Since this week the project financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in the Canadian province of Québec is in place: KfW IPEX-Bank is providing a long-term project financing loan of up to CAD 61.7 million. Supplier of the wind turbines is REpower, a German manufacturer of wind energy systems based in Hamburg. The project is being managed by the Canadian developer Innergex Renewable Energy Inc. jointly with the regional country municipality (RCM) Rivière-du-Loup.
Markus Scheer, member of the Management Board of KfW IPEX-Bank, commented on the closing: "KfW IPEX-Bank's financing for the Viger-Denonville wind farm in Canada focuses on one of the bank's priorities, namely environmental and climate protection. As REpower is involved in the project, the bank is also supporting the export of German-built wind turbines. We are pleased to work together once again with REpower, a long-time valued business partner of KfW IPEX-Bank."
Plans call for the wind farm to be erected by the end of this year. When commercial operation begins 12 REpower MM92 wind turbines with a total capacity of 24.6 MW will supply several thousand Canadian households with green energy every year. In addition to supplying the turbines REpower is also in charge of commissioning and maintenance of the systems for the first ten years. Offtaker is the energy supply company Hydro Québec.

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
