Coaches appointed for new U16 girls’ squads

first_img14 Jun 2013 Coaches appointed for new U16 girls’ squads England Golf has appointed ten experienced golf coaches to spearhead its revamped U16 girls’ regional coaching programme from September 2013. The ten coaches and their regions are:   JJ Vallely – North Region Andrew Nicholson – Yorkshire Region Steve Astle – North West Region Matt Whall – West Midlands Region John Mellor – East Midlands Region Roly Hitchcock – East Region Mark Day – Thames Valley Region Scott Godfrey – South West Region Alex Saary – South Region Matt Antell – South East Region The new programme will replace the current Birdie and Select pathway with ten regional U16 girls’ squads. Players will each receive 20 days of coaching and an equivalent of 10 days physical development. The changes follow a successful restructuring of the boys’ regional coaching programme in 2012/13. England Golf performance director Nigel Edwards commented: “I’m delighted with the coaches selected to help us take the programme to the next level. It was a tough recruitment process and the competition was very strong.” The successful candidates will join the U16 boys’ regional coaches for an induction and training session in August at England Golf headquarters in Woodhall Spa before identifying their squad for the winter training ahead.

Salford Group acquires AerWay product line from SAF-Holland Canada Ltd.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Salford Group, a global leader in the manufacturing of tillage, seeding, and fertilizer application equipment, is expanding its tillage product line through the acquisition of AerWay advanced aeration products, manufactured by SAF-HOLLAND Canada Ltd.“We are very pleased to bring AerWay products under the Salford tillage umbrella,” said Geof Gray, Chief Executive Officer of Salford Group. “The acquisition of AerWay expands our niche tillage product lineup to offer more vertical tillage and pastureland management tools that appeal to our livestock and mixed farming customers.”Gray acknowledged that Salford and AerWay share many objectives as well. “Both companies focus on innovative designs to meet customer needs, create tools with multi-use capabilities and emphasize soil productivity and management, with vertical tillage/minimal disturbance tools and topdressing or cover cropping being an important part of that,” he said.Gray also noted that Salford and AerWay have worked well together in the past as AerWay tools already use Salford harrow packages and AerWay is capable of carrying Salford Valmar attachments. “Our plan is to continue collaborating for quality engineering in the future.”AerWay comes to Salford from its manufacturer SAF-HOLLAND Canada Limited who originally started selling AerWay in 1983. In 1982, HOLLAND-HITCH acquired the distribution rights to a solid tine aeration device named Groundhog that was conceived in New Zealand by a farmer who had a serious compaction and water run off problem on his pasture land. While the original concept was excellent there were many changes needed and the new designed machine was named AerWay which embodied the solid tine improvements.Today AerWay’s ability to solve tillage and pasture needs continue and are broadly recognized. The product distinguishes itself as a well-engineered tool and users and proponents alike started referring to the tillage and aeration results as “Aerwaying” the ground. In many circles the AerWay became known as the only tool that solved their compaction, aeration and water incorporation problems.Over the last 32 years AerWay has added many new features to meet the challenges of today’s agricultural demands. It has expanded its product line, adding the CCT (Close Couple Tandem), ATS (Aeration Top-dress Seeder), and its most recent the Titan CTS (Complete Tillage System). In addition AerWay has a line of horticulture equipment for orchards and vineyards and turf equipment for the golf and sports turf market.Kim Baechler, President of SAF-HOLLAND Canada Limited states “This is truly an exciting opportunity for the AerWay product line, and many of the employees that help build AerWay. Under Salford’s world class banner, continued investment in the AerWay design and manufacturing will be assured allowing the product to grow and help farmers and ranchers solve their unique problems”.With close proximity to Salford Group’s Salford, ON headquarters, AerWay will continue to produce equipment in its Norwich, ON facility. Plans also include shared distribution centers to ensure the widest availability of all products globally. The Norwich facility will be the sixth manufacturing location for the Salford Group, adding to existing operations in Salford, Ontario, Osceola, Iowa, Cornelia, Georgia, Elie, Manitoba and Omsk, Russia.last_img read more

Solar and Energy Efficiency Need to Work Together

first_imgEditor’s note: This post originally appeared on the ACEEE Blog. RELATED ARTICLES Deep Energy Retrofits Are Often MisguidedHard Truths of Home Performance: Residential energy retrofit work isn’t cost-effective Steven Nadel is the executive director of the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Despite these incentives, it still generally makes sense to implement as much efficiency as possible when installing generation. To look more closely at this issue, we conducted two illustrative analyses. The first compares the cost per kilowatt hour produced or saved from solar and energy efficiency when done individually or together. The second compares solar technical potential and residential electricity use, with and without efficiency. We find that when efficiency and solar are implemented in tandem, costs are lower, and solar can meet a larger share of residential loads. Cost per kWhFor this comparison, we looked at the average cost per kWh produced from a typical solar system today, the average cost per kWh from residential energy efficiency, and the cost per kWh when efficiency and solar are done together. Our results are summarized in the table below. A solar system costs about 17 to 23 cents per kWh produced (the low-end estimate is based on very sunny Las Vegas, the high-end on Washington, DC). Energy efficiency costs less — about 8 cents per kWh. But when solar and efficiency are combined, the cost is 3 to 6 cents less per kWh than solar alone. Energy efficiency has a lower cost, and it also reduces the size and cost of the needed solar system. PB&J (solar and efficiency) is less expensive than PB (solar) alone.This analysis ignores the federal 30% solar tax credit and also ignores utility incentives that are commonly available for energy efficiency measures. If tax credits and incentives are included, the overall result is still generally the same — a combined approach is less expensive per kWh than solar alone. This is just a simple analysis for typical measures and hence is only useful as a rough approximation.center_img ConclusionEnergy efficiency will generally be less expensive per kWh than solar. And by lowering consumption, energy efficiency will stretch the available rooftop solar resource farther, allowing solar to serve a higher percent of residential consumption while also allowing a smaller and less expensive solar system. These are two simple analyses but they make a clear case that jelly (efficiency) is needed to help peanut butter (solar) do its best. Solar production relative to residential electricity useFor this analysis, we compared estimates of the technical potential for rooftop solar systems in each state (as estimated in a GIS-based analysis by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory) with residential electricity use (from the most recent EIA Residential Energy Consumption Survey or RECS). We looked for states where the solar technical potential in the residential sector was at least 50% of current residential consumption, or of residential consumption if energy efficiency were to reduce consumption by an average of 30%.Our analysis only covers 24 states, as those are the states with detailed data in RECS at the single- or two-state level. Results of our analysis are shown in the map below. With efficiency, 23 out of the 24 states could hit the 50% solar threshold, including six reaching 75% solar (California, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, and Nevada). Without energy efficiency, only nine of the 24 states could meet at least half of the residential load with rooftop solar. Only in two states (California and Colorado) does solar potential exceed 75% of residential consumption. In other words, solar can meet a much larger proportion of residential loads if efficiency is included.Source:ACEEE analysis based on EIA residential energy consumption survey and NREL report on technical potential for rooftop solar systems.This analysis doesn’t include potential growth in electric loads such as from increased use of electric vehicles, or conversion of gas and oil space- and water-heating systems to heat pumps. Details of our analysis, including a case where all gas and oil space-heating systems are converted to heat pumps can be found here. In this alternative case, only two states meet the 50% threshold without efficiency, while 12 states meet the threshold with efficiency.As with our first analysis, this is a rough analysis that assumes all of the solar potential is achieved and that all homes implement energy efficiency. Also, this simple analysis ignores the fact that some homes can produce more solar power than they use while other homes are not suitable for solar, such as those heavily shaded by trees or that do not face south. This analysis should be considered a yardstick and not a definitive analysis. Energy efficiency and solar advocates have on occasion butted heads over which option should be implemented in homes and buildings first and how much should be installed before the other is considered. Here at the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy we believe that, like market solutions vs. energy efficiency programs, this is a false choice. Both are valuable and can, and should, work together as an integrated solution to create cleaner and cheaper energy.While energy efficiency is just as clean as solar when it comes to emissions, efficiency by itself can’t produce energy for customers looking for a clean energy option, and solar without energy efficiency can’t reach the full extent of its potential.However, in recent years, some solar companies and some consumers have been employing a solar-first strategy in the residential sector — installing solar systems without paying much attention to energy efficiency. This strategy has been spurred in part by substantial solar tax credits, net-metering rules in place in most states, and the availability of solar financing that reduces or even eliminates the initial purchase price, replacing the up-front cost with monthly payments that extend over many years.last_img read more
