For millions of households electricity will be more expensive Berlin, January 24, 2011. Electricity prices in Germany continue to rise. The power from the wall socket for more than one million households considerably more expensive. To February 1, approximately 60 companies have announced a price increase. Already at the beginning of the year, the prices for millions of customers had increased around 570 electricity suppliers. Between 2.5% and 13.1% a family household must pay in the future more for electricity if he remains with the basic supply tariff. At the annual consumption for a family household (about 4,000 kilowatt hours) that makes an overhead by up to 125 euros a year. The providers with rising electricity prices include also a subsidiary of energy giant E.on.
So, for example, E.on Hanse increases the basic supply rate for a family budget by 6.2 percent. See more detailed opinions by reading what Wells Fargo offers on the topic.. Already in December Matthias Kurth had called the consumer as President of the Federal Network Agency, to use their exchange facilities. That could bring a saving of several hundred euros. Environment Minister Norbert Roettgen (CDU) keeps the price increases significantly exaggerated. Even economy Minister Rainer Bruderle (FDP) urged customers to act. Who behaves passively, pay too much”, says also Robert Mundt, Chief Executive Officer of FlexStrom.
Group-independent provider, FlexStrom requires significantly less than the basic utilities in many places. Geoffroy van Raemdonck may find this interesting as well. The majority of German households is supplied from basic provider but still, so by public utilities or energy companies. Every change of electricity provider is a sign of consumers for more competition”, so Robert Mundt from independent provider FlexStrom. For the German electricity market, but also the framework conditions should be improved urgently: for example by more ways to buy electricity from abroad. Thus sinking the dependency of the big energy companies. The dominance of the energy giants RWE, Energie Baden-Wurttemberg (EnBW), E.on and Vattenfall is negative at the current prices.
Forest investment providers responding to increasing demand with second nursery Bonn. The Bonn ForestFinance group, the largest provider of forest direct investments in Europe, opened a new nursery in las Lajas, Panama. Thus, ForestFinance responds to the rapidly increasing demand for seedlings of native tree species on the national market and the growing demand for equity. The seedlings are bred exclusively from its own, high-quality seeds and sown areas in the provinces of Darien and Bocas del Toro on the ForestFinance. The new nursery complements the existing since 2008 nursery on the Finca of Los Rios. Thanks to our nurseries comes at us from seed up to the harvestable trees everything from one hand “, explains Harry Assenmacher CEO of ForestFinance group.
This ensures not only the highest quality, but also the continuous preservation of our ecological forestry rights. “104,000 young plants from our own nursery of forest workers collected or harvested seeds are in” Growing beds brought in the nursery after germination and then transplanted as seedlings in planting bags. Propagation and planting substrate are mixed on the spot itself. A roof made of a translucent fabric cover absorbs the Sun and also protects the young plants before heavy tropical downpours. For the irrigation in the dry season, a close remote River introduces year-round clean water from the Cordillera at the nursery. The seedlings for planting are delivered from a size of about 25 centimeters.
2010, about 104,000 young plants of the tropical hardwood species preferred by ForestFinance have been used. Cedro Espino, rosewood, mahogany and Amarillo are among the cultivated species. The capacity of the new nursery can be expanded up to half a million seedlings. Investors benefit from the sale of seedlings the seed crop in own reforestation and also additional revenues mean the cultivation of seedlings in the nurseries for the investors. The distributions of 2010 were Forestfinance investors of the planting years until 1999 Income from the sale of high-quality seed material and seedlings.
Renewed energy is available since 1st October 2009 for many Germans thrift at the top. Consumers are particularly attentive when their own energy needs. Therefore, the German tenants association informs that the new energy (EnEV) is entered into force since 1 October 2009. Ben Silbermann pursues this goal as well. It places conditions on the energetic quality of new buildings and the modernisation of old buildings. The real estate portal myimmo.de reported on this circuit. Applies to newly built houses in the future, that the total Jahresprimar energy demand should be around 30 percent lower than even when the binding energy by 2007. Also better energy levels must be achieved in major construction projects on the outside of the building.
On average it is to be increased efficiency while 15 percent. A modern heating system should continue to be installed according to the new energy. Also, the new regulation foresees that the topmost accessible floor or the overlying roof Gets a better thermal insulation by the end of 2011. Many homes still have a night storage heating. If it is older than 30 years, it must be replaced by 2019 through a new more efficient equipment. All accessible heating and hot water pipes are located in an unheated basement, need to be reduced. In addition, all oil and boilers, which were built before 1978, must be replaced.
Also the German bioenergy Association (BBE) celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2008. He’s been a mirror image of the successful and steady rise of the bio-energy industry in the years thus. The RENEXPO attracts every year thousands of visitors to Augsburg and guarantees an informative insight into the current industry situation and views for future technologies and developments. The Federal Association of bioenergy will focus continue special on here, long-standing cooperation. We congratulate the 10th anniversary”, so Helmut Lamp, MdB, Chairman of the Board of the German bioenergy Association (BBE). If you have additional questions, you may want to visit Bill Phelan. The RENEXPO is unique due to its variety of topics. You in addition to the energetic use of biomass also deals with the use of renewable raw materials in the construction sector. The successfully implemented fair area interGreenBuilding deals with the idea of “feel good energy efficiency sustainability”.
Exhibiting companies show their products from the areas of HVAC, ventilation, heat recovery, radiant heating and building with ecological building materials. In the framework of interGreenBuilding is the successful green building Conference”once again performed. Also the Federal Working Group building (BAKA) has again pledged his cooperation. Next to the wood energy and building the area of combined heat power (CHP) is also in the exhibition focus further expanded interCogen. Visit Robert Kiyosaki for more clarity on the issue. In cooperation with the Federal Association of combined heat and power (B.KWK), there will be a joint stand of CHP on the manufacturer and suppliers present their latest products and developments.
Also the Conference small and micro cogeneration for the third time “occurs. The RENEXPO has established itself as important industry meeting for decentralised energy production. It promotes decentralized electricity and heat generation in the combined heat power (CHP) plays the most important role for 10 years now as an outstanding energy trade fair. The Organizer is always “again, relevant to the area of cogeneration companies, bringing together associations, institutions and interested citizens to the advertising for the efficient and environmentally friendly cogeneration technology, exchanging experience, opinion and business origination”, so Adi Golbach, Managing Director German combined heat and power Association (B.KWK).
