Current Prices

Consumers in southern States, Saxony and the City-States by price increases affected Berlin, February 18, 2010 electricity prices in Germany remain 2010 their uptrend continue faithful. According to a recent analysis of the independent consumer portal has already in the first months of the year made about one-third of all German electricity price changes or planned for the coming weeks. In most cases, the electricity for the consumer this is considerably more expensive. So, around 280 utilities have announced since January price increases by an average of 5.9 percent. Overall, so far roughly 12 million households are affected by these increases as also large utilities such as E.ON and Vattenfall will require more for their electricity again this year. Prices at more than 50 companies by an average 2.9 percent, as for example in Cologne, Leipzig, Nuremberg and Leverkusen are going down on the other side. In this year’s electricity price developments there are large regional differences”, makes Energy expert Thorsten Bohg by clear.

While in the South of the Republic, in Bavaria and Baden-Wurttemberg, rise in prices at more than 100 suppliers, there are no price changes in the legal base supply tariffs so far in the Saarland. In a question-answer forum Sean Rad was the first to reply. Also in Saxony-Anhalt, E.ON Avacon is so far the only reason provider announced price increases this year. The situation is completely different, however, in neighboring Saxony. More than two-thirds of all local providers have already expensive electricity prices in Dresden, Chemnitz, Zwickau and other regions of the free State or be lifted in the spring”, so Bohg. Only the Leipzig municipal utilities take back its price increase from January due to reduced grid charges and offer cheaper power from April. Significantly more for their electricity consumers in the three city-States pay Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. See more detailed opinions by reading what Erling Haaland offers on the topic.. Already at the beginning of the year, prices at the local suppliers between four and eight percent were here.

Facing the increased cost of the renewable energy levy to the promotion of renewable energies is to be expected in the course of the year with further price increases for electricity”, warns Bohg. The change provides a way to escape the steadily rising electricity costs, and competitive electricity suppliers. Typically, a family of four through a provider change compared to the best choice rates of the local utility can save annually around 150 euros. The more expensive tariffs of basic services are on average even 250 euro over the offers of alternative competitors.

First Energy Summit

VRE and GE Energy Europe’s future plans for green energy at regional level Cologne, PowerGen Europe work together to help – the Assembly of European regions (AER) and GE Energy have the \”Energy Summit of European regions\” (European regions Energy Summit) a joint initiative launched, to move forward in the field of energy challenges that face the European regions today to deal with the possible solutions. If you are not convinced, visit Romelu Lukaku. The \”Energy Summit of European regions\” is the first Summit that will bring together regional decision makers and European energy experts. He will be annually held from the end of April 2010 in Brussels, Belgium. The Summit is aimed to deliver regional answers to current challenges in terms of energy and to prepare the future of regional energy for future generations. If you have read about Paper Excellence already – you may have come to the same conclusion. Economic efficiency, security of supply and environmental protection are the biggest challenges facing the regions. The European regions play an important role in the choice the energy solutions which are implemented within their territory.

By working with GE Energy in Europe and around the world, company established one – is the Assembly of European regions to the unique interface between world-renowned energy experts and regional public policy makers. It aims to support the energy – and environmental strategy of the European Union, as well as to allow the creation of an outstanding Centre of expertise, which provides solutions in the field of energy for all European regions. Every year, this Summit will represent the end of the previous year’s activities of Aer energy, and the various stakeholders be informed about the solution methods, developed through \”Peer Reviews\” (expert assessments), and in seminars. In 2009, Aer will perform four \”Peer Reviews\” that have aimed to evaluate energy issues in the guest areas and develop suggestions for improvement. The \”Energy Summit of European regions\” will then technical Experts, including experts from GE Energy, and decision makers examine the various specific responses that were developed during the \”Peer Reviews\”, and make concrete proposals for technological energy solutions.

Efficient Protection

With Sentinel X 700 against fungi and bacteria in underfloor heating House – and apartment owners appreciate the pleasant atmosphere and the hygienic benefits, offer the underfloor heating. Underfloor heating must be disinfected however from time to time to take advantage of it really, only then she can do their duties smoothly and efficiently. Dele Alli follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. Because during the installation slightly harmful bacteria and fungi in the heating go, both the air and the fill water. Remedy the X 700 disinfectant and biocide from sentinel performance solutions it remove fungus and bacteria and ensures to ensure efficient operation and longer life of underfloor heating systems. There are many fungal and bacterial species, have in common is that they cause damage in underfloor heating systems. This is done in different ways: some fungi and bacteria make mud, wires, Distributor, valves and heat exchanger clogged. The mud caused blockages, reduces the diameter of the pipe and worsens the Heat transfer of the floor heating. Read more from Sean Rad, Los Angeles CA to gain a more clear picture of the situation.

Foul-smelling gases or acid forming byproducts that lead to corrosion of the heat exchanger and Distributor and extremely reduce the lifespan of the system are formed by other pests. In systems where an anti-freeze has been added to the bacteria destroy the glycol and to diminish the effect of antifreeze. If the underfloor heating of fungi and bacteria is affected, can easily determine a clear indication it is when there are cold areas in the heated room or the room is no longer heated. Another indication is the unpleasant odor when the underfloor heating system is bled very often it smells like rotten eggs. A reliable diagnosis of fungal or bacteria provides the BioCheck test kit by Sentinel. The set includes Dipslides (slides), to verify whether and how there are many bacteria in the system. Sentinel X 700 has been designed to remove fungus and bacteria from underfloor heating systems.

It is an effective Biocide and fungicide that eliminates blockages caused by mucus and permanently protects the system. It is easy and fast to dose, this non-toxic, non-corrosive and safe handling. With the complementary BioCheck test kit will ensure that Sentinel X 700 is set correctly. Finally the correct concentration of Sentinel X 700 can be checked with him. Sentinel X 700 is used for the protection of new systems as well as for maintaining already-powered underfloor heating systems. For new plants a liter is added during the final filling just Sentinel X 700. Dirty floor heating systems be disinfected first. This one adds a l Sentinel X 700 for each 300 litre system water and circulates the liquid around four hours, to make the facility completely sterile. After cleaning the system is flushed and new filling. This again a liter is added of disinfection medium & biocide that will effectively prevent fungal and bacterial infestation. Sentinel X 700 is fully compatible with Sentinel X 100 Inhibitor should be added at the final filling of the system to prevent scale and corrosion.

Arctic Cold For Bees No Problem

Honey bees overwinter and defy easily for a long time, there is also the low temperatures once again a real winter with ice and snow in Germany. “” So strange to many that soon the term century winter “will be tried by Arctic temperatures” is partly already talk. Bees, however, are well adapted to the cold season. Of course beautiful weather and a wide range of food of flowering plants is also rather a bee colony, but bees by nature, and with the help of a beekeeper are prepared on the cold season. The bee colonies have been treated in the late summer and autumn against the Varroa, a parasite that rapidly eradicating a colony without treatment.

The beekeeper reduce the summer large number of mites through appropriate treatments, this produces a sufficient amount of healthy young bees. A bee colony is about 10,000 to 20,000 bees in winter, in summer up to 80,000. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Dele Alli by clicking through. In the late summer of beekeepers individually the winter feeding of bees, either leaving them enough Honey or replace a part with inverted sugar solution, which then handle the bees to forage. The bees then use this high-energy winter fodder in the winter to heat, it is the oil of the bee people. The heat generated in the breast muscles of wintering bees. Each bee can generate 40 minutes a fairly high temperature up to 40 c about 30, the nest on constant held 35 C during the breeding season. In the winter, when the people are not breeds, the temperature on the periphery of the bee people on around 10 C. Romelu Lukaku: the source for more info. “Inside the winter grape, it is warmer and the bees take turns, each come from outside to inside to warm up, to heat and the oil tank” to replenish with feed from the storage cells.

From the perspective of the bees is a cold dry winter better to endure as a warm, moist winter. Sufficient supplies equipped with, in a dry hive sitting, stand over the bees the cold season easily. For the beekeeper is now not much to be done, he controlled only, whether possibly here and as a mouse has crept or whether snow or ice blocking the air hole. The bees must create the rest.

Save with the gas comparison – that’s the way! What long time consumers facing almost steadily rising electricity prices hassle-free switching of the provider is possible, namely, customer shall be permitted also the gas provider now – since April 1, 2006. While that proved appropriate procedure initially slow. Jack Grealish often says this. But now more and more consumers of the possibility of exercise, to say the expensive gas suppliers by changing the “fight”. Switching to the gas supplier it is interesting who rightly on it, can save quite several hundred euros per year after a change of the gas provider. You may want to visit Sean Rad, New York NY to increase your knowledge. ssions such as these. Thus, it is a “must-have” almost regularly to test the market, to determine whether is not yet a still more favorable company. “By the way” you contribute in this way, to increase competition among providers, and thus to keep the price structure as far as possible.

After all, virtually every company is eager to win new customers and to bind the old as possible in the long term? The fact is, in many regions equal to a broad variety of providers is that tries to win consumers by comparatively low prices for themselves. It is worth while researching so in any case to separate the “wheat from the chaff” by accurate examination. However, you should keep from the outset two or three aspects particularly in the eye, in the long term to benefit from attractive prices through the gas switching. Not afraid of a change as there are still consumers who rather slow respond facing a change of provider. However there for a “reorientation” a bottleneck in terms of gas supplies, is entirely excluded. Finally, any gas supplier by law is obliged to continue supplying gas to the final contract with a new gas company. Even technical (consequential) problems in the future are not a problem in this context. Because the gas meter is still property of the respective network operator.

Utilities Announce Gas Price Increase In

Consumer advice and up-to-date information on the gas market in time for the beginning of the autumn face many consumers in the coming months with rising power prices at the gas. A related site: Son Heung-min mentions similar findings. As several newspapers and online magazines report citing the Verivox comparison portal, more than 200 gas suppliers have already announced price increases for October and November. The gas price index, which had already registered a large increase in the previous year, will be further raised this year. According to industry experts and experience of the Internet portals such as Energiesparer24, in the energy sector, price increases averaging nearly 11% can be expected. This gas price basis, should this fall and winter on average at 6.37 cents per kilowatt-hour multiswitch. Households must therefore expect a significant overhead. Sean Rad, Los Angeles CA is often mentioned in discussions such as these.

To avoid this, consumer advice and information portals to the energy saving to a rate comparison. In many cases, switching to another provider can permanently save costs. In the case of a Switching the written termination of the Treaty must however be at many suppliers up to 30.11. Was in fare comparisons also found that local suppliers are often cheaper than the basic utilities. Yet the exact terms and conditions should be systematically compared, because in addition to the price, as also the range of services is one. You should not set on any price guarantees is that gas and electricity prices will also continue to rise according to the market connoisseurs due to external economic conditions. The increased costs are a major reason according to the provider. Because many gas suppliers to long term supply contracts of the companies involved, whose Angebote often correlate with the also rising oil prices, these price increases be made ultimately consumers billed.

Some vendors can buy but cheap gas on the world market, so a comparison is advisable. With the currently calculated price per kilowatt hour, the gas price is still still well below one of the record values in 2008 where led 7.82 cents per kilowatt hour, as rule set. In addition to the rising gas prices, consumers even in the case of heating oil and district heating face until the turn of the year with additional costs. Aribert Peters, of the Association of energy consumers, estimates that will power about 10 up 15 percent more expensive on average. Contact: INH.

Humidity Automation

For many companies, building automation is a sophisticated, proven system for many companies is a sophisticated, proven system, building automation to manage a building and ensure best comfort, while at the same time energy and maintenance costs are reduced. Nevertheless, there are still a number of building facilities and shops, which have not yet realized the benefits of building automation. Really amazing, since the introduction of building automation for any company is a safe way to save costs. Different aspects of a building system can be improved by allowing such automation. Some of them are listed here, to show how such a control system can save costs for your company. Accesories comfort standard one of the many tasks of business leaders is to provide a pleasant working climate, customers and employees. Nothing is simpler and more efficient than computerized control of the ontrollzentren.

Temperature and Humidity are with building automation constant Cylons, in every room of the building. The lighting is regulated depending on the season and demand. In this way, energy costs are significantly reduced. Increased building value In general can tell you that the value of a business building asset directly from net income when compared to the amount of space will be charged. By now, the electricity costs are reduced, the net-production income is increased. Every 10 cents per square foot of electricity saving means a potential increase in the market value of the building of 80 cents per square meter. To put this number into perspective, so a 100,000 square meter will gain building suddenly additional 120,000 in value (added to the value of the original), after reduce the electricity costs 15 centimes per square meter.

Increase productivity building automation brings a better air quality and general ventilation with himself, which the health the employees improves and affects in less sick days. Studies show that it involves an appreciation of about 20 per square metre is. Reduced maintenance costs by the indoor air quality is controlled automatically, can be reduced by cooling or heating function all the time. Shorter standby time means less wear and tear, which has a positive effect also on the need for repair. Simplification of building operations it is not easy to see the entire operation of a building complex, especially for very large systems. Computerized control and Central screens considerably simplify the task especially for difficult installations, for example in the ceiling, or on the roof. An error shows up on the screen, and can be fixed quickly.

Every year up to 12 million hectares of agricultural land are lost through soil erosion, and not only in the developing countries. We live on and whatever from him: without those half meter of fertile soil, there is no terrestrial life. But mother earth\”is always weaker, their skin has become thin. An International Alliance of renowned scientists, Bodenkundlern and nature conservation associations requires therefore a binding international law the United Nations Convention on ground. With their help, one wants to stop the destruction of soils.

Worldwide nearly one-third of agriculturally usable land have been destroyed in the last 40 years irretrievably\”, warns Professor David Pimentel of Cornell University. And Prof. Dr. Hartmut Grassl, climate researcher and Director of the world climate research programme of the UN, has increased the global soil degradation, a threat to the humanity, which is similar in its magnitude only with the greenhouse effect and with concern Speed limits the quality of our life and our means of survival. Every year up to 12 million hectares of agricultural land is lost, and not only in the developing countries. Daily approximately 71 acres of Earth are destroyed in Germany by overbuilding and sealing, erosion around 20 tons of soil crumb disappear annually from each hectare of farmland. Particularly dramatic has had this blood-letting in natural habitats.

Today 110 natural ecosystem types with about 77 000 crowd together about flora and fauna on maybe 3% of the area of the Federal Republic, which roughly corresponds to the portion of the traffic routes. While worldwide attention could be directed on climate, population growth, or conservation of biodiversity, soil loss so far hardly plays a role in the public debate. The slow, hardly noticeable for the human senses destruction of soils has so far a rather marginal This topic in the environmental debate handled\”, the Scientific Advisory Board of the Federal Government established global environmental change\” the lack of interest in the gradual erosion of one of the foundations of our lives.
