‘Renewables’ Failure Rekindles German Love Affair With Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power

The fact that consumers want power as and when they need it, at prices they can afford, has scuttled Germany’s grand wind and solar ‘transition’. This is one of the stories that the MSM has been running away from for years; since February 22, they’ve been running the meme that it’s all Vlad Putin’s fault. […]

Ever Reliable: Nuclear & Coal-Fired Power Provide Germany’s Only Energy Salvation

Seems like only yesterday that Germany’s grand wind and solar transition was the talk of the town. Dubbed the “Energiewende”, it was meant to spell an inevitable end to nuclear and coal-fired power, which would soon be replaced by nothing other than forests of wind turbines and seas of solar panels. Well, that was what […]

Renewables Triumph: Wind & Solar ‘Powered’ Germans Aim for World Record Power Price

Remember all that guff about ‘cheap’ wind and solar power? No? That’s probably because every country that throws buckets of subsidies at the unreliables ends up suffering off-the-charts power prices. The wind and sun are free, we’re told. But, somehow, the promises of cheap power at the end of the renewable energy transition rainbow keep […]

Cold Consequence: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Promises Very Bitter Winter Ahead

Germans are paying the price for their Green-Left government’s maniacal fixation on heavily subsidised and hopelessly intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, with prices still on the ascendant, German bureaucrats have been reduced to rationing energy of all descriptions at the micro level, in a way not seen since its postwar […]

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 […]

Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos: Germany’s Energy ‘Transition’ an Unmitigated Disaster

If the object of its renewable energy ‘transition’ was World’s highest power prices, it’s mission accomplished for Germany’s ‘Energiewende’. More than 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels have made Germany the wind and solar cult’s favourite pinup girl. But there is not so much enthusiasm for Germany’s ‘green’ energy turn amongst businesses forced […]

All Time High: Wind & Solar Obsession Triples Power Costs to German Industry & Domestic Prices Highest in Europe

In another ‘proof is in the pudding moment’, wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. German households suffer the highest prices in Europe. And, over the last 20 years, the prices paid by German industry have almost tripled. Faced with the choice between going broke or going elsewhere, Germany’s world-renowned […]
