    In this project, a nation-wide, ecotoxicologically-based sediment survey was carried out. For this purpose, a total of about 200 sediment samples from 12 selected large German rivers (Danube, Elbe, Ems, Main, Mosel, Neckar, Neisse, Odra, Rhine, Ruhr, Saar and Weser) were analysed with regard to abiotic parameters (heavy metals, PAH, organic carbon content, particle size) and also by means of two biological test systems with benthic invertebrates (nematode test with the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans and chironomid test with the non-biting midge Chironomus riparius). Subsequently, this comprehensive data set was analysed statistically. By means of an iterative method, a five-stage, statistically-derived assessment concept which is founded on the results of the biological tests, was developed following the EU water framework directive. In general, the classification with the nematode test turned out to be the more sensitive method. A principal component analysis and correlations showed that the parameters of both biotests provide different information which suggests a combined use of both tests. Correlations also indicate a connection of biotest results and abiotic parameters (organic carbon content, particle size and heavy metal contamination). (orig.) [German] Im Projekt wurde eine bundesweite oekotoxikologische Sedimentkartierung grosser Fliessgewaesser durchgefuehrt. Dazu wurden insgesamt etwa 200 Sedimentproben aus 12 ausgewaehlten grossen Fluessen Deutschlands (Donau, Elbe, Ems, Main, Mosel, Neckar, Neisse, Oder, Rhein, Ruhr, Saar und Weser) auf ihre abiotischen Parameter (Schwermetalle, PAK, organischer Kohlenstoffgehalt, Korngroesse) hin analysiert sowie mit zwei biologischen Testverfahren mit benthischen Invertebraten (Nematodentest mit dem Fadenwurm Caenorhabditis elegans und Chironomidentest mit der Zuckmuecke Chironomus riparius) untersucht. Dieses umfangreiche Datenmaterial wurde anschliessend statistisch ausgewertet und mit Hilfe eines iterativen

  2. Critical metals in the great transformation; Kritische Metalle in der Grossen Transformation

    Exner, Andreas; Held, Martin; Kuemmerer, Klaus (eds.)

    2016-07-01

    Tiefsee gewinnen laesst. Kritische Metalle werden in den uebergreifenden Zusammenhang der anstehenden Grossen Transformation eingeordnet. Das Buch beleuchtet insbesondere die grundlegende Bedeutung der stofflichen Voraussetzungen der Energiewende und die energetischen Voraussetzungen der Stoffwende wie auch der Digitalisierung. Damit laesst sich zeigen, dass nicht nur seltene Erden kritisch sind, sondern ebenso Industriemetalle wie etwa Kupfer. Ressourcenpolitik zielt unter anderem auf Sicherung der Primaerversorgung mit Technologiemetallen, auf Ressourceneffizienz, Recycling und Substitution kritischer Stoffe. Trotz erster Erfolge ist die Dynamik in Richtung einer zunehmenden Dissipation wertvoller kritischer Metalle ungebrochen. Noetig ist eine rasche Umsteuerung mit dem Ziel, kritische Metalle nicht laenger im grossen Stil zu verbrauchen, sondern sie klug zu gebrauchen.

  3. Water emission inventory for the Federal Republic of Germany; Emissionsinventar Wasser fuer die Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Within the frame of this project, a concept for setting up exemplary emission inventories for water was put forward. An overview is given of the international activities on emission inventories and the status of national emission inventories. Based on the data situation in Germany, it was necessary to include both plant-specific, aggregated and calculated data of the point sources in the inventories. Due to their increasing significance, diffuse material emissions into water were also taken into account. Based on the conceptual work, exemplary emission inventories were compiled for nitrogen, phosphorous and adsorbable organic combined halides (AOX) as well as the heavy metals arsenic, cadmium, chrome, copper, mercury, nickel, lead and zinc. These were evaluated according to the areas of origin (sectors) or the emission paths as well as according to the large river basins Danube, Rhine, Ems, Weser, Elbe, Oder, North Sea and Baltic Sea. In addition, lists of the ten largest industrial direct dischargers were compiled. (orig.) [German] Im Rahmen dieses Vorhabens wurde ein Konzept fuer die Erstellung von beispielhaften Emissionsinventaren fuer Gewaesser erarbeitet. Es wird ein Ueberblick ueber die internationalen Aktivitaeten zu Emissionsinventaren und den Stand beim Aufbau von nationalen Emissionsinventaren gegeben. Auf Grund der Datensituation in Deutschland war es erforderlich, dass sowohl anlagenspezifische als auch aggregierte sowie berechnete Daten der Punktquellen in die Inventare einbezogen wurden. Wegen ihrer zunehmenden Bedeutung werden die diffusen Stoffeintraege in die Gewaesser ebenfalls beruecksichtigt. Aufbauend auf den konzeptionellen Arbeiten wurden beispielhafte Emissionsinventare fuer Stickstoff, Phosphor und adsorbierbare organisch gebundene Halogene (AOX) sowie die Schwermetalle Arsen, Cadmium, Chrom, Kupfer, Quecksilber, Nickel, Blei und Zink zusammengestellt. Die Auswertung erfolgte sowohl nach den Herkunftsbereichen (Branchen) bzw. den

Die Bücher von Ines Kalisch und Jutta Schumann leisten dazu Beiträge, die auch den Fortschritt feministischer Rechtswissenschaft in Deutschland dokumentieren.The doctrine of human rights and equality and the analysis of factors which constitute gender inequality and discrimination in and by law, even those laws seemingly neutral at first glance, has to be rethought after the German constitution was amended in 1994 to include a right to equality in social reality. These books by Ines Kalisch and Jutta Schumann add to our understanding of these legal questions, and also present the rise in feminist legal scholarship in Germany.

  5. Analyse der Literatur zu Klimawirkungen in Deutschland: ein Gesamtbild mit Lücken

    Fleischhauer, Mark; Greiving, Stefan; Lindner, Christian; Lückenkötter, Johannes; Schauser, Inke

    Dieses Kapitel präsentiert Ergebnisse einer umfassenden Literaturauswertung zu relevanten Klimawirkungen für Deutschland, die im Rahmen des Projekts "Netzwerk Vulnerabilität" vorgenommen wurde. Es zeigt auf, dass ein aggregiertes Gesamtbild der Klimawirkungen für Deutschland als Grundlage für Folgenabschätzungen und Anpassungsplanungen noch nicht gezeichnet werden kann, da eine große Bandbreite an Ansätzen zur Bewertung von Vulnerabilitäten oder Klimawandelfolgen existiert und die gegenwärtig vorhandenen Klimawirkungs- und Vulnerabilitätsstudien von großer Heterogenität gekennzeichnet sind. Als erster Schritt wird deshalb eine Zusammenschau bereits vorhandener Ansätze geliefert.

    More than 500 mining lakes of different age and maturity have formed in the lignite mining areas in Germany during the last hundred years. Compared to natural lakes mining lakes have a complex and diverse morphometry. They will be among the largest and deepest lakes in Germany (Hambacher See, Goitsche, Garzweiler II, Geiseltal) and have good chance of avoiding eutrophication. About 100 mining lakes will be greater than 50 ha. 230 lakes are documented in this report concerning morphometry, flooding and mixis regime, hydrochemistry, limnology, colonization, use and development of water quality. They are among the largest (Hambacher See, Goitsche, Garzweiler II, Geiseltal) and most acidic lakes in Germany. The extremely high acidity is from both iron and hydrogen ions due to pyrit oxidation. It influences trophic situation and food webs in mining lakes and reduces a diverse use of these lakes. (orig.) [German] Die Seelandschaft Deutschlands wird durch den Braunkohlenbergbau um ueber 500 Seen reicher. Technologiebedingt herrscht dabei eine grosse morphologische Vielfalt innerhalb der Tagebauseen vor, welche die groessten und tiefsten Seen Deutschlands hervorbringen wird (Hambacher See, Goitsche, Garzweiler II, Geiseltal), aber auch zahlreiche kleine, meist flachere Gewaesser miteinschliesst. Etwa 100 Taugebauseen sind groesser als 50 ha. Kleinere Tagebauseen wie z.B. die der Ville in Nordrhein-Westfalen wurden ebenfalls ausfuehrlich dokumentiert. In dieser Dokumentation wurden ueber 490 Seen erfasst, 230 davon wurden in der Dokumentation nach folgenden Kriterien beschrieben: Entstehung, Flutungsregime, Morphometrie und Mixis, Chemismus und Gewaesserentwicklung, Besiedlung und Nutzung. Dem Problem der Versauerung durch die Verwitterung sulfidischer Mineralien (Pyrit, Markasit) wurde besondere Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet, weil sich biologische Komponenten und Gewaesserzustaende (Trophie, Nahrungsketten) abweichend zu den normalen Hartwasserseen Deutschlands verhalten und

    Full Text Available Zwei 'jahrhunderthochwasser' in elf jahren - ein vergleich der hochwasserereignisse von 2002 und 2013 (in Deutschland. Worldwide floods are among the most frequent and most momentous natural disasters. They occur in unpredictable intervals and dimensions and always bring particularly devastating or catastrophic impacts, if they get into contact with people or its uses. Within eleven years only Germany was affected of two so-called 'century-floods'. The expiry of extreme high water can be influenced by technical measures only up to a certain degree. It is therefore necessary to have a high protection from the effects of floods and to keep the impact as low as possible. Both being prepared as well as possible and being capable of acting for the case of emergency are corequisite. Flood protection is a longsome and s steadily continuing process. In dealing with the consequences of floods both political measures and the commitment and solidarity of the citizens were in demand.

    2002-02-01

    The final storage of radioactive waste and spent fuel in Germany - who, in Germany, has any interest in this subject, especially now that the new Atomic Energy Act has been adopted, and who is going to read this article? The author, Professor Klaus Kuehn, examines this question, analyzing in his contribution the current situation and the points of view of those who may be interested in this topic. In Prof. Kuehn's opinion, the addresses in particular are these: - the federal government, - the opposition in the federal parliament, - the federal states, - the Federal Ministry for the Environment, - the Federal Ministry for Research, - the Federal Ministry of Economics, - the Federal Office for Radiation Protection, - the operators of nuclear power plants, - the Working Group Elaborating Procedures for Selecting Repository Sites (AkEnd). Klaus Kuehn concludes that there is little interest at the present time in the subject of Final Storage in Germany, for reasons explained in detail which result both from the political constellation and from existing constraints. (orig.) [German] Die Endlagerung radioaktiver Abfaelle: 'Wer in Deutschland interessiert sich eigentlich fuer dieses Thema? Insbesondere jetzt, nach der Verabschiedung des neuen Atomgesetzes?

  20. Einstellung und Wissen von Lehramtsstudierenden zur Evolution - ein Vergleich zwischen Deutschland und der Türkei

    Graf, Dittmar; Soran, Haluk

    Es wird eine Untersuchung vorgestellt, in der Wissen und Überzeugungen von Lehramtsstudierenden aller Fächer zum Thema Evolution an zwei Universitäten in Deutschland und der Türkei erhoben worden sind. Die Befragung wurde in Dortmund und in Ankara durchgeführt. Es stellte sich heraus, dass ausgeprägte Defizite im Verständnis der Evolutionsmechanismen herrschen. Viele Studierende, insbesondere aus der Türkei, sind nicht von der Faktizität der Evolution überzeugt. Dies gilt sowohl für Studierende mit Fach Biologie als auch für Studierende mit anderen Fächern. Näher untersucht worden sind die Faktoren, die die Überzeugungen zur Evolution beeinflussen können, was ja in Anbetracht der hohen Ablehnungsrate der Evolution von besonderem Interesse ist. Das Vertrauen in die Wissenschaft spielt hierbei eine besondere Rolle: Wer der Wissenschaft vertraut, ist auch eher von der Evolution überzeugt, als diejenigen, die skeptisch gegenüber der Wissenschaft sind.

    A summary is given of the consequences, both positive and negative, of international non-proliferation policy. The numerous, complex branches and connections of national measures and inter-stake agreements for the peaceful, controlled uses of nuclear technology and related military technologies are expertly described, and assessed on their effectiveness. Weak aspects of the nuclear non-proliferation regime are pointed out and past reforms are illustrated and assessed in the light of recent developments. The interests of the German Federal Republic from the centre of this analysis. The author shows that, after a certain hesitary, German diplomacy has now become active in the establishment of an international non-proliferation regime. He concludes that Germany should take a strong initiative role in maintaining a peaceful international nuclear order. (orig.) [Deutsch] Es wird ein Resuemee der bisherigen Erfolge und Misserfolge internationaler Nichtverbreitungspolitik gezogen. Die komplexen, vielfach veraestelten und verschachtelten nationalen Massnahmen und zwischenstaatlichen Vereinbarungen zur Ueberwachung und friedlichen Zweckbindung von Nukleartechnologie und militaerisch relevanten Anschlusstechnologien werden sachkundig erlaeutert und auf ihre Wirksamkeit ueberprueft. Schwachstellen des nuklearen Nichtverbreitungsregimes werden offengelegt, Reformschritte der vergangenen Jahre werden dargestellt und im Lichte der juengsten Entwicklungen bewertet. Dabei steht die Interessenlage der Bundesrepublik Deutschland im Zentrum der Analyse. Der Autor zeigt, dass die deutsche Diplomatie sich nach einer gewissen Zurueckhaltung schliesslich aktiv in die Gestaltung des internationalen Nichtverbreitungsregimes eingeschaltet hat. Er plaediert fuer eine kraftvolle Initiativrolle Deutschlands zur Erhaltung einer friedlichen internationalen Nuklearordnung. (orig.)

    Hamprecht, Jens [BASF SE, Ludwigshafen (Germany)

    2012-11-01

    Up to 80% of all Germans use newspapers for collecting biomass waste, even if it is unhygienic and the paper will soak. This is just one of the many examples of the Germans' readiness to separate waste fractions and save resources. Separation of biomass waste and composting is another field where Germany is ahead of other countries, but the potential is still not fully utilized by far. More hygienic collecting of biomass waste would be possible if biodegradable plastic containers were used. (orig.) [German] Bis zu 80% der Buerger in Deutschland verwenden bisher Zeitung zum Sammeln von Bioabfaellen, selbst wenn es unhygienisch ist und die Zeitung leicht durchweicht. Und das ist nur einer von vielen Beweisen fuer die hohe Bereitschaft der Deutschen zur Abfalltrennung und damit zur Ressourcenschonung. Kein Wunder also, dass in Deutschland auch die Bioabfalltrennung und Kompostierung im Vergleich zu anderen Laendern sehr weit entwickelt ist. Trotzdem ist das Potential noch bei weitem nicht ausgeschoepft. Mit Hilfe von bioabbaubaren Kunststoffen kann den Buergern eine hygienischere Sammlung von Bioabfall ermoeglicht werden. (orig.)

    The objective of the energy policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 up to 80 to 95% compared to 1990, can be achieved only by a substantial decarbonisation of the energy production. For this purpose, in addition to the assessment of the technical and economic effects, information is necessary which views the population has use to coal and coal exit in Germany. Based on the results of a representative panel survey is first identified what citizens know about the use of coal, which attitudes they have and how they value the need for coal power plants. Then the awareness of the topic of coal exit in Germany, the understanding of the respondents, and the attitudes of the population to it will be illustrated. [German] Die Zielsetzung der Energiewende, die Treibhausgasemissionen bis zum Jahr 2050 um 80 bis 95 % gegenueber 1990 zu reduzieren, laesst sich nur durch eine weitgehende Dekarbonisierung der Energieerzeugung erreichen. Hierfuer sind neben der Abschaetzung der technischen und oekonomischen Auswirkungen auch Informationen darueber notwendig, welche Auffassungen die Bevoelkerung zur Kohlenutzung und zum Kohleausstieg in Deutschland hat. Anhand der Ergebnisse einer repraesentativen Panelbefragung wird zunaechst aufgezeigt, was Buergerinnen und Buerger ueber die Kohlenutzung wissen, welche Einstellungen sie dazu haben und wie sie die Notwendigkeit von Kohlekraftwerken bewerten. Anschliessend werden die Bekanntheit des Themas Kohleausstieg in Deutschland, das Verstaendnis der Befragten und die Einstellungen der Bevoelkerung zu diesem beleuchtet.

    Full Text Available Vor dem Hintergrund der Flüchtlingsdebatte in Deutschland 2015 wird in diesem Beitrag danach gefragt, welche (Massen-Kommunikationskanäle Flüchtlinge vor, während und nach der Flucht nutzen, um sich über migrationsrelevante Themen zu informieren und sich darüber mit anderen Migrationswilligen auszutauschen. Dabei wird nicht nur die Frage nach der subjektiven Bewertung der genutzten Quellen gestellt, sondern auch untersucht, ob die Flüchtlinge eine informierte Entscheidung in den verschiedenen Phasen der Migration treffen. Auf Basis des Uses-and-Gratifications-Ansatzes und der Handlungstheorie (symbolischer Interaktionismus wurden zwischen November 2015 und Februar 2016 vier Fokusgruppen und 36 Tiefeninterviews mit syrischen und irakischen Flüchtlingen durchgeführt. Die Ergebnisse verdeutlichen, dass sich die befragten Flüchtlinge vor und während der Flucht gut informiert fühlten, da persönliche Kontakte und soziale Medien die Informationsbedürfnisse weitgehend befriedigen konnten. Informationsdefizite zeigten sich vor allem nach der Ankunft in Deutschland.

    2000-07-01

    Against the background of the discussion concerning the Reimbursement Act (StrEG) and the draft Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), the Bundesverband Windenergie e.V. (BWE) asked the Deutsches Windenergie-Institut (DEWI) to investigate the current cost situation of wind power in Germany. This involved a statistics of wind power generation cost over a period of 20 years. The data were obtained from wind power system operators, technical experts, producers of wind power systems and insurance companies. It was found that especially the cost of component replacement was higher than expected, so that long component life must be one of the main goals in the further development of wind power systems. According to the technical experts, component life today is much less than the rated life of 20 years. [German] Vor dem Hintergrund der Diskussion um das Stromeinspeisegesetz (StrEG) bzw. des Neuentwurfs zum Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz (EEG) wurde das Deutsche Windenergie-Institut (DEWI) vom Bundesverband Windenergie e.V. (BWE) beauftragt, eine Studie ueber die aktuelle Kostensituation in Deutschland zu erarbeiten. Erstmals wurden hierbei Stromerzeugungskosten aus Windenergieanlagen (WEA) ueber einen Zeitraum von 20 Jahren ermittelt. Hierbei wurden Umfrageergebnisse von Betreibern von WEA, technischen Sachverstaendigen sowie von Herstellern von WEA und Versicherungsgesellschaften verwendet, um belastbare Aussagen ueber Betriebskosten und notwendige Ersatzinvestitionen zu erhalten. Insbesondere die Aussagen ueber notwendige Ersatzinvestitionen durch die technischen Sachverstaendigen waren hoeher als erwartet, so dass es in Zukunft Ziel sein muss, insbesondere bei der Weiterentwicklung von WEA auf wesentlich laengere Lebensdauern der Bauteilkomponenten von WEA zu draengen. Nach Aussage der technischen Sachverstaendigen liegen bisher die Lebensdauern wesentlicher Bauteile der WEA, wie Rotor, Bremssystem, Pitchregelung usw., weit unter der kalkulierten Lebensdauer von 20 Jahren

    During the past few years, several projects involving ground source heat pumps were carried out in western Germany, especially in the Rhine-Main and Rhine-Ruhr-Sieg region including the cities of Frankfurt and Cologne. Some of the project partners are big names in industry, e.g. an office building of PhilipsSparte APD at Wetzlar and the museum building of chocolate producer Ritter Sport. Other projects are sited in rural regions, from the Black Forest to the Weserbergland hills. The contribution presents several interesting projects, e.g. the police headquarters building at Bonn (right bank, groundwater use) and the office building of the Federal Office of Environmental protection, also at Bonn (left bank, geothermal probles), and three school buildings in the Frankfurt/Main region at Glashuetten, Bad Homburg-Oberstedten and Usingen-Eschbach.

  1. Das Framework for Information Literacy. Neue Impulse für die Förderung von Informationskompetenz in Deutschland?!

    Fabian Franke

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available Das Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education wurde im Januar 2016 vom Vorstand der Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL beschlossen. Es beruht auf der Idee von „Threshold Concepts“ und sieht Informationskompetenz in einem engen Zusammenhang mit Wissenschaft und Forschung. Dadurch legt es bei der Vermittlung von Informationskompetenz eine starke Betonung auf das „Warum“, nicht nur auf das „Was“. Der Ansatz des Framework wird vielfach kontrovers diskutiert. Bietet er tatsächlich eine neue Sichtweise auf die Förderung von Informationskompetenz oder ist er überwiegend alter Wein in neuen Schläuchen? Kann das Framework neue Impulse für die Aktivitäten an den Bibliotheken in Deutschland setzen oder beschreibt es etwas, was wir längst machen? Der Beitrag versucht, Anregungen zu geben, welche Konsequenzen das Framework für unsere Kurse haben kann und welche veränderten Lernziele mit ihm verbunden sein können. Dabei plädiert er für ein umfassendes Verständnis von Informationskompetenz, das sich nicht auf Einzelaspekte wie Recherchekompetenz beschränkt. The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education was adopted by the Board of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL in January 2017. It is based on the idea of threshold concepts and connects information literacy, research and scholarship. Therefore it focuses primarily on the “Why”, not only on the “What”. The approach of the Framework has often been controversially discussed. Does it actually provide a new perspective on the promotion of information literacy? Can the Framework provide new impetus for the activities of the German libraries, or does it describe something we are already doing? The paper tries to give suggestions how the framework may help to improve our courses. The author argues for a comprehensive understanding of information literacy, which is not limited to individual aspects such as research

  2. Raw materials and energy - effects of globalization on the safety of German's supply sufficiency; Rohstoffe und Energie. Auswirkungen der Globalisierung auf die Versorgungssicherheit Deutschlands

    Wellmer, F.W. [Technische Univ. Berlin (Germany)

    2001-07-01

    Raw material deposits are not mobile, so globalisation has always been an important element of raw materials production and trade. Raw materials production and transport should be regarded as a large-scale system. Lower freight rates have made overseas transport possible even for bulk raw materials. If we look at Germany's raw materials supply, we find that we are customers buying from the whole world. [German] Da Lagerstaetten ortsgebunden sind, ist Globalisierung seit jeher ein wesentliches Element von Rohstoffgewinnung und handel. Rohstoffgewinnung und Transportmoeglichkeiten muessen als Grosssystem betrachtet werden. Nicht zuletzt wegen der gesunkenen Frachtraten ist der ueberseeische Transport heute selbst fuer Massenrohstoffe moeglich geworden. Betrachtet man die Rohstoffversorgung Deutschlands, wird deutlich, dass wir Kunde der ganzen Welt sind. (orig.)

  3. Potential applications of medium-sized, superconducting magnetic energy storage devices (SMES) in Germany; Einsatzmoeglichkeiten fuer mittelgrosse supraleitende magnetische Energiespeicher (SMES) in Deutschland

    Prescher, K; Nick, W; Vollmar, H E; Kleinmaier, M; Radtke, U

    1995-05-01

    The paper addresses economic aspects of applying SMES instead of conventional methods in the electricity supply sector in Germany. Compared to the process of throttling of turbine valves hitherto used in steam power plants, the use of SMES will bring about advantages such as fuel savings, reduced emission, and improved utilisation of the existing power plant park in Germany. The paper presents a feasibility and cost study of a specified application of SMES. (orig.) [Deutsch] Praesentiert werden wirtschaftliche Beurteilungen, supraleitende Energiespeicher statt konventioneller Methoden in der elektrischen Energieversorgung in Deutschland einzusetzen. Anstelle der heute vorherrschenden Androsselung der Turbinenventile in Dampfkraftwerken sind bei Ersatz durch SMES Brennstoffeinsparungen, Emissionsminderungen und eine hoehere Ausnutzung des bestehenden Kraftwerksparks zu erwarten. Ein konkreter Anwendungsfall wird bezueglich technischer Machbarkeit und Kosten detaillierter untersucht. (orig.)

    The study intended to find out how fast biodegradable biomass waste bags are degraded in practical conditions in composting and fermentation plants. The plants differ with regard to the processes employed; further, rotting times may be much shorter in practice than the twelve weeks requested by DIN EN 13432 and DIN EN 14995. For the study, plant types were selected that are practically relevant for biomass waste utilisation in Germany. (orig.) [German] Ziel der vorliegenden Studie war es, herauszufinden, wie schnell kompostierbare Bioabfallsaecke unter Praxisbedingungen in verschiedenen Kompost- und Vergaerungsanlagentypen abgebaut werden. Zum einen bestehen teilweise grosse verfahrenstechnische Unterschiede zwischen den Anlagentypen, zum anderen sind die Rottezeiten in der Praxis zum Teil wesentlich kuerzer, als die in der DIN EN 13432 und DIN EN 14995 geforderten zwoelf Wochen. Fuer die Studie wurden Anlagentypen ausgewaehlt, die fuer die Verwertung von Bioabfaellen in Deutschland praxisrelevant sind. (orig.)

    Full Text Available Anhand von qualitativen und quantitativen Daten wird in dieser soziologischen Studie die Bedeutung von Religiosität, Identität und Gender in muslimischen Frauenvereinen in Deutschland untersucht. Markus Gamper verknüpft die Ergebnisse mit den kulturtheoretischen Ansätzen von Stuart Hall und Homi K. Bhabha und vertritt die These, dass ein islamischer Feminismus in Deutschland existiere. Er stellt fest, dass es den in den Vereinen organisierten Frauen gelinge, Gegendiskurse zu der deutschen Mehrheitsgesellschaft sowie zu den androzentrisch geprägten muslimischen Gemeinschaften zu entwickeln und somit Widerstand gegen Diskriminierung zu leisten. Der Autor begegnet in den von ihm untersuchten Vereinen – statt ‚unterdrückten Muslima‘, wie sie von den Medien inszeniert werden – hochgebildeten Frauen, die selbstbewusst und unabhängig ein religiöses Leben führen.Using qualitative and quantitative data, this sociological study analyzes the meaning of religiosity, identity, and gender in Muslim women’s societies in Germany. Markus Gamper connects the findings to approaches from the field of cultural theory by Stuart Hall and Homi K. Bhabha. Furthermore, he advocates the proposition that Islamic feminism exists in Germany. He states that the women who are organized in these societies succeed in developing counter discourses to German mainstream society as well as to the androcentrically coined Muslim communities, thus, making a stand against discrimination. In the analyzed societies, the author encounters – instead of “suppressed Muslim women” as they are presented by the media – highly educated women, who, confidently and independently, lead a religious life.

    A questionnaire was mailed in 3 years (1994, 1995, 1996) to all radiation facilities in Germany, which assessed equipment, indications, number of patients and treatment concepts. A total of 134 (88%) institutions returned all requested data: 22 in East and 112 in West Germany; 30 in university and 104 in community/private hospitals. The average data of each institution and of all institutions were analyzed for frequencies and ratios between different regions and institutions. A mean of 2 (range 1 to 7) megavoltage (Linac/Cobalt 60) and 1.4 (range 0 to 4) orthovoltage units were available per institution; 32 (24%) institutions had no orthovoltage equipment. A mean of 20,082 patients were treated per year: 456 (2%) for inflammatory diseases (221 hidradenitis, 78 nail bed infection, 23 parotitis, 134 not specified), 12,600 (63%) for degenerative diseases (2,711 peritendinitis humeroscapularis, 1,555 epicondylitis humeri, 1,382 heel spur, 2,434 degenerative osteoarthritis, 4,518 not specified), 927 (5%) for hypertrophic diseases (146 Dupuytren's contracture, 382 keloids, 155 Peyronie's disease, 244 not specified), 1,210 (6%) for functional disorders (853 Graves' orbitopathy, 357 not specified), and 4,889 (24%) for other disorders (e.g. 3,680 heterotopic ossification prophylaxis). In univariate analysis, there were significant geographical (West vs East Germany) differences in the use of radiotherapy for inflammatory and degenerative disorders and institutional differences (university vs community/private hospitals) in the use of radiotherapy for hypertrophic and functional disorders (p<0.05). The prescribed dose concepts were mostly in the low dose range (<10 Gy), but varied widely and inconsistently within geographic regions and institution types.

  10. "Was bedeutet ein Wal für Sie?" – Divergenzen von Walperzeptionen in Deutschland, Japan und Grönland

    Frank Sowa

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available In sozial- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Studien der 1990er Jahren fanden unterschiedliche Wahrnehmungen von Natur ihren Ausdruck in den Kategorien "Nation" und "Kultur". Auch in wissenschaftlichen und öffentlichen Diskursen zum Thema Walfang werden häufig unterschiedliche Einstellungen in kulturellen oder nationalen Kategorien ausgedrückt. Daraus resultieren Essentialisierungen, die sich begrifflich als Antiwalfangnationen vs. Walfangnationen oder fleischbasierte vs. fischbasierte Ernährungsweise fassen lassen. Der Konflikt um die Fortführung des internationalen Walfanges generiert auf diese Weise dichotomische Esskulturen. Doch unklar bleibt, welche Bedeutung eigentlich Wale für Menschen haben. Im Rahmen eines Feldforschungsprojektes wurden Menschen in Deutschland, Grönland und Japan die Abschlussfrage "Was bedeutet ein Wal für Sie?" gestellt. Es zeigt sich, dass die Antworten die dominante Perzeption von Walen, wie sie sich für euro-amerikanische Gesellschaften rekonstruieren lässt, infrage stellen und die Unterschiedlichkeit der Narrationen sich nicht entlang von kulturellen oder nationalen Grenzen begründen lässt.

  12. The production of biofuels in Germany. State of the art and optimization approaches; Die Biokraftstoffproduktion in Deutschland. Stand der Technik und Optimierungsansaetze

    2015-07-01

    Determining the status quo of existing biofuel plants in Germany, an extensive database of process configurations was received. This information was used to develop simulation models of virtual biofuel plants, which are now available for further investigations. The GHG emissions of biofuels can partly be improved by the studied optimization approaches. The studied optimization approaches can hence contribute to the increasing requirements for GHG reductions of biofuels. The integration of multiple optimization approaches in one concept would improve its GHG balance further. In addition to the investigated technical measures, emissions could also be reduced by adapting the energy supply. The use of biofuels for heat generation, for example, could have an additional reducing effect on total GHG emissions, because a fossil fuel-based heat and electricity supply is the main driver of the GHG balance. From the communication with contacts in the industry it can be said that the German biofuel industry operates production plants that have already reached a high level of efficiency. At many locations, additional measures and modifications are planned, not only driven by economic reasons but also to further improve the GHG balance. The overall results of the project will be published as DBFZ Report No. 22 ''Die Biokraftstoffproduktion in Deutschland - Stand der Technik und Optimierungsansaetze'' in 2015.

Beides, Nähe und Distanz, wird dabei nicht als innere Haltung von Forschenden oder als rigoros nationaler Stil verstanden, sondern als Produkte konkreter Arbeitspraktiken, die in Zusammenhang mit nationalen Forschungskonventionen, Rahmenbedingungen und Epistemologien stehen. Gemeinsam ist beiden Interaktionsmustern die zentrale Fundierung im amerikanischen Pragmatismus, wobei die These einer auffallend unterschiedlichen Bezugnahme auf den amerikanischen Pragmatismus in den beiden Länderkontexten diskutiert wird: Stehen in Deutschland vorwiegend dessen erkenntnistheoretische Prämissen im Mittelpunkt, sieht sich die gegenwärtige US-amerikanische Methodenlandschaft eher dessen gesellschaftspolitischen Traditionen verpflichtet.

  5. Material flows of benzene with particular consideration of the Federal Republic of Germany; Stoffstroeme von Benzol unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Boehncke, A.; Mangelsdorf, I. [Fraunhofer Inst. fuer Toxikologie und Aerosolforschung, AG Dokumentation und Bewertung von Chemikalien, Hannover (Germany); Rosner, G. [ToxConsult, Merzhausen (Germany)

    In the Federal Republic of Germany, benzene is one of the most important basic materials for the chemical industry. Only a relatively small proportion of the pure benzene processed in the chemical industry is emitted into the environment (ca. 40 t in 1991). But the substance is also a natural component of the crude oil in gasoline and is released during incomplete combustion or is formed out of other aromatic substances. The primary source of emissions, with more than 10,000 t/yr (approximately 85% of this from motor vehicles with Otto engines), is commercial motor vehicle transportation. Benzene concentrations in the environment are approximately <1 {mu}g/m{sup 3} in rural areas, 20-30 {mu}g/m{sup 3} near main roads (peak levels in highly urbanized regions with much traffic as high as approximately 100 {mu}g/m{sup 3}) and 7-15 {mu}g/m{sup 3} in the vicinity of industrial polluters. It has not been possible to detect a specific trend over time during the last ten years. An increased exposure (approx. 350-27,000 {mu}g/m{sup 3}) is likely while filling the tank and within the motor vehicle (approx. 10-200 {mu}g/m{sup 3}) due to gasoline volatilization from pipes, etc. Compared to outdoor air, higher concentrations of benzene (approx. 2-11 {mu}g/m{sup 3}) are measured in the indoor air which contains additionally benzene from tobacco smoke, equipment, renovating work and heating. The primary exposure pathway of benzene in humans is inhalation. Apart from individuals with occupational exposure, smokers have the highest internal benzene burden. Measures undertaken during recent years to reduce the amount of emissions have been counteracted at least in part by the increase in motor vehicle traffic. Further measures to reduce the emissions or to change the transportation policies must still be or have already been initiated. (orig.)

    This volume is based upon the data of the research project ``Environment and Health - Measurement and Analysis of Environmental Exposure Factors in the Federal Republic of Germany 1985/86`` (1st Environment Survey). These data were established for a representative sample of n=2731 cases selected by age, sex, and community size. It constitutes part C of the third report volume and contains the description of the concentrations of a large number of volatile organic compounds (VOC) in indoor air from households of the general population of the Federal Republic of Germany (sub-sample). Function and objectives of this third part of evaluated data are to give, as far as possible, a precise assessment of the exposure to VOC in households among the general population of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1985/86. This is to gie interested persons an orientation and a classifying survey of laboratory results to be evaluatd. In this sense, the estimated distributions of the measured concentrations are presented for the entire population as well as for the below menioned subpopulations classified by outdoor temperatures, community size, type of region, number of persons in industrial jobs in the urban/rural area, building density, year of construction of the house, floor area of home, type of heating, type of fuel, number of persons in household, children (below 14 years) in household, smokers in household, age of floor covering, age of wall coating, age of furniture, new painting/wall-paper/furniture in recent months, presence of chipboard on walls/floor, furniture from chipboard (in the case of formaldehyde only), use of insecticides, room fresheners/deodorants in toilet and of cleansing agents/disinfectants.

    . Information is provided on the purpose and capacity of nuclear fuel supply and disposal facilities. The approval history and the current operating and approval status are also displayed. In the field of final disposal, the new legal structures, supervision and ongoing projects are described. The information is summarized at the end of the report in tabular form. The report is issued annually in updated form. [German] Am 30.07.2016 ist das ''Gesetz zur Neuordnung der Organisationsstruktur im Bereich der Endlagerung'' in Kraft getreten. Es sieht vor, die staatlichen Aufgaben der Genehmigung und Aufsicht im Bereich der Kerntechnik, der Zwischenlagerung, der Standortauswahl und der Endlagerueberwachung mehrheitlich in einer neuen Behoerde zu buendeln, dem Bundesamt fuer kerntechnische Entsorgungssicherheit (BfE). Mit Inkrafttreten des Gesetzes wurden die entsprechenden Fachaufgaben des Bundesamtes fuer Strahlenschutz (BfS) auf das BfE uebertragen. Die Aufgabe zur Erstellung des jaehrlichen Statusberichtes zur Kernenergienutzung ist nunmehr Aufgabe des BfE. Fuer die operativen Aufgaben der Standortsuche, der Errichtung und des Betriebs der Endlager sowie der Schachtanlage Asse II und des Bergwerks Gorleben wird eine staatseigene Gesellschaft, die Bundesgesellschaft fuer Endlagerung (BGE), die Verantwortung uebernehmen. Der vorliegende Bericht mit dem Stand 31.12.2016 gibt einen Ueberblick ueber die Nutzung der Kernenergie in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Im Bericht aufgefuehrt sind die wesentlichen Daten aller Kernkraftwerke, Forschungsreaktoren und der Anlagen der Kernbrennstoffver- und -entsorgung. Zum Berichtszeitpunkt 31.12.2016 waren acht Kernkraftwerksbloecke in Betrieb. Die Stromerzeugung durch Kernenergie im Jahr 2016 betrug insgesamt ca. 84,6 TWh (2015: 91,8 TWh). Der Anteil der Kernenergie an der Gesamt-Brutto-Stromerzeugung betrug 13,0 % (2015: 14,2 %). Fuer die Kernkraftwerke enthaelt der Bericht in zusammengefasster Form die wesentlichen

  9. Approaches to the final storage of radioactive waste in the Federal Republic of Germany. Will responsibility be shifted to future generations?; Wege zur Endlagerung radioaktiver Abfaelle in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Wird die Verantwortung auf zukuenftige Generationen verschoben?

    With respect to the management of high-level radioactive waste in Germany, there is agreement on these premises: - The waste is to be stored permanently in the Federal Republic of Germany. - A repository is to be operational by 2030. - Final storage is to be achieved in geologic formations. Differences of opinion exist about these questions: - Should there be only one repository for all types of radioactive waste, or would a breakdown into waste generating heat and waste generating only negligible amounts of heat in different repositories be useful under aspects of safety and requirement? - Will a new site selection procedure be required in an effort to find a suitable site, and would such a selection procedure be able to meet the deadline of 2030 for an operational repository? - After the end of legal proceedings, should the Konrad repository be revamped for waste generating negligible amounts of heat? The analysis presented shows that an operational repository for waste generating heat can be made available only in connection with continued exploration work at Gorleben and demonstration of the suitability of that site and subsequent construction of the repository. If the search for a repository site were started from scratch, the date of commissioning such a facility would be after 2050. In this way, that approach would miss the purpose of not shifting the waste management issue to future generations. Acting responsibly means to build the Konrad repository speedily after completion of the legal proceedings about a permit and, in this way, avoid the addition of more interim stores for waste generating negligible amounts of heat. Further exploration of Gorleben is the way agreed upon and necessary for the creation of a repository for high-level radioactive waste generating heat by 2030. For this purpose, the 'points of doubt' must be resolved speedily. (orig.) [German] Im Hinblick auf die Entsorgung hochradioaktiver Abfaelle in Deutschland besteht

    With the help of a data assimilation technique (optimal interpolation) a comprehensive forecast of O{sub 3}, PM10 and NO{sub 2} air quality in Germany for the years 2010, 2015 and 2020 was prepared. Based on these results, an assessment was made whether the limits of the European Air Quality Directive (2008/50/EC) can be observed in 2015 and 2020. [German] In diesem Bericht wurde mit Hilfe einer Datenassimilationstechnik (Optimale Interpolation) eine flaechendeckende Prognose der O{sub 3}-, PM10- und NO{sub 2}-Luftqualitaet in Deutschland fuer die Jahre 2010, 2015 und 2020 erstellt. Auf Basis dieser Ergebnisse wurde eine Abschaetzung vorgenommen, ob die Grenzwerte der europaeischen Luftqualitaetsrichtlinie (2008/50/EG) im Jahre 2015 und 2020 eingehalten werden koennen. Weiterhin wurde untersucht, was die in der Luftqualitaetsrichtlinie festgelegten Regelungen fuer die Feinstaeube PM2.5 fuer die PM2.5-Belastung in Deutschland bedeuten und ob das nationale Ziel fuer die Reduktion der PM2.5-Belastung unter den Emissionsbedingungen des Jahres 2020 erreicht werden kann.

  11. Fracking in the conflict area between energy and environmental policy. The discussion in Germany and the Netherlands by comparison; Fracking im Spannungsfeld zwischen Energie- und Umweltpolitik. Die Diskussion in Deutschland und den Niederlanden im Vergleich

    Kontny, Kerstin

    2016-11-01

    The shale gas production using the so-called fracking method represents for opponents the use of a high-risk technology. Proponents see it, however a technological advance, and the answer to current energy issues. For the citizens of a country, the debate involves mainly uncertainties, the technology is still associated with risks that are not only difficult to assess for the layman. Due to these uncertainties, there is a danger that scientific evidence for political purposes are exploited. Particularly exciting is therefore the question of how the subject is discussed in different countries. In Fracking in the conflict area between energy and environmental policies are the debates in natural gas country Netherlands and the country of energy transition, Germany are compared. Kerstin Kontry's research put emphasis on the parties to the debate actors, the course of the debate and the issues are discussed. The main question is to what extent the discussions are shaped by national factors. [German] Die Schiefergasfoerderung mit Hilfe der sogenannten Fracking-Methode stellt fuer Gegner die Anwendung einer Hochrisikotechnologie dar, Befuerworter sehen darin hingegen einen technologischen Fortschritt und die Antwort auf derzeitige Energiefragen. Fuer die Buerger eines Landes birgt die Debatte vor allem Unsicherheiten, ist die Technologie doch mit Risiken verbunden, die nicht nur fuer den Laien schwer einzuschaetzen sind. Aufgrund dieser Unsicherheiten droht die Gefahr, dass wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse fuer politische Zwecke instrumentalisiert werden. Besonders spannend ist daher die Frage, wie die Thematik in unterschiedlichen Laendern diskutiert wird. In Fracking im Spannungsfeld zwischen Energie- und Umweltpolitik werden die Debatten im Erdgasland Niederlande und dem Land der Energiewende, Deutschland, verglichen. Den Schwerpunkt legt Kerstin Kontny dabei auf die an der Debatte beteiligten Akteure, den Verlauf der Debatte sowie die behandelten Themen. Dabei

Introduction to a Historical Study of the Great Epidemics in Austrian Bukovina Like natural disasters, wars and famine, epidemics recorded in Austrian Bukovina, affected people from all layers of society, leaving deep traces in memory and mentality. Considered as divine punishment or attributed to poverty, ignorance and lack of hygiene, they modeled different behaviors, reactions and attitudes, causing panic, tension, isolation, economic decline and, in some cases, depopulation. Information drawn from a variety of sources (from parish and civil registers to newspapers or memories provides an overview of morbid events recorded in Bucovina, from the late XVIIIth century to the early XXth century. Consecutive or recurrent episodes of plague, cholera, diphtheria, typhoid fever and typhus, measles, scarlet, smallpox and influenza have disrupted both rural and urban communities, imposing the imperial authorities, local officials, doctors, priests, teachers, and journalists to initiate some mechanisms for prevention, limitation or eradication of the disease.

  17. How satisfied are the major customers of electric utilities?; Wie zufrieden sind die grossen Stromkunden?

    Edelmann, H. [VEW Energie AG, Dortmund (Germany). Abt. Marktforschung und Volkswirtschaft

    1998-07-27

    In the liberalised electric power market, satisfying customers is a very important objective of utilities, as customers are free to enter into supply contracts with competitors in the market. Satisfaction of customers enhances customer loyalty, as many electric utilities know by now, but only few utilities have a clear picture of the level of satisfaction of their customers, and of their standing in their customers` opinion in comparison with other marketers. The article explains approaches and methods for a systematic and well-founded survey of customers and assessment of customer satisfaction. (orig./CB) [Deutsch] In einem liberalisierten Elektrizitaetsmarkt kommt der Kundenzufriedenheit eine zentrale Bedeutung zu. Diese ist massgebend dafuer, ob ein Kunde zu einem anderen Anbieter wechselt oder nicht. Hohe Kundenzufriedenheit bedeutet hohe Kundenbindung. Viele Stromversorger haben das bereits erkannt, doch nur bei wenigen existiert ein klares Bild darueber, wie zufrieden ihre Kunden tatsaechlich mit ihnen sind und wie sie im Vergleich zu anderen Stromversorgern stehen. Wie dargestellt wird, laesst sich ein solches Bild nur ueber eine systematische und fundierte Messung der Kundenzufriedenheit gewinnen. (orig./RHM)

  19. SPRACHFEHLER ALS LITERARISCHES AUSDRUCKSMITTEL ANA BILIC DAS KLEINE STÜCK VOM GROSSEN HIMMEL

    Goran Lovrić

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available This paper elaborates a theme at the interface between linguistics and literature on the case example of a novel which belongs to the immigrant literature as part of the contemporary Austrian literature. The Croatian author Ana Bilic describes in her first novel written in German language Das kleine Stück vom großen Himmel (The small part of the big sky published in 2002 the love relationship between a Croatian unnamed female student and the Austrian student Ernst which takes place in Vienna. The unusual thing in this novel is the fact that in numerous sentences and passages the author uses a strange German language which is characterized by interference mistakes, or to be precise a Croatian-German language variation which more or less differs grammatically and lexically from standard German language. In the paper this consciously alienated language is being investigated concerning the influence of the Croatian mother tongue of the author, but also concerning common mistakes while learning German language. The paper also analyses the motivation of Ana Bilic for such in the context of immigrant literature unusual language use, which is also connected with the plot of the novel. Thus qualitative as well as quantitative methods of analysis are being used, whereby the former ones refer to the content and the latter ones to the frequency of interference mistakes in the book. The interference mistakes belong on one side to the fictional (text-internal world and on the other side to the factual (text-external level, because they reflect the plot of the book and establish on the level of content and language a connection between the first-person narrator and the author, who also had to learn German after her arrival to Vienna. As a result of this most interference mistakes appear in the first chapters of the novel, which reflects the first phase in German language learning of the female narrator. Further on in the novel the quantity of the mistakes decreases parallel to the rising foreign language abilities of the narrator, which holds true for the less frequent language acquisition and competence mistakes. The aim of the Ana Bilic is obviously to show by means of the plot and the language use the mechanisms and the process of foreign language acquisition, whereby she makes an innovative contribution to the contemporary German-speaking immigrant literature

Dazu kommen die benachbarten Streifen einschliesslich der Abhaenge der Serra do Mar. 2 - Zone des Vorkommens von Anopheles (Kerteszia cruzii und bellator; das sind die quartaeren Ebenen mariner Sedimente (Restingas. 3 - Zone des Vorkommens von Anopheles (Kerteszia cruzii, bellator und homunculus; das ist das stark vertikal aufgeteilte Relief der parallel zueinander in EW-Richtung verlaufenden Gebirgszuege. 4 - Zone des Vorkommens von Anopheles (Kerteszia cruzii und homunculus; das sind die Abhaenge der Gebirgsraender des kristalinen Hochlandes, die tief durch die zum Meer gerichteten Fluesse zerschnitten sind. Ebenfalls erbigt sich, dass in den vier Zonen die Art Anopheles (Kerteszia cruzii einen gleichbleibenden Prozentsatz an Larven aufweist, woraus hervorgeht: 1 - Die Art besitzt keine bevorzugte Wohnstaette, in Bezug aur die Eiablage, in der zur Frage stehenden biogeographischen Region. 2- Die grossen Differenzen bezueglich des Prozentsatzes an positiven Brutstaetten in den bearbeiteten Gebieten haengt nicht von dem groesseren oder geringeren vorkommen der entspreschenden Art im biotop ab, sondern von den Wohnstaetten, die fuer das Leben der Arten Anopheles (Kerteszia bellator und homunculus geeignet sind. Des weiteren ersieht man, dass, im allgemeinen gesehen, eine Abnahmees der Positivitaet der Brutstaetten in der EW-Richtung besteht, dagegen ist die Verringerung in der NS-Richtung weininger akzentuiert.

An association with occupation and social status has been suggested but risk factors are not well understood. A registry-based case-control study focusing on occupation was performed in Germany.Methods: All 348 testicular cancer cases with available gainful occupational information registered between 2000 and 2005; as well as uitable controls (from a pool of other cancers were drawn from the Cancer Registry of Rhineland-Palatinate. Unconditional logistic regression was used to compute odds ratios (OR and associated onfidence intervals (CI.Results: Slightly elevated OR were observed for technicians and related professionals (OR 1.62, 95% CI 1.00–2.63 and for clerical support workers (OR 1.71, 95% CI 1.14–2.56. This increase was highest in the age group 20–50 for technicians (OR 2.02, 95% CI 1.23–3.33 and clerks (OR 2.00, 95% CI 1.30–3.09, respectively. An association with testicular cancer was observed for no other occupation.Conclusion: An increased risk of testicular cancer was observed for technicians and related professionals and clerical support workers. This could be related to socioeconomic status or sedentary life style, two factors that were identified in previous studies. While the feasibility of a purely registry-based study was shown, missing occupational data and the choice of cancer controls represent challenges to the validity of this approach.[german] Ziele: Hodenkrebs betrifft vor allem junge Männer im Alter von unter 50 Jahren.

    friedlichen Nutzung der Kernenergie in Deutschland an beruecksichtigt. Bereits 1957 wird in einem Memorandum der Deutschen Atomkommission der Hinweis auf die Notwendigkeit der sicheren Beseitigung der radioaktiven Abfaelle formuliert. Der Gesetzgeber hat diese Anregung aufgegriffen und schon im Atomgesetz vom 23.12.1959 Vorschriften zur schadlosen Verwertung radioaktiver Stoffe angelegt. Von der Bundesrepublik wurde in Zusammenhang mit dem Nuklearen Entsorgungszentrum auch nach einem geeigneten Endlagerstandort gesucht. Nach einer intensiven Standortsuche durch die Bundesregierung und das Land Niedersachsen benannte die Niedersaechsische Landesregierung 1977 Gorleben als Standort. Vorausgegangen war ein 3-stufiges Auswahlverfahren, in dem mehr als 140 Standorte betrachtet wurden. Die Arbeiten zur Erkundung des Standortes Gorleben begannen 1979 und wurden am 01.10.2000 zur Klaerung von konzeptionellen und sicherheitstechnischen Zweifeln der Bundesregierung unterbrochen. Vom BMU wird die Verfuegbarkeit eines (Hochaktiv-)Endlagers im Jahr 2030 angestrebt. Aus technischer Sicht ist eine Inbetriebnahme eines Endlagers fuer waermeentwickelnde Abfaelle in Gorleben ab dem Jahr 2025 noch erreichbar, sofern sich der Salzstock nach zuegigem Abschluss der Erkundungsarbeiten als geeignet erweist. Auf die absehbaren Problemfelder wird hingewiesen. Ein weiteres Projekt der Bundesregierung ist die Nutzung der Schachtanlage Konrad als Endlager fuer schwach- und mittelradioaktive Abfaelle. Der Planfeststellungsbeschluss wurde nach gut 20 Jahren im Mai 2002 erteilt und ist zurzeit noch beklagt. Aus den dargestellten Angaben zum erwarteten Abfallvolumen der nicht-waermeentwickelnden EVU-Abfaelle in Verbindung mit dem moeglichen Beginn des Einlagerungsbetriebs Konrad 2013 werden detaillierte Ergebnisse vorgestellt.

    Methods. Based on already in-use versions of the leaching model PELMO, an advanced version (MC-PELMO 3.0) was developed with a specific focus on estimating groundwater contamination under storage sites at wood preserving facilities in Germany. The model processes twenty-two different leaching scenarios that were derived from twelve characteristic soil profiles representing pedological regions in Germany along with recorded meteorological data from nine weather stations. These data are related to geographic distribution of industrial wood preserving activity. The model calculates statistic probabilities of concentrations of wood preservatives in seepage water beneath timber storage sites of regions to be selected by the user. Results and Discussion. The reports provided by MC-PELMO 3.0 include mean average concentrations, 55 to 99 percentiles, and single maximum concentrations for each of the scenarios. The results can be related to the total area of Germany, its forest area or to the density of preservation activity in various regions. Beside concentrations of the parent compounds, those of degradation products may be calculated for the seepage water. Conclusion. The described model is a particularly useful tool for comparative assertion of various wood preservative products under aspects of the exposure of groundwater resources. Comparative assertion is a new element within EU-chemicals policy, for the first time materialized in the biocidal products directive 98/8/EC. Furthermore, the results of model calculations identify vulnerable regions in Germany for which appropriate risk management measures have to be taken in order to protect groundwater from contamination.

    Full Text Available [english] The German graduate medical education system is going through an important phase of changes. Besides the ongoing reform of the national guidelines for graduate medical education (Musterweiterbildungsordnung, other factors like societal and demographic changes, health and research policy reforms also play a central role for the future and competitiveness of graduate medical education.With this position paper, the committee on graduate medical education of the Society for Medical Education (GMA would like to point out some central questions for this process and support the current discourse.As an interprofessional and interdisciplinary scientific society, the GMA has the resources to contribute in a meaningful way to an evidence-based and future-oriented graduate medical education strategy.In this position paper, we use four key questions with regards to educational goals, quality assurance, teaching competence and policy requirements to address the core issues for the future of graduate medical education in Germany. The GMA sees its task in contributing to the necessary reform processes as the only German speaking scientific society in the field of medical education.[german] Die ärztliche Weiterbildung in Deutschland befindet sich im Umbruch.

    Goal of the study was to create a documentary system containing the relevant information available in the Federal Republic of Germany in order to provide a wide-scale presentation of the environmental situation. The theme catalogue which has been extended and modified in the course of the research work contains about 150 items. In order to obtain trend statements, a period of at least 10 years - between 1990 and 2000 - had to be evaluated. Since most of the available empirical time series do not go beyond 1998, projections based here on allowing a foresight on the medium-term developments in the subsequent two years or more were required. In two selected theme fields, scenarios until the year 2020 had to be developed: scenarios of emissions of greenhouse gases and precursors of greenhouse gases as well as for traffic development and environmental pollution caused by traffic. The basis for the documentary administration is the data bank 'DB Grunddaten' ('basic data'). This data bank was developed by the Federal Environmental Agency and had to be completed for the presentation system environment Germany. (orig.)

    This volume contains a description of studies under the research project entitled `Environment and Health - Measurement and Analysis of Environmental Exposure Factors in the Federal Republic of Germany 1985/86` (Environmental Survey), as well as a description of concentrations of a number of elements and some compounds in blood, urine and hair. This description represents the first of five parts of the analysis of the entire data base. The aim of this analysis was to give, as far as possible, a precise assessment of the corporal exposure to pollutants of the general population in Germany. The estimated distribution of the concentrations calculated for the study population, as well as for subpopulations classified by age, sex, community size, land, smoking habits and the consumption of fish. The descriptive part is divided by the 3 types of sample material such as blood, (morning) urine and hair. Within these groups, all analyzed elements and compounds (Al, As, Ba, Pb, B, Cd, Ca, Cu, Fe, Mg, P, Hg, Sr, Zn, creatinine, cotinine and PCP) are reported separately. A short characterization is followed by thetables giving the estimated statistical parameters such as percentile values (10, 50, 90, 95 and 98), maximum value, geometric (GM) and arithmetic (AM) mean, the standard error of AM and the sample standard deviation. Additionally, the measurements are represented in the form of histograms and scatterdiagrams. (orig./MG) With 66 figs., 167 tabs., 11 attachments.

    More than all the other partner states in the European Union the Federal Republic of Germany with an ambitious programme for the protection of the climate accepted the responsibility to comply with the obligations of the Kyoto Protocol to sustainably reduce the greenhouse gases. The German electricity suppliers as important players within the framework of the 'Selfcommitment of German Business on Climate Protection' never left any doubt that they would contribute their shares. At the same time great significance must be attached to the utilisation of nuclear energy. The goals of the policy for climate protection, however, would become waste paper under a withdrawal from nuclear energy as it is currently pursued by the Federal Government. (orig.) [German] Mehr als alle anderen Partnerstaaten in der Europaeischen Union hat die Bundesrepublik Deutschland mit ihrem anspruchsvollen Programm zum Schutz des Klimas Verantwortung uebernommen, den Verpflichtungen aus dem Kyoto-Protokoll nachzukommen, die Treibhausgase nachhaltig zu vermindern.

  18. Halftime - a balance in matters nuclear of the grand coalition; Halbzeit - Bilanz der Grossen Koalition in Sachen Kernenergie

    Heller, W.

    2007-10-15

    On November 11, 2005, the coalition partners, CDU/CSU and SPD, signed the agreement establishing a coalition in the German federal parliament under the heading of ''Together for Germany''. Among other things, this raised the question of what would happen in the fields of energy policy and nuclear power. After 2 years of a grand coalition, it is time to draw some interim conclusions. The coalition agreement contains statements to the effect that energy policy means fundamental economic, structural and climate policies, and that secure, low-cost, non-polluting energy supplies are elementary prerequisites of a modern, capable national economy. A sustainable overall energy policy concept should be based on a balanced energy mix. This overall concept, one of the results of ''energy summit'' talks with Federal Chancellor Merkel, was announced for the end of 2007. The 3 energy summit discussions with Federal Chancellor Merkel deliberately avoided the subject of nuclear power. There is no debate about the implications of nuclear energy. This in no way improved the status of nuclear power in Germany. What remains is hope for the second half of this government's term of office. The beginning of that term is marked by the McKinsey study, initiated by the Federation of German Industries (BDI), on ''Cost and Potential of Avoiding Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Germany,'' which says that operating German nuclear power plants for 60 or even 45 years would result in a CO2 avoidance potential for 2020 which would be approximately 90 million tons higher, and in avoidance costs lower by 4.5 billion euro per year.

    During recent years, the quantitative description of the water fluxes and the coupled transport of physical and chemical matter in the landscape has become steadily more and more important. The reasons for this are an increasing public awareness about the possible impacts of changes of land use, land cover, and of changes in regional and global climatic conditions together with a need for sound, multi-objective management of large river basins. The investigation areas of concern a usually much larger in extent than a typically sized hydrological investigation catchment. The tools primarily used in the quantification of the hydrological fluxes at the large scale are the so-called large-scale hydrological models. These models are comparatively new and still at the stage of development and improvement. The mentioned need for advanced large-scale hydrological models provided the reason for inviting scientists from German-speaking countries with experience in large-scale hydrological and hydro-meteorological models to exchange and discuss their modelling concepts and to identify research needs. The workshop was held at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) on 15 and 16 December 1997, and was jointly organised by PIK, the University of Potsdam and the Centre for Agriculture and Land Use Research (ZALF). The workshop was attended by over 40 scientists, of whom 19 gave a presentation. (orig.)

    The publication is based on the publication 'Energy for Tomorrow's World - Acting Now.', which was published by the World Energy Council in 2000. It presents an analysis of the current situation and contains suggestions for actions that should be taken in the period up to 2020. While national energy policy will still be required, it can only be successful if global aspects are not neglected. This includes the consideration of the responsibility of the industrial nations for third world countries. The energy concept presented here intends to take account of the decisive global aspects. [German] Die Darstellung der globalen Aspekte stuetzt sich auf die Standortbestimmung 2000 des Weltenergierates 'Energy for Tomorrow's World - Acting Now.'. Diese Standortbestimmung unterzieht die Anfang der 90er Jahre erschienene globale Studie des Weltenergierates einer kritischen Ueberpruefung, stellt Abweichungen von den damals angenommenen Entwicklungsperspektiven fest und gibt vor allem konkrete Handlungsempfehlungen fuer die Zeit bis zum Jahr 2020, also fuer die Zeitspanne, die konkret ueberschaubar und gestaltbar ist. Die neue Standortbestimmung des Weltenergierates unterstreicht, dass nationale Energiepolitik zwar weiterhin notwendig ist, aber nur dann auf Dauer erfolgreich sein wird, wenn sie auf diese globalen Aspekte ausgerichtet ist. Dazu gehoert auch, dass westliche, entwickelte Laender sich bewusst sind, dass eine nationale Energiepolitik zu Lasten der Dritten Welt nicht nur keine Zukunft hat, sondern vor allem nicht zu verantworten ist. Dies gilt natuerlich ebenso fuer die Umweltpolitik. An diesen Massstaeben wird sich auch das konkrete Energiekonzept messen lassen muessen, das nun fuer die Bundesrepublik Deutschland auf der Basis des 'Energiedialogs 2000' erarbeitet werden soll. Mit der hier vorgelegten Publikation will das Deutsche Nationale Komitee des Weltenergierates dazu beitragen, dass in diesem Energiekonzept die

    Ziesing, Hans-Joachim

    2017-06-15

    In 2016, the total CO{sub 2} emissions in Germany again rose slightly. Compared to the previous year, they were about 0.5% (4.2 million tonnes) higher than in the previous year. Temperature-adjusted, however, the emissions remained practical unchanged. Emissions of all greenhouse gases are likely to have risen by around 0.4% (just under 4 million tonnes) in 2016 or have remained almost constant at the previous year's level. Independent of the assessment of the changes in the values of origin or the temperature-adjusted values, the 2016 target route was clearly missed. To this end, the unadjusted greenhouse gas emissions would have to fall by around 3,6% or around 30 million tonnes in 2016. In order to achieve the 40% reduction target by 2020, emissions must be reduced by almost 39 million t CO{sub 2} equivalents every year over the four years from 2017 to 2020. Significant climate protection policy needs are evident. [German] Im Jahr 2016 sind die gesamten CO{sub 2}-Emissionen in Deutschland erneut leicht gestiegen. Gegenueber dem Vorjahr waren sie um etwa 0,5 % (4,2 Mio. t) hoeher als im Vorjahr. Temperaturbereinigt blieben die Emissionen allerdings praktisch unveraendert. Die Emissionen aller Treibhausgase duerften 2016 um rund 0,4% (knapp 4 Mio. t) zugenommen bzw. temperaturbereinigt fast auf dem Vorjahresniveau verharrt haben. Unabhaengig von der Einschaetzung nach den Veraenderungen der Ursprungswerte oder der temperaturbereinigten Werte ist auch 2016 der bis 2020 angestrebte Zielpfad deutlich verfehlt worden. Dazu haetten die unbereinigten Treibhausgasemissionen im Jahr 2016 um rund 3,6 % oder um etwa 30 Mio. t sinken muessen. Um das Reduktionsziel von 40 % bis 2020 noch zu erreichen, muessen die Emissionen in den 4 Jahren von 2017 bis 2020 jedes Jahr um nahezu 39 Mio. t CO{sub 2}-Aequivalente gesenkt werden. Ein erheblicher klimaschutzpolitischer Handlungsbedarf ist evident.

    The emerging competition on the electric power market is expected to be primarily used in the beginning by industrial or commercial customers. In Germany, households will also have free access to the competitive market right after deregulation of the market, so that private customers may likewise wish to exploit their chances and electric utilities should continue to consider the private households in their marketing concepts. The German electric power companies launched a variety of marketing research projects concentrating on the households. The article here analyses and explains the results.

    Since Paris's historical climate agreement, it has become clear that from now on energy supply will be discussed worldwide on the premise of decarbonisation. Germany as a traditional coal country and as a land of energy transition can no longer avoid this debate. After all, the climate targets that have been adopted several times for 2030, 2040 and 2050 will ultimately mean the end of coal-fired power generation. In January 2016, Agora Energiewende presented a proposal with the eleven cornerstones for a coal consensus on how such an exit from coal-fired power generation could look like. We are concerned with a cross-party consensus that is broadly anchored in society, which gives all parties involved planning security and reliability and at the same time paves the way for a socially balanced and fairly structured transition to the new energy system. The impacts are particularly relevant for the brown coal regions concerned. In order to make the gradual phasing out of coal-fired power generation socially and economically compatible, special attention must be paid to open-cast brown coal mines and power plants as well as to regional structural change. This publication therefore takes a closer look at precisely these aspects. [German] Seit dem historischen Klimaabkommen von Paris ist klar: Die Energieversorgung wird von nun an weltweit unter der Praemisse der Dekarbonisierung diskutiert. Deutschland als traditionelles Kohleland und als Land der Energiewende kann dieser Debatte nicht laenger ausweichen. Denn die fuer 2030, 2040 und 2050 mehrfach beschlossenen Klimaziele bedeuten letztlich den Ausstieg aus der Kohleverstromung. Agora Energiewende hat im Januar 2016 mit den Elf Eckpunkten fuer einen Kohlekonsens einen Vorschlag vorgelegt, wie ein solcher Ausstieg aus der Kohleverstromung aussehen koennte. Uns geht es um einen parteiuebergreifenden, gesellschaftlich breit verankerten Konsens, der allen Beteiligten Planungssicherheit und Verlaesslichkeit gibt und

    The attorney general of the European Court of Justice considers the German minimum pricing regulation for electricity from renewable energy sources, as contained in the StrEG (act on enhanced use and minimum pricing of electricity from RES), to be in compliance with the EC prohibition on aid. This statement however does not terminate all debates, as he considers the act to be a 'barrier to trade' in the internal market in electricity. (orig./CB) [German] Der Generalanwalt des Europaeischen Gerichtshofes sieht die Mindestpreisregelungen nach dem Stromeinspeisungsgesetz (StrEG) nicht als staatliche Beihilfen. Allerdings gibt es einen neuen Knackpunkt: Der Generalanwalt sieht das Einspeisungsgesetz als 'Handelshindernis'. (orig./CB)

    Full Text Available [english] The amendments introduced to the current Veterinary Licensing Ordinance (TAppV by the Veterinary Licensing Regulation (TAppO have brought a high degree of skills orientation to fill the gap between academic study and preparing for a wide range of professional skills. In order to improve the veterinary skills of students while conveying fundamental methods in a structured and reproducible way, the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation, has set up the first central veterinary skills lab in Germany.Practical training is provided by means of a three-tier delivery approach. This involves around 40 simulators on an area of approx. 800 m² under the guidance of 6-8 staff members, along with supplementary resources such as posters, text instructions and YouTube videos. Since it opened in March 2013, there have been 769 visits to the skills lab and 30,734 hits on YouTube.Initial results show that the skills lab helps to maintain student motivation by teaching them practical skills at an early stage of the basic study-based acquisition of knowledge, whilst reinforcing skills acquisition per se in competence-based teaching. It enables veterinary students to prepare for their first examinations and treatments of live patients in a manner compliant with animal welfare.

  13. Wind power report Germany 2014; Windenergie Report Deutschland 2014

    Rohrig, Kurt (ed.)

    2015-07-01

    Record year 2014. In Germany, the expansion figures attained were so high on land and at sea that the overall new installation figure of 5,188 MW surpassed the previous maximum (from 2002) by more than 60%. With an overall capacity of 39,259 MW, for the first time, wind energy in Germany covers 9.7% of gross power consumption. On the global scale a capacity of more than 51,000 MW has been added - another record high for wind energy installations. Power mix. At 161 TWh, renewable energies in Germany covered 27.8% of gross power consumption and provided for the first time more energy than any other energy source. Coming into force of the new REA in August 2014, modified support schemes caused the expansion of biogas plants and large-scale PV installations to falter. The record expansion seen for wind energy can be interpreted as a pull-forward effect due to the tender procedures coming into force in 2017. Grid integration. Loss of production caused by feed-in management measures rose by 44% to 555 GWh as compared to 2012. Wind turbines were affected in 87% of cases but the impact on PV installations is increasing. Power generation must be more flexible and grids expanded to limit loss of production. Of the 23 expansion projects (1,887 km) in the Electricity Grid Expansion Act, just a quarter of them had been realized by the end of 2014 (463 km). In the preliminary analysis results for the 2014 grid development plan, the extent of grid upgrading and conversion was 3050 km. Offshore, the HelWin 1 grid link with a capacity of 580 MW went online. SylWin 1 and BorWin 2, with a total capacity of 1660 MW, are currently being tested in a trial. In the preliminary analysis results for the 2014 offshore grid development plan, grid connections having an overall capacity of 10.3 GW are planned. Onshore. 2014 saw a total of 44 different turbine types installed in Germany. For the first time, virtually the same number of turbines were added in the 3-4 MW class, as in the 2-3 MW class, which was previously dominant. Added turbines have on average rotor diameters of 99 m and hub heights of 115 m. For the first time new turbines were added in every state. The greatest absolute capacity expansions were in Schleswig-Holstein (1293 MW) followed by Lower Saxony (600 MW). The greatest expansion in terms of percentage was in Bavaria in the south of Germany (27%). Offshore. Global offshore expansion in 2014 was about 1.6 GW, as in the two previous years. The greatest expansion was again in the United Kingdom, followed by Germany and Belgium. A total of 2693 offshore wind turbines in 104 wind farms having a capacity of 8493 MW are connected to the grid. In Germany, 141 turbines with a total capacity of 523 MW in the DanTysk, Meerwind Sued/Ost, Nordsee Ost and Riffgat (in part) wind farms went online, meaning a total capacity of 1044 MW were installed in German waters by the end of 2014. Another 286 wind turbines with a total capacity of 1269 MW were installed but had no grid connection at the end of 2014.

  3. Die geistig-kulturelle Lage im wieder-vereinigten Deutschland

    A. M. Rauch

    1997-04-01

    In 1993 an exhibition presenting phenomena about the past, present and future of both East and West Germany took place in Berlin. It became clear that West and East Germans differ in inter alia the way in which life and existence have been experienced. East and West Germans also have different perspectives and perceptions of policy and society. Among the former GDR-citizens, nostalgia dominates the reflection on the past. It should, however, not be underestimated how deeply East and West Germans have been alienated from each other and that many East Germans think that facing a common future - together with West Germans - is more than they could handle. The difference in which life and existence have been experienced in East and West Germany is also reflected in German literature as is pointed out in the work of Ulrich Woelk. It also becomes, however, clear that the idea of a common German culture and history supplies a strong link to overcome these alienations.

    For 2001, this study ascertained an electricity demand of 38 TWh for ICT end-use appliances in households and offices and their associated infrastructure. This corresponds to a share of almost 8% of the total electricity consumption of final consumption sectors in Germany (AGEB 2002). About 50% of the power demand are accounted for by household end-use appliances, a further 20% by office end-use appliances, the remaining 30% by the infrastructure required. A clear increase in the power demand by 45% up to 55.4 TWh is anticipated up to 2010 which is primarily caused by the increasing significance of ICT infrastructure. The stock of appliances and systems of ICT infrastructure will grow noticeably and since these devices, such as servers or mobile communications systems, are continuously operated, the consumption growth in normal mode is the strongest. The consumption in standby mode shows an increasing tendency, most notably up to the middle of the decade, whereas it decreases in off-mode. However, this has less to do with efforts for greater efficiency and more to do with the expected substitution of the off- by the standby mode (especially in televisions). (orig.) [German] Fuer das Jahr 2001 wurde in dieser Untersuchung ein den IuK-Endgeraeten in Haushalten und Bueros und der zugehoerigen Infrastruktur zuzurechnender Strombedarf in Hoehe von 38 TWh ermittelt.

Rund 50% des Strombedarfs entfallen dabei auf die Haushalts-Endgeraete, weitere gut 20% auf die Buero-Endgeraete, die restlichen rund 30% auf die dafuer erforderliche Infrastruktur. Bis 2010 wird mit einem deutlichen Anstieg des Strombedarfs um 45% auf 55,4 TWh gerechnet, der vor allem durch die zunehmende Bedeutung der IuK-Infrastruktur verursacht wird.

    The calculation method of DIN V 18599 represents a very complex model for the estimation of the energy efficiency of buildings. The method is used for certificates too, thus, the number of users is quite high. This fact and the complexity of the method causes high demands on the related software products. Most of the end user software tools work with the calculation engine ibp18599kernel developed by Fraunhofer-Institut for Building Physics. There is a continuous quality control for both, the kernel and the user interfaces, i.e. the end user software. This paper gives an overview of the process of quality control as well as a documentation of a validation model used within this process, i.e. a complex administration building as a sample. (Abstract Copyright [2009], Wiley Periodicals, Inc.) [German] Mit dem Berechnungsverfahren der DIN V 18599 liegt ein umfassendes Berechnungsmodell fuer die energetische Bewertung von Gebaeuden vor.

Dieser ''Rechenmotor'' unterliegt einer steten Qualitaetskontrolle zur Sicherstellung der Berechnungsgenauigkeit. Der vorliegende Aufsatz stellt den Prozess der Qualitaetssicherung anhand eines neuen Validierungsbeispiels in Form eines komplexen Verwaltungsgebaeudes vor.

    The current price development in the German electricity market results in significant economic challenges also for larger hydropower assets. Although an ideal partner for the transformation of the German energy system (''Energiewende''), the decline of electricity prices increasingly endangers adequate operations and sustainable investments, too. Hence, not only the renewable, emission-free, flexible and decentralised generation is questions but also multiple additional services for the society which are not remunerated by an ''energy only'' market. Price determination mechanisms as well as remunerations system in general need to be reviewed - an improvement of these structures is essential for larger hydropower assets.

    2013-07-01

    The implementation of superconducting materials in high-power electrical machines results in significant advantages regarding efficiency, size and dynamic behavior when compared to conventional machines. The application of HTS (high-temperature superconductors) in electrical machines allows significantly higher power densities to be achieved for synchronous machines. In order to gain experience with the new technology, Siemens carried out a series of development projects. A 400 kW model motor for the verification of a concept for the new technology was followed by a 4000 kV A generator as highspeed machine - as well as a low-speed 4000 kW propeller motor with high torque. The 4000 kVA generator is still employed to carry out long-term tests and to check components. Superconducting machines have significantly lower weight and envelope dimensions compared to conventional machines, and for this reason alone, they utilize resources better. At the same time, operating losses are slashed to about half and the efficiency increases. Beyond this, they set themselves apart as a result of their special features in operation, such as high overload capability, stiff alternating load behavior and low noise. HTS machines provide significant advantages where the reduction of footprint, weight and losses or the improved dynamic behavior results in significant improvements of the overall system. Propeller motors and generators,for ships, offshore plants, in wind turbine and hydroelectric plants and in large power stations are just some examples. HTS machines can therefore play a significant role when it comes to efficiently using resources and energy as well as reducing the CO{sub 2} emissions.

    Already in the 2010 edition of its World Energy Outlook the World Energy Agency noted an unprecedented degree of uncertainty surrounding the international energy markets. The rate of change in these markets is indeed stupendous, posing formidable tasks to business companies as well as the political leadership. The European gas markets face new challenges in protecting their security of supply which stem from the combined effects of the shift of LNG trade flows into the Pacific region, decreasing rates of home production and the ongoing transformation process within the EU.

    The regional climate scenarios were evaluated using the climate model REMO. The model calculations were actualized and compared with observed data. The validation of the modeling results was performed using data sets concerning the temporal behavior, the precipitation amounts in several altitudes and the analysis of the probability density function of the air temperature. The results of different climate scenarios are discussed for the mean monthly values of precipitation and temperature. The model allows the prediction of the temporal development and number of summer days and extremely hot days. The change of further indices due to the climatic change caused by increasing greenhouse gas emissions is discussed.

  12. Emissions of heavy metals and lindane into German river basins; Schwermetalleintraege in die Oberflaechengewaesser Deutschlands. Quantifizierung der Schwermetalleintraege aus Deutschland zur Umsetzung der Beschluesse der Internationalen Nordseeschutzkonferenz

    Fuchs, S.; Scherer, U.; Hillenbrand, T.; Marscheider-Weidemann, F.; Behrendt, H.; Opitz, D.

    2002-12-01

    According to international agreements, encouraging all partners to diminish the emission of priority pollutants into North- and Baltic Sea significantly within a time period of 1985 to 2000, the aim of this project was to quantify the changes in the emission situation for both heavy metals and lindane within the mentioned period To reach this aim the total emissions of heavy metals (As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb, Zn) and the pesticide lindane ({gamma}-HCH) into German river systems were quantified for the periods of 1983-1985, 1993-1995 and 1999/2000. For the quantification of the emissions via point sources a nation-wide survey on heavy metal data of municipal wastewater treatment plants and industrial direct discharges was carried out. The input via diffuse pathways was calculated using an adapted version of the model MONERIS. This model accounts for the significant transport processes, and it includes a geographical information system (GIS) that provides digital maps as well as extensive statistical information. For a comparison of the calculated heavy metal emission with the measured heavy metal load at monitoring stations the losses of heavy metals due to retention processes within the river systems have to be considered. Therefore heavy metal retention was calculated according to the retention function given by Vink/Behrendt (2002). For the large river basins a good correspondence could be found between estimated and measured heavy metal loads in rivers. The total emission into the German river basins decreased for each metal during the period of 1985 to 2000. The reduction varies between 36 and 85% mainly caused by the decline of emissions via point sources. Today's emissions of heavy metals into river basins of Germany are dominated by the input via diffuse pathways. The most important diffuse pathways are paved urban areas (Cd, Cu, Hg, Pb, Zn), erosion (Pb, Cr) and groundwater (As, Ni). Since the application of the pesticide lindane is illegal today a reduction of lindane input of 67% was achieved for Germany within the period of 1985-1999/2000. Nevertheless there are significant emissions of lindane via diffuse pathways into German river systems due to the persistence of lindane in the environment. (orig.)

  13. Smoothness of running of large turbosets with particular regard to the coupling of rotor and foundation via slide bearings. Laufstabilitaet von grossen Turbosaetzen unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung der Kopplung von Rotor und Fundament ueber die Gleitlager

    Bosin, D.

    1989-01-01

    Turboset operation is still faced with the unresolved problem of self-induced vibrations resulting from the hydrodynamic forces in the sliding bearings. In addition, more elastic supporting structures will result in a coupling of the vibration patterns of the rotor and foundations. These coupling mechanisms are investigated by the author. The stability calculation is carried out as follows: The equations of motion of the coupled overall system are established by a finite element method; the large number of degrees of freedom is condensed modally, and the specific eigenvalue problem is solved using the HQR algorithm. An iterative procedure, which is made necessary by the formulation of structural damping as viscous damping, determines the stability limit as the first 'zero run' of the real part of a complex eigenvalue. Eigenvalue tracking is possible if necessary. The application of the method to a medium-sized turboset and some parameter variations show that the stability limit will be changed significantly if the foundation is considered, depending on the degree of damping and the type of slide bearing. A realistic stability calculation should therefore be based on the coupled rotor/slide bearing/foundation model. (orig.) With 53 figs., 7 tabs.

  15. Illustrations to “Gespräche in dem Reiche derer Todten zwischen dem vortreflichen Moscowitischen Czaar Petro Magno und dem grossen Tyrannen Ivan Basilowiz II” (Peter the Great and Ivan the Terrible by David Fassmann (1725

    Full Text Available The journal created by David Fassmann (1683–1744, Gespräche in dem Reiche derer Todten, edited in Leipzig, was a huge success. Each of the 240 issues presents a dialogue between two historical figures from the afterworld. In the 83rd–86th Entrevuë, the interlocutors are Peter the Great and Ivan the Terrible. The texts of the four conversations were thoroughly examined by Eckhard Matthes (1987. The present paper explores how the illustrations to the 83rd–86th Entrevuë visualize the texts, which is significant as they were an important instrument for disseminating certain notions about Russia. While the illustration to the first dialogue of the suite juxtaposes Peter and Ivan, the illustration to the second one emphasizes the similarities between them. So the image of the “tyrant” and “barbarian” Ivan becomes a reference point with which a reader is urged to compare Peter’s deeds, seeing not only the differences but also the similarities. This greatly contributes to the creation of the multifaceted image of Russia of the early 18th century. The characters of the second illustration—a tiger and an executioner—can be identified as Ivan and Peter only if the reader takes into consideration an epigram to the illustration, the illustration to the previous dialogue, the text of the next Entrevuë, and facts about the execution of the strel’tsy known from other texts and images, about which Fassmann remains silent in the spirit of ars dissimulandi, which was typical for baroque culture. The paper offers an attempt to trace the iconography of the tyrant as a tiger. In the frontispiece to the 85th Entrevuë, a secretary bringing news from the world of the living and a portrait of Catherine I emphasize the connection of the past and the present, i.e., history and policy. Finally, the illustration to the last dialogue of the series returns to the glorification of Peter the Great declared in the first dialogue.

  18. Development of a replacement technology for the standard {sup 3}He detector for the detection of thermal neutron on large areas; Entwicklung einer Ersatztechnologie fuer den Standard {sup 3}He Detektor zum Nachweis thermischer Neutronen auf grossen Flaechen

    Modzel, Gerd

    2014-07-23

    The large area Jalousie detector concept has been developed as a replacement for {sup 3}He based neutron detectors. It is based on inclined and stacked layers coated with {sup 10}B, detecting the conversion products in a gas detector. Prototypes have been built based on the requirements of the POWTEX experiment. The spatial resolution has been measured as FWHM{sub z}=11.9 mm and FWHM{sub θ}=6.4 mm, slightly above the prediction due to the range of the conversion products in the gas. The correlated anode and cathode deliver an efficiency with the expected dependency on the inclination angle. The absolute efficiency of the anode wires has been measured as 93.6% of the predicted value at 1.17 Aa, validating the detector concept. Simulations in Garfield have been made to better understand the inner workings of the detector. Tools to analyze the raw detector data have been developed, which enabled further optimizations in the data processing chain and solving some problems. A test environment has been built for the n-XYTER 2.0 chip and some preliminary tests have been conducted. They showcase some problems, but a statement about the state of the chip cannot be made yet.

  19. Die Machiavelli-Rezeption und -Interpretation im 19. Jahrhundert, besonders in Deutschland

    Dierse, Ulrich

    2016-01-01

    During the 19th century, there are some new interpretations of Machiavelli’s writings, namely a certain rehabilitation of the Principe, in various forms and degrees. The historicism tries to understand Machiavelli within the context of Renaissance culture. Others, like Hegel and Fichte, see that The Prince’s main object was to found a stable state, in order to avoid factions and civil wars. At the same time historians and others praise Machiavelli for having proclaimed the unification of Ital...

    Full Text Available Data and a drawing of the epigyne of Phoneutria boliviensis (F.O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1897, recently recorded from Germany, are presented. The specimen was introduced with cargo (bananas from Brazil. Characters of the single female are illustrated to facilitate identification in the future, since in the two recent revisions of the genus no drawing of the epigyne of P. boliviensis was included. Another case of introduction from 1998 of an unidentified subadult Phoneutria specimen, probably P. boliviensis too, with bananas from Ecuador is documented.

  3. Manual: Renewable Energy Sources in Germany; Handbuch Regenerative Energiequellen in Deutschland

    Heimann, M.

    2004-07-01

    One of the measures to reduce CO2 is the utilization of renewable energies. Meanwhile, Germany has come to play a leading role worldwide in this subject and is the world leader especially regarding the use of wind and solar energy. The manual called ''Renewable Energy Sources in Germany'' shows the present state of the importance of renewable energies in Germany and describes the possibilities and future potentials for the future. The author describes the ways of utilizing renewable energies in a very comprehensive manner. He assesses the medium and long-term chances of renewable energies realistically from a neutral point of view, giving the readers a well-founded basis to build their own opinions about the subject. Thus the book makes a good contribution to rationalize the discussion on renewable energies which often is lead in an emotional way. The book covers following chapters: 1) Renewable energy sources in Germany 2) Basic data on renewable energies in Germany 3) Renewable energy source in building techniques 4) Power plant and thermal plant techniques of renewable energy sources 5) Evaluation methods for renewable energies in energy supply.

  4. Renewable energy sources in Germany, 1990 through 2007; Erneuerbare Energien in Deutschland 1990 bis 2007

    Boehme, Dieter; Duerrschmidt, Wolfhart (comps.)

    2009-11-15

    This brochure presents a picture of the rapid development of renewable energy sources in the years between 1990 and 2007. It shows the rapid growth and informs on the importance of renewable energy sources for climate protection. The new CDU/FDP government headed by Angela Merkel stressed its intention to develop the potential of renewable energy sources. Apart from the effect of higher energy efficiency, this will also help Germany to make an ambitious contribution to climate protection world-wide. Renewable energy sources are to provide the biggest share of power supply in the future. By 2020, the EEG (German Renewables Act) envisages at least a 30 percent share for renewable energy sources as an intermediate goal. In the field of heat supply, at least 14 percent are envisaged fro 2020. (orig./RHM)

  5. Interkulturelles Lernen während eines kurzzeitigen, studienbegleitenden Fremdsprachenprogramms. Erfahrungen australischer Studierender in Deutschland

    Rosalind Blood

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available Studienaufenthalte im Ausland werden im Zuge der Internationalisierung des Hochschulsystems von vielen australischen Universitäten gefördert. In dieser Studie werden die Wahrnehmungen von Austauschstudierenden untersucht, die sie während ihres kurzzeitigen Studienaufenthalts über die deutsche Sprache sowie über Umgangsformen, Sitten und Gebräuche im Gastland machen. Ziel der Studie ist eine Identifizierung von Faktoren, die interkulturelles Lernen erleichtern und deshalb von TutorInnen und Lehrenden bei der Vorbereitung auf ein Auslandsstudium berücksichtigt werden sollten. Zu diesem Zweck wurden mit zehn Studierenden, die an einem sechswöchigen Austauschprogramm in Stuttgart teilgenommen hatten, semi-strukturierte Interviews durchgeführt. Die Daten wurden mit der Methode der qualitativen Inhaltsanalyse untersucht, wobei deduktiv nach dem Modell der Entwicklung interkultureller Sensibilität von Bennett (1986 vorgegangen wurde. Die Ergebnisse unserer Studie weisen darauf hin, dass die Studierenden nur unzureichend in der Lage waren, interkulturelle Situationen zu reflektieren. Dies scheint mit der sprachlichen Kompetenz in der Fremdsprache (L2 und ihren bisherigen Erfahrungen auf Auslandsreisen zusammenzuhängen. Analysen des Mobilitätskapitals (Murphy-Lejeune 2003 könnten helfen, die Studierenden vor, während und nach dem Studienaufenthalt besser zu unterstützen. The support of ‘study abroad’ programs is part of an increasing effort made by Australian universities to internationalize the student experience. This study analyses student perceptions of colloquial language, manners and customs in the host country during a short-term study abroad program. The aim of the study is to identify the factors that influence intercultural learning and thus should be taken into account in order for administrators and instructors to best support students taking part in such short-term exchanges. Bennett’s model of the development of intercultural sensitivity (Bennett 1986 formed the basis for a qualitative content analysis of data obtained from semi-structured interviews with ten of the participants. The results of our study point to the students’ inadequacy when it comes to reflecting on intercultural situations. Analysis indicates that both the students’ proficiency in the target language (L2 and previous international travel influence their ability to reflect on their overseas experiences. Examining the influence of a student’s ‘mobility capital’ (Murphy-Lejeune 2003 on the exchange experience could shed light on how best to support students so that they can make the most of their stay.

  6. Job satisfaction of radiologists in Germany. Status quo; Berufszufriedenheit von Radiologen in Deutschland. Aktueller Stand

    2011-08-15

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to identify and evaluate the work-related satisfaction of radiologists and its influencing factors in Germany. Materials and Methods: For this purpose an invitational letter for an online opinion survey was sent to all member physicians of the Deutsche Roentgengesellschaft in 2008. 1200 questionnaires were completed (response rate 21 %) and evaluated statistically. Results: 81.7 % of radiologists declared themselves as being 'very' or 'rather satisfied'. The level of satisfaction was largely independent of age, gender, status, salary or family status. It increased over the last 5 years for 37.5 % of participants and decreased for 24.8 %. Nevertheless, 72 % of respondents indicated that they would not choose to specialize in radiology again. The main reason given was the workload. 65.6 % deemed it to be 'considerably' or 'rather too high'. Concomitantly, more than 70 % of respondents indicated that the workload had increased 'a lot' or 'rather'. Further reasons for not wanting to select the radiological profession again were 'unfavorable working hours' and 'unsatisfactory career perspectives'. Conclusion: The job satisfaction of radiologists in Germany is generally very high in spite of the perception of an extensive and frequently increasing workload. The high workload was the dominant factor against a renewed selection of the field of radiology. These data have to be interpreted in light of the current lack of residents and trained radiologists in Germany to counteract the trend toward emigration. (orig.)

  12. The future of nuclear power in Germany. Die Zukunft der Kernenergie in Deutschland

    Holzer, J [Bayernwerk AG, Muenchen (Germany)

    1993-07-01

    The future of nuclear power in Germany is not only a matter of technology, economy and ecology but, above all, a matter of political leadership, the quality of interaction of all groups of society, the need to take ideology out of politico-economico-technical matters, and of firmly standing up for a style of democracy in which majorities, not minorities, decide. The power economy is agreed that nuclear power is indispensable in a powerful electricity supply scheme. These should be the criteria to be met by an energy consensus: No nuclear plants should be sacrificed by being shut down before the end of their technical and economic service life; spent fuel and waste management in Germany should be secured with sufficient interim storage and repository storage capacities.

  14. Environmentally harmful subventions in the Federal Republic of Germany; Umweltschaedliche Subventionen in Deutschland

    Berg, Holger; Burger, Andreas; Thiele, Karen

    2008-07-01

    The quality of environmental goods such as climate, water, ground or air has a high value in the population. This also is reflected in the public and private expenditures for environmental protection. The state intervenes with subventions in the economical production process and in the individual decisions of the household consumer. The present practice of subvention does not promote a sustainable development to a large extent neither from ecological view nor from economic view. Under this aspect, the authors of the contribution under consideration report on the most important environmental harmful subventions within the ranges energy supply and energy utilization, traffic, building industry and housing, agriculture. Moreover an environmentally referred controlling of subvention is described in order to dismantle systematically environmentally harmful subventions and to a sustainable policy of subvention.

    Full Text Available Ground inhabiting spiders were investigated during the vegetation periods of , 1998 and 2000 in four pine forests of Brandenburg, Germany. 1995 three of them were managed in different ways and one area served as a control. In total 105 different species were found and the lowest number of species was found on the control area. Due to the management the pine forests got opened and xerophilous species could settle the areas. In total a heterogeneous species community was found on each area. From year to year high rates of species turnover were measured even for the dominant species (> 5 % of all collected individuals per area and year. Some endangered species in Brandenburg were collected as well.

    2010-03-15

    Wind power is growing and flourishing. After ten years marked by a rapid proliferation of wind power plants the industry expects to see a further substantial increase in installed capacity in the future. However, the growth of wind power has not been without repercussions in the energy economy; it has rather impacted on it in many ways, ranging from the technical side to economic and political aspects. How well can such repercussions be judged in advance? This article presents an analysis of historical scenarios and their accuracy, permitting a differentiated view on developments in the coming ten years. It shows that forecasts spanning several years or even decades carry a high degree of uncertainty.

    Germany participated in the Europen Heavy Metals in Mosses Surveys 1990, 1995 and 2000. The goal was to map the spatial distribution of the metal accumulation as a comparative measure for the metal deposition in terrestrial ecosystems. In the campaign in 2005, additionally nitrogen was monitored for the first time. It should be investigated how the monitoring network could be reduced from 1028 to 720 sites without any significant influence on chosen statistical criteria. Furthermore, the new network should be linked to other environmental monitoring programmes. (orig.)

    The festival lecture by Professor Toepfer, Federal Environment Minister, at the DELIWA main congress in September 1990 addresses all environmental problems. He particularly advocates continuity in environmental policy, expresses his intention to put an end to the mistaken practice of dividing work into production, sale and waste disposal and establish a cooperation with the rural economy for the protection of the groundwater, deals with the Law on Plant Protectants, the Law on Charges for the Emission of Liquid Waste into Surface Waters, the International Commission for the Protection of the Elbe from Pollution and calls for the establishment of a drinking water cadastre with the support of the associations. We now need better views over the environment in the GDR for what went wrong during the fourty years of 'real socialism' cannot be swept away in fourthy weeks in a social, ecologically oriented market economy. We must proceed according to priorities and they are determined by the burden on human health. (orig./HSCH).

  4. Progressive electricity tariffs for consumers in Germany?; Progressive Stromtarife fuer Verbraucher in Deutschland?

    Tews, Kerstin [Freie Univ. Berlin (Germany). Forschungszentrum fuer Umweltpolitik

    2011-10-15

    More than a quarter of electricity use in Germany is accounted for by private households. This market segment holds vast saving potentials which are not sufficiently made use of to date. If efficiency of electricity use is to serve as a bridge to an era of a nuclear-free power supply, the political realm must find ways of addressing the existing saving potentials more effectively. One possible instrument for creating incentives to save electricity on the demand side is seen in a system of progressive tariffs. How such a system would need to be designed in order to be compatible with the regime of a liberalised electricity market has yet to be investigated however.

  5. Trends in air quality in Germany. Background; Entwicklung der Luftqualitaet in Deutschland. Hintergrund

    NONE

    2009-10-15

    Air pollution has markedly decreased in the last 20 years. Through the introduction of filter and flue-gas denitrification systems in power plants and industrial installations; and the use of modern catalysts and fuels, considerably fewer pollutants are today released into the atmosphere. EU-wide air quality limit values for sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide, benzene and lead are no longer exceeded in Germany. On their way from the emission source (for example, flue or exhaust) to receptor (humans, flora and fauna), pollutant emissions are subject to atmospheric transport and mixing processes as well as chemical reaction. Pollutant concentration in the atmosphere (given, for example, in micrograms per cubic metre of air) can therefore not be directly deduced from the emitted pollutant quantity (given, for example, in tonnes per year). In principle, however, markedly reduced pollutant emissions give cause to expect that pollutant concentration in the atmosphere will also decrease. We observe, however, that since the beginning of this decade air pollution in Germany through particulates, nitrogen oxide and ozone, despite steadily reduced emissions, no longer shows a clear trend, but is subject rather to mainly interannual fluctuations. The limit values for particulates, which were laid down already in 1999 and are obligatory since 2005, are exceeded in many places in Germany. The same applies for limit values for nitrogen dioxide, which come into force in Germany on 1 January 2010. In urban areas - and, above all, in places affected by heavy traffic - air pollution with particulates and nitrogen dioxide is particularly high. Other than in the case of particulates and nitrogen dioxide, ozone pollution is highest in rural areas. For some years, a trend towards higher ozone concentrations has been noticeable in urban areas. In this booklet we describe trends in air pollution with particulates, nitrogen dioxide and ozone, and explain their connection to changes in air pollutant emissions. (orig.)

    A future energy policy equally has to pursue environmental protection and climate protection, economic efficiency as well as supply security. Renewable energies substantially contribute to this. In the last decade, the Federal Government of Germany showed that a strong development of renewable energies is possible within a short time. For the year 2020, the industry prognosticates an amount of the renewable energies of 47 % at the consumption of electricity, 25 % at the heat consumption, and 22 % at the fuel consumption in the traffic. The contribution under consideration shows that the surface which is needed for this is small. Depending upon climate, landscape, settlement structure and agrarian structure, each region offers its own different potentials.

The article proposes considering non-cash contributions a constitutive part of the Treaty of Versailles and investigating their impact on the post-World War I order. Contemporary debates on the supply of building materials to northern France illustrate the expectations on the German side that were raised by the promise of such deliveries in kind: Policymakers hoped that deliveries in kind would reduce the overall sum of reparations; smart entrepreneurs hoped for lucrative business, for instance from the sale of prefabricated houses; and trade unions saw new prospects for German workers and German building materials. Though deliveries in kind to the areas undergoing reconstruction in northern France were in practice small, the related debates disclose new perspectives on the post-war history. This example serves as a case in point for the potential of applying theoretical considerations about the social dimension of materiality to the context of the Treaty of Versailles and its consequences. Die Geschichtsschreibung der Reparationen nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg handelt bislang vor allem von Geld. Dieser Aufsatz plädiert dafür, auch die Sachlieferungen als einen wesentlichen Bestandteil des Versailler Vertrags zu interpretieren. Exemplarisch wird erprobt, wie sich theoretische Überlegungen zur sozialen Dimension von Dingen auf die Geschichte des Versailler Vertrags und seiner Folgen anwenden lassen. Anhand der zeitgenössischen Diskussionen über geplante Lieferungen von Baumaterial nach Nordfrankreich lässt sich nachvollziehen, dass man auf deutscher Seite mit diesen Reparationsleistungen durchaus Erwartungen verknüpfte: Aus Sicht der Politik sollten Sachlieferungen dazu beitragen, die Gesamtsumme der Reparationen zu mindern. Findige Unternehmen hofften schon 1919 auf einträgliche Geschäfte, etwa durch den Verkauf von Fertighäusern. Auch die Baugewerkschaften setzten auf neue Möglichkeiten für »deutsche Arbeiter und deutsches Material«. Selbst wenn die Lieferung in die Aufbaugebiete Nordfrankreichs in der Praxis begrenzt blieb, eröffnen die damit verbundenen Debatten neue Perspektiven auf die Geschichte des Nachkriegs.

  17. Nuclear energy. First experiences with decommissioning in Germany; Kernenergie. Erste Erfahrungen aus den Stilllegungen in Deutschland

    Sokoll, Joerg [Arthur D. Little, Frankfurt am Main (Germany). Energy/Utilities

    2015-05-15

    After the Fukushima disaster in 2011 the German parliament changed the national atomic energy law by way of its thirteenth amendment. In contrast to the initial ''nuclear phaseout'' the new phaseout of nuclear energy foresees a large number of decommissionings which will occur in part successively and in part simultaneously and will extend over a period of eleven years. Eight generating units were already decommissioned in 2011 or have not been ramped up again since then. By 2020 the last units will have been decommissioned and the phaseout of nuclear energy will have been completed, at least in terms of power plant operation. However the subsequent dismantling operations will keep German operators busy for decades to come. This article reports on first practical experiences in decommissioning.

  9. Development of an Internet based geothermal information system for Germany; Aufbau eines geothermischen Informationssystems fuer Deutschland

    Schulz, R.; Agemar, T.; Alten, J.A.; Kuehne, K.; Maul, A.A.; Pester, S.; Wirth, W. [Inst. fuer Geowissenschaftliche Gemeinschaftsaufgaben (GGA), Hannover (Germany)

    2007-02-15

    The Leibniz Institute for Applied Geosciences (GGA-Institut) is setting up an internet based information system on geothermal resources in close collaboration with partners. For a start, the geothermal information system will contain data about hydrogeothermal resources only. The project aims at an improvement of quality in the planning of geothermal plants and at a minimization of exploration risks. The key parameters for this purpose are production rate (Q) and temperature (T). The basis for the estimation of subsurface hydraulic properties comes from the information system on hydrocarbons. This information system provides permeability and porosity values derived from the analyses of drilling cores. The IT targets will be realised by a relational database providing all data relevant to the project. A 3D model of the ground provides the basis for visualisation and calculation of geothermal resources. As a prototype, a data-recall facility of geothermal sites in Germany is available online.

  14. The fuel cell in Germany: Future or utopia?; Die Brennstoffzelle in Deutschland. Zukunft oder Utopie?

    Taenzer, Guillem; Gross, Bodo [IZES gGmbH, Saarbruecken (Germany)

    2010-07-01

    What means a sustainable energy sector? The advancement of innovative technologies to decrease the dependency of fossil, dwindling fuels and the prevention of greenhouse gases? Sure. Is in Germany to this topic really volition of policy and economy? The answer should be: partly. Renewable Energies are in a continued increase due to the Renewable Energy Sources Act, the fuel cell is in contrast an ineffectual initiative, the hold on the nuclear industry is a return to the last century. Fuel cells are one of the technologies with the greatest potential: Whether for the home-supply, for industry- or mobile applications (e-mobility), fuel cells are perfect heat- and electricity plants, scalable for a large power range. In conjunction with the supply of pure- or chemical bounded hydrogen by renewable energies, fuel cells could be the plants of the future. Finally the technology must be controlled. This occurred constricted, there is (yet) no durability and cost effectiveness given. Here it is the challenge of the policy, the r and d and the industry respectively the manufacturers to develop this technology to marketability with the help of target-oriented research programs and subsidies or to fail.

  17. Deutschlands Baltikumpolitik – Zwischen europäischer Integration und Annäherung an Russland

    Helge Dauchert

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available Germany’s low-key approach towards Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania gave way to the suspicion that unified Germany had chosen to prioritise a Russia-oriented realpolitik over its traditional policy based on ethical norms. The following article rejects this interpretation. The underlying reason for Germany’s constant aloofness towards the Baltic states was its plan to create a peaceful and integrated post-Cold War Europe that led the German government into a predicament: Its role as an EU-integration deepener proofed to be incompatible with its role as an advocate of the eastern-enlargement of the EU. Further-more, its commitment towards a broad and functioning co-operation with Russia was opposed by the CEE-states. As a result, German politicians decided to adjourn EU- and NATO-enlargement and to reduce the number of applicants. For that reason Germany abstained from advocating the Baltic states’ integration into the Euro-Atlantic organisations.

  18. Environmental impacts of heating systems in Germany; Umweltwirkung von Heizungssystemen in Deutschland

    Bettgenhaeuser, Kjell; Boermans, Thomas [Ecofys Germany GmbH, Koeln (Germany)

    2011-02-15

    The aim of this study is a comprehensive analysis of current and innovative systems for the heating supply of residential buildings. This is based on a pre-defined supply-task - delivering heating energy, domestic hot water and ventilation for different building sizes and energy standards. The impact of a variation in the efficiency of the heating systems is been taken into account by also using a sensitivity-range of efficiencies/ COP's from field-tests. The main results are CO{sub 2}-emissions (incl. and excl. upstream chain) and primary/ end-energy demands as well as overall costs (investment- and running-costs) for the different heating systems, which are shown in overview graphs. The interpretation of the results analyses the impact of the sensitivities, gives technological limitations (i.e. with regard to the compatibility of technologies) and explains prominent effects (such as different profitabilities for same systems with a different supply-task) with regard to the aim of the study.

    Local actors, such as municipal authorities, can promote and shape the settlement of foreign companies in a particular manner. In many instances, actions of economic promotion can lead to several conflicts; firstly between foreign investors and their national representatives, and secondly with (supra)regional industries or business circles. Here, flexible and long-term settlement projects, the permission of migrant infrastructure, and moreover, their high-profile marketing may attract foreign companies and long-term investors.

  5. Der Begriff der Bildung in Deutschland. Zwischen Philosophie und Pädagogik

    Giancarla Sola

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available The article ‒ in its five paragraphs, respectively signed by Giancarla Sola, Andreas Dörpinghaus, Egbert Witte, Rita Casale, Jutta Breithausen ‒ represents an endeavor to reconstruct the concept of “Bildung” in Germany. It does this primarily by moving from the meaning that this word has acquired both in the history of Bildung and in the German and “Mittel”-European history. At this glance toward the past, but also threw in the future, as well as in the present, follows an interconnection of relations between Bildung, Empirie and Erfahrung. This last concept places the idea of “experience” in connection with its hermeneutic comprehension. Therefore, the article also thematizes the dialectical legacy of Hegel and Humboldt in the context of the history of German Philosophy and Pedagogy. Then, the article considers the metamorphosis of Bildung after Nationalsozialismus ‒ from 1945 onwards ‒, analyzing the social-economic and political-legal context through the use of a "critics" capable of digging in the relationship between Bildung and Kultur. The article does that focusing, in its final part, on the concept of Widerstreit ‒ "resistance" –, related to a Skepsis understood also as a possible interpretative category of modernity. Thus, the article, in its overall unity, sizing its axial figure ‒ centered on the cultures of Bildung ‒ placing it on the intersecting planes represented by Philosophy and Pedagogy.

  8. Research in the Federal Republic of Germany. Forschung in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Beispiele, Kritik, Vorschlaege

    Schneider, C.

    1983-01-01

    This book is about research and, consequently, researchers. It shows the kinds of questions they ask themselves, how they solve them and how they use the results. A great deal of discussion is going on about research in the Federal Republic of Germany: the aims, the promotion measures, the quality of research by international standards and the yield in proportion to the expenditure. Are we doing enough research. What inner and outer conditions will best ensure the prosperity of research. This book is a plausible attempt to provide the discussion with a solid basis: in it scientists report their experiences, presenting, in a manner of speaking, a piece of their scientific autobiography, because that is most likely to throw a light on the multifariousness, complexity and, often enough, unpredictability of events, influences, thoughts and motives which finally bring about their scientific achievement in the form of results and effects. This book has the merit of giving a voice to men of the arts and of the sciences and to the engineering community as well. Successful research, today, always carries an aspect of associating diverging scientific domains. Yet it does not try to give a comprehensive view of research in the Federal Republic of Germany, but limits itself instead to examples. Each of them is illustrative in a particular way. In their totality, they convey a unique picture of the scientific culture of the present.

  19. Nuclear power and the logic of globalization; Politisierung der Wirtschaft, Rueckfall in den alten Nationalstaat

    Weizsaecker, C.C. von [Koeln Univ. (Germany). Energiewirtschaftliches Inst.

    2000-02-01

    The article discusses effects and results of globalization for nuclear power and other options of electricity generation. According to the present state of knowledge, it will not be possible to meet the growing worldwide energy requirement with fossil and renewable energy sources only - also because of the CO{sub 2} problem. Consequently, nuclear power will remain an important alternative. On an international scale, this applies in particular to large countries, such as China and India, as large national economies particularly benefit from the economies of scale offered by nuclear power. This could well make Chinese nuclear technology a product for the world market. Thinking along these lines has not really gained ground in Germany, as nuclear power, being a technology requiring considerably capital outlay, is considered unsuitable for southern countries. It is an illusion to believe that Germany's opting out of the use of nuclear power could be a model to others. Instead, we are faced by the ethical question of how we can help to minimize the accident risks of nuclear facilities worldwide. We can do so only by maintaining the use of nuclear power and exporting our level of safety, for the risks will not become any smaller merely as a result of our opting out. (orig.) [German] Der Artikel diskutiert Effekte und Resultate der Globalisierung in Bezug auf die Kernenergie und andere Stromerzeugungs-Alternativen. Nach heutigem Kenntnisstand wird es nicht moeglich sein, den weltweit wachsenden Energiebedarf ausschliesslich mit fossilen und regenerativen Energietraegern zu decken - auch wegen der CO{sub 2}-Problematik. Die Kernenergie wird daher eine wichtige Alternative bleiben. Im internationalen Kontext sind vor allem grosse Laender wie China und Indien relevant, da in grossen Volkswirtschaften die Groessenvorteile der Kernenergie (economies of scale) besonders stark durchschlagen. Chinesische Kerntechnik koennte dann ein Weltmarktprodukt werden. Dieser

    In a two year research project the long-term storage of hydrogen as energy carrier has been assessed in detail for large renewable electricity quantities in underground storage caverns in Germany. Next to a regions analysis for potential storage sites, the benchmarking against other large scale storage concepts, a comparative and perspective analysis of alkaline and PEM-electrolysers also potential business cases for Power-to-Hydrogen in the mobility sector as well as for the chemical, electricity and natural gas industry have been analysed. [German] Durch den geplanten Ausbau der Stromerzeugung aus fluktuierenden, erneuerbaren Energien in Deutschland ruecken Speichertechnologien fuer elektrische Energie immer staerker in den Fokus des industriellen und politischen Interesses. Eine vielversprechende Moeglichkeit fuer eine Langzeitspeicherung bei hohen Anteilen von Wind- und Photovoltaikanlagen sind Speichertechnologien wie die Wasserstoffspeicherung mit Hilfe von Wasserelektrolyseuren. Diese koennen erneuerbaren Strom in grossen Mengen und bei entsprechender Steuerung selektiv in Zeiten mit hohem Dargebot z.B. an Windstrom chemisch speichern. Der gespeicherte Wasserstoff kann dann entweder zu einem spaeteren Zeitpunkt wieder rueckverstromt oder direkt stofflich verwertet werden, z.B. als Kraftstoff fuer den Verkehrssektor, als chemischer Rohstoff oder fuer den Hausenergiebereich durch Einspeisung in das Erdgastransportnetz.

    The German and European power supply systems face extensive changes. With the energy policy decisions made in 2010 and 2011 Germany has set itself the goal of comprehensively reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of electricity production by the middle of this century, of shifting its basis largely to renewable energies and of phasing out the use of nuclear energy by 2022. Alongside the phase-out of over 20,000 megawatts of electricity capacity from nuclear power plants, more than 10,000 megawatts of capacity from incumbent power plants are at acute risk of decommissioning. In addition the building of approx. 5,000 mega-watts of new power plant capacity up to 2020 and at least an additional 10,000 mega-watts up to 2030 has to be ensured to flank the planned expansion of renewable energies with residual load power plants which guarantee security of supply. Germany's network is part of the interconnected Continental European power system, but a closer analysis shows that power plant capacities from abroad cannot make a significant contribution to guaranteeing security of supply in Germany in the medium term. A capacity market instrument primarily serves to guarantee security of supply; yet objectives such as maintaining competition intensity, minimising costs for electricity con-sumers and meeting at least Germany's climate policy targets also have to be taken into account. In addition a contribution has to be made to transforming the power supply system; the building of new, very flexible and low emission power plants which complement the fluctuating electricity production from wind and solar energy is essential for technical and economic reasons. In view of these criteria and the problems of the capacity market models put forward to date (strategic reserve, a comprehensive capacity market), the concept of the ''focused capacity market'' is being developed. This design option for a capacity market consists of two different segments, for which separate auctions are carried out and in which different power plants as well as measures for flexibilising electricity demand and stor-age can participate. In the ''incumbent power plants'' market segment, power plants at risk of decommissioning compete with dispatchable load (demand response) for capacity payments for one or four years. In the ''new power plants'' market segment, power plants which fulfil high flexibility demands and environmental requirements and new electricity storage compete for capacity payments over 15 years. The capacity payments of different duration increase planning security for investors and plant operators while decreasing risk premiums and thus the costs for electricity consumers. The distinction between the two segments makes it possible to tailor capacity payments to useful time periods, enables the productive incorporation of controllable loads and storage, and extensively avoids free-rider effects. The rigorously competitive setup of the tendering procedure generates high competition pressure and ensures low prices. The possibility that the successful bidders in the capacity auctions are regular participants in the electricity and energy market maintains the competition intensity in the power market, at least partly avoids erratic scarcity prices and the corresponding burden for the customers, and facilitates the expansion of a highly flexible power plant segment, which is urgently needed in the future to complement the fluctuating renewable production from wind and solar energy. In addition there is the possibility of integrating regional aspects, in particular investments in new power plants, and thereby also contributing to easing the burden on the network. The costs which are substantially curbed for the reasons mentioned are refinanced via the network use charges on the transmission network level. By definition the system ensures a high level of security of supply. By implementing the system with call options, with which the tenderer can partially skim off the revenues of the successful bidders in the case of very high electricity prices, the power plants enjoying receipt of capacity payments are prevented from exercising market power and the costs are reduced for electricity consumers. For the technical implementation of the focused capacity market a range of procedures (registration of the plants, identification of quantitative targets in a consultation procedure, auctioning, monitoring compliance, etc.) are necessary. However, these implementation measures also apply to a similar extent in the case of all other options and remain within limits. Focusing the capacity market on the two segments of ''incumbent power plants'' and ''new power plants'' also enables easy adaptation and implementation as a learning system. A focused capacity market for Germany could be introduced comparably quickly. If the regulations enter into force within the course of 2014 and the substatutory and other regulations are introduced by 2015, the first auctions for power plant capacities could take place in 2015/2016. From 2017 onwards the first incumbent power plants and demand-side measures would be remunerated and ensured by capacity payments. From 2019/2020 the first new power plants could enter operation and the last two stages of the phase-out of nuclear energy (2021/2022) thereby substantially flanked. The focused capacity market constitutes a pragmatic and, compared to the models of a comprehensive capacity market and a strategic reserve discussed up to now, a very advantageous instrument for tackling the current and foreseeable challenges with regard to security of supply. At the same time a focused capacity market can make a substantial contribution to flanking the transformation of the energy system to one based on renewable energies and maintaining a high intensity of competition in the electricity market while substantially limiting the costs for electricity consumers.

  2. Energy Transition-Index Germany. Costs are increasing steadily; Energiewende-Index Deutschland. Die Kosten steigen weiter

    How expensive the energy transition truly will be? The question of costs is coming more and more into the focus: The Bundesrechnungshof calls for more transparency, the policy confronted with the complexity of the subject matter is not able to quantify concrete costs. At the same time, all participants are working to curb spending growth. The fact is, the total costs will continue to rise. It is already foreseeable that by 2025 the annual electricity costs will increase by Euro 14 billion - to then Euro 77 billion. The main drivers are grid charges and rising fuel costs. [German] Wie teuer wird die Energiewende wirklich? Die Frage nach den Kosten geraet zunehmend in den Fokus: Der Bundesrechnungshof fordert mehr Transparenz, die Politik sieht sich mit Blick auf die Komplexitaet der Thematik ausserstande, konkrete Kosten zu beziffern. Gleichzeitig treten alle Beteiligten dafuer ein, die Ausgabenentwicklung zu bremsen. Fakt ist: Die Gesamtkosten werden weiter steigen. Bereits heute ist absehbar, dass sich bis 2025 die jaehrlich anfallenden Stromkosten um 14 Mrd. Euro erhoehen werden - auf dann 77 Mrd. Euro. Haupttreiber sind die Netzentgelte und steigende Brennstoffkosten.

    Full Text Available Einige Monate nach dem Umstieg auf das neue Regelwerk "Resource Description and Access" (RDA wurden an 18 großen deutschen wissenschaftlichen Universalbibliotheken Fokusgruppengespräche mit Katalogisierererinnen und Katalogisierern durchgeführt. Die Katalogisierenden wurden u.a. befragt, wie sicher sie sich bei der Anwendung von RDA fühlen, was sie am neuen Regelwerk gut oder schlecht finden, wie sie den Aufwand im Vergleich zum früheren Regelwerk RAK einschätzen, welche Informations- und Hilfsmittel sie verwenden und wie sie zu den regelmäßigen Änderungen im Standard stehen. Der vorliegende Aufsatz dokumentiert die Ergebnisse der Gespräche.   Several months after the introduction of the new cataloging standard "Resource Description and Access" (RDA, focus-group interviews with catalogers were conducted at 18 large academic and state libraries in Germany. Among other things, the catalogers were asked how confident they feel in applying RDA, which aspects of the new cataloging code they like or do not like, how they estimate the expenditure of time in comparison to the former cataloging code RAK, which sources they use to get help or information, and what they think about the frequent changes to the new standard. The paper presents the results of these interviews.

  4. Qualifizierung für "Industrie 4.0". Facharbeit in Deutschland und deutschen Auslandsniederlassungen in Emerging Economies

    Fuchs, Martina; Pilz, Matthias; Wiemann, Judith; Wiemann, Kristina

    2017-06-01

    Frey and Osbourne's (2013) notion of the end of professional technical skills caused by Industry 4.0 (smart manufacturing), also known as increasing polarisation into "lousy and lovely jobs", is a topical issue. This contribution is a critical review of this idea in the context of German multinational companies, many of which are intensifying their efforts to introduce international customer-oriented quality production, digital high-tech and new human-machine-interfaces. Such high-tech production requires that the companies further internationalise practices of the German technical vocational education and training to emerging economies as Mexico, India and China. For German multinational companies this rather suggests an increase in professional technical skills (also on an international level) and less so rationalisation potentials in this particular segment of production work.

  5. Electricity market liberalisation in Germany - has it been a flop?; War die Strommarkt-Liberalisierung in Deutschland bisher ein Flop?

    Erdmann, G. [Energy Systems, Berlin Univ. of Tech. (Germany)

    2008-09-15

    By observing the last 10 years of power market reform in Germany, this paper challenges the public view that the first Energiewirtschaftsgesetz (EnWG) from 1998 had less impact on market liberalization than the second EnWG from 2005. According to the author, the opposite is true, at least in the power sector, if traditional competition indicators such as efficiency of the sector, institutional changes and electricity prices are taken as reference. While the first EnWG had changed much in the direction of liberalization and competition, progress since 2005 is rather slow - with the exception of the number of supplier shifts on the retail level and the installation of a regulation authority. The discrepancies between reality and public perception claim for a sound theoretical analysis, from which conclusions can be drawn concerning the further direction of the electricity market regulation.

    The 1999/2000 issue of the annual evaluations of the scientific measurement and evaluation programme (WMEP) is the tenth regular publication of operational results from the wind turbines included in the ''250 MW Wind'' funding programme. Besides depicting the current state of the technology, a reflection on the long-term and successful development of this still young technology is offered. With the approval of a fourth project phase (2000 - 2004) it has been ensured that, also in coming years, particular attention can be paid to long-term behaviour in regard to reliability, life span and operational costs. (orig.) [German] Die vorliegende Jahresauswertung 1999/2000 des ''wissenschaftlichen mess- und evaluierungsprogramms'' (WMEP) stellt bereits die zehnte Ausgabe der regelmaessigen Veroeffentlichung von Betriebsergebnissen der Windenergieanlagen im Foerderprogramm ''250 MW Wind'' dar. Sie bietet damit neben der Darstellung des aktuellen Stands der Technik auch einen Rueckblick auf die langjaehrige und erfolgreiche Entwicklung dieser noch jungen Technologie. Mit dem Auftrag einer vierten Projektphase (zunaechst 2000 bis 2002) ist sichergestellt, dass auch in den kommenden Jahren besonders auf das Langzeitverhalten hinsichtlich Zuverlaessigkeit, Lebensdauer und Betriebskosten eingegangen werden kann.

  7. Acceptance of nuclear power in Germany: A long-term perspective; Die Akzeptanz der Kernenergie in Deutschland in laengerfristiger Perspektive

    Schulz, R.

    2006-10-15

    20 years ago, in July 1986, a few months after the Chernobyl accident, the renowned nuclear physicist Heinz Maier-Leibnitz published his book 'Lernschock Tschernobyl', in which he attempted a rational assessment of the risk involved in the utilisation of nuclear energy. He conceded that decisions made by government and industry are never purely rational and thus cannot be justified purely on rational grounds. In a democracy, the will and emotions of the people must be taken into account as well. In the case of atomic power, Heinz Maier-Leibniz viewed these emotions as 'fear of unknown, invisible radiation and fear of serious if rare accidents'. (orig.)

    During the last years energy consumption in Germany showed stagnation. To cover this energy demand renewable energies are of growing importance. In 2007 the dominating consumer sectors were traffic, industry and private households, each with a share between 25 and 30 % of the final energy demand while the portion of the sector services was only about 15 %. With regard to energy application the provision of mechanical energy (42 %) was first, followed by process heat (28 %) and space heat (26 %). Only small shares were required for the energy demand of lighting and information and communication applications. A total of 30% of the required primary energy could be accounted for useful energy.

    In the last years energy as a subject has got more into the focus of public perception. A reason therefore is the price development of energy carriers alongside with the discussion of energy related greenhouse gas emissions. Since early 2006, the price of crude oil has increased steadily from around 60 US dollars a barrel to more than 100 US dollars a barrel at the beginning of 2008. Partially final energies got significantly more expensive for the consumer. (orig.)

    Does the energy transition keep what it once promised? Five years after the first index survey, the balance sheet is mixed: While key objectives such as the reduction of CO{sub 2} emissions are not achieved, important new tasks are lacking in target marks - such as the decarbonisation of the heating and transport sector or the interplay of central and decentralized supply. The energy transition index addresses these future topics with new indicators and calculation bases. Now it is up to the next federal government to set the right course so that the energy transition becomes a success story. The formulation of less, consistent and clear goals rank first. [German] Haelt die Energiewende, was sie einst versprochen hat? Fuenf Jahre nach der ersten Index-Erhebung faellt die Bilanz gemischt aus: Waehrend zentrale Ziele wie die Reduktion der CO{sub 2}-Emissionen nicht erreicht werden, fehlt es fuer wichtige neue Aufgaben an verbindlichen Zielmarken - etwa zur Dekarbonisierung des Waerme- und Verkehrssektors oder zum Zusammenspiel von zentraler und dezentraler Versorgung. Der Energiewende-Index adressiert diese Zukunftsthemen mit neuen Indikatoren und Berechnungsgrundlagen. Jetzt ist es an der kommenden Bundesregierung, die richtigen Weichen zu stellen, damit die Energiewende zur Erfolgsgeschichte wird. Die Formulierung weniger, konsistenter und klarer Ziele steht dabei an erster Stelle.

    With its ''National Electromobility Development Plan'', the German government intends to build up domestic know-how on the development and production of high-voltage batteries. The current research phase of science, industry, and policy already indicates the assignment of future roles. The strong competition of Asian producers will be faced with German core competences and development potentials, according to Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, head of the CAR Center Automitive Research, an institute that compares supply structures worldwide. The analysis shows that while many manufacturers are strong in their own country, they cannot survive without international joint venture partners. (orig.)

    2011-08-15

    Mobility is a key element in our society and often synonymous with traffic. It is desirable to secure a clean and diversified energy supply, to design a more sustainable transport structure and to minimize the burden on people and environment. This requires an updating of the fuel strategy 2004 and its progress toward a comprehensive mobility strategy and fuel strategy. Under this aspect, the contribution under consideration presents a preliminary investigation of the development of a mobility strategy and fuel strategy in Germany. Over the past ten years, the transport sector has reduced its energy consumption only slightly. The targets for the energy reduction now are -10 % up to 2020 and -40 % up to 2050. The transport sector challenges a significant contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to advance the necessary energy political as well as climate political changes the Federal Government wants to develop a comprehensive mobility strategy and fuel strategy. For this purpose, the contribution under consideration provides nine concrete recommendations for action for this.

    After the last years had seen the lowest level of exploration activities, the year 2001 marked a distinct increase of exploration activities. This became quite visible in the number of completed exploration wells and in the extent of seismic surveys. Two of four new-field wildcats were completed in 2001, however without success. One of the three additional exploration wells (new-pool test and new-tectonic block) found gas. In production drilling nine of twelve wells were successful. Footage increased by near 25% compared to the preceding year and amounted to 54 030 metres. Seen in the light of history since 1945, this value marks the last but one rank compared to the last rank of the previous year. The rise of footage was achieved exclusively by exploration drilling. Footage of production drilling was slightly down. In geophysical prospecting the activities in 3D seismics reached the same level as in times of maximum seismic activities. The total area of 2400 square kilometres even exceeded the previous maximum. The main contribution was delivered by only one offshore survey in the German North Sea. 2D seismic was rather low and amounted to 450 kilometres in total. The license area for oil and gas exploration was reduced even further. As in previous years several expired licences were not extended and in some cases parts of the licence areas were relinquished. One licence around the city of Bremen was newly awarded. Two licences were awarded due to reorganisation of licence areas respectively due to adaptation to frontiers. In the state of Nordrhein-Westfalen three smaller licence areas were newly awarded aiming at producing gas from abandoned coal mines. German oil production could increase to 3.44 million metric tons due to the increase in production from the oil field Mittelplate to 1.6 million tons. In all other fields oil production decreased because of normal decline in production. Total remaining proven and probable oil reserves are reduced by 3 million tons to 46.8 million tons. Contrary to the trend of the last years the total remaining proven and probable natural gas reserves (raw gas) dropped by 34.4 billion cubic metres to 342.9 billion cubic metres due to production and the reassessment of existing fields. Reserve figures were 9% below the value of the preceding year. The gas production amounted to 21.5 billion cubic metres and equals the previous year value. The growth in underground gas storage continued. As in the preceding year 23 gas storage facilities in porous rocks and 19 gas storage facilities in salt caverns were in operation. The working gas volume increased by 0.5 billion cubic metres to 19.1 billion cubic metres. At present it is planned to raise the working gas volume by 4.4 billion cubic metres by building new storage facilities respectively by extension of existing facilities. (orig.)

    In 1997, exploration for oil and gas in onshore Germany further slowed down compared to the previous years. Both the number of exploration wells and the geophysical activity (seismic and gravimetric field surveys) decreased. In contrast, extensive seismic measurements were conducted in the German sector of the North Sea. Oil production amounted to 2.82x10{sup 6} t which is approximately the same level as in 1996. Due to the mild winter, gas production slightly decreased to 22.5x10{sup 9} m{sup 3} (raw gas). Underground gas storage in depleted oil or gas fields, in aquifer structures and salt caverns continued to play a very important role in Germany. The total working gas capacity of the 38 existing storage plants increased by 1.3x10{sup 9} m{sup 3} to 15.4x10{sup 9} m{sup 3}. An additional capacity of 7.1x10{sup 9} m{sup 3} is under construction or in the planning stage. (orig./MSK) [Deutsch] Im Jahre 1997 ist die Aufsuchungstaetigkeit nach Erdgas und Erdoel auf dem deutschen Festland gemessen an der Anzahl der Explorationsbohrungen und dem Umfang der geophysikalischen Feldmessungen (Seismik, Gravimetrie) dem Trend des Vorjahres folgend zurueckgegangen. Demgegenueber standen umfangreiche seismische Untersuchungen in der Nordsee. Die Erdoelfoerderung hat sich mit 2,82 Mio. t ungefaehr auf dem Niveau des Vorjahres gehalten. Die Erdgasfoerderung hat gegenueber 1996 witterungsbedingt geringfuegig abgenommen und betrug 22,5 Mrd. m{sup 3}(V{sub n})/a (natuerlicher Brennwert). Auf dem Sektor der Untertage-Erdgasspeicher (ehem. Lagerstaetten, Aquifere und Salzkavernen) setzte sich auch im Jahre 1997 der Wachstumstrend fort. Gegenueber dem Vorjahr stieg das Arbeitsgasvolumen in 23 Porenspeicher- und 15 Kavernenspeicher-Betrieben um etwa 1,3 Mrd. m{sup 3}(V{sub n}) auf 15,4 Mrd. m{sup 3}(V{sub n}) an. Weitere ca. 7,1 Mrd. m{sup 3}(V{sub n}) Arbeitsgas sind in neuen Projekten oder durch Erweiterung bestehender Projekte in Planung und Bau. (orig./MSK)

    2012-12-15

    The decision to raise the levy imposed by the Renewable Energies Law has kindled the discussion as to how the energy turnaround can best be implemented and made affordable in the first place. The search for solutions should be founded on as full a picture of the situation as possible as well as a fact base shared by all. The aspiration and purpose of the German 2020 Energy Turnaround Index created by McKinsey and Company is to create precisely such a fact base. Every 3 months the index gives an update on the status of the energy turnaround based on 15 indicators. The present update additionally takes a closer look at the aspect of economic efficiency, which together with climate and environment protection and security of supply forms the triad of imperatives driving the energy turnaround.

  20. Biodiesel production and marketing in Germany. The situation and perspective; Biodieselproduktion und Vermarktung in Deutschland. Situation und Perspektive

    Bockey, D.

    2002-07-01

    Out of all the renewable raw material products, Biodiesel is by far the most important for German agriculture. Now after 12 years of intensive product assessment by UFOP and its member federations, Biodiesel made from rapeseed oil is beginning to establish itself as a technically developed alternative in the fuel market. For the practical use of alternative fuels practically only pure Biodiesel fulfills the set requirements. While the UFOP essentially financed and carried out public relations and sales promotion measures etc., the vehicle industry and Biodiesel manufacturers developed the technical and normative prerequisites for lasting market entry for rapeseed oil methyl esters. This could not have been done without financial support from the federal state governments, the Federal Government and the European Union.

  2. Consumption and recovery of packaging waste in Germany in 2008; Aufkommen und Verwertung von Verpackungsabfaellen in Deutschland im Jahr 2008

    Schueler, Kurt [Gesellschaft fuer Verpackungsmarktforschung mbH, Mainz (Germany)

    2010-12-15

    Pursuant to EU Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste dated 20.12.1994 in connection with Directive 2004/12/EC, EU Member States are obliged to report annually on the consumption and recovery of packaging. This report shall be prepared on the basis of the Commission's decision of 22.03.2005 on establishing mandatory table formats (2005/270/EC). The study determines the quantity of packaging (packaging consumption) for the material groups of glass, plastics, paper, aluminium, tin plate, composites, other steel, wood and other packaging materials placed on the market in Germany. In addition to the quantity of packaging used in Germany, filled exports and imports were also ascertained in order to calculate the consumption rate. The quantity of packaging waste of waste relevance in Germany was calculated on the basis of the quantity of packaging placed on the market as e.g. reusable and durable packaging will only be discarded at some point in the future. All existing data from associations, the waste disposal industry and environmental statistics were compiled and documented systematically in order to determine the recovery quantities and recovery paths. The quantities incinerated at waste incineration plants with energy recovery could only be calculated as the difference between the total quantity to be discarded and quantities actually recovered. In 2008, 16.04 million tons of packaging were consumed and became waste. Compared to the reference year 2005, packaging consumption increased by 3.7 % (minus 0.4 % compared to 2007). A total of 13.10 million tons was recovered in terms of material or energy, of which a total of 2.41 million tons outside Germany. In addition, 1.40 million tons of imported packaging waste were recovered in Germany. In 2008, 2.10 million tons were incinerated at waste incineration plants with energy recovery. (orig.)

    With its ''National Electromobility Development Plan'', the German government intends to build up domestic know-how on the development and production of high-voltage batteries. The current research phase of science, industry, and policy already indicates the assignment of future roles. The strong competition of Asian producers will be faced with German core competences and development potentials, according to Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, head of the CAR Center Automitive Research, an institute that compares supply structures worldwide. The analysis shows that while many manufacturers are strong in their own country, they cannot survive without international joint venture partners. (orig.)

  5. Demographic determinants of energy demand of households in Germany; Demografische Determinanten der Energienachfrage der Haushalte in Deutschland

    Engel, Kerstin

    2010-05-28

    This thesis investigates in demographic determinants of energy demand of households in Germany, with focus on space heating and individual motor car traffic. Result of this thesis is a simulation model based on the approach of system dynamics, which is used to simulate two scenarios. The first scenario, called the reference scenario, is based on demographic data of the next decades, which is assumed to be realistic. The second alternative scenario runs without the probable demographic changes. By comparing the scenarios the role of demography in the range of energy demand is quantified. (orig.)

    2012-11-01

    In order to provide the industrial structures that are necessary for ecologically and economically effective waste management and recycling - from the collecting of valuable waste materials to the marketing of the secondary raw materials obtained -, the BDE (Bundesverband der Deutschen Entsorgungswirtschaft e.V., Federal Association of the German Waste Management Industry) considers that free movement of goods must be ensured in the whole European Union. This means Europe-wide prohibition of dumping of untreated waste, common European environmental standards and their enforcement. If the potential of waste materials is to be developed in Europe, politicians must develop consequent understanding of waste as a raw material and commodity. Europe needs open frontiers and free trade in this important sector. (orig.) [German] Um die fuer eine oekologisch und oekonomisch effektive Kreislaufwirtschaft zwingend erforderlichen industriellen Strukturen - von der Sammlung werthaltiger Abfaelle bis hin zur Vermarktung der gewonnenen Sekundaerrohstoffe - zu schaffen, muss aus Sicht des BDE fuer alle Abfallstroeme der Grundsatz der Warenverkehrsfreiheit im gesamten Bereich der Europaeischen Union gelten. Voraussetzungen dafuer sind ein europaweites Deponieverbot fuer unbehandelte Abfaelle, europaweit einheitliche Umweltstandards und ein einheitlicher Vollzug. Wenn wir tatsaechlich das Potenzial, das im europaeischen Abfallberg steckt, heben wollen, muss auch die Politik ein konsequentes Verstaendnis fuer die Ressource Abfall als Ware entwickeln. Wir brauchen in Europa fuer diesen wichtigen Stoffstrom offene Grenzen und freien Handel. (orig.)

  7. Wind energy use in Germany. Status 31.12.2012; Windenergienutzung in Deutschland. Stand 31.12.2012

    Ender, C. [DEWI GmbH, Wilhelmshaven (Germany)

    2013-02-15

    2012 has been a good year for the development of wind energy world-wide and also for Germany. All in all, the global installed wind power capacity in 2012 was 44,712 MW, which is an increase of 8.4 % compared to last year's figures (Tab. 1). Of the new installations, about 59 per cent were realized in China (13.2 GW) and the USA (13.1 GW), followed by Germany and India. It is interesting to note that for the first time Romania has made it among the TOP 10 countries in 2012. With 923 MW new installed capacity the country achieved the tenth position. [1] The positive market development for Germany was already foreseeable when evaluating the figures for the first six months of 2012, and it was confirmed at the end of the year. Based on the average share of the first half year in the annual result over the last five years, new installations of up to 2,350 MW could be expected. The final installation figures of 2,440 MW even exceeded the forecast. This result is the fourth best in the history of the DEWI-Statistics, only beaten by the installations of the record years 2001 to 2003. The good result is probably partly due to projects promoted because of the Energiewende, but also to repowering projects which are contributing an increasing share in the wind energy development. Older wind turbines from the 1990s have now reached an age where replacement may be considered. This applies especially to turbines that were erected after 1998 and are located in wind priority areas. In concrete figures, according to information supplied by wind turbine manufacturers1 altogether 1,003 new wind turbines (WTGS) with 2,439.66 megawatt (MW) were installed in Germany in 2012 (Fig. 1). This means an increase of 21.5 % compared to the year before. As already mentioned, repowering projects have made a significant contribution to the development. Their share in the new installations is approx. 22 %, plus the use of repowering bonus certificates for 117 dismantled wind turbines. Apart from the onshore installations, there has also been some development offshore. 21 wind turbines were installed in the wind farm ''BARD Offshore 1'' which brings the total installed offshore capacity to 320 MW, of which 280 MW have been connected to the grid. Fig. 1 gives a compact overview of the figures for 2012, showing among others the new installations, repowering figures and offshore installation figures. Fig. 2 shows the development of wind energy in Germany during the last years and also includes the cumulative values in addition to the new installations added each year, as well as the offshore capacity of wind turbines installed but not yet connected to the grid. Altogether, as per 31.12.2012, a total of 22,962 wind turbines with a capacity of 31,315 MW have been installed in Germany. (orig.)

  8. Germany's energy turnaround. A joint venture for the future; Deutschlands Energiewende. Ein Gemeinschaftswerk fuer die Zukunft

    NONE

    2011-05-30

    The Ethics Committee is sure that nuclear phaseout will be possible within a decade with the energy turnaround measures presented here. Nuclear phaseout is considered necessary and is recommended with the intention to prevent the risk of nuclear power in Germany and to use less risky technologies. The competitive standing of the German industry should not be affected. Science and research, new technologies and the readiness of German industrial organizations to develop new business models for a sustainable economy provides Germany with alternatives, i.e. wind power, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, efficient energy use and higher energy efficiency, as well as fossil fuels used with low emissions of climate-relevant gases. Further, a changed human lifestyle with more respect of nature will help to save energy. In the first stage of nuclear phaseout, nuclear power plants will be shut down and decommissioned. Of course, the Ethics Committee is aware that after this stage, there will be long years of intensive work of shielding, saveguarding and finally dismantling.

    Pursuant to EU Directive 94/62/EC on packaging and packaging waste dated 20.12.1994 in connection with Directive 2004/12/EC, EU Member States are obliged to report annually on the consumption and recovery of packaging. This report shall be prepared on the basis of the Commission's decision of 22.03.2005 on establishing mandatory table formats (2005/270/EC). The study determines the quantity of packaging (packaging consumption) for the material groups of glass, plastics, paper, aluminium, tin plate, composites, other steel, wood and other packaging materials placed on the market in Germany. In addition to the quantity of packaging used in Germany, filled exports and imports were also ascertained in order to calculate the consumption rate. The quantity of packaging waste of waste relevance in Germany was calculated on the basis of the quantity of packaging placed on the market as e.g. reusable and durable packaging will only be discarded at some point in the future. All existing data from associations, the waste disposal industry and environmental statistics were compiled and documented systematically in order to determine the recovery quantities and recovery paths. The quantities incinerated at waste incineration plants with energy recovery could only be calculated as the difference between the total quantity to be discarded and quantities actually recovered. In 2008, 15.05 million tons of packaging were consumed and became waste. Compared to the reference year 2008, packaging consumption decreased by 6.2 %. A total of 12.73 million tons was recovered in terms of material or energy, of which a total of 2.45 million tons outside Germany. In addition, 1.42 million tons of imported packaging waste were recovered in Germany. In 2009, 1.55 million tons were incinerated at waste incineration plants with energy recovery.

  12. Consequences for a completely decarbonised energy supply for Germany; Konsequenzen fuer eine vollstaendig dekarbonisierte Energieversorgung fuer Deutschland

    Wagner, Friedrich [Max-Planck-Institut fuer Plasmaphysik, Greifswald (Germany). Teilinst. Greifswald

    2017-12-15

    This paper examines the consequences of the transformation of Germany's energy supply into electricity from wind power and photovoltaics. The consequences result from the two most important properties - low energy density and volatile production. The analysis is carried out by extrapolating real production data from the period 2010 to 2016, with the first step focusing on the technology change for pure electricity production, and the second on the presentation of the total final energy within the framework of so-called sector coupling. The main results are that renewable energies alone do not allow a strongly reduced final energy consumption to be achieved and that storage facilities have a low system relevance. The recommendation of this work is that Germany should develop and implement a further CO{sub 2}-free supply.

  13. Successful cleaning concept for Germany's biggest reverse osmosis plant; Ein erfolgreiches Reinigungskonzept fuer die groesste Umkehrosmoseanlage Deutschlands

    Kempen, Hermann [Kurita Europe GmbH, Viersen (Germany); Zierau, Ronald [Zellstoff-Stendal GmbH, Arneburg (Germany)

    2012-07-01

    During the last years, new developments for membrane material and also for treatment chemicals have resulted in higher efficiency and reliability of reverse osmosis (RO) plants. Nevertheless, especially RO plants receiving raw water from surface waters with open intake or from waste water streams are facing problems with fouling on membranes during operation. In such cases, the efficient cleaning of membranes is mandatory to ensure long-term supply of permeate in high quality and sufficient quantity. New cleaning concepts with proprietary cleaning products are gaining in importance. The successful application of such a cleaning concept at Germany's biggest RO plant is described in this paper.

    The transposition of the new Council Directive laying down basic safety standards for protection against the dangers arising from exposure to ionising radiation will entail a comprehensive revision of the German Radiation Protection Ordinance, the X-Ray Ordinance and the Precautionary Radiation Protection Act. This is, inter alia, due to the treatment of practices involving naturally-occurring radioactive material as planned exposure situations; the requirement to establish dose constraints for occupational, public and - partly - medical exposure; the new provisions against indoor exposure to radon in dwellings and at workplaces; new provisions on building materials emitting ionizing radiation and the very detailed provisions on emergency. Particularly those areas for which also at international level a need to address radiation protection has been identified will benefit from the new legislation. (orig.)

    After 1918 Germany had to find a new definition for its identity on a political and social level as well as to rediscover itself as a unity in terms of geography and culture. This process can be described as „Inner colonisation“. Scientists and artists began to compensate the many losses by tapping into the dimension of the „inner“ Germany - its unique cultural density - which in France would be called „la France profonde“. The pressure to be economical was converted into an economy of abunda...

    One year has passed since with the disaster in Fukushima a nuclear accident has happened that, for the second time after Chernobyl, was rated level 7 according to the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) [1]. In response to the disaster, Germany and other industrial countries initiated a turnaround in energy policy and partly opted out of nuclear energy. Worldwide, wind energy installation figures were on the rise compared to 2010, and all in all 41,236 MW were installed in 2011. As in the previous years, the leading country is China with 18,000 MW, followed by the USA (6,810 MW) and India (3,019 MW). With new wind turbine capacity connected to the grid of 2,086 MW in 2011, Germany is in the fourth position, and when looking at the total capacity it is in the third position right after the USA and China (Tab. 1) [2]. Here in Germany meanwhile the turnaround in energy policy has been widely accepted and several federal states have issued or will issue new wind power decrees, energy concepts and development scenarios. In addition there are new priority areas for wind energy use, repowering projects and scheduled installations in the offshore area. It may take some time, however, until these measures will also have an effect on the installation figures. (orig.)

    Two events have contributed significantly to facilitating the trade in natural gas in Germany: The Federal Network Agency's decision in November 2006 in favour of the two-contract model as a means of governing access to the gas networks and the unification of high gas market regions. These developments will boost competition in the gas market and improve price transparency. Since July 2007 the European Energy Exchange has operated a trading floor for the spot and futures trade in natural gas in two German market regions. However it will probably take another two to three years for a robust and substantial trade in natural gas to develop. Major factors contributing to this goal will be the continued consolidation of market regions, improved access to natural gas storages and improved transparency of market information.

  10. Scenarios for cutting down energy-related climate gas emissions in Germany; Szenarien zur Minderung energiebedingten Klimagasemissionen in Deutschland

    Hake, J.F.; Kuckshinrichs, W. [Forschungszentrum Juelich (Germany). Programmgruppe Systemforschung und Technologische Entwicklung (STE)

    1998-12-31

    Developing successful strategies for cutting down climate gas emissions is an extremely complex task. This goal can be aimed at by a combination of measures. But the results of individual scenarios are no immediate clue to their practicability. The results of scenarios must always be discussed within the context of the assumptions made and, where applicable, the targets set. Consequently, their informative value is limited. The contribution of scenarios to the answering of energy-political issues is that they define possible scope for action. (orig.)

    1992-01-21

    Wagner and Co Solartechnik GmbH, member of Deutscher Fachverband Solarenergie e.V. (DFS), was founded in 1979 as an autonomous company by one dormant partner and eight active partners. A 1991 solar collector sales volume of 20,000 m{sup 2} and a market-leading solar power position in Hesse place the company among today's major manufacturers of solar energy systems in the Federal Republic of Germany. In spite of this remarkable achievement the founders' exological philosophy has always been more than a mere product advertising strategy. The fact that the staff of 40 members has made 'ecological thinking' the matter-of-course basis of any of the company's transactions is manifest in the extensions to and equipment of the new 1,300 m{sup 2} production, storage, dispatch and office building the firm has been occupying since September 1991. The adopted scheme of using low-cost, massproduced components from other branches of the industry for solar systems production and provide them with high-quality absorbers to be offered as low-cost kits has been the company's reliable pillar. Meanwhile the reasonably priced materials are also used for pre-assembled lightweight collector production on the company premises. (orig.).

    The substantial changes in the structure of German power supply plants pose high demands on the flexibility of the operational scheduling of conventional thermal power plants. Grosskraftwerk Mannheim AG is a power plant company that is operating a plant for combined power and district heat generation. The paper describes some measures which have been taken to improve the plant's operational flexibility. In addition, the associated technical systems and their functions, as well as the state of ongoing projects are outlined. Special focus is placed on topics related to issues such as ''district-heat storage unit of the new unit 9, flexibility of operational scheduling, and efficient CHP plant operation''.

  16. The measurement of the gluon polarization by the production of hadron pairs with large transverse momenta in deep inelastic muon scattering on the nucleon; Die Messung der Gluonpolarisation durch die Produktion von Hadronpaaren mit grossen Transversalimpulsen in tiefinelastischer Myonstreuung am Nukleon

    Hermann, Roman

    2009-09-05

    The spin structure of the nucleon is investigated at the COMPASS experiment at the CERN SPS using polarized muons scattering off polarized nucleons. The contribution of the quarks to nucleon spin, as measured in the inclusive deep-inelastic scattering, is not sufficient to explain the spin of the nucleon. Thus it has to be clarified how the gluon polarization and the angular momenta of quarks and gluons contribute to the spin of the nucleon. Since the gluon polarization can only be estimated from the Q{sup 2}-dependence of inclusive deep inelastic asymmetries, a direct measurement of the gluon polarization is mandatory. The COMPASS collaboration determines the gluon polarization from cross section asymmetries in photon-gluon fusion processes using open charm production or the production of hadron pairs with large transverse momenta. This thesis presents a measurement of the gluon polarization using the COMPASS data of the years 2003 and 2004. The events with large virtuality, Q{sup 2}>1 GeV{sup 2}/c{sup 2}, and hadron pairs with large transverse momenta, p perpendicular to > 0.7 GeV/c have been used in the analysis. The photon-nucleon asymmetry was determined by using a weighted double ratio method of the selected events. The cut on p perpendicular to > 0.7 GeV/c suppresses leading order processes, so that the obtained asymmetry can be directly linked to the gluon polarization, if the analyzing power and the photon-gluon fusion fraction is known. The measured value is very small and compatible with a vanishing gluon polarization. To avoid false asymmetries, which could be caused by a change of the detector acceptances double ratios were analyzed, where the cross section cancels, and only detector asymmetries remain. It is shown that the COMPASS spectrometer was stable during the time of data taking. For the computation of the analyzing power Monte Carlo events were generated using the LEPTO and the COMGeant software packages. In this context a good MC description of the data is important. For this the JETSET parameters were optimized in order to improve the MC description. A value of ({delta}G)/(G)=0.054{+-}0.145{sub (stat)}{+-}0.131{sub (sys)}{+-}0.04{sub (MC)} is obtained for the gluon polarization with a momentum fraction of left angle x{sub gluon} right angle =0.1 and left angle Q{sup 2} right angle =1.9 GeV{sup 2}/c{sup 2}. This result points to a very small gluon polarization and agrees well with the results of other methods, like open charm production and the results, which were obtained at the doubly polarized RHIC Collider at the BNL.

    Purpose: A retrospective analysis of long-term efficacy of combined transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) and percutaneous ethanol injection (PEI) and TACE monotherapy was conducted in patients with large, non-resectable hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Methods and Materials: Fifty patients with large, unresectable HCC lesions underwent selective TACE. Liver cirrhosis was present in 42 patients, due to alcohol abuse (n = 22) and viral infection (n = 17). In three patients, the underlying cause for liver cirrhosis remained unclear. Child A cirrhosis was found in 22 and Child B cirrhosis in 20 patients. Repeated and combined TACE and PEI were performed in 22 patients and repeated TACE monotherapy was performed in 28 patients. Survival and complication rates were determined and compared. Results: The 6-, 12-, 24- and 36-month survival rates were 61%, 21%, 4%, and 4% for TACE monotherapy and 77%, 55%, 39% and 22% for combined TACE and PEI (Kaplan-Meier method). The kind of treatment significantly affected the survival rate (p=0.002 log-rank test). Severe side effects were present in two patients of the monotherapy group and in three patients of the combination therapy group. (orig.)

    2001-08-01

    Room air quality is highly important in Germany as people living here will spend 90 percent of their lives inside rooms. Air quality is defined to a large extent via the nose. This research project, in continuation of AiF 10525, involved investigations of materials and components of space HVAC systems with varying air temperatures, humidities and air flow rates for a subjective assessment of the air quality. The main goals were the definition of laws for identification of odorants and the derivation of laws for calculating pollutant-level-dependent ambient air rates for mechanically ventilated rooms. The experiments showed that both adsorption and desorption had a significant part in the addition of odorangs, causing deviations between theoretical and experimental values of felt air quality. The temperature and the relative humidity had an effect as well. Most measurements were made near the olfactory threshold, so that a number of participants were unable to complete the test. Later investigations will rely on analytical methods in addition to test persons. (orig.) [German] Das Thema der Luftqualitaet in Innenraeumen hat in Deutschland grosse Bedeutung, da sich die Bevoelkerung zu 90 Prozent ihres Lebens in Innenraeumen aufhaelt. Die Behaglichkeit der Atemluft wird in grossem Masse durch die mit der Nase wahrgenommenen Bestandteile der Luft beeinflusst. In Fortsetzung zum Forschungsvorhaben AiF 10525 wurden in diesem Forschungsvorhaben Untersuchungen mit Materialien und Komponenten aus RLT-Anlagen unter Veraenderung von Lufttemperatur, Luftfeuchte und Luftgeschwindigkeit zur subjektiven Beurteilung der Luftqualitaet durchgefuehrt. Die Hauptziele dieser Untersuchungen waren das Auffinden der Gesetzmaessigkeiten zur Wahrnehmung von Geruchsstoffen und das Ableiten von Rechenregeln zur Bestimmung verunreinigungslastabhaengiger Aussenluftraten fuer maschinell belueftete Raeume. Die Versuche zeigten, dass Adsorption und Desorption bei der Addition von Geruchsstoffen

    Despite the great medical importance, there is still no comprehensive scientometric analysis regarding the results of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the development of the importance for the healthcare system. This paper evaluated and analyzed the entire research publication results on the topic of MRI for the period 1981-2007 based on scientometric methods and parameters. A scientometric analysis (database: ISI Web of Science 1981-2007, search terms MRI and magnetic resonance imaging) was performed. The following parameters were analyzed: number of publications, countries of publication, number of citations, citation rate and collaborations, using various analytical and display techniques, including density equalizing map projections. Most of the 49,122 publications on MRI could be attributed to the USA (32.5 %), which also has the most cooperative collaborations. Within Europe, Germany (10.3 %) is the country with the highest number of publications followed by the UK (9.3 %). The western industrialized nations dominate over the rest of the world in terms of scientific developments of MRI. The thematic focus of the publications lies in the fields of radiology and neuroscience. In addition to the journal Neurology most scientific articles were published in Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Circulation. The results show that the current trend is continuing and the scientific interest in MRI is continuously increasing. (orig.)

    Full Text Available In the 1950s, the nuclear age was announced and propagated worldwide as a future blessing for mankind. “Atoms for peace” was the promising slogan, indicating that Western industrial nations denying the atomic salvation would be seriously threatening their own and the whole West’s economic prosperity. West Germany heavily embraced this technological utopia and relied on the development of nuclear technology since the 1950s. Despite continuous grassroot protest especially in West Germany, this resulted in a path dependency of a technical momentum (Thomas P.

    The basics for the understanding of radioactivity and radioprotection are set in the secondary school. Therefore the German-Swiss Radiation Protection Association already is trying to support the appropriate teaching of relevant topics in school for a long time. Unfortunately experiments with radioactive material are hampered in Germany by complex and confusing legislation. In this contribution the framework is described which is given by the German legislation for the use of radioactive sources in secondary schools. Additionally proposals for different simple experiments with radioactivity are presented which can be easily implemented in teaching and alternative methods are introduced like e.g. virtual experiments.

Durante las décadas de 1930 y 1940, se conformaron asociaciones que aglutinaron a germanoparlantes de diversas procedencias que compartían su oposición al Tercer Reich. Entre aquel variopinto conjunto de militantes antihitleristas, se encontraron dos agrupaciones que fueron dirigidas desde el exilio por Otto Strasser, quien durante la década de 1920 fue una de las principales figuras del Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (Partido nacionalsocialista obrero alemán. Los seguidores locales de Strasser fijaron sus posiciones ante la escalada antisemita experimentada en Europa, explicitaron sus concepciones acerca de la relación entre los judíos y Alemania y mantuvieron contactos con los emigrados judíos de habla alemana.

    Analyses of public attitudes towards and the acceptance and risk perception of energy policy and energy technology options are becoming increasingly important. In a technical society such as ours public acceptance of technical innovations cannot always be taken for granted, and high priority must therefore be given to determining the conditions under which the implementation of new technologies might meet with public acceptance. Experience has shown that complex technologies involving large-scale installations meet with greater acceptance problems than other areas of technology. This is especially the case with carbon capture and storage (CCS). The commercial use of CCS not only raises questions about its technical, economic and legal feasibility but will also meet head-on with a discussion as to its public acceptance.

    In recent years several initiatives addressed the inadequate financial support of pollutant-related environmental research in the Federal Republic of Germany. For an objective analysis about the research funding in ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry in Germany, an anonymous online survey was prepared. With support of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) - German Language Branch and the German Chemical Society (GDCh) - Division of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology an invitation to participate in the survey was sent to all members of these two major associations for ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry in Germany (D), Switzerland (CH) and Austria (A). Only senior staff from the areas academics, government and industry was invited. The present article introduces the results of the survey. It is segmented in a section on socio-economic characterization of the participants, a section on support of research by the DFG and a section on funding by other funding organizations. A total of 71 male and female scientists in senior positions from various areas participated in the survey. The results revealed that the participants are to be classified as having excellent records. 48.5 % of the respondents had submitted at least one research proposal to the DFG in the past, but one third actually received financial support by the DFG. 64% are not satisfied with the DFG support of pollutantrelated research, only 7 % are satisfied. It turned out that the research proposals are generally very heterogeneous and thus distributed to various units of the DFG with geosciences, water research and chemistry ranking highest, followed by biology and ecology. 91.2 % of the respondents indicated that they have submitted proposals for research funding to other funding institutions (except the DFG), and 83.6 % already have received appropriate external funding. 62.3 % of the scientists believe that overall support for chemicals-related research in recent years has significantly deteriorated or is deteriorating. The vast majority of respondents (60.9 %) is dissatisfied with the funding situation, only 10.9 % are satisfied. When asked ''Is the total research funding in other European countries superior to that in Germany?'' 30 % answered ''yes'', 9 % answered ''no'' and 61 % ''do not know''. In summary the survey shows that the funding situation for research in ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry in Germany is improvable, and with respect to the DFG it is considered problematic. The noticeable under-representation of the DFG in comparison to other funding institutions shows that the most important funding body in Germany does not take into account the requirements of pollutant-related environmental sciences. In particular the answers to the open questions regarding improvement of research funding should be used as a basis for an open dialogue of chemicals-related environmental research institutes with the funding institutions DFG, BMBF and DBU and corresponding institutions in CH and A.

  17. Holistic analysis of thermochemical processes by using solid biomass for fuel production in Germany; Ganzheitliche Analyse thermochemischer Verfahren bei der Nutzung fester Biomasse zur Kraftstoffproduktion in Deutschland

    Henssler, Martin

    2015-04-28

    According to the German act ''Biokraftstoff-Nachhaltigkeitsverordnung'', biofuels must show a CO{sub 2eq}-reduction compared to the fossil reference fuel (83.8 g CO{sub 2eq}/MJ{sub fuel} /Richtlinie 98/70/EG/) of 35 % beginning with 2011. In new plants, which go into operation after the 31.12.2016 the CO{sub 2eq}-savings must be higher than 50 % in 2017 and higher than 60 % in 2018 /Biokraft-NachV/. The biofuels (methyl ester of rapeseed, bioethanol and biomethane) considered in this study do not meet these requirements for new plants. To comply with these rules new processes must be deployed. Alternative thermochemical generated fuels could be an option. The aim of this work is to evaluate through a technical, ecological and economic analysis (Well-to-Wheel) whether and under what conditions the thermochemical production of Fischer-Tropsch-diesel or -gasoline, hydrogen (H{sub 2}) and Substitute Natural Gas (SNG) complies with the targets. Four different processes are considered (fast pyrolysis and torrefaction with entrained flow gasifier, CHOREN Carbo-V {sup registered} -gasifier, Absorption Enhanced Reforming (AER-) gasifier). Beside residues such as winter wheat straw and residual forest wood, wood from short-rotation plantations is taken into account. The technical analysis showed that at present status (2010) two and in 2050 six plants can be operated energy-self-sufficient. The overall efficiency of the processes is in the range of 41.5 (Fischer-Tropsch-diesel or -gasoline) and 59.4 % (H{sub 2}). Furthermore, it was found that for 2010, all thermochemical produced fuels except the H{sub 2}-production from wood from short-rotation plantations in decentralised or central fast pyrolysis and in decentralised torrefactions with entrained flow gasifier keep the required CO{sub 2eq}-saving of 60 %. In 2050, all thermochemical produced fuels will reach these limits. The CO{sub 2eq}-saving is between 72 (H{sub 2}) and 95 % (Fischer-Tropsch-diesel or -gasoline). When the production costs of the thermochemical produced fuels for 2010 are compared, it becomes evident, that they are not competitive with fossil fuels. The range of costs at the petrol station are between 27.1 (Fischer-Tropsch-diesel- or -gasoline) and 70.7 Euro{sub 2010}/GJ{sub fuel} (H{sub 2}). With rising CO{sub 2eq}-costs as well as crude oil and natural gas prices future prospects are getting better for the thermochemical produced fuels.

  19. Deep geothermics in Germany. An energy-economic analysis of the status and possible developments; Tiefe Geothermie in Deutschland. Eine energiewirtschaftliche Analyse des Standes und moeglicher Entwicklungen

    Janczik, Sebastian

    2015-11-01

    With the aim to supply the energy-intense and highly industrialized economy of the Federal Republic of Germany more climate-friendly and crisis-safely with a larger contribution of homelike energy in the past years by the federal government a manifold of obligatory aims were composed. So for instance the greenhouse-gas emissions of 1990 shall be reduced against 2020 by 40 %. This shall be reached among others by an increased use of the renewable energies. But a transformation of these ambitionized aims seems from the present view only realistic, if in future all in Germany available options for the supply of current and heat from renewable energies are distinctly more intensively used. In front of the background of the geothermic potentials available in Germany the current and heat supply from deep geothermics is a very much promising option. But in 2012 only one facility and in 2013 three facilities have gone to the net. But against this a far-reaching usage of the geothermics in the context of the energy transition and the large heat and current production potentials in Germany is worth to be aspired. In front of the described problematics the aim of this work is to show how the system technics of the facilities for the usage of the deep underground for a current respectively heat production present themselves and how such complete facilities can be evaluated by means of technical, economical, and ecological characteristics. Base on the shown political aim settings it then shall be analyzed, how the calculated characteristics could change in future and whether the deep geothermics can provide an increasing contribution in the energy system of the future. The corresponding potential further developments are thereby analyzed regarding a short-termed (i. e. 2020) and an intermediate-termed (i. e. 2030) time horizon.

  20. "Ein großer Vorsprung gegenüber Deutschland". Die niederländischen Architekten auf der Bauhausausstellung von 1923 in Weimar

    van Bergeijk, Herman

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available This article discusses the Dutch contribution to the International Architecture Exhibition that was part of the Bauhaus Manifestation in 1923. The Dutch architect J.J.P. Oud, together with the director of the school in Weimar, Walter Gropius, decided which architects would be asked to participate and send in works. Oud selected the works of these architects according to his own criteria. He had a specific agenda that was dictated by the position he had in the Netherlands and abroad as an advocate of modernist architecture. His interest was not to show what was really going on in general in the Netherlands but to illustrate that there was a strong movement in the country towards the development of a new architecture based on the use of new materials. The article positions this radical attitude of Oud and confronts it with how German architects, who were particularly informed, looked at the situation in the neighbouring country.

    Blesl, Markus; Bruchof, David; Fahl, Ulrich; Kober, Tom; Kuder, Ralf; Beestermoeller, Robert; Goetz, Birgit; Voss, Alfred

    2011-06-01

    The report is aimed to discuss the implications of changed NPP lifetimes in Germany on energy policy, environment, energy cost and macroeconomics. An extensive scenario analysis is used considering the effects on the German energy system in the frame of the European context. It is shown that a nuclear phase-out until 2017 is technically feasible, but needs adequate replacement options that will change the German energy system in the medium term. The study shows that the time of nuclear phase-out has no significant influence on the use of renewable energies.

  2. Go west : internal migration in Germany after reunification Go West : interregionale Migration in Deutschland nach der Wiedervereinigung

    Birgit Glorius

    2012-12-01

    Full Text Available The paper wants to shed light on the phenomenon of internal migration in Germany after the fall of the iron curtain. Since German reunification, the eastern part of Germany lost a large share of its population due to internal migration. Whereas in the beginning, departures were spread evenly over all age and educational groups and were accompanied by a significant counter-stream, in the course of time the negative migration balance was mainly produced by younger people at the beginning of their professional career. The paper describes the development of internal east-west migration in detail and presents primary data on the profiles of young migrants drawn from a research project during the years 2004-2007 (in this research project, financed by the German Research Foundation DFG, data were gathered from 1,200 migrants aged between 18-35 who moved from the federal state Sachsen-Anhalt to the western part of Germany. Hereby, special emphasis will be given to the methodological implications of studying selective migration processes. Final conclusions are drawn regarding the regional assessment and theoretical classification of this migration process, but also on the theoretical and methodological constraints of mobility research.Seit der deutschen Wiedervereinigung hat Ostdeutschland beträchtliche Bevölkerungs­verluste aufgrund von innerdeutschen Wanderungen zu verzeichnen. Während der Migrationsstrom zunächst relativ gleichmäßig über alle Bevölkerungsgruppen hinsichtlich Alter und Bildungsstand verteilt war und überdies von einem signifikanten Gegenstrom begleitet wurde, hat er sich im Laufe der 1990er Jahre ausdifferenziert. Die negative Wanderungsbilanz ist heute vor allem durch die Abwanderung junger Menschen zu Beginn des Erwerbslebens gekennzeichnet. Der Beitrag bietet eine detaillierte Beschreibung der innerdeutschen Ost-West-Wanderung und präsentiert empirische Primärdaten zu den Profilen junger Ost-West-Migranten aus Sachsen-Anhalt (die Daten stammen aus einer durch die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft DFG finanzierten Studie zur innerdeutschen Ost-West-Wanderung, die 1.200 junge Abwanderer zwischen 18 und 35 Jahren umfasste. Die abschließende Generalisierung gibt Hinweise bezüglich der spezifischen geographischen Kompetenzen – aber auch der Fallstricke – im Bereich der internationalen und intra-nationalen Migrationsforschung.

    This study investigated the need for the construction of new railway lines and expansion of the existing railway network in Germany. The target to be achieved was based on the UBA strategy of being able to absorb 213 billion tkm on the rail by 2025. The time factor is not really that important, however; what counts is the selection of a target that forces all parties concerned to make infrastructural plans and think ahead if they are convinced in principle of the advantages of railway cargo transport.

  8. On the way to greater transparency. Electricity labelling in Austria and Germany; Auf dem Weg zu mehr Transparenz. Stromkennzeichnung in Oesterreich und Deutschland

    Kuhlmann, Josefine; Puchbauer-Schnabel, Angela [Energie-Control Austria, Wien (Austria)

    2012-03-15

    The liberalisation of the electricity markets and resulting emergence of competition have created a need for greater transparency towards consumers. The idea is to provide consumers with several criteria for selecting their electricity supplier, thus granting them an influence on production structures and allowing them to contribute to the development of a sustainable energy supply system. For this purpose the EU has set itself the goal of creating an appropriately transparent electricity labelling system involving the use of certificates of origin and has obliged the member states to transpose such requirements into national law. This article examines the relevant German and Austrian regulations and identifies points of departure for establishing a uniform procedure for the entire EU.

    2013-03-15

    The volume of electricity sold to consumers in the voluntary green electricity market is growing continuously. On 1 January 2013 the Certificates of Origin Registry of the German Federal Environmental Office went into service. This authority obliges electricity suppliers in Germany to use its services if they wish to prove to their final customers that they are supplying them with electricity from ''other renewable resources''. This gives rise to the question as to how certificates of origin can contribute to the further development and to meaningful differentiation in the green electricity market.

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to present the collaboration between companies in the energy sector in Austria and Germany. During the financial crisis 2008–2012, Austrian energy companies became important partners of German firms supplying Germany with the energy necessary for industries and households. In addition, companies from Austria and Germany participated in the first phase of construction of the pipeline Nabucco. Thanks to manage capital of Austrian and German companies, they may now jointly pursue the objective of expansion in third countries market. After the energy reform, known as the Energiewende, Germany needs more electricity, which largely provide the company with a smaller, but equally high-tech Republic of Austria.

  11. CO{sub 2} emission from coal-based electricity generation in Germany; CO{sub 2}-Emissionen aus der Kohleverstromung in Deutschland

    Hermann, Hauke; Harthan, Ralph O.

    2014-03-10

    In 2013 the coal based electricity generation has increased, mainly because emission trade can actually not produce an adequate tax effect. From 10 coal-fired power plants in Germany nine use brown coal only one uses hard coal. Productivity analyses show that brown coal-fired plants have higher productivities than gas or hard coal fired power plants, but the CO{sub 2} emissions are significantly higher in case of brown coal. The oldest (older than 40 years) and least efficient brown coal fired power plants are operated in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Germany has committed itself to reduce CO{sub 2} emissions until 2020 by 40% compared to 1990. If this has to be generated by emission trading the prices would have to increase to more than 40 Euro/ton CO{sub 2} long before 2020. Otherwise administrative regulations would be necessary to reach the environmental goal.

    2015-07-01

    The conventional mining industry has a rich tradition and as mining is practised all over the world under a whole range of different conditions the industry has witnessed all kinds of technical developments aimed at controlling strata behaviour and winning the target mineral as efficiently as possible. The proposed use of deep geological deposits as disposal facilities for nuclear waste has transformed the role of the mining Industry and instead of extracting material from the ground mining engineers are now focussing more on how to store waste material safely deep below the earth's surface. Nevertheless, this new remit retains many of the key aspects of conventional mining and the experience that the industry has built up over the years Is still of vital importance when it comes to selecting a suitable disposal site and planning a final waste disposal facility in deep geological formations. These processes benefit from the support of specialists with a mining engineering background, as this can help to avoid unnecessary delays, additional costs and potential damage to public image. The following paper describes some of the expertises and methods developed by the conventional extraction industry that are also of relevance for the construction of disposal facilities.

    This study provides a first systematic quantification and conversion into monetary terms of the relevant social costs and benefits, in order to create a basis for corrective measures with respect to the use of wind power and the photovoltaic use of solar energy. Four main areas of social costs of energy systems are looked at in the study: Environmental costs, including the effect on human health. Inadequate consideration of the long-term shortage of resources in present-day market prices. Macroeconomic effects such as changes in the net product or employment. Subsidies via state agencies, which are made partly in the form of direct payments and partly in an indirect way in the form of state services. State subsidies in the area of research and development can be subsumed under the last point. In each of these main fields there is a multiplicity of separate external effects which are dealt with at length in a special chapter. (orig./UA) With 20 figs., 24 tabs.

    Full Text Available The main purpose of this consumer study was firstly to calculate the economic importance, in term of purchasing power, of visitors in the German wine growing region Rheingau, and secondly to examine their demographic and behavioural characteristics, as well as their the motivation using segmentation approach. In the framework of a face-to-face survey, conducted between April and May 2015, a total of 1,555 tourists were interviewed at 18 different locations in the Rheingau. Four wine tourist types were identified by using cluster analysis: 1 Wine and Rheingau lovers, who have a high interest in wine and visit the region several times a year; 2 wine-oriented tourists, who use the culinary offerings of the Rheingau with pleasure but do not come to the region very often; 3 new visitors, who come to the region mainly because of the nature and history; and 4 foreign tourists, who have less knowledge about the Rheingau and buy less wine in the region. With the help of the purchasing power calculation, we can state that approximately 18 % of the total production is purchased directly in the region by tourists.

  6. ILK statement on determining operation periods for nuclear power plants in Germany; ILK-Stellungnahme zur Festlegung von Betriebszeiten fuer Kernkfraftwerke in Deutschland

    NONE

    2005-09-15

    The question of how long nuclear power plants (NPPs) can be safely operated while maintaining a high safety standard played an important role in the worldwide expert discussion in recent years. Far-reaching agreement exists on which reviews and measures to undertake in order to safely operate such plants over longer time periods. In most countries operating licenses for NPPs are not limited in time; this is also the case for Germany. However, the authorization for power operation expires if the plant has used up its approved electricity generation quota. This quota corresponds to a value established in the Atomic Energy Act (AtG) for the individual unit that is based on an operating time of 32 years. On the basis of operating experiences gathered with plants currently in operation and also due to available research findings, the ILK believes that there are no safetyrelated reasons for limiting the operating time of nuclear power plants a priori. The ILK notes that the German NPPs have a high safety standard that is constantly monitored by the regulatory authority. Periodic safety reviews (PSRs), which are performed every ten years, are part of this process. The ILK also takes the view, however, that in the case of very long operating periods, it makes sense to make the continued operation depend on a renewed evaluation (of the plant). This requires demonstrating that the plant displays a level of safety that corresponds to the requirements for the future operating period. The ILK recommends the following approach: - The limitation of production quotas currently laid down in the German Atomic Energy Act should be lifted; - In addition to maintaining the current safety standard, licensees should examine improvement measures for the further reduction of the residual risk and, where appropriate, apply these. The effectiveness of the PSR in its current form should be assessed and the guidelines for their application should be updated, if necessary; - After an operating period of 40 years at the latest, a special safety review should be supplied by the licensee and be evaluated by the authority. On this basis plant operation can continue for 10 more years at a time as insofar as the authority does not raise objections. In addition to the analyses covered by the PSR, the special safety review contains the following requirements: - The current status of the plant or its status at the start of the renewal period is to be compared to the requirements of the safety criteria and the RSK safety standards. - Operating management is carried out according to the best current practices. - An effective aging management exists. - An up-to-date probabilistic safety analysis (PSA) that covers all operating conditions exists for Level 1 and Level 2. - Backfits that are necessary for maintaining the existing safety level or lead to a further improvement of the safety level when taking the appropriateness of means into account have been or will be applied.

  7. Will eco-power create new jobs? Job effects of funding programmes for renewable energy sources in Germany; Jobmotor Oekostrom? Beschaeftigungseffekte der Foerderung von erneuerbaren Energien in Deutschland

    Fahl, U.; Kuester, R.; Ellersdorfer, I. [Inst. fuer Energiewirtschaft und Rationelle Energieanwendung (IER), Univ. Stuttgart (Germany)

    2005-07-15

    In view of the high unemployment rate in Germany today, the criterion of job creation should also applied to environmental and energy policy. At the same time, the climate protection goals of the Kyoto convention must be met. In this light, the established instrument of job effect analysis of political decisions is gaining new topicality. Especially the EEG (Renewables Act) is viewed by many as a means of creating jobs, with an estimate of about 120,000 new jobs. The contribution presents a critical analysis of this expectation.

    2014-09-15

    A heated discussion is being waged in Germany and large parts of Europe over the introduction of what are referred to as capacity mechanisms, whose purpose is to provide security of supply in the electricity sector. In this context two consulting firms have undertaken a both qualitative and quantitative study of the fitness of the present market design, which is based on the ''Energy-Only Market'' (EOM), to provide security of supply in the German electricity market. The authors come to the conclusion that, if suitably framed, the EOM can continue to provide a secure electricity supply in accordance with consumer preferences and at the lowest possible cost.

  9. Studies on cadmium exposure in the population of the Federal Republic of Germany. Untersuchungen zur Cadmiumbelastung der Bevoelkerung in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Ewers, U.

    1990-01-01

    The author reports on a number of studies performed on cadmium exposure in the population of the Federal Republic of Germany, in particular that of the Rhine-Ruhr region. The studies covered: - the examinations for Cd concentrations in full blood (CdB), in urine (CdU) in different population groups, and the analysis of various influencing factors; - an autopsy study involving 388 corpses from the Duesseldorf and Duisburg regions to determine the concentrations of cadmium, copper and zinc in the renal cortex - an epidemiological study on the occurrence and incidence of cadmium-induced renal function disorders in inhabitants of areas exposed to high Cd immission levels (Stolberg, Duisburg). The studies indicate CdB concentrations to be influenced by the following factors: - smoking; - age; - sex; - Cd immission level. Measurements of CdU concentrations were performed in children from Duisburg and Goch, and in women aged 65 and 66 from Stolberg, Duisburg and Duesseldorf. The results of the study performed in children did not reveal any influence of Cd immission levels. The results of the autopsy study showed that Cd concentrations in the renal cortex of persons not exposed to heavy metals occupationally, are well below the critical CdKc concentration on an average. The results of the epidemiological study on cadmium-induced renal function disorders in 286 women aged 65 and 66 from the cities of Stolberg, Duisburg and Duesseldorf revealed that no indications for renal dysfunctions clearly attributable to excessive Cd accumulation in the kidney, were verified even in a population group which had been exposed to relatively high Cd levels from the environment.

  10. Einstein erlangt Weltruhm – Eine vergleichende Rezeptionsgeschichte der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie in Großbritannien und Deutschland 1919-1920

    Maik Hollinger

    2014-05-01

    Full Text Available Nowadays Albert Einstein is the archetype of a scientist. His world fame has its roots in the revolutionary corroboration of his general theory of relativity during the sun eclipse in May 1919 and the eventual presentation of the obtained results. Having a strong resonance in the scientific community as well as in public, the coverage in the press can be traced back to be the main factor that shaped Einstein’s picture in the past – reverberating even today. The political situation immediately after the First World War puts this episode in the history of science in a setting where many insights into the interactions between science, politics, the press and international relations at the shift from 1919–1920 can be found.

    Wanke, C.; Solle, A.; Behrendt, R.; Geworski, L. [Medizinische Hochschule Hannover (Germany). Stabsstelle Strahlenschutz und Abt. Medizinische Physik

    2015-07-01

    In a university hospital, potentially radioactive contaminated waste emerges from hospital operation, in particular nuclear medicine operations, as well as from biochemical research activities. In Germany, this type of contaminated waste can be disposed of conventionally, provided a clearance in accordance with paragraph 29 of the radiation protection ordinance has been approved and the values for specific activity and surface contamination given in Annex III of the radiation protection ordinance are not exceeded. In small medical institutions such as medical practices licensed to handle only a few short-lived nuclides, a storage to allow for decay, possibly followed by a qualitative contamination monitor measurement may be sufficient. In large departments offering nuclear medicine therapies and running isotope laboratories, more sophisticated procedures and measurement methods are required to prove that clearance levels are met. Radioactive impurities such as Ac-227 may be present in pharmaceuticals with Ra-223 for example, that have to be considered. These impurities are of minor importance for the patient receiving medical examinations or treatment, but have to be taken into account for clearance. This work shows the requirements placed in the last years, how we dealt with these requirements, and which questions still remain open.

  17. The diffusion of trends demonstrated at the example of biofuels in Germany; Die Verbreitung neuer Technologien am Beispiel von Biokraftstoffen in Deutschland

    Benignus, Isabell

    2010-08-04

    By now, Biofuels became an inherent part of the German strategy to fulfil the climate targets of the Kyoto protocol as well as the reduction of the high dependency of power supply from foreign countries. However, Biofuels will only be able to deploy a material effect if their market share increases significantly over the next few years. In Germany, the market share of biofuels is still below ten percent. From a global view the market share is even smaller. The diffusion of biofuels is a problem of the diffusion of new technologies, which covers both the demand side and the production technologies of the supply side. The intention of the work is the analysis of the diffusion of biofuels from a political-economical point of view. The substantial theoretical results of the economic diffusion research are clarified using a neoclassical model and illustrated using the example of the German biofuels market. The work shall contribute to the ongoing discussion on the promotion of biofuels. Accordingly, the focus of the work is application-oriented. The three focal points of the work are: 1. Identification of relevant diffusion constraints of biofuels and analysis of their effects by means of a neoclassical diffusion model. 2. Analysis of the eligibility for support of biofuels. A special focus lies on the question of suitability of different promotion instruments. 3. Empirical examination of the diffusion effect of selected national promotion instruments on the German biodiesel market. A special focus lies on the most important instrument for the promotion of biodiesel: (partial) the energy tax exemption for biodiesel in Germany.

    All public licensed hospitals of Germany are obligated since 2004 to establish and to publish a structured biennial quality report. The aim of this study was to analyse the quality reports from 2008 of clinics with nuclear-medicine therapy ward and to investigate developments for the inpatient nuclear-medicine therapy by comparing the results with the quality reports of the years 2004 and 2006. Methods: All available structured quality reports of clinics with a nuclear-medicine therapy ward of the years 2004, 2006 and 2008 were evaluated. Results: The total number of inpatient treatment cases in 2008 amounted to 54 190 (2006: 54 884; 2004: 57 366). This corresponds to a decrease of 5.5% in comparison to 2004. The number of the therapy wards decreased at the same time to currently 117 (2006: 120; 2004: 124). Remarkable changes were found in the spectrum of the main diagnosis. Thus, the most frequent diagnosis with the ICD-code E05 (hyperthyroidism) decreased continuously from 37 747 treatments in 2004 and 34 764 in 2006 to 31 756 in the year 2008. In contrast, the ICD-diagnoses for thyroid cancer (C73, Z08) with 14 761 cases in 2008 increased with time (2006: 13 426; 2004: 12 581). Conclusions: In analogy to the observations from Europe after introduction of an iodine prophylaxis the improved iodine supply in Germany has led to a decline of the radioiodine therapy due to hyperthyroidism.

    Renewable energies as a part of the total energy supply of the Federal Republic of Germany are to be extended in the next years. In terms of geothermal resources the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports the project ''Development of an Internet Based Geothermal System for Germany'' (GeotIS). The total duration of the project is three years. Lead-managed by the Leibniz Institute for Applied Geosciences (GGA-Institute) it is realized in a country wide joint venture project with different partners. Initially the geothermal information system will contain data only about hydrogeothermal resources. The object of the project is to improve quality in the planning stage of geothermal plants and to minimize explorations risks. Key parameters are production rate and temperature. The District Authority (Regierungspraesidium) Freiburg has been assigned to attend to the areas of the Upper Rhine Graben and the North Alpine Foreland Basin (Molasse Basin) both situated in Baden-Wuerttemberg. First intermediate results are presented. (orig.)

  1. Merger control in the energy sector. An empirical investigation for the Federal Republic of Germany; Fusionskontrolle in der leitungsgebundenen Energiewirtschaft. Eine empirische Untersuchung fuer Deutschland

    Lauk, Martina Margret

    2008-11-06

    In 1998, EU legislation initiated a liberalisation process among European energy markets. The process of market opening has significantly changed the functioning of the markets and the competition conditions of the energy sector. At the same time, the industry witnessed a surge of mergers and far-reaching changes in the structure of German electricity and natural gas markets occurred. Against this background, the doctoral thesis at hand surveys the merger activities in the energy sector as well as the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office during the first years of liberalisation. The study starts with a portrayal of the institutional framework of the German merger control regime and a survey of the relevant economic literature on horizontal and vertical mergers. Subsequent to the legal and theoretical considerations, the merger activities and the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office are investigated empirically. The data set is based on information taken from merger control files at the archive of the Federal Cartel Office in Bonn. It contains information on more than 250 merger cases and appendant decisions in the German natural gas and electricity sector put before the Federal Cartel Office between 1999 and 2003. In order to perform a statistical analysis, the information contained in the written decisions is transformed into variables. The data set is complemented by information on electricity and gas networks taken from external data sources. The empirical part of the study is divided into two parts: The aim of the first part is to investigate the integration strategies of energy utilities with respect to basic characteristics of the firms involved as well as structural factors of the markets affected by the respective mergers. In the descriptive section, key patterns of the integration strategies of the energy utilities can be identified. The results of the discrete choice analysis show that in addition to firm size of the potential targets market structure parameters and already existing supply relations between the merging firms are the key influencing factors to the integration strategy of the German upstream energy utilities. Additionally, the regression analysis reveals different integration strategies for the three most takeover-greedy energy utilities E.ON AG, RWE AG and EnBW AG. The second part focuses mainly on to what extent the decisions of the German Federal Cartel Office can be ''explained'' through knowledge identity identification of the firms engaged in the merger and observable market structure features. The regression results reflect the concerns of the German Federal Cartel Office against the integration strategies of the upstream electricity and gas firms. Features that indicate that the motive behind the partial acquisition is to secure strategically downstream sales relations feature prominently in the decisions of the cartel office. The relevance of competitive characteristics of the concerned markets, the relation between the merging firms as well as the degree of control achieved by the partial acquisition is identified. Here, especially competition and network characteristics of the gas markets involved play a crucial role for the decision-making process in the merger proceeding. (orig.)

  2. Forms of the cooperation principle in environmental law in the Federal Republic of Germany. Formen des Kooperationsprinzips im Umweltrecht der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Mueggenborg, H J

    1990-01-01

    The cooperation principle is not a legal principle, as in the case of the social state principle or the principle of the democratic constitutional state. In order that the cooperation principle may not degenerate to cheating and accompliceship, legal limitations are necessary. Work on this subject from the point of view of legal science has started late. The contribution investigates the various forms of the cooperation principle: Technical control boards as instruments to relieve the state; committees under private and public law for setting up technical standards, advisory bodies of public administration; organized hearings; environment protection officers in industry. It also investigates the legal admissibility of concerted actions, advantages and disadvantages, effects on legal protection, legal and actual conditions. - The positive sides of cooperation should succeed in order that environmental protection may profit.

  4. Schlechte Zeiten für Bildung: Globalisierung, Deregulierung und Privatisierung im Ländervergleich Türkei und Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Ügeöz, Perihan

    1998-09-01

    Because of the forced reductions in state activities that are observed worldwide as a result of the increasingly unrestricted growth of competition, national public institutions of education are under escalating pressure. Both in basic and in higher education, a creeping process of privatization is occurring, while more and more of the costs of education are being passed on to the citizen. This applies to both industrialized countries such as Germany, and to Turkey. The international dimension of this subversive process, which is also drastically affecting the prospects for academic research, is seldom critically addressed in eduational discourse. Instead, the field is dominated by a high-brow attitude to the globalization process which sees it as helping to promote world citizenship.

    Diekmann, Jochen; Hopf, Rainer; Ziesing, Hans-Joachim [Deutsches Institut fuer Wirtschaftsforschung (DIW), Berlin (DE)] (and others)

    2005-01-15

    One goal of the study was the evaluation of single greenhouse gas reduction measures which are part of the national climate protection program initiated in the year 2000 by the German Government. Within the project the potentials of greenhouse gas emissions reduction of single measures have been quantified up to the year 2010. Taken all the impacts of the measures into account, it seems to be possible to reduce the overall greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 20 % by the year 2010. 70 % of the reduction is caused by CO2 emissions reduction and 30 % by a reduction of other non-CO2 emissions. It should be emphasised that 38 million tonnes of CO2 can be reduced by forcing the use of renewable energies. However, to achieve the German's ''burden sharing'' goal of a 21 % emissions reduction by the year 2010 additional measures will be necessary. To analyse emissions reduction strategies for a long-term view (up to 2030) additional scenarios have been developed. The analysis shows that there are still technical options to reduce CO2 emissions by 30 to 40 % by the year 2030. In the case of such ambitious reduction targets measures in all sectors of the energy system have to be implemented. The costs of the different mitigation strategies are strongly correlated with the framework of energy and climate protection policies. (orig.)

    Introduced in autumn 2012 and updated twice a year since, the German 2020 Energy Transition Index (EWI) shows its first signs ever of a favourable trend. At last the indicators have got moving, even though one can hardly speak of a breakthrough yet. In spite of the positive trend, especially in regard to electricity consumption and the rate of newly installed offshore wind power capacity, the envisaged goals are still a long way off. This holds particularly for major indicators such as CO{sub 2} emissions and price levels of household and industrial electricity.

    1980-06-01

    The German model is a consequent continuation of the work which has already lead to the Mesarovic-Pestel world-model and the 2nd report to the Club of Rome: The authors, members of the Institut fuer angewandte Systemforschung und Prognose (ISP) at Hanover, founded in 1975 by Professor Pestel, show the problems and challenges on the way to the 21st century on the basis of numerous model calculations. The German model consists of a number of coupled sub-models investigating the developments in the fields of population, education, economics, energy and labour market. Germany's role in the international network and its contribution to the North-South dialogue is taken into consideration. In the much-discussed energy sector, the calculations show that future requirements will probably be much lower than expected. Until the turn of the century, there will be no serious problems in energy and raw materials supply and consequently no structural changes.

    In recent years, PET and PET/CT have well been established for staging and restaging of various malignancies. Increasingly, the modality is also used for radiotherapy treatment planning. However, clinical studies investigating the patients benefit by the inclusion of those modalities into RT treatment planning are mandatory, simultaneously defining standards for future care. Chances and problems of such studies are discussed using the examples of the PET-Plan and GLIAA trials. (orig.)

    Pursuant to the new BMU safety requirements of September 2010 imposed upon the final storage of radioactive waste generating heat, the operator of a repository in Germany must establish a monitoring program which furnishes relevant measured information during the operations phase and for a defined period of time after closure of the repository. Within the framework of a feasibility study, an assessment basis was established to show in what format information about the status of a closed repository mine could be obtained technically without impairing the safety of barriers, for instance, by cable ducts. As a conceptual design basis, processes and measured quantities relevant to monitoring were attributed to the components of the current safety demonstration concept. For one model variant, monitoring possibilities of these processes were shown on the basis of monitoring modules. Some first experiments are being carried out in European underground laboratories about the use of wireless transmission systems in the repository area. On the basis of those activities, experiments could also be designed in the German exploratory mine of Gorleben in order to examine to what extent information obtained by monitoring could be transmitted in a wireless mode in rock salt formations. As far as the autonomous supply of electricity to measurement systems is concerned, which must be guaranteed on a long-term basis, there is now a possibility of using thermoelectric isotope generators or betavoltaic batteries.

    In Germany, persons who are occupationally exposed to ionising radiation are monitored by several official dosimetry services that transmit the dose records about individual radiation monitoring to the Radiation Protection Register of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS). The purpose of the Radiation Protection Register is to supervise the keeping of the dose limits and to monitor the compliance with the radiation protection principle ''Optimisation'' by performing detailed annual statistical analyses of the monitored persons and their radiation exposure. The annual report of the Radiation Protection Register provides information about status and development of occupational radiation exposure in Germany. In 2012, about 350,000 workers were monitored with dosemeters for occupational radiation exposure. The number increased continuously by totally 10 % into the past five years. 19 % of the monitored persons received measurable personal doses. The average annual dose of these exposed workers was 0.52 mSv corresponding to 2.6 % of the annual dose limit of 20 mSv for radiation workers. In total, 2 persons exceeded the annual dose limit of 20 mSv, i.e. less than one case per 100,000 monitored persons. The collective dose of the monitored persons decreased to 27.9 Person-Sv, the lowest value since the last fifty years of occupational dose monitoring. 45 airlines calculated the route doses of 40,000 aircraft crew members by using certified computer programmes for dose calculation and sent the accumulated monthly doses via the Federal Office for Civil Aviation (''Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, LBA'') to the BfS. The collective dose of the aircraft crew personnel is 78.5 person- Sv, and thus significantly higher than the total collective dose of the workers monitored with personal dosemeters. The annual average dose of aircraft crew personnel was 1.96 mSv and decreased compared to 2011 (2.12 mSv) due to solar cycle. In 2012, about 66,000 outside-workers were in possession of a valid radiation passport. The average annual dose of radiation exposed outside-workers was 1.10 mSv and thus twice as high as the average dose of all radiation exposed workers (0.52 mSv). Only two from thousand owners of radiation passports were impermissibly in possession of more than one valid radiation passport, after more than one passport had been issued to the same person. Since the beginning of the monitoring of radiation passport issuing in 1993, the impermissible issuing of multiple radiation passports was reduced by approximately 90%.

    1993-01-01

    The electricity supply in all countries has traditionally been organised in enclosed supply areas (regional monopoly). During the worldwide trend of privatisation and deregulation, a process towards competitivity in the power supply of many countries has been started. In England and Norway, market fragmentation has been created in the power industry. Future markets are emerging. These developments have influenced considerations on creating an internal market for energy in Europe. The study illustrates the experiences of reform in other countries (e.g. England, Norway, USA) and discusses opportunities for competitiveness reforms in Germany and Europe. (orig.)

    Weyand, M

    1994-09-01

    Deregulation is the catchword which has been ruling the present debate about energy-economy regulations in the Federal Republic of Germany. Deregulation can be interpreted at least in two ways: 1. Maintenance of existing regulations but modification of regulations which are part of the energy economy laws, 2. Introduction of a compulsory gas transit regulation for the benefit of third parties, compulsory deconcentration of the utilities, and abrogation or change of basic legal conditions. Both approaches are discussed and evaluated. (HW) [Deutsch] Die jetzige Diskussion ueber den energiewirtschaftlichen Ordnungsrahmen in der BRD ist durch das Schlagwort Deregulierung gepraegt. Hierfuer existieren jedoch mindestens zwei verschiedene Interpretationen: 1. Grundsaetzliche Beibehaltung des bestehenden Ordnungsrahmens bei gleichzeitiger Modifizierung von Regelungen im Energiewirtschaftsgesetz; 2. Einfuehrung einer Zwangsdurchleitung zugunsten Dritter, Zwangsentflechtung der Versorgungsunternehmen sowie Abschaffung bzw. Aenderung grundlegender ordnungsrechtlicher Rahmenbedingungen. Der vorliegende Beitrag versucht eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit den beiden Ansaetzen. (HW)

    1988-01-01

    As a result of other countries' experiences, the Federal Republic has also been affected by the debate about regulation and deregulation. The discussion is centred particularly on exceptions to the law against competitive restrictions. This anthology aims to assist in clarifying the debate and gives a systematic account of the exceptions, including the theoretical justifications for regulation. Special weight is given to the description and explanation of the current status of regulation. The nature and scope of today's regulation can only be understood when its historical development is included in the examination. It is against this background that the authors make suggestions either for deregulation or for reformulation. The different chapters deal with: The theoretical basis of regulation, regulation in the areas of: The networked energy industry, telecommunications, traffic, banks, insurance markets. (orig./HSCH).

    The study ascertains the equipment and material resources of German data centres for the reference year 2008 and predicts its development until the year 2015 in two scenarios (''business as usual'' and ''Green IT''). Similar studies for other countries or regions are not known so far. In the study a methodology is developed, which allows to calculate the number of data centres in different size classes and their average equipment with IT components and infrastructure elements such as air conditioning systems and power supplies. Reference products are defined and on this basis a detailed determination of the material composition of data centre components is made. This allows to make detailed statements on the material equipment of approximately 53,000 data centres in Germany. In the year 2008 in German Data centres approx.12.000 tonnes of electronics, 17,000 tonnes of copper, 7,000 tonnes of aluminium, 11,000 tonnes of plastics and 58 000 tonnes of iron were used. The electronic material contains 1.8 tonnes of gold, 7.5 tonnes of silver and 0.8 tonnes of palladium. Nearly 30% of the materials are bound in almost 50 major data centres. In the scenario ''business as usual'' the amount of electronics in the German data centres increases from 2008 to 2015 by about 60% up to 20,000 tonnes. This includes almost 3 tonnes of gold, 21 tonnes of silver and 1.8 tonnes of palladium. The amounts of copper, aluminium and iron will increase by over 50%. Even in the scenario ''Green IT'' when the energy needs of data centres in Germany decreases by 40%, the material stock in the data centres would not reduce, especially the electronic material will increase significantly by more than 20%. The study points to significant further research. In particular there is a need to ascertain detailed data on the material composition of IT products (servers, etc.). The study stresses that in the future in addition to the issues of energy efficiency the questions of material efficiency of data centres should be regarded. Additionally the development of appropriate product design and recycling strategies for servers, storage and other data centre components should be enforced. (orig.)

    2014-07-01

    The present book provides an overview of the energy market of the German Federal Republic. Its main emphasis is on structures of demand and supply in the markets for crude oil, brown coal, hard coal, natural gas and electricity. A special chapter has been dedicated to renewable energy resources. Another focal area are the price formation mechanisms for oil, coal, natural gas and electricity. The development of energy demand is analysed, differentiating between the sectors industry, transport, households and trade/industry/services. The book addresses the international climate protection treaties, the legal framework for climate protection activities at the European level and the implementation of trade in greenhouse gas emission permits in Germany. It presents current forecasts and scenarios, thus pointing out possible perspectives in the German energy market. It also discusses the framework conditions for Germany's energy policy. The energy markets are portrayed through facts and figures compiled in a total of 125 tables and 148 diagrams. Details of ownership of more than 100 utility companies are made transparent. The chapter on energy in the coalition agreement of 27 November 2013 between the Christian Democratic Union, Christian Social Union and the Social Democratic Party is documented verbatim. Rounding off the publication is a detailed glossary that will facilitate the reader's understanding of complex matters in the field of energy economy.

    2007-09-01

    Full Text Available In her empirical study, Hidden. Jewish children in National Socialist Germany and their lives afterwards, Birgit SCHREIBER analyses five autobiographical interviews. She presents different perspectives to the reader: a the contemporary, political dimension of the topic concerning German history and recollection, b the (problematic structures of communication between German Jews and non-Jewish Germans (keywords: "crisis of witnesses", c a narrative prospect and analysis, and d a psychoanalytic access of the life stories of traumatized people. Its special potentials—partly innovation and, at the same time, its soft spots—lie in these "multidimensional prospects" of the study. On the one hand, it seems to be unclear where to put the emphasis; is it an Oral-History study, a structural narration, mainly autobiographical work or psychoanalytically substantiated research? On the other hand, the different perspectives allow a sensitive way of dealing with specific forms of communication and meeting and providing a special, empathetic way of analyzing data. Above all, this "mixture" offers the possibility of a wide discussion of basic topics within qualitative research—especially the relation between science and therapy, ethics in research and the construction of an empirically grounded typology.

  6. Merger control in the energy sector. An empirical investigation for the Federal Republic of Germany; Fusionskontrolle in der leitungsgebundenen Energiewirtschaft. Eine empirische Untersuchung fuer Deutschland

    Lauk, Martina Margret

    2008-11-06

    In 1998, EU legislation initiated a liberalisation process among European energy markets. The process of market opening has significantly changed the functioning of the markets and the competition conditions of the energy sector. At the same time, the industry witnessed a surge of mergers and far-reaching changes in the structure of German electricity and natural gas markets occurred. Against this background, the doctoral thesis at hand surveys the merger activities in the energy sector as well as the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office during the first years of liberalisation. The study starts with a portrayal of the institutional framework of the German merger control regime and a survey of the relevant economic literature on horizontal and vertical mergers. Subsequent to the legal and theoretical considerations, the merger activities and the merger control policy of the German Federal Cartel Office are investigated empirically. The data set is based on information taken from merger control files at the archive of the Federal Cartel Office in Bonn. It contains information on more than 250 merger cases and appendant decisions in the German natural gas and electricity sector put before the Federal Cartel Office between 1999 and 2003. In order to perform a statistical analysis, the information contained in the written decisions is transformed into variables. The data set is complemented by information on electricity and gas networks taken from external data sources. The empirical part of the study is divided into two parts: The aim of the first part is to investigate the integration strategies of energy utilities with respect to basic characteristics of the firms involved as well as structural factors of the markets affected by the respective mergers. In the descriptive section, key patterns of the integration strategies of the energy utilities can be identified. The results of the discrete choice analysis show that in addition to firm size of the potential targets market structure parameters and already existing supply relations between the merging firms are the key influencing factors to the integration strategy of the German upstream energy utilities. Additionally, the regression analysis reveals different integration strategies for the three most takeover-greedy energy utilities E.ON AG, RWE AG and EnBW AG. The second part focuses mainly on to what extent the decisions of the German Federal Cartel Office can be ''explained'' through knowledge identity identification of the firms engaged in the merger and observable market structure features. The regression results reflect the concerns of the German Federal Cartel Office against the integration strategies of the upstream electricity and gas firms. Features that indicate that the motive behind the partial acquisition is to secure strategically downstream sales relations feature prominently in the decisions of the cartel office. The relevance of competitive characteristics of the concerned markets, the relation between the merging firms as well as the degree of control achieved by the partial acquisition is identified. Here, especially competition and network characteristics of the gas markets involved play a crucial role for the decision-making process in the merger proceeding. (orig.)

  7. Der Tod des Papstes Johannes Paul II. – ein wissenschaftlicher Vergleich von journalistischen Reaktionen auf den Tod des Papstes in Deutschland und in Polen

    Olga Nadskakuła ‑Kaczmarczyk

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to present the reactions of the Polish and German press to the death of Pope John Paul II, compare and analyze them. This approach allows to understand the differences between Polish and German perception of religion, particularly Christianity and the Catholic Church. Poland and Germany have different religious traditions, a different relationship to the church and to church dogma, rituals and piety. This may be observed as the different ways of looking at the death of Pope John Paul II in Polish and German newspapers. Probably these perceptual differences ensued from the paternal figure of the John Paul II and special emotional Polish attitude to the deceased Polish Pope.

  10. Structure of and change in energy policy in the Federal Republic of Germany. Struktur und Wandel der Energiewirtschaft in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Schiffer, H W

    1985-01-01

    The book offers a closed survey of the energy market in the F.R.G. It is based on a depiction of the organisational structure of the most important energy markets and also the price mechanisms for crude oil, electricity, natural gas and coal. The analysis also concentrates on the structural change which was occasioned by the first energy crisis in 1973 and accentuated by the second in 1979/80. It is suggested that the causes of desired energy-saving in industry, transport, and in the budgetary and consumer sectors lie in the price developments and the measures taken since 1973 via energy policy. It concludes, against a background of the predicted development, with an outline of current trends in energy policy, which is being increasingly influenced by enviromental questions.

    This study evolves and discusses a thesis which maintains that ecology trends, both in Greece and in the Federal Republic of Germany, are the results of specific processes of social ''modernization'' based on different historical developments. A definition of ''modernization'' is given discussing the ''Fordism'' conception as part of the regulation theory: ''new'' social trends are interpreted as the results of the practice and crisis of Fordistic capitalism which, however, differs depending on its ''metropolitan'' (Germany) and ''peripheral'' (Greece) manifestations. The applicability of the Fordism theorem to Greece is discussed taking into account some political and cultural parameters. (orig.)

    Radiological or nuclear accidents with an overexposure of ionizing radiation are extremely seldom events in Germany. Even physicians in nuclear medicine working with high-dose radiotherapy will very probably never be confronted with real radiation injuries. This is also true for authorized physicians in the medical care for persons with occupational exposures. A smart radiation protection system provides a comprehensive protection even in accidental and unplanned situations.

Only 19 % of the monitored persons received measurable personal doses. The average annual dose of these exposed workers was 0.58 mSv corresponding to 3 % of the annual dose limit of 20 mSv for radiation workers. In total, 7 persons exceeded the annual dose limit of 20 mSv, i.e. two cases per 100,000 monitored persons. The collective dose of the monitored persons decreased to 38.5 Person-Sv, the lowest value since the last fifty years of occupational dose monitoring. In 2010, 45 airlines calculated the route doses of 39,000 members of the aircraft crew personnel by using certified computer programmes for dose calculation and sent the accumulated monthly doses via the Federal Office for Civil Aviation (''Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, LBA'') to the BfS. The collective dose of the aircraft crew personnel is 83 person-Sv, and thus significantly higher than the total collective dose of the workers monitored with personal dosemeters (38.5 person-Sv). The annual average dose of aircraft crew personnel was 2.12 mSv and decreased compared to 2010 (2,30 mSv). In 2011, about 70,000 outside-workers were in possession of a valid radiation passport. The average annual dose of radiation exposed outside-workers was 1.27 mSv and thus twice as high as the average dose of all radiation exposed workers (0.58 mSv). Three from thousand owners of radiation passports were impermissibly in possession of more than one valid radiation passport, after more than one passport had been issued to the same person.

    The roles of the different types of operators are described and particularly pointed out the duties of a municipal system operator to various examples. The implementation of the energy transition will require a fundamental change in behaviour of the customers. The possibilities of the network operator will be essentially limited to the stimulation of this change in behaviour through information and transparency. Attention is drawn to the unique, publicly accessible portal that the production and consumption situation in Hamburg is transparent in real time showing at district level.

  8. Probability assessment for the incidence of extreme events due to the climatic change. Focus Germany; Berechnung der Wahrscheinlichkeiten fuer das Eintreten von Extremereignissen durch Klimaaenderungen. Schwerpunkt Deutschland

    The study on the probability of occurrence of extreme weather events in Germany is based on compiled data covering ground-level temperature, precipitation and wind during the time period 1901 to 2000. The data processing approach is based on two methodologies: a time-gliding extreme value analysis and a structure-oriented time-series analysis. The results show a significant increase of very hot months and at the same time a decrease of extreme cold months within the 20th century. In the time period after 1951 the probability of very high daily maximum temperatures increased for all seasons. Concerning the precipitation the increase of extreme values and higher variabilities are observed for the winter period. The results concerning the wind are not so clear. Summarizing the extreme behavior of temperature and precipitation has shown strong variations during the last century.

    Full Text Available Die erziehungswissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Medien hat in Deutschland eine lange und vielfältige Tradition. In den letzten Jahrzehnten hat sich die Medienpädagogik zu einer eigenständigen akademischen (Teil-Disziplin entwickelt, die in der (Fach-Öffentlichkeit wahrgenommen wird und sich aktiv in aktuelle gesellschaftliche Diskurse einbringt. Sichtbar wird die Etablierung als Fach u. a. daran, dass an einer Reihe von Hochschulen Professuren geschaffen wurden, die für medienpädagogische Studienelemente oder -gänge und/oder Zusatzausbildungen verantwortlich sind. Der gestiegene Stellenwert der Disziplin zeigt sich auch an ihrer Rolle in der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Erziehungswissenschaft, innerhalb derer sie sich von einer «Arbeitsgemeinschaft auf Zeit» (Mitte der 1990er-Jahre zu einer eigenständigen Sektion (seit 2010 entwickelt hat. Angesichts der gegenwärtig zu beobachtenden Entwicklungen im Medienbereich (u. a. Digitalisierung, Globalisierung, Algorithmisierung, deren Folgen für gesellschaftliche und pädagogische Prozesse und Bereiche kaum zu unterschätzen sind, erstaunt es, dass die Medienpädagogik bis heute dazu neigt, Rechtfertigungsstrategien für die eigenen Existenz zu generieren.

Eine Ursache hierfür liegt möglicherweise in der noch immer grossen (und oftmals geradezu zelebrierten Heterogenität des Faches.

In the center of this study are the effects of Internet use and forms of communication, divided into temporal, spatial, contextual and social dimensions. In particular, this study focuses on the effects of Internet usage in the field of partner relationships with respect to gender relations. The question is raised as to the extent to which structures of inequality in the field of "going online" are reproduced. On the basis of the analysis of 12 couples, the integration processes in two countries (Germany and Australia, which differ somewhat in terms of diffusion level are compared. The author argues that qualitatively oriented observation alone can bring the processes of communication and interaction in domestic (everyday life into view—as shown by this study, even if "only" a more exploratory alignment is evident.

    Since the beginning of the nineteen-sixties a review of the past winter period was published each spring. These publications based on weather maps and measurements from different places across the Federal Republic of Germany. Since 1991 further locations from the new German states were added. With the aid of data such as the sum of negative daily mean air temperature from 1st November to 31st March and the amount of days with negative daily mean air temperature, the wintriness and the length of the winter for each season were calculated and compared with long-time statistical values. In addition, a no dimensional so called coldness value was generated to characterize the strength of each winter period with direct comparability between all locations in Germany. All essential information from these papers is presented chronologically.

    CFCs and HCFCs are controlled substances under European Regulation (EC) No. 1005/2009. Article 22 of that Regulation provides that controlled substances contained in certain products (e.g. insulating materials) must be recovered, if technically and economically feasible, or be destroyed without prior recovery. Annex VII lists specific technologies for destruction, recycling or reclamation. In Germany, the use of (H)CFCs in insulating materials has been prohibited since 1995 (R 11 and R 12) and 2000 (R 22). At European level, use of HCFCs (141b and 142b) has been banned since 2002 mainly in the production of extruded polystyrene rigid foam and since 2003 in the production of polyurethane foams. Few data have become available to date on the amounts of (H)CFCs produced and banked up to the time the prohibitions went into effect. The present report therefore provides details on the amounts of (H)CFC-containing insulating materials installed in Germany and estimates the quantities of (H)CFCs still present in them. The study focuses on rigid XPS foam and rigid PU foam used in the construction sector, due to the original objective of the study and the quantitative significance of these foams. XPS insulating foams: XPS panels were assumed to have an average density of 33 kg/m3. Based on annual foam use (volume), density, the market shares of the blowing agents, and blowing agent content in the foam, the annual increase in banked amounts of blowing agents was estimated. Annual fugitive losses were deducted from those banks, specific to the relevant products and blowing agents. As result a bank of approximately 43.7 kt or 15 000 t-ODP was estimated for Germany in 2009. PU insulating foams: Based on annual foam use (volume), density (assumed to be 41 kg/m3 for PU sandwich panels and 33 kg/m3 for other PU products), the market shares of the blowing agents, and blowing agent content in the foam, the annual increase in banked amounts of blowing agents was estimated. Annual fugitive losses (assumed to be between 0.35% and 0.68%) were deducted from those banks, specific to the relevant products and blowing agents. As result a bank of approximately 117.5 kt or 105 000 t-ODP in PU insulating foams was estimated for Germany. The entire ODS bank in insulating materials used in construction in Germany was estimated to amount to about 120 000 t-ODP. The bulk of these ODP quantities (more than three quarters) are concentrated in only a few applications. PU sandwich panels are mainly used to insulate roofs and walls in the construction of industrial buildings as well as for cold-storage buildings. PU insulating panels are mainly used to insulate flat roofs, saddle roofs and floors.

    Suck, A.

    2008-07-01

    Throughout Europe the energy economy faces two major challenges from new governmental regulation, namely regulation for the purposes of climate policy and regulation for the introduction of competition to what used to be monopolistic sectors. With regard to the growing regulatory influence of the European Union the author of this British-German comparative study analyses how diverging structures of governmental organisation and historical paths of development have led to different regulatory approaches to the market introduction of renewable energies and the liberalisation of the power economy. He offers an in-depth analysis of the differences in success the two countries success have had in developing sustainable electricity production systems and establishing competitive structures in the power sector.

    Full Text Available « Erika aimerait tellement avoir une image de la Koch ». Cultures matérielles de la mémoire dans des écoles pour jeunes filles en Autriche et en Allemagne pendant la première moitié du XXe siècle.Le présent article se situe à la croisée de problématiques formulées, d’une part, par l’histoire du genre et les études sur l’auto/biographie et les ego-documents, et d’autre part, par l’histoire de l’amitié et du patronage, l’histoire des émotions ainsi que les recherches sur la culture matérielle. En effet, l’étude d’un ensemble de journaux intimes et de correspondances, tenus par des jeunes filles issues de milieux bourgeois en Autriche et en Allemagne pendant la première moitié du XXe siècle, permet de dégager trois séries d’objets qui circulent entre les élèves mais aussi entre élèves et enseignantes et qui, en matérialisant ainsi les relations affectives (d’amitié, d’admiration, etc. en milieu scolaire, deviennent des objets mémoriels. Ce sont avant tout les cahiers de souvenirs, des lettres ainsi que des portraits photographiques qui s’échangeaient suivant des logiques spécifiques, dont l’article se propose de relever les contraintes, les possibilités et les temporalités propres au parcours scolaire. Les classes, exclusivement féminines, sont considérées comme des ensembles sociaux fortement hiérarchisés mais au sein desquels relations formelles et informelles entre les élèves et les enseignantes s’imbriquaient étroitement. Les objets échangés entre élèves et ceux échangés entre élèves et enseignantes étaient les mêmes ; les modalités des échanges en revanche étaient clairement plus hiérarchiques dans le second cas. Si la nature des faveurs (une lettre, une photo ou un mot écrit sur le cahiers de souvenirs que demandaient les élèves à une camarade ou à une enseignante, était la même, l’enseignante n’y accédait que rarement ; les enseignantes ne collectionnaient pas non plus d’objets destinés à leur rappeler leurs élèves. Ainsi fortement orientée par la personne d’autorité qu’est l’enseignante, la circulation des objets mémoriels contribuait à la re/production des rapports de pouvoir à l’intérieur de l’institution scolaire. Toutefois, les frontières de cette hiérarchie s’avéraient poreuses, lorsque, par exemple, la photographie amateur fit son apparition dans les écoles, une nouvelle technologie qui gagna les milieux bourgeois dès le début du XXe siècle : tant les élèves en possession d’un appareil-photo que leurs enseignantes, puisque souvent prises en photo contre leur gré, voire à leur insu, se retrouvaient ainsi dans une position inédite où le rapport hiérarchique fut, du moins par moments, affecté. L’article s’achève en soulignant l’importance que possède, dans les ego-documents étudiés, le fait de noter, de façon toujours méticuleuse, chacun de ces échanges d’objets effectués avec une élève ou enseignante aimée. Fixer ces gestes par écrit, autre échelon de la culture matérielle de la mémoire, constitue finalement une manière simple de conserver la mémoire des relations affectives tout en étant en mesure d’en maîtriser la nature. Qu’il s’agisse de l’échange d’objets ou de leur description dans les journaux et lettres, ces pratiques, dans leur ensemble, peuvent être comprises comme une manière de renforcer le sentiment d’appartenance au groupe, et surtout comme l’expression d’une identification avec l’institution scolaire.In diesem Text werden Fragestellungen der Geschlechtergeschichte und der Auto/Biographie- und Selbstzeugnisforschung verknüpft mit der Geschichte von Freund/innenschaft und Patronage, der Emotionsgeschichte sowie der kulturwissenschaftlichen Forschung zur materiellen Kultur. Auf der Grundlage von Tagebuchtexten und Korrespondenzen werden jene Objekte identifiziert, die zwischen Schülerinnen sowie zwischen Schülerinnen und Lehrerinnen in österreichischen und deutschen Mädchenklassen in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts als Erinnerungsgegenstände weitergegeben wurden. Konkret handelt es sich dabei um Korrespondenzen, um Poesiealben sowie um Portraitfotografien, deren Austausch jeweils an bestimmte Logiken, Beschränkungen, Potentiale und zeitliche Veränderungen geknüpft war, die in dem Text herausgearbeitet werden. Die Mädchenklassen werden dabei als streng hierarchisch aufgebaute soziale Gefüge verstanden, innerhalb deren die formalen Beziehungen zwischen Schülerinnen und Lehrerinnen sowie die informellen Beziehungen zwischen den Schülerinnen eng miteinander verwoben waren. Obwohl zwischen Schülerinnen und Lehrpersonen die gleichen Gegenstände ausgetauscht wurden, waren die Handlungsmuster ihrer Weitergaben hierarchisch gestaltet. Knapp zusammengefasst gestaltete es sich folgendermaßen: Die Schülerinnen trachteten danach, neben Briefen, Einträge in Poesiealben sowie Fotografien ihrer Kolleginnen dieselben Medien auch von ihren Lehrerinnen zu erhalten, doch die Lehrerinnen erfüllten die Anfragen kaum. Ihrerseits sammelten Lehrerinnen auch keine Erinnerungsgegenstände an Schülerinnen. Indem die Gestaltungen des Austauschs der Erinnerungsgegenstände also fast ausschließlich von den Autoritätspersonen bestimmt wurde, trug diese Form der materiellen Erinnerungskultur zur Re/Produktion der innerschulischen Machtverhältnisse bei. Gleichzeitig zeigten sich darin auch gewisse Brüchigkeit dieser hierarchischen Grenzen – die insbesondere durch die technischen Neuerungen der privaten Amateur/innenfotografie in der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts ermöglicht wurde, die sowohl die Schülerinnen (die einen Fotoapparat besaßen, als auch die Lehrerinnen (die damit geknipst wurden in eine absolut neue Position brachten. Abschließend wird in dem Text auf die Bedeutung verwiesen, die in diesem System das akribische Notieren der Geschenkweitergaben in den Selbstzeugnissen der Schülerinnen hatte. Nicht zuletzt bot sich darin eine Möglichkeit der Konservierung von Erinnerung, die keinen finanziellen Aufwand bedeutete und deren Inhalt von den Schreiberinnen selbst bestimmt werden konnte. Im Allgemeinen interpretiert die Autorin den Wunsch von Schülerinnen, Gegenstände als Erinnerung an ihre Schulkolleginnen und Lehrerinnen zu besitzen und dieses auch in den Tagebüchern und Briefen zu beschreiben, als Ausdruck ihrer Identifikation mit der Institution Schule, der zudem das Gemeinschaftsgefühl der Mädchen untereinander stärken konnte.« Erika would so much love a picture of Koch ». Material Cultures of Remembrance in Austrian and German Girls’ Schools in the First Half of the 20th CenturyThis text links questions of gender history and research on auto/biography and ego documents with the history of friendship and patronage, the history of emotions and a cultural studies’ approach to material culture. Taking diary entries and correspondences as its sources, the article identifies the objects (letters, friendship books and portrait photographs that were passed on as mementoes among students and between students and teachers in Austrian and German girls’ schools during the first half of the 20th century. These material exchanges followed different logics whose constraints and potential changed over time. Girls’ schools are understood as social structures with a strictly hierarchical order, where formal relationships between students and teachers and informal relationships among classmates were closely intertwined. Although the same objects acquired value as memento between friends and teachers, their transfer mirrored the school hierarchy. In brief, the following patterns are observed: the girls tried to obtain letters, friendship book entries and photographs from their peers as well as from their teachers; the latter, however, rarely granted these requests. Teachers did not collect mementoes of their students. Almost exclusively teachers determined the transfer of memento objects; thus, this form of a material remembrance culture contributed to re/produce the school’s internal power structures.At the same time, these hierarchies could be challenged, particularly through the technical innovations of private amateur photography from the 1920s on. This development changed the respective positions of students (who owned a camera and of teachers (whose photographs were taken, at times without their knowing.Finally, this text considers the detailed descriptions of gift transfers in the girls’ ego documents and analyses their significance within this system. In particular, such descriptions gave girls an opportunity to preserve memories, determining the content at their own discretion, without incurring any financial cost.Generally, the author interprets this material culture of remembrance (students’ desire to own objects as mementoes of colleagues and of teachers and students’ descriptions of the objects and their transfer in diaries and letters as an expression of their identification with the school as an institution, which could also strengthen the girls’ sense of community with each other.

  3. Germany without renewables? Electricity costs and security of supply without the supply of renewable energy in 2011-2013. Discussion paper; Deutschland ohne Erneuerbare Energien? Stromkosten und Versorgungssicherheit ohne die Einspeisung Erneuerbarer Energien in den Jahren 2011-2013. Diskussionspapier

    Dillig, Marius; Karl, Juergen

    2014-12-15

    In the years 2010 to 2013, the share of electricity produced from renewable energy of approximately 17 rose to 24%. For this share compared to conventional production results significantly increased electricity costs, which are allocated on the EEG surcharge to the final consumer. In public discussion of these costs, however, often is ignored that the rapid rise of the share of renewable energy lead to an oversupply of power and therefore decreasing electricity costs in total resulted. By the oversupply the trend of a strong increase in the 2000 to 2008 of Electricity prices on the European electricity markets was broken. The aim of this discussion paper is to reconstruct based on historical price data on the spot market of the Leipzig electricity exchange which prices would be set on the electricity market in the years 2011 to 2013 without the power supply from wind and photovoltaic. The analysis shows that electricity prices have increased without wind and sun, for example, for 2013, due to the significantly lower power supply by an average of 5.29 ct / kWh in the ''day-ahead'' trade on the spot market. The cost of the EEG surcharge of approximately EUR 20.4 billion are thus in 2013 savings of conventional electricity of approximately 31.6 billion euros. This saved a total of approximately 11.2 billion euros in 2013 for the German final consumers. About 269 hours of the year, the demand could not be satisfied with the offered maximal power of 2013. This does not automatically mean that in these situations, major faults (''blackouts'') would have been incurred because the consideration Reserve power plants for system services (''control reserve'') are not taken into account and possible additional import electricity. A stable network operation was reliably ensured only by the supply of renewable energy in these situations, however. Due to the massive development of renewable energy is therefore reduced to the final consumer not only the total cost of electricity purchases. Renewable energy against the background of reduced conventional and nuclear power plant capacities increase also much the security of supply at the West German electricity market. [German] In den Jahren 2010 bis 2013 stieg der Anteil der Stromerzeugung aus Erneuerbaren Energien von ca. 17 auf 2 4 %. Fuer diesen Anteil fallen gegenueber konventioneller Erzeugung wesentlich erhoehte Stromerzeugungskosten an, die ueber die EEG - Umlage auf die Endverbraucher umgelegt werden. In der oeffentlichen Diskussion wird bei der Wertung dieser Kosten allerdings vielfach nicht beachtet, dass der rasante Anstieg des Anteils Erneuerbarer Energien zu einem Ueberangebot an Strom und daher zu sinkenden Strompreisen insgesamt fuehrte. Durch das Ueberangebot wurde der Trend der in den Jahren 2000 bis 2008 stark steigenden Strompreise an den Europaeischen Strommaerkten gebrochen. Ziel dieses Diskussionspapiers ist es, auf Grundlage historischer Preisdaten des Spotmarktes der Leipziger Stromboerse zu rekonstruieren, welche Preise sich an der Stromboerse in den Jahren 2011 bis 2013 ohne die Einspeisung aus Wind und Photovoltaik eingestellt haetten. Die Analyse zeigt, dass sich im ''Day - Ahead'' - Handel des Spotmarktes die Strompreise ohne Wind und Sonne beispielsweise fuer das Jahr 2013 aufgrund des erheblich geringeren Stromangebots im Mittel um 5,2 9 ct/kWh erhoeht haetten. Den Kosten der EEG - Umlage von ca. 20,4 Mrd. Euro stehen also in 2013 Einsparungen fuer konventionell erzeugten Strom von ca. 31,6 Mrd. Euro gegenueber. Dies sparte fuer die deutschen Letztverbraucher 2013 insgesamt ca. 11,2 Mrd. Euro ein. Ueber 269 Stunden des Jahres haette die Nachfrage mit der maximal im Jahr 2013 angebotenen Leistung nicht gedeckt werden koennen. Dies bedeutet nicht automatisch, dass in diesen Situationen Grossstoerungen (''Blackouts'') entstanden waeren, da die Betrachtung Reservekraftwerke fuer Systemdienstleistungen (''Regelreserve'') und moegliche zusaetzliche Stromimporte nicht beruecksichtigt. Ein stabiler Netzbetrieb war in diesen Situationen allerdings nur durch die Einspeisung Erneuerbarer Energien sicher gewaehrleistet. Durch den massiven Ausbau Erneuerbarer Energien reduzierten sich also fuer die Letztverbraucher nicht nur die Gesamtkosten des Strombezugs. Erneuerbare Energien erhoehen vor dem Hintergrund reduzierter konventioneller und nuklearer Kraftwerkskapazitaeten auch wesentlich die Versorgungssicherheit am bundesdeutschen Strommarkt.

  4. Reactor safety in industrial nuclear power plants. Developments in a political and technical environment as it prevails in the German Federal Republic; Reaktorsicherheit fuer Leistungskernkraftwerke. Die Entwicklung im politischen und technischen Umfeld der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Laufs, Paul [Stuttgart Univ. (Germany)

    2013-07-01

    The present book describes the development of reactor safety in German light-water nuclear power plants from the beginnings with its multifarious links to model solutions seen in other countries, national and international research projects and accidents in conventional and nuclear power plants. It contains detailed, richly illustrated articles on specific safety techniques such as rupture safety of the pressurised envelope, safeguarding of emergency cooling in the event of accidents involving coolant loss, control technology and protection of the surroundings through containment. The results of national and international risk studies are discussed. It is shown how efforts on the part of industry, government and science to enhance safety resources and improve safety culture have been driven by a civic environment in which the use of nuclear energy has become a central issue of political debate. The book is written in readily comprehensible language and offers a wealth of material for further study.

  5. Technology assessment explained by the example of peaceful uses of nuclear energy in the Federal Republic of Germany. Technologiefolgenabschaetzung am Beispiel der friedlichen Nutzung der Kernenergie in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland

    Mueller-Brandeck, G

    1986-01-01

    The study reviews technology assessment (TA), i.e. the instrument, and the way it has been used and is currently used in the F.R.G., for solving problems induced by technologies. The first part of the study presents the historical background and evolution of nuclear energy policy and discusses the rationality of large-scale technological innovation. The second part deals with the assessment of the nuclear technology, explaining aspects such as social acceptance, the institutional network established for TA, and the 'experiment of parallel research: TA between the two poles of producing an alibi, or creating consensus, assessment of the waste disposal sector, social compatibility, research into problems affecting public acceptance. In conclusion, the study goes into related aspects in connection with nuclear technology assessments, and the social learning process that has set in. (HSCH).

  7. Environmental radioactivity in Germany. Report of the federal installations and the Federal office of radiation protection. Data and evaluation; Umweltradioaktivitaet in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Bericht der Leitstellen des Bundes und des Bundesamtes fuer Strahlenschutz. Stand 2014. Daten und Bewertung

    NONE

    2015-04-15

    This report is a compilation and evaluation of data on radioactivity in the environment and in the vicinity of nuclear facilities in Germany from 2011 to 2013. The mean radiation exposure of the public in Germany was about 4.0 mSv in 2013, of which natural radiation exposure accounted for about 2.1 mSv and man-made radiation exposure for 1.9 mSv. An international work group is in charge of the preparation of quality standards for radon measurements. These latter also serve as a basis to implement the regulations of the new EURATOM Basic Safety Standards Directive. Rice grown within the contaminated zone around Fukushima has been certified as reference material for food monitoring. The trace analysis laboratory for airborne radioactive substances obtained several striking results of measurements performed during the reporting period. Man-made radionuclides from the Fukushima nuclear accident were detectable, too. Assessment of anthropogenic radioactivity also requires thorough measurement of ''natural'' radiation components. Three different measurement areas are used as a reference for calibration. Discharges of radioactive substances into the exit air and wastewaters from nuclear power plants remained far below the authorised limit from 2011 to 2013. There has been a trend of decreasing discharges since 1975. The nine nuclear power plant units in operation at the end of the reporting period had a total capacity of 12.7 GW and accounted for 15 per cent of power generation. The annual mean values provided by the measuring network of the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD; German Meteorological Service) amounted to 0.6 mBq/m{sup 3}, 0.7 mBq/m{sup 3} and 0.7 mBq/m{sup 3} for the total -activity in the air and 58 Bq/m{sup 2}, 38 Bq/m{sup 2}, and 27 Bq/m{sup 2} for the total -activity deposited by precipitation in 2011, 2012 and 2013, respectively. The higher annual value for 2011 is due to the Fukushima releases. The activity concentrations of {sup 85}Kr measured by the BfS in Freiburg remained at about 1.5 Bq/m{sup 3}. The measured activity concentrations of {sup 133}Xe ranged from one to 100 mBq/m{sup 3}, except for the time after the Fukushima disaster. Almost all measured values of {sup 137}Cs concentrations in drinking water and groundwater are below the detection limit The BfS, in cooperation with the PTB, carried out interlaboratory comparisons to determine natural radionuclides in drinking water in 2012 and 2014. In the North Sea sampling was performed every August. The {sup 137}Cs activity concentration ranged from 1.3 Bq/m{sup 3} in the Elbe estuary up to 3.0 Bq/m{sup 3} in the outer German Bight. Compared to this, the {sup 137}Cs activity concentration in the Baltic Sea is higher, ranging from 20 Bq/m{sup 3} in the western part, to 34 Bq/m{sup 3} in the eastern part of the region under study, as a result of the Chernobyl reactor accident. Consequently, the measured {sup 137}Cs activity concentrations in fish are also higher in the Baltic Sea than in the North Sea, reaching up to 11 Bq/kg during the reporting period. Increased activity concentrations are still being measured in fish from inland waters, especially from lakes. In Southern Germany, these have declined from more than 200 Bq/kg moist mass in 1986 down to 2.3 Bq/kg up to now. As a result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, more than 10 PBq of {sup 134}Cs and {sup 137}Cs (1 PBq = 1015Bq) entered the Pacific Ocean every. While soil contamination with {sup 137}Cs is due to the Chernobyl accident, most of the {sup 90}Sr deposits go back to the time of the atmospheric nuclear weapons tests. In feedstuffs, mean values ranging from < 0.1 Bq/kg up to 0.8 Bq/kg were measured for {sup 137}Cs and from 0.1 Bq/kg up to 2.3 Bq/kg for {sup 90}Sr. Contamination of milk constantly remains at a low level. Dietary intake of {sup 137}Cs and 90Sr was 73 Bq and 29 Bq, respectively, on average in 2013. An interlaboratory comparison involving 72 institutions from Germany and neighbouring countries was carried out to determine the levels of {sup 40}K, {sup 89}Sr, {sup 90}Sr, {sup 131}I, Ba-133, {sup 134}Cs, and {sup 137}Cs in raw milk. More than 94 per cent of the measurement results obtained for all nuclides were within the allowed range of dispersion. Apart from {sup 131}I, which was detected in many samples of fly ash/filter dust and is assumed to originate from nuclear medicine applications, {sup 137}Cs from the Chernobyl accident was still detectable. Mean values of 14 Bq/kg of dry matter were measured in clearing sludge in Southern Bavaria. {sup 134}Cs from the Fukushima accident was also detectable temporarily in 2011. As a consequence of the Chernobyl accident, the {sup 137}Cs activity concentration was found to be enhanced in samples of plants used to make pharmaceuticals or tea still in 2013. Buckbean leaves from Poland had 35 Bq/kg of dry matter, and Iceland moss from Russia 15 Bq/kg of dry matter.

  8. Tariff design for communication-capable metering systems in conjunction with time-variant electricity consumption rates; Gestaltung von Tarifen fuer kommunikationsfaehige Messsysteme im Verbund mit zeitvariablen Stromtarifen. Eine empirische Analyse von Praeferenzen privater Stromkunden in Deutschland

    2013-06-15

    In Germany too, communication-capable electricity metering systems (CMS) together with time-based differentiation of kWh-rates for energy consumption are increasingly proliferated among household customers. Nevertheless, empirical evidence with respect to preferences of members of this customer group for the design of CMS tariff elements and of time-variant electricity consumption rates is still scarce. The present study captures such preferences by means of conjoint analysis of data obtained in an online survey of 754 German-speaking adults. Examined CMS tariff elements are a one-off installation fee and monthly recurring use charges. The studied characteristics of time-based rates are the number of time/tariff blocks, the maximum spread between kWh-rates for different time windows and the adaptability/predictability of kWh-rates. Most respondents judged multidimensional CMS and electricity consumption tariff offerings mainly in light of the CMS tariff characteristics. The vast majority of the participants perceived kWh-rates, which may change with a minimum lead time of one day as reducing the benefit of CMS and consumption tariff bundles. Tariff preferences on the one hand were only rarely significantly related to customers' socio-demographic and electricity procurement characteristics as well as their CMS-related expectations/assessments on the other. The willingness to accept CMS-related one-off installation and recurring service charges as well as the propensity to opt for time-dependent electricity consumption tariff variants differing clearly from non-differentiated electricity price schemes appear to be positively affected by customers' practical application experience with CMS and time-variant electricity consumption rates. Conclusions are drawn for energy suppliers seeking to propagate CMS-based time-variant tariffs among household customers in Germany and for future scholarly research. (orig.)

  9. H.C. Schumacher - Center of international communication in astronomy and mediator betwen Denmark an Germany. (German Title: H.C. Schumacher - Zentrum der internationalen Kommunikation in der Astronomie und Mittler zwischen Dänemark und Deutschland)

    Hamel, Jürgen

    As the editor of the ``Astronomische Nachrichten'', H.C. Schumacher played an outstanding role among the astronomers of the first half of the 19th century. Altona, his place of activity, belonged to the kingdom of Denmark. Both the foundation of the ``Astronomische Nachrichten'' and its existence depended for several decades on the support by the Danish kings and high-ranking officials at the Copenhagen court. This paper analyses these questions on the basis of previously unused archival sources and discusses also Schumacher's life and his relations to the royal dynasty.

    Full Text Available [english] One of the main hallmarks of reform initiatives in undergraduate medical education is the introduction in the curricula of teaching communication and social skills. In this respect, new educational goals are to be defined and appropriate teaching methods as well as adequate examination procedures have to be developed. Following the publication of a German Consensus Statement (Basel Consensus Statement we report the results of a survey of 32 medical curricula in German-speaking countries, conducted from January 2008 to February 2009. In order to examine the status quo of teaching methods, a structured questionnaire was applied. It surveys educational goals, teaching methods, examination procedures, lecturers’ qualifications, time frames, etc. Results: It turns out that structural conditions and their implementation vary considerably, and that planning rarely is based on educational goals or on research in this field. [german] Eines der Merkmale reformierter medizinischer Studiengänge ist die Einführung des Unterrichts kommunikativer und sozialer Kompetenzen. In diesem Zusammenhang waren und sind Lernziele zu definieren, adäquate Unterrichtsmethoden sowie Standards und Überprüfungsverfahren zu entwickeln. Mit einiger Verspätung gegenüber dem angloamerikanischen Raum setzte diese Entwicklung auch in Europa ein. Erst jüngst erfolgte ein Versuch, auch für den deutschsprachigen Raum Standards zu erarbeiten. Wir berichten über die Ergebnisse einer Erhebung des Status quo des Unterrichts in kommunikativen Kompetenzen an 32 deutschsprachigen medizinischen Studiengängen (bzw. Fakultäten, welche im Zeitraum von Jänner 2008 bis Februar 2009 durchgeführt wurde. Die Erhebung wurde mittels strukturiertem Fragebogen durchgeführt. Dieser bildet u.a. longitudinale Struktur und zeitlichen Umfang, Lernziele, Methodik, Didaktik, Überprüfungsmethoden und Qualifikation der Lehrenden ab. Ergebnisse: Die Heterogenität der Unterrichtsstruktur ist beträchtlich. Wir gewinnen den Eindruck, dass derzeit die Planung nach sehr unterschiedlichen Überlegungen erfolgt und dass dabei selten lernzielorientiert und literaturbasiert vorgegangen wird.

    2012-07-01

    It is a core problem of the energy revolution: the fluctuating yields from renewable energy sources have to be integrated into the electricity supply without endangering its safety and economic feasibility. Here the Deutsche Bahn railway company provides a prime example: by 2020, the company intends to draw more than one third of the 12 billion kilowatthours it consumes each year from green electricity. Researchers have calculated that doubling the green electricity used today will increase the electricity costs by around five per cent. The German railway power grid is distinguished, however, by many unique features. (orig.)

    The nuclear consequences of the earthquake disaster in Japan represent a profound change for the peaceful use of nuclear power, also in Germany. In the light of these events, the German Federal Government, together with the Prime Ministers of the Laender in which NPPs are operated had reviewed the safety of all German NPPs by the German Reactor Safety Commission in close collaboration with the competent nuclear regulatory authorities of the Laender and, through an Ethics Commission on ''Secure Energy Supply'', also started a dialogue among the German society on the risks involved in the use of nuclear power and on the possibility of an accelerated transition to the age of renewable energies. Taking into account the results of the Reactor Safety Commission and the Ethics Commission on ''Secure Energy Supply'' as well as the absolute priority of nuclear safety, the Federal Government decided to terminate the use of nuclear power at the earliest possible date. The amendments in the Atomic Energy Act that went into force in August 2011 induce the progressive abandonment of electricity generation by NPPs in Germany by the end of 2022 at the latest. Germany took an active part in the assessment of the robustness of the NPPs in Europe (EU stress test) under the leadership of the European Nuclear Safety Regulators Group (ENSREG). The results of these reviews show that the German plants partly have considerable safety margins and that additional precautionary measures have been taken in order to prevent (preventive measures) or limit (mitigative measures) the effects of the beyond-design-basis events considered in the reviews. Based on the results of the plant-specific reviews, the RSK has derived first recommendations for further examinations. Some plant-specific improvement measures are already in implementation or planned. The results of the EU stress test will be taken into account in future RSK recommendations. On behalf of the BMU, the Gesellschaft fuer Anlagen- und Reaktorsicherheit (GRS) prepared an Information Notice on the conclusions drawn from the Fukushima accident for German NPPs. The recommendations also include measures for a further improvement of the control of beyonddesign- basis events. The recommendations essentially concern the electrical energy supply, residual-heat removal, and accident management procedures. As regards emergency preparedness measures, the Federal Environment Ministry has initiated a working group of the Commission on Radiological Protection (in Germany abbreviated as SSK) that carries out a review of the German regulations for emergency preparedness on the basis of the experience feedback from the Fukushima accident. Corresponding changes and measures will be defined once the results are available.

    Based on the status of science and technology and under consideration of international repository concepts the fundamental methodology for safety demonstration for a high-level radioactive waste final repository in clay formations Germany was developed. Basic elements of the safety concept are the geological site description and the geo-scientific long-term prognosis on future performance. Another important section is the closure and sealing concept for the mine shafts. In the frame of the project the fundamental elements were developed and documented for model regions in northern and southern Germany. Three independent safety proofs have to be performed: the demonstration of the geological barrier integrity (clay), the demonstration of the geo-technical barrier system integrity - i.e. closure constructions and backfilling of the shafts, and the radiological demonstration that the radionuclide release in the area is lower than the respective limiting value.

    The waste incineration market is in a constant movement: Competitive pressure forces the plant operators to optimize their operation efficiency as competing treatment technologies jeopardize the access to the combustibles and legal requirements of the energy efficiency and emission limits increase the demand of technical improvements. These developments will influence the market of retrofit and maintenance of waste incineration plants. As the majority of the current waste incineration plants in Germany, Austria and Switzerland was built before 1990 most of the plants or their components, despite of continuous maintenance, are outdated. Retrofit can improve the plant's efficiency und leads to a production of more energy without additional combustibles or emissions. (orig.)

  6. Role of storage technologies to integrate high shares of renewable electricity generation into the electricity system of Germany. Simulation and optimization; Rolle und Bedeutung der Stromspeicher bei hohen Anteilen erneuerbarer Energien in Deutschland. Speichersimulation und Betriebsoptimierung

    Hartmann, Niklas

    2013-06-13

    The share of renewable electricity generation of gross electricity consumption in Germany increased from 6.8 % to about 20 % during the years of 2000 and 2011. This share will increase even more in the future. The greater part of the renewable electricity generation is characterized by significant fluctuations, which can only be planned to a limited extent. Hence, the electricity system in Germany faces the challenge to integrate an increasing amount of fluctuating renewable electricity generation. Additionally the system stability needs to be ensured, despite a decreasing capacity in conventional power plants. One option to support the integration of large amounts of renewable electricity generation and to enhance system stability is the deployment of storage technologies. The aim of this research was to analyze the role of storage technologies to integrate high shares of renewable electricity generation into the electricity system of Germany. To achieve this aim, adiabatic compressed air energy storage, diabatic compressed air energy storage and mobile battery storage systems were simulated and compared with a pumped hydro storage as the reference storage system. Key characteristics of these storage systems were modeled within a fundamental stochastic unit commitment model of the German power markets (Joint-Market-Model) in order to analyze the effect of the implementation of these storage systems on the overall cost of the electricity system. Additionally, the operation of the storages in an electricity system with high shares of renewable energy was evaluated. The results show that the integration of large shares of renewable electricity generation into the grid can only be achieved with a substantial implementation of storage systems. To integrate 50 % of renewable energy, a storage power of 27 GW and storage capacity of 245 GWh is needed. For a renewable energy share of 80 %, a storage power of 78 GW and a storage capacity of 6.3 TWh are necessary. A 100 % renewable energy share requires a storage power of 139 GW and a storage capacity of 83 TWh. This also requires a significant capital expenditure. One option to reduce the overall system costs without compromising the system stability is to allow ''curtailment'' of wind and solar power. Curtailment is hereby only used, if it leads to lower operating costs of the system. For 50 % share of renewable energy the storage power can be reduced from 27 GW to almost 11 GW at constant storage capacity. The required storage capacity is reduced from 6.3 TWh to 5.4 TWh and the storage power from 78 GW to 66 GW for a share of 80 % of renewable energy. For a share of 100 % of renewable energy, the requirement of storage capacity is reduced from 83 TWh to 57 TWh and of storage power from 139 GW to 106 GW. In all assessments, where curtailment is allowed, the system costs are reduced. With this procedure only a minor share of renewable electricity generation (<1 %) is hereby not integrated into the grid. Furthermore, in this research the effects of different charging strategies of electric vehicles are analyzed. An uncontrolled charging, where the electric vehicles are charged at the instant they are connected to the grid is compared with a controlled charging (Vehicle-to-grid, V2G), where the time of charging can be delayed due to economic reasons until the starting time of the next trip. However, the controlled charging strategy of electric vehicles was found to have very little positive effect on the system costs. In a year with low wind and solar supply (reduced wind and solar supply by 15 %), the system stability is not given for a share of renewable electricity generation of 80 % and 100 %. To ensure the system stability for very high shares of renewable electricity generation, the power plant portfolio needs to be determined based on a load curve with yearly low wind and solar supply.

    The report covers the following chapters: executive summary: the eight most important measures for climate protection; introduction: why should Germany reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 40% until 2020? Which framework requirements and assumptions are the basis for the Federal environmental Agency assessment? How should the required CO{sub 2} emission reduction be distributed to different sections? Which cost efficient measures can be reached in Germany: energy management, industry, households and business, traffic? Which instruments should be used in Germany? Conclusion: the 40% aim is reachable, but only with a resolute climate and energy policy.

    Purpose: The aim of this study was the health economics analysis of MR imaging in the preoperative staging of patients with prostate carcinoma (PCa). Materials and Methods: The health economics analysis consisted of the following steps: modeling, determination of probabilities and parameters based on a detailed literature search, evaluation using the averages of the parameters, and sensitivity analyses of the results over the ranges of values. We performed a cost-utility analysis from health insurance's perspective for Austria and Germany. The population under investigation included patients with confirmed PCa. The alternative was a decision for therapy with or without staging using MR imaging. A localized PCa was treated by prostatectomy and locally advanced PCa by radiation/hormone therapy. The result parameters were quality adjusted life years (QALYs) and costs per patient. Results: The evaluation showed that MR imaging is useful regarding costs and utilities prior to radical prostatectomy which is expensive and may be associated with serious clinical consequences. The costs per patient were lower by Euro 2635 and the utilities were higher by 0.099 QALYs. The strategy without MR imaging for staging was dominated by the strategy using MR imaging for staging in the evaluation using the base values and in almost all sensitivity analyses. Conclusion: For the parameters used and almost all scenarios of the sensitivity analysis, our decision-analytic model revealed a higher cost-utility ratio for the strategy using MR imaging for the staging of PCa.

  10. The judgement of the Federal Constitutional Court on the nuclear phase-out in Germany. Every light hat its shadow; Das Urteil des BVerfG zum Atomausstieg in Deutschland. Licht und Schatten

    Leidinger, Tobias [Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft, Duesseldorf (Germany)

    2017-01-15

    The 13th amendment of the German Atomic Energy Act (AtG) was a direct result of the accident in Fukushima in March 2011. As a result, not only the provisional (three-month) shutdown of the eight nuclear power plants immediately shut down after the accident finally passed the parliament, but fixed shutdown times were also decided for the remaining nine NPP's. This was both an increase of the AtG amendment of 2002 and the extension of the NPP licenses decided a few months earlier. Nuclear energy should therefore continue to serve as a ''bridge technology'' within the framework of the Federal Government's energy concept for a longer period. On 6 December 2016 the Federal Constitutional Court (BVerfG) has decided that the act on the accelerated phasing-out of nuclear energy in Germany is partly unconstitutional. The judgment is clear on a whole series of legal issues. At the same time, it raises new questions with a view to the final clarification of the compensation.

  11. Energy policy in Germany upon Fukushima. The impact of the nuclear accident on the German energy policy; Energiepolitik in Deutschland nach Fukushima. Der Einfluss des Atomungluecks auf die deutsche Energiepolitik

    Wellnhofer, Martin

    2012-11-01

    The author of the book under consideration analyzes the media reports of the daily newspapers ''Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung'', ''Sueddeutsche Zeitung'' and ''Die Zeit'' with respect to the influence of the nuclear accident in Fukushima on the German energy policy. The author examines the background to the current energy policy debate. A holistic approach is used to understand the political decisions. The holistic approach describes the energy policy discourse since the beginning of the planned nuclear phase-out in the year 1998. Thus, the holistic approach is a prerequisite for a comparative analysis of the discourses.

    Liquid and gaseous releases of {sup 129}I from European reprocessing plants result in a continuous accumulation in the environment. Aim of the project was to quantify the inventories and input and discharges of {sup 127}I and {sup 129}I of different environmental compartments all over Germany. Aerosol, rainwater and river water samples were collected continuously over a period of 2 years. Additionally, soil samples were collected at 30 different sampling sites. For {sup 127}I no correlation of concentration or deposition rates and distance of sampling sites from the North Sea was found for aerosol and precipitation samples, whereas the results for {sup 129}I showed decreasing values with increasing distance from the coast. Also for {sup 129}I inventories of soils a trend to decrease could be observed from the northern to the southern and from the western to the eastern part of the country. However, there is a close relationship between iodine and soil properties. Comparison of results with earlier investigations does not show a current increase of isotopic ratios and deposition rates. Thus, at present {sup 129}I concentrations and isotopic ratios do not pose the risk of an increased thyroid dose for the public.

  13. Induced calcite precipitation for the restoration of stratified hardwater lakes: The case of Lake Schmaler Luzin (North-East Germany); Induzierte Calcitfaellung zur Restaurierung eutropher Seen am Beispiel des Schmalen Luzins (Nord-Ost-Deutschland)

    Artificially induced calcite precipitation combined with deep water aeration has been tested as a possible technology for lake restoration. A pilot equipment for whole lake experiments has been developed for the restoration of the Lake Schmaler Luzin on the basis of enclosure experiments. The hypolimnetic calcite precipitation was induced by hypolimnetic addition of Ca(OH){sub 2}. In 1996 the first experiments were aimed at checking the conditions for artificially induced hypolimnetic calcite precipitation and their effectiveness on phosphorus elimination. 140 t Ca(OH){sub 2} and 416 000 m{sup 3} air were added in the hypolimnion during two cycles of these experiments, each lasting one month. This led to an increase of the pH value in the hypolimnion from 7.2 to 9.1, above the sediment (2-3 cm) from 7.2 to 8.2 and in the upper layers of sediments from 7.4 to 8.6. The chemical equilibrium was shifted towards the calcite and we observed hypolimnetic calcite precipitations. In 1996 the hypolimnetic aeration was performed with the aim of homogenisation of the hypolimnion. As expected the amount of added air was not enough to make the whole hypolimnion aerobic during the summer stagnation. The reduction of the total and dissolved phosphorus concentration in the hypolimnion and at the sediment-water interface in comparison to the values of the year before indicated the occurence of phosphorus coprecipitation with calcite. The concentration of the soluble reactive phosphorus above the sediment decreased from 0.31 mgl{sup -1} in 1995 (26.07.) to 0.04 mgl{sup -1} in 1996 (01.08.). (orig.) [Deutsch] Basirend auf den Ergebnissen von Enclosureversuchen wurde 1995/96 eine Pilotanlage zur Restaurierung geschichteter eutrophierter und kalkreicher Seen entwickelt. Die Pilotanlage kombiniert die hypolimnische Ca(OH){sub 2}-Zugabe mit einer Tiefenwasserbelueftung. Die Anlage hat 1996 ihren Betrieb aufgenommen und wird zur Restaurierung des ehemals oligotrophen, jetzt eutrophen Schmalen Luzin (Feldberger Seengebiet, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) eingesetzt. Im ersten Erprobungsjahr ging es schwerpunktmaessig um die Induzierung der Calcitfaellung im Hypolimnion und die Untersuchung ihrer Wirksamkeit auf die P-Elimination unter Sauerstoffmangel. Waehrend der zwei ca. einmonatigen Betriebszyklen im Zeitraum vom 26.06.1996 bis 05.10.1996 wurden 140 t Ca(OH){sub 2} und 416 000 m{sup 3} Luft in das Hypolimnion des Carwitzer Beckens (Schmaler Luzin) eingebracht. Die pH-Werte im Hypolimnion wurden von 7,2 auf bis zu 9,1, ueber dem Sediment (2-3 cm) von 7,2 bis 8,2 und in den oberen Sedimentschichten von 7,4 auf bis zu 8,6 angehoben. Dadurch wurde das Kalk-Kohlensaeure-Gleichgewicht zum Carbonat hin verschoben, es kam zu Calcitfaellungen im Hypolimnion. Wie zu erwarten war, reichte die Betriebsdauer der Tiefenwasserbelueftung und die eingetragene Sauerstoffmenge nicht aus, um im gesamten Hypolimnion oxische Bedingungen herzustellen. Im unteren Bereich des Hypolimnions ergaben sich auch nach den Betriebszyklen anoxische Verhaeltnisse. Trotzdem kam es zu einer Phosphorabnahme. Ueber die kuenstlich ausgeloeste Calcitpraezipitation erfolgte eine Phosphor-Mitfaellung. Diese Phosphor-Mitfaellung wurde durch die Abnahme von geloestem reaktivem Phosphor und Gesamtphosphor sowohl im hypolimnischen Wasser als auch an der Sediment-Wasser-Kontaktzone belegt. Die Konzentration an geloestem reaktivem Phosphor ueber dem Sediment (2-3 cm) lag im Sommer 1996 mit 0,04 mgl{sup -1} um fast eine Zehnerpotenz niedriger als 1995 (0,31 mgl{sup -1}). (orig.)

    The contribution under consideration reports on projections for emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases in Germany for the period to 2050. The scenarios include a business-as-usual scenario scenario (BAU), a scenario 'with measures' under consideration of the EU F-Gas Regulation 842/2006 or the Chemicals Climate Protection Ordinance (MM) and a scenario 'with additional measures' (MWM). In the BAU scenario, emission peaks of about 20 MT CO{sub 2} eq. will be reached at 2020 and 2050. Compared to the BAU scenario, the MM scenario shows potentials for emissions savings by approximately 50 %. In the MWM scenario the emission of F-gases will be reduced from 2020 and stagnate from 2030 at a level of 1.2 MT CO{sub 2} eq. until the final disposal of old systems.

    Against the background of the directive on energy end-use efficiency and energy services (2006/32/EC, ESD) the Federal Government of Germany presented a national energy efficiency action plan (NEEAP) in September 2007. From the German Federal perspective there is a need for the development of a nationwide ESD monitoring system, providing an coherent procedure to verify the energy savings achieved. For this purpose, the quality of the procedure must be ensured by suitable regulations and measures. Based on the project EMEEES (Evaluation and Monitoring for the EU Directive on Energy End-Use Efficiency and Energy Services), the report develops methods especially for bottom up methods to prove which energy savings can be achieved under the implementation of the German NEEAP. The main focus of the report is the development of suitable bottom-up methods by which can calculate the total savings as well as additional savings can be calculated. Furthermore, the equations provided in this report also allows the calculation of so called early energy savings achieved prior to 2008. (orig.)

    Living only is more than one roof over the head. It is more than only one fundamental requirement. The dwelling and the residential environment are forming, identity-donating and stand for meeting, spare time and environment for the humans at the same time. At the beginning of the 21st century, the German management of the housing sector faces four mega trends: the demographic development, the increasing social spreading of the society, the climatic protection politics and energy efficiency politics as well as the increasing plurality of lifestyles and variety of living concepts.

    The aim of both projects was a methodological development of the MONERIS model to quantify emissions from point and diffuse sources into Germany's surface waters. Both projects are based on consistent sub-basins and the according basic data as well as homogenous calculation algorithms that are adapted to the specifications of each substance group. The research encompasses Germany's large river basins as well as their catchment areas outside Germany and in total covers an area of 650,000 km{sup 2}. This was divided into 3456 analytical units (2759 of those in Germany), the average catchment areas being 190 km{sup 2} (135 km{sup 2} in Germany). All input data was collected and preprocessed with the highest spatial and temporal resolution possible based on the detailed topology. The modelling was performed in individual annual steps for the period between 1983-2005. For the evaluation of the temporal trends the data was aggregated for the periods 1983-1987 (''1985''), 1993-1997 (''1995''), 1998-2002 (''2000'') and 2003-2005 (''2005'') to soften the impact of hydrological influences. The basic data and model results for all sub-basins, years and substance groups of both projects were merged into one database. Additionally, a web-based graphical user interface was developed to visualise the emissions for any area aggregation can be visualised. The completion of both projects delivered for the first time ever homogenous instruments that can identify the most important sources and contamination hotspots for different relevant substance groups in larger river basins which can then serve as a basis for further analyses to achieve efficient measures to reduce pollution.

    1998-04-01

    The ``Agenda 21`` was decided at Rio de Janeiro in June 1992. It is to provide a guideline for political action of all parties concerned in the 21st century. Its key concept, ``sustainable develoment``, is a multi-faceted concept which attempts to coordinate ecological, economic and social needs on a medium to long-term basis. Changes in consumption patterns are of central importance. The article goes into detail about these and also about the problems caused by energy and power supply as it is today. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Juni 1992 wurde in Rio de Janeiro die sogenannten `Agenda 21` als Leitfaden fuer das im 21. Jahrhundert erforderliche Handeln aller Akteure verabschiedet. Im Zentrum dieses Aktionsprogramms steht der schillernde Begriff `sustainable development`. In vierzig Kapiteln, die sich mit allen gesellschaftlichen Gruppen und allen Problemfeldern moderner Gesellschaften auseinandersetzen, wird versucht, `nachhaltige Entwicklung` zu definieren und Wege aufzuzeigen, wie oekologische, oekonomische und gesellschaftliche Anliegen mittel- bis langfristig auf einen Nenner gebracht werden koennen. Von zentraler Bedeutung ist dabei die Frage der Veraenderung der Konsumgewohnheiten. Mit diesem Thema wird ein grosser Teil der in Rio alle Verhandlungen bestimmenden Anliegen angesprochen. Es verwundert nicht, dass auch in diesem Zusammenhang die von der heutigen Energieversorgung verursachten Probleme im Vordergrund stehen. (orig.)

    A network of 7 forest stations was maintained during the period of 1982-1985. The investigation included the evaluation of the dry and wet deposition of the following compounds: H/sup +/, SO/sub 4//sup 2-/, NO/sub 3//sup -/, Cl/sup -/, Pb, Mn, Fe, Cd, Na, K, Ca and Mg. During a certain period of time also the compounds Al, Cu, Cr and NH/sub 4//sup +/ were analyzed. Measurements of the aerosols and bulk deposition in different levels of the forest stands give information about the influence of spruce stands on the distribution of deposition. Detailed investigation on the composition of fogwater show the importance of fog with respect to the atmospheric input into forest ecosystems. Investigations of ozone at stations in the Taunus area show increasing concentrations with increasing altitudes. The sudden release of accumulated pollutants in snow appearing in the spring time during the thaw is shown. Sequential rain sampling at stations at different altitudes gives information about the contribution of 'rain-out' and 'wash-out'-processes with respect of the chemical composition of the rain.

    On February 26th, 2013 the patient law became effective in Germany. Goal of the lawmakers was a most authoritative case law for liability of malpractice and to improve enforcement of the rights of the patients. The following article contains several examples detailing legal situation. By no means should these discourage those persons who treat patients. Rather should they be sensitized to to various aspects of this increasingly important field of law. To identify relevant sources according to judicial standard research was conducted including first- and second selection. Goal was the identification of jurisdiction, literature and other various analyses that all deal with liability of malpractice and patient law within the field of Interventional Radiology - with particular focus on transarterial chemoembolization of the liver and related procedures. In summary, 89 different sources were included and analyzed. The individual who treats a patient is liable for an error in treatment if it causes injury to life, the body or the patient's health. Independent of the error in treatment the individual providing medical care is liable for mistakes made in the context of obtaining informed consent. Prerequisite is the presence of an error made when obtaining informed consent and its causality for the patient's consent for the treatment. Without an effective consent the treatment is considered illegal whether it was free of treatment error or not. The new patient law does not cause material change of the German liability of malpractice law.

    The climatic change is a fact. The contribution of the fourth IPCC (international panel on climate change) report is covered in the first chapter of the volume, describing the increase of anthropogenic greenhouse gas production during the last centuries, possible mitigation strategies, unavoidable consequences, macroeconomic costs for stabilizing the greenhouse gas emissions and possibilities of renewable energy resources. The second chapter is the Stern report 2006 on the existing scientific literature concerning the climatic change and its consequences, risk analyses and cost estimations for greenhouse gas reduction strategies on the one hand and costs of the possibly catastrophic consequences of the climate change on the other hand. The third chapter is the pilot study of the Federal Ministry of environment, nature conservation and nuclear safety 2007/2008. The fourth chapter is the contribution of the scientific commission of the Federal government on global environmental changes (WBGU) no 5: new stimuli for the climate policy: chances of the German double presidency. The fifth chapter covers the Meseberg topics - the integrated energy and climate program (IEKP) followed by a discussion of the described contributions.

    From 2030, primary energy consumption in Germany will decrease significantly as a result to better energy efficiency. Together with the use of energy sources with lower CO2 emissions, this will have a positive effect on the German climate balance. CO2 emissions of the power generation sector will be reduced by more than 40 percent by 2030. Petroleum and natural gas will continue to cover most of Germany's energy demand during the next 20 years. Natural gas, the least polluting of all fossil fuels, will ave a central role in power generation. Biogas will get greater importance; it is already being used together with natural gas in cogeneration plants. In all, renewable energy sources will cover about 20 percent of the total power generation in Germany by 2030. Emissions of the transportation sector will be reduced as well. Today's motor cars with their internal combustion engines have considerable potential for efficiency improvement. If this potential is used, a greater reduction of CO2 emissions will be possible than with electric-powered vehicles.

  5. Legal bases of resource policy in the Federal Republic of Germany. A contribution towards law-related geography. Die rechtlichen Grundlagen der Ressourcenpolitik in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Ein Beitrag zur Rechtsgeographie

    Graafen, R

    1983-01-01

    This work from the field of law-related geography deals with the legal regulations issued in the framework of resource policy and with their territorial effects. One of the purpose of law-related geography is to present those legal regulations which bear on territory in a manner easy to survey. The different legal forms to be considered (law, legal regulation, administrative regulation, statutes, law of the (European Community etc.) provide a means of approach. From the peculiarities of the individual legal forms it is possible to tell for instance in how far they possess validity as against citizens or only as against authorities, in how far they are cogent or only constitute recommendations, or whether citizens are allowed to participate in the precise definition of regulations, what standard of European Community law are immediately applied in the Federal Republic of Germany, or what the order of priority of legal regulations is. The study investigates above all the territory-related consequences of regional and land use planning, the federal mining law, energy policy with regard to black coal, brown coal, petroleum and naturel gas, of the planning of power plans sites, local supply concepts, transport infra-structure policy, the federal immission protection law and of regulations for the protection of nature or governing forest and water management.

    In the year 2006, the utilization of fossil fuels in the power economy in Germany results in CO{sub 2} emissions of 366 million tons. This corresponds to 43.4 % of the entire CO{sub 2} emissions in Germany. In order to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide at fossil-fuelled power stations significantly, short term retrofits of the plants are to be considered for the separation and storage of CO{sub 2}. From the perspective of the power production, the downstream absorption of CO{sub 2} with monoethanolamine has several advantages: (a) Successful employment of the amine-wash in other industrial's applications; (b) Conventional operation of the power station qualitatively remains unchanged; (c) The downstream separation is the only option for the separation of CO{sub 2} at existing power stations. However, the separation of carbon dioxide results in further material flows and energy flows by means of the absorption in monoethanolamine. In the contribution under consideration, the authors analyze the effects of the absorption of CO{sub 2} in mono ethanol amine on an individual power station as well as on the emissions of the power economy in Germany.

[German] Im Rahmen des Vorhabens wurde an den laufenden Arbeiten im Task II des 'Photovoltaic Power System Programme' (PVPS) der Internationalen Energieagentur (IEA) wesentlich mitgewirkt. Es ist eine zentrale Aufgabe des Task II, das Wissen ueber die Auslegung und das Betriebsverhalten von Photovoltaik(PV)-Systemen zu verbreiten und durch Ansprache geeigneter Zielgruppen die Markteinfuehrung der PV-Technologie voranzutreiben. Dabei stuetzt sich das Vorhaben auf die Erstellung und Aktualisierung einer dezentralen Datenbank, in der sowohl detaillierte Anlagedaten von realisierten PV-Anlagen als auch monatsaufgeloeste Betriebsergebnisse der vermessenen PV-Systeme gesammelt und aufbereitet werden. Ziel der Arbeiten ist es, Informationen ueber Energieertraege, Zuverlaessigkeit und Kosten von verschiedenen PV-Systemen aus der ganzen Welt bereitzustellen und Richtlinien fuer optimale PV-Anlagen in Bezug auf ihr Betriebsverhalten und ihre Auslegung zu entwickeln. Die dezentrale Datenbank auf PC-Basis wurde im ISFH erstellt und konfiguriert. Das Datenbankprogramm besteht aus dem Programm 'PVbase' und dem Programm 'PVreport'. Umfangreiche Softwarewerkzeuge erlauben die Selektion von PV-Anlagen, die graphische und statistische Aufarbeitung der relevanten Daten von PV-Anlagen und den Export von berechneten Jahresmittelwerten. Die Datenbank enthaelt derzeit mehr als 260 PV-Anlagen mit monatlichen Datensaetzen von ueber 600 Betriebsjahren. Neben den allgemeinen Informationen sind Angaben ueber die Art der PV-Anlage (Netzverbund, Insel- oder Hybridanlage), ihre Montageart, ihre verwendeten Komponenten und oekonomische Daten enthalten. Die Datenbank umfasst einen grossen Anteil weltweit realisierter PV-Anlagen mit installierter Messdatenerfassung. Der Nutzen der kontinuierlich verbesserten Datenbank liegt in der Verbreitung von Informationen

    for half of the substances which are found in the plans of Denmark, Austria, South Korea and Germany. The plans of New Zealand and Switzerland nearly do not contain any specifications concerning emissions. Some of the measures suggested are very extensive and worked out differentiatedly, particularly those problems which are related with climate gas and transport (Netherlands, Austria). In other plans, however, the measures are worked out very generally (e.g., New Zealand) or only exemplary (Switzerland). Moreover, aims and measures referring to the problems of pesticides, water, soil, waste and noise are touched. 'Eco-taxes' as ecopolitical stipulations are of crucial importance within the Danish, Dutch and Austrian environmental plan, as well as in the plan of Switzerland. Also South-Korea plans extensive environmental taxes. Germany and New Zealand have mentioned this topic only marginally.

    This report presents the 2008 data on the German emissions of the fluorinated greenhouse gases HFCs, PFCs, and SF{sub 6} (F-gases) to be entered into the ZSE (Centralised System of Emissions at the German Environmental Agency). The overall emissions of HFCs, PFCs, and SF6 have doubled from 1995 to 2008, from 3,241 to 7,202 metric tons. In terms of global warming, the emissions in 2008 exceeded again the 1995 level, with 18.0 vs. 15.5 million tons CO{sub 2} equivalent. Against the previous your, the emissions in metric units have decreased the first time since 1995, however the global warming emissions, have increased by further 0.7 million t CO{sub 2} equivalent. PFC emissions remained in 2008 at the 2007 level although they show a constant down trend from 1995 onwards. Emissions of SF6, which had decreased before 2002, are increasing again from 2003/04. HFC emissions, which continue rising since 1995, stopped growing in 2008 due to a consumption drop in the foam sector. They represent almost two thirds of the total German F-gas emissions. However, only refrigeration and air conditioning are still substantial applications of HFCs, while in the formerly large application sectors of CFCs and HCFCs, such as hard foam, fire extinguishers, and aerosols, natural fluids are being used widely, today. In stationary refrigeration and mobile air conditioning, the upward trend in HFCs emissions was still ongoing in 2008. Section I of this report presents the F-gas emissions data for 2008, in addition to those in 1995, 2000, 2004, and 2007. In section II the data sources of survey are documented. Section III presents the F-gas emissions 1995 - 2008 in detailed tables, by individual sectors. (orig.)

    This article looks at areas in the Lower Saxony basis of North-West Germany where the carbonate of the 2nd Zechstein subdivision cycle (Ca2) was tectonically removed from its stratigraphic compound and is found in several stacks elsewhere. Modern 3D seismology and deep drillings were evaluated and tectonic models were developed which could be compared with examples from other saline provinces. This revealed new aspects of exploration for sour natural gas in the Zechstein subdivision (orig.). [Deutsch] Der Artikel behandelt Bereiche innerhalb des Niedersaechsischen Beckens von Nordwestdeutschland, wo das Karbonat des 2. Zechstein-Zyklus (Ca2) tektonisch aus seinem stratigraphischen Verband geloest wurde und an anderer Stelle mehrfach uebereinander gestapelt anzutreffen ist. Hierzu wurden moderne 3D Seismik sowie Tiefbohrungen ausgewertet und tektonische Modelle entwickelt, die mit Beispielen aus anderen Salinarprovinzen verglichen wurden. Hinsichtlich der Exploration auf Sauergas im Zechstein ergeben sich daraus neue Aspekte und Moeglichkeiten. (orig.)

    The goals of the reported study are: - to prepare a glossary on the term ''Resources'' in order to support communication based on a harmonised resource term and associated terms and - to provide key data on resource use in Germany in time series since 1991 up to the most recent year for which data were available (2004 in general), and to attribute results to the resource terms. Results achieved are presented and discussed below by the following sections: Provision of a glossary on the term ''resource'', use of the term ''resource'' at different levels, and provision of data and derived indicators for resource consumption in time series. First, a list of the relevant publications in the topic field ''resources'' was provided and co-ordinated with the client. This publication list is given in the annex to this report. On basis of national and international sources a glossary was provided which clearly describes and comments the resource term, its sub-terms and associated terms. This glossary is in the annex to this report. (orig.)

Reflections on attempts to prohibit the transport of radioactive material in Germany with special consideration of the Bremen Port Operation Act; ''Transportare necesse est''. Zu den Versuchen in Deutschland, den Transport radioaktiver Stoffe zu unterbinden unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung des bremischen Hafenbetriebsgesetzes

    Feldmann, U. [Wirtschaftsverband Kernbrennstoff-Kreislauf und Kerntechnik e.V., Berlin (Germany)

    2016-07-01

    Irrespective of the fact that about 95% of all nuclear transports are not related to the nuclear fuel cycle but are needed among others in medicine, research, agriculture, non-destructive testing of material and in the non-nuclear industry the number of protests against transports of all sorts of radioactive material have increased, especially the attempts to prohibit nuclear transports or - e.g. by delay - to hamper them. Such attempts come from citizens' initiatives as well as out of the political area. However, prohibition of nuclear transports can also be prescribed by law. A striking example for such a prohibition is the ban of loading and unloading of nuclear fuel in the ports of Bremen which was inserted in the Bremen Port Operation Act in 2012. Because of the unconstitutionality of this ban (Breach of exclusive federal competence and breach of loyalty to the federal state) but also because of the ban setting a precedent it was indispensable to take action before court against the ban. Several actions were brought to the administration court of Bremen in 2013 by three companies being active in the nuclear fuel cycle. The aim of the actions is to get a decision by the Federal Constitutional Court attesting the unconstitutionality of paragraph 2 subpara 3 of Bremens Port Operation Act.

    Germany is obligated to the implementation of emission inventories for climatic gases and air pollutants. This requires the proof and documentation of the data quality and uncertainties. In the project under consideration the uncertainties of the ZSE data records (ZSE = central system emissions) of the source groups road traffic, rail traffic, inland navigation traffic and residual traffic of the emission inventory are to be determined for all fuel methods, greenhouse gases and air pollutants. The basis of the ZSE data records are the programs TREMOD and TREMOD MM as well as the sales figures of fuels. Provisional results of the actual mineral oil statistics, updated road performances and stocks of vehicles as well as the actual emission factor data base of traffic are used as a fundament for the determination of uncertainties.

  9. The history of energy industry law in Germany. With particular emphasis on the development of the Energy Act (EnWG) and current proposals for reform under discussion; Zur Entwicklung des Energierechts in Deutschland. Unter besonderer Beruecksichtigung des Energiewirtschaftsgesetzes und der aktuellen Reformdiskussion

    Smeddinck, U.

    1995-11-01

    The paper describes the history and development of the regulatory framework governing the energy industry and the reasons why this legislation has been creating an organisational framework of the power industry in Germany with some strikingly peculiar features. The core structure and the essential aspects of the Energy Act (EnWG) are discussed in detail, followed by a survey of relevant cartel laws and the regime of franchise agreements and franchise duties. The amendments made in response to the oil crisis in the early seventies are mentioned, and current trends and proposals for reform are outlined. The Annex contains material illustrating a number of significant developments and issues in the history of the energy industry law, with brief explanations. The bibliography also lists publications of interest to readers wishing to get more insight into ongoing debates about problems posed by energy industry law, and proposed reforms. [Deutsch] Der Beitrag zeichnet die Entstehung und Veraenderung des rechtlichen Ordnungsrahmens nach, der fuer die derzeitige eigentuemliche Organisation der deutschen Elektrizitaetswirtschaft verantwortlich ist. Im Mittelpunkt steht das EnWG mit seinem Grundmuster. Darueberhinaus werden die einschlaegigen kartellrechtlichen Vorschriften und das Konzessionsabgabenrecht vorgestellt. Weiter wird die Reaktion des Gesetzgebers auf die dramatische Oelkrise zu Beginn der siebziger Jahre deutlich. Schliesslich wird der gegenwaertige Stand der Novellierungsbemuehungen skizziert. Die im Anhang enthaltenen Materialien veranschaulichen einige markante Punkte der energierechtlichen Entwicklung. Sie sind jeweils mit einer kurzen Erlaeuterung versehen. Das Literaturverzeichnis enthaelt auch Veroeffentlichungen zur aktuellen Diskussion, die dem interessierten Leser den vertieften Einstieg in dieses Problemfeld moeglich machen.

  10. Warm weather brings about significant drop in CO{sub 2} emissions in Germany in 2014. Sign of a new trend?; Dank warmer Witterung starker Rueckgang der CO{sub 2}-Emissionen in Deutschland im Jahr 2014. Ist das schon die Wende?

    Ziesing, Hans-Joachim

    2015-05-15

    In 2014 total CO{sub 2} emissions in Germany showed their first ever significant drop. In absolute terms they were as much as 5% lower than in the previous year, while corrected for temperature the decrease was still around 2%. Total greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to have decreased by 4.6% in absolute terms and by 1.7% when corrected for temperature. Judged on the basis of the temperature corrected values the results for 2014 do not yet signify a return to the target course running up to the year 2020 however. To this end greenhouse gas emissions would have had to decrease by at least around 3% in 2014. The need for political action to the protect our climate thus remains urgent.

  14. Der Unterricht zur Arzt-Patientin-Beziehung (APB im Fach Medizinische Soziologie an den medizinischen Fakultäten der Bundesrepublik Deutschland nach Änderung der Approbationsordnung für ��rzte [Teaching the doctor-patient relationship in medical sociology within German medical faculties following revisions to licensing regulations for physicians

    Kiessling, Claudia

    2008-11-01

    Full Text Available [english] Background: Changes in requirements governing licensing regulations for physicians in Germany (ÄAppO in 2002, has led to complex discussions within the German Society of Medical Sociology (DGMS. In order to support the process of curricular agreement, the DGMS workgroup entitled ‘teaching’ conducted a survey on how the doctor–patient relationship is taught in medical sociology. Method: The survey was conducted in spring 2005 via e-mail. A standardized questionnaire including a total of thirty educational objectives comprised the survey, whereby each objective was evaluated by five criteria. Thirteen experts in the field of medical sociology variously representing eleven medical faculties responded. According to suggested methods of the Delphi survey, means and ranges were calculated. Results: Of the thirty educational objectives surveyed, two were evaluated negatively by a majority of individuals. Twenty objectives showed variances in evaluation (i.e., controversial objectives. Eight objectives, for example, the social framing of the doctor–patient relationship, the elaborateness of language use, or the asymmetry of the doctor–patient relationship, were generally judged positively. Controversial objectives revealed some areas of contradiction. Some objectives – for example, exploring the social background of a patient – were evaluated as important items but were not frequently taught during regular sociology courses. Conclusions: The results show an interesting picture of present teaching practices in eleven medical faculties and will likely stimulate further discussion in the field of medical sociology. The response rate and discussions held in recent years demonstrate the need to discuss questions of relevance to medical education before a wider audience, both within the DGMS and other disciplines. Educational objectives and didactic methods need to be further developed to bring teaching in step with actual practice as well as to make it more multifaceted. [german] Hintergrund: Die 2002 eingeführte neue Ärztliche Approbationsordnung (ÄAppO löste in der Fachgesellschaft Deutsche Gesellschaft für Medizinische Soziologie e.V. (DGMS eine vielschichtige Diskussion aus. Um den Prozess der curricularen Verständigung zu forcieren, wurde von der AG Lehre der DGMS eine Befragung zum Thema Arzt-Patientin-Beziehung im medizinsoziologischen Unterricht durchgeführt. Methode: Die Befragung fand im Frühjahr 2005 per E-Mail statt. Instrument war ein standardisierter Fragebogen mit insgesamt dreißig Lernzielen, welche nach fünf Kriterien beurteilt werden sollten. Insgesamt 13 ExpertInnen aus Instituten der Medizinischen Soziologie an elf Medizinischen Fakultäten antworteten auf die Befragung. Die Daten wurden EDV-gestützt erfasst. In Anlehnung an die für Delphiverfahren empfohlenen Methoden wurden arithmetische Mittel und Streuungsmaße berechnet. Ergebnisse: Von den insgesamt dreißig Lernzielen wurden zwei von der Majorität der Befragten negativ beurteilt. Zwanzig weitere zeigten Beurteilungsvarianzen. Acht Lernziele, wie die soziale Rahmung der Arzt-Patientin-Beziehung, die elaborierte Sprache oder auch die Asymmetrie der Arzt-Patientin-Beziehung, wurden kollektiv positiv eingeschätzt. Bei den Lernzielen mit Beurteilungsvarianzen werden Widersprüche sichtbar. Bei einigen Lernzielen, wie etwa der Erhebung einer Sozialanamnese, klaffen erkannte Relevanz und praktische Umsetzung auseinander. Schlussfolgerungen: Die Ergebnisse bezüglich der gegenwärtigen Lehrpraxis zum Thema Arzt-Patientin-Beziehung an elf Medizinischen Fakultäten geben Orientierungen für weiterführende Diskussionen in der Medizinischen Soziologie. Zum einen führen die Antwortquote und die Diskussionspraxis der letzten Jahre zu der Schlussfolgerung, dass die Diskussion in der Fachgesellschaft über den Kreis der Fachvertreter resp. der langjährig in der Lehre Tätigen hinaus geführt werden sollte. Zum anderen zeigen die Ergebnisse, dass eine auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen geführte Diskussion dazu führen kann, den Unterricht noch praxisnäher und inhaltlich facettenreicher zu gestalten.

    The booklet contains recommendations (2.5., 7.5., 16.5. and 2.6.1986), the statement concerning the contamination of food (7.5.1986), and the progress report of the Radiation Protection Commission (SSK) to the committee of the German Bundestag dealing with the environment, which was issued on the 20th of June 1986. Furthermore a listing of the SSK's members from 1986 and the statutes of the SSK is provided. Since the recommendations of the Radiation Protection Commission (SSK) explained at several federal press conferences have not been reported properly, or have often led to misunderstandings, or have partly been misinterpreted in the media, this publication is to meet the urgent demand for information and to contribute to down-to-earth discussions in the public. 1 figure, 7 tables.

    The subject of the study is the interrelationship between environmental pollution, recreation value and recreation demand, as well as the estimation of the economic costs of pollution in the leisure and recreation branch. The first part of the study gives an overview of the theoretical background and the level of research in order to show how suitable evaluation procedures were developed. In the second part of the study, the situation of the recreation areas and their future development are presented. By means of examples, the basic qualitative and quantitative aspects of the impact of pollution on the environment as well as on those seeking recreation will be documented in part three. In the fourth part of the study, the results of the private househould survey and the willingness-to-pay-analysis are presented. In the fifth part of the study the economic costs are estimated for the main fields of impact: For the leisure and tourism industry and for nature itself. (orig.) With 160 refs., 67 tabs., 26 figs.

    Full Text Available [english] The Framework for Qualifications of the European Higher Education Area (FQ-EHEA; Bologna Process and the European Qualifications Framework for Lifelong Learning (EQF-LLL; Lisbon Process are competence-driven frameworks for vocational and higher education programmes in need for defined learning objectives. In the field of medical education, The Netherlands and Switzerland have developed national catalogues for undergraduate medical training, which are competence-based and compatible with a two-cycle curriculum comprised of a Bachelor in Medicine and a Master in Medicine. In Germany, virtually all medical organizations, last not least the Association of Medical Faculties (MFT, have voted against the application of the two-cycle (and the three-cycle curriculum to medical undergraduate education. A standstill of the European processes will not be accepted in the political arena, and a proposition was made by the Conference of German Ministers of Higher Education to develop a medical qualification framework for Germany, asking the Association for Medical Education (GMA and the MFT to join forces. This is not possible without consented national learning objectives derived from the professional context of physicians. The GMA has teamed up with the MFT to develop National Competence-Based Learning Objectives for Undergraduate Medical Education (NKLM in Germany (see Figure 1 to fulfill these needs.

    The German energy system is currently in a state of extensive transformation, which is primarily driven by the set of problems stemming from fossil energy sources and nuclear fuels being a finite resource and the largely unsolved problems arising from their use and the waste products and by-products that are generated through this use. An important goal of the pursued transformation of the German energy system, which has already been set in motion, is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions - in particular carbon dioxide, which is a by-product of the provision of the effective energies electricity and heat. Renewable energy sources and - in a transitional phase - decentralised fossil energy sources are to be used as alternatives to conventional fuels. But the question arises of the extent to which basic structural characteristics of the existing energy supply system should change: not only could the provision of electricity in Germany, which has been produced in large centralised power plants up to now, be decentralised, but also regulatory entities and the power marketplaces on which decentralised demand and supply are coordinated. This analysis examines - on the basis of a comprehensive description of the different system components on which the modelling of a specific distribution grid is based - the extent to which decentralisation of the German energy system can contribute to the reduction of CO{sub 2} emissions. To this end the dimensions of a possible decentralisation and their complex interactions are examined: - Basic framework conditions of policy and the energy industry for this decentralisation and the sub-markets of the electricity sector, which have already started to change, partly as a result of the increasing share of fluctuating production. In future the sub-markets are to play an important role in equalising fluctuating production; - Questions related to the integration of decentralised and renewable production, above all in terms of their integration in the grid and energy system; and - The potentials of possible CO{sub 2} emission abatements brought about by the interweaving and flexibilisation on the part of consumers and producers, on the one hand, and promotion of the expansion of decentralised power plant capacities on the other hand.

    The Federal Environment Agency is therefore proposing a multitude of measures which have the potential to significantly reduce the CO{sub 2} emissions caused by transport and to thus achieve the German Federal Government's climate protection objectives. The measures target both freight and passenger transport and cover all transport modes (heavy goods vehicles, passenger cars, inland waterways, rail, air, pedestrians and bicycles). The Federal Environment Agency suggests a range of complementary measures in the following fields: - Traffic avoidance: Influencing / reducing transport demand and shortening distances. - Modal shift: Shifting transport to more environmentally friendly modes. - Optimising transport: Better utilisation of existing transport capacities. - Economic measures and - direct emission reduction on vehicles. In line with this, the measures and instruments proposed focus on the following areas: - Traffic-reducing through town planning and transport planning - Promoting environmentally friendly transport modes - Economic measures - Measures to improve vehicle and fleet efficiency - Consumer information and driving behaviour in road traffic The table below provides an overview of the measures and their reduction potential for the years 2020 and 2030. The calculated CO{sub 2} savings result from the divergence from the trend scenario which was calculated using the ''TREMOD'' model and is based on measures for the transport sector which have already been adopted. The potentials from the various individual measures proposed by the Federal Environment Agency cannot simply be added up, since the measures may be mutually reinforcing or reducing each others effect. For instance, if fewer heavy goods vehicles are on the road because of a switch to rail, this reduces the absolute reduction that could be achieved by the HGV fleet through e.g. the use of low-friction oils and low-rolling-resistance tyres.
