Germany’s Renewables ‘Transition’ Means World’s Highest Power Prices & Power Rationing

Germany’s wind and solar transition aka the “Energiewende” is a monstrous debacle: power prices have rocketed out-of-control and wintertime power rationing is the new normal, thanks to the combination of solar panels plastered in ice, frozen wind turbines and dead calm frigid weather. Wind and solar obsessed Germans are now paying record prices for electricity. […]

Coal Comfort: Total Collapse in Wind & Solar Output Leaves Freezing Germans Desperate for Coal-Fired Power

Germany’s held up as the world’s wind and solar capital. But, at the moment, the ‘green’ stuff can’t be purchased, at any price. Its millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and ice and breathless, freezing weather is encouraging its 30,000 wind turbines to do absolutely nothing, at all. [Note to Ed: don’t forget […]

RE Reckoning: Germans Suffer Europe’s Highest Power Prices – 300,000 Families Can’t Afford Electricity

  If ever there was an example of what follows from an obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar, Germany has to be it. No country went harder or faster than Germany did, when it came to carpeting its landscape with solar panels and wind turbines. The results have been an unmitigated disaster. In the […]

War of The Walds: Germany’s Forests Overrun With Wind Turbines in Dystopian ‘Green’ Nightmare

Germany’s landscape has been carpeted with more than 30,000 gigantic industrial wind turbines: the result is a dystopian nightmare, reminiscent of HG Wells’ The War of the Worlds. Except that the battle is being waged in towns and villages and most visibly in the German walds – with whole forests being clear-felled to make way […]

Germany’s Fascists March Again With Effort to Crush All Community Opposition to Wind Power

The Nazis destroyed tens of millions of lives and are synonymous with industrialised mass murder. But few realise that Hitler and his gang of monstrous thugs were the first serious wind power advocates. As Rupert Darwall put it: German obsession with renewable energy originates deep within its culture. Few know today that the Nazis were […]

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 […]

Energy Magic: Wind & Solar ‘Industries’ Pin Their Future on Great Hydrogen Hoax

RE rent seekers are touting hydrogen gas produced with unpredictable and unreliable wind and solar power as the next ‘green’ energy Nirvana. If producing industrial volumes of hydrogen using electricity were even vaguely economic, then the obvious way of doing so would be to use coal-fired power; the cheapest and most reliable power source, of […]

Cold Comfort: 20 Years Of Subsidies to Wind & Solar Leaves Germans Suffering World’s Highest Power Prices

No country has squandered more on subsidies to wind and solar than Germany; no country pays more for its power. Which is hardly a coincidence. The idea that millions of solar panels lying frozen under sheets of snow for months each year would provide some kind of benefit to power consumers beggars belief. So too, […]

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 […]

Dark Ages Transition: Wind & Solar Obsessed Germans Left Freezing In the Dark

The renewable energy cult raves about the ‘inevitable transition’, pointing to Germany as the shining example, which it is, if your point is that heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar will inevitably drive power prices through the roof and leave hopeful power consumers freezing in the dark. No country went harder and faster […]
