BENTONVILLE, Ark. & SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Walmart announced that it has reached an agreement with SunPower to have the commercial energy provider install solar systems at 19 stores and two distribution centers in Illinois.

As part of the project, a mix of rooftop and ground-mount solar systems are expected to account for 23 megawatts, with start of construction targeted for the first half of 2019. This commitment moves Walmart closer to its 2025 goal of supplying its global operations with 50 percent renewable energy. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, the amount of anticipated annual carbon offset by this initiative will be equal to the amount of carbon sequestered by over 24,000 acres of U.S. forest in one year – the size of Elgin, Ill.

“Solar is a vital component of Walmart’s expanding renewable energy portfolio,” said Mark Vanderhelm, vice president of energy for Walmart Inc. “Walmart plans to tirelessly pursue renewable energy projects that are right for our customers, our business and the environment. These planned projects with SunPower are moving us in the right direction toward our renewable energy goals.”

Walmart is financing the solar projects through a power purchase agreement (PPA) arranged by SunPower, allowing Walmart to buy power at competitive prices and hedge against future utility rate increases with no upfront capital costs. Walmart will own the renewable energy credits associated with the system.

“We commend Walmart for its leadership in driving corporate renewable energy adoption in the United States and for partnering with SunPower to deliver high-efficiency, high-quality solar to so many of its stores and facilities,” said Nam Nguyen, SunPower Executive Vice President, Commercial Americas. “As the top U.S. commercial solar provider and with over 30 years of experience, SunPower is well positioned to help Walmart increase its renewable energy investments in a cost-effective manner.”

In Illinois, smart state policy and rising utility rates make solar a smart investment for commercial customers. These installations will represent a 25 percent increase in Illinois’ current solar capacity and will generate enough electricity to power nearly 30,000 homes.

“Illinois Solar Energy Association is committed to advancing solar locally, enabling companies like Walmart – with stores and employees across our great state – to realize the economic and environmental value of renewable energy,” said Lesley McCain, Executive Director of the Illinois Solar Energy Association. “These projects will create hundreds of jobs for Illinois’ growing solar workforce while reducing pollution across the state.”

The Moscone Center is nearing completion of a three-and-a-half year, $500-million upgrade that will add 500,000 square feet of contiguous meeting space. All over the country, other cities are doing the same: expanding and modernizing their convention facilities in a ferocious competition to attract business and tourism dollars. New York City is leading the pack with a $1.5 billion expansion of Manhattan's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Not to be left behind, the Las Vegas Convention Center is spending $1.4 billion to expand and modernize1.

But acres of shiny new floor space, blazing-fast Wi-Fi and luxury lodgings will not mean much if attendees feel unsafe at convention facilities, most of which are located in the heart of major urban centers.

As the primary conference facility in San Francisco, Moscone Center has conventional, fixed camera surveillance throughout the building, where access to power and communications is available. In the outdoors, however, areas such as nearby parking garages, the venue perimeter and surrounding streets have security vulnerabilities; without easy access to power, it has traditionally fallen to manned security, when available, to secure these areas. Moscone needed extensibility, fast.

"The V5 PSU gives us a broader overview than our legacy systems could previously accommodate," explained Damion Ellis, Director of Safety and Security for the Moscone Center. "With V5 Systems units' real-time monitoring; we'll have visibility where needed. And because it's a cloud-based system, it allows for collaborative security."

Providing security for a convention center that sprawls across three blocks in the core of a major city can be a challenge, but the forward-thinking security team at Stadium Management Group saw V5 Systems' leading-edge technology as the way to expand their footprint.

"We're looking forward to helping attendees enjoy a secure experience not only at Moscone Center events, but at all short-term events around the city including fairs, festivals, marathons and outdoor concerts," said V5 Systems Chief Executive Officer, Steve Yung.

V5 Systems, leveraging Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, brings computing and security to the outdoors, where actionable data collection has been sparse. Oracle enables V5 Systems to quickly scale its solutions and provide its customers with easy and affordable storage. Yung will be a featured session speaker at Oracle OpenWorld, highlighting how the Oracle Cloud is integral to Industrial IoT growth.

"A secure convention facility is a must for any city," said Mazin Bedwan, V5 Systems president and co-founder. "Our wireless, self-powered units provide the flexibility and scalability needed to monitor previously inaccessible areas, so attendees and locals alike can feel safe. That's why we offer subscription and short-term rental options. That way, any-sized municipality can have our units onsite right away, wherever they're needed." While V5 Systems' technology allows for fast deployment, Bedwan believes that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the key that will allow V5 Systems to expand rapidly and globally.

V5 Systems' wireless units leap ahead of analog security systems by employing "edge computing"; meaning, each unit processes information at the point of contact without the need for sending information back and forth from a server or human interaction. The V5 PSU offers visual situational awareness.

V5 Systems solutions also include:

  • Surveillance and license-plate reading utilizing HD video
  • Acoustic detection that today, isolates the sound of a gunshot and relays information within seconds – directly to staff
  • Real-time edge analytics to detect people and vehicles in defined zones

Each solution is self-powered via a combination of bullet-resistant proprietary solar panels and battery management system, weighing 25 pounds to provide portable security in under 30 minutes per unit sans the need for trenching or wiring.

San Francisco elected a new mayor this year, Mayor London Breed, who is tasked with a mandate to restore and revitalize a city that has been a flashpoint for inequality and uneven growth. As Ellis explained, the Moscone Center has a working relationship with the local homeless population, and V5's technology is intended to respect and protect them as well, while maintaining a sustainable business flow that can fuel the city's programs to eradicate homelessness and improve quality of life for everyone. San Francisco is not the only city to realize that safer conference venues drive flourishing economies. Across the nation, cities seek to build a more verdant future for residents by investing in new, smart technology.

"We're in a high foot-traffic area," reiterated Ellis. "We want attendees to be safe everywhere. The V5 units give us the flexibility to easily reposition and monitor trouble spots. It allows for a wise use of resources that keeps us from becoming heavy handed with our local homeless population. It benefits everyone."   

About V5 Systems

V5 Systems is a California-based technology company that provides leading-edge portable, wireless, self-powered security solutions for Industrial IoT applications. They deliver turnkey video surveillance and gunshot detection solutions that can be deployed in under 30 minutes per unit, while the computing platform itself can act as a host for 3rd party hardware and software integration. These solutions utilize a proprietary power management system which eliminates the need for fixed power and hard-wired communications. V5 Systems develops and optimizes all software and AI analytics to run at the edge, which is instrumental to delivering real-time information to its users. Working with state and local government, education and private enterprises, V5 Systems delivers a next-generation security platform for the Industrial IoT.

SHAW AFB, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hunt Southern Group, a Hunt Military Community, in tandem with its military partner, Shaw Air Force Base, is pleased to announce its collaboration with Duke Energy and Hunt affiliate, Hunt Alternative Energy Investments, installing solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on more than 280 homes. In all, 284 homes have received 5,865 solar panels, helping to offset approximately 40 percent of the total annual electrical consumption at Shaw Military Housing.

“We couldn’t be more excited about this innovative project at Shaw Air Force Base,” said John Hoyt, Hunt Military Communities Vice President. “Installing these solar panels will not only reduce our dependence on foreign fuels, but will allow us to save money in utilities, money which will be directly reinvested back into housing. This is definitely a win-win situation.”

In all, solar energy production at Shaw Military Housing will equate to approximately 2.4 Million kilowatt hours (kWh) per year. That amount is equivalent to removing nearly 400 cars a year or 648 tons of waste recycled.

The PV project at Shaw Air Force Base is another success resulting from the collaborative landmark legislation passed by South Carolina’s General Assembly in 2014, commonly known as Act 236. The law provided a framework for customers to install solar on their homes and businesses through strategic programs like the net metering incentive and rebate offerings. As a result, South Carolina is one of the country’s greatest success stories for renewable energy.

“This is part of our ongoing effort to support the US Air Force in meeting its long-term energy goals across the country,” explained Abe Weiner, Hunt Alternative Energy Investments. “Working closely with the Air Force, Hunt Military Communities, Duke Energy and our funding partners, the Shaw Solar project exemplifies how public-private partnerships are able to greatly enhance energy sustainability and resiliency.”

Duke Energy’s Solar Rebate Program helped with the costs of the Shaw project and has provided more than $50 million in rebates as an extra incentive for customers who wanted to go solar across its South Carolina footprint.

“We are proud to be the energy provider for Shaw Air Force Base and Hunt and support growing solar energy in South Carolina through our Solar Rebate Program,” said Kodwo Ghartey-Tagoe, Duke Energy’s South Carolina state president. “The new panels will bring economic and environment benefits to the base, its families, and South Carolina – which is exactly what we envisioned from Act 236 and what we want to continue in the state going forward."

Shaw Air Force Base joins one of more than a dozen military privatized housing developments throughout the nation to add solar paneling to its homes.

"Here at Shaw, it is our priority to take action in improving our environmental impact," said Colonel Derek O'Malley, 20th Fighter Wing commander. “We are committed to doing our part in the movement towards energy conservation and anticipate that the installation of these solar panels in base housing will be beneficial not only to our residents, but also the Sumter community as a whole."

The Department of Defense is the nation’s largest energy user and is focused on reducing energy demand through programs like The Air Force Energy Plan. The plan is focused on developing and utilizing renewable and alternative energy wherever possible as well as changing the user’s culture by increasing energy awareness in day-to-day operations.

PALM BEACH, Florida, October 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

FN Media Group Presents Microsmallcap.com Market Commentary 

Vanadium is the latest super metal that could serve as the cornerstone of a disruptive new trend: electrical energy storage. Resource companies such as United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) have begun to target this trend, opting to develop a vanadium project in Wray Mesa, Colorado. The company also has a footprint in uranium mining, a space that includes miners such as Ivanhoe Mines (TSX: IVN) (OTC: IVPAF) and Largo Resources (TSX: LGO) (OTC: LGORF). Other players in the vanadium space include Clean TeQ (TSX: CLQ) (OTC: CTEQF) and mining giant Glencore PLC (OTC: GLNCY).

For miners such as United Battery Metals (OTCPK:UBMCF) (CSE:UBM), the vanadium opportunity could be one to watch out for. Vanadium has several practical applications, including uses in solar, wind, grid power storage, and the production of steel rebar. Vanadium is crucial to the U.S. for its domestic steel production which has been jumpstarted since the Trump administration was elected. With U.S. Steel and other major steel companies opening new projects and canceling previous closures, the nation's producers could require a serious amount of vanadium to strengthen their steel products.

Vanadium is one of the 35 elements the U.S. government has deemed critical to the world's largest economy and national security, which could expedite UBM's Wray Mesa project located in Colorado to go into possible production. As the trade war with China intensifies, it could become crucial for America to secure a domestic supply of vanadium and focus on putting mines into production, a move the U.S. administration is expected to support. Vanadium's many use cases have helped drive the price of V2O5 vanadium pentoxide flake 98%, a common form of vanadium, up 400% over the last three years.

With transportation battery demand expected to jump 40-fold by 2040, vanadium could be poised for significant inroads in the EV market. All those new EVs on the road could require charging stations to "fuel up", and vanadium redox batteries offer a perfect solution as VRB's can simultaneously charge 50 cars at a time.

As battery demand increases the demand for vanadium could follow a similar trend, posing a potential supply crunch as more nations adopt alternative energy policies that move away from fossil fuels. That move could potentially bode well for vanadium miners such as United Battery Metals (OTCPK:UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) who is sitting on a large vanadium-rich land package.

VRBs can be also used in power stations to charge electric vehicles. Just as gas stations have become an integral part of U.S. automotive history, so too could VRB charging stations become an essential component to electric vehicle infrastructure.

Although vanadium is essential to everyday economic and national security functions in the U.S., the country is not a major producer of the mineral. In fact, United Battery Metals (OTCPK:UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) is on track to potentially become North America's lone active vanadium producer.

The Vanadium Revolution Is Here  

Vanadium appears that it could become an important part of the global energy storage revolution, which could compel other miners including Clean TeQ (TSX: CLQ) (OTCQX:CTEQF) and Glencore PLC (OTCPK:GLNCY) to carve out their own vanadium footprints. Market forces are already at work with vanadium, stoking rapid price appreciation of the element on the spot market. Energy storage is a booming industry, with one estimate indicating energy storage in the U.S. alone is poised to surge to 720 megawatts by 2020, up from 120 megawatts in 2014.

California has recently announced that by 2020 all homes and mid-rises will be required to install solar panels. It is here that VRBs can play a part. The ability to store power from low usage periods and spill it back into the grid during peak demand periods makes VRBs a far superior choice for large-scale energy storage than lithium-ion batteries. Experts predict that it is just a matter of time before this law will be adopted nationwide. Regulations such as these could become a big driver for vanadium demand in the United States, a country in desperate need of a domestic resource.

The vanadium redox battery (VRB) is the optimal choice for electrical storage systems, smart grids, and remote power stations. For applications including power quality control, emergency power, backup power, and stabilization of renewable energy, VRBs offer a potentially superior alternative to the lithium-ion batteries that grew to prominence in the first wave of electrical storage and EV adoption.

"Vanadium could become a vital ingredient in large clean-energy batteries, in which case it will shine a lot brighter," according to The Economist. "Its price has already been rising faster than cobalt, copper, and nickel, all of which are used in lithium-ion batteries."

Miners that are focusing on vanadium, including United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM), could be ideally positioned to exploit rapid growth in this market. The global vanadium market is expected to notch a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.2% from 2017 through 2027, according to Mining Weekly.

Stored electrical systems could become a major driver of vanadium demand. These systems offer advantages over traditional power sources, including environmental benefits, lower costs, and superior reliability. According to analysis by Report Buyer, the global advanced energy storage market is predicted "to grow with a CAGR of 5.9% over the forecast period of 2018-2024." The potential growth of the energy storage market could be a massive opportunity for a vanadium miner such as United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) that is capable of meeting demand.

United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) is the first mover in the North American vanadium industry with a head start in the race to meet increasing VRB demand. Over the past six years, over 70 VRB-related projects in 11 countries have popped up.

Drilling Down On The Vanadium Opportunity 

Mining is a global business. For example, major companies such as Ivanhoe Mines (TSX: IVN) (OTCQX:IVPAF) and Largo Resources (TSX: LGO) (OTCQX:LGORF) often depend on countries far from their home domiciles as primary production points. Currently, the bulk of the world's vanadium production is occurring outside of North America. North America represented just 3% of global vanadium output in 2017, meaning there is a massive opportunity for the next American vanadium company capable of graduating to production.

United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) is leading the charge to tap North American vanadium reserves, which is a welcome development considering the U.S. government has declared vanadium to be essential to national security. Today the world's top two vanadium producers are China and Russia (almost two-thirds of global output in 2017), neither of which are going to prioritize U.S. interests.

With the U.S. currently importing 100% of its consumed vanadium, domestic projects targeting this essential mineral are taking on added importance. That includes United Battery Metals' (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) Wray Mesa project in Montrose County, Colorado.

Approximately 240 miles southwest of Denver, Wray Mesa is home to 108 contiguous land claims spanning 3000 acres. Wray Mesa's location is enviable as it is accessible from multiple interstate highways via Colorado or Utah and includes municipal water access from only 6 miles away. The property was previously mined for uranium, most recently in the late 1970s and early 1980s, meaning there is still potential for United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) to make further vanadium discoveries on the property.

The Future Of Energy Storage  

Vanadium is rapidly becoming a credible competitor to lithium-ion in the booming stationary storage market. By 2028, a quarter of the world's stationary storage devices could be powered by VRBs. Last year 17% of all power generated in the U.S. was via renewable sources, a number that is expected to grow in the years ahead as states such as California and Hawaii aim to generate 100% of their power from renewables.

With vanadium becoming an essential part of North America's economic and renewable energy futures, companies with quality assets could stand to benefit. In the United States, United Battery Metals' (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) Wray Mesa project could be optimally positioned as vanadium buyers look to minimize transportation costs and the risks associated with doing business with Chinese and Russian miners.

The appetite for renewable energy in the U.S., whether for storage systems or vehicles, is robust and getting stronger. With vanadium prices currently at a 13-year high, the market appears to be waking up to the next battery revolution. These market conditions could potentially set the stage for a miner such as United Battery Metals (OTC: UBMCF) (CSE:UBM) to capitalize on the vanadium trend, providing America with the vanadium it needs for years to come.
