Duke Energy North Carolina survived and thrived in 2020, with record-setting solar

Avatar

Published

on

An unpredictable year saw the utility add 5,500 residential and commercial solar systems in North Carolina, contract for the largest floating solar system in the Southeast, and add three major players to the company’s Green Source Advantage program.

Despite all of the factors that made 2020 the year it was, Duke Energy reports that it was a record-breaking year for the company in North Carolina, with roughly 5,500 residential and commercial customers in the state installing solar systems last year.

The company attributes a significant portion of this installation figure to its five-year, $62 million rooftop solar rebate program.

Residential customers who are approved for rebates will get a $0.60/W credit for their installed solar system, up to 10 kW or $6,000, while businesses are eligible for a $0.50/W credit and nonprofits are eligible for $0.75/W. These nonresidential projects cap out at 100 kW of installed capacity, meaning a maximum credit of $50,000 for businesses and $75,000 for nonprofits.

In the company’s own solar pursuits, Duke connected nearly 350 MW of solar capacity in North Carolina last year, headlined by the 69 MW Maiden Creek solar facility in Catawba County and the 25 MW Gaston County solar facility in Bessemer City.

While not as substantial in the capacity department, Duke also came to an agreement with the U.S. Army’s Fort Bragg to install a 1.1 MW floating solar system on Camp Mackall’s Big Muddy Lake, as part of a $36 million energy services effort.

These capacity additions helped Duke to reach the milestone of having more than 3.7 GW of solar capacity connected to its energy grid in North Carolina. The company also reached its goal of owning and contracting for 8 GW of wind, solar, and biomass generation around the nation, a goal which has since been doubled to 16 GW by 2025.

2020 was also a milestone year for Duke’s Green Source Advantage (GSA) program, which allows large-scale customers to offset power purchases by securing renewable energy from projects connected to the Duke Energy grid. In 2020, the utility came to terms with the City of Charlotte, Bank of America, and Duke University on GSA contracts.

Charlotte’s agreement is for a 35 MW installation, set to be built within the city. Bank of America agreed to a 25 MW project in the Piedmont region, and Duke University came to terms on a 101 MW deal from three solar facilities in the state.

Published

on

PORTLAND, Ore., March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Allied Market Research published a report, titled, “Stealth Coating Market by Resin Type (Epoxy, Polyurethane, and Polyimide) and Application (Aerospace & Defense, and Automotive): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2020-2027.” According to the report, the global stealth coating market garnered $249.0 million in 2019, and is projected to garner $375.0 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2020 to 2027.

Prime determinants of growth

Rise in epoxy stealth coatings demand and increase in application from the aerospace & defense industry drive the growth of the global stealth coating market. However, high cost of investment restrains the market growth. Contrarily, surge in investment in R&D for stealth technology creates new opportunities in the next few years.

Request PDF Brochure: https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/10654

COVID-19 Scenario

  • Manufacturing activities of stealth ships, aircrafts, and drones has been restricted to the significant extent due to the lockdown measures taken by the governments of various countries including Russia, China, and others.
  • Furthermore, manufacturers of the fifth-generation stealth fighter aircraft halted their manufacturing activities, which in turn, led to lowered demand for stealth coating.

The epoxy segment to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period

By resin type, the epoxy segment accounted for the highest market share, contributing to nearly half of the global stealth coating market in 2019, and is estimated to maintain its leadership status during the forecast period. This is due to increase in applications in the aerospace & defense and automotive sectors along with its properties such as strength, durability, and chemical resistance. However, the polyurethane segment is expected to manifest the highest CAGR of 5.8% from 2020 to 2027, owing to growth of the automotive industry and surge in demand and production of luxurious cars across the developing countries such as India and China.

The aerospace & defense segment to maintain its dominance during the forecast period

Based on application, the aerospace & defense segment contributed to the largest market share in 2019, accounting for nearly 90% of the global stealth coating market, and is projected to maintain its dominance in terms of revenue during the forecast period. Moreover, this segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2027. This is due to vital role played by stealth technology in next-generation military assets such as aircraft, ships, and drones along with rise in aircraft production and demand. The report also analyzes the automotive segment.

North America to maintain its lead position by 2027

By region, North America held the highest market share in 2019, accounting for more than two-fifths of the global stealth coating market, and is estimated to maintain its lead position by 2027. Moreover, this segment is projected to maintain the highest CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. This is due to rise in aircraft production, especially in the U.S. and increase in consumption of stealth coatings in luxurious cars. The report also discusses regions including Asia-Pacific, Europe, and LAMEA.

NAIROBI, Kenya, March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Azuri Technologies, a pioneer in pay-as-you-go solar home solutions for off-grid Africa, has announced its inaugural Inspiring Women’s Awards to celebrate women’s empowerment and influence in rural communities.

Based on peer feedback, the 10 most inspirational female staff, including field agents and customer care representatives of the solar company’s Kenyan network, have been recognised for their outstanding contributions. The award is part of Azuri’s Brighter Lives initiative which works to empower rural women in Sub-Saharan Africa through access to technology, in-depth commercial and technical training and equal opportunities employment.

One of the winners, Dynnah Pesa, said: “I am so grateful to hear that I am inspiring to my peers. I was the first one to begin selling the items in Kakamega and so happy to now be a team leader. I strive to encourage my team so that they can succeed and in turn provide for their families. I am so happy to see that they voted for me. This has given me a push to keep on encouraging my team.”

Nominations for the awards included recommendations from agents inspired to join Azuri from seeing female role models in their jobs, team leaders impressed by their colleagues’ work ethic and appreciative new-starters looking to celebrate their female mentors.

Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Energy, Hon. Charles Keter, said: “On this International Women’s day, I would like to offer my congratulations to the winners of the Inspiring Women’s Awards. I trust this public recognition will inspire even more women to join the renewable energy industry and support Kenya’s transition to clean energy for all.”

Jane Marriott, the British High Commissioner, said: “Congratulations to the wonderful women recognised by this award on International Women’s Day, a chance to celebrate those women who deserve our recognition and gratitude all year round. Businesses for the future need diverse workforces at their heart, so I’m delighted to see this initiative from Azuri. The UK is proud to support gender equality in Kenya and across the world, which is more vital than ever as we build cleaner, greener societies for future generations.”

Simon Bransfield-Garth, CEO of Azuri said: “Brighter Lives was created to encourage full and active participation of women in the Azuri workforce. On this first anniversary of the launch of the program, I am delighted to see the impact that has been achieved and its effect on encouraging more women into the workplace.”

Azuri’s Brighter Lives initiative was launched in February 2020 and features a program of tailored recruitment, training and mentoring specifically targeting rural women who are largely under-represented in the workplace. The programme is designed to help women build success together, learning from role models and creating powerful bonds to improve business success.

Lamor Corporation Acquires License for Rapid Response HARBO Boom

Avatar

Published

on

PORVOO, Finland, March 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Lamor Corporation is pleased to announce the acquisition of the licensing rights to HARBO Technologies’ product line.

Their rapid response oil spill solutions will be a great addition to an already strong response product and solution portfolio. HARBO has developed the lightest oil spill response boom on the market. The modular system fits in a simple box which can be quickly deployed by only one person. HARBO’s oil spill first response system enhances the entire oil spill response process and boosts clean-up efficiency. By responding eight times faster, HARBO technology enables increased oil recovery rates and drastically reduces damage.

“I am excited about this fantastic addition to Lamor’s offering which will help us serve our current customers, participate in new markets and develop a complete Rapid Spill Response solution, meeting the unique challenges of today’s marketplace,” says Brandon Buzarde, Vice President of Global Business Development at Lamor. “The HARBO boom will provide the rapid response solution which so many companies and organisations need.”

Every minute is critical during an oil spill, so HARBO’s philosophy is to provide a solution which can be quickly and easily deployed. The HARBO boom can be stored on vessels, offshore rigs, harbour facilities or anywhere a spill could occur. A good example is using a fire extinguisher while the fire brigade is on the way. A fast, safe and efficient response can more quickly stop a spill from spreading, saving money, your reputation and the environment.

“Lamor is one of the top companies in this industry and they have decades of experience cleaning the world,” says Igor Kwiatkowski, Lamor’s Product Line Director for HARBO integration and development. “Partnering with Lamor will allow us to prove the worth of HARBO’s rapid response solutions to even more people.”

The HARBO rapid response booms are available now, but even more solutions are on the way. HARBO products will form the core of a suite of Lamor rapid response tools and integrating specialised solutions. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of HARBO’s rapid response offering, please contact us at [email protected] or visit us online at lamor.com/harbo-boom-lamor-corporation.
