Somalia: Energy firm tackles solar power transition

first_imgFeatured image: Stock Read more on:GeneratorsSomalia Low carbon, solar future could increase jobs in the future – SAPVIA Beco provides electricity in the cities of Mogadishu, Balad, Jowhar, Afgooye, Elasha, Kismayu, Barawe and Marka. With the return of peace to the country, the electricity supply is provided by private companies. Join the discussions on Power Strategy at Future Energy East Africa conference. Click here to register to attend or for more information about the event. BRICS Potential solar and wind market in Somalia A solar photovoltaic power plant recently commissioned by BECO is now operational in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. Pending the expansion of the solar power plant by 2022, the utility will continue to rely on its power generators to supply the Somali capital. A recent study by the African Development Bank (AfDB) estimates that Somalia has the highest renewable resource potential of all African nations, particularly in terms of onshore wind power, and that it could produce between 30,000 and 45,000MW. According to the US Agency for International Development (USAID), Somalia has an installed capacity of about 106MW, and the majority of power companies to date rely on diesel generators for electricity generation. An added benefit is the reduction of CO2 emissions of the many diesel-powered generators it operates.

Watch my short weekly video on our YouTube channel ESIAfricaTV and speak with me on what has your attention. AFD and Eskom commit to a competitive electricity sector The Mogadishu solar photovoltaic power plant has a capacity of 8MWp, which the company plans to increase to 100MWp, with an investment of $40 million. Sign up for the ESI Africa newsletter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR BECO’s facilities provide a total of 35MW, compared to an estimated demand of 200MW. Somalia does not have a national electricity grid, which collapsed at the start of the civil war in 1991. According to BECO, the impact of the solar power plant is already being felt. However, the company’s chief engineer, Mohamud Farah pointed out: “Unless we have batteries to store electricity, we can’t stop using fossil fuels, and the cost per kilowatt-hour when we get to 100MWp will still depend on batteries.” Generation Through this project, BECO, Somalia’s main electricity supplier, originally aimed to reduce the costs involved in importing fossil fuels for electricity production. Solar energy could potentially generate a surplus of 2,000kWh/m2. According to the World Bank’s 2018 report, more than 64% of the population has no access to electricity.

Far-right AfD overtakes Merkel’s conservatives in regional vote

first_imgEven though the economy in the long-depressed state improved in recent years, earning Social Democrat Premier Erwin Sellering high marks, many voters used the election to voice their dissatisfaction with Merkel’s refugee policy by voting for the AfD.Despite the fact that the state has taken in few refugees, polls suggested that the issue was formost in voters’ minds. The result made clear that voters primarily hold Merkel’s conservatives and not the Social Democrats responsible for refugee policies.Exit polls showed that while most the AfD’s voters did not vote in the last election, it also benefited from many defectors from the Christian Democrats. Also On POLITICO Tipping point for the German far right By Janosch Delcker Angela Merkel: Refugee surge won’t happen again By Cynthia Kroet Even so, the AfD is almost sure to remain in opposition with the Social Democrats and conservatives winning enough support to continue their coalition.The AfD has performed well in other recent regional elections but the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern result, if the projections are confirmed, would mark the first time the party has overtaken Merkel’s conservatives.Many Germans worry about the country’s ability to integrate those who are already here.The result in Meck-Pomm, as locals refer to their region, is a particualr blow to Merkel whose Bundestag constituency is located in the state, and who grew up nearby. If the result holds, it would be the third-worst showing for the Christian Democrats since World War Two.Though the number of refugees arriving in Germany has dropped considerably in recent months, many Germans worry about the country’s ability to integrate those who are already here. Those concerns were hit home by a string of recent terror attacks in Germany and neighboring countries, some of which involved refugees.Though all major parties suffered losses in Sunday’s election, the outcome is a particularly worrying sign for Merkel’s conservatives. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the country’s most sparsley-populated state with just 2 percent of Germany’s registered voters, has been governed by a Social Democrat-led grand coaltion with Merkel’s Christian Democrats since 2006. BERLIN — Germany’s anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party surged ahead of Angela Merkel’s conservatives in the northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern on Sunday, a bitter defeat for the chancellor’s party that reflects the deep frustration with her refugee policies.While early projections predicted the Social Democrats would remain the strongest party in the state with about 30 percent of the vote, the AfD — running in the state for the first time — garnered 21 percent, well ahead of Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) with 19 percent.“This is an excellent result that we couldn’t have dreamed of before,” said Leif-Erik Holm, the AfD’s lead candidate.last_img read more

Odell Beckham Jr. frustrated he’s not helping the Browns win

first_img Jets’ Jamal Adams wins fine appeal for hit on Browns’ Baker Mayfield Richard Sherman rips Baker Mayfield over handshake snub, but was there a snub? “I hate losing, period,” Beckham said Thursday, via ESPN. “Any time we lose and I don’t feel like I did anything to help win the game, I’m gonna be frustrated. That’s just the bottom line. I’m a winner in my heart and I hate losing.”Beckham has four catches for 47 yards over his last two games which is the lowest output in that span during his six-year NFL career. Related News There are more reasons for the Browns’ struggles, but these two were supposed to be part of Cleveland’s resurgence, not an example of why the team isn’t playing well.There is still plenty of time left in the season, but with a string of tough games coming up against tough defenses in the Seahawks, Patriots and Broncos, the Browns are at a critical point on the year. While it would be understandable to lose at least a couple of their next three games, Beckham and Mayfield know they have to pick it up and the wide receiver is aching to impact a game.”I just want to help. I was brought here to help. I felt like I was brought here to help this team win. That’s all I want to do,” Beckham said. “If it has to be handoffs, it’s whatever. Just finding ways to have successful plays, not just get me the ball to appease me or anything like that. It’s about having success within the game and within the team.”​ Odell Beckham Jr. is frustrated he’s not helping the Browns win.Yes, he’s also frustrated he’s not getting the ball more and that Cleveland is 2-3 on the season, but most of all, he just wants to make a positive impact on the team.center_img Opponents ‘want a piece of’ Baker Mayfield, Browns lineman says Baker Mayfield understands his situation.”He’s frustrated when he is not getting the ball and we’re losing. Why not be? He feels like he could help us win if we get the ball in his hands,” Mayfield said. “You can’t blame him. He’s one of the best receivers in the league, and when he’s not getting the ball, he always has it in the back of his mind of, ‘What if I did get the ball and changed this game?’ “The Browns were a popular pick to win the AFC North this season. But through five games, Mayfield is completing just 55.9 percent of his passes and Beckham has just one 100-yard receiving game to go with one touchdown.
