The mobile chip division is part of its wholly owned subsidiary Renesas Mobile.The world’s leading maker of microcontroller chips used in cars  will receive its state financing by the end of September, at which point it will be two-thirds owned by the taxpayer-funded Innovation Network Corp of Japan (INCJ).Reuters notes that Renesas had been expected to join an all-Japanese merger of Panasonic’s and Fujitsu’s LSI chip units, which make microchips used in TVs, digital cameras and other consumer electronic products. It is believed that those talks are ongoing. Tags FinancialRenesaslast_img read more

US: Renewables accounted for 40% of all new power capacity in first three quarters

first_imgUS: Renewables accounted for 40% of all new power capacity in first three quartersData from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission reveals combined capacity of new renewable energy sources has so far topped 3.5 GW. October 27, 2014 Ian Clover Installations Legal Markets Markets & Policy Share The latest energy infrastructure update report by the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (Ferc) has revealed that renewable energy accounts for 40.61% of all new energy generation capacity added so far this year. Ferc’s calculations – which only include utility-scale solar and omit distributed generation – also reveal that renewable additions to the U.S.’s power mix are 35 times that of new coal, oil and nuclear power. In the first three quarters of the year, 3,598 MW of clean energy has been added, versus just 104 MW of coal, oil and nuclear. Only natural gas, boosted by fracking, provided more new generating capacity. In September, the Ferc data shows that 603 MW of new generating capacity was added, of which 41 MW was utility-scale solar. Ferc does not calculate solar PV capacity added at residential or commercial scale; an omission that overlooks two of the U.S.’s fastest-growing sources of renewable energy generation (according to NPD Solarbuzz, residential solar demand alone will top 1 GW a year based on the trailing 12-month rate). Compared to year-on-year data, there is a clear pro-renewables trend in the U.S. In 2013, the first nine months of the year saw 3,218 MW of renewable energy added. In 2014, the figure of 3,598 MW represents a 11.8% increase in just 12 months. Ferc’s report states that renewable energy sources now account for 16.35% of total installed operating generating capacity in the U.S. – up slightly from 15.68% in 2013. For utility-scale solar, that increase is 0.84%. “The steady and rapid growth of renewable energy is unlikely to abate as prices continue to drop and the technologies continue to improve,” said Ken Bossong, executive director of Ferc’s SUN DAY Campaign. “The era of coal, oil and nuclear is drawing to a close; the age of renewable energy is now upon us.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Dominion Diagnostics scholarship to enhance access to Vermont Recovery Residences

first_imgVermont Business Magazine A new scholarship advancing addiction recovery in Vermont has been established to support the Vermont Foundation of Recovery (VFOR) by Dominion Diagnostics, a leading national medical laboratory with a two-decade long history in the state and deep roots in its treatment and recovery community. The Dominion Diagnostics VFOR Scholarship, which will be initially established with $9000, will begin in January 2019 and offers VFOR the opportunity to provide accessible recovery housing for individuals transitioning from addiction treatment, to recovery, to independent living.Dominion’s scholarship addresses a recommendation of the Vermont Governor’s Opioid Coordination Council (OCC) to expand access to quality, affordable recovery housing, which supports the company’s long-time commitment to discovering and developing new ways to enhance the treatment community at varying stages in care.Many individuals reentering their communities after treatment struggle financially and are unable to cover initial deposit and first month’s rent for housing. Their alternative all too often is to return to the environment that fueled their substance use to begin with. Dominion’s scholarship will allow VFOR to offer those critical funds to recovering individuals for a safe, nurturing start in one of VFOR’s five recovery residences.”We are keenly aware of the need for safe and sustainable housing for individuals as they leave treatment and are in the early stages of their recovery,” says Mary Hauser, Dominion Diagnostics Vice President of Addiction Services.The scholarship will have a pay-it-forward concept designed to support personal agency and service work which is a hallmark of an effective recovery program. As recipients regain independence from one of the five VFOR homes, they will be gently encouraged, if able, to pay back all or part of the scholarship received to support others who will follow. Chittenden County Opioid Alliance Executive Director Christine Johnson looks forward to seeing the results of what she is calling a ‘promising pilot’ and says the scholarship will help to fill a need that many people will utilize. “Housing for people in recovery is a vital component of what is needed for someone to overcome substance use disorders,” Johnson says. “Being able to receive a scholarship to take that step towards stable housing is a huge benefit and being able to pay it forward to others is a great opportunity.”Dave Riegel, VFOR’s Executive Director and Board President for the Vermont Alliance of Recovery Residences (VTARR), could not agree more. “The need is so great,” he says. “This act of kindness will allow the most vulnerable access to a safe, stable, sober living environment.”According to Riegel, VFOR will compile data on the effectiveness and sustainability of this pilot as a model to achieve the overarching goal of supporting all Vermont recovery residences. It is Dominion Diagnostics’ hope that this scholarship become a call-to-action for other Vermont businesses and organizations to support recovery residences in their geographic area.”Lack of safe housing is one of the greatest challenges and highest risks for many clients as they leave treatment,” Dominion’s Hauser said. “By supporting VFOR with this new scholarship, we believe we are making a meaningful contribution to individuals and the recovery community.”For more information on the Vermont Foundation of Recovery, visit: http://vermontfoundationofrecovery.org/(link is external)For more information on the Opioid Coordination Council, visit: www.healthvermont.gov/response/alcohol-drugs/governors-opioid-coordination-council(link is external)For more information on the Chittenden County Opioid Alliance, visit: www.ecosproject.com/chittenden-county-opioid-alliance(link is external)About Dominion DiagnosticsDominion Diagnostics is a national medical laboratory that provides clinical drug monitoring solutions, actionable clinical information and innovative support solutions.

Southwestern Vermont Medical Center loosens visiting guidelines

first_imgSouthwestern Vermont Health Care,Vermont Business Magazine Starting Monday, Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC), part of Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC), allowed adult hospital inpatients to have one visitor and pediatric inpatients to have two.“We know that recovering from an illness, an injury, or a surgery is a little easier when patients have the people they love nearby,” said Trey Dobson, MD, SVMC’s chief medical officer. “We want to allow visitors as much as we can while keeping our patients, staff, and visitors safe.”The one-visitor policy applies to all inpatients with few exceptions:·         Patients nearing the end of life may have multiple visitors, up to two at a time.·         Patients who have a disability may have both a family or friend caregiver, who is necessary for their care, and a visitor.·         Partners and spouses of expectant and recently delivered mothers are welcome 24 hours a day. Others, including siblings of newborns, may not visit at this time.·         Pediatric inpatients may have up to two primary caregivers.The policy for outpatient care has not changed since initial restrictions were initiated in early March to decrease the effects of COVID-19.·         Adult outpatients should attend appointments alone, unless physical or cognitive support is needed. Outpatients who need a caregiver may bring one, provided that person is symptom-free.·         Prenatal appointments may be attended by both the patient and one caregiver. Others, including children of expectant families, should not attend appointments.·         Pediatric patients in the outpatient setting may have one adult caregiver with them.·         Visitation to the Emergency Department is limited to one individual.Both inpatients and outpatients who would benefit from additional support during a visit or stay should request the use of technology to bring important family and friends virtually into exam and hospital rooms.Everyone—patients, caregivers, and visitors—is required to stop at the check-in desk located near the hospital and Medical Office Building entrances.·         All are expected to arrive wearing a mask or face covering. Those who do not have a mask will be provided one. All masks must be worn for the entire duration of the visit. Those who do not comply will be asked to leave the premises.·         Patients who are symptomatic or have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19 will be provided with a medical-grade face mask.·         Caregivers and visitors with symptoms of any kind and those who have had contact with someone positive for or suspected of having COVID-19 are not permitted at this time.·         All non-staff persons entering an SVMC building will be given a sticker marked with the date and department they are visiting and are asked to keep the sticker visible and remain in the area of service for the entire time they are in the building.·         Everyone is expected to sanitize their hands upon entry and exit from the building, units, and patient rooms.“SVHC has provided safe, high-quality care throughout the pandemic,” said Thomas A. Dee, FACHE, Southwestern Vermont Health Care’s (SVHC) president and CEO. “We are open and ready to provide all of our services, and we are doing so safely and as comfortably as possible.”Patients with cough or shortness of breath or any two of the following—fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell—should contact their primary care provider or the COVID-19 Informational Hotline at 802-440-8844 before arriving to either their provider’s office or the hospital.

This 60 GHz mm-Wave Full Gigabit Speed Radio is the Size of a Smartphone

first_imgSiklu, has introduced a virtually invisible mm-Wave full gigabit speed radio that is roughly the size of a smartphone. The TU (cTU) T201 is a compact Terminal Unit that is part of the PtMP MultiHaul series product line from Siklu. With the cTU, the customer premise side of the system has been reduced by over 85% in total volume when compared to the standard TU (Terminal Unit), while maintaining the same gigabit performance. This cTU device is available in a pocket-size package that measures only 6.5″x3.1″x1″ (165mm x 80mm x 25mm) and weighs less than 250 grams. It is also available in multiple colors making it easy to blend into its environment.The MultiHaul cTU is inherently interference-free and secure under all circumstances thanks to a unique combination of narrow pencil beams operating over the uncongested 60 GHz frequency spectrum, coupled with embedded AES encryption, exactly the same as the standard TU. Multiple subscribers and services can be connected on the same mm-Wave wireless gigabit network simultaneously with complete isolation based on a physical port, VLAN ID and/or a Terminal Unit.The cTU smart package is designed for a quick and simple, one-person installation. The integrated Anymount allows for pole or wall attachment, and the installation is completed with a single CAT5e cable into the premise where the cTU gets standard POE power from an Ethernet device. An optional POE injector is included in the package to guarantee power in non-standard installations. The narrow-beam is aligned automatically, and provisioning from the BU is automatic for any Terminal Unit (TU and cTU).The cTU compact and slim form-factor is available in multiple color options allowing installation everywhere, eliminating costly site preparations and long cable runs. The solution is also supported by Siklu’s SmartHaul software management tools for automated network design and planning with Siklu radios. Siklu’s cTU solution will be showcased at CommunicAsia 2019 in Singapore from 18-20 June and at IFSEC International, in London from 18-20 June.last_img read more
