New report says installed solar capacity worldwide could hit 1.3TW by 2023

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:The global PV market is forecast to see a 25% increase in new deployments this year, according to the Global Market Outlook for Solar Power published by SolarPower Europe.According to the Medium Scenario presented in the report, which the association sees as the most likely outcome, new global capacity additions will reach 128 GW this year, up from 102.4 GW in 2018. China is still expected to be the largest market with around 43 GW and the authors of the report claim that the Chinese government is now acting faster than previously anticipated with the restructuring of its incentive scheme for solar. They say that this could lead to sustained growth, despite the weak numbers for new solar deployments that have already been announced this year.Under the Medium Scenario, the U.S. and India are expected to install more than 10 GW this year — 11.8 GW and 12.9 GW, respectively. Europe is forecast to install approximately 20.4 GW of new solar in 2019, which would represent an 80% increase from the 11.3 GW the Old Continent added last year.“2018 was a unique year for the entire global solar industry, as we exceeded the magic installation mark of 100 GW per year for the first time, which led the solar power sector to grow to over 500 GW or 0.5 TW (terawatt),” says the association’s president, Christian Westermeier.SolarPower Europe’s Medium Scenario also envisages that global solar demand could grow by 12% year on year to 144 GW in 2020. In the following three years, new additions could reach 158 GW (+10%), 169 GW (+7%), and 180 GW (+6%), respectively. If those numbers are achieved, the world’s cumulative installed PV capacity would increase from around 600 GW at the end of this year to 900 GW in 2021, 1.1 TW in 2022 and about 1.3 TW by the end of 2023.More: Global cumulative PV capacity may reach 1.3 TW in 2023, SolarPower Europe says New report says installed solar capacity worldwide could hit 1.3TW by 2023last_img read more

PNP-CIDG files criminal charges vs Albayalde

first_img Panelo said the President would still wait for the findings of the Department of the Interior and Local Government’s (DILG) own probe into the 2013 ninja cops scandal involving Albayalde’s men. MANILA – Former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief General Oscar Albayalde was included in the complaint filed against 13 Pampanga “ninja cops,” or policemen who allegedly resell illegal drugs seized from operations. Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo, meanwhile, said that Malacañang will not yet pass judgment on Albayalde and will leave it to prosecutors to assess if he should be charged. In an amended referral complaint filed by the PNP-Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) before the Department of Justice on Monday, the respondents were charged with graft, qualified bribery, falsification of public documents, dereliction of duty, and violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act. “Whether they are guilty or not is up to the courts, assuming it passes the prosecutors’ level,” he added. “If there are charges, they should file it. There will be a trial in the courts if it passes the level of the one investigating in the prosecution department.” The CIDG also presented new witnesses, including barangay officials from Mexico town, while the result of the Senate investigation into the issue, which found the respondents liable for drug and graft charges, was also submitted.center_img The “ninja cops,” led by then Superintendent Rodney Baloyo, allegedly took off with some 160 kilograms of shabu following a 2013 anti-drug operation on alleged Chinese drug lord Johnson Lee in Mexico, Pampanga. “Whatever the findings, the recommendation is up to them [the Senate]. But whether or not the cases will be filed and the nature of the case filed against them, will be the discretion of the prosecutors who will assess the evidence,” Panelo said. Albayalde, a former Pampanga police chief, was charged along with 13 of his former subordinates as they allegedly made off with some P648 million worth of shabu from the said drug raid six years ago. “He will act on the recommendation of DILG secretary (Eduardo Año) on his investigation. He said he will not interfere with the Senate investigation and that he will wait for the DILG investigation since the PNP is under the DILG,” he said./PNlast_img read more

Women of Troy nab fourth-place finish behind Buckley

first_imgThe USC women’s cross-country team competed in its final non-championship race of the season, finishing fourth at the 2011 Cal State Fullerton Titan Invitational. The 5K course wound around the Cal State Fullerton campus, resulting in a flat, fast race.The team, consisting of only seven of USC’s runners, finished behind Cal State San Marcos, UCLA and UC Santa Barbara for a total time of 1:33:42.00, or an 18:44.40 average.Junior Shelby Buckley led the team with a fifth-place finish and a time of 17:43.8, setting her collegiate 5K personal record.“[Buckley] competed very well and her racing instincts seem to be coming back,” USC coach Tom Walsh said. “This will help her mentally and physically as we head to Tempe next week for the Pac-12 championships.”The next USC runner to cross the finish line was junior Kelly Owen in 24th place with 18:32.3, only a few seconds off her personal record set at last year’s Titan Invitational. Owen was followed closely by freshman Austin Lundin with a time of 18:39.2, another personal best. Junior Jessica Lundin finished in 36th, followed by freshman Erin Matranga in 38th. Rounding out the USC team were sophomore Anna Burger, with a 20:03.3 time in 46th place and sophomore Francesca Adamski, placing 55th with 20:51.5.“Kelly Owen and Austin Lundin both had excellent races,” Walsh said. “Owen passed five girls in the last 150 meters to finish up a strong race. Lundin really pushed the last mile of the race.”Owen, typically seen as a middle-distance runner, has performed well in this season’s long-distance cross-country races. Her impressive results in 5K and 6K races this season have made her a valuable asset to the team. Freshman Austin Lundin also shattered her previous personal best of 19:25.0.The Titan Invitational was the last for all runners except Buckley, who will compete next weekend at the Pac-12 championships in Tempe, Ariz. The seven girls entered in that race are Buckley, freshmen Erica Capellino, Kira Soderstrom, Erin Robinson and Shannon Byrne, sophomore Jaclyn Walles and redshirt freshman Katie DeYoung.“Everything is on target for this team to run its best race of the season next week at the Pac-12 championships,” Walsh said.last_img read more
