Solar Energy Is Very CLEAN POWER 2009 Important ENERGY On The CEP

The renewable energies Act (EEG) enters into force as of 1 January 2009. The CEP CLEAN ENERGY POWER 2009 is the ideal platform to inform themselves about the effects and the responses of the manufacturers on the changed framework conditions. Not only photovoltaic and solar thermal energy is explored at the fair. Exhibitors are present also in the fields of geothermal, passive house, heat pump, combined heat and power, biomass, Stirling and energy services. In the solar field again well-known exhibitors this year are represented, for example, MHH Solartechnik GmbH, Galaxy energy GmbH, Ecostream Germany GmbH, Solarhybrid AG, solar power GmbH, Thermo Solar AG, Tritec Germany GmbH, and Wurth Solar GmbH & co. KG will present their innovations and products. For the first time, there will be a special show for photovoltaics and solar energy.

The heart will be here the sun canopy. Here, the practical application of various products from the photovoltaic and Solarthermiebereich represented the specialist based on live installations. Short paths, transparency and Synergies: these are the advantages of the special show! In the “solar Forum: under the Sun.” Energy solutions for the House of the future”, will be presented the visitors special lectures on the subject of solar energy. Recently John Stankey sought to clarify these questions. The “solar energy centre Stuttgart” performs in addition moderated tours. In addition to the exhibition focus solar, there are two conferences on the subject of solar. “The International Symposium solar and renewable cooling” offers practical solutions for the solar heating and cooling with renewable energy.

Eleven international experts give insight into technologies, markets, economy and current projects related to the cooling of the future. The event is aimed at engineers, the solar industry, air conditioning and refrigeration companies, public administrations, utilities as well as planners and will take place on January 30 during the CEP. Also held a symposium on the theme “Solar heating systems for large buildings”. You informed about de possibilities of using solar thermal large-scale installations for domestic hot water, space heating and cooling. Solar thermal can make a significant contribution to the reduction of energy consumption, reduce energy costs and save our resources. Bautrager, housing companies, investors, architects, local authorities, energy consultants, planners and specialist are addressed. The meeting will take place on January 29. The exhibition is open from 09 am to 6 pm and Saturdays from 09 to 5 pm Thursday and Friday. The entrance costs 15 EUR Thursday and Friday, reduced 12,-EUR and Saturday 10,-EUR, reduced 7,-EUR.

Cant Carbon Siggi: Morning, Noon Mauscheln

“” Coma: Minister of the environment would be better off at coal lobby Mainz – not welcome “have welcomed members of the citizens initiative carbon free Mainz Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel, today Conference on municipal energy and climate policy at the Federal SGK” in Mainz said. With banners protesting the Rhinegold Hall the failed coal policy of the Minister of environment, which supports the construction of numerous coal-fired power stations in Germany. “” Was on the banners read: “Stop the coal roped” and coal Siggi: morning can’t, at noon mauscheln “Sigmar Gabriel has clearly received the wrong job in the Cabinet lineup” coma-Chairman, Christof, explains van the Bruck. That an Environment Minister stepped up the construction of coal-fired plants, you can hardly imagine before the official introduction of Gabriel.”only speaks, Gabriel at a party event of climate protection and energy policy as a job engine to visit the largest Rhineland-Palatinate climate killer in PES at noon with the KMW” criticized Van den Bruck, who didn’t expect that Gabriel finally recognizes his misaligned coal policy and advises the KMW to the much-needed departure from their coal-fired power plans. But contradictions are coal Siggi”, as the Environment Minister in climate protection circles now no stranger called. Until he travelled to Greenland with Merkel and the melting of the polar ice cap, complains cares about polar bear Knut and finds big words at climate conferences, but when it comes to concrete policy, he supported the construction of many new coal-fired plants, which will cement the emission of many million tons of CO2 for decades to come”, van den criticized Bruck. While the Minister expected in in the fall of 2008, in a comprehensive study, which was created in the own Ministry, exactly, that the German climate protection goals even with the simultaneous switching of 28,000 MW old fossil power plants were no longer accessible in the construction of more than 9,000 MW of new coal-fired power plants (see point No.

4 of the summary of the study 2008′) download/summary…). “Stupid only that already over 10,000 MW coal-fired plants under construction are”, so van den Bruck. But instead of finally reconsider their own climate-damaging policy, Gabriel ignored the study consistently and operates on the expansion of coal.” It is questionable whether Gabriel of the KMW report on the latest developments in Berlin. There the energy giant Vattenfall announced yesterday, to build two modern gas power stations, as well as several biomass power plants instead of the originally planned coal-fired power. A good example of the KMW should follow as quickly as possible. For which post-political job tries to establish coal Siggi? EON, RWE or just KMW?”asks van den Bruck provocative. The question has a serious background: Gabriel is not the first prominent Social Democrat, who applies his Government work for a well-financed energy-sector job: ex – economy Minister Clement is today RWE Board (but not more Social Democrat), ex – Minister of economy Muller was RAG head (Germany of largest coal conveyors), his ex – Secretary of State company CEO (Kohekraftwerksbetreiber) and even former Chancellor Schroder has got a jobs at Gazprom.

Study confirms ecological cocoa-growing concept of CacaoInvest a high yield of cocoa and species not mutually exclusive. 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 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. 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.
