Reliable Power Rewind: Australia Rebuilds Baseload With New High Efficiency Low Emission Coal Plants

Like pushing on string, adding wind and solar adds nothing to reliable power generation capacity: never there when you need it, and often there when you don’t, wind and solar are just a perpetual irritant to grid managers – the people attempting to keep the lights on and air conditioners humming this summer. On 25 […]

Antidote to Chaos: High Efficiency Low Emissions Coal-Fired Power Plants Key To Restoring Reliable & Affordable Power

  Electricity used to be taken for granted in Australia, like running water. Not anymore. Thanks to chaotically delivered wind and solar, having power during hot weather is now treated more like winning the lottery. Joni Mitchell sang about not knowing what you’ve got till it’s gone in her ditty, Big Yellow Taxi. Likewise, Victorians […]

Blackout Fallout: Wind Power Debacle Leaves Thousands of Powerless Victorians Furious

Everyone ‘loves’ the idea of wind and solar power, until they’re sweltering in the dark. 200,000 Victorian homes and businesses left powerless – after a sudden and dramatic wind power output collapse on 25 January – have got a taste of what wind ‘powered’ South Australians have been putting up with for years. And they […]

New Dark Age: Renewable Energy Debacle Crippling Business, Punishing Households

The stated aim of the Green-left is the destruction of Australia’s reliable and affordable electricity supply. It’s dressed up as a burning hatred of evil fossil fuels, but in reality, it’s just naked contempt for their fellow Australians. A couple of warm days last week – coupled with dramatic collapses in wind and solar output […]

Reality Check: Heatwave Blackout Gives Victorians Taste of the ‘Transition’ to Wind & Solar

The dreamers who think they’ll soon be running entirely on sunshine and breezes, have just been smacked with reality, in Victoria, at least. There’s something poetic about watching infants being forced to grow up. And, so it is, with once loyal RE zealots, being forced to rethink their love affair, after their taste of what […]

Wind Power Chaos: There When You Don’t Need It – Never There When You Do

  It’s no news to sailors, that the wind is never there when you need it and often there when you don’t. Coal-fired steamships took the guesswork out of Maritime navigation, ensuring passengers and cargo arrived safely, promptly and on schedule. Bucking the trend set by the Industrial Revolution, Australia’s wind power capital, South Australia […]

Sky’s The Limit: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ South Australians Hit With (Another) 22% Price Hike

Attempting to rely on intermittent wind and solar is guaranteed to send power prices into orbit. Just ask a South Australian. Despite some desperate wind industry 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 […]
