Solar-plus-storage systems bring cheaper, cleaner electricity to Philippines

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Clean Technica:The small Filipino town of Paluan on the island of Mindoro has been electrified with the installation of its own Tesla battery powered solar plus storage minigrid. The new minigrid provides power to local residents who had been living on just a few hours of unstable electricity that came and went as inconsistently as the weather. To solve the situation, a new solar plus storage plus diesel solution was installed that provides stable power to residents 24 hours a day, 7 days per week for the first time ever.The system leverages a 2 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic solar installation and a 1.8 MW / 1.5 MWh Tesla Powerpack installation. The solar installation provides the bulk of the electricity required to supply the needs of residents, and the Tesla Powerpack installation stores up excess daytime solar production which can be used through the night.Three diesel generators with a combined capacity of 1,260 kilowatts (kW) was added to provide supplemental power during peak usage over the evening hours and to offset the seasonality of the solar generating system.The installation highlights how relatively simple it is for those islanded from existing electricity supply networks to install a microgrid, minigrid, or full-blown grid of their own, built on a foundation of currently available solar and storage solutions. Importantly, the installation was justified and funded without subsidies, demonstrating how competitive and practical solar plus storage installations are, even in rural regions.The system was installed by a local solar company, Solar Para Sa Bayan (SPSB), which translates to ‘Solar for the country’. The company currently supplies power to nearly 3,000 customers on the island of Paluan, while delivering significant reductions in the cost of electricity at the same time.The market is ripe for disruption, with more than 30 million Filipinos who live without reliable access to electricity. The island nature of the nation and rugged mountainous terrain makes the prospect of local energy generation and storage installations more lucrative as the cost of tapping into centralized electrical grids puts them out of reach for most of the unserved or underserved in the country.More: Solar + storage minigrids are electrifying towns across the Philippines Solar-plus-storage systems bring cheaper, cleaner electricity to Philippineslast_img read more

William Chia, The Culture Embassy: There is too little information about Croatia in China

first_imgWilliam is a corporate trainer and lecturer in countries covering the Asian Pacific, and for one term was dean of Nanjing International Business School Audit University Jinshen College. Author: HrTurizam.hr native team in cooperation with the company ProConcept During all my years spent in China, I have never come across a wildlife market, nor have I seen anyone eat strange or “funny” foods. On the contrary, I attended numerous Italian and French dinners with food and wine pairing. The Chinese extremely like to enjoy western cuisine combined with western wines which have become very common in China. In addition to the rich education he received at the Universities of Singapore, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Oxford, William has gained many significant experiences through his business practice, so the opportunity to socialize and gain new knowledge from William is certainly a great opportunity for our professionals. tourism.  And finally, what will you talk about in Zagreb at the Masterclass on the Chinese tourism market? The number of Chinese tourists, the number of trips and their consumption have grown dramatically in the last decade, and currently there is a growing interest of Chinese consumers and tourists in Croatia. How do you view this fact and what can we expect in the future? Many Western brands fail and burn out in China, firstly because they do not understand the culture, and secondly because many of them do not accept Chinese applications and social networks as inferior. While this may have been unthinkable ten years ago, the reality is that many Chinese apps and social networks in China are more advanced than Western ones. Likewise, what has a good result in the west, it is possible that there is absolutely no influence in China. MasterClass also brings new knowledge about Chinese social networks, the behavior of Chinese consumers, new moments created during this crisis and how to manage marketing and PR campaigns towards the Chinese market. Find out more details about the Chinese Tourism Market Masterclass HERE The average Chinese consumer and tourist is, contrary to popular belief, more sophisticated, insightful and demanding than ever before, and this greatly encourages the rapid development of platforms and applications on their social networks. Although Croatia was a complete unknown in the past, more and more Chinese tourists have access to information about Croatian tourist attractions, and in addition, Chinese tourists have already traveled extensively to North American and Western European destinations, so more and more of them are thinking about Croatia. Third, most Chinese applications and platforms are created for Chinese users, so Westerners face various obstacles during use. This does not mean that Croatian companies will fail to advertise in China, they just have to adapt… and adjust again. Western companies that have adapted have succeeded and continue to succeed in China. Their evolution started from a fascination with American and Anglo-Saxon culture, then an interest in European culture and art, while now, in search of new experiences that will enrich their lives, they are exposed to almost everything from all over the world. New generations of Chinese tourists publish their every step on the trip abroad on social networks, because the trip is a status symbol for them. In an informal conversation before the interview, did you mention how Chinese like to enjoy Western cuisine? Find out more specific information about the Chinese market at MasterClass on the Chinese tourism market – How to reach millions of Chinese tourists, which will take place 13.03.2020. at the Zagreb Congress Center. Next month, in Zagreb, at the MasterClass to be held at the Forum Congress Center, we will have the opportunity to meet William Chia, a marketing and PR expert in the Chinese tourism market. William will participate in the MasterClass as a lecturer. The choice of platform depends on the marketing goals of the company. Be aware of the fact that you have never encountered something like the Chinese market of 1,3 billion consumers. Contrary to popular belief, the younger generation can actually access Facebook, LinkedIn, Google and Whatsapp, etc., but the point is that the Western promotion system has no effect in China simply because its functions, language and culture do not attract Chinese consumers. He is also the editor-in-chief, content strategist, market researcher and lifestyle magazine writer who is widely distributed in southern China. He collaborates with clients from the tourism and public sector such as Château Lafite Rothschild, Oriental Mandarin, Grand Hyatt, St Regis, Hyatt Regency, Sheraton, Howard Johnson Sandalwoods, Rosewood, Ritz-Carlton, and with several European and South American consulates in China. Photo: ProConcept The question that is currently inevitable, will a corona virus epidemic threaten Chinese outbound tourism? Should we currently give up on China in our business strategy? We must never underestimate the strength of the Chinese market and the Chinese people who will definitely defeat this epidemic and its consequences, as they did with SARS a few years ago.  At MasterClass in Zagreb, with our Croatian friends and participants, I will share more knowledge about how they too can use Western and Chinese social networks for more effective promotion and conversion of Chinese consumers and tourists, all to increase their final sales result. I will give an introduction to the most popular Chinese social networks and media applications, along with various case studies and examples from my own portfolio. Second, Western media are more focused on attracting Western readers and markets. These same media portray China in a less desirable light. In addition, the Western media is sensationalist and full of inflated headlines and content. This inevitably creates a great mutual misunderstanding between the West and China. As an announcement of his arrival, we asked him a few questions about the Chinese tourism market. Yes of course. But before answering that question, I must also look further at the misperception that often occurs at the moment, and that is how the Chinese eat bats and snakes, which is certainly not true. The one who asks this question is certainly not some connoisseur of China and the Chinese. Those who consume forbidden wild animals and eat such exotic dishes are in the vast minority, the vast majority of people have a normal diet like you and me. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for social media marketing in China, so it really depends on each company and business sector. In addition, social networking platforms and applications in China may become irrelevant in just a few months, so Western companies really need to keep pace with the pace of development. The fact is that the Chinese government is doing its best to prevent the spread of the epidemic… At the same time, many Chinese complain on WeChat that they are bored at home and want to travel abroad as soon as this epidemic ends. Therefore, if nothing else, Croatian companies should use this moment to plan, develop a strategy and start their marketing and PR campaigns in China. When the epidemic ends it will be in a good position to attract Chinese consumers and tourists. Here we encounter a problem, there is still very little information about Croatia in China, and the available content and marketing channels are not effective enough to reach Chinese consumers and the real tourism market. As William Chia emphasized, Croatian companies should use this moment to plan, develop a strategy and start their marketing and PR campaigns in China. And how to get attention in this large and totally different tourist market, learn first hand from the keynote lecturer –  Joanne Chan of IPPWORLD i William Chia from The Culture Embassy. Fourth, the Western Hemisphere is relatively slower and is just becoming cashless, and China, with Alipay and WePay, has already turned into a cashless society. In China, no one uses credit cards or cash anymore. All payment methods that increase the complexity of the digital sphere in China should be built into your Chinese strategy as well. How did you open the topic of promotion on the Chinese market, which digital platforms would you recommend to Croatian companies for marketing and PR campaigns in China?last_img read more

Australia offers safe haven to Hong Kongers

first_imgChina has bristled at widespread global criticism of the law and Australia’s move to provide safe haven to some Hong Kong citizens was expected to worsen already rising tensions between the two.Beijing in recent months has imposed tariffs on some Australian imports and impeded trade in other key commodities in response to Australian steps to counter Chinese interference in the country.China, Australia’s biggest trade partner and a competitor for influence in the Pacific, was notably infuriated when Canberra led calls for a probe into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.New Zealand is also reviewing its relationship with Hong Kong because of the new law, Foreign Minister Winston Peters said, “including extradition arrangements, controls on exports of strategic goods, and travel advice”. “Australia is adjusting its laws, our sovereign laws, our sovereign immigration program, things that we have responsibility for and jurisdiction over, to reflect the changes that we’re seeing take place there,” he said during a press conference.Foreign Minister Marise Payne said China’s moves in Hong Kong were discussed earlier Thursday with Australia’s so-called “Five Eyes” security partners — New Zealand, the United States, Britain, and Canada.Morrison’s announcement came a day after China opened a new office in Hong Kong for its security agents to oversee implementation of the law targeting acts of subversion, secession, terrorism and foreign collusion.The law, which followed sometimes-violent pro-democracy protests, is the most radical change in Hong Kong’s freedoms since Britain handed the city back to China in 1997 under an agreement designed to preserve its freedoms for 50 years. Australia on Thursday offered pathways to permanent residency for thousands of people from Hong Kong, in a risky challenge to China over its crackdown on dissent in the city.Prime Minister Scott Morrison said his government was also suspending its extradition agreement with the city and in addition to extending the visas of 10,000 Hong Kongers already in the country, threw open the door to thousands more to start a new life Down Under.Morrison said the decisions were taken in response to the imposition by China last week of a tough new security law in Hong Kong, which he said “constitutes a fundamental change of circumstances” for the semi-autonomous territory. Topics : Permanent residency pathway Morrison brushed aside questions about whether the challenge over Hong Kong would likely lead to further Chinese retaliation.”We will make decisions about what’s in our interests, and we will make decisions about our laws and our advisories, and we will do that rationally and soberly and consistently,” he said.Under the new measures, 10,000 Hong Kong citizens and residents in Australia on student or temporary work visas will be allowed to remain in the country for an additional five years.”If you’re a temporary visa holder, your visa will be extended to an additional five years from today, in addition to the time you’ve already been in Australia, with a pathway to permanent residency at the end of that period,” Morrison said.The five-year visa and possible permanent residency were also offered to Hong Kong entrepreneurs or skilled workers who wish to relocate to Australia in the future.”If there are businesses that wish to relocate to Australia, creating jobs, bringing investment, creating opportunities for Australia, then we will be very proactive in seeking to encourage that,” he said.The move echoed Australia’s response to the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown when Canberra offered refuge to thousands of Chinese students and their families.But it contrasts with the current conservative government’s policy of restricting immigration.Morrison said he did not expect a rush of new visa applications from Hong Kongers, in part due to coronavirus travel restrictions.And he added that it would be “very disappointing” if China tried to prevent Hong Kong citizens from taking advantage of the offer.Australia has already warned its citizens of the risk of detention under the new security law.Shortly before Morrison’s announcement, the foreign ministry warned Australians in Hong Kong of the risk of detention under the new security law.last_img read more

Tearful Jeremy Lin seeks NBA return after one season in China

first_imgJeremy Lin said Tuesday he is leaving the Beijing Ducks after one season in China and wants to return to the NBA, where he sparked the “Linsanity” craze of 2012.The 32-year-old guard, who as a Toronto Raptors player in 2019 became the first Asian-American to win an NBA championship, signed for Beijing as an unrestricted free agent last year.Lin helped Beijing reach the semi-finals of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league, where they were edged out by eventual champions Guangdong Southern Tigers. Lin began his NBA career with Golden State Warriors in 2010 before his heroics with the New York Knicks in 2012 sparked a frenzy that was dubbed “Linsanity”.He went on to play for several other NBA teams but has struggled with injury in recent seasons.Despite that he enjoyed a successful stay in China, where the CBA was suspended for almost five months because of the coronavirus.Lin averaged 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game during the regular season.”I know that many of my fans have stood by me no matter if I was injured,” he said in the video.”Why was this decision so difficult? Yesterday, when I shared this with my family and friends, when I told them I would have to leave China, I cried.”Topics : “This decision has really been the hardest in my life,” Lin, who has complained about the rough-house treatment he received in the CBA, told his seven million followers in a video on the Twitter-like Weibo.”Every morning I would wake up at 4:00 am or 5:00 am, thinking, thinking and thinking all the time.”In the end, although Shougang (the Ducks) has treated me incredibly well… giving me everything I wanted, in the end, I feel that I still have NBA dreams. “I still have time to play (there) and I have to chase this.”last_img read more
