Image source: Getty Images I think green energy is the future. But I’m also conscious it’ll be challenging to pick winners in the sector over the next few years. Over the next decade, hundreds of billions of pounds are set to flow into the renewable energy sector. What’s more, a tidal wave of new companies seeking to capitalise on this trend has hit the market during the past year. However, most of these businesses are currently unprofitable. In addition, some are developing technology that’s, as yet, unproven. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These companies are incredibly speculative, which is why I plan to avoid most of them. Instead, I want to focus my efforts on already-established companies that have plans in place to grow their green energy production over the next few years. Green energy championOne FTSE 100 company is planning to invest more than almost any other UK business over the next nine years in green energy. That’s utility group SSE (LSE: SSE). The group is currently in the middle of a transition. It’s looking to invest £7.5bn by 2030 to triple its renewable energy output. The funding for these projects will come from the sale of non-core assets.For example, SSE recently inked the sale of two energy-to-waste projects, which raised £995m in cash. It’s also progressing with a plan to sell its entire stake in Scotia Gas Networks, which distributes gas to homes and businesses.On top of these disposals, SSE has sold a 25% stake in the Walney offshore wind farm and a one-third stake in meter asset provider MapleCo.And while one team at the company has been selling assets, another has been redeploying the capital. SSE and its partner Coillte Renewable Energy recently began construction of their joint 30MW Lenalea wind project in central Donegal.The company is also pushing ahead with the development of its Dogger Bank C Project, one of the most significant wind farm projects in the UK, jointly owned and operated by SSE and Equinor. SSE also owns 40% of the Dogger Bank A and B projects. Finally, this month, SSE announce it plans to build Scotland’s first power station using carbon capture technology. All of these projects should help the company achieve its green energy ambitions. Income and risksOne of the reasons why I like SSE over any other green energy stock is the fact the firm’s an already established business.It has the capital to pursue renewable energy projects and is generating enough profit to pay shareholders for owning the stock. At the time of writing, shares in the company offer a dividend yield of 5.2%. Unfortunately, I don’t think this dividend is here to stay. The company has said it’ll try to maintain the payout, but if SSE’s capital spending obligations continue to expand, it may cut the distribution. Another challenge the group faces is debt. SSE’s debt-to-equity ratio is nearly 200%. That’s relatively high. Such an elevated level of borrowings could weigh on the company’s growth. Still, despite these risks, I think this remains one of the best green energy stocks to buy. That’s why I’d invest £5,000 in the business today.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Dupont sees off countrymen to be crowned Six Nations Player of the Championship

first_imgFriday Nov 6, 2020 Dupont sees off countrymen to be crowned Six Nations Player of the Championship France’s Antoine Dupont has been named as the 2020 Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship, becoming the first ever Frenchman to be awarded the prestigious award. The scrum-half received 46% of the votes.ADVERTISEMENTThe honour has previously been awarded to the likes of Brian O’Driscoll, Stuart Hogg, Andrea Masi and Shane Williams.Ahead of going to a public vote, a shortlist of six nominees, three French, two English and one Irish, were chosen by an expert panel of distinguished rugby writers, former players and broadcasters from across the six participating countries.The nominees were:·       Grégory Alldritt – France·       Antoine Dupont – France·       Maro Itoje – England·       Romain Ntamack – France·       CJ Stander – Ireland·       Ben Youngs – EnglandThe 23-year-old France scrum-half was a creative hub for his team, a menace with the ball in hand whose athleticism kept defences on the back foot, while also dovetailing effectively with half-back partner Romain Ntamack.No scrum-half made more than Dupont’s 249 metres with ball in hand, while his 54 kicks for 1,543 metres (both Championship highs) proved there is another facet to his game outside his electric running in the open field. Dupont’s Championship-high 12 offloads showcased his ability to keep the ball alive.ADVERTISEMENTDupont’s French team, rejuvenated under the guidance of Fabien Galthié, had a scintillating Guinness Six Nations campaign, narrowly missing out on the title to England on points difference on a fascinating ‘Super Saturday’ to end an extended Guinness Six Nations campaign like no other.France kickstarted their Guinness Six Nations campaign with a 24-17 win over Rugby World Cup finalists England, before beating Wales 27-23 and Italy 35-22. In France’s last fixture before the coronavirus lockdown, Scotland pulled off an unlikely 28-17 victory to open up the Championship, setting up a fitting ‘Super Saturday’ finale, with France, England and Ireland all in the mix to claim the Championship.RELATED VIEWING: ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

His collection of 1,308,459 one-cent coins weighed 4 tons, and had to be stored in seven oil barrels.Not that he was giving the money to charity. According to the BBC he was going to use the money “for his retirement, home repairs and medical expenses.” Advertisement  20 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Fundraising Regulator publishes list of charity registrants

first_img  51 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 12 July 2017 | News On the publishing of the register, Dunmore said:“We are grateful to all charities who have played a role in supporting us by assisting with our set-up costs and by paying the levy. This is a commitment to ethical, regulated fundraising in the charity sector and good progress is being made. However, I would urge those who have not paid the levy to do so as soon as possible and for others to register.”  52 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 The Fundraising Regulator has published a list of all the charities that have registered with it, which includes all those that have paid the levy.The levy is voluntary and is collected from charities in England and Wales that spend £100,000 or more each year on fundraising. It is based on the ‘spend on generating voluntary income’ data submitted as part of the annual return to the Charity Commission made by charities for the year ended 31st December 2014 (the most recent full year for which this data is available within the annual return).Registered charities fall into two categories:Those who spend more than £100,000 per year on fundraising and have paid a voluntary levy which covers the Fundraising Regulator’s running costs. These charities are automatically registered.Those who spend below £100,000 per year on fundraising are not required to pay the levy, but voluntarily pay a £50 per year administration charge to be registered.There are ten banded thresholds for the levy, starting from £150 per year for charities spending £100,000 – £149,999 annually on generating voluntary income, to £2,500 for those spending £1-2 million, up to £15,000 for those spending £50 million or more.Registered charities agree to the Fundraising Regulator’s Fundraising Promise, which outlines a fundraising commitment made to donors and the public as well as terms and conditions of registration, which allow them to use the “Registered with the Fundraising Regulator” badge.The Fundraising Regulator invoiced 2,011 charities. 219 of these were removed from the levy scope, leaving 1,792 within it. As of 22nd June, £1.7m had been raised with 372 of those invoiced not having paid. This comprised 57 refusals to pay, 246 non-responses and 69 continuing negotiations. As of today a number still have not paid the levy.On 22nd June, Fundraising Regulator Chief Executive Stephen Dunmore responded to an article suggesting that the Regulator was ‘running on reserves’ due to a lack of support. He refuted the claim, saying it was ‘entirely incorrect’. He added:“Our draft budget for the second year of operation is £1.8 million, revised downwards from £1.96m to reflect operational experience acquired during our first year of activity and our forecast of levy income. To date the levy has provided £1.7 million in year 1 (September 2017-August 2018) and we are confident that this will reach at least £1.8 million. The Board will take final decisions on our 2017/18 business plan and budget in July.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Fundraising Regulator publishes list of charity registrants Tagged with: Finance Fundraising Regulator About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Fort Worth holds active shooter response courses

first_img + posts Facebook “As we’ve seen since 2000 all the way up to now, these instances where people are going in and taking lives are trending up,” said Lieutenant Edward Fishman from the Fort Worth Fire Department. “We just think it’s important that the citizens are empowered to be able to do something for themselves until public safety can get there to help them.”Fishman instructed the last course.Active Shooter from TCU Student Media on Vimeo.Retired ICU nurse Melody Wayne attended a similar course 40 years ago but said the course offered by the city provided new information on how to protect oneself.“They were more open about the fact that you need to avoid,” Wayne said. “When I was doing this before they didn’t give you that option they kinda told you ‘hide under the desk’ and [Fishman] very well brought out that hiding under the desk is not an effective way to do things.”The avoid, deny, defend strategy teaches people to avoid the situation, deny access to yourself and defend yourself as a last resort, said Fishman.“I don’t care if it’s a pair of scissors or a thermonuclear device – it’s a threat, someone’s trying to kill our citizens,” Fishman said. “We want them to respond in this manner.”Residents taking the course heard phone calls placed to 9-1-1 and saw reenactments of the 1999 Columbine shooting.The information was then used as a tool on what individuals could have done differently to help increase the chance of survival.“You can defend yourself by throwing a stack of clothes at people,” Wayne said. “Anything to interfere with their aim and that’s kind of what I took away from it. Anything to avoid, anything to interfere with their ability to hurt others.” Linkedin Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Tori Knoxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tori-knox/ Facebook Gang evolution does not match common perceptions Tori Knoxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tori-knox/ Linkedin Twitter Tori Knoxhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/tori-knox/ National Night Out increases community safetycenter_img ReddIt printThis fall the City of Fort Worth held five active shooter civilian response training sessions for Fort Worth residents.The courses were built around the avoid, deny, defend strategy that was developed by the Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training in 2004.The FBI found that active shooter incidents have been increasing over the years. In 2014 and 2015, there were 40 active shooter incidents, which resulted in 231 casualties according to the FBI.

The book was a critical success in the press and on the Internet, but was withdrawn from sale in January.In an article posted on 22 August, the Boxun website said Zhuang’s employers told him in a letter on 19 June that he was being suspended for serious misconduct because he did not respect publication procedures. Reached by Radio Free Asia, Zhejiang University said the suspension would last at least a year.Officially, Zhuang was censored for failing to heed directives from his superiors (who found the content of his book to be inappropriate), allegedly imitating his superior’s signature in order to get the book approved, and violating the “Regulations on the Protection of Secrets in the Publication of Information,” a State Secrecy Bureau law controlling publications that tackle politically sensitive subjects.Zhuang insists that all the various requirements as regards correction, editing and approval were adhered to before his book was published. to go further Receive email alerts Organisation March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
