Eskom gets $365m clean energy loan

first_imgIt is expected that the project will lay the foundation for a future fleet of power plants by demonstrating solar field and power plant technology. Emission savings are estimated at about 5-million tons of CO2 equivalent – over a 20-year life span – for the Sere wind power project and 9-million tons for the Upington solar power plant. Diversifying energy mix 7 June 2011 “Eskom is committed to reducing its carbon footprint,” Eskom CEO Brian Dames told BuaNews this week. “This is an exciting time in the company’s history with its first large-scale introduction of two critically important renewable energy projects in its fleet.” The loan, which was concluded under the South African Government Guarantee for Eskom’s debt, is for 40 years. Currently, South Africa generates barely 22MW in wind power and has no grid connected solar power generation capacity. While it is more expensive to generate power from renewables than from coal-fired production, the goal is to decrease their marginal cost over time. Apart from providing financing, AfDB will also transfer critical knowledge of how to design and manage wind and solar energy projects to South African experts, enabling the country to take a major step towards an economy powered by cleaner energy. According to a statement by the African Development Bank (AfDB) this week, the financial package includes $265-million from the bank’s own reserves, as well as a $100-million concessional loan from the Clean Technology Fund. Carbon emissions savingscenter_img Catalyst for larger scale delivery According to the AfDB, about 90% of electrical energy produced in the country in 2010, was derived from fossil fuels, emitting approximately 224.7-million tons of CO2, and making the South African economy one of the most carbon-intensive in the world. “In addition to the tremendous environmental benefits, the project will have a positive impact on job creation,” the AfDB said. The funds will allow Eskom to implement its $1.3-billion renewable energy programme that includes a 100MW concentrated solar power plant at Upington in the Northern Cape and a 100MW wind farm near Koekenaap in the Western Cape. These projects respond directly to South Africa’s need for more energy and to diversify its energy mix, gradually increasing the weight of clean energy to 42% by 2030 as anticipated in South Africa’s Integrated Resource Plan, released earlier this year. “The two initiatives are the first of their kind in a region where they are seen as a test case and catalyst for larger-scale delivery of power using renewable technologies to displace considerable future CO2 emissions,” Hela Cheikhrouhou, director of the AfDB’s energy, environment and climate change department, said in a statement this week. South African state company Eskom has secured a US$365-million (about R2.46-billion) loan from the African Development Bank to fund construction of a concentrated solar power plant at Upington in the Northern Cape and a wind farm near Koekenaap in the Western Cape.

The Future of Education Summit focuses on policy and investment

first_imgDiscussions at The Future of Education Summit included a focus on higher education and the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It was the third iteration of the annual gathering.Gauteng Premier David Makhura is one of the speakers at The Future of Education Summit on 29 November 2017 in Johannesburg. He says Africa’s most important resource is its youth. “For us to make the economy better, we must first invest in skills and then invest in infrastructure.” (Images: Melissa Javan)Melissa JavanRegulations and investment in education by the public and private sectors were among the topics on the agenda at The Future of Education Summit.Rakesh Wahl, co-founder of ABN Group and founder of the summit, welcomed guests to the gathering. He said there was a diverse group of speakers that included people from local and international universities. Held on 29 November 2017 in Sandton, it was the third annual summit.Challenges that needed to be addressed in education included overcrowding, underfunding and quality concerns, Wahl said.Gauteng Premier David Makhura was the opening speaker, and the keynote speech was given by former public protector Thuli Madonsela.Support systems for studentsFormer public protector Thuli Madonsela is the keynote speaker at The Future of Education Summit on 29 November 2017 in Johannesburg. Just with a matric certificate you are four times more likely to be employed, she says. Education is a leveller. “Education improves our logic and rationality. [Also] it often gives us the power to communicate effectively.”Advocate Madonsela said education was a leveller. Had it not been for education, she would have followed in her mother’s footsteps – become a domestic worker and then an informal trader.She also spoke about the support systems students needed, giving by way of example a student whose registration fee of R5,000 was paid by members of his community. He had neither books nor accommodation, and lived in a bathroom for disabled people while studying.While financial support was important, emotional support also needed to be given. While she was studying at Harvard University in the United States, said Madonsela, professors regularly phoned her to ask how she was doing.“What support systems do we bring into this when you bring students to university?” she asked, urging those that gave scholarships “to not have strict criteria for students to pass”. Years ago, a pass would be enough but nowadays students needed a certain percentage to pass when they had a scholarship.Madonsela also encouraged South Africans to find local companies to create and fix their tech hardware, such as computers.Guests tweeted comments from the summit:Advocate @ThuliMadonsela3 says we disempower our children by training them to be seekers of jobs, when we should be equipping them to be creators of jobs. This will ensure continued economic opportunities. #FOESummit2017 #sabcnews pic.twitter.com/MiawglZGrc— Jamaine Krige (@jour_maine) November 29, 2017Education should prepare our youth to be able to solve world problems and not prepare them only for a job. @SPARKSchools #FOESummit2017— Stacey Brewer (@stace_d_brewer) November 29, 2017Education must be adapted to meet the needs of technological advancements which are re-shaping the business landscape.

We must facilitate online learning better.“About 42% of students study through distance education in South Africa.”Access to laptops and data was important for these students, she said. “Reducing the cost of data is one of the issues we have to address with the private sector.”Narsee also said the department was keen to develop open learning resources that would give students access to data.Prof Seth Kunin, deputy vice-chancellor of the International Curtin University, said the way education was delivered was going to change. He spoke about online learning being the future and said: “It won’t be passive, it will be active.”The higher education curriculum should not only be fit for industry, the professor added. “People should be trained to be creative and to be creators of knowledge, to be innovators.”Other panel discussions included “The impact of regulation and policy on higher education” and “The role of the private sector in higher education”.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Here Media Launches Social Content Hub Pridecom

first_img Hebert says the site will be monetized through a combination of native and display advertising options.

Here Media has taken a page out of the Buzzfeed playbook with its new launch, Pride.com. The site, which is live now in beta, features content—listicles, video and short items—created around trending topics and prominent sharing and commenting tools. Time Inc. is using a similar strategy with The Snug, a mobile-first, socially-oriented site for millennial home decor enthusiasts. That was followed up with the launch of MIMI, which uses the same content model for the beauty and fashion market.center_img Pride.com—built with the Livefyre Studio platform which allows it to monitor realtime engagement and publish content that matches social activity—will feature original content. Readers log into the site using their existing social accounts to interact with other readers.

Australia may follow Trump in moving Israel embassy to Jerusalem

first_imgAustralia prime minister Scott Morrison speaks to the media during a press conference at Parliament House in Canberra, Australia, 16 October, 2018. Photo: Reuters Australia is considering moving its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, prime minister Scott Morrison announced Tuesday, following the lead of US president Donald Trump.Morrison called a press conference to say he was “open-minded” to proposals to formally recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move his nation’s embassy to the holy city, a sharp break with the policy of successive Australian governments for decades.“We’re committed to a two-state solution, but frankly it hasn’t been going that well, not a lot of progress has been made, and you don’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results,” Morrison said.He described proposals to recognise Jerusalem and move Australia’s embassy as “sensible” and “persuasive” and would be considered by the government.Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement saying he had discussed the possible embassy move with Morrison.“He informed me that he is considering officially recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel & moving the Australian embassy to Jerusalem. I’m very thankful to him for this,” Netanyahu tweeted.The surprise announcement came just days before a crucial parliamentary by-election in a Sydney district that has a significant Jewish electorate and where the candidate for Morrison’s Liberal party, a former ambassador to Israel, is trailing in opinion polls.A loss in the election would wipe out Morrison’s one-seat majority in parliament.“Scott Morrison is now so desperate to hang on to his job, he is prepared to say anything if he thinks it will win him a few more votes—even at the cost of Australia’s national interest,” said the opposition Labour party foreign policy spokeswoman Penny Wong.Morrison came to power in August after a revolt by hardline conservatives in the Liberal party ousted his more moderate predecessor, Malcolm Turnbull.Turnbull’s government had explicitly distanced itself from the decision by Trump to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as “unhelpful” to the peace process.Morrison rejected suggestions that his decision to consider following Trump’s lead was a result of US pressure or related to the by-election in Sydney’s Wentworth district on Saturday.“I have made this decision without any reference to the United States,” he said. “It has not come up in any discussion that I have had with the president or officials.”Trump’s move ruptured decades of international consensus that Jerusalem’s status should be settled as part of a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.last_img read more
