Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

‘Ministry of Plenty’ Declares Weather-Driven Power Rationing All For The Greater Good

In Orwell’s 1984, the Ministry of Plenty was quick to herald any positive statistic, however bogus. Standards of living were always rising; as was the production of food, shoelaces and ill-fitting boots. Triumphant announcements were made about the chocolate ration increasing, simultaneously that the ration was, in fact, being reduced. An example of what the […]

Supply Squeeze: Relying on Wind & Solar? Get Ready For Daily Power Rationing

Daily power rationing is the inevitable product of the ‘inevitable’ transition to an all wind and sun powered future. When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in wind and solar power can’t be bought, at any price. So, even at first glance, the perceived logic of supplying consumers with electricity from nothing but wholly […]

Perfect Storm: Renewables Obsession Leaves Europeans Vulnerable During Bitter Winter

Wind and solar are meant to be the solution to our looming weather woes. The truth is that the weather-dependent ‘unreliables’ have increased our mortal vulnerability to mother nature’s vagaries. Europe is in the grip of a bitter winter and, with routine and total collapses in both wind and solar output, its electricity grid is […]

European Emergency: Chaotic Wind & Solar Collapses Threaten Entire Europe-Wide Blackout

This winter is delivering wind and solar obsessed Europeans a banquet of consequences. Massive power price spikes in ‘wind powered’ Britain followed a period of dead calm, as the owners of Britain’s remaining dispatchable power plants cashed in: the wholesale price went from £40 to £4,000 per MWh. Across the ditch, a complete collapse in […]

Some Transition!: Europe’s Power Prices Rocket Whenever the Sun Sets & Calm Weather Sets In

  Europe’s ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar is not looking so ‘inevitable’, after all. A burst of cold, calm weather has grid managers panicking as to where their next megawatt might come from. Those opportunistic ‘devils’ who command reliable, fossil-fuelled power generation sources are making out like veritable bandits. While power punters are bracing […]
