Mandatory photovoltaic panels, and 100% energy independent houses. The decision for the future of Europe

The European Commission is pushing to decrease the dependence of Member States on fossil fuels, not only for mobility, but also and and for the energy used above all by buildings. The new plan launched, RePowerEU, which also contains interesting news regarding solar energy, goes in this direction.

As stated in the full text published, with the intention of reducing the use of Russian gas, new regulations will come regarding solar panels (photovoltaic and thermal) on the roofs of buildings of all kinds. In detail, the installation of solar energy systems will be mandatory in the following cases:

all new public or commercial buildings, with a usable area of ​​more than 250 m2, by 2026
all existing public or commercial buildings, with a usable area of ​​more than 250 m2, by 2027
all new residential buildings, enters 2029
RePower EU

It is also mentioned the push and the facilitation, for those who live in multi-apartment complexes, towards self-consumption from collective systems.

All these regulations point straight towards the one probably more ambitious, and more difficult to implement, namely that starting from 2030 all new buildings, including residential ones, produce a quantity of energy, to be returned 100% independent. Production, therefore, from solar plants must be on a par with consumption.

Ellon Musk lost 10 billion in one day after sexual assault allegations

After the heavy sexual assault allegations of Tesla Boss Elon Musk against a SpaceX worker, her fortune lost $ 10 billion in just 24 hours, according to Bloomberg. Last Thursday, the magnate’s estimated assets were around $ 212 billion, and fell to $ 201 billion in the evening following the news release.

Elon Musk: 10 billion lost in 24 hours with Tesla falling by -6.4%
The article condemning billionaire Musk was released by Business Insider. According to a friend of the alleged victim, Musk asked for a full massage inside his leaning cabin for a VoloX, where he later showed the erect penis. The woman refused the advances of the Tesla and SpaceX boss, and then filed a complaint with SpaceX’s human resources in 2018 (two years after the transfer). To get absolute silence on the affair, Musk would have given the woman $ 250,000.


Musk has firmly negative any statements on the incident, yet after the notice surfaced, Tesla’s share price plunged 6.4%.

According to Bloomberg data, Musk lost over $ 69 billion of his assets in the first 5 months of the year. This is partly due to Tesla’s share price being lowered in the midst of a global stock market sale, as investors were concerned about the health of the global economy.

30th May (’22): Statehood Day [Croatia]

Statehood Day (Croatian: Dan državnosti, pronounced [dan dr̩ʒaʋnosti]) is a public holiday and national day that occurs every year on 30 May in Croatia to celebrate the constitution of the first modern multi-party Croatian Parliament in 1990. As a national day and public holiday, it is a non-working day for all government employees and majority of labour force based in Croatia.

While there are no strict or established forms of celebration associated with the holiday, it is usually celebrated outdoors. The day is usually marked by family reunions, picnics, barbecues and by parades on quinquennial or decennial anniversaries.

On 30 May 1990, the first modern multi-party Croatian Parliament convened, following the 1990 Croatian parliamentary election. This date was from 1990 to 2002 marked as the Statehood Day. The Government of Ivica Račan moved the Statehood Day to 25 June in 2002, and 30 May was marked as a memorial day (working) under the name Day of the Croatian Parliament. On 25 June, after the independence referendum held on 19 May 1991, Croatia proclaimed its independence, but due to the negotiation of the Brioni Agreement, a three-month moratorium was placed on the implementation of the decision and the Parliament cut all remaining ties with Yugoslavia on 8 October 1991. 8 October was a holiday, Independence Day from 2002 to 2019, when it was declared a memorial day (working).

Slovenia declared independence from Yugoslavia at the same time, and its Statehood Day coincided with the Croatian Statehood Day, on 25 June.[citation needed]

On 14 November 2019, the Croatian Parliament adopted a new law on holidays, and moved Statehood Day back to 30 May. Previous date, 25 June, became a working memorial day under the name Independence Day.[citation needed]

30th May (’22): Memorial Day [USA]

Memorial Day (originally known as Decoration Day) is a federal holiday in the United States for mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formerly observed on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day to honor and mourn those who died while serving in the U.S. military. Many volunteers place an American flag on graves of military personnel in national cemeteries. Memorial Day is also considered the unofficial beginning of summer in the United States.

Many cities and people have claimed to have first celebrated the event. By 1890, every Northern state had adopted it as a holiday. The World Wars turned it into a generalized day of remembrance instead of just for the Civil War. In 1971, Congress standardized the holiday as “Memorial Day” and changed its observance to the last Monday in May.

Two other days celebrate those who have served or are serving in the U.S. military: Armed Forces Day (which is earlier in May), an unofficial U.S. holiday for honoring those currently serving in the armed forces, and Veterans Day (on November 11), which honors those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
