Power Brawl: German Power Prices Rocket As Excess Wind & Solar Dumped On Neighbours

German energy policy is a fiasco; the so-called energy transition is a debacle. Germans suffer the highest power prices in Europe, all thanks to an obsession with intermittent wind and solar. When the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, Germany is forced to import huge volumes of power from its neighbours, particularly nuclear-powered France […]

The ‘Unreliables’: Europe’s Power Grid Under Threat from Chaotic Wind & Solar

  Germany may have led the charge, but other European states merrily followed its suicidal attempt to run on sunshine and breezes. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy […]

Power Deficit: Wind Power’s Hopeless Intermittency Leaves Germans Scrambling For Reliable Generation

What seemed like a good idea at the time, has turned into an unmitigated disaster. Germany threw more at wind and solar than any other country on earth; its government has done everything in its power to make it work. It’s still at it. Except there’s a couple of things that it can never control: […]

Crazytown: German Professor’s Solution to Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency: More Wind & Solar!

Our good friends, logic and reason have taken a pounding from wind and solar obsessed renewable energy rent seekers and zealots over the years. For the best part of 20 years, they’ve been trying to convince us that wind and solar are reliable, affordable and as safe as houses. If you’re looking for a singular […]

Frozen: Germany’s Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Turns Into Power Pricing & Supply Disaster

Because RE zealots crowed about Germany’s ‘inevitable transition’ to wind and solar from the outset, it’s no surprise that its disastrous conclusion is attracting attention, much like a freeway pileup. Germany’s so-called Energiewende (energy transition) has turned into a power pricing and supply calamity. Which was as perfectly predictable as it was perfectly avoidable. Jonathan […]

If Wind & Solar Are So Cheap, Why Are Germans Paying World’s Highest Power Prices?

Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie: Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices And, with a looming capacity crunch, Germans will be lucky to have power at all, at any […]

Crunch Time: Germany’s Wind & Solar Disaster Leaves Germans Scrambling For Reliable Power

Germany’s obsession with intermittent wind and solar was never going to end well. Power prices are now the highest in Europe, if not the world. But paying for power is only a problem for those Germans who are lucky enough to be supplied with it. Wherever there’s an attempt to run on sunshine and breezes, […]

Renewable Energy Transition: Wind & Solar Obsession Leaves Germans Suffering the World’s Highest Power Prices

The only things ‘inevitable’ about ‘transitioning’ to wind and solar are rocketing power prices, load shedding and mass blackouts. Ask a German or South Australian. Renewable energy zealots keep telling us that wind and solar are free and getting cheaper all the time. Germany puts paid to that lie, as does Denmark and South Australia, […]

Toxic Shock: Millions of Wind Turbine Blades Leave Poisoned Landfill Legacy For Generations To Come

Troubled teenagers demanding an all wind and sun powered future are setting themselves up for an almighty toxic shock, with hundreds of millions of wind turbine blades destined for landfill. As Steve St. Angelo reports from the USA, wind turbine blades are non-recyclable due to the fact that they are a complex composite of highly […]

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 […]
