FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Tech:Asset management firm Capital Dynamics has signed a deal with Nebraskan independent power producer Tenaska to develop nine battery energy storage system (BESS) projects located in California’s highest electrical load centres.The BESS projects will be designed to deliver power resources to manage high-demand conditions caused by heat waves, supply shortages and growing local power supply deficiencies in the Bay Area, Los Angeles and San Diego areas that cannot be reliably served solely by intermittent renewables, the companies said.Struck through Capital Dynamics’ Clean Energy Infrastructure business, the deal will see enable the provision of approximately 2GW of clean energy through the nine projects into the California Independent System Operator (CAISO) market.Benoit Allehaut, managing director of the Clean Energy Infrastructure team, said California is poised for “significant growth” in energy storage demand as a result of its “robust” clean energy goals. Indeed, the state announced plans in March to add 25GW of renewables by 2030. “We are excited to join with Tenaska to build high-quality battery energy storage facilities to help integrate renewables and reinforce CAISO grid reliability and resilience,” said Allehaut. “We hope to quickly contract resource adequacy with utilities and CCAs to grow this portfolio.”The move builds on other partnerships between Capital Dynamics and Tenaska. Last month, they agreed to develop 24 solar projects totaling 4.8GW, following on from a previous collaboration for 14 PV projects with approximately 2GW in the US Midwest.[Jules Scully]More: Capital Dynamics and Tenaska partner for 2GW of battery storage in California Capital Dynamics, Tenaska join forces to develop 2GW of battery storage in California
Head Coach of Sri Lanka Cricket is set to return home after boards’ statement. The ODI series between two sides will be followed by a T20 series.Sri Lanka has slipped in the ICC rankings and failed to secure automatic qualification for 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia. However, under him, Sri Lanka has slipped in the ICC rankings and failed to secure automatic qualification for 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia. They may be struggling in ODIS but Sri Lanka made history by becoming the first Asian team to win a Test series in South Africa.Sri Lanka did exceedingly well in the longest format of the game to upstage Proteas in their own den. However, in the limited overs setup, it has been one-way traffic with South Africa being on the driver’s seat.

Mike Bosch credits a groundhog for why there have been so many home runs hit to right field at SU Softball Stadium. The groundhog, which he calls the team’s mascot, lives beyond the right-field fence and occasionally scurries around the bleachers for food. Its mere presence attracts balls its way, said Bosch, Syracuse’s head coach.However, there are more logical ways to explain the jet stream that has helped send 29.6 percent of home runs hit this year over SU’s right-field fence. It’s not just that there are a handful of powerful left-handed hitters on the team. Seventy-seven percent of Syracuse’s home runs this year have come from right-handed bats. A dominant westerly wind, a southerly wind blocked by Tennity Ice Pavilion and air pockets created by surrounding areas have contributed to the right-field power alley. These factors will likely come into play again on Wednesday, when Syracuse (23-18, 8-9 Atlantic Coast) hosts Colgate (7-21, 3-5 Patriot) in a doubleheader. “There really is a big difference, whether it’s righty or lefty, in that general right-center, right-field way,” SU assistant coach Alisa Goler said. “If it gets up in the air and comes off the bat pretty hard, in my opinion, I usually assume it’s going to go out. That’s how big of a difference it is.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe right-field jet stream was evident most recently in last Wednesday’s doubleheader between SU and Canisius. The Orange smacked three home runs to right or right-center field. In game 2, Corinne Ozanne didn’t appear to get all of an outside pitch, but she sent it over the right-field fence anyway. A man in a Canisius jacket turned to his right and asked, “What is this, a home run derby?” Jon Nese, associate head of the undergraduate program in meteorology at Penn State University, examined Syracuse, New York, wind roses, or diagrams. He also looked at the SU Softball Stadium and surrounding area on Google Maps. He explained three reasons for why balls carry out to right field. First, the dominant wind in Syracuse is westerly, or coming from the west. SU Softball Stadium faces north-northeast, so the sun isn’t in the batter’s view. This means the wind blows across the field and out toward right field, which sits in the east. Most of the time, the outfield flags in left field indicate the wind is blowing in, toward home plate. Nese said while the flags are not wrong, the dominant wind in Syracuse is still westerly. Second, Nese said southerly winds are blocked by Tennity Ice Pavilion, which looms right behind the first base dugout. Nese said the pavilion is just high enough to block southerly winds that would blow from the South and push balls toward left field. “I strongly believe that ice pavilion plays a major role in lessening the impact of a south wind blowing balls out to left field,” Nese said. “I would not put too much stock in what those flags are showing.”The third reason for the right-field jet stream lies in what surrounds the stadium. In addition to the trees, there is a parking lot behind the left field fence. On a sunny day, the impact of the sun on the asphalt in the parking creates small-scale effects that influence the flags, Nese said. The air over the parking lot rises because it tends to get warmer than air over, say, nearby dirt. To fill the void over the parking lot, air from surrounding areas — SU Softball Stadium — tends to move toward the lot. This creates small-scale air movements that could impact the flight of balls, Nese said. “Small scale variations in the wind are very much related to the surface covering, whatever is covering the surface,” Nese said. “For example, an asphalt parking lot will tend to absorb sunlight better than nearby dirt.”Goler first noticed the jet stream last fall because the team’s lefties, excluding Sydney O’Hara, are not power hitters. Yet when they would pull the ball, it would get out in a hurry. The jet stream has existed since at least 2009, Jenna Caira’s freshman year at Syracuse. Caira, SU’s all-time leader in wins, strikeouts and earned run average, said while most home runs to the left side of the field would barely clear the fence, right field was a different story.“It just carried for days,” Caira said. “It’s probably still going. That’s how hard it would go out and carry.” Syracuse has become a power-hitting team — the Orange is 44th in Division I in home runs per game with .95. But even on balls that stay inside the park, the jet stream can turn what would otherwise be routine fly balls into extra-base hits. SU assistant coach Kristyn Sandberg acknowledged this fact and said she and Goler teach their hitters how to make the most of the stream. They teach right-handed hitters to work the right-center gap and lefties to pull the ball with runners on. “It’s a nice home field advantage,” Goler said, “but you just got to hope nobody else hits it in the air over there.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 18, 2016 at 9:31 pm Contact Matthew: firstname.lastname@example.org | @MatthewGut21
Santi Cazorla 1 Arsene Wenger has conceded Santi Cazorla could be out until March after suffering knee ligament damage in last weekend’s draw at Norwich.The Spain international played on at Carrow Road despite taking a heavy knock in the early stages of the second half as Arsenal’s injury woes continued.Laurent Koscielny had already been forced off with an early hip problem and Alexis Sanchez then pulled up with a hamstring injury.Those two players were substituted but Cazorla played on – with Wenger now admitting he may be without the influential midfielder for up to four months.“It is possible,” Wenger said when asked about reports the 30-year-old being sidelined until March.“Ideally you want them all to be with you but we are prepared to deal with it. It is a big miss with players like that but it is a opportunity for players to come in and fill in and show they have the quality and that they are fresh and that can give a good impact to the team.“The players injured in the last two weeks will not play tomorrow and who is back maybe in the squad could be Laurent Koscielny, and Theo Walcott will be a decision tomorrow morning.”Sanchez will be seen as a key loss to Wenger’s ambitions as the Premier League enters a busy festive period and the Gunners face a must-win Champions League tie in Olympiacos on Wednesday.Wenger highlighted Sanchez being pushed into the Carrow Road camera pit by Norwich’s defender Ryan Bennett as a potential reason for his own injury.The Frenchman refused to put a time-frame on the hamstring issue but again defended his decision to play the Chile international at Norwich after a long run of games for club and country.“I don’t know, honestly,” he said of Sanchez’s possible return.“Alexis is a hamstring but I don’t know how long it will take, it is usually a quick one to recover while Cazorla we don’t know until he sees a specialist.“Alexis had four weeks holiday, he was rested in some games and had all the medical signs to say he was okay to play between Dinamo Zagreb and Norwich.“Nobody suggested that he could displace his back or his hamstring. When he was pushed into the boards on the side of the field that did not shock anybody. That injury can come from that as well.“I’m not expert enough to know but if you want to blame me I’m okay with it.”While Koscielny may be fit in time to face Sunderland on Saturday, with Walcott also likely to return to the squad, Wenger is still without a number of key figures as the likes of Francis Coquelin, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Mikel Arteta remain out.
