BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo., Jan. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Air Force's 460th Space Wing is now "talking" with the fourth Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) satellite after its successful launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, earlier this evening.

The Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)-built SBIRS GEO Flight-4 satellite is responding to the Wing's commands as planned. Signal acquisition was confirmed approximately 37 minutes after the satellite's 7:48 p.m. EST launch aboard a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket.

SBIRS GEO Flight-4 is the latest satellite to join the Air Force's orbiting missile warning constellation equipped with powerful scanning and staring infrared surveillance sensors. The sensors collect data for use by the U.S. military to detect missile launches, support ballistic missile defense, expand technical intelligence gathering and bolster situational awareness on the battlefield. The satellite also completes the initial constellation and allows SBIRS to provide global coverage.

Back on the ground at Buckley Air Force Base, a sophisticated new SBIRS ground control system – also designed by Lockheed Martin – serves as the nerve center for the entire SBIRS satellite constellation and receives large amounts of data from the satellites' powerful sensors. The SBIRS control system and its operators convert this data into actionable reports for defense, intelligence and civil applications.

"SBIRS is the nation's 24-7 global watchman, with infrared eyes ready to detect and deliver early warning and tracking of ballistic missiles. A cornerstone of the nation's missile defense system, SBIRS is proving even more precise and powerful than expected," said Tom McCormick, vice president of Lockheed Martin's Overhead Persistent Infrared systems mission area. "Space is a place to do great things, and we're already improving on SBIRS, upgrading our fifth and sixth SBIRS GEO satellites to our modernized LM 2100 satellite bus at no additional cost to the Air Force. On SBIRS 5 and 6 the Air Force saved $1 billion through improved production and management efficiencies."

In late 2016, Lockheed Martin also completed a major upgrade SBIRS' ground control system. The new "SBIRS Block 10" system includes enhancements like faster data collection times, improved threat detections, and improved target tracking and infrared information to enable troops to see dimmer targets faster. SBIRS Block 10 also provides the Air Force with greater efficiency by consolidating ground control for the legacy Defense Support Program, as well as SBIRS satellites and payloads in GEO and Highly Elliptical Orbits.

Next, the SBIRS GEO Flight-4 will begin transitioning to its final location in geosynchronous orbit, approximately 22,000 miles above the Earth. There, the satellite's solar arrays, light shade and antennas will be deployed to begin on-orbit testing. The satellite will join SBIRS GEO Flights 1, 2 and 3, which were launched in 2011, 2013 and 2017 respectively and continue to meet or exceed performance expectations.

Lockheed Martin manufactured the SBIRS GEO Flight-4 satellite at its Sunnyvale, California, facility. The satellite was delivered to Florida on Oct. 31, 2017. 

The SBIRS development team is led by the Remote Sensing Systems Directorate at the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, California. Lockheed Martin Space, Sunnyvale, California, is the SBIRS prime contractor, with Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, Azusa, California, as the payload integrator.

DENVER, Jan. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Expect an expanding global economy, strong U.S. consumer confidence and persistent economic recovery in many rural areas, but temper that optimism with another year of on-farm belt tightening due to lingering financial stress from low commodity prices, says a wide-ranging 2018 outlook report from CoBank's Knowledge Exchange Division.

"The rural economy is uniquely impacted by what happens in Washington, the broader U.S. economy and around the world," says Dan Kowalski, vice president of CoBank's Knowledge Exchange Division. "In the coming year, rural America will rise with the broader economic tide, but it will also contend with persistent barriers to prosperity."

The report offers a look at the following 10 key factors that will shape rural communities and the market sectors that support them:

  1. The global economy: Gaining momentum
    The challenge for the world's economies will be how to properly manage the expansion at hand. 2018 will offer a prime opportunity for governments to address structural impediments that have been ignored during the decade-long recovery.
  2. Monetary policy: Rising interest rates
    Central banks around the world will strategize around the primary question of whether wage and consumer prices will accelerate. Foreign central banks sound more hawkish in early 2018, but Europe and Japan will continue to provide a form of quantitative easing through much of the year. In contrast, the Federal Reserve will continue to raise interest rates amidst larger fiscal deficits and an extensive leadership transition.
  3. The U.S. economy: Consumers have that wealthy feeling
    Consumer confidence and the unemployment rates are at their best levels since 2000 and inflation-adjusted wages have been growing faster than the historical average since 2014. Add in the major gains in housing prices and the stock market, and you get a wealth effect that is causing consumers to save less and spend more. Business investment will rise in 2018 to keep up with the strengthening demand.
  4. The Rural economy: Trending in the right direction
    Rural America has lagged urban America in recovering from the 2008 economic crisis. Rural jobs and incomes have been slower to rebound, and the long-term decline of American manufacturing has hit rural communities the hardest. But the rural population, jobs and incomes are all trending in the right direction. And current efforts to improve rural access to broadband will offer the greatest opportunity to make a significant dent in the rural/urban economic divide.
  5. Federal policy: An active election year
    Tax reform has brought changes to individual and corporate tax rates. It has also ushered in the 199A deduction which benefits agriculture co-ops and their members. The deduction, however, has led to controversy over its unintended impact on private agriculture businesses, and is currently being reviewed by the Senate. Congress will also attempt to pass an infrastructure package with a 25 percent rural set aside, and the Farm Bill before the mid-term election.  
  6. Rural infrastructure: Brave new world
    The power and energy industry faces an environment of uncertainty due to tax reform, possible import tariffs on wind and solar equipment, and oversupply in power markets. These factors have stalled investment decisions across the electric utility industry, said Taylor Gunn, CoBank Knowledge Exchange Division lead industry analyst. "Ultimately, the rapidly expanding renewables sector will catch its breath in the first half of 2018, and recommence on its growth trajectory."

    Meanwhile, weak sales and rising costs are contributing to financial strain across water utilities. Roughly one-third of water utilities struggle to cover the full cost of providing service. Revenue stability will play a huge role in reversing the trend that suggests the health of the U.S. water industry is in decline.

    In communications, the competition is heating up over who controls the infrastructure that distributes the data that Americans consume through broadband. The increased competition for market share could reduce rates even as speeds improve. Rural communities can expect further investment in broadband and towers in 2018 as the mission to extend broadband access continues.

  7. Agricultural economy: Another year of belt tightening
    The surplus of agricultural commodities will continue to depress prices and shrink farmer working capital. Farm debt loads will continue to climb as prices fall short of persistently high production costs. Market conditions have also resulted in a sharp, unsustainable divergence between farm income and farm asset values. The timing and extent of the market's correction will be determined by much more than commodity prices and cash flow. The prevailing economic environment, interest rate levels, investor appetite, trade, changes to the tax code, the 2018 Farm Bill, and the changing regulatory environment will all play a role.
  8. Agricultural trade: Mission critical
    NAFTA will be the primary focus for agriculture in the first half of 2018. And all three countries involved will be incentivized to come to an agreement before the Mexican presidential election in July. But more trade deals are in flux that could also greatly affect U.S. agriculture exporters. The rebooted TPP (CPTPP) is being negotiated between all of the original member-countries except the U.S. And the U.S. trade agreement with Korea is also being re-evaluated. U.S. agriculture has a lot at stake as these negotiations unfold, and the rhetoric is likely to get worse before it gets better.
  9. Grain, farm supply and biofuels: Full bins, lean margins
    The grain, farm supply and biofuels sectors face a turbulent year ahead, as the industry further adjusts to a protracted cyclical downturn. Abundant supplies, low market volatility and rising interest rates will constrain farm finances and accelerate the forces of consolidation across the supply chain. This environment will reward scale, and therefore incentivize well positioned producers to keep growing. Retailers and co-ops will be contending with market disruptors that have shaken up other industries and are now gaining a foothold in the farm supply and grain marketing sectors.
  10. Dairy and animal protein: Trade dependency in changing times
    The same abundant grain supplies that have harmed crop farmers have boosted profitability and spurred expansion in the U.S. dairy, livestock and poultry sectors. And more good news is expected in 2018. But as with any expansion, dairy and protein producers face the risk of overplaying their hand and boosting output too much, too fast. Price pressure will be an issue as the expansion continues. And trade uncertainties will loom large as the animal industry continues to grow.

The report, "The Year Ahead: Forces that will Shape the U.S. Rural Economy in 2018" is available at CoBank.com.

The global concentrated solar power market to grow at a CAGR of 18.65% during the period 2018-2022.

Global Concentrated Solar Power Market 2018-2022, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is demand for thermal energy storage to increase the operational time of concentrated solar power. The concentrated solar power plants can only generate power during the sunrise and sunset times. The introduction of thermal energy storage technology allows storage of the thermal energy it collects from these concentrated solar power plants and uses it to generate power when the sun is down, providing increased assistance in raising the operational time of the concentrated solar power plants. For instance, SolarReserve is one of the key companies that has adopted the solar thermal storage technology.

Concentrated solar panel, based on technology can be segmented into parabolic trough collector and solar tower. The parabolic trough collector segment accounted for the maximum share of the concentrated solar power market during 2017. According to our analysts, this segment will continue to contribute to the maximum share of this market during the forecast period as well. The increased usage of concentrated solar power systems will be a major factor driving the market's growth prospects in EMEA.

• Salitrillos, Enel’s first plant in Tamaulipas, will be able to generate around 400 GWh each year;
• The investment in the construction of the facility amounts to approx. 120 million US dollars.

Enel S.p.A. (“Enel”), acting through its renewable energy subsidiary Enel Green Power México (“EGPM”), has started the construction of the 93 MW Salitrillos wind farm, the company’s first plant in the north-eastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas. The overall investment in the construction of the facility amounts to approximately 120 million US dollars, which is part of the investment outlined in Enel’s current Strategic Plan.

“The start of construction of Salitrillos wind farm broadens our leadership within the Mexican market as it allows us to enter into a new, strategic, wind resource-rich state,” said Antonio Cammisecra, Head of Enel’s Global Renewable Energies Division Enel Green Power. “With the construction of this new power plant, assigned in one of our successful tender offers, we prove once again our commitment to deliver in a timely fashion on our tender results, fueling the country’s sustainable development with our green energy.”

Salitrillos, located in the municipality of Reynosa, is expected to enter into service by 2019. Once fully operational, the wind facility will be able to generate around 400 GWh annually. The construction site of Salitrillos will be based on Enel’s “Sustainable Construction Site” model, incorporating the rational use of resources, such as water saving systems and recycling processes.

The wind farm will be supported by a contract providing for the sale to Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (Comisión Federal de Electricidad, CFE) of both specified volumes of energy over a 15-year period and the related clean certificates over a 20-year period.

Enel was recently awarded four wind farms for a total capacity of 593 MW in Mexico’s third long-term public tender since its energy reform. Three plants, Amistad II and Amistad III with a total installed capacity of 100 MW each, and Amistad IV with an installed capacity of 149 MW, will be built in Acuña, in the northern State of Coahuila. The 244 MW Dolores facility will be built in China, a municipality in the northeastern State of Nuevo León.

The Enel Group (enel.com) is the largest renewable energy operator in the country in terms of installed capacity and project portfolio. The Group currently operates 728 MW, of which 675 MW come from wind and 53 MW from hydropower. It is currently building in the State of Coahuila the 754 MW Villanueva solar project, which is the largest PV facility under construction in the Americas and Enel’s largest solar project worldwide, the 200 MW Amistad wind farm, also in the State of Coahuila, and the 238 MW Don José PV project in the State of Guanajuato.

Enel Green Power, the Renewable Energies division of Enel Group, is dedicated to the development and operation of renewables across the world, with a presence in Europe, the Americas, Asia, Africa and Oceania. Enel Green Power is a global leader in the green energy sector with a managed capacity of around 40 GW across a generation mix that includes wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and hydropower, and is at the forefront of integrating innovative technologies into renewables power plants.

SMA Solar Technology AG gründet Tochtergesellschaft coneva GmbH für digitale Energielösungen

19.01.2018

Die SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA/FWB: S92) hat eine neue Tochtergesellschaft für digitale Energielösungen gegründet. Die coneva GmbH mit Sitz in München bietet Unternehmen wie Stadtwerken, Wohnungsbaugesellschaften oder Telekommunikationsunternehmen White Label-Lösungen zum Energiemanagement und der Einbindung von Endkunden in den Energiemarkt an. Ein weiteres Geschäftsfeld sind Lösungen zu Energiemonitoring, -steuerung und -management für Gewerbebetriebe und öffentliche Einrichtungen. Diese können dadurch erheblich Energiekosten sparen. Auf der E-World energy & water vom 6. bis 8. Februar in Essen wird die coneva GmbH erstmals ihr Angebot präsentieren.

Die Energieversorgung befindet sich in einem fundamentalen Umbruch und wird zunehmend dezentral und digital. Immer mehr Unternehmen und Endverbraucher nutzen die Kostenvorteile der Erneuerbaren Energien und produzieren kostengünstig ihren eigenen Strom. In diesem Umfeld brechen die traditionellen Geschäftsmodelle der Versorger weg, neue Wettbewerber treten in den Markt ein und machen den Energie-Prosumern innovative Angebote zur effizienten Nutzung und Vermarktung ihres selbst erzeugten Stroms. Die klassischen Versorger werden an diesem Markt nur teilhaben, wenn sie ihren Kunden eigene Lösungen für die neue Energiewelt anbieten können. Diese Lösungen entwickelt die coneva GmbH für sie.

„Die Digitalisierung der Energieversorgung bietet viele attraktive Geschäftschancen. Vor diesem Hintergrund gehört die Weiterentwicklung der SMA zu einem Energiedienstleister in den kommenden Jahren zu unseren wichtigsten strategischen Zielen“, erklärt SMA Vorstandssprecher Pierre-Pascal Urbon. „Die Gründung der coneva GmbH ist ein wichtiger Meilenstein auf dem Weg dorthin. Durch sie werden wir mit einer Energiedienstleistungsplattform, einem Ökosystem bestehend aus der IoT-Plattform für Energiemanagement ennexOS, innovativen Dienstleistungen und Partnern aus der Energiebranche neue Märkte und Kundengruppen erschließen. Basis dafür ist die jahrelange Erfahrung und unerreichte Expertise von SMA in allen Bereichen des sektorenübergreifenden Energiemanagements.“

Im Zentrum des Geschäftsmodells der coneva GmbH steht das ganzheitliche Energiemanagement über alle Sektoren hinweg, also von Erzeugern wie Photovoltaik- oder Windkraftanlagen, Verbrauchern wie Beleuchtung, Heizung, Lüftung, Kälte, Kühlung, Speichern und Elektromobilität, sowie die Zusammenführung von Angebot und Nachfrage über die von SMA entwickelte Plattform ennexOS.

„Die Digitalisierung der Energieversorgung bietet völlig neue Chancen und Möglichkeiten für Branchen wie kommunale Energieversorger, Wohnungswirtschaft, Supermärkte, Hotelketten und OEMs“, sagt coneva-Geschäftsführer Jochen Schneider. „Wir freuen uns sehr darauf, unsere Kunden mit einem erfahrenen Expertenteam dabei zu unterstützen, dieses Potenzial auszuschöpfen. Unser White-Label-Lösungsansatz verbindet entsprechend die Hard- und Software mit den passenden Dienstleistungen zu umfassenden Lösungspaketen. Gerade im Bereich der Energiedienstleistungen treten zurzeit viele Start-ups in den Markt ein. Sie haben kaum Erfahrung im Markt und mit der Technologie. Für uns ist es daher ein großer Vorteil, dass wir auf der langjährigen Expertise, der ausgereiften Technologie und den Daten von SMA aufbauen und gleichzeitig unabhängig vom Mutterkonzern sehr eigenständig und dynamisch agieren können. Zusätzlich gibt die finanzielle Stärke von SMA unseren Kunden Sicherheit.“

Auf der E-World energy & water vom 6. bis 8. Februar in Essen präsentiert die coneva GmbH ihre Lösungen in Halle 2, Stand 2-314.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Geographic Society today announced the election of two new members to its Board of Trustees: business and marketing leader Beth Comstock and solar energy pioneer and entrepreneur Lyndon Rive. The announcement was made by Jean Case, chairman of the Board of Trustees, and Gary E. Knell, the Society's president and chief executive officer. Comstock and Rive join the 17-member Board and will each serve an initial four-year term.

"We are delighted to welcome Beth and Lyndon to the National Geographic Society Board of Trustees," said Case. "Throughout their trailblazing careers, Beth and Lyndon have been visionary changemakers who understand how to leverage disruption and transform landscapes for good. Their business experience coupled with the passion they both share for National Geographic's mission is a perfect fit with the Board and the organization as we continue to build upon National Geographic's 130-year legacy and chart the course for our future."

Comstock was most recently Vice Chair of General Electric Co., where she led efforts to accelerate new growth and innovation. Over two decades at GE, Comstock initiated the company's digital and clean-energy transformations, developed new businesses, increased GE's brand value and partnered to enhance its inventive culture. She also led the creation of Current, an intelligent environments business; GE Ventures & Licensing; FastWorks; Ecomagination and Healthymagination businesses; and oversaw GE Lighting. In addition, she was responsible for the sales, marketing and communications functions and was the company's first Chief Marketing Officer in 20 years.

Her first book, "Imagine It Forward," offers life lessons in change and transformation within organizations. It will be published in September 2018 by Currency, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Comstock is also a director at Nike. She graduated from the College of William & Mary with a degree in biology.

Rive was most recently President, Global Sales and Service at Tesla for Energy. He co-founded and was CEO of SolarCity, which was acquired by Tesla in 2016. Under his leadership, SolarCity became the No. 1 solar company in the world to consumers and businesses and one of the most recognizable brands in clean energy. SolarCity completed more than 300,000 solar installations in the United States — representing approximately one out of every four solar electricity installations in American history — and created funds to finance more than $10 billion in renewable energy projects.

Prior to SolarCity, Rive cofounded Everdream, an industry leader in software and services for large-scale, distributed computer management. Rive negotiated the company's partnership with Dell Inc., which acquired Everdream in 2007.

Rive also serves on the boards of GivePower, World Spine Care and Off Grid Electric.

"Beth and Lyndon are great examples of the kinds of bold people with transformative ideas that have helped shape the National Geographic Society over the years," said Knell. "Their innovative leadership will greatly benefit the Society as we look to increase the impact of our work and drive the creation of a planet in balance."
