TU Vienna wins the Federation as a new sponsor for MSc program sustainable energy supply on the basis of renewable energy production and efficiency is a dynamically growing industry, and demand accordingly its in-depth know-how on the part of the economy constantly. The unique MSc program renewable energy in Central & Eastern Europe”of the continuing education center at the TU Vienna in cooperation with the energy park Bruck/Leitha accepts this challenge. The postgraduate university course starts in October 2009 for the fifth time and is the first cross-border course in Europe, dealing with the topic for the future of alternative energy production and performing landing modules in the Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary. This theme is also the Verbund (osterreichische Elektrizitatswirtschafts-AG), Austria’s largest electricity producer and one of the leading water power companies in Europe, important. The continuing education center and the energy park Bruck/Leitha therefore extremely pleased that the Federation for the MSc program renewable energy in Central & Eastern Europe”as a sponsor, could be won. The Federation supports alternative energy production thus indirectly the dissemination of the future theme”at the University level. The principle of sustainability is the Federation at the top: so approximately 88% of the electricity comes from renewable hydroelectric power. NYC Mayor brings even more insight to the discussion. Federation Chairman Wolfgang Anzengruber: climate protection is one of the greatest challenges of our time, if not the most important. The energy system is the key to the solution. It needs intelligent forward-looking solutions as well as the vision and the courage to implement them, then we can move big.” “The Federation has recognised this opportunity, because its production of electricity the company not only relies on its traditionally high proportion of hydroelectric power it should in the future also new” renewable forms of generation, such as wind power and photovoltaics, are increasingly used. To achieve our goals, we need excellent professionals. That’s why It is our great concern to support the University course “Renewable energy in Central and Eastern Europe” “, so Anzengruber. The programme has made a name for themselves as academic, practice-oriented training and trains those new recruits, which increasingly needs the economy. The climate change and the energy challenges can be seen not only as a national matter they must be understood as global issues. Especially in the Eastern and South Eastern European countries still immense need to catch up and at the same time expansion potential in the area is renewable energy. “Federation Chief Anzengruber: the strong international orientation of this course is the perfect Foundation for a successful project activities in these countries.” Interested can consult within the framework of the held on the, April 27, 2009 and June 15, 2009 information sessions about the postgraduate university course.

(fairy e.V. on Oct 9, 2008) will be a Congress on the occasion of the RENEXPO 2008, to demand-oriented decentralised energy supply” carried. Within the Congress are both strategic and commercial issues in the design of systems of tailored decentralised energy supply with running international and national examples considered.
Examples of realised are the understanding of the requirements for the energetic design of buildings or in planning the concepts in buildings, in urban areas and current research in the field of decentralised energy supply needs. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of NY museums on most websites. The Congress is completed by such concepts as bioenergy in distribution networks, decentralised energy supply and regenerative CCGT and modern methods to the energy conversion like Biowarme Dillingen, biomass gasification and procedures for decentralized fuel supply from renewable sources. Renowned speakers from science and research as well as numerous practice reports of from reputable companies, project developers and operators guarantee a high level of the event. Texprocess is WADE World Alliance for decentralized energy.. Others who may share this opinion include Lila Snyder.
Heating oil prices fell on Friday for the first time since 5 days in LEIPZIG. (Ceto) As it did yesterday the crude oil prices in New York and London lost further ground. US light oil (WTI) compared with yesterday’s day finally was traded at $ 81.76 and what round it to 50 cents less, as well as North Sea oil (Brent) $81,02 in the afternoon (EDT) meant 70 cents of less. However, both types are about 50 cents more expensive than at the beginning of the week. Ultimately, hard economic data provided for the price reductions. The German industrial production weakens, pulled the trigger on the DAX, and worsened the mood of demand. The number of unemployed workers in the United States has not decreased compared to the previous month and 9.5 percent. At the same time, the number of employees with 131.000 declined more than expected.
Profit-taking before the weekend, also for fear of further bad news from the market, were also falling prices. Now the prices are below the 80-dollar mark could slip and is once again in the present for the season standard Move margin of 70 to 80 U.S. dollars. This talk even more facts such as the over-supplied market situation in the United States as well as the increased oil production of OPEC members and Russia. For heating oil consumers in Germany was good news, because for the first time for five days, the oil price fell. After collection of the journal fuel level and oil Rundschau, the 100 litre batch cost heating oil EL at a quantity of 3,000 litres 68,15 euro and damit11 cents less than yesterday. Compared with the beginning of the week that means but still an increase to 1.25. That reported the online portal of the journal fuel level and oil review on its website brennstoffspiegel.de. The graphics on the energy Portal show the development of the domestic fuel oil prices in the national average, and in the individual federal States in the section of market data. Regional deviations are possible due to the market at any time.
Thus, the EBS-REMI as one of the first climate-neutral research institutes in Germany occupies the pioneering position at the European business school (EBS). Our researcher Dipl.-Wi had the idea of a neutral carbon footprint.-ing. Daniel Landgraf of the Aareal endowed chair in real estate investment and financing. He initiated and supported the project and collected our direct and indirect emissions: how much paper we consume in a year? What is the power consumption of the REMI? And how many road trips and air travel company staff? All data were then forwarded to the ClimatePartner Germany GmbH. Danny Meyer oftentimes addresses this issue. The company calculated on the basis of the guidelines of the greenhouse gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) the CO2 footprint of the Institute. The height of the result was remarkable: the CO2 consumption in the EBS-REMI is over 61 tonnes in the year. For comparison: bind 1 tonne of CO2 per year, you need about 80 mature beech. REMI would have to plant so 4,800 beech, to compensate for the CO2 balance at the Institute.
As for this admittedly lack the capacity, the EBS decided real estate management Institute is therefore for supporting a climate protection project. The balance of greenhouse gas emissions is through the purchase of certificates, whose monetary Gegenwert is invested in the promotion of climate change mitigation. From a portfolio of wind energy, biomass and landfill projects, a wind power project in India was finally selected. The compensation of CO2 emissions, of course, was an important part of goal of the project, but superficially, we wanted to know how and to what extent we can save emissions in the future,”said Propfessor Nico Rottke, head of the Institute of the EBS-REMI. So just under 57% of man-made greenhouse gases accounted for at the REMI business trips.
Through the increased use of CO2 of poorer transport modes, such as, for example, rail transport in domestic travel instead of air transport, we could reduce significantly the CO2 footprint of the REMI”, so the 34-year-old. “The project of climate-neutral Research Institute” is part of Overall strategy of the Kofler energies competence center founded in 2008 at the REMI. In addition to the real estate economic research in the areas of sustainability and energy efficiency, the competence centre is committed to the target to achieve a stronger sensitisation of society for these issues and the economy.

CO2OL and Viebrockhaus protect 50,000 square metres of rainforest in Panama since the beginning of the year Viebrockhaus customers can also actively contribute to the climate and environment protection with the construction of their home. Through a collaboration between the solid House manufacturer and the Bonn climate specialists of CO2OL, builders have the opportunity to set aside forests in Panama and left to their natural ecosystems. Already 100 builders have participated a total in the preservation of species-rich forest areas rainforest are protected and therefore already 50,000 square metres. Already 100 Viebrockhaus builders involved: the goal to get as many species-rich forest areas and the high prevailing biodiversity in Panama permanently and protect, the two partners CO2OL and Viebrockhaus could be a significant piece closer. Since the beginning of the year each client of an active participates in Energieplus House 2012 automatically protect each 500 square meters rainforest of Bocas del Toro in northeastern of Panama and provides at the same time a contribution to compensate for the CO2 emissions, which are incurred in the construction of his new home. He automatically takes over the sponsorship for a concrete area at the conclusion of the contract and receives a deed with all geographical coordinates of the respective piece of protected forest. This support will allow the preservation of the forest over a period of at least 50 more years.
The protection forest is also the soil and water conservation in addition to the CO2 capture and is important habitat for a wide variety of plant and animal species. The builders Franziska Knahl and Daniel Ursic from Wotersen can now even, their personal”protection forest to visit. The couple who won the Panama trip in the context of a Viebrockhaus raffle, travels to Bocas del Toro early next year, to be convinced by the biological diversity of the now protected rainforest. Among all customers who decide until the end of 2012 for an active Energieplus House, another trip will be raffled to Panama. Many Builders are now active climate protectors and place value on a sustainable home. We are very pleased that we could protect already 50,000 square metres of rainforest area in Panama for Viebrockhaus within such a short time “, said Julia Daniel, project manager at CO2OL.” See for information about CO2OL. CO2OL: CO2OL is brand and Division of the ForestFinance group for the neutralization of CO2 emissions through forestry projects.
CO2OL designed high-quality climate protection afforestation projects for a variety of companies and organizations for over 10 years. In addition, companies and private individuals by buying CO2 certificates can have whether mobility, consumption or energy consumption caused compensate for their individual CO2 emissions. For business customers from different industries CO2OL offers practice-oriented and individual consultation and solutions, as these their carbon footprint improve and so be able to meet their corporate social responsibility for the climate and environmental protection. For their CO2OL reforestation projects according to the CCB and in addition CarbonFix and FSC standard were certified diverse ecological and social functions. She developed methodology Institute for energy, ecology and Economics 2008 with the seal of CO2 inventory audit of CO2OL derivation of General ISO standards for determining the CO2 emission at events of the NADIA “validated.

In addition to the enormous reserves, about which we have in their own country, are European power plants supplied with pellets from overseas”, so rad next. German pellet export to Details of the German of energy wood and Pelletverbandes (DEPV) currently still around 500,000 tons of wood pellets in the country including large amounts of power plants. Also local power plant locations settled with these tonnages and other free capacities of the German pellet amounting to approximately one million tons of safe with wood pellets supply. Pellets in a big way are dug in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Poland and Denmark. Either the operators have converted completely to wood pellets, as is planned in Tilbury, or are admixed in fossil-fired power plants in the so-called co-firing the pellets to Polish up so the CO 2 balance.
The switch from coal to pellets 2 emissions settled the CO as well as reduce the sulphur and nitrogen oxide emissions”, says Claudia Rohr. Pellets are an interesting fuel for power plants, also because they compared to other biogenic fuels have a high energy density and are homogenous, what simplifies transport and storage. By 2022 go all German nuclear reactor from the power supply. Network operators be expected especially in the winter, when less solar and import electricity is available, with an additional power needs of up to 2000 MW. The Federal Government wants to hold one of the nuclear reactors already set aside in the wake of the moratorium first by spring 2013 as a cold reserve. About German pellets German the largest pellet ether Europe is pellets with an annual capacity of currently 1.2 million tons.
The owner-managed company at nine locations in Germany a CO 2 neutral energy sources. Currently the company nearly to double its capacity with the construction of further works in the United States is planning. Around 800,000 households settled with 2.5 million tons of completely with renewable heat supply. Pellets used German in addition to use in small furnaces and heating plants to heat production also in power plants for electricity production.
Current engineering solutions to energy efficiency during the CLEAN is 5. CEP ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE without the further development of the existing techniques in the area of energy and climate change not to create the energy revolution. Mainly engineering services, analyzing, consulting, planning, design and implementation of projects to improve the energy efficiency are currently essential. Future-oriented approaches in Baden-Wuerttemberg, for example, when exchanging old heating equipment for more energy efficiency, in conjunction with the new energy saving Regulation (EnEV), scheduled for the end of 2012 and advancing cost – and energy-saving contracting solutions.
