Milestone set in South Australia as solar supplies 100% of demand for first time

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:The combination of rooftop and utility scale solar met 100 per cent of demand in South Australia for the first time on Sunday, reaching a milestone that will surely be repeated many times over – and for longer periods – in the future.The milestone was reached at 12.05pm grid time (Australian eastern standard time), with rooftop solar providing 992MW, or 76.3 per cent of state demand, and utility scale solar providing a further 315MW – meaning all three of the state’s big solar farms, Bungala 1, Bungala 2 and Tailem Bend were operating at full capacity.The new record came just weeks after solar set a previous milestone of 94 per cent of state demand and rooftop solar output reached 900MW for the first time. On Sunday, that level (94 per cent) was beaten for more than two and a half hours. The combination of sunny weather, mild temperatures and relatively low weekend demand is sure to see more records fall.The state’s generators were producing more than they needed and exporting most of the surplus to Victoria with some going into the state’s big batteries.South Australia is currently required to run a minimum amount of gas-fired generation to provide grid services such as inertia and system strength, but the need for this will be reduced when four new synchronous condensers are switched on over the next 12 month, and as battery storage begins to provide “synthetic” inertia services.The expanded Hornsdale big battery is trialing those inertia services, and has the capacity to meet half the state’s inertia requirements. The construction of a new link to NSW will also further reduce the need for local gas fired generators, and will accelerate the shift towards the state Liberal government’s target of net 100 per cent renewables (averaged over a year).[Giles Parkinson]More: Solar meets 100 per cent of South Australia demand for first time Milestone set in South Australia as solar supplies 100% of demand for first timelast_img read more

Brazilian Army Conducts Training for Rio de Janeiro’s Military Police

first_imgBy Nelza Oliveira/Diálogo June 04, 2018 On April 12, 2018, the Brazilian Army (EB, in Portuguese) kicked off a course for 130 officers from the 14th Military Police Battalion (BPM, in Portuguese) of Bangu at the East Training Center in the Military Village of Deodoro, a neighborhood in northern Rio de Janeiro. All officers of the 14th BPM will participate in the Tactical Applications Internship—so will police officers in the state of Rio de Janeiro. EB Colonel Roberto Itamar, spokesperson for the Federal Intervention Office, said training also takes place at the Army’s Central Munitions Depot in the municipality of Paracambi, an hour from Rio de Janeiro. “Every week, 130 police officers undergo this training, which lasts 40 hours,” Col. Itamar said. “The Bangu Battalion went first because the unit works on an ongoing federal intervention pilot project in its area of responsibility in Vila Kennedy.” Vila Kennedy is a Rio neighborhood where the Federal Intervention Office first took action. The interventions began July 2017 after Brazilian President Michel Temer signed the Guarantee of Law and Order decree, authorizing service members to engage in police activities for a limited period of time, such as when traditional public safety forces have been exhausted and during serious civil unrest. Military intervention for Rio’s safety is scheduled to last until December. The objective of the course is to help the Military Police (PM, in Portuguese) guarantee a higher safety level for civilians and police during confrontations in Rio de Janeiro’s conflict zones. The priority is to select police officers from areas where EB currently operates so that PM can continue to keep the area secure upon service members’ departure at the end of the intervention. “Military police officers receive training on firearm maintenance, assembly and disassembly, target practice [pistols and rifles], and operations in a hostile environment from Brazilian Army instructors and the Military Police Special Operations Command,” Col. Itamar said. “Training includes protection against firearm threats, safe and coordinated movements in a group, and identification of real threats.” EB’s realistic training uses sophisticated equipment, such as tactical engagement simulation devices. The equipment and weapons used during the course have built-in receivers and laser emitters that signal when an officer has been hit and how serious the injury is. Strengthening PM throughout Brazil On May 2nd, soon after the launch of the Tactical Applications Internship, the federal government announced the National Plan to Strengthen and Support the Military Police of the ministries of Defense and Public Safety. The partnership calls for EB to provide Brazil’s PM with support, such as staffing, training, equipment, planning instruments, and intelligence. According to the Ministry of Defense’s Public Affairs Office, police officers from several Brazilian states will take part in the training based on the criteria of each state. PM will undergo a training process considered essential to ensure high levels of quality in the services rendered by defense and public safety personnel. “The knowledge the Army gained in recent years further reinforces Brazil’s participation in a wide range of United Nations peacekeeping missions. We’ll be able to contribute significantly to training with a better appreciation for these professionals. They put their lives on the line for us every day to ensure public safety in our cities,” said Army General Joaquim Silva e Luna, Brazil’s Minister of Defense. The Inspectorate General of the Military Police and the Military Fire Brigade (IGPM, in Portuguese), an EB body that coordinates and monitors PM and military firefighters for more than 50 years, will manage the partnership. The goal is to increase IGPM’s involvement in training and enhancing police actions, sharing personnel and material resources on a temporary, emergency basis. The first step for IGPM is to conduct a study to identify the needs of every PM in the country. During the launch ceremony, Minister of Public Safety Raul Jungmann noted that each security institution will continue to have its own maintenance and investment obligations, while counting on support from EB, primarily for intelligence and planning. “This agreement brings the Brazilian Army, its resources, its staff, its expertise, and its facilities in line with Brazil’s military police. This not only represents an extraordinary effort to improve our military police capabilities, but also raises the bar in the fight against organized crime and strengthens public safety,” Jungmann said. The initial investment is $1.4 million. The recommendation is for funding to be used first and foremost for training. An $11.5 billion line of credit will also be available from the National Development Bank to restructure PM over a five-year period.last_img read more

Justice Quince asks Bar to boost pro bono effort

first_img Justice Quince asks Bar to boost pro bono effort Gary Blankenship Senior Editor The Florida Bar should look at ways to boost pro bono work and contributions, continue its efforts at civic education for the public, and continue to protect the independence of the judicial branch. Supreme Court Justice Peggy Quince brought that message to the Bar Board of Governors at its February 17 meeting in Tallahassee, speaking for Chief Justice Barbara Pariente, who was unable to attend. At its annual Tallahassee meeting, the board traditionally hears from the chief justice. “I am really surprised that in our public schools, you only need half a credit in civics education and that’s late in the curriculum,” Quince said. “We need to start early so our young people understand the importance of the executive branch, the legislative branch, and the judicial branch and the part each plays.” The Bar’s recent efforts, which include surveys of citizens’ knowledge about government and the separation of powers and a public education campaign are helping, she said. “We think it is a good step toward making sure the people understand the importance of the three branchesof government,” Quince said. “It will increase the public’s trust and confidence in the judicial system and the public trust and confidence in lawyers, who are our judicial system.” The justice noted the board meeting came the day after annual pro bono awards were presented at the Supreme Court. The most recent figures show that Bar members contributed 1.5 million hours in pro bono work and $3.8 million to pro bono legal aid agencies. While impressive, “I think we can do even more,” Quince said, adding the numbers have been static for about three years. “We can get out of pro bono [work] by contributing $350. Well, $350 is probably less than many of you and many of your colleagues make in an hour,” Quince said. Given many unmet needs, the Bar should encourage its members to do more than the minimum of a $350 donation or 20 hours annually in the voluntary pro bono program, she said. “Only about 25 percent of the legal needs of our [poor] are being met and over half the children in our legal system have no lawyer or no guardian ad litem,” Quince said. “There’s a lot of work to be done, and with your help and the help of all of us who are members of The Florida Bar, we can get there.” On judicial independence, Quince said the court needs help both in responding to political attacks and in obtaining enough money to keep qualified staff. “Whether you agree or disagree with particular issues or opinions that come out isn’t really the issue. The issue is do we want to change our system because of a decision or a group of decisions,” the justice said. She noted that some politicians unhappy with court rulings have talked about changing the jurisdiction or rule-making authority of the court. “Those should not be based on whether any particular decision is popular or unpopular,” Quince said. Equally important is getting adequate salaries for court staff — a top priority of the court system in this year’s legislature. “The judicial budget represents about 0.6 percent of the entire state budget. That state budget is about $58 billion; the judicial budget is just over $400 million,” Quince said. “We need more money in the judicial budget just to take care of issues like parity pay for people who work for the court system.” She reported that court clerks get around $424 million — more than the courts — just for their court record-keeping and support functions. Clerks, and other state and local government agencies, also tend to pay better, making it difficult to keep good people in the court staff. “When you look at the court system, it consists of about 3,000 people. Half of the court’s budget goes to judicial salaries. It doesn’t leave a lot for operations or the salaries of other people in the courts,” Quince said. “We desperately need to upgrade the salaries of people who work for us because, quite frankly, now we cannot afford to keep people we need or compete for the well-qualified workers.” She closed her talk by thanking the Bar for its work in supporting the judicial system. Bar President Alan Bookman responded, “I pledge the Bar and the Board of Governors support in all the judiciary does. The right of the public to have a fair and impartial judiciary exceeds everything else.” March 15, 2006 Regular News Justice Quince asks Bar to boost pro bono effortlast_img read more

Inter held at Roma to leave Juventus closer to Serie A title

first_imgInter Milan missed a chance to keep the pressure on Juventus after being held 2-2 at Roma on Sunday, leaving the way clear for the Turin giants to close in on a ninth consecutive Serie A title.Romelu Lukaku’s penalty two minutes from time rescued a point for Antonio Conte’s Inter, who are second, five points behind Juventus.Juve can open up an eight-point lead on the top of the table when they host fourth-placed Lazio on Monday. Stefan De Vrij had got Inter off the mark at the Stadio Olimpico when he headed home an Alexis Sanchez corner after 14 minutes.But Roma captain Edin Dzeko set up Leonardo Spinazzola for the equalizer in first half stoppage time and was again involved when Henrikh Mkhitaryan got the second in the 57th minute.Lukaku came off the bench and scored from the spot late after Spinazzola fouled Victor Moses.It was a stalemate which does little to help either team, and boosts Juventus’ chances of extending their record Serie A run. “We have to get used to playing these big games with so much pressure, which is something Inter have lost in recent years,” said Conte, whose side have not won Serie A since 2010, when they won the treble under Jose Mourinho.”I can’t blame my players for anything, today we faced a team in good shape,” he continued.”Our team is doing excellent things. Beyond the second place, we are into the Champions League.”Inter cannot be caught by Roma, who are fifth and nine points adrift of the Champions League places, 14 behind Inter with four matches to play. They are one point ahead of third-placed Atalanta, who have also qualified for Europe’s top competition after Inter’s draw in the Italian capital.Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso was unhappy with the league’s tight schedule as his side beat Udinese 2-1.Napoli are two points behind Roma in sixth after Matteo Politano blasted in the winner five minutes into injury time to snatch all three points.”It was an important victory even if now we’re playing another sport which worries me,” said Gattuso.”This is not football. Playing every three days and without fans is something different, the players are not robots.”Gattuso’s side are out of the running for the Champions League next season but are preparing to meet Barcelona in the second leg of their last 16 tie in this year’s edition, with both sides locked at 1-1. SPAL return to Serie BAt the bottom of the table Brescia, in 19th, won 2-1 to condemn SPAL to a return to Serie B after two seasons in the top flight.In another relegation dogfight Genoa beat Lecce 2-1 to move four points clear of the southerners who occupy the final relegation spot.Genoa are four points behind Torino, who lost 2-0 at Fiorentina.City rivals Sampdoria are on the brink of securing Serie A survival after staging a thrilling comeback from two goals down to win 3-2 at Parma.Fabio Quagliarella scored one and set up Federico Bonazzoli for the winner as Claudio Ranieri’s side won a third consecutive match for the first time this season.Ranieri, who memorably guided outsiders Leicester City to the 2016 English Premier League title, took over last October with the club sitting bottom of the table.But they have come back strong after the coronavirus lockdown, winning five of their last six games and are 12 points above the drop zone with four games left.Parma were two goals ahead at half-time thanks to Gervinho and an own goal from Samp goalkeeper Bartosz Bereszynski.But Julian Chabot pulled one back with his head two minutes after the break before Fabio Quagliarella curled in his 11th of the season with 21 minutes and teed up Federico Bonazzoli for the winner with 12 minutes to go.Sampdoria move ahead of Parma into 12th position as Roberto D’Aversa’s side, who had been targeting the Europa League places earlier this season, slump to their sixth defeat in seven games.

Following Budget Passage, Gov. Wolf Launches PAsmart with New Investments in Job and Skills Training

first_imgFollowing Budget Passage, Gov. Wolf Launches PAsmart with New Investments in Job and Skills Training SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Economy,  Education,  Innovation,  Jobs That Pay,  PAsmart,  Press Release,  Workforce Development Harrisburg, PA – Building on his commitment to strengthen our schools, build our workforce, and grow our economy, Governor Tom Wolf outlined his PAsmart initiative in the recently enacted 2018-19 state budget. As a first-of-its-kind $30 million investment, PAsmart will support workforce development through STEM and computer science education, apprenticeships and job training.“PAsmart is a new and innovative way of connecting people with the training they need for in-demand middle class jobs that employers need,” said Governor Wolf. “By investing in people and skills to create a strong and talented workforce we can attract more businesses to Pennsylvania and grow our economy for everyone.”PAsmart is built on recommendations of the governor’s Middle Class Task Force, which last year brought together the leaders from the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, education, and workforce development. At listening sessions throughout the commonwealth, the message was clear: there are jobs without trained people to fill them and some workers need new skills to get them, but a four-year college is not for everyone and a one-size fits-all approach will not work. Pennsylvania needs targeted investments in workforce development to strategically prepare for our economic future.PAsmart invests $20 million in computer science and STEM learningThe demand for jobs in science, engineering, math and technology (STEM) and computer science is rapidly growing. Pennsylvania will have an estimated 700,000 open STEM jobs this year, and over the next decade, seven in ten new jobs will require workers to use computers and new technologies in a constantly changing economy.PAsmart will:Increase STEM and computer science training for K-12 students;Increase the number of STEM and computer science educators;Expand job training through STEM and computer science “boot camps” to help adults change or advance their career.“Pennsylvania is a national leader in STEM education, but we must do more to stay competitive in the global economy,” said Governor Wolf. “We must give students and experienced workers who need new skills the opportunity to prepare for these emerging high-demand jobs that can support a family.”Earlier this year the State Board of Education, acting on the governor’s request to make computer science education available to all students, endorsed the Computer Science Teacher Association (CSTA) K-12 Standards. In STEM training, Pennsylvania is a national leader, ranking fifth for the number of STEM graduates and is home to five STEM learning ecosystems.PAsmart invests $10 million in apprenticeships, job trainingTo develop a stronger workforce pipeline, by 2025, the governor has set a goal of increasing the number of workers with training after high school from 47 percent today to 60 percent, as well as doubling the number of registered apprentices.PAsmart will:Invest $7 million to expand apprenticeships in traditional and non-traditional occupations, including youth pre-apprenticeship and registered apprenticeships at high schools and career and technical centers, and encourage businesses, community colleges and other higher providers to expand registered apprenticeships and work-based learning experiences for adults.Provide $3 million to build on the Department of Labor and Industry’s successful Industry Partnerships program, which connects similar businesses with educational and economic development partners to provide the job training.“After restoring education funding over the past four years to get children started on the right path, this $30 million investment for PAsmart will help to build a first in the nation workforce,” said Governor Wolf. “PAsmart is the next step in my efforts to strengthen the economy, build a thriving business climate, and ensure Pennsylvania residents have access to good paying, middle class jobs.”The funding will be disbursed by competitive grants administered by the Pennsylvania Workforce Development Board. Organizations eligible to apply include: local education agencies; intermediate units; postsecondary institutions; local workforce development boards; public libraries; employers; labor organizations; chambers of commerce; after-school providers; education, training and workforce providers; nonprofits; community organizations, and others.PAsmart will also improve the effectiveness of workforce development programs by breaking down bureaucratic barriers and silos among state agencies to close gaps in job training.As part of the PASmart initiative, the Wolf administration launched a new website earlier this year that is dedicated to helping people get information about pursing an education and career in Pennsylvania at any stage of life.center_img June 27, 2018last_img read more
