Germany’s Renewable Energy Disaster – Part 1: Wind & Solar Deemed ‘Technological Failures’

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and idyllic rural communities are now industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]

RE Regrets: Germany Laments its ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

When it comes to wind and solar, no country went harder or faster than Germany. As they say though, act in haste, repent at your leisure. A grid on the brink of collapse and rocketing power prices is all that Germans have to show for their obsession about powering themselves with daily sunshine and occasional […]

Inevitable Transition: End to Subsidies Spells Armageddon for Ageing Wind Turbines in Europe

With wind power subsidies drying up across Europe, the prospects for RE rent seekers look bleaker than ever. It seems like only yesterday, that we were told that wind power was cheaper than coal, sustainable and would power us into the next millennium. Indeed, the transition was meant to be ‘inevitable’. Meanwhile, back on Earth, […]

Germans Rue Wave of ‘Green’ Destruction: Wind Turbines Driving Critters From Natural Habitats

  The wind industry is hypocrisy defined: merrily wrecking the environment under the auspices of ‘saving’ it. Slaughtering millions of birds and bats (and lying about it) is all in a day’s work. In Germany, its eco-zealots are having a harder time than usual, in their dogged efforts to cover up the inevitable environmental destruction […]

Regrets: Fritz Vahrenholt – German RE Pioneer Demands End to Chaotic Wind Power Push

  If the tech savvy Germans can’t make wind and solar power work, no one can. The Germans love cobbling together endless, guttural syllables to create nouns longer than the Autobahn. ‘Energiewende’ roughly translates as ‘energy transition’, which Germans have taken to mean a new path with energy. Germans were told that instead of coal […]

Germany’s Wind & Solar Power FAIL: Top Economist Declares Energiewende “Delusional”

Wherever in the world governments have shackled their energy policies to nature’s ‘wonder fuels’, the sun and wind, it doesn’t take long for their constituents to enter a state of mortified panic as they recognise that their economic futures have been sacrificed to an obsessive cult-like ideology. Because so much money was in the offing […]
