Unable to Pay Their Rocketing Power Bills, Germans Told to ‘Huddle Up’ Next Winter

Germany’s obsession with unreliable wind and solar has households and businesses paying the Europe’s highest power prices, when electricity isn’t being rationed, that is. That more than 300,000 German households can no longer afford electricity, comes as no surprise. That hundreds of thousands of people in Europe’s richest economy are forced to heat their homes […]

Renewables Road to Nowhere: Subsidised Wind & Solar Just Don’t Work & Never Will

In the absence of mandates directing grid managers to take chaotic wind or solar power ahead of conventional power and/or massive subsidies directed to retailers encouraging them to take it and/or heavy fines imposed on them if they refuse to, there is simply no commercial market for power which can only be generated occasionally, in […]

Skyrocketing Power Prices & Power Rationing: Germany First To Hit The Wind & Solar Wall

Germans are in the midst of a power pricing and supply disaster thanks to the world’s most idiotic energy policy, centred on an unhinged obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, consumers are bracing for even worse to come. Vladimir Putin’s Ukrainian adventure has merely brought things to a […]

Wind & Solar Industries Outraged: EU Declares Nuclear & Gas Are “Green” Too

Rent-seekers have been telling us that wind and solar will soon not only displace, but entirely replace, our “ageing” coal-fired power plants, knock gas-fired plants out of the ballpark and crush nuclear power plants before they even enter the contest. Such was the hype, anyway. Then came 2021. Massive month-long wind droughts left wind power […]

Russia’s Ukrainian Invasion Equation: Europe Ditches Wind & Solar Transition

Like a jilted bride, wind and solar have lost all love and favour as Europe scrambles for reliable and affordable energy. Now it seems that the only inevitable thing about the ‘inevitable transition’ is that when people are forced to choose between electricity delivered reliably and affordably and the purportedly clean and green kind, they […]

Self-Inflicted Energy Insecurity: Vlad Impales Wind & Solar Obsessed Europe

Like a giant boa constrictor, oil and gas-rich Vlad Putin has a chokehold on wind and solar-obsessed Europe. ‘Green’ policies designed to wipe out reliable and affordable coal and nuclear power plants – on the pretext that they would be replaced by the chaotic output from wind turbines and solar panels – have long been […]

No Plan B: Germany’s Crazy Reliance on Wind & Solar Guarantees Mass Blackouts

Germany is a heartbeat away from a massive nationwide blackout, and yet its government is oblivious. Warnings from grid managers and its own Audit Office are being ignored. Believing that it will be able to close all of its nuclear power plants as scheduled, the German government continues in its attempt to defy reality. When […]

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 […]

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 […]

Power Deficit: Wind Power’s Hopeless Intermittency Leaves Germans Scrambling For Reliable Generation

What seemed like a good idea at the time, has turned into an unmitigated disaster. Germany threw more at wind and solar than any other country on earth; its government has done everything in its power to make it work. It’s still at it. Except there’s a couple of things that it can never control: […]
