Vladimir Putin Not Responsible For Germany’s Self-Inflicted Wind & Solar Calamity

Vlad Putin is being accused by pundits as the only reason why Europe’s power prices are spiralling out of control. Not so. Sure, his grip on oil and gas supplies to Europe has put the squeeze on, particularly in Germany, but its so-called wind and solar ‘transition’ – the ‘Energiewende’ – was in serious strife […]

Bitter Reality: Unreliable Renewables Will See Germans Freezing In The Dark This Winter

Electricity is one of those things that is only fully appreciated when a hopeful user is deprived of it. Across Europe, the cultlike fixation on wind and solar has provided precisely the environment in which households and businesses are coming to sense just how important having power as and when they need it, really is. […]

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 […]

Germans Brace For Energy Catastrophe: Prices Set to Triple When Nuclear & Coal Plants Close

Germany’s so-called ‘transition’ to wind and solar is an unmitigated disaster: power prices have rocketed and more blackouts loom this winter, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. Hellbent on self-destruction, the Germans are planning to kill off their last remaining nuclear power plants and are equally determined to axe all of their […]

RE Reckoning: Germans Suffer Europe’s Highest Power Prices – 300,000 Families Can’t Afford Electricity

  If ever there was an example of what follows from an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar, Germany has to be it. No country went harder or faster than Germany did, when it came to carpeting its landscape with solar panels and wind turbines. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. In the […]

Industrial Devolution: Renewables Obsession Leaves German Industry Crushed By Rocketing Power Prices

No country went harder and faster with its renewable obsession than Germany. The rocketing power prices that inevitably followed are crushing its once thriving industries, including motor manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz. The idea that a critical input cost to manufacturing can be tripled without affecting profitability and employment is, as any student of that dismal […]

Power Poverty: Subsidised Wind & Solar Means 5 Million Germans Struggle To Pay Rocketing Power Bills & 340,000 Families Cut From Grid

Germany’s wind and solar experiment has failed: the so-called ‘Energiewende’ (energy transition) has turned into an insanely costly debacle. German power prices have rocketed; blackouts and load shedding are the norm; and once bucolic farmland has been turned into industrial wastelands (see above). Hundreds of billions of euros have been squandered on subsidies to wind and solar, […]
