first_img DVR This B’way-Bound Duo March 11, check local listings Don’t you love your DVR? Us too. Especially when Toni Braxton and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, the latest guest stars of After Midnight (who will debut March 18), visit Ellen. They’re slated to perform a song from their new album, Love, Marriage, & Divorce, and maybe they’ll even sing something from the show. Or, who knows, maybe they’ll belt a few tunes accompanied by a ska metal band. Daytime TV is an unpredictable beast, after all. Cheer For the Italian Stallion March 13 at The Winter Garden Theatre  The musical adaptation of the Oscar-winning boxing drama Rocky officially bows, starring Andy Karl as the Italian Stallion and Broadway newcomer Margo Seibert as his timid, beret-wearing gal, Adrian. It’s got all the grit and heart of the original film, plus some gorgeous songs and an in-your-face boxing ring that you have to see to believe. Also, ice skating, turtles, and lots of meat. Click for tickets! Make an Effort for Second Stage March 10 at Second Stage Theatre Hey, it’s a benefit! Wait, where are you going?! Unlike most benefits, which involve somber speeches, stuffy attire and snobby dowagers, this one for Second Stage’s 35th anniversary looks like a blast. Comedian Annabelle Gurwitch takes the stage in an adaption of her new book, I See You Made an Effort, a humorous look at turning 50. Even better, she’s brought Alice Ripley, Gina Gershon, Judy Gold and other talented ladies to juice things up. Click for tickets! Clink Glasses with Klendez March 10 at 54 Below Lindsay Mendez and Derek Klena (Wicked, Dogfight) are pairing up again, this time to “celebrate the music they love and their friendship.” That is too adorable, right? Oh, Klendez! The evening is directed Dogfight scribe Peter Duchan and features musical direction by Dogfight and Wicked alum Bryan Perri (Unfortunately, those guys don’t have a cool, blended nickname). Click for tickets! Have a Spanking Good Laugh March 12 at the Elektra Theatre So, you read Fifty Shades of Grey, (on your Kindle so no one the bus would know) and joined the scads of readers—including your grandma—who are gaga for it. The movie isn’t coming out for another year, and who knows when the theme park will open. What to do? Check out the official debut of the riotous parody 50 Shades! The Musical, featuring whips, chains and laughs. Don’t forget to bring Nana. Click for tickets! Hey, remember back in January when you made that New Year’s resolution to go out and do more stuff? It’s horribly cold outside for what seems like the millionth day in a row, but don’t settle for a bad TV movie when there’s so much to see and do in New York City. This week, Rocky enters the Broadway ring, Klendez reunites underground, and a sexy musical parody of a popular book opens off-Broadway (no, not the Bible). Here’s our must-see list!

first_imgFrench firm completes world’s largest floating solar project in China FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:French-based Ciel & Terre International has announced that its 70 MW floating solar power plant located on top of an old coal mining area in the province of Anhui, China, is now officially complete after several months of tests and monitoring.Ciel & Terre has been developing floating solar PV projects since 2011 and has developed over 120 floating solar PV farms around the world – including in Cambodia, Taiwan, and South Africa.At the end of 2018 construction was completed on a 70MW (peak) floating solar plant in the Chinese province of Anhui, in the country’s east, the largest floating solar plant in the world.The project was constructed by China Energy Conservation Solar Technology and engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) was completed by China Energy Engineering Group Shanxi Electric Power Design Institute.Built atop a former coal-mining area in the Yongqiao district, Suzhou city, the new project will primarily be used to improve the energy structure in the province and the quality of the environment on-site.The idea of floating solar projects continues to gain traction as the economics of solar power generation becomes more attractive and available land becomes harder to come by. Utilising bodies of water for solar generation solves several issues while still generating clean electricity. Further, company’s like Ciel & Terre also focus their efforts on installing floating solar systems on brown fields or remediation ponds in an effort to transform polluted land and water into clean energy generating sites.More: China completes new 70MW floating solar PV project on old coal arealast_img read more
