Talking to guests and media at the launch event, Venus Teoh, International Brand Director for Tiger Beer, shared: "True to our spirit of uncaging creativity and providing a platform for emerging talent to the world, Tiger Beer has brought together our partner WWF, the co-creative directors of KENZO, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, and four handpicked young artists to create the limited edition Rare Stripes collection."

"This collection is another one of the ways we're raising global awareness and funds for endangered wild tigers. We want people to take action to save the wild tigers, our beloved brand icon, from extinction," she continued.

Michael Baltzer, Leader of Tigers Alive Initiative (WWF) added: "Every day we see tigers used in popular culture - in fashion motifs, on premium products and on billboards. Yet, tigers in the wild are in danger of becoming extinct. WWF is a leader in an ambitious global effort to double wild tigers but the tiger needs every help it can get. We are therefore delighted to have this powerful partnership with Tiger Beer and KENZO. We hope it sets a new wave of action and awareness from other brands for wild tigers."

KENZO's co-creative directors, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim and the four emerging artists that designed the collection were also present to launch the collection. Urging guests to lend their support to the cause, Humberto shared: "Carol and I had been hoping to work with WWF for some time and we were delighted that Tiger Beer brought us together. We hope our collaboration with WWF and these four great artists for this important cause will inspire people around the world to learn more about saving wild tigers. The reality is that if we don't take action now, we could very easily lose these animals forever."  

The four artists hailing from Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore and the United States also drew inspiration from their trip to Cambodia where they worked closely with Leon and Lim to design the collection and heard from Phurba Lendhup, a WWF Wildlife Specialist from Bhutan, first-hand about the plight of wild tigers.

The launch event, which hosted over 150 guests and members of the media, provided an exclusive preview of the eight unique designs available for sale in the collection, aptly displayed within coat hangers fashioned out of snare wire traditionally used in poaching, in a bid to further drive home the plight of wild tigers.

The Rare Stripes collection officially drops at 3pm on July 21, with a limited number available via selected KENZO retail stores internationally from the beginning of August. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the collection, which is made using Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) compliant organic cotton, will go to WWF in support of doubling the world's wild tiger population.

This is the second year of a six-year partnership between Tiger Beer and WWF to support WWF's global efforts in tiger conservation. The first year of the WWF partnership featured the successful #3890Tigers campaign, which invited people from around the world to pledge against illegal tiger trade by merging their 'selfies' with one of six bespoke tiger artworks created by global artists using the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology.

DUBLIN, July 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Automotive Paints Market by Type, Resin, Technology, Paint Equipment, Texture, Content, ICE & EVs, Refinish, and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The automotive paints market is estimated to be USD 8.74 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 10.65 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 2.88% from 2018 to 2025.

The demand for automotive paints is driven by the increasing demand for vehicles; whereas, technologies and R&D investments are influenced by government regulations.

However, advancements in automotive safety technologies have resulted in the reduced number of accidents, which, in turn, is a restraint for the automotive refinish paints market.

Waterborne technology is estimated to have the largest share in automotive paints market, by technology

The major advantage of waterborne paint is its low toxicity and flammability due to lower VOC levels. Paints based on this technology have excellent adhesion and greater heat resistance compared to solvent-based paints.

Owing to stringent emission regulations such as Regulation, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical Substances (REACH), countries in Europe are reducing the use of solvent-borne paints and have shifted towards eco-friendly waterborne paints.

North America and Europe are estimated to showcase the largest usage rate for waterborne paints and are projected to grow at a steady pace over the forecast period.

Developing markets such as India and China are also switching to water-based paints, thus increasing the demand for waterborne paints over the forecast period.

Asia Oceania to dominate the automotive paints market

The automotive industry in the Asia Oceania region has been dynamic over the past few years and has seen an increase in the annual production of passenger and commercial vehicles. As a result, in the recent years, Asia Oceania has emerged as a hub for automobile production.

As compared to the region's substantial population, the vehicle ownership is low, making Asia Oceania an attractive market for global manufacturers. With the increasing vehicle production, the demand for paint will also increase, making increasing vehicle production the single biggest driver of the Asia Oceania automotive paints market.

Currently, due to the lack of strict VOC regulations, the usage of waterborne paints is lower than that in the western countries. This situation, however, is expected to change in the future and the demand for waterborne coating is projected to increase.

These factors combined, Asia Oceania is projected to be the largest automotive paint market over the forecast period.

Lighter Than Air technology (LTA) has been with significant improvements over the last decade. Military and civilian organizations have been researching on the LTA technology to investigate its use in diverse applications (airships and balloons). Initially balloons were used by the military to monitor the troops movement during the American Civil War. Modern LTA vehicles are advanced and military forces are continuing to use it for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission. With the growing number of terrorist activities across the globe, military forces are increasingly using LTA technology to keep an eye over the illegal crossings at the borders.

With the growing uses of LTA technology in commercial and military applications, the research on high-altitude platforms has begun for the ends-users. High-Altitude Aeronautics Platform Station (HAAPS) is an object in a space at an altitude of 20 km to 50 km. These platforms can be manned or unmanned based on the requirement of various applications.

However, unmanned platforms are increasingly preferred in comparison to that of the manned platforms, owing to the long endurance of unmanned platforms.

The demand for HAAPS is majorly attributed to the increased advantages of HAAPS over conventional satellite and terrestrial-based systems. Additionally, growing terrorism and increased tensions across the borders are some of the factors that are propelling the adoption of the high-altitude platforms. Moreover, the military modernization programs of the different armed forces are strengthening the homeland security of the forces, pushing the sales of HAAPS market.

SAN DIEGO & GLENDORA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EDF Renewables North America announces the signing of a 25-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Southern California Public Power Authority (SCPPA) for the energy and renewable attributes related to the 70 megawatts (MWac) / 100.8 MWdc Desert Harvest II solar photovoltaic project under a Renewable Energy Credit (REC) + Index structure. The Desert Harvest II Solar Project is expected to begin delivery of clean electricity to SCPPA’s participating members, Anaheim, Burbank, and Vernon, starting in 2020. In conjunction, EDF Renewables signed a long-term financial hedge for power with Morgan Stanley Capital Group Inc.

This transaction demonstrates EDF Renewables’ ability to create customer-centric solutions. Under the SCPPA PPA, EDF Renewables worked diligently with forward-thinking California municipalities to create a structuring solution to address the specific challenges posed by the California “duck curve.” EDF Renewables is able to provide SCPPA with a PPA structure that shelters the buyer from exposure to merchant prices through the utilization of a long-term hedge, coupled with a 35 MW, 4-hour energy storage system (ESS), which are both the responsibility of and for the benefit of the Seller.

The Desert Harvest II Solar Project is located on unincorporated land in Riverside County, California, administered by the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The BLM designated this area as a Solar Energy Zone (SEZ) and Development Focus Area, land set aside for utility-scale renewable energy development. Desert Harvest II is also specially designed to generate clean energy while protecting wildlife habitat and public lands. The project will utilize horizontal single-axis tracking solar photovoltaic (PV) technology.

“EDF Renewables is pleased to partner with SCPPA’s participating members – Anaheim, Burbank, and Vernon - to supply affordable, in-state solar energy to their customers from the Desert Harvest II Solar Project,” commented Ryan Pfaff, executive vice president of grid-scale power at EDF Renewables. “Desert Harvest II represents the Company’s second collaboration with SCPPA, and we look forward to working with them to make the project a success, providing a boost to the Riverside County economy in parallel through the creation of new jobs.”

SCPPA’s Executive Director, Mike Webster, states “EDF Renewable’s Desert Harvest II Solar Project will help to allow our participating member utilities to be on track to achieve their renewable production goals of 40% by the end of 2024.”

In addition to its economic benefits for Riverside County, the project will utilize an innovative design to generate enough clean energy to meet the consumption of up to 35,000 average California homes. This is equivalent to avoiding more than 173,000 metric tons of CO₂ emissions annually1 which represents the greenhouse gas emissions from 37,000 passenger vehicles driven over the course of one year.

1 According to US EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies calculations.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today announced interim findings from an ongoing Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) project that aims to demonstrate the functionality of smart inverters.

As more Californians power their lives with solar energy, energy storage and electric vehicles, PG&E is looking to the smart inverters that will be installed on those technologies to manage their interaction with the grid in support of continued clean energy growth.

“We have a long history of embracing innovation and new technologies for the benefit of our customers and the communities we serve. The smart inverters being installed on our customers’ solar and energy storage systems, paired with our investment in grid operations systems and technology, show promise to facilitate distribution system reliability and power quality in the increasingly complex grid,” said Roy Kuga, vice president, Grid Integration and Innovation, PG&E.

A standard inverter converts power from solar panels and batteries from its native direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC) which can be used on site or fed into the power grid. A smart inverter is a more sophisticated version of an inverter that makes autonomous decisions that can help maintain grid stability, reliability and power quality. In the near future, smart inverters will be required to have the capability to receive remote operation instructions and communicate measurements and status. Some solar installations already have smart inverters with these advanced capabilities.

California’s investor-owned utilities (IOUs) began requiring smart inverters on all new solar interconnections starting September 8, 2017, through the California Public Utility Commission’s Rule 21 tariff. As smart inverter standards and requirements continue to evolve, PG&E can use demonstration projects like this one to explore how smart inverters on customers’ solar installations function and interact with the grid.

Completed Project Activities

PG&E recently published an interim report on project activities and findings to date, along with planned next steps.

PG&E’s Grid Integration and Innovation group, which is leading the project, has found that smart inverters can be beneficial. As solar has become more ubiquitous in California over the past decade, the grid has started to experience reliability and power quality issues. Smart inverters have the potential to prevent the solar systems from contributing to voltage fluctuations and adverse impacts on protection systems due to reverse power flow. The demonstration has also shown that more work and investments are needed to standardize the technology and improve communications reliability. The ongoing project will next test the capabilities of smart inverters on a different type of electrical distribution circuit with higher solar penetration.

PG&E believes that with additional investments that enable grid planning and operations to achieve better utility monitoring, visibility, and communication capabilities, smart inverters have the potential to become an important tool in the integration of clean energy into California’s electric grid.

Ongoing Project Activities

Working with Turlock-based JKB Energy, PG&E is testing smart inverter capabilities on commercial-scale solar installations for agricultural customers. These installations are all connected to the same distribution line in Merced County, and this particular circuit already has a high penetration of solar-generated electricity and has experienced problems as a result of the amount of solar currently installed. The project includes installing smart inverters to prevent the inverter from contributing to voltage issues, ensure greater electric reliability, and facilitate the continued integration of additional solar. JKB Energy installed and maintains the customer-owned solar generating stations.

“At JKB Energy, we place a heavy emphasis on paying close attention to the details that can make or break a project. In working with PG&E to install smart inverters for some of our shared customers, we have the opportunity to enhance our customers’ experience with a solution that integrates more clean energy onto the grid, ultimately resulting in greater safety, reliability, and affordability for our customers,” said Bob Hansen, vice president and chief operating officer, JKB Energy.

This project is funded by PG&E customers through EPIC - a program that enables California investor-owned utilities to demonstrate new and novel technologies and evaluate how they support safety, reliability, and affordability objectives for the benefit of their customers. To learn more about EPIC, visit www.pge.com/epic.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG), is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric energy companies in the United States. Based in San Francisco, with more than 20,000 employees, the company delivers some of the nation’s cleanest energy to nearly 16 million people in Northern and Central California.
