Totally Torched: Low-Cost Offshore Wind Power Claims Go Up In Smoke

Europe’s great wind drought continues, unabated. Adding to the wind industry’s woes, its claims that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time have been totally torched – again. Over the last two years, Andrew Montford has been keeping a close eye on the financial reports produced by the UK’s offshore wind […]

Chaos Costs: Why Intermittent Delivery of Wind & Solar Causes Crippling Power Prices

Add intermittent wind and solar to a power grid and crippling power prices follow, as night follows day. When power generation and delivery was in the hands of engineers, coal and gas-fired plants ran efficiently and costs were low. Now that ideology reigns instead, and lunatics are firmly in charge of the asylum, the efficient […]

Goodbye Glasgow – Hello Energy Poverty: The Staggering True Cost of Wind & Solar

If the Climate Industrial Complex gets its way, kiss goodbye to reliable and affordable energy. The apparent answer all our woes is more of the same: endless subsidies to hopelessly chaotic wind and solar, with even greater subsidies to pie-in-the-sky ‘green’ hydrogen and insanely expensive giant lithium batteries. If you’re not already suffering the consequences […]

Rebellion Against Extinction: Civilisation Always & Everywhere About Reliable & Affordable Energy

Try living a day without a reliable power supply; then try living a life-time without it. If the doomsday cult that’s thrusting hopelessly unreliable and insanely expensive wind and solar down our throats had its way, then that’s what a future ‘civilisation’ will look like. For those not willing to make an immediate sacrifice to […]

Ever Ascendant: True Cost of Unreliable Wind & Solar Continues to Rise Unabated

If wind and solar power were truly competitive with conventional generators, there would be no need for even a nickel in subsidies. The fact they continue unabated says it all. Claims that the cost of wind and solar generation are falling don’t stand a minute’s serious scrutiny. One group that has applied a blowtorch to […]

No Blank Cheques: No One Wants to Pay a Nickel More for Renewables & ‘Climate Action’

The difference between virtue signalling and personal sacrifice is evident when the hat gets passed around to pay for so-called “climate action” – which simply means more, and endless, subsidies for chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The trope has it that it’s the youth who are most adamant about trashing ever reliable and affordable electricity […]

Renewables Rip-off: ‘Free’ Offshore Wind Power Costs Six Times the Average Cost of Power in USA

Americans are fast learning that the cost of wind power is staggering, and the cost of offshore wind power is astronomical. Joe Biden and his Squad are eager to plant thousands of these things up and down the Atlantic coast, claiming that offshore wind power is ‘free’ and getting cheaper all the time. It’s a […]

‘Inevitable Transition’: Get Ready For the Insane Cost of Attempting to Rely on Wind & Solar

Want rocketing power prices and an unreliable supply? Then, subsidised wind and solar is just made for you. The very point of subsidies to wind and solar is to knock reliable, dispatchable generation sources, out of the game. In wind and solar obsessed South Australia, that’s already occurred, with a vengeance: it blew up its […]

No Brainer: Subsidised Wind Power is What’s Driving Your Power Prices Through the Roof

Rocketing power prices and grid instability are two inescapable consequences of subsidised wind and solar. While sunshine and breezes might be free, attempting to run your power system using nature’s gifts, brings with it a raft of other costs which RE zealots tend to gloss over. The electricity generation and distribution system – which wind […]

In-a-Nutshell: New Research Shows Why Unreliable Wind & Solar Can Never Power Us

There’s a reason not to support heavily subsidised wind and solar: they simply don’t work as meaningful power sources; they never have and never will. A team of Irish and US-based researchers have produced a comprehensive piece of research explaining just why any dollar spent propping up chaotically intermittent wind and solar with taxpayer’s money, […]
