South Korea on track to add a record amount of solar generation in 2019 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) announced in a press release this week that the country’s newly installed PV capacity for the first seven months of this year has reached approximately 1.64 GW.For comparison, in 2018 – South Korea’s best year in terms of new PV deployments – new capacity reached 2.02 GW. This means that, if the current trend continues throughout the remaining part of 2019, the country will post another record. By the end of July, the nation’s cumulative installed solar capacity had reached approximately 9.5 GW. In 2017 and 2016, new PV additions reached 1.3 GW and 889 MW, respectively.The MOTIE also noted that new capacity has already exceeded the government’s 1,632 MW target for 2019. Of the total thus far, around 92.1%, or about 1.5 GW, has come from PV installations below 1 MW in size. The provinces of Jeonbuk, Jeonnam and Chungnam have the largest share of this new capacity, with 17%, 18.3% and 14.0% of the total, respectively.The MOTIE also stressed that the quality of solar modules has improved considerably. “In 2018, the share of photovoltaic modules with efficiency of more than 18% accounted for only about 35%, but this year their share increased to more than 80%,” it stated, while also noting how panels made in South Korea accounted for 69% of domestic installations.South Korea currently plans to install 30.8 GW of solar by 2030. This ambitious target is expected to be achieved by building giant solar parks, such as a recently announced 2.1 GW floating solar project and a 3 GW ground-mounted PV array that was announced for the Saemangeum area by South Korean President Moon Jae-in in November.More: South Korea has added 1.64 GW of solar so far this year

13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Let’s face it — most consumers think going to the bank or credit union real pain in the you-know-where. Although financial products and services are important to consumers and definitely have emotional impact, they are not typically seen as “sexy” items which people wish to purchase.Your bank or credit union should take an honest look at the way in which consumers perceive it and answer the question, honestly – “is visiting us a pain?” If consumers, already halfway dreading going to the bank or credit union actually do have a negative experience there, it’s bad for your brand and your bottom line.Examine the consumer visit from their point of view. Start with the basics. Is your facility easy to see from the road? Is it attractive (for example, landscaping, paint, etc.)? Once inside, how quickly are your consumers greeted? Do you have a queue system and, if so, does it ask consumers to take it upon themselves to sign in or does your staff take the initiative and handle that for them?Digging deeper, you should next examine subsequent steps in a typical consumer interaction. How long is the average wait time? Do you provide some type of beverage (water, coffee, etc.)? Once a consumer is seated with a representative, is that person skilled and trained to ask questions or are they simply an order-taker with no real drive? continue reading »

Meanwhile, the state’s salt refineries have started doubling salaries to lure staff back. But experts say the workers may not return anytime soon.”A lot of the manufacturing industry is actually located in the very states where the pandemic’s impact has been great [such as] Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Delhi,” Professor Santosh Mehrotra at Jawaharlal Nehru University told AFP.”Now these are the areas where naturally workers have left in large numbers… They will not return in a hurry.”There are an estimated 100 million migrant workers — nearly a fifth of the labour force and contributing to an estimated 10 percent of GDP — across the nation of 1.3 billion people.Many are employed as cheap labour across a vast range of sectors including textiles, construction, mines and small businesses.But when the lockdown was suddenly imposed by the government, many found themselves almost immediately out of a job and unable to pay rent.Without public transport after interstate trains and buses were halted, some embarked on long journeys home on foot in the scorching heat, with around 200 dying from exhaustion or accidents according to the non-profit Save Life Foundation.The government eventually organised special train services to take millions stranded in cities back to their home states.Experts say India’s economy — Asia’s third-biggest and already stuttering before the pandemic — will be badly hit in the short-term at a minimum by the lack of workers.The economy is forecast to grow at its slowest pace in 11 years, and analysts are bracing for a severe contraction in the current quarter.The government has announced a 20 trillion rupee ($266 billion) stimulus package but observers do not expect much of a boost, at least not in the short term, while there are fears the exodus of migrant workers may have set the economy back by 15 years.”Their departure itself has been traumatic. They have gone through many indignities,” said Mehrotra.”Some of them may come back, but many of them will look for work not in metro cities but in small towns close by which are less impacted by the virus.”It is unclear if they will find jobs back home, with the rural economy already in distress owing to low crop prices and yields.But Mohammed Naseem Aktar, who lost his job as a worker at an export house in New Delhi, told AFP he was willing to take the risk.”I had no work for two months here and I faced a lot of problems,” the 21-year-old said as he queued up to register for a train seat.”The disease is showing no signs of a let-up. Now I just want to be with my family in the village.”Topics : An acute shortage of workers has turned the roar of machines to a soft hum at a footwear factory near New Delhi, just one of thousands in India struggling to restart after an exodus of migrant workers during the virus lockdown.India is slowly emerging from strict containment measures imposed in late March as leaders look to revive the battered economy, but manufacturers don’t have enough workers to man the machinery.The big cities — once an attractive destination for workers from poor, rural regions — have been hit by reverse migration as millions of labourers flee back to their far-flung home villages, some uncertain if they will ever return. “Sixty percent of our labourers have gone back. How can we run a production unit with just one-third of our workforce?” asked Sanjeev Kharbanda, a senior executive with Aqualite Industries, which owns the footwear factory in the northern state of Haryana.Kharbanda said the company’s sports shoe unit had been sitting idle as there were no skilled workers to operate the high-tech machines.”We are running just one shift now. The cost of production has gone up and our profits are going down,” he said, a conveyor belt carrying semi-finished flip-flops running slowly in the background. In Gujarat state’s Surat city — where 90 percent of the world’s diamonds are cut and polished — many factories have been unable to open after more than two-thirds of workers fled, Surat diamond association president Babu Kathiriya told AFP.
Defined contribution (DC) pension schemes are “coming of age” in the UK, despite evidence that defined benefit (DB) pension schemes still represent a major burden for the country’s largest companies.Investment consulting firm Willis Towers Watson (WTW) published a report his morning claiming that DC schemes have become the “new normal”.The report, which focused on the provision of DC pensions by FTSE 350 companies, found that 98% of new employees at companies in the index join DC schemes.In contrast, DB pension scheme deficits at FTSE 350 companies were £191bn (€222bn) at the end of last year, according to JLT Employee Benefits. This is more than twice the level at the end of 2015. Funding also dropped between 2015 and 2016, from 88% to 78%. Deficits are susceptible to volatility in UK gilts, but have been generally growing as liabilities have grown faster than assets in recent years. Companies discount liabilities on the basis of high-grade corporate bonds.Although it is difficult to estimate the aggregate level of yearly contributions to DB schemes, WTW suggested that the UK’s largest companies may be paying twice as much to reduce DB deficits, compared to the amount they contribute to fund DC schemes.This was despite the sharp decline in the share of companies still offering DB schemes to new or existing employees, as well as the planned increases in statutory DC contribution rates under auto-enrolment legislation.The WTW report found that 54% of FTSE 100 companies still offer DB pensions to existing employees, down from 84% in 2009. Only 27% of FTSE 250 employers are keeping DB schemes open to existing employees. As much as 37% of FTSE 100 companies have closed DB schemes to new accrual, while 42% FTSE 250 companies have done so. Median annual contributions to DC schemes at FTSE 100 companies were £18m in 2016, increasing almost four times over since 2009. The corresponding figure for FTSE 250 companies is £6m, compared to £2m two years ago.Median DC plan assets at FTSE 100 companies were £201m at the end of last year, showing a large increase from £92m at the end of 2015. This was partly explained by the appreciation of non-sterling assets due to the decline of sterling. Median DC plan assets grew from £35m at the end of 2015 to £75m at the end of last year.Richard Sweetman, senior consultant at Willis Towers Watson, said: “While the ongoing cost of DB will remain a major issue for employers, this survey provides hard evidence of the speed with which DC provision is establishing a dominant role in the UK pensions landscape.”However, other recent surveys suggested that UK corporates were struggling to meet the requirement commitment to develop DC pensions, as they weigh important decisions on how to fund DB deficits.JLT recently said that dealing with legacy defined benefit (DB) pension schemes represented a “drag” on developing adequate DC offerings.Consultancy firm Hymans Robertson found that only 9 out of 100 UK trustees focused on the true cash flow position of their schemes, while funding gaps remained the main concern.The UK government last week launched a green paper on how to ease the burden of DB schemes on employers, setting the scene for reforming the provision of DB pensions.The WTW study highlighted that, although FTSE 350 companies are generally happy with their commitment to DC pensions, there is increasing attention on improving DC offerings.Sweetman said: “We also see an appetite to look at ways of making arrangements work better, particularly in identifying the best vehicle for delivering DC (as seen in the emergence of master trusts), restructuring contributions to allow wider savings options, improving investment strategies, and introducing enhanced member information and support around adequacy and retirement options.”
