I am currently working on a paper to compare the French and German laws on renewable energies and the production of electricity that were presented in 2014. During my hunt for information, I came across a very interesting presentation from the French-German office for Renewable Energy (based in Berlin) that give very nice figures. It is in French, but surely understandable for a wider non-French speaking audience. Click on the image hereafter to be redirected to the presentation.
Then tomorrow, we go to Feldheim, which is a village 100 % sustainable for electricity and warmth production. Can't wait to visit it! There is an article in the Speigel about it, but it is from 2012 and they now have a renewable energy center to inform visitors. I'll dutifully report on that!
A (good) month has passed without me posting anything... But the new year is here and it is time to give some updates on my energy side of life! But before we start, my best wishes for a year full of energy, with wind in the back! Well, you know my wish for 2015: finding a job! (not too original I agree, but desperately true!)
In december, we had a course on the Environment laws in Germany, and I was appointed with the task: "Noise emission by wind turbines: relevance for getting authorisation to build and in terms of environmental regulations"...
