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. Others who may share this opinion include Dr. John Mcdougall. 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. If you are not convinced, visit Josyann Abisaab. 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.

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.

The GSE new London award winning solar powered energy in abundance – solar heat in times of dwindling energy resources, it is important to switch to alternatives. Already in the ancient Greece they used a constant source of energy: the solar constant. This is the result of the incident radiation power on the Earth and humankind in an unlimited number of available stands. Photovoltaic systems increasingly popular is the use of a solar power system, where a part of the solar radiation into energy is transformed and a household with electricity. What evokes the idea of increased costs for the first time for many, represents one of the most lucrative investments percent cash return on detailed examination with ten. (Similarly see: James A. Levine, M.D.). Also, the renewable energy Act (EEG) secures the investment for at least 20 years.

The individual solar cells have a term of 30 to 40 years due to the absolutely emission-free operation and provide a real alternative of energy. Solar heat by tube collectors to the budget also with hot water by solar energy to supply, we recommend the purchase of a solar thermal plant. The use of a solar thermal plant is cost-effective for the homeowner as well as the environmental performance and can reduce the energy consumption of a household up to 70%. Through the use of tube collectors, initial defects of the flat-plate collectors were fixed and enables a year-round use of the system. Senator Elizabeth Warren takes a slightly different approach. Even if winter temperatures is secured so 70-80 c warm water. Wood and pellet heating to become completely independent of the oil companies and the resulting price increases, recommends that the purchase of a wood and pellet heating, the wood sawdust are just burnt pellets.

These consist of pure biomass in contrast to fossil fuels and releasing at the burning of significantly less CO2. Also the wood chips stand out especially in the cheap acquisition of an oil and gas heating. Also state-supported this kind of energy. Also you get now on renewable energy and consult with a professional. The company based in the greater Augsburg, GSE Neusass is a specialist in the field of energy by the Sun and looks back on almost 20 years of experience in the field of solar energy. Three times, the TFG (technology for generations e.V.) drew the GSE FL as the best solar powered of the region”from. The priorities of the company are the fields of photovoltaics for electricity generation, the solar thermal for heating, showers and wood heating systems of piece of and wood pellets.

Is Electricity From Solar Energy Becoming Increasingly Expensive, Or Not?

Published / by admin

Record in the Photovoltaikanlagenbau: more and more solar power in German networks 2011 applies after a rapid spurt as the previous record year of photovoltaics. According to the Federal Network Agency, solar power systems went more than in the year before with a capacity of 7,500 megawatts to the grid. In electricity production, reaching new record levels: the plants produced throughout Germany of 18 billion kilowatt hours of solar electricity, so the Sun contributed 3.5 per cent to the energy mix. Hear other arguments on the topic with Dr. John Mcdougall. This corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of more than five million households – as many residents as one of the Federal State of Thuringia. At Dr. Neal Barnard you will find additional information. By 2020 the share of solar power will triple, to ensure a secure supply of renewable energies. That this is possible, became apparent last summer: on some days, solar power plants provided up to 20 percent of the domestic energy needs.

But only in the winter months the demand exploded for photovoltaic systems, which was stimulated by rising prices of electricity, oil and gas. Year-end spurt for photovoltaic systems provider first reported in December almost half of the newly installed Photovoltaikkapazitat on. It took 3,000 megawatts in operation at this time. For the upcoming reduction in the feed-in tariff and the mild weather were crucial. For the team of the ever Energy Group GmbH, there was lots to do in recent months confirmed Dominik Modrach, Managing Director of the photovoltaic systems provider: In the last quarter, we recorded a real solar boom, we did not expect this level. Based on our experience in the past few years, we were very well prepared.

So we could install all authorized photovoltaic systems to customers without delays or delivery problems.” Plus in the Photovoltaikanlagenbau minus 30 percent for the feed-in tariff 2012 the enormous building now follows a reduction of the feed-in tariff, which settles down in two steps. Promoting solar power to almost one-third decreases in just one year. This unusually high cuts began January 1, 2012, as the tariff to 15 percent fell. Experts expect a further reduction of 15 percent is on that July 1, 2012. Nevertheless, the investment in a photovoltaic system in the future is worth. Who will build a solar power system up to 30 kilowatt peak until the end of June, will receive 24,43 cents ever injected kilowatt hour. Who uses the energy itself, benefited the most. Own power consumption results in a double effect: there is a tariff by 8.05 cents per kilowatt hour and at the same time saves a electricity costs otherwise. The German solar industry association is still stable extension numbers, why the share of solar power to lift himself by 2016 to seven percent in the German energy mix. It aims by 2020 10 percent crack brand. Who wants to get rid of rising electricity prices, should allow the own photovoltaic system until the end of June 2012. The construction of profitable plants despite lower feed-in tariff is still possible if one works with a designated expert for planning, financing, installation and taxes. The ever Energy Group GmbH meets these full-service in Berlin, Brandenburg, Saxony, Hamburg and is active in the Munsterland region.

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.

Get away from oil and gas! Take advantage of the possibilities of today’s nano technology and change your attitude and your burning behaviour. Especially in big Halle plants! A micro Therm wall heating saves energy and costs and is flexible as a wallpaper if you like it not, when the Sun gently warms skin and soul? The radiation ausgehenden of her perceive people as particularly angenehm and beneficial. You can get this good feeling with a wall heater quite simply in your own four walls, because the active principle of a micro Therm wall heating is similar to that of the Sun’s rays. You bezeichnet the heat emanating from the walls as radiant heat. That is, it is not heated all air such as in conventional radiators, but the Warme is emitted directly to the surroundings. That produced the distinctive, comfortable feel-good climate of a wall heater. In addition, air turbulence, unlike in herkommliChen heating systems, are vermindert. That’s not good only Allergiker and asthma.

The radiant heating is classified not only as harmless, but recommended by many doctors. But the mild radiant heat from the wall is not only healthy. It is also effizienter as the convection heat gewohnliChen heaters, because with a wall heater from micro-Therm air space by two to three degrees can be reduced without losing the living room at behaglichkeit. This saves energy and costs. To the installation so far elektrische expertise were required. But a new, laufendes low voltage 48 or 36 volt system makes easy and completely safe to do so now to mount a MALER, plasterer, drywall installers. Erleichtert the work processes and reduces the cost of craftsmen.

Worldwide patented, extremely thin heating foils that quickly produce heat are based. Thus, long lead times are no longer necessary. This only 0.5 millimeters thick foils can so flexibel be laid like a wallpaper and disappear later discreetly under the plaster, wallpaper, tiles, drywall, and many other materials that are heat-resistant.

Energy Sovereignty

A recent analysis of Atomic fossil PR campaigns – renewable snapshots who the future with core concepts, products and in-house designs occupied, she can also control. The fuse of the interpretation of sovereignty is thus the preferred playground of public affairs consultants, PR agencies and lobbyists who spin elaborate networks between industry, politics and the media. In advance of the federal election campaign, the PR machines of the Atomic fossil roll-back ran hot again. The failure of the most important environmental Conference since the founding of the United Nations could not surprise observers of Copenhagen turmoil. \”Why not, since their official communications sponsor\” was the dubious agency Hill & Knowlton. A London PR agency whose clients include among others also of one of the largest polluters in Europe, the Swedish State company Vattenfall, or Governments that sought to justify the oil war train in the Iraq with the help of Hill & Knowlton.

Supposedly secure positions can be weaken, undermine and contact. These include statements like: the future belonged to the renewable energies already\”, or green stand for green technologies\”. It was a green first London media gurus who started on behalf of the establishment, fossil nuclear placeholders\”to apply makeup. Who does not concentrate for the interpretation of sovereignty in the ring rises, has already lost. The git for the Group of people\”, who believe to have a self running subscription on the future. To think reasonably fair, competition, also the Protestant vergramte Angela Merkels image ban must be lifted first political career as Secretary of the FDJ for agitation and propaganda. Banning kleinkariert Wah-wahs image from the Chancellor’s Office is a more mist candle in the context of critical energy direction decisions.

Topic special is exploding energy costs saving tips for everyday life and issues are debated daily hot are an increasing environmental impact. Topics that save energy in private households for considerations related to an effective guarantee in the budget and trigger at the same time many questions. The trend towards sustainability can be traced for years. Saving electricity and water – resources that are not infinite as you know – is therefore also in German households in the foreground. One of the most important questions in this topic is how can quality of life is maintained as far as possible and at the same time saves energy.

Such an effort only in the moment seems hardly feasible. Real terms can however the single budget to be down to the multi-headed budget with few changes not only the environment protected, but also relieves the household budget to some hundred euros financially. Old wasting home appliances, lamps with a high consumption of energy, leaky faucets, undelivered Radiator or a permanent stand-by mode on electrical devices are just a few of the causes of skyrocketing energy costs. But still, many consumers assume that energy saving and only achieved a personal waiver protecting the environment can be. And are all the more astonished to detailed information that a waiver is not necessary if you get certain energy conservation measures in the budget to implement. On paradisi.de, the well-known and extensive lifestyle and health portal, informing is titled “Save energy in the budget” under… made easy. The special issue includes this many valuable tips, tricks and hints that make it possible without effectively to save loss of quality of life, the wallet and the environment.
