Europe’s Self-Inflicted Energy Catastrophe Driven By Hopelessly Unreliable Wind & Solar

Anyone looking for a taste of what the ‘transition’ to wind and solar might look like, need look no further than Europe. The best (worst) examples, Germany and the UK are in the middle of self-inflicted energy debacles, with many of their neighbours not far behind. Mass wind droughts – that lasted months at the […]

Pushing On String: Adding More Wind Turbines Doesn’t Mean More Power Gets Delivered

Wind power never adds up: it doesn’t matter how many turbines carpet your horizons, in calm weather total output always amounts to nothing. For sheer density, the Germans win hands down, with more than 30,000 of these things carpeted across Deutschland’s rural landscapes and, once pristine, forests. And yet, from late September, through October and […]

When The Lights Go Out Across Europe: Wind Power Droughts Promise Mass Blackouts

The point has been reached when serious people are starting to talk seriously about serious power generation. Europe has been struck by an outbreak of calm weather and its wind power output has, predictably enough, plummeted. The disaster unfolding across the continent is like watching the same train wreck, over and over, again. The idea […]

‘Green’ Energy’s Epic Fail: Wind Gods Conspire to Ruin Europe’s Wind Power ‘Transition’

Europe’s ‘green’ energy transition has turned into high farce, with wind power output collapsing across the continent. The wind Gods are clearly angry. Britain and Germany have been in the doldrums for weeks; the gas needed to plug the gaps is in short supply, with the price of both gas and electricity, skyrocketing. The power […]

Coal Saves Germany (Again): Weather Conspires to Cut Annual Wind Power Production by 25%

Germany’s inevitable transition to wind and solar, ain’t so inevitable, after all. Coal-fired power plants have been urgently press-ganged back into action, as the weather conspires to drive wind power output through the floor. Inherently unreliable, wind power has never powered any serious economy; and never will. The problem with relying upon the weather for […]

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 […]

European Emergency: Chaotic Wind & Solar Collapses Threaten Entire Europe-Wide Blackout

This winter is delivering wind and solar obsessed Europeans a banquet of consequences. Massive power price spikes in ‘wind powered’ Britain followed a period of dead calm, as the owners of Britain’s remaining dispatchable power plants cashed in: the wholesale price went from £40 to £4,000 per MWh. Across the ditch, a complete collapse in […]
