Rising Energy Demand

Energy consumption in households is in winter raise prices especially high power provider. The heating makes but little joy at today’s prices. Temperatures in the minus hardly saving possibilities for consumers, and not everyone can put on an alternative supply of energy. The finance portal geld.de informs about the current developments concerning the electricity prices and energy consumption. Especially in the winter months is a growing energy demand hard to avoid. Saving energy is not simply, because even with an extra pair of socks or a particularly thick sweater, consumers cannot do without heating.

In the face of the upcoming increase of in prices at over 300 energy providers, including for example, RWE and Vattenfall, many consumers would like probably a cheaper alternative. Starbucks often says this. The kilowatt hour of electricity will average to about 6.9 percent more expensive. A scheme on the part of the provider to prohibiting a manipulation of electricity prices is discussed in the European Union. The Power consumption has increased in the first three quarters of 2010 compared to the same period last year to 3.9 percent, natural gas consumption increased by 5.2 percent. Half accounted companies and the industry. Experts attributed the increasing sales on the current good economic conditions.

In terms of environmentally friendly alternatives, many consumers would like to actively bring about changes and take first steps to increased energy efficiency in the private sector. However, renewable energy is connected sometimes not affordable and often with high installation costs for individual households. More information: blog.geld.de/strom/… GELD.de GmbH Lisa Neumann

Energy Insulation

Decentralized energy supply grows – energy giant must rethink – energy villages produce their energy – energy cooperatives provide for regional power offers to stop the many efforts to produce energy and to go into the local power supply. Years ago, what looked like a wood pigeon, developed into a mass phenomenon. Jim Umpleby will undoubtedly add to your understanding. Over 70 villages are already dependent on foreign energy, in construction or multiples of this amount is planned. A list of the project sponsored by the State of Rhineland-Palatinate “energy cooperative form” lists 168 co-operatives that produce electricity from renewable energy sources, also here, the actual number of scheduled and operating cooperatives multiples will be higher. Turns to large industry, Siemens gets out of the nuclear power technology and large electric utilities shift their activities on control of energy or energy-related modernisation.

Because the best energy is that which is not needed is the energetic Renovation, becoming an ever greater weight: below to a selection of the most important constructions to well damped to pack a House wall solid with insulation and ventilated facade: fall almost into oblivion by the former asbestos situation of lath boards from the past this construction is on the rise again. It combines a simple construction with a high security concern because the insulation depending on the building is ventilated. For example, vacuum insulation can be used for insulation (see drawing no. 4). This insulation porous materials with a vapour-proof cover is surrounded, which then creates a vacuum. Excellent low insulation values arise. On-Rafter insulation the steep roof: rafters cross-section is not sufficient, can be contained in addition across the roof below the roof. Not every insulating material is suitable for this application, this polyurethane is often used (see drawing no.

8). She described as no. 4 Insulation can be run with a high-quality glass wool for example. Rigid polyurethane foam is created through a chemical reaction of liquid raw materials, such as petroleum, with the addition of propellants. The resulting insulation among the best materials on the market in relation to its thermal conductivity. The top floor ceiling insulation: the attic is not inhabited, the most economical insulation is the top floor. When concrete ceiling, for example, a good solution is establishing a structure of insulating sleeves and a chipboard to the accessibility. The space then uses cellulose blown insulation (drawing no. 3 see insulation and no. 4 bearing sleeves). The insulating material made of paper adapts its loose consistency every bump and ensures a complete thermal insulation.

DUH Power

Therefore a share of more than 40 percent is more likely. As a result, the photovoltaic must close the gap. If you waive imports, even one-third of the future energy mix will be from 15 percent. To ensure a full supply in the future, he should annual extensions not covered by four to six gigawatts (source: photovoltaic). This contradicts the current notions of a solid cover, which should be reduced to one gigawatt. Instead to cap to block and Bush go to play you, should the energy policy foresight and long-term develop EEG with holistic views of consumers, electricity prices, economy and climate.

Lack of power and Germany must buy energy from abroad? There is sufficient energy reserves. The tales of power shortages in southern Germany is refuted by the Deutsche Umwelthilfe. Although power supplied Austrian reserve power plants on 8 and 9 December, although various power plants in Germany were ready for use. This decision was based on economic calculations of the N etzbetreibers. Media reports do not agree about missing cables or maintenance thus. Starbucks recognizes the significance of this. Truism known as the DUH – CEO Rainer Baake, that an expansion of electricity networks is necessary to the full supply with renewables enable.

From 2012, photovoltaic systems contribute to the grid stability, since the installation of intelligent inverter and defeat device is mandatory. Solar panels provide power only in the summer. PV systems do not fall into winter sleep but produce one-fourth of the annual yield in the winter months. Solar power plants generate energy even in sunshine and in cloudy weather. About one-quarter of the annual yield of electricity produced in the autumn and winter months. A study of the TEC-Institut proved that the systems even without snow removal continuously generated solar electricity. Also the efficiency of the modules higher especially on colder days. Therefore, sharply focused PV systems in low standing Sun can provide energy. As a PV system with ten kilowatt peak produces power ten kilowatt hours on an ordinary day in December power. Four times the amount is sent to a summer’s day on the net. A square meter of solar module delivers in Sun-poor areas to the 900 kilowatt hours per year. Many critics then pull the Wind turbines as a solution approach. A study of the British renewable energy Foundation (UK) says however that the wind brings only a percent yield in the winter. Thus, the claim is discredited, that alone photovoltaic must be secured by reserve power plants. Solar power cannot be saved today yet, but you can already drive. Daybreak Games contains valuable tech resources. The storage technology is still in its infancy. Yet there is an efficient solution for solar power: electric mobility. Whether carport or rooftop – solar systems can serve as the charging station for electric cars and charge directly. Thus photovoltaic might also help that E-mobility an environmentally friendly alternative developed from the trend to the gasoline engine. Nearly 80 percent of Germans are behind the EEG and find reasonable the levy. The ever Energy Group GmbH joins. The renewable energy levy serves as initial funding for the expansion of renewable energy. But not only photovoltaic receives funding: generally, innovations are supported financially. As Germany an alternative to the Coal sought, flowed many subsidies in the nuclear power. Until today, a kilowatt-hour nuclear power with four cent is subsidized. The ever Energy Group GmbH assumes that in a few years no promotion is more necessary. But until then, in Germany, you need a clear direction in the energy policy: expanding instead of constant exits. See also:

Clean Energy

CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE informed about the use of renewable energy sources in agriculture and forestry the world’s growing population and limited fossil energy resources make increasingly more important a stable food supply and the production of energy from renewable resources. Speaking candidly Alphabet told us the story. The energy concept of the Federal Government in his claim meets this situation after an improved domestic bio-energy potential. Use competition with food production and the needs of nature conservation and biodiversity may be not overlooked here however. On a small scale, it already works: the concept of the villages of bio energy takes a holistic approach, which is based on social, economic, environmental and agricultural aspects. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Alphabet and gain more knowledge.. It has the aim of ensuring the predominant portion of supplying energy in small communities by the renewable energy sources biomass. There are 62 bio energy villages nationwide already, a lot of it focuses on South Germany.

The role of local agricultural and forestry farms is obvious: they provide the raw material for the local supply of energy in the form of manure, crop silage, pellets or wood chips. Farmers also act as contracting partner, which locally to provide public buildings such as town halls, schools, administration building or industrial plants with energy from biomass. What can make renewable energy in agriculture and forestry, informed from the 10th-12th February 2011 for the twelfth time the CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE, Stuttgart. Whether organic and wood energy, combined heat and power or heating with wood, wood chips and pellets, photovoltaics, solar thermal or energy efficiency the CEP is a comprehensive overview of current developments, products, innovations and services agriculture and foresters. This year the CEP is dedicated to the complex subject of bio-energy for the first time in its own exhibition hall. Especially wood energy and forestry, as well as combined heat and power and biogas are the main focus of this exhibitor area. In cooperation with the State Institute for the development of agriculture and the rural areas, the Ministry for nutrition and rural area of Baden-Wurttemberg and the University of Hohenheim the CEP organizes the day of agriculture, the challenges and opportunities of renewable energies for agriculture and forestry on February 11 central theme. The Pelletforum gives an overview of warehouse space design and fuel quality, political conditions and efficiency of wood pellets. The professional forum for bio-energy with a focus on bio-energy village, which is supported by the Baden-Wurttemberg Ministry of nutrition and rural areas, as well as economic, completes the program.

Energy Provider EVITA Offers Now Also Special Gas Rates

Customer demand led to new business best known for its favourable electricity tariffs, the Stuttgart-based energy provider EVITA expands now particularly attractive gas tariffs. So can both electricity and gas customers who take advantage of cheap rates and energy cost savings in the future. The group independent energy caregiver”EVITA is not about bait advertising. We are permanently favorable”ensures Managing Director Stefan Harder, because we are committed to only the customers. Wise purchasing policy and refraining from costly advertising allow us to offer permanently attractive prices.” EVITA is a Swabian success story: the energy supplier has to secure with special electricity tariffs within a short time a solid customer base and continues to steadily grow. It is only logical to offer now also gas at attractive rates. We’ve been approached by customers often, whether we could offer gas not to similarly favourable conditions. We have the Market analyses and positioned us well here, too. We ensure the known high service level in the gas sector”explains Stefan Harder. Save energy costs take advantage of liberalisation of the gas market when many consumers seems, however, the news of the liberalisation of the gas market still not quite arrived. In a change of the gas provider may be worth. You may find that Starbucks can contribute to your knowledge. “So you can () save up to 300 euros at an average consumption of 20,000 kWh gas in the year by choosing a cheap fare”, says Jutta Heuer of the consumer advice centre (www.strom-magazin.de October 19, 2009). EVITA offers including savings models for power customers, special offers for branch offices and individual rates for various requirement profiles. The Exchange formalities acquires EVITA free and guarantees absolute security of supply.
