Pittsburgh Energy and Environment Week Brings Together Stakeholders from North America and Europe

Focus on Bioenergy, Fuel Cells, Energy Efficiency and Recycling

Pennsylvania has a long-standing tradition of supporting green technologies. Of the 16 billion US dollars allocated to renewables and energy efficiency by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act some 450 million dollars will be spent on projects in the Keystone State. Pennsylvania is the host of the "Energy and Environment Week" (EEW), held on April 12 â€" 16, 2010 in Pittsburgh. EEW will bring together stakeholders from North American and Europe to talk business and new ventures.


EEW means five days of site tours, conference sessions, interactive workshops and exhibits. The focus is on energy and materials recovery from waste and biomass, the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cells, and the potential of energy efficiency technologies for climate protection and cost cutting. One highlight of the event is the alternative fuel vehicle ride and drive. EEW co-locates with two established events, "Energy from Biomass and Waste" and "Hydrogen Expo", both of which have become leading industry gatherings. Organizer Freesen & Partner GmbH is a specialist in connecting people in growth markets.

More than 150 exhibitors and 2,000 delegates are expected to attend EEW 2010. Exhibiting companies can contribute to the conference program with a presentation on their technologies and projects. "This formula has proven to be very effective for our exhibitors", says Dr. Ines Freesen, Managing Director of Freesen & Partner. "It also adds value for the attendees who get the chance to learn more about the technologies on several levels."

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
