Watch Gregg Allman And Dickey Betts Play “Melissa” In Duane’s Honor

first_img“Melissa” was always Duane Allman‘s favorite song to hear his brother sing. So ten years after his death, Gregg Allman, Dickey Betts, and “Dangerous” Dan Toler took the stage at NBC Studios to perform the emotional song in his honor.Gregg Allman would often recount memories of his brother Duane at the dinner table, asking him to “play that song… the one about the girl.” While the core of the band died in the early 1970s, when Duane and Berry Oakley died in motorcycle accidents a year apart from each other, the last 40+ years have been dedicated to prolonging the life of the music through the remaining members, and whatever iteration of players the original bandmates recruited throughout time.The music stayed strong for 45 years, until the Allman Brothers Band officially played their last show in October of 2014. While Gregg, Butch Trucks, and Jaimoe all played in their respective bands outside of the ABB, there was still hope that the band would reunite for a 50th anniversary. With the deaths of Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks this year, we regret to realize the time has passed.Gregg Allman’s voice and songwriting has proved timeless already, and will continue to warm our hearts for years to come. Watch the 1981 performance, and take a moment to let it sink in.last_img read more

Analysts see Europe passing U.S. in battery storage installation by 2023

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Greentech Media:A slew of recent announcements has left Europe poised to overtake North America in terms of battery manufacturing capacity by 2023, analyst figures show.Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) expects European nameplate lithium-ion battery manufacturing capacity to top 198 gigawatt-hours a year by 2023, up from roughly 18 gigawatt-hours a year today. This more than tenfold growth over the next few years should allow Europe to overtake North America, which is set to have around 130 gigawatt-hours a year of manufacturing capacity by 2023, according to the analyst firm.“Europe is moving away from being a laggard to committing serious amounts of capital and state support,” said Logan Goldie-Scot, head of energy storage at BNEF.However, neither region will come anywhere close to matching the battery manufacturing capacity forecast for China. China is expected to boast around 800 gigawatt-hours of annual manufacturing capacity by 2023, or two-thirds of a global total of just over 1.2 terawatt-hours, BNEF figures show.Furthermore, much of the manufacturing capacity currently being built or planned in Europe belongs to Chinese and other Asian manufacturers.China-based Contemporary Amperex Technology, for example, is investing in a 14-gigawatt-hour-a-year battery factory in Germany after signing EV supply deals with German carmakers BMW and Volkswagen. Another Chinese battery manufacturer, Svolt Energy Technology, is planning a European base with 24 gigawatt-hours of production capacity a year by 2025. Elsewhere, South Korean manufacturers including LG Chem, Samsung SDI and SK Innovation are planning to expand their European operations.More: Europe set to race past U.S. in battery manufacturing Analysts see Europe passing U.S. in battery storage installation by 2023last_img read more
