After SENVION has massively laid off in the last half year, also NORDEX announces reduction of 400-500 work places.
" ....as a reaction to reduced buyers interest and due to changes in the market conditions in Germany, Nordex has launched a program for cost reduction program of 45 mio E...."
Here you see the reality of the much celebrated hoax of "wind energy becomes cheap". Some laymen still think about technical improvements. The reality: Wind power did not BECOME cheaper but was PRESSED down in price. That is the difference.
Let us see what the coming German government says about renewable energy:
CDU: "The Energiewende has to be organised according to the free market in order to save the competitiveness of the German Economy. Electricity has to stay in a payable level......by changes of the subsidy system the cost of wind- and solar installations has been drastically lowered...."
(proud of destruction?)
FDP: "The renewable energies are an important part of the future energy mix, but they shall fully and alone obey the rules of the market. The EEG law....shall be ended." (Back to coal and nuclear)
SPD: ."..conventional energy like gas shall accompany the exploration of renewable energy...."
(And what about wind and solar?)
Left Party: "...is heading for renewable energy .....the electricity and district heating grids shall be in public hands. Until 2020 the share of renewables shall rise to 43 percent, until 2030 to 70 percent and until 2040 to 100 percent. A reform of the EEG law shall assist in achieving these aims." (The only reasonable program here, but these guys get below 10% of the votes)
Greens: "The EEG shall be developed further, the upper limits for installations cancelled and the surcharge lowered." (surcharge lowered? Join the CDU)
AfD: "...wants to cancel the EEG subsidy law....wind power shall be stopped completely, because it results in more damage than benefits for humans, animals and landscape." (So we were 40 years on the wrong way without noticing it?)
A probable CDU-FDP coalition will kill wind power in the name of "free market" and "competitiveness".
Denmark will furthermore take over the international leadership due to the continuous broadband and massive support of their government. German wind power experts will have to go to China. Good luck that I am already here.
Three Tai-Féngs caused a lot of damage in Zhu-Hai and Macao, also our workshop was damaged. In Zhong-Shan the storm was still moderate.
In October I will be in Finland and Germany to take care of private affairs and business matter.
