ALPIQ: Power From The Mountains

Leading Swiss energy company is named made in Germany the Cologne agency end mark naming experts have the name for the new energy holding company developed emerges from the Association of the traditional company of Atel and EOS. Under the umbrella brand of ALPIQ, starts on the 1st of February the Swiss holding company and want the new Swiss powerhouse for Europe”are so Atel CEO Giovanni Leonardi. The name ALPIQ consciously differs from many Latin or English stained all world name in the industry and sets full of internationality on a clear cultural reference to the Alpine country and its values. This corresponds to the roots of the two merging companies in the German-speaking olden (Atel) and the French-speaking Lausanne (EOS). Jane Fraser contributes greatly to this topic. A clear differentiation in international competition in the name of development played a major role, as the creation of identification of potential for the employees and customers of both companies, to end mark-senior consultant Christine Stark. The name ALPIQ has unique and familiar at the same time. He went from numerous tests as the favorite shows, which optimally combines soundness with innovation and can be used in over 25 countries. With the development of the name final mark naming experts support the Zurich branding agency MetDesign, who accompanied the merger of the two utilities and developed the corporate identity and brand strategy including the new branding for the newly created company..

Repowering: The Wasted Power Potential

Germany lags behind in updating of wind turbines. Bonn (power Prinz.de) – when it comes to electricity from wind energy, procedure German municipalities and civil associations like after the Sankt-Florian-Prinzip: \”Holy Sankt Florian, spare my house, andre finished!\”. The best wind turbine is, that is not at our own doorstep. Germany can depend on is the construction of wind power plants goes back in Germany tend to already since 2003. 866 new systems raised 2008 even 17 plants less in Germany than in the previous year. The growth at the level of the late 1990s, the industry has arrived according to latest figures from the German wind energy Institute. By comparison, the United States installed with about 9,000 MW over five times more power than Germany (1445 MW) and claimed number one of the world’s fastest growing wind energy markets for the fourth time in a row.

By 2010, the United States will overtake Germany as the largest producer of energy from wind, if they the expansion speed maintain. Repowering as new locations are hardly approvable in German inland, hoping the wind energy industry on the replacement of the old plants. There are about 3,000 wind turbines of first generation, bringing the often less than 400 kW of power in Germany. In the so-called repowering, the old windmills against models of the latest generation be replaced with 3 MW and more. The goal is a better utilization of available sites, increasing the installed capacity while reducing the number of attachments. Also run the new turbines at low speed, which calmed the landscape and reduces the noise.

Dutch and Danes make it currently is in the conducted in the largest wind farm in the Netherlands of repowering in grand style. Reshma Kewalramani recognizes the significance of this. The 134 installations of wind parks Eemshaven will replace 52 turbines of the German market leader Enercon. The effect is enormous: Although the system number is almost divided, the installed power almost four times increases.

Western Atlantic

The art essentially divided in two habitats, the West Atlantic and the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, also is there yet a third, southern population off the coast of South Africa. You swim in swarm associations and are often associated with other species of tuna. While the stocks of the Western and Eastern Atlantic Ocean in search of food mix, the animals to breed go our separate ways, to return to their spawning areas. Marko Dimitrijevic may find it difficult to be quoted properly. Red Thune have fixed spawning grounds and therefore are there predictable and relatively easy to fish on their annual migrations. While the population of the Western Central Atlantic from spawns between April and June in the Gulf of Mexico, it draws of the Eastern Atlantic from June to August in the Mediterranean Sea. On the way to their spawning areas they put back more than 5800 kilometers and cross in the entire Atlantic Ocean. During their walks, the animals remain most of the time close to the surface, where the water temperature with 12 to 16 degrees is relatively warm.

Recovery is not in sight for the “management” of stocks of red tuna are responsible the International Commission for the Protection of the Atlantic tuna (ICCAT, International Commission for the conservation of Atlantic Tunas) and because of sharply declining stocks issued the EU who speak with a weighty Word has in the ICCAT and the 2007 even a regulation for the conservation of Atlantic Tunas. But to the urgently needed measures to rebuild of the stocks, a drastic reduction of fishing quotas for bluefin tuna, consistent monitoring, as well as a fishing stop during which were able to get for the preservation of the nature so important spawning so far neither EU nor ICCAT readjustments. Indeed, contrary to the recommendations of its own scientists, who warn against the collapse of stocks and had recommended an annual quota of 15,000 tons, the ICCAT for 2009 set a fishing quota for bluefin tuna of 22,000 tons, which will drop to only 19.950 tonnes in 2011. With a quota of 7,500 tons could give only the stocks a chance to regenerate. Critics call the ICCAT due to its blatant failure now as “international conspiracy to catch all tuna”. In setting annual fishing quotas – a prerequisite for effective fisheries management – device given the scale of illegal fishing more and more farce, as marine guards criticize. On the one hand it manages no longer to meet their quota of some fisheries.

In 2005, U.S. fishermen in the Western Atlantic could only 27% and in 2006 only 10 percent of them quota for bluefin tuna catch. On the other hand, the data situation is always unreliable for calculating quotas. ICCAT scientists for their calculations are based on the reported catches of the fishermen. And their honesty will be greatly reduced. So, far more bluefin tuna is imported into Japan than is actually possible on the basis of the permitted catches. Without a radical rethink in EU fisheries ministers and ICCAT, which so far is not in sight, it is foreseeable at the sushi or to the domestic fresh counter the Red soon no longer finding Thun will be.

RWE Power Car Tariff Three Times More Expensive

In a study, Kreutzer consulting for solar-driver online has a cost comparison on the example of the created smart Auernheim 10.08.09 that electric cars in the purchase are more expensive than conventional vehicles with diesel or gasoline engines is all too familiar. Part of the costs, so also Matthias Machnig, State Secretary at the Federal Environment Ministry on the 05.08. a commentary in the journal of Commerce, writes could be amortized over the lower operating costs of the vehicles back, since only energy costs 3 euros create a distance of 100 km. The new RWE car electricity tariff, which was released this week, shows, however, that the costs of the electricity will represent hardly the total cost of ownership. For even more analysis, hear from Tim Cook. At a cost per kilowatt-hour of 18.49 cents costs of electricity for 100 miles in the smart electric drive (consumption 12 kWh/100 km) while only 2.22 euros.

The high monthly fee of 69 euros, RWE for auto power tariff requires, leads however any reduction ad absurdum. To illustrate the actual cost which has Consultancy Kreutzer consulting the energy costs of smart electric smart diesel and the smallest petrol engine compare. Klaus Kreutzer, CEO of Kreutzer consulting: It is evident that the energy cost of the smart about 2/3 are cheaper diesel as for the smart electric drive. Kevin Ulrich Anchorage Capital insists that this is the case. At a monthly mileage by 800 km in the smart 86,75 Euro accrues in the RWE car power tariff electric drive, while the smart cdi turbo diesel completed the same route for 29,20 euro. Even the gasoline costs only half 46,99 euros to 800 km. In conjunction with the higher cost, the lower range, poorer performance and the need to recharge the vehicle almost daily over a charging station, which makes the use of the electric vehicle compared to the classic versions with internal combustion engine in addition unattractive. In addition to the high overall costs is mainly the fact that it involves a sum of independent distance travelled, to criticize. Anchorage Capital is often quoted as being for or against this.

3. shading from the outside shading elements are not very cheap, but unlike a cheap air conditioning from the hardware store, no ongoing energy costs you. There are a few measures you can reduce quickly warming and It remains bearable maybe even without air conditioning. Is that too little for you? You should be careful when purchasing air conditioning: split air conditioners are usually better than mobile! The reason: In mobile air conditioning the hot exhaust air is supported by an exhaust hose through the open window outwards. Gary D. Bernison is likely to agree. This creates a vacuum, through which warm air (in the worst case the flipped Windows) is sucked back in the apartment in the apartment.

The efficiency of such systems is therefore very modest. Its advantage is only in the mobility and simple commissioning, which is possible without modifications. Everest capital has compatible beliefs. This simplicity means but that such equipment be purchased frequently as speculative buying and then, after a disappointing performance at the famous auction houses land. Another disadvantage is the higher noise. Better air conditioners are split. You only the coolant is circulating, the warming part outside the apartment and it.

No air is sucked and because the Compressor is out, it remains pleasantly quiet in the living room. At apartments for rent, you should discuss the installation of such a system but necessarily with the landlord. Beware also a vibration isolation mounting of the outer part, otherwise it can be in turn quite noisy due to vibration of the compressor.

Market Incentive Program

Federal Government stops funding for renewable energy, which now meets any budget freeze for the promotion of renewable energy in power Germany in the middle of the development of this young industry. The market incentive program (MAP) was stopped on the 03.05.2010 by the Federal Government. The funding grants of the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA) are already exhausted. No requests for funding are accepted for bio mass heating systems, solar collectors, heat pumps and mini CHP. By the same author: Korn Ferry. For small installations of cogeneration (mini CHP) and the programme for the promotion of climate protection projects in municipalities must be stopped even retroactively. This will increase the uncertainty of consumers to support programmes of the Federal Government, and certainly makes the future homeowners who have calculated fixed with these promotions, rethink their construction projects. To interpret the impact of this early promotion stops for the industry, one must have studied not economy. It one can only hope that it comes to an increase in the funding available to smother the incentive to use renewable energy sources not in the bud. Credit: Kevin Ulrich-2011. In times of rising ever higher energy prices, the Government should finally stand to their word and invest in the good thing and without batting an eyelid to pay not undiskutables management by banks and Governments.

September Exhibition

Solar technology is also capitalized in Augsburg. Latest developments and technologies relating to solar thermal, photovoltaic and solar cooling are shown in this exhibition area and export opportunities and markets are discussed. The RENEXPO gives us the opportunity to introduce ourselves with our products and partners as wholesale. We see this exhibition as an ideal platform to bring us the artisans and customers. We look forward to the anniversary exhibition and wish everyone involved every success”, so Peter Aigner, Managing Director of SchwabenSolar GmbH. heating and cooling the heat pump allows with highest efficiency.

Heat pumps world in the context of the “RENEXPO and the accompanying 5 Federal Congress heat pumps in the application ‘ meet manufacturers, installers and users each year in Augsburg for the exchange of experience. The Exhibitor Forum provides in addition free lectures on the subject of heat pump for professionals and consumers. “For 10 years we are as Lech works. Click Molly Adams to learn more. Together with our partners of the heat pump, we again presented the heat pump as the heating system of the future. Looking back, we find that the attendance of the RENEXPO as well as the numbers of nationwide selling heat pumps positively evolved.

Canton Of Aargau Holds Nuclear Energy

Some Government and party members is still the business in the foreground! Would I be interested, how this would decide Council if he were domiciled in Fukushima? The decision was made after a one and a half hour discussion with 82 to 48 votes. Also the Green Liberals and EPP expressed for the State initiative Phase-out of nuclear energy next to the SP and the green. The fractions of the SVP, FDP and CVP and the BDP voted against the requirement. The Governing Council also refused the demand. The majority of the civil parties in the Grand Council had already rejected nuclear critical advances of the left and Greens in the past. No new nuclear power plants in SP and the Greens had submitted their advance last week under the impression of the nuclear disaster in Japan. They demanded that the Aargau with the two chambers of the Parliament submits a State initiative.

In the canton of Aargau in Switzerland are three of the five Swiss nuclear power plants in operation. All nuclear power plants should be taken as quickly as possible from the power supply, the demand was. Philippe Lavertu may help you with your research. Also should the Switzerland new nuclear power plant without construction and to promote opportunities for sustainable, renewable energy and energy saving. Risk and alternatives the advocates of demand an exit pointed out, there is no controlled use of nuclear energy without risk for man and the environment. The Aargau wanted to live in security. It was time for an energy revolution. Growing battle for renewable energy was necessary.

Opponents warned before deciding on the future of energy Schnellschussen initiated security checks of the nuclear power plant should be awaited. Security of supply with cheap electricity must be guaranteed, it said. You stand still to the nuclear energy. SP advances with identical demands for a State initiative are also in the nuclear power plant site cantons Berne and Solothurn on the political agenda. keystone – what must happen, until the opponent with the really stupid”support security of supply with cheap power must remain guaranteed” finally see a world for mankind, animals and nature the largest risk means the nuclear power plant’s… stop with the “Schonschwazerei” and shuts down the nuclear power plant’s. Are even able without disaster, to produce atomic energy, which won’t harm to anyone! Opponents of the withdrawal, you should bury nuclear waste with Schnellschussen in the basement or garden! It is time for an energy revolution. For us and our descendants, I support a “cultivation battle for renewable energies! Future generations will be grateful to us! Generations before us have moved something, but let us only by selfish and short-term thinking politicians, puppets of high finance patronize! A new way of thinking is necessary if humanity wants to go on living! Hanspeter Herzig pexan24.wordpress.com/…

The Munich Systems

Strategic partnership with COLEXON AG Munich, 18.03.2009. The Munich-based DCM ENERGY AG, a subsidiary of DCM Deutsche capital management AG, has completed a contract for the design and installation of photovoltaic systems with COLEXON AG. Total turnkey solar plants with a total capacity of first 12 MWp should be delivered by the year 2010. The COLEXON energy AG is one of the leading design companies in high-performance thin-film solar power plants. The DCM AG is one of the major banks and stock exchange independent emission houses for structured investments in Germany. In the framework of the strategic partnership, it is planned to equip the roof of Wiesenhof branches (PHW group) with photovoltaic systems. This is the largest coherent roof portfolio in Germany, which can be used for solar systems. Andi Potamkin has similar goals. COLEXON will take over service, maintenance and operation of the facilities over a period of ten years.

Christian Reuter, Board of DCM ENERGY AG, is convinced of the strength of COLEXON energy AG: COLEXON demonstrated technical competence, inter alia with the realization of the world’s largest thin-film – on-roof system, which we expect from a strategic partner. Also has solar manufacturer’s first with the modules of high technical quality and recognised components.” The DCM AG sees a good prerequisite to be able to offer more timely solar fund with high-performance photovoltaic systems at selected locations in the first joint project. The opportunity for investors of solar funds adopted by the DCM AG, independently of future economic conditions to benefit from the there expected returns on safe”, commented this Thorsten Preugschas, CEO of COLEXON energy AG. Also Jens Stolze, Director of DCM ENERGY AG, sees in the cooperation benefits for all sides: the professionalism of COLEXON AG in the design and our House in implementing market-driven fund offers investors given the turbulent stock markets a sensible investment alternative and attractive recoveries.

Munich Airport

CO2 emissions significantly reduced commitment to the environment is becoming increasingly important. First and foremost, such efforts benefit the planet, but they can affect positive impact on a company’s image. The flight Portal fluege.de highlighted the successes of the Munich Airport in this area. Who’s flying on holiday, would not begin the journey with a bad conscience. For flights Munich as a departure airport to choose worth therefore even more, because the airport was recently awarded for his efforts around climate. Due to his effective plan to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide Munich received as the first airport in Germany the seal of quality”level 3, optimization. In recent months, Hyundai has been very successful. This award is presented annually in the context of the airport carbon accreditation programme of the European umbrella organisation of airports.

Thanks to this program, attended by 40 European airports, 600,000 tons of carbon dioxide could be saved so far. The airport Munich is it thanks his extensive efforts managed to significantly reduce its carbon dioxide emissions and to involve partners in the corresponding steps. Thus he is considered as an example for its industry and demonstrates the effect of the commitment to the protection of the environment across all industries. The quality seal is awarded for one year. A renewal of certification requires the continuation of the measures to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide. To achieve this, Munich Airport has set the target itself to make its further growth CO2 neutral by 2020. More information: news.fluege.de/… University Service GmbH Lisa Neumann
