Spain’s Iberdrola completes largest solar project in Europe

first_imgSpain’s Iberdrola completes largest solar project in Europe FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:Spanish renewable power giant Iberdrola has completed work on what it claims is the largest solar project ever built in Europe.The 500-megawatt Núñez de Balboa facility is now undergoing testing with Spanish grid operator Red Eléctrica de España (REE) and is expected to be in full commercial operation this quarter.Europe’s previous largest project was the 300-megawatt Cestas, built by Neoen in the south of France. But the latest record might not stand for long with Iberdrola planning the 590-megawatt Francisco Pizarro project in Spain. Completion is expected in 2022.Iberdrola, among the world’s largest wind generators, has a series of power-purchase agreements (PPAs) in place for Núñez de Balboa. These include a 10-year deal with Kutxabank to power its operations. Telecommunications firm Euskaltel and the Uvesco supermarket chain are also signed up.Iberdrola is planning to install 3,000 megawatts of solar capacity in Spain by 2022 and a total of 10 gigawatts of renewables by 2030. The company is active in a variety of renewable markets around the world, including the U.S., where it is among the country’s largest wind operators through its Avangrid subsidiary.Total solar installations in Europe doubled in 2019 compared to the previous year, with further growth anticipated, according to research by SolarPower Europe. In the trade group’s most optimistic scenario, 2019’s tally of 16.7 gigawatts could double to 35 gigawatts in 2022.[John Parnell]More: Iberdrola completes Europe’s largest solar plant (and yes, it’s subsidy-free)last_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse to beat Virginia Tech

first_imgPhil D’Abbraccio (17-4): Syracuse 71, Virginia Tech 61No more freebiesVirginia Tech still strokes it well from 3-point range — to the tune of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s third-best percentage — so its success from deep against SU the first time was no fluke. But the only reason the Hokies were a buzzer-beating 3 away from topping the Orange was because SU missed 10 second-half free throws. With the exception of Syracuse’s loss to Miami, SU’s been better than that from the charity stripe. No breakdown from that spot this time around will outweigh the fits Rakeem Christmas and Co. are going to cause for VT.Jesse Dougherty (17-4): Syracuse 72, Virginia Tech 58Not this time aroundThis is the same Virginia Tech team that Syracuse met in Blacksburg earlier in its conference schedule — unable to guard Rakeem Christmas and do much else but shoot the 3. Except this Orange team, which lost by 10 to North Carolina despite scoring 82 points eight days ago, has come a long way on the offensive end. That said, the Hokies won’t have a shot to come back in this one, even if it gets hot late in the second. This time, SU has a cushion worthy of sleeping on down the stretch.Jacob Klinger (18-3): Syracuse 67, Virginia Tech 58Technically poorVirginia Tech can and will rain some 3s. They do it to the best teams in the conference and the country. But the Carrier Dome air isn’t kind to perimeter-dependent teams and the Hokies’ relationship with the 3-ball is like that of a freshman desperately hanging onto their long-distance significant other. VT’s bound to make the game close and uncomfortable before ultimately ending in heartbreak. Good for Syracuse, though.
