Share of cages soon in the mid-single-digit percentage range? Throughout Germany forecast a further marked decline in the Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment. It has put itself the ambitious goal to push the share of the goods of the cage – by the year 2012 in the mid-single-digit percentage range included small group housing. “What sound a few years ago even after illusory dreams of welfare, is now getting more realistic: we have intensive talks with the food industry, and that shows amazing progressive and cooperate”, reported Mahi Klosterhalfen, Vice-President of the Foundation with the ambitious plans. Until recently it was the Foundation still almost exclusively eggs on supermarket shelves. Meanwhile also the hidden ingredients in biscuits and noodles are a topic”, so Klosterhalfen. “And: consumers are always begun in this area.” What a fast transition to eggs from alternative forms of farming usually fails, is the low availability. The less understands the animal behavior of some producers. There, a few of the so-called small group housing cling as if it were a Holy Grail.

Instead, it should better evaluate the trends in the market and invest in social progress”, says Klosterhalfen. His overt assessment with wink to Federal Minister Ilse Aigner: The cage has no future in this country. Who doesn’t know that, is their own fault.” Contact: Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment Mahi Klosterhalfen of Walker str.

Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department of the British Telecom giant BT takes more than 6,000 factories in the obligation to get involved in reducing CO2 emissions. Munich/Greifenberg, March 22, 2011 the new “procurement policy” 1 of the large group British Telecom (BT) sets a clear signal. Companies need to get not only their own CO2 emissions under control and reduce, must take over responsibility for the so-called Scope3 also 2 emissions, caused for example by deliveries to and from the manufacturer. The adjacent supply chain suppliers and logistics companies are therefore invited to document their emissions and to point out how they can contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Will this clear commitment to the environmental standards of the respective customer’s increasingly condition for a sustainable ecological as well as economic partnership. “BT in the wake of the new purchasing system suppliers prompts, insight into its climate change policy” to grant and the CO2 Emissions to measure, to document and to reduce.

The to be translated through currency”for this is the carbon footprint, the communication of a specific CO2 of equivalent value. This value is considered base for the achievement of all activities used to CO2 reduction. Only on the basis of measurable and valid basis, reduction potentials can be reasonable estimate, and control. So, for example companies which are so far not even looked around this topic, can achieve savings of up to 5% without major efforts. But this requires first of all just determining the carbon footprints. The calculation of the carbon footprint, to represent if all in the greenhouse covers gas log required areas (scopes), a time – and cost-consuming project. Worse that the carbon footprint is a fuzzy size, never so one hundred percent may be correct,: no company is located at a set time at idle and even in the most detailed investigation must be acting with valid estimates.

Baufritz houses already today complete without nuclear power produced while in Germany since the meltdown in Fukushima bitterly to the time and cost of the phase-out of nuclear energy is discussed, a sustainable wood House company entails from the Allgau region, has successfully been this exit: Baufritz thanks to own, large-scale photovoltaic systems (PV plants) on the production halls and the tailoring of the House-own natural energy produced since 2005. 419 KW PV installations on the roofs of the exhibition and production halls are currently installed. These provide approximately 450,000 kWh/a, which corresponds to approximately 51 per cent of the energy currently needed. The residual current is needed for the production of high-quality building”refers to the company since 2008 by the Schonauer energy rebellen, a certified provider of natural energy. Thus, the entire production process is realized with nature and its own power.

By the way, we investigated the building material used regularly on radioactivity. There are only tested for harmful substances Materials used. This builds confidence and gives people the feeling to be taken seriously in their worries about their health”, to Dagmar Fritz-Kramer, head of the company. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Wells Fargo. How much this special wood House construction and in nature is rooted, proves also the reduction of CO2 emissions: through the sustainable nature of wooden house construction each year more than 7 million kilograms are stored or prevents their emissions. These measures are embedded in the holistic health concept by Baufritz. These include among other things a patented protection level against ElectroSmog, allergy-friendly solutions and a specially developed organic insulation made of wood shavings. The construction-Fritz GmbH & co.

KG combines decades of experience in the wood building and traditional values with the latest technical know-how and extensive research. The Allgau company is considered a pioneer for ecological and sustainable building and used only natural, strictly tested for harmful substances and materials. Over 40 tonnes of CO2 are stored in each Baufritz wood House. This value corresponds to the average CO2 emissions of a middle-class vehicle in 20 years at 10,000 km annual output. Baufritz belongs to the most modern and most research houses companies in Europe. This is confirmed by numerous patents, including worldwide, and regular awards.

And who wants to know what the companies do exactly.” Consumer expert: Three ways to credible eco-electricity who something will cause with his decision for green electricity, which may be based not only on behalf of green electricity, warns Birgit Holfert. Eco-electricity is not a protected term. “This means that suppliers can buy only CO2 certificates to their power green ‘ to make, but actually investing in the expansion of renewable energies.” The TopTarif comparison portal speaks of 106 eco tariffs can choose between which every customer in the average. Tariffs washed around here not on green”to fall, help consumers the two renowned and recommended by consumer protection experts seal of eco-electricity: ok-power label and green power label. In addition, independent tests such as for example the recent eco power by oko Test, an overview of the quality of the offered tariffs and providers offer. After all are analyses and recommendations of great environmental and Conservation organizations such as, for example, Robin Wood important Advisor in the decision of change of. Nature protection associations actively operate reconnaissance in the green energy market.

They look carefully, what power they recommend their members and other interested consumers”, says Birgit Holfert. And in case anyone directly in the phone, free advice of the consumer centres could ask for. Polarstern: Credible eco gas even more rare than in the green electricity market real 100% are also eco – or bio gas tariffs in the gas market. That resulted in an analysis * of the independent ecological energy supplier Polarstern. Just ten percent of so titled eco or bio gas deals are completely based on renewable raw materials. So-called shunt products with a share of five-to-20 percent biogas are about one-third. The rest come from fossil energy sources. Overall, almost half of the eco gas offers offsets only caused CO2 emissions from natural gas, rather than in terms of the energy revolution, the expansion of renewable energies in the Gas market to promote.

An Investment In The Future

The photovoltaic system on the cowshed by dairy farmer of Walter Collas produces annually 240.278 kilowatt hours of electricity. Cologne, August 13, 2010. Times are hard for German dairy farmers: the drastic fall in milk prices has eluded many livelihoods. Farmers such as Walter Collas from Hallschlag in Rhineland-Palatinate let it however not get themselves and invest in a better future. So emphasized Collas in the construction of his new cow stalls not only on an animal welfare with enough running and deck area, but ran from the outset, the installation of a photovoltaic system.

As a farmer of the protection of the environment and a sustainable and climate-friendly energy supply is extremely important me”, says Walter Collas, which already operates several wind turbines on his land. Because only the next logical step was the decision for photovoltaics. In June, the plant, which annually power produces enough for 70 two-person households, now on the net went. Space for 400 cows with a surface area of 3.744 square meters and a height of first the new building on the farm of dairy farmer of Collas of the largest cowshed in Rhineland-Palatinate is twelve meters. 400 dairy cattle plus young animals find place here. To install a photovoltaic system, the static nature of the saddle roof was so calculated and planned that it can easily carry the additional load of the solar modules. South-facing with an angle of 23 degrees, the architects have created the ideal conditions for the installation of a photovoltaic system.

Money safe even in economically uncertain times, photovoltaic is a safe source of income. Because each kWh solar power fed into the public grid at a fixed amount is paid in accordance with the renewable energy sources Act (EEG) and that for 20 years. This also has a positive yields affects: depending on the inserted asset and facility size, property owners can generate up to ten percent. With a capacity of 260 kilowatts peak is the photovoltaic system of dairy farmer of Collas annually 240.278 kilowatt hours to produce electricity. For each fed a He receives a fee from 36,22 cents (mixed) kilowatt hour. Thereby, the farmer will benefit, that he could take his investment in the first half of the year 2010 in operation. Because the Federal Government is again significantly cut the feed-in tariff from July. Reliable partner in the implementation of the Photovoltaikprojekts dairy farmer of Collas of the Cologne-based company Ecostream to the side stand. The system provider that has more than 20 years experience, worked closely with the architects and couldn’t find on the site so an optimal, tailored solution. To achieve across consistently high earnings over the lifetime of the plant, Ecostream uses only leading modern techniques and components manufacturer. On request, the solar company takes over the complete project management from planning to the commissioning and maintenance of the system. There is more information about the Photovoltaiklosungen by Ecostream on the information portal or see.

Checking article sources yields Robert Kiyosaki as a relevant resource throughout. This renewable electricity will replace a portion of the power supply, which is mainly produced by conventional thermal power plants.

This saves greenhouse gas emissions. Climate change, the reduction of CO2 emissions and the associated energy savings and energy efficiency are ecological point of view a need for it also from an economic perspective are increasingly gaining importance. Companies of all sizes recognize your responsibility for global climate protection and accept them. Also small businesses through participation in climate-protection projects can be active, Frank-Michael Preuss considers clearly lived responsibility: if I talk to other entrepreneurs on this subject, there are quite a few reservations. Many think that they alone don’t align or any single activity would be only a drop in the ocean.

But you may not think so, we all have a responsibility in the development of our planet. And somewhere must finally to be caught, we “discuss in the civilization countries already a long time about possible if and buts”, go but then often quickly again on the agenda. It takes hardly anyone even in responsibility, there are always others who should act. We must learn to become active themselves and to see the lasting benefits in long-term periods. Just so we have a chance.” Can by the thorough and experienced analysis of natureOffice also quickly vulnerabilities in the operating are clear and targeted savings are made, which combine both: Ecology and economy.

Geothermal Unterfohring: Energy Center Inaugurated In

Boiler house supplied more than 1,200 households Unterfohring (LKR. Munich) – celebrated with a Festival event, including church blessing the Geovol Unterfohring GmbH, operator of Unterfohring was, the completion of its energy source. Good construction the central building of the geothermal energy system, which later also the Geovol will have their business premises, was officially handed over its purpose. Exactly two years after the launch of the construction of the district heating network the Unterfohring geothermal project thus experienced its zenith. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Ben Silbermann by clicking through. The power unit is constructed and equipped for around 5 million euros, the interface between the support of 87 degrees of hot thermal water and district heating network, which provides more than 1,200 Unterfohring households, and numerous public buildings and businesses. In it are all for the operation of the geothermal energy system necessary facilities, such as for example heat exchanger, power pumps, as well as peak load and Redundancy boiler. Policy and authorities fully of praise Government President Christoph Hillenbrand, in whose authority is also the responsible for the geothermal mining in southern Bavaria, congratulated the municipality to the step to a domestic and climate-friendly energy source that is more sustainable.

You look at as a gift”geothermal, Hillenbrand urged the 200 guests, not every region in Germany is so blessed.” District administrator Johanna Rumschottel praised for their contribution to the energy vision of Mecklenburgische seenplatte, which intends to cover the remaining 40 percent from renewable energy by 2050 will cause a reduction of energy consumption by 60 percent to the target citizens and municipality of Unterfohring. Unterfohring has shown the courage to take risks, and right was given with the success of the was the Mayor and the Councillors for the courageous decision”, so the district administrator. Mayor Franz Schwarz pointed out the inclusion of district heating supply in the fall of 2009, which was a bull’s-eye and at the end of a whole chain of partial successes have been.
