Australia’s Energy Crisis: Subsidised Wind & Solar Obsession Sending Power Prices Into Orbit

Add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and rocketing prices are guaranteed. The Danes know it, the Germans know it and South Australians became the butt of international jokes, because of it. The relationship couldn’t be clearer: see above the pertinent little graphic from Dr Michael Crawford, which says it […]

Summer Blackouts Beckon: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Won’t Be Fixed with Batteries

Almost as soon as Joe Public worked out that wind and solar can never work, RE rent seekers started babbling about giant batteries saving the day.

Power Politics: Wind & Solar Obsession Renders Australia’s Labor Party Unelectable

  Bill Shorten took his Labor party to the Federal election in May with a belief that voters uniformly shared his love of rocketing power prices and blackouts.

Worse Than Useless: Chaotically Intermittent Wind Power Never There When It’s Needed Most

Subsidies aside, wind power has no natural commercial value simply because it cannot be delivered as and when power consumers need it. And the mythical notion of storing electricity at grid-scale doesn’t alter that equation, it simply makes wind power even more ridiculously expensive, than it already is. With wind and solar obsessed South Australia […]

Unbearable Burden: Mounting Cost of Subsidised Wind & Solar Crushing Poorest Power Consumers

It’s an unassailable fact: add heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar to your grid and power prices skyrocket. South Australians, Danes and Germans fight for line honours over which of their proletariat suffers the world’s highest power prices. As to the Australian states hooked up to the Eastern Grid, Dr Michael Crawford’s simple […]

Short Circuit: Victoria’s Renewable Energy Calamity Guarantees Blackouts & Rocketing Prices

South Australia’s wind and solar experiment provides the perfect example of how to wreck a power system and an economy with one blow. Not to be outdone, neighbouring Victoria drank the Kool Aid, too – pushing its very own 50% Renewable Energy Target, with a headlong rush into wind and large-scale solar. The lunatics that […]
