Bangladesh taking second look at 28GW of planned coal-fired generating capacity

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享China Dialogue:Bangladesh’s minister of power, energy and mineral resources, Nasrul Hamid, surprised energy watchers recently when he said the country is planning to “review” all but three of 29 planned coal plants.“We are keeping the three coal-fired power plants that are under construction. At present, we are aiming for [40 to 41GW of total generation capacity], where only 5GW is coal based,” said Minister Hamid during a webinar run by the Centre for Policy Dialogue. “We are reviewing how we can move from coal-based power plants.”Bangladesh has one of the largest coal power pipelines in the world, a total of 29 power plants amounting to 33.2GW of capacity, according to a 2019 study by an Australian organisation that tracks fossil fuel investment. If the minister’s comments become government policy, up to 26 power plants accounting for 28GW of capacity could be put under review. That’s 90% of the coal pipeline.“It would dramatically swing the nation’s power development away from coal,” said Simon Nicholas, energy finance analyst with the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA).“Coal power is no more a cheap option and it’s becoming more expensive for imported coal. Hence, the government is reconsidering its earlier plan on coal-power generation in its energy mix”, Mohammad Hossain, director general of the ministry’s research body, Power Cell, commented in the webinar, echoing Minister Hamid’s suggestion to review coal power plans.The 29 coal power plants currently in Bangladesh’s pipeline are at varying stages of development. The three that Minister Hamid suggested will continue as planned – Rampal, Matarbari and Payra – have entered construction and are nearing completion. Their financiers include Chinese, Japanese and Indian export credit and international cooperation agencies. Other projects have signed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) deals, equity investment deals or are only at the stage of memoranda of understanding.Though of a much larger scale than elsewhere, Bangladesh’s potential pivot from coal is not an isolated incident this year. In June, the 700MW Qasim coal power project in Pakistan was cancelled, in large part due to lack of demand. A number of Vietnam’s coal power projects, long plagued with financing and construction start problems, are also looking increasingly unfeasible in the post-Covid world. In a consultation session held earlier this month, Vietnam’s Energy Institute suggested that the country’s next decade-long power plan due to come into force next year could see up to 9.5GW of planned coal capacity cancelled and 7.5GW postponed until at least 2030, about half of the country’s total planned coal power.[Tom Baxter]More: Bangladesh may ditch 90% of its planned coal power Bangladesh taking second look at 28GW of planned coal-fired generating capacitylast_img read more

Vestal Public Library holds a weekly park scavenger hunt for kids

first_imgIn partnership with the Town of Vestal Recreation, the library started Book Scavenger at the Park.  Lake also mentioned the scavenger hunt is open to anyone — not just Vestal residents.  Each week the library hides cards with a photo of a book cover at different Vestal parks like the Vestal Center Park.  VESTAL (WBNG) — The Vestal Public Library is doing their part to promote literacy and get kids active during the pandemic. Anna Lake, youth services librarian, says this scavenger helps students get out of their house and get some fresh air.  The scavenger hunt is open for ages two through 12. center_img When a child finds a card they can take it to the library and receive a free copy of that book.  “It promotes literacy, as well,” Lake said. “It does get them into the library but not all at once which is the safest for the paterons and our staff.” Only one book is available per child each week.  For more information on the next location for the scavenger hunt, check out their Facebook page.last_img read more

Dimitri Payet: Hammers have learned lesson from Leicester defeat

first_img And midfielder Payet, who has starred in the Hammers’ attack with three goals so far this term, says manager Slaven Bilic has solved their early-season defensive wobbles. “We know that in view of the potential going forward, we’re capable of scoring at any given moment. If we’re not conceding, that’s going to bring us points and that’s what’s happened,” the Frenchman told the club website. “I might have been a little sceptical if you told me where we’d be, but we’ve shown that our position’s not happened by chance. We continue to take points, that’s the important thing. “I wouldn’t necessarily say (we’re winning away) with ease, but it’s true that we’ve got a defensive unit that’s tough to budge. “Of course we followed the manager’s game plan to the letter. It’s been some time now since those defeats at home that we took a close look at our defensive play.” Bilic will be without winger Michail Antonio, who is cup-tied, while right-back Carl Jenkinson will be checked over after limping off at City. Angelo Ogbonna (hamstring), Alex Song (ankle) and Enner Valencia (knee) are still out. Bilic must decide whether to hand Andy Carroll his first start of the season after the striker made his comeback from his latest injury absence as a substitute in the 2-0 win over Newcastle a week ago. Press Association Dimitri Payet believes West Ham have learned the lessons of their defeat by Leicester last month as they prepare to meet the Foxes again in the Capital One Cup.center_img The Hammers have climbed to third in the Premier League after a memorable run of away wins against Arsenal, Liverpool and, on Saturday, leaders Manchester City. The only blips in their fine start to the season were home losses to Bournemouth and Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester, who they face at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night. last_img read more

Four different players score for Syracuse in blowout win over Lindenwood

first_imgIt took Syracuse almost two periods to shake off the playoff nerves.But once the Orange got one goal, its offensive brigade kicked into gear.Four different players scored as Syracuse (19-13-3, 9-8-3 College Hockey America) pulled away from Lindenwood (5-25-3, 5-13-2) late to win 4-1 and take a one-game lead in the best-of-three playoff series.“Everyone’s nervous, but I think after the first period we got the nerves out,” sophomore Nicole Renault said. “We were able to play our game, and obviously it was better than theirs today.”The only action of the first period came after Lindenwood goalkeeper Nicole Hensley made a sprawling save off of a Syracuse deflection in front of the net.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBoth sides combined for only 13 shots in a period where neither team was able to muster any offensive threat.“I thought we had a little bit of a slow start in the first period,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “It was kind of teams feeling each other out even though we’ve played four times this year.”It wasn’t until the 2:37 mark of the second period when freshman Heather Schwarz scored her first goal in more than two months to put the Orange ahead 1-0.Renault skated down the left side and after cutting to the middle, she slotted a pass across her body to Schwarz. The freshman one-timed the puck from almost an impossible angle into the bottom right corner for her second goal of the year.The Orange widened its lead three minutes into the third period when junior Allie LaCombe found herself in open space at the right circle.After receiving a pass from senior Caitlin Roach, LaCombe calmly slotted the puck into a wide-open right side of the net to put SU ahead 2-0.“I saw (Roach) take the puck to the red line, and I just busted my butt to the net,” LaCombe said. “She passed it over through the defender’s stick, and I happened to bury it.”Before the public address announcer could even finish relaying the scoring information from LaCombe’s goal, the Orange scored its third.It only took 27 seconds for Syracuse to virtually seal the game, as Renault scored her seventh of the season.She corralled the puck just in front of the blue line and slid a shot on the ice toward goal. It somehow evaded the entire cluster in front of the net and found the bottom right corner to put the hosts up 3-0.But Renault was hesitant to take full credit for her impressive goal.“I think Julie Knerr might’ve tipped it in,” Renault said. “They were a really good team at blocking shots, so getting it through was huge.“Either way, a goal is a goal.”With 5:32 left, freshman Jessica Sibley joined the party with an impressive shot.She burst down the right side, cut across the middle, and wristed a shot across her body. It flew just past Hensley’s outstretched glove and into the top right corner.After the majority of the first two periods provided little spark, LaCombe had a simple explanation for the Orange’s third period fireworks.“I mean it’s the playoffs,” LaCombe said. “I think everyone buckled down and focused on passing, shooting and eventually scoring four goals.”With 3:33 remaining, Lindenwood salvaged its only goal of the game after Caitlyn Post pounced on a scuffle in front of the net.Although the goal did cause a blemish in Jenesica Drinkwater’s otherwise flawless performance, it did nothing to change a game in which the outcome was already decided.After a string of close games that the Orange had to fight for in the final minutes, it finally was able to rest comfortably in the final minutes.“In the third period, we answered on the scoreboard,” Flanagan said. “But we had to frustrate them by just making better plays.”The Orange comes right back out for game two against the Lions at 2 p.m. on Saturday.“It’s definitely a quick turnaround,” Renault said. “They’re going to be playing desperate tomorrow, so we need to play just as desperate.” Comments Published on March 1, 2014 at 1:04 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USC Athletics dismisses booster over racist tweets

first_img“I did not intend my statements to be racist or directed at a race, but they have been interpreted that way,” Brown told the Daily Trojan. “And, as I said, it is probably my fault if they were misinterpreted because I wasn’t clear in what I was referring to … This is just me being stupid and careless about it.” The booster, identified as Marla Brown, sparked public outrage from USC and surrounding Los Angeles communities when her tweets, most of which were written Saturday, went viral Sunday. The Daily Trojan asked Brown for comment on that particular tweet.  In a Twitter direct message to the Daily Trojan, Pittman said he did not personally know Brown but that she had previously attended a Salute to Troy event, where fans can meet and take pictures with players and coaches.  “It’s just an observation that I wrote about based upon what I was seeing,” she said. “I don’t think that I’m the only person that shares that view. So it’s an observation that I made and a comment that I made — that I think the community could help each other if we do things peacefully and in a constructive way instead of rioting and looting, as you see what’s going on now.” USC Athletics says it notified the dismissed booster she is no longer allowed at football games or other events. (Daily Trojan file photo) One of Brown’s tweets came in a response to Dr. Eugene Gu, the founder of the anti-smoking organization Cool Quit, under an original tweet by Trump. Brown said that at the time she made the comments, she didn’t see them as racist and now wishes she had clarified that she was not referring to peaceful protesters, but rather to rioters and looters.  Brown responded to Pittman’s message by claiming that the tweets were “made in a fit of anger at circumstances in general” and were not “directed at anyone’s race.”  Brown identified herself as a Los Angeles Police Department union attorney and a USC football booster in her Twitter bio. Users responded to the original thread calling for others to report her to the California State Bar, but shortly after the tweets went viral on Sunday, she claimed she no longer worked for the LAPD union. Brown has since deleted her Twitter account.  “I’m embarrassed, I’m horrified at what I did and I’m sorry,” she said. “And the consequences are what they are.” “Following an immediate investigation into the matter, we informed the individual that their season ticket and Trojan Athletic Fund membership privileges have been revoked and their payments will be promptly returned,” Bohn said in a statement on his Twitter. “Their account has been flagged in our system to prevent future purchases.”  The USC Athletic Department cut ties Monday with a USC football booster whose tweets athletic director Mike Bohn deemed “abhorrent and blatantly racist” in the wake of nationwide protests over the police killing of George Floyd.  “People like you promote destruction,” her message read. “It’s no wonder the black community never improves it’s lot. No responsibility. No consequences. At this point they deserve the result.” center_img “The athletic department did what I think they feel they had to do,” she said. “I think they should’ve reached out to me regardless of their decision — at least contacted me personally. But they didn’t.” The athletic department claimed it did contact Brown directly to inform her of the decision.  “Racism and hate speech will not be tolerated,” read the entirety of Bohn’s tweet accompanying an image of the statement. Brown’s tweets gained traction on the social media site when an unnamed user with the tag @TheStolenBeer tweeted a thread displaying several of Brown’s messages. They included, among other statements, calls for looters and protesters to be shot and for President Donald Trump to classify Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization.  Brown agreed with Bohn’s characterization of the statements as “abhorrent.” “If you truly believe the things you have said, I politely ask you to take me out of your profile picture,” Pittman wrote in a retweet of the post by @TheStolenBeer.  Brown said she did not feel she was in a position to tell the athletic department whether or not it handled the situation properly by ending their relationship. Another USC football player, redshirt junior offensive tackle Jalen McKenzie, also expressed his disapproval of Brown’s posts.  “This is disappointing, I know my true Trojan family would never,” Pittman’s original tweet said. “In times like this, it is important for us to stand together.”  Several users called for the University to ban Brown from athletic events and cancel her booster status. One comment, which had 98 likes at the time of publication, read, “She’s only a fan of black lives when they’re entertaining her by playing football at USC.” “Yea if you’re like this don’t ask any of us for pics,” McKenzie commented in a retweet of the same viral expository post. Along with his statement announcing the consequences, Bohn thanked the USC community for helping draw attention to the tweets and emphasized the department’s solidarity with the Black community.  Brown’s since-deleted Twitter bio also described her as a “Fan of USC,” and her profile picture featured herself with former Trojan wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr., a recent Indianapolis Colts draft pick. Pittman retweeted the viral post containing the screenshots of Brown’s messages and added a comment asking her to take down the photo. last_img read more
