Study finds plenty of brownfield sites in Nevada to host green energy

first_imgStudy finds plenty of brownfield sites in Nevada to host green energy FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Las Vegas Review-Journal:Nevada could meet the new clean energy benchmark approved by voters Tuesday without tearing up any undisturbed land, according to an analysis by The Nature Conservancy and the Rocky Mountain Institute.The Silver State is home to more than enough old mines and other former industrial sites to accommodate the new solar, wind and geothermal plants that will be needed if Nevada electricity providers are eventually required to get at least 50 percent of their power from renewable sources, the analysis shows.The Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Institute used existing U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data on potentially contaminated brownfield sites in Nevada to identify more than 2.8 million acres of already disturbed land that appears ripe for renewable energy development. That land has the potential to produce enough geothermal energy to meet about one-third of the new green energy standard, enough wind energy to meet the standard two times over and enough solar energy to meet the standard 20 times over, analysts said.And because those brownfield sites — a term used for any previously developed land that is not currently in use — were already used for industrial purposes, many of them already have access to roads and transmission lines.“We should do everything we can to take advantage of this great overlooked land resource that Nevada has to support clean energy goals,” said John Zablocki, Southern Nevada conservation director for The Nature Conservancy. “Achieving that requires focused policy work to break down barriers.”More: Nevada’s mines could hold key to Question 6 energy standardlast_img read more

SHOCK CALL-UP! Tottenham youngster replaces injured Lallana in England squad

first_imgTottenham midfielder Ryan Mason has been handed his debut call-up to the England senior squad in place of the injured Adam Lallana.The Liverpool man was forced to pull out of the team after suffering a groin problem in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United, which saw him substituted at half-time.And the Football Association has subsequently announced 23-year-old Mason will join Spurs team-mate Harry Kane in the Three Lions side for upcoming clashes with Lithuania and Italy.It’s a surprising selection by manager Roy Hodgson as, while he has become a regular member of Tottenham’s first-team this season, Mason has never been drafted into the England Under-21s team.Meanwhile, Fabian Delph did not meet with the rest of his international team-mates at St George’s Park on Monday afternoon.The Aston Villa midfielder is currently suffering from a stomach bug, though he is expected to join the squad ahead of Friday’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania.Reports had also suggested Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge was struggling with a hip injury, but he joined the squad in Burton and there was no mention of the frontman in the statement the FA issued on Monday evening.“Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason has been drafted into Roy Hodgson’s England squad,” the statement read.“The inclusion of the 23-year-old follows the withdrawal of Liverpool’s Adam Lallana through injury.“Mason, a regular for Spurs this season, has previously represented the Three Lions at U19 and U20 level.“Lallana wasn’t the only absentee as the senior squad gathered at St. George’s Park on Monday afternoon in preparation for the forthcoming fixtures against Lithuania and Italy.“Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph remained at home with a sickness bug but is expected to link up with the team later this week.” Tottenham midfielder Ryan Mason 1last_img read more
