However, the G-Nome Project does not always get the chance to make it stateside, so when they do, it’s always a treat. This fall, the group is embarking on a tour across the United States, with thirteen dates currently laid out. During this upcoming fall tour, the group will its triumphant return to Chicago, with a special performance at the Tonic Room on Thursday, November 9th. (Purchase tickets here).In an interview with L4LM earlier this year, Salomon describes the burgeoning Israeli music scene and the inherently American roots of jam music: “The Israeli music scene has actually been on an upswing. The indie scene has produced some great bands recently. Trance is huge here. So is Jazz and Pop. Here in Jerusalem, the city sponsors multiple huge pop-up street concerts each month. But that is usually all very mainstream music. I think there’s something inherently American about the jam scene. It’s not only lacking in Israel; it’s pretty much lacking everywhere in the world outside of America (and Canada). This was one of the things that inspired us to create G-Nome.” You can take a listen to the full audio of G-Nome Project’s performance at Nectar’s in Burlington, Vermont, on September 1st, 2015, to get a taste of the magic that’ll be going down in Chicago early next month. Tickets for G-Nome Project’s show at Tonic Room on Thursday, Nov. 7th are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.last_img read more

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

Brendan Bomberry delivers No. 6 Syracuse in an 8-7 overtime thriller at No. 14 Johns Hopkins

first_img Published on March 18, 2017 at 6:28 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 BALTIMORE — After Ben Williams won the faceoff to start overtime, players huddled around the All-American specialist. He put Syracuse in position to win in sudden-death overtime against archrival Johns Hopkins. In the second-lowest scoring Syracuse-Johns Hopkins game since 1985, players welcomed any chance for a score.Sixty-one seconds later, junior midfielder Brendan Bomberry punched the winning score in from just outside the crease. In SU head coach John Desko’s 300th game, the player who hadn’t collected a point ended No. 6 Syracuse’s (5-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) fifth straight one-goal game, 8-7, over No. 14 Johns Hopkins (4-3) on Saturday afternoon at Homewood Field. With a defender on his tail, Bomberry caught a Sergio Salcido pass and, hardly pulling back his stick, pushed the ball past JHU goalie Gerald Logan.“Our guys drew slides and make it easy for me around the net,” Bomberry said. “If they don’t draw slides, I don’t get open.”Through six games, three game-winners by three different players illustrates the balance by which Syracuse’s offense thrives. In the first, a month ago against then-No. 12 Albany, Nick Mariano fired the game-winner with under two seconds on the clock. Against then-No. 9 Virginia two weeks ago, Salcido rifled the final score. On Saturday, Bomberry clinched the game, extending Syracuse’s streak to 45 consecutive wins when holding opponents to fewer than 10 goals.Midway through the season, SU hasn’t established a single go-to option. Jordan Evans has been inconsistent, Saturday included, when he had just one assist for an SU team that has scored fewer than 10 goals in back-to-back games. Yet Syracuse has resorted to a different player to bring magic to the offense late in games. Seven SU players have five goals or more, led by Bomberry’s 13 — none bigger than his last, which Nick Mariano set up with his no-look goal in the final minute of regulation.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAsked whom Hopkins keyed on in the final minutes, Blue Jays head coach Dave Pietramela shook his head. Junior midfielder Hunter Moreland snickered, then smirked as if to acknowledge SU’s diversified attack.“All of our guys can finish and make plays,” Bomberry said. “We have that many guys who can make plays and put the ball in the net for us.”The 56th all-time meeting between Syracuse and Johns Hopkins lacrosse started fitting enough. About 40 minutes before faceoff, a handful of players from both sides met at midfield for a pregame scuffle. Officials handed each side an unsportsmanlike penalty and both teams started a man down.Last year, Syracuse jumped out to a 4-0 lead, outshot JHU by 10 and picked up eight more ground balls. Yet the Orange committed 14 turnovers and blew its four-score lead on a rebound goal in the overtime heart-breaker for its first loss of 2016. The JHU loss started SU’s three-game losing skid.“Homewood,” senior attack Jordan Evans said before the season began, “that’s not a good memory going in there. We have the lead and give it up. It’s a good thing for us to go down there and make a statement.”Bomberry penned that statement in his first college game at Homewood. It buzzed as temperatures sat around 50 degrees. The JHU pep band played during stoppages. A steady hum came from the middle of the Johns Hopkins fan base all afternoon, no louder than in the final minutes of regulation. No quieter than after Bomberry’s blow to the Hopkins faithful.“You saw what happened when we slide too much,” Pietramala said. “The last two goals were off a slide. If you have a miscue on the interior, they find it.”The teams first met in 1921 with a 4-4 tie. Fifty-five meetings and nearly a century later, the units remain at the top of the sport. They’ve met each year since 1980. They’ve combined for 19 NCAA titles. For decades, Syracuse and Johns Hopkins have been the landing spots for the nation’s most prized recruits.Three of Syracuse’s 25 victories against Johns Hopkins have come with the national championship on the line. A single goal has now decided 14 of the last 29 meetings. In the most recent edition of college lacrosse’s most storied, intense rivalry, goals came at a premium. Syracuse held leads of 4-2, 5-4 and 6-4. Still, in a game during which no lead was safe, JHU inevitably fought back to pull within one. Then tie. Then take the lead, 7-6, before Mariano’s game-tying shot.This time, the Orange came out on top with the sight of Bomberry emerging from the crease, stick held high.
