“Only when you have the right quality do you have an acceleration in the installation footprint itself,” Rajaram Pai, business leader E&C South Asia and marketing manager at initiative sponsor DuPont remarked at the beginning of the seventh pv magazine Quality Roundtable in India. A range of experts from right across the solar value chain shared their views and aired their solutions to an enrapt audience in Greater Noida, near Delhi, India, in late September.
"Let’s be clear; the solar industry is not asking for any new public support – but we urgently need just some of the tax breaks available to fossil fuels today" - Solar Trade Association. Hopes were certainly not high for the U.K.’s solar industry ahead of today’s Budget, and Conservative chancellor Phillip Hammond certainly stuck true to form by denying solar access to tax breaks so readily and regularly given to the country’s fossil fuel industry.
Analysis of the positive social, economic and educational benefits of off-grid solar has been presented by London-based research group Overseas Development Institute at the COP23 climate change summit in Bonn, Germany. Chiefly, the researchers found that children living in the developing world could gain an extra 15 minutes’ study time a day if their household switched out polluting fossil fuels for solar lamps and off-grid solar arrays.
@sporrington@AlanPhi28707478@helenlewis Yes, I agree that it is, and it's good to recognise such reactions, and challenge them when they do harm. I suppose innocently preferring women as midwives feeds into a certain narrative about the female/male roles in society, which can often - but not always - be harmful.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
