Solar gains a toehold at an iconic Oil Patch crossroads

Published

on

Deep in the heart of the Oil Patch, Getka Group said it plans to build up to a 40 MW solar generation facility in Cushing, Oklahoma, to power mobile data centers, terminal operations, and oil pipelines.

Cushing is home to one of the world’s largest oil-storage tank farms, with a working capacity of more than 10% of total U.S. storage. It is also the delivery and pricing point for West Texas Intermediate crude oil future contracts, a global benchmark.

The solar generation will initially power Plexus industrial data centers, which deliver off-grid power and data center services for the energy and technology sectors. The system will also supply power to Getka’s planned terminal expansion in Cushing, which the company said will include tank designs to minimize and capture emissions and will use solar power for terminal operations.

Getka said it plans to reduce so-called avoidable emissions through renewable energy and operational processes, working toward zero emissions for its oil and refined-products terminals.

Based in Tulsa, Getka Group is focused on upstream mineral production, acquisitions and operations, asset development, pipeline and terminal infrastructure, as well as alternative and renewable energy operations. Getka recently launched a solar division and said it is developing megawatt-scale solar facilities in the U.S. and Europe.

Alphabet and Google Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat Calls on Global Community to Join Compact in Address to United Nations General Assembly

NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Leading energy buyers, suppliers, solutions providers and governments announced today the formal launch of the 24/7 Carbon-free Energy Compact in partnership with Sustainable Energy for All and the UN Energy. The Compact represents a new global effort to accelerate the transition to a carbon-free electricity sector to mitigate the worst impacts of climate change. SEforALL and Google made the announcement today during the United Nations High level Dialogue on Energy in New York. In addition to Google, founding signatories of the Compact include The AES Corporation, Orsted, EDP, the city of Des Moines, Iowa, the government of Iceland, and others.

A carbon-free electricity sector is the foundation for creating a net-zero emissions global economy. Electricity generates 25% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions, and is key to decarbonizing other sectors of the economy, including buildings, transport, and industry. Meeting this challenge will require a rapid acceleration in the pace of clean energy deployment, the development of advanced carbon-free energy technologies, and significant policy changes.

SEforALL and Google are calling on companies, governments, and other stakeholders to join the Compact in the lead up to November’s COP26 Conference in Glasgow and commit to advancing policies, procurement practices, tools, and data that are critical to fully decarbonizing the world’s electricity systems. The Compact lays out a set of principles and actions that actors can take to adopt, enable, and advance 24/7 Carbon-free Energy, focusing on hourly decarbonization of local and regional electricity grids.

“The world is at a crossroads. We can either continue with business as usual or embrace change that leads to a more sustainable and equitable future. This starts with making the important link between energy and climate. The Energy Compacts that have been put forward as part of this historic UN High-Level Dialogue on Energy have resulted in ambitious commitments and actions that will help address energy poverty while working towards decarbonization. The 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy Compact represents a critical partnership across business, countries, cities and others that will propel us closer to our 2030 Global Energy Goals,” said SEforALL CEO & Special Representative to the UN Secretary-General Damilola Ogunbiyi.

“Tackling climate change requires government and business to work together with urgency and focus. The Compact is the first collective action group to bring together companies, national and local governments, and other stakeholders to drive innovation and investment in 24/7 carbon-free electricity grids, and we are hopeful that it will facilitate significant progress. Time is not on our side– we need to act now– and we look forward to others joining with Google in our efforts,” said Google CFO Ruth Porat.

Founding signatories of the Compact include: 8 Rivers Capital, The AES Corporation, ClearTrace, the city of Des Moines, Iowa, EDP, Energy Tag, Fervo Energy, FlexiDAO, Google, the government of Iceland, Iron Mountain, the city of Ithaca, New York, LevelTen Energy, M-RETS, Orsted, Power Ledger, Statkraft, Tomorrow, and X. Signatories of the Compact commit to advance the procurement practices, market mechanisms, policies, technologies, and energy data transparency needed to enable the rapid and cost-effective achievement of 24/7 carbon-free energy for all.

“As a developer of cutting-edge clean energy solutions, 8 Rivers is excited to work with Google and the world-class partners in this Compact to accelerate the global energy transition to a 24/7 carbon-free power system, so anyone can access reliable clean electricity any hour of the day,” said 8 Rivers Capital Chief Executive Officer Cam Hosie.

“Taking action against climate change is the most important and urgent issue facing us today, and AES is proud to join the 24/7 Carbon-free Energy Compact. Together, we’re co-creating new solutions, such as the first-of-its-kind agreement to supply 24/7 carbon-free energy to Google’s data centers in Virginia, that will accelerate a smarter, greener energy future,” said AES President and Chief Executive Officer Andrés Gluski.

“As we strive for a net zero future, it’s clear that corporations — who are among the largest energy consumers — need solutions to help them accurately manage and track power-related emissions. We are proud to support and enable the transition to a carbon-free energy future,” said ClearTrace Chief Executive Officer Lincoln Payton.

“I want to commend and thank the many global partners who join me in supporting the transformation of electric grids to ‘absolute zero’ – or full decarbonization – by adopting, enabling, and advancing the 24/7 CFE Compact Statement. Our commitment as a City to decarbonized energy systems supports a future for clean energy and ensures that all residents have access to affordable, reliable and sustainable energy,” said Mayor of Des Moines, Iowa, Frank Cownie.

“EDP is thrilled to join the Global Compact for 24/7 Carbon-Free Energy. We are proud to be at the forefront of the development of new technologies to accelerate the decarbonization of electricity systems and promote the globalization of access to clean energy,” said EDP Chief Executive Officer Miguel Stilwell Andrade.

“24/7 carbon-free energy is a critical development in energy procurement practices and EnergyTag is delighted to be a signatory of this Compact. EnergyTag is an industry-led, non-profit initiative to define and build a market for granular energy certificates, which enable consumers to verify the source of their electricity consumption on an hourly basis and harness consumer demand for 24/7 carbon-free energy to drive investments,” said EnergyTag Founder Dr. Toby Ferenczi.

“24/7 carbon-free energy is the next step in advancing progress to address climate change. Fervo Energy is excited to sign on to this important effort and to continue driving forward geothermal innovations to create a truly carbon free grid,” said Fervo Energy Chief Executive Officer Tim Latimer.

“At FlexiDAO, we provide software solutions and advisory to help companies achieve their net-zero goals and become true leaders of the energy transition. For this reason, we are extremely excited to partner with Google and to join the 24/7 Carbon-free Energy Compact,” said FlexiDAO Chief Executive Officer Simone Accornero.

“Iron Mountain recognizes both the urgent need to decarbonize our energy grid and the opportunity we have as an energy buyer to make a meaningful impact. We support the ultimate ambition of meeting each kilowatt needed every hour with generation from a local carbon free source and have made this a cornerstone of how we buy and consume power,” said Iron Mountain Director of Energy and Sustainability Chris Pennington.

Carbon free electricity is essential to achieve full decarbonization. By joining the 24/7 Carbon-free Energy Compact, the City of Ithaca, N.Y., reiterates its commitment to expanding access to carbon free electricity as a pathway to a clean energy future,” said Director of Sustainability for the City of Ithaca, New York, Dr. Luis Aguirre-Torres.

“Matching every kilowatt-hour of electricity consumption with carbon-free electricity sources requires a transformative approach to energy procurement, and LevelTen is committed to building the software solutions required to give more organizations this opportunity. Together, with our network of energy and sustainability advisors, we look forward to helping more energy buyers achieve their 24/7 carbon-free goals,” said LevelTen Energy Chief Executive Officer Bryce Smith.

“M-RETS is excited to participate in this initiative as the first registry to support an hourly REC claim in partnership with Google. This initiative is an important step in facilitating a data driven renewable energy market,” said M-RETS President and Chief Executive Officer Ben Gerber.

“Ørsted’s vision is to create a world running entirely on green energy, and this includes meeting demand every hour of every day. We already know the solutions to get a long part of the way towards 24/7 renewable energy and we’re committed to facilitating the last difficult stretch of the journey together with our partners,” said Ørsted Senior Vice President – Region Continental Europe Rasmus Errboe.

“The movement to 24/7 renewables with hourly matching through PPAs and RECs is the best solution to scale renewable energy because it puts a price signal on when and where power is needed and supports an energy system that is stable, low cost and low carbon. The Powerledger platform can stamp the time and location data from clean energy production onto renewable energy certificates and other commodities, enabling energy retailers like eKwateur and RE100 companies on registries like M-RETS to seamlessly trade, match and manage their portfolios on an hourly basis,” said Powerledger Chairman & Co-Founder Dr. Jemma Green.

“With the increased penetration of renewable energy on the grid, it becomes even more crucial to measure emissions at a high resolution. At electricityMap we’re very excited to see this initiative come to fruition, and we hope that it will help bring the measurement of emissions closer to the physical reality,” said Founder and CEO of Tomorrow Olivier Corradi.

“We are proud to join this crucial Compact. At X, we recognize that the complexity of decarbonising the grid in the time required to tackle climate change requires commitment and collaboration of governments and businesses throughout the value chain and across the world to the actions necessary to design and operate a decarbonized power grid. Our moonshot is to work with partners to develop and apply advanced computing to support the design and operation of a decarbonized, affordable, reliable and resilient power system,” said X Vice President Audrey Zibelman.

Each signatory will capture their specific commitments in their own Energy Compact, an innovation introduced by SEforALL and backed by UN-Energy as a key outcome of the UN High-level Dialogue on Energy.

Die richtige Autobatterie ist nur der halbe Weg: Exide stellt neue Funktionen seines Battery Finder-Tools vor

Published

on

Ein Batteriewechsel war niemals leichter, dank des erweiterten Battery Finder-Tools von Exide Technologies. Vom Eintreffen des Fahrzeugs in der Werkstatt bis zur Übergabe an den Kunden – Kfz-Mechaniker haben stets alle relevanten Information für den schnellen und professionellen Einbau zur Hand.

Nach Identifizierung der richtigen Batterie – anhand der Fahrzeugmarke/des Modells, der Fahrzeugidentifikationsnummer (FIN) oder der KBA-Nummer – zeigt Exide die benötigten Detailinformationen zum Einbau an:

  • Lage der Batterie – Je nach Fahrzeug variiert die Lage der Batterie stark: Sie kann sich rechts oder links vom Motor, vorne oder hinten im Fahrzeug, unter der Motorhaube oder im Kofferraum befinden. Exide erspart den Benutzern das Konsultieren des Fahrzeughandbuchs und zeigt die Lage der Batterie für das jeweilige Modell an. Damit sparen sie Zeit und Energie.
  • Ungefähre Arbeitszeit – Der Batteriewechsel ist je nach Fahrzeug und Modell unterschiedlich komplex. Die Kenntnis dieser Komplexität ermöglicht es den Mechanikern, die ungefähre Arbeitszeit und die Kosten der Reparatur im Voraus präziser abzuschätzen.
  • Durchführung des Batteriewechsels – Mechanikern wird angezeigt, wie man die Fahrzeugbatterie an- und abklemmt und die zugehörigen Funktionen einrichtet, wie z. B. die Initialisierung von Fensterhebern und Getriebeeinstellungen – das Tool führt sie durch den gesamten Prozess.
  • Erforderliche Validierung der ausgewechselten Batterie und Registrierung im Batteriemanagementsystem des Fahrzeugs. Die Registrierung ist ein wichtiger Teil des Batteriewechsels: Sie ermöglicht es dem Fahrzeug, sich an die Kenndaten der neuen Batterie anzupassen. Wird eine neue Batterie nicht korrekt registriert, kann dies dazu führen, dass das Fahrzeug nicht anspringt oder das elektrische System oder die Batterie selbst beschädigt werden. Das Batterie-Registrierungs-Tool von Exide vereinfacht den Prozess und gibt Sicherheit.
