Sick since a wind park was installed

Video by the German Association for Noise Pollution Protection of Humans and Animals (Deutsche Schutz-Gemeinschaft Schall für Mensch und Tier - DSGS e.V.). English translation by NA-PAW.org — Subtitles by Friends-Against-Wind.org. “Unexplained medical emergencies and illness. As in the case of increased medical emergencies, accidents, and psychological symptoms with foehn (hot southerly winds on the northern slopes of the Alps [translator: similar to Chinooks]), the same is true for residents near wind turbines.”

Germany awards 476 megawatts in latest undersubscribed onshore wind auction

“This is now the 3rd German onshore wind auction in a row that’s been under-subscribed,” explained WindEurope CEO Giles Dickson. “It’s clear the permitting process is not fit for purpose.

Windmill fire on the Langenhard

LAHR Germany -  Early Friday morning at 2.30 am police reported a turbine fire on the Langenhard near Lahr. At the same time, the Integrated Control Center Ortenau received the message that a wind turbine was burning on the Langenhard. The fire had already been seen on the way to the equipment house of the Seelbach Fire Department, said Operations Manager Bernd Wagner. This was his second wind turbine fire. The first was in 2013 - also on the Langenhard. Efforts to extinguish the fire remain highly dangerous because of the height of the turbine and the falling debris. Therefore, the fire department has cordoned off a radius of 500 meters, according to Wagner. A police helicopter was also requested to take survey photos and look for possible forest fires. The fire is over but the work is still ongoing. The fire department is preparing for a long operation.

However, Innogy explained that "particularly low wind levels, especially in the second and third quarters of 2018 in the UK and Germany, led to reduced utilisation of existing plants".
