Pointless: Europe’s Wind & Solar Generators Rarely Deliver Power When It’s Actually Needed

Wind and solar are an all or nothing kind of prospect; when the Sun’s at its zenith and the wind’s blowing just right, wind and solar generators actually start to look like ‘industries’. But, a spell of calm weather and/or sunset soon buries that notion. Power delivered when it’s not needed is worthless, as are […]

Cost Cover-up: German Government Hiding Massive Cost of Wind & Solar Subsidies

German power consumers now suffer Europe’s highest power prices, thanks to massive subsidies to unreliable wind and solar. With hundreds of thousands of households no longer able to afford power, and energy hungry, high-tech businesses shifting their operations to places like Singapore – where power is a tiny fraction of the cost – Germany’s renewables […]

Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos: Germany’s Energy ‘Transition’ an Unmitigated Disaster

If the object of its renewable energy ‘transition’ was World’s highest power prices, it’s mission accomplished for Germany’s ‘Energiewende’. More than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels have made Germany the wind and solar cult’s favourite pinup girl. But there is not so much enthusiasm for Germany’s ‘green’ energy turn amongst businesses forced […]

Black Forest’s Bleak Future: German Wilderness Wiped Out to Make Way For 1,000 Wind Turbines

Apparently, turning wilderness into smouldering ash is all for the greater good, provided it’s to make way for 260m high/300 tonne industrial juggernauts, aka wind turbines. Germany has speared over 30,000 of these things across its countryside. As land for doing so has become increasingly scarce, the strategy has been to clear-fell forests that were […]

Big Backpedal: A Week After Shutting its Coal-Fired Plants Germany Forced to Reopen Them

  Germany’s renewable energy ‘transition’ has turned into high farce: a week after it forced the shutdown of 11 coal-fired power plants, it was forced to reopen them to avoid mass blackouts. German power prices – already the highest in Europe (if not the world) – are running out of control. The recent legislated ban […]

Game Over: German Wind Industry In Free Fall As Renewable Energy ‘Transition’ Hits the Wall

Germany’s wind industry is now demolishing wind turbines faster than it can build them. During 2020, the Germans managed to add a paltry 200 new wind turbines to its fleet of over 30,000. Meanwhile, hundreds have already been demolished and – with hundreds more reaching the end of their economic life – the only growth […]

Germany’s Renewables ‘Transition’ Means World’s Highest Power Prices & Power Rationing

Germany’s wind and solar transition aka the “Energiewende” is a monstrous debacle: power prices have rocketed out-of-control and wintertime power rationing is the new normal, thanks to the combination of solar panels plastered in ice, frozen wind turbines and dead calm frigid weather. Wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. […]

Priceless: Nuclear Powered French Pay Half What Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Germans Pay for Power

If wind and solar power are so cheap, then why is it that Germany now suffers Europe’s highest power prices? And equally wind power obsessed, Denmark is right behind it? On the one hand, the wind and solar cult point to Germany as the shining example of our inevitable transition to an all wind and […]

Dark Future: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means Learning to Live Without Power When You Need It

If you thought the ‘transition’ to wind and solar meant having power on demand, think again. Like the fine print on an insurance contract, the ‘deal’ being offered by renewable energy rent seekers comes with a nasty catch. When the chips are down, you simply won’t be covered. While wind and solar acolytes are keen […]

Alarm Call: Texan/Californian/South Australian Blackouts Herald End For Unreliable Wind & Solar

  By no stretch of the imagination can entirely weather/sunshine-dependent power sources be described as “meaningful” or “serious”. The tale about the naked Emperor beguiled by his acolytes into believing his ‘attire’ was perfectly suited to every occasion, springs to mind. The gag was, of course, that the Emperor never had any clothes. Likewise, chaotically […]
