Certificates of Energy Qualification and Certification

What is the energy certificate?

It 'a document that describes the energy of a building, a house or an apartment. It 'an instrument of control to improve the energy performance of buildings during the design and realization and an information tool by the buyer at the time of' purchase or rental of 'property. More precisely be called Energy Certificate (ACE) in order not to confuse it with the 'Qualification Certificate for Energy (AQE)

Guide to reading energy bills

To date there is still too much difficulty in the free market (and also in the market enhanced protection) to understand and analyze the cheapest electricity bill. To help consumers, simplicity should be a must but it is not.

Despite this, more than 3.7 million households (an increase of almost 70% over the previous period) and one out of three chose a manager of the new market. The confusion about charges, fees, costs of energy and dispatch shows no sign of decrease due to substantial difficulties in representation of the "numbers": the items in the bill are different from vendor to vendor with the result that it becomes almost impossible to compare two energy accounts. Customers should be able to verify the fact subscribed economic conditions and check the convenience of its bid, by comparison with those of other suppliers.

Solar energy: solar thermal and photovoltaic

The environmental crisis is now at alert level, to seriously threaten the very survival of the planet. Italy has underestimated the importance of an energy-efficient and sustainable, economically and structurally.

One of the themes favored by advocates of environmental policy is that of the so-called "renewable energy", considered viable alternatives in view of decoupling the dependence on fossil fuels: oil, gas and coal.

This, state of the art, it is true only to a small extent, but the contribution that these forms of energy production can provide is important and deserves attention and study.

Reduce electricity costs: some tips

The electricity bill is one of the crosses of citizens, one of those things that constantly grow without mercy, reducing even more the financial resources of the users. For this reason it is very important to do more and more attention to how you manage the power consumption in our house.

At home we have several electrical appliances which, though apparently turned off, continue to draw power, even if in small quantities, are those that once they leave off on that little red dot (now very often blue). The bullet in question is nothing more than an LED, which remains powered for as long as the device that is installed remains off or more correctly in stand-by mode. The function of stand-by in electronic devices, can not completely disconnect the power supply and allow the user to simply turn them on again using the remote control, instead of going to press the power button. The devices that are leveraging the state of stand-by are many, TV, DVD player and / or divx, satellite decoder and / or digital terrestrial TV, VCR, game consoles, home theater system and not everyone has the most classic button power off, so the only way to stop the consumption is pull the plug.

New type photovoltaic film solar panels: cost-benefit analysis

The prices of photovoltaic panels in the last 10 years have decreased due to the exponential increase in demand did reduce the cost of production on a large scale. This growth, however, a bit contrived because of the incentives, especially in our country, generous and in some cases distortion of market logic.

With the introduction of new incentive mechanisms for renewables the first question that arises is whether the industry will see a drop in demand for 2011. According to the latest data, the installed capacity in industrial plants will be sufficient and will exceed the current demand: The estimated by Credit Suisse secure the industrial demand for solar cells in 2011 to around 14,000 MW (peak), compared with a production capacity of 25,000 MW ( peak)

Concentrated Solar Power: current situation, future developments, potential

Renewable sources or partially this? The CSP has never ceased to animate the debate, at least since the Nobel Prize for Physics Carlo Rubbia - great supporter - in 2005 he decided to leave the presidency Enea, disagree with those who were not willing to fund this technology that , to work at night or in the absence of the sun, requires the support of energy from traditional sources.

Again in July 2009, in fact, the Italian Senate approve 'a motion rather critical of the CSP, which is considered a source not completely environmentally friendly and "inefficient", in some respects - especially in comparison with nuclear technology, which pushes towards the Government.

Why the Italian electricity is the most expensive in Europe?

The system charges penalize the final retail price of electricity, which in Italy is higher than 25 percent compared to other major European countries. The major charges applied in the bill to promote clean energy impact for almost half (10% of 25%) on the total price.

The differences between the various States are reflected in the first instance on the prices of the wholesale electricity market which also show a significant difference between Italy and the rest of Europe. The price in our country is equal to about 66 € / MWh, a slight decrease, while in other countries (France, Germany, Spain, Austria, the United Kingdom) is between 45 and 50 € / MWh.

Renewable energy: report of quota production from biomass

The GSE (Energy Services Manager) has published the book "Biomass - Statistical Report 2009," in which they are pitted the features and achievements of the biomass plants at the end of 2009. In Italy, in late 2009, there were 419 biomass plants with 2,019 MW of installed capacity and production, which reached 7.631GWh. In the Italian electricity system biomass contribute to 2.6% of the total production of electricity and account for 11, 1% of renewable energy production nationwide.

How and how much the EU is committed to reduce emissions by 2050

'It is now time to move to a competitive low carbon economy 'has warned the European Commissioner for Climate Action, Connie Hedegaard, on March 9. There is no 'more' time and to do so with good and fast results, the European Commission has presented a roadmap. A table is based on a global economic model that suggests steps you can take to achieve internal reductions of 80% by 2050.
