America Set to Cut Subsidies to Wind Power & Prevent Grid Chaos

Donald Trump is not the wind industry’s biggest fan. And now that the damage done to once reliable and affordable power supplies by the intermittent and chaotic delivery of wind power is plain for all to see (look no further than South Australia), the US is out to avoid the inevitable. Starting with an investigation […]

Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster Was Both Predictable & Avoidable

*** In this collection from Quadrant, Jo Nova and The Australian one solid theme emerges: Australia’s energy crisis is entirely self-inflicted and thus it was perfectly avoidable. Among those who saw it coming was Matt Zema – then chief of the Australian Energy Market Operator, who shuffled off this mortal coil way too soon. Before […]

Renewable Industry’s Giant Battery Claims Unplugged

*** With Californian carpet-bagger, Elon Musk swooping on South Australia to scoop up as much as he can of the $550 million its hapless Labor government is about to squander on non-fixes for its self-inflicted wind power disaster, it’s time to put pen to paper to work out just how risible is SA’s plan to […]

Australia’s Energy Crisis: Hazelwood Closure Means Higher Prices & More Blackouts

The Federal Large-Scale RET has just claimed another scalp in the shape of 1,600MW of reliable base-load plant at Hazelwood, Victoria – as well as more than 1,000 well-paid blue-collar jobs and an entire regional community. That loss follows hot on the heels of the breathtakingly stupid decision by South Australia’s hapless Labor government to […]

Turnbull Plays ‘The Man from Snowy River’ in Uncosted Pumped Hydro Plan

Hardly renowned for his political masterstrokes, Malcolm Turnbull has just drenched the opposition with his Snowy 2.0 plan. The Snowy Hydro Scheme is – without doubt – the single greatest renewable energy project ever built in Australia – with a mammoth 3,950 MW of capacity, which is available on-demand (unlike the infantile nonsense that is wind […]

Elephant in the Room: Australia’s Renewable Energy Target the Cause of an Energy Calamity

Australia’s energy crisis is all self-inflicted and largely down to the scaremongering waged by global warming catastrophists. A rolling jumble of false premises and false promises, the frenzied and ill-thought-out reaction to the ‘threat’ posed by CO2 gas has all but destroyed Australia’s once natural advantage of having abundant, cheap and reliable energy. Here’s The […]
