Frozen: Germany’s Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Turns Into Power Pricing & Supply Disaster

Because RE zealots crowed about Germany’s ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar from the outset, it’s no surprise that its disastrous conclusion is attracting attention, much like a freeway pileup. Germany’s so-called Energiewende (energy transition) has turned into a power pricing and supply calamity. Which was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Jonathan […]

Time to Get Serious: Fretting About CO2? Then Nuclear Power’s The Only Solution

If you’ve tuned in to someone banging on about ‘carbon pollution’ (aka carbon dioxide gas) and they aren’t banging on about nuclear power, it’s time to tune out. STT promotes nuclear power because it works. Reliable, safe and affordable it’s the only stand-alone power generation system that does not generate carbon dioxide gas during the […]

Down Tools: Australia’s Most Powerful Workers Union Rejects Unreliable Wind & Solar

Labor – aka the ‘Workers Party’ – remains determined to destroy whole industries and thousands of jobs with a 50% RET and a giant ‘carbon’ tax. Business and job destroying policies that helped it comfortably lose the ‘unloseable’ Federal election in May, and which its deluded front bench simply can’t bear to let go. Australian […]

Terminal Diagnosis: Wind & Solar Chaos Places Australia’s Power Grid On Life Support

Australia’s self-inflicted wind and solar calamity has just got serious; very serious. Managing electricity grids is a finely balanced affair, requiring the ability to control what goes in and what goes out on a second-by-second basis. The generation and distribution of electricity was relatively simple when synchronous, dispatchable conventional generation sources (in Australia, coal, gas […]

Money For Nothing: Scotland’s Wind Farms Earn More Revenue When They’re Turned Off!!

The fact that Scotland’s wind farms have pocketed £650m for not generating power has attracted more than just a little attention. STT has run several stories over the last few months about wind power outfits being paid very handsomely to NOT generate electricity. Perhaps it’s the sense of outrage that comes with knowing a group […]

If Wind & Solar Are So Cheap, Why Are Germans Paying World’s Highest Power Prices?

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices And, with a looming capacity crunch, Germans will be lucky to have power at all, at any […]

Ripped Off: How Wind & Solar Industries Rigged Power Markets & Power Consumers Pay

The wind and solar ‘industries’ produce plenty of power when no one needs it and often fail to produce it when everybody does. The fact that they can’t deliver as and when power consumers demand electricity, means that power consumers pay – whether in the form of massive subsidies, Feed-in-tariffs, soft loans and government guaranteed […]
