Cold Comfort: 20 Years Of Subsidies to Wind & Solar Leaves Germans Suffering World’s Highest Power Prices

No country has squandered more on subsidies to wind and solar than Germany; no country pays more for its power. Which is hardly a coincidence. The idea that millions of solar panels lying frozen under sheets of snow for months each year would provide some kind of benefit to power consumers beggars belief. So too, […]

Hush Money: Government Plans to Bribe German Families Complaining About Wind Turbine Noise to Quell Wind Farm Backlash

The wind industry in Germany is in freefall: in 2019 less than 200 turbines were erected onshore and a trifling 160 are planned for 2020, so far. Over the last two decades, heavily subsidised wind power outfits managed to spear almost 30,000 of these things across rural Germany. Driven mad by practically incessant, turbine generated […]

Kaput!!: German Resistance Killing Off Wind Power Projects – Wind Turbine Construction at a Standstill

Not long ago, Germany led the charge on wind power, now its wind industry faces Armageddon. Subsidies have been cut. Market rules against intermittent sources have been tightened. Germany’s rural residents are on the brink of revolt, fed up with their bucolic landscapes being trashed and being forced to live with practically incessant turbine generated […]

Game Over: Europe’s Great Renewables Rush Faces Armageddon

Death and taxes are certainties, so is the fact that wind and solar investment disappears just as soon the subsidies are cut. Without massive (and seemingly endless) subsidies we wouldn’t be having this conversation: there would have been no such thing as wind and solar power, on any scale, or at all. Twelve countries in […]

‘Clean’ Energy Kaput: Germany’s ‘Inevitable’ Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ An Inevitable & Total Failure

Germany is the world leader when it comes to wind and solar and worth following, if you’re keen to return to the Dark Ages. Germans suffer Europe’s highest power prices – right up there with wind ‘powered’ Denmark and just behind South Australia, Australia’s wind and solar capital – which tops the list. Its so-called […]

Seriously Shortchanged: Germans to Squander €4.6 Trillion on Intermittent Wind & Solar – Get 2.5% of Their Energy In Return

If the recent and idiotic obsession with intermittent wind and solar needed a pinup girl, it would have to be Germany. No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless sea of solar panels. For all that wanton environmental destruction, Germans get a meagre 2.5% of their primary energy demand satisfied by […]

German Obsession with Wind & Solar Means Power Prices Set To Keep Skyrocketing

Germany’s renewable energy transition is an unmitigated disaster: 5 million households are struggling to pay their power bills and 340,000 have been cut from the grid, because they can’t. The push towards a mythical all wind and sun powered future continues apace. Notwithstanding it’s a technical and physical impossibility. Germans happily drain nuclear power generated […]
