The Business Desk reports that Green Port Hull Overcomes Planning Hurdle.

A DECISION to give the green light to a £210m wind turbine factory in Hull has been welcomed.

 

Plans were yesterday approved for Green Port Hull, a joint development between Associated British Ports and Siemens.

The scheme still requires final approval from Ministers, but it is hoped construction could start next year - potentially creating thousands of jobs.

The project centres on a factory that will put together turbines destined for huge wind farms in the North Sea.

More than 700 people will be employed at the factory, with, it is hoped, thousands more jobs created indirectly through the supply chain.

Mark O’Reilly, director at Team Humber Marine Alliance, the member-backed organisation focused on marine engineering, said the decision represented a significant step forward for the region.

Mr O'Reilly said: “This is an important milestone on what has already been a long journey to create a genuine green energy centre of excellence in the Humber region.

“The final investment decision still needs to be made by Siemens, but as a Humber organisation, Team Humber Marine Alliance and all our member companies wholeheartedly support the company’s plans to build an offshore wind turbine plant in the city.

“Not only will this help to bring extra jobs and prosperity in the relatively near future it will also allow us to further develop an engineering and green energy industry and workforce that can be utilised nationally and internationally. Much work has already been carried to that end, but this decision is a sea change.”

The CO2 Capture Project (CCP) is a partnership of several major energy companies working together to advance the technologies that will underpin the deployment of industrial-scale CO2 capture and storage (CCS).

 

CO2 Capture and storage has been at the heart of the CO2 Capture Project (CCP) since its formation in 2000. The CCP has undertaken more than 150 projects to increase the science, economics and engineering applications of CO2 capture and storage. The group has been working closely with government organizations - including the US Department of Energy, the European Commission and more than 60 academic bodies and global research institutes.

The CCP has completed the second of three phases and has now embarked upon the third phase of its crucial work to develop and test next generation CCS technologies. The insights of this work are critical in helping to reduce or eliminate CO2 emissions associated with ongoing use of fossil fuels.

 Better Place Launch Buy and Lease Scheme

This week in Israel, BP was showing off not only its network of about 40 swap stations but also giving rides in theRenault Fluence Z.E. , a version of a popular car here that was custom-made for BP with swappable batteries. It’s on sale now, though BP hasn’t yet started its major marketing push in Israel.  BP is a one-stop transportation solution. In Israel, customers buy “electric miles,” paying BP roughly $32,000 for the car (the Israeli price) than leasing the battery and a charging plan that gives them access to the company’s public network and the swap station.

Go to http://www.mnn.com/green-tech/transportation/blogs/car-battery-swapping-in-israel for a further explanation of the scheme including a video of the battery swapping station in action.
