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 […]

Big Backpedal: A Week After Shutting its Coal-Fired Plants Germany Forced to Reopen Them

  Germany’s renewable energy ‘transition’ has turned into high farce: a week after it forced the shutdown of 11 coal-fired power plants, it was forced to reopen them to avoid mass blackouts. German power prices – already the highest in Europe (if not the world) – are running out of control. The recent legislated ban […]

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. […]

German Hi-Tech Firms Driven Offshore By Unaffordable & Unreliable Renewable Energy

‘Net zero’ is precisely the number of meaningful jobs that’ll be left after our ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future. Looking for an example? Look no further than the wind and solar acolyte’s pinup girl, Germany. Notwithstanding billions of euros in subsidies, courageous mandates and punitive targets, its Energiewende has failed […]

Coal Comfort: Total Collapse in Wind & Solar Output Leaves Freezing Germans Desperate for Coal-Fired Power

Germany’s held up as the world’s wind and solar capital. But, at the moment, the ‘green’ stuff can’t be purchased, at any price. Its millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and ice and breathless, freezing weather is encouraging its 30,000 wind turbines to do absolutely nothing, at all. [Note to Ed: don’t forget […]

RE Reckoning: Germans Suffer Europe’s Highest Power Prices – 300,000 Families Can’t Afford Electricity

  If ever there was an example of what follows from an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar, Germany has to be it. No country went harder or faster than Germany did, when it came to carpeting its landscape with solar panels and wind turbines. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. In the […]

Beyond Redemption: Germany’s Suicidal Wind & Solar Obsession Delivers Energy Debacle

You know RE scammers are on the ropes, when they start talking about non-existent grid-scale batteries, pumped hydro and, the latest lunacy, converting chaotically intermittent wind and solar into hydrogen gas. In the beginning, when the quizzical pressed them about the inherent unreliability of wind and solar, it was brushed off with glib statements such […]

Barking Mad: Germany’s Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Built on Grand ‘Green’ Delusions

  Renewables zealots tout Germany as the benchmark for the ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar, but its energy system is a complete debacle. Germany’s so-called Energiewende (energy transition) has turned into a power pricing and supply calamity. Which was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Germany’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar […]

Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices

The only things ‘inevitable’ about ‘transitioning’ to wind and solar are rocketing power prices, load shedding and mass blackouts. Ask a German or South Australian. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, […]

Industrial Devolution: Renewables Obsession Leaves German Industry Crushed By Rocketing Power Prices

No country went harder and faster with its renewable obsession than Germany. The rocketing power prices that inevitably followed are crushing its once thriving industries, including motor manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz. The idea that a critical input cost to manufacturing can be tripled without affecting profitability and employment is, as any student of that dismal […]
