Our meeting with the Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners is a chance for the Committee to discuss the structure, timing and operation of the scheme. The purpose of the meeting is to deal with any ambiguity and concerns in regards to the payment of the local property tax and, in some circumstances, to establish how the issue of how premature payments is dealt with and how payments will be made when they are actually due“We will also raise the issue of Revenue’s customer service on the issue – particularly how concerns are not related to the issue of compliancy, but an issue of good customer service, in which people who wish to pay the tax are finding that they are making the payment before its due date.” First Irish death from Coronavirus last_img read more

BOEM sees limited potential for tidal, wave, offshore solar in GOM

first_imgOnce offshore wind was identified as the leading technology for Gulf of Mexico application, BOEM and NREL further analyzed of the economic feasibility of offshore wind for selected sites in the Gulf of Mexico. The analysis found that offshore solar photovoltaics had the greatest gross potential resource. Offshore Renewable Energy Technologies in the Gulf of Mexico study analyzed different technologies best suited for development in the GOM. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has released two new studies on renewable energy in the Gulf of Mexico. Offshore Wind The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) researchers helped undertake these studies, funded by BOEM’s Environmental Studies Program. However, specific sites in Florida and Texas identified in this study have potential for small distributed systems. Other renewable energy technologies surveyed in this study may present opportunities for energy generation on a limited basis. Tidal energy has very little resource in the GOM, according to BOEM.center_img The renewable energy resources evaluated included wind, wave, tidal, current, solar, deepwater source cooling, and hydrogen. Furthermore, it was noted that there are many sheltered sites in state waters that may be suitable for offshore solar; not evaluated in this study. Of all the technologies, BOEM said offshore wind had the largest quantity of technical resource potential with 508 gigawatt (GW) covering all GOM states, although Texas and Louisiana show the highest overall technical offshore wind resource potential. However, longer term technological and economic improvements are possible. Wave energy, OTEC, and ocean current all have major challenges that may preclude their implementation in the GOM. There are also limited cold water source cooling options in the GOM because the best resource is far from shore. However, without a demonstrable method of surviving extreme waves on the open ocean, none of that resource counts toward the technical resource potential. last_img read more
