Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 22 marzo 2014

energiaHusum. Exhibition boss Peter Becker and experts from the fields of politics, science and industry associations opened the leading renewables trade fair, New Energy Husum, today with a critical keynote speech about the impact of the planned amendment to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). Exhibitors will be showing the complete range of products and services for renewable energy generation and storage in three halls and an open-air exhibition space until 23 March. The tenth New Energy Husum is also focusing on alternative transport in the shape of electric vehicles, and on green building and renovation.In his keynote speech, Professor Volker Quaschning from the HTW University of Applied Sciences in Berlin has criticised the plans of the federal government to further restrict the increase in renewable energy sources: “Capping the rise in electricity prices is meant to justify the emergency stop in energy transition. And in return we are sacrificing climate protection and Germany’s position as the leading pioneer of future technology”, said Quaschning.“New Energy Husum clearly shows that the ordinary citizens have already taken the reins of energy transition into their own hands”, said Peter Becker at the opening press conference. “When the parliament in Berlin votes on the amendment to the EEG, we expect to see a clear commitment to energy transition!“
At the press conference, Dr Harald Binder, managing director of the German Energy Storage Association, spoke out for a fundamental reorganisation of the energy supply system: “In future we will generate and use our energy locally. And for this we need intelligent storage solutions and the corresponding framework

No ai tagli lineari della spesa pubblica si alla modifica urgente del titolo V della costituzione

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 22 marzo 2014

I tagli alla spesa pubblica dichiara Pietro Giordano Presidente Nazionale Adiconsum vanno fatti ma non tagliando linearmente la stessa ma operando chirurgicamente sulle spese parassitarie clientelari e fondi di corruzione diffusa.Non si può continuare ad immaginare di operare tagliando orizzontalmente le pensione e magari coprire i buchi dei bilanci comunali e regionali aumentando la tassazione in diretta.Si faccia per legge una norma che obblighi tutte le amministrazioni pubbliche ad acquisti centralizzati, dalla carta per fotocopiatrici alla siringa per gli ospedali.Si proceda da subito alla riforma del titolo V della costituzione che ha prodotto anch’esso disperazione, sprechi e corruzione nella gran parte delle amministrazioni regioni del paese indebolendo la capacità di coordinamento e di offerta del ” prodotto Italia” a livello internazionale.Il punto non è tagliate gli organici della pubblica amministrazione ma rendere questa efficienti e sempre di più al servizio dei cittadini. si taglino invece le spese improduttive e si punti alla qualità della spese indirizzandola verso servizi più efficienti per i cittadini. Non si risolvono i problemi tagliando gli autisti degli autobus ma colpendo gli sprechi di milioni e milioni di euro che le singole municipalizzate da anni operano.

Commissione Europea. Tariffe di roming abolite e telefonate all’estero entro il 2015 senza costi aggiuntivi?

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 22 marzo 2014

smartphoneìDal 15 dicembre 2015 non saranno riconosciuti oneri per il roaming nell’Unione europea, e nessun costo supplementare per chiamate, inviare sms e navigare sul suo cellulare dall’estero, secondo un progetto approvato martedì dall’industria della Commissione europea.
La Commissione ha votato pacchetto il proposto dal Commissario per le telecomunicazioni Neelie Kroes, anche per rendere effettive le garanzie per la neutralità di internet.
I verdi e i socialdemocratici tedeschi hanno messo in guardia contro il fatto che è ancora possibile la discriminazione nell’uso di internet. Le tariffe per l’uso di un telefono cellulare o do uno smartphone all’estero erano già state oggetto di attenzione.
La Commissione competente del Parlamento europeo ha deliberato, quindi, che le tariffe di roaming dovrebbero essere eliminate. Ciò significa che le tariffe dovranno essere le stesse sia che ci si trovi nel proprio paese che all’estero entro il 2015. Contestualmente la Commissione ha anche votato il principio della neutralità della rete. Ciò significa che i fornitori di internet non potranno dare la preferenza al contenuto di alcuni inserzionisti. Attuando tale principio, quindi, si eviterà che le società di telecomunicazione non potranno più condizionare la rete rallentando o bloccando i servizi e le applicazioni dei loro concorrenti.Si tratta di notizie certamente positive che riguarda il campo delle telecomunicazioni per i consumatori europei per Giovanni D’Agata, presidente dello “Sportello dei Diritti”, che si augura che le proposte della commissione siano rapidamente rese effettive affinché per la data prevista, appunto il 2015, ciascuno stato membro si adegui unitamente alle compagnie telefoniche e ai fornitori di servizi internet.
