Nuremberg air protection agency greenOrange becoming innovative product of electricity costs quickly, easily and reduce as far as possible without investment wants everyone – but many people do not know how they should do it. The climate protection agency greenOrange has now developed an instrument of Nuremberg, with one almost at the same time can teach saving electricity thieves. The product is called “EnergieCheck Home” and consists of a sockets current meter and a simple but sophisticated instructions you can use to tune the main electricity consumers in the budget without effort. You can inspect 14 devices (including lighting) with the EnergieCheck home their savings out. Connect with other leaders such as Dana Carvey here. The user learns about a simple test, which devices bring the biggest savings – it starts, because that has the largest savings.

Then it goes: while such as washing, along the way to measure the power consumption of the washing machine and determines the annual cost with the instructions. Now he proposes EnergieCheck home several measures to reduce the power consumption per wash. It has implemented this, you can determine how much to save every year. The trick is that most of the measures are immediately and at no cost to implement, so it saves money from the moment of implementation. The current measurement is carried out only if a device is already used, therefore a time not even overhead. On the website of greenOrange users of the EnergieChecks find an extended range, which provides further measures for the discussed devices E.g.. So the optimization of consumption can be increased at any time further. The EnergieCheck home is aimed at consumers and caters to both homeowners and tenants. The product is interesting but also for businesses: energy supply companies can offer their customers the EnergieCheck home, construction and electronics markets can absorb the instrument in its range and energy consultants can score with its customers with a greater added value. greenOrange cooperation requests is available at any time open face. more information: energiecheck Wolfdietrich Ederer greenOrange, Ceramix AG

Photovoltaic Industry Addresses The Challenges Of The EEG Amendment

5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic plants on the Augsburg fair RENEXPO on 06 June 2008 the Federal Government has adopted the amendment of the EEG (law on the expansion of renewable energies). Additional information at tesla supports this article. This envisages a drastic reduction of subsidies for operators of photovoltaic systems. According to the Federal Environment Ministry, single supply regulation for solar and roof systems should fall from 2009 to 9.2 percent and Feiflachen plants to 9.8 percent. The photovoltaic industry must address this challenge. First it can be cast through a stringent quality assurance yield loss contrary to.

Among other things, this is achieved by improved measurements of sample modules. For testing there are essentially 2 DIN standards: for terrestrial crystalline Silizium-Photovoltaik-(PV-) modules and for terrestrial Dunnschicht-Photovoltaik-(PV) modules. The measurement of solar modules using solar Simulator or by field measurement is described herein. For thin-film modules is provided in the draft that the light treatment (light soak) a measurement as long as it is carried out, until the value deviates less than 2% of the mean value of the measurements. The 5th Congress of the Union for operators of photovoltaic systems provides more information, details and suggestions on these and other topics”on 10 October in the framework of the RENEXPO. Here, experts from the science, practice and policy explain in lectures about the market prospects for German operator of photovoltaic systems and their influence on politics, economy, climate change and energy security. The second part focuses on technical innovations such as the integration of buildings with PV thin-film modules. Still is lectured topics Assembly systems and requirements for inverters.

The complete conference program is available at. The RENEXPO is an international trade fair for renewable energy and energy efficient building & renovation. This year it will take place from October 9-12, 2008 for the ninth time. The RENEXPO is unique due to the variety of topics. The subject range vonAltbausanierung on heating with Sun and wood up to passive houses, block heat and power plants, mobility, heat pump, hydro power and wind power. In addition to the exhibition and the Congress a wide free lecture programme the visitors.
