True & Staggering Cost of Intermittent & Unreliable Wind Power – Unplugged

The total cost of attempting to incorporate intermittent, unreliable and chaotic wind power into a grid designed around stable, controllable, dispatchable power generation is utterly staggering. In those places attempting to run on sunshine and breezes, grid managers are forced to regularly intervene, compelling the owners of conventional fossil-fuelled generation plant (coal and gas) to […]

America’s Wind Industry Doomed as Republicans Back Cheap, Reliable Coal & Nuclear

  As a first world energy source, there’s only one problem with wind power: and that would be the W-I-N-D. The United States of America didn’t become the richest and most powerful Nation on earth running on sunshine and breezes. To become the industrial juggernaut and technological master that it is, Americans burnt mountains of […]

Wind ‘Powered’ Germans Reduced to Candles: Grid On the Brink of Collapse – 172,000 Power Outages in 2016 & Worse to Come

Wind ‘powered’ Germany, Denmark and South Australia pay the highest power prices in the world. And you’d be forgiven for thinking that a Rolls-Royce power price comes with a Rolls-Royce quality of service.

‘Green’ Premiers Red-Faced: Wind Power Fiasco Ends in Dirty Diesel Debacle

  Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes sometimes reads like the farcical plot of an episode of Blackadder or Fawlty Towers. In a ‘you couldn’t make this up if you tried’ moment, Australia’s ‘greenest’ States, Victoria and South Australia (which has been forced to wear its mantle as ‘Australia’s wind power capital’, […]

Renewable Chaos Shock Treatment: Australia’s Politicians Panic at Threat of Looming Blackouts

Australia’s self-inflicted energy ‘crisis’ is the consequence of considered and deliberate action that promoted weather dependent wind power and time-dependent solar power at the expense of the secure, reliable and affordable stuff. As the political panic spreads, it’s quite apparent, that those who created the disaster have almost no idea how resolve it. The PM, […]

The Nuclear Option: Atomic Solution to Australia’s Energy Crisis

In the blink of an eye, Australia’s media circus has finally woken up to the scale and scope of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity. More ink has been spilt in the last few weeks on the subject than in the whole of the last decade. Wind power capital, South Australia’s blackouts and load […]
