Game Over: Australia’s Energy Minister Slams Chaos Delivered by Subsidised Wind & Solar

The reason Australia’s renewable energy rent seekers are suicidal has a name: Angus Taylor. The Federal Energy Minister hates subsidised wind and solar with a passion.

Blackout Blueprint: German Study Reveals What Really Happens When Power Supplies Fail

Wind and solar ‘powered’ South Australians know what it is to do without power for days on end.

Power Crisis Panic: Australia’s Energy Regulator Warns More Renewables Means More Blackouts

  ‘Panic’ and ‘delusion’ sum up the results of Australia’s self-inflicted renewable energy disaster. Panic at the threat posed by the occasional and chaotic delivery of wind and solar power to the grid; a threat already realised in Australia’s wind power capital, South Australia, which suffers the highest power prices in the world and is […]

Avoiding Disaster: Australia’s Renewable Energy Debacle Signals Warning to Energy Rich Americans

  Laconic crocodile hunters aside, Australia doesn’t often register in the US of A, but its self-inflicted renewable energy fiasco has clearly placed it on the American radar. News of wind ‘powered’ South Australia’s statewide blackout in September 2016 rendered it an international laughing stock. It also set it up as an example of what […]
