first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Washington Examiner:India’s lack of water will drive the need for solar and wind energy more than concerns over climate change will, according to a report released Tuesday.More than 80 percent of the subcontinent’s electricity comes from power plants that require freshwater cooling, which presents a problem since a lack of water was the prime culprit for some power plants shutting down over the last five years, according to the World Resources Institute, a nonpartisan environmental think tank in Washington.The plants include both coal and nuclear generators, called thermal plants because of the heat they produce to make electricity. “Thermal power plants have been forced to shut down due to inaccessibility of cooling water, losing tens of terawatt-hours of electricity generation in recent years,” the report said.The report is the first comprehensive study of how access to water is affecting India’s energy needs. India lost about 14 terawatt-hours of power generation because of water shortages in 2016, which canceled out “more than 20 percent of growth in the country’s total electricity generation from 2015,” according to the report.The scenario will only grow worse as India’s economy grows and the demand for fossil fuels and nuclear power increase, putting utilities and industries in a fight for water. One of the ways for India to avoid the increased water scarcity is to meet its aggressive goals for building photovoltaic solar panels and wind turbines, the report recommends to the Indian government.“Water consumption from India’s thermal power generation rose steadily every year between 2011 and 2016 but would stay below its 2016 level by 2027 if the country’s most ambitious renewable goals are successfully achieved,” the report stated.More: Green Energy Can Help Solve India’s Water Woes Green Energy Can Help Solve India’s Water Woeslast_img read more

first_imgPortugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo is banking on Brazilian support for his country at the World Cup, where he says they are in the toughest of the eight groups.”To compete in the World Cup in a brother country like Brazil is appealing,” the world player of the year wrote in a blog for the Sportlobster website.”Portugal and Brazil have historical connections and both countries speak the same language.”Therefore, I think it will be a fantastic experience and I believe Brazilians will also support us.”The Real Madrid forward has been suffering from tendonitis as well as a thigh problem and is unlikely to feature when Portugal face the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday.Portugal badly need him fit for their key opening game against Germany in Salvador on 16 June. The other group opponents are Ghana and the United States.”I continue to shiver, as soon as I hear the Portuguese anthem” – Cristiano Ronaldo”In my opinion, we have the strongest group of the World Cup, but we should take it one step at a time,” Ronaldo said.”Our goal is obviously to pass the group stage and then we’ll see.”We arrived in Brazil with hope, but we will also make sure our feet stay firmly on the ground.” After winning the Champions League final with Real last month, Ronaldo is desperate to secure a first major trophy for his country, who unexpectedly lost the 2004 European Championship final in Lisbon to Greece.”It is with enormous pride to represent and captain the Portuguese national team,” he added.”It fills me with pride, satisfaction, pleasure and honour, but it is also a big responsibility.”It is the country, which is at stake and we understand an entire nation – composed of ten million Portuguese and those living abroad – have their eyes fixed on us.”I confess there are feelings which don’t change much as the years roll. I continue to shiver, as soon as I hear the Portuguese anthem.”last_img read more

first_imgWuhan is already in China. “My team traveled two weeks ago to Shenzhen, near Hong Kong, because they could not go directly to Wuhan.. They were confined to a hotel because everyone who comes from another part of the world has to be locked up in a hotel room provided by the government for two weeks, “says the Portuguese.In Portugal, the measures are not as extreme as in Spain. “It has all started later, it has been possible to learn from countries like Italy and Spain. That is why they have started the state of alarm before there. They don’t force us to be at home, but people are afraid and stay. Even if there is no police or you don’t see the army, you know that going to the street is only for an obligation. We have to comply so that this can be solved soon. “Finally, Carriço launched a message of affection. “I want to send a hug and a message of encouragement at this difficult time, in which we are confined at home. I ask people to stay calm and try to do some sports to take care of their health and be prepared. Everything will end in no time and we will return to normalcy so that football returns. “ Daniel ‘Ulises’ Carriço continues to tour the world before joining the Chinese Wuhan discipline, for which he signed a few weeks ago to leave Sevilla and with whom he trained first in Sotogrande and then in Marbella. The Portuguese explained on the radio of the Nervion club the odyssey that he is living, right now in his hometown, Lisbon: “I did not have a visa, I had to urgently come to Lisbon to get it and they have not given it to me yet. In the end there is a general concern and nobody knows what will happen, if a loved one can be infected, we all want to be close to the family in this situation. ““We are doing the procedures to go to China and I will have to go through that period of quarantine to then train with my colleagues. There is no date for the start of the league, there is talk of the beginning of May, but they are very scared with the cases of Europe. Its president has almost closed the country for fear that the virus will evolve again and thus prevent further cases, “said Carriço.last_img read more
