Transition to Bankruptcy: Europe’s Wind Turbine Makers Face Massive Financial Collapse

Europe’s wind turbine makers are in financial freefall; with subsidies slashed, demand for turbines has collapsed, input costs are soaring and their Chinese competitors are benefiting from their cheap and reliable supplies of coal-fired power. Oh, the irony! The barely disguised panic in this article from ReCharge (one of Europe’s leading wind and solar propaganda […]

Unreliable Wind & Solar Show Everything Depends On Reliable & Affordable Power Supplies

2021 was the year when the inherent unreliability of wind and solar revealed how everything depends upon reliable and affordable power supplies. The wind and solar ‘industries’ talk a big game; and in their wilder moments even claim to be capable of replacing conventional coal, gas and nuclear generators, altogether. Europe’s months-long wind drought in […]

Dumb & Dumber: Germany Wins Prize For World’s Most Idiotic Energy Policy

Germany set the gold standard for idiotic renewable energy policies, although the Brits, Californians, Texans and South Australians are keen contenders for that glittering prize. Thanks to its unhinged obsession with intermittent wind and solar, Germans are in the midst of a power pricing and supply calamity. Suffering Europe’s highest power prices, is just the […]

China & Russia Profit From West’s Ludicrous Obsession With Unreliable Wind and Solar

As Germany scrambles to secure the gas needed to prevent their wind and solar ‘powered’ grid from total collapse, Vladimir Putin is laughing all the way to the bank. And the Russians aren’t the only ones profiting from the West’s maniacal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. China – with plenty of unwilling assistance […]

Pushing On String: Adding More Wind Turbines Doesn’t Mean More Power Gets Delivered

Wind power never adds up: it doesn’t matter how many turbines carpet your horizons, in calm weather total output always amounts to nothing. For sheer density, the Germans win hands down, with more than 30,000 of these things carpeted across Deutschland’s rural landscapes and, once pristine, forests. And yet, from late September, through October and […]

Energy Deficient: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germany Faces Long Dark Winter

With another bitter winter biting and suicidal renewable energy policies, Germans are reaping the whirlwind. Suffering Europe’s highest power prices and routine power rationing, is just the beginning. Mass blackouts and deliberate power cuts, like those suffered last winter, are guaranteed. Such is life when you attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. Prof. Fritz […]

When The Lights Go Out Across Europe: Wind Power Droughts Promise Mass Blackouts

The point has been reached when serious people are starting to talk seriously about serious power generation. Europe has been struck by an outbreak of calm weather and its wind power output has, predictably enough, plummeted. The disaster unfolding across the continent is like watching the same train wreck, over and over, again. The idea […]

Coal Saves Germany (Again): Weather Conspires to Cut Annual Wind Power Production by 25%

Germany’s inevitable transition to wind and solar, ain’t so inevitable, after all. Coal-fired power plants have been urgently press-ganged back into action, as the weather conspires to drive wind power output through the floor. Inherently unreliable, wind power has never powered any serious economy; and never will. The problem with relying upon the weather for […]

Some ‘Transition’: German Wind Power Output Plummets 20%: Coal-Fired Power Generation Jumps 38%

  Germany’s 30,000 wind turbines continue to disappoint those who reckon ‘coal is dead’.  In the first half of 2021, wind power output plummeted by more than 20%, whereas Germany’s coal-fired power generators increased output by a whopping 38% over the same period. So much for Germany’s ‘inevitable transition’ to an all wind and sun […]

Russia Revisited: Germany’s Winter Wind & Solar Drought Results in Soviet Style Power Rationing

Soviet shortages led to the gag about “what has 100 legs and eats cabbage?” 50 Muscovites lining up to buy sausage. Wind and solar obsessed Germans must feel a little like the USSR’s (unwilling) vegetarians at the moment. Their endless seas of solar panels are plastered thick with snow and ice and, accordingly, producing two […]
