Federal Government

Trade fair IHE HolzEnergie informed in the framework of the RENEXPO 2009 the national biomass action plan of the Federal Government the bioenergy should efficiently and sustainably built and medium term remain the most important renewable energy sources. It shows what potential and reserves we have in Germany for the use of bio-energy, and how much we already have. According to estimates, a doubling of the proportion of bio energy in Germany is possible by 2020. Also the renewable energies heat Act (EEWarmeG), which came into force earlier this year and the proportional use of renewable energy to the heat needs requires new buildings, helps to increase the share of biomass heat supply. Also in the market incentive program for renewable energies in the heating area (MAP) 2008 up to 350 million stood ready, encouraging the Federal Government to up to 500 million will be increased in the years 2009 to 2012. Larry Ellison shines more light on the discussion. To use the potential of the wood energy as a main supplier of heat, are innovative technologies and companies, both in the Domestic than needed for the export. The exchange between experts and educating the public are necessary. A central platform offers the trade fair IHE HolzEnergie for Exchange and information from September 24-27, 2009 in the framework of the 10th RENEXPO 2009 in Augsburg.

It has established itself in the last 10 years as the most important industry gathering. Also in this year the IHE presents HolzEnergie wood gasification technology product segment used strong: some well-known exhibitors will be represented as well as new entrants, who will be present for many years tested equipment. Other topics include energy provision of wood, old wood treatment, heat – but also electricity generation with pellet, piece of wood and wood chip heating, fireplace, pellet and tiled stoves. In terms of biomass boilers of smaller and medium-sized power level are represented this year as usual all the market leaders. The IHE presented HolzEnergie special fireplace and pellet stove”.

As a highlight, the AKG organized Augsburger stove wholesale GmbH a large manufacturer booth. In the same Hall area, other manufacturers with their own exhibition stands present the trade visitors as well as the end user. The fair offered back high-calibre trade congresses. The German bioenergy Association (BBE) already performs the international BBE Conference for wood energy for the ninth time in a row. The Congress informed of the industry in best way with well-known speakers from politics, business and associations about the latest developments and has established itself as the most important industry gathering in Germany. In the area of wood gasification the Symposium will take place for the fifth time small and medium wood gasification, which is conducted in cooperation with the FEE funding renewable energies Association. At the same time the RENEXPO provides an overview of the entire spectrum of renewable energies and energy efficiency. More information about exhibition and Congress under.

Berlin energy consultants specializes in advising homeowners constantly rising energy prices and climate damage caused by CO2 emissions can be more and more builders and property owners are looking for more economical, climate – and environmentally friendly ways to heat your homes. Therefore pay attention more and more property owners when the renovation on a certain amount of renewable energy. But caution that without qualified energy consulting should not house renovated or rebuilt. Not seldom much money will prove issued for allegedly environmentally friendly, energy-saving heating systems such as heat pumps and solar systems, in hindsight the expensive wrong investment so the energy advisor Jorg Thomas. Therefore his newly founded company TiB engineering services, consultancy and sales Ltd.

has focused on the Group of rehabilitation willing house owners. The stated goal of the company is to advise the homeowner not only comprehensive but to propose just such solutions, the in a few years amortize. It’s not that as much as possible to save, but finding an optimum balance between costs and benefits maximum savings at lowest cost. Some homeowners believe it is sufficient to reduce heating costs, to an old oil or gas heating for a heat pump – Exchange. “But in a moderate heat-insulated House an old heating system through an air / water heat pump to replace, is waste of money and even environment” so the energy consultants and Dipl.-ing., Jorg Thomas. Because what is saved in this case to oil or gas costs, must be issued for power.

As for the generation of electricity but almost three times as much fossil energy is required, also the CO2 emissions is correspondingly high. Only a comprehensive redevelopment with detailed inventory and care by a qualified energy advisor guarantee long-lasting reduction in the heating costs and CO2 emissions. According to Jorg Thomas it is almost possible at an oil price of almost EUR 0.70 / litre, the cost to pay for a reasonable remediation from the saved heating costs alone. The renovation as well as the energy advice be encouraged. So a subsidy may apply for the prior on-site energy advice by 50% of the consulting fee, up to a maximum of 300 EUR, the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA). For remediation exist several programs with the Kreditanstalt fur Wiederaufbau.
