The Big ‘Green’ Lie: Why We’ll Never, Ever Be 100% Powered By Wind & Solar Power

The wind and solar acolyte in their more delusional moments readily proclaims that an all-wind and sun-powered future is upon us.  Never mind sunset; never mind dead calm weather; and never mind the fact that the idea that giant lithium-ion batteries economically storing wind and solar power at grid-scale is pure hokum – for the […]

No Mystery: Calm Weather & Sunset Root Cause of Power Pricing & Supply Calamity

The relationship between weather-dependent wind/sunshine dependent solar and rocketing power prices is crystal clear, so too the post ‘transition’ phenomenon of power rationing caused by sunset and/or calm weather. Australia isn’t alone in experiencing a power pricing and supply calamity, all its very own making; Germans, Danes and Californians have enjoyed much the same and […]

The Hard Data: Why Subsidised Wind & Solar Inevitably Drive Power Prices Into Orbit

The relationship between rocketing power prices and heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar couldn’t be clearer. Every country that’s embarked on the so-called ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future is suffering from surging power prices. Add wind and solar generating capacity and watch power prices go into orbit, as […]

Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos: Germany’s Energy ‘Transition’ an Unmitigated Disaster

If the object of its renewable energy ‘transition’ was World’s highest power prices, it’s mission accomplished for Germany’s ‘Energiewende’. More than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels have made Germany the wind and solar cult’s favourite pinup girl. But there is not so much enthusiasm for Germany’s ‘green’ energy turn amongst businesses forced […]

Germany’s Renewables ‘Transition’ Means World’s Highest Power Prices & Power Rationing

Germany’s wind and solar transition aka the “Energiewende” is a monstrous debacle: power prices have rocketed out-of-control and wintertime power rationing is the new normal, thanks to the combination of solar panels plastered in ice, frozen wind turbines and dead calm frigid weather. Wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. […]
