Report projects British renewable generation topping fossil fuels by 2020

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Clean Technica:Renewable electricity is on track to overtake fossil fuels to become the dominant source of electricity generation in Britain by 2020 according to a new report from British power analysts EnAppSys.EnAppSys published its annual market review and forecast earlier this month in which it outlined power figures from Great Britain’s electricity sector for 2018 (where Great Britain differs from the United Kingdom in excluding Ireland). Coal and gas-fired power stations produced a total of 130.9 terawatt-hours (TWh) while renewable energy sources generated 95.9 TWh in 2018.The renewable energy sector in Britain also saw levels of generation increase by 12.7 TWh (15.2%) in 2018, subsequently impacting levels of conventional power generation fell by 6.7% from 140.3 TWh in 2017.The headline finding from EnAppSys’ 2018 Market Review, however, was the future of the battle between fossil fuel generation and renewable energy sources. Specifically, with any further additions to the renewable energy sector set to reduce levels of fossil fuel generation, EnAppSys predicts that renewable energy generation will reach 121.3 TWh by 2020, while fossil fuel generation will fall to 105.6 TWh by the same time.This will be the first time that renewable energy has beaten out any other aggregated power source and will serve as a dramatic example of renewable energy’s staying power. “It’s clear that renewables will be generating most of our power in the years ahead, with wind playing the leading role,” said Luke Clark, RenewableUK’s Head of External Affairs, speaking to me via email.More: Renewables in Britain to overtake fossil fuels by 2020 Report projects British renewable generation topping fossil fuels by 2020last_img read more

Rugby Cranes off to Zimbabwe

first_imgRugby Cranes have this morning set off for Harare where they will face off with the Zimbabwe Sables in the Rugby Afrique Tier 1A.The Cranes honestly are counting their chances; Zimbabwe was humiliated by Kenya 61-15 while we lost to Namibia at home 40-31 in an epic encounter.Namibia last weekend embarrassed a resurgent Kenya with a 56-21 scoreline, much to the regret of the Cranes as we literally threw away our game against the African champions.On the back of that performance, the Cranes are in a buoyant mood to upstage the Sables on home soil; reason being, it is the one honest chance they have of staying in the elite Tier 1A. It is unlikely we shall beat Kenya at home next weekend.

Shreyas Iyer: I have ‘sealed’ number 4 spot in Indian batting order

first_imgShreyas IyerAdvertisement zijNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs6a00hWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ecm( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 7eqvWould you ever consider trying this?😱7sjCan your students do this? 🌚yu2ieRoller skating! Powered by Firework Although India have a strong batting and bowling options, they have always struggled for the number 4 position. They have tried several batsmen like Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey and a few on that particular position but no one has really impressed apart from Shreyas Iyer who has done fairly well. Advertisement Shreyas IyerHe is confident that his consistent performances in the past one year will help him to cement his place in the most-debated number four position in white-ball cricket. Having tried many, India recalled the Mumbai batsman in the West Indies series after their semifinal loss to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup.He justified his place in the West Indies series which earned him a place in their New Zealand tour earlier this year as well. Once again he showed his calibre and ended up being the highest run-getter with a hundred and two fifties in India’s 0-3 series whitewash. He amassed 217 runs – the most by an Indian in that place in a three-match bilateral series.Advertisement “If you have been playing for India at that position for a year now that means you have sealed it. There should be no more questions asked about it,” Shreyas Iyer said in an Instagram live session hosted by his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals. “When the debate was going on about No 4, performing at No 4 and completely sealing the position was really satisfying.”“But when you are playing for India, you need to be very much flexible at any position or whatever the team requires. I feel I can bat any position depending on the situation,” he again said.The young lad of Mumbai failed to make to the cut in the ICC Cricket World Cup squad. However, he was included in the Caribbean tour where his swashbuckling form left everyone amazed, including the captain Virat Kohli who later complimented Iyer saying he was “exactly the same” in his younger days.“It’s really a phenomenal feeling when he talks or compliments his teammates… He’s a role model for all the youngsters out there,” Iyer shared. “Whenever he goes out on the field it feels as if he’s playing his first game. He’s never tired, always energetic like a lion. You see a different body language when he enters the ground, something great to learn from him.”Not only this, he has impressed as a leader also while captaining Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League. He made his debut season in 2015 where he scored a whopping 439 runs while playing with a fractured index finger. He got the captaincy in the mid-way of the 2018 season from the veteran Gautam Gambhir and he led Delhi Capitals to their first playoffs in seven years in 2019 season as well.Keeping his free-flowing batting ability in mind, it wouldn’t be wrong saying that Shreyas Iyer can be a good choice for that place.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comALSO READ:Harbhajan Singh to begin his second innings with acting, shares movie posterRobin Uthappa reveals cricket was the only thing that probably kept him from ‘jumping off the balcony’ Advertisementlast_img read more

Coming Back ‘Better than Ever’ in Sea Bright

first_imgBy Michele J. Kuhn Brian George is bullish on Sea Bright.“We’ll be back and we’ll be better than ever,” he said.Brian George in front of the former location of his store Northshore Menswear in Sea Bright.George, the longtime owner of Northshore Mens­wear, saw almost the entire inventory of upscale clothing swept out of the building at 1080 Ocean Ave. when both the Shrewsbury River and the Atlantic Ocean smashed into the store with Super Storm Sandy.He is in the midst of making plans to reopen his store in Sea Bright early next year and will be located for the next three months at 45 West River Road, Rumson, in the same space he occupied 30 years ago when he first opened his haberdashery.“Temporarily, we’ll be bringing the store to this office building,” he said of the Rumson pop-up shop.The short-term location will be open seven days a week with the same hours as the Sea Bright store: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Tuesday and Friday-Saturday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.Then, sometime around March 1, George expects to move into a new Sea Bright location at 1127 Ocean Ave., in a building he is referring to as “Big Yellow.” The three-story building will be the new permanent home of Northshore Menswear with one big difference. The service and quality will be the same but George will be adding women’s wear to the clothing store.After seeing the destruction that the storm brought Sea Bright, why is George intent on returning to the borough?“First of all,” he said, “I have a love affair with the town. The people are genuine. It’s unique. When I was a kid growing up in Sayreville, we used to go to the public beach (in Sea Bright). My parents used to drive us through Rumson … I’ve told people that when I was a kid, this is where I would go to the beach. Now I look at it every day.”The Sea Bright store is Northshore Menswear’s third location. The first is where George will return for three months and the second was in an older home he bought on East River Road in Rumson and where he stayed for 20 years.“I knew when I got (to Sea Bright), I was vulnerable with the river on the back and the ocean on the front. I had to buy insurance, I knew it and it’s not cheap but you have to do it,” he said.George, a Rumson resident, said it has taken a lot of work to arrange the temporary move to River Road. While the old building now sits eerily wide-open on the side, George has been gratified by the response he has gotten from others.“Our vendors have been phenomenal, very supportive … We had nothing left, not my computer. My cash register is at the police department. It was banged up. All of our inventory was washed out of the building. We are starting from scratch; it’s like when we started 30 years ago.“All of my customer lists are gone but people are calling me from all over the country, expressing their support, telling me that when we reopen, they will be there and asking us if we need any help. I think that’s really great,” George said.George, who is an officer in the town’s business association, had prepared for the storm. Inventory was placed 4 feet above the floor level, merchandise was pushed to the back of the building, the windows were boarded up and the doors were sandbagged. “We never, ever realized that there would be a 12-foot surge from the river that would plow into the side of our building, taking the merchandise out when it receded,” he said.“We’ve gotten calls from people … a good mile and a half from the store who had clothing of mine, fixtures of mine in their backyard. My pool table, my collection of 70 college football helmets … that are washing up in people’s yards,” he said.The old building is condemned and will be demolished shortly.The new building “is on a high point” he said. “I always liked the building. It has a lot of character.”George said he feels for those who lost their homes in the storm.“I lost basically some memorabilia I’ve collected over 30 years that’s dear to me and the inventory but, technically, it’s just stuff. It’s not my home,” he said. “We are insured at the store and so we’ll be able to bounce back. We weren’t touched at all at home.”George said his business is like his “fourth child. It’s who I am … I’m a merchant. It’s what I’ve always wanted to do since I was a kid.”He has affixed a wooden sign to the front of his former Ocean Avenue store that says: “ We believe in Sea Bright!… We’ll be back!”“I really believe that,” he said. “Sea Bright is unique and I want to commit to that.”last_img read more

Brightcove Brings Condé Nast Digital to Boxee

first_imgThis Labor Day Boxee users will celebrate an increase in their mainstream web video content. Boxee just announced a partnership with video platform company Brightcove. The deal will potentially usher major players like CBS, Sony Music and Discovery onto Boxee’s web television entertainment platform. The first publishers to take advantage of the new arrangement include Condé Nast Digital (publishers of Wired and Epicurious) and children’s programming site Qubo. Said Boxee CEO Avner Ronen, “Boxee’s partnership with Brightcove represents an important step as we bring well-known, established content owners onto our platform. The Brightcove platform also gives us a go-to provider for our content partners who are looking for robust content delivery options.” Related Posts Tags:#Digital Lifestyle#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… With today’s Brightcove partnership, Boxee can point major networks towards a solution that allows them to increase control over their web video content and advertising. Brightcove offers customers the option to automatically serve video ads or they can choose to utilize a turnkey solution for customized ad placement. Meanwhile Boxee offers content owners a chance to move web video to television audiences. If Brightcove clients like Fox, Showtime Networks and A&E Entertainment welcome Boxee integration, other providers can’t help but take notice. This is important given Boxee’s battle for Hulu integration. While Boxee users have always loved the Hulu app, Hulu’s content partners requested removal from the Boxee community in early February. Boxee was forced to respond with a workaround solution. The new deal further legitimizes Boxee as a distributor of mainstream content.

This Is How Don Draper Would Have Searched The Web

The best part – it actually works! An IBM 362 is a little bit before my time, but the look and feel of the on-screen interface is reminiscent of the type-and-punch machines and system monitors I remember. Landsteiner’s design may take some liberties with the punch-carding operation, and the amount of time it would actually take a ‘362 to search the entire Google database.Still, playing around with the buttons and dials affords a glimpse back into the distant past when things like cathode-ray monitors were just a glint in a young engineer’s eye. If you’re not interested in seeing how your grandparents would have surfed the Web if such a construct had been around, you can journey 20 years further into the future and take a gander at the Google BBS Terminal, a text-only screen interface that reminds me of the heady days when tools like Gopher and Archie were as prominent as this new thing called the World Wide Web.

Internet of Things (IoT) to Become More Deeply Embedded in 2019

first_imgAnurag Mehta has enhanced his career as a Digital Marketing Expert at Rigel Networks which is an IT Service Provider company with multiple presences across the globe. He has an excellent marketing skill and a strategic mind. Anurag Mehta plays a pivotal role in supporting expansion and growth of the company’s services and products. This year the Internet of Things (IoT) solution will profoundly get secured in our everyday lives at home as well as work. The term IoT itself used less frequently due to it’s moving out of the hype phase and quickly becoming an essential part of our life. The invention of this technology will change our style of living and work as it can get connected with any devices that we own. The Internet of Things (IoT) will become deeply embedded in 2019.For instance, IoT connects now, and will continue to connect all watches, cars, doors, and more can go online and communicate with each other. When it comes to organizations, tools and machinery are more intelligent and connected, generating data that drives efficiency, enabling new paradigms such as predictive maintenance to become a reality, rather than a pipe-dream.According to the market research analyst, there will be 26 billion connected devices across the globe by the end of 2019. Let us have a look at the prognostications as to how likely it will play out over the next coming months. As we frequently become used to the fact that the internet is not just something we connect to computers and smartphones, it is virtually anything that we can imagine.Devices become more modulated.The world has gone much advanced when it comes to technology. From smartphones to smart home devices like Alexa hub, or Siri, we are getting used to using the voices to control these devices. However, 2019 will be the year that the rest of our possessions find their voice. Practically speaking, every car manufacturer is working towards virtual assistants for conveniently operating vehicles while behind the wheel and assisting driver’s safety. Moreover, voice control will increasingly become an option for industrial and enterprise technology.In many ways, voice control makes sense as it is easy to operate requiring no manual input — and our eyes need not be open to watch for jeopardies. It also represents further removal of the communication restrictions between individuals and devices. Before user interfaces, graphical environments, and dashboards commenced came into existence, and we entirely relied on programming them with computer code — lessening the obstacles to entry. However, voice recognition and generation is the next logical step towards the making of technology that anyone can use to work more efficiently or enhance their lives.IoT development and deployment will frequently drive by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Artificial intelligence (AI) and IoT are almost allied areas of technology. As the technology internet of things generates an enormous amount of data, it proves to be useful and compelling to every organization as well as in human’s life. For instance, an industrial network having several devices talking to each other analyses mounds of data created is beyond the powers of humans.The primary task of AI within the Internet of Things environment is that the training machine learning algorithms to detect outliers in the data. This detection will indicate opportunities for efficiency or provide early warning of an imminent problem. Moreover, the networks of IoT grows in size and complexity, making them more self-reliant on new developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Further, through automated threat detection systems, AI plays a vital role in keeping IoT systems secure.Industries implementing IoT Deployments in 2019.The technology – Internet of Things not only plays a vital role in human life but also offers considerable benefits to businesses. For instance,  emitting information about products on display from mannequins that communicates with customers’ smartphones in retail environments.According to the research study by Forrester, in 2019, businesses will lead the surge in IoT adoption with 85% of organizations implementing or planning IoT deployments this year.Manufacturing industries proves to be a clear leader when it comes to the Internet of Things deployment. Looking into the research study, businesses throughout 2019 will flourish the value in connected machinery capable of communicating every detail of its operating parameters and efficiency to other smart, connected devices. Whether or not these solutions are useful, it will start to trickle down to smaller organized bodies, who are confident that their investments will pay off. Edge Computing.Algorithms that bounded at the ‘edges’ of a network refers to edge computing customarily at the point where the system touches the real world, like inside sensors and cameras. Given the fact, a considerable amount of data collected by these devices will be counterproductiveA good illustration 0f edge computing is the security camera. It transfers terabytes of video data to the cloud or a central server. However, the only data of any interest will be the few megabytes showing arousing suspicion or illicit activities.With devices being capable of carrying out their computation and not just dumbing down the information on to the processed in the cloud, networks then become less clogged with traffic. As a result, there is more computing power available for critical tasks. 5G Networks.The technology internet of things is reliant on speed and availability of data services. 2019 will see the switching-on of first consumer-ready 5G networks, that could operate to 20 times faster than current systems of mobile data. Talking about smart connected technology, some locations are effectively obscure in this period. Moreover, the scope of IoT projects can broaden dramatically with faster and stable mobile networks connected to homes and offices. Ideas such as the smart city, where civic amenities are networked, and data are analyzed to create cleaner, more efficient urban living environments become more viable. The technology used by self-driving, autonomous cars, and public transport vehicles will also greatly benefit from the increased bandwidth available.
