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

Nwosu looks to improve draft stock in Senior Bowl

first_imgThis week, former USC outside linebacker Uchenna Nwosu began preparation for the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., in an annual showcase of college football talent. He currently projects to be a late-first to second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. In his senior season, Uchenna Nwosu recorded a career-high 9.5 sacks. He is projected to be a first-or second-round pick. Daily Trojan file photo.The 6-foot-2, 240-pound edge rusher finished with 75 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 13 pass deflections in 2017. For his efforts, he earned first-team All Pac-12 honors. On his career, the Carson, Calif. native recorded 169 tackles with 20.5 tackles for loss. He capped off his career with a twosack, four-tackle performance against Ohio State the Cotton Bowl. Nwosu has the opportunity to improve upon his draft stock with an eye-opening performance in the Senior Bowl. He will play against the likes of 2017 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Baker Mayfield, and former Washington State quarterback Luke Falk (whom he intercepted this year). USA Today’s “Draft Wire,” calls Nwosu an, “undersized but explosive and productive edge player,” who has made, “huge strides over the past two seasons, turning himself into one of the most intriguing defensive prospects in this draft.” NFLDraftScout.com ranks Nwosu as the fourth-best outside linebacker in the 2018 draft class. Nwosu is the lone player to represent USC in the Senior Bowl this year. Previous Trojans who were featured in the game include Clay Matthews, Carson Palmer and Lynn Swann. He will be a participant on the “South Team,” which is set to be coached by the Houston Texans staff. The “North Team,” will be coached by the Denver Broncos’ staff.This year’s Senior Bowl takes place Saturday at 11:30 a.m. The game will be broadcast on NFL Network with ongoing practice coverage throughout the week on ESPNU.last_img read more
