BOEING DELIVERS REVERSIBLE FUEL CELL-BASED ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEM TO U.S. NAVY
Monday, February 8, 2016

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. - After 16 months of development, Boeing has delivered a fuel cell energy storage system to the U.S. Navy for testing. The cell is being tested to determine its ability to support the energy needs of military and commercial customers.

The system is the first of its kind using a technology called a "reversible solid oxide fuel cell" to store energy from renewable resources (including wind and solar), producing clean, zero-emissions electricity.

The system generates, compresses and stores hydrogen. When the grid demands power, it operates as a fuel cell, consuming the stored hydrogen to produce electricity. Boeing’s technology is unique in being able to both store energy and produce electricity in a single system, making the technology "reversible."

This first unit was commissioned on the Southern California Edison power grid at Boeing’s Huntington Beach, Calif., facility before being installed for further testing on the Navy’s ‘microgrid’ at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center in Port Hueneme, Calif.

Boeing’s fuel cell product was developed using the company’s experience with energy systems for unmanned undersea vehicles and can be adapted and customized for a variety of defense and commercial applications.

SCHMIDT HAMMER LASSEN AND GOTTLIEB PALUDAN ARCHITECTS PICKED FOR SHENZHEN WASTE-TO-ENERGY PLANT
Thursday, February 4, 2016

COPENHAGEN - The team of Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects and Gottlieb Paludan Architects has won an international competition to design the largest waste-to-energy plant in the world. Located on the mountainous outskirts of Shenzhen the new Shenzhen East Waste-to-Energy Plant will incinerate 5,000 tons of waste per day - equaling one third of the waste generated by Shenzhen's 20 million inhabitants every year. The plant will utilize the most advanced technology in waste incineration and power generation and, at the same time act as a source of education for the citizens of Shenzhen.

The winning design organizes the entire plant, including auxiliary buildings, into one circular building - breaking with the traditional rectangular layout of industrial facilities. By proposing a clear circular form, the footprint of the plant is minimized and it reduces the amount of excavation required to build on the site.

Public visitors are invited into the plant through a landscaped park, via an entrance bridge that rises between the stacks to an entrance lobby and visitor centre overlooking the plant machinery. An internal circular path and walkway circle the plant explaining each process, before leading up to a 1.5km panoramic public walkway on the roof overlooking the surrounding landscape and the city of Shenzhen.

The 66,000m2 roof is designed to be covered by up to 44,000m2 of photovoltaic panels providing the opportunity for the plant to not only provide a cleaner way to deal with the city’s waste but also contribute to the renewable energy provision for the city.

The plant is intended to showcase the Waste-to-Energy production as an important technical process that is geared to deal with the issues of growing waste, as well as the issue of finding more environmentally friendly ways of generating electricity. At the same time visitors become informed on the challenge of the growing amounts of waste we produce every day and are also educated on initiatives on how to reduce their own amount of daily waste.

Detailed design work is due to begin in early 2016, and the plant is scheduled to start operating in 2020.

GUELPH, Ontario, Canada - Canadian Solar Inc has begun commercial operation of three solar photovoltaic (PV) power plants in Japan, totaling approximately 6.2 MWp. The 6.2 MWp portfolio of projects include the 2.3 MWp Ashikita Solar Power Plant in Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture, the 2.2 MWp Minamishimabara Power Plant - East and the 1.7MWp Minamishimabara Plant - West in Minamishimabara City, Nagasaki Prefecture.

"The completion and commercial operation of the additional three solar projects, totaling 6.2MWp, brings our total megawatts of projects in operation in Japan to approximately 21MWp," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Financial Officer of Canadian Solar Inc., "We remain on track to execute on our plan to deliver more clean solar energy to the Japanese market."

The 2.3 MWp Ashikita Solar Power Plant, powered by 9,030 Canadian Solar CS6P-260P modules, achieved commercial operation on December 11, 2015. The electricity generated from this plant, approximately 2,858 MWh annually, will be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of ¥40.00 ($0.34) per kWh.

The 2.2 MWp Minamishimabara Power Plant - East, powered by 8,602 Canadian Solar CS6P-260P modules, achieved commercial operation on December 25, 2015. The electricity generated from the plant, approximately 2,750 MWh annually, will be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of ¥40.00 yen ($0.34) per kWh.

And finally, the 1.7 MWp Minamishimabara Plant - West, powered by 6,509 Canadian Solar CS6P-260P modules, achieved commercial operation on January 29, 2016. This plant is expected to generate approximately 2,073 MWh of clean, solar electricity annually to be purchased by Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. under a 20 year feed-in-tariff contract at the rate of ¥40.00 yen ($0.34) per kWh.
