Eskom must feed available power into the grid, says RE sector

As the country’s plunged into unprecedented Stage 6 power cuts for the first time, implemented by Eskom from 18:00 on 11 December, the South African Wind Energy Association (SAWEA) has called for immediate release of available wind power into the national grid. Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA SAWEA views loadshedding as a clear symptom of Eskom fleet’s reduced electricity availability factor, which indicates an urgent need to procure new generation capacity in order to bring the available factor to healthy levels again. Meanwhile, the South African Photovoltaic Industry Association (SAPVIA) believes that small-scale embedded generation is key to rapidly expanding electricity generation capacity. If the restrictions were lifted, government could buy that additional energy at a tariff it was prepared to pay, stated SAWEA. In any case, this is surplus energy that can be bought at marginal cost, as low as R0.40c per kWh. Featured image: Stock In addition to permitting additional wind power into the grid,SAWEA suggests that the government allow the industry to fast-track wind farmsthat are currently under construction, meaning that they can provide power thatis being produced to Eskom, before their agreed commercial operations date. This ‘early generation‘ electricity can be sold to Eskom at a rate approximately 40% cheaper than the agreed tariff, ensuring that the much-needed electricity is fed into the grid much earlier than anticipated and achieve short term savings for government/Eskom. Read more on Stage 6 loadshedding-“no cause for alarm” However, this may not be fast enough to close the short-term capacity challenge highlighted by the Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy recently, which is why the industry is posing short term solutions while the industry waits for the green light to start constructing new wind farms. While the IRP 2019 has identified small scale generation as the means to bridging the gap, SAPVIA states that the bureaucracy associated with the licencing and registration of embedded generation facilities will hamper the rapid absorption of this much-needed supply source into the generation mix. “The operational wind energy plants have excess capacity of about500MW available immediately. These can also be short term contracts that can besigned in this interim capacity constraint period and it doesn’t have to beviewed as long term commitments,” explained Ntombifuthi Ntuli, CEO of SAWEA. Generation According to the association, 2,000MW ofthis small-scale capacity can be added to the energy mix over the next twelvemonths. While facilitiesgenerating less than 1MW only require municipal or Eskom technical sign-off tosupply their owners or feed into the grid, facilities above 1MW a still need to undergo the strenuous NERSA licencing process, whichcan take between 9 months to 1 year to run its course, before the facilitiescan be commissioned. Ease licencing restrictions on embedded generation In a statement, SAPVIA said: “We urge the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy to swiftly implement any of the legislative or regulatory changes that would be required to allow generators of less than 10MW to generate without undergoing the arduous NERSA licencing process.” Sign up for the ESI Africa newsletter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Currently wind farms can only export the pre-agreed maximum capacity into the grid and forced to curtail any additional capacity.

Tanvir ready for another Hero CPL season

first_imgLeft-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir has been retained by the Guyana Amazon Warriors for this year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL). This will be the Pakistan all-rounder’s third season with the franchise after he was selected in the US$160,000 salary bracket. Tanvir, also an explosive batsman, says he is looking forward to his third year with the team. “I played the last two seasons with them and I enjoyed my time with them,” he said. “We have got good communication and good relationships with the management and the owner. We don’t have big names in the team – even last year we didn’t have big names – but the reason we do well is that we gel very well and play as a team.”The Amazon Warriors have come close to winning the Hero CPL, making the knockout stages in each of the previous five editions of the tournament, including three appearances in the final. Tanvir feels the team have not handled pressure situations well enough in the last two years, which has prevented them from going all the way.“My feeling is maybe we panic when it comes to crucial stages,” conceded the all-rounder. “Maybe because we don’t have enough experience in our dugout in terms of our playing XI. Yes, we don’t have big names but we play as a team. But on the other hand, with lack of experience, that’s what happens sometimes. Players get under pressure. “I still remember a game against Trinidad [when] we dropped too many catches – otherwise we would have won that game. In 2016, we were cruising until the final. We were playing great cricket, but in the final again I think it was panic or a lack of experience. But I think we have the capability and we will try to win it this time somehow. We have to try to give something to Guyana.”Tanvir finished as the leading wicket-taker in the 2017 tournament, and his five wickets for just three runs against Barbados was the best bowling performance of last year’s event. He says everything just clicked for him that night at the Kensington Oval.“Well, to be honest, at the early part of the tournament I was struggling a bit with my back,” he recalled. “I didn’t do well in Florida and the first couple of games but I knew I had the ability. I have done it in the past many times, so I was waiting for my moment. “As a bowler or a batsman, when you are out of form you only need one good innings or spell. That’s what happened. It was the game before, when we played against Barbados in Guyana – that was the turning moment when I got some confidence back. My back injury was sorted, I was running in well, got three or four wickets and I scored some runs [too]. I think that was the turning point for me and for my team because at that time we had only one win out of five and we had to win the last four games out of five.“Coming back to the Barbados game, the day before I looked at the pitch and there was a greyish look. That means the moisture was there and I told my teammates that tomorrow is going to be my day. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it to be 5/3 but I knew the ball would do something. When it’s swinging I know I have that strength to do well against any batsman.“I played alongside Eoin Morgan at the T10 tournament. He mentioned to me that if you bowled this ball to any left-hand batsman you will get him out nine times out of ten. That was one of the days that comes hardly once or twice in your life – when everything goes well.” (Courtesy CPL)last_img read more

NCAA president says association won’t push ACC on NC law

first_imgIn this March 31, 2016, file photo, NCAA President Mark Emmert answers questions during a news conference at the men’s NCAA Final Four of the NCAA college basketball tournament in Houston. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)NCAA President Mark Emmert says it is up to the Atlantic Coast Conference to decide whether it wants to follow the association’s lead and pull events out of North Carolina because of a state law that limits anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people.In an interview Tuesday with The Associated Press, Emmert said the association expects to take a financial hit for moving seven championship events and tournament games out of the state on short notice, but how much is unknown.New locations have yet to be identified, he said, but Emmert said his staff is working aggressively to find sites for some events scheduled for as soon as December. The biggest of the events that will be relocated is first-round men’s basketball tournament games scheduled for Greensboro in March.The ACC is also on the clock to make its decision about its football championship game, set to be played in Charlotte on Dec. 3.The ACC’s council of presidents was set to hold a previously scheduled meeting starting Tuesday night in Clemson, South Carolina, with the law expected to be discussed Wednesday.The football championship game, held in Charlotte since 2010, is the last marquee college sporting event left in North Carolina during the 2016-17 season. While ACC Commissioner John Swofford it would be “premature” to make any decisions about holding events in North Carolina for now, he also issued a clear statement Monday night against the law.“On a personal note, it’s time for this bill to be repealed as it’s counter to basic human rights,” said Swofford, whose league office is located in North Carolina.Georgia Tech President Bud Peterson, whose school is a member of the ACC, is the newly elected chairman of the NCAA board of governors, which unanimously voted to relocate the association’s events out of North Carolina.Emmert said the NCAA will stay out of conference decisions.“That’s going to be completely up to the conferences,” Emmert said. “There’s, of course, Division II and III conferences that have a lot of events in North Carolina as well. They’ll have plenty of people involved in the debate that were also engaged with the NCAA. But those are going to be individual decisions, not national association’s. Nor should they be.”In a news release Monday, the NCAA said the decision by its board of governors came “because of the cumulative actions taken by the state concerning civil rights protections.”The law — known as HB2 — requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates. It also excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide antidiscrimination protections.HB2 was signed into law by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory earlier this year. A spokesman with McCrory’s office couldn’t be reached for comment Monday evening, but a spokeswoman with the state Republican party blasted the NCAA’s decision in a statement, saying it is “so absurd it’s almost comical.”“I wish the NCAA was this concerned about the women who were raped at Baylor,” spokeswoman Kami Mueller said.Emmert told the AP the two issues are not related.“This is an issue in the midst of a political season that is clearly going to stir a lot of debate and discussion on both sides of the issue,” he said. “The decision, of course, occurred completely independent of what kind of year it was around politics. Obviously, this is in no way correlated to what is obviously a very serious issue around sexual assault and sexual misconduct on university campuses.”The only championship events that can be hosted in North Carolina this academic year are ones determined when a team earns the right to play on its own campus.In its announcement, the NCAA took special note of ways North Carolina’s law differs from other states.“At the end of the day, the board was looking at the core values of college sports in America,” Emmert told the AP. “That these are about sports that are conducted within the context of higher education and the values of fairness of inclusion are so central to what we all believe in, that the law HB2 that was passed as the most comprehensive of the laws that have been enacted around limiting LGBT rights, was just a bridge too far.“It would have been impossible to conduct championship events in the state with that law in place that lived up to the values and expectations of the member universities and colleges.”___AP Sports Writer Aaron Beard in Raleigh, North Carolina, contributed to this report.last_img read more

FIFA World Cup 2018: Previewing the Quarterfinal match-ups and beyond (Part 2)

first_imgAdvertisement lwNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs7oWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E438e( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) ze1eWould you ever consider trying this?😱Can your students do this? 🌚bufxRoller skating! Powered by Firework (from L to R) Luka Modric(Croatia), Kylian Mbappe(France), Harry Kane(England) and Neymar Jr.(Brazil).This world cup has been a pretty interesting one so far considering that the big teams like Argentina, Portugal and defending champions Germany have all exited the tournament.Advertisement Though some of the G.O.A.Ts like Cristiano Ronaldo, Thomas Mueller and Lionel Messi have exited the tournament we still have some players to look forward to.Keeping that in mind, we have compiled a who’s who of players to watch out for in the 2nd day of the quarter-finals. You can read the 1st part here. So, without further ado here’s the preview.Advertisement The first match of the day: Sweden vs England (Samara Arena) Advertisement This is the 24th meeting between the two sides, who have an even head-to-head record with seven wins apiece and nine draws. The last time they met in 2012, Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted four goals for Sweden.Sweden have proved it possible that they can advance without Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the World Cup as they have qualified for the first time since 1994. Wile their performance hasn’t been that much sensational or awe-inspiring they have proved their mettle and have shown that they can hold their ground. Their captain Andreas Granqvist so far has been their best weapon.England return to the quarter-finals of a World Cup after losing to a penalty-shootout to Portugal in 2006. They broke their curse of penalties when their goalkeeper Jordan Pickford lead them to the quarter-finals by saving Colombia’s penalty shots. Their captain, Harry Kane has been in tremendous form and is in contention for the Golden Boot award with six goals to his name. Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have also proved their mettle on the field considering that it is their first World Cup. This squad of youngsters and newcomers is also considered as a ‘dark horse’ like the other favourite, Belgium.Predictions: I have to go with England on this as they have the better squad on paper and is most likely to stop the Swedes on their track considering they don’t give any openings to Sweden.  Second match: Russia vs Croatia (Fisht Stadium) Who’s the better no. 10?Russia return to the quarter-finals for the first time since 1970, when the Soviet Union lost 1-0 to Uruguay whereas Croatia have not reached the last eight for 20 years.This is the fourth meeting between the pair, who fought out two 0-0 draws in qualifying for the UEFA European Championship 2008, before Croatia earned a 3-1 friendly win in Rostov-on-Don in November 2015.The Croats are on a four-match unbeaten run in the World Cup, their longest in the competition, consisting of three wins and a draw.For the hosts Russia, Fyodor Smolov and Denis Cheryshev can be their trump cards as they can likely pose a threat to the Croatian defence. Their exceptional performance in the World Cup has been admired by many. However, Croatia’s Danijel Subasic is a force to be reckoned with as his saves in the penalty-shootout against Denmark was crucial in helping them advance to the quarter-finals. Likewise, Russia’s veteran goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev won hearts when he double-saved the penalties of Spain’s Andres Iniesta and Iago Aspas in their round-of-16 match.Croatia have displayed a dominant performance in this World Cup. They remained unbeaten in their group stage matches and their 3-0 thrashing of Argentina awed spectators all over the world. With a mid-field that comprises of Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic, Real Madrid’s Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic along with Barcelona’s Ivan Rakitic and Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic on the front they pose a threat to any opponent defences. However, what they lack in the defence department they can make it up with Danijel Subasic in the net.Predictions: I would say that Croatia slightly edges over Russia given their dominant performance in the tournament and also they have a better-balanced side. However, Russia can also pull a miracle given that they are the host nation and will obviously have the home team advantage. Read also: Football : Leicester’s Jamie Vardy remains a major doubt for the rest of the tournament.Football: Real Madrid sign young full-back, Alvaro Odriozola   Advertisementlast_img read more

Two Irish Crews through to Semi-finals at World Rowing Junior Championships

first_imgIreland had an exciting start to the day at the World Rowing Junior Championships in Racice, Czech Republic today (Friday) with a second boat qualifying for tomorrow’s semi-finals. The pair took to the water for their repechage against France, Hungary, Serbia and Slovenia in a five-boat race that would see the first three boats qualify.Slovenia took an early lead but stalled in what were choppy conditions after 500m, allowing France to move ahead into first place. Hungary followed suit and Ireland moved up from fourth to third position, passing the Slovenian crew and leaving open water behind them to secure the third qualifying place ahead of Slovenia and Serbia. The Irish JW2- will compete in the A/B semi-final tomorrow morning, Saturday.Next up for Ireland was the junior men’s quad who had also placed fourth in their heat yesterday. The boat, stroked by Carlow’s Jack Keating, with Shandon crewmates Jack Dorney, Alex Byrne and Luke Hayes-Nally faced a six boat repechage in which only the top two boats would qualify for the A/B semi-final.The boys pushed off the start impressively moving straight into third place, a position they held throughout the remainder of the race, with Chile taking the lead at 1,000m and Denmark following close behind. Denmark soon challenged to move into the lead and made waves by setting a new world junior record in the category with a finishing time of 05:52.450. The previous world best time which had been held for the last six years was 05.52.96. The Irish boat just failed to catch the Chilean crew and missed out on qualifying for the A/B semi-final by 2 seconds. They will race again in the C/D semi-finals tomorrow morning (Saturday).The final race of the morning for Ireland was another incredibly tight battle that saw the junior women’s double scull of Workmen’s oarswomen, Ciara Moynihan and Ciara Browne, row fiercely down the 2,000 metre course.The Irish double raced in a tightly packed field against GB, Japan and Austria, vying with the three other boats for a qualifying place. Austria took the lead up to the 500m mark before being challenged by Japan who were later overtaken by GB. With less than a length separating all four boats, Ireland moved up into third place and began to overlap with Japan, challenging for a qualifying spot. A strong sprint for the finish saw the Irish boat motor through the last 200m, rating at 37 strokes per minute only to be pipped at the line by Japan who finished less than one second ahead of the Irish boat. The Irish JW2x will race again tomorrow morning in the C/D semi-final.Tomorrow, Saturday will see Ireland compete in two A/B semi-finals (JM4+ and JW2-) and two C/D semi-finals (JM4x and JW2x). Exact race times will be available on the Rowing Ireland website later today.For more info on how to follow the event visit: http://www.worldrowing.com/news/how-follow-2018-world-rowing-junior-championshipsprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Fermoy oarswomen Gill McGirr and Ellie O’Reilly were given another chance to secure a semi-final place in the junior women’s pair category after coming fourth in their heat yesterday and they seized the opportunity, bow on.last_img read more

Court Snubs Urey, Cllr. Dunbar’s Appeal

first_imgAn appeal to have charges dropped against two ex-senior officials of the National Oil Company of Liberia (NOCAL) was yesterday denied by the Criminal Court ‘C.’Defendants Clemenceau Urey, former chairman, Board of Directors of NOCAL and Cllr. Stephen Dunbar former member, Board of Directors, were among eight other senior officials of NOCAL that were jointly indicted for the commission of economic sabotage.But lawyers representing Urey and Dunbar were pushing for the charges to be dropped against them, on grounds that the state failed to commence prosecution within five years, as mandated by Section 4.2 (a) of the Criminal Procedural Law.They were initially indicted in 2014, with economic sabotage, bribery and criminal conspiracy by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission.Their lawyers further contended that they should not be tried because their prosecution is barred by what they considered as a “statute of limitation”.However, the prosecution in counter argument appealed to the court to deny and dismiss the request and that the trial must proceed on its merit.They were charged May 2006 to May 2007 in connection with their alleged involvement in a US$40,000 bribe, offered to members of the 52nd House of Representatives as “lobby” fees.At yesterday’s hearing, none of the accused, including Urey and Dunbar was at the Temple of Justice, but Judge Peter W. Gbeneweleh went ahead to deny their request.Judge Gbeneweleh stated, “We are in agreement with the contention of the prosecution that this court cannot determine the issue of statute of limitation raised by the defendants, who have not been granted severance (separate trial) from the rest of the eight co-defendants.”He explained that the defendants and the rest of the other co-defendants were jointly indicted.“The records before the court revealed that they did not file a motion for severance (separate trial) from the rest of the other eight co-defendants, before filling their motion to dismiss the indictment on grounds that their prosecution is barred by statute of limitation,” he further clarified.“In fact the determination will definitely have an effect on the other co-defendants, since ten of them were jointly indicted and charged for the commission of the crimes,” he said.In his conclusion, Judge Gbeneweleh declared, “Prosecution’s resistance is sustained, and the court is declined to determine the issue of statute of limitation and the motion to dismiss the indictment should be and the same is hereby denied and dismissed without prejudice to the defendants.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
