On this day we remember all those that gave their lives for our today. From world wars to the present conflict in Europe, and many other conflicts around the world, we are very fortunate to live in a country where we can enjoy freedom and peace.

 

We also remember those who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces.

 

Thank you for your service!

The projects will contribute to the stabilisation of the German electricity grid and will be ‘networked virtually’ with the adjacent power plants, allowing optimisation of the assets.

 

The system at Hamm will total 140MW of power while Neurath will be an 80MW system, while a press release said the systems will have a duration of “over an hour”. A similar duo of projects which RWE is set to bring online this month have a duration of 1.14 hours (112MW/128MWh).

 

The company is undertaking the project design, modelling, system integration and commissioning in-house, and expects to start construction next year for a 2024 commissioning date. The projects amount to €140 million (US$129 million) of investment.

The UK Government has committed to banning new diesel and petrol cars from 2040, but a number of industry partners are calling for legislation to be brought forward.

 

The government has said it will ban new petrol and diesel cars from 2040, in line with its commitment to reducing the country's carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.

 

However, several industry partners, including Ford, Octopus, Pod Point and Britishvolt, have urged the Government to bring forward legislation to ensure the Zero Emission Vehicle mandate is operational from 2024. Against the backdrop of COP27, these companies have penned a letter to Mark Harper, Secretary of State for Transport; and Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy – to ask that they continue to demonstrate climate leadership in the decarbonisation of road transport.

 

They say that banning new petrol and diesel cars and vans from 2035 puts the UK on track to be one of the leading G7 nations to transition to electric vehicles. The partners see an impressive level of electric vehicle (EV) growth that puts the UK within sight of the 22% floor for 2024 (ZEV share of sales per manufacturer) set out in

Recently, our CEO Douglas Johnson-Poensgen had the opportunity to present Cirulor to a prestigious group of industry leaders. You can view the lecture here.

 

Titled "What needs to be done to ensure a successful transition to a lower-carbon energy system?", it is an engaging and informative talk that will change the way you think about our planet's future.

The Australian Climate Council just released its report on which car companies are best positioned to achieve their goal of making a fully-electric vehicle by 2030. And Polestar came out on top of all of them—and by a long shot.

 

Polestar's ambition is to go even further, and make this finish line the new start line. They're aiming for climate neutrality, which means that every part of their business will be carbon-neutral, from the manufacturing process to the disposal of waste. That's something no other car company has set as its goal yet.
