“830 wind turbines turn in Hesse”


The economy minister of the state of Hesse Tarek Al-Wazir called the federal economy ministry’s plan to declare parts of the state as grid congestion zones “ludicrous” and “preposterous,” writes the Rhein-Main-Zeitung. This would “vaporise the Energiewende in Hesse from one day to the next,” said Al-Wazir. The government plans to streamline wind power development and grid expansion to make sure that all renewable energy can be transported and used.
