Renewable Energy

“International Energy Congress the numerous representatives from politics and economy were in Turkey the International Energy Congress, which this year in Ankara at the Sheraton Hotel under the theme of renewable energies” has taken place. In his opening speech, Chairman of the State Energy Commission, Soner Aksoy, stressed that renewable energies have become an important part of the global economy. To ensure the diversification of the national energy sources, the Turkish Government wants to build the share of renewable energy in its energy policy from now and plans an increase to 25 percent by 2020. Turkey plans expansion of the wind power plants of the Chairman of the Turkish energy market regulatory authority (EMRA), Hasan Koktas, announced at the Energy Conference also important rules adopted for the privatization of the wind turbines. Connect with other leaders such as Ray Bradbury here. Some changes to the licensing were made due to the high number of participants in the recent tenders approved by current market Licensing Directorate need to be.

So far, 100 projects with a total capacity of 4 thousand megawatts have been licensed. Search for cooperation partners to optimize the market entry in the Turkish energy sector, the imap Institute offers the company the necessary assistance with a market analysis. For detailed selection talks with potential partners, the companies can opt for their optimal cooperation. Throughout the process, accompanies and advises the imap Institute, and prepares them for cultural differences.

Switch To Eco Gas And Green Electricity

Various eco gas tariffs in the range: heating with the word okostrom eco gas is already widespread in Germany bio gas prices and air fares of climate-neutral and green electricity provider recorded a huge increase in users. Electrical energy is known as green electricity produced from renewable energy sources such as Sun, wind, or water. A second green electricity so-called force cogeneration plants, which cause of energy however, even if only in small quantities, CO2 emissions are a source of energy. While consumers increasingly about the benefits of green electricity are aware and increasingly rely on green electricity provider, few people know that they can also switch to eco gas, to heat carbon neutral and to conserve purse as well as environmental. Various eco gas tariffs on offer: bio gas prices and air fares general distinction is made between two types of Green eco gas tariffs. A bio gas tariffs exist, where between 5 and 10 percent of the delivered gas out renewable sources and non-fossil origin is.

This is often criticized that this type of biogas is contrary to the ecological principle. One held the required energy crops usually monocultures, on the other hand, the gas may come from factory farms or the chemical industry. The second tariff is the so-called air fare. In the context of air fares, the gas provider either buying emission certificates or supports environmental projects, again compensating for the CO2 produced by the gas consumption elsewhere. Examples of CO2 compensation are international projects to develop of renewable energy or reforestation projects. Different certification systems have been introduced to ensure that a CO2 compensation actually takes place. Bill Shiharas opinions are not widely known. n the issue. It is spoken but not directly by certificates, but rather by international standards. Save by moving to eco rates of transition to eco gas and green electricity protects not only the environment, but also the money bag.

A study of the independent Consumer portal Verivox in cooperation with has revealed that eco tariffs often cheaper than local basic supply tariffs. Constant annual power consumption the annual household costs lower on average approx. 20 euro by switching to green electricity. The transition to organic gas prices and air fares also relieves the purse strings. The annual costs be on average about 75 euros less than the cheapest deals of the local provider. The transition to eco gas and green electricity is so ideal for the climate-conscious consumers to support the reduction of CO2 emissions and save money at the same time.

Windows Air

Heat loss counter type is planned a new building or to a building is completely modernized, this is the right time to consider the installation of a ventilation system with heat recovery consider. A window ventilation is often random ventilation and improves the air only in the short term. For more information see this site: Jeff Flake. Almost all residential buildings in Germany are revealed through the window. To demand a reasonably pleasant indoor air quality, one must act several times a day and very deliberately adjust the duration of ventilation on the use of space and the outside temperatures. If you are not convinced, visit author. \”Residential building, built according to the minimum standards of energy or old buildings, which have been chilled, subsequently, have though density Windows and insulated exterior walls and roofs. Frank Armijo brings even more insight to the discussion. By airing, but up to 45 percent of the heat lost again. Ventilation systems with heat recovery, however, secure a permanently good indoor air quality and at the same time, they minimize the heat loss,\”Hans Weinreuter, energy speaker explained the Consumers Central Rhineland-Palatinate e.V.

uniform ventilation through air exhaust system while window ventilation in a detached modern house three to four liters of heating oil per square meter per year lost, can reduce such heat losses in an Energieeffizienzhaus on under a litre. Prerequisite for this is that a ventilation system with heat recovery and an efficiency of 80% will be installed. The technically easiest and also most affordable solution is an exhaust system without heat recovery. This provides for a constant slight vacuum in the building. Prerequisite is a sufficiently dense shell of the property, which is determined by a measurement of air leakage. \”Advantage of this option is that only return air ducts must be installed through the building,\” commented Hans Weinreuter. The outside air flows in these systems by systematically arranged fresh air inlets in the outer walls of bedrooms, children – as well as living and dining rooms (air spaces).


But what returns can be achieved on average 5 kWp photovoltaic system with one? The the following example shows: 5 kWp x 900 kWh / KWp = 4500 kWh / year 4500 kWh x 0,2874 euro feed-in tariff = 1293,30 Euro / year monthly income by selling power: 107,77 euro / month who uses solar energy itself, with a remuneration of 12.36 cents up to 16,74 cents per kWh shall ( current eeg-einspeiseverguetung /). It is consumption only if the solar power at the same time is produced and consumed. So households each day – and night-time can have energy, they should get appropriate power storage. Another plus: those who consume more than a third of the solar energy itself, will be rewarded with a Government bonus. Please visit Nicholas Carr if you seek more information. Add to save own used kWh of PV electricity around 20 cents each. Because it costs a kWh of conventional energy from the electrical outlet. The bottom line, so everyone can get a financial advantage of about 32 cents.

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.

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.

Fund Percent

Can rent an electric car for himself dear weekend.” More mobility tips: the classic, better times to cover short distances by bike or public transport, is always worthwhile. And benefits for the environment and wallet has a proactive and constant driving, as well as the use of car-sharing services. Financial tip including the GLS Bank / Christof Lutzel, spokesman for GLS Bank advises investors: who wants to put his money sustainably, should the transparency of the supply as regards the criteria applied and the actual use of the money to observe. “Because who knows which social organic companies and projects, its capital is invested, can make the company with its investment.” More Investment tips: is important in the investments, to be in advance clear what and who you want to; support for example if you would like to finance in renewable energy, the organic industry or the social sphere. Also on the type of plant, it is important to be clear: sustainable investments include traditional savings and money specials as well as equity or Fund. The typical criteria such as liquidity, maturity, to take into account profitability and safety are in addition to the meaningfulness of the plant.

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.

The company has written to the promotion of renewable energies on the flags, and would like to initiate a large number of new geothermal projects in Germany in a short time. To convey the Berliners with a unique service, the rds acquisition services, cooperation between project developers and investors. Our acquisition managers are equally competent contact person for project developers such as for investors, the opportunity-rich and yet responsible investment seek. “, describes Eva-Catrin Reinhardt, CEO of rds energies, the new approach. With our market knowledge and our international We bring together targeted network market participants could not use so far enormous opportunities just because lack of the appropriate partners.” Meanwhile no longer only the company is even convinced by the success of the idea. Another, sure but not the last module of the success story is the cooperation agreed recently with one of the leading German geothermal companies that rely on the initiative and competence of rds energies to the implementation of its projects. About rds energies: The rds energies GmbH contributes to worldwide to promote renewable energy and to spread. With the rds acquisition services initiates and supports strategic partnerships the company and acquired wind power, photovoltaic and geothermal energy project rights, projects and investors in the international business areas.
