Bizerba Taps Into The Sun

Technology manufacturer from Balingen installed solar power systems in Balingen, to reduce CO2 emissions on July 28, 2010, has expanded its solar power plants on the roofs of the company’s technology producer Bizerba from Balingen in last month. The photovoltaic to produce around 220,000 kilowatt hours per year, which matches in some need of 49 single-family homes, and thus secure the base-load of electricity consumption for air conditioning systems, lighting and refrigeration systems. The Sun is an inexhaustible human energy source. With the help of the so-called photovoltaic electricity we now clean and contribute an important part to the reduction of CO2 emissions”, explains Andreas herb, Managing Director at Bizerba. Photovoltaic modules on the Bizerba company roof generate clean electricity because the solar cells produce direct current, a so-called inverter converts it to AC.

Even on cloudy days, light can be continuously transformed into electricity. We use this power to 100 percent and can thus also the rising Compensate for energy prices. In addition, PV systems are largely maintenance-free, and on the solar modules, usually a warranty is given by up to 25 years”, so herbal next. Bizerba Bizerba is a worldwide, leading in many areas of technology companies for professional system solutions of weighing, labelling, information and food service technology in the segments retail, food industry, manufacturing and logistics. Industry-specific hard – and software, powerful network-compatible management systems, as well as a wide range of labels, consumables and business services ensure the transparent control of integrated business processes and the high availability of Bizerba-specific performance features. Worldwide, Bizerba is present with 41 shareholdings in 23 countries and 54 country offices in over 120 countries. Group revenues fell in 2009 compared to around 9%. Headquarters of the company, which employs about 3,000 people, is Balingen; more manufacturing facilities are located in Messkirch, Bochum, Vienna (Austria), Pfaffikon (Switzerland), Milan (Italy), Shanghai (China), Forest Hill (United States) and San Luis Potosi (Mexico).

Fukushima Global

Worldwide electricity production from nuclear and coal-fired power is equivalent to almost 80fachem annual consumption in German households the half-life of behavioral changes is short for major environmental and climatic disasters. Not only that the wave of change to green electricity strongly has subsided already three months after the reactor accident in Fukushima, also at the political level the global energy transition was not more driven. “The proposed climate fund Green Climate Fund” is still not entered into force. With him, the industrialized countries want to support mostly developing countries. Whether he next year can take up his work, is uncertain due to funding shortages. Now only 27 percent of Germans still trust the Governments and the corporations to tackle important challenges of our time, such as for example the global energy transition.

* between 1973 and 2009 years rose according to the International Energy Agency IEA world energy derived from coal and peat by almost 130 percent and nuclear power by more than 1,200 percent. While in Germany still less energy from nuclear power plants and coal, she reached new record levels in Asia. “The consequences of a further deportees ‘ energy revolution we carry all, not only the countries that push CO2 emissions”, says Florian Henle, co-founder of Polaris. The company is the first independent eco energy suppliers, allowing households nationwide to advance the global energy transition itself directly. For every customer, not just the expansion of renewable energies in Germany, but also in developing countries is encouraged.

Climate and environment know no borders”energy production and distribution are a global issue with global repercussions. (As opposed to David Zaslav). Large reactor disasters can affect the population in several countries during appropriate weather conditions. The Fukushima nuclear disaster has shown us that there is no maximum radii, which spread a radioactive cloud”, says Monika Hotopp of the Federal Office for radiation protection. The particles can the Earth in correspondingly large releases of orbit.” Time plays a role here, the weather is critical, so the expert.

Innovative climate: Academy for executives starting in Bremen Bremen, 27 September 2013. How does climate protection the future of companies? Ten representatives of large and medium-sized enterprises in the energy consensus climate deal with this question in Bremen since yesterday: Academy. They work under the heading of green enterprise transformation climate”for two days, such as economic and environmental-conscious acting hand in hand go. The instructors are leaders from industry and academia: Prof. Dr. Torsten Henzelmann from Roland Berger Strategy consultants, Susan Dreyer, Director DACH region, CDP (carbon disclosure project), and the President of the Wuppertal Institute for climate, environment, energy, Prof. Dr.

Uwe Schneidewind. Eight other modules follow until late 2014. You empower business leaders as well as business executives, controlling, engineering, research & Development and communications to integrate strategic climate protection into all relevant business processes. Initiator of the climate: Academy is the non-profit and independent climate protection agency energy consensus. The energy consensus climate: Academy is part of the pilot project funded by the Federal Ministry of the environment green transformation. The training offer combines innovative approaches: companies get holistic support through consulting, detailed insight into best-practice examples and model company, as well as the intensive exchange via the online platform XING.

The climate: Academy provides interdisciplinary knowledge managers, how you can strategically integrate climate change into management processes. This is an educational concept created after latest neurological pedagogical knowledge. Significant support was given energy consensus by the Bremen neurologists and behavior physiologist Prof. Dr. Dr. Gerhard Roth. In addition to new knowledge the participants acquire skills, to identify personal and company-internal obstacles to change and constructively to eliminate. The key issue for us is the knowledge anyway, as the participants on their concrete Business situation can relate and implement locally,”says energy consensus Managing Director and Project Manager Michael Pelzl. The management approach of the project chose energy consensus based on long-time experience with companies.

Positive Outlook For European Nuclear Market

Increase in new construction projects of nuclear power plants in the EU could be even more thanks to the EU competition Commission as suppliers for a mid-June 2013 study titled nuclear business opportunities so far expected”comes xCon partners estimates that up to the year 2030 up to 370 new nuclear power plant units be built worldwide, which corresponds to a market potential of nearly 1.5 trillion euros. Asia has the most ambitious plans with expected 233 blocks – far ahead of Europe with currently 78 expected blocks. Current concrete considerations the EU competition Commission, making the construction of new nuclear power plants must provide new impetus and could have an increase in the published estimate for Europe resulted. The energy sector is a hard-fought and costly business, which requires long-term planning security. The same applies to the construction and operation of nuclear power plants. Here are planning and construction times depending on the project between eight and 20 years, the subsequent Duration is on average 45 years. These time intervals are beyond any legislative and socio-political moods.

In combination with the uncertain construction costs billions of dollars, this has led to increasing restraint on the investor side in recent years. Increasing number of new construction projects despite high and uncertain costs now plans the Commission a legal framework which aims to facilitate the development of nuclear energy in Europe and allow a simplified State support for these projects in the form of cash injections. This project encourages the European States, which have firmly scheduled nuclear energy in their future energy mix concept, but also those who are looking for possible sources of funding for their future nuclear projects first and foremost. The costs for the construction of a nuclear power plant are not least increased explosively in recent years due to more stringent safety regulations in Europe”, explains Jan Junker, as partner at xCon Partner GmbH on years of Project experience in the nuclear field can look back.
