Beekeepers Demonstrate

Beekeepers demonstrate demo for the protection of the honey bees, for the protection of the ecosystem and for the protection of the people of Brunswick, 18 honey bees before the Federal Office of consumer protection and food safety (BVL) July 2008 and their products are biological indicators that display the health of the environment. Recently, the honey bees by poisoning with the active ingredient Clothianidin were affected in Baden and Bavaria. Clothianidin belongs to a new generation of insecticides, the so called Neonicotinoids. For years, professional beekeeper indicate that Clothianidin has already caused damage to bees in other countries. The bee is just the tip of the iceberg in this year. Originally posted early given of the numerous still existing gaps in knowledge the re-registration of Clothianidin mordants is irresponsible. Now the poison may be returned from the next mass extinction seem only a matter of time”, NABU – CEO Leif Miller warns. NABU had in 2004 asked the BVL, also that the Neurotoxic to ban scoring means Gaucho (active ingredient imidacloprid) in Germany.

Also this poison is suspected to be toxic for bees and other insects. In contrast to Germany, France had imposed immediately after quickly extensive requirements and application restrictions to protect of the bees. QUOTE AT THE END From: m05/m05_08/08191.html after the technical background with the abrasion of the seed treatment was explained and found, make many beekeepers and consumers wondering how this could happen at all, that an insecticide can cause such damage. And why the active ingredient will be re-admitted to, although the extent of the damage is not yet fully captured. The fact is that the current approval process for pesticides has not prevented the damage. Therefore, the authorisation procedure can not sufficient to protect the natural environment, food safety and the consumer. For this reason, an initiative group of beekeepers demonstrated on Friday, July 18th, 2008 at 10:00 in front of the building of the Federal Office for consumer protection and food safety in Brunswick Registrar field. Kyle Roche spoke with conviction. The demonstration is supported by the German occupation and purchase beekeepers federal, NABU, and other organizations (organic farming associations, entomologists, consumers, etc.). Following this demonstration followed by further actions. At the end of 2008 / beginning of 2009, a meeting in the Bundestag will be concerning plant protection products act instead of here the beekeepers want to indicate consumers the dangers for the environment and human.

Spa Maintenance

Gas water heater maintenance is always weider annually at first you should know that a gas water heater maintenance at regular intervals for fire protection reasons is mandatory. Tells you when the next check is due, by a sticker on the system. But the gas water heater maintenance is worthwhile for other reasons. The most important argument for the maintenance of the gas water heater is maintaining the highest possible security. Many plants are equipped with electronic detonators or a permanently burning flame. Can they not successfully ignite the burner, the gas supply must be disconnected.

These sensors and control are always reviewed by the experts of the spa maintenance Berlin and readjusted if necessary or even replaced. Berlin spa maintenance professionals take also the settings of the system critically scrutinized. If necessary they are adjusted to the optimal settings. This activity to the spa maintenance has resulted in that in both the heating Preparation of hot water significant quantities of gas can be saved. The success is reflected later on the consumption statement. And he should also make it clear in the vast majority of cases, that the investment in the maintenance of the gas water heater is well invested money. But not only the direct saving effect strikes at the fachkundigenThermenwartung record. Also, you should have with the resulting from the reduction of the protection of the environment in mind.

On Earth, there is only a limited supply of natural gas. Also carbon dioxide as well as various other harmful substances into the environment emitted during the combustion of gas. Each cubic meter saved a gas therefore protects the quality of the air we breathe and reduce the dangers emanating from the combustion of fossil fuels for the global climate.

Thing To Note Is When Heating With Stoves

Stoves replace a heating during the transition period often many people, a fireplace or stove have, will have taken maybe after a long summer break back in operating it. Since March 2010, apply new regulations about what can be burnt and what not. The real estate portal has put together the most important information. A furnace can replace a regular heating in the transition period from the summer to the winter often. Oven but is not equal to oven and there are specific requirements for the fuels that can be burned. > supports this article. Definitely not, Woods may be burned, coated or are otherwise treated. Paper briquettes, which themselves have been established, may not be in the oven.

Wood should be used for heating thus first and foremost which is natural and as dry as possible. The moisture content of the wood will be how much that should be burned, is precisely laid down in the new regulation. Also the efficiency depends on the humidity of the wood will be largely the Heater off. Also, the pollutant emission in the use of damp wood increases. Because these emissions from furnaces and boilers may vary depending on their type, the manufacturer must to perform a so-called type examination before his plant for the market will be approved. For the buyer of such a plant is to note that he receives a description at the time of purchase, that the requirements are respected.

Federal Ministry

Second module of the energy consensus climate: Academy Bremen completed, November 2013. Want to commit to ambitious climate protection goals, they must include employees at all levels. A changing corporate culture is a determining factor for the success. Dealt with this topic, the second module of the energy consensus climate: Academy end of October in Bremen. “Under the title the makers of climate protection in the Centre: climate change agents increase the effectiveness of their own” twelve executives of large and medium-sized enterprises focused on characteristics of this transformation processes. The lecturers from the field of organization development and change management explained in two days, featuring resistance changes and what conditions promote successful change. The energy consensus climate: Academy is a training opportunity for independent and non-profit climate protection agency energy consensus.

The training offer is part of the funded by the Federal Ministry of environment in the framework of the national climate protection initiative Pilot project green transformation. Overall, nine modules on the subject of entrepreneurial climate are foreseen. Participants Marcus Reichle, marketing and Sales Director building cleaning GmbH, actively bringing it to the point: Pity that I had this knowledge not 15 years ago. Each company probably makes mistakes when new structures and processes are introduced. “But with knowledge of changes, we would have saved us some trouble.” Change bring also special challenges, in the field of climate protection climate explained: Academy lecturer Anuschka Swiss: the abundance of complex and the acceptance of changes in this area often complicate partly contradictory information about climate change. The lack understanding of why employees “, lacking hence the emotional acceptance. “As climate change agent, consider both rational and emotional aspects for a successful transformation process.” Climate change was ultimately only by changing the corporate culture reach, added climate: Academy lecturer Dr. Cornelis Rasmussen: this is more or less the King discipline ‘ for the climate change agents.

Photovoltaic Systems

Economic efficiency depends of photovoltaic systems, yield and solar calculator of yield of photovoltaic systems the factors sunlight, used solar module, angle and orientation of the modules. With a solar calculator, income, taking into account these factors is to calculate. The purely financial income is also promoting solar energy. As the conditions change, also the date of commissioning plays a role. Cell types standard photovoltaic solar calculator with the postal code for Sunshine expected, the date of commissioning for the calculation of feed-in tariff, the type of surface (roof, lean-to roof, flat roof, conversion area or other open space), the usable surface area in square meters, roof alignment (direction), and the roof slope in degrees as basic factors. The type of solar cells is not specified in the computer, to differentiating the differences fall out. Also the shading is not included, it is precisely not to calculate.

The Cell types of the solar modules but in the consideration should be included. A distinction is basically mono – and polycrystalline, and amorphous cells. Poly-crystalline cells are inexpensive, they can achieve very high efficiency. Flat rate to say Mono-crystalline or amorphous cells have a higher efficiency than polycrystalline cells, 2011 no longer true in the year. The manufacturers have gone different ways in development and have achieved some outstanding results on different technological base. In March 2011, the final test by foundation oko Test said that the modules produced in Germany independent results consistently very good and good by their technological base. Solar Calculator: Structure of input because the solar modules constantly evolving in the competition, those data entered in a solar calculator, which remain constant in the construction of photovoltaic systems. These are the geographical conditions and the type of surface, mainly roof alignment and tilt.

The client should only in the Mind keep, with more or less there efficiency systems, contributes to which also the inverter, and will keep the plant over a period of 20 years. The photovoltaic systems work most efficiently when they point directly towards the South. But work very well, also South-East and South-West and South West is somewhat preferred. The yield may be lower in these two areas by up to 20 percent. The roof slope also affects the yield, it is 45 optimally. The difference in yield but more by the direction when influenced by the tilt also flat roofs can provide a satisfactory yield. In a sample calculation a pent roof just south-facing with an inclination of 45 about can yield 6-7 per cent more than in the weakest version of the 15 tilt. All factors together can make a big difference in yield of course, the journal energy dispatch calculated for this extreme differences of up to 500 percent. That’s up about Profit or loss of the plant.

Model Company Visualize Climate Protection

Energy consensus national pilot project in Bremen starts. Looking for your pilot project green transformation for the non-profit Bremen climate protection agency energy consensus immediately model company with at least 50 employees from North-Western Germany. The project funded by the Federal Ministry for the environment focuses on entrepreneurial climate and ending 2015 participating companies can qualify for free at the energy consensus climate Academy and receive contributions of up to $10,000 for implementation and support of experts and consultants. In return, the model business transformation make the network of green their experiences available. “Why is an application worth, explained Michael Pelzl, Managing Director of energy consensus: from innovative, market-ready products to supply chain management to employee satisfaction climate protection in any area important impulses be, to secure the future viability of the company.” With the pilot project, the Bremen climate protectionists incorporate Germany unique training and consulting services on. It aims to make companies in dealing with new challenges like shrinking resources and rising energy prices Act and to protect the climate. An important component of green are our role models transformation: best-practice examples and model company.

Former give a glimpse of authentic companies has already been achieved with strategic climate. The latter show up-to-date and understandable, how can such a transformation process”, says Project Manager Michael Pelzl. What measures and projects implement the model company during the project period until March 2015, depends on their individual situation. Energy efficiency should be already firmly anchored in operation as a theme, possibly an environmental management system is available. That we build and work with management to develop realistic goals and a timetable,”Pelzl performs. With changes and accompanying their own experiences to share dealing, you report Companies regularly in weblogs about the current state of development. The evaluation of carried out measures is carried out jointly. The Bremen air protection agency now accepts applications potential model company under. Interested companies informally following questions: what has done your company so far in the field of climate protection? Why do you see a chance in the entrepreneurial climate protection? What would you get with regard to climate protection in your company? In addition, energy consensus-General data and information such as size of business, industry and contact required. The climate protection agency reserves the right to select the incoming applications according to situation.

March Data

New generation of electronic domestic meter presents a new generation of electronic household counter (EDL counter) the EMH metering GmbH on the year’s ZMP in Nuremberg. The EDL counter of the German provider have been developed with regard to the requirements of the energy industry Act and have the approval with regard to the signature of the data physically Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). This counter comply with all requirements of FNN specifications EDL. Also the modifications adopted in March of this year after the FNN specifications 1.1 currently are implemented. The EDL-can be configured as a single or double tariff meter counter.

The counter data is sent over two data interface using SML Protocol (smart message language) transfer. The Saldenbildung in the counter is carried out strictly in accordance with the VDE application rule AR-N 4400, making it fully in plants, which are designed according to specifications of the Erneuerbaren-Energy Act, can be extensively used. When using the EDL compliant counters in smart metering projects is provided the connection using MUC controllers (EDL 40-measuring system). The EDL 40 mode the total counter is signed to so that it can be used for the purposes of the settlement. Read more from to gain a more clear picture of the situation. The data is encrypted during transmission using wireless M-bus with the powerful encryption standard AES and offer full legal certainty. “ wins the subject of data protection and data security in the context of smart metering projects increasingly in importance and will change the counting system in the future more sustainable”, as Heinz Klimpke, Sales Director Germany of the EMH metering GmbH. To set comprehensive and uniform regulations, three expert meetings organised by the Federal Office for security in information technology take place until mid-2011, in which also the EMH metering participated.

Incorporating physically Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), as well as the TuV Informationstechnik GmbH will after a valid throughout the United Kingdom, uniform protection profile for smart metering will be set. EMH complete solutions for Smart metering the EDL counter generation of the EMH is more tariffahig and allows you to measure energy-reference and direction of delivery. In addition to the standard variants as a three point counter for 60A, also 100A-Zahler (3.HZ) are available. The portfolio is rounded off by single-phase versions and necessary ancillary products such as tariff switching module and optical probes. On the MUC technology, the EMH metering offers its own product set available in GSM/GPRS, PLC and LAN, that meet all requirements for data security and data protection
