Description Global construction equipment sales hit an all-time high of 1.1 million units in 2018, according to new analysis by Off-Highway Research (OHR), a leading industry market research consultancy. OHR says the 2018 sales – with a retail value of around US$110 billion - eclipsed the most recent highs of 2011, the peak of the Chinese stimulus spending boom, and 2007. Continuing the trend seen in 2017, OHR notes a widespread improvement in equipment sales around the world last year, with increases in North America, Europe and emerging Asia, including both China and India. In China sales of construction equipment including mobile cranes grew 37% in 2018. This, OHR states, followed on from the 81% surge seen in 2017, and took the market to 343,817 units. This was the highest Chinese equipment demand has been since 2012, and established the country once again as the largest market in the world. India also had a big year. Sales of construction equipment including mobile cranes grew 35%, the third successive year of robust growth. This took the market to a record high of 98,204 units – some 44% above the previous high seen in 2011, and more than double the demand seen just three years previously during the cyclical low point of 2014 and 2015. Meanwhile, OHR highlights how sales in Western Europe hit their highest for a decade in 2018, with a 10% to 177,694 units. Demand increased in 14 out of the region’s 15 largest markets, with sales in Germany and the UK in particular reaching impressive levels. OHR states that the only time the German market has been as strong was at the height of the post-reunification building boom in the early 1990s. North American equipment sales also improved last year, with growth of 13% taking demand to some 195,500 units. The only disappointment among the world’s largest markets last year was Japan, where sales fell 5% to 63,700 machines. While 2018 is likely to represent the peak in the current cycle, OHR forecasts only a moderate decline in global demand this year. Sales are expected to remain above 1 million units, which would be only the fourth year in history this has been achieved. The outlook for the following years is for demand to stay at good levels. However, OHR cautions that this bright outlook could be threatened by negative and unexpected political and economic events.

Description The global market stagnated last year, with around 98 GW deployed. By 2019, experts expect global photovoltaic growth, provided there are no setbacks in China. Once again, in 2018, the 100 GW brand for the new photovoltaic capacity could not be reached, according to the market research company PV Market Alliance. Analysts say that 98 GW of photovoltaic capacity was installed last year, one gigawatt less than in 2017. At around 44 GW, China accounted for almost half of global capacity additions, a figure that fell by 17% with respect to to the 2017 record of 53 GW, while the US markets. U.S., Japan and India also stagnated reaching a total of 26 GW. In Europe, 8.5 GW were installed, thanks in particular to the boost of markets such as Germany and the Netherlands. In addition, PV Market Alliance foresees a sustained growth for this market also in 2019. Nations such as Australia, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Mexico and Brazil, which together accounted for 19.5 GW of new projects last year, have become significantly more important. By the end of 2018, the world had installed an accumulated photovoltaic capacity of almost 500 GW. PV Market Alliance warned that its forecast for 2019 depends on political decisions in key markets, especially in China. In a largely stable Chinese market, global solar installations would grow approximately 20% to 120 GW, according to analysts, with the Middle East, Latin America and Europe offering significant growth potential. At Intersolar Europe 2018, the PV Market Alliance forecast a world market volume of 180-200 GW by 2022. The company also pointed out that the figures provided relate only to photovoltaic energy connected to the grid.

Description The multibillion-dollar sector will boom despite sustainability negligence by developers Heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems are responsible for controlling the ambient environment. HVAC insulation is necessary for ducts and pipes to transfer energy with negligible amount of losses, and along the way, it also improves the energy efficiency, fire safety, and acoustic performance of a building. The global HVAC insulation market is driven by the growth in the global construction industry and increasing demand for energy-efficient systems. However, the sector is also likely to face hindrances due to negligence and reluctance on the part of infrastructure developers to make buildings greener. READ: HVAC chiller market to maintain steady growth According to Market Research Future, the governments of developed and developing nations across all the world are seen to be promoting and developing their respective construction sectors. Major emerging nations in the Asia Pacific region are introducing numerous reforms and regulations to boost their infrastructure and real estate markets. Such growth is anticipated to augment HVAC insulation’s market prospects. The Government of India recently announced some major policy initiatives, such as the approval of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016, which mandates the real estate developer to provide greater transparency in project marketing and implementation, with the utilisation of quality construction materials.

Description Hanwha Q Cells is continuing its collaboration with CGN Power Group. The manufacturer is delivering its Q.Peak-G5 mono-crystalline PERC solar modules to a 150 MW site in China’s Hubei province. NOVEMBER 16, 2018 MARIAN WILLUHN Korean module manufacturer Hanwha Q Cells has announced a 100 MW supply deal for a 150 MW solar plant in China’s Hubei Province. The deal was inked with snappily named EPC contractor Central Southern China Electric Power Design Institute Co., Ltd. of China Power Engineering Consulting Group Corporation – which is building the plant for CGN New Energy. The project is at Dafan town, in Tongshan county, Hubei province, a region with high solar irradiation which hosts renewable energy and battery storage projects. Hanwha says the supply of modules has already begun, with the first batch of 30 MW arriving on site on November 2. The plant is expected to be ready for grid connection as early as the end of the year. Hanwha says a previous 66 MW supply deal for a Top Runner project in July means it will have delivered 400 MW of modules to CGN Power Group. In its second quarter update, the cell producer noted a 10.3% decline in revenues compared to the same period last year, from $578 million to $518 million. Hanwha cited a “difficult quarter”, due to falling sales in some key markets following policy changes – most probably a reference to China. However, the company said it was optimistic of better times ahead and felt the solar market would continue to grow “in the long term”. IHS Markit has revised up its estimate for the Chinese market by several gigawatts to an encouraging 40 GW by the end of the year, which would mean a cumulative capacity of 165 GW. China is reportedly considering revising its 2020 solar development target up from 105 GW – which it has long since surpassed – to 210-270 GW. In this vein, market research group, Fitch Solution Macro Research, forecasts the global solar market will experience 138% growth over the next decade. Cumulative global installation reportedly reached 395 GW last year, and is expected to climb to 942 GW by 2027.

Description The philosophy of the law of public contracts Dr. Adel Amer that the law No. 182 of 2018, on the organization of contracts concluded by public bodies, regulates the law, the contracts concluded by the public bodies, and aims to address the result of the practical application of the law of organizing tenders and auctions issued Law No. 89 of 1998 Challenges and willingness to face up to the latest economic and social developments, and to keep abreast of the global development in the field of government contracts. To establish a new philosophy and concepts that the purchase, sale and contracting of government is not only related to the method of placement and contracting, but involves pre-placement procedures and after the stage of submission from the management of contracts and receipt and completion of implementation. Aims to achieve the best value for public money in contracts concluded by the parties subject to its provisions and the establishment of new rules in contracts based primarily on good government and sustainable development goals and the establishment of greater transparency and competition and equal opportunities and improve the environment and business climate and adopt the new trends and good practices common in the areas of government contracts . There are four main axes to be used to strengthen and improve public contracting systems: the legal framework, good governance standards, market competitiveness measurement standards and prevailing practices, control and anticorruption standards. The purpose of the law is to tighten the supervision and achieve economic efficiency of the states access to real value in exchange for what is spent from public money and avoid unjustified disbursement and to achieve a positive return on the performance of the parties subject to the provisions of the law and control and rationalization of public spending and fight corruption, Which will reduce the burden on the state budget, simplify procedures, facilitate executive work and achieve the objectives of decentralization, as well as establish the principles of transparency and equal opportunities and expand and strengthen the base of competition. The first article of the articles of issuing that law stipulates that its provisions shall apply to the entities included in the general budget of the State, the units of the administrative apparatus of the State, including the units that have a special budget, the units of the local administration and the service and economic bodies. , With the exception of the social welfare funds established therein, which are financed mainly by the financial contributions of its members and the projects financed by the special accounts, without prejudice to the provisions of the international conventions, Rh created or organized or issued regulations based on those laws and decisions. The Act also repeals Act No. 89 of 1998 on the organization of tenders and auctions, which the Government has been operating for 19 years. That this new law was prepared to keep pace with economic and social changes to meet the needs of the current and future government. The law introduced mechanisms to enable the entities subject to its provisions to lease movables instead of buying them according to economic feasibility and to rationalize government expenditure and reduce pressure on the state budget. It also introduced new procurement methods that offer non-traditional solutions to the needs of the parties and generalize the idea of ??central procurement as well as setting up controls for the direct agreement to tighten the control and establish the principles of transparency while expanding the decision-making and government standards by replacing the authority of the Prime Minister with the Council of Ministers. In order to promote the principles of governance and transparency, controls were put in place for contracting in a manner that would directly agree to the provisions of supervision, establish the principles of transparency and governance and expand decision-making. Develop the system of government procurement and establish the system of framework agreements and develop the management of government stock, especially that the door to purchase goods and services for the operation of the administrative system of the state and improve public services, which accounts for a large proportion of the allocations of the state budget. Including for the first time allow the implementation of the electronic procurement system in stages and decide on tenders that do not exceed the value of 300 thousand pounds through only one committee, in addition to the development of a new organization to deal with cases of subcontracting in government contracts in order to raise the quality of contracted work and limit From the phenomenon of the informal economy, As well as the lack of progress in local tenders of less than two million pounds on small projects, giving them a real opportunity to win government contracts, giving them incentives in terms of payment of insurance and pursuant to the provisions of Law No. 5 of 2015 in favor of Egyptian products in government contracts. Not less than 20% of its needs for owners of small or micro enterprises. The law also regulates contracting procedures and derivative contracts. The law regulates contracting procedures for transactions that require the contracting authority to speed up the decision by nature or fluctuations in their prices and economic quantities or covering a future time horizon. The law also regulates transactions in international financial markets, derivative contracts, futures and futures purchases and related ones, which the previous law did not deal with, in order to keep pace with the relevant economic trends and global standards. The law stipulates that the transition to the electronic system is carried out in accordance with its procedures, with the aim of building a real database that will automatically occur for contracts, thus reducing the time spent on completing the procedures, providing more transparency in dealing and preventing corrupt practices. And that the features of the law include the encouragement of national industry. He stressed the commitment of the authorities to implement Law No. 5 of 2015 regarding the preference of the local product in government contracts and its amendments, in light of the states keenness to support and encourage national industry as the most important economic development axis. Among the features of the law are the simplification of the procedures. The tender procedures, which do not exceed 300 thousand pounds, have been simplified to be decided through a single committee. The financial limits stipulated by the law have been reviewed in line with the current values ??of money. Make decision,. The primary insurance rate in the law has been reduced to 1.5% of the estimated value of the operation in order to encourage the business community to deal with the parties in the operations. The law raises the period of payment of the final insurance and the organization of the mechanisms of the refund of insurance immediately after the end of the guarantee period in order to facilitate procedures and reduce the administrative cost to the business community in order to achieve the objectives of competition and the interests of public bodies at the same time. That the law is also aimed at rationalizing government spending, where procedures have been developed to assess the annual needs and link them to the preparation of the budget, and procedures for market research and the development of the estimated value on a sound basis. The standards for adjusting the prices of contracts for business contracting were also standardized through the Ministry of Housing setting up a list of changing items for the different types of projects, as well as organizing procedures for adjusting the volume and quantity of contracts. The law also aims at raising the efficiency of contract workers in the administrative bodies. The contract workers are required to pass the regular training programs as a condition for their continued practice in this field. This is aimed at improving their performance, improving their skills and developing their skills. And the activation of the Code of Functional Conduct, where the law required the preparation of a code of conduct for employees of government contracts issued by the Minister of Finance and to be committed, in order to raise the level of performance of workers in this area through the development of performance standards and professional and ethical determinants are maintained and maintained. And that there are many initiatives, procedures and training courses will be prepared by the Ministry and the Authority and will be in line with the issuance of the executive regulation aims to facilitate the application of this law by employees in the administrative bodies, as well as dealers from the business community of suppliers and contractors, service providers and consultants. These initiatives and courses aim to explain the objectives and content of the law, as well as to enlighten the business community of the new procedures that will enable the establishment of greater transparency, competition and governance. In addition to finalizing the executive regulations before the end of March, the government also pledged to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to establish a clear and robust framework for resolving complaints and to apply procurement regulations in a coherent and uniform manner to all government agencies, including central, local and economic authorities. Government procurement measures pledged by the Government to the Fund also included the prime ministers approval of a reform plan to ensure that state procurement rules are consistent with the new government procurement law by June 15, 2019. These include the establishment of a government procurement portal before the end May 2019 to promote competition, improve public spending and reduce corruption.

Description Boticas: Mining firms are racing to open new lithium mines in Portugal, already Europes biggest producer of the commodity, thanks to the surge in popularity of electric vehicles powered by lithium-ion batteries. "The more we drill, the more we find," says David Archer as he stands at the foot of a drilling crane perforating the granite rock of mountains near Boticas in northern Portugal to measure its lithium content. The metal has become a form of precious "white gold" since demand for electric batteries has taken off. Archers British mining firm, Savannah Resources, expects to open "Europes most important lithium mine" in 2020 here in the remote highlands of Tras-os-Montes, Portugals poorest and least-known region. The company announced Monday that lithium resources at its Mina do Barroso project there were 44 per cent higher than previously estimated. Just 25 kilometres (15 miles) away in the town of Montalegre, Portuguese firm Lusorecursos also claims to sit on Europes "most important lithium deposit" which it expects to begin mining in 2020, according to its financial director Ricardo Pinheiro. "The battery sector exploded and created a real appetite for lithium," says Lucas Bednarski, managing director of market research site Lithium Today. - New generation of batteries - Demand for lithium, a silver-white coloured metal that is already used to manufacture lithium-ion batteries used in phones and laptops, has taken off with the rising popularity of electric vehicles, which need powerful batteries. "I honestly believe that lithium could be the new gold for Portugal," said European Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic, who is responsible for energy policy in the European Unions executive arm. "The reason for that is we expect that by 2025 there will be a market in Europe for batteries worth 250 billion euros ($290 billion) annually." For almost a year now Sefcovic has been working on a project to build in the EU a new generation of "green" recyclable and reusable batteries. The first step requires reducing the blocs dependence on imported battery components. The EU imports 86 per cent of the lithium it consumes, mainly from Chile and Australia. Portugal is already Europes main lithium producer, with a market share of 11 per cent, but its output is entirely used to make ceramics and glassware. "Its known Portugal has the most important reserves in Europe," says Bednarski of Lithium Today, adding that the crucial step will be figuring out whether mining is "economically viable in a very competitive global market". He estimates it is 2.5 times more expensive to produce lithium extracted from Portugals granite rocks than from the brine fields of Chile. - White gold rush - "There is a white gold rush in various jurisdictions in the world. For continental Europe, home of the German and French car industries, the concept of having a European supply chain from mineral to electric vehicle is attractive," says Howard Klein, investment adviser at New York-based RK Equity. The rush is already under way in Portugal. The projects at Boticas and Montalegre are expected to get the green light from investors and the authorities in the coming months. The government will launch calls for tenders for lithium prospecting rights at a dozen other sites to respond to "big investor appetite", Portugals Secretary of State for Energy Jorge Seguro Sanches told AFP. Since 2016 Portugal has received over 40 requests for permission to look for lithium, he adds. But the government does not just want to collect royalties for lithium extraction. It also wants to "seize the opportunity to develop industrial sectors linked to the transformation of the mineral, to battery production, to the auto sector and renewable energy," Sanches said. Savannah Resources wants to produce a mineral concentrate rich in lithium in Portugal for export. Lusorecursos project at Montalegre is even more ambitious as it wants to build a factory that can transform lithium before selling it to battery makers.
