Building Baseload: Keeping Australia’s Lights On Means More Coal-Fired Power – Now!

Preventing power price hikes and keeping the lights on by adding more intermittent wind and solar is like putting out fire with gasoline. These days, only the most delusional RE zealot still claims that spiralling power prices aren’t caused by chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar. The mantra has shifted to one which […]

Loser Pays: Making Wind & Solar Pay the Staggering Cost of their Chaotic Intermittency

All care and no responsibility, the wind and solar ‘industries’ have been allowed to destroy the grid and the power market without consequence. At least on their part; at least for now.

Crunch Time: Australia’s Renewable Energy Rent-Seekers Suicidal After Coalition Victory

  The ‘shock’ Federal election result has left RE energy rent seekers reeling. What was meant to be a Green/Labor landslide – with the promise that subsidies to wind and solar would double and be extended until kingdom come – returned not only the Liberal/National Coalition to power, but left the Energy Minister, Angus Taylor […]

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 […]
