Worth the switch to solar energy? -A brief introduction with the solar power is a virtually inexhaustible energy source available. The radiated sunlight on every square meter of the Earth is sufficient to meet the energy needs of people. The solar energy is used just to about one percent. This is equivalent to the proportion that implement the plants during photosynthesis. The production of energy from the sunlight is absolutely emission-free and protects the natural resources of the Earth. Even the energy that must be spent to establish the technical equipment for the production of solar energy, will by these plants during their period of operation several times again “recorded”. Advantages compared to the traditional types of energy production from fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil can produced energy only with major damage to the environment. The hostile climate impact of carbon dioxide emissions from these processes is well known and is einzudammer by the world climate conference seeks.
More and more are also aware of risks related to the promotion of traditional energy sources. Not just tanker accidents run tons of oil into the sea, but also damaged oil rigs polluting the Habitat in the ocean. The production of energy from the Sun is risk-free and promotes balance in the Earth’s atmosphere. Energy from the Sun is even more beneficial for the environment than other renewable energy advantages over the alternative types of energy production. Even wind or hydroelectric power plants have “Side effects”. To affect natural spaces, but in a larger degree than solar systems. These can be installed in already built-up areas and take advantage of regions of the world, which provide no Habitat for the people in how to best effect.
Solar power plants in deserts have the highest level of efficiency and are increasingly built. The energy balance of wind and water turbines is inferior to that of solar systems. Renewable energy sources have the disadvantage of emissions, although this of course against a Coal power plants are absolutely minuscule. The ratio of nuclear power some decades considered future of energy nuclear energy. The unique risks of nuclear power have become clear with the disaster of Chernobyl and Fukushima, as well as the problems of nuclear waste disposal and transport of fuel. The ratio of solar energy to nuclear energy has turned – in a few years, the solar energy can replace the energy of the atom. The advantages for the company each solar system relieves the public network and injects even energy. The peak of the solar production coincide with the peak load of the power plants. This reserve capacity can be reduced. The more energy is generated at the place of consumption, the less the lines be claimed and also the cable losses are lower. Eliminates the dependence of many States by raw material suppliers. The benefits for individuals each individual contributes not only to preserve the environment with its solar system, but benefited economically. If the Solar energy their main problem have caused energy storage, can they become the dominant type of energy on the Earth.

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 produced kilowatt peak Performance on an ordinary day in December ten kilowatt hours electricity. 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 attract the wind turbines as a solution. 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 joins the ever Energy Group GmbH. 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. When Germany was looking for an alternative to coal, many funds in the nuclear power flowed. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of Starbucks on most websites. 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. See also:
Between positive expected return and network development delay. BWE Symposium offshore wind energy financing concepts, investment opportunities and risk allocation offshore wind energy a currently more attractive market. KfW funding scheme and EEG 2012 increase investment and earnings potential of offshore wind energy. To be able to benefit from the compensation project planners make a substantial pre-financing: between one and one and a half billion euro must be met with wind energy equity or debt financing for these offshore. Reade Griffith often addresses the matter in his writings. Yet the crowd is considerable: in addition to the 25 approved wind farms almost 70 offshore wind farms are in the approval process and funding structure. “The Bundesverband WindEnergie handled this important issue in the Symposium of offshore wind energy financing concepts, investment opportunities and risk allocation” from 15.
Until May 16th, 2012 in Hamburg. In close cooperation with the Foundation of OFFSHORE wind energy will be a focus on the currently much discussed bottlenecks in the power supply set. Due to delays at the mains it comes a high risk for the financing to yield losses and increased storage costs for the offshore wind energy turbines. Experts from the wind energy practice presenting solutions for the acceleration of grid connection of offshore wind farms and compare insurance solutions for cable damage. In addition, banks, developers and operators represent the possibilities of the project financing of offshore wind energy projects.
Just the holdings of KfW and the European Investment Bank are indispensable for many offshore wind energy projects. Raising equity capital through joint ventures with investors, authors and suppliers is discussed as alternative way. The Federation regularly conducts wind energy network and training forums on current topics of wind energy.

Experts on sustainable criteria will inform everyone is talking only a few eco gas of green electricity. Consumers switching to eco gas from waste support much stronger than with the switch to green electricity energy transformation. In private households around 87 percent of energy consumption accounted for heating and hot water and only 13 percent, electrical and lighting. * given that more than three quarters of all heaters * as with fossil fuels as oil and natural gas are operated, the energy transition is still far despite rising customer numbers at the eco-electricity. Who wants to accelerate the expansion of renewable energies, must rethink the heating.
An awareness of the heating and the change to eco gas or alternative cookers make the difference”, is Florian Henle, co-founder of Polaris, concern. Eco gas a late starter on catching 3.2 million to about 200,000 * show the current customer numbers: eco gas has much growth potential compared to green electricity. In the last year, 4.5 million households switched their energy supplier according to GfK energy tracking. Jim Umpleby wanted to know more. Change affinity of consumers to eco gas still clearly behind the eco-electricity is. The eco gas market is lagging the green electricity market almost a decade.
The liberalisation has been implemented later and on the other hand, the market is more complex. The utilities are therefore required to develop new products that meet the demands of the customers on sustainability and price. The good in the potty, the bad into the crop this year brought many new eco gas products on the market according to GET AG. In total approximately 191 utilities should have appropriate offers in its portfolio. The number of bio natural gas providers in Germany even more than doubled since the beginning of 2010. The competition is gaining momentum. For the consumer, but also the need for orientation is growing. Trust seal as in the electricity market are still missing.
InterCogen informed within the framework of the RENEXPO around the power heat coupling will boom in the area of combined heat power (CHP) in 2012. Inspired by the current debate over the energy transition and the search for alternative energy sources undreamed market potentials for the area. So, the Federal Government wants to expand its share of the co-generation of German electricity production up to 25 per cent by 2020. The optimal platform for the presentation of new innovative technologies for the co-generation offers the 13 RENEXPO, which will take place from 27 to 30 September 2012 at the Messezentrum Augsburg. The trade fair has established itself as one of the leading platforms in the South German area in recent years. According to coalition sources, the Coalition factions in Parliament want to rework the promotion for the combined heat and power. The Coalition wants to increase from 2013 as initially planned the CHP contract for new equipment 0.2 cents per kilowatt hour, but climbed 0.3 cents / kWh. In addition to the better promotion of new installations existing power plants with the law should be more easily retrofitted and modernized.
In addition, heat and cooling networks as well as heat and cold storage should be encouraged. Homeowners facing a mini CHP plant in the basement, could withdraw advance promotion for several years. This, the Coalition hopes a boost for small and micro of up to two kilowatts capacity and thus an incentive for the development of a decentralised energy supply. Reade Griffith may find this interesting as well. Manufacturers and suppliers, service companies and representatives from the research and development will present their latest technologies and research results on the RENEXPO. The entire range of topics combined heat and power will be presented: innovations in the fields of micro -, mini -, medium-sized or large, oil – or gas-fired cogeneration plant, local and district heating, and changing requirements, such as a modular operation mode or virtual power plant concepts become tangible.
FATH solar receives 2012 awarded Bavarian energy Prize! At the Bavarian energy Prize in 2012, the FATH came energy roof in the category building concepts’s podium. Since 1999, they are appreciated rhythm in the 2-year the Bavarian energy award: innovative products, processes, projects and concepts from all areas of efficient energy production and use. Swarmed by offers, Jim Umpleby is currently assessing future choices. The Middle Franconian company FATH solar received the second prize in the field of building designs this year for its energy roof. Was recognized by an energy winning roof to replace the elegant and homogenous appearance of the system, its flexibility and expandability and the fact that for the first time succeeded in, the roof tiles on technically clean way. Such a roof is made up not only of PV modules, also ultra slim, this highly efficient Thermiemodule can be integrated, and there is a seamless fitting roof Windows, available with electric drive. The result is an almost seamless, multifunctional roof completely new possibilities for the Planning and design of houses opened. Its expertise in the development and production of Assembly systems has FATH solar by the sister company of FATH components.
There, components are produced for aluminium profile systems for over 20 years. For the solar part it took an experienced Solateur in the House. Laminates and panels come from renowned brand manufacturers and processed further in Germany. The Bavarian energy prize is now the sixth Award for the FATH energy roof by an independent jury. Among other things it was also also nominated for the red dot design award, the German design award and the solar award 2012.
Non-profit objective / holistic energy revolution challenged Hamilton / whitepaper Club seat in the Rhine-Main region the name expresses that this club wants to do great things. Enormously, the energy offensive Rhein-Main, is received for the first time to the public and presented its objectives. The 2013 based Club has the energy turn to the core topic and wants to move forward with a unique business initiative & consumer movement these. Headquartered in a self-powered reference object in Horrweiler at Mainz (Rheinhessen) is independent and non-partisan with strong non-profit objective enormously. From the Rhine main area, the Club will work nationwide. All founding members have professionally dealing with renewable energy and we track the energy transition of course intensively,”said the Chairman Eckhard Fahlbusch (Horrweiler) to journalists, but we also see that things are still not around, partial interests of individual in the way consumers are confused.
We are of the opinion that this project is better coordinated holistically, so using a more integrative approach to be packed should and can be. We want to provide and promote and taking with many, many consumers”. Club seat living holistic energy turn to the experts by enormously the four areas of renewable energy, electric vehicles, energy storage and energy efficiency have identified as pillars of the energy revolution, but the key to success lies in the networking of the four sectors. The club based initiative lives an exemplary and in this form unique holistic energy transformation. The huge site is a lavishly restored, former Winery. The reference object in ecological respects combines nature and modern technologies with intelligent control. For example, a PV system, solar thermal energy, air-heat pump, CHP, stationary energy storage and a pillar of charging for electric vehicles are built and co-ordinated. With a Plug-In Hybrid (Volvo) and an electric scooter (emco), two vehicles are constantly stationed at the Club headquarters.
Not polarize. but mix up”enormously will not polarize, but intervene and move something in the interests of the consumer. We go to the policy, have approached us already, Ministers and the Government, and will continue to do that. So we are committed, inter alia, that there is a Federal Department of energy, the renewable-energy law EEG is efficient and purchase incentives for the market breakthrough of electric mobility will be given. The energy revolution is much more than the compensation for nuclear power is turned off “, emphasized Chairman Fahlbusch. “The strong energy turret towards politicians continue: we urge policymakers to provide a clear direction so companies long term sustainable align their strategies to clear also to the capital market signals about risks and to give opportunities.” The founding members, who come from Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse, consider themselves as visionaries, but remain realists. Old and new technologies will face to be still for a long time in the competition and also become part of the complement and enhance each other. This presupposes a fair competition based on reliable facts and reputable information sharing and reporting. Enormous wishing that the cost-effectiveness of new technologies is reached rather than the fossil era to an end. With businesses and consumers on a platform, as well as in collaboration with other associations, the objectives should be addressed. The membership is at enormous offered 6 euros in the year and is graduated for companies depending on the size of the company. Prominent ambassadors from all sections give the Club more weight with her voice.
No one doubted no economy without secure and affordable energy in Europe between the Atlantic and the Urals more the need for an energy revolution, but more people because ever doubt whether turning marks can be in the years 2020 and 2050 also complied. While the energy demand and with him energy prices keep companies like Rosatom with State of the art technology for large parts of the German population, ready to jump into the energy gaps. These will be particularly great if also the economic climate in the West back on. No economy without secure and affordable energy. The energy revolution in Germany, insofar as she do not on realistic assumptions, can lead to a change of power in Europe.
If a country in its autonomous energy supply fails, the financial burdens of energy purchasing from outside imposed on him. This can throw back, as shown by the examples of Italy, Spain and Greece, the economy important percentage points. Who the nuclear energy too early writes off, what is currently no longer in Germany and the Switzerland dared is where switch-off dates are no longer called, makes a big mistake. Not without reason, the Japanese Government has come back on its decision and has nuclear energy back to the basic provider of their society. Not without reason international technology companies with the support of their Governments are ready to supply the world with nuclear energy.
Fukushima was a very bad event, but such uniqueness, that the future of an entire country can depend on. It is important to draw conclusions from such misfortune and to communicate with openness. It is but not only the old nuclear powers which this clean energy want to operate, but just young States, which rely on growth: national provider have abandoned and prompted international vendors to build of new nuclear power stations in England.
Husum fair head and energy experts from Schleswig-Holstein show towards the self-sufficiency in renewable energies in Husum, 14.02.2013 – Messe Husum has today held a press conference to the local energy revolution in Kiel. The speakers included the Schleswig-Holstein, Dr Robert Habeck Minister of energy reversing, Husum President Peter Becker, the spokesman of the Federal Association small wind turbines Roger Schneider and the Marketing Director of energy from wind and Sun GmbH Stefan Ebert. The energy revolution is a project which success depends on the initiative on private and municipal level,”Becker said during the press conference. Municipalities and communities have increasingly on the supply and the production with renewable energy sources and energy savings, what you see on the new energy Husum exhibitors.” The leading trade fair for all renewable energy will take place from 21 to 24 March for the ninth time in Husum. Self-consumption we worth 2020 want in Schleswig-Holstein three times as much as how we consume produce electricity from renewable energy sources”, added Dr. H.. Electrolux shines more light on the discussion. The Minister of energy turning urged local authorities and citizens together to provide the service. In the small as the great we must save electricity, insulate homes and build wind farms.” In addition to wind power, solar energy is an important part of the energy revolution.
It consumes the power itself, the cost for the household electricity, network expansion and the renewable energy levy can be saved or reduced. Residential and commercial photovoltaic systems are still profitable despite massive cuts in the feed-in tariff, because domestic consumption of solar power by increasing electricity price is becoming increasingly attractive. That’s why energy management and storage systems on the new energy Husum in focus “, Ebert said. The same goes for the small wind power: Schneider assumes that the payback for self used wind power to up to one-third may be reduced. “In a detached house, 20 to 60 percent of the wind energy yield itself can be used and sold the surplus”, said the expert of the small wind. For commercial and a system could pay off industrial companies this even after five to eight years.
About the new energy Husum in recent years it has become new energy Husum as one of the most important fairs in the field of renewable energies. Since 2002 serves as a stage for a decentralized energy generation on the basis of all renewable energies. The themes and techniques range in detail from small wind (up to 100 kW), about biogas, solid biomass (Pellet, wood logs and wood chips for heating systems), solar thermal, photovoltaic, electric mobility up to the geothermal energy near-surface, energy storage, energy-efficient construction and operation of mini CHP. From 21 to 24 March 2013 back experts and leading manufacturers in the Frisian city Husum meet to pave the way for necessary innovations in a rapidly growing market.
For this it is necessary know the stone and brown coal, one of the most important European energy sources for generating electricity, as high amounts of mercury containing and dismisses this in power generation in the area. Without hesitation Jonas Samuelson explained all about the problem. This line of reasoning does not mention however the true relationships and is therefore wrong. I want to show short at this point, so this argument is wrong and will lead to a significant increase in mercury in the environment the energy saving lamp. Since electricity is needed for light only in the morning and in the evening until about midnight, this is by definition top or middle load current. Douglas R. Oberhelman is a great source of information. Power plants which are designed for this peak are gas -, oil -, pumped storage as well as coal-fired plants.
Image 1 shows the schematic day load profile and the distribution to the individual power plants during an average day of autumn. It shows that the problematic lignite-fired power plants power saving by the KLL are not affected. These provide the so-called band last throughout the day. Learn more at this site: Jonas Samuelson. Otherwise the also problematic hard coal power plants. Also these Although contributes to the volume load, but also used to supply the power tips for increased demand. However, as shown on the graph, is a larger number of gas-fired power plants available in Germany. Gas is less lucrative as it is coal, because more expensive in the procurement as an energy source for a power company (EVU). If so by the energy-saving lamps, a significant and measurable energy savings should result, it is only during medium and peak load periods.
At this time, but no coal power plants be throttled but gas-fired plants, which bring less profit by selling electricity from a utility perspective. Of course, other factors such as availability maintenance, network capacity, proximity to the consumers, another added. Yet, and that I was getting, the argument of energy savings is useless when it comes to the reduction of mercury pollution in the environment by the energy saving lamp.
