Grid-Scale Power Storage Myth Busted: Giant Batteries Can’t Save Unreliable Wind & Solar

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. Those profiting from hopelessly intermittent wind and solar still claim that mega-batteries are the solution to their obvious lack of reliability. Others point to pumped hydro and even ridiculously claim that “excess” wind […]

Dead Calm Weather Exposes The Great ‘Green’ Energy Lie Almost Every Single Day

If you believe that the ‘cheque’s in the mail’, ‘the wind is always blowing somewhere’ and ‘the sun never sets’, you’ll believe anything. STT is dedicated to exposing the lie that we are well on our way to an inevitable transition to an all-wind and sun-powered future. What’s depicted above – courtesy of Aneroid Energy – […]

Renewables Road to Nowhere: Subsidised Wind & Solar Just Don’t Work & Never Will

In the absence of mandates directing grid managers to take chaotic wind or solar power ahead of conventional power and/or massive subsidies directed to retailers encouraging them to take it and/or heavy fines imposed on them if they refuse to, there is simply no commercial market for power which can only be generated occasionally, in […]

Why Big Batteries Can’t Cure Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

Politicos and the MSM are wedded to the myth that mega-batteries are all we need to overcome the chaotic delivery of wind and solar. The addition of which, we are told, is both imminent and cost-free. No country on earth has been able to crack the cost-effective grid-scale storage electricity. The laws of physics are […]

Judge Hits Wind Farm & Big Tesla Battery Owners With $4m Fines For Delivery Failures

Now and again the law catches up with the shysters that run wind farms and so-called big batteries. Failing to deliver on a promise ordinarily results in an order for damages to be paid to the unwitting victim. In addition, in a regulated electricity market, the regulator will sometimes join in and seek its pound […]

Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Calamity All Down To Wind & Solar Chaos

  Australia’s unfolding power pricing and supply calamity reveals just how critical our coal-fired power plants are if we want power as and when we need it. Sure, there’s a choice between virtue signalling about your love of wind and solar and visceral hatred of “dirty” coal-fired power. But allow the deluded wind and sun […]

Dumb & Dumber: Continued Wind & Solar Obsession Defies All Logic & Reason

The renewable energy pit deepens, but there’s no indication the dolts in charge will ever stop digging. The, by now obvious, consequences of attempting to rely on sunshine and breezes include another annual power price increase of over 20% this month and routine power rationing by postcode. In response, there’s a growing groundswell of hostility […]

‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar Transition’s Inevitable Collision Course With Reality

The deluded few still promoting the total transition to wind and solar as ‘inevitable’ are being pounded by reality, on a daily basis. Dead calm weather is a thing; sunset is a thing. Both phenomena are inevitable, ergo, there is no way wind and solar can ever amount to meaningful power sources. Proponents have been […]

Storage Stories: Why Giant Batteries Can’t Solve Wind & Solar Power’s Natural Intermittency

It only takes a moment’s reckoning to appreciate that the grid-scale storage electricity generated by wind or solar is a perfect nonsense. It hasn’t occurred anywhere in the world; nor will it. The combined capacity of all of the batteries on Earth would store a trivial 10 minute’s worth of the World’s electricity needs. The […]

Power Price Shock: Australia’s Renewables Disaster Proves Wind & Solar Ain’t Cheap

In a weather-dependent energy world, those lucky enough to get power when they need it are being forced to pay a king’s ransom for it. Having championed the use of tens of $billions in subsidies to destroy the coal-fired generators that gave Australia its reliable and affordable power supply, Australia’s new Federal Labor government is […]
