Latest Recognition of the Company’s Environmental, Social and Governance Efforts

"Our inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index list for 11 straight years validates our efforts to provide a sustainable future for the customers and communities we serve"

(Oct. 18, 2018 – Newark, N.J.) Public Service Enterprise Group’s recent inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) for North America for the 11th year in a row is the latest confirmation of the company’s commitment to sustainable and ethical practices. Customers, employees and investors are increasingly demanding that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors guide how a company conducts business.

 The DJSI recognizes forward-thinking companies based on an appraisal of the company’s strategy, management and performance in dealing with opportunities and risks deriving from environmental, social and governance factors. The DJSI tracks the performance of the 600 largest U.S. and Canadian companies in the S&P Global Broad Market Index and recognizes the top 20 percent that lead the field in terms of sustainability. PSEG was one of six U.S. utility companies selected for the list.

 “Our inclusion on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index list for 11 straight years validates our efforts to provide a sustainable future for the customers and communities we serve,” said Ralph Izzo, PSEG’s chairman, president and CEO. “Sustainability is at the center of PSEG’s vision and operations, driving innovation and investment as we move toward a clean energy future. This recognition reflects the dedication of PSEG’s 13,000 employees to continuously pursue more sustainable ways to provide clean, affordable and reliable energy.”

 The DJSI assessment is conducted each year by sustainability investment specialist RobecoSAM. It is based on a comprehensive review of environmental performance, innovation management, corporate governance, risk management, stakeholder engagement, and talent attraction and retention.

Additional Recognition

PSEG’s dedication to ESG practices has been acknowledged by a range of independent organizations:

In addition to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, PSEG was also named to the America’s Best Employers List by Forbes magazine for 2018. Forbes worked with research firm Statista to compile the definitive list of the best employers in America. Statista surveyed 30,000 American workers to gather opinions of their employers.

PSEG was included on FORTUNE’s 2017 List of Most Admired Companies, ranking 8th among electric and gas companies in the United States.

Public Service Electric & Gas Co. (PSE&G) also was named 2017 Investor Owned Utility of the Year by the Smart Electric Power Alliance for its efforts to add solar power to New Jersey’s energy mix. PSE&G was recognized for building solar farms on landfills and brownfields through its Solar 4 All program.

Moving Forward to a Sustainable Energy Future

As an example of the company’s commitment to providing sustainable energy, PSE&G recently proposed a Clean Energy Future program. The proposal includes energy efficiency, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, battery storage and smart meter initiatives. If approved as proposed, the programs are expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 40 million tons over the lifetime of the programs, equivalent to removing about 380,000 cars annually by 2025, growing to about 800,000 cars annually by 2035. The centerpiece of the proposal is a suite of energy efficiency programs, which would save enough electricity to power 5.5 million homes annually and save enough natural gas to supply 675,000 homes per year.

To better serve its customers and investors, PSEG will be incorporating the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) Version 1 environmental, social, governance and sustainability-related (ESG/sustainability) reporting template into its annual ESG reporting. This is part of an ongoing EEI-led initiative to help provide the financial community with more uniform and consistent ESG/sustainability data and information. EEI launched a pilot ESG/sustainability reporting template in December 2017.

CHANGZHOU, Chine, 18 octobre 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited a récemment annoncé que l'entreprise a livré 123 MW de modules photovoltaïques pour un projet de centrale photovoltaïque développé par DTEK, la plus grande société énergétique privée en Ukraine. Une fois terminé, le projet deviendra la plus grande installation d'énergie photovoltaïque à l'échelle locale et la plus grande centrale photovoltaïque en Europe.

Situé à proximité de Nikopol, dans l'oblast de Dnipropetrovsk dans le centre de l'Ukraine, le projet a une capacité prévue de 246 MW et sera capable de produire 280 millions de kWh d'énergie solaire par an et se classera parmi les trois premiers fournisseurs de ce type en Europe. La centrale, pour laquelle China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) sert d'entrepreneur, devrait être terminée début 2019 et être connectée au réseau en mars. À partir de ce moment, la centrale sera en mesure de garantir une alimentation en électricité pour 100 000 foyers en Ukraine et de réduire les émissions de dioxyde de carbone de plus de 300 000 tonnes par an.

Actuellement, l'approvisionnement énergétique de l'Ukraine repose principalement sur les combustibles fossiles et l'énergie nucléaire, l'énergie renouvelable représentant une très faible proportion du total. Afin de diversifier ses sources d'énergie, le gouvernement ukrainien a amorcé une stratégie de développement national de l'énergie, qui vise à accroître la capacité installée totale des énergies renouvelables à 5 GW d'ici 2020.

Yin Rongfang, vice-président directeur de Trina Solar, a déclaré : « Tandis que la technologie continue de progresser, le photovoltaïque solaire comme source d'énergie atteindra progressivement la parité sur le réseau. Dans le même temps, la demande dans les marchés émergents est en hausse. Cette année, Trina Solar a, à plusieurs reprises, rapporté de bonnes nouvelles en provenance des marchés émergents, dont l'Ukraine et le Vietnam, et nous sommes très heureux d'avoir été reconnus par les clients locaux et qu'ils nous aient fait confiance. En tant que société photovoltaïque internationale qui a maintenu un développement stable à long terme, Trina Solar continuera de promouvoir l'application et l'adoption de l'énergie propre dans le monde entier. »

En tant que fournisseur mondial de premier plan de solutions d'énergie solaire intégrées, Trina Solar a construit une solide équipe de ventes et d'exploitation pour l'international avec des produits vendus à plus de 100 pays. En 2017, les livraisons de modules de Trina Solar dans le monde entier ont dépassé les 9 GW et plus de 60 pour cent de ces modules ont été livrés sur des marchés à l'international.

À propos de Trina Solar Limited

Trina Solar est un fournisseur international de premier plan de solutions complètes pour l'énergie solaire. Fondée en 1997, Trina Solar développe des solutions photovoltaïques intelligentes brevetées pour les grandes centrales électriques, ainsi que des solutions commerciales et résidentielles, des systèmes de stockage d'énergie et des modules photovoltaïques. En tant que premier fournisseur au monde de solutions intégrées d'énergie solaire, Trina Solar a pris l'initiative en évoluant vers une marque du monde de l'énergie de l'IdO (Internet des objets) et s'engage à devenir un leader mondial dans ce nouveau secteur émergent.

MUNICH, October 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

A year after the company's successful first crowdinvesting campaign, the Munich-based mobility provider Sono Motors today announced the start of a second round of financing. The purpose of the campaign is to generate the capital needed for the completion of the series development and manufacturing of the Sion, the first series-produced electric vehicle with solar integration, which is scheduled to go into production in the fourth quarter of 2019.

In the one-week subscription period ahead of today's official campaign launch, which was reserved exclusively for existing investors and backers, there were subscriptions amounting to no less than 5 million euros via crowdinvesting and other channels.

The concept of the current financing round affords retail and institutional investors access to the campaign via various channels and forms of participation. Using a variety of crowdinvesting platforms, investors can participate in the success of the company via either equity or debt capital. Another investment option is via a special fund from the asset managers CAV Partners, who specialize in renewable energies, and the environmental financial services provider Grüne Sachwerte.

"It is our goal to establish a sustainable company. We believe that, together with our community, we can bring about change. This was confirmed already back in 2016 with our first crowdfunding campaign. We therefore want to continue to give the retail investors and early backers, whose financial involvement and trust played a major part in keeping us going over the past two years, the opportunity to benefit from our company's growth by means of crowdinvesting," says Laurin Hahn, CEO and co-founder of Sono Motors.

Another major focus is getting institutional investors on board. Therefore, Sono Motors is engaging in talks with them in the course of the current financing round.

"We have reached some important milestones last year and we succeeded in doubling our enterprise value in next to no time. The funds generated in the current financing round will go toward the finalization of series development and the conclusion of the Sion's validation phase, and will also be used for the crucial next industrialization steps," adds Martin Sabbione, CFO of Sono Motors.

Sono Motors currently has more than 8,000 fee-based vehicle reservations, which would equate to an order volume of around 140 million euros. The company has therefore comfortably exceeded its original target of 5,000 reservations.

In addition to the internal teams of experts being expanded in recent months, the management team was expanded in order to advance the company's development. Thomas Hausch (Nissan, Daimler) assumed the position of COO, while Isa Krupka (Van Eck, STOXX, Dow Jones) was appointed to the management as CCO.

About Sono Motors  

What started out as the garage project of two friends and the vision of a sustainable mobility concept, which was not dependent on fossil fuels, became the innovative and owner-managed automotive company Sono Motors in 2016.

The company now boasts an experienced team of engineers, designers, technicians, and industry experts who are developing and building a forward-looking electric car which is suitable for daily use, with integrated solar cells and innovative mobility services.

The carbon emissions generated during the vehicle's production and manufacturing are entirely offset. The first prototypes were produced in 2017 with the support of renowned investors and crowdfunding, and have since been driven and experienced by more than 13,000 potential customers at test drive road shows. The overwhelming response to the vehicle and mobility concept confirmed the company founders' vision and is turning it into a reality - the electric car Sion will go into series production in 2019.

This customary Japanese finish, which combines hexagonal shapes into groups of three, dates back to ancient times and was often seen on the armor of Bishamonten – a group of warriors that symbolized ultimate strength in battle.

Including premium features such as a diamond-like carbon coating to increase abrasion resistance, as well as titanium that's undergone a deep layer hardening process to render it up to five times tougher than normal, the MRG-G2000R combines Japanese aesthetics with modern technology for a luxurious, tough watch.

Other top-of-the-line finishes include a scratch-resistant sapphire inner crystal coating, G-SHOCK's legendary Multi-Band 6 technology and tough solar technology, as well as Bluetooth connectivity through the G-SHOCK Connected app.

In another first for the brand, the Dura Soft Fluoro-Rubber Band and titanium case are connected via "L/R-Δ Loc" (pronounced "L-R Delta Lock"), which Casio co-developed in partnership with NejiLaw – a company known for "screws that never come loose." Based on an L/R bolt* with two nuts that lock together and spin in opposite directions, L/R-Δ Loc was created specifically for watches as a revolutionary mechanism that prevents screws from coming loose due to vibration and other forces.
*L/R is a registered trademark of NejiLaw Inc.

Each timepiece also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology of:

  • 200M water resistance and shock resistance
  • Solar powered
  • Automatic Date Update
  • Airplane Mode
  • World Time (39 cities + UTC)
  • Super Illuminator LED light
  • Daily alarms
  • Full auto calendar
  • Stopwatch and countdown timer
  • Day/date display
  • 49.8mm case

The MRGG2000R-1A will retail for $2,800 and will be available for purchase starting this November at selected G-SHOCK retailers including Macy's, G-SHOCK Soho Store, and gshock.com.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe's dream of 'creating a watch that never breaks'. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as 'the toughest watch of all time'. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe's mantra "never, never give up." www.gshock.com

The purpose of this company is to accelerate the development of solar photovoltaic self-consumption in France for businesses and authorities.

Reservoir Sun was created, with the approval of the European competition regulation authorities and labour relations organisations, to develop solar photovoltaic self-consumption in France. A structure entirely dedicated to this activity and held in equal shares by ENGIE and GreenYellow, Reservoir Sun will specialise in the segment for solar power plants up to 1 MWc, for businesses and authorities. Objective: 100 MWc per year, or nearly 300 accounts comprising 300 kWc, on average, per project.

This new actor will use the surfaces provided by roofs and car parks to produce local, green energy. 100 million euros will thus be invested annually in the market for medium-capacity facilities. This is the first time for an actor to commit this many resources to companies and authorities in favour of solar self-consumption.

“The Casino Group was the first distributor to invest in developing solar photovoltaic energy. This association with ENGIE is a real booster and shows just how visionary our intrapreneurial project launched ten years ago, called GreenYellow, really was,” says Jean-Charles Naouri, President of the Casino Group.

For Isabelle Kocher, Chief Executive Officer of ENGIE,“the creation of Reservoir Sun is an excellent illustration of our commitment to provide support to all businesses and communities in the energy transition. This project also confirms the new dynamics of development of short energy supply chains, in which the ENGIE group has firmly positioned itself.”

The association of two leading stakeholders in the solar photovoltaic sector
ENGIE (engie.com), the leading producer of solar electricity in France with 1,200 MW of installed capacity, also provides daily support to 45,000 companies, authorities and joint property associations in their energy transition through its Businesses & Authorities entity. In addition to the supply of energy, which for nearly 15 years has included green electricity offers, ENGIE B&A offers its customers a range of offers and services that are environmentally friendly and guarantee a better control of their budget, notably turnkey photovoltaic facilities.

GreenYellow, the leader in self-consumption for the mass retail sector in France, has developed recognised expertise in the photovoltaic market with over 190 MW of facilities developed, constructed and in operation, and more than 1000,000 m² of photovoltaic panels installed. The company is also an expert in the domain of energy efficiency: with more than 1,500 energy performance contracts (EPCs) worldwide, it has forged a solid understanding of the issues of energy optimisation, a determining prerequisite for creating solar self-consumption solutions.

GreenYellow is the leading solar actor in the French self-consumption segment, as demonstrated by the latest results of the calls to tender of France’s Energy Regulation Commission (CRE).

Reservoir Sun’s headquarters are located in Marseille. To give the company a strong local presence and allow it to be as close as possible to its customers, 7 further branches will be opened in Bordeaux, Toulouse, Valence, Montpellier, Avignon, Lyon and Paris. Some 30 employees from GreenYellow, from ENGIE Businesses & Authorities and recruited from external sources will work on the development of this ambitious new actor.

Reservoir Sun will draw on a mixed, innovative team, expert in developing projects for the production of decentralised solar energy and in managing the issues of its future customers, in particular in the public tertiary sector, industry, health, trade and distribution.

About ENGIE

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Media accreditation now is open for the launch from Virginia of Northrop Grumman's 10th commercial resupply services mission to deliver NASA science investigations, supplies and equipment to the International Space Station aboard its Cygnus spacecraft.

Northrop Grumman is targeting liftoff, on its Antares launch vehicle, no earlier than 4:49 a.m. EST Nov. 15 from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport's Pad-0A at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island.

To cover the prelaunch and launch activities at Wallops, international media without U.S. citizenship must apply for credentials by Thursday, Oct. 25. The application deadline for media who are U.S. citizens is Thursday, Nov. 8.

U.S. media also are invited to Wallops to speak with NASA and Northrop Grumman officials about the upcoming mission, and view and photograph the Cygnus spacecraft, at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24. The deadline for accreditation for this opportunity is noon Tuesday, Oct. 23.

Officials available for interviews at this event include:

  • Kathleen Boggs, Systems and Technology Demonstration manager, International Space Station Division, NASA Headquarters
  • Rick Mastracchio, former NASA astronaut and senior director of Operations, Commercial Resupply Services Program at Northrop Grumman
  • Kurt Eberly, Antares vice president at Northrop Grumman

Each resupply mission to the station delivers scientific investigations in the areas of biology and biotechnology, Earth and space science, physical sciences, and technology development and demonstrations.

Highlights of space station research that will be facilitated by research aboard this Cygnus are:

  • An investigation into the complex process of cement solidification to explore how gravity levels like those on the Moon and Mars may potentially affect concrete hardening.
  • Research to develop a mathematical model for how an astronaut's perception of motion, body position and distance to objects changes in space.
  • A test of the first integrated 3D printer and recycler to turn waste plastic materials into high-quality 3D-printer filament to create tools and materials, a key capability for future long-duration space missions beyond low-Earth orbit.

Included in the cargo are investigations that will enable U.S. National Laboratory research, which is managed by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space. They include a physical sciences investigation to evaluate a method for producing fiber optic cable in space and astrophysics research to examine the formation of chondrules, some of the oldest material in the solar system.

Cargo resupply from U.S. companies ensures a national capability to deliver critical science research to the space station, significantly increasing NASA's ability to conduct new investigations at the only laboratory in space.

MILÁN, October 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

  • La European Society of Endocrinology se reúne con los miembros del Parlamento de Europa para debatir acerca del impacto socio-económico de la osteoporosis en Europa 

En Bruselas, la European Society of Endocrinology ha reunido a 10 miembros del Parlamento de Europa, proponiendo una agenda compartida para limitar el impacto socio-económico de la osteoporosis en Europa.

Afrontar la hipovitaminosis D, la diagnosis primaria de fracturas vertebrales, el acceso y la adherencia a las terapias son los puntos clave en los que hay que trabajar.

     (Logo: https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/770911/The_European_Society_of_Endocrinology_Logo.jpg )

Afectando a más de la mitad de la población de más de 80 años, la osteoporosis representa una emergencia en términos de relevancia social y costes económicos y del cuidado de la salud. La European Society of Endocrinology se agarra a la oportunidad que ofrece el Día Mundial de la Osteoporosis para cumplir con las autoridades europeas y establecer una proposición de políticas de cuidado de salud compartidas que podrían producir beneficios a gran escala y mejorar la salud de las personas y los presupuestos de los estados.

"Las fracturas por fragilidad presentan un importante impacto económico. Los costes directos (hospitalizaciones) solo en Italia contabilizan entorno a los 9.000 millones de euros. Hay que añadir 1.000 millones más de costes indirectos, como los costes de rehabilitación y las pérdidas debidas a la ausencia del trabajo. Encontramos además la misma situación en el resto de los estados de la UE - afirmó el profesor Andrea Giustina, profesor de Endocrinología del San Raffaele Hospital de Milán y director general electo de la European Society of Endocrinology - el documento de tres puntos que estableceremos para los miembros del PE propone algunas medidas de coste contenido de prácticas clínicas destinadas a limitar los costes y reducir de forma drástica la incidencia de la enfermedad".

El documento preparado por la ESE se divide en tres puntos:

  • Afrontar la hipovitaminosis D: la mayor parte de los habitantes de Europa (principalmente del sur de Europa) muestran una deficiencia de la vitamina D, la hormona sintetizada por la piel humana a través de la exposición de la luz solar, esencial para la mineralización de los huesos. Cuando se demuestra una deficiencia de la vitamina D, se necesita de una suplementación por medio de colecalciferol.
  • Diagnosis primaria de fracturas vertebrales: a menudo infradiagnosticadas, y caracterizadas por síntomas sin dolor o no específicos, y por ello diagnosticadas de forma tardía, las fracturas vertebrales representan un importante factor de riesgo para las fracturas posteriores de columna vertebral y de fémur. Además de la prevención primaria y secundaria, es esencial promover una formación para la prevención terciaria y la diagnosis a tiempo con la identificación morfométrica de las fracturas vertebrales convirtiéndose en un punto clave para una política destinada a la reducción de los eventos de poli-fractura además de aumentar los costes directos e indirectos.
  • Acceso y adherencia a las terapias: estudios recientes han demostrado que más del 50% de las mujeres con osteoporosis no comienzan el tratamiento farmacológico contra la osteoporosis, y que sólo un pequeño porcentaje de las que se someten a este tratamiento siguen con el tratamiento durante más de 1 año. Según la ESE, es vital comenzar con las políticas de información para médicos y población en general con el fin de conseguir ayudar a disponer de un acceso adecuado a los tratamientos y la adherencia a las terapias.

"Los endocrinólogos de Europa desean que esta agenda de intervenciones pueda disponer del consentimiento más amplio entre las instituciones, y están preparados para ayudar con el objetivo de encontrar en la práctica a los instrumentos más eficaces de implementación de la intervención de los casos más críticos mencionados. También se compromete a sí mismo a verificar la ejecución y eficacia de los instrumentos mencionados a partir de 12 meses", concluyó Giustina.
