German Wind Industry Collapse Imminent: Engineering Professor Deems ‘Energiewende’ Terminal

Germany has been held up by renewable energy zealots as the shining example of how to run on sunshine and breezes. However, like its doppelgänger down under, South Australia, eventually and inevitably, reality bites. German householders and businesses (just like those in South Australia) are being belted by rocketing power prices and – every time […]

Greens Founder Calls Germany’s Renewables Policy: “an Economic, Social and Ecological Disaster”

When people turn on wind power, it’s a one-way proposition: they never, ever worship these things again. And when the convert was among those who first championed the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, they don’t just quietly fall out of love, they tend to become the loudest critics of all; a bit […]

Germany’s Wind Power Debacle Worsens: Too Much Power One Day, None the Next

*** Like South Australians, Germans are attempting to run on sunshine and breezes and in both places the results have been an unmitigated disaster. When power output depends on the weather and whether the sun is up and the sky isn’t clouded up, results can, as they say in marketing blurbs, ‘vary’. During January of […]

Germany’s Monumental Environmental Fail: CO2 Emissions Rise Despite €Trillions Blown on Subsidised Wind & Solar

In Germany, around €190 billion has already been burnt on renewable subsidies; currently the green energy levy costs €56 million every day. And, the level of subsidy for wind and solar sees Germans paying €20 billion a year for power that gets sold on the power exchange for around €2 billion. Energy poverty is a […]

Wind Power Sends German Power Prices Rocketing as CO2 Emissions Continue to Rise

Germany has long been the poster-child for the wind-cult, the World over. But the way things have panned out, wind worshippers will soon need another pin-up girl. The cost of its maniacal rush into massively subsidised wind and solar to German businesses and households has been astronomical and, in the mother of all ironies, CO2 […]

Germany’s Wind Powered Transition: a Policy in Chaos

It’s not easy being green: Even with new reforms, doubts remain about Germany’s energy transition The Economist 13 August 2016 Brandenburg used to be called the sandbox of the Holy Roman Empire for its poor soil and marginal geography. Today a more appropriate moniker might be “the wind farm of the European Union” for all […]

Massively Subsidised Wind Power Crushes Germany’s Biggest Power Provider as CO2 Emissions Soar

*** The parallels between Germany and South Australia are as uncanny as they are frightening. The common feature being, of course, their ludicrous attempt to rely on sunshine and breezes. Like South Australians, Germans went into wind power harder and faster than anyone else – and the cost of doing so is catching up with a vengeance. […]
