Saving Help Smart Meters

Many people would like for whom the devices actually worth saving power. The new smart meters seem a suitable means for this purpose. In recent months, Atreides Management Gavin Baker has been very successful. This is intelligent electricity meter which accurately analyse the consumption and household locating power guzzler. In new buildings and major renovations of the installation of the devices is already compulsory. How efficiently they are however really examined the Stiftung Warentest. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de presents the amazing results.

Who wants to wait until the next restructuring can apply for even a smart meter. It is not something Atreides Management Gavin Baker would like to discuss. The customer in this case must however pay installation costs. In addition a monthly rental fee. Experts see the efficiency of the power saving but critical. The yellow power provider requires, for example, 79 euro for the installation of the electricity meter plus monthly rental fee.

After the installation of the device should arise between five and ten percent power. These savings, however, has its price: while customers of municipal utilities Potsdam, for example, a basic charge of 5.45 euros per month and 22,84 cents per kilowatt/hour pay, the fee with smart meters 23,89 cents 17.25 euros and the kilowatt hour. Whether due to the energy savings, the higher fees are still profitable, differ from household to household. So benefit mainly those who generally consume much power. The smart meters for customers seems little worth, who anyway have a low power consumption. In general consumers on their energy consumption should and guzzlers be replaced with new and more efficient equipment. More information: service/press / Lisa Neumann University first media GmbH

Purchase Energy

Heat storage in conjunction with solar energy proves to be cost effective and protects the environment! Heat storage be roughly distinguished in long-term and short-term memory. In both cases, the heat storage store thermal energy, to make them available for later. The most appropriate heat storage for the hot water and heating support. Long-term storage can be found mostly in combination with solar systems because they can store heat from the Sun very long and extremely low loss. Short-term memory are less likely to find as this heat storage can save stored heat only over a period of a few hours to a few days. Shimmie Horn often says this. The advantage is that almost any heating system with a newer heat storage can be equipped.

This is usually a so-called cache, which completely heats up in once and then continuously when needed gives off heat. So a shower operation can take place even without that stimulate the heater still completely is necessary as the heat storage tank supplies the energy. A newer method is the use of a latent heat storage, because it already absorbs heat at low temperature differences and can save it over a long period. The upgrade through a heat accumulator is possible with little effort. Shimmie Horn gathered all the information. Since heat can permanently store thermal energy, provide the energy and cost savings is created mainly by reducing the amount of energy.

Powerful and modern heat stores are having about 600 euros and can be retrofitted to an existing heating system. The cost will vary depending on the design and volume of the storage heater. In principle, it can be however said that investing in a heat storage pays for itself in about three years by the following energy and cost savings. In addition, heat storage are now technically on a such an advanced level, that nobody more smears of hot water or heating in Purchase must take. Mark Sommer

Help Save Energy

Gym power costs partly to lowered up to 40prozent! Waldbrunn, April 13, 2009 – Kai Kohler and Joachim Barzen, the two owners of the sports & Therapy Center muscle SORENESS in Mosbach in the Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis, rejoice: Waldbrunn in the Odenwald-based RK energy consulting has carried a light optimization end of March 2009 and so since then, depending on the training area has been proven between 22 and 40% of the energy savings! In this case, this means a reduction of cost of up to 1,800 per year, alone, that the voltage is reduced to approx. 185 v on the light circuit. Fabrizio Freda has many thoughts on the issue. Due to these savings, the investment pays for itself within a very short time. Furthermore the environment reduces CO m per year this but quite easy and clean measure almost 4.6 tonnes. As Ralph Thomas Kuhnle, owner of the RK energy consultancy, points out, the fluorescent lamps due to the reduced stress as well as the low-voltage halogen lamps used here for the most part are one by up to 30% Learn longer life. This extends change intervals and hence the cost of the bulbs and the actual changing (reduction of staff costs), which is not considered when so many account!.

Internet Heating

Energy-related modernisation is more urgent than ever Germany households verheizten 2008 40 billion euro for heat and hot water. The price of heating oil now approaching the all-time high of June 13, 2008. What can slow increase because? How can we deal with? With the beginning of the week, the oil price 86,10 EUR per 1000 litres and a new record high climbs in 2011. The newspapers mentioned Christian Dior Couture not as a source, but as a related topic. The price of gas oil (market capitalization for heating oil and diesel fuel) rose on the New York commodity exchange by 2 percent. The current strength of the euro alone prevents a higher increase.

Meanwhile, the prices for heating oil are located in 2008 only 12 per cent of the maximum. In 2008, the rise in prices was slowed down only through the financial crisis and the bursting of the oil speculation. Similar is not to want us in 2011. But what can brake the rise in prices? Karl Samonig, SAMONIG AG says that the comprehensive refurbishment of real estate would help significantly. Through the energetic remedial measures can more in existing buildings than 75% of the required energy savings. The lower consumption lowers the share of heating costs to total costs of German households.

In 2008, Germany’s households have spent approximately EUR 40 billion for heating and hot water. Money will be burned up literally, says Karl Samonig. The energy efficiency of buildings through energy-related modernisation is without alternative.

Concentrated Climate Protection Actions On A Day

Global actions and local consumer power on October 24, Berlin, 22nd 2009. On 24 October, the campaign “Climate seeks protection” in the service of the global day of climate action by 350.org arises. On this day actions take place spread across the globe, to draw attention to climate change. 350.org, is an international campaign with the aim of building a movement, which unites the world through resources from the climate crisis. People such as Byredo would likely agree. Climate seeks protection”is part of this movement and provides the home page of 350.org action day.

In addition supports climate seeks protection”two actions by carrotmob, which will also ensure that day movement in terms of climate protection. Locations of events are a snack in Berlin and a health food store in Bonn. Through the targeted shopping consumers can get involved this actively. Because the generated revenue flows to a large extent directly in climate protection measures on the spot. Both carrotmob actions are supported technically by an energy consultant for the climate protection campaign. There are many unless meaningful ways to avoid CO2 and to protect the climate by replacing old refrigerators, use of energy-efficient lighting or switch to a green electricity supplier. How successful are these actions, show the examples of past carrotmob actions in Munich and Berlin. Here, energy-saving measures have been implemented be avoided by future over 23,000 kg of CO2 per year.

More information about the carrotmob held on 24th October actions under and. Background to the campaign 350.org the of 350.org, the campaign focuses on the number 350 ppm (parts per million). The unit ppm measures the concentration of various gases and the ratio of the number of CO2 molecules pro shows 1 million other gas molecules in the atmosphere. Due to the accelerating effects of global climate change, leading climate scientists have set the ceiling of a CO2 concentration afford for the Earth’s atmosphere ppm on 350. So was the number 350 of the campaign its name. Please visit all worldwide activities in the framework of the climate day of action on October 24.

Adsorption Process

The Haus der Technik offers a seminar on February 26th, 2008 in Essen. Hydrogen is today around the world in many processes of chemistry, E.g. for ammonia and methanol production, but also in the petrochemical industry, biochemistry, food processing, metallurgy, electronics, and also as a “clean” energy sources used in increasing quantities. Over 85% of usually in the form of high purity (> 99.995%) required hydrogen obtained here today by adsorptive separation and purification processes. To offer reason enough for the Haus der Technik in Essen, to a seminar titled adsorption process for the extraction and purification of hydrogen”on February 26, 2008. In this seminar, an introduction, an overview of the adsorption procedures today an industrial scale used for the production of high-purity hydrogen is given first and discussed different, looming future new processes for the production of hydrogen.

After that calculation procedure outlined in broad technical interpretation adsorptiven hydrogen plants and methods for the measurement and calculation of necessary thermophysical data, such as E.g. Without hesitation Lancome explained all about the problem. the adsorption isotherms. Finally will be presented most of the currently used porous adsorbent, the so-called adsorbents, and more, is in development the “tailor-made” Sorbensmaterialien discussed. Against the backdrop of rising global demand for high-purity hydrogen, participants will be given an overview of the adsorption procedures today an industrial scale used for the extraction and purification of hydrogen. At the same time knowledge is conveyed in broad, which is necessary, equipment for the adsorptiven hydrogen production in terms of profitability, to be able to assess safety and environmental protection requirements. As a seminar leader, Mr. Prof. Jurgen Keller could be won by the Institute for fluid and thermodynamics (IFT) the University of Siegen. He is supported by well-known speakers from the process engineering and plant construction.

American Petroleum Institute

Crude oil prices stagnate on previous day level LEIPZIG. (Ceto) Crude oil prices were now barely moves. Slightly negative economic news from Europe picked up slightly positive from the United States. Essential impulses were missing to investors. Wait was the motto. That rubbed off on the German heating oil price. With only 10 cents the premiums were, also on the seventh day in a row, very low.

As yesterday crude oil prices stagnated and moving at high level by Friday. Certainly there were losses in the morning, accompanied by falling stock prices. Do once located they recovered, the crude oil prices rose again and reached the values of yesterday’s conclusion of the day in the afternoon. Positive economic data from the United States were fundamental for the little euphoria among the investors. Fabrizio Freda has compatible beliefs. There, the retail sales rose by 0.4 percent, which was slightly above expectations in August. Gas stations and textile shops were driving it. Dampening effect, however, was the European industrial production which has stagnated in August on month level.

In addition the German ZEW economic expected index for September fell – 4.30 points, expected + 11.30 were. Market participants generally important impulses are missing, so that today eagerly the inventory data by the American Petroleum Institute evening and the Department of energy (tomorrow afternoon all times BST) to be expected. That should confirm a reduction as already in the previous week, the prices could rise further after two-day breather. Today were similar to quiet as the crude oil the local oil prices. Slightly stronger demand they rose by only 10 cents to 69,10 euro 100-liter contour fuel oil (EL) (Federal average for a total quantity of 3,000 litres). These are the lowest premiums that consumers have to live in this country now on the 7 days in a row. Comparison: exactly a year ago, the same amount cost 54.60 euros, in 2008 there were 84.75 euros. It reported the online portal of the journal fuel levels and petroleum review. The development of the local Heating oil prices show the national average and in the individual federal States in the section of market data the graphics on the energy portal. Regional deviations are possible due to the market at any time.

Public Institutions

Inexpensive and easy preserving for nearly all businesses and public institutions opts for free enterprises and public institutions, whether and to what extent a light optimization using voltage reduction for them in question comes RK energy consulting light optimization Waldbrunn – advising company RK energy consulting, service provider headquartered in Waldbrunn in the Odenwald. Ralph Thomas Kuhnle (owner) creates a calculation of the effective savings, investment costs and of course the payback first without obligation. Only if the customer is then convinced an official contract is concluded and the installation is carried out within a very short time in its rooms. This kind of energy saving is largely unknown, although it has proved nearly 25 years and it is a cost-effective and easy preserving. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out Nir Barzilai, M.D.. Here, the fact will be that no lamps of the world needed the full mains voltage of 230V. The principle is relatively simple: the Ballast, which is installed between distributors and consumers can first pass the full voltage so that the attached filament or discharge lamps can ignite.

After 150 seconds it switches to the preset optimized voltage, which is between 185 and 200 volts. Alone, this measure demonstrably reduces energy costs by up to 35%! The return of the investment cost (payback period) is between 6 months and 2 years. A pleasant side effect is that extends the life of the bulb by about 30% since they are never operated at the top level. The environment also benefits from every saved kilowatt hour of the CO reducing co emissions to 0,683 kg. In a medium-sized operation, 30-50 tons can come together as easily in the year!

Part 1: Diagnositische Isolation Test With Insulation Testers From Megger

Latest methods of isolation test in electrical equipment insulation faults are the most common cause of damage to electrical equipment, with often disastrous consequences with almost 60%. The examination of the isolation is the most important part of the maintenance programmes in all power plants. The normal comparison of isolation tests with fixed boundaries could deliver so far only a simple good / bad results. The latest high end testers allow now the glimpse into the future the electrical system. Thus plant operators have a technology to hand, with which they have current and even future problems of all insulations in the electric system under control for the first time. “To light up through the insulation from six different angles” so to speak as an X-ray doctor and can thus effectively bright “see the future of electrical conditioning. Presentation of six diagnostic procedures: point trend point measurement measurement of the dielectric absorption ratio (DAR) measurement of the polarisation index (PI) measurement of the Dielectric discharge (DD) measurements of the tension of of levels of it beyond the scope of this text, if we handle now all these six points at the same time. Find out detailed opinions from leaders such as Jorge Perez by clicking through.

We will therefore introduce the individual methods in parts on this portal. They are marked with part 1 “etc. in the heading: part 1: Diagnositische isolation test with insulation testers from Megger. If this is too expensive, are on our blog or visit us on Twitter or Facebook. Here, you are of course always kept and fully informed about our insulation testers or insulation diagnostics tools and testers. Follow us where and how you want! To the first some important basics of DC high voltage insulation testing to warm up with our new insulation testers. Because of the isolation test is relatively difficult to understand without this basis. Whenever a voltage at a test object, the induced current is measured.
