Second Big Storage Project Opens in Australia

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Clean Technica:Last year, French energy company Neoen partnered with Tesla to bring the first large battery storage facility to Australia, the Hornsdale facility in South Australia. Now, it is moving forward with two more projects that involve Tesla Powerpack batteries, one in Gannawarra and another at the Bulgana Green Power Hub, both located in Victoria.The Bulgana facility will support a 194 MW wind farm. “Today marks the commencement of construction of one of the world’s most innovative renewable energy projects,” Neoen Australia boss Franck Woitiez tells RenewEconomy. “It is delivering dispatchable, sustainable and competitive energy to Nectar Farms and Victorian consumers. It shows that energy transition is (happening) now. Coal is a thing of the past.”The Bulgana installation proves how renewable energy can have a positive effect on a local economy. Nectar Farms is Australia’s largest indoor vegetable grower but it was ready to quit the country and move its operations overseas, taking hundreds of jobs with it. But now with the promise of 100% renewable energy available to power its growing activities, it has decided to stay and expand in the area.“This project will make the advanced agriculture facility the world’s first ever crop farm to be completely powered by renewable energy,” says Victoria’s energy minister Lucy D’Ambrosio. “This is an exciting next step in delivering affordable, sustainable and clean energy — creating jobs right across Victoria. We’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and the Bulgana Green Power Hub is helping us meet our ambitious renewable energy targets.”The project was made possible when the state of Victoria stepped up and signed a 15-year power purchase agreement that will allow the excess electricity created by the Bulgana facility to be distributed to Victoria residents via the local utility grid.More: Renewable Power Advances In Australia And Germany Second Big Storage Project Opens in Australialast_img read more

New research says players at risk of coronavirus spread to lungs

first_imgResearch from Germany and Italy suggests that footballers and other athletes face a particular risk of the coronavirus infecting their lungs, raising major questions over attempts to restart professional soccer.The research, produced by Italian immunologists and lung specialists based at institutes in Berlin, Rome and Verona, suggests that due to strenuous exercise, elite athletes are more likely to inhale virus particles and direct them to the lower areas of the lung.COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, can cause lung damage and complications such as pneumonia and, in severe cases, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The preprint paper, which has yet to be peer-reviewed, also suggests that athletes who are asymptomatic could make their condition worse by infecting their lungs during strenuous exertion.Soccer has ground to a halt in all major leagues in Europe and none have yet to resume. European soccer’s governing body UEFA has set a May 25 deadline for leagues to outline their plans to re-start.Leagues, governing bodies and clubs, however, have said they will only return when play is safe and that they will take medical advice.In their paper: “The First, Comprehensive Immunological Model of COVID-19”, Paolo Matricardi, Roberto Dal Negro and Roberto Nisini raise questions over the safety of playing while the virus remains at large. “The pattern of breathing during strenuous exercise changes dramatically by a tremendous increase of ventilation [i.e.: inspiratory and expiratory volumes of air], and of alveolar ventilation in particular,” the authors state.”Professional athletes [are] particularly exposed [much more than individuals of common population] due to their frequent practice of extreme and long-lasting exercise.”The researchers state that the “ideal lungs” of athletes, while helpful in normal conditions, significantly favor the deep inhalation of infectious agents.”Even the SARS-CoV-2 can then spread more easily to the deepest areas of the lungs during strenuous exercise, and there start its aggressive action,” they said.Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the name given to the 2019 novel coronavirus. COVID-19 is the name given to the disease associated with the virus.”Not by chance, a great proportion of professional football players claimed the occurrence of fever, dry cough and malaise (and dyspnea in some cases) immediately after, or a few hours following their last official match,” note the authors.Asymptomatic athletes Adding to the dangers, the research says that players who have the virus but do not show symptoms, could make their condition worse by allowing the virus to move from their upper to lower airways.Asymptomatic but infected athletes could exhale or eliminate aerosolized particles that may contain viruses which are then re-inhaled.”These droplets or aerosol might be re-inhaled and facilitate the spread of the virus from the upper to the lower airways,” the paper states.The authors also look at the risk of the virus being transmitted during a game.”In sports where many athletes are in close contact, such as team sports or marathons, the same particles have high chances to be inhaled by other athletes, facilitating viral transmission.”To emphasize that strenuous exercise induces a much more frequent spitting of secretions and this can further contribute to the environmental SARS-CoV-2 spreading, particularly if the distancing recommendations are not strictly followed.”A separate new study from Aarhus University, in Denmark, looking at how much exposure players would have to a single infected player on the field, showed that, on average, a player is positioned within an ‘exposure zone’ for one minute and 28 seconds during a match.On Tuesday, the World Players Association, which represents some 85,000 athletes from different sports in over 60 countries, said competitors should not be rushed back to action.“At the moment there is a lot of pressure from the leagues on all continents to resume,” WPA Executive Director Brendan Schwab told Reuters in an interview.“The players can only agree to that [return] if they know that their interests will be protected. “Soccer’s global players’ union FIFPro has also urged caution. “We need guidance and protocols on how to return in a healthy and safe manner. Football is a contact sport and we feel very high protection standards are required,” said FIFPro secretary general Jonas Baer-Hoffmann.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Chelsea boss urges Hudson-Odoi to ignore social media attacks

first_img The teenage winger was slammed on social media for his ineffective performance in last week’s shock home defeat to Southampton. Lampard fears that impatient fans are expecting too much of a player who has started only three Premier League games all season. He said: “Unfortunately, that sort of thing is now par for the course. “I haven’t seen what’s been said and I haven’t spoken to Callum about it but it’s something you need to have a very thick skin about. “He’s 19 years old and it’s a lot to tell someone who has been out of the team for a long time, ‘You must produce instantly or you’ll have social media giving it to you’. “We have to be level-headed and I will certainly try to protect him against that.” Lampard knows supporters’ expectations have been raised by Hudson-Odoi signing a £180,000-a-week, five-year contract after Chelsea rejected a £35million bid from Bayern Munich in the summer. Loading… Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard, admits Callum Hudson-Odoi is struggling for confidence. Lamps said: “Callum is a young player who has had a lot of talk about him for different reasons, which is not all of his doing. “There has been a big microscope on him and we have to show him some patience. “He has signed a really long contract and has declared he wants to be at Chelsea, so it’s up to him to put all that other stuff to bed. “I have got no problems with him and will certainly stick with him — but now he has to produce. “He understands what he needs to do. He needs to be consistent in how he works, how he trains and how much pressure he puts on me to get him into the team.

Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce issues rallying call ahead of festive fixtures

first_img While Jose Mourinho’s departure has dominated the build-up to the game Allardyce’s chief concern is rescuing his side from the relegation zone after two consecutive defeats stopped the Black Cats’ revival in its tracks. And Allardyce believes the way his players respond to the mighty challenge of playing six games in 24 days over Christmas and the New Year will go a long way of shaping their destiny for the rest of their campaign. Press Association Sam Allardyce has ordered his Sunderland players to stand up and be counted during the frantic festive period as he looks to increase to the turmoil facing Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. center_img Allardyce said: “We’re in a position where we’ve got a few players who have not experienced Christmas before – the hurly-burly and the constant pressure that you come under for a short period of time, when everyone else is relaxing and you’re full-on twenty-four-seven. “You’ve got to look into the players’ eyes and see whether the lads can handle it or not, particularly the lads who have only played in the Premier League for one season. Changing the side will be a necessity based on the physical and mental fatigue the players are going to go through. “They have put themselves back under enormous pressure by not picking up at least a point against Watford. We were looking pretty comfortable a few weeks ago and in the space of two games both Newcastle and Bournemouth have made it very difficult. “We’ve slipped back into the bottom two and we have put enormous pressure on ourselves over the Christmas period to try and get out of there.” Clearly the feeling on Wearside is that last Saturday’s home capitulation to Watford could cost the Black Cats dear, particularly because Manchester City and Liverpool are the next opponents after the managerless west Londoners. But while Mourinho’s sudden exit will change the psychology ahead of Saturday’s game, Allardyce believes his side can take great heart from the way other so-called unfancied sides have fared against the big clubs this season. Allardyce, who described Chelsea’s demise this season as “staggering”, added: “The encouraging thing is that Bournemouth have just beaten Manchester United and Chelsea and Newcastle have just beaten Liverpool and Tottenham, so on that basis if you play our very best on the day you can get a result in the Premier League.” Allardyce is still without Lee Cattermole and Sebastian Larsson for the trip to Stamford Bridge while defender Sebastian Coates might also be missing after sitting out training on Thursday due to illness. last_img read more
