Do you have a store easily in sight, but all? A recent survey by metCount in Bremen shows: chain stores want comfort and transparency in the energy evaluation of your branches. Saving energy and thus money, which is in the interest of every entrepreneur. Just for chain stores it is essential, energetically to monitor operational processes and optimize continuously. Ideally, that synergies can be exploited and make equal to multiple savings in consumption and in the purchasing of electricity, gas and water. But how many chains to monitor and analyze their consumption? And what evaluation methods are known or are preferred? MetCount (wholly owned subsidiary of swb AG) in a poll conducted in the spring of 2012 looked into these issues. In targeted market screening 115 chain stores were contacted through a mailing sent in advance and a follow-up phone call and asked. The industry of respondents focused on banks and financial institutions, retail and trade with motor vehicles as well as the gastronomy. The vast majority of respondents (69 percent) recorded a Filialumfang of up to 50 stores.
Energy monitoring is essential the survey revealed that the energy monitoring for the chain is already a big issue. A majority (78 percent) analyze their consumption. The majority of the Filialverbrauch comparison takes place through an energy consultant (30 percent) or Bill comparison (26 percent). This is the use of a consultant very comfortable, however, requires a high degree of confidence in the service provider. In addition, the consultant as opposed to manual invoice comparison caused higher costs. Continue this method requires time and attention of the chain stores and offers no comprehensive analysis capabilities and transparency, which are necessary for optimal evaluation. A third method available is the chain through the use of intelligent software solutions for a comprehensive and efficient energy monitoring down to the last detail. metCount offers to the Example with his WEB portal industrial a specially to the needs of chain stores monitoring system tailored to.
Energetic refurbishment and modernisation investment is for building owners as well as for the owners of a broadening there are many ways to harness the energy revolution. A property or even the future ownership offers the possibility to decide from which energy suppliers to supply with energy would like to have and in what form the supply should be free regardless of a landlord. But other options available to homeowners, as far as possible to reduce energy costs, protect the environment or energy may even earn money with the expensive goods. Just who is newly built, can plan with energy-saving construction measures or facilities for the production of energy. This is usually cheaper than a subsequent conversion or modernization and is also promoted by the State.
During the construction, for example, special insulation materials are used, special pipes or cables and insulating glazing are installed. A detailed consultation prior to the Construction phase can show clients what you can do to make his new home as energy-efficient as possible. This protects not only the own purse strings in the long term, but do something good and the environment. “Modernizing heating systems In the area of heating there is, for example, various alternative forms of heating, the normal” replace heating system. A private fireplace, for example, is not only cozy and creates a pleasant warmth, but saves also heating.
Heating systems that are older than 20 years should be checked by a qualified electrician. There are now significantly more efficient central heating boilers with condensing technology. Also regenerative cookers can be thinking about in the case of a modernization. Promotions are sometimes possible from the KfW or by the Federal Office of Economics and export control. Add to your understanding with Kushner Companies. Old heating pumps are a power guzzler par excellence. A pump swap can save you up to 120 euros per year in electricity costs alone. Some savings obtained with special facilities for rain water use is also in the area of water supply. This involves measures which seen cheaper in the long term are and contribute to the protection of the environment. Solar panels on the roof who want to take advantage, however, the environment, the should with the subject of renewable energy detailed deal. Depending on the type of home, a photovoltaic system can be installed also the roof but the roof can be rented out as a place for a photovoltaic system? Both alternatives can also bring money. The energy that is produced with an own photovoltaic system can be used both for to cover the energy consumption at home as well, to be fed into the power grid. For this you get an appropriate remuneration as owner. Photovoltaic systems are often still profitable despite funding cuts. Also a solar thermal installation for heating support can help to reduce energy costs. The heating system can be supported here in the hot water. In contrast to the photovoltaic systems here also a small roof area sufficient to Investment to justify. Contact: Andreas Madel KWH price UG (haftungsbeschrankt) Uhlandstrasse 4 89077 Ulm

What is an energy efficient home? Provided, what exactly is an energy-efficient home? Provided that this is consistent with the needs of the home owner, an energy-efficient home is one that reduces the energy consumed by simply less energy is needed; Therefore, an energy-efficient home reduced the harmful effects on the environment, reducing greenhouse gases. If one compares an energy efficient home with a conventional home, one can determine the differences in terms of energy consumption and the energy behavior very easily. This in turn will result in cheaper energy bills and thus an energy-efficient home is far cheaper than a conventional. There are different ways in which you can reduce energy consumption in your home and can thus increase its energy efficiency. How can so increase the energy efficiency in your home? In the following we list possible methods for you, as you just increase the energy efficiency can.
The insulation of your home during a hot summer we need energy to keep our home cool, so this is pleasant in temperature and we feel good. On the other hand, we need energy in the winter to heat our home. A well insulated home consumes much less energy, keeps unwanted heat out in the summer and let our House be warm and comfortable in winter. Heat is prevented from easy-to-escape (energy waste). Therefore you should isolate well your home with the following assistance: use good insulator and insulate your roof also sufficiently. Check out Noble Group for additional information. Don’t forget the walls and install Thermofenster. So, you will consume far less energy when it comes to either cool or warm your home. Their electricity and heating costs will be reduced.
Heating and cooling your home, according to a report of the Energy Agency, you can reduce your costs by up to 50%. If you improve the heating and cooling your home would like you to consider also the needs of your family. Also keep changing the air filter regularly, and regularly serviced the air shaft. As a result, you can save up to 20% energy. Energy efficient electrical appliances and installations using renewable energy sources in addition to the building and its design, also includes the use of energy-efficient appliances in your home. A careful handling of energy is recommended. Typically, all devices available today have an energy certificate. Appliances such as kettles, fans, light bulbs, and others, can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home. Bioclimatic design and planning your home as already mentioned, is recommended from the outset to make it your home’s energy efficiency. This can be life-saving. Passive austerity measures, such as a bioclimatic design, through, for example, the use of solar lamps or a solar heater can also be critical when it comes to your home to achieve improved energy efficiency.
How must something and save the world from the great disaster and which does not harm our planet and its creatures put on Enerdiequellen. Climate change and renewable energies such as solar energy: Who hasn’t heard of it yet? But what brings that knowledge of these things, if the person is not? Our planet we must act to protect and may perish if we continue our energy will win the world from fossil fuels (petroleum, natural gas, soil carbon etc…) soon in environmental disasters: climate change accelerates, the polar ice caps melt and the world is awash. A flooding of the beautiful island chain of Maldives seems to be no longer avoidable. This is to prevent a warning signal to the people that we humans have to take worse and to finally live up to the responsibility that we have as inhabitants of this planet. I therefore appeal to the humanity with energy conscious to deal: we should deal with the energy that we have more economical (for example by: light in the empty) (Even driving off space, run devices not in stand-by mode, use energy saving light bulbs instead of car foot go etc) and focus of energy on renewable energy use: energy generation through the power of nature (force of water, the wind and the Sun etc..). In my opinion the solar energy plays an important and large role. The Sun has a tremendous power, it would be foolish of the people rather than to use energy efficiently this power. Therefore always better solar cells developed the research and projects are planned which will help effectively to use the energy from the Sun as for example the project Desertec (inexhaustible, clean, affordable energy.
Powered by desert sun). The economy is ready to implement this project, but as is so often the policy is hesitant. Nevertheless, it is important that each individual inhabitant of this planet contributes something to the preservation of our planet. He may for example through the construction of solar cells at home. This measure is subsidized even politically, so that a long term benefit not only the Earth, but also of their own purses. So do something for themselves and their fellow human beings, be a role model and use renewable energy sources such as solar energy. To sit around idly. Wilhelm Muller
Energy saving tips for the year final: with MyHammer payments avoid year final 2010: expected high payments MyHammer are valuable tips to save energy installers and heating engineers can be found at myhammer.de Berlin, tenants and apartment owners must adapt now 2010 October 19, 2010 on high payment at the final of the year. The reasons for this are the long, cold winter, as well as the rise in prices at 81 gas suppliers. * the German tenants Association estimates that alone for the last January and February heating costs around 20 to 50 euro higher fail depending on the insulation than the average of the past decade. * to avoid unpleasant surprises in future year accruals MyHammer useful tips are: properly airing the greatest heat loss during aeration caused by flipped window. Warm heating air reaches directly to outside walls and furniture very quickly cool down. Through targeted shock air and up to 200 euro per heating season savings. Andreessen Horowitz addresses the importance of the matter here. the avoidance of permanently tilted Windows can be according to the tenant Federal Association of German * heating check air in the heating system water circulation system means an increased power consumption of the pump. Regular venting of the heater helps and eliminates in addition flow noise and uneven hot becoming of the individual radiators.
MyHammer artisans make the so-called hydraulic check reliably and ensure proper operation. Alternative fuels homeowners who don’t want to be dependent on the growing oil and gas costs, the handle to alternative fuels, such as wood pellets, is recommended. These are for years on a constant and low price level compared to fossil fuels. Because they arise as a by-product in sawmills, must they not produced and thus preserve the environment. The MyHammer experts advise about the possibilities of heating with wood pellets and upgrade the heating system After expertly. Energy-saving electrical appliances when buying new electrical appliances should be taken necessarily on their energy consumption.
We have the costs under control! GmbH – solutions out of sympathy with the testing of GmbH LAS is set the heating system on the behaviour and the needs of the tenants. This only so much energy in the object as necessary. In addition, irregularities in the operation of the heating system are immediately detected and reported by SMS or E-Mail to the administrator. The Leipzig City AG (LSBAG) has recognized the signs of the time and leaves their tenants when it comes to energy costs not in the rain. Considering that approximately 90% of the energy consumed in households on heating and hot water, is obvious, what to do”know Hannes Kain, Chief Technology Officer of LSBAG. Using the latest technology we save the shock of high expenses payments and that our tenants despite the harsh winter and rising energy prices.” Hannes Kain builds on the partnership in the implementation of its strategy with the GmbH, the Leipzig billing service provider for the energy and housing sector, LAS with the objects of modern testing has equipped. “LAS is the only I know company that guarantees the technique and above all the personnel for a smooth and individual implementation.” To secure stable figures even in economically difficult times, the LSBAG of energy savings in addition to intelligent restoration puts on the monitoring of the heating system and visualization of consumption for tenants. It focuses on non-investment projects.

Sustainability on Entega.de to find the climate protection is very important to many gas and electricity suppliers and it is also more and more with this topic is concerned. Sustainability in the use of energy is made possible by environmentally-friendly products and tariffs. Especially the environmentally friendly suppliers invest a certain turnover every year n production concepts and try to take a leading role in this way in the industry more and more. To provide households with sustainability means that no nuclear power is used, but renewable energy for the power supply are responsible. Those who are interested in sustainability at the power supply, which should look once at entega.de, because here is a provider of energy dealing with sustainability. Many people do not know what does sustainability really mean. Explains short and sweet it actually means that resources are used, leave still an environment in the present, which is intact and not destroyed, so that life is also possible. So is attempting a power supply to provide, which is CO2 neutral. It is described on entega.de. At the same time attempting but also to keep the price fair. Nuclear power isn’t so sustainability, much more renewable energies must be understood. That not only an energy supplier about the sustainability thinking and also after this is addressed, it is already possible to access renewable energy in many parts of Europe. Would consumers something good do some change and the world, also they have the sustainability should think and just when entega.de look at, as it is possible. The electricity supplier can easily switch and should opt for one, which is important to the sustainability of energy supply.
Wind farms have the question why the wind parks should be ecologically questionable negative ecological impact, seems first incomprehensible, because the wind energy but is a renewable and environmentally friendly energy. So an ideal solution to ecological problems that go hand in hand with fossil fuels and nuclear energy. On this basis, the use of wind energy was promoted accordingly in recent years in Europe. The wind energy in Germany such as 2007 with 142 PJ compared to 2006 with 110 PJ, 32 PJ more primary energy consumption contributed to (source: BMWi energy statistics;) Stand: 2007). To broaden your perception, visit Ben Horowitz. The gained electricity was estimated at over 40 TWh in 2008 in Germany, 7% of the total electricity generation in the country according to the BMU about. In Denmark, in 2006 approximately 20% of electricity produced by wind energy and Spain in this regard among the top Nations in Europe with growing share.
These statistics are publicly widespread and the society has internalized them as facts for an eco-friendly technology. Critical question were limited both in the society and professionals only on a few issues, which have been so intensively treated with investigations, takes measurements or statistics depending on the focus. Kevin Johnson has much experience in this field. Environmentalists are the expansion of wind farms in principle positive, request but also investigations of effects on the environment and its consequences, which schematically expire after well-known topics and provide data. There are, for example, already numerous studies for effects on marine and land animals, including special such as on various bird species has been carried out, which yielded different results depending on the place and location of area however. The Immissions caused by construction and operation of the facilities of the noise or the effects of shadows by an average of 110 m high plants are examples. One of the most explosive debate runs still on the change of scenery and the acceptance of those affected. Further details can be found at Alan Hoffmann, an internet resource.
Fish technology Managing Director Dr. Gerd-Uwe Meylahn in an interview with “joule” Moringen Fredelsloh, January 2009 see an option biogas producer in fish farming along to get the power-heat-coupling bonus and to increase the profitability of their investments, says Dr. Gerd-Uwe Meylahn, Managing Director of Fischtechnik International Engineering GmbH. But the necessary expertise in the production of fish and a sober investment planning are key factors for the success, he admonishes “joule” for agricultural energy, technology, politics and economy in the current January edition of the journal. The biogas sector and aquaculture could complement well, because heat energy is required in the fish farm throughout the year, the fresh mud, possibly the entire wastewater from aquaculture in the bio-gas plant can be exploited, the infrastructures of the biogas plant and the fish farm could complement each other and usually farms, who are familiar with livestock, operate biogas plants.” If Waste heat is used, Dr. Meylahn advises to produce warm water fish farmers who accept a water temperature of 20 to 26 C, carp, eel, Zander, catfish, barramundi, tilapia, Clarias (African catfish), or striped bass, all in Germany are known. Just from the bad forecast for the fish stocks of the world’s oceans Dr.
Meylahn draws hope for the Aqua culture in closed recirculation systems and encourages the entrepreneurial biogas producer: aquaculture is the only way, to create, to meet the demand and to reduce the burden on the environment through fish production compensation. The tendency of the last years shows clearly that steadily increase the prices for high-quality fish and fish products.” Also Dr. Birgit Schmidt Puckhaber, project manager Aqua culture of the German agricultural society (DLG), highlights the importance of fish farming in the “joule”: aquaculture and also producing fish in recirculation systems, are not only by investors from agriculture increasingly perceived, but also by the trade. Germany imported 85 percent of the fish products and can cover only 15 per cent from equity landings and own production. Now is the missing ‘ fish are certainly not completely covered with fish from closed systems, as very much sea fish consumed in Germany. The trade but increasingly calls fresh and above all year-round availability in the required market size and raw materials of excellent quality. This has provided clear aquaculture of the fishing industry.” The full interview is to be read in the “joule” issue January 2009. The magazine is published by German agricultural Publisher (DLV).
