Utilities reaping financial benefits from coal plant closures and turn toward renewables

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Power generators across the U.S. are not only sticking to plans to retire coal-fired power plants despite the pro-coal Trump administration, they are touting the cost savings of doing so while pushing a further transition away from the fuel.Several utilities with the largest planned coal plant retirements confirmed they are not changing course after the administration finished the Affordable Clean Energy in mid-June, S&P Global Market Intelligence recently reported. Retiring coal plants and investing in other forms of generation is helping utilities across the country hit their own emission reduction targets while mitigating some of the risks coming from increased scrutiny around climate change, a review of power generators’ second-quarter earnings calls so far suggests.About 9.7 GW of coal capacity is expected to retire in 2019 alone, nearly as much as the 13.5 GW that came offline in 2018 when power generators recorded the second-highest level of coal retirements completed in recent decades. With natural gas prices at 20-year lows and showing no signs of increasing significantly in the near term, pressure on coal generators is likely to continue.“You know there was once a time when we had to make a sucker’s choice between clean and expensive energy or the cheap and dirty stuff,” said CMS Energy Corp. President and CEO Patricia Poppe on a July 25 call. “That just isn’t true anymore.”The Michigan Public Service Commission recently signed off on a CMS Energy plan that sets a path for the retirement of the company’s coal plants while adding 6,000 MW of solar energy in the longer term. The result, Poppe said, is not a “trade-off” but a “trade-up” as the transition supports “affordable bills, a cleaner environment and a higher quality mix of earnings.”WEC Energy Group Inc. Executive Chairman Gale Klappa said recent coal-fired power plant closures decreased the company’s operating and maintenance cost by an estimated $100 million on an annual basis. The utility recently shut down three of its less efficient coal-fired power plants in Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan.More ($): US power generators reporting savings, other benefits from phasing out coal Utilities reaping financial benefits from coal plant closures and turn toward renewableslast_img read more

first_imgBy Dialogo July 26, 2010 Peru and Chile agreed to relaunch cooperation mechanisms in order to work together in the fight against drug trafficking and also agreed to inform one another about their military expenditures, the Peruvian foreign ministry announced. The agreement was reached during the visit to Lima by the Chilean deputy secretary of foreign relations, Fernando Schmidt, for the Ninth Meeting of the Peruvian-Chilean Consultation and Political Coordination Mechanism with his Peruvian counterpart, Néstor Popolizio. Both officials highlighted the upcoming technical meeting between officials from the two countries’ defense and foreign ministries, “with a view to reviving the coordination mechanisms aimed at validating common standards for measuring military expenditures, to be held in Lima on 26 July.” Schmidt and Popolizio also affirmed the importance of continuing work on demining in the border region, a statement by the foreign ministry indicated. The document indicated the need to work together in the fight against drug trafficking and its serious consequences. For this reason, the two officials agreed that the Sixth Meeting of the Mixed Commission on Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances should be held this year, at the same time that they reaffirmed their desire to collaborate on closing their borders to drug trafficking. The deputy foreign ministers made reference to the importance of continuing to develop bilateral trade, which has reached a value of three billion dollars. They also agreed on the importance of coordinating their participation in the regional and multilateral forums of which both countries are members, such as APEC and the Latin American Pacific Rim Forum. Peru and Chile continue to pursue a dispute over maritime borders in the Pacific Ocean, which is being heard by the International Court of Justice in The Hague in consequence of a suit filed by Peru in 2008. Santiago maintains that the borders have been determined, and Lima does not consider this to be the case. The two presidents, Alan García of Peru and Sebastián Piñera of Chile, met in May at the Euro-Latin American summit in Madrid, where they announced progress in “thawing” their relations.last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The Democrat-led New York State Assembly elected Tuesday a New York City lawmaker as their first new speaker to replace Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan), who resigned after being arrested on federal corruption charges.Aside from being the chamber’s first new leader in 21 years, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) is the first African American to hold the top post. His ascension comes amid renewed calls for ethics reform in the scandal-plagued state legislature. One day earlier, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he wouldn’t sign the state budget unless ethics reform is passed first—effectively threatening a government shutdown.“This change in leadership will bring about much-needed reform,” Heastie told the Assembly in his acceptance speech immediately after the vote. “The actions of a few have given calls for cynicism….We will change the cynicism into trust once again.”In his opening remarks, Heastie said the reforms must include increasing transparency on how public funds are spent, new rules on disclosing legislators’ outside income and giving lawmakers their first raise in 16 years so they don’t need to rely as much on outside income.Cuomo detailed his proposals during a speech Monday at the New York University School of Law. He called for legislators to fully explain the source of outside income, stripping pensions from lawmakers convicted of crimes, ending the practice of using campaign funds to pay personal expenses and tightening campaign finance rules.“The legislature will not want to pass new ethics laws,” Cuomo said. “Legislators will say that this is an intrusion into their private business and they will be right, but my answer is that their private business has intruded into state government first, and that public service is a privilege and an honor and it is a sacrifice that they must make.”State Senate Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre), who regained control of the state’s upper legislative chamber in the November elections, signaled support for reform as well amid reports that he is also under investigation—reports that he denied. “We are always open to building on the reforms we’ve already enacted to improve the state’s ethics and disclosure laws for all branches of government, and will take a close look at what the governor is proposing in the hopes of working together to achieve a positive result,” Skelos said in a statement. He noted that he expected the budget to pass on time.Assemb. Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove), chairman of the ethics committee, said any discussion about such reform cannot come without public hearings to fully hash out the proposals.“In discussions with many Assemblymembers over the last days, it becomes obvious that the word reform has many meanings and seems, like beauty, to be in the eye of the beholder, ranging from new district office furniture to term limits to the return of member item discretionary funding,” Lavine said in an email to fellow legislators. “Some of my colleagues want to adopt reforms immediately. While this desire may be a natural reaction to our crisis, there is absolutely no unanimity on the form these reforms should take.”Among the proposals Cuomo called for was publicly financed elections—a plan designed to mitigate the influence of money in political campaigns. But, a pilot program for such a plan famously failed last year by only applying the state comptroller’s race and being enacted midway through the campaign cycle. That flop paled in comparison to the fallout from Cuomo’s Moreland Commission on public corruption, which he disbanded before its investigation was complete last year.Preet Brarara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, subpoenaed those files and continued that investigation, leading to Silver’s arrest for allegedly using his power to earn more than $4 million in bribes and kickbacks through two private law firms. Silver pleaded not guilty to fraud, and although he resigned from his leadership post, he has not vacated his Assembly seat. Brarara, who has said the investigation into Albany public corruption is continuing, warned: “Stay tuned.”last_img read more

first_imgAnother great proof that investing in events is not a cost, but an investment.After great success with Advent in Zagreb which last year generated about 500 million tourist spending, the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb has accepted a new tourist product, which in its second edition was still bigger, better quality and more meaningful. The fact that the Festival of Light is a complete success and that it has the potential to be another major tourist event that generates a motive for arrival is shown by the fact that during the recent Zagreb Festival of Light, according to the Zagreb Tourist Board, 28% more arrivals and as many as 44 % more nights.Compared to last year’s period of the Festival, when the Tourist Board organized this event for the first time, this year there were 10.652 arrivals and 21.592 overnight stays in four days. In the mentioned period, there were 3.032 arrivals of domestic tourists (growth 32%) and 7.620 foreign tourists (growth 26%), and the most numerous were guests from: South Korea, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina, USA and Germany. Out of the total number of overnight stays, domestic tourists realized 5.094 (growth of 30%), and foreign tourists 16.498 (growth of 48%).In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ””I am extremely pleased with these excellent results, and especially with the fact that certain markets (Slovenia, Austria, Hungary) in which TZGZ conducted online and offline marketing campaigns achieved an increase of more than 50%, which indicates the success of both the campaign and the Festival lights Zagreb. “Said the director of the Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld. Also, as seen, and which is often he forgets, growth is not generated accidentally, rather than planned and strategically – a targeted promotional campaign in targeted markets.The results so far for the first two and a half months are also very good. More precisely, for the period 01.01.-15.03.2018. the number of arrivals increased by 17% (152.762) and the number of overnight stays by 24% (315.474) compared to the same period last year. These are data that once again confirm that Zagreb has become an unavoidable tourist destination and the Tourist Board expects that such a positive trend will continue in the coming months.last_img read more

first_imgThe Tourist Board of the City of Bakar began intensive work in 2009, 15 years after the closure of Koksara, a symbol of Bakar’s industrial past and the main reason why Bakar was bypassed in a wide arc, both occasional travelers and all Kvarner guests. And that is why all those people and destinations should be publicly praised, who, in spite of everyone and everything, are struggling and actively working to change the paradigm and seek their place under the sun. Naval battle is one of the most important events in the life of the city, but a visit to Bakar in the summer months will lead you to another, extremely important “maritime story” that reflects the insufficiently revived feature of Bakar. In its glorious days, Copper was a city of sailors who sailed the world’s seas. The most important moment for the development of maritime affairs was certainly the founding of the Maritime School Bakar, which began operating in 1849, 66 years before the founding of London! Naval School Bakar is the oldest vocational school in Croatia, and it is adorned with the fascinating fact that it had the first school ship of the Merchant Navy. Margit not only in the Adriatic but also in the Mediterranean! This year, it celebrated another anniversary, the uninterrupted 25 years of the international naval rowing academy regatta. The great Andrija Mohorovičić, a world-renowned scientist who came into direct contact with meteorology in Bakar for the first time, also worked as a professor at the Bakar Maritime School, which resulted in the establishment of a meteorological station in Bakar in 1887. In the school there is a memorial classroom dedicated to this great man, and in the interior of the school there are valuable items related to seafaring, as well as an emotional dedication – a paddle painted by the hand of our artist Voja Radoičić. Quality offer of private accommodation, Margaret’s summer full of events, Tuna fest and city tours for organized groups with a welcome of copper associations; City Guards Bakar, Težakinja and peasant from Praputnjak, Bakarska gentlemen and captains, then a tour of the old town where the most important are the Frankopan castle, the Turkish and Roman houses and the church of St. Andrije ap. with catacombs, Hreljinska Gradina, the lake that emerges and disappears in Ponikve and the Bakar precipices where Bakarska vodica is created – these are just some of the trump cards to visit Bakar, says the director of the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar, Sonja Jelušić Marić SUMMER CONCERTS IN THE ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE OF THE FRANKOPAN CASTLE Photo: Klaudio Vrančić, RI Ring Tourist stories from Bakar this summer, I transfer below the article. You can find a detailed program of Margaret’s flight and the tourist offer of the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar on the website www.tz-bakar.hr Exactly such destinations should be promoted and given a chance, because they certainly deserved it and fought to get the right opportunity to show themselves. And here they definitely need the help of travel agencies that sell destinations and various additional tourist facilities. As in the example of the Via Mea agency, which I hope is only the first in a series, I hereby invite all other agencies to focus on Bakar, which already has something to offer today. Something new and different, and it is the content that is key, not just selling the sun and the sea. Proof of this thesis is the recent Tuna Fest in Bakar, where travel agencies, saturated with standard offers, saw their opportunity to offer and tell a new story. And in Bakar. Bakar Guard / Photo: TZ Bakar A small wing swing, he started we can say a small revolution in Bakar. Of course, looking from the outside and the bigger picture, these are small numbers, but for Bakar it is more important that the tourist economy started and how the local population woke up and became more active. And this is the first prerequisite for growth and development, because without the involvement of local people there is neither authenticity nor sustainable development. The first of May, apart from the sun, brought Bakar a significantly different atmosphere than in previous years. By the way, the quiet and sleepy town was “revived” by more than 200 guests from Austria who arrived in Bakar organized by the Tourist Board of Bakar and Crikvenica agency Via Mea and its Austrian partner Papageno to enjoy a specially organized program for them. Fest ”. The May Day group is just one of ten Austrian and German excursion groups within which Bakar will meet about 2000 excursionists in the pre-season and post-season.  Although burdened by the weight of the industrial past and complete isolation in the tourist-developed Kvarner, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar managed to achieve what many considered impossible with persistent and thoughtful ten years of effort – to turn Bakar into a desirable excursion destination despite numerous, still current, shortcomings. And a traditional summer event called Margaret’s summer from 29.6. to 27.7. will mark some of the most glorious moments in Bakar’s history, which, combined with great entertainment for all generations, will be a good reason to come to Bakar, point out the Bakar Tourist Board. 240 YEARS OF THE CHARTER OF MARY THERESIA – WALK WITH THE QUEEN OF THE ROYAL CITY OF COPPER Yes, it takes a lot of energy, effort and time, but it is certainly possible to make great tourist stories, change the image of a tourist destination into a positive one and start a tourist economy, which is the most important thing. Bakarska vodica / Photo: TZ Bakar As I mentioned above, in a practically impossible mission, in addition to the tourist giants in Kvarner and despite the bad reputation of Bakar and as other smaller tourist communities would say, “we have no resources, both financial and human, TZ Bakra is proof of how to make A “miracle” in those conditions as well. Of course, everything revolves around people and the desire for positive change or market development. Fight and bite and do the best you can according to your conditions. it’s easiest to say, you can’t. Margaret’s Fair within Naval battles It is a great opportunity to taste many delicacies of local producers, traditional dishes made by local caterers waiting for you on every corner, but also souvenirs of the City of Bakar – Bakar Baskot crowned with a gold medal for quality in 1919 in Paris. You will find a plaque that testifies to this important recognition on the wall of the bakery where the baškoti, the legendary Baškotarne. Her employees will be happy to share the story of this with you, twice baked, round bread pastries of great importance to the copper sailors for whom Bakar is widely known. Due to its dryness, baškot could last more than six months and was very suitable for eating on long voyages. It was carried instead of bread on longer fishing trips, and traditionally dipped in red wine, tea or white coffee, and you can dip it in Bakar water – another symbol of the City of Bakar! Thus, the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar is the first tourist board in Croatia to organize a course “Guide interpreter” and gathered in one place 16 professionals, more precisely professionals from all over Croatia who, studying Bakar’s heritage, mastered the skills of interpretive guidance. The creator of the course was the European Association of Heritage Interpretation Professionals, Interpret Europe, a professional association that brings together 900 professionals from 50 countries. Through a series of courses held by their members in their countries, it conducts various educations with the aim of better interpretation of heritage, an indispensable part of cultural tourism. The scale is set high, in Bakar. The naval battle is an unavoidable event in Bakar, which celebrates the last, unsuccessful Venetian attack on Bakar and because of which almost 15 people visit this city every year in mid-July. Visit it too, 000. at the jubilee Naval Battle, due to which, for the tenth time, the night peace of the Bakar Bay will be disturbed by the bows of “Venetian sailing ships” creeping to its shore where they will be greeted by a fiery Bakar “welcome” – numerous cannons and holsters of the Bakar City Guard and Croatian Army the whole of Croatia. Bakrani and their guests will celebrate the successful defense of the city with spectacular fireworks, which will make Bakar shine again with its ancient, glorious splendor, unjustly extinguished by industrialization. Children can also count on great fun because a special program called will be organized for them A small naval battle under the sponsorship of INA with a lot of content and the possibility of visiting a ship of the Croatian Navy! More about the cooperation between Via Mea and TZ Bakra and the Tuna Fest program can be found here /// SONJA JELUŠIĆ MARIĆ, TZ BAKAR: HERITAGE AS A FOUNDATION, INCLUSION OF THE LOCAL COMMUNITY AND CREATION OF EXCURSION PROGRAMS ARE OUR RECIPE FOR TOURIST SUCCESS At the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, Bakar was the largest Croatian city in terms of population, and the revival of its glorious, still unknown to many, past awakened this historic Kvarner town as a tourist destination. And not in abnormal conditions, one can succeed, and that is why it is really ridiculous to listen to the various excuses of other colleagues from smaller TZs, and with much greater resources and potentials than Bakar, how something cannot be done. It can always be done, in fact, but it requires hard work and struggle. Replica of the charter of Maria Theresa / Photo: Miljenko Segulja Also, when you are “small” then you have to be fast, creative, innovative and find your niche before others, ie you can react much earlier and start something for the first time in Croatia and thus put your destination in focus. Also, you have to turn your weakness into an advantage, because due to the weaker development so far, you can look at the bigger picture and see all the advantages and disadvantages of others, good and bad concepts, and thus set a high scale in a short time, introduce many innovations in a short time. some mistakes made by others. Or simply, you learn from other people’s experiences, and you can react because you are “small” and you start from the “beginning”. When we asked what can be seen and experienced in Bakar, the Bakar Tourist Board sent us a couple of main tourist stories, at least for those agencies that are meeting Bakar for the first time, and which can be a great motive for coming. And everyone’s motive, of course, is earnings. And it is the earnings that have started to be made in Bakar, even in the pre-season, which has been a foreign concept in Bakar so far, so more and more local partners are involved in the activities of the Bakar Tourist Board and want to be part of the new tourist story of Bakar. 10. MARITIME BATTLE – SAILING BOATS, CANNONS AND FIREWORKS IN HONOR OF VICTORY OVER THE Venetians The sounds of baroque music will resonate through the streets of Bakar, 29.6, at the opening of Donkey’s Flight, when you will be able to walk through history with Maria Theresa, who granted it the status of a free royal city 240 years ago. This year A walk through history it will be in the spirit of the time ruled by this fascinating ruler, and you will learn all about her deep trace in the history of Bakar in the interpretive tour of the guide Marjeta Trkman Kravar while you will be able to see a replica of the charter in the center of Bakar. In the Baroque period, it will be possible to travel by visiting the Baroque castle, which will be set up on the Vrata Square by guests from Slovenia, the Count and Countess of Statenberg, painting with a luxurious carriage from that time that will drive through the city and tasting Baroque specialties.

These concerts, in the heart of the old Bakar town, are traditionally held at the beginning of each Margaret’s summer and attract a large number of visitors. The Frankopan castle, currently under renovation, is one of the most famous sights of the City of Bakar, and with its size and imposingness it stands right next to the neighboring one in Kraljevica. Both castles are part of the largest interpretation project in Croatia, the cultural route Paths of the Frankopan financed from EU funds. Covering the area of ​​Rijeka, Krk and Gorski kotar, this cultural route aims at as many as twenty facilities related to the Frankopans to permanently integrate the facilities into the cultural life of the wider community and the tourist offer. A number of others will join the visitor center, which opened in 2016 in the Nova Kraljevica castle, and an interpretation center is planned for the Bakar Castle on the topic of trade ties between the Frankopans and the Zrinskis. In the city of Bakar, which has no tourist but industrial past, they started proactively telling a new story, with the aim of changing the perception from negative to positive, ie to show their tourist story and perspective, in which they can and have something to show.last_img read more

first_imgThe Bengals put together one of the worst offensive showings in recent “Monday Night Football” history, limping to a 27-3 blowout loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh.Cincinnati’s only points of the game came on a 28-yard field goal by Randy Bullock on the final down of a four-play drive in the first quarter. It was that kind of night for quarterback Andy Dalton and a once-potent roster that has regressed each year since 2015. Poor offensive line play and untimely penalties were the root causes of the team’s struggles. Dalton went down a whopping eight times for a loss of 69 yards against a relentless Pittsburgh defense. The 0-4 Bengals were also flagged eight times for 60 yards, pinning the Bengals into even deeper holes.A few more stats to tag along: Cincinnati averaged 2.3 yards per passing attempt (lowest in the NFL this season), 3.8 yards per rushing attempt, and went 0-for-3 in its red zone trips.Somehow, though, the Bengals won the time-of-possession battle, edging the Steelers by 28 seconds. So maybe the evening wasn’t a complete loss. MORE: Bengals vs. Steelers final score: Steelers defense shuts down Bengals in winTo put into context just how bad Cincinnati was offensively, we have to do some digging into recent “Monday Night Football” history. Since 2000, just five out of 650 teams playing on Monday night recorded three or fewer points while averaging three or fewer yards-per-play. The Bengals, of course, tallied three points against the Steelers and averaged 2.7 yards per play.Cincinnati’s drive chart from the dismal performance is below.Drive ResultDrive LengthPunt7 plays, 33 yardsField goal4 plays, 5 yardsPunt3 plays, -1 yardPunt3 plays, -5 yardsFumble9 plays, 46 yardsEnd of half3 plays, 17 yardsPunt3 plays, -11 yardsPunt6 plays, 2 yardsInterception16 plays, 67 yardsDowns11 plays, 19 yardsThe Bengals had as many drives totalling negative yards (three) as they did eclipsing 20 yards (three). Even their three “lengthy” drives resulted in a punt, fumble and interception. Only two drives went longer than eight plays; those possessions were the final two of the game and resulted in an interception and turnover on downs.last_img read more

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | After a series of painful Champions League failures, Pep Guardiola is on a mission to seal his Manchester City legacy by finally getting his hands on the trophy again.City start their latest bid to win the club’s first European Cup with a trip to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Group C opener on Wednesday.The long flight to the Ukraine will give Guardiola plenty of time to ponder his curious streak of Champions League flops in recent years.Guardiola has conquered English football spectacularly after winning the last two Premier League titles, the first in record-breaking fashion and the second as part of an unprecedented domestic treble last season.Yet the Champions League has proved impossible for Guardiola to master since he arrived at the Etihad Stadium.In fact, Europe’s elite club competition has been a cruel mistress for Guardiola for most of the last decade, with a series of frustrating exits during his spells in charge of Barcelona, Bayern Munich and City.Guardiola first won the Champions League as a manager in 2009 with Barcelona.But he has failed to reach the semi-finals in any of his three seasons as City boss, extending his long wait to win the tournament for the third time — his second triumph coming with Barca in 2011.City’s best Champions League run was under Guardiola’s predecessor Manuel Pellegrini, who made the semi-finals in the last season before the Spaniard took over.And Guardiola’s inability to win the Champions League without Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi in his team is a black mark his critics use to question the 48-year-old’s right to be ranked as a managerial legend.While that assessment is harsh on the innovative and inspirational Guardiola, his European campaigns with City have undoubtedly been painful experiences that exposed the few flaws in his team.VAR was the scapegoat for last season’s dramatic quarter-final defeat against Tottenham, but the real reasons for City’s failure to progress were a subdued first leg performance in north London and a defensive meltdown in the second leg.The year before that Liverpool punished City’s oddly timid display quarter-final display at Anfield, while Monaco shockingly eliminated Guardiola’s side after an error-prone last 16 tie in his first season. – The clock is ticking-With five Champions League semi-final defeats on his CV — two with Barca and three with Bayern — Guardiola has become the competition’s nearly-man since 2011, when his Messi-inspired team delivered a masterclass in the Wembley final against Manchester United.That memorable evening stands as Guardiola’s last fond memory of the tournament and the clock is ticking on his hopes of winning it for the third time.There is the looming prospect of UEFA sanctions, with City potentially facing a Champions League ban from the ongoing investigation into their adherence to financial fair play regulations.Worryingly for Guardiola’s hopes of lifting the famous ‘cup with the big ears’ in Istanbul later this season, City have endured a rocky start to the new Premier League season.They are already five points behind leaders Liverpool after Saturday’s surprise 3-2 defeat at Norwich, a result that showed how badly City will miss injured centre-back Aymeric Laporte.At least City have what looks on paper a relatively undemanding group, with Atalanta and Dinamo Zagreb their other opponents.Guardiola remains adamant his players will steer City back to calmer waters even without Laporte.“If today you believe I have doubts in my team because we lost a game…They gave me all the prestige I have in England,” he said after the Norwich game.“In the first season it was ‘fraud Guardiola, Fraudiola’. OK, and how it was not possible to play this way because you have too many tackles.“It was these players who gave me the prestige I have all round the world about how good a manager I am.”last_img read more
