Wide range between success and failure in the insulation / new DammCheck express calculates efficiency / insulation dossier informed about fire hazards and other topics / insulation sets to win Berlin, 22 January 2014. Worth building insulation? For roof insulation, analyses of the non-profit co2online GmbH show average energy savings of 14 percent, with facades of about 20 percent. However, the bandwidth between economic success and failure at rehabilitation is great: good made roof and barrel Aden insulation reach 30-40 per cent savings depending on the Cubature of building, condition of the building envelope before, quality of craft work and customize the behavior of the users. Without support from KfW, the measures are only economical if the technical savings are exhausted. Good advice and good design help to achieve this and to protect against economic damage.

Because insulation has a life span of 30-40 years, errors in planning and One or two generations burden the climate and the purse strings of the inhabitants of execution. Learn more about this with Restaurateur. Building insulation is important for climate protection and in the majority of cases from an economic perspective. The insulation of the upper floor is always useful but not always possible. “Any insulation must be properly planned and executed, and of course, fit to the building”, says Dr. John D.

Stallion mountain, Managing Director of co2online.

BWE market overview special wind energy onshore & offshore financing a glance at our European neighbours – Germany is still the most successful in the construction of wind power on land. This not least due to the favourable wind energy financing options. The wind project financing is a complex and multi-faceted issue through the variety of stakeholders. For this reason, a further publication of the Bundesverband WindEnergie e.V. from the series the BWE market overview on the topic of wind energy appears financing on 10 September 2012. Swarmed by offers, Bill de Blasio is currently assessing future choices. Here the various actors come to Word, which involved in a wind park funding. The trade publication is characterized by a strong practical focus.

So, all articles were created by renowned experts from the wind energy industry. An experienced wind energy project company explains what requirements must be met for a wind farm project successfully can be brought to a conclusion. In a further contribution is Hartmut Kluge of the Bremer Landesbank in detail on the wind energy project Eligibility criteria a, and explains how repowering projects differ from the perspective of the Bank from new projects. The KfW as a long-standing partner in wind energy financing presents the various funding opportunities in the publication and shows how composed of investors. Other possibilities of wind energy financing are illuminated in the publication. The energy cooperative in the past four years tremendously grew (source: Klaus Novy Institute;) As of 05/2012). Thomas Berg, Director of the Foundation Center of Genossenschaftsvebands, explained in his post, what factors explain this growth and as an energy cooperative can help finance the wind farm.

Because the expansion of offshore wind energy is indispensable for the energy future, publication addresses the topic of offshore is furthermore also extensively wind energy financing. Compared to the onshore wind energy is in offshore wind projects about high investment, only in the interplay between banks, financially strong Investors and public funding be provided to. The contribution of Andreas Wagner, Managing Director of the Foundation of OFFSHORE wind energy, is showing what measures are needed in the next few years, the offshore wind industry to improve financing conditions provides a good overview. That also the offshore wind energy can contribute to regional value added, in the interview with Heligoland Mayor clearly. He is sure that Helgoland can serve as an example for other regions and others will benefit from the experience. With the new BWE market overview special wind energy financing onshore & offshore has the Bundesverband WindEnergie E.v. took a crucial topic. Newly designated areas in the North of the Republic, repowering, and above all the development in the southern region of create many capacities for new projects that funding to the Foundation must have a solid wind park. The Bundesverband WindEnergie e.V. published for over 20 years Books on the topic of wind energy. In addition to the established BWE market overview – Yearbook service, technology and markets, the BWE market overviews address current topics of the industry special.

SolarEdge Leistungsoptimierer cut test better than leading strand – and micro inverter Munich, July 30, 2013 according to one from PV evolution Labs (PVEL) ver-shadow study conducted of the national renewable energy laboratory (NREL) exceed the strand leading SolarEdge-Leistungsoptimierer – and micro power inverter. The SolarEdge system brings a 1.9%, 5.0% and 8.4% respectively higher energy yield than the tested string inverters, light, medium and heavy shading of the PV system and is resorting to the performance of the micro power inverter. The test measured the so-called shading mitigation factors”(SMFs factors of reverse shading reduction), which indicate the percentage of energy recovery of Leistungsoptimierers or micro-inverter system compared to conventional Powertrain inverter systems. The SolarEdge system delivered a higher energy yield than the strand inverter system in all tests. The annual average won the SolarEdge system 24.8% of the energy lost through shading back, the micro-inverter system only 23.2%, confirmed Matt Donovan, Project Manager field when PV evolution Labs. Leistungsoptimierer by SolarEdge tracking the maximum power point (MPP) at the module level and lessen the shipping shading losses occurring in harness or central MPP tracking.

Leistungsoptimierer can also follow already the MPP of a module as opposed to micro power inverter at voltages from 5 V. This ability allows SolarEdge, to optimize engine performance even with strong shading. The NREL ver shading test results confirm our earlier statements”, says Joachim Nell, General Manager of Central Europe at SolarEdge.

Advantages Of LPG Tank

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Convert from rental tank on tank and forcefully save a supply of liquefied petroleum gas offers many advantages. Liquefied petroleum gas is used in various applications, not only as energy for heating, but also for cooking, cooling, to the fuelling of vehicles and much more. It is versatile, economical in use and low in pollutants – LPG is becoming the first choice when it comes to energy. LPG is available anywhere, since it is stored in contrast to natural gas in special containers, LPG tanks, and is independent of long supply lines. In the times of the large tanks in the basement are long gone, because LPG is stored in tanks in the garden (above or below ground).

In land with plenty of space above ground storage offered. A variant of the LPG tanks harmoniously insert settle in the environment. Almost invisible fits the Earth-covered liquid tank in the natural conditions. The LPG container is under approx. 50 cm thick soil and is well protected against mechanical and thermal influences. A half above ground storage towers only a remnant of liquid gas tanks from the Earth, which can easily be hidden behind some bushes. No matter what type of storage you decide: you are right.

A separate room, such as oil tanks is not required and the size of the tank depends on your annual energy needs, the LPG specialist work with you reliably charged. Also the heating baths are small, handy and are barely in the House. The construction cost for the installation of a liquid gas container is also very low; Usually a simple concrete slab for establishing tank ranges. The entire installation and commissioning is carried out according to legal regulations, strict compliance with which ensures the LPG supply companies. Regardless of where you live with a modern LPG tank system you must waive so no place gas comfort. Not only for new buildings, also for the modernisation of apartments, this saving space heating system is the right choice. Compared to LPG rental tanks the own liquid gas tank is the clearly more economical Variant. By the reference prices such pays LPG tank system own already after two to three years. The customer is independent in choosing its liquefied natural gas suppliers and can apply its energy to the market of liquefied gas or a liquid gas exchange. This free LPG specialist businesses without binding contract provide the liquid gas with the same quality at a significantly lower LNG price. Also decide alone over the energy supply and can react individually to cheap prices of liquefied petroleum gas, such as in the summer months. LNG and LPG tanks – economically in the long term, comfortable and low in pollutants. A good decision. Michael Senscheid, SENLOGAS energy –
