New York moves forward with plans to install 3GW of battery storage

first_imgNew York moves forward with plans to install 3GW of battery storage FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) on Monday filed its energy storage implementation plan, which aims to incentivize deployments and help the state meet its 3 GW by 2030 target.The plan targets retail and bulk market storage incentives, allocating $130 million and $150 million toward growth in those sectors, respectively, and proposing the remaining $70 million of a $350 million fund be allocated toward “opportunities that have the greatest potential to build a self-sustaining storage market.”NYSERDA’s filing is “an enormously positive step” in the state’s deployment goals, Bill Acker, executive director of New York Battery and Energy Storage Technology Consortium (NY-BEST), told Utility Dive. It will advance New York’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030 and shift to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040, he said.The plans follow Gov. Cuomo’s announcement earlier this month of new emissions regulations aimed at phasing out less efficient power plants and encouraging plant owners to replace the lost capacity with battery storage or other clean energy options. Along with the storage target, the state also wants to add 9,000 MW of offshore wind by 2035 and 6,000 MW of distributed solar by 2025.Under NYSERDA’s plan, “incentives are offered at a fixed amount per AC kWh of usable storage capacity.” Retail incentives can be applied to standalone or paired storage projects of 5 MW or less, considered on a first-come, first-serve basis, starting at $350/kWh and winding down as each funding block is filled.More: NYSERDA targets retail and bulk storage incentives as state aims for 3 GW by 2030last_img read more

Victor Moses coach threatens to leave Inter Milan

first_img Loading… Andrea Belotti was gifted the opener after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic fumbled a corner at the Torino star’s feet at San Siro – heaping further misery on Conte and his stuttering side. But Inter – without Romelu Lukaku – rallied in the second half thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Diego Godin and Lautaro Martinez, who ended his five-game scoreless drought. Conte added: “I honestly think we started the game very well. Then there was this corner kick. It was a period where there was an incident and we conceded a goal. “I find it sensational that Samir messed up: he hardly makes mistakes. Overall, I think it was a game we dominated. read also:Conte: ‘Inter on the right track’ “The goal could’ve made us nervous and caused us problems, but we did well to score our goals. “We’re much less predictable than we were before as now we attack with more men. The result must crown the effort we put in and when it doesn’t, it disappoints me. “We’ve been punished excessively by certain incidents, but we’re on the right track: playing attacking football and overloading our opponents’ box.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Inter head coach, Antonio Conte, said he will not “hesitate” to leave if the club are unhappy, though the Italian remains committed to the Nerazzurri project amid question marks over his future. Conte joined Inter at the start of the season but there have been reports the former Chelsea and Juventus boss could leave at the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Doubts have emerged amid Inter’s struggles and Conte’s frustrations, with the team failing to fire since the Serie A returned last month after the season was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Inter leapfrogged Lazio into the second position in the table, eight points behind leaders Juve with six games remaining, following Monday’s rallying 3-1 win at home to Torino, and Conte was asked about his future. “I was called to Inter for a three-year project, to bring them back where they deserve to be,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “Inevitably, that takes time. I came here with so much enthusiasm. I have faith. “I started a three-year project and [my contract] lasts three years. After that, if they want to extend my contract… I’m happy, I know there’s a long way to go, but I don’t want to overstay my welcome. “If everyone’s happy with the job I’m doing, and I think that’s the case right now, from what I’ve been told, then I don’t see why we shouldn’t go on. “If they’re not happy with the job I’m doing then I won’t hesitate to step aside.” Inter have seen their Scudetto bid derailed following a home defeat to Bologna and a draw with Hellas Verona, and they fell behind in the 17th minute on Monday.center_img Promoted ContentPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe World’s 7 Most Spectacular Railway StationsReal World Archaeological Finds That Would Stump Indiana JonesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesBest Car Manufacturers In The Worldlast_img read more


UW continues long road trip

first_imgKRIS UGARRIZA/Herald photoThe Wisconsin volleyball team will travel to Michigan State on Saturday for the second leg of four straight road matches.After beating Northwestern in four sets Wednesday, the Badgers (13-4, 3-2 Big Ten) have won it’s past three Big Ten matches to overcome an 0-2 start in conference play.“Absolutely the team is in a better mood,” head coach Pete Waite said. “Anytime we lose matches we are not a happy group, and that is what we battle for all the time, is to get the win. You get back in the gym and you look at things a little more closely, and you ask the players to crank it up a bit, and the players have done a great job with that.”UW has been winning games with a balanced offense, and the Badgers will look to continue that trend against the Spartans (10-5, 2-2 Big Ten). In their last match against Northwestern, no player recorded double-digit kills, but six players put away six or more.“We had some people step up and do some nice things,” Waite said in an interview with the UWBadgers.com. “Audra Jeffers had a big night for us, and overall there’s a pretty good balance. We had seven people that finished up with anywhere from four kills to nine kills, and that means we had a good balanced attack, and we were happy about that.”MSU started off the season hot, going 10-0 in September. The Spartans have stumbled recently, however, losing their last two to Indiana and Penn State.The Badgers must continue their hot play if they wish to beat the Spartans in East Lansing. MSU has gone 6-0 at home for the season, their longest home winning streak since 2002.The Spartans boast one of the top freshmen in the Big Ten in setter Natalie Emro. Emro leads the team in assists at 10.58 per set and is second on the team in blocks. Emro has also chipped in as a hitter, averaging 1.25 kills per set while hitting a .309. Besides Emro, MSU features one of the top middle blockers in the conference, junior Vanessa King. King ranks second on the team in total kills but leads the Spartan regulars in hitting at .357. If UW is to win, it must find a way to get around King’s blocking, where the junior averages 1.25 blocks per set.Even though the Badgers have won their last three conference games, the team believes it needs to keep the intensity up to remain competitive in the Big Ten.“Practice has remained intense this week,” setter Nikki Klingsporn said. “It is still going to keep getting more intense and more intense just because we are getting farther and farther into the season. We need to keep competing if we want to get to the top by the end of the year.”last_img read more
