TBEA SunOasis poised to overtake First Solar in global EPC field

first_imgTBEA SunOasis poised to overtake First Solar in global EPC fieldWhile First Solar is focusing primarily on North America, the Chinese group is thriving in its domestic market, which is expected to grow 31% this year. May 15, 2014 Edgar Meza Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share First Solar installed 1.1 GW of PV last year, meeting expectations and solidifying its position as the leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company in the global photovoltaic industry.Yet the Arizona-based company looks set to lose the top spot to China’s TBEA SunOasis in 2014. With up to 1.5 GW of installations in China this year, TBEA has the potential to soar past leading PV integrators according to the IHS report IHS PV EPC and Project Market Tracker. Published by IHS’s Power & Energy service, the report found that First Solar remains centered on North America after a strong year of installing 22% of the non-residential PV capacity in the U.S. and Canada. First Solar’s large-scale projects in the U.S. will make up around 93% of an anticipated 1.3 GW of additions in 2014, IHS adds, pointing out that these projects were acquired in early-stage development and are now being constructed and sold primarily under the U.S. investment tax credit scheme. However, First Solar is building up a global project pipeline through acquisitions and joint ventures in an effort to mitigate the risk of depending on one market, the report adds. The company claims to have pipelines of 1 GW each in Latin America and the Middle East. “After 2015, depending on the evolution of solar support in the U.S., First Solar risks slowed-down growth in terms of PV system integration,” explains senior IHS analyst Josefin Berg. “The development pipeline in emerging countries gives a good start, but will be much more challenging to pursue than the U.S. projects.” TBEA, meanwhile, is thriving on the rapidly growing domestic market, installing 1 GW in 2013 – 10% of China’s non-residential PV additions. In 2014, the power equipment manufacturing group will continue growing its PV systems business, with expected additions to reach as high as 1.5 GW.While focusing on utility-scale opportunities in China, TBEA is also involved in power projects in markets such as Pakistan, where it has announced the construction of a 100 MW PV plant in 2014 and 2015. “TBEA’s global reach as a power equipment provider opens up possibilities for EPC contracts in new PV markets,” Berg adds. “Yet, as the domestic market will grow by 31% this year, TBEA is set to keep the systems business growth focused on China.” Global PV project pipeline at 140 GW and growing According to the IHS Global PV Project Database, which consists of nearly 30,000 projects, the global PV pipeline has now reached 140 GW — an increase of 5 GW since February. Of those 140 GW, 21 GW are either under construction or have signed power purchase agreements (PPA). The remainder of projects are at various levels of planning.“It is obvious that a large chunk of these pipeline projects will never be built,” explains Berg. “Developers have to compete for PPAs, grid access, permits, and, not least, financing. What is important is that we can spot in which countries that PV deployment can take off quickly given the right conditions.”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.

UK to add 1.3 GW utility-scale solar in Q1 2015, says IHS

first_imgUK to add 1.3 GW utility-scale solar in Q1 2015, says IHSThe analysts expect the few months before the Renewable Obligation Certificates scheme ends will drive a bumper quarter for solar installations in the U.K. November 5, 2014 Ian Clover Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share The first three months of next year will see record-breaking levels of utility-scale solar PV installations in the U.K. as developers rush to complete projects before April 1, 2015, according to IHS. From that date, ground-mount solar PV systems larger than 5 MW will no longer be eligible to receive subsidy under the Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROC) scheme, prompting a rush that will see as much as 1.3 GW of utility-scale solar added. Taking Q4 of this year and Q1 of 2015 combined, almost 1.8 GW of large-scale solar PV capacity will be added in the U.K. over these six months – a massive increase on an already-bumper year for U.K. solar. Although IHS has revised its forecast for 2014 down from 3.2 GW to 2.8 GW, that figure still represents the largest in Europe. However, this pre-ROC withdrawal rush is creating a bottleneck that will leave around one-in-five proposed solar developments disappointed. According to IHS, some 20% of the 6.2 GW of solar projects in the pipeline will not be permitted to proceed, largely because a number of local authorities in the U.K. have begun to refuse permit applications due to the current surge. After April 1 next year, large-scale solar PV installations will instead have to compete with onshore wind projects for a pot of the subsidy money allocated in the new Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme, which critics argue is tilted in favor of alternative energy sources. Because of these predicted difficulties in obtaining subsidy for large-scale solar installations, IHS expects many developers to shift focus instead to sub-5 MW ground-mount projects – which will still be eligible for the ROCs – and commercial rooftop developments. Companies such as Lightsource Renewable Energy have already begun making large strides in the commercial rooftop sector, and the potential to offer new financing models to customers and building owners suggests that the U.K. solar industry can evolve satisfactorily along these lines. Whether U.K. solar will still lead Europe at the end of 2015 remains to be seen. A looming general election in May 2015 could dramatically alter the solar landscape in favor, or against, solar PV – prompting very few analysts to dare to predict what might happen in the latter half 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.

Kennedy Boulevard, according to Police Capt. William Lyons.Upon arrival at the intersection of 60th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, authorities approached four men: Jalil Simpson, of Newark, as well as Corey Bell, Amos Crudup and Stayon Cambridge – all of East Orange.Simpson and Bell said they posted 12 signs, but were unknowingly on the North Bergen side of the street. Meanwhile, Crudup and Cambridge were posting signs on the West New York side, officials said.Crudup voluntarily said the SUV he was driving was a municipal vehicle. As a result, North Bergen Desk Sgt. Nick Galliano contacted the City of Newark and spoke to their police  department regarding the SUV.Additionally, the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office was contacted in regard to the incident, police said.Simpson and Bell were issued summons for violating the North Bergen sign ordinance violation and Simpson was arrested for an active warrant out of Irvington, authorities said.Simpson told police that he was being paid by Mayor Felix Roque’s campaign manager, Pablo Fonseca, to hang the signs, officials said.Also according to police, the other three men were released and Crudup voluntarily offered to remove the signs placed on the North Bergen side of the street.According to this 2014 report by The Star-Ledger, Crudup and Fonseca have known each other since 1997.Roque arrived on the scene shortly after the traffic stop occurred, but he stayed on the West New York side of the street and did not interfere with the investigation, authorities said.Commissioner Cosmo Cirillo, who is one of several officials backing the Column A ticket against Roque’s Column B, expressed disappointment regarding the situation.“Using municipal government vehicles from Newark to campaign here in West New York is absolutely outrageous and Mayor Roque should be ashamed of himself for allowing this. We are calling for a full investigation into this blatant misuse of taxpayer resources for political purposes,” Cirillo said in a statement.“This is just another reason why it’s so important for West New York to vote for the Column A team today: to stop this kind of corruption.”The Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office and the Newark Police Department are already investigating the incident, according to Lyons.Fonseca did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

first_imgThe Italian election was an “earthquake” for Europe, former Donald Trump chief strategist Steve Bannon said Monday.“This is just a populist victory and should send a massive signal to the permanent political class in Rome and more importantly to the permanent political class in Brussels that people want change,” he said in an interview with Swiss newspaper Weltwoche.Bannon, who has been in Italy since Thursday to observe the election, compared the success of the far-right League to Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election. “They got 20 percent of the votes in Tuscany, which is traditionally a turf of the left, or the center left: This is equivalent to Wisconsin going to Trump,” he said. Bannon, who had previously suggested he supported Matteo Salvini, head of the League, said he believed a coalition between the League and the 5Star Movement could work for Italy. “If they were to come together or you see them coming together with other populist parties, it really gives you a bigger mandate to govern,” he said. He argued that the Italian election would have important implications for the European Union. “Nobody has been more engaged in the European project than the political leaders in Italy. Yesterday, what you had was a total rejection by the Italian voters, and I think that was the earthquake, the tremor is going to continue. This shift of tectonic plates is going to continue over the next couple of weeks or months as they put together a government.” Also On POLITICO Opinion Italy, Europe’s breakaway province By Stefano Stefanini Italy chooses, Brussels worries By Maïa de La Baumelast_img read more

Ryan Blaney emerges for win in first Bank of America Roval 400 at Charlotte

first_imgCONCORD, N.C. – In a race that was as wild as advertised in the closing laps, Ryan Blaney sped past crashing Jimmie Johnson and Martin Truex Jr. in the final corner to win Sunday’s inaugural Bank of America Roval 400 at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course.With his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory of the season and the second of his career, Blaney advanced to Round of 12 in the NASCAR Playoffs.RELATED: Full results | Stage 1 results | Stage 2 results SHOP: Blaney gearJohnson wasn’t as lucky. The seven-time series champion was pressuring Truex on the final lap and powered his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 to the inside of Truex’s No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota Camry off the banking of Turn 15 coming into the frontstretch chicane.Johnson spun and collected Truex as he slid across the asphalt between Turns 16 and 17, knocking Truex’s Toyota toward the outside wall in the tri-oval. Blaney drove his No. 12 Team Penske Ford Fusion between the two wrecked cars and crossed the finish line .792 seconds ahead of runner-up Jamie McMurray. Because he had blown the chicane, Johnson stopped on the frontstretch as mandated by NASCAR before continuing across the finish line. He finished eighth and ended the event tied for 11th in the playoff standings with Aric Almirola and Kyle Larson, who completed the final lap in a car that had been all but destroyed in a Turn 1 wreck after a restart on Lap 104 of 109. MORE: Kes wrecks, takes Larson with him | Dillon wrecks out, ends playoff hopesAlmirola and Larson got the final two berths into the Round of 12 on a tiebreaker based on the best finish in the current round. Larson was second at Las Vegas, and Almirola took fifth place at Richmond. Johnson’s best result was the eighth at Charlotte, leaving him on the outside with Austin Dillon, Denny Hamlin and Erik Jones, who also were eliminated from the Monster Energy Series Playoffs in Sunday’s cutoff race. RELATED: Playoff standings“Tough weekend, just kind of avoided some stuff,” Blaney said after he climbed from his car. “You hate to see two guys get into it there and take out two of the best cars all day. But that’s racing sometimes.“We were just at the right spot at the right time. It’s cool to be in Victory Lane and move on to the next round.”Truex, who led into the final chicane, was understandably disappointed with his 14th-place result.“Last corner, desperation behind us, that’s what you get,” said Truex, a four-time winner this season. “I gave him (Johnson) the inside lane, and he had the run through (NASCAR Turn 4), and I was real tight down there. I let him have the inside going down inside coming out of 4 there to the chicane.“He just over-drove it and was never going to make it and he used me as brakes and turned us both around. It sucks. We could have raced side-by-side off the last corner for a win, and that would have been cool. The fans would have been digging it, but instead we finished 14th and he’s locked out of the playoffs. I guess that’s what he gets.”Joining Blaney, Larson and Almirola in Round of 12 of the Playoffs are Brad Keselowski (Las Vegas winner), Kyle Busch (Richmond winner), Truex (locked in after Richmond) and Kevin Harvick (who qualified for the next round when he took the green flag on Sunday).Advancing on points were pole winner Kurt Busch, Joey Logano, Chase Elliott, Clint Bowyer and Alex Bowman. Bowyer ran third on Sunday, followed by Bowman, Kurt Busch, Elliott and AJ Allmendinger.last_img read more
