Socioeconomic and ecological perceptions and barriers to urban tree distribution and reforestation programs

Tree planting and reforestation initiatives in urban and peri-urban areas often use tree distribution or “giveaway” programs as a strategy to increase tree cover and subsequent benefits. However, the effectiveness of these programs in terms of …

Floral morphology as the main driver of flower-feeding insect occurrences in the Paris region

Through the rapid expansion worldwide of impervious areas and habitat fragmentation, urbanization has strong consequences that must be understood to efficiently manage biodiversity. We studied the effects of urbanization on flower-feeding insects …

City parks vs. natural areas - is it possible to preserve a natural level of bee richness and abundance in a city park?

Urbanisation is an expansive process and a majority of insects live in human-modified areas. At the same time, a decrease in pollinator species richness and abundance has recently been observed in Europe, which in turn may have serious ecological …

Herausforderung Elektromobilität für die Niederspannungsnetze – ein Bericht

Die stark zunehmende Zahl der Elektrofahrzeuge in Vorarlberg, Österreich, stellt die Niederspannungsnetze vor große Herausforderungen. Bereits bei geringen Durchdringungsraten kann es zu Grenzwertverletzungen bezüglich der Spannungen und Kabelauslastungen kommen. Besonders die steigenden Leistungsspitzen werden zukünftig hohe Netzinvestitionen mit sich bringen. Erste weitreichende Untersuchungen zeigen, dass eine hohe Durchdringungsrate nur integriert werden kann, wenn Ladestrategien weiterentwickelt und schrittweise in die Niederspannungsnetze etabliert werden. Um die Elektromobilität volkswirtschaftlich einbinden zu können, müssen dazu alle Interessensvertreter ihren Beitrag leisten.  Jetzt gratis downloaden!
