America installs 1.35 GW of solar PV in Q3 2014

first_imgAmerica installs 1.35 GW of solar PV in Q3 2014An impressive 41% growth during the quarter puts the U.S. on track to install 6.5 GW in 2014. Steady growth in the residential sector leads to over 300 MW installed. December 9, 2014 Christian Roselund Markets Markets & Policy Share Greentech Media Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) have released their quarterly U.S. Solar Market Insight report, finding 41% year-over-year growth in the third quarter of 2014 with 1.35 GW-DC installed.This is the second-largest quarter to date. In the first nine months of 2014 the United States has installed 3.96 GW, as the world’s third-largest solar PV market, with more than 1 GW installed each quarter.Q3 figures include 825 MW-DC in the utility-scale segment, which remains the largest market segment. Additionally, the U.S. residential market exceeded 300 MW for the first time ever. Residential installations have grown in 18 of the last 19 quarters.However, the nation’s commercial, government and non-profit installations fell sequentially. This segment, which the report lists as “non-residential”, has been more volatile than the residential market.SEIA and GTM’s numbers are in sharp contrast to those released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which reported only 130 MW-AC installed during the quarter. FERC traditionally has not counted residential and most commercial installations, however it is clear that the agency is also missing a number of utility-scale installations.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Audio recording emerges of ‘orchestra’ of crying children in migrant detention center

first_imgU.S. Customs and Border Protection(NEW YORK) — Young migrant children, fighting through tears, can be heard crying “Mami” and “Papa” in an eight-minute audio clip first obtained by ProPublica.The children are believed to be between 4 and 10 years of age, and they’re crying because their parents have been detained elsewhere after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, according to an activist who provided the recording.“Well, we have an orchestra here — what’s missing is a conductor,” said a male voice on the recording, someone believed to be a U.S. Border Patrol agent.One of the children heard on the recording is a 6-year-old girl from El Salvador begging a consulate official to let her call her aunt. She repeats the digits and announces, through tears: “My mommy says that I’ll go with my aunt, and that she’ll come to pick me up there as quickly as possible.”ProPublica caught up with the U.S.-based aunt — herself seeking asylum in the country — who confirmed that the little girl’s family paid $7,000 to a guide to smuggle them into Mexico and then the U.S.The call she received from her niece rendered her powerless, she told ProPublica.“Imagine getting a call from your 6-year-old niece,” she said. “She’s crying and begging me to go get her. She says, ‘I promise I’ll behave, but please get me out of here. I’m all alone.’”ProPublica reported that the girl and the rest of the wailing children heard on the audio hadn’t been at the facility a full 24 hours “so their distress at having been separated from their parents was still raw.” And while some officials were doling out snacks, the outlet claimed that many children “were inconsolable.”The recording was captured last week and given to Jennifer Harbury, a civil rights attorney who confirmed its authenticity to ABC News. She told ProPublica the person who made the recording was a client of hers who asked to remain anonymous because that person feared retribution. That person “heard the children’s weeping and crying, and was devastated by it.”Government statistics indicate that, so far, nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May.Melania Trump’s spokeswoman issued a statement after several days of images of crying children appearing on television and online saying that the first lady “hates to see children separated from their families,” and the president said on Friday: “I hate the children being taken away” before blaming those actions on Democrats and “their law.”There is no such law.“To a select few in the media, Congress and the advocacy community, I’d like to start with a message for you: This department will no longer stand by and watch you attack law enforcement for enforcing the laws passed by Congress,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Monday at the National Sheriffs’ Association in New Orleans. “We will not apologize for the job we do, for the job law enforcement does and for the job the American people expect us to do.”Those comments came a day after she said on Twitter: “We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”Attorney General Jeff Sessions has justified the fracturing of families by quoting The Bible.“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, ‘To obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for His purposes,’” he said last week.White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn’t directly defend Sessions’ quoting of the Bible, but suggested it’s religiously prudent to enforce the law.“I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law. That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible,” Sanders said. “It’s a moral policy to follow and enforce the law.”The president on Monday took a hardline on the border crisis during an announcement of a Space Force.“The United States,” he said, “will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility.”Save & CloseCopyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Eurogroup hardens stance against Greece

first_img“Europe will do its usual trick,” said Varoufakis. “It will pull a good agreement, or an honourable agreement, out of an impasse.”He added that he had “no doubt that there will be an agreement in the end”.Yet the Eurogroup is constrained legally and politically from striking a deal on Greece’s terms. The rules of the eurozone’s lending funds require loans to come attached with conditions, while the European Central Bank’s own lending rules differ according to whether a country is in a programme or not.Several of the finance ministers would need the approval of  their national parliaments to modify the terms of Greece’s programme. Others fear that making concessions to Greece would strengthen the hand of anti-austerity parties domestically. A meeting of eurozone finance ministers descended into an ugly stand-off tonight (16 February) between Greece and its eurozone creditors.Jeroen Dijsselboem, the finance minister of the Netherlands, who chairs meetings of the Eurogroup, issued Greece’s anti-bail-out government with an ultimatum: request an extension of the existing bail-out or exit the current bail-out at the end of the month without any financial assistance from the eurozone.That could present a major problem for Greece, whose revenues have shrunk dramatically following the victory of Syriza, an anti-austerity party, in January’s general elections. During a tour of European capitals, Tsipras and Varoufakis have garnered some expressions of sympathy, but no support for their demands.Much of that sympathy was lost last week when eurozone finance ministers convened in Brussels for an emergency meeting of the Eurogroup on Wednesday (11 February). Over five hours they negotiated a statement with Varoufakis, only for Tsipras to reject it because it included a reference to extending the existing bail-out memorandum while the two sides negotiate.“The memorandum no longer exists,” declared Tsipras in Brussels on Thursday (12 February). Yet in a meeting with Dijsselbloem he agreed that experts representing creditors and Greece should meet to present their respective programmes and find points of agreement.The conclusions of those discussions, which took place on Friday and Saturday (13 and 14 February) left the Eurogroup with a “slight sense of disappointment”, according to Dijsselbloem. He said that members had hoped that claims by Varoufakis that Syriza could agree with 70% of the reforms and conditions included in the bail-out memorandum would be substantiated, but they were not.Realising that no agreement on the substance of the programme would be possible before it expires at the end of the month, Greece’s creditors swiftly concluded today (16 February) that Greece should request an extension of the current programme.Such an extension, said Dijsselbloem, would be conditional on Greece committing itself, among other things, to maintaining reforms introduced as a a consequence of the bail-outs and giving an assurance that it intended to complete the programme. In exchange, the Eurogroup promised to accord Greece greater “flexibility”. Varoufakis’s interpretation of the situation was quite different. Speaking after the Eurogroup, he evoked an agreement between Dijsselbloem and Tsipras from Thursday that promised to explore common ground for a “new contract”, describing it as a “genuine breakthrough”.In line with that agreement, he said that Greece was on the point of signing up to a “loan extension” on the basis of a proposal presented to him by Moscovici, only for Dijsselbloem to present a different statement – one that was identical to the one rejected by Greece last Wednesday.It was impossible for Greece’s government to sign that agreement because “[Syriza] was elected to challenge the philosophy of the programne”. Extending it would be “absolutely incongruous” or an “act of subterfuge”. He also criticised Dijsselbloem for offering “flexibility” without specifying what measures it entailed.By contrast, he said, Greece could sign an agreement on the basis of the statement presented by Moscovici. In addition, the Greek government, said Varoufakis, would commit itself to honouring its debt and freezing its electoral programme, on condition that it did not have to implement any additional “recessionary measures”.EU officials insisted that Dijsselbloem’s statement was based on Moscovici’s and that any differences were only “minor”.Speaking to journalists afterwards, Varoufakis was at pains to insist that he was not playing games. He spoke of the government’s “infinite goodwill” and described the Eurogroup as having been conducted in a “collegial spirit”. Indeed, some fear that such a situation could force Greece out of the eurozone. Yet none of the members of the Eurogroup came to Greece’s defence.Following the meeting, the two sides swapped thinly-veiled accusations. Yanis Varoufakis, Greece’s finance minister, accused Dijsselbloem of reneging on an agreement struck on Thursday (12 February) with Alexis Tsipras, Greece’s prime minister, and suggested that Dijsselbloem has overruled a more conciliatory European Commission.Dijsselboem retorted that the Eurogroup had lost faith in the Greek government, while sources suggested that the Greek delegation was badly prepared, erratic and rambling.Pierre Moscovici, the European commissioner for economic and financial affairs, described the Greek government’s concerns as “phraseology” and pleaded for all sides to be “logical not ideological”.Chronicle of a deadlock foretoldSyriza, which leads Greece’s governing coalition, was elected on 25 January on the back of promises to tear up the bail-out memorandum and cut Greece’s debt-load of almost €320 billion, most of which is owed to other eurozone governments.last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Continues Rush Tributes, Welcomes Mike And Leni Stern At Beacon Theatre Night Two [Videos]

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee was back at the Beacon Theatre in New York City for their second performance in as many nights at the Manhattan theater on Saturday. The rock band’s ongoing New York City run charged into the snowy night with more tributes to late Rush drummer Neil Peart, along with some special guests who helped tear through a jazz classic.Related: Umphrey’s McGee Pays Tribute To Neil Peart At Beacon Theatre Night One [Photos/Video]Umphrey’s took the stage at the top of the nine o’clock hour to kick off Saturday’s show with the softer opening guitar lines of “End of the Road” from Jake Cinninger as the Americana-leaning instrumental eased the audience into a warm and dreamy start to night two at the Beacon. The music moved into another song rich in warm melodies with “1348” which featured some wonderful guitar play between Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss. The performance also featured some stellar lighting arrangements from the band’s new Lighting Director Ben Factor, who received another shoutout from the stage for the second night in a row.The music kept flowing strong without stopping as “Crucial Taunt” came next, which treated fans in attendance to some very impressive drum fills from Kris Myers. The band then took the audience through a funky but dark rendition of “Syncopated Strangers” which included another sonically expansive jam to match some impressive virtuosic guitar work from Cinninger. The music swelled into “Nothing Too Fancy” as Umphrey’s continued the loose theme of the first set going with the dreamy and futuristic instrumental. The song’s energy quickly picked up steam and turned the packed theater into a dance party worthy of Saturday night in New York City. The jam was long and took fans on a ride with high-intensity solos with softer-yet-firmly progressive explorations woven in. The extended jam also gave drummers Myers and Andy Farag a chance to showcase their own chemistry.The band returned to normal song structure with “Seasons” before closing the set with an exploratory and lovely take on Miles Davis‘ “It’s About That Time” which featured jazz-inspired sit-ins from Mike Stern and Leni Stern.Watch the first set sit-in from Mike and Leni Stern on the Miles Davis song from Saturday below.Umphrey’s McGee with Mike Stern & Leni Stern – “It’s About That Time” – 1/18/20[Video: The Savage Shiba]Umphrey’s wasted no time in bringing the audience back up to speed to start the second half of the show as the band continued their tributes to Neil Peart with an energizing Kris Myers-led cover of “Limelight”, which included an excellent guitar solo from Cinninger on the Rush classic. The entire audience could be heard singing along to the lyrics, “All the world’s indeed a stage/And we are merely players/Performers and portrayers.”Watch the second set-opening cover of “Limelight” from Saturday below. Umphrey’s New York City run comes to a close with a sold-out underplay at Brooklyn Bowl on Sunday.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Beacon Theatre | New York, NY | 1/18/20Set One: End of the Road > 1348 > Crucial Taunt, Syncopated Strangers > Nothing Too Fancy*, Seasons, It’s About That Time^ (Miles Davis cover)Set Two: Limelight$ (Rush cover), Der Bluten Kat > Higgins > Der Bluten Kat, Booth Love!, All In Time%Encore: Last Train Home > 1348Notes:* “Ain’t Talkin’ ’bout Love” by Van Halen tease from Jake^ w/ Mike Stern and Leni Stern on guitars$ Live debut, Dedicated to Neil Peart! with Jake on keys% “The Spirit of Radio” by Rush jam The second set rocked on with a lengthy jam on “Der Bluten Kat” which had some fun solo play between bassist Ryan Stasik and Myers. A rainbow color scheme of light filled the theater as the band moved into “Higgins” before returning to the high energy of “Der Bluten Kat” to close the two-song, three-part segue. A groovy “Booth Love” came next, which saw Cinninger ditch his guitar to join Joel Cummins on keys while Bayliss spent some time having fun with the phones of fans in the front row.Fan Favorite “All In Time” brought the second set to a close, but not before treating fans to a brief solo from Myers which quickly evolved into a rhythmic duet between himself and Farag. The band even hinted at more Rush with a “The Spirit of Radio” tease before the band brought the song and set to a close. The show came to an official end with an encore performance of “Last Train Home” which moved into the completion of “1348” to send fans home happy.Check out the video below to see some of that impressive lighting work from Saturday’s show below.last_img read more
