Sunrise brief: On Earth Day, Biden pledges to cut U.S. emissions by 50% by 2030

Also on the rise: Recurrent Energy starts work on a 100 MW solar project for Entergy Mississippi, Elon Musk says that Tesla solar panels will only be sold with its Powerwall battery, FPL starts work on another solar project, and Atlas signs a BESS agreement with Hitachi ABB.

On Earth Day 2021, President Biden set a new target for the United States to achieve a 50-52% reduction from 2005 levels in economy-wide net greenhouse gas pollution by 2030.

The announcement was made during a two-day international Leaders Summit on Climate that Biden organized in an effort to challenge the world on addressing climate change.

Gregory Wetstone, president and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy, said that the Nationally Determined Contribution submitted by the Biden administration “sends a clear message that the United States is ready to embrace the economic transformation necessary to tackle the climate crisis.”

In the industrial sector, the Biden administration pointed to possible carbon reductions through carbon capture as well as new sources of hydrogen

As part of the administration’s ambition to halve U.S. emissions, it set a goal to reach 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035. It aims to do that by deploying a range of generating resources, transmission, and energy storage, and by retrofitting fossil-fueled power plants with carbon capture technology. Nuclear power is also part of the administration’s mix of technology options.

Another goal is to pursue efficiency upgrades and electrification in buildings. This would be done through wider use of heat pumps and induction stoves, and adoption of modern energy codes for new buildings. The U.S. will also invest in new technologies to reduce emissions associated with construction, including for high-performance electrified buildings.

As part of the administration’s ambition to halve U.S. emissions, it set a goal to reach 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035.

In the transportation sector, the administration said that the emission goals can be met in part by reducing tailpipe emissions and boosting the efficiency of cars and trucks; by providing funding for charging infrastructure for electric vehicles; and by spurring research, development, demonstration, and deployment efforts for renewable fuels for applications like aviation.

In the industrial sector, the Biden administration pointed to possible carbon reductions through carbon capture as well as new sources of hydrogen—produced from renewable energy, nuclear energy, or waste—to power industrial facilities. It said the government can use its procurement power to support early markets for these low- and zero-carbon industrial goods.

The administration also said that the U.S. will invest in innovation to improve and broaden the set of solutions as a “critical complement to deploying the affordable, reliable, and resilient clean technologies and infrastructure available today.”

Work starts on BTA solar project

Canadian Solar said that its Recurrent Energy unit has started work on the 100 MW Sunflower Solar Project in western Mississippi. To support construction, Recurrent closed debt financing totaling more than $146 million with Norddeutsche Landesbank and Rabobank.

Sunflower is being built under a Build Transfer Agreement. Recurrent signed a BTA with Entergy Mississippi in 2018 designating that the utility will own the Sunflower solar project when it reaches commercial operation in early 2022. The BTA was approved by state utility regulators in April 2020. The project will use Canadian Solar’s high-efficiency modules.

Tesla solar panels and Powerwall batteries

News reports said that Tesla solar panels and roof will only be sold together with its Powerwall battery. Solar power from these panels will feed exclusively to Powerwall, CEO Elon Musk reportedly said in a series of tweets.

His comments followed a Twitter exchange with Ark Investment Management’s Director of Research Brett Winton who said his solar installed by Tesla in January “hasn’t generated a single watt-hour” and that he was waiting for his utility to approve the connection. Musk said during Tesla’s fourth-quarter earnings call in January that the company was focusing on further integrating Powerwall with its solar division. The Twitter announcement would seem to move that idea forward.

Another FPL solar plans is under way

A fourth Florida Power & Light Co. solar energy center begins construction in May, this time on the 74.5 MW Grove Solar Energy Center near Vero Beach on Florida’s east coast. Work is expected to be completed this summer. FPL currently has 37 solar energy centers in operation. The company plans to have more than 100 solar energy centers across Florida by 2030.

Atlas signs BESS agreement with Hitachi ABB

Miami-based Atlas Renewable Energy signed a Collaboration Agreement with Hitachi ABB Power Grids to jointly develop and execute battery energy storage systems (BESS) at a utility scale level for Atlas’ renewable projects.

The agreement will allow Hitachi ABB Power Grids to take part in developing and deploying BESS in new projects across Latin America. Hitachi ABB Power Grids will be invited to participate in tenders launched by Atlas Renewable Energy for the Engineering Package of the projects.

The main objective behind this agreement is to ensure that BESS can be successfully integrated into the design of new projects during the early development stage.

Two years ago, Atlas announced that it would be one of the first generators in Latin America to roll-out the TrueCapture system developed by Nextracker. Through the use of TrueCapture, the company’s solar plants tracking system has been optimized to the modular level resulting in an increase of the plants’ overall performance and efficiency.

Atlas Renewable Energy has also been one of the first developers to test bifacial modules and to introduce this technology on large scale, with around 1 GW of capacity being generated with this panel technology.

Atlas has around 2.2 GW of contracted projects in development, construction or operational stages, and aims to expand that amount by an additional 4 GW.

Aris Gold Announces Q1 2021 Results and AGM Voting

Avatar

Published

on

VANCOUVER, BC, May 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Aris Gold Corporation (Aris Gold or the Company) (TSX: ARIS) (OTCQX: ALLXF) reports Q1 2021 financial and operating results and the voting results of its Annual General Meeting (AGM) held earlier today. All amounts are in US dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

Highlights of Financial and Operating Results

Aris Gold has continued to advance the Lower Mine project at the Marmato mine in Colombia, with notable developments including:

  • The Company successfully negotiated a 30-year extension of the mining title at the Marmato mine to October 2051, which included an agreement with the Agencia Nacional de Mineria (ANM) allowing Aris Gold to proceed with its expansion plans for the Lower Mine.
  • The escrow release conditions under the Aris Gold-led financing were satisfied and C$85 million of cash in escrow was released.
  • Following the completion of a competitive tender process, Aris Gold awarded the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to Wood, a global leader in consulting and engineering with extensive experience delivering mining projects across Latin America.
  • On April 15, 2021, Aris Gold received $34 million of the $110 million precious metals stream financing from Wheaton Precious Metals International Ltd. Under the terms of the precious metals purchase agreement, the remaining $76 million will be received in three installments as the development of the Lower Mine progresses.
  • Aris Gold strengthened its operating and construction teams at Marmato with the reorganization of management and the addition of two senior operations executives.
  • Aris Gold continued with the 35,000-metre drill program at Marmato which commenced in May 2020, with the principal objective of converting Inferred Mineral Resources to Indicated Mineral Resources while also testing several newly discovered areas. Consistent with previous results under the program, drilling during the first quarter of 2021 continued to show high-grade mineralization over broad widths demonstrating potential to extend the 13-year mine life outlined in the Marmato Technical Report. As of May 2021, this drill program is approximately 60% complete.
  • Aris Gold continued to advance its community projects. The Company completed construction of a new municipal park in the community of Marmato in March 2021, and expects to complete construction in May 2021 of a modern new community centre which will provide a central location for education and training.

Q1 2021 Financial and Operating Highlights

  • Revenue totalled $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, 29% higher than the first quarter of 2020, primarily due to the 14% increase in the average realized gold price to $1,802 per ounce and the 13% increase in gold ounces sold to 7,412 in the first quarter of 2021.
  • Aris Gold incurred a total of $7.1 million of capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2021. This was comprised of the $4.3 million spent on the Lower Mine, including $2.0 million for the Lower Mine drilling campaign, and $2.8 million in the Marmato Upper Mine, including $1.1 million of non-sustaining and other capital relating to the modernization of the operations and $1.7 million of sustaining capital primarily related to underground mine development.
  • At March 31, 2021, Aris Gold had cash and cash equivalents of $143.4 million, representing an increase from $32.0 million at the end of 2020, primarily due to the receipt of funds from escrow related to the Gold-linked notes and the Aris Gold-led financing, partially offset by cash outflows from operating and investing activities. On April 15, 2021, Aris Gold received $34 million of the $110 million precious metals stream financing.
  • In the first quarter of 2021, Aris Gold reported a net loss of $8.4 million ($0.07 per share) (Q1 2020: $17.6 million ($0.47 per share)). This was primarily driven by the decrease in margin from mining operations and once-off acquisition and restructuring costs of $12.8 million (Q1 2020: nil).

Aris Gold’s Q1 2021 financial statements and related MD&A are available on SEDAR and in the Investors section of Aris Gold’s website here.
