Pure Unbridled Chaos: Why Unreliable and Intermittent Wind & Solar Destabilise Power Grids

The more intermittent wind and solar get added to the grid, the greater the risk that their chaotic delivery of power will wreck it. By which we mean the delivery of an entire ‘system black’ – of the kind that Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia became world-renowned for. Depicted above – courtesy of Aneroid […]

Power Generation & Distribution For Dummies (or Why Intermittent Wind & Solar Will Never Work)

If you’re looking to wreck a grid and send power prices into orbit, then pin your power hopes to wind and solar power delivered at mother nature’s whims. South Australia did; it suffers the world’s highest retail power prices and became the butt of international jokes for a series of weather-related mass blackouts. Looking for an example? Take a […]

Wind & Solar Power Chaos: Australia’s Renewable Energy Capital Spending Millions to Prevent Total Grid Collapse

Like Germany, South Australia was held up as the exemplar of what a transition to wind and sun powered future would look like. Like Germany, that so-called ‘transition’ has turned into a costly debacle. Already suffering the world’s highest retail power prices (right up there with those suffered in Germany), South Australians are now paying […]

Captain Chaos: Intermittent Wind & Solar Destroying Australia’s Eastern Power Grid

In another “don’t say we told you so” moment, the lunatics that have taken charge of the Australian Energy Market Commission have been forced to concede that the so-called ‘transition’ to an all wind […]
