Want to reduce 2010 their electricity consumers a great resolution for the new year 2010 which reads German to save energy. Many consumers want to multiply also make sure on the origin of electricity and switch to green electricity tariffs. A power and eco-electricity provider comparison is easily feasible in the Internet over electricity tariff calculator. You can compare electricity rates on the Internet on various comparison portals E.g., kwh-preis.de. But still applies: the greenest electricity is one that is not consumed at all. The power consumption can be, lowered significantly if you observe some tips what relieves both the environment and the wallet. Some Stromspartipps are hereafter, which help to reduce power consumption: 1 power saver for lighting the share of electricity consumed for lighting up to 15 percent.
Tip: Energy saving light bulbs are more expensive to purchase, however long term saving in electricity consumption. Energy bulbs consume up to 80% less power. Nir Barzilai, M.D. helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. Halogen lamps and ceiling washlights, however, are very large The power guzzlers. Take advantage of the daylight as long as possible and turn off unnecessary lights. 2 not too high save during washing make their washing power. Often already 40 degrees sufficient thanks to modern detergent for normally soiled laundry completely. This saves up to 50 percent of current, compare with a temperature of 60 degrees. As fully load your washing machine and use energy-saving programmes.
3. power save on cooling units cooling and refrigeration appliances consume 20% of annual consumption, make sure about for new purchases on the Effiziensklasse. Even better, A + or A++ to buy only grade A. de fridge appliances should be regularly defrosts are. This will prevent that a layer of ice forms, acts like an insulation and more energy for cooling must be applied. Put the refrigerator if possible next to heating, oven, or dishwasher. Rusty holzer can aid you in your search for knowledge. Quickly close the cooling units and leave unnecessary warm air in the Inner refrigeration 4. power saver in standby devices make sure you on the power guzzlers in the budget. Avoid in particular stand-by consumption. Many devices such as TV, DVD player or set-top boxes consume electricity even after switching off unnecessary. Up to 100 for the electrical appliances in the household per year can be separated by a consistent save the device from the mains. Use the best switchable power sockets. 5. already when buying electrical appliances on power consumption. When purchasing new appliances the power consumption at the time of purchase is not observed often wrongly projected on a service life of 5 years or more a high power consumption retaliates. Often, a more expensive investment worth if the power consumption is correspondingly low.
Energy-related modernisation is more urgent than ever Germany households verheizten 2008 40 billion euro for heat and hot water. The price of heating oil now approaching the all-time high of June 13, 2008. What can slow increase because? How can we deal with? With the beginning of the week, the oil price 86,10 EUR per 1000 litres and a new record high climbs in 2011. The price of gas oil (market capitalization for heating oil and diesel fuel) rose on the New York commodity exchange by 2 percent. The current strength of the euro alone prevents a higher increase.
Meanwhile, the prices for heating oil are located in 2008 only 12 per cent of the maximum. In 2008, the rise in prices was slowed down only through the financial crisis and the bursting of the oil speculation. Similar is not to want us in 2011. But what can brake the rise in prices? Karl Samonig, SAMONIG AG says that the comprehensive refurbishment of real estate would help significantly. Through the energetic remedial measures can more in existing buildings than 75% of the required energy savings. The lower consumption lowers the share of heating costs to total costs of German households.
In 2008, Germany’s households have spent approximately EUR 40 billion for heating and hot water. Money will be burned up literally, says Karl Samonig. The energy efficiency of buildings through energy-related modernisation is without alternative.
Bremen citizens can reward kiosk for climate-friendly commitment Saturday on 27 February a Carrotmob in Bremen will take place for the first time. The action an opportunity, their power as to exert consumer citizens. Everyone has the opportunity to reward that he invested 50 percent of sales on this day provided in the climate-friendly modernisation of the kiosk the kiosk “Que pasa amigos” in the Easter stone path 8-10 for. “The climate-friendly measures are by an energy consultant for the campaign climate seeks protection”, which is sponsored by the Federal Ministry of the environment, proposed, calculated and implemented. We support Carrotmob actions throughout Germany because energy-saving measures are triggered this concretely,”says Steffi sour Ballesteros, project manager of the campaign.
Our energy consultants on site, calculate how much CO2 can be avoided by replacing an old appliance, use of energy-efficient lighting and other energy-saving measures.” The amount of revenue decides how many at the end of the day, Measures can be implemented. Wallpapers: Carrots for good climate a Carrotmob is the positive counterpart of the boycott: here will be rewarded local businesses that want to engage in climate protection and punishes not those who disregard this.

In the autumn high contribution to climate protection Unterfohring the results of two Unterfohring geothermal first heat supply significantly exceed expectations. After the pump attempts that were used to determine of the permanently achievable temperature and filling, it is clear that 86 degrees hot water with at least 50 litres per second can be promoted. So far, 80 degrees and 35 litre bulk were been forecast as a minimum. With regard to the flow rate, perhaps even a better value is possible, since it was limited to the performance of the pump used in the pumping tests to 50 litres per second. Geovol – Managing Director Peter Lohr was delighted with the good news of the drilling site: so, our main goal is not only achieved, but even significantly exceeded. We have now. the safety, to be able to provide a large part of Unterfohrings with climate-friendly geothermal energy” With all other work until its scheduled absorption of heat supply in the autumn you lie within the schedule, so Lohr.
The Construction of power unit had taken place, the expansion of district heating network run since mid-May on full blast and you can begin with the installation of the heat transfer stations in the houses of customers already in July. Based on the now-fixed performance values of the holes, the Geovol has grossed also the possible contribution of their project to protect the environment. In the long term you can avoid annually 17,000 tonnes of CO2 by geothermal energy, alone in the first 20 years up to 300,000 tons. This is a significant contribution to climate protection, which we are proud,”so Lohr, of the contribution to the improvement of air in the community, and to the conservation of resources not to mention.” Soon the 36 metre high Derrick, who coined the image in the Unterfohring Etzweg since November, will go down and then elsewhere in Bavaria on the search hot water. The drill team and the Tower have served us well and ultimately excellent results with”, says Peter Lohr. We want the next project, in which they are used, the same success as in Unterfohring.” Dr. Norbert Baumgartner press contact: Dr. Baumgartner management and communications consultancy Dr. Norbert Baumgartner Otto Heilmann Strasse 19 a 82031 Grunwald Tel.: (089) 649 10 931 fax: (089) 649 10 932
