Brazil faces economic pain as Amazon rainforest destruction dries up water resources

COPENHAGEN, Nov. 25 (Reuters) – Denmark will hold a raffle on Dec. 1 to choose the winner of a competition to build the 1 gigawatt Thor offshore wind farm, which will be the country’s largest, after several bids were made with a minimum subsidy price close to zero, it said on Thursday.

The project is one of three major offshore wind farms that Denmark aims to have built by 2030 as part of its plans to reduce carbon emissions to 70% below 1990 levels by 2030.

The Danish Energy Agency said it invited a number of bidders to participate in the draw after receiving several offers for the minimum price of 0.01 øre/kWh (0.0001 Danish kroner) and the full capacity.

The tender is based on a so-called Contract for Difference (CfD) scheme, which means that the winner is guaranteed a minimum price for his electricity.

When the wholesale price for power rises above the CfD strike price, which in this case is close to zero, the generator will repay additional money to the government until a ceiling of 2.8 billion Danish kroner ($423 million) is reached.

This is likely to happen within two to three years and after that, according to the Danish wind lobby group WindDenmark, the generator will only monetize selling power at market terms.

Rising demand for wind energy, technological advances and competition among turbine manufacturers have led to a decline in the level of subsidies that governments pay to build projects. Some countries have even awarded tenders without price support. read more

The Danish project has attracted interest from traditional wind players such as Orsted (ORSTED.CO) and companies such as French oil giant TotalEnergies (TTEF.PA), who partnered with Spain’s Iberdrola (IBE.MC) for the auction.

Other bidders include Sweden’s Vattenfall, a joint venture between Dutch energy company Eneco and Danish European Energy, as well as a joint bid from UK utility SSE (SSE.L) and Thor OFW. The German RWE (RWEG.DE) also participates through a subsidiary.

Thor is expected to be connected to the grid between 2025 and 2027 and the total investment cost is estimated at 15.5 billion kroner.

The head of Siemens Gamesa (SGREN.MC) warned on Wednesday that a decade-long race to cut the cost of wind power generation could not continue because it would reduce the financial strength of turbine manufacturers to continue investing in new technologies. read more

The 10 Best Kid Friendly Restaurants in Hampshire According to TripAdvisor

With its mix of beautiful scenery and idyllic coastal towns, Hampshire is a major draw for families.

The county also has plenty of great restaurants, but which ones are the most kid-friendly for families to visit?

With that in mind, HampshireLive took a look at TripAdvisor and compiled a list of the 10 top-rated restaurants suitable for children.

READ MORE: I Tried McDonald’s Festive Menu and It Was Like Christmas Dinner in a Burger

1. Mexifun – Southampton

At the top of the list is this Mexican/Latin inspired restaurant with 177 reviews and an overall rating of five out of five. Of these reviews, 174 said it was ‘excellent’, while only one gave it a ‘poor’ grade.

It also caters to special diets, with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. Reviewers noted that the restaurant is small but has a welcoming atmosphere with very friendly staff.

2. Spices and Spirits – Basingstoke

Next up is Spices and Spirits, an Indian and Asian restaurant priced from £10 – £50. Over 379 reviews it has a five out of five rating and according to one reviewer it has a “great selection of street food such as pani puri, chaat and vegetarian dishes.”

The restaurant states that this is ‘not your typical curry house’ and warns that the spiciness of their food is often a bit higher, but that it is very tasty. So make sure you are a family that can handle hot food.

3. Miss Ellie’s Cafe – Southampton

Another five out of five reviews, this time from 178 reviewers. But it’s a complete contrast in price range to Spices and Spirits, with prices between £2 and £6.

The food is cooked fresh to order and many reviewers have complimented and described the full English breakfast as great value for money.

4. Saltwater – New Forest

Another cafe, this time Milford on Sea in the New Forest, with the highest marks out of five. One reviewer said “The Sushi Bowl is amazing”, while another called it a “Wonderful gem of a cafe”.

The cafe must have done enough to impress families as another comment was “Both kids definitely want to visit again.”

5. The Old Clock and Crown – Andover

This is the first place to score points, with a rating of 4.5 out of 377 reviews. Priced from £6 – £18, the pub serves traditional pub grub such as Sunday roasts and burgers.

One reviewer said they traveled 75 miles to meet friends at this pub and would have traveled even further to get to this pub.

6. Peggy May’s Cafe – New Forest

Tucked away in Lyndhurst in the New Forest, this little cafe has had a whopping 561 reviews and scored a 4.5 in total. In addition to serving breakfast and lunch, it sells scones and cakes baked in-house.

The price range is listed as £3 – £9 and one reviewer said they look after children very well.

7. Dhaba59 – Southampton

Serving Indian and Asian dishes, this restaurant caters for vegetarians and vegans, but is also open for both lunch and dinner.

There is no price range listed, but the food sounds delicious. One reviewer said: “The lamb chops just melted in your mouth and the chicken curry was so full of flavor – probably the best curry I’ve tasted and I don’t give that accolade lightly.”

Based in the old village of Titchfield, Daisy B’s Kitchen scored a five and offers fresh sandwiches as well as homemade cakes and scones.

One reviewer said it was “Pprobably the best takeaway I’ve ever had!” and another said the kids lunch box on offer is “Fantastic”.

9. That Little Tea Shop – Romsey

This is a family run cafe that the regulars call Romsey’s best kept secret. The price range is a very reasonable £2 to £5 and it can be found upstairs in a small side street.

It also sounds like a flexible cafe, as one reviewer wrote: “Always a lovely and relaxing place to visit. Food is always freshly cooked to order and staff are always happy to customize breakfast. Best in Romsey.”

10. The Cedar Tree Restaurant – New Forest

The last place on the list has the most ratings with 609 and it still managed to get an overall rating of five out of five. It received 518 ratings of ‘excellent’ and zero ‘terrible’, with the latter being the lowest possible rating.

Based in Milford on Sea in the New Forest, the price range is between £12 and £30 and the food on offer is listed as ‘British’ and ‘European’, with both vegan and vegetarian options. One reviewer noted that the children’s menu is “good too with good portions.”
