Chile has introduced a new long-term energy strategy under which at least 70% of national electricity generation is to come from renewable sources by 2050.The new energy strategy was presented in the document ‘Energy 2050’ prepared from information gathered since August 2014 through workshops and discussions held throughout Chile, with the strategic proposals from the Consultative Committee led by the Energy Minister Máximo Pacheco.The President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, welcomed this approach, as “a policy built in this manner with effective participation ensures that all stakeholders believe it to be their policy, which is the cornerstone of its legitimacy. We are delighted to be able to say that we now have a solid National Energy Policy to enable us to plan and coordinate our efforts.”In addition to 70% renewables generation commitment, other goals set by the new policy state that all energy projects in Chile are to have community engagement programs, all the main categories of electrical equipment sold in Chile are to include energy efficient equipment, Chile is to be connected to the Andean Electricity Interconnection System and to Mercosur countries, among others.Creating this strategy was part of President Bachelet’s Government program and the Energy Agenda submitted in May 2014, Government of Chile’s press release reads.
Due to the large volume of international maritime trade passing through the South China Sea, the European Commission said that freedom of navigation and overflight must remain in the area.As China continues constructing islands in the area, the EU expressed its concerns about the situation in the East and South China Seas, and added that the EU should “continue to emphasise the importance of peaceful settlement of disputes and to oppose unilateral actions that could alter the status quo and increase tensions.”The European Commission said that the EU wants to see free passage and overflight upheld in the East and South China Seas as it aims to set out a policy framework for EU engagement with China for the next five years.The announcement follows China’s latest plans to launch cruise lines which would operate in the disputed area starting from July.Namely, the country’s shipping major China COSCO Shipping Corporation (COSCOCS) said that its first route would depart from China’s Sanya to the Yongle Island, part of the disputed Xisha Islands, which are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan.The company reportedly also plans to launch other routes in the South China Sea and Taiwan Straits.World Maritime News Staff

An employment tribunal has been ordered to look again at whether a claim against a law firm should continue, after the judge’s initial decision was found to be inadequately explained.The tribunal had decided in Duncan Lewis Solicitors Ltd v Puar to show leniency to the claimant and set aside an order that her claim be struck out.But sitting in the Employment Appeal Tribunal, The Honour Mr Justice Soole ordered the issue of relief from sanctions be considered afresh, having found the tribunal judge’s decision was ‘vitiated by a lack of adequate reasoning’.Puar had brought claims for wrongful and unfair dismissal, race discrimination, bullying/harassment, victimisation and notice pay against the London firm, where she worked as a caseworker for two years until her dismissal. The firm cited in grounds of dismissal her alleged performance and conduct during her probationary period.The case appeared doomed after Puar was found in default of an unless order requiring her to set out the claims in detail. But it was effectively rescued when Employment Judge Bedeau, sitting at Watford tribunal, set aside the order to strike out the claims.The judge, it was reported, accepted Puar’s account that she did not believe she had to comply with the initial case management orders. Although he accepted Duncan Lewis would ‘suffer some prejudice’ from not having the full picture of Paur’s claims, he said this prejudice would be overcome. He said the firm had taken a neutral stance on whether a fair trial was possible and concluded ‘with some reluctance’ to favour the claimant.Duncan Lewis said the judge failed to assess the seriousness of the default and insisted that a fair trial was not possible. Even by November’s hearing, it was submitted the claimant had still failed to comply with orders for clarification of her case. Puar, who appeared in person, argued the decision to preserve her case had been adequately reasoned and urged that cases ‘should not lightly be ruled out on a procedural technicality without determination on the merits’.In the appeal ruling, Soole J said the judge had given ‘no adequate reasons’ for his decision on the issue of the seriousness of the default. He said it was a mischaracterisation to describe Duncan Lewis’ position on a fair trial as neutral, and said the judge gave no adequate reasons for his conclusion that a fair trial was possible.He ordered that the fact-sensitive exercise looking at the reasons for Paur’s non-compliance with the unless order be considered completely afresh. This would include the question of whether Paur was in default of the order.
