Japanese Firms Take New Interest in Offshore Wind

Japanese Firms Take New Interest in Offshore Wind

first_imgJapanese Firms Take New Interest in Offshore Wind FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:Untapped offshore wind is luring Japan’s biggest commodity houses to invest in projects in Taiwan and at home, buoyed by favorable government policies that support development of the clean power.Mitsui & Co. this month bought a stake in the Taiwanese wind developer Yushan Energy Co. that gives the Tokyo-based company a 20 percent stake in a 300-megawatt offshore project that may cost $1.8 billion to develop. Mitsubishi Corp. is working with partners to build a separate windmill venture off Taiwan’s coast and Marubeni Corp. is developing two offshore projects in the northern Japanese prefecture of Akita.Buffeted by strong breezes in the Taiwan Strait, the island has emerged as a hot spot for clean power projects as President Tsai Ing-Wen works to phase out nuclear energy while adding 25 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2025. The island is seeking to boost offshore wind capacity to 5.5 gigawatts over the same timeframe, from just 8 megawatts.Globally, there are about 18 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity and Europe accounts for more than 80 percent of that, with the rest mostly in Asia, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Asia will add 3.5 gigawatts of offshore wind capacity in 2030, more than double the 1.5 gigawatts to be added in Europe the same year, according to estimates in a December report from BNEF.Mitsubishi, which will start construction of a 950-megawatt wind project off the U.K. coast with partners this year, aims to double its renewable output so that it accounts for about 20 percent of its total power production by 2030. Offshore wind will play an important role in that expansion, according to Yusuke Takeuchi, who heads a power business development team at Mitsubishi.More: ‘Dawn’ of Asia Offshore Wind Boom Lures Japanese Trading Houseslast_img read more

Daniel Sturridge’s dog was stolen during a robbery: ‘I’ll pay you anything’

first_imgThis is himA post shared by Daniel Sturridge – Dstudge (@danielsturridge) on Jul 9, 2019 at 2:51am PDTHe started the 2018-19 campaign brightly, finding the net with his first touch after coming on as a substitute in a 4-0 win over West Ham United on August 12. And, in a number of videos posted on Instagram, Sturridge shows how his house in LA was broken into, with a glass door having been smashed and his dog, plus several bags, having been removed.In a series of follow-up video pleas, Sturridge offers $30,000-plus for the return of his pet, saying: “Listen, somebody has broken into the house in LA, took my dog, from the house. Listen, whoever knows who broke into my crib, I’ll pay you anything.”Are you crazy? You come into someone’s house to take a dog?”Whoever brings my dog back, 20 grand straight up. Straight up. 20 Gs. 30 Gs. Whatever. Bring my dog back to this house, I’m moving out of this b— h anyway. I don’t give a s— about this place. Bring the dog back to this address, I’ll be moving out tomorrow or the next day.”I want my dog back and I’ll pay whatever. It doesn’t matter the cost. Bring my dog back. 20, 30 grand whatever it costs. You aren’t going to get more than that anyway, and if you are let me know and I’ll pay more than them. I want my dog back. Weeks later, he scored his 50th Premier League goal against former side Chelsea – the equaliser in a 1-1 draw that was voted as Goal of the Month for September.Yet, as 2019 came around, he would play just nine minutes of football for Liverpool, and would become the first Englishman to have collected two Champions League winners’ medals with different clubs despite not playing a single minute in the 2-0 win over Tottenham.Sturridge, who made a total of 160 appearances for the Merseysiders and scored 67 times, is seemingly keen to continue playing and is now available as a free agent. Somebody stole my dog. I’ll pay anything. I want him back.A post shared by Daniel Sturridge – Dstudge (@danielsturridge) on Jul 9, 2019 at 1:38am PDT”It’s a Monday. We was at the house at 11:30, we’d been away for two hours. So it doesn’t make any sense. Someone find my dog please, like I said before I’ll pay anything. It’s not about the money, I just want my dog simple as that.”Sturridge suffered a string of injuries that ultimately led to the Merseyside club letting him go after having joined from Chelsea back in January 2013.
