Reaping The Whirlwind: Europe’s Wind & Solar Obsession Sends Power Prices Rocketing

Europeans have squandered untold $billions on chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The only evident results being routine power rationing, blackouts and power prices doubling every 12 months, or so. The article below from Bloomberg lays it out fairly clearly: those countries obsessed with wind and solar are literally reaping the whirlwind, as power prices spiral […]

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 […]

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 […]

Dead-Calm Weather Killing ‘Inevitable’ Renewable Energy ‘Transition’

Wind power is, by definition, a wholly weather-dependent power source. So, it should come as no surprise that – whenever a burst of calm-weather hits – those charged with responsibility for delivering power, as and when we need it, scramble to obtain it from any convenient and, more importantly, reliable source. Which is why Germany […]

Power Market Manipulators Reap Windfall Whenever Wind & Solar Power Output Falls

When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, the price gouging by the owners of reliable power generation plant, begins. When those paragons of corporate virtue that ran Enron started ripping off Californian power consumers during the late 1990s, they did it by shutting down gas pipelines and pretending gas-fired power plants were off-line […]

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 […]

Energy Transition: Germans Revolt Against Wind Power – As Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

Germany’s wind power transition has hit the wall: rural Germans are sick and tired of the noise, ruined landscapes and communities; and Germans of all persuasions are fed up with Europe’s highest power prices, which continue to rocket as a consequence of its so-called ‘renewable energy transition’ aka the ‘Energiewende’. Thanks to massive subsidies and […]

Cost Cover-up: German Government Hiding Massive Cost of Wind & Solar Subsidies

German power consumers now suffer Europe’s highest power prices, thanks to massive subsidies to unreliable wind and solar. With hundreds of thousands of households no longer able to afford power, and energy hungry, high-tech businesses shifting their operations to places like Singapore – where power is a tiny fraction of the cost – Germany’s renewables […]

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 […]

Big Backpedal: A Week After Shutting its Coal-Fired Plants Germany Forced to Reopen Them

  Germany’s renewable energy ‘transition’ has turned into high farce: a week after it forced the shutdown of 11 coal-fired power plants, it was forced to reopen them to avoid mass blackouts. German power prices – already the highest in Europe (if not the world) – are running out of control. The recent legislated ban […]
