GE, Kofler Energies and BELECTRIC Take Highly Efficient Hybrid Power Plant into Operation
BERLIN—May 13, 2015—GE (NYSE: GE) is putting a new, highly efficient hybrid power plant into operation in Berlin. With this pioneering concept, which offers scalable capacity, GE and its project partners Kofler Energies and BELECTRIC are breaking new ground in the area of innovative, decentralized energy supply. Representatives from the involved companies were joined by guests from the worlds of politics, business, and science to witness the launch of operations at the plant.
The new hybrid power plant, which was developed by Kofler Energies and GE’s planning office BLS Energieplan, combines photovoltaic with flexible Jenbacher combined heat and power (CHP) technology and an innovative battery solution. Thanks to an intelligent energy management system and comprehensive operational oversight, the power output can be controlled to meet demands as efficiently as possible.
The plant will not only supply power and heat to the GE Power Conversion production site in Marienfelde, Germany, but it also will feed power into the grid. The system is based on a scalable business model that also can be adapted for larger units.
The centerpiece of the hybrid power plant is a Jenbacher J312 gas engine with integrated heat storage and an efficiency level of 89.2 percent. The 400 kW system covers the basic heat load of the site during the heating season and is fueled by energy-efficient natural gas. The plant enables primary energy savings of around 30 percent compared to systems that generate heat and power separately through conventional heating and external electricity procurement.
A 600 kW solar power system with an operating voltage of 1,500 volts has been installed on the roof of the production hall. All measurement readings required for monitoring and controlling the complex system can be called up and managed remotely via the central energy management system.
When the amount of power being generated is high but consumption is low, surplus power is stored in a battery with a capacity of 200 kWh. This can then be released and fed into the plant network as required to meet higher levels of demand, bringing flexibility to power generation. Surplus power only is supplied to the public grid if the battery is completely full.
The boilers, pumps and valves are controlled in a way that ensures that the system always operates efficiently and in line with demand. The data recorded makes energy consumption transparent and can be used to help adjust the power supply to meet requirements to the
The use of stem cells by athletes may become the norm someday. As drug companies conduct trials, reveal their safety and efficacy, and eventually gain FDA approval, the use of stem cells will rapidly gain traction among professional athletes. Just as reduction of inflammation is believed to decrease tissue ischemia and its negative effects in stroke patients, reduction of inflammation in muscular tissue restores proper cellular function and accelerates healing. Pluristem recently learned that an intramuscular injection of adult stem cells not only repaired the incised muscle faster than placebo, but also the contralateral side (non-surgical side) showed greater muscle force.

Getting an understanding of some mechanics of market maker and naked short selling
Naked" Short Selling
In a "naked" short sale, the seller does not borrow or arrange to borrow the securities in time to make delivery to the buyer within the standard three-day settlement period. As a result, the seller fails to deliver securities to the buyer when delivery is due (known as a "failure to deliver" or "fail").
Failures to deliver may result from either a short or a long sale. There may be legitimate reasons for a failure to deliver. For example, human or mechanical errors or processing delays can result from transferring securities in physical certificate rather than book-entry form, thus causing a failure to deliver on a long sale within the normal three-day settlement period. A fail may also result from naked short selling. For example, market makers who sell short thinly traded, illiquid stock in response to customer demand may encounter difficulty in%
In the best areas of the Marcellus it costs $1,100 per lateral foot to drill a well and they supposedly recover or have an EUR of 2.1 BCF/1,000 feet. So a well with a 5,000 foot lateral costs $5,500,000 and has an EUR of 11 BCF. Total Return on this well with NG at a buck would be $11,000,000. Subtract out Royalties and Taxes of say 25% and the driller will get back 8.25 Million. Around 70 percent of total production will occur in the first 3 years netting the company $5,775,000. Corporate overhead, interest, depreciation, etc. need to be accounted for as well. It seems probable to me that this best of the best type well would not be profitable with NG at a buck.
And I have some serious doubts about getting EUR of 2.1 BCF/1000 feet - a very select few wells will produce at this level if any.
EOG is the only shale driller that I know of that has been positive cash flow in thei
Facebook is full of fake accounts, many of them are opened by pedophiles and by people who use fake names to troll and pretend to be other people. I attempted to report obvious fake accountd and Facebook never disabled them.I don't think advertisers are getting their monies worth considering that most adds are anoying and most people I know have never mentioned that they saw a new product on Facebook or were made aware of something because it was in Facebook. From what I see snapchat and instagram and taking away share from Facebook with t
So ...roughly, device only needed to be around for approx 2 years for stability data and a single late stage trial. So call it 3 years. It can actually be quicker as UNS often state the materials in contact with the fluid path are all known materials so stability data should be a no brainer.
But of course just because a device doesnt have to be used in all trials and the whole clinical program; doesnt mean that the pharma and the device company are not
All my winners I owe to these guy
Nonsense! To say dividend is safe for 2 yrs ignores the cash crunch that SDLP faces beginning in 2017 as their fleet rolls over, at rates likely to be 40% below current contracts.

Tiny hands bug me but 25 shares is amazing. Well, at least they are interested I just hope they learn.
Stops saved me bing on EXAS (profit) and CERS (loss). The EXAS profit covered CERS netting me about $20! Whoopie! I may move into oil. Need to stud
I wouldn't be stunned as these small cap stocks with no institutional support, dividend or revenues for that matter are going to have wild swings. This would appear to be the time though to place a bet on this stock as approval of the epi-pen could garner some institutional support. With the small float this stock could shoot up.
