What’s more is that the projects aren’t all that far from going on-line, CEO of ACCIONA’s Energy Division in North America, Rafael Esteban boldly shared: “We will bring a significant portion of the portfolio into service between 2021 and 2023.”Specially, ACCIONA envisions commissioning eight projects by the end of 2023, adding around 1.5 GW of peak capacity to its North American renewable energy portfolio.And while 3 GW of solar is massive, 1 GW of battery storage is, quite literally, unlike anything we have ever seen in the United States. To date, the country has only 899 MW of operating batter storage. And while that figure is anticipated to reach 1 GW by year’s end, even then this is 1/67th of the total installed solar capacity and an even smaller percent of installed renewable energy capacity.However, potentially the most impressive part about the deal is that none of the projects are located in what would be considered strong, traditional, solar markets. The states included are Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma.In case anyone was wondering, this 3 GW purchase represents more solar capacity than all of those states currently have on-line combined, and it’s not particularly close, either. Remember that whole bit about the future of solar being driven by the Midwest? Seems like it’s already starting to come true.More: ACCIONA buys solar + storage on a national scale Spain’s Acciona makes big foray into U.S. solar and battery storage marketslast_img read more

first_imgThe Confederation of African Football (CAF), thursday announced that the next edition of its premier tournament after the one in Cameroon will hold in June/July of 2023.According to the acting scribe of CAF, Abel Bah, the event would hold at a different calendar from the AFCON 2022 in Cameroon. The preference of January/February date for the edition in Cameroon is because of weather situation of the Central African country.The timing of the competition has been the subject of speculation after President Ahmad stated in June that it would take place in 2023 while saying he ‘did not know what month’. “As of today, the 2023 Nations Cup is planned for June/July because, to make it clear, in the regulations we have decided to play all Nations Cups in June/July,” Bah told BBC Sport Africa.In 2017, CAF decided to schedule all future Nations Cup for these months, enshrining the change in its tournament regulations.The next Nations Cup will take place in January 2022 however owing to unfavourable weather conditions in Cameroon in June and July, when the host country suffers some of the wettest months of the year.“The Nations Cup in Cameroon, after the request of the authorities, was postponed to January/February,” added Bah.“As of today, we haven’t received the same request from Ivorian authorities.”Given that Cote d’ivoire suffers its wettest month of the year in June, such a request should not be ruled out.However a move to earlier dates in 2023 could prove difficult as the 2022 World Cup will be played between 21 November and 18 December.With a Nations Cup in early 2022 and mid-2023, and the 2022 World Cup it means some of Africa’s leading footballers could play three major tournaments in the space of 18 months.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
