With Wind & Solar’s Days Over, Who Cleans Up Europe’s Renewable Energy Mess?

Across Europe, investment in new wind and solar is in freefall. So far this year, the Germans installed a measly 35 of these things onshore. As their massive subsidies get cut and furious rural residents revolt, the wind and solar industries are facing their inevitable Armageddon. The inevitable surge in power prices and grid chaos […]

End Game: Subsidy Wind Down Heralds Collapse in Wind & Solar Investment

Wind and solar power are always and everywhere the product of massive (and seemingly) endless subsidies. Except, there is an end. There always is. Australia’s Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target expires in December 2030. The 33,000 GWh annual target was meant to be reached with a surge in wind and large-scale solar capacity by 2020, but […]

Wind Power’s Perfect Standstill: Total Collapse in New Construction Leaves German Wind Industry Suicidal

Germany was once a world beater when it came to erecting heavily subsidised wind turbines. Not anymore. So far this year, the German wind industry has managed to construct a mere 60 new onshore wind turbines across the entire country. Needless to say, Germany’s RE rent-seekers are crying ‘catastrophe’ and being advised to contact their […]

Renewables ‘Transition’ Terminated: With Their Subsidies Slashed, the Honeymoon for Wind & Solar is Over

  Like a bride jilted at the altar, the wind and solar ‘industries’ are moaning about what could have been. Plenty of RE zealots managed to convince themselves that these so-called ‘industries’ were actually sustainable; that the subsidies that created them would ultimately prove unnecessary, or if not, taxpayers and power consumers would merrily pay […]

Game Over: Europe’s Great Renewables Rush Faces Armageddon

Death and taxes are certainties, so is the fact that wind and solar investment disappears just as soon the subsidies are cut. Without massive (and seemingly endless) subsidies we wouldn’t be having this conversation: there would have been no such thing as wind and solar power, on any scale, or at all. Twelve countries in […]
