In consequence of the increasing competition in the gas market, providers with price guarantees are often even much cheaper than the local basic utilities. According to our Competition analysis consumer in the 50 largest cities in Germany can save an average 109 euros annually compared to the cheapest rate of local basic utility, if you opt for an offer with a price guarantee”, so Bohg. Table in xls: savings in gas in the 50 largest cities in Germany in some regions are even much higher the price differences. So, switching to a provider with a one-year price guarantee in Stuttgart, Leipzig, Wuppertal, Chemnitz and Ludwigshafen am Rhein even with more than 280 euro savings will be rewarded. Consumers, who now in the longer term to secure favourable summer prices, are protected during change of provider generally by the legislature”, adds Bohg. Since the new provider takes over all the formalities relating to the termination and conversion, the choice of a new supplier can be achieved already with little time spent.” Through consumer portals such as toptarif.de (www.toptarif.de/ gas) or free Service hotlines as 0800 10 30-499 can consumers quickly and easily about alternatives in their region informed and free switch to a cheaper gas provider. toptarif.de is the independent consumer portal of the Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck, for all common tariffs in Germany.

Trends and developments can be but know that a few Years in the current market place have found.” In addition to new providers while pushing more and more companies in the electricity sector in the gas market. Large power discounters such as Nuon, eprimo or TelDFax, which in 2008 had offered gas products, have significantly increased their delivery areas in recent months. Similar also applies to numerous regional utilities and municipal utilities that offer gas well outside their actual reason supply. Total benefit from simplified border and entry conditions in the gas distribution companies. So, for example, the number of market areas (zones) 2009 dropped from 12 to 6. In addition, that the gas market, with views of the structure of the competition, offers new providers currently more opportunities to gain market share as the electricity market where the competition is about three times as high. Through consumer portals like toptarif.de (www.toptarif.de/ gas) or free service hotline 0800-10 to 30-499 consumers quickly and easily find out about alternatives in their region and free one cheaper gas provider change.

The Northern right whales in the North Pacific (Eubalaena glacialis) are a distinct species. The Northern right whales in the North Pacific (Eubalaena glacialis) are a distinct species. A team of researchers from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) from New York under the direction of Dr. Howard Rosenbaum came seven years ago by gene analysis on the track. Until then, it was assumed that the population of the Nordkaper also mentioned species is divided in two isolated groups in the Pacific and North Atlantic. Rosenbaum and colleagues developed a sophisticated technique that allowed them to isolate genetic material that killed more than a hundred years ago from the agreed by whales.
In addition, they analyzed skin samples from living right whales and could compare to the genetic material of 380 individuals of the rare marine mammals and redefine their relationship. Contact information is here: PayPal. In addition to occurring only in the Atlantic Northern right whale and the still frequent southern right whale (Eubalaena australis), is a third type added: the North Pacific right whale. Genetically, the new way is even close with the Southern Right whales as related to their namesakes from the North. There is very little current information about North Pacific right whales, in addition to occasional sightings we know only that they were decimated by commercial whaling”, says Howard Rosenbaum. We suspect that there are still several hundred individuals of them for fast appropriate safeguards on the way should be brought”. Rosenbaums gene analyses fall but also the hope for the survival of suddenly their Pacific kind of deprived Atlantic North right whale which. Definitely less than 300 copies exist of them thus.
Scientists had calculated that they will die out in a such small numbers within the 191 years. Causes are the small size of the population, the slow rate of reproduction and losses through collisions with ships and drowning in fishing nets. Marine scientists also suspect that the El Nino-,. La Nina weather phenomenon have upset the deep currents of the oceans and also the food and especially the dating is difficult so the whales. “Up to 17 metres wide are in the English-speaking world as right whales, right whales” known, because they at times of commercial whaling just the right “prey were. They swim very slowly, are driving the Harpunierung long on the surface and provided good yields of trans and whalebone (agreed). Right whales are the first whales, which were hunted by humans. Probably began in the 10th century before the coast of Japan and middle of the 11th century in the Bay of Biscay. At the beginning of the industrial hunting stocks have been decimated greatly, in the 19th century alone it should have been more than 100,000 killed animals. Since 1935, they are worldwide fully protected at least from the harpoons of the whalers, which doesn’t have much use at least the two types of Northern right whales.
Study confirms a high yield of cocoa and species not mutually sustainable cocoa farming concept by CacaoInvest. This strongly confirms a study by agricultural ecologist of at Gottingen of University. The in the journal of proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States”published research evidence that agroforestry to the cocoa – like the product CacaoInvest (www.CacaoInvest.de) of the Bonn forest investment provider ForestFinance – can exhibit a very high biodiversity. In agroforestry systems grow cocoa trees with and under shade trees, like banana trees, and pigeon peas… Researchers 20 tree species, as well as 23 bird and 17 species of butterflies found on the investigated cocoa crops. Xoom has similar goals.
The amount of the yield of cocoa per year but played no role for the number of species. A high diversity of species and also high cocoa income not mutually accordingly, if the cocoa area – such as at ForestFinance – are managed sustainably. That not only our forests, but also our Agroforste exhibit a high biodiversity, we know from experience. Such sloths and Anteaters in our cocoa plantations are not uncommon. We are pleased that the study confirms us in our sustainable Agroforstmanagement”, so ForestFinance – Managing Director Harry Assenmacher. Cocoa in agroforestry systems or monocultures: cocoa farming is done almost exclusively in tropical areas up to about 20 degrees of North and South latitude. Only in this area, the climate is sufficiently consistently humid for the cocoa.
Although the cocoa tree originally from Latin America, are today more than 90 percent of the world’s traded cocoa beans of the cocoa farming in Asia and Africa. There is almost without exception in monocultures in West Africa cocoa farming largely through the use of child labour. The cocoa – major growing countries are Ivory Coast and Ghana, which reach over 50% of world annual production. Child labour, unprotected use of pesticides, and slave-like working conditions are widespread there.

North German businesses develop action plan for energy saving of Spiegel Verlag, the Jungheinrich AG, Pfannenberg and more medium-sized companies in Northern Germany are great. By 2014, they want to reduce their energy consumption significantly, quite in the sense of the environmental year in Hamburg. “It supports the Frankfurt energy professional Watt Germany and successfully launched the first Watt EffizienzAllianz North under the motto energy use rather than wasting” at the Dorint Hotel Hamburg Eppendorf. Getting to know the company, the setting of common objectives, as well as the vote of the next steps were at the center of the opening ceremony. It is the age of energy and with the energy revolution we is the question of how go in the future with energy, have moved into the focus of politics, business and population”, welcomed Otto Klatte, CEO of watt Germany GmbH, participants and guests. With the Watt EffizienzAllianz we encourage renewable thinking and want to connect with an efficient, cost-conscious and sustainable behavior for more responsibility, more partnership and greater success of medium-sized companies.” Special guest of the kick-off event was Michael West Hagmann, Chairman of the Hamburg-based industry association (ivh) and Director of Siemens region North.
In addition to the rapidly growing energy hunger in Asia, he spoke of the specific challenges facing the German economy: by 2020 the primary energy consumption in Germany should be reduced by 20 percent. The balance between security of supply, efficiency and environmental sustainability must be respected but at the same time. This is an ambitious goal, considering the many questions that we on the issues of energy efficiency and mix still stand. To achieve this goal, it needed Lighthouse projects such as the Watts EffizienzAllianz. Because she has role for business, politics, and population.” Target Watts EffizienzAllianz North is to optimize the energy efficiency of the participating companies without sacrificing performance for more competitiveness as a learning community and one common, binding action plan for this period.
The participants are heart and motor of EffizienzAllianz: benefited from their energy, their cross-industry experience and their innovative ideas specifically each individual participant. Watt Germany creates the constructive and creative framework for this platform, accompanied the company over the next three years with adequate expertise, regular evaluation and intensive advice. Three or four events of watt EffizienzAllianz North per year are planned. The next meeting will take place on February 29, 2012 at the PAV GmbH in Schierensee directly in the participating companies. More information about the Watts EffizienzAllianz see under: de/MainNav/Mittelstand/Effizienzallianz/Seiten/default.aspx about Watt Germany Watt Germany GmbH, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, was founded in 1998 as one of the first new power suppliers in the German’s liberalised electricity market and since then has become one of the most important energy providers for enterprise customers developed. Chain stores, as well as medium-sized enterprises are key target group for the individual energy solutions. 2010 Watt total was 2.337.000.000 kWh to about 23,000 delivery locations. With revenues of EUR 331 million, Watts has currently 125 employees.
Solar energy remains a very profitable investment despite reduction in the feed-in tariff in 2012. The events don’t rush in the last quarter from year to year. At the end of the month of October, the Federal Network Agency for next year makes public the feed-in tariff. Many try to take its solar plant always has in mind the upcoming reduction until the end of 2011. In sum, the compensation to 15% will decrease. However, is an investment in electricity produced by solar energy very profitable, also after the reduction because even a lucrative profit guarantee lower prices for solar modules and system prices for the year 2012.
This makes it as a prospect in any case by a competent specialist company counsel to great sense to leave. Important than ever are thus profound technical skills in the planning of the solar system and correct calculation of profitability. The built serves as a prerequisite for the Einspeisevergutungs calculation for solar power Performance of the period October 2010 to September 2011. properly reduces the feed-in tariff every year by 9%; If over 3.5 gigawatts of solar power systems performance have been installed, the feeding tariff for each further gigawatt 3% will be reduced. This means that solar systems operators who use their solar system from January 1 in operation, get a sum of money from 17,94 to 24,43 cents depending on the location and the size of the plant for each kilowatt hour on green electricity injected into the power grid. These tariffs are valid from January 1, 2012: for the power supply of rooftop installations in cents each: up to a current amount of 30 kWp kWp 24,43 at a flow rate of 30-100 23,23 at a flow rate of 100-1000 kWp 21,98 for self-consumption in cents each: up to an amount of electricity by 30% up to 30 kWp kWp 8.05 on a flow rate of 30% up to 30 12,43 until to a flow rate of 30%, 30-100 kWp 6,85 about a flow rate of 30% 30-100 kWp 11.23 to to a flow rate of 30% 100-500 kWp 5.60 on a flow rate of 30% 100-500 kWp discussions 9.98 notwithstanding all politically guided, can by no means away be debated one: the solar industry constantly heading for competitiveness and very solid fulfil its promise to produce always cheaper green electricity.

Project the project climate detectives honored for environmental education and environmental protection in schools”of the environmental Office Nord e.V. is aimed at teachers, school boards, teachers and parents. Schools therefore at an early stage with environmental education begin to be, and for that you can request interesting information material on the home page. Goal is to make climate change the pupils and students and to teach them what they can do about it. The children are trained in various areas: energy and climate protection, mobility and transport, nutrition and much more.
Thus can the children appear, that even the small man can go a long way, to protect the climate. Basically, all schools can participate in this project, which would promote climate protection at their institution. The initiators of the project provide detailed materials for teachers, with which to design the teaching and playful small climate detectives”can be formed. Behind the climate-hotels Germany connect hosts, ecologically and economically have optimized their CO2 emissions for example due to consistent energy saving, and have committed themselves to further climate protection measures. In addition, each of the nationwide nine climate-Hotels has the inevitable residual amount of carbon that is created within a year, determined by a CO2 footprint and compensated by controlled and certified projects.
Thus, climate hotels offer their guests a climate-neutral stay without having to give up anything as a guest. Viabono has developed in cooperation with CO2OL, an experienced consulting and service agency for operational climate protection, to a CO2 Calculator for the hospitality industry. Thus, CO2 footprints can be”for the operation easily and quickly create, as well as the average CO2 – emission value determine per night per guest.
