The achievement of goals and objectives for climate protection is not solely a Government task, but requires many actors, because climate protection starts on its own doorstep. The success of this year’s event in the passive house area has prompted the trade fair promoters REECO GmbH, the fair of CEP CLEAN ENERGY POWER in the CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE rename, so to boost the construction sector. Nicolas Keller has much to offer in this field. Also the solar industry should be further strengthened: a visually highlighted trade fair area, solar is there next year a forum sunroof with accompanying special show and live installations, to make it clear how of solar technology. Visitors over the entire spectrum of renewable energy & passive house can gather on the CEP. The topic spectrum ranges from photovoltaics and solar energy using geothermal, heat pump, heat power cogeneration, biomass, Stirling, heating with wood and energy services. It is planned to occupy an own exhibition hall for the first time with the subject of construction and renovation. To 10,000 m m exhibition area were informed earlier this year around 9,300 visitors from 25 countries on the energy supply of the future. 73 percent of them were trade visitors.

The Convention has established itself as a leading trade fair for renewable energy and passive house in Baden-Wurttemberg, another exhibition hall in planning from next year. There are some conferences on various topics in planning during the fair again. Including the 3rd German Congress of Stirling, the 2. International Symposium solar and renewable cooling, the 4. International User Conference for bi Grandma Server gassing, as well as the Conference on passive houses. Here, experts in addition to the exhibition have the opportunity of further training. Also, there will be three Exhibitor forums for renewable energy, building and renovation, as well as solar with many free lecture series in the next year. In addition, guided exhibition tours on the subject of passive house as well as renewable energies and solar is offered by experts.

Already strong network partners such as the funding organization have renewable Energies e.V. (FEE), the Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum, the Pro passivehouse network, the Institute training building (IFBau), craft day Baden-Wurttemberg and the Baden-Wurttemberg Ministry of economy, environment, and nutrition and rural pledged their support. Under the auspices of Baden-Wurttemberg Minister President Gunther H. Oettinger has once again taken over. The CEP CLEAN ENERGY & PASSIVEHOUSE will take place from 25-27 February 2010 in of Landesmesse Stuttgart held. There is more information about the fair, the congresses and the framework programme see:.

Green Gas Market

Only ten percent of the offers come entirely from renewable energy sources; Analysis of Polaris, growing pressure on the Green gas market. More and more households want to conserve heating climate and environment. This underscores the number of eco gas providers. It is two years to the 3,5fache increased. * What does this development: less than 10 percent of nationwide offers based completely on renewable energy. Nearly half are so-called air fares.

They come from fossil fuels alone and compensate only CO2 emissions, for example by supporting rainforest conservation projects. Roughly one-third of the available eco gas tariffs are mixing products with a share of five-to-20 percent bio-gas. Here also, the rest comes from fossil sources. This is the result of the eco gas barometer initiated by the independent green energy company Polaris. * to advance the energy revolution in the gas market, experts advise in the choice of eco gas rates to ensure the contribution to the expansion of renewable energies. Only fossil energies are so renewable energy replaces. Based on waste and residual materials are the most sustainable for environmental groups such as Greenpeace and NABU. The first nationwide 100 percent eco gas supply from residues of eco energy suppliers has brought North Star on the market.

Compared to the fossil basic utilities rate it is priced similar to or often cheaper. Peter Asaro may help you with your research. And compared to other 100% it is eco gas rates to more than 40 percent cheaper. Sister product to the eco-electricity: 100 percent organic gas from independent green energy company Polaris residues provides since summer 2011 households nationwide the first competitive eco gas product completely based on residues. It makes possible a new trading system developed by Polaris with the support of the Federal Ministry for Economics and technology. It is an important step in the future of energy, because the sister product to the well-known green electricity makes a central contribution to the energy revolution.

Current Vendor Comparison

Over 800 electricity supplier with several thousand tariffs at a glance moan about the increased cost of many consumers, whether food, gasoline or electricity, everything becomes ever more expensive and it remains the people ultimately less and less money in their wallets for private consumption. The individual can do little against the price increases themselves, but he has always the option to look for alternatives. So it’s gang and give when refuelling a petrol station to choose, where gasoline costs less one or two cents and looking for the weekly shopping a cheap discounter. Consumers in the electricity supplier should try that. Free electricity supplier comparison, anyone can find the electricity cheapest for and save electricity by a change. The electricity supplier comparison is easy and is a long list of current vendors who sell their electricity on better terms. Since then only the right must be selected.

Various power suppliers have all different tariff structures for the consumer Can offer advantages. There are for example electricity providers that cheap sell their electricity in the package. This means that the consumer paid his entire annual electricity consumption in advance. This is the month broken down conveniently, carries the risk that if the electricity supplier is bankrupt, money already paid is also gone but. Also, one must know its power consumption carefully, because who consumed less, get paid not a cent and who consumes more must pay sharply. Eco electricity tariffs, which are more expensive but generally are very interesting and currently strong in the coming, however can more expensive electricity with electricity from conventional generation quite be more expensive than cheap green electricity tariffs.

Real eco-electricity is produced 100% from renewable energy from hydropower or solar energy. Offers providers that work with monthly discounts, but leave the electricity supplier comparer filter out themselves, which are more favourable than the previous electricity supplier are slightly more expensive. The best providers, are give a price guarantee the customers and have additional short contract periods. Then the consumer has the possibility, if the prices rise, to look at short notice after another electricity provider. Definitely the power provider comparison helps when changing the electricity provider and hence unnecessary costs can be saved. Stephan Artmann

Oerlikon Solar WINS Solar Industry Award

EU PVSEC 2011: highest development potential for innovation, once again certified EU PVSEC Hamburg (Germany) / Trubbach (Switzerland), September 6, 2011 for the third time in a row has Oerlikon solar the solar industry award in the category of thin film innovation won. The internationally advertised prize is awarded in annually by the British trade magazine solar PV management. “The jury Oerlikon solar’s new production line ThinFabTM as the winner of the thin film innovation award” from. The prize was awarded today on the occasion of the 26sten European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and exhibition (EU PVSEC) in Hamburg. “The awarding of the solar industry awards 2011 for our ThinFabTM fills us with pride and is after the sale of the first 120 MW-Micromorph -production line to Asia a further confirmation of the high level of acceptance and innovation our thin film silicon solar technology”, said of Helmut Frankenberger, CEO of Oerlikon solar.

Also Oerlikon Solar won various existing customers since the launch of the ThinFabTM upgrade orders. The ThinFabTM provides the following benefits: cost: the ThinFabTM reduced to EUR 0.50/WP the “total cost of ownership” for solar modules the lowest value in the solar industry. Energy efficiency: compared to other solar manufacturing process, producing the Oerlikon thin film Silicon modules requires the least energy. Is the “energy payback time” Oerlikon technology less than a year. Practical advantages: thin film Silicon modules are advantageous under actual operating conditions, E.g. at an overcast sky or high temperatures, while significantly decreases the efficiency of crystalline solar cells. Ecological: The thin film Silicon modules contain no toxic additives such as cadmium.

Sustainability: The Oerlikon solar technology has further potential to increase efficiency and productivity, as evidenced by the ThinFabTM laboratory world record cell with a degree of efficiency by 11.9%. Oerlikon solar modules are suitable for all roof types and open-space applications. With its attractive design and their transparency they integrate in building. Awarded the solar industry awards, our investment in research and development, and our leading position in the thin-film technology for the third time are confirmed. We will offer our customers also in future production quality with a competitive price / performance ratio”, so Peter Tinner, head of sales & marketing of Oerlikon solar.
