first_imgHanergy targets homeowners with residential thin-film productsThe move comes as Chinese PV group seeks to diversify sales — in 2013 and 2012, its parent company was its sole source of revenue. March 23, 2015 Edgar Meza Finance Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Hanergy Thin Film Power Group is making a concerted push into the Chinese residential market with a new thin-film rooftop solar power system and other products. The Chinese company, which released more than 20 residential products, has opened 60 retail stores and so-called “experience centers” across China as well as new online outlets, including hanergyshop.com. Liu Min, deputy chairman of Hangery ThinFilm Power Group and chairman and CEO of Hanergy Global Solar Power and Applications Group, said the implementation of the company’s “all-channel sales strategy” would accelerates the spread of thin-film solar power products for consumer use. The move comes as Hanergy seeks to diversify sales – in 2013 and 2012, its parent company was its sole source of revenue. While the group’s market value has more than doubled since January to about $36 billion, making it the best performer on the 125-company NYSE Bloomberg Global Solar Energy Index, its business has attracted increasing scrutiny from financial analysts who have sought to ascertain why the company’s shares have risen fivefold in the past year. The first 60 Hanergy thin-film flagship stores and experience centers in China are located in 21 provinces and cities, including Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenyang and Xi’an. Hanergy plans to expand its domestic presence to 300 experience centers by the end of 2015 and 1,500 in 2017.Hanergy’s experience centers currently exhibit and offer building-integrated PV products as well as thin-film solar products for residential, consumer and agricultural use, including the new residential system released at a launch event on Saturday. The company’s new residential rooftop power station is available in four models, 1.5 kW, 2 kW, 3 kW and 5kW. Each model offers two designs tailored for flat or slanted rooftops. Hanergy provides standardized one-stop services that include system design, grid connection application, components supply, site operation and data monitoring. The group said it was also introducing the residential systems in the United Kingdom and other European countries. In the U.K., furniture retailer IKEA began carrying Hanergy residential PV products in 2013. Hanergy has also expanded its residential systems into the Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland and other European markets. In China, Hanergy cooperated with the Yumen municipal government in Gansu province to build a distributed PV project in Dongqu Village. The project, which was completed in October, optimized dilapidated farm buildings by renovating them into apartment buildings equipped with Hanergy’s thin-film technology, allowing them to generate their own electricity and feed any surplus into the grid.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.

The full report on E.ON’s proposals for a Thames Cluster can be downloaded from www.eon-uk.com/generation/1784.aspx. Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR By chloecox – During the consultation process, E.ON will seek further clarity on issues such as the conditions of a new-build coal project, the funding mechanism for fitting CCS and the framework for associated CCS infrastructure. E.ON UK welcomed Wednesday’s launch of the UK Government’s consultation on carbon capture and storage, announced by Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Miliband. E.ON has proposed the project for the UK government-funded large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration project. Mitsubishi, Foster Wheeler to execute pre-FEED for E.ON UK carbon capture plant E.ON believes that the best way forward for the development of CCS would be to develop ‘clusters’ of developments by linking a number of fossil-fired power stations and other industrial sites to a single carbon transportation system. EmissionsAir Pollution Control Equipment ServicesCoalClean Coal Technologiescenter_img In a consultation on “clean coal” technology published on Wednesday the government proposes power suppliers help fund CCS development through a small tax on power, Kathryn Newell, head of domestic CCS policy at the Department of Energy and Climate Change, told a conference in London, reported Reuters. This approach would effectively ‘future proof’ the development of CCS by allowing new facilities to connect quickly to a pipeline that would work much like the existing national grids for gas supplies and for electricity transmission.

Serial killer confesses to a 1983 murder, but victim’s identity remains a mystery

Posted On May 3 2021 by

first_imgWilloughby Hills Police(CLEVELAND) — Convicted killer Samuel Little — who has confessed to dozens of murders — says he was behind the death of a young woman whose skeleton was found in Ohio in 1983, according to police.But that woman is still unidentified, and before investigators potentially move forward with charges, they’re looking to find out who this mystery victim is.The woman’s skeletal remains were discovered on March 18, 1983, in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, about 20 miles outside of Cleveland, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs).She was believed to be between 17 and 24 years old, according to NamUs.Her remains may have been there anywhere between two to five years, Willoughby Hills Police Detective Jamie Onion told ABC News on Tuesday.The preliminary medical exam did not find a cause of death, Onion said, though investigators speculate it was homicide.Little, a 78-year-old who has confessed to 93 murders spanning 1970 to 2005, says he is responsible for the death of the woman left in Willoughby Hills, according to Onion.Over half of Little’s 93 confessions have been confirmed, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said Friday.Little remembers his victims in great detail and has drawn pictures of many of the women he says he killed, according to the FBI.Onion interviewed Little in 2018; he said the convicted killer “did disclose to us that he believes our female is someone that he … did strangle back in the late 70s.” According to Onion, Little said the killing took place in Cleveland before the body was left in Willoughby Hills.Onion added, “We’re not comfortable moving forward with charges until we identify the female and make sure that we can put her in the area.”The woman found in Willoughby Hills was wearing a blue or green dress, a black or dark blue sweater and black heels. She was wearing jewelry including a gold Elgin watch, a cross necklace and a gold ring, according to NamUs.Anyone with information about her is asked to call Detective Onion at 440-918-8727 or Detective Ron Parmertor at 440-918-8725.When Little was arrested in 2012 on a narcotics charge, LAPD detectives found that his DNA matched three unsolved slayings from the 1980s, said the FBI. Little said he was innocent, but he was convicted and given three consecutive life sentences, said the FBI.Little was extradited to Texas in 2018 where he pleaded guilty to a fourth murder and received another life sentence, O’Malley said.On Friday an Ohio grand jury returned an indictment against Little for the murders of two Cleveland women in 1984 and 1991, O’Malley said. Both women were strangled, he said. Despite Little’s four life sentences, a warrant has been issued for Little’s arrest, O’Malley said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Year 2020 in Review: Pandemic Exacerbated Problems Across North Caucasus and Set Stage for More Conflict

Posted On May 3 2021 by

first_imgAs almost everywhere else, the coronavirus pandemic overshadowed and affected everything across the North Caucasus during the last year. Due to its direct impact on the population (see EDM, April 2, 2020), officials exploited the disease to tighten control and hide problems like abuse of power and torture even as they cut subsidies (see EDM, May 6, 2020; Kavkazsky Uzel, June 26, 2020). At the same time, ethnic and religious groups were forced to shift from face-to-face relations to the internet. Taken together, this modern plague set in motion forces, including protests and riots (see EDM, April 30, 2020), that make it likely there will be even more conflicts over the coming year in what has long been the most ethnically and religiously unstable region of the Russian Federation.Indeed, Aslan Bakov, a prominent political analyst from Kabardino-Balkaria, argues that the coronavirus pandemic and the Russian government’s response have exacerbated all preexisting social and economic problems in the region and thereby created “ideal conditions for a social explosion.” This new conflagration, he suggests, will involve traditional social organizations like teips and Islamic groups challenging Moscow’s representatives in each of the republics. And amidst this turmoil, many of the regional republics will end up disputing their existing borders, even if they do not engage in the kind of violence witnessed earlier (Caucasus Times, May 26, 2020; see EDM, May 20, 2020). The latter is especially likely in 2021 because none of the North Caucasus republics met Moscow’s deadline for demarcating those borders. In part that failure was caused by the pandemic, which upended previous planning and shifted the bulk of authorities’ focus to itself. But the lack of progress also stemmed from the intractability of those border disputes, especially between Chechnya and Ingushetia, on the one hand, and their neighbors, Dagestan and North Ossetia, on the other (Kavkazsky Uzel, January 3, 2021).According to Bakov, the coming flareup of social tensions is made all the more likely by the fact that Moscow cut back its subsidies to regional governments, leaving them less able to buy off the population. By the same token, that decrease in financial outlays will mean those North Caucasus republican authorities will be less willing to cooperate with an increasingly stingy center even though many of the senior officials are ethnic Russians or other outsiders—a pattern that incidentally also strengthened over the last year (Klub Regionov, November 27, 2020; Newizv.ru, July 11, 2019; see EDM, November 16, 2020). In 2020, Moscow went so far as to declare Ingushetia bankrupt and introduced direct rule over that republic’s financial operations (Novaya Gazeta, November 6, 2020). This approach could well extend to other fiscally struggling regions in the coming months (Ura.ru, November 4, 2020).The increasingly tense situation has prompted Moscow to expand its military and security presence in the North Caucasus lest some republic government prove incapable of responding to emerging threats from below and outside (Kavkazsky Uzel, April 6, 2020 and January 2, 2021; Ekho Moskvy, January 2, 2021). To be sure, some of this military expansion in the region, just like the introduction of more high-level officials who originate from the Russian security services, reflects not only problems in the North Caucasus itself but also Moscow’s fears that instability in the South Caucasus may spread northward (Kavkazsky Uzel, December 25, 2020; Flnka.ru, April 13, 2018; Caucasus Times, December 1, 2020).Despite all these moves, however, there is a growing divergence between what Moscow and its representatives are doing and what the population and its most active elements think, feel and act. Moscow dragged its heels in combatting the coronavirus, especially in the North Caucasus; as a result, the population there suffered more deaths per capita than in any other part of Russia, and the economy plummeted so far that unemployment in many places rose above 40 percent (Finexpertiza.ru, October 2, 2020). Experts say the population in the North Caucasus bears some of the blame because its low level of trust in anyone beyond immediate family members prevented local people from taking adequate steps to protect themselves against the coronavirus (Kavkazsky Uzel, May 10, 2020). Nevertheless, the nations of the region are angry, and their anger is increasingly being channeled in two new ways.First, given their rising distrust in the authorities, many in the North Caucasus republics are turning not to officials but to traditional social organizations, like Islamic structures and clan organizations such as teips, to address their problems. These groups are increasingly taking up the roles once held by local governments or civil society non-governmental organizations (NGO), which the authorities have largely suppressed; and they are largely operating outside of the view of the authorities. That trend is certain to continue in 2021 (Kavkazsky Uzel, Ekho Moskvy, January 2, 2021). Moreover, in many republics, women have assumed a new and more influential role (Windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com, August 4, 2020). Among the things such groups are organizing for is to remove local monuments to tsarist conquerors and, particularly in the case of the Circassians, to register in the delayed census a common national identity (Zapravakbr.com, July 29, 2020; 6portal.ru, March 16, 2020; Kavkazsky Uzel, June 30, 2020). The census will likely have another impact as well: It will show the North Caucasians increasing their share in the overall Russian population—more slowly than in the past but larger nonetheless.Second, angered by official actions (or inactions) and physically constrained by the pandemic, ever more of the nations of the region have turned to the internet, which has linked them up to émigré communities that are frequently more radical than they are. The powers that be, especially in Chechnya and Ingushetia, have responded by blocking some websites, but so far with little effect. The online communities that have emerged are sure to be stronger in 2021 than they were last year (Fortanga.org, February 6, 2020). One measure of their radicalization is that the number of police killed by local people rose dramatically in several republics (Kavkazr.com, October 14, 2020).Feeding into these broad tectonic shifts have been a series of official actions that have further exacerbated local anger. Among the most important have been the following:– the use of the pandemic by the authorities to restrict public activities rather than protect health (Ekho Moskvy, Kavkazsky Uzel, December 19, 2020; Doshdu.com, December 20, 2020);– their abuse of the court system to go after dissidents (Memohrc.org, December 18, 2020; Fortanga.org, December 7, 2020; 6portal.ru, March 26, 2020);– Moscow’s plans to carve out new types of federal territories in the North Caucasus, further undermining the republics as autonomous entities (Bloknot-stavropol.ru, December 26, 2020; Windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com, December 27, 2020);– additional limitations on the ability of non-ethnic-Russians to obtain an education or news in their native languages (Windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com, May 1, 2017);– plans by Moscow to dispense with republican constitutional courts, institutions highly valued by the republics (Aartyk.ru, November 30, 2020);– the Kremlin’s decision to abolish the Ministry of the North Caucasus and its constant changes in key personnel, something that has created both uncertainty and opportunities for ignoring official directives (Fortanga.org, January 23, 2020);– President Vladimir Putin’s constitutional amendments that, among other things, declare only Russians to be the “state-forming nation” of the country (6portal.ru, March 16, 2020);– Russian calls for amalgamating Adygea with predominantly ethnic-Russian Stavropol Krai (Facebook.com, accessed January 5, 2021); and– Moscow’s decision to spark competition between Kalmykia and Dagestan by funding a new port in the former to the detriment of the port and economy in the latter (see EDM, March 3, 2020).Any of these—not to mention the likelihood of some black swan events—are certain to trigger conflicts in the region in 2021, possibly creating new opportunities for at least some of its peoples but certainly posing new problems for the Putin regime.last_img read more
