As is the case in many countries, utility-scale power plants that produce renewable energy at the megawatt level are eligible to receive the Turkish government’s support via financial incentives. These power plants, whose operating costs are much lower than those of conventional power plants, can sell renewable power to electricity distribution companies at a government-guaranteed price over a fixed period of time. Companies or individuals can invest in and develop both licensed and unlicensed renewable energy projects to generate electricity. EkoRE offers investors all essential services to develop solar, wind and biogas power plants under one roof.
The EcoSmart brand encompasses a cloud-based wireless energy management system that aggressively reduces utility costs while maintaining room comfort in spaces with unpredictable occupancy patterns. The EcoSmart suite of products includes intelligent thermostats, outlets and switches that can be networked and integrated with many other ZigBee® wireless enabled room automation devices and communicate with BACnet® compatible HVAC control systems.
Collect valuable biogas from anaerobic digestion systems with a GTI gas collection cover. In waste-to-energy projects, the collected biogas can be used as a renewable fuel to generate process heat or electricity, helping to offset energy costs.
Biomass produces a cleaner, renewable energy, reducing harmful carbon dioxide emissions, all while creating lower operating costs for power plants.
Biomass, the by-product of pulp and paper, agriculture, and municipal sludge, is perhaps the oldest source of renewable energy on Earth. Biomass' use in energy production is currently growing worldwide at an exponential rate.
Many businesses today are faced with rising energy costs and declining competitiveness. These are some of the reasons why companies are adopting the sustainable and affordable solution of producing their own renewable energy, selling the surplus electricity back to the grid. In Turkey, businesses can install renewable energy systems with a capacity of up to 1 MW without a license, or can apply for a government license to install systems with capacities above 1 MW. Both licensed and unlicensed projects, located within specific electrical zones, can sell their surplus energy to the appropriate electricity distribution company. EkoRE provides a wide range of services for on-grid and off-grid solar, wind and biogas projects.
Commercial solar energy applications:
- Solar car parks
Dead trees and wood from forest thinning can be chipped, dried, and converted to renewable energy while eliminating disposal costs.
Disposal by gasification also has far lower particulate emissions than controlled burns and a lower carbon footprint than decomposition, since methane emissions from anaerobic decomposition are avoided. Decomposing wood reverts all of its carbon content to CO2, but gasification sequesters a portion of it as charcoal waste, usable as biochar.
Scalewatcher North America, manufacturer of the original, patented and award-winning computerized electronic water-conditioner, states in its literature that the device is produced to last at least 20 years and comes with a 10 year warranty. However, no reports have been received on the longevity of the units sold since the company was launched over 20 years ago. Now a customer in Gilroy, California has come forward requesting a new Scalewatcher unit after the device she purchased in 1992 finally stopped working.
She purchased the new Scalewatcher from local dealer, Aqua Genesis, and reported that:
“ I noticed that the sprinklers are covering more of an area than before. When I squirt water on the black and white tile patio table there are no longer any calcium spots even if I do not dry it off. The tile shower and the clear shower door are easier to wipe down after my shower. The new ScaleWatcher is much better than before. It certainly was time to replace the old one.”
The new, innovative, electronic Scalewatcher water conditioner uses proven technology to quickly and effectively dissolve existing limescale and prevent it recurring, returning water systems and water-fed appliances such as kettles, washing machines and dishwashers to their former efficiency. It also removes scale around faucets, sinks, baths, plugholes and shower roses as well as preventing white marks on shower screens and mould on shower curtains. The system requires no plumbing, chemicals or maintenance and is environmentally friendly.
In addition scale costs money for householders through additional cleaning products, the early renewal of water–fed equipment and additional costs to heat water. It is estimated that 40% more energy is needed to heat water in a system fouled with ¼ inch of limescale.
Commenting Jan de Baat Doelman, President of Scalewatcher North America says: “We have always built Scalewatcher electronic water conditions to last and this latest information confirms the device’s longevity. Scalewatcher will pay for itself in less than three years and then carry on providing homes with a scale free environment many more years to come. ”
Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.
