Artificial intelligence commentary on cited information:

The German Auto Industry Association (VDA) criticizes the European Commission's new proposal for computing CO₂ footprints of electric vehicle batteries, which would no longer count the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates towards the CO₂ calculation. The new rules focus on local energy data, which the VDA claims will disadvantage German production sites due to Germany's less favorable energy mix compared to countries like France. The VDA proposes using regional energy mixes within the EU instead of the national averages.

FC Bayern Basketball edged out MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg with a score of 76:69, entering the semifinals of the German championship. The game was tense, marked by a brief interruption due to a clock stop and numerous missed free throws by Bayern. Notable performances came from Bayen's Carsen Edwards, who contributed crucial points for the win. Bayern will face Würzburg in the semifinals, who advanced by defeating Ratiopharm Ulm.

The SPD deleted an Instagram post intended to criticize racist chants at a party on the island of Sylt, after receiving backlash for its own misunderstood message, where they seemed to affirm a nationalist slogan under a post with Germany’s national colors.
