first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Tech:Angola is expecting to kickstart its dormant solar sector by deploying several hundred megawatts worth of projects within three years, a top government official has said. Speaking in the capital Luanda, energy minister João Baptista Borges predicted that nationwide PV capacity will reach 600MW by 2022, up from the 10MW-plus figures recorded this year.At an event a the U.S. embassy this week, Baptista Borges said the roll-out of 30,000 individual systems is feasible if the private sector steps in to back the transition. “There is a need to create a vehicle to secure funding for the electrification of rural areas,” the minister said, in statements aired by government news agency ANGOP.In Angola, the rise in policymaker interest in solar PV comes as analysts describe the African state as a largely untapped PV hotspot, thanks to irradiation levels in the 1,350-2,100 kWh/m2/year range. As the German Solar Association (BSW-Solar) and the Becquerel Institute noted this year, the government’s own figures place Angola’s solar potential at 55GW, far above wind’s 3GW. In a report released in mid-May, as Intersolar 2019 got underway in Munich, the authors pointed at the government’s efforts to tap into clean energy to bolster rural electrification rates.The minister’s talk this week of a 600MW solar market by 2022 outstrips some of the government’s earlier goals, including a target for PV capacity to hit 200MW nationwide by 2025. As BSW-Solar and the Becquerel pointed out in May, the country has shown interest in coming on board the World Bank’s Scaling Solar programme, which has helped unlock PV growth in countries like Senegal, Zambia and Ethiopia.More: Angola eyeing 600MW solar market within three years Angola looks to kickstart solar development effortslast_img read more

The former Villa boss was dismissed on Sunday after their sixth straight defeat left them rooted in the Barclays Premier League relegation zone and without a win since the opening day. He was axed just eight months after replacing Paul Lambert in February. Sherwood had kept Villa up last season as well as leading them to the FA Cup final in May, where they lost 4-0 to Arsenal. center_img Ex-Lyon boss Remi Garde is the favourite to replace him and Sherwood released a statement via the League Managers’ Association following his departure from Villa Park. He said: “I am very disappointed that I will not be able to carry on in my role as manager of Aston Villa. “I knew when I took on the role that it would be a big challenge, but it proved to be one I greatly enjoyed and I know I have learned a lot from this experience. “Obviously, the initial priority was to stay in the Premier League, but beating Liverpool in the FA Cup semi at Wembley and then leading the team out for the final was an achievement and experience that I will treasure for the rest of my career. “I’d like to thank my coaching staff and the staff throughout the club for their dedication, the Villa fans for their passionate support and the players, who gave everything during my time at the club. I wish the club all the best for the rest of the season and indeed for the future.” last_img read more
