VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif., Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta IV rocket carrying a payload for the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) lifted off from Space Launch Complex-6 on Jan. 12 at 2:11 p.m. PST. Designated NROL-47, the mission is in support of national defense.

"As the nation's most trustworthy launch provider, today's launch exemplifies ULA's ongoing commitment to 100 percent mission success," said Will Crawford, ULA's NRO program manager. "My sincere thanks to the entire ULA team and our mission partners at the NRO and U.S. Air Force who made this, our 27th NRO launch, possible."

This mission was launched aboard a Delta IV Medium+ (5, 2) configuration Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) powered by one common booster core and two solid rocket motors built by Orbital ATK. The common booster core was powered by an RS-68A liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine. A single RL10B-2 liquid hydrogen/liquid oxygen engine powered the second stage. The booster and upper stage engines are both built by Aerojet Rocketdyne. ULA constructed the Delta IV Medium+ (5,2) launch vehicle in Decatur, Ala.

This is ULA's first launch in 2018 and the 124th successful launch since the company was formed in December 2006. It was also the 36th flight of the Delta IV rocket since its inaugural launch in 2002.

The EELV program was established by the U.S. Air Force to provide assured access to space for Department of Defense and other government payloads. The commercially developed EELV program supports the full range of government mission requirements, while delivering on schedule and providing significant cost savings over the legacy launch systems.

ULA's next launch is the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) GEO Flight 4 mission for the U.S. Air Force on an Atlas V rocket. The launch is scheduled for Jan. 18 from Space Launch Complex-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla.

GUELPH, Ontario, Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Canadian Solar Inc. ("Canadian Solar" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: CSIQ), one of the world's largest solar power companies, today updated its guidance for the fourth quarter and full year 2017 in part to reflect the timing of certain utility-scale solar project sales. The updated guidance is subject to adjustments based upon completion of the Company's internal review process. Final reported results could differ materially from the estimates provided below. 

In the guidance provided in its press release dated November 9, 2017, the Company noted that in September and October 2017, it had entered into definitive agreements with two buyers to sell a portfolio of six solar power projects in California, totaling 703 MWp. The parties hoped to close the transactions in the fourth quarter of 2017 or the first quarter of 2018, depending on the timing of receipt of the required governmental approvals. These transactions were not completed in 2017 and have not yet received the required government approvals. The Company will update the timing for the completion of these transactions once the parties receive the required government approvals. 

As a result of the delay in completing the transactions, the Company now expects its total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 to be in the range of $1.04 billion to $1.08 billion, compared to $1.77 billion to $1.81 billion guided previously.  

Meanwhile, Canadian Solar updates its solar module shipment guidance for the fourth quarter of 2017 to be in the range of approximately 1,720 MW to 1,820 MW, compared to 1,650 MW to 1,750 MW guided previously. Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2017 is now expected to be in the range of 16.5% to 18.5%, compared to 10.5% to 12.5% previously guided. The sales of the portfolio of six solar power projects in California have low margins and, therefore, had lowered the gross margin estimate in the previous guidance. On the other hand, in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company sold a portfolio of Japanese solar projects to Canadian Solar Infrastructure Fund, Inc., which went public in October 2017, as well as sold certain other solar projects in the U.S. and other countries. These transactions had healthy margins. The new guidance reflected the blended gross margin of Canadian Solar's module and solutions businesses, as well as these project sales. The Company will provide more details in the fourth quarter 2017 business update of its regular earnings press release.

For the full year 2017, Canadian Solar now expects its total solar module shipments to be in the range of approximately 6.8 GW to 6.9 GW, compared to 6.7 GW to 6.8 GW guided previously. The Company now expects its total revenue for the full year 2017 to be in the range of $3.33 billion to $3.37 billion, compared to $4.05 billion to $4.09 billion previously guided.

Last month at Greentech Media's Energy Storage Summit, I had the pleasure of moderating a panel, Crowdsourced Market Insights: Role of Energy Storage in Creating the Grid of the Future. This panel employed a unique structure where our experts on stage were asked to interpret and weigh in as 500 attendees answered live polling questions on the top themes in the market. 

The results, with additional context from our research, are presented in a new research report, available for free here. Below, I summarize some key findings.

Storage will displace natural gas peakers (eventually!)

Only 1 percent of attendees feel that natural-gas plants will always out-compete storage, a perspective that may have been shaped by Shayle Kann’s earlier presentation indicating that 4-hour storage begins to compete with peaker plants within four years, and always wins financially within 10 years. The majority of attendees foresee energy storage dominance outside of a five-year time frame.

Broad optimism among the industry on utility engagement

More than four out of five attendees believe 41 percent or more of utilities will be including energy storage in their IRPs within five years -- and their optimism seems justified. GTM Research’s tracking shows the trend is not just emerging -- energy storage is becoming the norm in utility planning. 

In fact, Oregon is a sign of the times for utilities -- Portland General Electric recently announced RFPs for up to 39 megawatts, the upper limit of the state’s energy storage mandate. When was the last time we saw a utility outpace legislators?

Lithium-ion is the undisputed king – who will emerge as its challenger?

Flow batteries draw the most optimism, with nearly half of attendees citing them as the most exciting technology for utility-scale applications. As system durations continue to grow, flow battery manufacturers are increasingly bullish on their pricing, claiming the high ground for 6-hour or longer duration and even eyeing the coveted 4-hour mark.

In the most definitive result, solar emerges as storage’s one true love

User poll: [Blank] Plus Storage is a Match Made in Heaven

According to GTM Research’s latest analysis, coming out this quarter, a residential solar-plus-storage system installed today in SDG&E, PG&E or SCE’s service territory in California can break even within seven years, even without the Self-Generation Incentive Program.

Utility-scale solar-plus-storage PPAs are also reaching record lows as costs drop, and recent analysis has examined just how low costs will have to go to sustain these rock-bottom LCOEs.

We also asked participants:

  • When will behind-the-meter megawatt deployments outstrip front of the meter?
  • What is the most effective way an energy storage project can differentiate itself from its competitors?
  • What will the keynote presentation be at Energy Storage Summit 2022? 
  • And more..

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Underscoring its leadership in environmental sustainability, LG Electronics USA was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with the Champion Award, special recognition for demonstrating significant environmental, social and economic outcomes that go above and beyond the requirements of the EPA's Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge. 

The company received the Product Champion Award for LG OLED TVs, which are designed to reduce environmental impact and to be easier to disassemble and recycle. Presented here today on "CES® 2018 Sustainability Day," the Champion Award recognizes LG's "leadership in innovating processes and products that focus on environmentally responsible material use throughout its entire life cycle," according to the EPA.

LG also earned the EPA's Silver Tier Award in recognition of LG's significant contributions to the EPA's SMM Electronics Challenge goals by collecting a significant amount of used electronics for reuse and recycle, sending 100 percent of used electronics to certified third-party recyclers, and publicly sharing detailed information about its electronic management practices.

"Innovative industry leaders like LG – finding new, sustainable methods to reduce electronic waste – are paving the way for the future of manufacturing," said EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. "Through their efforts, our SMM Electronics Challenge exemplifies the ability to promote economic growth while protecting human health and the environment."

LG OLED Champion Award

EPA is recognizing LG for its "vision in continually replacing and reducing use of hazardous materials in electronics products by developing OLED TVs that are mercury-free, use PVC-free internal cables and BFR-free housing and stand parts, and greatly reduce the potential harm to humans and the environment."

Production processes that reduce or eliminate toxic materials demonstrate LG's vision for the future of electronics to minimize environmental and human health through product advancements. Razor-thin LG OLED TVs have reduced raw material content compared to conventional flat panel TVs. LG has also reduced the number of plastic resins used in its product design and labeled those resins to facilitate disassembly and recycling.

The EPA commended LG for its high level of engagement with suppliers to improve their environmental performance by transferring LG's greener technologies and know-how to suppliers' operations through the company's "Green Program Plus" initiative.

LG OLED TVs also earned the Design for Recycling® Award from the world's leading recycling industry group, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries. ISRI's highest honor recognized LG for developing OLED and LED TVs with greener features designed to reduce the environmental load at every stage of the product lifecycle. In addition, LG OLED models were the first TVs to earn UL "GREENGUARD" Certification that helps create healthier indoor environments. UL Environment's rigorous GREENGUARD testing confirmed low chemical and formaldehyde emissions from LG OLED TVs.

Electronics Recycling Leadership

According to Barnes Johnson, Director of the EPA Office of Resource Conservation and Recovery, who presented the awards at CES 2018, the successful practices spearheaded by LG are inspiring examples of how other manufacturers and brand owners are "working to make electronics more sustainable throughout their lifecycles, from design to manufacturing to end-of-life management."

William Cho, president and CEO, LG Electronics USA, applauded the EPA SMM Electronics Challenge program, which encourages responsible recycling. "By using third-party certified recyclers, we're proud to help drive the use of environmentally protective practices. LG's leadership in the Challenge reflects our strong commitment to building a robust market for electronic recycling in the U.S."

LG's SMM Challenge Award recognizes the collection and responsible recycling of nearly 21,000 tons of used electronics, diverting solid waste from landfills in the past year. This avoided the equivalent of more than 55,000 tons of CO2 emissions. At collection events, LG encourages consumers to replace recycled electronics with new, more energy efficient ENERGY STAR® certified LG TV and monitors.

Supporting its commitment to responsible recycling, LG Electronics Inc. is the world's first "Global e-Stewards Enterprise." The e-Stewards standard, developed by the Basel Action Network, is the world's most rigorous certification program for electronics recyclers. It prevents the export and dumping of toxic electronic waste in developing countries and calls for safeguards to protect private data and ensure that recycling plant workers are not exposed to toxic materials.

"Sustainability is a core business principle at LG Electronics, and we believe LG has a shared responsibility to protect the environment by reducing our environmental impact while enhancing the quality of life for consumers. We call this 'Innovation for a Better Life,' and it means both responsible recycling and developing innovative products with the environment in mind," Cho said.
