The first hindrance in strength costs was once absolutely a robust stimulus for the involvement of the fee of the eu groups in study and improvement on substitute strength resources. certainly, the necessity to conquer problems confronted via the group as a complete, relatively these due to its seriously unbalanced power provide, made a typical neighborhood process look in particular apt. This reasoning additionally applies to power R&D, taking into account that responses to the difficulty could be not just political or monetary, but in addition medical. 4 years have handed because the determination of the Council of Ministers to release the 1st neighborhood power study and improvement Programme, facing geothermal strength, solar power, hydrogen construction and utili­ sation, power conservation and effort structures research. A seminar on geo­ thermal strength was once held years in the past to document on paintings in growth on the half-way level of the four-year programme. the second one foreign seminar, said during this quantity, used to be arrang­ ed with a purpose to provide a chance to ascertain the ultimate final result of this group funding in study in geothermal power. This court cases quantity for this reason has major goals: - to offer an review of the result of the group geothermal programme, through eighty three formal stories describing the person learn programmes; - to teach how the group examine programme suits into the final context of nationwide and foreign examine on geothermal power, via together with the shows of six visitor audio system who brought the classes and gave keynote addresses.

Saul Bellow and the Decline of Humanism

This can be a learn revealing Saul Bellow's perspectives at the decline of humanism. With chapters on each one of Bellow's novels from "Dangling" to "More Die of Heartbreak", the writer argues that Bellow's imaginative and prescient of contemporary American tradition denies the opportunity of humanist enlightenment for his heroes. faced by means of the materially-driven, spiritually impoverished truth of yankee lifestyles, they're more and more compelled into withdrawal and isolation from the fallen group round them.

Switzerland’s Differentiated European Integration : The Last Gallic Village?

This e-book analyses Switzerland’s eu regulations utilizing the idea that of differentiated eu integration, offering a brand new and unique point of view at the nation. This analytical procedure makes a speciality of the similarities among Switzerland's ecu regulations and the mixing of ecu member states. The latter have frequently been the focal point of study as Switzerland is the final Western ecu state to not became a member of the eu Union (EU) or the eu financial sector (EEA).

MUNCK * F. Dr. K. SAUER Dr. R. Service Geologique Regional Alsace (BRGM) Geologisches Landesamt Baden-Wurttemberg Abstract In the alsatian and badean part of the upper Rhine graben, four water bearing formations display characteristics suitable for geothermal energy, which are the Rauracian-Sequanian formations, the Great-Oolite, the upper Muschelkalk and the Bundsandstein. 000. The maps of temperature distribution as well as of mineral content of the flowing fluids have been produced from data obtained in oil and thermal water wells.

Some 15 000 dweLLings are ~Lready heated by thermaL water and the number should soon increase to 40 000. Here again, the prospects for exporting technology and equipment both to the Third World and to other industrialized countries are immense. Even to hot countries, paradoxically, since geothermal hot water can also be used to produce frigories as well as calories. e. European, process (ElectroLux) that this production of coLd has been made possible. Not only can this cold contribute to the general well-being in tropical regions but can also - and above all - be used to conserve perishable foodstuffs such as fish, bananas, meat, etc ••• This provides Europe with an outstanding opportunity not only to improve the alarming food supply situation in the Third World but also to re-establish Third World confidence in its former colonizers and to improve the present relationships between these countries and Europe.
