TMEIC inverter orders rise 48% in 2014The Japanese inverter company achieved orders of almost 3 GW last year, with a further 2.5 GW in shipments as its overseas fabs hit full-scale operation. May 20, 2015 Ian Clover Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share Japanese solar inverter company Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC) achieved a 1.5-fold increase in orders and shipments for its solar inverters in 2014, posting 2.905 GW and 2.536 GW respectively. In fiscal year 2013, TMEICs PV order book was 1.9 GW, with the company adding more than 1 GW to that figure in FY2014. Equally, in 2013 its shipments reached 1.6 GW, whereas last year that figure rose to 2.536 GW. TMEIC has attributed this increase to the successful expansion of its overseas manufacturing bases in the U.S., India and China all of which are now at full-scale operation. Including Japan, the company now boasts four large-scale production facilities globally, and will further augment its mass production network as the company seeks greater international expansion this year. Analysis by IHS earlier this month revealed that Japanese inverter suppliers are closing in on their European and U.S. rivals in terms of global revenue share, with TMEIC now ranked fourth globally, behind fellow Japanese supplier Omron. Germanys SMA is still in the driving seat, one place ahead of ABB, but IHS analyst Cormac Gilligan believes that the company could lose the number one position this year in the face of sustained pressure from Asia. “SMA could be displaced as the leading PV inverter supplier in 2015,” Gilligan said, “if not in terms of revenue then quite possibly in terms of MW shipments.”Popular content 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.

Police: 45-year-old man arrested for attempting to have sex with 15-year-old girl in Secaucus By Jeannette Josue – July 21, 2016 10:42 am 0 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Bayonne Over 100 guests attended an LGBT elected officials meet and greet at Transmission in Jersey City to discuss transgender healthcare, empowerment and much more.[fve]https://youtu.be/LBHCBK4VI3w[/fve]â€œHudson County and Jersey City are one of the diverse areas in the county and there are lot of issues that our residents face and what we want to do is we want to make sure that people are aware of those issues and that they know who are their champions and who is speaking out on their behalf. What the issues really are and how they can do something about that,”Â explained Hudson County Young Democrats President Brian Platt.Platt further shared his opinion on unisex bathrooms.â€œYou should be able to feel comfortable where you work, where you go to the gym and where you socialize and to force people into categories where they donâ€™t feel they belong certainly isnâ€™t something that we can stand behind.â€Another main issue discussed with transgender inclusive health care.New Jersey Democratic State Committee’s LGBT Caucus Chairman Christopher Hillmann told Hudson County View the issue is â€œone of the forefront of something that we are fighting for as a community now.”“Legislation in New Jersey, like the birth certificate bill that will allow transgender people to alter their birth certificate to reflect the gender that they actually are, allowing them to get the healthcare needs that they actually deserve.”Hillmann further explained that healthcare helps prevent depression, suicide and possible solicitation in order to financially fund treatment especially for those who are in the process of transitioning.Hillmann, also the Chief of Staff for Assemblyman Tim Eustace (LD-38), also noted the efforts in Bergen County against anti-LGBT jury selection.Another message for the meet and greet was really to get the LGBT community to get involved in the local and state community as a whole.â€œLetâ€™s get ourselves volunteering. Letâ€™s put ourselves on board. Letâ€™s run for office. Letâ€™s meet our elected officials. Letâ€™s empower our community by getting involved,â€ stated Michael Billy, co-chair of Jersey City Pride.The event also served as a fundraiser for victims of the Orlando massacre that took place last month, similar to a Jersey City event county officials hosted last week.Also in attendance were Hoboken Freeholder Anthony Romano (D-5), Hoboken 1st Ward Councilman Mike DeFusco, Jersey City Council President Rolando Lavarro, Jersey City Board of Education Trustee Gerald Lyons, West New York Board of Education Trustees Adam Parkinson and Jonathan Castaneda – among many others.The event was hosted by the Hudson County Young Democrats.

On November 11, a day after he signed the trilateral accord with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan ending the Second Karabakh War, President Ilham Aliyev of Azerbaijan declared that “almost 99 percent of the liberated territories had been destroyed” (Azernews, November 12). The termination of the Armenian occupation revealed the enormous extent of the destruction in the territories that once were home to up to a million people. Everything, including residential buildings, schools, hospitals, public buildings, historical sites, graves and mosques had been razed to the ground, President Aliyev added. Further devastation was carried out recently in Kalbajar and Lachin when the local people, who moved there after the start of the occupation, were informed about the region’s imminent handover to Azerbaijan (Anadoly Agency, November 13).Karabakh and surrounding territories following fall 2020 war (Source: Wikimedia Commons)Aliyev has vowed on a number of occasions that the total damage will be calculated and Yerevan will be held accountable before the international courts and compelled to pay compensation. On December 1, in his national address following the handover of the Lachin region to Azerbaijan (in line with article six of the November 9 trilateral ceasefire accord), he stated that “the assessment process will begin soon and the damage will be calculated [with the] participation of international institutions. Steps have already been taken at the legal level,” without disclosing the details of the process (President.az, December 1). Aliyev had earlier declared that Azerbaijan would file lawsuits with international courts—both individually, by the internally displaced persons (IDP) who were directly affected by the occupation, and collectively, at the state level (Azernews, November 12).Ara Ghazaryan, an Armenian lawyer, believes that Yerevan possesses sufficient legal arguments to counterbalance Baku’s demands for compensation. “Armenia and Artsakh [the Armenian name for separatist Karabakh] may also demand compensation for the bombing of our settlements” and “unleashing of the war” against Armenians on September 27, 2020, Ghazaryan said to a local news outlet (Armenpress, November 27). However, since Karabakh is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, Ghazaryan’s claim may not be as effective as he anticipates.Gevork Kostanyan, a former prosecutor general of Armenia and former representative of Yerevan at the European Court of Human Rights, is, therefore, not as optimistic as Ghazaryan. He has warned about Azerbaijan’s demands for compensation and called on Pashinyan to resign as well as to invalidate the trilateral ceasefire accord the Armenian leader signed on November 9. “After [Pashinyan’s] signing of the famous statement, a legal basis has emerged for Azerbaijan to file a lawsuit against Armenia demanding compensation,” Kostanyan argued (News.am, November 12; Newarmenia.am, November 21).Azerbaijan started preparing a lawsuit against Armenia related to compensation for the material damage in the occupied territories as early as two years ago. “They hired an international organization for calculating the damage, which estimated the damage caused to Azerbaijan at more than $50 billion,” Kostanyan said. He added that Baku did not pursue this process any further at that time, as “as they did not have sufficient evidence that the responsible entity was Armenia.” According to the former Armenian official, Yerevan signed the 1994 ceasefire agreement (halting the First Nagorno-Karabakh War) as a guarantor not as a responsible side of the conflict, but this position changed after Pashinyan signed the trilateral statement and accepted obligations to withdraw Armenia’s Armed Forces from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan (News.am, November 26).Azerbaijan expects that the amount of compensation could be much higher than Kostonyan’s estimation, with expert predictions ranging from $100 billion to $1.3 trillion (Trend, November 18). However, Baku has yet to present a final, official figure; President Aliyev has clarified that it will only be determined following the completion of an appraisal of the damage. It is widely assumed that Armenia, with its struggling economy, will face a monumental challenge to pay any amount of reparations that is calculated in the billions of dollars.Vugar Bayramov, an Azerbaijani member of parliament, has pointed out that there have been notable cases in recent history of states being forced to pay reparation at the conclusion of interstate wars—for example, the United Nations compelled (Resolution 687) Iraq to pay $52.4 billion in compensation for the latter’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990 (Publika.az, November 13). He added that even very poor countries have paid those compensatory commitments partly or completely, after they were held accountable by international courts. “That is why the fact that Armenia is a poor country does not save it from the liability to recompense the damage its occupation has inflicted on Azerbaijan,” he stressed.As for the prospects of the legal battles between the two countries in the future, Gevork Kostonyan believes that Yerevan will have no viable defense in the courts. Since Armenia signed the November 9 trilateral agreement, it explicitly acknowledged that it controlled Azerbaijan’s occupied territories during the last three decades, he argued. As a result, Kostonyan continued, “when Azerbaijan files the lawsuit [soon], and not in the amount of $50 billion but even $100 billion, Armenia [will have] no legal grounds against it at the moment” (News.am, November 26). In accordance with the European Court of Human Rights, the 1950 European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Freedoms as well as the Geneva Conventions, Armenia may be legally obliged to pay the compensation. However, Azerbaijani lawyer Fuad Aghayev doubts Baku will see the money any time soon, even if it wins the case in court. “Armenia will most likely evade the payment of compensation. And it is too early to go into the details of the implementation of the [legal] decisions,” Aghayev concluded (Az.sputnik.ru, November 23). The costs of rebuilding Karabakh will, thus, likely fall on Azerbaijan for the time being.

The timetable for the long-standing annual bus service to the abandoned village of Imber, on Salisbury Plain has been published.There are only a few days each year when the road through Imber is open to the public.This year the Imberbus service will operate on Saturday 20 August.The route includes an intechange at Gore Cross, to enable cross-transferIt is operated by the Bath Bus Company with the assistance of other leading bus companies and the support of industry suppliers.The charity event – which routeONE is delighted to support – is raising funds for the Imber Church Fund and Royal British Legion.There will be at least 10 former London Transport Routemaster buses (plus a few newer ones) providing a bus service from Warminster Station to Imber and other isolated locations on the Salisbury Plain.As the buses will be operating an ordinary bus service, there will be no need to book in advance – just turn up and pay the conductor on the bus.The village of Imber is no longer inhabited as the residents were evicted just before Christmas 1943 by the MoD, in order to step up army training in advance of D-Day.The villagers were promised that their village would be returned to them after the war but this was not to be and 72-years on it is still uninhabited, much of it having been damaged or destroyed.It remains in use for army training but the connecting road is open to the public on a limited number of occasions each year and was previously only accessible to the public if they had their own transport.In 2009, a group of bus industry professionals achieved a long-standing ambition to run a vintage bus service from Warminster in Wiltshire, to Imber.It proved to be so popular that it has now become an annual event, with most journeys continuing across the Plain to parts of Wiltshire rarely seen by public transport users.For details of this year’s event visit the Imberbus 2016 website
These range from ‘proprietary’ services with their own home shopping and banking, news, games and interactive services for subscribers to simple access services to the Internet.These three – sometimes inter-linked – markets for online services, cable communications and multimedia are providing headaches for regulators on both sides of the Atlantic.Neither the US Department of Justice nor the Commission’s Directorate-General for competition, DGIV, wants these markets to be carved up by companies already dominant in related areas.This, they believe, would be the best way of ensuring that, after an initial burst of activity as the market came to life, the dominance of some firms would breed laziness and lack of innovation. Only with constant change will the full potential of these markets be tested.The biggest challenge to this comes from Bill Gates and Microsoft. He already dominates the global provision of software for PCs, taking an even more commanding lead with the world-wide launch of Windows 95 last year, and is threatening to do the same for the Internet.The Commission is investigating allegations from CompuServe, among others, that Microsoft has made trying to access services other than MSN from Windows 95 excessively complex. Meanwhile, US federal investigators are looking into allegations that some software packages from other companies designed to allow people to browse the Internet do not work with Windows 95. US investigators are talking to Netscape as well as CompuServe and Prodigy.“If he (Bill Gates) is trying to foreclose the market and make life impossible for competitors, then we will act swiftly and with determination and be as tough as we need to be,” Competition Commissioner Karel Van Miert has warned.Gates’ next move will be Teledesic, a plan to launch 840 satellites into low orbit which will allow people equipped with a decoder and an aerial outside major cities to use all the new information technologies.This, despite some worries expressed by Van Miert, is – so far – outside his jurisdiction.But European online services are emerging to take on Microsoft.The most significant so far is AOL Bertelsmann Online Management GmbH – a joint venture between Europe’s biggest publisher Bertelsmann, America Online and Deutsche Telekom. “We have to combat the threatening dominance of Microsoft in Europe,” said Bernd Schiphorst of AOL Bertelsmann recently.“If we do nothing today, more than a satisfactory online business will be lost. We have to completely dominate our markets here in Europe.”That market is growing constantly, promising to expand to 6 billion ecu by the end of the decade while, globally, industry-watchers expect the number of Internet subscribers to grow to 200 million by 2002.Van Miert may sympathise with the sentiments of AOL-Bertelsmann as it tries to take on the might of Bill Gates, but he cannot endorse the domination of an infant market even by European companies.For this reason, late last year DGIV set in motion parallel inquiriesinto AOL-Bertelsmann, MSN and the latest addition, Europe Online – amulti-company venture dominated by publishers Burda and Pearson, US telecoms operator AT&T and a group of Luxembourg banks.The task of the investigators is to find out whether these services in any way restrict the free play of market forces.“In the online business, you have strong players coming together,” Van Miert has said. “We don’t have any objection in principle, but we have to find out whether access to the software will be available to others as well. It was pre-emptive action to avoid the creation of deals that later on would have to be investigated.”In the case of AOL-Bertelsmann, the Commission is most concerned about the participation of Deutsche Telekom, which already dominates the German online market through T-Online as well as controlling the networks which competing services need to start up. The nascent market for pay-television and multimedia services via cable is running into even more solid obstacles. The most ambitious venture, Media Services GmbH (MSG) – a combination of Bertelsmann, Deutsche Telekom and Kirch – was blocked by Van Miert for fear that it would hamper the entrance of newcomers in this market.“What we are witnessing is that some companies are trying to foreclose evolving markets,” said the Commissioner.“With the MSG case, nobody can pretend we got it wrong because three big players – Deutsche Telekom, being the owner of more than 90% of the cable infrastructure, Bertelsmann and Kirch – were foreclosing the growing pay-TV, digital-TV market for the German-speaking area.”Let the ambitious beware. DGIV will not turn a blind eye for a moment. But in France and Germany as well, manufacturers are seeing the market grow by as much as 20% every year and, in the business sector, interest is growing in video-conferencing and multimedia training tools.Then comes the Internet – the world’s largest non-commercial online network – originally developed in the Sixties to link university research departments, and which now brings together more than three million computers and 50,000 networks in more than 80 countries.As the market develops, there is a danger that customers could be left behind by the enthusiasm of suppliers to come up with ever more sophisticated information technology (IT) products.A survey carried out by the European Electronic Messaging Association (EEMA) identified a split between suppliers and users over the best and most useful technologies.Business customers are still wedded to the Internet and fax messaging, although locally networked electronic mail is also making inroads. Far behind, despite the best attempts by manufacturers to push it, is the latest internationally recognised telecoms standard X.500.At the household level, the world’s biggest publishing and software firms are falling over themselves to win a slice of the market in online services. AOL-Bertelsmann believes it can win 25% market share in Germany early on, and 200,000 online subscribers in Europe by the end of this year, rising to around a million by the end of the decade.It launched a French service at the end of February, with the intention of bringing local partners on board to avoid simply transposing the German service on to the market in France.AOL-Bertelsmann would also like to bag publishing house Hachette along with its extensive catalogue of publications, particularly since AOL and Hachette are already partners in the US.But the Commission wants guarantees that big publishing houses such as Bertelsmann will not restrict published information on the services. The company already dominates Germany’s book club market and a large group of newspapers and magazines which provide material for the service.Europe Online seems less problematic, since its services are directly on the Internet and should not restrict competitors’ access to networks. Again, as in the AOL-Bertelsmann case, the problems lie in publishing the contents of publications owned by Europe Online’s partners and the ability of competitors to buy space to advertise products. With Burda and Pearson, this venture boasts two of Europe’s biggest book publishers.The results of the inquiries are likely to be published by the summer, allowing the firms involved to make any necessary adjustments to avoid anti-trust actions by the Commission in the future. The telephone has come to be considered as an essential tool of life in the EU, but such limited expectations are becoming outmoded. For a growing number of people, fax machines and modems attached to personal computers have become equally vital.Now there are signs that multimedia technology is finally starting to take hold in European households.In Europe, the UK is leading the way, largely because of its deregulated telecoms market and the high penetration of CD-Rom as a way of storing information on home PCs.
This is the first in a series of Gazette articles highlighting some of the many initiatives and charities that Harvard affiliates can support through this month’s Community Gifts Through Harvard campaign. The Community Gifts campaign allows you to donate to a charity of your choice through cash, a check, or a payroll deduction.

Their goal: to create a means for the disenfranchised to fight for their right to a healthy environment.Together the pair envisioned a grassroots organization that would sustain itself through broad community involvement and support. Fourteen years later, the two men have their wish.Today the organization is divided into three separate programs, has 500 dues-paying members, and has assisted countless people in the Greater Boston area with a variety of environmental justice concerns.The group’s Services to Allies division includes an extensive network of pro bono attorneys and environmental professionals who work with low-income residents to address environmental and public health issues in their local communities. The work ranges widely, from the monitor and cleanup of hazardous waste sites, to neighborhood revitalization projects.ACE also runs the Roxbury Environmental Empowerment Project, a youth-led movement that promotes youth involvement in environmental issues. To limit diesel pollution, considered largely responsible for the state’s high rates of child asthma, the group helped craft legislation that would require state-owned diesel vehicles as well as diesel-run municipal garbage and recycling trucks be retrofitted with special filters. In 2001, ACE successfully helped press for a similar measure that required the MBTA to purchase 350 buses that run on compressed natural gas.“Seeing a young person … leave the program … really feeling like their voice is important; it matters; it’s valid” — that, said ACE Youth Educator/Organizer Brandon McDowell, is the best reward.The third division of ACE, The T Riders’ Union, advocates for better public transportation in Greater Boston. The program focuses on making public transportation reliable, affordable, and accessible.Daniel A. Goodenough, Takeda Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School, serves on ACE’s board of directors and is the chairman of its development committee. He said the organization provides an invaluable service to the community, giving voice to those who suffer environmental injustice.“It’s a wonderful organization that believes in the power of the community. It is totally defined and driven by community people.”Over the years ACE has come to rely on donations from organizations like Community Works, one of the beneficiaries of the Community Gifts Through Harvard campaign.“Community Works is a portfolio of social-justice-oriented organizations,” said Fran Froehlich, the group’s co-founder. “Within that portfolio are 30 organizations that address many of the critical issues facing society. Our 30 member groups are committed to applying the values of community, inclusion, and self-determination to the problems they address. ACE is a perfect example of those values. We are proud to have them as part of Community Works.”Holly Unger, ACE’s development and major gifts coordinator, said support from institutions like Harvard means financial assistance as well as important public exposure.“Because places like Harvard have these campaigns, people that we never would have been able to reach have the opportunity to learn about our organization and the issues that we are working on and how they can help and be a part of it.”
