Europe’s Renewables Reckoning: Power Rationing & Punishing Power Prices Killing Thousands

For the poorest and most vulnerable, staying warm in winter is a daily battle for survival. Thanks to Europe’s (literally suicidal) wind and solar ‘transition’, power prices have spiralled out of control and in Germany power rationing is now routine, likewise in Britain. The Germans, of course, led the charge when it came to throwing … Continue reading Europe’s Renewables Reckoning: Power Rationing & Punishing Power Prices Killing Thousands

Don’t Believe The Hype: Wind Power Remains Fastest Way to Waste Taxpayers’ Money

Hyperbole is the wind and solar industry’s preferred dialect. Long on promises and short on delivery, those that pretend we’ll all soon be running on nothing but sunshine and breezes have no interest in dealing with troublesome facts, such as sunset and/or calm weather. Grand, sweeping visions might work to a point, but, eventually, reality … Continue reading Don’t Believe The Hype: Wind Power Remains Fastest Way to Waste Taxpayers’ Money

Serious Energy: Britain Backs Ever-Reliable Nuclear Over Never-Reliable Wind Power

Politicians routinely crabwalk away from policy disasters. So it is in Britain where ever-reliable nuclear power has just been declared ‘green’ and essential to Britain’s energy future. Oversold and overhyped, in Europe, wind power now barely rates a mention amongst anyone serious about serious energy policy. Like that awkward, always-drunk uncle that everyone wants to … Continue reading Serious Energy: Britain Backs Ever-Reliable Nuclear Over Never-Reliable Wind Power

Never Enough: Wind Industry Squanders Billions & Demands Even More Subsidies From Taxpayers

After 30 years and plenty of talk about being ‘competitive’ with coal, gas and nuclear, wind and solar are still being treated like untamable toddlers. The subsidies they begged for in the beginning were meant to help so-called ‘infant’ industries get on their feet. But, even now, the mere mention of reducing subsidies turns them … Continue reading Never Enough: Wind Industry Squanders Billions & Demands Even More Subsidies From Taxpayers

Wind & Solar: Always & Everywhere Dependent On Massive & Endless Subsidies

Never stand between rent seekers and a fat pile of taxpayers’ money. The wind and solar industries were built on lies and myth, but they can only survive when there's a steady stream of massive and endless subsidies. Cut the subsidies and rent seekers disappear in a heartbeat. BP was once the head of the … Continue reading Wind & Solar: Always & Everywhere Dependent On Massive & Endless Subsidies

SMR Gold Rush: Smart Money Backing Small Modular Nuclear Reactors

Europe’s energy crisis is all down to its delusional reliance upon intermittent wind and solar, which is why the smart money is backing nuclear power, at any scale, including Small Modular Reactors. The list of operators investing in SMR technology is growing at such a rate that could be described as an investor gold rush. … Continue reading SMR Gold Rush: Smart Money Backing Small Modular Nuclear Reactors

Total Frauds: Routine Collapses Mean Wind & Solar Deliver Net Zero Power On Daily Basis

Calm weather and sunset will do it every time, smashing wind and solar output and claims that we’re already headed for an all wind and sun powered future. Believe the narrative run by the MSM on behalf of the wind and solar rent seekers and their political enablers, you’d think we’ve already reached our ‘green’ … Continue reading Total Frauds: Routine Collapses Mean Wind & Solar Deliver Net Zero Power On Daily Basis

Renewables Transition: ‘Demand Management’ Means Accepting Bribes to Suffer Blackouts

When the bulk of your power needs are supposed to come from sunshine and breezes, get ready for a lot of disappointment. Total collapses in wind and solar output routinely lead to large-scale, controlled blackouts - euphemistically known as ‘demand management’. Where smart meters are in play, the grid manager helpfully does it for you; … Continue reading Renewables Transition: ‘Demand Management’ Means Accepting Bribes to Suffer Blackouts

RE-Treat: Europe’s Repeated Wind & Solar Failures Force Renewable Energy Reversal

Germany and Britain are so heavily dependent on wind and solar, that gloomy, windless weather now presents an existential threat. The Germans have even coined a word for it: ‘dunkelflaute’. If mass blackouts during freezing winter weather weren’t a threat to millions of lives, it would almost be comical. What’s occurred is the perfect example … Continue reading RE-Treat: Europe’s Repeated Wind & Solar Failures Force Renewable Energy Reversal

Planned Failure: Wind Power Obsession Leaves Britain’s Power Supply On Brink Of Collapse

You know policymakers have lost the plot when they start waxing lyrical about battery storage and ‘green’ hydrogen; neither of which exist at any scale; neither of which are even vaguely economic, even with massive taxpayer-funded subsidies to prop them up. English dictionary doyen, Samuel Johnson reckoned that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, … Continue reading Planned Failure: Wind Power Obsession Leaves Britain’s Power Supply On Brink Of Collapse
