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. 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. 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. Clayton Morris can provide more clarity in the matter.

Mettler Power

Many people look at renewable energy sources as the future of our modern life. Electricity has become something self-evident for us all in the household as to work. The invention of electricity was a major step, which was especially industrial importance and is. Unfortunately, our growing need for energy has impact on our climate. For years, little consideration was taken on this aspect. In return, humanity now receives the receipt. Modern companies now very much emphasis on a responsible use of resources and environmentally friendly industrial equipment. There is also a provider of industrial electricity, providing also for this area of green electricity.

The use of alternative energy production possibilities moves more and more into the foreground. There are proposals and variations many, whether it be power generation by wind or water power or the power of the Sun. Unfortunately, solar power plants have the disadvantage that they have a large footprint. Still have prospects for the future, since the potential photovoltaic panels is not long since exhausted. Sunlight into electricity to convert noise and odor. The electricity generation by wind turbines comes from without the emergence of greenhouse gases. Opponents complain about the impact on the landscape and can not operate without noise.

People did early advantage the power of water for themselves. To do this, certain natural circumstances and a deliberate approach are required. Although there are good arguments for the exit from nuclear power generation, there are still opponents who want to delay this step. In spite of all dangers that climate change brings, for many business customers, is still a cheaper price by the providers for commercial power is crucial. In the future yet alternative models will increase more and more important.

Electricity Feed-in Tariff And Huhnertstall

lawyer immediately informed about new jurisprudence of feed-in tariffs for electricity from “exclusively or on a building installed” photovoltaic panels the increased electricity feed-in tariff to the renewable energies Act is there only if the photovoltaic systems on or in a building are attached. These include but not such constructions, whose supporting structure that is designed to carry solar modules, but serve as a shelter for chickens. The construction related by the applicant served exclusively as a structure for the solar modules and should give the impression that it was contactor huts for the love chickens. The Federal Supreme Court has joined in this opinion. Buildings within the meaning of the renewable energy law are only those who are able to carry their own structural the solar plants on.

The building must be as a carrying framework the main thing of the plant to be on it or it depends on its stock. Office Tip: If a photovoltaic system attach for the increased feed-in tariff will, make sure beforehand whether the building meets the requirements of this law. In case of doubt you must consult. You should document in writing the advice. Federal Court ruling of October 29, 2008 VIII ZR 313/07

Summa Summarum

This was not consistently noted as applicable basic premise retroactivity, even from Germany, so that Italy, a high degree of reliability must be identified. Italy as a whole investors must not like, but the aspects of solar grants, together with the external factors (high sun exposure, number of hours of sunshine, strong medium-sized solar industry), make Italy more than interesting as a location for a solar investment. For more information see HBO Max. Italian energy policy in Italy has been introduced only in 2005 the Conto Energia, which is equivalent to the German EEG. Other countries, such as Germany, Spain and the United States were there with a system of feed-in tariff solar power faster. In the new conto energia IV will distinguish between small and large solar plants: small installations are rooftop installations up to 1 MW, which are subject to the register duty, all systems on public buildings and Land and all other facilities up to 200 kW. These are not capped.

All other systems are considered large plants, and for this a cap was introduced for the June 2011 until the end of 2012. Large plants must also be entered register (GSE, the authority of the economic and Finance Ministry, which controlled funding and supervision), to get the feed-in tariff. Summa Summarum can on the Italian solar market due to the reduced remuneration for large open area systems by focusing on small”roof installations up to 1 MW are assumed. This policy is entirely in keeping with the environment, because already existing roof surfaces together with mains terminals are used and misused no arable land. These are hard facts to the debt of Italy at first glance outlandishly. Italy’s public debt is less than 120% of GDP, and will remain there in the next few years. Revenues from primary sources, approximately 730 billion euro are Bella Italia to the Available, will broaden to this base about 800 billion euros by 2014″.

Success Criteria

“Psychologist Felicitas Heyne Polarstern Munich, reveals the success criteria of good deeds, practice 22.05.2012 do good good”, the psychologist Felicitas Heyne white. More and more German feel. It is important to take responsibility and to engage them. When major issues of our time such as environmental and climate protection, or social justice, they believe in the commitment of each individual. * According to a survey of by market research company FORSA wants to act sustainably the majority especially in everyday life, whether while shopping or at the energy consumption. * to make the goodwill and good deeds, actions must meet the following four criteria(: 1) fast: people today have a time problem “, says Felicitas Heyne. Every day many details, charms, requirements on each flow, much more than even in the generation of our grandfathers.

And that makes it harder to bring everything under one hat. The less it us therefore time costs, to do something good, all the more the implementation easier for us.” (2) simple: I want to do something good, but it must fit to me. And, it has to fit into my everyday life. Extra paths, constraints, or even a waiver during previous action complicate a good deed or even prevent them. Good deeds must integrate into everyday life. This reduces the hurdles, because not yet another point added on anyway already mostly full time and activity agenda”, explained Felicitas Heyne. “(3) fair: the balance between the use and benefits must be perceived as just”, Felicitas Heyne says. A fair distribution of burdens, costs and effort motivated for a good deed if also the benefits in a balanced relationship to.

“(4) visible: I want to know what I meant with my good deed”, explains Felicitas Heyne. This is important not only for the external recognition, but also for their own satisfaction. An action has a speedy end without getting feedback on it or to see the success, because the positive “Gain” is missing.

The Fairtrade

In addition to the global activities prepared comazo also the local site Germany on a social and sustainable future before. Therefore, a heat recovery system was now installed at the headquarters in Albstadt. “Appendix image 1: comazo employees as photo models, we make favorite linen we wear favorite underwear”. The saved model budget goes to a good purpose. Figure 2: Dr. Christoph Maier at the Fairtrade cotton organic user comazo that 1884 family-owned company comazo has its headquarters in Albstadt and offices in Croatia, Russia and Romania.

Worldwide, the company has 600 employees, of which 170 in Germany. comazo operates 27 own manufacturer sales. Reseller contact directly the manufacturer in Albstadt. The production is in-house as a full stage with knitting, equipment, to tailoring, sewing, packaging and shipping. The production volume is approximately 55,000 garments per day.

The Executive Board is subject to Dr. Christoph Maier and Michael Nadele. Since early 2009 is comazo as first German lingerie company fair trade ‘ certified and may as a manufacturer of laundry ” distribute with the quality seal known from the food area for Fairtrade cotton. The first products from fair trade cotton come now with the collection comazo earth”in Germany on the market. Comazo applies his raw materials for the new underwear line, for example, from a Fairtrade organic cotton project in the Indian Mahima. Total this cooperative farmers have joined in 1950, based on biodynamic cultivation. The Fairtrade premiums in recent years built a school for about 500 students, which is open to all children of the region. In addition, a school bus was organized with the funds, which picks up children from remote areas to the classroom and brings it home.

Photovoltaic Systems

What possibilities there are for the financing of photovoltaic systems. So-called solar energy is a topic on which you hardly once again will pass within the media world, today not only because of the agreed withdrawal from nuclear energy, but also many private individuals and real estate owners have found an interest in this form of energy generation. Owning your own photovoltaic systems and to use them is not only a special blessing for the environment and nature conservation, but also just a financially regulates part. But not only their own electricity demand with solar energy can use, but with the supply of electricity to much generated earn some money, although alone has this form of refinancing by photovoltaic systems alone are not decisive for the popularity. In house construction or a renovation, but is simple and poignant even once that the emerging cost of the needed solar modules as well as their transport services and equipment Press which can often quickly result in a beautiful and quite decent high five-figure sum together. Meanwhile saved not only on its own can be but for the interested once in the financing of photovoltaic systems rely, but the State also supports the builders through numerous subsidies and funds. Just financial support in the form of subsidies for the purchase of various solar modules get who, for example, now once installed a powerful solar system on his roof or but in any other field, is this. Even if this and this now not the complete due amount is replaced and grants can be also now the reconstruction or the construction of a photovoltaic plant in attack without large financial capital, because even State-run and supervised banks offer special credit with particularly low used interest rates once this. That this can be used for the financing of photovoltaic systems on Government help and support the reason that are once again achieved and over longer periods of time to ensure this investment and this industry of the future.

Energiesparmeister 2011: Ten Winning Schools Now Compete For Gold

Ten best school in Germany from Berlin projects climate protection campaign, April 4, 2011. Nationwide, more than 10,000 students demonstrate how active climate protection works. They agreed with their projects for competition of Energiesparmeister 2011 and the special prize of measurable results”advertised. The Energiesparmeister is initiated by the Ministry for environment and climate seeks protection of the campaign”. The jury chose the ten best projects of in Germany over 160 entries now. The winning projects in the Energiesparmeister 2011 will receive 5,000 euros, a video camera including editing software, as well as a project sponsorship with renowned actors from business and society.

“A decision is still pending: from 4th to 18th April the online vote for the Energiesparmeister takes gold on” instead. Who voted for its favorite, has the chance to win a great many Energiesparpreisen. Students demonstrate commitment outside the school the projects from all over Germany to convince through much dedication and creativity. So the young climate protectionists plays write or compose rap songs, to draw attention to climate change, raise money as climate ambassadors to support reforestation projects or inform and motivate their classmates to the collective energy savings with special promotions. Compared to the past competitions, held more and more climate protection projects outside of school. So, students want to gain even more people for climate protection.

Targeted are street interviews conducted, performed theatre pieces in shopping arcades or motivated parents households to save energy. The students involved outside the school, only shows their will is how big to make a difference. “And the projects show: this bet pays off and delivers concrete results”, says jury member Johnny strange, singer of the Band Culcha candela. At the special price of measurable success”it was for the students to prove with the help of a special energy savings account savings achievements at the school. The ten Energiesparmeister 2011″these ten winners are the Internet voting for the Energiesparmeister gold”: Edith-Stein-Schule from 88212 Ravensburg, Baden-Wurttemberg (vocational school) VS Ottobeuren from 87724 Ottobeuren, Bavaria (primary school).
