Santander launches $2bn renewable energy fund

first_imgSantander launches $2bn renewable energy fundSpanish lender partners with two of Canada’s largest pension funds to launch London-headquartered Cubico Sustainable Investment, a joint fund for renewable energy projects. May 28, 2015 Ian Clover Installations Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share Leading Spanish lender Santander has collaborated with two of Canada’s biggest pension funds on the creation of a new $2 billion renewable energy fund that has been launched today in London, England. Jointly owned by Santander, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan and the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments), Cubico Sustainable Investments is an investment vehicle for Santander’s clean energy efforts. Nineteen solar and wind assets, either completed or in the development phase and amounting to 1.4 GW, have been transferred by Santander into the fund, which will also steer monies towards water infrastructure projects. Assets contained within the portfolio are located in the U.K., Brazil, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Uruguay. “We have already built a strong pipeline of attractive assets to add to the platform,” confirmed Cubico’s new chief executive and former Santander executive Marcos Sebares. Cubico Sustainable Investments will be owned equally by all three investors, and already has “significant capital to invest”, according to a statement. Banco Santander S.A. senior executive vice president Juan Andres Yanes added that the creation of Cubico was the culmination of almost two years of focused work that had begun in 2013 with the identification of the sale opportunity and the preferred partners. “We are pleased to start this new joint venture with Teachers’ and PSP Investments, two of the best-known pension funds in infrastructure investment,” he said. “We are confident that this venture represents a significant milestone for Santander to increase its footprint in the renewable and water infrastructure industry.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

(Photo by Carla Wesley) Peebles baseball opens season with Saturday splitApril 2, 2021Mark CarpenterSports0center_img By Mark CarpenterThe sailing hasn’t been smooth in recent seasons for the baseball squads at Peebles High Schools, but a lot of observers think that the 2021 version of Indian baseball could be one that turns that corner. Coach Kenny Dick’s squad is a nice mix of youth and experience that could spring a few surprises before the spring season is over.The 2021 Indians made their first regular season appearance on Saturday, March 27, opening their season on the road with a doubleheader at Northwest High School, the first game with the host Mohawks, and the second with the Panthers of Portsmouth Clay.In game one, the Indians sent Zane Porter to the mound and he performed admirably. tossing 4 2/3 innings, with reliever Easton Wesley finishing up the final 2 1/3 as the Indians downed Northwest 6-1. Not only was Porter proficient on the mound, he was impressive at the plate, going 4 for 4 to lead the Peebles offense. In the opening game win, the Indians also got a two-hit effort from senior Dawson Mills, with Porter being the winning pitcher.Game two with Clay was an offensive battle, with the Panthers eventually coming out on top 12-10, mainly on the strength of a seven-run sixth inning outburst.The Indians used three pitchers in the loss, Franklin Myers got the start, with Mills entering in the fourth, and then handing the ball over to Wesley with two on an no outs in the sixth, an inning where three Peebles errors opened the flood gates for the Clay offense to take advantage.Eight different players in the Peebles lineup got base hits in the loss,- Wyatt Cluxton, Brock Johnson, Porter, Myers, Wesley, Mills, Gage Grooms, and Elijah Jones.The 1-1 Indians were back on the diamond on Tuesday, March 30, facing a tough test in their Southern Hills Athletic Conference opener, as they played host to one of the conference’s preseason favorites, the Eastern Brown Warriors. On Thursday, April 1, the Indians will be out of conference again with a road trip to Piketon. Top Searches Top Searches MarkPeeblesIndians last_img read more

Beat Mändli Wins Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Washington

first_img Email* SIGN UP Beat Mändli’s first trip to the Washington International Horse Show proved resoundingly successful when he topped a thrilling 11-horse jump-off with Dsarie to win the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Washington in the heart of the United States’ capital.Mändli (SUI) and Grand Road Partners’ 9-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare blitzed a top class field which included the top two ranked riders in the world, Kent Farrington (USA) and McLain Ward (USA). Ward finished second with HH Callas, less than three-tenths of a second off the winning time of 32.07 seconds (32.30). Catherine Tyree (USA) and Enjoy Louis finished third, turning in a career-best finish in this World Cup qualifying competition.“I feel great! Everything worked out better than I was thinking at the start of the week. I’m just super happy for the horse and for the whole team. It was great night for me,” said Mändli.The indoor track designed by Alan Wade saw 11 of the 26 competitors jump cleanly in the first round, making for an incredibly competitive and fast-paced jump-off. Despite it being his mount’s World Cup qualifier debut, Mändli was confident enough to take risks over the shortened course, confirming the championship potential he sees in Dsarie.“I have had her for four years now, and I really think she’s a superstar,” he said. “She can go very far also doing some championships, I hope. She’s only nine years old, and there’s nothing she can’t do. So, I’m very happy to have her.”The North American League held a double-header on October 28, 2017, with Isabelle Lapierre earning her second victory of the league this season in Calgary (CAN) on the west coast. The east coast sub league continues in Lexington (USA) on November 4, 2017.Get full results here.

Huge crowd turns out for Hollywood march

iStock/ChiccoDodiFCBy: JON HAWORTH, ELLA TORRES and MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) —  The death of George Floyd, a black man who died on Memorial Day after he was pinned down by a white Minnesota police officer, has sparked outrage and protests in Minneapolis, across the United States and around the world.Second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter charges have been filed against Derek Chauvin, the ex-officer who prosecutors say held his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. The three other officers have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting manslaughter. All four officers have been fired.Governors in 32 states have activated more than 32,400 members of the National Guard.This is how the news unfolded on Sunday. All times Eastern:10:56 p.m.: Hollywood march draws upwards of 20,000Sunday’s protest march in Hollywood drew an estimated 20,000 demonstrators, according to aerial footage from Los Angeles ABC station KABC-TV.As part of the protest, a Black Lives Matter flag flew atop Hollywood’s iconic Capitol Records building.In New York City, demonstrations extended into the evening after authorities lifted the curfew that had been in effect.Largely peaceful protests occurred in Manhattan’s Union Square, Washington Square Park and Columbus Circle, as well as locations throughout Brooklyn.Protests continued in Boston, Chicago, Miami and Pittsburgh, among other cities.8:20 p.m.: Murder charges filed in death of St. Louis police chiefA man has been charged with murder in the death of David Dorn, a police chief found fatally shot outside a St. Louis pawn shop that was looted during protests last week.Stephan Cannon, 24, was charged with first-degree murder, along with six other charges, Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner announced.No bond was allowed.Dorn retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007 and had been serving as police chief of Moline Acres, Missouri, since 2008. He was killed on June 2 when he apparently tried to stop the looting of Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry.The investigation recovered footage from the shop and surrounding businesses, Gardner said.Additional charges included first-degree robbery and burglary, three counts of armed criminal action, and unlawful possession of a firearm.6:58 p.m.: Minneapolis City Council wants to replace police departmentMinneapolis City Council members have announced their intent to disband the city’s police department in favor of a more community-oriented agency.The announcement came at a community meeting held by Black Visions and Reclaim the Block, two grassroots organizations that have been calling on the city council to divest from the police department since 2018.“Our commitment is to end our city’s toxic relationship with the Minneapolis Police Department, to end policing as we know it and to recreate systems of public safety that actually keep us safe,” City Council President Lisa Bender said at a rally Sunday afternoon.Binder said that “it is clear that our system of policing is not keeping communities safe. Our efforts at incremental reform have failed.”The veto-proof majority group said it wants to shift toward a community-led public safety system, though at the moment the hurdles to disbanding the police are unclear.After Sunday’s meeting, the city council is expected to begin creating a transition plan away from the MPD, in consultation with Minneapolis residents as well as organizers and experts in the community and nationwide.“It shouldn’t have taken so much death to get us here,” said Black Visions Director Kandace Montgomery. “George Floyd should not have been murdered for so many people to wake up. It shouldn’t have taken young black folks risking their lives in these streets, over and over. I want to honor all of the organizers and communities who, for generations, have dreamed and worked to make this day happen.”Mayor Jacob Frey was booed out of a protest Saturday after he said he did not support abolishing the police department, as covered in the 11:14 p.m. entry below.3:55 p.m.: Mural of former Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo painted overAnother memorial to former Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo has been removed.A mural depicting the former police commissioner in the city’s Italian Market was painted over on Sunday morning.The mural, who many saw as a symbol of police brutality, had been defaced several times in recent years. Mural Arts Philadelphia said it painted over the mural with the consent of the wall owner.“We know that the removal of this mural does not erase painful memories and are deeply apologetic for the amount of grief it has caused,” the organization said in a statement on Sunday. “We believe this is a step in the right direction and hope to aid in healing our city through the power of thoughtful and inclusive public art.”The organization said it plans to create a new mural with input from the community.Last week, a statue of Rizzo near City Hall was removed following vandalism amid the city’s protests. 1:33 p.m.: National Guard prepares to leave Los AngelesThe National Guard is leaving Los Angeles after their presence was requested to handle protests.The National Guard was activated in Los Angeles and neighboring communities on May 30 after a request from Gov. Gavin Newsom. He had proclaimed a statement of emergency in Los Angeles County amid the protests.12:48 p.m.: NYC mayor says NYPD funds will be shifted to youth, social servicesNew York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a wave of police reforms, including shifting funds from the police department to youth and social services.The other measures include reforming 50-A, the state law that keeps police behavior from public scrutiny; move vendor enforcement out of the police; and bring community voices into the senior level of the police.“The details will be worked out in the budget process in the weeks ahead. But I want people to understand that we are committed to shifting resources to ensure that the focus is on our young people,” de Blasio said.A summary of the New York City budget plan showed that for the 2021 fiscal year, the police department had a budget of $5.6 billion, while the Dept. of Youth and Community Development had a budget of $598 million. The summary showed that the Dept. of Social Services budget for the 2021 fiscal year was $9.6 billion.The mayor also highlighted Saturday’s tens of thousands of peaceful protesters who took to the streets across the city.12:18 p.m.: Protesters in UK tear down statue of 17th century slave traderProtesters against systemic racism in Bristol, United Kingdom, tore down a statue of 17th century slave trader Edward Colston. The protests in the United Kingdom are in response to protests that have erupted in the United States.Demonstrators were seen pulling down the statue with a rope before jumping on it.The statue was then dragged through the streets of Bristol, according to local media reports, and eventually tossed in the river.Historian David Olusoga said that the problem with the statue has long been “that it has not been seen as a problem.” It was erected in 1895, nearly two centuries after he died in 1721.“What it shows is that 17th century London and Bristol were involved in the slave trade, but that 19th century Bristol didn’t care that it was honoring a man who had been involved in the slave trade,” Olusoga told the BBC. “This is a city that is 14% BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) with a statue that of somebody who was not just a slave trader, he was involved in the Royal Africa Company, the company that trafficked more people into slavery than any in British history.”Colston’s company transported more than 100,000 slaves from West Africa to the Caribbean and the Americas between 1672 and 1689, according to the BBC.However, it was only until the 1990s that Colston’s involvement in the slave trade, the source of much of the money which he gave to Bristol, gained more publicity, according to Historic England, a body of the British Government.Statues that symbolize the Confederacy, for many a symbol of racism and oppression, in the U.S. have also come down in the wake of the protests that are spreading worldwide.10:07 a.m.: Trump says National Guard will withdraw from DCPresident Donald Trump tweeted that the National Guard will begin to withdraw from Washington, D.C. “now that everything is under perfect control.”“I have just given an order for our National Guard to start the process of withdrawing from Washington, D.C., now that everything is under perfect control. They will be going home, but can quickly return, if needed. Far fewer protesters showed up last night than anticipated!” Trump tweeted.However, thousands of protesters still stepped out in Washington, D.C. on Saturday.Portland, Oregon, experienced another evening of protests and demonstrations that began much the same as the last several nights with separate groups of demonstrators taking to the streets.“At about 10:50 p.m. an unlawful assembly was declared,” the Portland Police Department said in a statement. “The crowd was given ample opportunity to disperse and were warned if they did not do so, they were subject to arrest or force. Officers began dispersing the crowd just after 11:30 p.m. Portland Police, assisted by outside agency mutual aid partners, arrested at least 50 subjects for criminal activity.”Information on arrests is still being compiled and an updated release will be published when this information becomes available.7:13 a.m.: NYC mayor lifts curfewNew York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has lifted the curfew that had been imposed on the city amid the protests and demonstrations after the death of George Floyd.“We are lifting the curfew, effective immediately. Yesterday and last night we saw the very best of our city,” the mayor said in a tweet on Sunday. “Tomorrow we take the first big step to restart. Keep staying safe. Keep looking out for each other.”4:21 a.m.: Virginia officer charged with 3 counts of misdemeanor assault and battery involving man in crisisThe Fairfax County Police Department called a late press conference Saturday night to release details surrounding the arrest of one of the department’s own officers.The white officer, Tyler Timberlake, faces three counts of assault and battery related to an on-duty incident that happened Friday.Body camera video played at the press conference shows an officer deploying his stun gun on a black man, who was walking away from him at the time. The man seems in the footage to be suffering from some kind of medical episode.The man falls to the ground, where the officer proceeds lean on his back with his knees. The officer appears to deploy the stun gun on him again, this time while he’s already face down on the ground. At this point, other officers join the initial officer in pushing the man into the ground, where they force handcuffs onto him.At one point, the victim yells: “I can’t breathe.”Col. Edwin C. Roessler Jr., the county’s chief of police, said the man “is alive and resting at home with his family.”Roessler also says Timberlake, an eight-year veteran of the department, has been relieved of duty. Other officers who were present have also been relieved of duty pending the result of both criminal and administrative investigations.Timberlake faces up to 36 months of incarceration.2:57 a.m.: St. Louis-area officer suspended after video shows him hitting man with unmarked patrol carAn officer was suspended and two others were placed on leave after a Ring video camera caught an officer driving into a man and then struggling with him on the ground multiple times.Florissant Police Chief Timothy Fagan said the incident happened on June 2 but he only learned about it and saw the video on Saturday. The chief said the FBI and the St. Louis County Police Department are investigating the incident.“My gut reaction was I talked to three different agencies to take a look at it because I do have some concerns about it,” Fagan said.The man seen being hit in the video was approached because he was in a vehicle matching the description of another car in connection with shots fired outside the Ferguson Police Department.Police said no weapons were found on the man and he is facing pending charges for carrying drugs and resisting arrest.The man suffered an ankle injury.“I’ll tell you what I believe I see in the video which is that the male then gets up and tries to run and then officer tries to take the male into custody and from my view looks like he struck the individual at least two times, he looks like he kicks him and then hits him with a forearm,” Fagan said.The incident happened on June 2 around 11:30 p.m. in the 9800 block of Eastdell Drive in the City of Dellwood.St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell will not be looking into the case as his spokesperson’s son, an officer, was in the backseat of the car the detective was driving when he hit the man, creating a conflict of interest for Bell.The case was turned over to St. Charles County Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lomar as a result.Fagan said there is no body or dash camera footage to review.The officer that was suspended had been with the department for nine years.12:42 a.m.: Several officers injured due to improvised explosives in SeattleThe Seattle Police Department confirmed that several of their officers were injured after people at a demonstration began throwing rocks and bottles at officers and by setting off improvised explosives.The incident occurred at approximately 7:30 p.m. according to the Seattle Police Department, when demonstrators outside the East Precinct began moving barricades without permission and the police asked them multiple times to stop.The condition of the officers is not currently known.11:14 p.m.: Minneapolis mayor booed after saying he does not support abolishing policeMinneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey was booed out of a protest after he said he did not support abolishing the police department.A protester asked Frey if he supported defunding the police department, however, he did not answer that question and instead said he “did not support the full abolition of the police.”Boos quickly permeated through the crowd and protesters chanted, “Go home Jacob! Go home!”Activists have called for defunding police departments in the U.S., often meaning taking money out of the police budget and putting it toward the community. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced such a measure earlier this week.ABC News’ Courtney Pomeroy, Alexis Zotos, Abigail Shalawylo, Ahmad Hemingway, Alexandra Faul, Joshua Hoyos and Rashid Haddou-Riffi contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

The accounts each made a single post: a soundless typewriter animation spelling out a few words over a muted pastel backdrop: “when all else has been done and said.”Fans of Oysterhead quickly recognized the lyrics from “Mr. Oysterhead”, which appeared on the band’s only album, 2001’s The Grand Pecking Order: “When all else has been done and said… along comes Mr. Oysterhead.”Related: Watch Full Pro-Shot Video Of Oysterhead At Bonnaroo ’06The trio first came together on May 4th, 2000 for a late-night performance in New Orleans during Jazz Fest at the Saenger Theatre. In 2001, due to overwhelming demand, the trio reformed to record and release The Grand Pecking Order, which featured nine new tracks in addition to four songs debuted at the Saenger. A North American tour followed the release of the album.On June 16th, 2006, Oysterhead reunited for a set at Bonnaroo. The newly announced Colorado performances will mark the first live Oysterhead shows since that Bonnaroo set nearly 13 years ago.While only two 2020 Oysterhead reunion shows have been announced, we’re sure this is not the last we’ll hear from the group in the near future.
