This will result in serious financial hardship for farmers across the country.“It’s particularly worrying that less than 4 per cent of GLAS payments have been made. The government failed to allocate the level of funding that it originally promised for this scheme, and now it’s failing to pay out. This is a completely unacceptable situation.“Payments under TAMS and the Beef Genomics Scheme are also seriously behind schedule. These underspends are significant by any metric and will have serious consequences for small family farmers.“Many farmers have had to take out loans to keep their businesses going while they wait for their payments to come through, and these delays will exacerbate an already difficult situation. Farmers should not have to rely on banks and other financial institutions to cover the cost of works, which these agri-schemes cover. This is creating a major cash flow crisis, which is completely preventable.“This has been a very difficult year for farmers, and these underspends and delayed payments are making a bad situation worse. I am urging Minister Creed to ensure that these payments are forthcoming this month and that farmers are not left in the lurch”.

More Transmission Would Speed Coal Plant Closures Says German Regulator

first_imgMore Transmission Would Speed Coal Plant Closures Says German Regulator FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:FRANKFURT—Germany could reduce its coal-fired power generation capacity by half in the coming years if planned grid expansion and the addition of new gas-fired plants come online on schedule, the head of its energy regulator said.“Half of coal-fired power plant capacity can disappear by 2030 without any risk to supply,” Jochen Homann, president of the Bundesnetzagentur or Federal Network Agency, told German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in an interview.His comments come ahead of a year-end deadline for a commission to submit plans to the German government for an exit from coal-fired energy. Germany aims to raise wind and solar power’s energy share from a third now to 65 percent by 2030 to help to cut carbon dioxide emissions and achieve its climate commitments, in line with the wishes of the new coalition government.Homann reiterated that grid expansion would be needed to meet those goals. “If you want more green energy faster, then you have to accept grid expansion,” he told the paper.He said the lack of grid capacity is likely to have raised the cost of ensuring a stable energy supply system to a record of more than 1 billion euros ($1.18 billion) in 2017.More: Germany Could Shut Down Half Of Its Coal Capacity: Regulatorlast_img read more
