Farmers lack animal feed: dry spring takes effect after

 Farmers lack animal feed: dry spring takes effect after The after-effects of dry spring pose problems for farmers even in autumn. "Animal feed is scarce," says Bernd Weber, spokesman for the Hessian farmers' association. The districts of Waldeck-Frankenberg, Hochtaunus and the Odenwald are badly affected. There, the grassland has grown very sparsely due to the lack of water. The farmers would have to buy additional feed or reduce the number of their animals. © Jan Woitas / dpa-Zentralbild / dpa / Symbolbild A lucerne grows in a dry field.

50Hertz connects the second offshore wind farm in the Baltic Sea , Baltic II , with the grid. The video explains the challenges.

The foreseen expansion of electricity generation sources in the Baltic countries, according to EU energy trends 2050, will result in fairly low The situation improved with new connections to Finland, Sweden and Poland which raised the interconnectivity of the Baltic States with the EU electricity

This so-called Combined Grid Solution is intended to significantly increase the capacities for the exchange of electricity between the two countries and to link the European electricity market more closely. The new line is used, on the one hand, to transport the electricity produced by offshore wind farms on land and to exchange electricity between Denmark and Germany.

 EEG surcharge would have risen drastically The EEG surcharge for promoting green electricity would have risen to a record high next year - but the federal government has already announced a cap. © David Young / dpa wind turbines and a power pole are in Erkelenz.

According to information from the German Press Agency, the EEG surcharge in 2021 would otherwise have risen from around 6.8 cents

This wind farm is positioned in water depths of up to 129m, whereas those fixed to the seabed are generally at depths of up to 50m. Bird charity RSPB Scotland opposed the project, not because it dislikes the technology but because it believes too many offshore turbines in the area have already

“This is something that will be available for the first time worldwide and certainly not for the last time,” said the head of the East German transmission network operator 50Hertz, Stefan Kapferer, at a ceremony in Berlin. Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier (CDU), Danish Energy Minister Dan Jørgensen and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania's Energy Minister Christian Ebene (SPD) also took part in the event.

50Hertz operates the new grid connection together with the Danish transmission system operator Energinet. According to 50Hertz, the project costs 300 million euros and is half financed by the EU. The other half is therefore shared by Energieset and 50Hertz. The German offshore wind farm Baltic 2 and the Danish wind farm Kriegers Fla k , which is currently under construction, are connected - both are only around 25 kilometers apart.
