Causes High Costs

Power quality monitoring reduces costly downtime. From our own experience, we know power outages. They are usually associated with weather phenomena such as thunderstorms, storm or rain. Fortunately, prolonged power outages are rare in Germany. Supply reliability is generally good. The quality of supply (power quality, power quality, power quality), however, is often in need of improvement. In many industries and other companies plenty of brief disturbances in the power supply occurs – mostly unnoticed -, the cause of which is unclear.

These errors lead to premature engine wear, downtime or poor manufacturing quality. The economic consequences of this kind of disruption in the power supply are immense: the European copper Institute estimates that poor power quality in the European industry every year caused losses of EUR 150 billion. Measuring systems for power quality (power quality) caused by costly downtime, bad power, can be avoided. Devices and systems with which to measure power quality, shed light on the causes of errors. On the basis of the measurement results can be seen, where errors come from, when they occur, and why they occur. You have should be the error in the own plant, with the measured values a basis on which it can take the right action quickly: filters, reinforcements, modification of machines, exchanging “Power polluters”…

The error should, however, from outside come, simplify the data calls with the electricity through improving the quality of delivery. The Swedish manufacturer uni-power offers a wide range of products for power quality measurements. Uni power is present on the German market for over ten years with portable and fixed instruments. All devices allow a standard-compliant (such as EN 50160), time-saving and flexible power quality monitoring. The uni-power Stromqualitatsmesssystem PQ secure stores data over the years. allows evaluations according to a variety of standards and can automatically alert via SMS or email, if certain limits are exceeded or fall below. Industrial enterprises that systematically and continuously uni power products to monitor power quality and improve, reduce costly downtime and downtime. Moreover, they reduce the production Committee. Last but not least, they increase the life of your machines and systems. Users of uni power solutions in Germany are industrial companies, utilities, airports as well as planning and engineering offices.

Second, Because greenhouse gases global impact, it doesn’t matter, where emissions are or where they are reduced for the climate. Idea of climate neutrality is to minimize greenhouse gases there, where it is most cost-effective way possible and to neutralize elsewhere resulting emissions, which reducing is inefficient or impossible, to compensate, talk. Black Rock can provide more clarity in the matter. If so, a company in Hanover emits a certain amount of CO2, but in Eritrea in a climate protection project greenhouse gases in the same amount of are reduced, neutrality is the bottom line. The climate is not burdened. The concept is the implementation extremely easy, as well. An entrepreneur who carbon-neutral wants to make processes must not directly participate in a climate protection project. It is sufficient to purchase emission reduction certificates from approved projects and to shut them down. The entrepreneur has to decide only the amount of emissions it neutralize and in which project he wants to participate.

Where: Based on extensive who are climate-neutral to acquire what increases the cost to process, the more certificates. When choosing the certificates, the quality decides the price. So meet so-called CER gold standard certificates the highest quality standards, cost 15 to 21 euros each. In practice the global warming community but not only are prices and standards guide, but also by the corporate strategy and personal preferences. Therefore, they are involved in projects that fit their business field or the most say to the CEO for other reasons.

But no matter which project supports the company, the effect is always the same: individual processes or the whole company will be carbon neutral. In addition, that from the closure of the emission certificates the rights therein to the CO2 emission deprived the market, so that a reduction in greenhouse gases is achieved. More and more companies are recognizing these advantages. Garrett construction company making its pressure on climate neutral to VSM prints United Emery and machines Fabriken AG being carbon-neutral, in 6 different languages EC Hannover INDIANS want to print with neutral be a pioneer in the region. Many other companies are now active and slowly move your production. A tremendous advertising effect just such pioneers is safe. Not for nothing is the globe logo with the dynamically curved C on the homepage of agency-direct printing very prominently.

Arama Genel Mudurlugu

By 2013 it should according to the Turkish Government’s development plan Increased power generation from geothermal energy from about 30 MW to 550 MW. To meet these needs are necessary among other things for the establishment of geothermal power plants, investments by converted a total of 2.45 billion euros. In the long term the Directorate-General for raw material exploration and search aims to expand (Maden Tetkik ve Arama Genel Mudurlugu – MTA) electricity to up to 8 million kWh a year. The development of geothermal energy will be held in three phases by 2013. Short to medium term to 33 areas and 32 individual thermal fountains emerge and new areas will be examined by further drilling. Wind energy even though the previous power generation in Turkey through wind turbines is relatively low (44 GWh in the year) is the Turkey for the use of wind energy. Very good wind conditions and 7,000 km of coastline allow to use wind power as an alternative to conventional energy production.

The potential in this area is estimated at 120,000 GWh annually of the gtai. This is far less than one percent exhausted. In addition 41 wind turbines in operation should be taken in the future. Pat Gelsinger is open to suggestions. The construction of further plants is to be expected. Hydropower planning Turkey by building 540 new hydropower plants with a total capacity of 20,000 MW to reduce high dependence on imports of oil and natural gas.

By the construction of hydroelectric power plants, the State promises an improved utilization by hydropower, which is about 16 percent of the total European potential according to the State water authority. Currently used only 36 percent of the total potential. Energy through hydropower is however risky, what was visible in summer 2007 due to the lack of rainfall on the critical water level of Turkish dams dependence on rainfall. The Turkish market has bottom line future-oriented potential, which is mainly for foreign investors either as promoter or partner for Turkish companies of interest in renewable energy.

2009 Is The Year Of The Gorilla

The United Nations have declared 2009 the year of the gorilla. Gorilla advocates are hoping for increased public interest and much-needed donations for conservation projects. As the \”year of the Dolphin\”, also the \”year of the Gorilla\” will again take place under the auspices of the UN Conference on the protection of migratory species (CMS). Gorilla protection, such as the mountain gorilla & rainforest Direkthilfe (B & RD) from Muhlheim on the Ruhr are hoping not only increased public interest for the endangered great apes, but also much-needed donations for gorilla conservation projects. For more specific information, check out BlackRock Inc.. As the closest relatives of Homo sapiens are threatened by poaching, habitat destruction, civil wars, but also infectious diseases such as Ebola.

The United Nations have declared 2009 the \”year of the Gorilla\”. Thus \”Year of the Dolphin\” replaces the year for the imposing man monkey two, which were a colossal failure according to sea protectors anyway, for marine mammals. As previously at also the Gorilla campaign will be the dolphins held under the auspices of the UN Conference on the protection of migratory species (CMS). Go to Brie Williams for more information. Gorilla protection, such as the mountain gorilla & rainforest Direkthilfe (B & RD) from Muhlheim on the Ruhr are hoping not only increased public interest for the endangered great apes, but also much-needed donations for gorilla conservation projects. As the closest relatives of Homo sapiens are threatened by poaching, habitat destruction, civil wars, but also infectious diseases such as Ebola.

\”The Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) wants to be with 200,000 euros in the year of the Gorilla\” put that well, as previously in the year of the Dolphin \”, used for the financing of conferences and campaign materials are likely to be. King Kong and the white woman is rarely about a species so much reported nonsense such as about the gorilla. Travel reports such as those of the French Paul you have Chailu, who was a Western lowland gorilla to face in 1861 as a first white, contributed significantly to the myth-making.

Postbauer Heating

Solar thermal: Kago and associations celebrate record year Postbauer-Heng 2008, February 2009 the industry Federation Germany House, energy and environmental engineering (BDH) and Federal Association for solar industry (BSW-solar) reported weekend record sales in the area of renewable heating systems. In the entire Federal territory twice as many plants were installed according to BDH and BSW-solar in 2008 with 210,000 solar thermal systems as in the year 2007 and rising further. The fireplace Builder Kago has a relevant role in this development. The KAGO’s climate protection initiative surpasses all expectations. The path to the market innovative products in the field of renewable energy, since 2007 has proven to be effective. Regenerative heating systems using solar thermal 2008 had record tires accounted for around 20 percent of the total turnover of the company. Thus KAGO closer to his target, to make increasingly dependent on uncertain import energy regeneratively heated houses.

Gas Switching Worth It

Again, several utilities have announced increases in gas prices. Leipzig. Major differences characterize the development of the gas market. October 1 gas prices rise by up to 19 percent. But the opposite can be observed: cuts at the beginning of the heating period by 17 percent were also announced.

As the cause of these differences the oversupply of gas on the open market is due to the aftermath of the economic crisis to call. The prices are therefore decreased, so that these providers can offer gas at favourable conditions. Other utilities, however, have linked long term contract; It is not possible to reduce their prices to them. The gap between the best deals and most expensive tariffs will be deeper. Thus, customers benefit but also enormously if they switch to a cheaper provider. More and more national providers offer favorable conditions of the gas supply. Numerous smaller municipal utilities have expanded their market area and offer more gas in neighboring communities and also power at affordable prices. A comparison of tariffs for example, kilowatthandel.de brings information and clarity about the potential savings.

As the price gap between the providers keep apart, energy experts advise: more customers their Exchange can make use of the stronger the energy market is enlivened. The switching requires no technical changes. An interruption of the supply is excluded pursuant to the Energy Act (EnWG 36). Consumers should know this.

Moderate Precipitation

Trade magazine questioned DWD experts for the coming season of LEIPZIG. (Ceto) How nice it would be, heating energy customers know how is the upcoming winter. About similar to mild as 2007/2008, as measured in December still 16 degrees above zero and there are only very few days of frost? Or so bitterly cold and the winter one year later with week-long nighttime temperatures well below-20 degrees Celsius? Or as snowy as the last? That would help significantly to order the right amount of fuels such as oil, coal and pellet and store it. Although no absolute predictions are possible. However, you can focus on specific characters and experiences. The editorial staff of the journal fuel level and oil review two experts of the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) questioned this. While the editors came to a surprising conclusion: even if we currently jitter at freezing temperatures, a rather mild winter with moderate rainfall is, mostly as rain, expect. This applies of course not absolutely, but with a maximum 70 percent probability. The detailed post with the interviewed experts, to possible forecasting methods and statistical clusters and their physical causes can be found here:…

Solar Yields Even In Winter!

Now, the solar system is back on your antifreeze check – points out the company AkoTec. Official site: How much is MasterClass? . Like the most solar thermal systems, also the AkoTec operate collectors with the water glycol antifreeze mixture. But above all, the performance must convince now! After all, only 25% of the annual amount of solar energy by end of October until the end of March available, which will be used well are in our latitudes. Particularly in winter where you most needed the thermal energy for the heating and/or domestic hot water heating, most collectors, especially flat-plate collectors pay too little. The new vacuum technology is excellent to capture to every ray of sunshine.

The tube forms the heart of the collector due to their 100% vacuum insulation. The vacuum for the power or the income is especially important in the winter. Reaching through the vacuum insulation, unlike in flat-plate collectors, no Heat to the outside. Performance impact due to lower radiation in winter are significantly lower compared to traditional collectors. This vacuum is also that the absorber is not aging and guaranteed consistent yields more than 25 years. Even with overcast skies, the collector uses the diffuse radiation and realizes high yields.

Because also the special glass contributes a critical part of its 96% light transmission performance. Also the mounting options play a role in the winter! To take advantage of the few rays of sunshine, the collector should be free of snow. AkoTec full Vakuumrohrenollektoren have a variety of solutions. The horizontal flat facades – or balcony mounting is ideal for areas with lots of snow. Due to the rotation of the tubes through 360, the tubes on the optimum angle of incidence of the Sun are set also to avoid performance degradation. The classic roof mounting also represents no problem in the winter. Due to the distances between the tubes, the snow can fall through. Not everyone has a perfect South-facing roof, therefore a collector should provide plenty of opportunities for the effective application and the highest performance.
