22 July 2011The Absa Campus, located in downtown Johannesburg and home to the bank’s headquarters, consumes at least 12MW of electricity a day – but hardly any of this is drawn from South Africa’s national grid.Absa has built has an eco-friendly energy centre to generate its own electricity from low-pressure gas in Towers West, one of eight high-rise blocks of offices on the campus.Power generated from the centre is mostly used between 6am and 10pm, during which electricity consumption peaks in local businesses. The co-generation scheme used at the centre means that Eskom’s power mainly comes into play at night after 10pm, when the demand for energy is less. This keeps the electricity bill in check.“The energy centre has the capability to power the entire Absa Campus. The campus becomes independent off Eskom’s grid as demand peaks,” Shaheed Hendricks, head of Absa’s corporate real estate services, said in an interview last month.Dedicated gas pipelineThe energy centre has four gas-powered engines generating a combined 11.2MW of power. Each of the four GE Jenbacher J620 gas generators is enabled to peak at 2.8MW. Diesel units are on standby to generate a further 6MW during an emergency.The gas used in the engines is generated from Egoli Gas, the city council-owned natural gas supplier. Absa’s demand magnitude meant it had to install its own pipeline that stretches from Egoli’s location site in Auckland Park, some 6km from the Absa Campus.Egoli Gas has 1 200km of gas pipelines that reach various users around Johannesburg.“There’s a dedicated pipe from Egoli Gas to the Absa Campus. That makes us the biggest user of their services,” said Sandile Mthiyane, Absa’s head of energy. “Because of our energy requirements, we had to have our own dedicated pipe.”Absa’s decision to introduce the gas-generation system at its headquarters was largely driven by power outages experienced in South Africa between 2007 and 2008. The new headquarters were being built during this period.“All the power outages were a major motivator. We were forced to think differently,” said Mthiyane.Minimising its carbon footprintAbsa’s decision was also in response to Eskom’s appeal for responsible electricity usage. The utility continues to urge South Africans to do this, with a special focus on high-energy consumers.The surrounding environment is also benefiting from the scheme. Gas emits 40% fewer greenhouse gases compared to coal- or diesel-based generation models.The centre does not emit any smoke or exhaust gas fumes. “Besides reducing our energy consumption, it contributes to the wellbeing of society,” Hendricks said.The carbon footprint of Absa Campus has also been reduced quite significantly, which is enabling the bank to trade carbon credits.CO2 emissions from the campus have been cut from 97 000 tons to 78 000 tons per year.Absa, one of the four major banks in South Africa, is hoping to expand the centre in future by adding two more engines that could generate an extra 6MW.Once this happens, the centre could be able to supply power to neighbouring facilities like the Carlton Centre, which houses Transnet offices and a shopping mall. Residential blocks of flats in the vicinity could also score, and in turn reduce pressure on Eskom’s national grid.“In future we can export power onto the grid,” said Hendricks.Towers West’s energy-efficiencyBesides being home to the energy centre, the Towers West is the greenest building on the campus, and certainly beats all those in the Johannesburg CBD.A number of energy-efficient designs put it above the rest.The 3 000-plus employees working from the campus rely on a heat-recovery steam generator to exploit wasted energy from the gas turbines. It’s harvested and then used for air-conditioning as well as warming up water for showers.“Instead of using electric heaters, we’re capturing exhaust heat from the machines to heat up the air that we use to either cool or warm the building,” Mthiyane said. “We use exhaust heat that would otherwise be wasted.”The roof over the building’s wide atrium is transparent enough for natural light to pierce through, ensuring that there’s no need to use light bulbs.“The building has been designed to capture as much natural light as possible. There’s no chance of leaving light bulbs switched on for 24 hours in Towers West, as lighting has been designed to direct itself.“The lights automatically switch off if there’s no-one in a room. They sense the movement of people in the building.“As soon as you walk into the room, the lights will switch on,” Hendricks said.Now the challenge for Absa is to transfer similar technology to other buildings on the campus, as well as introduce such interventions at many of its branches spread across the country.First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Purdue University-based Useful to Usable climate initiative is taking some of the guesswork out of crop nitrogen management for more farmers by expanding its Corn Split N tool to include all Corn Belt states.The free tool helps farmers and advisers manage the application of in-field nitrogen to maximize crop yields and minimize environmental damage. Efficient nitrogen management is critical for earning a profit in present economic conditions, said Ray Massey, Extension professor of agricultural and applied economics at the University of Missouri, a partner in the initiative known as U2U.“Studies indicate that Split N applications to corn can improve profitability as well as increase risk,” Massey said. “The Corn Split N tool helps farmers understand and manage the risk of Split N applications.”Corn Split N integrates historical data on weather and fieldwork conditions with economic considerations to determine the feasibility and profitability of completing a post-planting nitrogen application for corn production.“U2U has combined corn yield response data from Extension crop fertility specialists together with statistical modeling of days suitable for fieldwork to expand the Split N tool to cover seven new states,” said Ben Gramig, associate professor of agricultural and resource economics at Purdue.Farmers in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio and Michigan can get customized results based on their planting and fertilization schedule, local costs and available equipment.The tool also has a summarized fieldwork table and crop calendar so farmers can see how schedule adjustments might affect their ability to fertilize on time. Accumulations of growing degree days, or GDDs, and associated corn growth beyond the current day are estimates based on the historical 30-year average GDD accumulation for a user-selected location.Corn Split N is part of the U2U suite of online tools that help farmers and agricultural advisers manage increasingly variable weather and climate conditions across the Corn Belt. U2U provides historical climate data that helps purchasing, marketing and activity planning throughout the growing cycle.To access the expanded Corn Split N tool, go to www.AgClimate4u.org.Useful to Usable is a research and Extension project, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, composed of 50 faculty, staff and students from nine U.S. universities with expertise in applied climatology, crop modeling, agronomy, cyber technology, agricultural economics and other social sciences.
A panel of 221 members has been selected for the existing and upcoming Foreigners’ Tribunals (FTs) in Assam. Another 50 applicants have been put on the wait list.In a notification on Monday, the Gauhati High Court said the panel members comprised retired judicial officers, advocates and civil servants, who we were called for interviews from July 16 to August 11. It recommended the candidates, selected in order of merit,. The list had been prepared and published less than a fortnight before the completion of the final National Register of Citizens (NRC) on August 31.200 new tribunalsEach FT is headed by a judge-like member appointed under the FT Act, 1941, and FT Order, 1984, as per the guidelines issued by the government from time to time.Assam has 100 FTs. According to Home Department, there were initially 11 Illegal Migrant Determination Tribunals (IMDT). These were converted to FTs after the Supreme Court scrapped the Illegal Migrants (Determination by Tribunals) Act, 1983.The government established another 21 FTs in 1983. Four more were added in 2009 and the remaining 64 established in 2014 for disposal of cases that were piling up in the FTs.The government would establish 200 FTs primarily for handling cases of people to be excluded from the final NRC. These would be in addition to the existing 100 and are part of the 1,000 that the Centre had decided to help Assam set up in view of the pressure envisaged to dispose of cases of people to be left out of the NRC.Officials in the Home and Political Department said the new FTs would be distributed among six districts. Kamrup (Metropolitan) district, which covers Guwahati and outskirts, would get 67 of these, followed by Nagaon with 39, Jorhat 31, Bongaigaon 22, Sonitpur 21, and Cachar 20.“Apart from the cases of people left out of the NRC, the new FTs will also deal with the regular cases of D-voters,” a senior officer said. ‘D’ stands for doubtful or dubious voter, a category of people disenfranchised by the government for their alleged lack of proper citizenship documents.
England all-rounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes will miss the rest of the one-day series against Australia because of injury.Stokes was sidelined for the first two games of the five-match series, both won by England, due to a torn left hamstring.”The plan is for Ben to continue his rehabilitation … with a view to being available to play in the Twenty20s against India starting next month,” said the England and Wales Cricket Board in a statement on Monday.Woakes also missed the first two matches against Australia because of a right quadriceps tear. The ECB said on Monday he would not be available at least until the ODI series against India which starts on July 12.England will bid to take an unbeatable 3-0 lead against Australia in Nottingham on Tuesday. The teams also meet in Durham on June 21 and in Manchester on June 24 before taking part in a one-off Twenty20 international in Birmingham on June 27.
On October 18, 2015, “Glee” star Max Adler will host the Ghostly Gala to Vanish FSHD at the historic and elegant Cicada Club in downtown Los Angeles.Video: Ghostly Gala to Vanish FSH muscular dystrophyThe event is open to the public and all net proceeds benefit research and education programs at the FSH Society, an award-winning non-profit and global leader in the quest to treat and cure Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD).The Halloween costume ball will feature dinner, big band music, magic, a live auction, and a costume contest judged by Adler and friends. Costumes are optional, but cocktail or vintage attire is requested. Adler, whose family has been directly affected by FSHD, appears in a public service announcement to promote the Ghostly Gala.FSHD, one of the most prevalent types of muscular dystrophy, is a degenerative muscle disease that causes progressive weakness, and may render its sufferers unable to pursue their livelihoods, smile, blink, or even hug their kids.Adler’s mother and grandmother were among the close to one million men, women, and children who battle the disease. The condition is hereditary and patients face a fifty percent chance of passing it on to each child. “I watched my family try to cope with FSH Muscular Dystrophy, and it broke my heart to see how it changed their lives and the lives of everyone who loved them,” Adler says.“There are thousands of people in southern California who are affected by FSHD and we’re so grateful to Max and our other advocates in the entertainment industry for using their celebrity to raise awareness” says June Kinoshita, Executive Director of the FSH Society. “This is a watershed moment, when we are embarking on the era of drug discovery. Much greater public visibility and resources are needed now that we are so close to having the first effective treatments for FSHD.”Ghostly Gala Event Details: • What: FSH Society’s Halloween Costume Ball hosted by Max Adler of “Glee” • When: Sunday, October 18, 2015; Doors open at 5:00 p.m. • Where: The Cicada Club at the Historic Oviatt Building, 617 South Olive Street, Los Angeles, California 90014 • For Tickets: Visit this link, call (781)-301-6651, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
