“Europe’s power grid operators group said on Monday it had started a compensation scheme to limit a frequency deviation originating from a power grid row between Serbia and its former province Kosovo, which has again slowed some of Europe’s clocks.

The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSO-E), grouping 43 grid operators from 26 countries, said digital clocks across Europe that use mains frequency to keep time, such as those on microwaves and clock radios, have fallen behind by one minute due to a drop in frequency on continental Europe’s transmission network.

The body urged Serbia and Kosovo to quickly resolve the problem, which earlier this year slowed those clocks by as much as six minutes.” (Reuters)
