Although the price of oil, the gas price with approximately half a year delay followed has doubled since March 2009 to about 80 dollars. However, the domestic gas customers benefit from the months ongoing weakness of the dollar. For more information see Celina Dubin. The domestic oil prices as a reference product of private natural gas prices have grown conditionally only slightly due to the strong euro”, Bohg. The adjustment pressure in gas prices makes much less than assumed.” Given the current low level of the gas price consumers should use the possibilities of gas price comparison right now. In many regions of several hundred euros can be by changing the gas provider in the year save and secure the now reasonable prices with price guarantees long term”, advises Bohg. Difficult forecast: more price development 2010 completely open as the gas prices in the course of the coming year to develop is still completely open at present.

On the one hand is likely be to be expected according to the logic of the market the oil binding with a nationwide rise in gas prices from April 2010. The major gas importers by an oversupply of gas in Europe are under enormous pressure on the other side. Overlooking the low purchase prices for gas on the spot market and pending proceedings of the Federal Court of Justice to the binding of the gas price to the price of oil, many industry experts anticipate an early break of the German gas market. So industry giants penetrate like E.ON Ruhrgas for weeks at the largest natural gas supplier Gazprom on a flexibility of long-term supply contracts. Should the oil binding in Germany is actually falling, gas prices for the 20 million German households with gas supply could fall further. Through consumer portals as toptarif.de (www.toptarif.de/ gas) or free service hotline 0800-10 to 30-499 consumers quickly and easily inform themselves about alternatives in their region and free to switch to a cheaper gas provider. Notes: * invoice in the case of E.ON Bayern (family 32,000 kWh)… Date of adoption: 45 per cent of the specified year consumption incurred in the period from January to March.

According to the assumption, 14,400 kWh gas are consumed in the first quarter. Removal of the winter discount”1.05 cent per kWh thus means a cost increase of approximately 151 euros. toptarif.de 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 toptarif.de 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.

Christmas 2007:

One year CO2-neutral car drive more than half of all drivers in Germany want to make a contribution to saving the climate and would pay something for it. This has shown the study of a consultancy. Now Christmas is a good opportunity to do so. Because a wasted air Federal plaque neutralizing the CO2 emissions of a car driver for a year. The traffic in one of the main causes for climate change. Why is it better the car to leave and to develop environmentally friendly techniques. If that is not possible, motorists should try to make up for the damage”, says Peter Fransemeier Managing Director of air federal, a company that it has made to the task to reduce the CO2 emissions of individual or to compensate.

With the acquisition of the Federal plaque of climate projects, which contribute to a better climate of the world, for example the construction of wind turbines and afforestation. The latest Eurobarometer has now shown that the car for the majority of EU citizens is essential, a representative opinion poll given by the EU Commission in the 25 Member States of the European Union. Then, 22 percent of those surveyed are prepared under any circumstances to abandon your car more often. At least 28 percent would leave it more often and for almost half of the 26,000 people the car is transportation. The price for the badge varies according to man-made CO2 emissions and is kilometers, which corresponds to about 1.7 tons of CO2 and 99.80 euros driven between 24,95 euro 10,000 40,000 kilometers and 6.8 tonnes of CO2.

Bright Spot: Nanotechnology Improves The Energy Efficiency Of Solar Modules

Interesting for those who invest in the future of solar technology? Freystadt/Oberpfalz – three years research has invested J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, now, the new technology is ready for the market. Recently presented J.v.G. a special high-performance module that is extremely heat-resistant. The desert module technology”achieved a performance increase of 8 to 10 Watts per standard module power temperature the so-called high process.

The module is already manufactured in series, launch in December 2011. But what the developers of the innovator of the public now imagine, is a quantum leap: through new HPTP nanotechnology increases performance on about 20%. How it works, explains Hans Thoma, Managing Director of J.v.G Thoma: so far, not all types of radiation could enter solar modules. Thanks to its special properties, the nano coating applied by us bundles all incident radiation. So we capture the entire spectrum and exploit it for energy production.” The Whole is realized on an area of 5 x 3 cm. The prototype on a 6-inch basis is completed until the end of March.

Initial discussions are already running with investors, but the company is open to other interested parties. We are looking intensively for partners who want to shape the future with us”, explains Hans Thoma. J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, J.v.G. Thoma GmbH can look back on more than 20 years of experience. As an industry leader in the construction of turnkey solar plants the company international is active and serves customers throughout Europe, America and Asia. The range of services includes consultancy in the field of solar production, the realization of solar factories as well as the purchase and sale of solar components. Moreover, operates J.v.G. as a consultant for major customers in Europe and Japan.
