Protest against high-voltage power lines in Germany

Triggered by the energy transition in 2011 power to be transported from the windy areas of the North Sea to the South of Germany. As a transmission technique is the so-called high-voltage direct current electric power, abbreviated HVDC provided. The poles should be like a hundred meters high and have a voltage of up to 800 kilovolts (kV). So far, the current transmission in Germany is done by alternating current with a maximum voltage of 380 kV.
