurants and businesses that violate county and state health orders, Villanueva said.“We don’t have unlimited resources,” he said. “This is something that is worth spending our resources to clamp down on because these super-spreader events, if we get rid of them, we’re going to improve our ability to fight the pandemic on a whole scale.”At least half a dozen of these types of events occur on a “weekly basis” on weekends, Villanueva said. The organizers of this event allegedly promoted parties in Pomona and Ontario over the weekend, he added.It is unknown at this time if anyone arrested this weekend has tested positive for COVID-19, officials said Tuesday.The bust comes as Los Angeles County is reporting record COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. The five-day average for daily new cases is 8,993 — nearly double what was reported the day after Thanksgiving, health officials said.Last month, the county issued a temporary stay-at-home order and banned outdoor dining amid the surge. The county is now under a state-issued stay-at-home order after the Southern California region’s available intensive care unit capacity dipped below 15% on Saturday. Both orders prohibited gatherings with people outside one’s household.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

EU criticises Turkish raids

first_imgRaids carried out by the Turkish authorities on media deemed critical of the Turkish government are “incompatible” with media freedom and go “against the European values and standards Turkey aspires to be part of”, the European Union said in a strongly worded statement yesterday (14 December).Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign-policy chief, was reacting to raids earlier in the day on media outlets viewed as having ties to a US-based Muslim cleric. At least 24 journalists, media staff and former police officers are reported to have been detained in more than a dozen towns and cities.The most high-profile figure arrested was Ekrem Dumanlı, the editor-in-chief of Zaman, a daily. His arrest was broadcast live on television. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has previously accused the cleric, Fethullah Gulen, a former ally, of trying to overthrow his government.“The police raids and arrests of a number of journalists and media representatives in Turkey today are incompatible with the freedom of media, which is a core principle of democracy,” Mogherini said.The statement, which Mogherini issued together with Johannes Hahn, the European commissioner for the EU’s neighbourhood policy and enlargement negotiations, continued: “We expect that the principle of presumption of innocence will prevail and recall the inalienable right for an independent and transparent investigation in case of any alleged wrongdoing, with full respect of the rights of the defendants.”The blunt statement came days after Mogherini and Hahn led a large delegation to Turkey intended, Mogherini said, to underline the importance of EU-Turkey relations. “We expect that the strong EU commitment given by our Turkish counterparts during our visit to be translated into deeds,” Mogherini and Hahn said yesterday.During their visit, Mogherini and Hahn – together with Christos Stylianides, the European commissioner for humanitarian aid – met Erdoğan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, as well as Volkan Bozkır, Turkey’s minister for EU affairs.Turkey’s stalled accession process will be discussed by ministers from the EU’s 28 member states tomorrow (16 December), along with the progress made by other would-be members of the EU. Speaking before the visit, an EU official said that the trip was “a big political investment. It is not a gift; it is because it is in our interest”.He said that the trip was a response to the “reality” that Turkey “is one of the biggest countries closest to the EU”, and the recent scarcity of top-level European contact with Turkey, in absolute terms and relative to the number of visits paid by the United States.Another official said that there are “plenty of areas of joint interest and potential co-operation which are hugely untapped, mainly in the economic area”.last_img read more

Brett Moffitt wins at Chicagoland as Nemechek has fuel issue on last lap

first_imgJOLIET, Ill. – Brett Moffitt didn’t hear the words that turned Friday night’s Overton’s 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in his favor.“I’m blowing up!” John Hunter Nemechek shouted over his team radio as he entered Turn 1 with the lead on the final lap at Chicagoland Speedway.Nemechek’s misfortune proved an unexpected boon to Moffitt, who won the race by 5.092 seconds over Ben Rhodes, as Nemechek faded to seventh at the finish—not with a blown engine, as he had thought, but with an empty fuel cell.Moffit’s victory—his third of the season and the fourth of his career—was all the more unlikely because his Hattori Racing Enterprises didn’t have the resources to come to the 1.5-mile track until Fr8Auctions.com made a midweek commitment to sponsor Moffitt’s Toyota in Friday’s race.“We weren’t even supposed to be here,” said crew chief Scott Zipadelli.Moffitt and Nemechek battled through the final 24-lap green-flag run, with Moffitt taking the lead by a nose on Lap 136 of 150. Nemechek regained the top spot on the following circuit, moved his line to the top of the track and began to pull away.When he took the white flag to start the final lap, Nemechek was ahead by roughly five truck-lengths before his fuel tank ran dry and Moffitt sped past.RELATED: Full race results | Moffitt’s Victory Lane celebration | Nemechek: ‘Luck not on our side’“This is great,” Moffitt said after climbing from his No. 16 Hattori Racing Enterprises Toyota Tundra. “We didn’t know if we were coming. To be here in Victory Lane, it’s an honor and a blessing.“These guys work hard. I feel like we threw away a couple of wins this season. I hate it for the No. 8 (Nemechek), whatever happened to him. But we’ll take it however we can get it right now.”Moffitt was prepared to try a banzai run on the final lap, as Noah Gragson had tried unsuccessfully to do to Moffitt on June 16 at Iowa Speedway. As it turned out, Moffitt didn’t have to.“I got a good run off Turn 4 as we took the white,” Moffitt said. “I committed to what Noah did to me at Iowa. And halfway up the hill (in Turn 1), something happened and they said ‘Just take it easy.’ That’s a great way to be able to just drive easy through 3 and 4 to win one.“I can’t thank everyone on this team enough and Fr8Auctions that even got us here this week. Tuesday, we didn’t even know. They really extended a hand and helped us when we needed it the most.”Nemechek, who is running a limited schedule in both the Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series, bemoaned the ill fortune that kept him out of Victory Lane.“We just don’t have luck on our side right now,” Nemechek said. “Overall, it’s a good showing. They knew we were here. We don’t know at what point we’ll be back with the trucks. It’s frustrating and disappointing, but we’ll move on from it.“If we keep doing what we’re doing and running like we are, we’re going to win races. That’s the biggest thing. The results haven’t been what we wanted this year on the Xfinity side and the Truck side, but tonight was a real heartbreak.”Johnny Sauter ran third and retained his series lead by 65 points over Gragson, who started from the pole and finished fourth. Brandon Jones completed the top five in the No. 51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota.The Camping World Truck Series will be back on track at Kentucky Speedway for the Buckle Up in Your Truck 225 (July 12 at 9 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).last_img read more

Obama also announced an immediate investment of $100 million to support relief efforts, send more life-saving equipment, food, water and medicine. “For the sake of the Haitian people who have suffered so much, and for the sake of our common humanity, we stand in solidarity with our neighbors to the south, knowing that but for the grace of God, there we go.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMore AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThis morning, President Obama updated the world on the first phase of US rescue and relief efforts:  “At this very moment one of the largest relief efforts in our recent history is moving towards Haiti.”   The poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, the president acknowledged that few in the world have endured the hardships of Haiti, but offered hope for our neighbors to the South:  “To the people of Haiti, we say clearly, and with conviction, you will not be forsaken; you will not be forgotten. In this, your hour of greatest need, America stands with you. The world stands with you.” “This morning, I can report that the first waves of our rescue and relief workers are on the ground and at work.  A survey team worked overnight to identify priority areas for assistance and search-and-rescue teams are actively working to save lives… An airlift has been set up to deliver high-priority items like water and medicine.”last_img read more
