CLEVELAND, March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global demand for underground mining machinery is forecast to advance 4.0% per year to $22.6 billion. Growth will be fueled primarily by rising metals prices and increases in metals mining output, which frequently utilizes underground methods.

More information about this study is here: https://www.freedoniagroup.com/World-Mining-Equipment.html

The rising mechanization of China's significant coal mining sector will also drive demand for underground mining equipment. This increasing mechanization will be supported by various government initiatives, including the closure of outdated, smaller mines and restrictions on granting approvals for new coal mines with an annual coal output of 1.2 million tons. The increasing use of state-of-the-art underground mining equipment in mature markets, and a shift toward more sophisticated machinery types in developing nations, will also support underground mining equipment demand. These and other trends are presented in Global Mining Equipment, a new study from The Freedonia Group, a Cleveland-based industry research firm.

However, global coal production and associated machinery sales are forecast to climb at a subpar pace as many nations transition toward renewable fuel sources, such as wind and solar energy, and natural gas production increases.

Demand for all types of mining equipment is forecast to grow 4.4% per year through 2022, rebounding from the declines of the 2012-2017 period. A recovery in mined commodity prices will improve the financial position of mine operators and make equipment purchases more viable. Advances in construction, manufacturing, and agricultural activity will spur increases in the global need for certain mined commodities.

Global Mining Equipment (published 10/2018, 443 pages) is available for $6800 from The Freedonia Group. Please link citations to https://www.freedoniagroup.com/industry-study/global-mining-equipment-3629.htm

Focused on the control of domestic energy consumption, this young company offers solutions for managing a wide range of electrical equipment in private homes. The aggregation of all connected homes enables the creation of virtual energy plants.

tiko, a Swiss startup established in 2012, has developed a unique technology for exploiting the full potential of electrical equipment (water heaters, heat pumps, solar panels, batteries, electrical outlets etc.) that may be present in most individual homes. The tiko solution connects these devices to a platform and makes them controllable. The user has a personalized dashboard that centralizes all his data in a highly secure way, he can then control his electricity consumption and comfort according to his needs, or optimize his self-consumption strategy (heating the DHW, supplying the household appliances via the connected sockets, battery charging, etc.) and reduce his electricity bill.

Besides the micro-local management of their energy consumption, users of tiko solutions may participate in schemes to aggregate connected homes and create extensive flexible energy consumption, generation and storage reservoirs, which react intelligently to fluctuations in the electricity network. If production in a region falls suddenly, some facilities are able to vary their heating cycle slightly until generation returns to normal. This mechanism, known as “load shedding”, frees up additional electricity capacity for the collective electricity network, thereby creating a “virtual power plant”. The company has developed algorithms based on machine learning that allow these short-term erasures to be carried out without affecting the customer's comfort.

Frédéric Gastaldo, general manager of tiko: "We are excited to be part of the ENGIE group. Its strong international presence, its know-how in all aspects of energy and its unique combination of energy supply will enable tiko to express its full potential, accelerate its development and integration and and thereby contribute significantly to the energy transition that is under way”

Directly linked to the Group’s strategy of decentralization and digitization, this investment will ultimately result in the creation of genuine energy communities on multiple levels, from the individual home to the national electricity network, and this in territories as varied as those of the Group. This operation will also enable ENGIE to support tiko’s strategy of international development - the company has already sold several thousand copies of its solution in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and France.

Yves Le Gélard, Chief Digital Officer of the ENGIE Group, says: “The unique technology developed by tiko will enable us to create new services for our residential customers and move towards the building of decentralized energy communities. It effectively completes our portfolios of load-balancing and storage solutions, which are so crucial to the achievement of the energy transition.”

• Prototype is GE's largest onshore wind turbine in operation to date;
• New turbine in company’s Cypress platform is producing power at rated level of 5.3 MW;
• Company on track to deliver first Cypress platform turbine by the end of 2019;
• More powerful wind turbines part of trend to lower costs and drive growth of renewable energy.

GE Renewable Energy announced today that the prototype for its Cypress platform, the largest onshore wind turbine for GE in the field, has been successfully installed and is fully operational, producing power at a rated level of 5.3 MW in Wieringermeer, Netherlands. Company officials hail the milestone as a key step in commercializing a unit able to both lower the cost of electricity and offer additional flexibility in terms of where wind turbines can be located.

The Cypress 5.3 MW prototype was installed in late 2018 and produced its first kilowatt in February 2019. GE Renewable Energy will continue to operate the prototype during the months to come in order to validate the performance of the Cypress platform. This testing will also support the process of obtaining the Type Certificate, a key step in commercializing the product.

Jérôme Pécresse, CEO of GE Renewable Energy, said,"We're delighted with the progress our team has been able to make in bringing our innovative, high-tech turbine to market on an accelerated schedule. We are confident that Cypress, with its two-piece blade design, will be a game changer for the industry. We're hearing equal enthusiasm from our customers across the globe, who tell us they appreciate the potential of Cypress to help them both lower the cost of onshore wind and gain added flexibility in siting turbines."

The Cypress platform is offered with multiple ratings and varying hub heights. It will enable a lower cost of electricity by matching each wind turbine solution to specific site needs, which is critical as wind power increasingly competes on price with other sources of power generation.

First announced in September 2017 1, the Cypress platform will be powered by a revolutionary two-piece blade design that makes it possible to use larger rotors and site the turbines in a wider variety of locations. The AEP improvements from the longer rotors help to drive down Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE), and the proprietary blade design allows these larger turbines to be installed in locations that were previously inaccessible.

Duncan Berry, CEO of LM Wind Power, said,"The project is truly coming together in a very short and demanding time frame. We have invented a new and effective solution for a blade in two parts, which is borne of the full expertise of LM Wind Power engineers combined with design input from GE Renewable Energy and GE Research. The technology results from decades of blade making knowledge and experience."

1. The first turbine in the platform, the 4.8-158 turbine was introduced in September, 2017. The 5.3 MW turbine and Cypress Platform name were introduced in September, 2018

JUNO BEACH, Fla., March 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) today filed a proposal with the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) for a new community solar program that would offer FPL customers the opportunity to directly participate in Florida's transformation to a world leader in solar energy.

Through this voluntary program, participating customers will help accelerate the cost-effective growth of solar in Florida by subscribing to a portion of new solar power capacity, and in return, they will receive credits that are expected to reduce their monthly bills over time.

"We've been aggressively expanding solar with one goal in mind: bringing more solar to all of our customers cost-effectively while continuing to keep their bills lower than 90 percent of the country," said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL. "This innovative program is another major step forward in our '30-by-30' plan, which is one of the world's largest solar expansions, and also an unprecedented opportunity for our customers to harness the power of the sun like never before."

FPL SolarTogetherSM will significantly expand solar energy in Florida. Pending PSC approval, FPL plans to install 1,490 megawatts of new universal solar at 20 new solar power plants across FPL's service territory to meet anticipated customer enrollment in the program. Built cost-effectively, the new solar power plants attributed to the program are projected to generate an estimated $139 million in net savings for customers over the long term, primarily from avoided fuel and other system savings. Participating customers will receive direct credits for the savings on their monthly bills, and the program is designed to also contribute a portion of the savings to all customers, which will help keep fuel costs low for everyone.

If approved, FPL SolarTogether will be the largest community solar program in the United States. According to the Solar Energy Industry of America's latest information, a total of 1,298 megawatts of community solar has been installed in the U.S. through the third quarter of last year.

"This program will more than double the amount of community solar currently in the U.S.," said Silagy. "More importantly, FPL SolarTogether will allow individual customers to personally support Florida's affordable, clean energy revolution while lowering their electric rates and bills over the long term."

FPL studied community solar programs offered throughout the country, including Florida. The result is a next generation solar option for customers that offers flexibility, convenience and is not subject to the confines of their location. Program participants will not be tied to a long-term contract and can terminate or reduce their subscription at any time. In addition, because the subscription is associated with a customer account and not a physical address, program participants who move within FPL's service area can maintain their subscription benefits. FPL expects program participants to achieve a simple payback on their subscription within seven years. FPL also will retire Renewable Energy Certificates or RECs on behalf of participants who are looking to meet sustainability goals.

In order to gauge potential customer interest in a program like this, FPL has been working with its largest energy users, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. More than 200 of FPL's largest energy users – including municipalities, large national retail chains, universities, banks, restaurants and schools – have committed to participate, providing the foundation for such a large program.

"Include Miami-Dade County among the advocates and early endorsers of FPL's SolarTogether program," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Giménez. "A 'Resilient 305' means embracing sustainable and environmentally responsible options to promote the growth and utilization of smart, affordable solar energy sources to secure power for Miami-Dade County facilities and allow residents and businesses to reap the benefits of zero emissions and cost savings."

"Broward County is proud to be the first county in Florida to preregister for the new FPL SolarTogether program," said Dr. Jennifer Jurado, Broward County's chief resilience officer and director of environmental planning and community resilience division. "Our participation in this forward-thinking initiative helps advance our community's ongoing commitment to a sustainable environment while delivering significant, long-term cost savings."

"Reducing our impact on the environment is a major focus for 7‑Eleven, and shifting to renewable energy is important to our progress," said Ann Scott, director of energy, engineering and store planning for 7-Eleven. "We're strongly encouraged by the rapid growth of large solar plants in one of our key states, Florida. The FPL SolarTogether program brings us one step closer to achieving 7-Eleven's sustainability goals. With over 500 participating stores in Florida, we are making significant strides to reduce our carbon footprint."

"We have exceeded our first renewable goal by 10 years and thank FPL for designing this innovative program," said Tom Barwin, the City Manager of City of Sarasota.

"The City of Coral Springs is excited about the opportunity to participate in the FPL shared-solar program, called SolarTogether," said Director of Public Works, Rich Michaud, City of Coral Springs. "The program gives the City of Coral Springs an opportunity to share in the benefits and cost savings of a large-scale solar program while receiving monthly credits over the term of the project. FPL SolarTogether meets the goal of sustainability for the City of Coral Springs."

"Our residents are excited we now get the opportunity to go solar," said Carlington Pinnock, community association manager, The Wave Condominium Association in Hollywood. "From coast to coast, so many Floridians enjoy the ease of living in a condominium. And, now with FPL SolarTogether, that lifestyle can also include solar."

"Broward College is committed to the education and advancement of sustainable energies that improve community wellness," said John Dunnuck, chief operating officer, Broward College. "The College's partnership with FPL's SolarTogether program is an investment in Florida's future."

"A clean environment is a top priority for Florida Atlantic University, and we're strongly encouraged by the rapid growth of large solar plants in Florida," said Michael Dipple, director of FAU's Engineering Utilities and Energy Management. "We look forward to participating in the new FPL SolarTogether program and the ability to meet FAU's energy needs with clean power that is generated using the sun for fuel."

The new energy centers built through the program will increase the use of solar power on the energy grid, helping to offset the use of other power plants fueled by non-renewable resources. As a result, all FPL customers, including those who do not participate in FPL SolarTogether, will benefit from the fuel savings produced by the new solar facilities. The first six solar plants, each of which will have about 300,000 solar panels and be capable of generating 74.5 megawatts of solar, are scheduled to be operational in early 2020, with the remaining 14 facilities planned for 2021. FPL has already secured enough land to build all of these plants and the company plans to announce the individual locations in the future.

"FPL's SolarTogether program provides an innovative approach to addressing business and residential needs for embracing clean energy in Florida and cost-effectively expanding the Sunshine State's renewable energy footprint," said Tim Center, executive director of Tallahassee-based, Sustainable Florida. "This initiative chalks up major wins for Florida's environment and sustainability."

Finally, throughout the report, IDTechEx identify and assess the progress made by different companies and leading research institutes in developing barrier film or TFE technologies. This enables you to develop a solid understanding of the value chain.

Report Overview

It took a decade and half to enable the first commercial products using a flexible barrier or thin film encapsulation technologies. Contrary to some assumptions however, this success does not mean that the question of barrier technology is forever settled. Indeed, there is still much work to do to render flexible barrier technology a ubiquitous, widely-available, and low-cost component in devices of all sizes, sensitivity levels, flexibility degrees, and so on.

Technology View

  • Multilayer barrier (MLB) films: Many companies are developing a variant of this approach in which multiple pairs of inorganic-organic materials are deposited. These companies differ in terms of the materials they have chosen, the processes they have developed and the production and commercial readiness levels they have reached. Many such companies have had to pioneer solutions to overcome the considerable challenges in R2R production of MLB films. MLB films are today in a challenging market spot: displays, for now, have switched to inline whereas other target markets are still in the making. Some consider that they might go obsolete before ever seeing market daylight. IDTechEx Research, however, asses that the future remains attractive, particularly as low-cost and large-area solutions.
  • Inline thin film encapsulation: This is an evolution of the MLB approach. Here, the multilayer is formed inline directly and conformally over the device. As such, there is no additional substrate and adhesive, leading to thin devices. Here, the challenge is lowering TACT time and boosting yield. The latter is key because defects waste not just the film, but the entire device. Inline TFE is already commercial since around 2014 on rigid plastic displays. It is however now preparing to enable the transition to flexible/bendable devices. To do this, the materials and processes have had to evolve, reducing layer numbers, improving film quality, and minimising built-in stress. These evolutions must continue to reduce bending radius, to migrate to larger devices, and to accept direct in-cell touch layers.
  • Atomic layer deposition: Temporal batch ALD already yields single inorganic layers whose intrinsic WVTR exceeding requirements. These processes are however slow and unproductive since half-cycles are time separated. Today, many are developing roll-to-roll spatial ALD in which half cycles are separated in space. These promise to yield high performance thin films without compromising TACT time. This is a developing technology frontier where multiple pioneering challenges with machine and process designs are yet to be overcome. Despite this, s-ALD will remain a strong technology contender either as a hybrid in an MLB structure or as a stand-alone layer.
  • Flexible glass: This technology promises excellent barrier performance, high temperature processing and chemical stability. It is however not as flexible as others and remains difficult to handle given that it can shatter, a major problem in vacuum systems. Significant progress is however being made in terms of supressing stress and improving handling. Questions about final cost and volume availability also still hang over this technology which was first introduced to the market almost a decade ago. Despite this, IDTechEx's assessment is that patient development with a long-term strategy will ultimately bring major success, positioning flexible glass as a high-performance substrate-and-barrier-in-one choice.

Application View

Displays: First major success for inline TFE came around 2014 when it was used in rigid plastic OLED phones. This technology is now being readied for bendable displays too. Barrier Films and Thin Film Encapsulation for Flexible and/or Organic Electronics 2019-2029 forecasts the market for barrier technologies in plastic and flexible OLED displays. This is a significant market. Indeed, flexible displays are finally on the cusp of commercialization, likely creating a long-lasting new technology paradigm.

How large will these markets be in sqm and value terms? Inline TFE will dominate in flexible small-sized devices but can it transition to large-area screens? And importantly how will the inline TFE technology itself adapt in terms of materials and processes for top and bottom barriers?

  • Quantum dot displays: Quantum dot (QD) enhancement films are a commercial success. Their main competitor- edge optic QD- is basically obsolete. In addition, a transition away from toxic Cd based QDs has taken place, thus lifting the legislative cloud of uncertainty from over the industry.But many questions abound: will continued improvements in QD air stability relax barrier performance requirements, thus shrinking the market in value terms? QD displays will grow but can film-type integration keep its monopoly, or will it be replaced by other approaches such as color filter or on-chip type QDs? In total, how large will the market be in sqm and value terms? Who are the key players today?
  • OLED lighting: The challenges facing OLED lighting are significant: large area, high brightness and long life organic devices with low defect tolerance. Furthermore, its rival technology, inorganic LEDs, arrived first and established a challenging price and performance market reference. Despite this OLED lighting is still making progress. Its scale up, in sheet-to-sheet (S2S) evaporated production, has reached Gen5 level. Factory investment in wide-format R2R production has also been made some years ago.But given the challenges, will OLED lighting ever be commercialized? If so, what is the likely market size in short-, medium- and long-terms? Given the cost and size requirements, which barrier technologies are being used now and which will win in the future? Who are the key players today?Organic photovoltaics (OPVs): OPVs long had a seductive value proposition but reality has been harsher so far. The first companies fanned the flames of hype to raise funds but struggled to raise efficiency and cut costs. In the process, they made many mistakes such as basing their production on an existing large-sized printer that could not be adopted and optimized. In parallel, others took the patient approach of spending time to learn to process on pilot sized machine- be it solution processing or R2R evaporation- before recently embarking on scale-up which entails the development of custom equipment.What is the past, present and future of OPV technology? Will OPVs ever become a commercial reality? If so, how large the market for barriers is likely to become? Who are the current players today and what is their production set-up? What barrier technology will win and what will be its market size?
  • Others: There are several other applications of flexible barrier films including other flexible photovoltaics such as CIGS and flexible electrophoretic displays. These applications have very different requirements to displays and lighting, and such as such will require different barrier solutions. Read Barrier Films and Thin Film Encapsulation for Flexible and/or Organic Electronics 2019-2029 to learn about the status of these applications and understand barrier uses/trends.
