End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment

Wind and solar power are always and everywhere the product of massive (and seemingly) endless subsidies. Except, there is an end. There always is. Australia’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target expires in December 2030. The 33,000 GWh annual target was meant to be reached with a surge in wind and large-scale solar capacity by 2020, but […]

Hyper-Hypocrites: Greens Love Wind Power – In Your Backyard – But Never In Theirs

  Fascism comes in all shades, including ‘green’. Marching around and telling other people what to do, makes the green fascist no different than the jackbooted kind, of old. Where the green fascist differs, is in his ability to pontificate from the high moral ground, while engaging in every act he so vocally despises. Which […]

Total Flop: 20 years & $60 Billion in Subsidies, Wind & Solar ‘Deliver’ Risible 7% of Australia’s Power Demand

The line that Australia’s rocketing power prices will soon plummet is just a cruel hoax. The subsidies for large-scale wind and solar under the Federal government’s Large-Scale RET will total more than $60 billion over the life of that scheme: the Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the LRET have already added more than $18 billion […]

Fractions & Fantasy: Grid Scale Battery Storage Completely Insignificant

For almost a century, electricity generation and distribution were treated as a tightly integrated system: it was designed and built as one, and is meant to operate as designed. However, the chaotic delivery of wind and solar have all but trashed the electricity generation and delivery system, as we know it. Germany and South Australia […]

Half-Baked Hoax: Claims For All Wind & Solar Powered Future Are Pure Fantasy

No country has ever powered itself entirely with wind and solar. No country ever will. The image above is not the crazed doodlings of a maniac, it’s the combined output of every wind turbine connected to Australia’s Eastern Grid last month thanks to Aneroid Energy. Note the numerous occasions when output plummets by 2-3,000MW in minutes, […]

Atomic Reaction: Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Debacle Means Australia Needs Nuclear Now

Sensible Australians know chaotically intermittent wind and solar can never work, forcing MPs to demand ever-reliable nuclear power, instead. True it is that coal-fired power provides around 80% of the electricity consumed among those states connected to the Eastern Grid (Queensland, NSW, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia). But, as a result of the obscene subsidies […]

Start Me Up: Australian MPs Push For Nuclear Powered Future

That the world’s third largest uranium exporter has never had a nuclear power plant (and banned them) astonishes all and sundry. Australia also holds the world’s largest uranium reserves. And yet, in 1998 its Federal government passed amendments to the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act and enacted the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Act, […]
