Optical Storage Technology Association
Optical Storage Technology Association Provides Tips to Save Treasured Family Photo Memories
CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- If a disaster is on your doorstep, what will you do? Whether it is an impending hurricane, tornado, fire or response to an earthquake, the most immediate reaction is to grab your kids, pets and the family photo album and leave the area of danger. However, today's precious family memories are not necessarily stored as prints in a bulky album or a box, but are often on a computer hard drive, or even better, on more portable CDs or DVDs. People just may not be able to take the time to disconnect the computer and tote it out of the house when getting safely out of harms way may only give you minutes to escape.
SunTechnics Establishes Subsidiary in the USA
HAMBURG, Germany and SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- SunTechnics, Europe's leading system supplier of renewable energy solutions, has established a subsidiary in the USA named SunTechnics Energy Systems, Inc., with headquarters in Sacramento, California. This gives SunTechnics a presence on four continents, with its own companies, ensuring close proximity to end customers. "The demand for energy in the USA is huge, primarily because of electrically-powered air conditioning systems. For this reason we are initially focusing on grid-connected photovoltaic systems," reports Karl-Heinz Tonges, CEO of the U.S. operations. The USA is currently the world's third-largest market for photovoltaic systems. In 2004, total new installations amounted to 84 Megawatts, representing a 27% growth over the prior year. Around 80% of the systems were installed in California, where buyers of photovoltaic systems can receive rebates and tax incentives to bring down the price of installation by as much as 30 to 50%. Governor Schwarzenegger has been a strong proponent of renewable energy, with his Million Solar Roof Initiative aiming to extend and increase solar energy incentives in the state. "Thanks to incentive programs and rising conventional energy prices, we are anticipating that the demand for photovoltaic systems will accelerate even faster in future. Our objective is to grow faster than the market," continues Tonges. The first project is already in the pipeline. Under the auspices of the dena (German Energy Agency) initiative, "Solar Roofs on German Schools and Institutions Abroad," SunTechnics Energy Systems, Inc. is equipping the German School in Silicon Valley with a photovoltaic system. The project will start later this year.
