What is Behind the Green Energy Boom in Vietnam?”

— Karol Donimirsky

WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The total capacity of the non-hydroelectric clean energy (like wind, solar, and biomass gasification) in Vietnam peaked at 109 megawatts (MW) in the year 2014, one-third of the 1% of the total installed capacity of about 34,079 MW in the world. Hydropower (46%), coal (29%) as well as natural gas controlled Vietnam’s energy mix at the moment (22%). At the end of the year 2019, 5,700 MW of installed power was accounted for by solar and wind, around 10 percent of the overall supply. That implies that Vietnam sees wind and solar power go from virtually zero to 10% of its supply in just five years. What’s behind this boom in green energy?

Vietnam’s exponential pace of growth is the main catalyst. Since 2014, Vietnam’s economy has expanded by 6% or more a year, hitting 7% in 2018 and 2019, as per the Asian Development Bank. This exponential growth drives the use of resources at an extraordinary pace. Vietnam Electricity (EVN), the electric utility which is owned by the state, has seen the quantity of energy sold rise from around 128.6 terawatt-hours (TWh) in the year 2014 to around 209.4 TWh in 2019. Electricity consumption has risen or more 11% each year, increasing at a rate far higher than the GDP. This is driving a virtually insatiable desire for further production and investment in energy.

TORONTO, NEW ZELAND, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Harrison Street secured five commercial and industrial solar assets from an international developer of renewable energy called Ecoplexus. This energy deal will generate 101.9 megawatts of solar energy from the company’s Distributed Generation assets in California and the Community Solar Garden located in Minnesota. The assets will be supplying 142 million kilowatt-hours of solar energy to meet the demands of schools, universities, hospitals, municipalities, and California residents in a long-term contract. The chief of the utilities under Harrison Street, Carolyn Arida, explained that Ecoplexus is a world-renowned developer and renewable energy supplier and they are happy to work with their assets. This contract will provide sufficient solar energy to run about 12900 households and the public institutions like hospitals, schools, and government amenities.

Arida pointed out that Harrison Street partners with companies offering crucial services to the US citizens and are ready to work with Ecoplexus to reduce emissions in California that result from utilizing conventional energy sources like coal-fired power plants. Harrison Street hopes that these projects can steer California and Minnesota markets to take up renewable energy and abandon greenhouse gas emissions generators. The chief executive of Ecoplexus, John Gorman, expressed their joy in dealing with Harrison Streets for renewable energy. The executive termed Harrison Street a leading investor in renewable energy and the proponent of developing renewable energy infrastructure. The deal has proceeded smoothly, and the two stakeholders in the transition to clean energy are looking forward to more ventures that will establish this relationship.

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOT/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOTS/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.

FOR IMPACT OF CDC COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS:

– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.

PRIVATE JET SOLUTIONS

In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.

The rise of blockchain promises to revolutionize many sectors, including cross-border trade logistics and global supply chains! Our Thoughts at WTIA…

We envision a Blockchain-enabled Logistics Ecosystem to solve the present industry pain-points where the Marketplace is a unified platform to allow better accountability between users & stakeholders.”

— Chairman Keun-Young Kim

NAMDAEMUN, SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, January 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We envision a Blockchain-enabled Logistics Ecosystem to solve the present industry pain-points where the Marketplace is a unified platform to allow better accountability between users and stakeholders. Built purely on Blockchain, our Ecosystem marries the best of Marketplace with Blockchain Technology said Chairman Kim, WTIA

Blockchain technology is quickly transforming the way we store and manage data. Instead of a centralized database, blockchain relies on a network of data blocks that are protected and linked together using cryptography. The rise of blockchain promises to revolutionize many sectors, including cross-border trade logistics and global supply chains: blockchain can help track international shipments more effectively, reduce administrative tasks by automating the documentation process, and protect transactions across the entire logistics chain.

The World Bank Hub for Infrastructure and Urban Development in Singapore hosted an event dedicated specifically to the practical applications of blockchain for trade and logistics. Some takeaways and more are shared below.

A unanimous flow was present echoing that Blockchain has the potential to make trade and logistics more efficient by increasing transparency and security, which are the main issues.

Currently, shipping goods from a manufacturer to a consumer involves many different stakeholders: exporters, terminal operators, port authorities, freight forwarders, customs, etc. Most of the paperwork involved still needs to be handed down from one party to the next in person. This results in situations where goods may have arrived at the port, but the relevant paper trail has not caught up. End users often have no clear visibility as to where their goods are and when they will arrive. This inefficiency generates extra costs.

Blockchain can certainly alleviate these concerns by:
$ Minimizing or eliminating the need to repeat similar information across multiple documents;
$ Recording the digital signature of each party to increase security;
$ Tracing and correcting errors at each stage of the process
$ Allowing all parties in the supply chain to access information on one common platform

Blockchain reduces the monopoly enjoyed by certain intermediaries over critical information. Any one party in the global supply chain can access real-time information on where a consignment is, trace possible mistakes made in documentation, or establish the identity of his/her partners. This could go a long way in unlocking opportunities for small and medium enterprises in the supply chain.

In a blockchain formation, no individual can change the algorithm that is built into the system without the prior approval of others. This increases confidence in the system and ensures a level playing field for even the smallest players.

Blockchain will only gain traction in the global trade and logistics sector if a critical mass of stakeholders embrace this technology – This is KEY!!!

To ensure widespread adoption, it is necessary to educate both small and large industry players about the benefits and relatively low uptake cost of blockchain as there are pay-as-you-use services. Governments can lead by example. In that spirit, Dubai has mandated that all government agencies use blockchain technology for visa applications, bill payments, and license renewals, which will eliminate more than 1 billion paper documents used for government transactions annually.

Likewise, it is the responsibility of governments to update legislation and regulations in order to help guarantee the security of blockchain and build trust in the system. To that end, the Singapore Government has already started reviewing its Electronic Transactions Act (ETA) to facilitate the processing of logistics-related documents using blockchain.

The WTIA Blockchain Protocol
The platform adopts an API first methodology, meaning all capabilities and operations are available as APIs. This fully embraces a multi device, multi system world we are living in today. Any user can connect to the platform using their mobile devices, as well various desktop browsers. Developers can also extend the native offerings by building additional specialized devices, such as voting machines in fan events, or payment modules at retail. This API first methodology extends the platform to limitless possibilities.

The ecosystem is entirely token driven, meaning all the economies will be based on tokens rather than fiat, this provides extremely fast transactional settlement capabilities, and eliminating expensive external transactional costs.

The token, having a 20,000 per second concurrent processing speed allows the token to be utilized as a real time environment, enabling massive television, online media campaigns, where traditional systems and blockchain systems tends to not being able to meet this demand. The token is protected by a double SHA256 encryption, making it impossible to reverse engineer.

Encryption Software

CYPHERTOP| BEST PROVEN QUANTUM ENCRYPTION SOFTWARE 2021”

— Ramon Mora

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What is actually encrypting software?

In today's digital and fast-paced world, encryption software is must-have if you are dealing with storing data that needs to be far away from prying eyes. But what exactly is encryption software?

It's a powerful tool, that is, a security program in charge of protecting your data. To put it simply, it is a method by which your information is converted into secret code. These secret codes are hiding the true meaning of information, and they are almost impossible to crack.
The science of encrypting/decrypting information is called cryptography.

Why you should use encryption software?
People's confidence on the Internet is on the decline. The reasons for this are quite obvious. But let's make one thing crystal clear. Your privacy and all personal data are 24/7 at risk of falling into the wrong hands. This is particularly concerning when it comes to financial information or other private file exchanging.

Encryption of data files
Encryption is the best possible way to keep all sending or receiving data over the internet safe, away from the eyes of other people, confidential. That can include credit card details, private chats with your friends or colleagues, passwords, or simple pictures you want to share with relatives and friends.

So once again, bear in mind that keeping these files out of other people's hands demands encryption software.
Encryption software converts, or let's better say transform your information into a massive confusing series of something that looks like a mess. Every single letter and number of your data is converted through an algorithm before getting in the hands of the recipient.

This brings us closer to the clear answer to the question of what is encryption software.
Encryption software importance
Encryption plays a great role in protecting a wide range of information technology assets. Encryption provides the following:
• Confidentiality encodes the content of your messages
• Authentication verifies the message origin
• Integrity ensures that message content has not been changed
• Nonrepudiation prevent message sender from denying they sent it

The way encryption software works
Now that we understand the basic concept of software encryption, let's take a closer insight into how it works. First things first, you do not need separate software for decrypting previously encrypted files because one single program can do both functions.

The very beginning of a message traveling through encryption software begins with a key. This is not a real physical key. It is a long string of zeroes and ones. Software algorithm generates a customized unique key based on which your information is scrambled.

These algorithm keys can be used for both decryption and encryption. But over the years, they are separated to increase security. As you can guess, the more complex the key is, the harder it is for intruders to crack it.

The takeaway
Data transfer, email encryption, and messenger encryption software are evolving daily. Engineers are constantly working hard on faster encryption methods.
All in all, encryption gain huge momentum, especially last years, as hackers are constantly finding ways to steal data.

Demand recovery hinges on vaccines: Petraco Oil Company cautiously optimistic

Demand recovery hinges on vaccines: Petraco Oil Company cautiously optimistic

Demand recovery hinges on vaccines: Petraco Oil Company cautiously optimistic

Petraco is one of the oldest independent trading companies in Europe, priding itself on great expertise and strong connection with its customers.

LUGANO, TESSIN, SWITZERLAND, January 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Demand recovery hinges on vaccines: Petraco Oil Company cautiously optimistic – With lockdowns continuing worldwide, the energy industry has been monitoring the availability of vaccines closely. At the January 2021 Gulf Intelligence Global UAE Energy Forum, several traders offered cautious optimism in terms of upcoming energy demand. Commodity traders like Vitol stated they expected overall oil demand to rise by 6mn b/d this year, only partially reversing a 9mn b/d slump in demand last year. Jet fuel demand has been hit particularly hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, with border closures, travel restrictions and tight lockdown measures. Although the start of mass vaccination programmes across different countries has undoubtedly brought hope to several market players across the aviation industry, the International Air Travel Association (IATA) said in November that it does not expect global air passenger numbers to return to 2019 levels until 2024 at the earliest. IATA expects 2.8bn passengers to travel in 2021, 1bn more than in 2020 but 1.7bn fewer than in 2019.

OPEC+ also took an extremely cautious view to energy demand earlier this month. Saudi Arabia alone announced that it would make a 1mn b/d voluntary crude output cut in February and March. The cut is already on top of Saudi Arabia’s output commitment of 9.119mn b/d under the latest OPEC+ agreement and it will mean it will produce as little as 8.119mn b/d from the start of February. The UAE instead offered slight optimism, expecting global oil demand to return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of the year or early 2022 at the latest, citing OPEC+ efforts as the key determining factor. This was a markedly different assessment than that given by the Nigerian state-owned oil company NNPC, which expressed serious doubts that oil demand would recover to pre-Covid levels before the end of 2022.

Despite this a difference needs to be highlighted between the financial impacts felt by oil producers and those by commodity traders. While some oil-producing nations, heavily dependent on the absolute price of crude, have suffered greatly during the pandemic and have continued a general sentiment of pessimism when forecasting profits for the upcoming year, the scenario is different with that presented by oil traders. Several traders including Vitol, Glencore and the Petraco Group are less exposed to price volatility. The contango structure in futures markets has been beneficial to traders during 2020. When asked about their view on global oil demand, a spokesperson for Petraco Oil Company stated that ‘ultimately it all goes down to how many people become immunised against Covid-19 and by when. Realistically we do not see a significant portion of society being vaccinated before the first half of 2021 and we can therefore only expect some rebound in global oil demand in the latter part of the year’.
