Market driver: rising investments in renewable energy

A positive consequence of reduced carbon emissions is the growth in the clean energy technology. The transition from fossil fuels and conventional sources of energy to renewable sources such as wind and solar is the key to achieve social, economic, and environmental development. In 2016, it was estimated that the global investments in renewable energy were over USD 300 billion. But, the investment was lower than 2015 due to the reduced cost of components required for the installation of renewable systems. With the advances in renewable technology, the overall capital expenditure required per MW of power generation reduces.

Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

Market trend: adoption of hybrid street lighting system

Street lighting is provided by local power utilities, and a considerable amount of money is being spent to light up streets and public places to ensure visibility during the night and keep pedestrians safe. This has been leading to increased energy bills for the local municipalities, which use off-grid systems. A standalone renewable system from a single source of renewable is insufficient because of the intermittent nature of the energy source.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for power research, “To harness renewable power from the locally available resources, renewable sources are being used with fossil fuel generators or other renewables to provide stable, reliable, and consistent power. Solar-wind hybrid streetlight is a small scale, intelligent, and off-grid LED street light system. In a solar-wind street light, the battery would be charged by solar during the day to provide power during the night, and the wind power will charge the battery during the night when the solar energy is not present.”

Market challenge: competition from alternate sources of energy

Wind energy has been facing competition from other sources of energy such as fossil fuels, solar, and hydropower. Though the installation of wind energy systems costs lesser than solar PV systems, the competition in emerging markets such as Chile and Mexico is high. Furthermore, in windy places such as Argentina, the prices of solar PV have reduced significantly enough to compete with wind energy prices.

India Rating and Research (Ind-Ra) has maintained a negative outlook on the thermal power sector...

FREETOWN, Sierra Leone, January 27, 2018/APO Group/ --

The Government of Sierra Leone under the leadership of His Excellency, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma has over the years been mobilizing financial resources to finance water projects in the rural areas of the country from budgetary allocations and grants from its traditional development partners such as World Bank and African Development Bank (AfDB).

The Government has also through the Sierra Leone Water Company (SALWACO) continued to provide technical as well as financial support alongside its development partners for the development of rural water supply schemes and SALWACO is being evidently strengthened to efficiently perform its current responsibilities.

However, the late Sierra Leone Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Architect Siray Alpha Timbo of blessed memory through his shrewd diplomacy caused a cooperation agreement between the Emirates Red Crescent Authority in the UAE and the Ministry of Water Resources in Sierra Leone concerning the digging of artesian wells and ground wells in the rural areas of Sierra Leone.

The UAE Red Crescent Authority is a voluntary humanitarian body that plays a supporting role for official authorities in times of peace and war. It was founded on January 31, 1983 and received international recognition for joining the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in 1986.

Although Ambassador Timbo has died, the Chargé d' Affaires in the Sierra Leone Mission in the UAE, Mr. Allieu Badarr Mansaray and Sierra Leone’s Consul General in Dubai, Mr. Bahige Annan are working closely with development partners, including the Emirates Red Crescent Authority to see the successful implementation of all the projects the late Sierra Leone’s top diplomat in the Emirates initiated.

In an interview with the Director General of SALWACO, Mr. Samuel Bangura said negotiations for the agreement started in 2011 and that the Government of Sierra Leone signed the financial agreement sometime last year. He disclosed that April to July 2017 would have been the implementation period but the sudden death of Ambassador Siray Timbo caused the project to be put on hold. The Director General of SALWACO further disclosed that the project implementation started in December last year but there were some administrative delays, noting that they only concluded the process of arranging the funding in December 2017.

Mr. Bangura reiterated that the Government of Sierra Leone signed the agreement in 2016 with the hope of accessing the funding as early as possible for SALWACO to start the project implementation but it could not, adding that funding has been concluded and the launch of the project took place in some Northern rural towns of Sierra Leone on 20th – 21st January, 2018.

Project Description

With the Ministry of Water Resources in Sierra Leone going into an agreement with non-traditional donors in the private sector in the UAE, it could be seen as a tremendous effort by the Government of Sierra Leone to tap new sources of funding to propel the country to development in every sector. Thanks to the efforts of Ambassador Siray Timbo of blessed memory for breaking a new ground to ensure that Sierra Leone improves access to reliable water supply services for the rural population.

The project description of the cooperation agreement between Emirates Red Crescent Authority and the Ministry of Water Resources concerning the digging of artesian wells and ground wells in the rural areas is as follows:-

First: Both parties agreed that the Second Party shall implement a project serving water resources in order to secure and provide drinking water in the rural areas in the Republic of Sierra Leone in accordance with the specifications, bills of quantities and prices set out in the appendix of the Agreement. The project is divided into two parts in accordance with the following values and details:

1. Digging (49) artesian wells including the pumps, tanks and solar energy system with a total cost of US$ 1,816,777 and US$ 37,077 per well.

2. Digging (63) ground wells with manual pumps and with a total cost of US$ 617,400 and US$ 7,800 per well.

Purpose of the Agreement

The purpose of this agreement is to provide a financial donation (grant) by the First Party to dig artesian and ground wells, manage the project and raise awareness among the community in the Republic of Sierra Leone in order to contribute to improving the water services provided by the Second Party as well as secure and provide drinking water in the rural areas agreed upon by both parties with a total value not exceeding US$ 2,734,173 (Two Million Seven Hundred and Thirty-four Thousand, One Hundred and Seventy-three United States Dollars) or what is equivalent in UAE Dirham including all the works of digging, extension, pipes, pumps and all other necessary supplies in addition to administrative fees, the enlistments of contractors and fees of consultation, if any, as this amount represents the maximum amount to implement the whole project.

According to the SALWACO Director General, “We hope to implement the project between now and July should the funding be consistent.” He disclosed that 25% of the amount has been released and that the project would be launched in rural villages far away from the capital Freetown.

The Director General explained the new technology of using boreholes with pumps, tanks and solar energy system which he said was introduced by SALWACO. He further explained the efficiency and effectiveness of the system for small rural settlements. Mr. Samuel Bangura disclosed that about 111,000 people will benefit from the project when implemented.

Over the years under the Ernest Bai Koroma-led APC Government, SALWACO has undergone serious transformation that has enabled the institution to efficiently perform its current responsibilities and rural water supply services. It has implemented several water projects in the rural areas funded by the Government of Sierra Leone and its development partners worth hundreds of millions of United State Dollars.

“Under Samuel Bangura as Director General, he has rapidly transformed the company from a dead to a more proactive institution by providing safe water for people in rural areas largely due to the young, intelligent and dedicated staff who are determined to implement the President’s dream of providing safe pipe-borne water to rural areas,” Sierra Express Media, an online Sierra Leone newspaper recently wrote.

On the telephone line from the Emirati financial capital, Dubai, Sierra Leone’s Consul General, Bahige Annan says the support given by the UAE Red Crescent Authority is very timely and will help provide clean drinking water to thousands of people living in areas with scarce sources of clean water and the project will also help prevent deaths caused by diseases related to unsafe drinking water.

He commended the UAE Government for always providing aid for all. The pivotal role always played by the UAE in the humanitarian field, Mr. Annan added, only reflects the key noble values of the UAE people under the leadership of their leader, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

“The UAE is the capital of giving, and that the people of the UAE are always keen on extending a helping hand to the needy,” Mr. Annan concluded.

Given the Government of Sierra Leone’s rural water supply-specific policy objectives with the broad objective to improve health and alleviate poverty of the rural population through improved access to adequate safe drinking water, it is hoped that SALWACO will live up to the task of successfully and efficiently carrying out its obligations in the project implementation before the end of the second quarter of this year.

Solar jobs and wealth creation in Europe are set to increase to nearly 175,000 full time jobs and 9,500M value added by 2021, according to a new EY report. The EY report also shows that an increase in ambition for the European Union 2030 renewable energy target from 27% to 35% will result in more than 120,000 new solar jobs alone.

Dominique Ristori, Director-General, European Commission, DG Energy, speaking at the launch event of the report, said: "We want to see solar and clean energy well-developed in Europe, more solar jobs and generated value is key to moving towards a sustainable lowcarbon economy."

MEP Butikofer commented "Crucially in the short term, removing solar trade measures currently enforced by DG Trade in the European Commission could give a welcome boost to the European solar industry including new jobs."

MEP Marijana Petir, stated "This surge is only possible if countries increase their solar deployment rate in line with policy requirements to 2020. With the right policies in place this growth could be even greater by 2030. Member States should have the necessary flexibility to boost renewable energy that is available on their territory. With this approach Member states could develop incentives to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions and to create new jobs in the most efficient way."
"Our calculations show that Spain will have the highest number of new jobs, with an expected growth of 471% from 2016 to 2021, followed by Greece (+403%), and Poland (+381%)" said EY on their findings for the report.

Christian Westermeier, President of SolarPower Europe said: "The more solar installed the more jobs and economic growth we will see in Europe. We need to remove all barriers to solar starting with withdrawing the trade measures currently in place on solar panels and cells accompanied by a predictable regulatory environment for PV in Europe. EY found that the average PV system price in Europe has decreased by 23% in 2016, compared to 2014, but we know that the price could be even lower if we ended the artificially high tariffs on solar products, which would boost jobs and economic activity in the countries of the EU."

The trade associations representing key players in Europe's energy transition urge policy makers to take a step-wise approach towards the market integration of small-scale renewable and high efficiency cogeneration installations.

Whilst the European institutions are negotiating the recast of the Electricity Market Design Regulation, the signatories of the declaration launch today the "Small Is Beautiful" campaign, aiming at highlighting the benefits of small-scale, clean and locally owned installations to move progressively towards a decentralised energy system.

James Watson, CEO of SolarPower Europe said: "Small installations empower territories, small businesses, and consumers. When it comes to solar, they are also the biggest job providers. We must reflect on the energy transition we want to see emerging in Europe."

These benefits are, however, threatened by the European Parliament's current proposal requiring all power generators to be "balancing responsible" and the blanket removal of priority dispatch.

Small-scale renewable and high efficiency cogeneration installations are generally run by private consumers, households, communities, farmers, cooperatives or SMEs and benefit the local economy.However, European power markets are mostly not yet « fit » for small installations. Removing the balancing responsibility exemptions and priority dispatch will result in disproportionate costs and technical and administrative burdens.

"Keeping the priority dispatch and access regimes for small installations as proposed by the European Commission is fundamental for empowering energy consumers and boosting investments in local sustainable and efficient energy solutions", indicated Hans Korteweg, Managing Director of COGEN Europe.
Rémi Gruet, CEO of Ocean Energy Europe, commented "To accelerate the energy transition, investor risk needs to be reduced. Exemptions to balancing responsibility and maintaining priority dispatch go a long way in achieving this. All the more so for demonstration projects for innovative technologies: the lower the risk, the faster they can be taken to market".

Rather than encouraging the participation of consumers or SMEs in the energy transition, the current proposals on the table would act as a disincentive.
Signatories of the declaration urge policy makers to maintain priority dispatch and the exemption of balancing responsibilities for small scale renewable and highly efficient cogeneration installations. A balanced approach is key to enable the advent of an increasingly distributed energy system, empowering energy consumers and contributing to the economic and social dynamism of local communities and small businesses.

महाराष्ट्र के राज्यपाल श्रीमान सी विद्यासागर राव जी, मुख्यमंत्री श्री देवेंद्र फडणवीस, देश-विदेश से आए उद्यमीगण और अन्य महानुभाव। Magnetic Maharashtra में आप सभी का स्वागत है।

 

समर्द्ध अणि सम्पन्न महाराष्ट्राचा निर्मिती करता होणारा मेग्नेटिक महाराष्ट्राला माझा खुप - खुप शुभेच्छा।

 

बंधू भगिनीनो सर्वाना माझा नमस्कार।

 

मुझे साइंस की बारीकियों का तो बहुत ज्ञान नहीं है लेकिन मुझे बताया गया है कि मेग्नेटिक फील्ड में Direction और Magnitude, दोनों का ही inclusion होता है।

 

यहां आने से पहले मैं नवी मुंबई एयरपोर्ट और JNPT  के कार्यक्रमों में था। आज के ये दो कार्यक्रम महाराष्ट्र की मेग्नेटिक फील्ड के Direction और Magnitude, दोनों ही की झलक हैं। वैसे ये भी Fact है कि आप जितना ज्यादा सेंटर के पास होते हैं, Magnetic Lines की ताकत भी उतनी ही महसूस होती है।

 

आज यहां इस आयोजन में आपका ये उत्साह, आपका ये जोश, ये पूरा charged atmosphere इस बात का सबूत है कि Magnetic Maharashtra की Magnetic Lines कितनी शक्तिशाली हैं।

 

साथियों, ये आयोजन cooperative competitive federalism का बेहतरीन उदाहरण है।

 

 आज देश के सभी राज्यों में आपस में एक कम्पटीशन हो रही है, स्पर्धा हो रही है।

 

इंफ्रास्ट्रक्चर, एग्रीकल्चर, टेक्सटाइल, हेल्थकेयर, एजूकेशन, सोलर एनर्जी, ऐसे तमाम अलग-अलग क्षेत्रों में निवेश आकर्षित करने के लिए इस प्रकार के Events का आयोजन देश के अलग अलग राज्यों में हो रहा है।

राज्य अपनी-अपनी जरूरतों के हिसाब से किस क्षेत्र में कहां निवेश होना है, इस पर ध्यान केंद्रित कर रहे हैं।

 

हाल ही में मुझे असम में "Advantage Assam" Investors Summit में हिस्सा लेने का अवसर मिला था। कुछ वर्ष पहले तक, कोई सोच भी नहीं सकता था कि North East में निवेश को लेकर इतनी अच्छी ब्रांडिंग हो सकती है।

 

झारखंड,  मध्य प्रदेश, अनेक राज्यों में इस तरह के आयोजन हो रहे हैं। गुजरात से जो सिलसिला शुरू हुआ, उसका प्रभाव  आज पूरे देश में देखने को मिल रहा है।

 

साथियों, मैं महाराष्ट्र सरकार को इस आयोजन के लिए बहुत-बहुत बधाई देता हूं।  पिछले तीन साल में महाराष्ट्र सरकार ने Investment का माहौल मजबूत करने के लिए अभूतपूर्व कदम उठाए हैं। राज्य सरकार की निरंतर कोशिशों ने वर्ल्ड बैंक की Ease of Doing Business की रैकिंग में रिकॉर्ड बदलाव लाने में बहुत बड़ी मदद की है।  फडणवीस सरकार के Reforms ने महाराष्ट्र को Transform करने में बहुत बड़ी भूमिका निभाई है।

Ease of Doing Business के 10 में से 9 पैरामीटर्स, जैसे Ease of Getting Electricity, Ease of Paying Taxes, इन सब चीज़ों  में improvement होना अपने आप में बहुत बड़ा Noticeable factor है।

 

इतने व्यापक स्तर पर बदलाव तब आते हैं जब Policy Reform के माध्यम से Governance में एक नया Work Culture विकसित किया जाता है। जब परियोजना के सामने रही दिक्कतों को सुलझाने के लिए प्रक्रियाओं की डी-बौटल-नेकिंग की जाती है, जब inter- departmental co-ooperation बढ़ाया जाता है,

जब Time Limit में फैसले लिए जाते हैं।

 

जिस Magnetic Field की मैं पहले बात कर रहा था, वो ऐसे ही Create होती है। इसका प्रभाव निवेश पर नजर आता है, राज्य के विकास में नजर आता है। और यही वजह है कि पिछले साल महाराष्ट्र Infrastructure Projects में Total Expenditure में देश के हर राज्य से आगे था। फ्रॉस्ट and सुलेवोन्स  की रेंकिंग में महाराष्ट्र को Overall Development में देश का नंबर एक राज्य बताया गया था। वर्ष 2016-17 में देश में जितना भी Foreign Direct Investment आया है, उसका करीब करीब 51 प्रतिशत महाराष्ट्र में निवेश किया गया है। इसी तरह जब यहां फरवरी 2016 में Make in India Week मनाया गया, तो इंडस्ट्री सेगमेंट में लगभग 4 लाख करोड़ रुपए के समझौते हुए। इनमें से 2 लाख करोड़ रुपए के Investment Projects पर काम भी शुरू हो चुका है।

 

आज महाराष्ट्र में चल रहे इंफ्रास्ट्रक्टर प्रोजेक्ट्स पूरी दुनिया का ध्यान खींच रहे हैं। दिल्ली-मुंबई इंडस्ट्रियल कॉरिडोर प्रोजेक्ट को पूरी दुनिया के 100 Most Innovative Project में से एक गिना गया है। नवी मुंबई एयरपोर्ट का निर्माण, मुंबई ट्रांस हार्बर लिंक का निर्माण, आने वाले दिनों में इस क्षेत्र के करोड़ों लोगों के जीवन में बहुत बड़ा बदलाव उससे आने वाला है। इसके अलावा मुंबई, नवी मुंबई, पुणे, नागपुर में तैयार होने वाले करीब-करीब 350 किलोमीटर का मेट्रो नेटवर्क भी यहां पर विकास और निवेश, दोनों की नई संभावनाएं लेकर रहा है 

 

साथियों, एक विशेष प्रोजेक्ट जिसकी मैं चर्चा करना चाहूंगा, वो है महाराष्ट्र समृद्धि कॉरिडोर। ये प्रोजेक्ट महाराष्ट्र के ग्रामीण इलाकों को, यहां के Agriculture Sector, Agro-Based Industries को विकास की नई ऊँचाई पर ले जाने की क्षमता रखता है। महाराष्ट्र में 700 किलोमीटर लंबे Super Comunication Expressway का निर्माण, Expressway के किनारे स्मार्ट सिटी की तरह 24 नए Nodes का विकास, राज्य के कम से कम 20 से 25 लाख लोगों के लिए रोजगार के नए अवसर इसके अंदर निहित है।

 

मुझे खुशी है कि अब महाराष्ट्र सरकार ने राज्य को देश का पहला Trillion Dollar Economy वाला राज्य बनाने का लक्ष्य तय किया है। शिवाजी महाराज की भूमि पर कोई भी लक्ष्य प्राप्त करना कठिन नहीं होता है। और मुझे उम्मीद है कि उनके आशीर्वाद से महाराष्ट्र सरकार इस लक्ष्य को भी प्राप्त करेगी और ये राज्य देश का पहला Trillion Dollar Economy वाला राज्य बनेगा।

 

साथियों, मैं मानता हूं कि देश का विकास तभी संभव है, जब राज्यों का भी विकास हो। महाराष्ट्र का विकास भारत के बढ़ते हुए सामर्थ्य का प्रतीक है कि हम इस तरह के बड़े लक्ष्य तय कर पा रहे हैं। ये देश में बदली हुई सोच, बदले हुए हालात का जीता-जागता उदाहरण है।

 

मुझे याद है कुछ साल पहले जब भारत पहली बार Trillion Dollar Economy क्लब में आया था तो कितनी बड़ी-बड़ी हेडलाइन बनी थी। लेकिन इसके बाद के कुछ वर्ष घोटालों की भेंट चढ़ गए। देश में तब एक अलग ही तरह का वातावरण बन गया था। तब Trillion Dollar क्लब की नहीं, Fragile Five की बात हुआ करती थी।

 

पिछले तीन साढ़े तीन वर्षो में सरकार के निरंतर प्रयास का परिणाम है कि अब  Five Trillion Dollar क्लब की बात होने लगी है। दुनिया की बड़ी-बड़ी एजेंसियां कह रही हैं कि अगले कुछ वर्षों में भारत Five Trillion Dollar क्लब में शामिल हो जाएगा।

 

साथियों, ये विश्वास ऐसे ही नहीं आया है। इसके पीछे People friendly, Development friendly और Investment friendly माहौल बनाने का एक विजन है, उसके पीछे प्रयास है। छोटे-छोटे issues को पकड़कर, छोटी-छोटी चुनौतियों को समझते हुए, हम समस्याओं को सुलझा रहे हैं। Governance को हम उस स्तर पर ले गए हैं, जिसमें सरकार का दखल कम से कम हो।

 

साथियों, देश प्रगति तब करता है जब Holistic Vision हो। जब Vision Inclusive हो और Comprehnsive हो। आज हम उस दिशा में आगे बढे हैं जहां State policy driven है, Governace performance driven है, Government accountable है, Democracy participative है। हम न्यू इंडिया के निर्माण के लिए देश में एक Transparent Ecosystem बना रहे हैं जो सरकारी तंत्र पर कम से कम आश्रित हो। इसके लिए नियमों को आसान बनाया जा रहा है, प्रक्रियाओं को आसान बनाया जा रहा है, जहां कानून बदलने की आवश्यकता है, वहां कानून बदले जा रहे हैं। जहां कानून समाप्त करने की आवश्यकता है, वहां कानून समाप्त किए जा रहे हैं।

 

यहां पर उपस्थित आप में से कुछ को जरूर ये जानकारी होगी कि पिछले तीन वर्ष में भारत सरकार ने 1400 से ज्यादा कानून खत्म कर दिए हैं जो नए कानून बनाए भी जा रहे हैं, उसमें भी इस बात का ध्यान रखा जा रहा है कि वो चीजें और complicate ना करें बल्कि वो simplify करें। सरकारी प्रक्रियाओं के साथ Human to Human Interface जितना कम हो सकता है, वो हम कर रहे हैं।  चाहे Labour Laws की बात हो,  Tax Compliance की बात हो, हम technology का इस्तेमाल करते हुए सारे Process Easy बना रहे हैं।

 

Friends, We believe, Potential + Policy + Planning + Performance leads to Progress.

 

इसी सोच का नतीजा है कि आज National Highways बनाने की speed, नई रेल लाइनों के निर्माण की स्पीड, रेल लाइनों के electrification की स्पीड, सरकार द्वारा घर बनाने की स्पीड, Ports पर माल ढुलाई की स्पीड, Solar Power में कपैसिटी addition की स्पीड, पहले के मुकाबले, मैं और भी पचास चीज़ें बता सकता हूँ, पहले के मुकाबले ये दो गुना, तीन गुना हो चुकी है।

 

साथियों, हमने एक ओर Optimum Utilization of Resources सुनिश्चित किया है, दूसरी ओर  Resource आधारित Development Policies की ओर आगे बढ़े है, और Development Policies आधारित बजट पर जोर दे रहे हैं। पिछले तीन-चार साल में हमारी सरकार ने जो बजट में Reform किया है, बजट से जुड़ी जिस सोच को बदला है, वो पूरे देश में एक नया work culture ही नहीं develop कर रहा, बल्कि सामाजिक-आर्थिक जीवन को भी Transform कर रहा है।

 

रेल बजट, अब बजट का हिस्सा बन गया है। बजट में पहले Plan, Non-Plan की जो Artificial दीवार थी, वो हमने खत्म कर दी है। बजट का समय भी बदलकर अब एक महीना पहले हो गया है। इन सारे फैसलों की वजह से अब बजट में आवंटित राशि विभागों के पास समय से पहले पहुंच जाती है, योजनाओं पर काम करने के लिए विभागों को अब ज्यादा समय मिल रहा है। मॉनसून की वजह से काम की जो गति धीमी हो जाती थी, उसका प्रभाव भी काफी हद तक अब खत्म हो गया है।

 

सरकार ने जो structural changes किए हैं, Policy Interventions किए हैं, उसका लाभ देश के किसानों को, गरीबों, दलितों-पिछड़ों को और समाज के वंचित तबकों तक पहुंचे, ये साल दर साल हमारे हर बजट द्वारा सुनिश्चित किया गया है, पुनर्स्थापित किया गया है।

Friends, Our Budget is not limited to outlay, our Budget is not limited to only output, focuse of our Budget is on out-comes. हम 2022 तक Housing for All, 2019 के अंत तक  Power for All , इन सारे क्षेत्रों पर पहले से ही काम कर रहे हैं।

इस वर्ष के बजट में Clean Fuel for All, Health for All, इन दो concepts पर काम और तेज किया गया है। हमने उज्ज्वला योजना के तहत गरीब परिवारो को मुफ्त गैस कनेक्शन देने का लक्ष्य 5 करोड़ परिवार से बढ़ाकर 8 करोड़ परिवार कर दिया है। भारत में total परिवारों की संख्‍या करीब-करीब 25 करोड़ है। उसमें से 8 करोड़ परिवार।

ये सिर्फ कुछ  योजनाएं भर नहीं हैं बल्कि ये दिखाती हैं कि हम किस दिशा की तरफ बढ़ रहे हैं। देश के गरीब से गरीब व्यक्ति के सामाजिक - आर्थिक कल्याण, उसके Social और Financial Inclusion की यह फिलॉसफी हमारे बजट का एक आधारभूत मान्‍यता के रूप में आप अनुभव करते होंगे।  

जनधन योजना, स्वच्छ भारत मिशन, Skill India, Digital India, मुद्रा योजना, स्टैंड अप इंडिया, स्टार्ट अप इंडिया, जैसी अनेक अनगिनत योजनाएं देश के गरीबों को, निम्‍न–मध्‍यम, मध्‍यम वर्ग को, नौजवानों को, महिलाओं को सशक्त कर रही हैं।

साथियों, हमने Health Care से जुड़े जिस बड़े initiative का ऐलान किया है, वो दुनिया भर का ध्यान अपनी ओर खींच रहा है। बड़े-बड़े कॉरपोरेट हाउसेस के लोग यहां हैं, उनका मैनेजमेंट यहां बैठे हुए हैं। आपको पता होगा कि प्राइवेट कंपनियों में किस सैलरी स्लैब तक उस व्यक्ति को पूरे परिवार के लिए 5 लाख रुपए तक का हेल्थ एश्योरेंस मिलता है। आमतौर पर 60-70 हजार से लेकर एक-डेढ़ लाख रुपए की कमाई वाले व्यक्ति को इस ब्रेकेट स्‍थान मिलता है।  

अब ये सरकार ऐसी है कि जिसने हमारी सरकार आयुष्मान भारत योजना के तहत साल भर में एक परिवार को 5 लाख रुपए तक का हेल्थ एश्योरेंस देश के गरीब से गरीब व्यक्ति को देने का निर्णय किया हुआ है। और करीब-करीब 10 करोड़ परिवार, यानी कि 50 करोड़ से अधिक लोगों को इसका लाभ मिलने वाला है।  ये योजना गंभीर बीमारियों की वजह से लोगों को गंभीर आर्थिक संकट की दोहरी मार से भी बचाएगी।·आयुष्मान भारत योजना के तहत ही हमने देश की बड़ी पंचायतों में डेढ़ लाख wellness centres खोलने का भी तय किया है।आप सोच सकते हैं कि ये फैसले देश के Health Care system को किस तरह बदल डालेंगे। ये योजना देश में affordable healthcare institutions, नए doctors, नए पैरा-मेडिकल स्टाफ, Health Care से जुड़े हर सेक्टर के लिए एक बहुत महत्वपूर्ण साबित होगी।

देश में Education Infrastructure को मजबूत करने के लिए भी हमने एक नया Initiative शुरू किया है। इसके तहत हमारी सरकार अगले चार साल में देश के Education System को सुधारने के लिए एक लाख करोड़ रुपए की योजना खर्च करने की बना करके आगे बढ़ रही है।

इसी तरह देश के नौजवानों में Self Employment औऱ विशेषकर MSME सेक्टर में काम कर रहे उद्यमियों को बढ़ावा देने के लिए हम मुद्रा योजना का दायरा बढ़ा रहे हैं। जब से ये योजना शुरू हुई है, तब से लेकर अब तक लगभग साढ़े दस करोड़ लोन हमारे यहां स्वीकृत किए गए  हैं। लोगों को बिना गारंटी अब तक 4 लाख 60 हजार करोड़ रुपए का कर्ज दिया जा चुका है। इस वर्ष के बजट में भी हमने 3 लाख करोड़ रुपए का मुद्रा लोन देना इसका निर्णय किया है।

ऐसे अलग-अलग मिशन, देश के गरीब, देश के मध्यम वर्ग में Ease of living को बढ़ावा दे रहे हैं। ये Ease of living जितनी बढ़ेगी, उतने ही लोग empower भी होंगे। जितना लोग empower होंगे, उतना ही हमारा social और economic development तेज होगा।

जैसे मैं देश के Rural सेक्टर की बात करूं तो इस साल के बजट में हमने Agriculture, Rural Infrastructure के विकास के लिए 14 लाख करोड़ रुपए से ज्यादा खर्च करना तय किया है। ये राशि farming activities पर तो खर्च होगी ही, इससे गांवों में 3 लाख किलोमीटर से ज्यादा सड़कें बनेंगी, 51 लाख नए घर बनेंगे, लगभग दो करोड़ नए Toilets बनाए जाएंगे, पौने दो करोड़ गरीब घरों में बिजली कनेक्शन दिया जाएगा।

ये सारे प्रयास agriculture growth तो बढ़ाएंगे ही, Rural सेक्टर में employment की लाखों संभावनाएं भी पैदा करेंगे। इस साल हमने देश के इंफ्रास्ट्रक्टर पर खर्च का बजट भी एक लाख करोड़ रुपए से ज्यादा बढ़ाया है। नए पुल, नई सड़कें, नई मेट्रो, नए एयरपोर्ट, मुंबई जैसे Maximum City की Maximum Aspirations से जुड़े हुए हैं और खासकर देश के मिडिल क्लास की Aspirations को एड्रेस करते हैं।

साथियों, आज के इस Global World में, Disruptions और Discontent के दौर में हमें वर्तमान के साथ ही भविष्य की आवश्यकताओं को देखते हुए आगे का रास्ता बनाना होगा और हम सबको मिलकर करना होगा। जब हम सभी, देश की आवश्यकताओं को समझते हुए कार्य करेंगे, देश के लोगों की Aspirations को समझते हुए काम करेंगे, तभी न्यू इंडिया के अपने संकल्प को भी पूरा कर पाएंगे। तभी भारत के विशाल Demographic Dividend के साथ हम न्याय कर पाएंगे।

मुझे पूरी उम्मीद है कि महाराष्ट्र सरकार, यहां की ब्यूरोक्रेसी, यहां के करोड़ों नागरिक, अपने-अपने संकल्प को पूरा करेंगे और समय रहते पूरा करेंगे।

आखिर में, Magnetic Maharashtra के charismatic जनता जनार्दन को, यहां के परिश्रमी लोगों को,उद्यमियों को, उनका आभार व्यक्त करते हुए मैं अपनी बात समाप्त करता हूं। फिर एक बार इस समारोह को हृदय से बहुत-बहुत शुभकमानाएं देता हूं। देश-दुनिया से आए हुए सभी महानुभावों को विश्‍वास दिलाता हूं कि भारत सरकार, राज्‍य सरकारों के साथ जुड़ करके राष्‍ट्र के विकास के लिए प्रतिबद्ध है। जो दुनिया की 1/6th population का भला होगा तो दुनिया का कितना भला होगा, जितना अंदाजा आप भलीभांति लगा सकते हैं।

बहुत-बहुत धन्यवाद !!!

Distinguished dignitaries on the dais,

 

Guests from India and abroad,

 

Ladies and Gentlemen

 

 I am very happy to be hereat the inauguration of the World Sustainable Development Summit.To those joining us from abroad:Welcome to India.Welcome to Delhi.

 

On the side lines of the Summit,I hope you shall have some timeto see the history and splendor of this city. This summitis a re-inforcement of India’s commitment to a sustainable planet,for ourselves and for future generations.

 

As a nation,we are proud of our long history and tradition of harmonious co-existencebetween man and nature.Respect for nature is an integral partof our value system.

Our traditional practicescontribute to a sustainable lifestyle.Our goal is to be ableto liveup to our ancient textswhich say, “Keep pure For the Earth is our MotherAnd we are her children”.

 

 One of the most ancient scriptures, the Atharva Veda, spells out

-माताभूमि: पुत्रोहंपृथिव्या:

 

This is the ideal we seek to live through our actions.We believethat all resources and all wealthbelongs to Nature and the Almighty.We are just the trustees or managers of this wealth. Mahatma Gandhi too, advocated this trusteeship philosophy.

 

Recently, National Geographic’s Greendex Report of 2014 which assesses the environmental sustainability of consumer choice,ranked India at the topfor its greenest consumption pattern.Over the years,the World Sustainable Development Summit has spread consciousnes about our actionsto preserve the purity of Mother Earthto all parts of the world.

 

This common desirewas on displayat COP-21 in Paris in 2015.Nations took a standto come togetherand work towards the common cause of sustaining our planet. As the world committedto bring about change,so did we.While the world was discussing'Inconvenient Truth’,we translated it into ‘Convenient Action’. India believes in growthbut is also committedto protecting the environment.

 

Friends, it was with this thoughtthat India,along with France, initiated the International Solar Alliance.It already has one hundred and twenty one members.It is perhaps,the single most important global achievementafter Paris.As part of the Nationally Determined Contributions. India committed to reducingthirty-three to thirty-five percentof emission intensityof its GDPduring 2005 to 2030.

 

Our goal of creating a carbon sink of two point five to three billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent by 2030had once seemed difficult to many.Yetwe continue our steady progresson that path.According to the UNEP Gap Report,India is on track to meet its Copenhagen Pledge of reducing the emissions intensityof its GDPby twenty to twenty-five percent over 2005 levelsby 2020.

 

We are also on track to meet the 2030 Nationally Determined Contribution. The UN Sustainable Development Goalsput us on the pathof equality,equityand climate justice.While we are doingeverything that is required of us,we expect that others also join in to fulfil their commitmentsbased on Common but Differentiated Responsibilityand equity.

 

We must also stress on climate justice for all vulnerable populations.We in Indiaare focused on Ease of living –through Good Governance,Sustainable Livelihood and through Cleaner Environment.The campaign for clean Indiahas moved from the streets of Delhi to every nook and corner of the country.Cleanliness leads to better hygiene,better health,better working conditionsand there-by better income and life.

 

We have also launched a massive campaignto ensure that our farmersconvert agricultural waste to valuable nutrients, instead of burning them.

 

We are also happy to host the 2018 World Environment Dayto highlight our commitment and our continuing partnershipto make the world a cleaner place.

 

We also recognize the need to tackle the issue of water availability,which is becoming a major challenge.That is whywe have introduced the massive Namami Gange initiative. This programme,which has already started giving results,will soon revive  the Ganga,our most precious river.

 

Our country is primarily agrarian.Continued availability of water for agricultureis of importance.The Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojanahas been launched to ensurethat no farm goes without water.Our motto is ‘More crop, per drop.'

 

 India has a fairly decent report card on bio-diversity conservation.With only two point four percent of the world’s land area,India harbours 7-8 percent of the recorded species diversity,while supporting nearly eighteen percent of human population.

 

 India has gained international recognitionfor ten out of its eighteen Biosphere Reservesunder UNESCO’s Man and Biosphere programme.This is a testimony that our development is greenand our wildlife is robust.

 

Friends,

 

India has always believed in making the benefits of good governance reach everyone.

Our mission of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas is an extension of this philosophy.Through this philosophy, we are ensuringthat some of our most deprived areas experience social and economic progresson par with others.

 

 In this day and age,access to electricity and clean cooking solutionsare basicsthat every person must be provided with.These form the coreof any country’s economic development.

 

Yet,there are many in Indiaand outsidewho are strugglingin the absence of these solutions.People are forced to use un-healthy cooking techniques that cause indoor air pollution. I have been told that the smoke in a rural kitchenresulting from this is a serious health hazard.Yet,few talk about it.Keeping this in view we have launched two far-reaching initiatives- Ujjwala and Saubhagya.From the time that they were launched,these schemes have already impacted the lives of millions.With these twin programmes,the time when mothers would fetch dry wood from forestsor prepare cow dung cakes,to feed their familieswill be gone soon.Soon too,the images of traditional firewood stoves will only remain a picturein our social history texts.

 

Similarly,through Saubhagya Scheme,we are working towards electrifying every

house-holdin this country,mostly by the end of this year.We recognizethat only a healthy nationcan lead the process of development.Keeping this in mind,we have launchedthe world’s largest government funded health scheme.The programme will support hundred million poor families.

 

Our ‘Housing for All’and ‘Power for All ’initiativesalso stem from this same agendaof providing the basic amenities of lifeto those who cannot afford them.

 

Friends!

 

You know that Indiais one sixth of the global community.Our development needs are enormous.Our poverty or prosperity will have direct impact on the global poverty or prosperity.People in India have waited too long for access to modern amenities and means of development.

 

We have committed to complete this tasksooner than anticipated.However,we have also saidthat we will do all this in a cleaner and greener way.To give you just a few examples.We are a young Nation.To give employment to our youth,we have decidedto make India a global manufacturing hub.We have launchedthe Make in India campaignfor this.However, at the same time, we are insisting on Zero defect and zero effect manufacturing.

 

As the world’s fastest growing major economy,our energy needs are immense. However,we have planned to draw One 175 Giga-Watts of energy from renewable sources by 2022.This includes 100 Giga-Watts from Solar Energyand another 75Giga-Watts from Wind and other sources.We have added more than14 Giga-Wattsto solar energy generationwhich was just about three Giga-Wattsthree years back.

With this,we are already the fifth largest producer of solar energyin the world.Not only this,we are also the sixth largest producerof renewable energy.

 

With growing urbanizationour transportation needs are growing too.But we are focusingon mass transportation systemsespecially metro rail systems.Even for cargo movement to long distances,we have started workingon national water-way systems.Each of our statesis preparing an action planagainst climate change.

 

This will ensurethat while we are working towards conserving our environment,we also

safe-guard our most vulnerable areas.One of our largest states,Maharashtra,has already adopted a plan of its ownin this direction.We intend to achieve each of our sustainable development objectiveson our own,but collaboration remains the key.

Collaboration between governments,between industries,and between people.The developed worldcan help us achieve them faster.

 

Successful climate action needs access to financial resources and technology.Technology can help countries like Indiadevelop sustainablyand enable the poor to benefit from it.

 

Friends.

 

We are here todayto act upon the beliefthat we as humanscan make a difference to this planet.We need to understand that this planet,our Mother Earth,is one.And so, we should rise above our trivial differences of race, religion, and power, and act as one to save her.

 

With our deep rooted philosophyof co-existence with nature and co-existence with each other, we invite you to join us in the journey of making this planet a more safe and sustainable place.

 

 I wish the World Sustainable Development Summit a great success.

 

Thank You

AKT/SH

Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, Shri Nitin Gadkari has said that India is poised for a leap in Electric Mobility. He was addressing a press conference in the capital today after inaugurating the electric vehicle chargers- slow and fast charging-at an event, ‘Charging the Drive’ held at the NITI Aayog premises. Another attraction today was 17 electric vehicles, on display at NITI Aayog.

Shri Gadkari hailed it as the beginning of a new era through the historic and revolutionary steps taken by NITI Aayog to promote Electric Mobility. He said that the use of electric vehicles will help reduce the burgeoning crude oil imports that hit the exchequer as well as cause immense pollution. He said, “Aajkaprayas economy ko strong karega, imports substitution karega, pollution kamhogaaurrozgaarbadhegi”.

The Union Minister co-related the progress made in solar and wind energy with the potential of Electric Vehicles in future in India. He urged the industry to step forward for Make-in India Electric Vehicles and gave the mantra of “First come, first profit” at the same time keeping a stringent focus on quality. He encouraged use of electric vehicles in public transport, announcing the soon-to-be constructed 70 km electric ropeway system from DhaulaKuan, Delhi to Manesar. He also spoke about tackling on-ground issues such as by providing for Electric Charging stations at the prevalent petrol pumps infrastructure.

NITI Aayog CEO Mr. Amitabh Kant announced on this occasion that NITI Aayog would convert all of its fleet to Electric Vehicles, EV over the next 4 months.

Shri R.K. Singh inaugurates ‘Indian Power Stations 2018’ - International Conference on Operations and Maintenance

Power Minister exhorts NTPC to become India’s power sector multinational, set up plants overseas Plans to send teams to neighbouring countries to assess power demand, explore export opportunities

Union Minister of State (IC) for Power and New and Renewable Energy, Shri R.K. Singh inaugurated the ‘Indian Power Stations 2018’ - three-day International Conference on Operations and Maintenance, here today. The Minister exhorted the NTPC to become India’s power sector multinational by setting up power plants in other Nations and become world’s largest power producer. Shri Singh also added that there was huge opportunity to export cheap power to neighbouring countries which will be beneficial for the entire region.

The Minister said that neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Nepal and Bangladesh are viable markets for export of power, where per unit cost of electricity is very high. He added that Ministry of Power would explore the idea of sending teams to these countries to assess the demand for export of power.

Talking about achieving Government’s aim of ‘24x7 Power for All’ Shri Singh said, “If you look at the entire power sector, the demand has been suppressed because not everyone is connected. We have just started taking-off and going to enter double digit growth. What we see as excess capacity today may not turn out to be enough if we unlock that demand. The unlocking of demand will come but with some constraints. We don’t have a shortage of coal but we need to put in place mechanisms to get coal from underground to over ground and to the power stations and we need to do that as soon as possible”.

Further, the Minister added that when all power plants in the country would run at 70-80 per cent of PLF, there would be no stressed assets. The problem of stressed assets is there because first, the power plants are not able to get adequate coal and secondly, demand needs to be unlocked.

Sharing his views on the status of renewable energy in the country, Shri Singh said that the progressive realization of low prices of renewable energy is sending wrong signals to the market. The Minister said, “The consumers and institutional companies need to understand that this cheap renewable power by itself is not sufficient and need rebalancing with support of steady power. This message we need to get across to the people and to DISCOMs”.

Other dignitaries present on the occasion included Shri Ajay Kumar Bhalla, Secretary Power, along with other senior officers of the Ministry and NTPC.

Market driver: rising investments in renewable energy

A positive consequence of reduced carbon emissions is the growth in the clean energy technology. The transition from fossil fuels and conventional sources of energy to renewable sources such as wind and solar is the key to achieve social, economic, and environmental development. In 2016, it was estimated that the global investments in renewable energy were over USD 300 billion. But, the investment was lower than 2015 due to the reduced cost of components required for the installation of renewable systems. With the advances in renewable technology, the overall capital expenditure required per MW of power generation reduces.

Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

Market trend: adoption of hybrid street lighting system

Street lighting is provided by local power utilities, and a considerable amount of money is being spent to light up streets and public places to ensure visibility during the night and keep pedestrians safe. This has been leading to increased energy bills for the local municipalities, which use off-grid systems. A standalone renewable system from a single source of renewable is insufficient because of the intermittent nature of the energy source.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for power research, “To harness renewable power from the locally available resources, renewable sources are being used with fossil fuel generators or other renewables to provide stable, reliable, and consistent power. Solar-wind hybrid streetlight is a small scale, intelligent, and off-grid LED street light system. In a solar-wind street light, the battery would be charged by solar during the day to provide power during the night, and the wind power will charge the battery during the night when the solar energy is not present.”

Market challenge: competition from alternate sources of energy

Wind energy has been facing competition from other sources of energy such as fossil fuels, solar, and hydropower. Though the installation of wind energy systems costs lesser than solar PV systems, the competition in emerging markets such as Chile and Mexico is high. Furthermore, in windy places such as Argentina, the prices of solar PV have reduced significantly enough to compete with wind energy prices.

JACKSON, Mich., Feb. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Consumers Energy and CMS Energy today announced Consumers Energy's plans to meet Michigan's energy needs reducing carbon emissions by 80 percent and no longer using coal to generate electricity by 2040. The company also said today that more than 40 percent of the energy produced will come from renewable sources and energy storage by 2040.

In the past five years, Consumers Energy has created a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for the state by taking a leadership position in reducing air emissions, reducing water usage, saving landfill space and boosting the amount of renewable energy supplied to customers. This continued transformation to cleaner fuel sources is part of a long-term strategic commitment to protect the planet. 

"Our actions speak louder than words and we have a track record of doing more than is required.  Our actions to date have reduced our carbon intensity by 38 percent, reduced our water usage by 35 percent and avoided over one million cubic yards of landfill disposal. We are still not satisfied. The goals announced today represent our further commitment to leave Michigan far better than we found it, because we live here, too," said Patti Poppe, President and CEO of Consumers Energy & CMS Energy.

The company also announced new 5-year environmental goals for Michigan water, waste and land, including:

  • Water: save 1 billion gallons of water;
  • Waste: reduce waste to landfills by 35 percent; and
  • Land: enhance, restore or protect 5,000 acres of land in Michigan.

Consumers Energy has served Michigan with safe, reliable and affordable energy for more than 130 years, and boasts a strong track record of environmental stewardship. The company:

  • Ranked as one of the Top 10 Greenest Companies in the Nation and the #1 company in Michigan in Newsweek's annual rankings just last month.  This recognition reflects Consumers Energy's commitment to environmental principles that are good for the people of Michigan.
  • Scored highest for sustainability performance among U.S. utility companies and ranked 16th among 195 global utilities, as assessed by Sustainalytics, for the second consecutive year.
  • Began moving away from coal by closing seven of its twelve coal-fired generating plants in 2016 – more than any investor-owned utility that year, resulting in a 38 percent carbon intensity reduction from 2008 levels.
  • Received the Governor's 2017 Excellence in Recycling Award from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
  • Helped residential and business customers save over $1 billion with energy efficiency programs since 2009.
  • Announced in 2017 a Large Customer Renewable Energy Tariff program which allows large job-providing companies who elect to generate 100 percent of their energy with renewable sources from Consumers Energy.
  • Owns and operates two wind farms – the Lake Winds and Cross Winds energy parks – and operates two utility-scale solar projects at Western Michigan and Grand Valley State universities. In addition the company utilizes energy from the Apple Blossom wind park; and co-owns the Ludington Clean Pumped Storage facility, a hydroelectric plant on Lake Michigan.
  • The company is also investing in modernizing its natural gas infrastructure across the state, which is more safely delivering energy to Michigan customers while reducing greenhouse gas emissions as gas is transported.

Consumers Energy is embracing a cleaner, leaner vision focused primarily on reducing energy usage and adding additional renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar. The strategic roadmap for reaching its clean energy goal by 2040 will be published later this year when the company files its Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) with the Michigan Public Service Commission.

"We're proud and uniquely qualified to provide the strong leadership needed to protect our planet and our home state for decades to come," added Poppe.

Consumers Energy, Michigan's largest energy provider, is the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), providing natural gas and/or electricity to 6.7 million of the state's 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.

ALMERE, Niederlande, February 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Batteriespeicher ermöglicht ein energieneutrales Verteilzentrum 

- Alfen, Spezialist für Energielösungen der Zukunft, gibt den Start eines intelligenten Energiespeichersystems für das Logistikzentrum von Eandis in Lokeren, Belgien, bekannt. Das System wird dazu verwendet, den Eigenverbrauch der auf dem Dach erzeugten Solarenergie zu optimieren. Das Speichersystem mit dem Namen "TheBattery" erleichtert Eandis die Umstellung von einer mit fossilen Brennstoffen betriebenen Anlage hin zu einem energieneutralen Verteilzentrum. 

     (Photo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/643013/Alfen_Eandis_Energy_Storage_System.jpg )

Eigenverbrauch von erneuerbaren Energien im Logistikzentrum von Eandis  

Mit Aktivitäten in 229 Städten und Gemeinden in der gesamten belgischen Region Flandern betreut der Verteilnetzbetreiber Eandis 2,7 Millionen Stromanschlüsse. Eandis erweiterte jüngst sein Logistikzentrum in Lokeren mit rund 375 kWp auf dem Dach angebrachter Solarenergie. Um die intermittierende Erzeugung der Solarenergie mit dem eigenen Betrieb in Einklang zu bringen, implementiert das Unternehmen jetzt das Batterie-Energiespeichersystem TheBattery von Alfen. TheBattery trägt zur zunehmenden Elektrifizierung des Standorts bei und unterstützt so den Wandel von mit fossilen Brennstoffen betriebenen Maschinen und Fahrzeugen hin zur Nutzung von Elektrizität als Energiequelle.

Jean Pierre Hollevoet, Director Asset Management und Supply Chain bei Eandis, kommentiert: "Mit dem neuen Energiespeichersystem von Alfen sind wir in der Lage, den Eigenverbrauch der Solarenergie in unseren Anlagen zu optimieren. Das ist ein wichtiger Schritt in Richtung eines energieneutralen und nachhaltigen Verteilzentrums. Mit 80 Jahren Erfahrung verfügt Alfen über fundiertes technisches Know-how hinsichtlich der Entwicklung komplexer Batteriespeichersysteme. Zudem gehen wir davon aus, dass in Zukunft immer mehr Kunden, die an unser Stromnetz angeschlossen sind, Energiespeichersysteme einsetzen werden. Wir wollen auf die Eingliederung solcher Systeme in unser Netz vorbereitet sein. Aus diesem Grund möchten wir Erfahrungen sammeln - sowohl in den Bereichen Handhabbarkeit und Betriebskosten als auch im Hinblick auf die Auswirkungen auf die operative Effizienz eines solchen Speichersystems."

Energiespeichersystem TheBattery 

Alfen liefert ein 140-kW-Energiespeichersystem, das mit dem Logistikzentrum von Eandis verbunden sein wird. Zudem liefert und implementiert Alfen auch die Remoteverwaltung und -steuerung des Systems und stellt eine Plattform bereit, über die Eandis das System sowohl zum Optimieren des Eigenverbrauchs erneuerbarer Energien als auch zur Spannungsregelung nutzen kann. Yves Vercammen, Sales Manager für Alfen in Belgien, merkt an: "Wir freuen uns über die Möglichkeit, unser Speichersystem und die jahrzehntelange Erfahrung mit Stromnetzen in dieses Projekt einzubringen. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Eandis zeigt, dass wir im Herzen der Energiewende tätig sind - mit einem einzigartigen integrierten Angebot, das ganz darauf ausgerichtet ist, den Weg für das Energienetz der Zukunft zu bereiten. Dieses Projekt belegt die steigende Nachfrage nach dezentralen Lösungen im Bereich der erneuerbaren Energien, die intelligente Energielösungen erfordern."

Das Speichersystem wird im ersten Quartal 2018 in Betrieb genommen.

SHANGHAI, Feb. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) ("JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that it provided solar modules for the Flex House, presented by Green Builder® Media and built by Shelter Dynamics, exhibited at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Flex House, a net-zero, 760 square foot smart home provides a compelling vision of sustainable compact living with all of the creature comforts modern urbanites are accustomed to. It comes with a full suite of smart home functions and sustainable fixtures all integrated with Amazon Alexa. The Flex House also incorporated electrical vehicle charging, with a Bosch charging station and a Toyota Prius Prime.  

The Flex House is entirely powered by a solar plus storage system using a series of all-black JinkoSolar high-efficiency monocrystalline PERC modules and a backup battery system that maximizes the house's power generating ability despite its compact size. The off-grid home was one of the only exhibits at CES, the world's largest electronics show, that remained fully powered during the massive power outage that took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, demonstrating its potential real life application. The Flex House is expected to be available on the market later this year, with base models ranging from $125,000 to $150,000. 

"Our vision has always been to increase the use of renewables in the world's energy mix and that goes beyond just changing the way power is generated. It is also about optimizing the way we consume electricity and the overall ecosystem around that consumption," said Mr. Xiande Li, JinkoSolar Chairman. "Green Builder Media clearly shares this vision, and we are pleased to be part of the Flex House. As a global leader in the solar PV industry, we are thrilled to be included in the smart home conversation with global brands like Amazon, Bosch, and Toyota." 

"As the global population continues to grow and space and resources become more scarce, we're going to need different types of housing solutions," said Ms. Sara Gutterman, CEO of Green Builder Media. "The Flex House exemplifies the type of small-footprint, intelligent, sustainable, and solar-powered homes that we need to start embracing. JinkoSolar understands the need for a new housing solution and is undoubtedly positioned to be an essential part of next generation, smart homes."

SHANGHAI, Feb. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) (the "Company," or "JinkoSolar"), a global leader in the solar PV industry, today announced that its world record breaking 1177 MW Sweihan project, co-developed by JinkoSolar, Marubeni, and the Abu Dhabi Electricity and Water Authority ("ADEWA"), was named as the Large Scale Solar Project of the Year by the Middle East Solar Industry Association (MESIA). 

The award is one of theMiddle East's most recognized honors and further demonstrates the significance of the Sweihan project. The winning project was selected by a panel of nine judges from across the industry who assessed the impact and innovativeness of large scale solar projects in the Middle East. Once complete, the 1177 MW Sweihan project will be the world's largest PV power plant.

The Sweihan project's large scale and competitive electricity generation cost was benefit from the utilization of JinkoSolar high efficiency solar modules. Given the limited physical space allotted to the project, the use of JinkoSolar high efficiency modules not only allowed for the maximization of electricity output, but also allowed for decreased balance of system costs. 

Mr. Xiande Li, Chairman of JinkoSolar, commented, "The Sweihan project marks not only a milestone for JinkoSolar, Marubeni, and ADEWA, but is also a giant leap for the global solar power industry as a whole. MESIA's recognition of this project further underlines the ground-breaking nature of the Sweihan project. Fueled by the success of this project, we will continue to produce cutting-edge high efficiency modules to fulfill our vision of optimizing the world's energy infrastructure with clean solar power."

The results of the 2017 fiscal year are in line with expectations, despite the decline in nuclear and hydropower output in France and the unfavourable price conditions in almost all geographic areas where the Group is active. Actions undertaken to optimize operations and accelerate cost reductions have helped generate an EBITDA of €13.7 billion, in line with the initial targets.
EBITDA for the France - Generation and supply activities segment amounted to €4,876 million. Restated for the impact of the tariff adjustment[14], which took place in 2016, EBITDA was down 7.9% in organic terms. This change is mainly due to the decline in nuclear and hydropower output, to the impact of the purchases of the volumes required to cover the ARENH subscriptions in a tense market environment, and, to a lesser extent, to the unfavourable conditions in the downstream market.

EBITDA for France - Regulated activities[15] amounted to €4,898 million. Restated for the impact of the tariff adjustment14 which took place in 2016, EBITDA was down 3.8% in organic terms. This change is attributable to the downward trend in volumes delivered by Enedis, the impact of storms and hurricanes and the positive factors in 2016 that had no equivalent in 2017.

In the United Kingdom, EBITDA was down 33.3% in organic terms to €1,035 million, mainly due to the significant impact of lower realised nuclear prices.

In Italy, EBITDA recorded an organic increase of 42.1% to €910 million due in particular to favourable trends in electricity sale prices and to the optimisation of the gas-fired generation fleet. The performance of the exploration-production activities for hydrocarbons, in a context of higher Brent oil and gas prices and higher output after a new platform came online, also contributed to this positive development in EBITDA.

EDF Énergies Nouvelles' performance benefitted from an 11% increase in renewable power output in connection with an increase of 1.6GW in net installed capacities to 7.8 GW. EBITDA stood at €751 million, down 14.8 % in organic terms, due to lower asset rotation activity than in 2016. EBITDA from generation rose by 8.5% organically to €741 million.

EBITDA for the Other international segment stood at €457 million, an organic decrease of 17.9%, attributable essentially to the drop in electricity prices and to lower power generation in Belgium. The unfavourable revision of the index of the price of the Power Purchase Agreement in Brazil also contributed to the decrease.

Operating performance 

In France, nuclear output stood at 379.1TWh, a decrease of -1.3% (4.9TWh) compared to 2016.

In 2017, nuclear generation was affected by technical unavailabilities (in particular the extended unplanned outages at Flamanville 1 and Cattenom 1) and by the extension of outages to conduct maintenance work on several reactors. The provisional shutdown of the four Tricastin reactors, as requested by the ASN, also led to a drop in output of 6TWh over the final quarter.

Hydropower output stood at 37.1TWh[16], down by 5.3TWh from 2016 due to particularly unfavourable hydrological conditions, 2017 being the driest year since 2011.

Dispatch of thermal generation facilities increased in relation with lower nuclear and hydro output. Their output, up 4.1TWh compared to 2016, reached 16.1TWh.

In the United Kingdom, nuclear output stood at 63.9TWh, confirming the good operating performance by the fleet. The slight decrease of 1.2TWh compared to the record high level in 2016, was due in particular to a low level of planned outages in 2016 and to the extended outage at Sizewell B at the end of 2017.

EDF Énergies Nouvelles output reached 12.6TWh, an increase of 11% over 2016.

In France, heightened competition led to a drop in market share of residential customers to 85.5%, representing a net loss of around one million customers. Market share in the business customers segment held up more robustly, and now stands at 64.6%, thanks in particular to the winning back of previous customers. The EDF group has put into place a response plan with the launching of new offers (in particular the "Vert électrique") and the rapid adjustment of commercial costs. In Europe, the Group is resisting well in the residential customers segment, in particular in the United Kingdom, Belgium and Italy, where the acquisition currently in progress of GNVI will provide a growth driver starting in 2018.

Dalkia's sales growth (+6.1% in organic change) was notably driven by the development of activities in heating and cooling networks, new contracts in the industry and abroad, and the acquisition of Imtech in the United Kingdom. Moreover, the share of renewable and recovery energies in the energy mix represents 37%, i.e. +8% compared to 2016. Citelum signed numerous agreements in 2017, notably with the city of Dijon, Mexico City and the city of Albuquerque. Fenice renewed its agreement with Fiat for five years, renewable one time.

The financial result was up by €1,097 million compared to 2016, thanks in particular to an increase in capital gains on the sales of dedicated assets and to lower unwinding costs attributable primarily to a decrease in the discount rate on nuclear provisions in France at 31 December 2017 compared to the preceding financial year-end (-0.1% in the real rate), which was less marked than the decrease recorded at 31 December 2016 (-0.2%).

Net income excluding non-recurring items stood at €2,820 million in 2017, down by 31.0% from 2016. This includes the drop in EBITDA, which was partially offset by the improvement of the financial result and by the drop in corporate income tax.

The Group's share of net income totalled €3,173 million in 2017, up €322 million compared to 2016 (+11.3%), thanks in particular to the positive effect of the capital gain recorded for the sale of 49.9% of CTE[17].

Performance plan in advance

2017 was marked by the significant progress made in the deployment of the performance plan announced in April 2016. Firstly, operating expenses[18] were reduced by €431 million in 2017 compared to 2016, i.e. a cumulative reduction of approximately €706 million between 2015 and 2017. All segments contributed to this financial result, with, in particular, a decrease in 2017 of 5.2% in operating expenses in the France - Generation and supply activities segment, notably thanks to a decrease in costs for support functions and to the adjustment of the costs of the commercial functions. Italy recorded a drop of 4.1%, and Belgium 3.0%.

Optimisation plans had a positive impact of €431 million on the working capital requirement in 2017, representing a cumulated optimisation of €1.9 billion over the period 2015-2017, which allowed the target to be exceeded one year early.

The disposal plan was carried out with success, with €8.1 billion in disposals over the 2015-2017 period, i.e. more than 80% of the 2020 target has been reached at the half-way point.

Proposed dividend for 2017: €0.46/share, i.e. a payout ratio of 60%
with an option of payment in new shares

At its 15 February 2018 meeting, EDF's Board of Directors decided to propose the payment of a €0.46 per share dividend for the 2017 fiscal year at the General shareholder's meeting of 15 May 2018. This would correspond to a payout ratio of 60% of net income excluding non-recurring items[19].

When subtracting the interim dividend of €0.15 per share paid out in December 2017, the balance of the dividend to be paid out on the 2017 financial year comes to €0.31 per share for shares receiving the ordinary dividend.

Subject to approval at the Shareholders' Meeting, in accordance with Article L. 232-18 of the French Commercial Code and Article 25 of the Company's articles of association, EDF's Board of Directors decided on 15 February 2018 to offer each shareholder the option of being paid in new EDF stocks on the remaining dividend to be paid for the year exercice ending at 31 December 2017. In case the option is exercised, the new shares will be issued at a price equal to 90% of the average of opening prices of the EDF share on the Euronext Paris regulated market over the twenty trading days preceding the day of the Shareholders' Meeting, reduced by the amount of the balance of the dividend to be paid for the 2017 financial year, rounded up to the nearest euro cent.

On 15 February 2018, EDF's Board of Directors set the terms of payment of the balance of the dividend for the 2017 financial year which will be submitted for approval during the General meeting of shareholders to be held on 15 May 2018:

  • ordinary and loyalty dividend ex-date on 25 May 2018;
  • exercise period for payment in new shares from 25 May to 11 June 2018 inclusive;
  • payment date of the balance of the dividend and settlement/delivery of the shares on 19 June 2018.

Cash flow and Net financial debt

Total net investments including acquisitions but excluding the disposal plan reached €16 billion. Taking into account the significant asset disposals in 2017 (€6,193 million in 2017 compared to €1,139 in 2016), the total net investments and acquisitions amounted to €9,810 million in 2017, compared to €11,663 million in 2016. Moreover, total net investments excluding Linky[20], new developments[21] and the disposal plan amounted to €11,968 million, up slightly by 1.3% compared to 2016, in line with the acceleration of investments in renewable energies.

Cash flow after net investments stood at €1,853 million, a significant improvement of €2,392 million, despite the drop in EBITDA, thanks mainly to the assets disposals in 2017 and to the inflow of most of the tariff adjustment, which took place in 2016[22]. Group cash flow[23] amounted to -€209 million, up €1,356 million despite the allocation of dedicated assets of €1,095 million requested by a ministerial letter of 10 February 2017.

  31/12/2016 31/12/2017
Net financial debt[24] (in billions of Euros) 37.4 33.0
Net financial debt/EBITDA: 2.3x 2.4x

The Group's net financial debt reached €33.0 billion at the end of 2017. It was €37.4 billion at 31 December 2016. This improvement is mainly attributable to the capital increase of €4 billion and to asset disposals carried out in 2017. The ratio of net financial debt/EBITDA stood at 2.4x at 31 December 2017.

Outlook

The Group is continuing the deployment of its strategic plan and confirms its 2018 targets[25]:

  • Operating expenses[26]: €800 million reduction compared to 2015
  • EBITDA[27]: between €14.6 and €15.3 billion
  • Cash flow27,[28] excluding Linky[29], new developments and 2015-20 assets disposal plan: slightly positive or close to balance
  • Assets disposal plan: around €10 billion over 2015-2018[30]
  • Net investments excluding Linky29, new developments and 2015-20 assets disposal plan: around €11 billion
  • Total net investments excluding acquisitions and 2015-20 assets disposal plan: around €15 billion
  • Net financial debt/EBITDA27: less than or equal to 2.7x
  • Target payout ratio, based on net income excluding non-recurring items[31]: 50%

In 2019, in a context marked by an expected decline in nuclear generation in France compared to 2018, the measures to reduce operating expenses26 will be increased, with the target being revised upwards to €1.1 billion compared to 2015.

The 2019 target payout ratio of the net income excluding non-recurring items31 is confirmed at 45%-50%.

Main Group results by segment

France - Generation and supply activities 

 

 

 

(in millions of Euros)

2016 2017 Organic change (%)[32] Organic change (%)
Excluding tariff adjustment[33]
Sales 35,191 35,606 +1.2 +4.1
EBITDA 6,156 4,876 -20.8 -7.9

Sales in France - Generation and supply activities amounted to €35,606 million. Restated for the impact of the tariff adjustment33 which took place in 2016, sales were up 4.1% in organic terms. EBITDA stood at €4,876 million. Restated for the impact of the tariff adjustment33 which amounted to €859 million, EBITDA was down -7.9% in organic terms.

The lower level of nuclear power and hydropower output compared to 2016 had an unfavourable impact estimated at -€504 million.

EBITDA also declined by around €311 million in 2017 due to the net effect of operations on the wholesale markets, particularly for additional purchases while prices were high, required to cover 2017 ARENH subscriptions. These purchases were also to make up for lower nuclear power output due to additional controls in connection with the carbon segregation issue, in particular during the first half of the year. This effect was partly counterbalanced in the second half-year of 2017 as purchases had been made at particularly high prices in the final quarter of 2016 due to lower nuclear plant availability.

Heightened competition, reflected in a net loss of around one million residential customers, and negative price effects on new offers also had an estimated net effect of -€341 million on EBITDA.

Tariff changes, excluding remuneration of capacity in the tariff "stacking" calculation, led to an estimated decrease of -€363 million[34] compared to 2016.

The introduction of the capacity mechanism had a favourable +€580 million estimated impact on EBITDA for 2017. The capacity price is included in regulated tariffs and market-price offers, and excess capacities are sold off on the wholesale markets.

The weather, which was generally milder than in 2016 with a particularly cold spell early in 2017, and the "leap year effect" of 2016 had a negative effect estimated at -€186 million in 2017.

Under the EDF group's performance plan, operating expenses[35]  were brought down by an estimated €494 million (-5.2%) through actions to improve operating performance and control of payroll costs. These measures are being applied across all entities, notably through cost-cutting in support functions and adjustment of the costs of commercial activities.

France - Regulated activities[36]

 

 

 

(in millions of Euros)

2016 2017 Organic change (%)[37] Organic change (%)
Excluding tariff adjustment[38]
Sales 15,728 15,896 +1.1 +1.3
EBITDA 5,102 4,898 -4.0 -3.8

Sales for the France - Regulated activities segment amounted to €15,896 million. Restated for the impact of the tariff adjustment38 for Électricité de Strasbourg which took place in 2016, it was up 1.3% in organic terms.

EBITDA stood at €4,898 million. Without the impact of regulated sales tariff adjustment, EBITDA registered an organic decline of -3.8%, including the unfavourable €42 million[39] effect of a decline in volumes delivered by Enedis[40]. Demand was down 0.4TWh (i.e. -0.2%). As a reminder, the impacts related to the drop in demand are eligible for the tariff rectification mechanism (CRCP).

2017 was also marked by exceptionally fierce storms in mainland France, with an estimated negative impact
of -€60 million corresponding to the operating expenses incurred for work and power cut indemnities. The hurricanes on St Martin and St Barthélémy generated costs estimated at -€23 million.

All these unfavourable factors were only partially offset by tariff increases for Enedis associated with the introduction of the TURPE 5 tariff from 1 August 2017 (raising delivery tariffs on the distribution network by +2.71%) amounting to an estimated +€102 million.

The residual decrease of €168 million in EBITDA is essentially caused by the existence of favourable developments in 2016 that had no equivalent in 2017, principally concerning the island activities.

United Kingdom 

(in millions of Euros) 2016 2017 Organic change (%)
Sales 9,267 8,688 -0.8
EBITDA 1,713 1,035 -33.3

The United Kingdom's contribution to Group sales amounted to €8,688 million in 2017, down 0.8% in organic terms compared to 2016. EBITDA stood at €1,035 million, down by 33.3% in organic terms from 2016.

EBITDA was penalised by the effect of the downturn in realised prices for nuclear power (-12%). Nuclear generation output amounted to 63.9TWh confirming the good operating performance by the fleet, after an exceptional 2016.

The number of residential customer accounts declined only slightly compared to end 2016, indicating resilience in a highly competitive market. Moreover, consumption was lower in connection with rising energy efficiency.

In addition, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) guarantee, granted under the framework of the HPC project, was formally cancelled on 5 February 2018 on EDF's request.

Italy 

(in millions of Euros) 2016 2017 Organic change (%)
Sales 11,125 9,940 -10.6
EBITDA 641 910 +42.1

Sales in Italy amounted to €9,940 million, down 10.6% organically from 2016, due on one hand to the drop in Electricity activities caused by lower volumes sold, and on the other by the "derivatives" component of hedges, the latter not significantly affecting the margin. EBITDA recorded an organic increase of 42.1% to €910 million.

EBITDA for the electricity activities showed organic growth of €26 million or +10.0% from 2016. It benefited from favourable trends in sale prices and optimisation of the gas-fired plants' generation capacities.

EBITDA for the hydrocarbon activities registered organic growth of €96 million or +19.7% compared to 2016. It benefited from favourable movements in Brent oil and gas prices, and higher output after a new platform came online in Egypt. Maintenance costs for the exploration-production activity were also optimised.

EBITDA also benefited from the positive effect of the sale of the Milan headquarters for around €100 million[41].

Sales in Other activities amounted to €7,813 million, down 1.0% in organic terms compared to 2016. EBITDA recorded an organic decrease of 24.7% to €1,566 million.

EDF Énergies Nouvelles' contribution to consolidated EBITDA totalled €751 million, corresponding to an organic decrease of €127 million (-14.8%) from 2016, due to lower sales of assets than in 2016 which registered a high level of such operations. However, production (including Futuren) showed strong growth of close to +11% (+1.2TWh) and contributed €741 million to 2017 EBITDA. Sales of assets covered the structure and development costs. Against this background, the net installed capacity was up by +1.6GW to 7.8GW at 31 December 2017. The portfolio of projects under construction by EDF Énergies Nouvelles totalled 1.9GW, a significant share of 0.9GW concerning solar power projects.

Dalkia's EBITDA was €259 million, corresponding to an organic decrease of €4 million (-1.6%). Conclusions and renewals of a large number of commercial contracts, favourable trends in the indexes for revising service prices, and the positive effect of rising energy prices all made positive contributions to EBITDA. However, financial performance is penalised by a one-off operating issue on a contract led by a subsidiary.

EBITDA at EDF Trading amounted to €358 million in 2017, an organic decline of 46.8% after an exceptional 2016, characterized by a sharp rise in electricity prices and volatility in Europe at the end of the year, as well as the difficult market conditions in North America. A reorganisation is currently underway in that region. As part of a new strategic partnership, the EDF Group and JERA joined their coal negotiation and trading activities in April 2017 in a joint venture in which EDF Trading holds a 33% stake.

Sales in Other international amounted to €4,822 million, up 0.5% in organic terms over 2016. EBITDA recorded an organic decrease of 17.9% to €457 million.

In Belgium, EBITDA was down organically by 30.2% to €145 million mainly as a result of the downturn in electricity prices and lower nuclear power generation due in particular to the maintenance programme and unplanned outages at Doel 3. Wind power continued to grow as installed capacities were increased, reaching 376MW
at 31 December 2017 (+25% compared with 31 December 2016).

Brazil's EBITDA was negatively affected by the annual revision of the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) price with Norte Fluminense, after an exceptional year in 2016. This was partly offset by optimisation actions on the markets as spot prices were high while unplanned unavailability was at its lowest point, and also by a steady decrease in operating expenses.

2017 also saw the sale of EDF Polska's assets, on 13 November 2017[44].

Strong quarter

(Oslo, 15 February 2018) Statkraft recorded an underlying EBITDA of NOK 4786 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. This was an increase of NOK 115 million compared with the corresponding period in 2016. The quarterly net profit ended at NOK 5317 million, an increase of NOK 4569 million from the same quarter in 2016. Solid underlying performance, gains from divestments of offshore wind assets and reversal of impairments led to the strong result.

The average Nordic system price in the quarter was 30.6 EUR/MWh, a decrease of 11 per cent compared with the price level experienced in the same period in 2016. Statkraft's total generation was 17.3 TWh, a decrease of nine per cent from a very high level in the fourth quarter in 2016.

- We are very satisfied with the strongest result since 2008, demonstrating high performance and successful divestments, says CEO Christian Rynning-Tønnesen. 

Increased need for flexibility in the German market and improved outlook for future gas to power margin has led to a reversal of impairments of NOK 914 million for gas-fired power plants.

Statkraft divested its 40 per cent shareholding in the Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm and its 50 per cent shareholding in the Triton Knoll offshore wind project. Recognised gains from these transactions were NOK 3061 million. In addition, Statkraft has signed an agreement to divest the 30 per cent shareholding in the Dudgeon offshore wind farm. Closing of the Dudgeon transaction is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2018. The transactions are in line with Statkraft's strategy to divest offshore wind assets.

- The sales of offshore wind assets combined with the new long term dividend model significantly strengthens our financial capacity. Together with the performance improvement programme, this gives a solid foundation for further growth in renewable energy, says Rynning-Tønnesen.

Statkraft is actively exploring new business within hydropower, wind power, solar power and other opportunities within renewable energy. Silva Green Fuel, a company owned by Statkraft and Södra, has decided to build a demonstration plant for advanced biofuel in Norway.

Statkraft has entered into a new long-term power contract with Eramet. The contract runs from 2021 to 2030 with a total volume of 8 TWh. The contract reaffirms Statkraft's position as a competitive supplier to Norwegian industry and will have a stabilising effect on Statkraft's revenues.

Financial statements for Statkraft AS Group for 2017 has been approved by the Board of Directors of Statkraft AS. Statkraft's generation reached 62.6 TWh in 2017, down 5 per cent from the record high level in 2016. The average system price at Nord Pool was 29.4 EUR/MWh, an increase of 9 per cent year-on-year. The underlying EBITDA ended at a solid NOK 14 432 million, compared to NOK 12 705 million in 2016. The result for 2017 was significantly influenced by gains from transactions. Profit before tax was NOK 15 693 million and net profit ended at NOK 11 732 million.

The annual report for 2017 will be disclosed 28 February 2018.

Abstract

The synergies between rooftop solar PV (RPV) and energy efficiency (EE) investments in the built environment include lower specific transaction costs, optimized RPV systems, shorter project payback periods (compared to RPV-only projects), and, for EE, enhanced project visibility. These synergies improve the likelihood of project implementation, which in turn helps to reduce peak demand, increase environmental benefits, improve energy security, and lower energy bills. Because the methods of financing and implementing RPV and EE in the built environment are often similar, it is wise to consider including an EE component when investing in an RPV project, and vice versa.

NEW YORK, Feb. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Five Con Edison researchers have earned recognition for findings that help the energy industry manage solar projects, keep their systems safe from cyber attacks, and take advantage of the benefits of microgrids.

The employees earned the Technology Transfer Award from the Electric Power Research Institute, a national organization dedicated to the safe, reliable delivery of power.

“Rapid advances in technology give us new ways to serve customers, but also challenge us to understand complex, new concepts,” said Tim Cawley, the president of Con Edison. “The work our researchers have done with EPRI will help Con Edison and other energy companies keep their service safe and reliable as customer needs and technology continue to evolve.”

James Skillman, a project manager in Con Edison’s Distribution Planning department, helped develop a model that uses data like energy prices, the cost of solar panels and income levels to predict the number of customers who will choose solar for their homes and businesses.

Energy companies like Con Edison can use the information to help plan how they deploy and manage solar energy on their electric-delivery systems in ways that keep service reliable for all customers.

Andrew Reid, a senior planning analyst in Distributed Resource Integration, won for research into the planning, designing and operation of microgrids.

Microgrids are local energy networks that are able to separate from the larger electrical grid during extreme weather events or emergencies, providing power to individual customers and crucial public services such as hospitals, first responders, and water treatment facilities.

Three researchers developed a system to help energy companies evaluate the strength of their substation cyber security protections. The method can help energy companies plan cyber security investments to protect their equipment and customers.

Those winners were: Arman Shiplu, a section manager in Protective Systems Testing, William Vesely, a project specialist in Control Systems Engineering, and Selena Ley, a technical specialist in Corporate Security.

Con Edison is a subsidiary of Consolidated Edison, Inc. (NYSE:ED), one of the nation’s largest investor-owned energy companies, with approximately $12 billion in annual revenues and $49 billion in assets. The utility delivers electricity, natural gas and steam to 3.4 million customers in New York City and Westchester County, N.Y.

ESMAP launched in January 2013 an initiative to support the efforts of countries to improve the knowledge of renewable energy (RE) resources, establish appropriate institutional framework for the development of RE and provide "free access" to geospatial resources and data. This initiative will also support the IRENA-GlobalAtlas program by improving data availability and quality, consulted through an interactive atlas. This "Renewable Energy Mapping: Small Hydro Tanzania" study, is part of a technical assistance project, ESMAP funded, being implemented by Africa Energy Practice 1 (AFTG1) of the World Bank in Tanzania (the ‘Client’) which aims at supporting resource mapping and geospatial planning for small hydro. It is being undertaken in close coordination with the Rural Energy Agency (REA) of Tanzania, the World Bank’s primary Client country counterpart for this study. The prefeasibility study of the Luegere River is characterized by a good guaranteed low-flow that should be confirmed by hydrological monitoring of the River. The preliminary investigation of the surface geology concludes that from a geological point of view the site is favorable for the construction of the project as long as the appropriate mitigation measures are put in place. The site has no major problems of stability and leakages. Beyond the development of the Luegere hydroelectric project, it is strongly recommended that the Government of Tanzania further develop the existing hydrological monitoring network for its rivers with high hydropower potential in order to better understand the available water resources and thus promote the development of hydroelectric projects across the country. It is only in a context of reduced uncertainties through reliable, recent and long-term records (more than 20 years) that technical parameters and economic and financial analyzes of hydroelectric developments can be defined accurately, enabling optimization of their design and their flood control infrastructure (temporary and permanent).  See Less -
