[Dutch] Groene stroom wordt blauw. De elektriciteit die windmolens en zonnepanelen opwekken, gaat volgens een toenemend aantal onderzoekers later deze eeuw in de vorm van waterstof door stad en land. Waterstof wordt de ‘universele energiedrager’, die alle delen van de samenleving van stroom gaat voorzien: van industrie tot vervoer, van huishoudens tot mobiele telefoons. Dat moet gaan gebeuren in zogeheten brandstofcellen, apparaten waarin waterstof met zuurstof reageert tot elektriciteit, warmte en water. Dat is alles. Brandstofcellen heten dan ook de schoonste energietechniek die er bestaat.

European Union, 6th Framework Programme Views: 9922
Rating: 1   [rate this resource] [report errors]

Behind the 6th Framework Programme is a different concept that potential participants need to fully understand if they are to be successful. In the past the European Union has had 15 individual national research programmes all having a similar set of priorities, and the Framework Programmes were in effect a 16th programme. In this situation we suffer duplication of effort and dissipation of resources and we can never talk about ‘European’ research as a single entity, in the same way that we would talk about American research or Japanese research. In consequence the EU has agreed at the highest political level to a new concept called the ‘European Research Area’ (ERA). Just like the opening of trade markets has led to the Single Market, so the opening up of research into a single common area will benefit research generally. But realising this ‘European Research Area’ is a challenge for the EU, its Member States, and the research community. In respect of the EU, its main instrument of research is the Framework Programmes. Thus FP6 will channel its budget into actions and projects designed to build the ERA in partnership with Europe’s best researchers.

Thecogas PlanET Biogastechniek [Dutch] Views: 9931

Thecogas PlanET biogastechniek BV is al jaren thuis in alles wat van doen heeft met het realiseren van succesvolle biogasinstallaties in Nederland, Duitsland en in Oost-Europa. Thecogas, de voorloper van Thecogas PlanET, was al lange tijd actief bezig met biogas, voordat in 2004 werd besloten een nieuwe onderneming op te zetten met het duitse PlanET biogastechnik GmbH uit Vreden. Een perfecte combinatie. Als eerste project werd een voor Nederland unieke eerste grootschalige biogasinstallatie in Nederland gerealiseerd in Eibergen (vergisting van 36.000 ton mest per jaar). Nu wordt druk gewerkt aan een verdere uitbreiding van het aantal gerealiseerde installaties in Nederland. De bouw van installaties in Makkinga en Lellens zijn intussen afgerond. Op dit moment (dec 2005) wordt druk gebouwd in IJsselsteyn en Hooghalen. Thecogas PlanET bouwt biogasinstallaties volledig conform (Duitse) wet- en regelgeving en is bovendien op de hoogte van de subsidiemogelijkheden. Projecten worden altijd gerealiseerd in nauwe samenwerking met leveranciers van componenten (denkt u bijvoorbeeld aan de warmtekrachtkoppeling (WKK), de silo's en de roerwerken). Thecogas PlanET benut daarbij haar schat aan technische kennis over vergisting om alle componenten optimaal te integreren tot een perfect functionerende biogasinstallatie. Daarbij wordt intensief samengewerkt met erkende adviesbureaus op het gebied van projectontwikkeling en op het gebied van vergunningverlening, haalbaarheidsstudies en subsidiëring.

UNFCCC Views: 9907

The 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is one of a series of recent agreements through which countries around the world are banding together to meet this challenge. Other treaties deal with such matters as pollution of the oceans, expanding deserts, damage to the ozone layer, and the rapid extinction of plant and animal species. The Climate Change Convention focuses on something particularly disturbing: we are changing the way energy from the sun interacts with and escapes from our planet's atmosphere. By doing that, we risk altering the global climate. Among the expected consequences are an increase in the average temperature of the earth's surface and shifts in world-wide weather patterns. Other -- unforeseen -- effects cannot be ruled out.
