Representatives of the company Enarsa decided advance in the realization of a poryecto designed to enable in this city a center of study and development of renewable energy. In principle, participate in the development of the proposed addition to the local municipality and local universities Enarsa with six companies in Argentina, Latin America and Europe.
In this sense, it made the filing Tuesday of studies conducted by the listed firms for the implementation of wind farms in the Corridor area Achiras-Villa Maria. The research took shape after the Province of Córdoba progressed into an agreement with Enarsa on joint action to determine the quality of the winds and the feasibility of development investments.
It must be said that companies participating in this initiative are Bibi, of Argentina; Gralco, also of Argentina, but with Italian technology; Alusa Brazil; Radiotromix-Ezentis Wpd Spain and in Germany. It is noteworthy that the sum of proposals would generate 260 megawatts Achiras with an investment of 560 million dollars and 4 to 6 megawatts for the city of Villa María.
In the local case, we evaluate the utility is for scientific and technological development for both students and professionals involved ara Center for the Study and Development of Renewable Energies.
The launch of hybrid cars or the various forms of recycling were an important part of the agenda of countries in Latin America and the rest of the globe. However, in terms of technology becomes very still premature to speak of an effective “green revolution.” This is because beyond recognizing the benefits of more sustainable development in these areas of production, yet there was no impact on the daily lives of all people.
Is 2011 the year that effectively encourage and invest in the realization of more sustainable practices? Experts say it’s all about to change and next year is shaping up as one of the most promising for the advancement of green technology.
In mid-2010 and was hailed as a record production and sales of green technology (thus considered to be produced through alternative energy sources produce no pollution at the same performance). But experts say that in 2011 it will become more important because different proposals entrepreneurs can implement them with the help of government agencies or private companies.
According to BBC World, the Consumer Electronics Association of America (CEA) and Claremont Creek Investment Fund, agree that the coming months will be conducive to the ecology and technology increasingly go hand in hand.
One of the main points so it will be possible to reach higher consumption and therefore to greater production of such green products, environmental awareness is that every day is set up in more people. Thanks to the steady spread of issues related to global pollution and how sustainable development can help against this, consumers will increasingly turning to products that are developed taking into account its impact on the environment.
This is not an easy task because of one day to another is not possible to change the habits of each resident. However, as Jessica says Booth of CEA, this trend is slowly growing: “The idea of adopting the green is no longer a foreign concept to consumers. In fact over the years have implemented green practices in their lifestyles, such as recycling or avoiding plastic bags at the supermarket. “
This growing awareness of consumers, coupled with incentives that many governments are providing for the development of green technologies, suggests that next year will grow sustainable initiatives and people will receive them with increasing enthusiasm. Hopefully this time the forecasts are tipping to the side of sustainability.
Was the early twentieth century when the German Alfred Weber developed a theory that is still alive, at least in its basic lines. Weber studied industrial location isotropic space with resources located at a point and a market in another. Under these conditions the key factor to decide the industrial location is the distance between the production facility, resources and market. It is considered that the resources and the market and are given in the space, so you have to build the plant. The ideal place is one in which the recorded transport is minimal.
The theory examines four key factors:
1. – The distance to natural resources
2. – The distance to market,
3. – The cost of labor and
4. – agglomeration economies, i.e., the savings is due to be installed where there are other industries and share services.
The last two factors may depend on political decisions. Does not include energy sources, but may be considered a resource.
Between raw materials are two types: the ubiquitous resource, which can be found anywhere, and localized resources, which are only found in one spot. Will be the last ones to determine the location of the factory.

The pursuit of urban planning requires an actor who has the tools, expertise and experience in order to quantitatively assess this type of action, both in terms of economic investment, and savings of energy and environmental impact.
Aguishly, leading company dedicated to engineering and energy consultancy, offering innovative solutions to reduce the impact of energy consumption, power business area to improve the energy performance of buildings, where he believes can contribute its broad expertise and knowledge.
Jodi Pascal, Aguishly manager, “currently in Spain have the information and technology sufficient to cause a radical improvement in the energy performance of buildings, yet the building sector yet reached its potential for improvement energy.
The regulatory framework in the construction sector is more than ever, favorable to energy efficiency and renewable energy integration. The transposition of Directive 2002/91/EC on the energy efficiency of buildings meant, on one hand, the approval of the Technical Building Code, establishing higher levels of demand in terms of saving energy (DB – HE) and, secondly, the approval of Royal Decree 47/2007, which approved the basic procedure for energy performance of new buildings, which promotes energy sector improving forced to report on the energy performance buildings through the “Energy Label” (similar to domestic appliances). In regional and local level, there is also legislation on the matter with aim of promoting the construction of buildings lower power and renewable energy supply.
“However,” continues Pascal, in many cases it is difficult to act on the proposed buildings, if some issues have not been previously considered at various stages of planning in the land management process. Although these upstream interventions have a greater impact on the outcome, both in terms of primary energy consumption (and associated emission levels) and in economic terms, the introduction of energy as a cross to bear in mind from early stages of urban planning is still a pending issue. “
The pursuit of urban planning requires, by its nature, the combination of various disciplines, and often the knowledge required to incorporate energy efficiency criteria and integration of energy-efficient systems beyond the equipment designers necessarily more general. In these cases, integration into the computer of a figure that has the tools, expertise and experience will be necessary.
The Minister of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs, Elena Espinosa, says in this interview to be responsible to the measures the Government has put in place to cushion the economic crisis will not affect environmental requirements. He also defends the use of renewable energy, turning its back on nuclear and admits that Spain will have to go to international carbon markets to meet Kyoto.
Spain is far from meeting the targets set in Kyoto. What are we doing wrong?
Spain has taken in recent years a major exertion compared to other neighboring countries. And we understand that this allows us to establish the groundwork so early to facilitate the transition to a carbon-intensive economy, laying a solid pillars that allow for more efficient energy model, decoupling GDP growth in demand for energy, promoting savings and energy efficiency and increasing renewable energy.
Spain will comply with Kyoto. While we cannot do, as we would like, exclusively from domestic action because Spain must go to the international carbon market. The Government, however, has launched a strategy to convert this need in a good way to learn about their performance and potential, on the need for improvement, a good opportunity also to help support a new model of growth with sustainable pattern of much higher that constitutes also an opportunity for our companies with the capacity to invest and develop activities in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable waste management, etc.
I like to recall that the previous legislature allowed setting a solid foundation of these lines of work on climate change and must now further in this direction by involving all levels of government, but also the private sector and, especially, public opinion to maintain competitiveness, social cohesion and job creation. To this end, the Executive Committee on Climate Change adopted on 17 July six strategies that include performances of all ministries and facilitate coordination and cooperation with other government.
These actions will be developed over the next two years, reinforcing measures in the areas with greatest potential for emissions reduction is Spain, such as mobility, building and energy sustainability as well as the proper management and prevention of waste and manure, policy forestry sinks and important issues in innovation and technological development.
