Duke Energy has announced $30m plans to build two battery storage facilities in North Carolina totalling 13MW. A 9MW lithium-ion battery system will be built at a Duke Energy substation in the Rock Hill community in Asheville. Both projects are expected to be online in 2019. The company said the two battery facilities are the first in a larger plan to deploy storage in the region.
The transition to a low-carbon economy needs to increase in pace, if the world is to limit temperature change to no more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, according new research by three UK universities. Researchers from the universities of Manchester, Sussex and Oxford in a study published in the journal Science have outlined four ways in which the low-carbon transition could be accelerated.
Eon has held a ceremony in Sassnitz on Rügen island to celebrate the formal start of offshore construction at its 385MW Arkona wind farm. The project site is located 35km north-east of Rügen island in the German Baltic Sea, where water depths range from 23 to 37 metres. A2Sea will install 60 Siemens turbines, boosted to 6.4MW each, while Eon has lined up French fabricator STX to supply and install an AC offshore substation for Arkona.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
