Bloomberg goes less green

Post-election New York is going to be significantly less energy-efficient than pre-election Mayor Bloomberg promised it was going to be.

In the face of opposition from real estate interests, Bloomberg has decided that the owners of buildings his plan identifies as using half the city's energy will no longer be required to make them energy efficient.

Viessmann: Replacing More Heating Systems Necessary to Reach Climate Targets

Viessmann Group, Allendorf/Germany, one of the leading international manufacturers of heating systems, says that 13.6 million old heating systems need to be replace by 2020 if Germany wants to reach its climate protection targets.

Potential for Solar Thermal in Europe

The European Union and its Member States have committed themselves to achieving a 20% share of renewable energy in Europe's final energy consumption by 2020. As only three renewable sources (biomass, geothermal and solar) generate heat, it is crucial to clarify how these different sectors can contribute to the renewable energy target. A new study being released this autumn – Study of the Potential of Solar Thermal in Europe, which has come from two Austrian bodies (AEE – Institute for Sustainable Technologies and Vienna University of Technology) examines the growth that can come from solar.
