“Denmark is a world champion in balancing large quantities of wind energy,” Hylleberg said. ”This is really gratifying, and we are approaching a milestone with fast paces, where wind turbines cover half our electricity consumption on average. I expect this to happen during 2020 or by 2021, when the next 600 MW offshore wind farm Krigers Flak is expected to be operational.” Danish wind turbines produced 16TWh of electricity in 2019, a 15% increase compared to 13.9TWh of electricity produced in 2018, and an 8.1% increase compared to the second-best result of 14.8TWh recorded in 2017. ”However, the 2020s will be the decade when we will really start to put the green power into use in our heating and transport, and not least for the production of green fuels such as hydrogen and ammonia.” This is a 3.5% increase in the share of wind energy in the mix compared to the country’s second-best result of 43.4% set in 2017. The price of the electricity generated by wind turbines fell by 12.7% compared to the previous year, Wind Denmark said. The increase in the wind energy share was attributed to the start of operations at the 407MW Horns Rev 3 offshore wind farm. “2019 looks like an average wind year, but Horns Rev 3 of 407 MW was connected to the grid, which is why we now see a big leap in the production of green power from wind turbines,” said Jan Hylleberg, CEO of Wind Denmark. Electricity produced by wind turbines covered 46.9% of consumption in Denmark in 2019, setting a new record for the country and for the world, according to Wind Denmark.

Messi’s father Jorge purchased a luxury apartment in the centre of Milan a couple of months ago, prompting Gazzetta dello Sport speculation that the player would soon follow. That wasn’t just a real estate deal, it allowed Jorge Messi to register Italy as his main residence, which in turn means he can benefit from the tax law meant to encourage foreign investment in the country. read also:Messi in talks with Guardiola over Man City switch This was cited as one of the reasons Cristiano Ronaldo chose to leave Real Madrid for Juventus in 2018. Meanwhile, RMC Sport in France are confident the only candidates who can genuinely sign Messi are Inter and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. Inter ‘have a clear advantage over PSG, Manchester City and Manchester United’ in the race to sign Lionel Messi because of a tax law, according to Mundo Deportivo. The club legend sent a fax demanding he be released from his contract a year early as a free agent, although Barcelona maintain the clause allowing that has expired. If he does leave, then there are only a select number of European clubs who can afford to pay his wages. “Inter have a clear advantage over PSG, Manchester City and Manchester United, which is Italy’s taxation laws,” wrote Mundo Deportivo writer Francesc Aguilar on Twitter. “Inter could deal with the transfer operation more easily and Leo would have fewer taxes to pay than in Spain or England.” Messi famously was involved in a tax evasion scandal and trial involving his father in 2016.Advertisement FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享
Press Association He added: “We played a good first half then at the start of the second half their player kicked the ball to the corner and I said something to him. We exchanged a couple of words but it wasn’t something bad, just something that happens 10 to 15 times in a game. “After that, when he started to run, he was maybe two or three yards away from me. I didn’t have the intention to spit on him – but it looked like that. The referee was close to me and saw that. This is not good for me because over the last two or three nights I have not slept too good. Something like this has never happened in my life.” Popov also wants to put the record straight with Baggies fans, after becoming a popular figure at West Brom following his loan from Dynamo Kyiv last August. Popov said. “I’m not happy with what I did on Sunday. When the referee sent me off it totally changed the game. “The players were angry after the game, and some of them – the ones who have been a long time at this club – said to me they are disappointed in me. I want to say sorry to all my friends, team-mates, to all the physical staff and the coaching staff. Everyone can make mistakes, life is like this. Football is up and down. “Tomorrow I want to have a meeting and I want to say sorry to everyone who works at this club. I don’t want all the fans, players, trainers and staff to change their mind about me. I’m not that kind of player.” Popov also revealed he is trying to get in touch with England international Walker in a bid to say sorry in person following the incident. Popov said: “I’m trying to get a phone number for Kyle Walker but he is now with his national team. When I get his number I will call him and just say ‘I’m not a player like this, I didn’t want to do this to him and a big sorry’. I wish good luck to Walker and England against Brazil.” The Macedonia international was sent off three minutes into the second half in the match at The Hawthorns for spitting towards Kyle Walker. Popov apologised to fans via Twitter after the game, but on Wednesday made a full apology. The 28-year-old said in a statement released by the club: “I just want to say a big sorry to everyone, firstly to the gaffer because he was so angry after the game and, if I was in his place, I would be exactly the same, and to all the players.” West Brom defender Goran Popov has made an official apology after he was sent off in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League defeat against Tottenham for spitting.

998Iditarod prize moneyThe total prize purse is about $500,000, with the winner taking home about $50,000 and a new pickup truck.The reward for the last musher who crosses the finish line and completes the Iditarod is called the Red Lantern Award. It is a symbol of perseverance for the team, and instead of being a consolation prize, gives the musher and dogs a sense of pride and accomplishment for finishing. The competition is one of the most difficult in the world, as competitors can face blizzards that cause whiteouts and wind conditions that create temperatures as low as -100 degrees Fahrenheit. During the 2020 race, deep snow has been one of the key factors slowing down sled teams so far.Here is everything you need to know about the race, including prize money, the dogs, and controversy.What is the Iditarod?The Iditarod is the most famous dog-sled race in the world. The annual race is run every year through the entire state of Alaska, from Anchorage to Nome. It began in 1973 as an event to test the best sled dog mushers and teams, but eventually became the competitive race we see today. The teams consist of a musher and 14 dogs. The race generally takes anywhere from 8-15 days, though the longest ever was was 32.5 days. MORE: Coronavirus updates: Sports figures who have tested positive for COVID-19Breakdown of a sled teamMusher: the human guiding the dogs and directing the sled. The term is believed to have originated from the French, whose command “marche” (to walk) sounds very similar to “mush,” the command used to get the dogs to move.The dogs on the team have positions relative to their placement ahead of the sled. Lead dogs: steer the rest of the team and set the pace. This is usually one or two dogs, with two being more common.Swing dogs: directly behind the lead dog. They swing the rest of the team behind them in turns or curves on the trail.Wheel dogs: closest to the sled and musher. This dog is traditionally strong and not spooked easily by the sled directly behind it.Team dogs: between the wheel dogs and the swing dogs, they add power to the team. This term also applies to any dog on the team.Iditarod 2020 standingsThomas Waerner (Norway) won the 2020 Iditarod race, crossing the finish line early morning on March 18 with a total race time of nine days, 10 hours, 37 minutes and 47 seconds.

The rule was adopted in the early 1990s after musher John Suter entered the 1988 competition with standard European poodles on his dogsled team. MORE: Sportsbooks now accepting bets on weather in lieu of live sportsIditarod 2020 trail mapThe Iditarod race has two routes: the northern trail is used during even years, and the southern trail during odd years. The entire route is a part of the Iditarod National Historical Trail, but in the beginning, smaller villages were heavily impacted by the race coming through their village every year. The decision was made to switch paths every other year.NORTHERN ROUTE They call it “The Last Great Race on Earth” and with pretty much every sporting event canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, it’s now just the last race on earth at all.The 2020 Iditarod began on March 8, and teams are now starting to cross the finish line. Thomas Waerner of Norway, who is only in his second ever Iditarod, won the race, enterting Nome overnight on March 18. Five teams have withdrawn from the race so far.

The Iditarod claims that they take excellent care of the dogs, and many mushers feel like the dogs are part of their own family. All dogs are examined before the race and a veterinarian signs off on a food diary at checkpoints. The dogs are considered well-trained athletes.Several sponsors, including Wells Fargo, Alaska Airlines, and Fiat Chrysler have dropped out in recent years. PETA has claimed that pressure from their organization has made sponsors listen to their claims of abuse and decide to no longer support the race. Iditarod CEO Stan Hooley even said that he believed Wells Fargo’s decision was connected to the activists’ implications of cruelty to dogs.In 2018, the Iditarod created a rule that mushers who have a dog die during the race will be out of the race that year, unless the death “was caused solely by unforeseeable, external forces.” Checkpoints Distance between Checkpoints* Distance from Anchorage Distance to Nome Anchorage to Campbell Airstrip 1111964Willow to Yentna Station4253922Yentna Station to Skwentna3083892Skwentna to Finger Lake40123852Finger Lake to Rainy Pass30153822Rainy Pass to Rohn35188787Rohn to Nikolai75263712Nikolai to McGrath48311664McGrath to Takotna18329646Takotna to Ophir23352623Ophir to Cripple73425550Cripple to Ruby70495480Ruby to Galena50545430Galena to Nulato37582393Nulato to Kaltag47629346Kaltag to Unalakleet85714261Unalakleet to Shaktoolik40754221Shaktoolik to Koyuk50804171Koyuk to Elim48852123Elim to Golovin2888095Golovin to White Mountain1889877White Mountain to Safety5595322Safety to Nome229750TOTAL DISTANCE 975 SOUTHERN ROUTE Checkpoints Distance between Checkpoints* Distance from Anchorage Distance to Nome Anchorage to Campbell Airstrip 1111987Willow to Yentna Station4253945Yentna Station to Skwentna3083915Skwentna to Finger Lake40123875Finger Lake to Rainy Pass30153845Rainy Pass to Rohn35188810Rohn to Nikolai75263735Nikolai to McGrath48311687McGrath to Takotna18329669Takotna to Ophir23352646Ophir to Iditarod80432566Iditarod to Shageluk55487511Shageluk to Anvik25512486Anvik to Grayling18530468Grayling to Eagle Island62592406Eagle Island to Kaltag60652346Kaltag to Unalakleet85737261Unalakleet to Shaktoolik40777221Shaktoolik to Koyuk50827171Koyuk to Elim48875123Elim to Golovin2890395Golovin to White Mountain1892177White Mountain to Safety5597622Safety to Nome229980TOTAL DISTANCE
