Comments Off on Baltic Energy Alliance: active involvement of international business is essential to guarantee the successful discussion on Nord Stream 2
An active involvement of an international business players both from East and West is essential to guarantee the diversity and success for large scale multinational energy projects. Such a dialogue will also serve as a good basis of providing sound arguments on initiatives of key importance such as Nord Stream 2 development which is currently being interpreted differently and raises a lot of emotional discussions.
As indicated by Mr. Maris Sproga, the developer of Baltic Energy Alliance, for a commodity of strategic importance as gas is, it is crucial to evaluate all the pros and cons within an independent center of excellency involving all the relevant stakeholders and to provide balanced arguments for the decision makers while avoiding being populistic. Also the Nord Stream 2 consortium itself has to be a lot more active when dealing with different opionions to clarify the concerns raised over the project in a transparent manner. The proper stakeholder relations is of key importance for a [...]
Comments Off on Initiative regarding Nord Stream 2 is being developed in the Baltic Sea region
Baltic Energy Alliance – the name of a concept organization aimed towards key gas business and policy issues within the Baltic Sea region. It was announced during Baltic Energy Forum in Riga, Latvia last year officially and is on its way to establishment this year with its legal status as a foundation.

Comments Off on The discussion on Nord Stream 2 – one of the main tasks for Baltic Energy Alliance
The concept of Baltic Energy Alliance (BEA) as a potential center for excellency in energy was presented last week in the Baltic Energy Forum 2015 and an active involvement in the Nord Stream 2 project will be one of its main tasks.
Maris Sproga, the developer of Baltic Energy Alliance: “ Nord Stream 2 is a project that will impact the Baltics and other countries in the context of common EU energy policy and there has been no any serious discussions apart from emotions so far. Taking into account the vision for Baltic Energy Alliance to be an international center for excellency, dealing with synergy of energy policy and business, a serious analysis and discussion on Nord Stream 2 is of key importance. “
BEA is planning to facilitate and engage in discussions on the energy policy and business within and around the Baltic Sea region. Nord Stream 2, [...]
Comments Off on 2014 Porsche Boxster Type S Convertible
A roadster is not simply a car. The Boxster is not simply a roadster. It’s a sports car that brings you closer to the road, closer to real life and connects you with your own free spirit. The precise, lightweight chassis ensures an impressively dynamic drive, with practically no body roll or pitch. Or, in short, a safer and more comfortable drive.
Power is transmitted to the road by 18-inch Boxster wheels. Their distinctive five-spoke design affords an unobstructed glimpse of the braking system’s black four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers. And you can keep an eye on the pressure in all four tyres thanks to tire pressure monitoring (TPM). The large air inlets illustrate character. The sound produced by the central tailpipe in brushed stainless steel is unmistakably Porsche.
High-quality, stylish materials are used in the interior. The steering wheel rim, gear lever/selector and door pull inlays are finished in leather. The refined tone is [...]
Comments Off on 2009 Porsche Carrera 4S Turbo Convertible
Open-top driving is integral to Porsche history. It began back in 1948 with the No. 1. The convertible variant of the first 356 became a legend, as did its descendent, the Porsche 550 Spyder. In 1982, the first 911 Carrera model in cabriolet form was introduced to the road.
Two things that all open-top Porsche cars have in common are an urge for sporty acceleration and unlimited driving pleasure. The time has come to carry this tradition on into the future. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet does just that.
That explains what motivates us; so let’s describe what drives the car: the 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus, which produces 400 hp at 7400 rpm. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187 mph.
Without question, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has remained faithful to [...]
Comments Off on 2014 Porsche GTS Sedan Executive Edition
Let’s be honest: children rarely dream of being an overworked entrepreneur. Even now, they are far more likely to dream about sports cars. And what about years later, when success has been achieved? Do we really have to sacrifice the dream simply because leading a full life no longer leaves any time – or room – for a sports car?
No, we don’t. Not at Porsche anyway. With the Panamera Turbo S Executive, the Panamera Turbo Executive and the Panamera 4S Executive, you have the best of both worlds: you can go for a sporty spin in the driver’s seat and concentrate on finishing your work in the comfort of the rear. Not at the same time, obviously, but certainly in the same car, thanks to an extra 15 cm added to the length of the body. The additional space benefits the rear passengers the most, particularly on long journeys. Here, you can do something [...]
Comments Off on 2014 Porsche Cayenne GTS Sport Utility
The prowess of the new Cayenne is clearly reflected in the design: the front and rear sections have been completely revised. They are now sharper and even more sophisticated. The new hood, new front fenders, new main headlights and modified air intakes lend the car even greater presence. It is more athletic and muscular than ever before.
The precisely contoured sides make it clear that this is a sports car with character and stature. The new exterior mirrors with integrated indicators and wheels in a range of sizes up to 21 inches – with new attractive styling – serve to emphasize the car’s dynamics. An impression that is confirmed by a number of other new details including the standard daytime running lights featuring four integral LED daytime running lights, as well as the new LED taillights and integrated tailpipes.
Every detail has been used to highlight what matters most to you: the sporting credibility that [...]
Comments Off on 2015 Porsche GTS Panamera Demonstrator
The Panamera models reconcile contradictions. They are vitalised by the conflict between comfort and dynamics and between sporty performance and efficiency. Can three letters intensify this conflict? The answer is seen on racetracks and on roads. That’s where Porsche has written the abbreviation GTS into history – and is how the Panamera GTS has become the thoroughbred athlete of the family.
The figures sum it up: 324 kW (440 hp) power output and a maximum torque of 520 Nm. The 4.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine with ram induction is extremely responsive. 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the active allwheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM) transmit the engine power of the Panamera GTS adeptly to the tarmac. The sports exhaust system and the adaptive air suspension with ‘normal level’ lowered by 10 mm are fitted as standard. The brake system, wheels, front end and four-way rear spoiler have been carried over from the Panamera Turbo. [...]
