All Black Future: Intermittent Renewables Chaos Means Longer Blackouts, Much More Often

Pinning your power hopes on the weather requires more than just a leap of faith, it requires candles, torches and a sturdy backup generator. The hapless denizens of South Australia (Australia’s wind and solar capital) are now world-renowned for their (enforced) self-reliance and stoicism. In wind and solar obsessed Australia, couple a spike in demand […]

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.

A couple of warm days last week – coupled with dramatic collapses in wind and solar output […]

Dark Ages Deliverance: Australia’s Energy Minister Contracts Coal-Fired Power to Avoid More Mass Blackouts

Intermittent wind and solar guarantee power supply chaos and are a recipe for mass load shedding and blackouts: ask South Australians.

Wind & Solar Rewind: Victorian Labor Promises to Repeat South Australia’s Renewable Energy Disaster

Ignoring neighbouring South Australia’s wind & solar debacle, Victoria’s delusional Labor Premier Daniel Andrews is determined to repeat it. Despite some recent 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 Target. SA’s 50% RET […]

The Wind God’s New Clothes: Why Weather Dependent Power Generation Can Never Work

  The wind’s fickleness is no mystery to kite flyers and sailors, yet wind power still gets pumped as if it’s cutting edge technology. Those few places attempting to run on nature’s wonder fuels have become economic debacles. One of those, RE ‘superpower’, South Australia has suffered routine load shedding for years, and rocketing power […]
