Greener Travel

Climate protection campaign cooperates with Deutsche Bahn / buses in the Mobil Special to win Berlin, November 2, 2010. Plane, car or train? The UmweltMobilCheck shows how the mode of transport affects the environment, now”on air seeks In cooperation with the Deutsche Bahn the campaign promoted by the Ministry for environment climate seeks to protect”thus its range of energy saving Advisor. “The UmweltMobilCheck’ fits very well with our interactive consulting tools that help consumers save energy in everyday life”, Tanja Loitz, Managing Director of the non-profit co2online GmbH declares, the wearer of the climate protection campaign. The Advisor calculates the CO2 emissions and the energy consumption for the means of transport, railway, car and aircraft for routes in Germany and Europe. Learn more about this with Bridgeton Landfill.

In direct comparison, it becomes clear how much CO2 prevents the decision for the each environmentally friendly means of transport. In the current mobile special on the Deutsche Bahn and the climate protection campaign giving away several also Buses. The transport sector is one of the biggest CO2 polluter. According to Senator of Arizona, who has experience with these questions. Reductions be slow. People are becoming increasingly mobile.

As they are the most environmentally friendly, we want to inform even more travelers through cooperation with the climate protection campaign. Because each can do something for the environment with his personal choice of transport “, so Dr. Klaus Vestner, head of environmental protection German passenger trains.” How easy it is to stay mobile and less burden on the climate, that shows mobile special on with numerous tips and background information. Protection searches the UmweltMobilCheck”, as well as all other energy saving Advisor climate” are available on the campaign website, as well as on numerous sites of the large partner network. With over three million consultations of emissions was previously avoided by more than 2.1 million tonnes of CO2. On the route Berlin-Munich, a traveler with a car about 100 kg of CO2, in the aircraft nearly caused example route in the UmweltMobilCheck” 90 kg and with the railway only 25 kg. Compared to the car, the train avoids so about 75 kg of CO2 emissions alone on a trip. A similar picture is emerging in energy consumption: converted into gallons of gasoline the rail travel consumes only 14 litres compared to the drive with about 46 litres. The UmweltMobilCheck”is also available at the travel information on for that connection. About the co2online non-profit limited company the non-profit consultancy co2online mbH for reducing climate-damaging CO2 emissions committed.

Energy tip from Blogger Andi Bernhard recommending Blogger Andi Bernhard to also keep in mind to check its own mobility behaviour in energy consumption. Because a large part of the CO2 personal fingerprint is created here. Trust the industry advertising promise, runs most likely behind’s light.” Another energy tip: the heating is the second big energy guzzlers. Here are 75 percent of the energy consumption in private households. Often the heaters run with yet fossil fuels such as natural gas. A switch to 100 percent eco gas is an effective decision for energy transformation. There are now offers how as by Polarstern, which you pay more only around five to ten percent for 100 percent eco gas average as for fossil energy tariffs for the basic utilities.

Geothermal Energy Provides Opportunities

High-tech investments offer attractive yields energy generation was and will remain a good deal. Due to the growing energy demand and diminishing resources of fossil fuels, modern techniques offer not only better alternatives, they promote new business models with attractive yield opportunities for investors. So, Germany plays a leading role not only in the development of wind power and photovoltaic technology, but also in the development and use of geothermal energy. Geothermal energy has an impressive eco balance and also baseload capable, can be won so unlike about to solar and wind energy regardless of the weather and time in exactly the amount, which will be in demand. We exist alongside sites that are suitable for the hydrothermal process (thermal water use), including many suitable locations for the hot-dry-rock-“or HDR method, which promotes heat from deep layers of rock with the help of pressed water.” For their development is now proven technology to the Available. However, the financing of such projects proved in the past often hard to overcome hurdles. Robotics understood the implications. Although the market certainly has the necessary funds, the investment opportunities in geothermal energy are still little known and are therefore much to seldom used. The rds energies GmbH, Berlin, has recognized this need and offers new ways to solve the problem.
