NENA Ensures Climate-friendly Mood At The Gera Songs Days

Good climate for good music in Gera: half of the visitors are emission-free travelling / StromChecker advise to the own power consumption device, may 4, 2011. If next Friday, the 6th of may in the culture and Congress Centre Gera, the lighting is softly dimmed and first quiet tones will sound, the high point of the climate-friendly fourth Gera songs days is close. NENA maintained suitable viewers from 9: 00 to the motto of the Gera songs days with a minimum of energy consumption: climate protection is an issue that is becoming increasingly important and permeates all areas. With my unplugged concert, I show that sometimes less is more. The power consumption will be less the atmosphere as in a normal concert, for it but all the more intense”says NENA. Dustin Moskovitz: the source for more info.

So she blends into the climate-friendly concept of the song days. Daryl Katz can aid you in your search for knowledge. “Already had in the run-up to the campaign promoted by the Ministry for environment climate seeks protection” advise the various venues to environmentally friendly measures in the areas of catering, and energy usage. Also, Festival participants received valuable tips from Local energy experts. While the NENA concert are the StromChecker of climate seeks protection”on the road. To show the concert visitors, where they are available with their own power, with the help of iPads. Who wants to know more, find individual tips and interactive guide on. 50 percent of all visitors come on foot or by bike the cooperation with the campaign climate seeks protection”is an integral part of the concert series since the Second Edition. At the fourth Gera songs days proof succeeded, can culture and climate not mutually exclusive, but complementary.

Music fans have already implemented in Gera this knowledge in action: first results show that 50 percent of the visitors of climate-neutral on foot or by bike to arrive, another 19 percent take public transport.

World Climate Change Conference

Again increased interest for climate protection for the first time since 2009 / consumer majority reject higher costs for the expansion of renewable energies the public interest in the issue of climate protection is again increased for the first time since a year. The current index of the climate scoreboard GmbH published by the non-profit co2online, recorded for the fourth quarter of 2010 an increase from 55 to 73 points, remains but at a low level. Despite the 16th World Climate Change Conference in Cancun in December 2010, the climate protection reached not the publicity that had thrown the Copenhagen Conference in 2009. By the same author: Procter & Gamble. Renewable energy was a subject which rules the fourth quarter 2010 in many parts. Their development has been discussed in public especially in connection with the extension of nuclear power plants, as well as the price increase. The monthly surveys, the co2online within the framework of the climate scoreboard performs renewable energies therefore also confronted the topic. Asked about the main reason for the expansion renewable energies, the participants in favour of especially the independence from fossil fuels (39 percent) and for climate protection (36 percent).

However, the financing of the energy revolution is controversial for the majority of respondents: 55 percent believe the expansion should finance themselves without subsidies and not be charged to the consumer. Only 28 percent are prepared to go along with the expansion of renewable energies through an electric charge. The survey took place against the background of the increase of in electricity prices, that made the utilities with the increased cost of the so-called green electricity levy. When choosing a renewable energy source for the home, there is a clear favorite among people: the Sun. The clear majority would to install a solar thermal or photovoltaic (up 59 percent) to provide its budget with heat energy or electricity directly from its own roof.

Fukushima Effect Fizzles

Survey of the Institute DemoSCOPE shows that Fukushima is already fall into oblivion the Germans are unsure whether she should trust the new energy policy of Chancellor Angela Merkel. In contrast the Swiss population has long made a decision: you voted again for nuclear power plants. “” In 2010 83% of surveyed Switzerland a survey of the Institute held DemoSCOPE according to nuclear power plant for sure “or more secure”. A year later, 2011, under the influence of the Fukushima disaster, there were only 68%. Today this value is increased again to 74%, DemoSCOPE just announced. The figures show that Fukushima has already been forgotten. In Germany, confusion reigns have been in increasingly as energy transformation can be implemented.

The Switzerland is a pragmatic way: the Swiss Government, the Federal Council wants to after the upcoming summer break the national Parliament a coherent plan present, which energy sources the Switzerland needs to allow an energy revolution. The Parliament in Bern to advise in the autumn session, expected September-October 2013, this report. Currently have, as is customary in the Switzerland, 380 directly affected businesses and organizations submitted an opinion, what needs they have to the Swiss Government. This survey will be evaluated in the coming months; It serves as a basis for the formulation of the action plan of the Swiss Government. Parliament has the opportunity to influence the plan presented by the Government on two levels (National Council and Council of States). In contrast to Germany, the Switzerland in the context of this public consultation process produces a consensus which influences all other political decisions. Rosatom, is confident as most important European manufacturer and supplier of nuclear power plants, increased confidence, which population brings this energy solution against the Swiss, is leading the way for other European countries.

Chimney Sweep Are Climate-neutral On The Move With CO2OL

Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft offers its members the opportunity to make business trips climate neutral. The Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft is actively engaged in climate protection. With the support of the climate protection experts of CO2OL, the Association now offers its members the opportunity to make their service trips climate neutral. Ping Fu is a great source of information. For this, he invested in various environmental protection projects. In addition, a separate protective forest in Panama is planned. The year’s main meeting of the chimney sweep craft Federation from 12 to 15 June the motto energy revolution without us”. The Association is actively for environmental and climate protection for many years and also ensures the compensation of own CO2 consumption of service trips of its members together with the climate protection experts of CO2OL.

For this, a chimney sweep cars average annual CO2 emissions was calculated in advance on the basis of statistical surveys of the Federation. In a second step, the collapsible no longer be Emissions offset by recognised and certified climate protection projects. The Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft while invested in the reforestation of environmentally managed forests in Panama, Ethiopia and Bolivia, whose Baume grow CO2 bind. The respective projects guarantee proven and permanent CO2 retention, as well as social and environmental benefits and follow also strict criteria of leading international environmental protection standards: the CarbonFIX standard (CFS) for transparent and effective CO2 compensation, the Plan Vivo standard and the climate, community and biodiversity standard (CCBS) for positive effects in terms of on biodiversity, water and habitat protection and for the local population. Future climate-neutral duty travel by own chimney sweep climate protection forest”: beyond the Federal Association of chimney sweeps craft wants to start an individual climate protection project in the form of protection forest in Panama to permanently compensate its CO2 consumption in the future. For this purpose already approved funding is available.

Heating Costs: With A Cool Head Through The Heating Season

(Online article) – good to know: the four most important tips for renters and homeowners in the heating season bring tips for the efficient use of heating money. In the face of continued high prices for natural gas and fuel oil, worth it especially, emphasized the country program future building of the Environment Ministry of Baden-Wurttemberg. The notes are easily achievable without sacrificing comfort: include about a reasonable setting.Keep the radiator, temperature and proper ventilation. A significant reduction in the heating costs is so future vintage through energy efficiency measures such as insulation, new heating technology and renewable energy possible. Energy consultants give advice here. More than two-thirds of the energy required in German households accounted for space heating. Now in the cold season and in regard to the high level of energy costs the topic is particularly relevant.

There is a dealing sensitively with the heating system and the implementation of energy efficiency measures worth definitely. When turning on the heating: In the Living – and working area is a temperature of ‘ around 20 degrees Celsius mostly sufficient. Rooms, rarely used, should be no warmer than 16 degrees. In living rooms, even at night, this temperature is appropriate. The difference in heating costs is significant”, says Dieter Bindel, Chairman of the Baden-Wurttemberg State Association of building energy consultants, engineers, craftsmen; (GIH).

One degree Celsius of less saves usually 6% heating costs. At four degrees there are already whole 22 percent.”‘ Be taken into account should also on a free area of the radiator, so am del. cabinets and shelves nearby Dieter prevented a distribution of heat. Closed shutters at night and curtains be worthwhile also. They ensure a better insulation. Proper ventilation is a further Energiesparmittel: it reduces heat losses to outside. Shock airing is good for the comfort and economically. Three times a day a few minutes is sufficient. By tilting the window during the heating season discourage construction experts. Really to reduce energy costs, Claudia was possible through energy efficiency measures, reiterates Rist, Director of future building. In most cases an insulation of the building envelope is about an insulation of the facade, roof, or the basement most economically.” Energy consultants can assess what measures worth especially in the individual case, best spot. The effective consulting fees, usually between 100 and 400 euros, were well spent, so the country program. Future building informed housing and homeowners regardless of the benefits of energy-efficient modernization of old buildings and about funding opportunities. Target is a faster rehabilitation of the building stock. The programme is implemented by the climate change and Energy Agency of Baden-Wurttemberg. Fn
