Companies see potential in using brownfield sites for new solar generation

first_imgCompanies see potential in using brownfield sites for new solar generation FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:For two decades, coal has been pulled from a Bent Mountain mine in eastern Kentucky. But in a startling move in the heart of coal country, a rival — solar — is preparing to move on to the land.From Appalachia in the U.S. to Queensland in Australia and Chernobyl in Ukraine, solar and wind farms are being developed or built in places not normally associated with clean energy, and in some regions long resistant to it.Slapping solar panels atop so-called brownfield sites, land that housed mines, emissions-belching power plants or were tarnished by nuclear disaster, can be cheaper than decontaminating the ground and turning it into parkland. At the same time, there’s the prospect of turning environmental foes into friends.“We’re essentially turning these drains on a community into an asset,” said Chad Farrell, chief executive officer of Encore Renewable Energy, a Vermont-based developer that’s contemplating installing solar arrays at coal-ash ponds across Appalachia. “You’re not going to get a large revenue-generating asset on a former landfill.”Solar is already established within the nuclear zone of Chernobyl, at a massive former coal-fired power plant in Canada, and at landfills and other brownfield sites throughout New England, where renewables are popular but land is at a premium. Meanwhile, BHP Group, the world’s biggest mining company, is working on permits and engineering plans to turn legacy sites in Arizona and New Mexico into solar and storage facilities.Regions long dependent on traditional energy sources for jobs and tax revenue are increasingly turning to solar and wind power, cementing their push into the mainstream at a time when the coal industry is ailing. U.S. power produced from burning coal shrank by 6.3 percent in 2018, as almost 13 gigawatts of coal plants were closed, according to BloombergNEF. That’s second only to 2015 when 15 gigawatts of coal-fired plants were shuttered.More: ‘Land no one else wants’ gets solar as coal, nukes fade awaylast_img read more

Wenger wants players pay lowered to tackle football’s virus fallout

first_imgArsene Wenger said on Friday football needs to tackle inflated player pay if it is to bounce back from the ravages of the coronavirus pandemic, saying “thousands” of clubs across Europe risk extinction. Arsene Wenger won three Premier League title as Arsenal boss Former Arsenal coach Wenger warned a reduction in wages was needed in the wake of the billions set to be lost due to the COVID-19 crisis, which forced the game into a months-long hiatus. “We calculate it here that overall football will lose 20 percent of its income. Football makes, say, 45 billion turnover in the world –- the loss will be 10 to 14 billion,” Wenger told beIN Sports. “If you look at the wages structure in most of the clubs it’s between 60 and 80 percent of the turnover. That means only the players wages can sort that problem out.” Wenger added the outbreak has made “the weak clubs weaker and the strong clubs stronger” and exposed how football “focussed on grouping the elite”. He said the sport would lose “thousands” of clubs “because there’s too many clubs in trouble, and there’s not enough money there to help them enough to survive”. Speaking about England, where he managed the Gunners for over two decades, Wenger said: “The Premier League will survive. I don’t worry for the Premier League. “Of 92 (professional league) clubs, you have 65 clubs who lose money and behind closed doors they open the stadium –- they lose money to play the game.

In France we created the concept of positive discrimination but that means you give positions to people because they’re not given enough chances –- but this is also discrimination because people who are better may not get the job,” said Wenger. “So you want people to give the same chances to everybody, no matter where you’re from or how you look, but as well, not to create another discrimination because of artificial solutions you want to find.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 “So it is where football has to re-think how we help these clubs to survive… Because we need an elite but we need as well a basis where young players have a chance to play and where we have to get these people to survive.” – ‘Anti-racist’ – Wenger also insisted football was “by essence anti-racist”, and the game was an “example of how the whole of society should work, because it’s only based on merit and quality”. On Tuesday ,England forward Raheem Stirling blasted the lack of black managers in football, and criticised the disparity between the number of high-profile Black, Asian and minority ethnic players and those who go on to hold coaching or administrative jobs.center_img Loading…last_img read more

Earl, Pavelski once again dominate scoring

first_imgAfter leading the team in scoring with more than 40 points each last season, forwards Robbie Earl and Joe Pavelski are at it again.Earl leads the team through the first four games with five points, one goal and four assists. Pavelski is not far behind, averaging one point a game with three goals and one assist.The impact of the line — consisting of Pavelski, Earl and team captain Adam Burish — was never more evident than last weekend. In the two games against St. Cloud, the three combined for two goals and five assists.”That whole line played well,” head coach Mike Eaves said at a Monday press conference. “If you’re going to be a good player at this level, you have to rely on the people you play with and they were pretty fun to watch.” In the Badgers’ 3-1 win Saturday night, Pavelski and Earl each notched a point in all three Badger goals.Earl and Pavelski both assisted on Ryan MacMurchy’s first period goal and Earl earned an assist on each of Pavelski’s two goals.Watch for that line to lead the Badgers — both scoring goals and opening opportunities for other lines — throughout the season.”They’ll make it easier for us,” Eaves said. “If we have all our lines firing, we can be as good as anybody. I think we’ll get to that point.”WCHA schedule puts UW at home early: For the second-straight season, the Badgers’ schedule has them at home in the early stages of Western Collegiate Hockey Association play.After a road series with St. Cloud last weekend, the home series with Alaska-Anchorage marks the beginning of a stretch that will see UW at home in three of the next four weekends.Wisconsin will host UAA before going on the road to North Dakota. That series will be their last road trip until Thanksgiving break.”Well, it’s pretty much been our course of scheduling for the last couple of years so we’re used to it,” Eaves said.Last year, the Badgers played four of their first six conference series at home, which helped them jump out to an early lead, before fizzling down the stretch. Wisconsin will see a similar stretch towards the end of this season, when four of its six series in January and February are on the road.But, similar to how the football team has to deal with not having a bye week until the end of the Big Ten season, the hockey team isn’t dwelling on the things it cannot control — which right now means winning at home and putting up early WCHA points.”We just have to control the things we can control,” Eaves said. “We want to win every game, but if you look at the big picture it is important to put those points in the barn early.”League-wide instant replay scheduled to begin: After experimenting with instant replay at Denver and Colorado College last season, the WCHA — and the NCAA — decided to implement it for the 2005-06 season.However, delays in getting the equipment delivered and set up at all WCHA arenas has postponed replay thus far. But the use of replay to confirm the scoring of controversial goals is scheduled to begin with WCHA action this weekend.”Last year with DU and CC having it, it proved to be an advantageous thing just because the fact that your getting the right calls,” Eaves said. “Now that everybody in the league will have it … in important situations, they’ll make the right calls, so I’m excited for it.”In other talks of changing rules, Eaves was asked if he ever expected the NCAA to institute a shootout, like the NHL has added at the end of overtimes to nix ties.”I think the fact remains, how does it affect RPI? Until they figure out how to get around that, I don’t think we’ll see it in the college game,” Eaves said.Wisconsin has played to three overtimes in just four games this season, tying once.last_img read more
