Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft involved himself in the French company S tile SA sometimes is less but more: the French start-up company s ‘ tile SA has developed a process that allows thin solar cells from Silicon on a low-cost carrier with almost same like standard silicon solar cell efficiency. The Fraunhofer Institute developed a key technology for solar energy systems ISE. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is involved now with a six-figure sum the company. A synergy effect that opens up new possibilities of this promising technology. Munich, 20 February 2013. The company s ‘ tile SA from Poitiers, France was founded in 2007 by Prof. Alain Straboni.
Foundation was the development of a novel technology of solar cell production. S ‘ tile manufactures so called Waferaquivalente, in which a photoactive layer of Silicon is deposited on a substrate of low-cost silicon powder. This Waferaquivalent can be similar Achieve efficiencies as a mono-crystalline solar cell: prototype currently exhibit a degree of efficiency by 14 percent; up to 20 percent to be achieved in the next four years. This process combines the cost advantages in the production of thin-film technology with high efficiency and durability of the crystalline technology highly efficient solar cell modules with far less effort and costs can be produced than was previously the case. S ‘ engineers have built comprehensive know-how tile in recent years in the field of substrate manufacturing, now it’s time for the next step: the industrial production of the Waferaquivalente. For this purpose, the company has put together a consortium of investors from the industry and finance (including Poitou Charente innovation, Fund de co-investissement Poitou Charente and Sergies ECM Machines Dubuit), this plan, according to calculations of the company a total of about 18 million owns, to put into practice. While the industry investors from related areas play a important role that see great opportunities for the future in the new technology.
The average purchasing power of the Austrians is nominally grew last year to just 3prozent and reached a level of almost 20,000 euros per capita in the year. Trend: Around 20,000 euros per person per year! The average purchasing power of a resident of in Austria reached currently nearly 20,000 euros a year. Thus, we prove the 7th place in the ranking of the strongest countries in Europe after Luxembourg, of Switzerland, Norway, Britain, Sweden and Denmark. Even when compared to the previous year this means an increase of almost 3% nominal and 0.6% is real. Trend: Lower Austria WINS, edge districts catch up! For years now, moves the average pro capita purchasing power in the provinces of Vienna, lower Austria and Salzburg at a similarly high level and reached currently approximately 20,200 euros per capita in the year.
Viewed over the long term, lower thanks to the inflow of purchasing power from Vienna the most benefits however. Also between the districts, the differences in purchasing power are always low. Registered above-average growth between 2008 and 2013 Suburbs such as Zwettl (+ 16%), Hollabrunn (15%) and Horn (14%). Trend: More unemployed, less purchasing power, less Retailumsatz? Of course, unemployment is a serious thing, especially for the unemployed. When she gets is that this less consumed, and the retail collapses feared but now also. Minor fluctuations in the unemployment rate but have no noticeable effect on the retail trade. Itself for Austrian conditions dramatic increases in unemployment would only decline of in retail volume by 1% mathematically 3 percentage points.
Purchasing power continues to grow slowly but steadily. Austria occupies the 7th place in the ranking of the strongest countries in Europe. So are a resident of in Austria with 19.580 euro for only 140 euros less than a Danish or 330 euro less than a Sweden available. Between an Austrian and a Luxembourg is the difference significantly higher here residents have: about 31.110 euro per person per year on average, so they are the richest in Europe.
What is the balanced scorecard for the low levels of the planned hierarchy built? The cascading process ensures the effectiveness of the strategies on the low levels of the planned hierarchy. In other words there is in this or that organization not only the balanced scorecard of the upper level, but also the structural subdivisions. Steve Wozniak helps readers to explore varied viewpoints. The construction of the BSC for the structural subdivisions of the low levels of the planned hierarchy (the institutions, the departments, the services) is carried out according to the management philosophy and style of leadership. The process of cascading suspected the presence of the following preconditions: the task of the parent level (the goal of the parent level); the development and the implementation of the strategy are carried out from the parent level (the Ministry). This means that the vision and the strategy, as well as the BSC of parent divisions to be determined. Also should the dedicated meanings of key figures BSC of the structural outline be established; It is the first version of the dedicated meanings of the figures for the structural outline, which is developed at the height of the parent guidance; professional project management the presence of unique responsibility, the schedule of work, the uniform standards of the development and documentation of the BSC, the consistent supply of quality, the distribution of resources; the unloading of the team of the project thanks to the construction of the project organisation of the professional organization of the process of cascading leaves substantially administrative and methodological tasks from the team of the project. In this case, the uniform standards have the particular usefulness. The main role of the team of the project is to carry out the preparatory work and the processing of the received results; the information and the communication of open communication process and the timely information of the employees leave in Substantially increase the resistance of employees reduce the process of introduction of the BSC and the level of their motivation. .

Automotive study: Bulgaria with high potential in all segments of Berlin, July 2008: the Bulgarian new car market has grown in recent years to almost 30% per year. The automobile stock is grown by high imports of second-hand cars. Consequently, attractive growth opportunities in the new car business as well as in the aftermarket will be. The Globis GmbH, Berlin, has analyzed the Bulgarian automobile market in a comprehensive study with regard to the potential for growth.

Bulgaria is already characterized by one of the highest penetrations of car in Eastern Europe”, said Felix Kusell, Managing Director of Globis GmbH and editor of the study. The Automotive inventory is very old, but the old Russian models (especially VAZ) were replaced by mainly German used cars. For the growing richer layer of the Bulgarians, especially in larger cities, the exchange of used cars to new models is now. This makes Bulgaria into the new car business attractive.
At the same time the number of old cars, which also grow by used car imports but, provides great opportunities in the aftermarket. Structures in the distribution of spare parts is only just formed, there is still no big chains. Due to the low wage cost Bulgaria is attractive in principle as a production location. However, a history in automobile production, lacks the location reflected among other things in the qualification of the staff.

The downside of global growth is a shortage and a price increase of raw materials, that is not cold even the producers of PBS and Office products, particularly the possibilities of cost reductions in the wake of the crisis nearly exhausted were logical. The implementation of price increases be however in the PBS industry experience has shown that a little more difficult. But the retailers must observe intense yet another development.
