CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eguana Technologies (TSX.V: EGT) (OTCQB: EGTYF) and CED Greentech Orange County are pleased to announce immediate availability of the Evolve residential energy storage system. Initial product shipments, technical training and product certification have been scheduled to take place in the current month.  

“California is a mature solar market with an experienced base of contractors who are best addressed through standard distribution channels. Our initial outreach to solar specific contractors has been very positive, the addition CED Greentech opens additional channel opportunities and product availability,” said Livio Filice, Eguana’s Director of Residential Sales, North America. Filice added “with the addition of CED Greentech in Southern California, the Evolve system is now available in every key regional solar PV market in North America.”

“A growing number of our partners want to offer an easy to install, user-friendly and cost-competitive residential energy storage system, Eguana’s Evolve checked all the boxes,” stated Drew Boatman, Manager, CED Greentech OC. Boatman noted, “we are excited to be the first major distributor in Southern California to bring the product to local contractors and we look forward to working with the Eguana team.”

Rising interest in residential energy storage across 2018, the Solar Power International tradeshow taking place in Anaheim later this month, and the coming annual push for project completions in Q4 make this a critical time to establish broad based coverage of the nation’s leading solar market. Through the partnership with CED Greentech OC, Eguana can maximize adoption of the Evolve product in the southern California market and lay the foundation to expand distribution to other CED Greentech branches through 2019. 

Evolve energy storage systems are immediately available for purchase from CED Greentech.

They can help show the world that Bangladesh is serious about climate mitigation, boosting the country’s influence in international negotiations and helping it to access financing and technology promised during the COP-21. They can play a role in nudging Bangladesh’s growth to a lower carbon and cleaner path, helping to make it more sustainable and improving environmental (and health) conditions for its citizens. They can help to raise additional resources – up to 1 percent of GDP – for social and economic development, including infrastructure investment. Some of the additional resources can be used to reduce taxes on labor or firms. Carbon taxes are much simpler to implement than most other taxes and most fuel costs would increase by only a few Taka per liter. At the same time, implementation needs to be done well to reduce opposition and win over firms and citizens. But Bangladesh can learn how other countries have succeeded. This Policy Note and accompanying Brief summarizes why carbon taxes make sense for Bangladesh and how to succeed.  See Less -

PRESS RELEASE

(Oslo/New Delhi, 4 September 2018) Statkraft has acquired the 100 MW Tidong hydropower project in Himachal Pradesh, India. Approximately 60 per cent of the project works have been constructed so far.

The Tidong hydropower project is located on Tidong River, a tributary of Sutlej River, in the state of Himachal Pradesh (HP), in north-western India. The planned installed capacity is 100 MW, although there is a possibility for further expansion that will be evaluated. The acquisition is in line with Statkraft's strategy to develop renewable energy generation, building on Statkraft's more than 120 years of hydropower experience.

India's electricity demand is among the fastest growing in the world. Total electricity consumption was 1,210 TWh in 2017, with a demand growth of 6.5 per cent per year.  Statkraft has extensive industrial experience from hydropower in India, with a 49 per cent shareholding in two hydropower assets in operation in Himachal Pradesh: Malana (108 MW/340 GWh) and Allain Duhangan (192 MW/800 GWh). Recently Statkraft has also gained experience in solar and direct sales to business customers.

"We are very pleased to announce this deal, which positions Statkraft well for further growth in India, a core market for Statkraft", says Statkraft's Executive Vice President Jürgen Tzschoppe.

The Tidong project is approximately 60 per cent complete. Construction works will resume immediately after the closing of the transaction. The remaining construction works are expected to be completed in approximately two years.

In preparation of the construction phase, special attention has been given to health and safety measures. This is one of the major execution risks for projects in remote mountainous regions. The Tidong project management team, where most of the key resources have experience from recent Statkraft construction projects, is handpicked to manage this risk, and have strengthened the project organization with additional HSE expertise.

The transaction is an acquisition of 100 per cent of the shares in NSL Tidong Power Generation Private Limited.

About Statkraft
Statkraft is a leading company in hydropower internationally and Europe's largest generator of renewable energy. The Group produces hydropower, wind power, solar power, gas-fired power and supplies district heating. Statkraft is a global company in energy market operations. Statkraft has 3500 employees in 16 countries.

Company announcement 8/2018

European Energy delivered a Q2 result in line with expectations and passed the 1 GW installed capacity milestone in the quarter.

European Energy posted a net profit before tax of EUR 0.9 million in the first half of 2018, a decrease from EUR 5.5 million in the first half of 2017. Revenue for the first half of the year was EUR 18.6 million, compared to EUR 32.2 the previous year. For the second quarter 2018, European Energy had a loss before tax of EUR 1.2 million, while EBITDA reached EUR 1.1 million, this is compared to Profit before tax EUR 1.1 million and EBITDA EUR 2.8 million in second quarter of 2017. 

The result reflects a continuation of growth in development and construction, while the majority of the divestments of projects is expected later in 2018. The result is in the line with guidance released by European Energy for the full year. 

The timing of the close of each individual sale of energy farms has great impact on the Groups results. European Energy has successfully signed a sale of 39 MW after the end of second quarter. Currently there are active sales processes covering projects with an accumulated capacity of 250 MW, in comparison the equivalent figure was 160 MW after first half of 2017.

Knud Erik Andersen, Chief Executive Officer said:

"We are satisfied with our half year results. The positive momentum in our
development and construction activities continued in our key markets as well as new markets. The planned divestment of our solar and wind farms also progressed according to plan. We experience high interest among institutional investors for our projects and we expect to announce further sales in the second half of the year. We appreciate the momentum we have built and expect the second half of 2018 to be very busy. ”  

European Energy also passed a milestone in the second quarter of 2018, namely one gigawatt of constructed capacity. Since the company was founded in 2004, European Energy has now constructed more than one gigawatt of green power generation capacity, in addition European Energy provide asset management for more than one gigawatt of green power.

We are proud of this achievement. It is a nice milestone to pass, but the technology has developed so fast the past few years, that while we needed 14 years to reach the first GW, we expect the second gigawatt to be constructed within two years.” said Knud Erik Andersen.

During the second quarter of 2018, eight solar parks in Denmark with a total capacity of 70 MW was grid connected. 164 MW wind and solar power is under construction and another 280 MW are ready to build.  

The outlook for the year is unchanged at a profit before tax of EUR 26 – 28 million.
