Marriage Meltdown: How A Love Affair With Intermittent Wind & Solar Ended In Tears

Australia’s grab bag of renewable energy policies are like a marriage made in hell. Destroying its once reliable grid and sending power prices through the roof, Federal and State Renewable Energy Targets are designed to destroy conventional generators. And, so far, they’ve done an admirable job. Australia now faces a summer of widespread blackouts and […]

Wind & Solar Rewind: Victorian Labor Promises to Repeat South Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Ignoring neighbouring South Australia’s wind & solar debacle, Victoria’s delusional Labor Premier Daniel Andrews is determined to repeat it. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s 50% RET […]

RE Contagion: Labor Promises to Take South Australia’s Energy Debacle Nationwide with 50% RET

That adding intermittent wind and solar sends power prices into orbit is a night follows day, kind of thing. Despite some recent propaganda efforts suggesting that South Australians are currently enjoying 1970s power prices, Australia’s renewable energy capital still pays the world’s highest power prices – thanks to its ludicrous 50% Renewable Energy Target. SA’s […]

Renewable Energy Zealots Furious: Australia’s New PM Determined to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies and Exit Paris Climate ‘Deal’

Ever rocketing power prices were what scuttled Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies. The National Energy Guarantee was an effort to expand (exponentially) and extend (indefinitely) Australia’s already crippling Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target. A mixture of hubris and overreach by those championing the NEG – which included the ex-PM (we seem to recall his name was […]

South Australia’s 50% Renewable Energy Fail: World’s Highest Power Prices Caused by Subsidised Wind & Solar

South Australians suffer the world’s highest power prices because they rely on heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind & solar. It’s a relationship for which the economic backwater has become world renowned. Along with its notoriety as a (notionally) first world economy with a third world power supply. If you’re looking to attack the infantile […]

Fixing Australia’s Power Pricing & Supply Crisis Means Cutting Subsidies to Wind & Solar, Right Now

The last thing Australia needs is another MW of intermittent power generation, which means slashing subsidies to wind and solar, right now. Thankfully, the new Energy Minister, Angus Taylor is determined to do just that. Taylor’s shortest route home is to fix the power market dispatch rules, which give preference to intermittent wind and solar. […]

End of Days: Rocketing Power Prices Spells Armageddon for Subsidised Wind & Solar

Malcolm Turnbull’s downfall resulted from stratospheric power prices, sent into orbit by unreliable and intermittent wind and solar. His fate was sealed when he started spinning the line that his National Energy Guarantee (which would have effectively doubled wind and solar capacity) would result in power being delivered at 1970s prices. The same line is […]
