Natural Resources Canada has launched a request for proposals (RFP) under its Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Deployment Initiative (EVAFID), which provides funding for electric vehicle fast charging and hydrogen and natural gas refueling projects across the country’s key transport corridors. The RFP calls for proposals to build fast chargers along underserved areas of Canada’s national highway system, which consists of over 38,000 kilometres of road across the nation including the Trans-Canada Highway as well as a number of smaller regional routes. The program also calls for hydrogen and natural gas refueling projects that will extend freight corridors or create new freight corridors. It is accepting applications until July 23rd, an application period which is extended to reflect the current outbreak of COVID-19.  NRCan will provide 50 per cent of funding for fast chargers rated for 50 kW and above, up to a maximum of $50,000 per charger.

Videokonferenzen mit Kollegen und danach Netflix schauen oder online spielen. In der Corona-Krise bleiben die Leute

Videokonferenzen mit Kollegen und danach Netflix schauen oder online spielen. In der Corona-Krise bleiben die Leute zu Hause und der Datenverkehr steigt. Am Internet-Knoten in Frankfurt hat sich der Datenverkehr von Videokonferenzen in der Coronavirus-Krise verdoppelt. Insgesamt sei der durchschnittliche Datenverkehr um zehn Prozent gestiegen, teilten die Betreiber des DE-CIX-Knotens am Mittwoch mit. “Die Nutzer sind nun auch tagsüber häufiger und länger online, das merken wir stark”, berichtete Technikchef Thomas King. An Kapazitätsgrenzen stößt der Internet-Knoten angesichts der Nutzungssteigerung demnach aber nicht. Die notwendigen Bandbreiten könnten bereitgestellt werden, “selbst wenn alle Firmen Europas ausschließlich aus dem Home-Office arbeiteten und nebenher noch ein weltweites sportliches Großevent übertragen werden würde”. Neben dem Anstieg beim Konferenz-Datenverkehr – wie beispielsweise über Skype oder Zoom – verdoppelte sich auch die Zahl der Nutzer von Online- und Cloud-Gaming-Plattformen. Der Social-Media-Datenverkehr sei deutlich gestiegen. Videostreaming-Anbieter hätten ihre Kapazitäten teilweise verdoppelt. Die Dienste hatten zul...

As Bradley promotes its new building as a collaborative space for students and the community, the

As Bradley promotes its new building as a collaborative space for students and the community, the Business and Engineering Convergence Center is designed to be widely accessible. However, some of the designs could come at a disadvantage. The convergence center is designed to have a better fire control system than most of the buildings on campus and multilayered access area control. As a result, the building has many sets of corridor doors. While most of the restrooms are double-doored and located behind corridor doors, the design may have created more barriers. The building has one gender neutral-restroom on the first floor and nine sets of male and female restrooms throughout all five levels – two sets on each of the four floors, and one set in the basement. Though all of the restrooms are labeled as handicap accessible, eight sets of them are double doored. Accessing the restroom also may require going through some fire doors. “Typically, with the code requirements, it’s the general idea of removing barriers,” said Kim Green, planning supervisor and sustainability coordinator at Bradley. “The double doors themselves [are] used primarily to minimize the line of the sight into ...
