SRP Partners with Solar and Storage Developer, Clēnera, to Build One of Arizona’s Largest Solar Projects

BOISE, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Clēnera and SRP today announced a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) between SRP and Clēnera’s affiliate, CO Bar Solar LLC. This PPA represents the utility’s largest standalone solar power plant currently under development northwest of Flagstaff, Arizona. CO Bar Solar is scheduled to be commercially operational in 2024 and will deliver between 440 and 480 megawatts (MWdc) of renewable energy to SRP customers. Clēnera, a developer of large-scale solar and storage projects, and a subsidiary of Enlight Renewable Energy LTD (TASE: ENLT), will construct and operate CO Bar Solar.

This project is one of many that support SRP in its long-term decarbonization goals. It will also help SRP meet its expanded commitment to add 2,025 MWac of new utility-scale solar resources by 2025.

“SRP is pleased to partner with Clēnera to add this substantial solar resource as part of our diversified energy mix and power generation strategy to meet the Valley’s growing electricity needs,” said Mike Hummel, SRP General Manager and CEO. “The CO Bar power plant is an incredible clean energy resource that will support SRP customers and help us take a significant step toward our decarbonization goals.”

CO Bar Solar will occupy up to 2,400 acres of private land in Coconino County and construction is expected to begin in 2023. Over the course of the 18-month construction timeline, it is expected that approximately 550 construction jobs will be created, with many being local. Once complete, CO Bar Solar will generate enough power to meet the needs of 80,000 homes, while offsetting 1 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions each year.

Clēnera’s Vice President of Business Development, Jared McKee, said of the partnership: “We are excited to be working with SRP to develop one of the largest solar projects in Arizona. Clēnera has historically paved the way for renewable energy in the state, and CO Bar Solar is yet another example of progress being made in Arizona’s clean energy sector. We thank SRP for their partnership to make this opportunity possible.”

Including this addition and others, SRP expects that nearly 50 percent of the retail energy it delivers to its customers will come from carbon free resources by 2025. These new renewable energy resources contribute to SRP’s 2035 goals to reduce carbon intensity by 65 percent in 2035 and by 90 percent in 2050 from 2005 levels.

Jung von Matt / Hyundai Motor Company: Life is in the Air – the Bubble-making NEXO

In a new digital-first campaign for Hyundai Motor Company, the Berlin-based creative agency Jung von Matt SPREE shows how climate-neutral mobility works using hydrogen.

In a new digital-first campaign for Hyundai Motor Company, the agency Jung von Matt SPREE shows how climate-neutral mobility works using hydrogen.

HAMBURG, GERMANY, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a new digital-first campaign for Hyundai Motor Company, the Berlin-based creative agency Jung von Matt SPREE shows how climate-neutral mobility works using hydrogen. As part of this effort, the team at Jung von Matt SPREE is transforming one of Hyundai Motor’s hydrogen-powered NEXO cars into a “Bubble-making NEXO”. To visually illustrate that the NEXO emits only clean water – and absolutely no climate-harming emissions – the campaign transforms the water from the tailpipe into big soap bubbles filled with plant seeds. That is what sustainability looks like.

As Global Digital Lead Agency for Hyundai since April 2021, Jung von Matt SPREE is responsible for all global social media channels as well as the global website of the South Korean car manufacturer. The collaboration also includes the social advertising budget as well as influencer and PR activities.

“‘Life is in the Air’ might sound like a cheesy pop song, but that’s exactly what our Bubble-making NEXO is all about. By emitting bubbles filled with flower seeds, it breathes life into the air. Through this small, symbolic act of guerrilla gardening, it also playfully gets to the heart of what the NEXO stands for: joy, technology and sustainability”, says Sarah Buggle, Creative Director at Jung von Matt in Berlin.

For the campaign, Hyundai Motor and Jung von Matt hired the Berlin-based creative design studio Neulant van Exel to come up with a device that can magically create bubbles using water and oxygen coming straight from the tailpipe of the NEXO and then fill them with tiny seeds.

In short stories, the campaign shows the Bubble-making NEXO driving in and around Berlin – sowing wildflowers as it passes by. This makes it possible to visually portray the clean power of hydrogen. “The Bubble-making NEXO sows joy”, explains director Julius Krappe. "When the hydrogen car drives by and – instead of exhaust fumes – blows out flower seeds, it becomes clear: climate-friendly mobility works."

The NEXO is the result of 20 years of pioneering work by Hyundai Motor in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technology. The multimedia campaign for the Bubble-making NEXO playfully showcases this pioneering achievement – for everyone who is passionate about cars and engineering as well as sustainability and smart climate protection.

The campaign is now being played out with new digital formats on Hyundai's global Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube channels. The specific dovetailing of media and creation also plays an important role. Among other things, tips are shared there on so-called "bubble gardening; where you utilize bubbles to help spread and plant seeds – a form of guerrilla gardening was coined by the campaign itself.

And to top it off, a roughly five-minute “engineer story” will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the plant-seed-filled bubbles. In it, the camera follows the Neulant van Exel team as it designs the box with seeds and bubbles wands – repeatedly testing, improving and mounting. On Hyundai's social media channels, one of the engineers also gives an insight into how his team brought the Bubble-making NEXO to life for the campaign.

Newly Released — A Good Drink: In Pursuit of Sustainable Spirits by Shanna Farrell

In A Good Drink, Shanna Farrell details the stories of the farmers, distillers, and bartenders driving the transformation to sustainable spirits

Insightful tour de force… Farrell’s writing is as informative as it is intoxicating”

— Publishers Weekly

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — At farm-to-restaurants and high-end bars across America, menus proudly feature locally sourced, sustainable ingredients and the stories of the people who grew them. But why is the eco-consciousness devoted to what we eat not extended to the spirits we drink? The short answer: we don’t think of spirits as food, even though drinks are distilled from the same crops that end up on our tables.

In "A Good Drink: In Pursuit of Sustainable Spirits" (Publication Date: September 16, 2021), bartender and oral historian Shanna Farrell takes a global journey to discover the stories of the farmers, distillers, and bartenders driving the transformation to sustainable spirits. Along the way, she reveals the urgent need for a sustainable spirits movement, as distilling requires huge volumes of water, bars generate mountains of trash, and crops for spirits are often grown with chemicals that are health hazards and environmental pollutants.

Farrell introduces readers to Arturo Campos, a fourth-generation mezcalero in Jalisco, Mexico, working with his father to preserve traditional ways of producing mezcal and the owner of the White Lyan bar in London who eliminated individual bottles and ice. She visits High Wire Distilling Co. in South Carolina, where a husband-wife team are bringing a legendary moonshiner’s corn, Jimmy Red corn, back from near extinction using sustainable practices. At the Maker’s Mark distillery in Kentucky, Farrell sees if it’s possible to pre¬serve local ecology while producing spirits on a large scale. These people are part of a growing trend to recognize spirits for what they are—part of our food system.

From agave fields in Mexico to the American South, small sustainable spirits businesses are galvanizing a good-drink movement. "A Good Drink" encourages readers to think “farm to bar” about what they drink by engaging with spirits on a deeper level. Farrell shows how a spirit’s unique history – from who made it to how they made it – becomes a new way to enjoy that next drink.

For readers who have ever wondered who grew the pears that went into their brandy or why their cocktail is an unnatural shade of red, "A Good Drink" is an eye-opening tour of the spirits industry. For anyone who cares about the future of our planet, it offers a hopeful vision of change, one pour at a time.

Shanna Farrell is an interviewer at UC Berkeley's Oral History Center, where she works on a wide variety of projects and specializes in drink cultural and environmental history. She is the author of Bay Area Cocktails. Her writing has appeared in Imbibe magazine, Life & Thyme, PUNCH, and The San Francisco Chronicle. She holds Master’s Degrees from both New York University and Columbia University.

Founded in 1984, Island Press works to stimulate, shape, and communicate the information that is essential for solving environmental problems.

YMCA of Greater Seattle Purchases Land for New Overnight Camp

Mineral Lake

Mineral Lake is the site of Seattle Y’s first new camp site in over 100 years

Mineral Lake to become Y’s first new camp site in over 100 years, reducing waitlists for youth

We are excited to announce the purchase of what we hope will become a new source of excitement, learning, and positive memories for generations of Washington youth and families”

— Loria Yeadon, President & CEO of the YMCA of Greater Seattle

MINERAL LAKE, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The YMCA of Greater Seattle is one step closer to establishing a new overnight camp for youth and families with the purchase of a 500-acre parcel adjacent to Mineral Lake in east Lewis County at the southwest base of Mount Rainier.

With philanthropic support from the Norcliffe Foundation, the Nisqually Indian Tribe, and generous donors, the Y completed the purchase in September. With additional philanthropic support of community partners who recognize the benefits of the great outdoors to youth and families, the Y has also launched a capital campaign to acquire an additional 1600 acres adjacent to the purchased land to offer youth and families hiking, swimming, canoeing and other traditional activities, as well as new innovative camp offerings such as education on the natural environment, sustainable forestry practices and the cultural history of the region. “The Nisqually Tribe is looking forward to the partnership with the Greater YMCA of Seattle,” said Chairman Willie Frank III, Chairman of the Nisqually tribal council. “We see this as a chance to educate youth about the history of the Nisqually Tribe and we’re excited to see how this relationship will grow.”

The Y continues to work with the Nisqually Indian Tribe and other community partners in and around Mineral Lake to advance equitable access to the outdoors, with environmental, health and cultural programming for all communities, including tribal members and their families, as well as residents of Lewis County and campers throughout Washington.

“We are excited to announce the purchase of what we hope will become a new source of excitement, learning, and positive memories for generations of Washington youth and families,” said YMCA of Greater Seattle President and CEO Loria Yeadon. “We are humbled and grateful for the financial support of the Norcliffe Foundation, the Nisqually Indian Tribe, and other dedicated donors who have helped make the first phase of this site purchase possible.”

This significant step allows the Y to serve more families, but the Y also recognizes that additional permitting work, studies, and fundraising lie ahead, and we remain committed to working with local and county officials, residents, and community partners, throughout the planning and fundraising process.

“We are excited to continue our legacy of developing future stewards of our environment at Mineral Lake as we work to protect and preserve these lands.” Yeadon said.

Planning for the camp is underway, including site studies, water supply, traffic, and waste treatment studies, which will be completed before any construction takes place. Ahead of public hearings the Y will continue to host local meetings and encourage dialog with area residents to answer questions about the camp and its footprint within the community of Mineral, and to explore how the Y can best engage and support area residents.

The Y is committed to being a good shepherd of nature, a great neighbor in our community, and working together to connect all youth, especially youth of color, to the outdoors.

“The opportunities for youth and families to experience the outdoors have not grown at the same pace of population growth in western Washington,” said Meredith Cambre, Senior Executive Director for the YMCA of Greater Seattle. “Experiential outdoor education activities give youth essential tools to develop their fullest potential, and that shared outdoor experiences make families and communities more resilient.”

The YMCA of Greater Seattle is the Northwest’s leading nonprofit
organization strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Founded in 1876, the Y reaches more than 238,000 people of all backgrounds, abilities, and financial circumstances annually through 14 branches, two overnight camps, and more than 200 program sites throughout King and south Snohomish counties. It nurtures more than 92,000 kids and teens to develop their gifts and give back to the community and engages 23,000 volunteers who contribute more than 388,000 hours of service each year.

Despite Western Drought, International Hemp’s AOSCA Certified Seed Production is Resilient

Despite a historically dry summer, International Hemp’s AOSCA certified seed production in North Dakota and Minnesota stands as a success story.

Our plan has always been to introduce large-scale, AOSCA certified industrial hemp seed production to the United States”

— Derek Montgomery

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This summer, International Hemp undertook the monumental task of converting the majority of its hemp seed production from Europe to the United States. With over 500,000 pounds of domestic certified seed production planned, International Hemp set its sights on becoming the largest Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) hemp seed producer in the United States. The vast majority planted was two monoecious grain and fiber varieties, Henola and Białobrzeskie, both bred by the Institute of Natural Fibers and Medicinal Plants in Poznan, Poland.

The summer of 2021 was rife with challenges. For most of the growing season, a severe (in some cases extreme) drought threatened International Hemp’s certified seed production fields. In August, the U.S. Drought Monitor estimated that 40% of the country’s cropland – approximately 216.4 million acres – were experiencing drought conditions. 

“Our plan has always been to introduce large-scale, AOSCA certified industrial hemp seed production to the United States”, says Derek Montgomery, CEO of International Hemp. “Growing crops on non-irrigated fields is always a risk. For a good portion of the summer, it looked like the risk was going to come back to bite us. I don’t want to give the impression that hemp is impervious to drought, it isn’t. We had some losses on account of low moisture, but we were pleasantly surprised at how resilient the plant was with even low amounts of timely rain.”

Crops that were planted into moisture saw quick emergence and established well. A couple of fields never received significant rains after planting and failed, but others that saw timely rain in June and July quickly jumped from 4-5 feet in mid-July to over 11-feet in mid-August.

It’s been a long-held belief that hemp is drought-resistant. Terry Moran, International Hemp’s lead agronomist doesn’t dispute the plant’s resilience but stands by the assertion that industrial hemp needs water at planting for good early emergence to establish a good stand. He comments, “Planting into moisture germinates the seeds and helps establish good plant emergence. Once the plant is growing, some timely moisture can bring about good yields even in otherwise dry years. Even modest irrigation can reduce the risks associated with growing hemp considerably.”

While limited data exists to show optimal water usage requirements, each year International Hemp is gaining more advanced input and yield data and strives to make that information accessible to growers. Despite a historically dry summer, International Hemp’s domestic seed production in North Dakota and Minnesota stands as a success story.

About International Hemp

International Hemp is a Colorado-based provider of certified industrial hemp seed, with a focus on building the domestic infrastructure for “industrial hemp,” i.e., fiber and grain. In 2021, International Hemp sold certified hemp seed to farmers in more than 45 states, Canada, Latin America, as well as non-profit researchers and land grant universities.

Forward-Looking Statements

By 2022, all of International Hemp’s commercial inventory in the United States and Canada will be domestically produced and AOSCA certified. International Hemp intends to continue licensing and developing the highest quality, highest yielding hemp genetics in North America.

International Hemp is partnering with food and industrial manufacturers to spur continued expansion of hemp processing with a mission to plant 1,000,000 acres of industrial hemp by 2025.

International Hemp is actively seeking strategic partners to develop hemp food, fiber, and carbon credit markets. Please direct all inquiries to:

Metro Retail Stores Group Inc reduces its operational costs through cloud migration with Aspire Systems

Metro Retail Group, a chain of supermarkets in the Philippines moves its Oracle applications to cloud in 7 months with Aspire Systems at zero risk of failure.

We were impressed with the technology solutions by Aspire. They offered a safer migration approach compared to the other vendors, we believe that this is a testament to their solid expertise”

— Sir Rex Jun Cabanilla, CTO, Metro Retail Group

VISAYAS, PHILIPPINES, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Metro Retail Stores Group Inc is a leading operator of department stores and hypermarkets in the Visayas region of the Philippines. It is consistently expanding and its business comprises multiple store modules such as department stores, supermarkets, and hypermarkets. In 2019, Metro was awarded ‘Retailer of the Year’ at the Outstanding Filipino Retailer (OFR) Awards.

Cloud migration requires careful planning and execution. When asked ‘What triggered your decision to move to cloud?’ Sir Rex Jun Cabanilla, Chief Technology Officer, said, “We had to have this technology upgrade for hardware systems. So before doing that we were looking for alternatives other than moving to on-premises again. We approached specific vendors, we were impressed with the technology solutions by Aspire. They offered a safer migration approach compared to the other vendors, we believe that this is a testament to their solid expertise (sic)”

As part of their transition, Metro had chosen 23 tightly coupled Oracle applications that had to be migrated to AWS. “This is a large scale implementation project and like any large scale implementation project it wasn’t without its own challenges, but what made us overcome these challenges are the transparency and close cooperation between the Metro and Aspire teams. I commend Aspire leadership for nurturing and leading a competent and approachable team,” said Rex Jun Cabanilla.

Aspire developed a roadmap of consistent milestones for this project and provided the perfect balance between technology and efficiency, allowing Metro to scale up or down as & when needed. In terms of financial targets, Metro Retail Groups Inc. achieved massive reductions in IT spend just after months of go-live and made cloud their superpower. “We have this sense of comforting assurance that complex transformation projects can be realized even in the midst of the pandemic,” said Sir Rex Jun Cabanilla.

Whether it was eliminating hardware support or reducing operational costs, Metro was able to unwind from these workloads and took the next exciting step in accelerating their enterprise-wide modernization activities on a massive scale with Aspire. Sir Rex Jun Cabanilla concluded, “The success of the migration project is a promising start of the long term relationship between Metro and Aspire. So, we are working with them already in the deep formulation of the technical solution of certain business areas.”

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, September 22, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — President Donald J. Trump is called for by American citizens to be the voice of Humanity at the world's global online conference "Global Crisis. Time for the Truth” on the platform of the ALLATRA International Public Movement.

Americans inquire of Mr. President, “will you be the voice of the American people and people all over the world in accepting the invitation?” International Online Conference “Global Crisis. Time For The Truth”, will be held on December 4th, 2021.

It will be broadcast worldwide on thousands of media channels and platforms with simultaneous interpreting into more than 100 languages. This unique format is entirely initiated and organized by ordinary people from more than 180 countries.

The goal of the conference is to bring global attention to the true scale of the global disaster and the dangers that humanity will face in the near future. The need for this vital information to reach a global audience motivates individuals to contribute and perform simultaneous interpreting in 100+ languages on their own.

The international online conference "Global Crisis. Time for the Truth" is a large-scale event organized by volunteers from 180 countries on the platform of the ALLATRA International Public Movement. It will be broadcast on thousands of media channels worldwide.

The objective of the conference is to inform humankind honestly and truthfully about the scale of the climate and environmental crises, about the impending threats, and the real way out.

Key topics of the conference:
● What is the real climate situation on the planet?
● Why is the global media silent about the scale of the threats?
● Why does the climate continue to change rapidly despite international treaties and agreements which officially stated goal is to curb climate change?
● What is the real cause of global climate change?
● From what risks and global threats have people's attention been diverted?
● What are the environmental consequences of reckless human consumerism?
● Why only in the Creative Society is it possible to stabilize the ecological equilibrium of our planet?
● Why, in the face of planetary cataclysms, the Creative Society is the only way out?

On July 24, 2021, the previous international online conference: "Global Crisis. This Already Affects Everyone," was held with simultaneous interpreting into 72 languages.

Since the time of the previous conference, we have been observing the accelerating progression of climate change. Irreversible changes to the planet are recorded daily. Why is the truth about the real state of our planet being silenced? Why is the truth about the real cause of climate change being silenced? Do we look at the root of the escalating problems? Do we see the real causes of what is happening?

Public figures, researchers, scientists, and experts from various fields will participate in the conference and share their views on the cause of the growing climatic and ecological crises.

We aim to inform humanity about the real problems, in order to stop the impending disaster together.
Neither borders nor walls can stop climate change. Only by building the Creative Society can a planetary-scale disaster be prevented. The Creative Society is our only chance to survive. Everyone must hear the alarm bell of the imminent threat to humanity. Everyone must see the irrefutable facts and evidence of impending disasters. It is time for the Truth!

At this conference, we welcome every person who is not indifferent to his fate, to the fate of his children, his loved ones, and to the fate of all humankind! There is nothing more important today than information on how our humanity can survive, and how to save our planet. We should not be afraid of filth; we need to expose it. The truth purifies. The truth unites! The truth gives a chance for life!

Join the online conference "GLOBAL CRISIS. TIME FOR THE TRUTH" on December 4, 15:00 (GMT).
Now it's up to everyone how quickly people will find out the Truth and unite. The future of humanity is in your hands!

APPRECIATE THE ELEPHANTS ON ELEPHANT APPRECIATION DAY WITH DR.TUSK

Dr. Tusk Logo

The mission-driven brand created to save the elephants is celebrating their favorite tuskers AND you with a body care bundle giveaway!

LEBANON, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — September 22 is National Elephant Appreciation Day and Dr.Tusk, the personal care brand developed to raise awareness and contribute profits to elephant rescue organizations, wants to know why its customers love elephants, too! Hailed as some of the most majestic creatures on planet earth, these gentle giants are known to possess social skills and complex feelings like empathy.

Since elephants have the capacity to care for others, it’s the perfect time to share our adoration for them (even if they don’t have Instagrams to see how much). To honor these mammals, Dr.Tusk wants everyone to post their favorite photo, fact or story about elephants and why they love them on Instagram the hashtag #DrTuskElephants and @Dr.Tusk anytime on Sept. 22. The brand will select several winners at random to win a FREE bundle of Dr.Tusk’s lavish, plant-based body care that’s good for you, the environment and, most importantly, the elephants!

Why Dr.Tusk loves the elephants
What’s not to love? Did you know these incredible Asian and African mammals live up to 70 years and have the capacity to create intricate family bonds, just like humans? Elephants from both continents live in herds made of sisters, daughters and their young, all run by a female matriarch. Their tusks, which male Asian elephants and both male and female African elephants have, are highly sensitive to touch and dexterous – allowing these beautiful herbivores to pick up tiny blades of grass and twigs as if they had fingers.

Elephants are extremely playful and soulful. One of their favorite pastimes is bathing – splashing and frolicking in cool water, which is why the elephant preserves Dr.Tusk supports makes lush vegetation and bathing rituals a priority for tuskers’ speedy recoveries, often rescued from lives in captivity.

Devastatingly, wild elephants that are not chained up for entertainment purposes are extremely common targets in illegal hunting. In Africa alone, poachers kill approximately 100 elephants per day for their ivory, meat, bones and skin – breaking apart parents, children and families.

That’s why Dr.Tusk prioritizes non-profits like Wildlife SOS and The Elephant Sanctuary that are completely dedicated to preserving and healing these creatures. The body care company founders donate 5% of all purchases – not just on Elephant Appreciation Day, but all the time – to these incredible organizations.

You can support the elephants by buying Dr.Tusk’s nourishing personal care, from cedarwood-caffeine natural deodorant to lavender sage lotions and exfoliating body bars, all available online and at Whole Foods nationwide. Want to do more? You can also donate directly to the sanctuaries on Dr.Tusk’s website. The elephants will appreciate you – and we will too.

To learn more about Dr.Tusk and how you can help the elephants, too, visit their website, drtusk.com, and their Instagram and Facebook.
