  1. Travelling is probably the best thing to have it as an occupation. It opens up the horizon of our mind, i.e., our thinking ability and carves a permanent mark of the whole world that comes out of the various experiences and wisdom the traveller gained while witnessing diverse culture, human and nature. In the time of rapid climate changes and pollution increase in a petrifying level, in our opinion, a traveller or a tourist should always follow some rules and regulations to keep the nature safe so that the places he visits get a touch of healing and as a whole the human being can stretch the limit of its own existence in the world a bit. For the last few years numerous tourists, mainly from the northern hemisphere, flock to the tropical bliss Turks and Caicos in between December to April. Because of its tropical sun, many tourists find their winter vacation homes in Turks and Caicos these days. This small island country consists of two groups of islands lying on the south-eastern periphery of The Bahamas, of which they form a physical part, and north of the island of Hispaniola.For most of the year, Turks and Caicos experiences Atlantic trade winds moderated by the warm Antilles Current. Yet the climate is remarkably dry with a mean rainfall and evaporation and unfavourable to farming and the recharge of groundwater.The islands include eight large cays (keys) and numerous smaller cays, islets, reefs, banks, and rocks. This makes this land home for various underwater species. Beaches like Smith’s Reef is famous for its diverse and very rich coral. Salt Cay is the place where the traveller witnesses the whales. Being an island country surrounded by the Atlantic, the country’s import is covered majorly with the fish, lobsters and conchs. All these things point to a single statement that the ecology of this place should be maintained with high precaution as this little country is totally dependent upon the natural resources which are none but various species themselves. With the increase of temperature, certain climate changes will occur. Among them are the most dangerous things like extremity in temperature, frequent floods, droughts, tropical storms etc. Turks and Caicos is a part of the Small Islands Developing States (SIDS). In the case of Global Green House Gas Emissions, SIDS contributes a meagre amount, i.e., less than 1% but bears formidable amount of impacts created by the global climate changes. For an example, let us cite the case of Hurricane Ivan in 2004 which caused a direct loss of 900 million US$ in Grenada and that is more than twice the country’s GDP. It resulted in damaging of 90% of the hotel stock in that place. To deal with all these, along with the growing tourism industry, the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA) of Turks and Caicos decreed to ensure certain things that the country’s natural resources are being used sustainably, to protect and promote biodiversity and economic prosperity through a sustainable fisheries industry, environmentally sustainable development, a Protected Areas system and improved Maritime Affairs. They set some humble regulations, naming it etiquette, for the tourists to follow while visiting the country’s luring spots. We are mentioning all of the points made by DEMA in the hope that all of the tourists will follow these in order to protect the nature. Environmental Rulesand Etiquettes to Consider during Your Stay Guided Tours: ·Tourists must report to the DEMA if they notice any of the captain's anchors on the coral reefs or seagrass beds. ·Make it confirmed that the conch you are devouring has not come from the national park. Coastal Regulations: ·If you want to have a bonfire or any other kind of party on the beach, it is mandatory to take permission from DEMA. ·Never remove any kind of corals, sand, shells and wildlife, whether dead or alive, from the Protected Areas. This thing is entirely illegal. · If an individual wants to export more than three queen conch shells, he must apply for a CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) export permit through DEMA. The process will take at least 4-5 business days to be accomplished. ·The ‘swim zone’ is the 300 feet of the shore. Please swim within this range. ·Fishing in the National Parks on in Natural Reserves is totally prohibited. ·Do not forget to remove all kind of trash you are carrying. Remember of the wind that might help your removed trash to get into the water. So be cautious about it. · Please keep yourself comfortable on the walkways. Try to avoid being on the sand dunes to watch out for iguana burrows on the uninhabited cays. ·Never even try to feed the fish, birds or reptiles. · Always use the biodegradable lotion and take the time for all lotions to soak into your skin before you get into the ocean because suntan lotions are toxic for the reefs. ·Never even think of standing or hitting or kicking the coral. Probably you have already known that coral is a living animal so never hurt them. ·Please try to avoid kicking sand with your fins when snorkelling so that fine particles do not smother and choke living coral. ·If you want to do some fishing, do not worry. Apply through DEMA. · Skiing is encouraged only in the ski zones. So apparatus involved in this sports like jet skis or hovercrafts are permitted only in demarcated ski zones. ·Want to visit the sanctuary? Again, you need a written permission from DEMA.

That is why it is useful to be prepared as well as possible. Read this checklist quickly and you can immediately start working with worldwide packages. 1. Check in advance what you can and cannot send You may not ship some products, or only under certain conditions. Think for example of alcoholic drinks or flammable liquids. Therefore, check in advance what is and is not allowed. The shipping conditions differ per country. Do you want to know which these are? Check the list of prohibited products online. 2. Keep in mind import duties and regulations Within country, the same legislation generally applies, but it may differ outside country. That is why it is good to have your conditions available in multiple languages. Are you going to ship internationally, outside the country? Then your customer will have to pay import duties in some cases. The amount depends on the type of product. Always send a clear and honest invoice. Paste the shipping label on your foreign package shipment. 3. Use the right packaging A package that is sent abroad will cover quite a few kilometers.

  7. These days, businesses need to find ways to make themselves as green as possible. It's necessary to keep the air clean and ensure your company is not adding to air pollutants. When you work for an industrial company or within an industrial industry, this can be a challenge and it can be expensive. One of the methods used within the industrial world to ensure that the air stays clean is through regenerative thermal oxidizers. These are pieces of industrial equipment that absorb exhaust gases and uses ceramic materials to then absorb the heat and break down the pollutants in the exhaust gas. This type of equipment is key for industries that have to deal with any kind of exhaust system that releases gases into the air. That gas has to go somewhere, but it is filled with pollutants. Oxidizers help. Some of the industries that can benefit from using this type of equipment include: painting booths, paper mills and printing companies. In some countries, certain types of business are required to use this equipment to ensure any kind of gas that is vented into the air are cleaned and not a risk to the surrounding community. The other term for trying to reduce the carbon footprint of your company on the world is environmental remediation. This involves cleaning air, soil and water around companies that produce toxins. If it's found that chemicals have been introduced into the environment around those businesses, there are tools and methods that can eliminate the toxins within soil and materials around the company. These days, the environment is more important than ever. It is better understood in this day and age how just one company producing air pollutants can contaminate not just the air, but the surrounding soil and water, too. All of this can end up inside homes or other buildings, potentially miles away from where the business is actually set up and running. There are now regulations which monitor the amount of pollutants allowed into the air and certain industries are even more regulated than others, with legal fines and other legal actions taken against businesses that are found in violation of these rules. Of course, equipment that is effective and can clean the air properly and meet the government environmental standards can also be expensive. There is a world out there that sell used oxidizing equipment, including thermal oxidizers. This can help reduce the cost of cleaning the air and reducing the air pollutants released by the company. If you run an industrial business and have to deal with exhaust systems that put gases into the air, you need to make sure your company is not violating these rules. Remediation is the way to go and offers solutions that protect the environment and community so that your business can focus on what you do rather than having to worry about what's happening to the environment. Being a responsible business owner means using the latest technology to protect the environment around your property.
  8. How test drinking water for metals

    Water is one of the basic necessities of life, we may live without everything else. But without water, no life would be possible on this earth. But now due to so much pollution in our environment, even the water which is pumped from deep under the earth is also not pure. Now there are many metals added to the drinking water, and by metals, it is really meant real metal pores in our drinking water. Well obviously these metals are not added by us, but somehow they get mixed with our water system. So if we need to know that which metals are being present then we need to perform testing water for metals. Metals in Water The water which is being used from the old pipelines, then they are really rusty, and when water is passed through them, then many Lead pores are also added to them. And if we constantly drink lead mixed water then it could result in many health issues like kidney failure. And if any woman is pregnant then she could result in premature birth or even miscarriage. In the same way, Arsenic could be also added to the water by the same way, and this could result in more dangerous health risks like Lungs Cancer, or even heart failure or major heart attack. Plus you might have heard about hard water, well basically hard water is calcium mixed water. Purification Process And drinking this water may not cause some serious health problems but still, it is quite dangerous to use heavy water for a longer time period. And all these metals are surely due to the bad water supply system of UK. And that is why still there are several water companies in the UK that supply water to several homes and buildings. So there is constantly testing water for metals, in order to ensure the safety of citizens of UK. Now it is not just about some germs or microorganisms inside water that could be removed by boiling water at high temperature and low pressure. But now there are metal components inside it, which can be only removed by using filters of various types.
  9. Hospitals produce a lot of rubbish clearance, especially given all the disposable waste removal they have! Therefore, is it a really good sign that hospitals are beginning to take their social obligations of keeping their rubbish clearance out of landfills seriously. Many hospitals around the world are actively developing plans to divert their rubbish clearance from landfills and use more sustainable practices of rubbish clearance. One of the most important steps for hospitals is to consciously make an effort to purchase products that are 100% biodegradable. Luckily, many supplies used at hospitals such as scrubs and various bedside supplies are made from cellulose fibres that are already biodegradable. Of course, if these biodegradable products are still sent to the landfill, it defeats the purpose of them being biodegradable. Thus, many hospital administrators are finding ways to get these biodegradable waste streams to an appropriate rubbish clearance processor that can handle biodegradable waste removal outside a landfill. Hospitals can also take a look at packaging and food containers. For example, otherwise recyclable coffee cups can't be recycled if they have a non-biodegradable plastic liner. However, if the hospitals switch to using cardboard cups lined with corn starch or sugar cane materials, they become fully biodegradable. Since hospitals do such a high volume of buying, purchasing decisions like this could make a significant difference in the amount of rubbish clearance that could be biodegraded and kept out of landfills. The biggest solid waste stream for most hospitals is PAPER! If you've even been hospitalized, or been to the hospital with a family member, you'll have some idea of why! There always seems to be stacks of information on paper and forms to sign for every thing you do in a hospital. You may even be tempted to bring your portable file with you you get handed so much paper. In one survey of California hospitals, it was found that 53.8 percent of all solid waste was paper. Paper that goes to landfills rots because it gets compacted down into dense areas with no oxygen. This rotting paper produces methane gas that escapes into the atmosphere and contributes heavily to the greenhouse effect. However, if that same paper can be taken to a recycling center, it can be repurposed into other paper products without it producing all that methane. Therefore, hospitals should strive to do two things: 1. Try to go paperless whenever possible. 2. Send their paper rubbish clearance to paper recycling centres rather than landfills. It would be a more than fifty percent improvement in the social responsibility to our society to become more sustainable and keep their rubbish removal out of the landfills if hospitals would do these two things with regards to their paper waste. Here's another exiting waste management change happening at some hospitals that hopefull will catch on. Currently, five hospitals in the Netherlands have installed their own anaerobic digesters, called the Pharmafilter system. It anaerobically digests, in an oxygen free environment, all their biodegradable rubbish clearance, including their hazardous biowaste, like bloody bandages and used syringes. The waste removal is transferred away from individual hospital wards through sewer pipes. It is then shredded and treated. The liquid waste is then separated from the solid waste. The liquid waste is where the infections bacteria and discarded medicines reside. This liquid is then filtered and treated chemically on the hospital grounds so it is no longer contains any hazardous materials. As the solid rubbish clearance is anaerobically digested, it produces a methane gas that can be captured and converted to energy. This powers the hospitals and all the leftover energy from this ingenious process is fed into the power grid for the nation. It seems too that hospitals might benefit from partnering with private rubbish clearance companies that already purposefully divert as much of the waste they pick up away from the landfills. Local councils simply haven't caught up with the latest technologies for recycling waste and end up taking biodegradable rubbish clearance to the landfills. Clearabee is a rubbish clearance company in the UK that seems particularly poised to partner with hospitals that want to divert their rubbish away from landfills. Clearabee already does this with other industries. For example, they partner with landlords to take the rubbish clearance removed from flats and other rentals after a tenant leaves to places that can recycle or reuse most of it. Clearabee also partners with restaurants to keep their food waste out of landfills. It seems only the natural next step, if they haven't done so already, to partner with hospitals.

  11. Composing research papers for English Composition, Literature or some other class isn't hard, however it can be an overwhelming procedure. Once in a while if feels as though you have a perpetual measure of assignments you need to finish before you and your paper in. The greatest of these undertakings is composing; the way toward taking a seat and presenting your thoughts in the most ideal way paper writer . It extremely just includes utilizing a straightforward, 3-step process which I will impart to you. Compose an Outline I presume a vast part of my perusers are burnt out on me howling on about layouts. I'm a major adherent to diagrams. On the off chance that you can build up 90% of your thoughts in a framework before composing your paper, composing ends up paltry. Why? Since composing basically includes two distinctive points of view: 1. Laying out the rationale and thinking of your contentions. 2. Articulating your sentences to the peruser. Would you be able to see where these two may be counterproductive to each other? In the event that you've at any point been composing an examination paper and stalled out on the grounds that you understood one of your focuses was frail or didn't bode well, you've been a casualty to this trap. Isolate your thinking from its introduction. Work through your thoughts already, lead compelling exploration, and the vast majority of the fight is finished. Put the greater part of that diligent work into your blueprint and you've basically composed your paper, despite the fact that you haven't composed it yet. Plan Your Writing Time You know your timetable generally. Rather than sitting tight for the on edge wave to come over you to start composing, dispense short measures of time every day prior to the due date. I've discovered only 20-30 minutes works best for generally understudies. That doesn't mean you ought to take a seat and compose for 30 minutes in a row. Rather, take breaks between your written work pieces, say each 5-10 minutes or thereabouts, and investigate what you've achieved. With the end goal for this to work, it's urgent you have your layout helpful. Work out the center contentions from your framework and form them into shape Bear in mind to take breaks. Between your short written work sections you ought to unwind, prop your feet up, have some tea and even take part in things that are entertaining. Altering Your Paper for the Highest Grade Altering isn't hard yet most understudy authors overlook it, to their drawback. I think the reason is that the rigging changing from keeping in touch with altering can be troublesome. While composing can be a kind of gauntlet, altering is more similar to refining a move. It comes in two stages: In the first place, check all accentuation and linguistic blunders. This is the sort of specialized altering most understudies remember. This is a paltry issue Second, and this is the most vital part, is altering your introduction. You have the majority of your thoughts down on paper, would they be able to be progressed? Would they be able to be streamlined or refined in any capacity? More imperative is the manner by which your contentions stream with each other. Does the change of your theory spill out of one section to the following? Do you complete your investigation with a conclusion that leaves the peruser thinking about your perspective of the point? Altering has numerous aspects, however in the event that you can reply "yes" to these inquiries, you know you're at any rate in good shape.
  12. Five billion rand is an enormous amount of money, right? That is the current estimate as to just how much the Western Cape drought is going to cost the agricultural sector, and this amount could go up. This is a major knock for farming in South Africa, as well as the country’s economy as a whole. That is why we need innovative and responsible solutions like the following, for the good of the entire country. Mulching Mulching is a natural process that has been adopted by farmers for centuries, and it is still relevant in situations such as the Western Cape drought. Mulch is a layer of natural materials like bark, mowed grass, dung and many other natural leavings found all over farms. Many farmers turn this ‘waste’ into a handy source of compost. Mulch can helping farming in South Africa through dry spells because it locks in the soil’s moisture by acting as a barrier against evaporation. So while your seedlings are growing, the moisture being given to them is locked down, and at the same time the mulch will decompose and add nutrients to the soil. This addition of nutrients is also beneficial because it helps to improve the health of the soil, and healthy soil holds moisture much better than soil with poor nutritional value. Fog netting As the Western Cape is a coastal part of farming sector in South Africa it is presented with a unique opportunity. Even if the water from the ocean cannot be used directly at present, the proximity to the ocean results in regular fog conditions. By setting up giant polypropylene nets facing the coast, when the fog blows in across these nets it will begin to condensate. Once the fog has condensed it can run down the netting into large pipes that line the bottom side. From there, these ‘tank’ pipes connect to irrigation pipes which act as hoses to carry the water either straight to thirsty crops or into storage tanks. This amazing system is actually fairly simple to make, and most of the materials can be picked up from your local farming irrigation suppliers. This method has proven to be highly effective around the Atacama Desert, the driest location on Earth, so it should definitely be able to make a difference for farming in South Africa. Aside from the mulch, everything you need to be more-water efficient is readily available from farming irrigation suppliers. These suppliers will also have advice on all sorts of handy tricks and methods, and whatever else you need you can get by contacting agricultural services and product providers in the AgriFoodSA Directory. Check it, and get started on making the difference that only you can make!

If you’re looking to makeover your space but don’t know where to start, look no further than where you wake up every morning! If you’re looking to make a positive change to the space around you, take a look at these five easy and inspired ideas for upgrading your bedroom for a green lifestyle! Rest Easy on a Green Mattress It’s estimated that most people will spend around ⅓ of their life in bed, which makes a great case for investing in a solid mattress! Rather than sleeping on the chemically-treated materials most traditional mattresses are made of, you can do yourself, your bedroom, and the environment a favor by opting for a green variety for a great night’s sleep. Keep an eye out for companies that rely on functional fibers like avocado, hemp, organic cotton, and natural latex, to name a few. Stay Soft and Sustainable with Bamboo Sheets If you can’t drop hundreds on a brand new mattress, or if you’re looking to cover that new purchase with something equally eco-friendly, look no further than a set of bamboo sheets. Bamboo bedding is known for being so luxuriously soft and sustainably sourced. Not only will you feel great about using your spending power to support green manufacturing, your skin will feel just as nice sleeping on the temperature-regulating properties of bamboo viscose. Bonus points: Because sheets made from bamboo fibers naturally block bacteria and odor, they’ll require less spins in that washing machine, which saves on water usage and electricity over time. Keep Surfaces Fresh with DIY Cleaners Part of going green is keeping clean, so you’ll want to be sure to keep surfaced sprayed and wiped down with something as gentle and friendly as the rest of your room. This one can obviously reach throughout the home, and costing only pennies to create, will allow for a little extra spending room to allow for upgrades in your nightly sanctuary. To create a totally natural and safe cleansing spray, simply mix one part vinegar with two parts water, and add several drops of your favorite essential oil for a sweet scent — our favorites include orange, lemongrass, and peppermint! Regulate Temps with Wooden Blinds Heating and cooling the interior of homes is a major use of resources, so the best way to keep energy use and utility costs low is to insulate those windows. One easy and basic way to do this is with a set of wooden blinds, which work to keep hot or cold air (depending on what you need) in or out of the room with the pull of a string. Search for eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, woven grass, or certain types of sustainably sourced hardwood for a look that’s both functional and chic. Use Energy Efficient Lights to Keep Things Easy on the Eyes If going green feels like an overwhelming undertaking, don’t worry! Easing into new things generally helps build stronger habits, and, honestly, there’s nothing green about throwing perfectly good items into the dump. A good place to start is with lighting. The next time your basic bulb burns out, replace it with an energy efficient variety, like halogen incandescents, LEDs, and compact fluorescents. Can’t keep track? No problem! Just look for the ENERGY STAR seal of approval the next time you shop. See? So simple!
  14. Electricity is an important resource to have in these times because it powers up all of the appliances in our homes. Unfortunately, this resource is expensive as time passes by. People are now looking for ways to save on electricity, but there is one way that would minimize its usage: Solar panels. Here are the benefits of installing solar panels in your home. Using Clean Energy Energy acquired through solar power systems is clean and pure, which is from the Sun. This allows you to have no greenhouse gas emissions in your homes and reduces fossil fuel dependence. This will make your family members healthier and stronger compared to other households in your neighborhood. Another problem with using fossil fuel is its limits. It will be consumed completely in the future and that will leave us with a few methods of generating energy. With the Sun as our resource, it will be a long time before we run out of its energy, if it ever will. Saves Us Money Since fossil fuel will be limited in the near future, its prices will go higher. This will become a problem for everyone who is not that financially stable. Global warming will also cost the human society trillions of dollars if it is not solved. Solar panels will save us a lot of money if we use them in our homes. Some popular sunny states like California have projected savings of over $30,000. You will only get to use electricity from power plants for appliances that need steady electricity like refrigerators. Solar panels can be used to power up lights and other small appliances. Performance Is Guaranteed Solar panel manufacturers guarantee that their products will have a 20 to 25 year warranty. Also known as the performance guarantee, this is the industry standard for all solar panels and it guarantees their customers an 80 percent performance success after 25 years. The lifespan of the products is actually longer, which is 30 to 40 years with good production of electricity for your homes. Great Bonuses The Federal Solar Tax Credit that implemented the $2,000 cap was lifted since 2009, which will now give you some financial incentives. Just like the Houston solar panels, homeowners can now get 30 percent of system costs back, which are for the equipment and the installation. Companies like O & M Construction can give you a lot of savings for their services. The total costs can be cut in half if the rebates from local and state are added. Maintenance Is Easy The best part of having solar panels installed in your homes is its easy maintenance. You only need a yearly checkup and cleaning of the solar panels to keep them working properly. The panels do not have any moving parts, which makes them easier to clean. They are also made from durable materials, which can make them last longer Solar energy panels provide you with a lot of benefits, which are all good for everyone and the environment. Hopefully in the long run, most countries will use this type of energy system to save the planet.
  15. I-The economic bureaucratic process Years ago, bureaucracy was killing people more than wars. Up to now, many countries are suffering from the same dilemma. Max Weber the Godfather of bureaucracy says in his essays that “the mere fact of bureaucratic organization does not unambiguously tell us about the concrete direction of its economic effects, which are always in some manner present, but that bureaucracy can be structured to encourage economic growth”. He unfortunately did not live to witness the disastrous effect of bureaucracy on investments in our modern world. At that time, 1968, the world believed in vertical relationships based on the principle of rule-order. Afterward, socio-economists proved clearly enough that this theory is causing a paralyzed commerce and hindering the economic growth. The ineffectiveness of bureaucratic process lies in its long and infinite journey of paperwork, hierarchal structures, and indirectness of the chain suppliers. Paperwork process is, now, old fashioned and useless. Countries, firms and entrepreneurs were always wasting their money, time and energy just to find a good business opportunity. Even more, to apply for a tender or a procurement was sheer distress. In fact, in the energy sector, how to find electrical tenders and business opportunities were the question of the century. Tendering via paperwork process holds implicitly, sometimes, nepotism, discrimination and preferential behaviors in terms of bidding procedure and results. This is, somehow, due to the presence of third party who are responsible for decision-making. Eventually, this backward procedure could generates conflicts and less economic prosperity. II-The digital process of tendering: thinking out of the box The bureaucratic system has been left behind with the invention of digital processes. The ever-changing façade of digital world is the result of the rapid pace of innovation. Digitizing commerce has been always a cornerstone step that the wealthiest electrical energy companies have ever taken. The beginning was with a group of people who thought out of the box and out of the rule-order regime. Information technology (IT) solutions have been the result of a new generation‘s creativity. Now forget about hundreds of requested papers, documents and the need of physical presence in order to bid for a tender or to seize an opportunity you were dreaming about. The routine tasks are over. All what you have to do is to scan, save and send; I would call the “3s” process, then your company will be ready to bid for any procurement or tender. (See the image below to better grasp the meaning). a) Digital provides a flow of data: Oppositely to the past, data in the digital world is unlimited. Contrary to the previous decade, where information was rare and the holder of any piece of information was ruling the world (who owns the information owns power theory). They had the tendency of monopolizing business opportunities and tenders in particular. Technically speaking, monopolizing economy was possible before the appearance of technology, but now, it is impossible to do so. Contemporarily, data is flowing in an infinite way through internet. Like it or not economy is more and more relying on technology and depending on data provided there. The quantity of data displayed in the internet about commercial transactions is huge. Businessmen who are looking for business opportunities on the web should search in that unlimited set of websites and certainly they would find good affairs. Specifically, electricity procurements published from a governmental or private body would be surely getting interesting bids. Digital provides support and easiness Web based tendering facilitates the whole process. Tendering through platforms is the easiest way to publish your procurement and have the best bids. Maybe one would ask; what is exactly a platform? Many platforms are working now to provide that easiness of transaction. Even though these platforms are sometimes heavily paid, one have to admit that they are providing a wide range of services and benefits. Not forget to mention that there are other platforms, in the energy sector, which are operational, trustworthy, and available for free such as e-electricity.com platform. It is a business-to-business (B2B) platform that provides a ground for affairs to grow larger. This kind of networks are considered very affordable (in the example mentioned below it is even free) and open for business opportunity seekers to find their objectives (for the supplier) and their needs (for the tenderer) . c) Digital provides a direct contact To empower and enlarge your list of suppliers in the field of renewable and nonrenewable energy is an essential step towards prosperous business. E commerce has a huge impact and influence on the suppliers and on the supply chain itself. Technology has initiated what is called the decentralization of power of the information. Nowadays, the channels of communication in commerce have shifted from the physical contact to digital contact. Being able to travel and search for the best business opportunity is costly and futile. Now, e-commerce and platforms in particular has changed the vision of future of marketing once and forever. Renewable Energy tenders would benefit from a full list of electrical energy companies and manufacturers, which are instantly contacting them and making bids for the tenders ‘published. d) Digital accuracy and speed: Stakeholders, such as member States, industries companies of electrical equipment are looking for the best way to interact and share information. The accessibility of data, supplier and customer makes the whole process faster and more useful. A comprehensive inclusive dialogue between the trios mentioned above -within a digitized process -is necessary in order to reach the ultimate goal, which is finding business opportunity. Not only finding the electrical tender of your dream but also finding it in an accurate and speedy way. Global electrical tenders are available to top electric supply and equipment companies to bid and catch the deal. Platforms advisers and support teams are willing to help industrial electrical companies to make the best bid decisions, and to deliver the requested added value to both the tenderer and the bidder. e) Fairness and transparency Tenders found in digital platforms are always based on two main principles: fairness and transparency. The procedure is always clear and concise. After that a governmental electricity procurement or tender is published, the portal of participation would be widely open for every company in a fair way. Unless that you submit the bid for any tender after its deadline or that you do not meet the criteria needed; you would be probably gaining the business opportunity of your life. You only have to send an online quote to the tenderer and wait for the result. The bids will be studied and the results are to be displayed online with total transparency. Any nepotism, discrimination or preferential behaviors are refused and the perpetrator will be sanctioned.
