(RES Americas) has announced plans to develop two grid-scale energy storage projects, that upon completion, will be the largest, fully commercial energy storage projects in North America.RES Americas will develop and construct the two 19.8-MW energy storage systems located in Illinois. The Elwood Energy Storage Center and the Jake Energy Storage Center will each have the ability to store 7.8-MWh of energy.“The Jake and Elwood Energy Storage Centers represent commercial installations of cutting-edge energy storage technology,” said Victor Babbitt, RES Americas’ Vice President of Energy Storage. “These projects will increase the reliability and quality of ComEd’s grid in these communities which, in turn, may help attract new business that demands a high-quality & reliable electricity supply. We are excited to work with our host communities in the Cities Joliet and West Chicago to make these high-tech projects a reality.”Construction is expected to begin this winter and scheduled for completion by August 2015.BYD America will supply the battery storage modules.  11.11.2014last_img read more

Fighting prejudice

first_imgWhile I accept the views of business minister Pat McFadden in his article ‘Breaking the class ceiling’, I would like to add that the only way in which equality can be achieved in the legal profession is by eradicating racism and discrimination, which are an inherent part of the profession. Whether the profession wants to accept this or not, it is a reality that thousands of ethnic minority lawyers face prejudice from their own profession and are not allowed to achieve their full potential. I believe that the government can only do so much, and it is individuals within the profession who need to change and stop determining merit by comparing skin, hair and eye colour.

APIL calls for damages discount review

first_imgThe Association of Personal Injury Lawyers has alleged that a failure by the justice secretary to review the damages discount rate has led to some claimants being under-compensated by ‘hundreds of thousands of pounds’. Launching a judicial review against the MoJ last week, APIL said the government should lower the discount rate, which is used to calculate the amount deducted from an injured person’s compensation to account for any income they may receive from investing their damages. The discount rate was set at 2.5% in 2001, and is based on yields generated by index-linked government stock. APIL said that these yields have fallen to less than 1% on average over the last three years. It said a rate review promised by justice secretary Kenneth Clarke last year has still not been carried out. APIL president Muiris Lyons said: ‘We are gravely disappointed that the government has failed to carry out its review, as injured people are continuing to be under-compensated – in some cases, by hundreds of thousands of pounds.’ An MoJ spokesman said it is aware of the action.last_img read more

UN launches COVID-19 aid flights to vulnerable developing nations

first_imgAlgeria suspends flights to Italian capital over COVID-19 Somalia confirms 19 new COVID-19 cases Nigeria to suspend international flights due to COVID-19 pandemiccenter_img The U.N. World Food Program on Thursday sent a first plane loaded with medical supplies for developing nations especially vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic, aiming to ramp up the service to 350 flights per month.WFP chose nine airports across the world to take part in the special humanitarian air bridge, which will also feature up to 350 passenger flights per month to transport medical and humanitarian teams from early May.A Boeing 757 cargo flight left Belgium’s Liege Airport on Thursday evening loaded with 16 tonnes of medical supplies, including masks, gloves, medicines and syringes for the West African country of Burkina Faso.The grounding of commercial passenger flights during the pandemic has not only prevented tens of thousands of humanitarian workers from travelling but removed cargo space.“Today (the challenge) to find cargo planes is nightmarish. Prices have gone up by four or five times,” said Amer Daoudi, WFP’s COVID-19 corporate response director. “You also might not get it today or the day after or for a week.”So WFP, which serves as the logistics arm of the U.N. system, has locked in contracts for an extended time to ensure its flights operate and do so at a reasonable cost.“We need capacity to service many of the fragile countries across the globe. This air bridge is going to cover almost 120 countries,” Daoudi said.Daoudi envisages the flights will run for about three to four months, but could be extended. The airlift would be stood down if viable commercial alternatives returned.The transport is available for all humanitarian health workers and cargoes. Thursday’s supplies were destined for the U.N. children’s agency UNICEF and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Burkina Faso.The other hub airports are Accra, Addis Ababa, Guangzhou, Johannesburg, Panama City, Shanghai, Subang and two in Dubai.Liege Airport, heavily focused on cargo, transported 902,480 tonnes of goods in 2019, a new record, and handled fewer than 200,000 passengers. It has a large Fedex/TNT sorting centre.Relatedlast_img read more

New Zero Biased Waveguide Detectors from 26.5 to 110 GHz

first_imgPasternack unveils a brand new collection of high performance zero biased waveguide detectors that exhibit optimum performance in Ka, Q, U, V, E and W frequency bands. These waveguide detectors are widely deployed in various aerospace, defense and commercial wireless applications used in instrumentation, power detection, power monitoring, direct detection receivers, high frequency communications, radar, SATCOM, point-to-point radio, telecom, data links and R&D.Their new collection consists of 6 unique models covering a broad frequency range of 26.5 GHz to 110 GHz. The input ports use popular waveguide sizes ranging from WR-28 to WR-10, while the video output ports utilize SMA female connectors. The detector circuits use high performance GaAs Schottky Barrier Beam lead diodes with extremely low junction capacitance. These designs perform with minimal sensitivity variation resulting in a flat frequency response across the entire waveguide band. These new waveguide detectors are all zero biased, so no external DC bias or mechanical tuning is required. The package designs utilize rugged steel construction and are thermally stable. Integrated waveguide connectors make the outline extremely compact. Performance is guaranteed over 0°C to +50°C. These detectors offer negative output voltage polarity for a variety of applications. Typical voltage sensitivity levels range from -600 mV/mW to -3000 mV/mW.last_img read more

Man United keen on former Leeds United player, he talks about…

first_imgThe 22 year old is a left winger who can also play as a left back and his steady growth is said to be attracting interest both within La Liga and outside.In 2016, Villarreal sent the youngster on loan to CD Lugo, where he quickly became an important player. The loan had been for the entire season, but there was a get-out clause for the January window.Villarreal used this and cut the loan short, then sending Pedraza to Leeds United, again on loan. Had Leeds been promoted to the Premier League there was a clause resulting in a compulsory purchase.That didn’t happen and Pedraza was then sent on loan to Alaves the following season, where he began to really catch the eye.Villarreal got him back and he’s been playing mainly as left back this season. Marca report that several clubs are keen on the player, with those named as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Unnamed clubs in Germany are said to have also been following.There’s no claim of any incoming offers or anything like that, and it would appear the named clubs simply have a general interest.On a potential transfer, Pedraza is quoted explaining he tries to keep himself “isolated from all those issues” and lets his “agents deal with it”. Right now he’s concentrating on giving 100% of himself on the pitch.On his experience at Leeds United, the youngster explained: “You are far away from the family and you have no place to support you. I have nephews and I do not see them grow, for example. It makes you mature a lot. Also being in England, when I had never lived outside of Spain, made me see another football, another culture and other teammates. It was very good for me to grow up.”Any Manchester United interest would surely see Pedraza as a back-up to, and competition for, Luke Shaw.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameChallenge Your Brain With This Must-Play Strategy Game.
