Gym power costs partly to lowered up to 40prozent! Waldbrunn, April 13, 2009 – Kai Kohler and Joachim Barzen, the two owners of the sports & Therapy Center muscle SORENESS in Mosbach in the Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis, rejoice: Waldbrunn in the Odenwald-based RK energy consulting has carried a light optimization end of March 2009 and so since then, depending on the training area has been proven between 22 and 40% of the energy savings! In this case, this means a reduction of cost of up to 1,800 per year, alone, that the voltage is reduced to approx. 185 v on the light circuit. Due to these savings, the investment pays for itself within a very short time. Furthermore the environment reduces CO m per year this but quite easy and clean measure almost 4.6 tonnes. As Ralph Thomas Kuhnle, owner of the RK energy consultancy, points out, the fluorescent lamps due to the reduced stress as well as the low-voltage halogen lamps used here for the most part are one by up to 30% Learn longer life. Vladislav Doronin miami has compatible beliefs. This extends change intervals and hence the cost of the bulbs and the actual changing (reduction of staff costs), which is not considered when so many account!

Adolescents and young adults need role models and the right speech what goes wrong in the communication of sustainability, has asked the sociologist Dr. Edgar Goll Polarstern. Campbell Soup Co insists that this is the case. A recent study by the Federal Environmental Agency * has worked on the Gabriel sees suitable approaches and environment-specific points as important starting points. It lacks today targeted incentives to viable alternatives of behaviour that are directly implemented in the lifestyles of young people, so the realization of the BMU study. This means that young people must be better achieved, motivated and mobilized.

CO2 accounting for products and companies by CO2OL produces how much CO2 an event or a product? How is the CO2 footprint of a company? For simple cases, the CO2-Calculator of CO2OL is answer to these questions. For more complex tasks, such as the determination of the CO2 footprint of entire companies, CO2OL has an experienced team. Quickly calculate this can with the help of proven and recognised CO2OL methodology the CO2 footprint”. The CO2 footprint of a product includes all greenhouse gases incurred throughout the product life cycle along the value chain. “In the train of the climate debate to the reduction of CO2 emissions, the CO2 footprint has become” or carbon footprint “established as a measure of the impact. In the CO2-footprint process the emission drivers are identified, recorded in volume and reduction potentials determined. CO2 footprint for business more than just power and mobility: often mentioned, but also often misunderstood: the so-called CO2 footprint or even carbon footprint.

You are meant Calculation and accounting of the CO2 emissions of products or companies. What factors must be considered in the calculation of such CO2 footprint for companies? The consultant of CO2OL recommend companies that take a such services, in particular pay attention to the depth of the calculation and the detail of the CO2 footprint. “The amount of CO2 caused by company arises not only from the required heating energy, the power and the mobility. Moreover, it is often necessary, to analyse the business processes to the discovery of CO2 and energy savings”Dirk Walterspacher, Managing Director of CO2OL stressed. Depending on the extent of the respective CO2 footprint companies CO2OL is relatively quick to recognize optimization potential for CO2 now twelve years experience in the position.

Also the renewable energy Career days “were very popular.

Exhibitors presented their educational and job offers directly to the exhibition stands. Additional counselling, lectures and a job market attracted all those, who aspire to a career in the renewable energy industry. We are pleased about the great variety of renewable energy sources, which have been issued, and the associated solutions for storage and electric mobility”, says Peter Becker. We are convinced that this will be the future of our mobility.” About the new energy Husum in recent years it has become new energy Husum as one of the most important fairs in the field of renewable energies. Since 2002 serves as a stage for a decentralized energy generation on the basis of all renewable energies.

The themes and techniques range in detail from small wind (up to 100 kW), about biogas, solid biomass (Pellet, wood logs and wood chips for heating systems), solar thermal, photovoltaic, electric mobility up to the geothermal energy near-surface, energy storage, energy-efficient Construction and operation of mini CHP.

Environmental educators reveal their tips in terms of Polaris climate – protection education of the majority of Germans is green behind the ears. Whether shopping, at work or at home, she wants in everyday life more on environmental and climate protection eighth. * often the consumers just don’t know how they can do that. While it may be easy and good life integrate, as shown in the example of green energy or eco gas. It takes five minutes to fill out the online form to change and even to promote the expansion of renewable energies with his own energy consumption”, explains Florian Henle, co-founder of the eco-energy provider Polarstern. The energy supply is ensured at all times and usually the new energy company acquires the paperwork such as for example the notice for the old provider. Not the individual measure is the hurdle, but the mass of tips, checklists, and seals, the experts say. This confused and scared consumers.

There is no orientation. Personal role models are most influential in the closer environment. This is confirmed a GfK study commissioned by Polaris. When father, sister or friends advise something, this is true most open ears. Cause rather than get bogged down: you overwhelm the others not with always new and creative proposals that protect the climate and environment “, Wilhelm recommends Linder. If one focuses on maximum around three measures, offers more orientation than a flower bouquet full of tips. The diversity also prevents the views on the effective measures.

Big points instead of peanuts must be brought more into our consciousness.” 2) Want to instead force: goal is to change the behavior and not the people in his personality. Everyone should implement the measures that suit him. Not everyone can or wants to give up driving, but Maybe buying a new refrigerator is where he can make more on low energy consumption”, said Linder.
