Poland blocks imports of German wind and solar energy….

As AIAS Fellow Gari Owen pointed out recently on this blog, using a simple but ocnlusive calculation, wind turbines are not only dangerously inefficient like this, bu twill never be able to generate enough electricity. This is also the view of myself as a Pensioner of the Civil List employed directly by the British Head of State, Queen Elizabeth II, of AIAS, and also the view of the Chief Scientific Advisor to the British Government, which should be preparing to abandon its policy and drop turbine subsidies. I advocate a cross party Land Act in the Commons to nationalize land to prevent this kind of greed ridden fiasco occurring. In Wales for example, Beaufort’s lands should be taken away from him without compensation because of his offensive contempt of democracy.

Poland blocks imports of German wind and solar energy as it destabilises their grid and makes their power stations run inefficien​tly.

Border blockade for green electricity: Because the Polish network operator fears an overload, he wants to prevent the import of wind and solar power from Germany. The head of the German Energy Agency is now calling on SPIEGEL negotiations with the neighboring country.

Hamburg – On the way to energy policy, Germany has to overcome many hurdles. One of them may soon emerge on the German-Polish border: A map of Poland, green electricity from Germany to regulate more, alarmed, according to a report obtained by SPIEGEL, German energy expert. “When excess wind and solar power can not be discharged abroad, then the German power grid unstable,” warns the head of the German Energy Agency (Dena), Stephan Kohler.

The background is that the Polish network operator PSE Operator is planning to build on the value of current locks. This is to prevent the Federal Republic of forwards excess eco-electricity. The operators of Polish coal-fired power plants must in such cases the plants shut down suddenly to avoid an overload. In Warsaw, one worries that the ongoing high-power stations and shutdown are not up to it and by an unexpected surplus of energy could even lead to a blackout.

Therefore, in future, so-called phase-shift interrupt the current flow between the two countries. Surplus energy would then be distributed in the German network, which would increase this side of the border, the risk of blackouts.

Dena Head Kohler is now demanding an accelerated expansion of power lines from eastern to southern Germany. “The federal government also needs to quickly get in touch with Poland and other neighboring countries, negotiations to the European energy policy to vote,” said Kohler.”
