FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:A new report from DNV GL forecasts a bright future for renewable energy, predicting that by 2050 electricity demand will increase 140% to become the largest form of energy consumed, and that 85% of this electricity will be generated from renewable sources.Industry analysts DNV GL predict that solar will be a leading source of energy by 2050, responsible for around one third of the global electricity supply.The report, the first edition of a new annual publication from DNV GL, aims to forecast the ‘most likely’ future for energy through to 2050. Its key findings are that overall energy demand will stop growing within the next 15 years – thanks to increased efficiency and slower population/productivity growth, that much of the existing demand will shift to electricity – as the transport and heating sectors are increasingly electrified, and that the electricity supply will be dominated by renewables – responsible for 85% globally.“The very large increases in PV and wind capacity do not appear to introduce any insuperable new issues in order to maintain secure electricity systems,” states the report. “Such major penetration is beginning to take place in various European grids, and the system operators have shown themselves capable of addressing problems. As penetration increases further, so will innovation.”DNV GL: Renewables to account for 85% of global electricity by 2050 Renewables to account for 85% of global electricity by 2050

John McGrath contributed 0-7, 0-5 of which came from frees.His brother Noel, who was making his first start for the Blue and Gold since beating cancer last year, also made an impact on the scoreboard – he got 0-2.Conor Kenny (0-3) and Pádraic Maher (0-2) were the other starting players that registered scores.Substitue John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer registered 0-3 after coming on for debutant Dan McCormack while Dylan Fitzelle, who replaced Patrick Maher, also put one over the bar.However, manager Michael Ryan will probably be a little dissapointed with the number of wides his side struck, particularly in the first half when the target was missed on ten occasions.Tipperary next’s Division 1A outing is against Kilkenny at Nowlan Park on Sunday Feburary 21st.
THE organisation representing rank and file Gardai has accused the Government of failing to protect them following the death of Garda Robbie McCallion.The Garda Representative Association (GRA) has called for the law to be changed to protect gardaí.It follows yet more incidents where guards have been hurt on duty. Garda Robbie McCallion died in Beaumont Hospital in Dublin on April 7, 2009 a few days after he was struck by a car thief while on duty in Letterkenny.The driver of the stolen car, Jamie McGrenaghan (19) from Kerrykeel, was charged with his manslaughter but after a three day trial, the jury took two hours to find him not guilty.He pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing the death of 29-year-old Garda McCallion and also stealing a car.Following the not guilty verdict, thug McGrenaghan pleaded guilty to his involvement in a number of burglaries between February 26 and 27. In a statement, GRA President Damien McCarthy has said that “there appears to be a political reluctance to properly protect frontline gardaí from assaults” now rising above 800 every year.Mr McCarthy said the death of Garda McCallion had still not been addressed by the Government which had failed to protect gardai.The GRA man said that “successive Ministers for Justice have failed to implement legislation to protect emergency workers. We believe a mandatory sentence would deter a large proportion of potential assailants.”He added that “an assault on a garda is a direct attack on our democratic community.”ROBBIE DEATH: FURY AS GOVERNMENT ‘FAILS TO PROTECT BRAVE GARDAI’ was last modified: July 5th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
