Central Florida stores struggle to keep water on shelves ahead of Tropical Storm Ian

Mandatory evacuations are underway in Florida as Hurricane Ian is expected to bring severe impacts to the state later this week.

The powerful system will impact the Cayman Islands and western Cuba on Monday and is tracking to hit Florida as a major, Category-4 hurricane by mid-week. Conditions in western Cuba will deteriorate this evening with significant winds and storm surge of up to 14 feet.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has warned people to prepare but not panic. “This is a really, really big hurricane at this point,” Gov. DeSantis said. Some 300,000 people are being evacuated in Hillsborough county, which includes the city of Tampa, along with Manatee and Hernando counties. Pinellas County, which includes the cities of Clearwater and St Petersburg, will begin mandatory evacuations on Monday evening at 6pm.

Hurricane Ian will bring flash flooding, strong winds, storm surge of up to 10 feet and possible isolated tornadoes to large parts of Florida’s Gulf Coast with impacts beginning up to 36 hours before the peak.

As Florida prepares, Atlantic Canada and parts of the Caribbean including Puerto Rico are still recovering from Hurricane Fiona last week.

Zoo Miami to close during hurricane

Zoo Miami is set to close on Tuesday and Wednesday “in an abundance of caution”, the facility said.

Though the Florida city is not expected to be under major threat from Hurricane Ian, the zoo said that staff wanted to focus on its “residents” and make sure they are prepared should there be significant wind or rain in the area.

Cuba’s west coast bracing for 14feet of storm surge

Cuba’s western edge could see up to 14 feet (4.3 meters) of storm surge tonight or into the early hours of Tuesday from Hurricane Ian.

The storm is around 100 miles (160km) west of Grand Cayman, the largest of the Cayman Islands, and heading northwest towards Cuba with maximum sustained winds of 130km per hour (80 miles per hour). It is not expected to spend much time over Cuba but move quickly across the Gulf towards Florida.

Classes were suspended in Pinar del Rio province and evacuations were underway on Monday with Cuba also shutting down its train system ahead of the worst weather.

As the hurricane approached the Cayman Islands, members of the government and opposition were working together “to ensure that our people are made as safe as possible — the supplies, plywood, in some cases sandbags, are distributed so that they can safely weather this storm,” Premier Wayne Panton said in a video posted on Sunday.

“We must prepare for the worst and absolutely pray and hope for the best.”

Florida governor warns Floridians to prepare: ‘This is a really big hurricane at this point’

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned the people of his state to prepare but not panic during a press briefing on Hurricane Ian today.

The governor relayed an update from the state meteorologist that the storm was 375 miles south of Key West with sustained winds of 80mph.

He warned that it would bring flash flooding, strong winds, storm surge and possible isolated tornadoes to large parts of Florida’s Gulf Coast with impacts beginning up to 36 hours before the peak.

“This is a really, really big hurricane at this point,” Gov. DeSantis said. He added that the track was still uncertain meaning that it could “wobble” in or away from the peninsula.

Regardless, because of the hurricane’s size, storm surge warnings and watches were in place throughout southwest Florida and some counties were already issuing evacuation orders.

Florida’s Department of Transport had suspended tolls in Tampa to allow people to evacuate and a number of school districts were cancelling classes.

Some 5,000 National Guard had been mobilized in the state with additional troops on hand in neighboring Georgia and Alabama.

Mr DeSantis urged people not to panic buy, noting that more essentials were making it to major grocery store chains and that gas stations were being topped off with fuel.

He also warned people to be careful if using a generator and keep it outside the home. In recent years, a number of deaths have been caused by carbon monoxide poisoning during storms after people used generators inside properties.

The governor will speak again on Tuesday and may give an additional briefing late on Monday as the storm progresses.

Daily News Wrap-Up: Sterling and Wilson Solar to Develop 961 MW of Solar Projects in Nigeria

Article Republished By Javier Troconis

Listen to this article

Here are some noteworthy cleantech announcements of the day from around the world:

Sterling and Wilson Solar Solutions signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to develop, design, construct, and commission solar power projects aggregating 961 MW at five locations in Nigeria. The projects will have battery energy storage systems with a total installed capacity of 455 MWh. These projects will ultimately be owned and operated by Niger Delta Power Holding Company, a Nigerian Government owned entity. Financing for these projects is under negotiations between US EXIM, ING, and the Government of Nigeria.

Senvion, a wind turbine manufacturer, was awarded a 119 MW project to deliver its high-quality wind turbines for Continuum Green Energy. Senvion turbines will be deployed in Continuum Green Energy renewable projects for Commercial & Industrial consumers. The project will comprise 44 of Senvion’s 2.7 MW turbines, harnessing energy at 130 meters. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The project also comes with a 20-year operation and maintenance contract by Senvion.

LONGi announced a conversion efficiency of 26.12% for its p-type silicon heterojunction (HJT) cells. The record was validated in testing by LONGi in collaboration with the Institute for Solar Energy Research (ISFH) in Hamelin, Germany. It was achieved on full-size – M6, 274.3cm2 gallium-doped p-type monocrystalline wafers and is claimed as a record for p-type cell efficiency to date, further confirming the feasibility of low-cost HJT mass production technology. The LONGi R&D team has enhanced the crystal pulling process in response to increased demand for performance indicators for p-HJT wafers, such as resistivity and lifespan. The cell efficiency is 0.65% higher than 25.47%, released earlier this year.

WRI India signed a memorandum of understanding with the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) and Hero Electric Vehicles. The agreement is expected to help ensure the necessary skilling for Delhi’s workforce. DSEU will design an integrated course for training its ‘Diploma in Automobile Engineering’ program students to become ‘Electric Vehicle mechanics.’ Through its rich industry experience, Hero Electric will support DSEU in designing the study material and provide practical training and internship opportunities to the program students. WRI India will provide the program with the required research, monitoring, and evaluation support as the knowledge partner.

Three of Korea’s largest conglomerate groups, Korea Zinc, Hanwha Impact and SK Gas, and Australian-based Ark Energy, have formed the Hanguk-Hoju (Korea-Australia) Hydrogen (Han-Ho H2) consortium and signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop a supply chain to export more than 1 million tons of green ammonia per annum from Australia to the Republic of Korea by 2032.

Canada, UAE first to back maritime clean energy initiative

Article Republished By Javier Troconis

Canada and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have endorsed a new initiative to support the global energy transition to greener fuel across the maritime sector.

The two governments are among the first to show their support to the newly launched initiative, ‘Clean Energy Marine Hubs Initiative’.

The International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) and International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH), along with the CEO-led Clean Energy Maritime Taskforce, recently unveiled the project at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) in Pittsburgh.

Under the Initiative – which will see public and private senior-level stakeholders from the ports, shipping, finance, and energy sectors across the energy-maritime value chain coming together – ICS and IAPH will seek action to promote production, export and import of low-carbon fuels.

Key objectives of the initiative include facilitating information and knowledge exchange on policies, programmes, and decarbonisation projects to de-risk investment and accelerate the commercial deployment of alternative fuels and technologies across countries.

“Currently, the expansion of the UAE’s hydrogen economy is in process with mega projects involving several of our leading ports,” said Eng. Nawal AlHanaee, Director of Future Energy Department, the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure.

“The two-gigawatt green ammonia project by Taqa, the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company, and Abu Dhabi Ports is one such project that will produce green hydrogen and process it into liquid ammonia, to be used in ships as bunker fuel and for export. This coupled with other endeavours by our ports will reinforce the UAE’s position as a key competitive maritime hub.

“Therefore, we are looking forward to our collaboration with all international governments, such as Canada, to reinforce the adoption of hydrogen technologies and fuels.”

READ: AD Ports maps out electric vehicles assembly facility

The initial concept for creating green marine hubs was announced earlier this year as a forum to enable policy makers and industry stakeholders to quickly unlock clean energy deployment.

Representatives of the maritime sector said the participation of Canada and the UAE has to potential to establish a “pathway” for others to follow.

“Resolving the energy transition challenge for shipping and the wider world requires broad-looking, multi-sector solutions,” said Patrick Verhoeven, Managing Director of the IAPH.

“Ports have a vital role to play, not only as bunker infrastructure providers but as new energy hubs in order for the economics around zero emissions fuels to work.

“Securing the backing of national governments, like that of Canada and the UAE today, will help kickstart collaboration between energy producers and the entire maritime value chain in getting those first hubs established.”

Earlier last week, shipping giant Maersk offered its support for the Clean Shipping Act targeting shipping’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The bill sets carbon intensity standards for fuels used by ships and sets requirements to eliminate in-port ship emissions by 2030 in a bid to protect the health of port communities, address environmental injustice, and provide solutions to the climate crisis.

solar kitchen restaurant by martí guixé and antto melasniemi returns to lisbon, portugal

Article Republished By Javier Troconis

Solar Kitchen Restaurant makes comeback in Portugal

Back in 2011, Catalan designer Martí Guixé and Finnish food visionary Antto Melasniemi launched the Solar Kitchen Restaurant for Lapin Kulta in Helsinki. After ten years, the initiative, which has new relevance in light of the current energy crisis, will return for a lecture at the Congresso dos Cozinheiros in Lisbon, to educate on the connection between solar energy and cooking and to introduce a whole new tasting experience.

cooking with sun around the globe

Rethinking the perception of food and drink in relation to nature, the Solar Kitchen Restaurant is based on a kitchen concept where the food will be cooked using only alternative energy: the sun. ‘Cooking with the sun is entirely different from traditional cooking. It takes place outdoors, – with sunglasses – is weather-dependent, and requires flexibility not only from the cook but also from the diners.’ Martí Guixé shares. ‘Moreover, concentrating heat through the parabola affects the food differently than standard sources of heat and positively influences the texture and flavor of the food.’

The restaurant offers non-conventional experiences not only in cooking but also in eating. On days with sunshine, the kitchen is able to serve a barbecue, while on days with less fair weather, the restaurant can serve salads and whatever else can be prepared without sunlight, but with bright light and mild temperatures. Additionally, the restaurant tests the flexibility and adaptability of its customers by requiring them to reschedule and suffer with delays if it rains.

Since 2011, the kitchen has traveled throughout Finland, stopping for extended pop-up stays at the Abattoir and the former fishing harbor Kalatasama in Helsinki. Sweden, Japan, Alaska, and Israel were among the international pit stops. Now, on the occasion of the Congresso dos Cozinheiros in Lisbon, the Catalan industrial designer and the Finnish food visionary will discuss the initiative, which combines a gourmet restaurant with an environmental and gastronomic art project and emphasizes three key contemporary themes: a nature-driven process, flexibility, and immediacy.

Solar Kitchen Restaurant makes comeback in Portugal

Back in 2011, Catalan designer Martí Guixé and Finnish food visionary Antto Melasniemi launched the Solar Kitchen Restaurant for Lapin Kulta in Helsinki. After ten years, the initiative, which has new relevance in light of the current energy crisis, will return for a lecture at the Congresso dos Cozinheiros in Lisbon, to educate on the connection between solar energy and cooking and to introduce a whole new tasting experience.

cooking with sun around the globe

Rethinking the perception of food and drink in relation to nature, the Solar Kitchen Restaurant is based on a kitchen concept where the food will be cooked using only alternative energy: the sun. ‘Cooking with the sun is entirely different from traditional cooking. It takes place outdoors, – with sunglasses – is weather-dependent, and requires flexibility not only from the cook but also from the diners.’ Martí Guixé shares. ‘Moreover, concentrating heat through the parabola affects the food differently than standard sources of heat and positively influences the texture and flavor of the food.’

The restaurant offers non-conventional experiences not only in cooking but also in eating. On days with sunshine, the kitchen is able to serve a barbecue, while on days with less fair weather, the restaurant can serve salads and whatever else can be prepared without sunlight, but with bright light and mild temperatures. Additionally, the restaurant tests the flexibility and adaptability of its customers by requiring them to reschedule and suffer with delays if it rains.

Since 2011, the kitchen has traveled throughout Finland, stopping for extended pop-up stays at the Abattoir and the former fishing harbor Kalatasama in Helsinki. Sweden, Japan, Alaska, and Israel were among the international pit stops. Now, on the occasion of the Congresso dos Cozinheiros in Lisbon, the Catalan industrial designer and the Finnish food visionary will discuss the initiative, which combines a gourmet restaurant with an environmental and gastronomic art project and emphasizes three key contemporary themes: a nature-driven process, flexibility, and immediacy.
