Crunch Time: Can Australia Escape its Self-Inflicted Renewable Energy Calamity Before It’s Too Late?

  Everything about Australia’s renewable energy calamity was perfectly predictable and perfectly avoidable. Throwing $60,000,000,000 in subsidies at chaotically intermittent wind and solar was a pretty good start. Placing lunatics in charge of the entire operation sealed the deal. Australia’s Eastern Grid (covering QLD, NSW, VIC, TAS, ACT & SA) is on the brink of […]

National Suicide: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Driven by Wind & Solar Obsession

Australia’s energy policy reads like a National suicide note: power prices went from the lowest in the world to the highest, in little over a decade. Plotting the path to destruction is pretty easy: start by throwing $60 billion in subsidies at wind and large-scale solar, demonise cheap and reliable coal-fired power and put lunatics […]

How Subsidised Wind & Solar Destroyed Australia’s Economic Competitiveness

Chaotically intermittent and heavily subsidised wind and solar have sent power prices soaring in Australia. Barely a generation ago, Australians enjoyed the lowest power prices in the world, now they suffer the highest. And it took a little over a decade – see above. In a helpful exposition of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply […]

Australia’s Monumental Wind & Solar Fail: Soaring Power Prices Just the Beginning

Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity is down to an obsession with heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar. With a Shorten led Labor/Green Alliance odds-on to win Federal Government this May, the disaster that is South Australia threatens to break the border and infect every other state in the Commonwealth: Shorten is pushing […]

Want Rocketing Power Prices? Just Add Intermittent Wind & Solar – South Australia Did

There’s something uncanny about the relationship between rocketing power prices and renewable energy: ask a German, Dane or South Australian. 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. The subsidies […]

Only Solution to Australia’s Power Crisis: Cutting Subsidies to Intermittent Wind & Solar – Right Now

Fixing Australia’s power pricing and supply calamity means slashing subsidies to wind and solar: not in 2020, not in 2030, but right now. For the wayward and confused, it’s always important to remember that a straight line is the shortest, and often the safest, route home. Australia’s self-inflicted energy crisis started out with massive subsidies […]

Renewable Energy Debacle Deepens: Chaotic & Costly Power Destroying Australian Industry

  Australian is set to cross the Rubicon: following the path to Nirvana promised by renewable energy zealots, means inevitable economic and social oblivion. As the country continues pouring billions of dollars into the unreliables – wind and solar – power prices will continue to rocket out of control. And, even if an industrial or […]
