Soar in Rents Stirs Trinity Anger

first_imgTrinity students have been shocked by a massive rent hike proposed by the College. Undergraduates have responded by unanimously rejecting the inflation-busting increases to their food and accommodation costs. The suggested increases would raise battels by £4 000 for a three year degree, increasing board and lodging costs by 57%. In a letter to undergraduates the head of the College, The Hon Michael Beloff QC, cites “the war in Iraq, concerns about terrorism and now SARS” as contributory reasons for the increases. In an interview with The Times newspaper on Monday, JCR President Sarojini McKenna criticized the College’s proposals and said, “these plans would change Trinity entirely for future generations.” Negotiations over battels were due to start this week. However Mr Beloff, pre-empting the discussions in a letter sent to undergraduates last Friday, stated that the College intends to phase in increases in real accommodation charges of 20%, catering charges of 40% together with 60% in the establishment charge, all above Oxford inflation. JCR Secretary Christopher Byrne said, “From the other JCRs that we have spoken to, we have by far the highest proposed increases.” In a press release sent out by the Student Union on Monday in response to the Times article, Vice President (Welfare) Andrew Copson comments, “if the domestic costs are raised in this way, students on a maximum loan will have only £2 per week to spend on essentials such as books and food.” Trinity students are incensed by the College’s plans. Sarojini McKenna told Cherwell, “we had not expected such drastic rises. Undergraduates are not a resource to exploit. To use student rents as a cushion against recessions and geopolitical crises is an irresponsible policy of College.” Mr Beloff ’s letter attracted criticism among JCR members. He defended his strategy, arguing that the College needs to increase charges to deflect criticism of elitism. Mr Beloff said, “A perception that Oxford students benefit so significantly from subsidised accommodation and food may no longer be acceptable to the wider community.” McKenna responded to this by saying, “The stigma that Oxford is the playground of the rich could within a few years become the reality. The increases could yield college £150 000, while they intend to raise hardship funds by just £10 000. Underprivileged students will be put off applying to Trinity.” The Trinity rent proposals have raised fears that other colleges may follow suit by demanding large rent increases. Mr Beloff warns, “other colleges in similar positions have reached the same conclusion” that Oxford colleges are “no longer in a position to continue subsidising student accommodation and catering costs at current levels”. Many JCR members however are worried about the wider Access implications. Byrne said to Cherwell, “College’s public Access committments in the national press will be made redundant if this massive deterrent to applications goes through.”ARCHIVE: 2nd Week TT 2003last_img read more

Broad Reach Power begins construction on 200MW of battery storage in Texas

first_imgBroad Reach Power begins construction on 200MW of battery storage in Texas FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:It took a while, but the Texas grid battery market is officially heating up.Developer-owner-operator Broad Reach Power confirmed Tuesday that it has commenced construction on a pair of 100-megawatt batteries, each of which is bigger than any battery plants currently operating in Texas’ ERCOT power market. They are slated to come online next year in Mason and Williamson counties, alongside 15 smaller systems rated at 10 megawatts/10 megawatt-hours each.Houston-based Broad Reach is not alone in investing big in Texas energy storage: Developer Key Capture Energy completed three systems in the state between January and April, totaling 30 megawatts. Key Capture recently announced it will finish a 100 MW battery and two 50 MW plants in the first half of 2021. The ERCOT interconnection queue shows similarly ambitious plans from solar developers and many other energy companies.Storage developers had largely steered clear of the rough-and-tumble ERCOT market in recent years, building big in California and other places that offer long-term offtake agreements with utilities. But Texas offers benefits that the wind industry has long appreciated: relatively easy land acquisition and permitting, and a competitive market that batteries can enter without waiting for major policy changes.Broad Reach Power’s business model is indicative of what’s possible in ERCOT. The group formed barely over a year ago with backing from energy investors Yorktown Partners, EnCap Investments and Mercuria Energy. With renewable penetration increasing across the country but especially in Texas — the state has more than 30 GW of wind capacity and a rapidly growing base of solar plants — BRP wanted to tackle the challenge of matching supply to real-time demand. The firm’s backing allows it to finance projects from its own balance sheet, allowing more room to maneuver in a new market with new business models. It got to work applying them to both the high-voltage transmission interconnection queue and the distribution-level queue, which caps batteries at 10 MW.The broader story is that multiple experienced energy investors are converging on Texas simultaneously. The interconnection queue contains more than two dozen batteries that are each larger than 100 megawatts; some go up to 300, 400, even 500 megawatts.[Julian Spector]More: The race is on to build the biggest batteries in Texaslast_img read more
