Political storms swirl around California’s Newsom amid virus

first_imgSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom has gone from a governor in command to one lurching from one political crisis to the next as the coronavirus pandemic enters its second year. He’s recently faced questions over his decisions to abruptly lift stay-at-home orders and overhaul the state’s vaccine program, and his attempt to get kids back in school is stalled. Amid a Republican-led recall effort, some Democrats are starting to whisper about the need for a backup plan should voters decide to remove him. Newsom’s slide points to the pain facing leaders as virus fatigue takes hold, vaccines remain elusive and voters stop laying blame on the Trump administration.last_img read more

BNEF: Unsubsidized wind now competitive with gas in Minnesota

first_imgBNEF: Unsubsidized wind now competitive with gas in Minnesota FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Minneapolis Star-Tribune:The cost of deploying wind and solar energy continued to decline significantly in Minnesota last year, and wind — even without federal tax subsidies — may be the state’s cheapest source of new electricity.Those conclusions were included in a report released Monday by Bloomberg New Energy Finance, which annually surveys the U.S. power generation sector for the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, an industry-led group.The cost of new wind and solar power facilities in Minnesota fell by 16 percent and 23 percent respectively in 2018 over the previous year, the report found.The “levelized cost” of new, unsubsidized wind energy came in at $38 per megawatt hour (MWh), which takes into account the cost to build a power plant and its total power output, according to the Bloomberg analysis. Bloomberg didn’t have a state-by-state breakout of the levelized cost of natural gas. But wind in Minnesota is particularly cheap.“Minnesota has access to some of the best wind resources in the U.S.,” the Bloomberg report said. “As a result … new wind build in the state is likely already at parity with new combined-cycle natural gas plants even without incentives.”More: Cost of adding new wind, solar energy continues to fall in Minnesota, report sayslast_img read more

Don’t just install tech, integrate it

first_img 48SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tim Klatt As the Director of Retail Strategies for La Macchia Group, Tim Klatt brings over 15 years of experience in geographical market analysis, strategy development and large scale retail deployments for … Web: www.lamacchiagroup.com Details Credit unions are rooted in community and thrive on highly personal, relationship-driven service. These attributes are – and should remain – the core of a credit union’s mission. That increasingly means enabling technology with a purpose: creating high-touch, personalized relationships through smart technology integrations.According to Deloitte, today’s consumers expect their financial institutions to act and interact more like top technology brands. In an age where credit unions need to do all they can to avoid being “Rocket Mortgaged,” and consumers seek a fast, frictionless financial experience across various mediums, technology integration must be a top priority for credit unions of all sizes.If you’re not thinking about technology, you’re in the minority. In 2018, 78% of financial executives believed their work was going to change in the next five years because of new digital business trends. But investing in technology for your credit union is about more than “keeping up with the Joneses.” It is not simply installing screens blandly showcasing your most recent auto loan rate, or CD or using ITMs in your branches. To achieve the maximum return on investment, technology must serve a purpose. It must be integrated into your member’s journey, identifying, addressing and easing friction points for your members and acting as a seamless expression of your brand.So, what is the right kind of technology to focus on? There is no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to technology integration for credit unions. It’s important to leverage community and demographic insights to determine what your members care about and use available technology to help you connect with them. How do you know when it’s time to consider an update? If you’ve found yourself or your team saying any of the following, it’s time:“My branch feels out-of-date and out-of-touch.”Technology integration enables you to create a customized, personalized environment that is adaptable, modern and experiential. It is not about digital display, it’s about digital engagement. Taking your brand digital means you can quickly and creatively deploy custom content that instantly rejuvenates your brand and your message. Where in the past, you invested in static signage and it was “one and done,” a one-time investment in technology integration unlocks a plethora of opportunities to engage with members through meaningful, timely and relevant content.“I don’t know what my members want and need.”No one expects you to be a mind-reader. A critical first step of technology integration is to conduct demographic and member research to discover what, if any, points of friction currently exist within a member’s user financial experience. We then determine how best to leverage technology to address those issues. This is not a guessing game; it’s rooted in data and actionable insights and should clearly demonstrate a return on investment.“I need to do more with less.”How members use branches is changing. As branches become a key place for conversation and consultation, technology can supplement existing staff to ensure that while your employees are guiding individuals and families through some of life’s bigger moments like mortgages and loans, your members can still quickly and efficiently carry out their day-to-day transactional needs in a way that provides a user-focused, individualized experience.The topic of technology is hot right now – in just about every industry. But it must be more than a “hot topic” – it must be an intentional, purpose-driven business investment. The ROI is clear. True technology integration will drive business growth, profitability and member engagement, and set your credit union up to evolve alongside its members.last_img read more

Axis Scoops Two UK Clean Tech Awards

first_imgAberdeen’s Axis Energy Projects has won two national awards for its innovative Tension Leg Buoy technology that is being developed for deployment in the floating offshore wind sector.The Axis TLB is a substructure and mooring system that provides controlled stability, roll and pitch for wind turbines. It comprises a subsurface buoy that supports the wind turbine. The buoy is fixed, by tensioned tethers, to a modular gravity base anchor / foundation on the seabed.The TLB additional benefits are its off-site pre-cast fabrication, a relatively small seabed footprint, no need for piling or jack-up vessels and a simple decommissioning process. It also offers the potential for wave power.The two awards (wind and natural energy categories) were made at the Rushlight Show in London on January 30. Rushlight brought together cleantech developers with the investment community and businesses looking to source suppliers and partners.John Baross, founder and managing director of Axis, said: “It’s fantastic news that our technology has been recognised by an independent panel of experts at the Rushlight Show. It’s a great boost for the Axis team as we take forward our technology for commercial deployment in UK and overseas waters. We have used our experience and technical knowledge of working in the offshore oil and gas sector for 20 years to design the TLB™ for use in the floating offshore wind sector.”A 2018 study by Strathclyde University’s Department of Naval Architecture concluded that Axis’s Tension Leg Buoy technology, compared with other Floating Offshore wind concepts, “demonstrates better stability performance, flexibility in installation and transportation, reduced requirement for water depth, lowered tether/tendon tension fluctuation with free flooded central column and possibility of integrating a wave energy device to form a multi-energy complimentary system.”last_img read more
