UNFCCC Emissions

Posted by on

The Government also intensively pursued”a concept for a low-carbon and sustainable country. In the framework of this concept 52 rural communities, three cities (Taipei, Taichung and Tainan) and district (Yilan) as model communities selected in terms of low-carbon and sustainable environment aiming, to encourage the people of Taiwan, to actively participate in the development of such a home. Also promotes the Government Akkuwechselsysteme for electric bikes (E-bikes), geographic information systems (GIS) for cycle path networks and hybrid cars. It is also planning to replace all traditional buses in urban areas, and to build a low-carbon transport infrastructure over the next decade by Electrobuses. Given the major challenges posed by climate change have Taiwan’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions produced concrete results in recent years. From 2008 to 2012, the annual energy consumption by an average 0.1%, a significant improvement over the period fell 2004 2007, where he had risen to an average of 3.3%. Moreover, CO2 emissions generated by fuel combustion fell for the first time in 2008 and between 2008 and 2012 these emissions by an average of 0.6% per year declined, also an improvement over the period 2004 2007, where emissions annually rose by an average of 2.7%.

A closer look at 2012, we find that Taiwan’s economic growth by 1.32% enjoyed, while at the same time CO2 emissions to 1.90% declined. This shows that an inverse relationship between economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions already exists. The Government of the Republic of China has actively sought international support, to his room in the international community expand. She brought a pragmatic and constructive dialog with China in motion and thus achieved significant results. In 2009 the Government of the Republic of China was invited for the first time by Member States of the United Nations, officially the World Health Assembly (WHA) as an observer to participate in, and since then we have participated each year. Moreover, Taiwan was invited in September 2013 to the 38th session of the Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as a guest of the President of the Council. Our participation in these two bodies is of great symbolic importance and for us very encouraging. We hope that these precedents take into account the international community and it will allow Taiwan to participate fully in the UNFCCC. In this way, it is possible to receive support from the international community and to make itself a meaningful contribution.

Consumer advocates warn manufacturers and dealers often exaggerated in advertisements, is well known. Understated details become clear on second glance, however, probably often. In some cases, it was even so much understated that the consumer panels were, however. The consumer portal preisvergleich.de informs about the illegal advertising methods. In the current cases, the consumer centres and the Federal Association criticize some manufacturer of electrical appliances, as well as multiple dealer. They had advertised that certain devices consume very little power. Often, it was specified that the devices consume less power than comparable products. Thereby, but the exact reference values remain unclear.

For example, an advertisement of the manufacturer Acer, who claimed that his notebook consumes up to 40 percent less power than other notebooks, according to consumer watchdogs was inadmissible. Frequently Rahul Singhvi has said that publicly. In cases like this is not visible to the consumer, specifically uses how much power the device or how much electricity would be saved. Similarly, some dealer had campaigned. So, washing machines at Edeka, the furniture store Hoffner, or the electric department store ProMarkt should consume less energy than the energy efficiency class of A. The consumer centres also as inadmissible saw this information, because the energy efficiency class A is already the most efficient level. The warnings of the consumer Alliance for climate”had success. Dunned down retailers and manufacturers must not repeat in the future as advertising.

ESWE supply supports Naturefund forest fund of Naturefund forest fund is supported by various companies. The ESWE Versorgungs AG won a 10 partner from the forest fund. The ESWE supply AG is for over 75 years the energy company in Wiesbaden. In the course of climate change the ESWE offers certified natural electricity from hydropower and emphasizes power purchasing renewable energy and low CO2 emissions. In addition, has promoted several photovoltaic installations in Wiesbaden building and planning an environmentally friendly biomass cogeneration.

With the support of Naturefund forest fund companies in environmental protection goes a step further. Ralf Schodlok, CEO of the ESWE Versorgungs AG, said: “working with nature Fund stands for successful forest protection and reforestation projects. Just the newly initiated forest fund, the Wiesbaden-based conservation organization, is a promising concept, we supply would assist by ESWE. Only through the active protection of forests, we can in the long term to realize a better CO2 balance for our Earth.” The Naturefund forest fund will finance the construction of small, local, and often very effective protection and reforestation projects and long-term support. First reforestation projects already implemented in Honduras, Kenya and Madagascar. More in Bolivia, Nicaragua, Malaysia and Uganda are in preparation. Naturefund always closely cooperates with local organizations, which are responsible for the success of the project locally. The Wiesbaden conservation organization accompanied, monitors and supports the local partners in the implementation of the protection project.

In addition to the concrete afforestation of Naturefund forest fund wants to build also a worldwide network of companies, sponsors and NGOs that regularly interact on the subject of environmental and climate protection, think together and make new. Katja Wiese, Managing Director of Naturefund says, “we are constantly amazed at the forest fund, which creates dynamic and also creativity, if we have different heads from quite different” Areas bring together and ask for solutions to a very specific topic: “how we can get together the diversity of this earth? How can we implement in concrete terms?” With a quiet but firm voice, adding: “I believe that such global, heterogeneous and highly creative networks, that have the aim to implement concrete projects in the here- and -now, can make an important contribution to meet the challenges of this time.” Learn more about the forest fund at: forest fund photo material to the press release you will find under: press news contact: Katja Wiese, Naturefund e.

Control of consumption) is smart metering both by the measurement operators (MSB) / distributers (MDL), as required by the network operator, and therefore an integral part of the smart grid. So, a verBRAUCher of time-dependent rates in the current market can participate and reduce its energy costs E.g.

by load shift. Our solution includes all the components of the meter to the meter remote reading application. The data for billing purposes (load profiles, billing data) are released from the ACOS 750 MG in the local network station and transferred to a remote meter readings in the SML format. Mains operation MSB/MDL can act and thus independently of each other in accordance with the required security mechanisms. This applies also in relation to the AngeschlosSenen of the meter via M-bus counter of Division gas, water and district heating, because each meter can communicate with their own operators or MSB/MDL. With our ACOS X 4 (integration platform) and ACOS NMS systems we can of the fittest Integration of your own systems (billing, commercial systems) with systems of other MSB/MDL or also network operators take into account.

Administrative expenses (installation, change behavior, fault management) is after a nationwide roll-out to settle at low cost with automated business processes and computerised systems. To do this, ACOS NMS with asset management, fault management, and GIS is the ideal platform for the handling of bulk data. Generation management leverage renewable energy instead of conventionally produced is growing shares of EEG in the foreground. To minimize the use of more expensive balancing energy and outages or feeding Emin changes of EEG equipment by power management despite the high volatility of the EEG power feeds, require accurate regional forecasts of Sonneneinstrahlung and wind strength. It also can be a timely documentation with regional densification of the installed EEG power plant services in asset management by ACOS NMS. So can variations in the lower Power levels are adjusted. In addition to the monitoring and control of the EEG systems retrieving minute reserves (E.g. emergency power generators, cogeneration,…) include the production management pooling and linkage with market-driven systems for the management of the loss situation. The system IDS HIGH lead and the network management suite ACOS NMS, connected with the integration platform of ACOS X 4, can in this environment essential accents.

Consumers are still wary the nationwide introduction of bio fuel E10 is currently under discussion. While representatives from politics and economy are divided is how E10 can contribute to climatic and environmental objectives of the EU, due to the lingering issues and debates to E10 are clearly rattled. This trend should be countered with the fuel Summit in Berlin. In addition to the Federal Ministers of economy (Rainer Bruderle), consumer protection (Ilse Aigner) and transport (Peter Ramsauer), representatives of the petroleum industry and trade to the crisis meeting were invited to communicate about new initiatives to establish new biofuel. Current information from the fuel Summit: acceptance by information that the introduction of E10 in the chaos ended, many observers attributed to inadequate consumer information. On the Summit petrol was now agreed that the brochure issued by the DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH E10 and its impact for various Types of vehicles should be off at all gas stations for inspection. The Federal Government also wants to promote greater E10 and further adhering to the introduction of the new organic sprits. The automotive industry pledged to consider the establishment of an E10 Internet portal.

Here, for example, direct references to the sides of the vehicle manufacturers are possible. Carrier understands that this is vital information. That their statements to the E10 compatibility should be legally binding, automotive industry German not at all involved on Wohlwollen.Automobilhersteller and in the German Association of nudged organized companies the E10 compatibility list should also provide all key partners (E.g. dealers and mechanics) available. Organizations such as the ADAC will help consumers with special hotlines to the topic of E10. However, agriculture, which in turn will communicate the special virtues of E10, is some climate – and environmental groups currently in the criticism. Even if according to the Federal Association of free gas stations, sales of E10 increases slowly, yet many questions remain unanswered.
