FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PV Magazine:Solar-rich Gujarat has raised its renewable energy ambition by aiming for at least 30 GW of renewable energy generation capacity by 2022 – some 17% of the national 175 GW target by that point.“We plan to increase capacity to 30,000 MW by 2022,” finance minister Nitin Patel said while presenting the Gujarat budget in the state capital of Gandhinagar. “Of this, 20,000 MW will be used in Gujarat and 10,000 MW will be sold to other states.”The state minister also announced the allocation of Rs1,000 crore for a new rooftop solar scheme that aims to provide installations to 2 lakh families. Under the program, households will receive a subsidy worth 40% of the cost of rooftop systems with a capacity of up to 3 kW and a 20% subsidy for systems with capacities of 3-10 kW.According to the Ministry of New & Renewable Energy’s state by state breakdown of the national renewable energy target, Gujarat was slated to achieve 8,020 MW of solar generation capacity by 2022 plus 8.8 GW of wind power and 255 MW of biomass facilities.Earlier this year, the Gujarat state government announced it would add 3 GW of renewables capacity annually until 2022 – 2 GW from solar and 1 GW of wind. Since the first Vibrant Gujarat summit in 2003, more than 100 investments have seen Rs40,000 crore pour into renewables in the state.More: Gujarat targets 30 GW of renewable capacity by 2022 Gujarat sets 30GW renewable energy goal by 2022, 17% of India’s overall target
Agilent Technologies announced a new collaboration on Monday with the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience to develop an Agilent Center of Excellence in Biomolecular Characterization. The collaboration between the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience and Agilent Technologies will combine both the academic and industry aspects of science. Photo from USC NewsThe Agilent CoE, which will be housed in Michelson Hall, will provide students and local customers with access to scientific researchers, Agilent instrumentation and technologies all in one scientific environment.“Agilent’s collaboration with the Michelson Center is an excellent example of how academia and industry can work together, sharing knowledge and expertise to shorten the timeline between scientific discoveries and real-world applications,” Darlene Solomon, Agilent’s senior vice president and chief technology officer, said to BusinessWire. “Convergent bioscience research requires successful collaboration across multiple disciplines — a holistic approach that is central to Agilent’s view of the future.”Michelson Center principal investigator Valery Fokin is an essential member in Agilent’s collaboration with the state-of-the-art facility. The Fokin lab will continue to help develop collaborative drug discovery projects and focus on molecular level biological interactions and chemical reactivity. Projects include the chemical synthesis of screening and focused libraries and biological assay implementation as well as the development of targeted drug delivery systems, diagnostics and vaccines.This collaboration will involve some of the world’s most influential biomedical scientists, according to BusinessWire. Their research on structural biology and cancer metastasis have led to significant advances in medical treatments and pharmaceutical drugs.“As convergent bioscience becomes a major contributor to scientific knowledge … academic and industry collaboration will play a key role,” Stephen Bradforth, a Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences professor, said to BusinessWire. “I’m pleased that Agilent has the vision to support our efforts in this important emerging research field.”
