Asia’s offshore wind capacity growth seen hitting 9GW annually by 2030

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Asian Power:Annual offshore growth in Asia is expected to rise to 9 gigawatts a year in 2030 from 4GW, while around 5% of potential capacity is expected to be in place, Wood Mackenzie Asia Pacific Vice Chairman Gavin Thompson said in his APAC Energy Buzz blog.Almost 1,500GW of technical offshore wind potential, which offer enormous potential for Asia, have been identified mostly in China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Vietnam.Thompson notes that as power markets slowly liberalize across Northeast Asia, there will be growing commercial demand for renewables as costs continue to decline and governments seek to attract investment. However, he adds that much still needs to be done. Costs still need to come down by half if offshore wind is to be competitive with fossil fuels and increasing competition from other renewables, such as onshore wind and solar PV. In addition, ambitious offshore wind targets will be tough to meet without sustained government support.China remains as Asia’s largest offshore wind market, with the strongest pipeline of future projects. Some 38GW of new added offshore wind capacity is expected to come online in China by 2029.Thompson estimates the offshore turbine supply chain presents over $200 billion of opportunity in the next decade globally.More: Asia’s annual offshore growth to rise to 9GW in 2030 Asia’s offshore wind capacity growth seen hitting 9GW annually by 2030last_img read more

With election nearing a resolution, investors see some market-friendly themes emerging

first_imgTraders agreed that the Federal Reserve would remain accomodative and that some kind of fiscal stimulus was coming from Congress, but there’s no agreement on the timing or size of the deal.“I think it’s certain that the Fed is going to continue to be extraordinarily easy for a long  time to come…and I also think that it’s certain that we’re going to get fiscal stimulus.” Strategas Research Partners Chairman Jason Trennert told CNBC. Liz Young, BNY Mellon Investment Director of Market Strategy, said stimulus would now dominate the markets. “Both parties want stimulus,” she told CNBC. “That’s going to drive a rally  that’s going to drive positivity and the sequence of events matter so if you get a fiscal  package and a vaccine around at the same two or three-month period that’s huge upside in the stock market.”The good news: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said a stimulus bill would be the Senate’s top priority before year end, and indicated aid to states — a major stumbling point in prior negotiations — might be included.Everyone will be tough on ChinaNo matter who wins, the stance toward China has hardened. “I think we pick a fight with China no matter what,” Peter Tchir from Academy Securities told me.Not everyone is convinced. “The world expects Biden to be easier on China, I hope that is not true,” Kyle Bass said on CNBC, noting that the dollar weakened against the Chinese currency when Biden appeared to be in the lead.Protecting vital U.S. industries will be a theme under either administration: “I think there is going to be huge pressure to bring medical manufacturing back home,” Peter Tchir told me. “Why are we producing essential medicines in China?”Trade and the dollarIndeed, many traders agreed that “economic nationalism” — bringing supply chains back to the United States — would be a theme under the Biden administration as well. “Biden’s Made in America is the import substitution strategy that is very close to Trump,” Marc Chandler from Bannockburn Global Forex told me. The differences between them, he says, “Is more about style than substance.”Trade agreements are a different matter. Noting that that the U.S. is formally leaving the Paris Accord, Chandler said  Biden will seek to rejoin that agreement.As for the dollar, both the import substitution strategy and the monetary and fiscal policy mix lends itself to a weaker dollar.“We will have a twin deficit: we will have a budget deficit, and a large trade deficit,” Chandler told me. “U.S. interest rates should be expected to rise to attract investors, but rates can’t rise much, so the alternative is to have the dollar lower. As the U.S. borrows more money, the dollar will fall.” He too pointed to the strength of the Chinese yuan against the dollar.Bigger government, no matter who is in the White House?No matter who wins, many feel the 2020s “will be characterized by bigger government,” Bank of America said in a recent note to clients, citing among other things, the wider acceptance of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) that proposes governments should not worry about deficits and should print money unless it becomes inflationary.David Kelly from JP Morgan agrees: “In today’s environment of near-zero or even negative interest rates and massive central-bank purchases of government securities, we are witnessing a move in the direction of MMT.”Others cite the growth of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) investing, which implies investors pushing for more social changes and increased government regulations.For the moment, a Goldilocks marketFor the moment, these broad policy questions are being put aside as traders celebrate the potential for a perfect scenario: a new President with a check on his ability to raise taxes and impose more regulation.“We are going to have a much better economy next year than a lot of people realize, regardless of who is in power,” Tchir told me. “We are really going to get the stimulus that goes beyond the band-aid, with big infrastructure, and attempts to repatriate jobs from abroad.”Subscribe to CNBC PRO for exclusive insights and analysis, and live business day programming from around the world. What’s next for markets? With the election over, some old themes will be re-emerging, regardless of who will be president. The rally is due to better earnings visibility- Advertisement – – Advertisement – “The good news is the uncertainty surrounding a very contentious election should soon be behind us, and investors can focus on the macro influences that ultimately drive direction: inflation, interest rates, money availability, and the prospects for domestic and global growth,” Tony Dwyer from Cannacord Genuity wrote in a note to clients.In discussions with traders, several “old themes” came up over and over: the extent of fiscal and monetary stimulus, China policy, and trade and the dollar. One important trend either president will be facing:  the prospects for much bigger government.Fiscal and monetary stimulus: how much?- Advertisement – On one issue, all traders agree: the market rally is largely due to the unlikelihood of higher corporate and individual taxes next year.“The Senate numbers from the 2020 election indicate that higher corporate taxes are unlikely, giving us and others more conviction in 2021 EPS estimates,” Tobias Levkovich from Citigroup said in a note to clients. Like many, Levkovich estimated that higher taxes could shave at least 5% off earnings in 2021, but “that possibility has dissipated,” Levkovich said.Back to fundamentals- Advertisement –last_img read more

Governor Wolf Commends Task Force to Maximize Job Creation in Pennsylvania Forest Products Industry

first_img October 25, 2016 Environment,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today applauded the work of a panel of forestry experts from private, public and academic sectors that has been meeting regularly since January to analyze current limitations to forest conservation and job growth, and to develop an action plan to address both objectives.“Prioritizing conservation and job growth related to this field is vital to creating a sustainable, dynamic industry in this state where almost 60 percent is forested,” Governor Wolf said. “One of Pennsylvania’s greatest strengths is our natural resources, and this group’s strength is the expertise and commitment you folks have demonstrated the past nine months.”The Green Ribbon Task Force was called together following extended discussion between Gov. Wolf and Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn on how Pennsylvania’s nearly 17 million acres of forestland could best play an active role in his call for statewide job creation.The governor commended the panel for looking at ways to spur job growth while improving and conserving the state’s forest base. Addressed specifically were:A new conservation easement program for working forests that would keep forests as forest but provide increased opportunities for sustainable harvest of wood products;Legislation to give loggers, on whose shoulders the entire forest products industry rests, more incentives and advantages to get into the logging business and to be able to make a good living, including better worker’s compensation options, more training, and more opportunities for worker recruitment;Sustainable support for the Hardwoods Development Council to conduct research, marketing, training, and many other opportunities through a public-private partnership between the industry and state government;Support and promotion of more maker’s spaces across Pennsylvania cities, where small manufacturing, wood crafters, artisans and others can share resources, networks and bring jobs back to forested Pennsylvania;Raising the profile of forest-based jobs through forest tours, job mentoring, early recruitment, apprenticeships and similar workforce efforts.”The panel’s report represents eight months of hard work by the 35 task force members and many agency staff and experts,” Dunn said. “It represents dozens of hours in all-day meetings, work group calls, field trips to see first-hand our forest products industry, lumber yards, manufacturing plants, our forests, and more. This collaborative effort among agencies and different stakeholder groups has taught us about each other’s work, problems, lives, and passions.“It has also produced better and more workable recommendations. We have learned from each other, and are making plans to keep working together to address the many issues we’ve raised and to put our recommendations into action.”Meeting at the governor’s invitation at his Harrisburg residence, at least 30 participants had been selected by DCNR and the state departments of Agriculture and Community and Economic Development. Today they were addressed by Gov. Wolf, Dunn and other key speakers, including:Daniel Devlin, state forester and director of DCNR’s Bureau of Forestry; Russell Redding, Secretary of Agriculture; Dr. Jim Finley, director of the Center for Private Forests and Pennsylvania Extension Forester;  Paul Lyskava, executive director, Pennsylvania Forest Products Association; and Wayne Bender, acting executive director, Hardwoods Development Council.Individual workgroups had been formed, introduced and assigned study and discussion areas that included: conservation; workforce development and jobs; economic development and products. Each workgroup’s responsibilities include:Address the current state of the forest and forest products industry; define the scope of the workgroup; identify issues to address; develop recommendations to bring to the larger group; and work with other workgroups to integrate and forge recommendations into a final set.Since its formation Jan. 7, the task force has held monthly meetings, and individual work groups also met to discuss issues in greater detail and formulate recommended action items. Workgroup chairs then reported out on their groups’ progress to the larger task force, in order to stimulate broader discussion.Details on the Green Ribbon Task Force can be found at http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/councils/Greenribbontaskforce/index.htm.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Governor Wolf Commends Task Force to Maximize Job Creation in Pennsylvania Forest Products Industrylast_img read more
