Solar Technology

With a photovoltaic system, you can use environmentally friendly and free electricity and earn money at the same time quite passing yet. Unlike solar panels, photovoltaic systems convert solar energy directly into electricity. Through an inverter, the resulting DC current is converted into alternating current and can then be fed into the public electricity grid. According to the German renewable energy law promoting solar power is about 43 cents per kilowatt hour since 2009 for average rooftop installations. The photovoltaic system on the roof becomes a profitable small power plant.

Solar modules, the heart of the system, consist of various solar cells. The system installed on the roof can be extended repeatedly without much effort. For the optimal exploitation of free solar energy, the photovoltaic system should be aligned southwards and as are not affected by shading. The benefits of the system is completed now by its look. There are many possibilities for a harmonious integration Investment in the overall image of the building offered, like for example a roof-integrated solution the the system on the roof is hardly noticeable. The costs of a photovoltaic system can quickly pay for themselves and the energy in the long term costs an unprecedented structured overview in connection with a State aid by the KfW bank, the portal offers housework such as renovators for comprehensive, understandable information to all questions regarding roof planning expansion and rehabilitation. It is addressed not only the head: galleries with several dozen photos and a 3D Planner allow to design the future roof even after the optical convenience.

Financial Technology

The sales could be simple banks and insurance companies on the test bench if it just wasn’t the competition especially in difficult situations and times of crisis shows how important it is to adhere to its own strategic profile. It is essential that the Institute consistently differentiate themselves, because otherwise Germany would come out with only a few banks and insurance companies. See more detailed opinions by reading what AOL offers on the topic.. One can take various strategies to stand out from the national and increasingly international competition. At the beginning of any consideration, the question must be however, making different company compared to the competition, in the perception of the customers. Differentiation of the product range, the price or the regional presence are possible.

A danger here, however, has the fact that most of the products are easily copyable; Therefore, a combination of several components of strategy is required. Approaches, which are promising banks and insurance companies by the customers as a unique\”are perceived. For example, an institution could be considered particularly fast and uncomplicated, as heavily on the customer to be aligned drivers of innovation and cutting-edge companies on the market act or held have a reputation. Currently new projects related to the term customer centering initiate a number of banks\”with a wide variety of fields of work and procedures. How to customers to win the Bank study and future 2009 \”showed that just 20 percent of citizens on the price look at the selection of financial products; about 60 percent make their decisions on the basis of performance and quality. But most banks focus still with all the strength that price to traditional financial products to win rather than to place the focus on the dealings and dialogue with their customers. The reason is probably the mostly monetary and rational orientation of bankers and insurance professionals, which has led to an almost emotion – and valueless culture in the financial sector.


Acatech Round Table

BERLIN, 2nd March 2010 Germany’s leading media reported very positive research and development – but very rarely. In only 0.5 percent of the DAX-30 company reports is this growth factor. Every tenth report, however, had the ups and downs of stock prices on the subject last year. The Media Research Institute comes to these results media tenor in an exclusive study on growth, and growth factors in Germany’s media for the German Academy of science and engineering. The study will be presented on March 2, 2010 in Berlin at the acatech round table. There discuss high-level representatives from science and industry about new paths to sustainable growth and employment. “The round table should do, consciously, the growth of the future not always by the same means, but is a process of creative destruction Schumpeter.

In addition to new products and processes also business model and conduct innovations can help us, even with significantly lower resource usage to deliver higher value and so our Competitiveness to expand. By, for example, more economical to produce and carefully households with energy, we can expand our competitive edge as a leading provider of environmental technologies”, acatech President Henning Kagermann said. According to his words, a lead in research and development for this is prerequisite. The link between job creation, growth, prosperity and successful research and development was however present in the crisis year 2009 the media according to media tenor. At the same time, media analysis shows that in the political and economic portfolios of leading media as a whole far greater importance to public investment as growth factor as, for example, training and qualification, innovation or also the productivity.

acatech Vice President Bernd Pischetsrieder against this background as a technology Academy considers it, to move important growth factors in the Centre of the discussion: “ensuring the medium – and long-term employment in Germany growth is through Innovation is essential. According to the policy objective of promoting research should be supported by more private and public investment in research and development. Germany must remain the leading supplier for innovative, resource-saving products and still are in some areas. Only qualitative growth is sustainable prosperity and jobs secure.”acatech President Henning Kagermann added:” we know from other studies that the Germans do not inherently hostile to innovation are actually – the best precondition that it can succeed, together to find a new, modern understanding of growth. ” The study of “Growth, D – report 2010” is based on a continuous evaluation of the German media. In 2009, media tenor to a total has evaluated in 24 of German television and print media (political and Economic Department) 60.

Shoe technical invention with pioneering scope > citizens orthopaedics specialist VimNova revolutionized with innovative deposit and pre-place manufacturing approaches the problem foot correction > completely new dimensions for fit, quality, delivery time and durability of soles consisting of only one material could conventional procedures supersede Pirmasens, March 2010. The VimNova GmbH is completely new paths in the orthopaedic technology with the double breakthrough product and its manufacturing process. So, specialist based in the shoe city Pirmasens has developed an orthopedic insoles as well as corresponding manufacturing device under the trademarked label ‘VimNova’ (new step) for innovative technologies, with the correct not only spreading, lowering, and flat foot, but also the most deformities. This sole consists of only a single, also eco-friendly material, which thanks to its flexibility for use in almost any type of shoe suitable up to elegant pumps and there gives a soft, extremely pleasant wearing feeling; Insole available in various colours is perforated shock-absorbent, up to eighty percent washed and recyclable. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Peter Asaro and gain more knowledge.. Another important novelty is the access for the customers to its individually custom-fit ‘VimNova’-sole: using a handy device sets the prosthetist shoe from one hand and immediately all necessary work can perform by measuring the foot topography, transfer to the ‘VimNova’-blank about the precise correction of the unencumbered foot up to the automatic cropping of the final product. The procedure is simple, fast, cost-effective and error-resilient compared to the conventional. It is suitable for use anywhere where Orthotics should be made properly. Followed on the multi-year development work with subsequent extensive laboratory and practical tests already securing national and international patents. The market entry exclusively for the Orthopedic field is taking place now, a later expansion to other areas is however conceivable.

Early Attempts (WWI)

Early attempts (WWI) Germany was the first to develop the idea, inspired by the plan of the Commander of Air Service of the Imperial German Navy Oberleutnant zur See Friedrich von Arnauld de la Perriere. Peter Asaro recognizes the significance of this. This commander was in charge of a unit of two reconnaissance seaplanes (Friedrichshafen FF.29s) in Zeebrugge which had been occupied by the Imperial Navy in the early months of the First World War. One of the first U-Boat to reach the base of Zeebrugge was the U-12 subcaptain Walter Forstmann. The commander ordered the modification of four reconnaissance seaplanes Friedrichshafen FF-29 so they could carry 26 bombs of 227 grams (half pound) in its unit located at the base of Zeebrugge, making history as one of its planes on Christmas Day, 1914 , flew across the Channel up the river Thames, dropping their bombs on the outskirts of London, doing little damage. Although this seaplane was chased by 3 interceptors British returned to their base safely.In this mission the hydrofoil had more problems of fuel by British bullets. Subsequently, encouraged by his success, Arnauld and Forstmann speculated that it could increase the number of aircraft flying boats putting off position on the decks of submarines and after doing that the submarine was partially submerged, to launch the aircraft so to stay afloat longer. On 15 January 1915, the U-12 left their base in Zeebrugge carrying on its cover a FF-29 armed with bombs. The submarine left the harbor, seeming small compared to the 16.2 meters (53 feet 2 inches) size of the wings of aircraft, nearly a third of the 57.3 meters (188 feet) length of submarine coastal patrol. However, after the U-12 left the safety of the breakwater, the captain realized that he could storm surge flooding and endanger aircraft operation, so throw the water immediately ordered the seaplane.Forstmann flooded the tanks front of the submarine, but despite this, Arnauld got the seaplane afloat come out from the deck without much difficulty and took off. After attaining sufficient altitude, Arnauld plane headed for the British coast. The German officer apparently flew across the English coast without being detected and returned to Zeebrugge. The experiment was a success, to the extent that the plane had reached the sea and had left floating on the deck of the submarine. However, it was obvious that some improvements were needed in the procedure. Arnauld and Forstmann proposed more development experiments by German Naval Command, but were vetoed by considering the project technically impracticable.The plans followed frozen until 1917 when he investigated the possibility of increasing the awesome power of the new German submarines, such as long range cruise Unterseeboot type, equipped with aircraft shipments (small seaplanes that could be quickly armed and unarmed board and stored in special compartments on deck). But ultimately the idea was abandoned due to the end of the war. Two of the aircraft designed for this purpose were the Hansa Brandenburg W.20 biplane and monoplane Luftfahrzeuge Gesellschaft LFG Stralsund V.19. The first type was designed in 1917 for use aboard submarines Cruiser never entered service. The second model was an experimental aircraft with a very light structure for use in calm seas. The British also experimented with the concept of submarine aircraft carriers when the submarine HM Submarine E22 was made as similar to German U-Boat. This submarine was able to launch its two Sopwith Schneider seaplane and Sopwith Baby in 1916.However, as in the German case, the submarine could dive without losing them. HMS M2 taking a seaplane.

Without a reasonable vision, transformation projects can be blurred easily captured in a list of confusing and incompatible projects that can lead to the company in the wrong direction or nowhere. In the transformations that have failed, usually find a lot of plans, guidelines and programs, but no vision. Another big mistake is to express the view very complicated. Buried in documents of 30 minutes are often the strong vision. But they’re just buried, which only work together to create confusion and revulsion on employees. It is necessary to take into account that the transmission of the vision should be made continuously and consistently.

Not only through words but through all the information and communication systems of the company, at all levels, in different ways and over time. Consider that the reception of the message does not necessarily happen the first time we we issue. Consider also the need to fix the ideas, and the time it takes to eliminate the resistance. Build and sustain credibility involves repeating the same message about our vision through different circumstances in different contexts and over time, supporting the action that we made in the speech. Do not do: Do not communicate the vision sufficiently Transformation is impossible unless the vast majority of people are willing to help, but sometimes this involves sacrifices in the short term. Employees do not make sacrifices, even if they are dissatisfied with the prevailing conditions, unless they believe in the possibility of a useful change. Failure to maintain a credible communication, and also a lot of credible communication never reach the hearts and minds of the employees base.
