China's first 500-kilowatt sea wave in Guangzhou

China's first 500 kilowatt sea wave power generator was delivered on Tuesday June 30 to the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Energy Conversion in Guangzhou. Named Sharp Eagle - Zhoushan, the converter is part of a wave energy demonstration project initiated by the Chinese Ministry of Natural Resources, located near the island of Dawanshan, in the city of Zhuhai in the province of Guangdong.

Developed by the Chinese institute and manufactured by China Merchants Heavy Industry Co. Ltd., the device currently represents the largest wave energy converter in China. The Institute of Energy Conversion in Guangzhou of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has announced a collaboration with various companies in the sector to further develop this new technology and structures dedicated to producing clean energy from marine waves.

Good news for the green economy in the UK

Great Britain set a new record for sustainability: two months have passed in a row without burning coal. It is the longest period of electricity generation without the use of coal since 1880, thanks also to the lockdown against the pandemic.

And to think that in the collective imagination we see the English capital, London, pervaded by the fumes of chimneys and industries between the late 1800s and the early 1900s. Great Britain is the country that introduced coal-fired electricity to the world.

Britons celebrated two months of coal-free electricity generation some days ago the longest period in over 140 years. There are many factors that led to the historic announcement, the main ones are two: the collapse of energy demand linked to the blocking of activities due to the coronavirus, and since May, the sunniest ever recorded in the United Kingdom.

This allowed the Pasese to make greater use of the energies produced by renewable sources, such as wind and solar energy. In total, there were 61 days in the UK since the last coal generator disconnected from the grid. The period ended on 10th June 2020.

This long, carbon-free period broke the previous record of 18 days, six hours and 10 minutes, set in June 2019. These figures only apply to England, Wales and Scotland, as Northern Ireland is not part of the National Grid, the company that records the data and that disclosed the surprising results.

Furthermore London says stop to Huawei on the ultra-fast 5G network. This is the decision of the Boris Johnson government, although some emse ago the situation seemed different. It's a lot. The decision is expected to be announced next week: USA.

sanctions against China, according to British intelligence, would have serious consequences for the tech giant Huawei, which could no longer be able to guarantee the cyber security that was hoped for.
