The project aims to make Limerick, Ireland and Trondheim, Norway EU Smart Cities with the potential of the initiatives and renewable energy technology replicated in the project’s 13 follower cities around Europe. A key project now is GKinetic’s role as a consortium partner for the EU Horizon 2020 funded +CityxChange project. Posted: about 1 year ago Irish hydrokinetic turbine developer GKinetic Energy has successfully secured an Indonesian patent. This would reduce the need for backup generation such as diesel generators. According to GKinetic, the Indonesian energy market holds huge potential for hydrokinetic solutions such as its turbine. Categories: Research & Development “Many of these islands consist of remote villages with people living without reliable sustainable power. “A solution such as the GKinetic hydrokinetic turbine could provide these remote communities with 24/7 clean energy,” the company said. GKinetic Wraps Up Scale Model Trials at IFREMER GKinetic also has patents in Europe, Australia, China as well as the USA. It enables the company to enter key markets with viable tidal energy potential to further develop the technology. GKinetic wrapped up several research and development projects in 2019, continuing to improve and scale up the turbine technology. +Cityxchange is in full swing and GKinetic is currently finalising a detailed proposal on how the hydrokinetic turbines could be deployed in the city as part of a positive energy block.
Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error EL SEGUNDO — Once the Lakers gathered in the locker room, coach Luke Walton did not just express his displeasure with his team’s play.He became so disgusted with the Lakers’ 30-point halftime deficit to the Clippers on Tuesday that he informed his starters they would begin the second half on the bench. Walton then turned to rookie forward Brandon Ingram.“It (stinks) for you that you have to sit out, too,” Walton said. “You’re out there playing your tail off.”Ingram had just 10 points on 5-of-8 shooting in 21 minutes, leaving Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell to openly question Walton’s tactic. As Russell said, “I don’t think he deserved that.” Before Ingram finished with a team-leading 21 points and five rebounds while shooting 8 for 14 from the field against the Clippers, Walton found the normally quiet Ingram be just as incredulous.“He looked mad, but he should’ve been mad,” Walton said. “I think he understood it.”That’s because the Lakers (20-52) enter Friday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves (28-42) at Staples Center with Walton wanting Ingram to take on a bigger leadership role.“It’s part of your responsibility to make sure everyone is ready to play,” Walton said. “It’s unfair that it happened for him with the way he was playing. I thought it was important to keep the message that this was about team first and individual second.”After scheduling practice on a previously scheduled day off on Wednesday, Walton called Ingram’s effort “awesome.” Walton added Ingram “busted his tail” and finished first in most of the team’s sprints. Though Ingram has allowed his work habits to speak louder than his soft words, Walton wants Ingram to raise his voice. “Even if you’re playing well yourself, we need more out of you. Grab someone by the jersey, lift your teammates up,” Walton said. “It was more his work ethic that allows him to be that guy. I don’t know how vocal he’s ever going to get. But we’re going to keep pushing him to keep seeing what we can get out of him with that side of the leadership role.”Finger pointingAfter the Lakers lost to Cleveland on Sunday by only five points, Walton told his players he “was really proud of the way they played.” Walton openly wondered if that praise contributed to the Lakers’ 24-point loss to the Clippers.“Maybe that let up a little bit on that hunger and desire to get that win,” Walton said. “It shouldn’t be the case.”Walton has praised his players even in losses if he feels they have shown growth in their play.“That’s the message we give, but we still want to win a game,” Walton said. “We’ve been doing this for a long time. It’s nice to get rewarded with wins every once in a while.”Taking attendanceMagic Johnson wished he could honor the Lakers’ past by attending Shaquille O’Neal’s statue unveiling on Friday outside of Staples Center. But as the Lakers’ president of basketball operations, Johnson wants to help the team’s future. So instead of attending O’Neal’s statue unveiling, Johnson will be in Michigan to scout the NCAA Tournament game between UCLA and Kentucky.Injury updateLakers center Timofey Mozgov missed the end of Wednesday’s practice after spraining his left ankle. Though the Lakers technically listed him as questionable for Friday’s game against Minnesota, Mozgov will not play after receiving healthy scratches in the past eight games. Walton has shut him down for the rest of the season to give more minutes to his younger players.
“Claressa and I go way back,” Harrison said of her fellow two-time Olympic gold medalist from the 2012 and 2016 Summer Games. “We both agree that if it’s a money fight, of course we’ll fight each other.”Any such scenario must wait for the time being. Right now, it’s about Harrison’s first major MMA landmark coming to fruition.“I’ve waited long enough and I’m ready to just get in there and do what I do,” she said. “I want to go down as one of the greatest to ever do it.” “I was just disappointed that I didn’t finish her,” Harrison admitted to Sporting News about her 2019 PFL season-opening unanimous decision win over Larissa Pacheco. “I want to go out there instill my will in dominating fashion, I want to get my TKO, KO or submission and that was the first time I ever went to a decision.“I just hold myself to a higher standard,” she piled on. “I felt like I could’ve done better, I should’ve done better and I didn’t. That’s why I was upset.”Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearHarrison channeled that disappointment by blowing through Morgan Frier in July and Bobbi Jo Dalziel in October — both via first-round submission — to punch her spot in the PFL championship. There, she’ll face Brazil’s Pacheco once again — this time with the women’s lightweight title and $1 million on the line. It will all take place at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve.This time around, Harrison wants the finish that eluded her in their initial meeting and the queen’s haul of prizes that come with it.“Since then, I’ve grown tremendously as a fighter,” Harrison said. “I’ve grown even tremendously as a person. I’m excited to show the world the Kayla Harrison that I’ve become.”Harrison has been aided in that journey by training with Amanda Nunes, the UFC bantamweight and featherweight champion who is widely regarded as the greatest women’s MMA fighter of all time.In a recent “Road to the PFL Championship” video, Nunes detailed why there’s no reason Harrison shouldn’t walk into 2020 with the women’s lightweight title and $1 million in tow.“We train together and she came to American Top Team and she evolved a lot,” Nunes says in the PFL clip. “She comes from judo. Over here, she’ll be able to put it together with wrestling, jiu-jitsu, striking, make a good strategy and become a MMA fighter. Definitely, she’s going to be the next PFL champion.”That said, Pacheco feels — much like Harrison — that she didn’t get to adequately train for their first fight, on just a day’s notice. Harrison has heard Pacheco vowing to knock her out in the PFL championship, and that’s only fueling the American Olympic hero’s desire to win emphatically that much more.“I want to win in dominating fashion,” Harrison said. “I want to start the New Year with a bang so to speak. I’m going to break her and she’s going to crack.”MORE: Bellator 237 results: Fedor Emelianenko knocks ‘Rampage’ out in first roundUsing New Year’s Eve as a springboard for more MMA greatness in 2020 and beyond sounds like the perfect scenario for Harrison.“It’d be a magical moment. It’s the end of a decade. It’d be the final rebirth of myself I feel like,” Harrison said, explaining what it’d mean to her MMA career. “I was an Olympic athlete for so long and now I’m a fighter and I’ll finally have my first world title. It’s a first step on a very long journey to bigger and better things.”Just like her American Top Team stablemate, Nunes, Harrison has expressed interest in a super bout with women’s boxing sensation Claressa Shields. That could be one of the “bigger and better things” from Harrison to keep an eye on down the line. Kayla Harrison was dejected, her head down and tears welling up in her eyes. In the moment, one would never have thought she just had her hand raised in victory.Yet that was the scene in May when the two-time judo Olympic gold medalist the distance for the first time in her budding mixed martial arts career. And the 29-year-old didn’t like it one bit at all.
