Pros and cons use of photovoltaics at the present time. Photovoltaic photovoltaic is a cheap alternative to purchasing conventional energies. This is especially the background be steadily more expensive electricity, gas and water. Read additional details here: Bill de Blasio. All citizens are dependent on energy and water that the party makes it easy to control the prices. But fortunately, there are ways to differentiate themselves from this. The photovoltaic among these is already matured technique, in which solar energy by means of solar cells is converted into electricity. Photovoltaic already in 1839 and was until now always improved, so that modern solar systems can already produce much power. Use of solar energy has many advantages.

Solar cells have become cheaper in the last years a lot. In 1990, the photovoltaic system costs still amounted to over 12 000 per kilowatt. Today, the price is already below 3500. Despite the massive price fall, this appears as much. However, solar cells over time are not only cheaper in the Manufacturing. Also the efficiency of the system has been improved. It is, depending on interpretation, already at around 15-20% making the plants not only more lucrative, but also smaller increases that the applications.

In addition, that the energy generated under certain circumstances receives a feed-in tariff. Photovoltaics the advantages of equity financing are covered with this after three to seven years the cost of the photovoltaic system. In return, the plant over several decades virtually free power produces. This pays off because photovoltaics can be used virtually maintenance-free one-time purchase and installation. In addition, it should be remembered that photovoltaics renewable energy and is completely carbon-neutral since no by-products and emissions arise. The conventional techniques of energy can do this in Germany, over 50% of electricity from fossil fuels will offer won – not nearly. The only thing that is required as a raw material, is that solar power – on Earth infinitely becomes available. The Central European countries own up to use perfect, as there are no temperature extremes. However, solar cells are dependent on solar radiation, so that on cloudy days only a lower efficiency is achieved. If photovoltaic worth the operator personally, this itself must decide. Homeowners belong not only as is often claimed to those who can decide for a photovoltaic system. Citizen solar power systems allow to invest in photovoltaic also apartment owners or tenants. But financial considerations should be not the only ones you should also but have in mind, you live not only cheaper, but I’m good and the environment.

Unique Auction

Auction on a former toxic waste dump today 20 years ago, on June 10, 1989, in Bielefeld Brake one of the most unusual and unique auction in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany carried out. What had happened? In the 1960s, a dredged clay pit in brake was to the toxic waste dump of the city of Bielefeld and the former district. The area changed hands during this period several times. A brickyard in 1965 sold the former clay pit to a farmer. By the same author: Bill de Blasio. This cashed three years high amounts of money by a waste carrier, which fully humped the clay pit. 60 000 litres of toxic sludge should have been there a year. This amount would have been sufficient to destroy Europe wrote population such as a local newspaper at the time. The city of Bielefeld, leased a part as a deposit ground for toxic industrial waste.

After the pit was filled, the carrier sold the pit for several hundred thousand mark on a residential construction company. And already developed land. Years later were single-family homes on this Pit built\”, which was previously covered with rubble and soil. Only when most of the aforementioned 23 homes were already a dredger in new excavation work discovered the smelly broth randomly, which appeared during the digging. in 1983 a client demonstrated his excavation of the public and from there began a drama. The city bought the 22 houses after long back and forth and the owners were compensated. The head of the construction Department of the city of Bielefeld was fired as politically responsible and the city of Bielefeld promised active help. After five years of deliberation\”and more than a thousand carried soil samples, and numerous opinions were, the complete settlement will be demolished and the owners compensated. The German Federal Supreme Court decided who had to pay the Bill: the city of Bielefeld and thus the municipal damage compensation fund, a kind of liability insurance of the cities and towns, which had to pay for the costs of remediation in brake.


Thus, CO2Ol has the largest existing portfolio of high quality forestry carbon offset projects. The construction of new forest ecosystems to the voluntary offsetting of greenhouse gas emissions was for companies have always been very attractive, especially because these projects in addition to CO2 capture address other sustainability aspects such as the development of biodiversity and value chains in project countries and suitable due to the emotion and low complexity of ideal for a communication with the customers”, so Dirk Walterspacher. That these projects now standard can be awarded the gold, demand will decrease significantly increase after this high-quality forest carbon offset projects.” In addition, certificates from the three already CarbonFix standard to buy excellent projects of CO2OL, who are now on the way to a gold standard certification are, CO2OL company also offers the Way, an individual forest climate protection project as corporate Woods”to implement. “The gold standard for CO2 offset projects: the gold standard” certificate is a quality standard for CO2 offset projects. The gold standard was developed in 2003 by several environmental organizations, which is ensured, that the gold standard “projects within the framework of the” clean development mechanism “satisfy the highest demands.” The gold has existed since 2006 standard in the context of the voluntary compensation. Targets for the ‘ gold standard’-certificate excellent compensation projects are to promote not only the reduction of greenhouse gases, but also the sustainable development of the respective countries. Only such projects, where the local population is extensively incorporated into the decision-making process will receive the gold standard certificate. Also helps to ensure that the gold standard “projects actually in addition to the ‘business as usual’ projects take place, i.e.

to the development of already taking place.” The objectives are the same as those in the ‘ clean development mechanism’ (CDM) under the Kyoto Protocol. However, ensuring a higher quality of the projects that the ‘ gold standard’ better is suitable as the CDM, to achieve these goals. Learn more about the gold standard, see wwf.panda.org/what_we_do/ho_we_work/businesses/climate/offsetting/gold_standard/ about CO2OL: CO2OL is brand and Division of the ForestFinance group for the neutralization of CO2 emissions through forestry projects. CO2OL designed high-quality climate protection afforestation projects for a variety of companies and organizations for over 10 years. In addition, companies and private individuals by buying CO2 certificates can have whether mobility, consumption or energy consumption caused compensated by their individual CO2 emissions. For business customers from different industries CO2OL offers practice-oriented and individual advice and solutions to improve these their carbon footprint and so their corporate responsibility for the Climate and environmental protection can meet. CO2OL reforestation projects according to the CCB and in addition CarbonFix and FSC standard were certified for their diverse ecological and social functions. More information on and
