New Horizons for Clean Power Generation in Japan

New Horizons for Clean Power Generation in Japan

The post-Fukushima shutdown of Japan’s nuclear reactors and subsequent demand for energy self-sufficiency due to costly fuel imports, coupled with the Japanese government’s ambitious emissions reduction targets for 2020, have stimulated growth in new renewable energy sources in the country.

Currently, renewable power accounts for approximately 15% of total electricity generation in Japan, while hydro and solar power occupy a combined 12% share, aided by attractive government subsidies for these technologies.

Although the government has been proactive in recent initiatives to identify and promote potential areas for exploration and development of geothermal power, there has not been any significant development of the technology in the country in the last decade.

In fact, a new whitepaper by Frost & Sullivan underlines that geothermal power contributes a meagre 0.3% to total electricity generation, despite the country possessing the third largest geothermal resource in the world, representing a power generation potential of 23 GW.

While development of the technology at medium and high temperatures is characterised by stagnation, increased investment and technological innovation targeting low-temperature geothermal power (<120?C), historically used primarily for heating purposes, are expected to significantly increase the addressable market potential for geothermal power.

Commenting on this new growth market, Ross Bruton, Programme Manager & Principal for Smart Energy Systems at Frost & Sullivan, emphasised that harnessing the potential offered by low-temperature geothermal power will help achieve Japan's power security and emission reduction goals.

The advent of technological innovations is significantly increasing system performance and cost efficiencies at low temperatures, set to boost uptake levels. Mr Bruton commented: "Additional drivers include multi-application benefits for hot spring (onsen) owners, attractive feed-in-tariffs and grant financing offered by government, relaxation of development restrictions in national parks, and a lack of environmental assessment requirements for small scale geothermal power."

"These drivers, combined with improved cooperation at the community level, is expected to set up low-temperature geothermal power as a potential game-changer in the exploitation of the country's geothermal potential, and marks a contributory step towards the establishment of a stable, low-emission power industry in Japan," he added.

Japan's domestic energy crisis is opening up interesting opportunities for foreign companies to contribute to the national geothermal portfolio. However, companies will need to compete against well-established alternative technologies, such as solar photovoltaic, to gain a foothold in the market.

Utham Ganesh, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, points out that "building strong local and community relations represents a key success criterion for project development, due to the strong cultural values attached to hot springs in the country and the resistance shown for fear of environmental impact."

Cutting Supplements for Women

This article will detail a lot of the methods and products used by women bodybuilders to achieve great fitness results while being health safe.

So many questions …. What are the best steroids for women to use and what are the potential benefits and side effects? Almost every female bodybuilder has questions about steroids women can use. Steroids have become somewhat accepted for use by men, at least socially. But there are still many questions about the efficacy.

Like men, women are interested in taking steroids too. There are many reasons for this, but the most common is to get a slim and muscular look, and get rid of fat. Women are more concerned about their physique, that’s why more and more women are used chemical bodybuilders for building a great body.

Legal Anavar is a safe, natural, extremely effective legal alternative to the prescription steroid Oxandrolone, also known as Anavar and goes by many other street names. This legal anabolic is manufactured with the exact same goals in mind as its pharmaceutical counterpart, but without the dangerous side.

A woman’s metabolism is different than a man’s. The fact is, women retain more fat than men. There are different supplements available for women, a popular product is one made by CrazyBulk. Detailed view : legal steroids safe for women

There are many women who are genetically gifted, but those women are few and far between. Most women do not have perfect genetics and struggle when trying to lose weight, burn fat, and firm up their muscles. In order to get a ripped and shredded most women will not tell you that besides diet and exercise, they use a variety of performance enhancement drugs (steroids).

Anabolic steroids are commonly used by fitness models, yes the ugly truth is, women tend to carry around more body fat than men, in order for women to stimulate their metabolism and burn fat there are 3 steroids women will take to help burn fat and maintain a lean body.

Most women are not going to compete in a fitness or bodybuilding competition, however, many want to have a great looking body, taking steroids does have side effects, however, there are safe steroid alternatives that can offer similar benefits. Legal steroids offer the same benefits by mimicking the effects of anabolic steroids.

Unfortunately, most bodybuilding supplements target male athletes and bodybuilders, what most companies do not realize is that there are just as many women that look for supplements to help improve their physique and performance. Unlike men, women have a harder time eliminating body fat. That is why some supplement companies have turned their focus to female bodybuilders and fitness models.

We all carry weight in different places and the last place where that weight seems to come off is the stomach or abdominal area, however it is not practical to think that we can completely eat our way to shredded abs, sure you can eat clean healthy foods but that is not the complete secret to shredded abs. What we can do is watch what we eat and eliminate foods that provoke our body to store fat.

The body needs protein and lean protein acts as a thermogenic that can help burn fat, it has been proven time and time again that high protein diets are more effective than low calorie or low fat diets, this means eating plenty of fish, chicken, lean beef and green leafy vegetables.

The goal of a cutting cycle is to maintain as much muscle as you can while eliminating body fat. Everyone has muscle, however, the only way to show it off is by getting rid of the fat that is covering up the muscle.

The Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center Will Host Hurricane Harvey Benefit Show September 24th

Who knew a devastating hurricane in the Texas Gulf Coast would inspire so many communities across America to pitch-in and help? But that’s exactly what’s happening September 24th in Ocean Springs, Mississippi when “FRANK & LIZA” come to the Mary C. This strong community already knows the impact of a record-breaking storm. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravaged their own coastline. But today, it’s Houston and the Texas coast that urgently need the help.

Thanks to the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center, the exhilarating musical tribute to “Frank Sinatra & Liza Minnelli” will come to Ocean Springs for one Sunday matinee benefiting the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. The show is a rapid-paced musical journey through the classic and timeless hits of Frank Sinatra and the Broadway-like song and dance spectacle that is Liza Minnelli’s trademark.

Described as “warm, witty and sexy”, the Las Vegas show features a delightful exchange of music, humor and dazzling duets between two of the most talented artists working today – Dave Halston and Suzanne Goulet. Together, “FRANK & LIZA” will not only thrill a willing audience, they will make it easy for virtually anyone to assist in the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.

Seating is limited. Tickets are available online now for $25.

About the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund:
After receiving an overwhelming number of inquiries from citizens and companies who want to help, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and County Judge Ed Emmett have established the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund that will accept tax deductible flood relief donations for victims that have been affected by the recent floods. The fund will be housed at the Greater Houston Community Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity.

About the Artists:

Dave Halston comes with an impressive resume – working a multitude of theatres, casinos, special events and private parties coast to coast – and in most cases, leaving the audience stunned. As one observer described it, “Dave Halston somehow casts a spell, and they always want more.” Even Barbara Sinatra was brought to tears when Dave performed for her at an exclusive private event. She called his performance “wonderful” and noted specifically the fine job Dave did with Sinatra’s signature song “My Way”.

In addition to Mrs. Sinatra, Dave has also entertained Jeanne Martin (Mrs. Dean Martin), recording artists Michael Feinstein, Steve Tyrell and Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, among other notables.

Suzanne Goulet was born in Montreal, Canada and has been dancing since the age of 3. She starred in “Fantastique” at the Sheraton Bal Harbour in Miami Beach, then at the Sands Casino in Atlantic City and at the Condado Plaza in San Juan, Puerto Rico. She then joined “Hooray for Hollywood” for an international tour to Spain, Switzerland and Japan. She also choreographed and danced for a show on the “Song of America” cruise ship from RCCL. After studying voice in New York City, she won the “Smirnoff Makes You A Star” competition and began her career as a tribute artist.

In 1996, Suzanne joined “Legends in Concert” at Bally’s Grand in Atlantic City. Then she followed the show to the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas where she received rave reviews and numerous awards.
