Clean Energy Group Warns California Car Ban Will Tax the Grid

One clean energy trade group in California is warning that California’s bold new goal of phasing out gas-powered cars within 15 years will drive up power demand from electric cars by 25% — a potential problem for a state that has been struggling to keep the lights on.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the California Solar and Storage Association thinks it has the solution: solar and battery installations to shore up any power shortfalls that emerge from the onslaught of EVs, particularly rooftop solar arrays paired with home batteries.

“Such an increase in demand on the state’s already stressed electric grid adds urgency and importance to making the state’s energy supplies safer, more affordable, and more reliable,” the group’s executive director, Bernadette Del Chiaro, said in a press release.

With record-breaking heat triggering California’s first rolling blackouts in 20 years last month, the

India Ratings maintains negative outlook on transport, energy infra for second half of FY21

New Delhi, Sep 25 (PTI) India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) on Friday said it has maintained a negative outlook on transport and energy infrastructure for second half of the current financial year.

It said the negative outlook stems from likely low demand in the sectors.

‘India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) has maintained a negative outlook on energy and transport infrastructure for 2HFY21, stemming from a likely low demand, driven by low thermal plant load factor and subdued wind generations, and the resultant impact on coverage metrics,’ the ragting agency said in a statement.

The agency has also maintained a negative outlook on the roads and airport sectors.

It said toll collections rebound was strong at around 90 per cent of pre-COVID-19 levels in the first 15 days of September 2020, exceeding Ind-Ra’s April 2020 expectations.

‘Nevertheless, possible regional lockdowns, a surge in COVID-19 infections, travel restrictions, people behavioural changes and

FAU Lands $11 Million From U.S. Office of Naval Research For Oceanic Bioluminescence

BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — From the ocean surface to the deep seafloor, bioluminescent creatures are found throughout marine habitats. This “glowing” energy released from chemical reactions emitted by these organisms is used to warn or evade predators, lure or detect prey and communicate with members of the same species. Research surrounding bioluminescence will soon serve as an important tool to protect the coastlines of the United States.

Florida Atlantic University‘s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute has landed an $11,179,001 four-year contract from the United States Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop a next-generation, high-intake, compact, defined excitation bathyphotometer sensor for natural oceanic bioluminescence assessments. The contract will also involve imaging, modeling, and significant field work to better understand bioluminescence dynamics in the ocean. Bathyphotometer measurements of bioluminescence are used to study light emissions from populations of luminescent marine organisms including phytoplankton and zooplankton.
