First Solar set for 1 GW of installations in 2013

first_imgFirst Solar set for 1 GW of installations in 2013Downstream figures from IHS Solar, released on Monday, reveal that thin film giant First Solar is set to install around 1.1 GW of solar installations this year. August 12, 2013 Jonathan Gifford Installations Markets Markets & Policy Share In a further indication that its transition from module manufacturer to project developer — using its own modules — has been a success, First Solar is continuing to expand its project pipeline in the U.S. and beyond. According to IHS Solar figures, First Solar has approximately doubled its annual installed capacity figures for 2013, from 516 MW in 2012. In a statement released on Monday, this growth of First Solar as an EPC shows that it is “living up to its name,” writes IHS Solar, and will be the biggest EPC for 2013. “First Solar’s successful strategy of acquiring, installing and divesting projects will keep the company among the world’s leading solar system integrators over the next years,” said Josefin Berg, senior analyst for downstream solar research at IHS Solar. First Solar has also been moving into emerging solar markets and IHS Solar notes its acquisition in January of Solar Chile, which delivered it a 1.5 GW pipeline in the South American country. Surpassing the U.S. based First Solar in terms of growth for 2013 is Chinese EPC China Power Investment. The IHS figures predict that the company will increase its annual installed capacity from 320 MW in 2012 to 700 MW in 2013 – representing 119% annual growth. China’s GD Solar rounds out the top three EPCs in the IHS 2013 forecast ranking, developing 500 MW of projects, up from 220 MW in 2012. IHS Solar notes that Golden Sun initiative coupled with a political desire to offset declining module exports to Europe are behind the rapid growth of the “locally entrenched system integrators” in China. The analysts predict that 6.8 GW of photovoltaic generating capacity will be added in the non-residential sector in China in 6.8 GW. Six Chinese companies will enter the top 10 EPC list for 2013, according to IHS Solar predictions. U.S. company SunEdison will also place amongst the top five EPCs for 2013. International activity is a key feature of SunEdison’s activities, IHS Solar notes, with a project pipeline in India, South Africa, and Chile, along with its 340 MW of projects in North America. While the Japanese non-residential market is significant in 2013, project development there has had less of an impact on the IHS Solar EPC rankings, the market analysts note. This is due to the fact that projects tend to vary more in terms of size, therefore delivering a more fragmented EPC mix. Projects smaller than 2 MW have far less stringent grid connection and permitting requirements under the Japanese FIT scheme. By contrast, U.S and Chinese projects tend to be larger than 50 MW.Popular content Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Global airline passengers to exceed current world population

first_imgEmirates was one of the airlines involved in the test. Photo: Emirates. More airline passengers will be flying in 2037 than currently live on the planet, according to the latest prediction by a major aviation industry group.The International Air Transport Association predicts in its latest report that the number of people flying will double to 8.2 billion by 2037.The current population of the Earth is 7.7 billion.Read Future of FlyingThe International Air Transport Association (IATA) anticipates in its 30-year passenger forecast that passenger numbers will grow at a compound annual rate of 3.5 percent driven by growth in the Asia-Pacific.The Asia-Pacific region will drive the biggest growth with more than half the total number of new passengers over the next 20 years coming from these markets.Growth in this market is being driven by a combination of continued robust economic growth, improvements in household incomes and favorable population and demographic profiles.But the association warned that growth prospects for air transport and the economic benefits driven by aviation could be curtailed if protectionist measures are implemented by governments.“Aviation is growing, and that is generating huge benefits for the world,” said IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac.“ A doubling of air passengers in the next 20 years could support 100 million jobs globally.“There are two important things that stand out about this year’s forecast.“Firstly, we are seeing a geographical reshuffling of world air traffic to the East.“And secondly, we foresee a significant negative impact on the growth and benefits of aviation if tough and restrictive protectionist measures are implemented,”Among the changes:China will displace the United States as the world’s largest aviation market (defined as traffic to, from and within the country) in the mid-2020s. The rebalancing of China’s economy towards consumption will support strong passenger demand over the long term.Secondly, India will take 3rd place after the US, surpassing the UK around 2024.Thirdly Indonesia is forecast to be a standout performer—climbing from the world’s 10th largest aviation market in 2017 to the 4th largest by 2030.And Thailand is expected to enter the top 10 markets in 2030, replacing Italy which drops out of the ranking.last_img read more

Chalk Talk: How Cowboys Exploited WVU with One Route

first_imgThere were many times when Oklahoma State moved the ball at will in their 37-20 win over West Virginia. And while it was partly due to their talent on offense, most of it was because of an outstanding game plan.Some teams get caught grasping at straws when facing a unique defense like the 3-3-5, a defense that WVU has used for a long time. But the Cowboys went a with different route, both literally and figuratively (what an excellent segue, right?)The Cowboys used a new wrinkle in their uptempo package — one that actually came from West Virginia. OSU frequently stacked receivers wide. On their run concepts, the receiver off the line ran a ‘now’ route while the other receiver blocked. But offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich frequently called a change-up, a now-post combination, that gave Rudolph a vertical run-pass option outlet.nowpostThis new wrinkle had the first receiver run the now route and the other run a hard-breaking post route to the inside. If there was a deep-half safety over the top, the quarterback handed the ball off; but if there was no safety, or in this case one high, the quarterback aborted the handoff and threw to his receiver in man coverage.This play attacked the outside deep third, a weakness of the 3-3-5. With the Cowboys going so fast, combined with the how linebackers played so close to the line, Washington was frequently left one-on-one with seven yards of cushion. This led to easy completions like this.nowbangthrowThe Cowboys attacked this void in the defense over and over, whether it be to the weak side.bang_throwTo the strong side.slot_skinnyOr even in trips here.trips_now_curlsAnd here.now_slants_incThey also attacked the defense with other inside-breaking routes, like the slant, in blitz situations. On many third downs, the Cowboys isolated Washington on the weak side and ran a play they don’t run much anymore.stick-slantThis play is called stick, and it has a tagged slant-flat combination on the back side. Against man or man blitz, the weak-side receiver is isolated on his slant route. The Cowboys knew that WVU would bring pressure, and they used stick to convert on on a big third down on two separate instances.slantThe Cowboys used these concepts repeatedly, but they did a good job of disguising and altering them to make them look different every time. In the post-game press conference, head coach Mike Gundy talked about their simple game plan worked against the Mountaineers.“I felt like the last few years that in a short period of time … when we’ve played them, we’ve tried to reinvent the wheel based on the 3-3-5,” Gundy told the Oklahoman. “And then we get into the game and then we’re not any good at anything.“And we didn’t do that today. We ran the same plays that we’ve always run, we just tried to adjust them a little bit based on what they do. And I thought that was a smart move … We had good stuff today. We stayed within our box of what we do and it worked.”The game plan was genius. It didn’t try and be too different, yet it perfectly found ways to attack the defense’s weaknesses. The biggest strength of the 3-3-5 is how it brings pressure. The formation is excellent in the way that it disguises pressure and forces turnovers.But the Cowboys frequently used uptempo and it forced the Mountaineers into their base defense, which then gave OSU an opportunity to pick them apart. The players might have won this game, but the coaches had a huge hand in it.How do you think the offense performed?

Mike Yurcich’s Offense Put Up Monken-Like Numbers in 2016

first_img20135.91 Oklahoma State’s offense took a step forward in 2016 thanks to a phenomenal year from Mason Rudolph and an improved offensive line and running game. Mike Yurcich’s squad finished in the top 25 nationally in points per drive for the second-straight year, so we should give him a little credit too.Let’s look at the Cowboy’s offensive yards per play — another offensive stat that, while rudimentary, is a very good indicator of how effective an offense is. In 2016, the Cowboys ranked No. 12 nationally at 6.73 yards per play. That’s second-best in the Big 12 behind Oklahoma’s ridiculous 7.54 yards per play, which was No. 2 nationally.How does 2016 compare to past OSU teams? Let’s take a look. 20095.36 20117.24 20145.43 20156.39 The gold standard is 2011. That should come as no surprise but the effectiveness of the 2016 team crept towards that 7-yard average which is pretty impressive. Monken was the OC in 2011-2012 and posted over seven yards per play in each year. Dana Holgorsen posted 6.89 in his only season in Stillwater.This also puts into perspective how good Oklahoma’s offense was this year at 7.54 per play.With Oklahoma State returning most of its offensive line and skill players in oodles, Mason Rudolph and Co. could challenge the 2011 team in the yards per play department next year. 20086.98 20166.73 While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.
