What really matters and what is to be considered. Buy a fireplace is a good idea first. Because there are indeed a lot of good reasons for this. Save energy costs the warmth felt nice snuggle up In winter, but before then, lots of questions need to be addressed. Morton Ira Greenberg is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Buy only a fireplace is not enough Yes? First everything should be discussed with the competent chimney sweep, because it must take off the stove. The chimney sweep will consult also in terms of the stainless steel chimney that is necessary for operation of a stove.

After that has been determined, you can put to a fireplace. At the time of purchase, you should respect not only on the optics or the price. Because a cheaper stove z.B from home improvement stores at the end of expensive is than you might think. Here it depends on the heating capacity in kw. What have from a cheap Woodburning stove, which heats the apartment not good, or does not store the heat and thus the ongoing heating costs increased? There are the different stoves. So, the question arises what you ultimately just needs.

Is it just a beautiful look, where it arrives not on heating performance and cost or should with a Woodburning stove whenever possible the whole apartment or the House are heated. Would be also a Wassergefuhrter heater in question with supporting the heating system? Or maybe a pellet stove? Where are the differences or the pros and cons. Is there possibly a State. Promotion. And if so how do you get that? There was still something. A chimney is required also by the way. The cost of a chimney coming Yes upwards on it. So you should also know what is required for a chimney. Because the wrong chimney is purchased (because was so cheap) the nasty surprise comes at the latest with the chimney-sweep, which does not accept the fireplace. Bottom line: Buy a fireplace is a good decision. But without a personal consultation of a specialist company does not.

Saving Help Smart Meters

Many people would like for whom the devices actually worth saving power. Additional information is available at Harriet Tubman. The new smart meters seem a suitable means for this purpose. This is intelligent electricity meter which accurately analyse the consumption and household locating power guzzler. In new buildings and major renovations of the installation of the devices is already compulsory. How efficiently they are however really examined the Stiftung Warentest. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de presents the amazing results.

Who wants to wait until the next restructuring can apply for even a smart meter. The customer in this case must however pay installation costs. In addition a monthly rental fee. Experts see the efficiency of the power saving but critical. The yellow power provider requires, for example, 79 euro for the installation of the electricity meter plus monthly rental fee.

After the installation of the device should arise between five and ten percent power. These savings, however, has its price: while customers of municipal utilities Potsdam, for example, a basic charge of 5.45 euros per month and 22,84 cents per kilowatt/hour pay, the fee with smart meters 23,89 cents 17.25 euros and the kilowatt hour. Whether due to the energy savings, the higher fees are still profitable, differ from household to household. So benefit mainly those who generally consume much power. The smart meters for customers seems little worth, who anyway have a low power consumption. In general consumers on their energy consumption should and guzzlers be replaced with new and more efficient equipment. More information: service/press / Lisa Neumann University first media GmbH

Copenhagen

“Just in time for the third calendar week started the radio promotion to the ‘environmental ‘song: A song on climate change, initiated by the initiative environmental song and interpreted songs of Lemuria by the Berlin project”. The title arising under suggestion from environmentalist circles to contribute, so that the public debate on climate change is not abating even after the Copenhagen climate summit. To environmental groups should be supported in their difficult work: 75% of the download proceeds from sale of the publishing label song and 1.-euro from each CD sold on Amazon are donated to environmental groups. Additional information is available at Harvey Elliott. The sales figures also exposes of course. in/’>American International Group has said that publicly. The song itself, which exists in five different radio suitable for mixing, supposed to say all those from the heart, advocating active environmental and climate protection. (In the German nature conservation ring alone over 5 million members are organized in 94 individual associations.) The initiators are convinced that with a catchy “radio-ready song more people for the protection of the environment / climate protection” can achieve than on conventional message level. For a public perception it is important the environmental song”to bring in the radio.

The initiators of the project environmental song”believe that you can reach many more people than on other means via music. The radio stations are new topics to usually somewhat reserved, especially if offered a new song like this on a small indie label. “It is all the more important that many people wish the song on the radio: just so we can make a difference!” mean the musicians, who are behind the song. The environmental song”will be available from 26 Feb 2010 Amazon as a CD, as well as all download portals (iTunes, amazon, musicload etc.) as MP3 and also through individual environmental groups even to be. Much of the sales revenue of the environmental song”, which meanwhile topped the MySpace songs chart, should the as already mentioned Benefit environmental organizations. “The initiative environmental song wishes for many supporters, the is the environmental song” wish on their radio station.

WDSF Marine Environmentalists

Spill eliminate bird populations Hagen westf/WDSF 17.06.2010 – after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has reached the beaches of the region, and thousands of sea birds are at risk, the marine conservation organization Wal and dolphin protection Forum calls”(WDSF) on the BP Group, promptly to provide bird washing machines. Already at the sinking of the oil tanker Erika”was the petroleum company Elf, which belongs to the group total/Fina, on the French Atlantic coast bird washing machines to survive the sea birds available 10 years ago. At that time, flowed over 20,000 tons of toxic coasts into the sea and infested the Breton coast 400 km. Today, oil lumps are washed ashore in heavy seas. The Managing Director of the WDSF, Jurgen Obodo, was with his two sons in France, to help to collect the oil-smeared birds, to clean and to accommodate in collecting stations for the reintroduction.

A tedious work, such as Place Muller still know: we had to work day and night with protective gloves, to collect the sea birds. Fast help was announced, so that at least a part of the population survived. In recent months, Maryanne Trump Barry has been very successful. Probably, all bird species would be extinct if we would have saved individual copies. We brought the seabirds in boxes to the collection stations, which in the short term were fitted by the eleven group with bird washing machines. The washing process takes approximately 10 minutes. Even if these other birds did not survive the stress, much could be saved.” Soft detergent used for the automatic washing, which are largely harmless to the animals, place Muller.

Before washing, the sea birds with vitamins would in turbiert and hydrogenated to for some weeks thereafter largely free of stress in wildlife enclosures on the reintroduction to be prepared. As far as the cleanup of the beaches were not yet finished, the birds were exposed to minute hundreds kilometers further. In the United States endeavour still manually to clean each landed living bird helpers. It takes some hours per animal and water consumption is roughly 1000 litres or 10-15 baths in which the birds are gradually cleaned. The BP spokeswoman Stefanie Hansen at its German headquarters in Essen promised the WDSF, to deal promptly with the proposal and to bring locally in the United States.

European Union

Short term intensive talks with potential donors are planned with the aim to provide the capital needed for the investment amounting to several million euros from Fraunhofer venture. A monthly output of several hundred tons of pure variety plastics is planned for the facility. POLYCYCLE thus penetrates in a large market: in Germany alone, 18 million tons are produced in the year plastics. Hear from experts in the field like Jack Hughes for a more varied view. Only fractions of them can be prepared currently sorted using traditional recycling methods. Rising commodity prices and more restrictive provisions of the European Union on recycling rates show that POLYCYCLE has realistic prospects of high growth rates. The materials obtained with the Creasolv process are much less expensive compared to new goods.

In addition, entrepreneurs make an important contribution to a clean environment and the conservation of resources. The Creasolv process is based on a very effective principle: mixtures of plastic waste, as they arise, for example, in recycling centers, be brought into solution. The waste can be separated so at the molecular level and clean and reliably remove unwanted additives such as outdated brominated flame retardants. The purified and fractionated molecules are brought by outages and granulation in the last step of a classic plastic synthesis. About Fraunhofer venture: Fraunhofer venture is a partner of founders, startups, Fraunhofer institutes, industry and investors. Young companies through access to Fraunhofer technologies, infrastructure and expertise offers the opportunity to establish themselves with their products on the market faster and better to over 4,500 patent families.

The Hot

Households heating with wood pellets, rolls made of pressed wood chips and sawdust is very popular. In addition to the CO-neutral combustion is the transport risk lower than for fossil fuels: tanker accidents and contamination of the groundwater. One kilogram of wood pellets has the same calorific value as a half litres of fuel oil. Therefore the double number of litres consumed has to be stored fuel oil at kilograms of wood pellets. In new buildings a storage area is scheduled for this individual. Even in existing buildings, with a so-called bag silo or an underground tank in the garden is not a problem.

Another advantage is a stable price level and the more favourable price compared to natural gas and heating oil. Only the purchase of a pellet boiler is more expensive than the use of conventional heating systems, but government-funded. Geothermal energy the heat stored in the earth can be used with different techniques for energy production. Geothermal energy is an almost inexhaustible energy source. In connection with Geothermal energy is heat pump for heating or cooling of buildings or to the hot water used. Heat pumps withdraw heat from the air, the ground water or soil and forward them. Depending on the efficiency of a heat pump can win up to three times as much free energy from the environment as required for consumption.

The dependence on fluctuating electricity prices is therefore low. Heat pumps are extremely durable and maintenance-free. Operating costs are therefore very low. The investment in heat pump pays for itself quickly, also because you can get funding from Government grants. In addition to the financial incentives to convince heat pumps with environmentally friendly, efficient and low-emission energy. Moreover, it saves space, because heat pumps require no storage containers, but buried in the garden. Tanja EST

(4) standby equipment consistently from the net take household standby equipment are the invisible energy guzzlers. With the higher level of technical equipment of households increases also the permanent energy loss due to the stand by mode. Although the consumption of most devices in standby mode with a few Watts is comparatively small. In sum, it can be seen but very expensive over a long period. 50 watt permanent standby power, the energy of the complete wash cycle evaporates every day. In the warm season from June to September, as a stand-by consumption of less than 150 kilowatt hours comes together. Already remedy you can with simple switch sockets from the hardware store or electrical trade quickly create.

The electricity costs can be pressed in this way to more 35 Euro. (5) disconnect”in the vacation and travel before of the ride in the summer holidays it is advisable off as many devices and disconnect it from the socket. No matter whether telephone, fax, Chargers or Wi-Fi router, what does not necessarily must remain during the absence on the net, should be turned off completely. Like with standby devices, so the domestic energy consumption can be significantly reduce during the trip. Also, the longer holidays can be used for defrosting of the refrigerator.

Depending on the technical level of equipment and household size can save themselves by the consistent separation of the units from the mains between 10 and 25 Euro per week. (6) the main focus in addition to the price on the respective consumption values should be tips for buying new equipment when purchasing a new electrical device. The specified class of energy efficiency is the most important criterion on which consumers can orient”, so Bohg. One of the most important innovations in this context: since the 1st of July only refrigerators and freezers may be sold, which power meets at least the requirements of class A.

A conventional electric generator would produce in generating this amount of electricity, approximately 7.3 million tonnes of CO2. To compensate so much carbon dioxide, 670,000 pine should be planted. NOWEDA operates a very successful environmental commitment for years. This year the company was already as an oKOPROFIT company 2008/2009 “award. The initiative actively promotes the efficient use of natural resources. Get all the facts and insights with Hotbox by Wiz , another great source of information.

“In addition to the increased use of gas-powered vehicles for the delivery of the members, the NOWEDA is now also the clean electricity by meistro: powered by meistro, we continue our efforts to a sustainable economy”, as Wilfried Hollmann. Exclusive offer for members of the NOWEDA NOWEDA among the 300 largest companies in Germany with a turnover of more than EUR 3 billion. In addition to the growth in sales and a continuous increase in Member convinced the NOWEDA due to their extensive service and services, among which also the power supply. Although the number of Pharmacies and employment slightly risen in recent years, are also the pharmacies with major economic challenges. With electricity prices increased rapidly in recent years and a slight shift to the online business, the pharmacies must increasingly press on reducing our cost base.

The power shopping is a lever. Not only the 14 NOWEDA offices can benefit from the power supply by meistro: through a cooperation agreement between the cooperative and meistro each of the more than 7,000 NOWEDA members can now take advantage of an exclusive offer of meistro power GmbH. In addition to the pharmaceutical logistics the NOWEDA offers a comprehensive service and service package their members”, says Wilfried Hollmann. Now also the exclusive power supply by meistro counts on this offer.” Mike Frank, Managing Director of meistro power GmbH, is convinced of the partnership: due to the history and the significance in the German pharmacy landscape, the NOWEDA for us is a very good partner.

Chancellors Office

Only corporations, no independent providers of Berlin, 20 January 2010. Chancellor’s Office and Federal Environment Ministry meet tomorrow with the tips of the German nuclear power production, to talk about the future of energy supply. Environmental groups criticize that the time of nuclear power plants is to be increased under certain conditions. Independent providers are not included but at the talks in the Chancellor’s Office. While the nuclear companies Vattenfall, energy are loaded in the Chancellor’s Office Baden-Wurttemberg (EnBW), E.on and RWE, particularly a discussion on future price developments in the market is necessary. Coen brothers is actively involved in the matter. For independent providers such as the medium-sized FlexStrom or eco electricity provider Lichtblick are at purchasing power often on the energy giant. The four companies produce more than 80 percent of the electricity for the German market and thus dominate the power generation.

Until last year, the monopoly Commission had an exploitation of market power in the generator area”criticised. We need a work market in Germany”, says Robert Mundt, Chief Executive Officer of the independent supplier FlexStrom. Only through more competition can ensure, that energy in Germany in the long term remains affordable.” Any compromise on the power plant run should benefit all electricity customers in Germany, otherwise the competition will further distorted in favor of the power companies. In the face of constant price increases in energy costs for households politicians have suggested already a kind of energy summit, where independent providers should be involved. Cheap alternatives to basic supply tariffs offer according to analyses of market observers there are as a so-called market maker, especially new and independent providers”. Most households in Germany still draw their energy to the basic supply rate.

Consumer groups and politicians recommend gas and electricity customers therefore a change to a cheaper provider. About FlexStrom, the independent FlexStrom AG exist for almost seven years. 2003 as Family business founded in, the medium-sized utilities currently experiencing strong demand after favourable electricity tariffs. FlexStrom is best known especially with prepaid products, now the energy supplier has established itself in addition with many innovative monthly plans. As a power supplier FlexStrom endeavour, electricity and green energy for its clients as possible on the market to buy a. In a winter promotion, FlexStrom offers currently particularly favourable electricity prices upon request also with 12 months price guarantee.
