Reality Bites: Germany’s Wind & Solar Transition Declared Abject Failure

The German government’s cultish obsession with wind and solar is a mixture of wishful thinking and mass delusion. Both have collided with reality as Vlad Putin continues to put the squeeze on Europe’s gas supplies – gas which has been used to run the banks of fast-start-up gas turbines essential to backing up mammoth, sudden […]

Subsidised Renewables Revolt: Entrenched Energy Poverty Source of Next Revolution

Power prices driven through the roof by subsidised and unreliable wind and solar means electricity is out of reach for thousands of struggling households. Reliable and affordable electricity is at the heart of modern, socially stable societies. Deprive the masses of something that has been taken for granted for generations, and get set for serious […]

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 […]

Skyrocketing Power Prices & Power Rationing: Germany First To Hit The Wind & Solar Wall

Germans are in the midst of a power pricing and supply disaster thanks to the world’s most idiotic energy policy, centred on an unhinged obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. Already suffering Europe’s highest power prices, consumers are bracing for even worse to come. Vladimir Putin’s Ukrainian adventure has merely brought things to a […]

Nuclear Power: Perfect Cure For Wind & Solar Driven Pricing & Supply Calamity

Europe’s power market is in a diabolical mess: massive subsidies to intermittent wind and solar have undermined reliable and affordable power supplies, sending Germany and Denmark’s power prices through the roof (see above). Since Vladimir Putin’s adventure in Ukraine, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per kWh. […]

Apologise Now: West’s Attempt To Rely On Wind & Solar A Monumental Mistake

Anyone who still believes in an ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar, clearly hasn’t been paying attention. The same crowd tells us that ‘coal is dead’, ignoring the fact that coal demand continues to rise and the record prices paid for the black stuff is through the roof. The Russian advance on Ukraine has only […]

RE Bites Back: Europe’s Wind Turbine Makers Can’t Compete With Coal-Powered China

Victims of their own success, Europe’s wind turbine makers are being crushed by rocketing power prices – caused by reliance on intermittent wind and solar. Oh, the irony… The staggering surge in European energy costs has rendered them unable to compete with Chinese manufacturers, whose operations benefit from abundant supplies of nuclear and coal-fired power. […]

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 […]

Blown Away: Counting The Cost of Europe’s Self-Made Renewable Energy Crisis

Europe’s insatiable appetite for unreliable wind and solar has left Europeans hungry for any kind of power, provided it’s available on demand. The French have rebooted investment in their 56 existing nuclear plants and are planning a further 14 to add to their enviable fleet. The Brits and the Germans are stoking up their ‘ageing’ […]

Why Wind Power Output Collapses Are Causing Europe’s Power Prices to Rocket

Rocketing power prices were inevitable once Europe decided to put all its energy eggs in the wind power basket. Europe has squandered billions on subsidies to construct tens of thousands of turbines both onshore and off – the Germans managed to spear more than 30,000 across their homeland and are paying a hefty price. By […]
