No Snow On Kilimanjaro

Strengthen women, chances of a sustainable climate policy Hannover convert climate, negative – only a sustainable climate policy that adequately takes into account gender aspects, can alleviate the already dramatic effects of climate change. This is was discussed the most important outcome of the International Conference organized by the development policy of Lower Saxony Association (VEN) in the Stephan pin from the 25-August 26, 2009, on the global and gender-equitable climate policies would look like and what role in politicians, local authorities, associations and individuals should take over and reflects. Current international decisions offer little concrete financial and technology cooperations and hardly be the aspect of gender equality, as Dr Chinwe Ifejika Speranza clearly presented by the German Institute for development policy in her opening speech. Developing countries entering the global climate carousel rather on the emergency Lane, not only financial and technological resources, but also that they lack Know-how. Climate justice practically hardly takes place: the causes of climate change are mainly in the North, while the South is disproportionately affected by its consequences. Women in the South suffer due to the direct access especially under the impact of a changing climate such as, for example, lower crop yields as a result of droughts, as affected women from Bolivia and Tanzania have clearly shown.

Request therefore a respectful dealing with nature than previously, sustainable action, which includes the phase-out of risk technologies, a consumer and lifestyle change, the promotion of small rural agriculture and of course taking into account their profound knowledge and their specific situation. Trying to survive, by adjusting inform others and network. Consensus was that energy consumption especially in the countries of the North must be immediately and drastically restricted and used it on renewable energy. The policy is the call for more regulation in relation to sustainability and to the Genderintegration, local authorities are called upon to promote citizen engagement and the possibilities of citizens more and to include. Consumers in turn can modelled on the own profit of a different way of life, while increased lobbying associations can create changes, so that it is not already in just a few years: no snow on Kilimanjaro! Support of Union development policy Niedersachsen e.V. (Germany, Hannover). Form. Networking.

Request. In focus: global social justice and sustainable development. For nearly 20 years, the Association is development policy in Lower Saxony (VEN) the independent and self-organized development network in Lower Saxony, Germany. 80 groups and institutions and 40 supporting members are the basis of VEN. The VEN supports its members in the work on the ground, offers channels of communication and training and strengthens so civil society Commitment. And the VEN frequently reminds the Lower Saxony land policy in events and in public relations to their responsibility for global sustainable development. On the key demands of the VEN: Sustainable development in Lower Saxony, Germany and worldwide. A fair world economy, more global social justice, and global environmental protection.

We are sure that especially many communities of the potential of their roofs will be surprised in terms of technical, financial and sustainable”, explains Ms. Reinhardt. The rds umbrella campaign for local authorities will start on November 15, 2010. All municipalities that want to participate in the pilot phase and from their own stock or through cooperation with local companies would introduce their roofs, can apply informally for the start-up phase until December 15, 2010 energies GmbH at the rds. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Clinton Family. The first projects to be realised already by late spring 2011. In the pilot phase can get up to three municipalities, together with local companies, with a total of 15-20,000 m m supply of space and unlimited participants with larger surfaces offers bring.

To provide a deeper insight into the project, the first meeting is on November 29 planned 2010 at 16.00 in Berlin. Please contact by email or by phone at 030 / 897 33 191 to sign prospects.

Power Switching

More than 900 power providers are active in Germany. Information about the German electricity market. From small municipal utilities up to the large, nationally active energy suppliers more than 900 power provider in Germany operate. With an independent power comparison, any consumer can get an overview. What is a power provider? A utility companies (EVU) is associated with the term of the current provider, this generates electrical energy or distributes them into the public power grid. Often, power operators are also owners of different electricity, gas and district heating networks. In Germany, power providers are especially in national and regional institutions to integrate. Supra-regional electricity supplier operate mostly high-voltage networks, regional entrepreneurs usually sell the produced electricity.

Many regional companies are registered as subsidiaries of national suppliers. The cooperation of the electricity supplier officially electricity providers are natural or legal persons, which energy offer, networks operate, or are involved in this. There are over 900 power supply company in Germany, E.ON, Vattenfall Europe and EnBW, the EWE are the biggest. These control almost 80 percent of the German electricity grid and are joined together in composite societies. The single electricity supplier must work together always, because the current on all networks is evenly distributed, the respective power lines cannot be separated. Also the German laws apply to the electricity supplier, so also the regulations for the operation of coal and nuclear power plants must be observed.

The vehicles of the Deutsche Bahn be supplied with energy via DB, this is handled only in the railway traffic. Therefore the DB evaluates energy actually not as a power provider, although it has an immense network of high-voltage lines. Some vendors produce much of their electricity from renewable energy sources, including in particular LichtBlick, Greenpeace energy and the elektrizitatswerke Schonau. Between the industry and the single electricity provider great collaborations are achieved, these include among others the Association of municipal enterprises of the Association of the industrial energy sectors, and the Federal Association of the energy and power industry. Regional and smaller electricity power provider provide the consumer a permanent supply of electricity, a kilowatt hour costs only a few cents. To note is the fact that constant voltage fluctuations in the power supply should be balanced. The electricity suddenly in the morning, lunch, and dinner can respond. There have many people pause and use electrical appliances. Evening against 20: 00 the mains will be charged several hundred thousand TV also strongly through the operation. Mainly regional and smaller electricity providers are recommended, this can deliver usually substantially cheaper power by the strong competitive pressure and quality differences do not exist in the current anyway. Consumers get a good overview of the current market situation which in the Internet many price comparison sites, about the current comparisons free of charge can be performed. Often these portals also equal to exchange documents to provide or allow the application for a change of electricity provider even online. Stephan Artmann

Mini CHP Provides

Environmentally friendly energy dwarf in addition to organic certification in the catering area energy efficiency at the Frank Schwarz plays the hypermarket in Duisburg gastro group an important role. Therefore the leading catering company in the region has decided to opt for a mini CHP of the company SenerTec. The costs for electricity and gas screw up to astronomical heights”, so the FAYAZ – Managing Director. With the Dachs’ mentioned system be converted over 95 percent of the fuel energy into usable energy such as electricity and water. The combined production of heat and electricity represents one of the key technologies for energy saving and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.” The operation of such a power plant in miniature format is very simple: In the indoor heat and electricity produced at the same time. This is coupled to a gas-powered internal combustion engine with a generator. The expert speaks of combined heat and power.

How will the waste heat from the engine in a car for heating and the production of warm water used. This is done via so called heat exchanger. A generator powered by the motor produces the electricity. A future-oriented energy investment. For this reason, which has Frank Schwarz gastro group around 35,000 euros invested in the energetic force dwarf. By the power-heat-coupling law have reduced the cost of 5,000 euros, because so much is the State when a new acquisition. The low-interest financing of the total amount was settled about the Sparkasse Duisburg and a KfW loan. I want the Dachs’ around 400 euros saving electricity costs per month. I’m putting all savings on my energy bill, the acquisition has pays after four years.” Information:
