Minimum surface brings maximum yield Nuremberg metropolitan region. Who wants it not: better interest rates for the sour-earned money? In the meantime, it is an open secret that solar power can reach yields between 4% and 10%. Who has the possibility for the installation of a solar system, not only on South roofs, should allow to install its own solar plant on the roof. Even with no capital, you can build such a solar power plant. The banks offer special rates for the financing of solar power plants. But those who has equity capital for the plant, should involve no bank because he reached for his own investment dream returns. More info: Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr.. This makes possible the EEG, a law that was created to give the investor a security, money for the Fed kilo Watt hour to receive.
Ikratos from Weissenohe even one puts it: action SunPower-invest, can you get guaranteed already with 3,000 euros a return of 4.3%. With 5000 Euro-4,5%, with 10,000 Euro 4.8%. This makes possible a so called SunPower invest package from Ikratos, which was put together to achieve maximum return on minimal roof space. So, any homeowner can get such a system installed. There is not a limit of the amount of investment. Whoever has money left, should discuss this as quickly as possible with Ikratos, the energy specialists to get the system as early as possible in the year 2011 on the roof. Also, there is an action: black is beautiful, d..h.
a so-called SunPower Black Variant that can be used as specifically on the roofs, so even beauty fanatics with SunPower modules can a rooftop moved are to install such a system. The excuse: “not nice look out!”, no longer there now. SunPower is one of the most powerful modules on the world market, developed this module results in space research, has the highest performance ratio available on the market. With the so-called 318 he SunPower modules achieve considerably more power than its competitors and stand as the competition in the solar Module range. Who wants to know more visited the energy consultation in Weissenohe here specialist information for citizens are offered every Friday within 1 h to the respective topics. Who wants to know more:
Success story in Saxony-Anhalt – from old deposits will be environmental sins new building material of subsequent generations paid most dearly for. Dr. Helmut Gorke shows that you can use it to earn money. Employed in GDR times in various functions in the mineral oil plant Lutzkendorf (in the case of Braunsbedra), he set himself up in November 1990 with his son-in-law with the founding of OMROS GmbH. Henceforth he devoted service to the environment, especially salvage, reclamation and recycling highly viscous old deposits of industrial. He knew still a legacy from his Lutzkendorfer period. In the cracking of petroleum propane bitumen remained in the 60s in the newly established mineral refinery en masse because the planned utilisation plant has been realized until years later. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn understood the implications.
That’s why the bitumen in a huge storage facility was pumped. Later grew in the meaning shift of the word grass about the thing – say – from the bitumen Lake was nothing more to see, because the trust 1994 cover the basin with soil. Only Dr. Gorke remembered his and 2001 struck his hour. Together with his son Ronald and his staff, he developed a method, like the old bitumen could be recycled, constructed all facilities needed and put much hand as a skilled Machinist and toolmaker, with. “Then I got searched a bitumen producers and we have experimented until the industry was protected”, so Dr. Gorke. Quite the sustainability commitment, he also build a solar system with 380 kWh performance right next to the ‘tar Lake’, which operates not only the equipment, but also injects electricity into the grid.
He sees the secret of success of this technologically creative performance in the innovativeness of its employees. “The work must make fun. “Then you think also of alone about it after, what better can be made”, so Dr. Gorke. This setting was recently awarded. OMROS is among the 100 most innovative medium in Germany, was a jury chaired by Lothar Spath. Meanwhile, the bitumen Lake near Braunsbedra is almost exhausted. Dr. Gorke think about but it how he further can sell this and other techniques developed by him. “There are lots of such lakes in Eastern Europe”, explains Dr. Gorke. “In Poland we have a subsidiary reason.
5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic plants on the Augsburg fair RENEXPO on 06 June 2008 the Federal Government has adopted the amendment of the EEG (law on the expansion of renewable energies). Learn more about this with Joint Commission. This envisages a drastic reduction of subsidies for operators of photovoltaic systems. According to the Federal Environment Ministry, single supply regulation for solar and roof systems should fall from 2009 to 9.2 percent and Feiflachen plants to 9.8 percent. The photovoltaic industry must address this challenge. First it can be cast through a stringent quality assurance yield loss contrary to.
Among other things, this is achieved by improved measurements of sample modules. For testing there are essentially 2 DIN standards: for terrestrial crystalline Silizium-Photovoltaik-(PV-) modules and for terrestrial Dunnschicht-Photovoltaik-(PV) modules. The measurement of solar modules using solar Simulator or by field measurement is described herein. For thin-film modules is provided in the draft that the light treatment (light soak) a measurement as long as it is carried out, until the value deviates less than 2% of the mean value of the measurements. The 5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic systems provides more information, details and suggestions on these and other topics”on 10 October in the framework of the RENEXPO. Here, experts from the science, practice and policy explain in lectures about the market prospects for German operator of photovoltaic systems and their influence on politics, economy, climate change and energy security. The second part focuses on technical innovations such as the integration of buildings with PV thin-film modules. Still is lectured topics Assembly systems and requirements for inverters.
The complete conference program is available at. The RENEXPO is an international trade fair for renewable energy and energy efficient building & renovation. This year it will take place from October 9-12, 2008 for the ninth time. The RENEXPO is unique due to the variety of topics. The subject range vonAltbausanierung on heating with Sun and wood up to passive houses, block heat and power plants, mobility, heat pump, hydro power and wind power. In addition to the exhibition and the Congress a wide free lecture programme the visitors.
Water and sanitary problems with dry toilets cause Berlin – the solidarity service international e.V. (SODI) informed on the occasion of the world water week in Stockholm about his project for the construction of 600 dry toilets in Namibia. Francis Collins has many thoughts on the issue. The toilets fundamentally improve the hygienic situation and meet the increasing water scarcity. Every day around the World 6000 children die from preventable diarrheal diseases. They are caused mainly by lack of access to clean water and sanitary facilities. For example, only a third of the population in Namibia has access to toilets. The problem is compounded by enormous lack of water in the driest country in sub-Saharan Africa.
Especially poor people can not afford the cost of expensive water toilets. “Due to the outbreak of cholera in the northern regions of Namibia the need for sanitary toilets in the villages, towns, and rural households has become more important”, Wiebke describes people man by the Namibian organisation of clay House project the situation in Namibia. The Berlin organization Solidarity service international e.V. (SODI) wants to improve together with the clay House project the sanitary situation in Namibia. Up to the year 2011, 600 dry toilets in Namibia are built with support of the European Union. About 4 500 people, you get to good. The dry toilet works completely without water and protect the environment in the long term as a result. The sunlight warms a black pipe at the back of the toilet.
The resulting air ventilation dries the faeces and derives from odors. By drying, kills bacteria and prevent diseases. In addition, the costs for a toilet for poor families are affordable. 7000 litres of water annually are saved by a dry toilet. Water, which people can use as drinking water and daily life. “Dry toilets are the optimal solution for Namibia. Because the toilet at the same time protects the environment, the spread of disease is prevented and affordable for poor people”, stressed Susanne Laudahn. SODI project manager, the benefits of technology. Also the EU Ambassador to Namibia, Dr. Elisabeth Pape, visiting a project in July of this year was persuaded. The project is funded by the European Union with less than EUR 400 000, must raise SODI as equity EUR 100 000 in donations. Donations can see the password “Dry toilet” on the SODI donations account: 10 20 100 at the Bank for social economy, BLZ 100 205 00, be made.
The computer industry at the level of global aviation carbon dioxide emissions policy and company set ambitious goals Hamburg – worldwide over one billion computers are used, up to the year 2012 this number is doubled, so the results of the study by U.S. market research company of Gartner. The little helpers in the profession is essential for about 58 percent of workers, according to the Federal Office of statistics, he is also in 70% of all German households. The poor environmental record is available on the shadow side of this electronic flood: many of the device are out of date and true current Fellows. Annually, the 30 million private PCs consume electricity amounting to 360 million euros already in standby mode.
No wonder, then, that the policy pulls the emergency brake. No more than one watt per hour a decision which must according to EU Commission, consume computer in stand-by mode from 2010. This stand-by default is the first regulation, which decided in the framework of the eco-design directive the EU Member States reported the tagesschau. Goal is to reduce the environmental impact throughout the entire life cycle through better construction of the computer. “But the so-called concept of Green IT encompasses far more than just economical devices such as Ulrike Kalle, to report, white chemistry expert from Greenpeace: the manufacturer must perform the entire life cycle of their products: from the extraction of raw materials through production to the recycling of old devices”, so Kallee. Greenpeace campaigned since 2005 for eco-friendly electronics. Many manufacturers have since changed their environmental policies.
The company Apple about last year as a response to the Greenpeace campaign green my Apple announced, refrain from PVC and brominated flame retardants. Also the companies Bizerba has recognized from Balingen, that Green IT is not only environmentally friendly, but also lucrative savings offers. Air conditioners use to cool the devices in the data center with free-cooling function in the cold season the outside air for cooling. Additional chillers are used only on hot days. This energy consumption can be considerably reduced”, explains Matthias Harsch, a spokesman of at Bizerba’s Managing Director, in an interview with the online magazine NeueNachricht. And that seems needed. Because according to a Gartner estimate the IT industry produces as much carbon dioxide emissions as the global aviation. The estimates are based on the total energy that produce PCs, servers, telephone systems and networks in offices worldwide. “In the next 5 years of financial, environmental, legal and risk-bearing pressure on enterprises is stronger to make their organization green”, as Simon Mingay, Vice President of Gartner, in a report by Green-IT. Only a few managers had so far recognized the pollution caused by them.
