Summa Summarum

This was not consistently noted as applicable basic premise retroactivity, even from Germany, so that Italy, a high degree of reliability must be identified. Italy as a whole investors must not like, but the aspects of solar grants, together with the external factors (high sun exposure, number of hours of sunshine, strong medium-sized solar industry), make Italy more than interesting as a location for a solar investment. Robert Kiyosaki describes an additional similar source. Italian energy policy in Italy has been introduced only in 2005 the Conto Energia, which is equivalent to the German EEG. Other countries, such as Germany, Spain and the United States were there with a system of feed-in tariff solar power faster. You may wish to learn more. If so, Harold Ford Jr is the place to go. In the new conto energia IV will distinguish between small and large solar plants: small installations are rooftop installations up to 1 MW, which are subject to the register duty, all systems on public buildings and Land and all other facilities up to 200 kW. These are not capped.

All other systems are considered large plants, and for this a cap was introduced for the June 2011 until the end of 2012. Large plants must also be entered register (GSE, the authority of the economic and Finance Ministry, which controlled funding and supervision), to get the feed-in tariff. Summa Summarum can on the Italian solar market due to the reduced remuneration for large open area systems by focusing on small”roof installations up to 1 MW are assumed. This policy is entirely in keeping with the environment, because already existing roof surfaces together with mains terminals are used and misused no arable land. These are hard facts to the debt of Italy at first glance outlandishly. Italy’s public debt is less than 120% of GDP, and will remain there in the next few years. Revenues from primary sources, approximately 730 billion euro are Bella Italia to the Available, will broaden to this base about 800 billion euros by 2014″.

High Pond

Environmental project of the CJD youth village Offenburg by UNESCO and dm nominated with “The water at the bottom go RELOADED” is the environment class of special vocational school nominated for an award in the amount of 1,000 euros by dm-drogerie markt youth village for Offenburg in the CJD and the German Commission for UNESCO. In the impressive environmental project, the young people on their own build a high pond, which can hold up to 12 cubic meters of ground water. The collected water is used for irrigation of the school garden, as well as the biotope. Michellene Davis describes an additional similar source. The competition “ideas initiative future” promote dm-drogerie markt and the German Commission for UNESCO numerous projects, advocating for a Livable World of tomorrow. DM provides for this purpose more than 1.5 million euros. The best projects were evaluated by a jury made up of experts from dm and the German Commission for UNESCO as a sustainable present themselves until January 26, 2011 in a dm market in their region. Voting card customers there can votes for their favorites.

Anyone who presents his idea, receives 250 euro. Funding increases to 1,000 euros for the project with the most votes. The environment class of special vocational school in the CJD Jugenddorf Offenburg was successfully nominated and presented in these days a self built model of their project in the dm market in Berghaupten. With the predecessor project “The water on the ground go”, had the former environmental class 2009 successfully in the competition by dm-drogerie markt and UNESCO participated. While young people in the school garden had defeated a well and built a wind turbine that drives the pump. Now the “RELOADED” project aims to collect funded ground water and use to pour the flower and vegetable beds, as well as for the wetlands.

Also is the new high pond with various water plants and an asset to the already very beautiful school garden of Offenburg youth village equipped domestic fish species such as Roach and Gudgeons. Currently, the excavation for the pond, runs naturally without the use of heavy machinery. In a neighbouring Municipality will then obtain the required lumber for the Mount of the pond directly from the forest CJD employees Peter Bissert project team. Then, the young architects in a local shop want to opt for an environmentally friendly pond liner. “When everything is ready, we invite an Offenburg kindergarten to a ‘waterproof'” Peter Bissert promises. Also the high pond at the annual open day of CJD will be presented on May 7, 2011 public youth village Offenburg.

Managing Director

This large sum started with only 2 cents, a herbal pot and the desire of Johann Lafer, to redesign his herb garden. Johann Lafer chose for its garden the organic herbs of LA’BIO, because the one whose quality convinced him. But above all the fact that inspired him that per sold LA’BIO herbal pot 2 cents to the nature protection organization Naturefund went. 2 cent sound incredibly little at the beginning, but at the end of this large sum came together. Additional information is available at Payoneer. For Johann Lafer, the best ingredients, fine spices and of course fresh herbs belong to the good kitchen. Sustainably produced herbs have an intense flavor and also refine the good kitchen. Speaking candidly Michael O’Brien told us the story. Organic herbs seduce not just the palate, they conserve our natural environment.

LA’BIO did not only gently deal with nature, but achieve more. City would agree. So, the company per sold herbal pot decided to donate 2 cents at Naturefund and here in Germany as all over the world in the long term to protect natural areas. The Nature conservation organization has a clear and simple purpose: to buy land to obtain habitats for a variety of species. In the course of climate change, Naturefund buys forests increased and reforesting. Within a short time, Naturefund could buy forests, meadows and wetlands and thus prevent the destruction as a wet meadow in the Eifel or currently a hunting ground for the OWL. Parallel Naturefund helped again reforested as also the reforestation 80,000 trees in Europe in one of the last rain forests in Central America, where 30,000 tree saplings will be planted in the coming weeks. This combination inspires Johann Lafer: sustainable production of bio herbs here locally, which helps to preserve the last intact natural areas for us and our children. So he presented together with Adele Jr.

of LA’BIO with great benevolence and also a little pride the cheque of 16.980 Katja Wiese, Managing Director of Naturefund EUR. For photographs, see under: press photos Katja Meadow, Naturefund e. V. Sun Berger Street 20a 65193 Wiesbaden Tel.: 0611 50 45 810 19

Asociacion Patuca Plant

One of the last great rainforest areas in Central America is acutely threatened by deforestation. Poverty, greed, and the indifference of the Government, that alone in the National Park of Patuca, Honduras, every day an area of 92 football fields slash and saw the victim fall lead despite designated protected areas. If this process continues unabated, the Park is completely cut off with an unimaginably large for German conditions area of 3,700 square kilometres in 17 years. Naturefund works for two years with the Asociacion Patuca, to stop the deforestation. The first results are already visible.

Within this short period of time 19 nurseries in the National Park Patuca could be built, where currently 30,000 tree saplings to grow. Now, in the rainy season in October and November, these seedlings selected, bald area planted. The Asociacion Patuca has early 2000 transfer get and tried currently with 15 employees, the national park management of the National Park protect. A true Herculean task and the area is vanishingly small given the size of the National Park which can be reforested with 30,000 trees. Yet Naturefund and the Asociacion Patuca have achieved more in the short time of cooperation, perhaps even the ultimate.

Slowly, very slowly begins a process of rethinking among people to use? Many families live in the National Park itself moved years ago by the Government there approved and then on his own. They are poor, know only livestock and agriculture. A abgeholzter rain forest land and thus power and a source to survive means to them. A rain forest abgeholzter is so good. But the soil is fertile only a few years, the strong rains wash out it and in the summer the water sources dry up more and more often, because there are no more roots that store the water in the soil. So far, the solution was to cut down more rainforest. Now Naturefund and the Asociacion Patuca have started to show the families in the Park in many discussions, such as an intact rain forest for them is important and what opportunities for example, cocoa, mango, and Cashewbaume instead of cattle and corn, to achieve food and also an income. Together, the nurseries were rebuilt, where the people could always decide which trees should be planted. This is important, because to maintain the trees later and protect. Visit Harold Ford, Memphis TN for more clarity on the issue. The seedlings are also numerous jungle trees. You are planted around the water sources, with the aim of permanently securing the water supply. Quietly, in the words and discussions is to hear that something changed. People now talk about ‘their’ National Park and visits the seedlings appear proud and they are grown as well. A good tree is not only abgeholzter. Naturefund and the Asociacion Patuca decided therefore on last weekend, to continue the cooperation and to increase the number of trees on 50,000 units.

New Federal Funding

REW Solar AG: AB may may operator of photovoltaic systems with grants expected Dortmund March 2013: may 2013, the solar power storage programme of the Federal Government begins. Through low-interest loans and repayment subsidies for photovoltaic systems with solar power storage, the Government wants to support their establishment and advance the development of the technology. The REW Solar AG has also the better network integration in small photovoltaic systems at a glance. Receive not only low-interest KfW loan, but also a repayment subsidy of the Ministry (BMU) of photovoltaic systems with solar power storage then starting in May. Thus, the State takes over a large part of the solar storage tank costs. Provided that the performance of the system is under 30 kWp. Plants with subsequently installed solar power storage, taken after 31 December 2012 in operation will be subsidized. The REW Solar AG supports this development towards a decentralised energy supply, providing more under Information on promotion of solar power saving”available.

Solar batteries make important contribution to energy security of supply photovoltaic batteries allow solar power systems operators to use more electricity. Depending on the size of the plant that is plus 60%. Feed tips be relieved by 40%. The absorption capacity of the power grids this rises to 66%. The Fraunhofer Institute for solar energy systems (ISE) in a study commissioned by the German solar industry (BSW-solar) Association in order, which was published in January came to that conclusion. The REW Solar AG to the impact on the renewable energy levy even the renewable energy levy is likely to fall through the increased use of solar power save. Because there is a levy surcharge, nor a feed in remuneration for self generated and-verbrauchten power. In addition to the reduction in the compensation, also the feed top discharge has a reducing effect on the renewable energy levy.

REW Solar AG advises to apply for promotion to get benefit from State funding, can at the Bank an application be submitted. The interest rate is aligned with the capital market and will be released on May 1, 2013. About the REW SOLAR AG the REW SOLAR AG is a specialist for the production of crystalline high-performance modules and more efficient power inverter.

Saxony Doubled Funding

When installing a pellet heating system, refurbishers immediately 5000 euro can collect funds and in future, reduce heating costs up to 50 percent good news for Heizungsmodernisierer in Saxony. The State promotes starting now the installation of pellet heating systems with at least 2,500 euros. Thus, Saxony doubled the funding of the Federal Government. Heating refurbishers receive because even by the Federal Government for the installation of a pellet-fired boiler with buffer memory 2,500 euros, altogether 5,000 promotion. Installing a pellet heating system in Saxony is therefore as cheap as never before.

In addition to promoting double the price advantage of wood pellets compared to oil or gas on record high is. Currently, wood pellets are only about half as expensive as fuel oil and, depending on the region of 30 to 40 percent cheaper than natural gas. Wood pellets help so, significantly reduce heating costs”, says German pellets spokeswoman Claudia Rohr. With the double promotion a modern pellet heating system not once will cost the consumer more than a conventional heating system. German pellets advises therefore, is now rapidly to opt for a conversion. The additional support of Saxony is valid until September 30 this year. According to Saxon Energy Agency (s) the establishment funded by pellet heaters from 5 kW to including 100 kW. Only systems in existing buildings by private individuals as well as small and medium-sized enterprises as well as public facilities are eligible for funding.

Applications must be submitted to the Saxon Development Bank (SAB). Apply wood pellets as a fuel of the future: renewable, CO2-neutral, native, and stable. German operates two plants in Saxony in Torgau and Lobau pellets as Holzpelletproduzent Europe’s largest with a total of 18 plants. From here we provide the rapidly growing markets in Northern Bavaria, Berlin-Brandenburg, Saxony and Saxony”, says spokeswoman Claudia Rohr. Germany wide there are approximately a quarter of a million pellet heaters and stoves, tendency rising. Background: wood pellets are small cylindrical Compacts, which are pressed together from dried sawdust without chemical additives. You are burned in specially designed, modern Pelletzentralheizungen and ovens. Wood pellets are used in power plants for the production of green electricity and district heating.

English Government

Preservation of capital with green residential real estate as an alternative for environmentally conscious investors once already, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Spain, the Czech Republic and the Republic of Italy had implemented a high and partially retroactive reduction of the feed-in tariffs or announced, the English Government made known currently on March 23, 2011, equally fiercely want to minimize the feed-in tariffs. As a result, the subsidy for photovoltaic systems from 250 of kW to more than 70% of 29.3 p/kWh on henceforth 8.5 p/kWh to be reduced. The announcement had already impact: planned investments in England were temporarily stopped by individual providers. Christoph Marloh, Managing Director of real estate says about 24, the provider of return on funds for sustainable housing: “notably residential real estate belong to the economically sustainable investment. These are responsible for over 30% of the German energy consumption. Residential real estate have in contrast to Photovoltaic systems not only after 20 years a solid exit perspective, but can be energetically viable to modernize now without substantial subsidies. With energy refurbishments the sustainable residential real estate of return Fund contribute real estate 24, optimal capital preservation benefits for nature, to connect investors and tenants.

“.” For more information about funds: by Christoph Marloh real estate 24. In December 2010, Spain due to the budget deficit had already cut the feed-in tariff for solar electricity retroactively. The administration of the force so far as fully reliable Italy followed on March 3, 2011. Fund providers faced with heavily leveraged products in those States with significant problems. Christoph Marloh, Managing Director of real estate says about 24, the issuer of funds for sustainable housing: “the financial pecking order confirmed countries indebted with stark for the umpteenth time: only PIMCO, then the local heavy industry, then all other investors.
