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’.

Germany has speared over 30,000 of these things across its countryside. As land for doing so has become increasingly scarce, the strategy has been to clear-fell forests that were […]

Game Over: German Wind Industry In Free Fall As Renewable Energy ‘Transition’ Hits the Wall

Meanwhile, hundreds have already been demolished and – with hundreds more reaching the end of their economic life – the only growth […]

Secondly, the behemoths that might replace their ancestors are so large as to exceed the height limits placed on turbines by Germany’s planning rules. Pierre Gosselin can […]
