Dublin, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Distributed Generation (DG) - Global Market Trajectory & Analytics" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The global market for Distributed Generation (DG) is projected to reach US$183.2 billion by 2025, driven by the growing focus shed on decarbonizing power generation and transmission. Ambitious clean energy targets aimed at increasing the share of renewables in the energy mix is also helping bring DG into the spotlight as the energy architecture of the future. Defined as energy generated close to the point of consumption by independent or grid connected microgrids, DG offers a host of benefits that promise to accelerate the pace of the global energy transition to a cleaner future. DG systems are rapidly proliferating the residential as well as commercial and industrial sectors in the form of solar photovoltaic panels, small wind turbines, natural-gas-fired fuel cells, emergency backup generators, municipal solid waste incineration, biomass combustion or cofiring and combined heat and power systems, among others. The rise of microgrids will emerge as a disruptive force breaking the once centralized electricity infrastructure into a more distributed system. Microgrids are localized groups of small, self-contained electricity grids with their own electricity source primarily renewables such as solar or wind. With deregulation of the electricity sector gaining momentum worldwide, alternatives to centrally planned power grids are emerging as attractive investments for private investors. An example is the growing interest in private microgrid implementation. Private deployment of microgrids is growing with companies building their own microgrids as power interruptions and blackouts become increasingly common and frequent as a result of extreme weather conditions compounded by aging energy infrastructure. Distributed energy has the potential to become consistently cheaper as compared to conventional power which is saddled by fixed costs of the massive centralized infrastructure. The price differentials, in the coming years, will result in increasing number of consumers migrating to alternative grids, leaving centralized utility grids to collapse under their own weight. The United States, China and Europe represent large markets worldwide with a combined share of 70.1% of the market. China also ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 11% over the analysis period as the country opens its electricity markets to competition and increased DR investments.Key Topics Covered: I.

A deluge of new orders swept through British businesses in April as the country lifted some of its COVID-19 restrictions, according to a survey on Friday that pointed to a rapid rebound for the pandemic-hit UK economy. The preliminary "flash" reading of the UK Composite Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) rose to 60.0 in April from 56.4 in March, its highest reading since November 2013. Both services and manufacturing companies increased staffing this month in preparation, the PMI survey showed.
I know from personal experience that protest has its costs. But by banding together we can stop those who would subvert democracy Bill Russell, Muhammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at the ‘Cleveland Summit’ in 1967 when they discussed how sports and politics work together. Photograph: Bettmann/Bettmann Archive Athletes, politicians and even corporate America have been speaking out about the recent Republican-led legislation in Georgia that seems to target Black citizens by making it harder for them to vote. But for all the sabre-rattling, finger-wagging and stern letter-writing, it was Major League Baseball who actually took direct action on 2 April by moving their All-Star Game from Georgia to Colorado, stating, “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” Republican senators Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and Mike Lee – three of Donald Trump’s most notorious sock puppets – immediately tried to punish the league’s defense of democracy by proposing legislation to remove MLB’s antitrust exemption. Didn’t work. But their unspoken threat to all professional sports leagues who may wish to join the fray loomed large. After years of bullying their athletes for their passive protests, most sports teams became “woke” following last summer’s massive Black Lives Matter marches of between 15 and 26 million people, the largest protests in US history. It was a glorious phoenix-like ascension of sports leagues to the heights of social morality. Today, we need that commitment more than ever, because if there were ever a case of Black lives not mattering, it’s the nearly 250 laws since the November election that have been passed around the country designed to marginalize Black voters. It’s time for all sports leagues – who are supposed to embody the American ideals of teamwork, fair play and level playing fields – to join as one voice to represent their players, their fans and their Constitution in stopping this attempt to steal democracy. In the past, sports leagues have been disjointed in responding to social injustice, either by ignoring it or by tepidly supporting general reform someday in the future. More recently, the NBA has led an aggressive and active response to fight inequities. Other leagues from major sports have also launched worthy campaigns. But real power for change will happen only if they all coordinate in an effort to condemn the restrictive laws in every state that passes them, and take concrete action to boycott those states – even if it means some financial sacrifice. Economic pressure is an effective means of persuasion, not just from the millions of dollars lost from the All-Star Game, but also from other groups that are inspired to take action by not holding a convention or not building a corporate headquarters or even not vacationing in Georgia. Ten days after the MLB’s announcement, Hollywood star Will Smith and director Antoine Fuqua announced they were moving their movie Emancipation from Georgia to Louisiana, explaining, “We cannot in good conscience provide economic support to a government that enacts regressive voting laws that are designed to restrict voter access.” Good conscience is exactly what we need. Georgians I admire and respect, like Stacey Abrams (our president someday, I hope), understandably are against a boycott, arguing that it will hurt the people we’re actually trying to help: minorities who depend on sporting events, the movie industry, tourism etc for their income. While that’s true, there’s a much greater damage to all the Black people in Georgia and other states. Yes, some will lose out on some income, which is no small thing. But without this action, they, their families, their children and Black people throughout the country will lose their political voice and power. Not only do laws like this diminish their political clout it tells the rest of the country – and the world – that it’s OK to treat Blacks as second-class citizens because it’s legal. The longer we wait and debate and threaten, the more emboldened Republican legislatures in other states become to expand their campaign of racism. Sadly, it’s not just racism that they are promoting. They’ve declared war on many marginalized groups. Senators Cruz and Hawley, who threatened MLB over their move, revealed their true agenda when they recently joined four other Republicans in voting against a bill designed to stem anti-Asian American hate crimes. It passed 92-6. Also targeted by Republican legislatures are the LGBTQ+ community. In 2019, states introduced 19 anti-transgender bills. Only four months into 2021, 33 states have introduced a record-breaking 117 anti-transgender bills. This year has also seen a record number of bills restricting a woman’s reproductive autonomy, with 516 new abortion restrictions. Clearly, what happens in Georgia doesn’t stay in Georgia. The Republican Flu infects the rest of the states with a full-frontal assault on everyone who is not a straight white male. If they don’t value you enough to give you full access to voting, then why should they value you at a traffic stop (Daunte Wright), at a grocery store (George Floyd), in your own home (Breonna Taylor)? So, yeah, going after Georgia with all the power at our disposal should be our first priority. That should be followed by boycotting every state that is virtueless-signaling to come join enslaving people of color to the greedy political masters who would subvert democracy. In 1968, I boycotted the Olympics because I didn’t feel I could represent a country that was actively suppressing the civil rights of Black people while beating, jailing and murdering those who spoke out against it. I was in part inspired by my involvement in the Cleveland Summit the year before during which myself and several other famous athletes debated the sincerity of Muhammad Ali boycotting the draft as a conscientious objector. Ali’s decision cost him his heavyweight title, millions of dollars and threatened his imprisonment. Even when the government offered him a deal that would have restored that, he refused. Ali’s choice, and to a much lesser extent my own, gained us nothing and cost us a lot. But in speaking out, in taking direct action, we both focused the nation’s eyes on the disparity in our country and nudged the boulder of civil rights a few feet farther up the mountain. On 10 April, more than 100 CEOs and corporate leaders from airlines, to retailers, to manufacturers and one NFL owner met online to discuss taking action against the bills in Georgia and other states that restrict voting. Among remedies considered was withholding political donations to anyone supporting these bills. No decisions were reached. However, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell warned them to “stay out of politics”, which I hope they remember when McConnell and his GOP acolytes come begging for campaign contributions. It’s the equivalent of telling athletes who voice political opinions to “shut up and dribble”. These Republicans have made it clear that when it comes to politics, Black people should remain silent, business leaders should remain silent and athletes should remain silent. Only they have the right to speak. The thing about athletes is that they love a challenge, they love winning and they aren’t afraid to face any opponent. The time for discussion is over; the time for action is now. To see all the major sports leagues coming together to fight against oppression would be the greatest team-up since the Marvel Universe came together to take out Thanos, another megalomaniac douchebag who thought his twisted will superseded everyone else’s. The GOP would like the marginalized to disappear at the snap of their fingers. Instead, we’re going to make their hate-bills disappear, their hate-rhetoric disappear, and their hate-careers disappear.

The Florida tight end’s physical talents are off the charts. But his style of play also complements the tactical changes of the modern NFL Kyle Pitts can block as well as acting as a threat in the passing game. Photograph: Getty Images As athletes have become bigger, faster and stronger, the term “unicorn” has become deeply rooted in the sports lexicon. In fact, it’s now chucked around with such ease that it’s in danger of losing all meaning. The unicorns are supposed to be the one-offs. The physical “freaks”. The world-class athletes who do things that other world-class athletes can only dream about. When it comes to Kyle Pitts, even a Council of Unicorns would admit the Florida tight end is special. Pitts represents the natural endpoint of the NFL’s latest cycle. Cast your mind back as recently as two decades ago and game-changing tight ends were a rarity. Tight ends used to serve one function: acting as an extra blocker. Occasionally, one would pop up who could both block and receive. He would be treated to 30 or so catch attempts a season and be hailed as a revolutionary. Now, tight ends are the name of the game. The NFL is a matchup league, and if you can find a player big enough to block and nimble enough to serve as a threat in the passing game, you have a true mismatch. Linebackers are too slow to cover them in space; cornerbacks and safeties are too small to bring them down. Rob Gronkowski. Travis Kelce. Jimmy Graham. Antonio Gates. Greg Olsen. The past decade has been the era of the tight end, from New England’s famed two tight-end system at the start of the 2010s to this past season, when 30% of the personnel packages across the league featured two or more tight ends, the highest such figure since NFL Next Gen Stats started tracking the data. Now, along rolls Pitts, the most athletic tight end prospect in history. Run through his numbers and you’d be right to wonder whether you had stumbled across Captain America. Pitts is 6ft 6in, with the hops of a receiver and the wingspan of a Boeing 747. Here is how he stacks up among all tight ends in the crucial pre-draft height-weight-speed measurements since the numbers started to be recorded in 1975: 80th percentile for height 98th percentile for wingspan 93rd percentile for hand size 98th percentile for the 40-yard dash 95th percentile for his 20-yard split 97th percentile for his broad jump. For context: Pitts’s figures easily surpass those of Gronkowski, Kelce and Tony Gonzalez, the three finest tight ends of the modern era, per Mockdraftable. Pitts is more of an out-and-out receiver than a blocker. In last year’s pandemic shortened college football season, he was dominant, posting 43 receptions, 770 yards and 12 touchdowns in just eight games. It’s best not to even think of Pitts as a tight end, in truth. Teams no longer focus on positional designations and instead look at the skillsets of players and where they fit into the overall structure of a scheme. Lance Zierlein of NFL Media has compared Pitts to Calvin Johnson, the legendary Lions wide receiver, such is his threat potency as an outside threat. But, like all of the league’s best flex pieces, Pitts is also good enough as a blocker to be treated as a true tight end in the Gronkowski-Kelce vintage by opposing defenses. By the time draft night rolls around next week, Pitts will most likely be the highest tight end ever selected. Vernon Davis was drafted sixth overall in 2006 and Kellen Winslow II was selected in the same slot two years earlier. But that was at the start of the revolution, when drafting tight ends in the top 10 was still viewed as a poor use of resources. Now, selecting a tight end ahead of a running back or off-ball linebacker is viewed as the smart play. Teams inside and outside the top five are circling. Quarterbacks will go off the board with the first three picks to Jacksonville (Trevor Lawrence), New York (Zach Wilson) and San Francisco (any one of three candidates). After that, every team will have Pitts at least in their thoughts. Pitts is indeed special. Football can be a story of complex schemes and assignments. Pitts makes it easy: he can reach his arms to spots defenders his size cannot. And he is usually quicker than anyone a defense dare line-up across from him. The only answer for a defensive coordinator is to send a second defender or to run a complicated ‘cone’ coverage that relies on three defenders keeping an eye on one receiver. Whichever way you dress it up, it compromises the defensive coverage. A buzzword in football in recent years is “flexibility”. Coaches are sticking less to a unified doctrine and focusing more on the ability to run a little bit of everything from every look imaginable. Pre-snap movement and motions are at an all-time high: the offense showing one look to the defense before shifting to another just before the ball is snapped. The hope is to have the defense reveal its hand before the ball makes its way to the quarterback, eliminating the need for complex reads. All of those old-school, intricate designs are still at work, but more and more of the league is falling into the see-it-throw-it school of thought. To run such a system you need moveable pieces. You need players that force the defense to commit two or three (at least with their eyes) defenders at a time. You need a Tyreek Hill or a Travis Kelce or a Mike Evans or a Christian McCaffrey. You need uncommon size or speed or a combination of both. You need a player who is as comfortable isolated on one side of the field as he is stacked up in close quarters; who can move from the backfield to the perimeter on any given snap; who can serve as the focal point of the offense and help reveal coverages for the quarterback. You need, in essence, a Kyle Pitts. There are never any certainties in the draft. But Pitts is about as close to a sure thing as you can find.

Dublin, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Epoxy Resin Market in Pressure Vessels for Alternative Fuels by Vessel Type, by Application Type, by Vehicle Type, and by Region, Size, Share, Trend, Forecast, & Industry Analysis: 2021-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. This strategic assessment report, from the publisher, provides a comprehensive analysis that reflects today's Epoxy resin market in reality and future possibilities for pressure vessels used in alternative fuels for the forecast period 2021 to 2026. The report segments and analyzes the market in the most detailed and comprehensive manner to provide a panoramic view of the market. The vital data/information provided in the report can play a crucial role for market participants as well as investors in the identification of low-hanging fruits available as well as formulate growth strategies. Epoxy Resin Market in Pressure Vessels for Alternative Fuels: Highlights Epoxy resin is widely used for manufacturing composite pressure vessels for alternative fuels, due to its various benefits. Epoxy Resin provides extremely high strength to the hollow cylindrical pressure vessels. Due to its flexibility, the epoxy resin also provides pressure vessels the capability to absorb the strain produced due to the pressurization of vessel walls in all directions. It holds the structural fiber in its position and is compatible with other common reinforcing fibers including glass fiber and aramid fiber as well. It also contributes to the durability and chemical resistance of the pressure vessels. It exhibits excellent properties at a reasonably low cost. Composite pressure vessels are fabricated through the filament winding process (both dry and wet) which offers a high degree of fiber orientation with high fiber loading. The process provides a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent uniformity. Carbon fiber combined with epoxy resin matrix offers high strength and weight advantages and is one of the preferred materials of choice for developing pressure vessels. Impact of COVID-19 on Epoxy Resin Market in Pressure Vessels for Alternative Fuels The global epoxy resin market in pressure vessels for alternative fuels grew continuously from 2015 to 2019 and was estimated to maintain its upward growth trajectory in 2020 as well. However, the rapid spread of the pandemic has drastically changed the entire market dynamics. The pandemic worsened the existing challenges of the automotive industry, weakened the industry sales to its lowest figure of the decade, which, in turn, affected the demand for epoxy resins in pressure vessels for alternative fuels. Analogous to the projected recoveries in the industrial estimates for the automotive industry, the study of market recoveries in previous downturns (The Great Recession) and primary interviews across the supply chain, the publisher's estimates suggest that the market for epoxy resin in pressure vessels for alternative fuels is likely to commence rebounding from 2021 onwards, followed by maintaining sequential growth till 2026, ultimately reaching to the value of US$ 31.8 million by 2026. Continuous rise in the demand for lightweight components in the automotive industry to achieve the fuel efficiency targets and growing focus of automakers towards alternative fuel options to reduce the carbon footprints are the factors suggesting healthy long-term growth opportunities in the epoxy resin market in pressure vessels for alternative fuels once the aftermath of the pandemic ends. Market Share Analysis Based on the vessel type, type IV tank is likely to witness the fastest recovery in the market over the next five years, after the least hit in 2020 by the pandemic and so is the demand for epoxy resins in this vessel type. Type IV tank incorporates a greater amount of carbon epoxy composites and offers maximum weight saving as compared to other pressure vessel types. There is increasing penetration of type IV tanks, particularly in mass transit buses and medium & heavy-duty vehicles. For medium & heavy-duty commercial vehicles, higher fuel density and lower mass of these vessels permit greater range and fuel efficiency, increased the operational interval between refueling stops, and reduced maintenance cost. Based on application type, CNG vehicle alone accounted for more than 80% of the epoxy resin market in the pressure vessels for alternative fuels in 2019 and is expected to remain the largest application type over the next five years as well. Hydrogen vehicle currently generates a low demand for pressure vessels including epoxy resins, but it is plausible that there would be a spike in the production of hydrogen vehicles in the coming years as more than ten automakers have already released FCV demonstrators and test fleets. In short, CNG vehicle is projected to be the most affected segment by the pandemic coupled with an expected rise in the production of hydrogen vehicles. Based on the vehicle type, the epoxy resin market in pressure vessels for alternative fuels is segmented as light vehicles, M&HCV, and others. A light vehicle is likely to remain the most dominant user of the market in the coming years. All the vehicle type segments are expected to log a massive decline at the rate (20%+ YoY in 2020) in the wake of the pandemic. After a severe hit by the pandemic, the light vehicle segment is expected to rebound at the fastest pace in the coming years. Natural gas vehicles are considered to be less pollutant than gasoline or diesel-based vehicles so there has been an increasing trend towards the usage of light vehicles powered with alternative fuels, such as CNG to curb carbon emissions. Despite being one of the worst-affected regions in 2020, Europe is projected to maintain its supremacy in the market over the next five years, driven by increased demand for alternative fuel vehicles incorporating composite pressure vessels. Major European automakers are launching new auto models with powertrains dependent on CNG to leverage the abundant shale gas resources. A majority of them are utilizing lightweight tanks to reduce vehicle's weight to achieve European carbon emission standards. Key Players The global epoxy resin market in pressure vessels is highly consolidated with the presence of a few major global players including Aditya Birla Chemicals Ltd., Hexion Inc, Huntsman Corporation, Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, Olin Corporation, and The 3M Company. All the major players of the market are well diversified and serving epoxy resin for various applications. New product development and collaboration with pressure vessel manufacturers are some of the key strategies adopted by epoxy resin manufacturers to gain a competitive edge in the market.
