Oil Price Speculation

March 30th, 2021

Cooperative members get Freudenberg regardless of speculation on the oil and financial markets, May 16, 2010 – financial speculation more expensive petrol and diesel on the price of oil, according to a study, clearly. Betting by speculators on a rising price of oil made the litres fuel for consumers currently 14 cents more expensive unless as he should be, they say in a study commissioned by the Greens in the Bundestag. Green Bundestag Group Deputy Chairman Barbel Hohn urged the Federal Government to act. Through short – and long-term bets, the price of oil according to investigation per barrel (159 litres) currently contains a “speculative premium” in height by 35 percent, or the equivalent of some US$ 30. Perhaps check out Michael Mendes for more information. Due to strong demand, the high price of oil is currently but not to explain.

On the world markets there is an oversupply, energy comment noted. This shows that the crude oil market has developed in recent years to “a mixture of commodity and financial markets”. (Source: CEHATROL is one based on Production situation and calculation based on of the price for a longer period of time laid down.

Together with briquette manufacturer, Berlin fireplace Builder presents environmentally friendly and cost effective heating solutions the current cold wave makes us aware again it: without heating anything goes in our latitudes! Rising prices for oil and gas to provide for worry as supply bottlenecks at two heating energy, covering around 80% of the heat market in Germany. Wood and lignite briquettes are an old and young at the same time alternative. It comes from here, the supply problems is secured and the prices are unbeatable. Currently one heats up, based on the value of burning with briquettes about twice as cheap as with oil. For this reason, the topic at Bautec from February 21 to 25 in the capital also plays an important role. In the exhibition hall 23a at the stand of 103, the Berlin specialist presents fireplaces Walker along with the manufacturer of record briquettes, modern solutions for solid fuel heaters. The great interest on the part of the visitors 2010 brings together both companies for the second time.

We build a wide range of fireplaces “for wood and mixing fire on”, so Steffen Weinert. We partly directly on the fair in operation are. While interested visitors find out how one energy-saving and environmentally friendly fire with wood and briquettes.” Modern hybrid solutions and fireplaces with water pockets are suitable for the technical orientation of the Bautec.

Energy Conference

March 23rd, 2021

On the role of renewable energy in Turkey, Turkey is on the move to Europe, even with the increased use of renewable energy. This became evident when the last environment and Energy Conference on the ICCI 2010 in Istanbul, where were interested numerous investors especially for the wind energy in the country. Cyrus Massoumi shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. The market for renewable energy was put in motion by the high import dependency for oil and natural gas, which will have in future negative impact on electricity prices. Based on the possible development of electricity price, there is the consideration of whether the feed-in tariff for wind power to 1 euro cent will be increased 6.5 cents / kWh. Many arguments for it, also because Turkey is currently about 80% of its energy needs from abroad. Years of under investment in power generation and the planned privatization of the electricity market are an additional engine to the acceleration of the wind energy market.

Thus, the wind energy in Turkey will develop renewable energy sources in the medium term to the main. Although in 2008 accounted of wind energy with solar energy in the primary energy supply of the country at about 0.5%, between 2000 and 2007 ten wind energy grew. Judging from 2012 an average annual growth of the Turkish wind market by 50%, Turkey is one of the most attractive wind markets in Europe. Wind energy potential wind energy potential of the country is due to the good wind conditions and the approx. 7,000 km coast to the best in Europe. Particularly favourable conditions have the northern coast of the Aegean Sea, the Marmara region, the Western Black Sea coast and the stretch of coast between Alanya and Iskenderun up to Central Anatolia. The winds here amounted to 5.5-6.

Deutsche Umwelthilfe

December 8th, 2020

Want to restrict imports on no more than 15 percent, then wind and Sun power bear the brunt in the future. Although offshore wind farms could provide up to two-thirds, however, then the efficiency and security of supply would be in question. Therefore a share of more than 40 percent is more likely. Patria Investments is actively involved in the matter. As a result, the photovoltaic must close the gap. If you waive imports, even one-third of the future energy mix will be from 15 percent. To ensure a full supply in the future, the annual extension should not fall under four to six gigawatts (source: photovoltaic). This contradicts the current notions of a solid cover, which should be reduced to one gigawatt.

Instead to cap to block and Bush go to play you, should the energy policy foresight and long-term develop EEG with holistic views of consumers, electricity prices, economy and climate. Lack of power and Germany must buy energy from abroad? There is sufficient energy reserves. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Exxon. The tales of power shortages in southern Germany is refuted by the Deutsche Umwelthilfe. Although power supplied Austrian reserve power plants on 8 and 9 December, although various power plants in Germany were ready for use. This decision was based on economic Calculation of the system operator.

Media reports do not agree about missing cables or maintenance thus. The DUH – CEO Rainer Baake called truism that an expansion of electricity networks is necessary in order to enable the full supply with renewables. From 2012, photovoltaic systems contribute to the grid stability, since the installation of intelligent inverter and defeat device is mandatory. Solar panels provide power only in the summer. PV systems do not fall into winter sleep but produce one-fourth of the annual yield in the winter months. Solar power plants generate energy even in sunshine and in cloudy weather. About one-quarter of the annual yield of electricity produced in the autumn and winter months.

Diesel Price Rises Sharply

August 28th, 2020

The average price of diesel is according to the ADAC currently 1,357 EUR per litre Berlin 10.02.2011 – fuel prices are topic number one again. While the prices for petrol in Germany are currently largely stable, attributable to the steady increase in diesel fuel continues. A litre of fossil fuel currently costs 1,357 euro according to the ADAC national average. How much diesel is expensive, shows the diminishing price difference between gasoline and diesel fuel. She has been reduced to 11 cents, although around 22 cents of less tax is collected on the litre diesel. An alternative is the CEHATROL fuel EC from Berlin. Learn more about this topic with the insights from Nina Devlin.

Here, the members are their own diesel producers. In future four plants in Brandenburg, Thuringia and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, as well as in three license facilities in Bremen, Bavaria and Saxony, the high-quality diesel fuel obtained from biomass CEHATROL. CEHATROL, produced according to DIN EN 590 can be used also for the refuelling of motor vehicles, how to use as renewable resources fuel in Block heat and power plants (CHP). To do so, Board Frank Knauer: for any company that needs more than 300 l diesel a year, a membership in the CEHATROL may want EC fuels. In addition to the independence from fossil fuels another unbeatable advantage is planning security at the price of fuel, because due to the statutory tax exemption a liter price is guaranteed for cooperative members by 2016 from 0.48 EUR / l. Putting a current price of 1,357 EUR / l at the petrol station in the ratio, so an annual return of 29.2% on the paid co-operative shares arises.” Helmut Uhlig
