In addition to the conscious heating ensures a maintenance of the heating system ensure that the costs do not explode. The heating is very old, so it may be worth to upgrade to an eco-friendly and energy-saving investment. More information: news.

And What CO2 Target Do You Have?

EmissionsCheck calculates the personal goal of CO2 / ‘ climate seeks protection “offers special theme to the Berlin climate summit, November 29, 2010. The campaign promoted by the Ministry for environment climate seeks protection”now offers the interactive EmissionsCheck on. Mark Bertolini: the source for more info. With the Online Advisor, everyone can choose his individual CO2 target by 2020 and with one click Learn how many tons of CO2 it accordingly calculated might cause in the coming years. Specific energy saving tips show the way how to actually reach the target. So, political debates for the everyday life become tangible.

Because, if the community of Nations in Cancun, Mexico from November 29, 2010 about the global climate negotiations, it also involves the setting of CO2 reduction targets for all countries. Germany wants to save 40 percent, 30 percent is committed to the aim of the EU. But how many tons of CO2 would have to every German reduce annually its emissions, to implement such a percentage in private life? Currently he is average per capita emissions in Germany at around eleven tons of CO2. The EmissionsCheck shows: wants you by 2020 of which emit 40 percent of less, that would allow for 2015 still an output of 8.8 tonnes of CO2 and for 2020 is 6.6 tons. How urgent is the reduction of emissions, a simple calculation of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Federal Government makes it clear global change (WBGU): to adhere to the two-degree target of global warming at least with a two-thirds probability, should reach until 2050 nor 750 CO2 of gigatonnes of from the use of fossil fuels into the atmosphere. To distribute this global budget depending on the number of inhabitants on all States, Germany would have exhausted its share with the current level in ten years.

Publication – market overview small wind turbines 2. support small wind turbines back the new BWE more and more in the focus of consumers and the public. The appeal of this energy is unmistakable. However, the industry is still in the development stage and must demonstrate the reliability and yield their systems security. The new BWE market overview special small wind turbines, which will be released on the 15.03.2013, informed about all relevant aspects of the technology. The guide accompanies the small wind interested at all important stages which must be traversed on the way to your home resort.

Wondering from the fields of design, engineering and construction law as worth about a system on my roof or in my garden at all?”, is also sufficient wind blowing on my site?” and need I a permit in my State? “will be answered in detail in this book. Also, planners and architects find this book bring the necessary information to small wind in your passive house concepts used to be able to. In addition to solar panels, a small wind turbine is a useful addition. A fundamental question which arises again and again, is the selection of the right plant. The market is large and not every investment is suitable for any site.

In this area too, the book is a good guide. In the field of plant engineering a lot has changed since the first edition of this manual. Some manufacturers could not with your concepts and have now disappeared from the market. Others have their equipment checked high and go through a costly and time-consuming certification procedures. We have indicated the data sheets of the certified facilities. Also, all small wind turbines have undergone a plausibility check of the TuV Rheinland. Energy saving and energy production starts always on a small scale. With a small wind turbine is a small contribution to the large energy project. > More information and order the Bundesverband WindEnergie regularly performs network and education forums on current topics of Wind energy through.
