Yingli Solar announces 1 MW of accumulative solar shipments to JordanAs Jordan aims for 600 MW of installed solar capacity by 2020, Yingli Solar are well positioned to improve on their 20% market share in the country. November 19, 2013 Ian Clover Legal Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share The worlds largest vertically integrated PV module manufacturer, Chinas Yingli Solar, has reached 20% market share of Jordans blossoming solar industry with this weeks news that the company has now shipped more than 1 MW of PV modules to the country. The Kingdom of Jordan has set an ambitious target of 600 MW in installed solar capacity for 2020, with Yingli Solar one of the early movers in a market that, like many of its Middle East neighbors, is filled with untapped potential. “We are delighted to develop strong partnerships with Jordans leading solar energy companies and have shipped more than 1 MW of PV modules to this new market in a short period of less than one year,” siad Yingli Solar CEO and chairman, Liansheng Miao. “The Middle East has a huge potential for solar adoption because of its abundant sunlight resource, and we are aiming to achieve more development opportunities in this region through our advanced technology, high quality products, strong brand recognition and professional experience in manufacturing and marketing.” Jordans Master Strategy of Energy Sector set the 600 MW target in 2007, and has since updated the nations energy law to allow investors to develop grid-connected electricity through new renewable energies, including solar.Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

As one does when your star sponsored rider is about to win another Grand Tour, Fausto Pinarello flew to Madrid on September 9th to deliver a special bike in person to Chris Froome for the final stage of La Vuelta a España 2017. The one-off Dogma F10 in the Spanish flag’s red and yellow was meant to congratulate Froomie for his double Tour-Vuelta 2017 wins, not coincidentally mixing the color of the leader’s jerseys of the two Grand Tours.Apparently, Pinarello got a lot of positive feedback for the bike’s graphics, so they are adding it to the options for the F10 in 2018 as a limited edition to join the Tour winning yellow bike…and a special F100 to celebrate 100 years of the Giro (even though Sky only got one rider in the top 20 at the Italian tour.) The Dogma F10 King of Spain can be ordered as of today, with first customer deliveries heading out in late November 2017.It is actually available in three versions, one complete Froome replica with full Sky team logos and Froomie’s Rhino logo on the headtube…one Team Sky version that drops the rhino…and a replica that keeps only the red design with white detailing, instead of any yellow, Sky, or Froome accents.The bike is the same asymmetric aero carbon F10 updated at the start of this year, with a max 25mm tire clearance. The special King of Spain edition is available as a frameset only in the full eleven size range from 44-62cm.Pinarello.com
View Comments Show Closed This production ended its run on Aug. 25, 2018 At the age of 22, Charlie Stemp had the kind of breakout role that young actors dream of when he headlined the 2016 West End revival of Half a Sixpence, rising to the top ranks of in-demand British actors. The buzz for this young charmer hopped the pond, and producers of Broadway’s hit Hello, Dolly! soon came knocking, offering Stemp the role of shop clerk Barnaby Tucker. Soon, Stemp was joining a new batch of stars for the show alongside Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber. Just weeks into his run, Stemp talks with Broadway.com about how a monkey made him want to dance and how Broadway audiences have made him feel welcome.SPORTING LIFEStemp was born and raised in Peckham, London, just five miles from the famed West End theater district. As a young student, he found physical activities easier than academics. “I had far too much energy,” he says. “I always struggled with math and English, but I would do every sport under the sun: judo, rugby…and I started dancing when I was about 12.” Although initially resistant, something clicked after six months of lessons and Stemp found his love of dance.MONKEY DREAMSAt the age of 13, Stemp found himself in Apollo Victoria Theatre experiencing the mega-musical Wicked, a profound experience for the young Brit. “I remember thinking, ‘I want to do this; this is fun,'” he says. “But it was the monkeys that fascinated me the most.” He wondered how an actor threw himself into the role of one of Elphaba’s winged monkeys and when he was 19, was able to find out for himself, when he was cast in the show’s ensemble. “I loved the physicality of it,” he says, “and the beating of the chest and the testosterone of being this big monkey and throwing stuff at the audience. It was great!” SHINING STARSA nice perk of his Broadway gig is meeting some of his idols. His first school role was playing Lieutenant Frank Cioffi in the Kander and Ebb musical Curtains, a part that won original Dolly! star David Hyde Pierce a Tony Award—a fact that Stemp did not share with the well-loved actor when they met at the Shubert. “I didn’t want to be that guy that goes, ‘I played you in a part once!’ So, I kind of just sat there, but goodness me, he’s such a sweet man.” He says new leading lady Bernadette Peters is also a charmer. “On our first night, she came upstairs-two flights of stairs—just to say hello to everyone before the show,” he remembers. “That just means so much. With everything that must be going through her head, she took the time to make sure we all knew she was there for us. That is the epitome of a leading lady, of an absolute star.”CHEER FACTORAlthough he’s used to getting standing O’s in the West End, Stemp says Broadway audiences are even more eager to send love across the footlights. “It’s strange how here on Broadway, they cheer you before you do anything!” he laughs, referring to entrance applause. “We don’t do that back in the West End—we tend to wait until someone has proven themselves to cheer them. But it’s lovely because you feel the support from the moment you enter the stage.” Although he has dream roles (anything Dick Van Dyke has done, really), Stemp is happy to roll with his career as it comes after Dolly: “As long as I’m happy, I’ll take whatever comes my way.” Charlie Stemp photographed by Caitlin McNaney Related Shows Star Files Hello, Dolly! Charlie Stemp STEPPING OUTStemp’s became a bit of an overnight sensation for U.K. theater fans when he took on the leading role of Arthur Kipps in the Chichester Festival Theatre production of the British musical Half a Sixpence. After rave reviews rolled in for the show, and especially Stemp’s vibrant performance, Sixpence moved to the West End, earning the young star an Oliver Award nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. Stemp was onstage for the most of the show, and his personal life suffered for the commitment to his craft: “For a whole year, I didn’t drink! I went to bed every night at 11 o’clock. In fact, I had a car home after the show, and I’d fall asleep in the car because I was exhausted.” Now that Stemp has taken on the less taxing featured role of Barnaby Tucker in Hello, Dolly!, he jokes, “it’s drinks all around!”BECOMING BARNABYThe Broadway newcomer is still amazed that he didn’t have to audition to replace Taylor Trensch as Barnaby in the smash hit revival of Dolly. “It was wonderful,” he says. “But also very scary because when you get something after auditioning, you feel you earned it.” When Stemp came to New York City to see the production after getting cast, he was even more daunted by the high-profile task at hand. “Taylor is an absolutely wonderful, beautiful guy and he was doing this hilarious character. I was thinking, ‘Oh, that’s tough to beat.'” Now that’s he’s settled into the role, Stemp says things seem to be going well. “I’ve not upset anyone, which is good,” he laughs.

Vermont Business Magazine The Vermont Attorney General’s Office and the Vermont Human Rights Commission issued Guidance(link is external) on gender-based pricing, which is the practice of charging different prices for goods or services based on the consumer’s gender. Gender-based pricing occurs right here in Vermont – from services such as haircuts and dry cleaning to goods such as personal hygiene products and children’s toys.According to Attorney General Sorrell, “many Vermont businesses may not realize that they are engaging in illegal gender-based pricing, and many Vermonter consumers may not realize that they have been subjected to the unfair practice. We have produced the Guide to raise awareness and help eliminate all gender-based pricing in Vermont.”A 2015 study(link is external) produced by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs found that similar products were priced the same for women and men only 40% of the time, women’s products carried higher price tags 42% of the time, and men’s carried higher price tags 18% of the time. The 2015 study referenced an earlier study which found that women pay a “gender tax” of approximately $2,191 more than men each year as a result of gender-based pricing.Gender-based pricing violates Vermont’s Public Accommodations Act, which prohibits a place of public accommodation from treating people unequally based on, among other things, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The Human Rights Commission is charged with enforcing the Public Accommodations Act. Executive Director Karen Richards said: “As a nation, more than 50 years after passage of the Equal Pay Act, we still have not reached pay equity for men and women. Here in Vermont, women make approximately 85 cents for every dollar earned by a man, are over-represented in lower paying jobs and under-represented in higher paying jobs. This ‘gender tax’ on goods and services exacerbates the pay inequity and further erodes the ability of women, particularly single women, to adequately support their families.”Additionally, gender-based pricing violates Vermont’s Consumer Protection Act, which prohibits unfair or deceptive acts or practices in commerce. Attorney General Sorrell, whose office is charged with enforcing the Consumer Protection Act, said: “As the State’s primary enforcer of the Consumer Protection Act, I want to make it clear that gender-based pricing is an unfair practice in commerce. The Guide provides businesses with practical information on gender-based pricing and tips for eliminating the practice from existing pricing schemes.”The Guide also offers information for consumers on what to do if they encounter gender-based pricing. Among other options, consumers are encouraged to file a Complaint(link is external) with the Human Rights Commission. The Human Rights Commission will share all complaints with the Attorney General’s Office.The Guide is available on the Attorney General’s website(link is external).

French Top 14 clubs could boycott next season’s European Champions Cup if they are stopped from having eight sides in the competition, newspaper Midi Olympique reported on Monday. The league wants an increase from the usual six outfits in the top-tier continental competition so record 20-time French champions Toulouse, who were seventh in the table when the Top 14 was declared over in April, and Montpellier who were eighth, can feature in it. The EPCR, who run both the Champions Cup and second-tier Challenge Cup, are considering reform for next season due to issues regarding the coronavirus pandemic.Options include increasing the main tournament from 18 to 24 teams, which is the preferred solution for French sides, but the English Premiership and the Pro14 also have unresolved problems with both leagues postponed. “We have particularly attractive formats available to us to do it. We will adapt in the common interest,” EPCR president Vincent Gaillard told the paper. This term’s Champions Cup has been put on hold at the quarter-final stage due to COVID-19.
