German project looks to home photovoltaic systems to help grid

  • AS) and solar panel maker Sonnen GmbH have launched a pilot project that will tap home photovoltaic (PV) systems to help iron out imbalances on Germany’s power network.
  • “A home storage unit for solar power on its own is less valuable than one that can be used collectively,” said Philipp Schroeder, director of sales and marketing at Bavaria-based Sonnen.
  • “We want to find out how we can reduce the waste of wind power by storing it in Sonnen batteries that we can access in the North while releasing power from solar energy stored at Sonnen batteries in southern Germany,” said Urban Keussen, board chairman of the board at TenneT’s German unit.
  • Because network development lags far behind, a lot of power is wasted because the north houses most of Germany’s wind turbines whose output cannot reach industrial users in the south.
  • Should 10 percent of all households use solar plus storage in 10 years, that would create capacity of some 6 gigawatts of power, he said, equivalent to six nuclear plants.

Grid operator Tennet (IPO-TTH.AS) and solar panel maker Sonnen GmbH have launched a pilot project that will tap home photovoltaic (PV) systems to help iron out imbalances on Germany’s power network. TenneT and Sonnen’s e-Services subsidiary aim to sign up 6,000 household PV producers equipped

Jordan Peele: ‘Black Voices Will Tell Good Stories Just Like Anybody Else’

Jordan Peele: ‘Black voices will tell good stories just like anybody else'

  • Jordan Peele says that while he is grateful for the recognition he has received for “Get Out,” the film’s success proves a valuable lesson about the ability of black films and filmmakers.
  • “When you give black voices a platform and the opportunity to tell our story, we will tell good stories just like anybody else,” Peele said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
  • “The power of story and the power of a well-crafted film or television show is really all you need to speak to people,” Peele said in the interview.
  • This is precisely why he thinks “Get Out” was so successful: it flipped the usual narrative around horror films by featuring a black man as the protagonist and victim as opposed to a white woman.
  • Read more on Peele’s thoughts about black films, his opinion on slavery movies and how he felt turning down “SNL” at The Hollywood Reporter.

You can say that again.

#bitcoin value tops gold for first time  BBC News

  • Bitcoin value tops gold for first time – BBC News

    A unit of the digital cryptocurrency Bitcoin has exceeded the value of an ounce of gold for the first time.It closed at $1,268 on Thursday while a troy ounce of gold stood at $1,233.

  • The value of Bitcoin has been volatile since it was first launched in 2009, and many experts have questioned whether the crypto-currency will last.Earlier this year, Chinese authorities cracked down on Bitcoin trading in an attempt to stop money flowing out of the country illegally.But the closer scrutiny from Beijing only briefly sent the currency lower.
  • How Bitcoin worksBitcoin is often referred to as a new kind of currency.
  • Yet like all currencies its value is determined by how much people are willing to exchange it for.To process Bitcoin transactions, a procedure called “mining” must take place, which involves a computer solving a difficult mathematical problem with a 64-digit solution.
  • There are currently about 15 million Bitcoins in existence.To receive a Bitcoin, a user must have a Bitcoin address – a string of 27-34 letters and numbers – which acts as a kind of virtual post-box to and from which the Bitcoins are sent.Since there is no register of these addresses, people can use them to protect their anonymity when making a transaction.These addresses are in turn stored in Bitcoin wallets, which are used to manage savings.Demand for the digital cryptocurrency has soared since the beginning of the year.
