Ørsted sees potential for 30GW of offshore wind in South Korea

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Yonhap News Agency:Ørsted A/S, the world’s largest offshore wind power producer, said Thursday it is seeking business opportunities in South Korea following the country’s plan to go green in power generation.The Danish state-run energy firm said it has recently completed the establishment of its Korean branch following South Korea’s announcement of a “Renewable Energy 3020 Plan,” which aims to raise the proportion of renewable energy supply to 20 percent of total power output by the year 2030.“We believe South Korea has a big potential in offshore wind power generation,” said Park Jung-min, head of the Korean market development at Ørsted Asia Pacific. “We can help South Korea meet its renewable energy goal.”South Korea targets to have a total renewable energy capacity of 63.8 gigawatts (GW) by 2030, with 17.7 GW coming from wind power. Ørsted claimed that South Korea will particularly thrive from offshore wind power generation considering its geographical characteristics.“South Korea is a peninsula surrounded by three seas,” Park said. “We estimate that South Korea’s potential offshore wind power capacity can reach 30 GW.”Ørsted, which has installed more than 1,200 offshore wind turbines globally, has previously signed multibillion-dollar contracts with South Korean companies, including POSCO and LS Cable & Systems Ltd., as suppliers for its offshore wind projects. Ørsted said it further wants to expand that partnership with local companies.More: Danish renewable energy firm taps into S.

Heisler: As NBA offenses change, so do 2018 draft projections

first_imgIf bigger remains better, it only applies to the elite, no longer to undersized ones who are pretty good or can’t step away from the basket. NBA teams now rarely play two bigs at once and often play none. Houston, the envy of all and model for most, has lithe, 6-foot-9 Clint Capela at center, who, for all his numbers, plays only 27 minutes per game.The Rockets switch everything on defense, even if Chris Paul and James Harden wind up in the post on opponents towering over them, known as “a mouse in the house.” The Rockets don’t care, knowing they can spread you out farther than you can guard at the other end and slice, dice and shoot over you.Bigs used to be centers or power forwards with the difference all but indistinguishable, as with Tim Duncan and David Robinson. Now they’re divided into “rim protectors” and “stretch fours” – and you better be one or the other. Jahlil Okafor, the No. 3 pick in 2015 who has rare low-post skills, is a dinosaur, warming the bench in Brooklyn after being lost in Philadelphia.This is an ultra-deep draft but with college players being fitted for new NBA designations, there’s little consensus about who will go where, another new development at this stage of their season.There’s a dropoff after the top six. After that, notes an Eastern Conference GM, “Everyone has the potential to be a guy. Someone is going to be the next Donovan Mitchell. Someone is going to be the next Malik Monk. That’s just the way it works.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Not that their rookie season is definitive. The Lakers’ Julius Randle was ticketed to ride after his third season before clawing back ahead of Larry Nance Jr. in his fourth.That’s just the way it works. This is where it starts.1. Luca Doncic, 6-8, 228, Real Madrid (ESPN: 1, NBA Draft Net: 5)Landmark potential: ESPN has him ahead of all the quality bigs. He comes with big numbers, unlike most Euros who arrived in their teens before becoming major contributors against older players at home. Says the GM: “By far the best wing in the draft.”2. DeAndre Ayton, 7-0, 243, Fr., Arizona (E: 2, N: 1)Another landmark because in the old days, he’d have been No. 1 by a mile. Chiseled and athletic, he looks like the second coming of Shaquille O’Neal. A monster on offense (20.3 points, 62 percent shooting), he’s not as explosive as the young Shaq, averaging 1.9 blocked shots per game – O’Neal averaged 4.6 at LSU – but he has the size and reach (9-3) to be a defensive presence. Not that you can see him with the NCAA scandal-haunted Wildcats already out.3. Mo Bamba, 7-0, 220, Fr., Texas (E: 3, N: 5)He’s a shot-blocker (3.8) with a freakish 9-6 standing reach, but his offense is raw to missing. He’s athletic with wide shoulders that suggest his reedy body will fill out. He’s a top-five lock with few rim protectors offering his upside.4. Marvin Bagley III, 6-11, 234, Fr., Duke (E: 4, N: 4)He’s a primo stretch four. Subtract an inch-and-a-half for being measured in sneakers and he’s 6-9-1/2. Averaging 1.0 blocked shot, less than half of teammate Wendell Carter, but he plays big (10.6 rebounds), scores (20.7) and shoots a fabulous 61 percent (36 percent on 3-pointers).5. Jaren Jackson Jr., 6-11, 242, Fr., Michigan State (E:5, N:2)He could climb even higher. The youngest of the top prospects, he won’t be 19 until September and isn’t as far along, averaging 11.3 points, but he could be another “Unicorn” a la Kristaps Porzingis. He blocks shots (3.2 in only 22 minutes per game), makes 40 percent of this 3-point attempts with rare touch for a young big (79 percent on free throws).6. Michael Porter, 6-10, 215, Fr., Missouri (E:6, N:3)He’s a big skilled small forward but after Missouri’s Friday night exit he played just two games after missing most of the season.7. Trae Johnson, 6-2, 176, Fr., Oklahoma (E:7, N:9)Tyke that he is, he exploded on the scene, leading the NCAA in scoring (27.4) and assists (8.8), looking like S-S-S … No, he’s not Steph Curry, but he has a similar profile: slight build, great shooter who makes plays for others. He’s only a good shooter (36 percent from 3-point range), not an all-timer like Steph (41 percent at Davidson, 44 percent in the NBA), but he could be nice player with opponents no longer stacking entire defenses to stop him.9. Collin Sexton, 6-2, 183, Fr., Alabama (E:10, N:8)An athletic point guard who was highly regarded when he was struggling, he’s exploding late, averaging 25 points in his last five games.10. Wendell Carter Jr., 6-10, 260, Fr., Duke (E:8, N:7)A power player who’s 6-8-1/2 in stocking feet could spell d-i-n-o-s-a-u-r, but he has outperformed his measurements. He’d be a nice pick this far down.11. Mikal Bridges, 6-7, 200, Jr., Villanova (E:11, N:11)Another new type, the 3-and-D wing. He’s an OK scorer with a so-so handle, but he’s making 42 percent of his 3-point shots. If you look at him just right, you can see Trevor Ariza, who helped create the 3-and-D role as a Laker.12. Miles Bridges, 6-6, 225, Soph., Michigan State (E:9, N:13)He’s a power forward moving outside. Making 36 percent of his 3-point shots – and an eye-catching 88 percent of his free throws (better than Curry in two of three seasons at Davidson) – but he shoots off his tip-toes rather than get his own shot with jumpers off the dribble. Still, after Draymond Green, no one discounts Tom Izzo-coached, medium-sized, tough-by-definition tweeners.13. Kevin Knox, 6-9, 205, Fr., Kentucky (E:12, N:10)We’re used to seeing multiple Kentucky players in the lottery, but this season’s best looks closer to Trey Lyles than Anthony Davis.14. Robert Williams, 6-9, 237, Soph., Texas A&M (E:14, N:17)He’s averaged just 10-12 points per game in his two seasons. Admirers see a lob-dunking DeAndre Jordan, Jordan Bell or Capela, but there are a lot of Nerlens Noels for every one of those. As with the Clippers’ undersized Montrezl Harrell, whatever the era, it still comes down to your head and heart.center_img Scouting the March Madness …For the next three weeks the action in basketball won’t be in the NBA, largely devoted to seeding battles, but the college game as the next group of prospects make their debut on the big stage.The scouting mission has gotten dicier with NBA teams playing ever faster and smaller. Rookie of the Year lock Donovan Mitchell went No. 13 to Utah, barely making the lottery. Lakers surprise Kyle Kuzma went No. 27, barely making the first round.The revolution is rewriting basketball’s oldest rule – that it’s a big man’s game.last_img read more
