Electricity rationing is coming - Green ideology failed

For several years now, the e-cars, BEV, eCar, electric cars and how you want to call all the crap then, state subsidized and gradually these get more freedom, so should be allowed from 2030 in Berlin only electric carsFrom 2030 only electric cars will be allowed in Berlin. Since the Green government (honestly, I hear more from the Greens than from the SPD, which with Olaf Scholz actually provides the Chancellor, but well) is in power, one hears a lot from the Green Party. Children's book author named Robert Habeck who controls and reprimands Germany's economy as Minister of Economics and a Green Minister of Foreign Affairs who likes to 180° confused with 360 and occasionally a country the declaration of war pronounces. So much for the everyday madness.

But coupled with the energy transition, and the (planned) shutdowns of nuclear power plants, as well as the end of coal-fired power generation in the next 20 years, the effects are already becoming apparent through rising prices for food and products, first large industries like BASF downsize and move production abroad or will outsource new jobs in the auto industry abroad. Because the Green ideology, pardon, the Green policy pushes the electric cars and wants to virtually force the use of heat pumps, because new buildings should offer a legally specified proportion of renewable energy for heat production in new buildings, From 2024, 65% of the heat demand is to be covered by renewable energies, financially it means that one must cover the heat requirement to 65% by solar plants (solar thermal and/or Photovoltaik), whether then still the installation of a gas boiler is economically worthwhile? Also a way to force the citizen to change.

But who says that this percentage will not be increased? Government intervention in the competitiveness and innovation of companies. If citizens are forced to buy solar, why invest and become cheaper? Hopefully you can figure out the rest.

Now there is a problem with the electric car and the heat pump, both want electricity and not a little, whereby heat pump is more efficient than a pure electric heating, but then many thousands or millions of heat pumps want to draw electricity from the grid and this must then also be available.

The same applies to the electric car, fast charging means that a lot of electricity must be available for a short time so that the car can charge quickly, but this requires that so much electricity is also available in the power grid and can also be called up in the local grid.

And that's the crux of it, if a lot of electric cars then want a lot of power at the same time, then there's a problem.

An analogy to this is a battery, if you have a high power demand, the voltage of the battery drops, as if you would squeeze it and you get the current out, but thus loads the capacity. Scaled to the power grid, it means that many power plants must then bring a lot of power, and where does the electricity come from, if at night no sun shines and no wind blows? From abroad, and at high prices, with limited import capacities (as of 2023, this is 18 GW of capacity for Germany, which can be imported from neighboring countries via transmission lines).

But such concerns were not addressed in the public media classified as an unlikely scenario, and now the whole thing looks different. The much propagated electric cars will no longer be able to charge as you want, but you will probably have to reserve a time slot every day, so that you have enough time to be able to charge your car, because if too many charge, the Federal Network Agency wants "a temporary current rationing" enforce. This means that entire regions will be switched off.


According to the newspaper report, the agency considers local low-voltage grids in particular to be susceptible to faults. The network agency has therefore published a key points paper that provides for temporary power rationing for heat pumps and electric car charging stations in times of high network utilization. According to the newspaper, grid operators would then be forced to throttle the power supply to the systems in a centrally coordinated manner. The plans for power rationing are to come into effect on Jan. 1, 2024, according to the report. Frankfurter Rundschau 06.02.2023

Also in Austria, ServusTV's news format "Servus Nachrichten" briefly touches on the fact that electricity rationing for charging electric cars, is to be introduced in Germany, starting in January 2024.

3 hours charging time, then only enough for 50km when the fast charging function is switched off and only with reduced power. Whether anyone still wants to do that voluntarily?
