A Toshiba Corporation (TÓKIO:6502), anunciou hoje que fechou um importante contrato de fornecimento de 3 x turbinas e geradores geotérmicos (STG) a vapor de 60 megawatts para uma das maiores usinas de energia geotérmica do mundo, o projeto de usina de energia geotérmica de Sarulla, que agora está em construção em Tapanali Utara no norte de Sumatra na Indonésia.
Toshiba, o fornecedor líder mundial de equipamentos de geração de energia geotérmica, fechou contrato com a Sarulla Operations Ltd. (SOL), um consórcio de quatro empresas da Itochu Corporation e Kyushu Electric Power Co. Inc. do Japão, PT Medco Power Indonesia da Indonésia, e ORMAT International, Inc. dos EUA. O contratante de engenharia, aquisição e construção (EPC) é a Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co., Ltd. (HDEC). A Toshiba vai começar a fornecer STGs para a HDEC em julho de 2015, e a usina está programada para começar a operação em novembro de 2016. Sua produção será responsável por aproximadamente 1% da geração de energia total da Indonésia.
A Indonésia ocupa o segundo lugar do mundo em termos de recursos geotérmicos do mundo, um potencial de capacidade de geração de 28.000MW, mas a capacidade instalada até hoje é de apenas 1.300MW*1. Com o crescimento puxando a demanda e deficiências no abastecimento, o governo indonésio está promovendo energia geotérmica como um meio para aumentar a capacidade de geração e reduzir a dependência do petróleo, onde a demanda superou a produção local em 2004. Os planos de governo incluem projetos IPP com capacidade para 12.000MW*2 em 2025, que o governo japonês está apoiando através do seu programa de empréstimo de ienes.
Toshiba, uma empresa líder em equipamentos de geração de energia, tem recursos de classe mundial em equipamentos de geração de energia nuclear, térmica e renovável. A empresa entrou no negócio de energia geotérmica em 1966 com o fornecimento de um conjunto de STG para a usina de Matsukawa, primeira usina geotérmica do Japão e expandiu-se posteriormente para a Islândia, sudeste da Ásia e América do Norte. Hoje, a Toshiba é líder mundial na fabricação de STGs, com uma fatia de mercado de 23%*3e tem fornecido 52 unidades com capacidade instalada de 2.800MW. Nos últimos anos, os recursos tecnológicos da Toshiba apoiaram a obtenção de pedidos para STG de energia geotérmica na Nova Zelândia, Quênia e Turquia.
A Toshiba está altamente familiarizada com o mercado indonésio, onde é líder no fornecimento de equipamentos de geração de energia. O registro da empresa até a data inclui 12 turbinas e geradores a vapor com uma capacidade combinada de 4.200MW para quatro usinas termoelétricas, incluindo a usina de energia termoelétrica que queima carvão Tanjung Jati B; 26 turbinas e geradores hidrelétricos, com uma capacidade combinada de 1.500MW para 11 usinas hidrelétricas; e o projeto de Patuha Unit 1, uma usina de energia geotérmica de 55MW agora em construção, em Java Ocidental.
O mercado global de energia geotérmica continua a crescer substancialmente, com novas oportunidades aparecendo ao redor do mundo. Até o final de 2013, o mercado global de energia geotérmica deverá chegar a 12.000 MW*1 de capacidade geotérmica. Países com potencial notável incluem os Estados Unidos, Indonésia, Japão, Filipinas, México, Islândia, Nova Zelândia e Itália. A Toshiba continuará a participar de projetos que promovem recursos renováveis baixos em termos de emissão de dióxido de carbono e amigáveis com o meio ambiente, incluindo a energia geotérmica.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
