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.

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.

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. The calculated values can by recognized climate protection certificates from a certified reforestation project for CarbonFix standard or part one on energy efficiency and developing renewable Energy of oriented gold standard project be compensated.
