Public-Sector Energy Champions Win Over $24 Million in Prizes

first_img Seven public-sector entities have won over $24 million in prizes in the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ)/Government of Jamaica (GOJ) Energy Champion Competition. Maggoty High has the honour of being the first school to win division four, which is a new category designated for educational institutions.Each category winner received a $5-million Solar Photovoltaic System, which will be installed at their locations.The Ministry of Transport and Mining, National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) and Priory Primary School, which were runners-up in divisions two, three and four respectively, were rewarded with energy-efficient equipment valued at $1.5 million.The Energy Champion Competition includes an individual component, which saw nine persons claiming first-, second- and third-place prizes valued at $60,000, $40,000 and $30,000 respectively, between October 2018 and January 2019.This was achieved after sharing their energy efficiency and conservation tips on social media.Additionally, 10 public-sector employees won prizes in sponsored radio shows bringing the total number of individual Energy Champions up to 19 winners across the island.Science, Energy and Technology Minister, Hon. Fayval Williams, in her remarks at the awards ceremony, said that the EECP has assisted in reducing national oil consumption by 3,500 barrels, helping to save approximately US$2.2 million since 2013.She noted that the energy competition, since its launch in 2017, “has been met with great enthusiasm and support at all levels, from decision-makers who have to pay the energy bills, to the workers and supervisors who implement conservation measures during their day-to-day operations”.Minister Williams encouraged all ministries, departments and agencies to “get on board by assessing your energy use and implement strategies to cut your energy expenses”.Project Manager, EECP, Jody Grizzle, who gave an overview of the programme, said the objective is to realise energy savings by reducing electricity consumption in government-owned buildings.“We carry out interventions, which will improve energy efficiency, and we target largely the building envelope, cool roof solutions, solar control film and energy efficient air-conditioning systems,” she informed.Ms. Grizzle further noted that the training of staff is an important aspect of the initiative.“It is not enough to just install new equipment. Capital investments like these go hand-in-hand with increasing the knowledge of people who use them daily, so they understand how it functions, how to maximise operations and maintain performance,” she added.The EECP aims to promote cost-saving measures in the public sector through the design and implementation of energy efficiency and energy conservation interventions and equipment.Over 300 employees from more than 48 entities have benefited from training, with the aim of encouraging efficient and sustainable energy use through conservation measures and behaviour change. The annual competition, which is part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programme (EECP) being implemented by the PCJ, aims to increase awareness and build capacity in implementing energy-efficiency measures at government entities.

NHL Seeks Formal Proposal From Players Union

The NHL, after two hours of negotiations with the players association, requested a formal proposal from the union.The bargaining session — the first formal face-to-face meeting between the two sides in over a week — lasted less than two hours and covered key topics such as player contracting rights and core economics.NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league wants to see a proposal from the NHLPA on these topics, among others, and feels they haven’t seen that yet in the negotiation process.“We had hoped to engage them in a discussion about the players contracting issues that are so important to the players,” Fehr said. “At least tonight, they were unwilling to do that.”The league, however, views both the core economics — such as the division of revenue — and player contracting issues as linked. Daly said the league pushed the union on their stance on the economics and did not receive any clarity.“We’ve never heard a full proposal from them. We’ve heard their proposal on economics — they’re still suggesting that they’re moving in our direction on economics,” Daly said. “Until we know exactly where they stand on economics … we think it’s all tied together. We’d like to hear it all together.”Daly affirmed the league’s interest in seeing the NHLPA make an offer that is linked to revenue growth, as opposed to a guaranteed player amount. The NHLPA’s last offer proposed that players receive $1.883 billion (equivalent to the amount they took in last year) with 1.75 percent interest in Year 1, although it is believed that the league would like to see the division of revenue accounted for on a pure percentage basis.“If their proposal continues to be a guaranteed player amount, sitting here on Nov. 19, that’s not a proposal that would … ever be acceptable to us,” Daly said. “If that happens to be where we are, we will be a long way apart.”“It’s our position (that) we’ve made a couple comprehensive proposals in a row. We’d like to know where they are on all the issues and we asked them to think about putting together a comprehensive proposal for us to consider,” Daly said.NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr declined to address the details of the core economics discussion. Fehr said he’d go back to the NHLPA offices, consult with his membership on the evening’s meeting, and confer with the league Tuesday morning.Multiple sources confirmed that the two sides might not meet again until Wednesday. It is believed the union wants to take time to work on putting together a new proposal.Fehr said the union addressed player contracting rights — a contentious point in negotiations as both sides have dug in on the issue — but to no avail. read more

I am confident we will play a great game tomorrow and that Juve will have a hard time against us.”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“We have to be humble and respect our opponents who are stronger than us. We must play as a team. There’s a lot at stake and we are not allowed any false step.”“We have prepared two or three different tactical solutions based on how Juve will play. They have a winning mentality, fear nothing and are used to playing these games. They won’t be thinking about the UEFA Champions League match against Real Madrid.”“Conti is now in the USA and we still don’t know whether he needs to undergo a small procedure. He is a great asset for our team and for the club. His teammates and I will all be here waiting for him.”“If we manage to do well in both the offensive and the defensive phase, we can do well against Juve. If we try to defend only, then it’s going to be tough,” he said according to calciomercato.com.last_img read more

Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“It’s the same with this Liverpool team. You admire the goals and creativity but can overlook the intensity they play with when they don’t have the ball. If they can keep it going, whoever finishes in front of them this season will win the league.“The front three put the ball under pressure every minute. They nick the ball high up the pitch, they hunt in packs and they all know what they are doing.“They are all a goal threat but in this game they showed another side and worked their socks off. You can say Tottenham didn’t play well but a fundamental reason for that is they weren’t given any time and space to play.”last_img read more
