The installed wind energy capacity in Latvia is the third smallest in the European Union

Andris Vanags, Head of the Latvian Wind Energy Association, says: “We are pleased to join the leading European wind organization, which represents the interests of industry, makes a serious contribution to the field of public education and the development of wind energy in general. This is especially important now, when overcoming the consequences of the crisis, the development of wind energy will ensure Latvia’s economic growth and the achievement of climate goals ”.

“We are pleased to admit the Latvian Wind Energy Association to the WindEurope membership. Latvia has great ambitions in the field of renewable energy production, committing to produce at least 50% of electricity from renewable resources by 2030. Wind will also make a significant contribution, increasing production capacity from 66 MW to 800 MW in ten years. It will also allow Latvians to reap the employment and social benefits of wind power generation: the sector currently employs 300,000 people across Europe and invests an average of € 25 billion a year, ”says Giles Dickson, WindEurope CEO. .

Diksons also notes the importance of state policy in the development of renewable energy: “We hope to work closely with the Latvian Wind Energy Association and the Minister of Economics of the Republic of Latvia Jānis Vitenbergs, working on a policy that would promote the full use of wind energy potential.”

Latvia currently has the third smallest installed wind energy capacity in the European Union (66 MW), ahead of only Slovenia and Slovakia. In Lithuania, wind energy capacity is eight times higher than in Latvia (548 MW), but in Estonia – almost five times higher (320 MW). * It should be reminded that the National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030. It is planned to install 800 MW of wind energy capacity in Latvia by. In Europe, the total wind power capacity reached 205 GW last year. In 2019, new wind farms with a capacity of 15.4 GW were established in Europe (13.2 GW in the European Union).

“In order to achieve the set goals, a lot of work needs to be done in Latvia in the next decade. The political will and the breaking of myths in society are important for this. While we avoid the unknown and fear, wind has long been a full-fledged source of energy across Europe, providing 15% of all electricity consumed. And it is important to get rid of the ghosts of the past – wind is a renewable energy that can competitively enter the market, ”emphasizes A. Vanags.

The Wind Energy Association has been operating since 2006, and its goal is to promote the use of wind energy in Latvia by participating in the regulation of the industry and the environment, as well as to promote public awareness and understanding of renewable energy sources, especially wind energy.

The story of Kiivitch’s wife Madara: “He will already wake up from that pink cloud”

Kivičs himself, when asked about the reasons for the breakdown of the relationship, tried to explain the situation to the magazine. “Well, imagine … If you haven’t loved me for a whole year or don’t want my closeness. Gadu! Well what to do? Need to live on? And if there is a difference of opinion on every issue that is outside the children. For every question… ”dissatisfaction in married life is expressed by the musician.

“On a trip to Norway last summer, we went with the idea that the time spent together might give a spark to our relationship,” explains the musician. “You know, it’s like you can already live.” You can raise two children together with a very good friend. In principle, you can live like that, but I can’t live like that, ”says Kiivičs thoughtfully, who last week openly went out in public with his new girlfriend Lieni Skulmi – at the big concert” My friend Mārtiņš Freimanis “.

Madara’s story

Madara also agreed to reveal the nuances of the dissolution of the marriage to the magazine “Kas Jauns”. She talks reluctantly about married life and relationships, it is felt that this is a difficult time for the musician’s spouse and she suffers most from her husband’s betrayal and disrespect.

“I wouldn’t want to go down to the level of lies and ‘teens’ until then. The man will “wake up from that pink cloud”. We haven’t even really talked about each other’s problems, we haven’t saved the relationship, because there wasn’t even really anything to save, ”says Madara. She admits that until recently, Andris was satisfied with everything that happened in the family. “Everything was good at the beginning of the summer, as evidenced by Andris’ very frequent videos, pictures and comments about a nice family life. And it is not true that there has been a crisis in the family for years or other reasons for its breakdown, ”says Kivičs’ wife.

What, then, was the cause of the relationship crisis? “Unfortunately, something happened to him during the last six months. I don’t know what it was and is … I feel sorry for her, because one day she will wake up to a clear consciousness and realize that all good has disappeared. “

I was one of the few people who supported him even when everyone said he was an idiot. But if I don’t appreciate all the good, I can’t do anything there.

“I’m thinking about myself and the girls right now. Andris gave me a lot, but he also took a lot away. I won’t be deprived of my respect,” says Madara, who is most hurt by the disrespect from her husband, which is currently felt in all his actions.

Kivičs hid the side steps with Skulmi

“I understand everything, a person can fall in love. But Andris has shown me a lot of disrespect. Of course, I won’t cry about it, because it’s not worth it. He will not get the idea either, because he has a different priority right now. It just seems hypocritical to me – people are divorced, there is a new passion, and then automatically everything that has been good is “knocked out” … “

Gentlemen don’t do that. What is happening now is such hypocrisy, such lies!

“Everything is done so that Liene is not guilty of breaking up the family. Most of what she says about divorce is a lie. What year when we had a broken relationship? It is clear that it is a couple of months. Don’t lie. You have to be honest – if you tell something, then tell the story as it really is, “Madara is outraged. She has a hunch that it is Skulme who is provoking Andrew to say such things to denigrate the couple’s marriage.

“They both know what they have done. It seems that Liene is forcing Andris to slander our relationship, including the relationship that Andris had before me. I have never done so and I will not do it. All this is already beneficial for Liene. Liene has no one to support her and her children. Well, she has found one, ”says Madara.

“I knew that something was going to happen to him and Lien. And it was not that he came honestly and told everything. It was not. I myself told him in a calm voice that I know everything about the relationship with Liene, about the specific facts, where and when they were together. Then it no longer makes sense to lie … Andris admitted. And he explained that he and Lien had to “spend more time together”, because then he couldn’t even really say what it was – whether it was falling in love or something else. They said that maybe we will be fine, ”says Kiiviča’s wife. Madara admits that Andrew has no way back to her: “I would never take a man back.”

What harsh and less harsh words Madara still dedicates to Andris, which he and his newcomer wish, and what the twists and turns of Kiivi’s love life over the years, read in this week’s magazine “Kas Jauns”!
