Arizona utility APS to rely on battery storage, solar to enable 2031 exit from coal generation

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):After a temporary pause in its purchase of battery storage systems following an April 2019 explosion at one of its early projects, Arizona Public Service Co. plans to add at least 2,500 MW of energy storage capacity in the next decade and as much as 10,550 MW by 2035.The initial fleet will include 750 MW of stand-alone storage and solar-plus-storage plants by the end of 2024 followed by an additional 1,750 MW by 2030. That capacity “will provide the backbone of replacement capacity and energy as we look to exit coal completely by 2031,” the Pinnacle West Capital Corp. utility subsidiary said in its 2020 Integrated Resource Plan filed June 26.The plan is a blueprint for how Arizona Public Service, or APS, intends to plug resource gaps as roughly 1,400 MW of coal capacity retire and another 1,600 MW of natural gas contracts expire over the next 10 years and to position itself to deliver 100% carbon-free electricity by midcentury.“Our plan overall is premised on the ability to safely and economically deploy large amounts of energy storage so that we can provide as much of the needed capacity as possible through a combination of renewable resources and storage,” APS said in its resource plan. While the utility has installed only 7.2 MW of storage since 2017, it said, “[W]e believe it is likely feasible and reasonable to reflect in our plans.”Through 2024, Arizona’s largest utility proposes to add 962 MW of large-scale renewable generation, 750 MW of energy storage, 575 MW of demand-side management, 408 MW of distributed energy, 193 MW of demand response, 6 MW of microgrid capacity and no new gas. After that, three pathways to 2035 pivot largely on different mixes of renewable energy, energy storage and new gas generation plants that will be capable of running partially on hydrogen and which could eventually be converted to run on all carbon-free hydrogen.A so-called bridge portfolio would reach 79% zero-carbon power by 2035, fueled by additions of 6,450 MW of renewable energy, 4,850 MW of energy storage and 1,859 MW of new gas plants or purchases from existing merchant gas plants. A more aggressive “accelerate portfolio” is designed to hit 91% carbon-free electricity by 2035, relying on 10,375 MW of new renewable energy, 10,550 MW of additional energy storage and no new gas purchases. A middle path, called the “shift” portfolio and reaching 84% clean energy by 2035, would include 7,950 MW of new renewables, 6,500 MW of energy storage and 1,135 MW of hydrogen-capable gas turbines.[Garrett Hering]More ($): Arizona Public Service sees energy storage as ‘backbone’ of coal exit Arizona utility APS to rely on battery storage, solar to enable 2031 exit from coal generationlast_img read more

Nankivil’s 3-pointers not enough at Purdue

first_imgUW guard Jordan Taylor and the Badgers weren\’t able to score on their last possession, losing a 60-57 game at Mackey Arena.[/media-credit]WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — It took a while Thursday night for the Boilermakers to heat up.Once they did, however, there seemed to be little chance Wisconsin could come back against Purdue. Until junior forward Keaton Nankivil hit a hot streak of his own.YetAs the Badgers’ troubles at Mackey Arena continued, and they lost 60-57 to the Boilermakers, who were led by a 20-point performance by junior guard E’Twaun Moore.Fittingly, with the game on the line, it was Moore who hit a game-winning floater in the lane with 25.2 seconds remaining to put Purdue on top 58-57. The Boilermakers had run the play several times already on the night, and a good read by Moore got Purdue the bucket and the game.“I just had to read JaJuan’s defender,” Moore said. “If he helped up, pass it to JaJuan (Johnson), if Rob (Hummel)’s man helped up-kick it. It just so happened that JaJuan’s man helped up, and I just made a shot.”But as head coach Bo Ryan pointed out after the game, the Badgers still had a chance.With 25.2 seconds to go, senior guard Trevon Hughes took the ball for Wisconsin’s final shot and fired from behind the arc with less than 10 seconds remaining. Unfortunately for UW, though, that shot was not close, as Hughes elbow was struck on the shot and a foul was not called.Hughes and Wisconsin caught a break just seconds later, however, when his air ball went out of bounds off a Purdue defender, giving the Badgers six seconds to score.“You’ve just got to play through it; he had a chance,” Ryan said of Hughes. “He wanted to make his free throws, too. Sometimes you don’t get to do what you’d like to do.”On the next UW possession, following a timeout, Hughes took the ball again.He penetrated as deep as he could and put the ball high off the glass. It was the type of shot Hughes has hit many times before, even in late-game situations. Thursday night, however, the senior from Queens, N.Y., put it up too hard and it bounced off the rim to Purdue.Hughes’ miss sealed the Badgers’ fate, dropping UW to 2-36 all-time at Mackey Arena.“We gave ourselves an opportunity to steal one on the road and we didn’t walk away with it,” Hughes said. “It is hard, you know, missing the last shot. They had faith in me to put the ball in my hands and I didn’t come out with it. But I promise you next time we’re in that predicament, I will.”With the way the game went in the first half, it seemed inevitable it would come down to whichever team had the ball last. Wisconsin and Purdue were tied six times before halftime and the lead changed hands four times.Neither team led by more than four in the opening period, and Purdue went to the locker room with a 27-25 lead.In that first half, Nankivil led all scorers with 11 points on 4-of-8 from the floor and 3-for-4 from beyond the arc. With the way the Badgers’ guards dominated the Boilermakers on Jan. 9, in Madison, Purdue upped its pressure on Hughes and sophomore Jordan Taylor, which left Nankivil open several times on the perimeter.“We knew how they were going to play the ball screens a little more aggressively,” Nankivil said. “Almost doubled Pop (Hughes) and Jordan at times and they weren’t laying off J-Bo (Jason Bohannon) at all.“Up to this point, I haven’t really proven myself to be able to shoot, so their game plan was, you know, let a center shoot. Today just happened to be a good day I guess.”Early in the second half, it looked like the Badgers might run away with it, jumping out to a 7-point lead with 13:01 remaining to play. Over the same stretch, the Boilermakers had scored only four points. But after a big defensive rebound by Moore with under 12 minutes to play, sophomore guard John Hart grabbed one of his own on the offensive glass and put the ball back in, cutting the lead to five points and igniting the crowd of 14,123.Purdue stayed hot, going on a 10-2 run to make it 48-40, and put Wisconsin in a big hole with 6:47 to play.Nankivil answered for Wisconsin, however, hitting three times from long distance to give UW the 1-point lead with 42 seconds remaining. He finished the night with a career-high 25 points.Unfortunately for the Badgers, they were not able to hang on.“We were right there, fought back and had the lead with 20, 30 seconds left,” Taylor said. “We couldn’t get that one stop and we couldn’t hit the shot on the other end, but sometimes that’s just the way the ball bounces.”last_img read more

Lamolinara plays into 2nd half for first time this season, lets up 16 of 17 goals in loss

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 2, 2014 at 1:03 am Contact Josh: CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Dominic Lamolinara has started the first half of every game this season, and Bobby Wardwell has started the second half.But on Saturday night against Virginia, Syracuse changed its strategy and Lamolinara was in between the pipes for all but 27 seconds.The No. 6 Orange (2-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) fell to the No. 4 Cavaliers (6-0, 1-0), 17-12, in front of 5,102 fans at Klockner Stadium in Charlottesville, Va. And for the first time this season, Lamolinara played almost the entire game.The senior made 14 saves on 55 shots, but UVA’s James Pannell found the back of the net seven times and the Cavaliers scored 17 goals — 16 on Lamolinara.SU head coach John Desko said it wasn’t a predetermined decision to play his veteran the entire way. But with the 39-degree weather and Syracuse a man-down coming out of halftime, he decided not to switch goalkeepers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We stayed with Dom, and I thought Dom played very well,” Desko said. “I think we had 14 saves to their five saves, which probably kept us in the game for a while.”Lamolinara had an up-and-down performance.There were possessions he played well in, like when he saved shots by Cavaliers attacks Mark Cockerton and Owen Van Arsdale on the doorstep. But just as Maryland did last weekend at the Carrier Dome, Virginia exploited Lamolinara on shots close to the ground, which Pannell said was part of Virginia’s game plan.“I would much rather have made 12 saves and given up five fewer goals,” Lamolinara said.Virginia shot early and often in its first few possessions. Pannell and Chris LaPierre both threw shots wide right of the cage. The three shots that were on net Lamolinara saved, and the Orange took an early 3-0 lead.But the Cavaliers erratic shooting left Lamolinara off kilter. And when Cavaliers faceoff specialist Mick Parks started to win faceoff after faceoff, the shots came faster and faster.Pannell spun off Syracuse defender Sean Young and fired a shot by Lamolinara, extending UVA’s lead to 6-3 — finishing a streak of six straight UVA goals. After the goal, Lamolinara talked briefly with defenders Brandon Mullins and Jay McDermott, and Young came over as well before the Orange called timeout.On Virginia’s last possession of the half, Lamolinara made a save on the doorstep to turn away Cockerton, keeping the Orange within reach at 13-10.He finished the half with three saves in each of the first two quarters.“I thought Dom played great,” Syracuse midfielder Scott Loy said. “They had close to 60 shots. What more can you do? Anytime a team has 60 shots, it’s tough to keep them off the board.”Coming out of the break, Lamolinara made two saves on Virginia’s opening possession. The Orange trailed by two in the third, and eventually evened the score at 9-9.With Virginia leading 13-10, Lamolinara made a save up high on Virginia attack Zed Williams. But Lamolinara lost sight of the rebound and turned around to see if the ball went in the net. It didn’t, but Pannell picked up the loose ball then tapped it in.Lamolinara smacked his stick on the ground and clenched his fists in disappointment.After his goal, Pannell had a message for the freshman Williams.Shoot low.Minutes later, with the Cavaliers leading 14-12, Williams listened. He put a shot into the bottom right of the cage underneath Lamolinara for the first goal of his career.With Parks winning 13-of-15 second-half faceoffs, Syracuse didn’t have the ball enough to stage a comeback. Pannell and Cockerton iced the game in the final five minutes with each of their 22nd goals of the season — both flying past the senior and into the back of his cage.Said Lamolinara: “This one’s on me tonight.” Commentslast_img read more
