The UK energy company has published a nine-point action plan to set out what is seen as key issues that governments, regulators and statutory bodies need to work collaboratively with the offshore wind industry to address. The policy framework should acknowledge that direct competition between fixed bottom and floating wind technologies is not feasible in the near term, SSE Renewables said. SSE Renewables believes that floating wind will be needed to deliver 40 GW of offshore wind by 2030 and is proposing that the UK government’s manifesto commitment to enable floating wind be followed up on with a fully developed strategy and accompanying policies as soon as possible. SSE Renewables has warned that the cost of offshore wind will not be the reason for the UK missing its target of 40 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030, but rather the significant barriers to deployment, many of which are increasing. The paper has also called for strategic investment to support the development of the UK supply chain, as well as for the UK wind fleet to be more geographically diverse. The barriers the industry is currently facing range from consenting challenges, to grid and aviation radar issues, as well as reform of electricity market design, SSE Renewables said. Among others, the action plan calls for annual Contracts for Difference (CfD) auction rounds and more regular and increased seabed leasing volumes. ”The recent economic downturn caused by the coronavirus outbreak has resulted in a fall in carbon dioxide emissions, but for all the wrong reasons. This will likely be short-lived as global economies seek to rebuild themselves once we begin exiting this crisis. That’s why it’s important we continue to make the investments we need in new low carbon infrastructure and why we should maintain focus on the UK’s net zero target,’‘ Paul Cooley, Director of Generation Development at SSE, said.

“That’s just Nick,” Scott said. Yet, this hardly marks Scott’s most difficult coaching project. That title still belongs to Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith when he played for Scott with the former New Orleans Hornets from 2004-06. The Hornets traded Smith in the 2006 offseason to Chicago as part of a deal that landed Tyson Chandler. Chicago soon traded Smith to Denver. “J.R. was a little more defiant. Nick is not defiant,” Scott said. “J.R. was tougher to deal with and was young and bullheaded. We butted heads a few times. I told him, ‘You can’t win this match. The one thing I control is minutes.’”Scott has restricted some of Young’s minutes, too. He sat Young in the second half of a game last month after disliking his effort and body language. Young also reacted incredulously to Scott resting him two weeks ago despite receiving medical clearance to play after nursing a sprained right ankle. But the two have since talked things out.“With Nick, we haven’t had that type of (negative) relationship,” Scott said. “We’ve had some stupid things and he’s said some stupid things. But we haven’t been going at it like that.” PORTLAND — A simple development unfolded that suggested Lakers forward Nick Young may have responded well to Byron Scott’s demanding expectations. Young arrived to the team bus on time here a day after Scott fined him $1,500 for showing up late to Staples Center. “When you take money from players, they get the message that coach ain’t playing,” Scott said before the Lakers played the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday at Moda Center. “Rules are rules. My biggest thing is to be professional.”This has marked a trying season for Young. He struggled with his shooting accuracy, including shooting 32 percent in January. He has collected five technical fouls. Scott reported Young’s tardiness to games has happened other times already. Hence, Scott predicted the 29-year-old Young will not suddenly change. One of those things entailed Young’s recent contention that a dolphin nearly killed him when he vacationed last summer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.“When I started to ride the dolphin, for some reason he took me all the way to the bottom,” Young said. “He tried to drown me. But I jumped out of the water, took off the life vest and stayed outside.”Scott shook his head as reporters relayed Young’s story to him.“I don’t believe that,” Scott said, chuckling.Yet, Young stood by what happened. He also added he and his girlfriend/hip hop artist Iggy Azalea will vacation in Hawaii during All-Star weekend and go dolphin watching. “I’m a nice swimmer,” Young said. “But I stay out of danger’s way.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
