the example of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico last year sparked the explosion of the deepwater horizon oil rig”the biggest oil disaster in the history of the United States from the almost 780 billion litres of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico concluded. In addition to the oil, that persistent foul large parts of the region, flocked also up to 200,000 liters of methane into the sea. Methane is considered one of the worst greenhouse gases and is broken down very slowly in the atmosphere. On average takes about 12 years to a particle of methane is absorbed into other compounds. This is usually much faster into the sea, because here exist microorganisms that break down the particles of methane and put into water and carbon dioxide, oxygen consumption.

By measuring the oxygen content of the water now, you can determine how many bacteria are present, and how quickly the methane is degraded. So far, researchers however were able to gain any satisfactory results on these bacteria and their propagation rate. For more information see this site: Darcy Stacom. The disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has as at least a small positive side, for now is to gather researchers for the first time possible extensive data about the naturally occurring bacteria. According to first research it turns out, they multiply faster than expected. So the methane content in the vicinity of the hole was already almost normal end of August, so only a few months after the oil spill. To do this, the number of bacteria needed to have multiplied almost explosively. The number of bacteria will have doubled every 3.5 days calculation result. Thus, only negligible amounts of methane gas in the atmosphere are likely to be received.

This recognition primarily for climate warming is relevant, because among the masses of ice in the Arctic are about 3000 times as large amounts of methane as are already in the atmosphere. Due to climate warming, they are released slowly and accelerate warming even further. Would the Methane-eating bacteria however behave similarly to in the Arctic as in the Gulf of Mexico, then could have the release of methane in large quantities of significantly less impact than expected. Reliable statements can also but still not meet, because the conditions for the bacteria in the Arctic are of course very different than in the warm Gulf of Mexico.

Moreover, the network charges are increased 2009 significantly, which means that many providers higher prices have to pay for the use of transmission networks and the transport of electricity to the consumer. For 2010, the Federal Network Agency anticipates increasing power interconnection charges, which ultimately shall be allocated by the company on the end customer. Depending on how the individual factors in the suppliers in the weight drop, it comes to price adjustments up or down “, so Bohg. Some companies compensate for the additional costs arising from renewable energy levy and electricity of lower procurement costs. The much larger part of the provider, consumers must pay, however, more next year “.” A price comparison and the possibility of change of electricity provider can consumers protect themselves but effectively coming price increases “, advises Bohg.

So, not only several hundred dollars can be saved by choosing a new electric provider. Also, contracts with long-term price guarantees protect further nasty surprises in the next year. Through consumer portals such as ( power) or free service hotline 0800-10 30-499 can consumers quickly and easily about alternatives in their region informed and free to switch to a cheaper electricity supplier. Background: Is renewable energy levy standardised 2010 within the framework of the renewable energies Act (EEG) the so-called renewable energy levy to the 1 January 2010 nationwide uniform raised 2,047 cents / kWh. So the rate is nearly twice as high as in 2009 in the next year and will make a significantly in the electric bill of the consumer felt. The renewable energy levy is an important instrument for the promotion of renewable energies and is supported by all end users in Germany. So far, the end customers of utilities paid pro rata the ratio of renewable energy fed into their region.

The load was so far about 1.2 cents / kWh and will rise in 2010. The operators of renewable energy sources benefit from assessment by a legally fixed compensation rate for the energy loss is guaranteed. The implementation of the EEG serves the climate and environmental protection and belongs to a series of legislative measures, which are to promote the use of renewable energy sources and reduce dependence on fossil fuels in Germany. Corresponding data material is provided like this press release upon request. is the independent consumer portal of the Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck, for all common tariffs in Germany. It currently includes the categories of electricity, gas, DSL, investments, and insurance for legal protection, furniture, residential, private liability, car, keepers liability and is constantly being added and updated. The consumer can thereby with minimal free checking, whether there are cheaper rates for him, and, where appropriate, immediately change. The complete service of change of is completely free of charge for the consumer and about in any case, the customer receives the original conditions of the provider, in some cases even additional, not available from the provider themselves bonuses and Discounts.

Energy cooperative waives diesel production already fossil Beiersdorf-Freudenberg, 04.09.2009 – the costs of global warming will cost up to three times more money than previously calculated, the prestigious Imperial College London in a new study warns. Frequently John Mclaughlin has said that publicly. The costs should be Jahrlich(!) up to $500 billion. Thus, the estimates are up to three times higher than the figures forecast by the climate change secretariat of the United Nations (UNFCCC). For more information see Martin O’Malley. World’s largest emitter is the still excessive burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil, but so far underestimated negative factors include the processing industry, the mass tourism, mining and the growing traffic. That powerful fuel and a balanced CO2 balance not must mutually, the Brandenburg-based energy cooperative Freudenberg proves EC. Manufactures CEHATROL, a in accordance with DIN EN 590 certified biofuel of II generation. This is entirely of biogenic raw and Residues produced preferably straw from the region – and is not to be confused with conventional biodiesel. Who privately in his company required more than 300 l diesel a year, can convert now to CEHATROL and thus environmentally friendly fuel balance”, explains CEO Frank Knauer, it combined easily in all diesel engines, etc. can be used due to its synthetic composition and can even be mixed. And the price is for our cooperative members below the regular gas station prices.” More information about the energy cooperative of Freudenberg and CEHATROL on.

Market incentive program is changed from 15 August / campaign ‘ can my heating more ‘ and good news for environmental and cost-conscious homeowners BAFA explain the main changes: from August 15, 2012, the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA) improved its subsidies for solar thermal, heat pumps and biomass boilers in the market incentive programme. For solar thermal BAFA 90 euros per square meter for the investment are still, now however at least 1,500 euros per plant. This new minimum sum pays off for small and medium-sized plants: for an average investment of 13 square meters the base funding amounted to 1.170 euro so far. Condition for the promotion: the system provides hot water and support the heating system at the same time. The campaign can’t my heating”of the non-profit co2online GmbH accompanies the launch of the revised programme with a topic special on my

My gives tips on applying the topic special informed homeowners about Solar thermal systems and introduces the new eligibility requirements. An expert of the campaign partners BAFA gives practical tips for filling out the application form in the interview. As global warming community we are pleased about the improved support for solar thermal”says Tanja Loitz, Managing Director of co2online. The use of solar thermal energy is most effective when homeowners while increasing the efficiency of their heating. “A hydraulic adjustment provides the optimum setting of the heating system ensure that the heating costs go down”, so Loitz. Hydraulic leveling: consumer benefits twice in addition to the base funding for solar collectors pays BAFA continue a bonus grant in the amount of 500 euros for the replacement of the boiler against a gas condensing boiler, a biomass boiler or a heat pump. Condition is the hydraulic adjustment.

While a skilled craftsmen optimally adjusts all components of a heating system. The consumer benefits not only from the 500 euro of funding, but also by decreasing heating costs. The reason: The hydraulic comparison is evenly the heat in the House, which decreases energy consumption of heating and solar collectors on the roof to provide a proportionally larger share of the heating energy required. “More facts around the hydraulic leveling my defroster does more can” on the campaign site available. “My heating more my heating can more” is a campaign of the non-profit consultancy co2online. The nationwide campaign is funded by the Federal Ministry of environment in the framework of the national climate protection initiative and supported by the Consumer Council energy advice. The Ostfalia University of applied sciences is a scientific partner. Together with a cross-industry network with partners from associations, business and trade media are consumers of personal efficiency potential hydraulic leveling itself in terms of informed and motivated to become active.

‘ Climate seeks protection supports the largest Carrotmob with energy consultants / in Hamburg, Munich, Passau, and Luneburg actions take place at the same time next Thursday, October 21, 2010 is the climate protection directly into the hands of consumers. Each so-called car red mobs will be held in Hamburg, Munich, Passau, Luneburg. A Carrotmob is the opposite of a boycott: here people gather together to consume in a particular business. For this, the operator undertakes to invest a certain percentage of the turnover in the climate-friendly restructuring of its business. “The money will be invested also makes sense, and by the power of the consumer in the future a maximum CO2 emissions can be avoided, professional help is needed: the campaign promoted by the Ministry for environment climate seeks protection” ( the Carrotmobber supported in all four cities with each an energy consultant. They have already examined the potential savings in stores Depending on Thursday and more is consumed, the more the proposed measures can be implemented at the end. The Carrotmob day organized by the student network sneep provides a Europe-wide first: never before such an action in so many places took place at the same time.

The message of the car red mob is easy: targeted consumer makes all the difference. It is important that the successes are concretely measurable, just so is clear, how important the commitment of the individual is. “, Steffi sour Ballesteros, project manager of the campaign says climate seeks protection”. Our energy consultants, calculate how much CO2 can be avoided by replacing an old appliance, use of energy-efficient lighting or other energy-saving measures.” The stores participating in the individual Hamburg: EDEKA, corner Easter/Heuss road, from 8-8: 00; 15 percent of the daily turnover are invested in energy-efficient conversion. Special action at 18:30. Munich: country man ‘ s organic market (Barer Strasse 54-56), 6 pm 8 pm; 50 percent of generated revenue are in the energy-efficient remodeling invested; Framework programme: organic champagne reception and live music by Sharyhan.

A CHP plant can heat and power and achieved a degree of efficiency by some of 90prozent. In times of increasing energy prices are more and more consumers looking for more efficient and cheaper ways to produce energy. Cogeneration here represent an option that are characterized by a very high efficiency of up to 90%. The electricity is generated by a generator. A heat exchanger is for the heat in use. The this heat can be used to heat, for example, heating water, which is used for space heating.

As the possibilities of use of cogeneration are so versatile, also the usable fuels are so variable. A CHP plant can be operated with fossil or renewable fuels. Bernie Sanders is likely to increase your knowledge. The ideal case for operating a CHP is the complete coverage of own needs of electricity, produces more electricity than is needed, so this electricity into the power grid can be fed. The generated heat is used for heating, as well as for the preparation of hot water. The priority lies with the CHP on the heat production of this demand for heat in the foreground is the cogeneration plant is operated heat led. In modular designed systems, individual units to can be switched depending on the heating requirement and off.

Smaller devices (so-called mini CHP), consisting only of a unit are throttled down for this purpose in the output. It operates the CHP primarily according to the electricity demand (called the power-run CHP), the heat which is produced but not used, must be saved. Alternatively, there is the possibility to dissipate excess heat away from a cooler (heat). The levy of the generated heat into the environment naturally lowers the efficiency of microturbines and should be avoided if possible. You do not have the ability to feed electricity into the local power grid is so, for example, with weekend cottages in secluded areas has the Purgation of excess heat often the only solution. But even during operation of the cogeneration with renewable energies is the system power led typically operated, since there is considerable feed-in tariffs the generated excess of electricity is fed into the public grid and remunerated accordingly. This feed-in tariff makes it lucrative to run that a maximum power generation takes place a CHP plant. Under certain circumstances, it can also happen that the operator pretends the required performance level of systems as optimally as possible to be able to offer services in a. Christian Munch
