Using sophisticated genetic analysis of Grauschenklige dress monkey as a distinct primate species could be unmasked. For biologists, Viet Nam must be a dreamland: still-undiscovered species of mammals live in once inaccessible jungle regions. So researchers in addition to various deer species could include for example the Vu Quang – wild cattle for the world as newcomers in the Zoological inventories. And even without a foot in that the South China this Socialist Republic to put sea, can track new mammal species. The biologist of Christian Roos from the Department of medical genetics of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich debunked a zoological sensation using complex gene analysis the grey Schenk leagues of dress monkey as a distinct primate species. So were the two species known until then, the Rotschenklige and the Schwarzschenklige dress monkey, a close relative dressed almost entirely in grey. Learn more at: Aflac. Dress monkeys belong to the most colourful primates. Their silky shiny fur and their are exceptional Face color that can vary from orange to reddish-brown in the bluish. In the red list of the World Conservation Organization (IUCN), the shy, up to 60 cm large climbing artists as stark are classified endangered. They are the forests of Vietnam. They eat mainly leaves, but also fruits and seeds will appreciate. It is unknown how many of them still exist. Become noticeable were horrors only by some specimens confiscated on local markets and were classified initially as a crossing of two different species, what already unusually would have been enough for themselves. “To clarify the matter, isolated from blood and hair samples of dress monkeys each a specific section of the gene Roos, and examined the similarities and differences: in addition, we analyzed to better evaluate the previously unknown gene structure of dress Monkey still the same gene sequence of four macaques and several Langurenarten”. The result was amazing. Have dress monkey with each other relatively large genetic differences, langurs and macaques -. There are therefore three types in the dress monkeys”, the Munich-based biologist says. The new way of Grauschenklige dress monkey, should also be the most, because she shows strong genetic similarities with macaques, which, it is believed that they are the ancestors of all Asian monkeys. This assumption is supported by the fact that the grey only in the Central Highlands of Viet Nam occur, local area researchers have long suspect that there once the two other kinds developed. Apart from the major scientific significance, the classification as distinct species also is crucial for their survival. The Vietnamese Government, which under protection provides areas especially due to the living primates, or has already, would meet arguably similar measures for the grey Schenk leagues of dress monkey. It would be urgently needed, because although the hunting of monkeys is officially banned, the poachers pressure in which is poverty-stricken country enormously – land most of the captured animals in the saucepan.
Successor of energy eye from January 2010 available so far energy-conscious and interested consumers or energy consultants it was the energy eye possible to determine peak loads in the power consumption and to eliminate such energy hog from the households or consciously use. The energy smart eye is available for a fee in the future be targeted to take energy-intensive consumer tariff-competitive times in operation. A detailed analysis of the consumption is the first step to make the best use of energy. The energy eye wins the energy values over an optical sensing system of the meter disk and transmits the data to a computer, where they are graphically. This peak power consumption can be determined and fuel-intensive components targeted on and off or replaced with new, more energy-efficient devices. Electricity providers and tariffs can be selected also expansions. This consumption smoothing mobilize savings up to 20%. Even in the planning of cogeneration the energy eye a helpful Assistant. The Power requirements to determine the load profile of a household over a longer period should be recorded. This is an economic interpretation of the system with respect to its own power, electricity sales and load management possible. With its successor, the so-called energy smart eye, which is available from January 2010, is it will also be possible to choose individual device power-on times. In plain language, that the energy called smart eye decide when is the best time, E.g. to To put your washing machine in motion. But also the reverse is possible. That is, the system automatically disconnects consumers which are not absolutely necessary, if the current load would rise too far. An Ethernet also interface that makes it possible the unit about to get Internet consumption data or to select the lowest electricity tariff.

Prices for energy, the search for alternatives to fossil fuels becomes increasingly important. Master gardener Reinhard Sperr pushes this theme for years, starting from Austria already planting in Romania, the Ukraine, Bulgaria and also in Central Europe were carried out under his direction. Simple planting, low maintenance and Dungeaufwand (low input) make energy crops on soils with below-average credit ratings the promising alternative. The development shows sharply rising trends in Central Europe, in particular in energy wood. Here are especially fast-growing varieties of poplar, willow, and black locust among the most profitable genres. At the energy grasses, especially Miscanthus (elephant grass), have in recent years also booming growing numbers. Currently, but a certain flattening of this dynamic is visible. So, 925 hectares (of 428 acres in Upper Austria, Austria) were established as end 2010 in Austria. Energy wood (poplar, willow, Robinia) is also approximately 1,000 acres in Austria from, with emphasis here followed by Styria, Austria, in lower Austria. (Source: Chamber of Agriculture of Austria) Energy crops for biomass production alone will not solve future energy challenges, they can but very much independence from fossil fuels and nuclear energy to go make a valuable, even ecological contribution to a further step in the direction of.

Collective green power BIGGE pur awarded by TuV. On hot summer days, are popular destinations for Bigge and Sorpe and provide welcome cooling. But the two dams offer far more than relaxation and fun. Valuable eco-electricity is obtained from its hydroelectric the BIGGE energy with the natural electricity tariff BIGGE pur harnesses for the region. TuV monitored according to strict regulations, whether the eco-friendly energy supply keeps what it promises. Each year, the technical surveillance TuV, short, certify whether organic power products actually obtained 100% from renewable energy sources. The TuV-certificate gives consumers certainty and security to use clean energy. BIGGE energy again received the coveted award of the German TuVs. We are proud with our eco-friendly tariff BIGGE pure again to have met all the criteria. Thus an energy offer available remains the region, naturally and directly with the local hydropower plants of Bigge and Sorpe won is”, Tonis Arens, technical director of the Lister – and Lennekraftwerke, making the energy Verbund BIGGE energy together with Stadtwerke Attendorn and Olpe Stadtwerke pleased. Prior to the award of the certificate, the TuV checked consistently the way from the farm to the consumer. Prerequisite for the certification was also the regular information of the customers to the eco power product and an easy way to terminate. The directive that supplements the standard fare used to promote renewable energies, was fulfilled. The slight overhead of 0.5 euro-cents per kWh for BIGGE pure benefit directly regional environmental and energy projects. So more attractive offers to set up for clean power. More and more consumers opt for green electricity, the stronger the development of other renewable energy sources can be supported in the region.

Really save on gas costs. A change of the energy provider up to 50prozent of the cost savings due to the pending increases of in gas prices should necessarily have a look in your old gas provider contract. Sometimes, you will be amazed what enormous savings can be achieved. Following aspects should be sure to observe this: first step you should take a look in your current contract. The conditions of cancellation are important. Many providers use a minimum term of 12 months. Here, you can cancel then only before expiry of the term with a period of 6 weeks. Ideally you should write the next appointment in your calendar. Some vendors have also a much shorter term. Note: Another way of termination is when a rate change their provider. Then an extraordinary termination right is available to you. Then you can find a new energy supplier. Following aspects you should consider when switching to a new Provider Note: minimum: most providers require their customers to a minimum term of 12 months. Some work some energy providers with shorter maturities. You should consider this necessarily upon completion of the contract. The term is an important aspect in connection with a price guarantee. Notice: Also this period is of great importance. You should be sure to record the termination date of your current contract itself. You miss the granted period of notice, the contract is extended automatically to an agreed time. Prepayment: Some providers, you can get an additional discount if you are willing to pay the announced costs for several months in advance. The cost for three, six or twelve months, this can be dependent on the provider. Make sure at the conclusion of the contract on this condition. Some providers offer discounted rates only with a corresponding advance payment. Price guarantee: At changing rates offers a price guarantee an interesting alternative to get a certain security in the energy costs. Of course, you can pay these guarantee the appropriate provider. You have to pay something more than if you do without a guarantee. Mostly the providers give a guarantee of three to twelve months. Bonus: All providers are always looking for new customers. Accordingly, many gas suppliers admit your customers special bonuses in the contract. This can be discounts or free gas units. Compare the different bonus offers. Base price: Most providers the gas price comprises a standing charge and a price per unit. Look not only at the individual prices. A provider with a low basic price must be not necessarily cheaper than a provider with a high basic price. The total price for a current year is crucial. Only this component can be compared. Online rates: Some providers offer special online fares exclusively on the Internet. These are very cheap and can be booked only via the Internet. Tip: Exist so that you do not countless offers, some service providers on the market, which will give you free prepare direct price comparison between the energy suppliers. To do this, you must specify only your current consumption data (consumption per year) and your place of residence. You will then receive an overview of possible alternatives. Here you can compare directly various providers
House construction: Berlin discovered the energy-plus-House living in a cozy power plant: the Federal Ministry supports the building of the future. In Berlin, a model energy, which produces considerably more power than the people consume is produced. In addition, the energy-plus-House becomes a charging station for electric vehicles. In Brandenburg and Berlin, ever energy home plans cheap houses that already meet these requirements. Berlin is looking for a family that moves into an energy plus House test for 15 months. This new building will produce twice as much energy as the family in everyday uses. The excess electricity output to fuel such as an electric vehicle, which is ready for family outings. The Federal Ministry for transport, building and urban development promotes this model project. The energy plus House in Berlin is inaugurated at the end of the year. It aims to develop a new generation of buildings after the test phase. It seems essential, because housing and transportation consume nearly 70 percent of German energy. For this reason Ever-energy group builds already energy efficient solid houses in Brandenburg and Berlin. All residential buildings are equipped with heat pump and solar photovoltaic system. They provide so much power that a family of four in the modern houses can live independently. New support program for construction of House: more than living only in the energy the new funding programme of the Federal Ministry applies to one – or two – row houses and apartment buildings. It should assist those who plan to build a House with plus-energy standard. The buildings are heated with renewable energy as well as generate electricity and supply thus also nearby houses or fuel electric vehicles. In this way, the future energy-plus-House offers an environmentally friendly use and persistent connects traffic and construction. This idea draws on the ever energy group. The clean-tech companies giving away scooter for each sold Solarcarport. With the annual yield of solar power, E-biker can drive up to 125,000 miles and save CO2. See also: carports / building Berlin: Living in the energy plus House ever energy home who moves not as test family in the energy-plus-House and already plans to own building in Berlin and Brandenburg in the next few months, should look for alternatives. So is the building with the ever energy group as a cost-efficient and climate-friendly solution. The energy-efficient Massivhaus can be adapted to the respective life design. In addition, the modern concept of energy helps cost save. Instead of regularly increasing energy prices, heating and driving the residents with affordable renewable energy. Who thinks about his future, should invest in massively built and durable bungalows, semi-detached houses, townhouses or semi-detached houses. They guarantee a high value retention and thus have a secure retirement.
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 system operator. Media reports do not agree about missing cables or maintenance thus. 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. 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.
Since the 15.08.2011 offers the symstrom GbR, specialist for graphical representation of energy, to individuals on products to the automatic saving of electricity and heat. The range includes displays which depict the power consumption, like plug, turn automatically or at the push of button devices via radio. Also generating electricity from solar energy systems can be monitored either with a display or computer. Heating costs can be reduced through the thermostatic valves offered in which these are programmed via the PC or the Smartphone and the heating to selected times to automatically – or turns off. Individual products from a price of around 100 euros are available. Not all products are equally well suited for every budget. It’s all the more important to support the customers, for example with clear comparisons of product, as they can be found on stromgraf.de the right choice”so Tino Nietsch, one of the two founders of symstrom. To facilitate the selection of the customer, be suitable products offered in packages. These packages are tailored to the respective living conditions and make sure as the functionality of the customer. In the portfolio are both branded products of from well-known manufacturers such as Gira or RWE efficiency, as also innovative young companies like Plugwise, green energy options and Wattcher.

Suddeutsche leading event for energy plus buildings at the CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE 2012 forward-looking approaches the aim of an energy suppliers to make building the pure consumer, including so-called energy plus houses: the energy needed for heating or hot water is in the or even produced at the House, mostly by solar systems. Building can provide then other buildings with excess energy, which are dependent on a supply. With the project “Effizienzhaus plus” in Berlin, the Federal Ministry for transport, building and urban development (BMVBS) has set an important signal. What has it with the development of the Energieeinsparverordnung plus on and looks like the future is on the 30.03.12 in the “2nd Symposium energy plus building” within the framework of the CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE, Stuttgart explains. The event of Texprocess is the Federal Ministry of transport, building and urban development. Can the symposium this year as the most important event on the topic of energy plus building in the be seen in southern Germany and in cooperation with the HTWG Konstanz already provides for the second alternative definitions and concepts for the planning of energy plus buildings and their integration in the urban context to the discussion. A further focus is on innovative technologies and projects realised. Hans-Dieter Hegner Undersecretary of the Federal Ministry of transport, building and urban development is the program “Energieeinsparverordnung plus” present Ministry. The first fully functional and habitable Energieuberschusshaus in Berlin can be visited since December, 2011. CEP patron Dr. Peter Ramsauer, Federal Minister for transport, building and urban development said in a greeting: “In the building sector it should be possible, newly built buildings from 2019 carbon neutral operate. The research initiative components were future construction of the Federal Ministry and concepts developed for buildings that can afford it. The Energieeinsparverordnung plus with electro-mobility”carried out this approach exemplary.
Because the culture encompasses the entire enterprise ultimately. It expresses in visible structures, such as the building and the service cars, the leadership culture but also in objectives and regulations and the fundamental values and self-awareness. “Interesting way can climate strengthening work to support already sought internal changes in culture of the company.” How such a transformation process can expire, explained Uwe Dahl, Managing Director of the model company hanseWasser from Bremen: Our experience shows, rather crucially, what we want to change. It is much more important how we implement and initiate change. We have therefore established interdepartmental working groups, so-called energy team, which together draw up measures. Whose members wear the transformation in all levels of the company.” The next module of the Energy consensus climate: Academy will take place on the 5th of December 2013. It is titled climate controlling miss it or forget it”, and aimed primarily at controllers, technicians, and members of the Executive Board. The participants will learn how to set metrics (KPIs), and target figures and what are the options for CO2 reporting there. Interested parties can register at.
