U.S. Solar ‘SunShot’ Program Achieves Utility-Scale Price Goal Three Years Ahead of Schedule

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Green Tech Media:The solar industry has met the 2020 utility-scale solar cost target set by the Energy Department’s SunShot Initiative — three years early.The DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) released new research today that shows the average price of utility-scale solar is now under $1 per watt and below 6 cents per kilowatt-hour.That’s higher than the record-breaking project bids we’ve seen in the U.S. and abroad in recent years. But that’s because DOE calculations for levelized cost of energy (LCOE) do not include subsidies — such as the federal Investment Tax Credit — and are based on the average climate in Kansas City, Missouri. (Note: GTM documented the sub-$1 per watt milestone earlier this year, but the department is using its own metrics.)“Our mission is to make solar affordable for all Americans, and so our goals are defined for average U.S. climates. We use Kansas City as that example,” said Becca Jones-Albertus, acting deputy director of the SunShot Initiative. “Hitting a 6 cents per kilowatt-hour target for Kansas is a more significant metric than hitting 6 cents in sunnier parts of the country.”GTM Research reported that U.S. utility-scale fixed-tilt system pricing fell below $1.00 per watt earlier this year using a different methodology.Technology innovation has been a primary driver of the cost declines since 2011. Solar module costs have seen a particularly dramatic cost reduction in recent years. That’s due in part to efficiency improvements as a result of material quality and innovative cell and module designs, as well as the development of diamond wafer sawing, which dramatically reduces material loss in the making of silicon wafers. The NREL report found that module prices also declined substantially over the past year due to an oversupply. Going forward, the Suniva/SolarWorld trade case could have a significant impact on the economics of solar in the U.S. — and could put the SunShot goals beyond reach again. According to DOE researchers, the tariff requested on imported solar modules would have a 2-2.5 cent impact on the LCOE for solar. If module prices increase from roughly 35 cents today to 78 cents under a new tariff scenario, the cost of a utility-scale solar system would increase from roughly $1 per watt to $1.38 per watt. When the SunShot goals were set in 2011, they seemed aspirational. At that time, utility-scale solar prices were around 27 cents per kilowatt-hour. The U.S. solar industry has achieved a decrease in cost by a factor of four in less than seven years — beating the DOE’s 2020 goal. The DOE is now targeting to reach 3 cents per kilowatt-hour for utility-scale solar by 2030.Residential- and commercial-scale solar costs have not fallen as fast; however, the industry is more than 85 percent of the way toward achieving SunShot’s 2020 goals for those segments. NREL estimates that the total installed system cost has declined to $2.80 per watts (dc) for residential systems, $1.85 per watt (dc) for commercial. Ongoing reductions in soft costs will play a key role in driving these prices lower.Progress toward meeting the SunShot goals “is a reflection of the speed of change across the entire industry,” said Charlie Gay, director of the SunShot Initiative. “Not just solar, but all sorts of [technologies] are changing at a rapid speed, which makes it daunting to plan the energy system [and] the networks when so many moving parts are making such rapid progress.”Daniel Simmons, acting assistant secretary of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, added that the LCOE for solar doesn’t reflect the real-world cost of the technology because solar is not dispatchable. So comparing the LCOE for solar to the cost of a natural-gas plant “is not always apples to apples,” he said. The fact that solar and wind are not always available on demand “is a challenge we’re trying to solve with these new funding investments,” Simmons said.More: DOE Officially Marks SunShot’s $1 per Watt Goal for Utility-Scale Solar U.S. Solar ‘SunShot’ Program Achieves Utility-Scale Price Goal Three Years Ahead of Schedulelast_img read more

Indian state of Kerala moving forward with 125MW floating solar project

first_imgIndian state of Kerala moving forward with 125MW floating solar project FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享ETEnergyworld.com:The Idukki district could soon become a power hub in the state. The Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) is setting up solar floating panels at the Idukki reservoir to produce 125MW of power.The 125MW panels will be placed in Anchuruli and Cheruthoni areas of the dam where direct sunlight is available, said officials. A large surface area of water at the Idukki reservoir where direct sunlight is available is conducive for floating solar panels, according to a feasibility study by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) at Idukki reservoir. The report has been submitted to KSEB.“The NTPC report found Idukki reservoir apt to install floating solar panels. As per the report, the first phase will generate 125MW and after two years, another 200MW project would be installed. In the first phase, the 100MW solar panels will be installed at Anchuruli area and 25MW will implemented at Cheruthoni area of the reservoir,” Rajan P, KSEB director (transmission, system operation and REES), told TOI.“We need a forest clearance to the project and KSEB will move the state forest minister-level to get the clearance. We plan to begin the project in December,” Rajan said. “As per the agreement, NTPC will implement the solar power project at Idukki reservoir and KSEB will purchase power from NTPC. The board will sign an agreement with NTPC to purchase the power. KSEB will set up a 220KV substation at Nirmalacity near Kattappana to transfer the solar power. KSEB is ready to fix underlying cables to transfer the power,” said the official.“This is an initiative that the Union government stressed on generation of green and renewable energy from non-conventional sources. KSEB has no other way to generate green energy,” he said.[Sandeep Thomas]More: Floating solar panels will be set up at the Idukki reservoir to produce 125 mwlast_img read more

Britain unveils fresh $37b package to stimulate economy

first_imgThe United Kingdom government on Wednesday unveiled a package worth 30 billion poundsterling (US$37 billion) to save jobs, help the young into work and kickstart the British economy ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic.Delivering a mini-budget to parliament, finance minister Rishi Sunak’s announced measures including bonuses to companies retaining staff and taking on apprentices, investment in ‘green’ jobs and even allowing the whole country to enjoy discounted meals in restaurants.  “People need to know that although hardship lies ahead, no-one will be left without hope,” said Chancellor of the Exchequer Sunak. Noting that “people are anxious about losing their jobs, about unemployment rising”, Sunak said: “We’re not just going to accept this.” But he insisted that the government’s furlough scheme already in operation to protect millions of private-sector jobs had to end in October. Other measures announced by Sunak include a temporary cut to value added tax on food, accommodation and attractions – and a higher  threshold for stamp duty on home purchases to help the construction sector.’25 percent contraction’ Britain has suffered Europe’s deadliest outbreak of COVID-19 and a nationwide shutdown led to the worst economic downturn among the G7 leading industrialized states.Sunak said the UK economy had contracted by 25 percent over the coronavirus lockdown – “the same amount it grew in the previous 18 years”.The chancellor also confirmed 3 billion poundsterling of green investment, after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed to “build, build, build” out of the economic crisis.The investment package includes 2 billion poundsterling in grants for households to insulate homes and make them more energy efficient, and 1 billion poundsterling for public sector buildings, including hospitals.The plan is part also of Britain’s long-term pledge to reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050 to tackle climate change.Britain imposed a nationwide lockdown on March 23 to halt the spread of COVID-19 but has gradually begun easing restrictions to help ailing businesses, including pubs and hair salons.Recent official data show the UK’s biggest quarterly contraction for more than 40 years – at minus 2.2 percent – in the January-March period.However, the data included only the first full week of the lockdown – and Sunak suggested Wednesday that the second quarter was far worse.Since the crisis began, the Bank of England has pumped cash stimulus worth 300 billion poundsterling into Britain’s economy and slashed its main interest rate to a record-low 0.1 percent – moves aimed at propping up businesses and saving jobs.Experts estimate the total cost of government emergency measures could also run as high as 300 billion poundsterling.The government’s fresh jobs retention plans unveiled Wednesday meanwhile build on its furlough scheme, under which the state is paying up to 80 percent of salaries for some nine million workers.Sunak on Wednesday said the furlough scheme “cannot and should not go on forever”, telling MPs: “I know that when furlough ends it will be a difficult moment… But the truth is, calling for endless extensions to the furlough is just as irresponsible as it would have been, back in June, to end the scheme overnight. “We have to be honest,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Palace tightens protocols following COVID-19 scares

first_imgHealth protocols have been more strictly enforced on the grounds of the Presidential Palace, including for state guests and embedded journalists, following repeated incidents of COVID-19 infection in close proximity to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.Presidential Secretariat head Heru Budi Hartono said that his office would take no chances in order to minimize the risk of transmission, as guests of the President are now obliged to undergo multiple COVID-19 tests.“Whoever will meet the President in person will need to undergo a swab test [prior to the meeting] and a rapid test on the day, even though they have already been tested,” Heru said in a recent statement to the press. He also gave an assurance that physical distancing measures, proper face cover with masks and handwashing protocols were also being very strictly enforced.The secretariat saw the shift in protocol after it emerged that two regional leaders were confirmed to have contracted the disease just days after meeting with Jokowi.Riau Islands Governor Isdianto tested positive with COVID-19 four days after attending a swearing-in ceremony at the State Palace on July 27, while Surakarta Deputy Mayor Achmad Purnomo was tested on July 18. His results came back positive on July 23 – a week after meeting the President on July 16.Jokowi himself took a swab test the same day and Achmad revealed to the press that he was infected with the disease, and palace officials were quick to dismiss any more speculation that the President may be infected as well. Prior to the two cases, palace officials had announced that Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi had contracted the coronavirus on March 14. He was eventually discharged from Gatot Subroto Army Hospital (RSPAD) in Central Jakarta on April 15.The recent cases that occurred so close to the nation’s leader should serve as a wake-up call for officials working in the palace complex, said Pandu Riono, an epidemiologist at the University of Indonesia.“There should be a protocol for state activities during the pandemic era,” Pandu told The Jakarta Post on Thursday. “The regulations should be reviewed and better testing tools should be used if they are available.”He said that consistency was key in implementing strict protocols, stressing that any gesture of compliance by Jokowi would play a significant role in ensuring that the message would get across to the general public.“Everyone – without exception – should wear masks, particularly in certain situations such as state ceremonial events. In any kind of event, the President should lead by example by wearing masks correctly and consistently,” said Pandu.Jokowi and some of his ministers have drawn criticism after a photo of a Cabinet meeting held on Aug. 3 showed the President without a mask as he led the briefing with his Cabinet members.Heru argued that the President and his ministers had fulfilled the necessary protocols and that they were “putting the masks on and off” during that meeting because it would often muffle their voices when speaking.Acrylic partitions were also installed on the table separating Jokowi and his ministers in order to minimize the risk of transmission, Heru added.COVID-19 transmissions have shown little signs of easing in Indonesia. On Thursday, the Health Ministry announced 2,098 new confirmed cases, bringing nationwide case numbers to 132,816. As many as 5,968 people have succumbed to the disease as of Thursday, the data revealed, with 887,558 people having recovered from the virus.The stricter health protocols also apply to members of the press that report from the Presidential Palace complex. Journalists now need to show proof of having undergone rapid tests in the last two weeks when they visit the palace.Meanwhile, those who are embedded in the presidential entourage for Jokowi’s official trips will get a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test from the secretariat.“Due to the high [rate] of COVID-19 transmissions, we are more thorough in [implementing health protocols]. But access for news gathering will not be reduced as there are technologies that can be used [to compensate for it],” said Bey Machmudin, deputy head for protocol, press and media at the Presidential Secretariat.Separately, the chairman of the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI), Abdul Manan, said it was understandable that media access to the President was slightly restricted during the current pandemic.He said, however, that officials should instead hold regular press briefings to ensure that information can still be relayed to the public.Topics :last_img read more

Why Chelsea’s season is in danger of unravelling under Maurizio Sarri

first_img CommentShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitter1.1kShares By Ewan Roberts, Deputy sports editorMonday 11 Feb 2019 11:30 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link1.1kShares At any other club, being one point off the top four places while trying to install a very defined, attacking style of play in your maiden campaign would be considered a promising start. But not Chelsea. After Sunday’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Manchester City, Maurizio Sarri is fearing for his future after barely seven months in the job.Admittedly, the nature of recent defeats, and performances, is worrying. This was Chelsea’s worst defeat since losing 7-0 to Nottingham Forest in 1991 and marks their third consecutive away defeat. All have been trouncings. After going unbeaten in their first 12 Premier League matches under Sarri, the wheels have firmly come off. So where has it all gone wrong?…AdvertisementAdvertisementFailing to adapt his philosophy The make-up of the team is still largely geared towards Conte’s pragmatic football and his 3-4-3 formation. Sarri switched to a flat back four but without a left-back to play in it, while his midfield three needed a goalscorer of the Marek Hamsik ilk as much as it needed the playmaking ability of Jorginho. Chelsea have ageing players in key positions, centre-backs not adept at defending space in behind them and a tepid midfield. Even the loan signing of Gonzalo Higuain has a major whiff of short-termism about it.Chelsea have only half backed their manager. ‘People don’t understand how difficult it is,’ said Guardiola after Sunday’s game. ‘It needs time. It depends on the belief from the owners, the people who are in charge.’ Six of the City XI that started against Chelsea were signed by Guardiola. In just under three years, he has spent almost £500m. It takes world-class players to play world-class football, and Sarri doesn’t have enough at his disposal.Should Chelsea get rid of Maurizio Sarri?Yes – sack him!0%No – he needs more time!0%Share your resultsShare your resultsTweet your resultsMore: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut? Ian Wright picks his Arsenal starting XI vs Manchester CityArsene Wenger explains why Mikel Arteta is ‘lucky’ to be managing ArsenalEx-Arsenal scout claims Mikel Arteta will give Thomas Partey a new role But Sarri has not adapted. The Italian appears to be even more dogmatic than Guardiola and continues to persist with the exact same ideas, formation and personnel – even his kick-off routines never change. A defence that shipped four goals at the Vitality Stadium, and was well beaten by Arsenal before that, needed to be solidified. Instead Sarri tried to beat a City side far deeper into their development at their own game and was ruthlessly exposed.The Kante-Jorginho conundrum Sarri on whether he will alter his plans ‘Why? I want to do well playing plan A. I don’t want to change something that at the moment doesn’t work very well. I want to see my football played very well. Then we can change something.’ Advertisement In pressing high and leaving space in behind, Chelsea played into City’s hands (Picture: Getty)Sarri has spoken frequently about the lessons he has tried to learn from Pep Guardiola, who had a mixed debut season in the Premier League when trying to install his own exacting style of play – it was the Catalan, in fact, who suggested that his counterpart stick to a core of just 14 players when trying to impose his philosophy at the club. But one aspect of Guardiola’s management Sarri has failed to appreciate is how much he adapted to English football.Manchester City had plenty of setbacks in that first campaign under Guardiola – notably a 4-0 drubbing at Goodison Park – and he duly tweaked his ideas. More physicality was brought into the team: two rapid full-backs, the tireless energy of Bernardo Silva and height across the back-line. He even spent weeks in training getting his side to manage second balls better. The champions are unquestionably a more fearsome and powerful unit as a result. Guardiola’s signings vs Sarri’s signings Chelsea signings under Sarri: Jorginho, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Mateo Kovacic (loan), Gonzalo Higuain (loan). Total spend: £128.6mMan City signings under Guardiola: Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Leroy Sane, John Stones, Claudio Bravo, Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy, Aymeric Laporte, Riyad Mahrez. Total spend: £487.2m Sarri made two transfers while Guardiola has added 14 players to his first-team squad (Getty)This is not so much a failing of Sarri as it is the whole Chelsea structure and mindset. Had Antonio Conte not left Stamford Bridge, he would have looked to cull as many as 10 first-team players – in truth, Sarri has done much the same by ostracising a number of fringe players (Danny Drinkwater notably has not played a single minute of football), though without bringing in any replacements.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe Italian made two major signings in the summer, with Jorginho also swapping Naples for west London and Kepa Arrizabalaga becoming the most expensive goalkeeper in history. The Spaniard, as has been the case several times this season, could have done more to prevent several of Manchester City’s goals on Sunday – particularly Ilkay Gundogan’s rather tame effort from the edge of the area. Moreover, his arrival did not strengthen the squad, merely replacing Thibaut Courtois. That decision was particularly highlighted by Fernandinho at the Etihad. Even Guardiola, lauded as a benchmark by Sarri, understands the importance of having a solid, imposing, defensive presence at the base of his midfield – at times this season he has even used John Stones there. The Brazilian recorded eight combined tackles and interceptions on Sunday; Jorginho just half that. In continuing to use Kante further forward, Sarri is criminally wasting one of his greatest weapons.Not strengthening the squad Jorginho had another poor game against a top-six side as Man City ran riot (Picture: Getty)It continues to be one of the most perplexing elements of Sarri’s management at Chelsea. Once again, Sarri tasked Jorginho with sitting at the base of his midfield while N’Golo Kante – the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League, and arguably Europe – was pushed into a more advanced role on the right side of a midfield three.Sarri insists he needs a ‘very technical’ player in the central midfield role in his team and does not believe Kante is capable of dictating the side’s rhythm and tempo. But Kante’s ability to snuff out danger and protect his defence feels exponentially more important than Jorginho’s short, safe passing. Even the fact that he lines up on the right, rather than the more vulnerable left – where Marcos Alonso and Eden Hazard are perhaps Chelsea’s worst, least switched-on defenders – is baffling.N’Golo Kante’s combined tackles + interceptions per match in his last five league campaignsLeicester 2015/168.90Caen 2014/157.70Chelsea 2016/176.10Chelsea 2017/185.80Chelsea 2018/193.20 Share Why Chelsea’s season is in danger of unravelling under Maurizio Sarri Advertisementlast_img read more
