first_imgAmerican Electric Power reaffirms plans to cut coal generation, increase renewables FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Daily Energy Insider:American Electric Power (AEP) is planning to close coal plants and increase capital investments in renewables to balance its portfolio and reduce risk, AEP Chairman, President and CEO Nicholas Akins said at the Edison Electric Institute Financial Conference held this week in San Francisco.The company plans to invest $33 billion in capital from 2019 through 2023. AEP expects to invest about $16.6 billion in its transmission businesses and another $8.3 billion in its distribution businesses over the next five years.The planned investments involve $2.7 billion for new clean energy generation, which include $2.2 billion for competitive, contracted renewable projects. In regard to contracted renewables, the company focuses on opportunities that are longer tenure, credit-worthy counterparties and mostly electric utilities, Akins said during a presentation to investors.The company plans to invest $1 billion in regulated fossil fuel and hydro generation and $500 million in nuclear generation through 2023. The company is moving from approximately 65 percent coal to 38-40 percent coal. Akins noted that the company’s portfolio will likely continue to include some coal into the future.“That’s really a focus of the de-risking that’s occurred relative primarily to fossil generation and moving toward a more balanced portfolio with the advent of not only natural gas but renewables, energy storage, other technologies that we’re primed to be able to take advantage of,” Akins said.More: AEP aims to reduce risk by increasing renewable investments, closing coal plantslast_img read more

(AP Photo/Billy Hurst)ExpandST. LOUIS — When David Freese stepped into the batter’s box at Busch Stadium in the first inning Thursday night, it was a reminder of glory days for the Cardinals fans.The MVP of the Cardinals’ 2011 World Series victory has been back to St. Louis often since leaving four years ago. But the fans still gave him an ovation long and loud enough for him to step out of the batter’s box.“It’s humbling. It’s borderline embarrassing. But it’s cool,” Freese said later after extending Cardinals starter Austin Gomber for 14 pitches, then finally lashing a two-run triple down the left-field line to start the Dodgers on their way to a 9-7 victory over the Cardinals.The win allowed the Dodgers to hold their position 1-1/2 games back in the National League West (the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon) and move within one game of the Cardinals for the NL’s second wild-card spot. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Four of the first five Dodgers reached base against Gomber. Freese’s triple was followed by an RBI single by Matt Kemp.Back-to-back doubles by Justin Turner and Manny Machado produced another run in the third inning and the Dodgers drove Gomber from the game with a four-run fourth inning. The first four Dodgers had hits in the fourth, including a show-bunt, pull-back RBI single by Clayton Kershaw and an RBI double by Chris Taylor. Turner and Machado went back-to-back on sacrifice flies that time around.Machado made it a three-hit, three-RBI night with a solo home run later in the game (his 34th of the season, 10 in 50 games with the Dodgers).“We have a lineup that can kind of grind starters and get a big hit and use the whole field,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “When we’re doing that, we’re as good as anybody. When we’re going out of the strike zone, we’re not.”All that offense should have made for an easy night with Kershaw on the mound. It did not.The left-hander was not at his best. He allowed 11 baserunners in six innings – eight hits (including a home run to Cardinals reliever Tyson Ross), two walks and an error by Freese at first base. The hit total was the most allowed by Kershaw in 18 starts dating to April 20 against the Washington Nationals when he gave up a season-high nine hits.“I thought it was a grind for him,” Roberts said. “I thought he was good, not great.”The Cardinals closed the gap with a three-run fifth inning then appeared poised to make it even less comfortable for the Dodgers in the seventh inning when Kenta Maeda came in.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start center_img Freese’s at-bat might have been a reminder of the kind of grinding approach that was so effective for the Dodgers a year ago but has been sporadically evident this year.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Subscribe here.“We just talked it out,” said Freese, who offered some input on the Cardinals’ rookie starter during the Dodgers’ pre-game meeting. “He’s got good stuff. We just had to stay with the approach and the plan, get good pitches and put the barrel on it.“We took good swings, man. We didn’t take launch swings. We took swings to kind of move the train and keep it going. It was a good night.”It was that.During the Cardinals’ three-game sweep at Dodger Stadium from Aug. 20-22, the Dodgers batted just .186 and scored a total of six runs. They exceeded that total in the first four innings of this rematch and led 8-1 on their way to a 16-hit night. Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Maeda gave up three consecutive hits but only one run thanks to Taylor. The left fielder ran down Jedd Gyorko’s single and threw Paul DeJong out trying to go from first to third on the hit.The Cardinals loaded the bases on two walks and a broken-bat single in the ninth against Kenley Jansen who took two of the losses during the series in L.A. Two runs scored on a forceout and a throwing error by Machado before Jansen closed it out.“It got a little nerve-wracking there,” Roberts acknowledged.Shut down for stretches as he has dealt with a heart problem, Jansen has struggled with his delivery, leading to poor command and a lack of movement on his cut fastball. The closer acknowledged it has been a frustrating year.“I ain’t going to complain about that. No excuses,” he said. “It’s definitely hard. But you’ve got to continue to go. Let this motivate you.“I didn’t feel sorry for myself the whole year.  This is what makes you great, when you go through a rough patch like this. … Stay humble and compete.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
