Solar pannels along the highways?

The coalition agreement provides that vacant areas along the motorways and railway tracks could be used to install solar pannels. DP MPs Gusty Graas and Max Hahn have asked what concrete projects there are so far.

« Comme le prévoit l’accord de coalition actuel, un cadastre solaire a été établi afin d’étudier et de faciliter la réalisation de grandes installations photovoltaïques, notamment et parmi d’autres, le long des autoroutes et des lignes de chemins de fer.

Dans leur réponse à la question parlementaire n°4324, Messieurs les Ministres évoquent des initiatives dans ce domaine, mais qui n’ont pas encore été réalisées jusqu’à présent.

Dans ce contexte nous aimerions poser les questions suivantes à Monsieur le Ministre de l’Énergie et à Monsieur le Ministre de la Mobilité et des Travaux publics :

  • Quel est le potentiel énergétique le long des autoroutes et lignes de chemins de fer en ce qui concerne la construction d’installations photovoltaïques ?
  • Messieurs les Ministres, peuvent-ils fournir des précisions quant aux initiatives dans ce domaine susmentionnées ? Dans quel stade d’élaboration se trouve chacune de ces initiatives ? À quel endroit se localiseraient les différents projets ? Quelle serait la production énergétique des différentes installations ? »

Has the presence of the stink bug already been confirmed in Luxembourg?

The stink bug is an invasive insect native to Asia that causes many headaches for winegrowers, fruit and vegetable producers. These bugs can indeed cause very serious damage in vines, orchards or vegetable gardens. DP MPs André Bauler and Gusty Graas asked the ministers concerned whether these insects had already spread in Luxembourg and whether damage had already been detected in crops.


What about the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination?

Some countries restrict the validity of the Covid-19 vaccination for entry into their country. For people who were vaccinated at the beginning of the year, the validity of the vaccination will therefore expire soon. The DP MPs Claude Lamberty and Carole Hartmann asked the responsible ministers whether Luxembourg also plans to introduce such a validity limit and what can be done at EU level.


A “repair bonus” to boost the circular economy?

With a bonus, the Ministry of the Environment in Thuringia wants to encourage people to have their electrical appliances repaired instead of throwing them away. DP MP Max Hahn therefore asked if this would not be a way to strengthen the circular economy also here in Luxembourg.
