Sudden Wind Change: Wind Industry Wilts as Ontario Scraps ‘Green’ Energy Act

Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne simultaneously destroyed her political fortunes, as she set about destroying one of Canada’s most productive provinces. A raft of policies drawn up by Wynne and her fellow eco-zealots, all safely ensconced in Toronto, resulted in thousands of these things being speared right across Ontario. Furious communities and rocketing power prices are the […]

Renewable Energy Zealots Furious: Australia’s New PM Determined to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies and Exit Paris Climate ‘Deal’

Ever rocketing power prices were what scuttled Australia’s suicidal renewable energy policies. The National Energy Guarantee was an effort to expand (exponentially) and extend (indefinitely) Australia’s already crippling Large-Scale Renewable Energy Target. A mixture of hubris and overreach by those championing the NEG – which included the ex-PM (we seem to recall his name was […]

Renewables Reset: Rocketing Power Prices Mean New PM Bound to Slash Wind & Solar Subsidies

Australia’s renewable energy policy has just imploded and, with it, the set-in-stone ‘certainty’ craved by renewable energy rent seekers. Never again will wind and solar power outfits be able to rely on the bipartisan support for subsidies to renewables, critical to their ‘business’ models. Generating power at the chaotic whims of nature’s wonder fuels means […]

Newsflash: Power Costs More With Intermittent Wind & Solar – A Whole Lot More

Australia’s renewable energy policy is doomed: and it was rocketing power prices that killed it. No State went harder or faster than South Australia, when it came to the rollout of solar panels and giant windmills. Notorious for mass load shedding events and a statewide blackout, that left parts of the economic backwater without power […]

Australia’s Renewable Energy Policy Implodes: With Power Prices Rocketing MPs Demand Immediate End to Wind & Solar Subsidies

In less than a week, RE zealots went from full-scale offensive to wholesale retreat, with disaster now imminent for wind and solar outfits. Instead of getting their National Energy Guarantee up and running – a policy which would have effectively doubled the amount of subsidised and intermittent wind and solar capacity in Australia – Audrey […]

Downfall: Malcolm Turnbull Doomed as Rebel MP’s Wreck PM’s Big Push for More Subsidised Wind & Solar

  Australia’s RE obsessed PM, Malcolm Turnbull has committed political Hara-Kiri with his brazen push to double subsidies to wind and solar. The National Energy Guarantee is being pitched as a policy that will slash Australian retail power bills, notwithstanding that it effectively increases the current annual Renewable Energy Target (currently 33,000 GWh for wind […]

Crunch Time: Australia’s Self-Inflicted Energy Crisis Down to Wind & Solar Obsession

At the heart of Australia’s self-inflicted power pricing and supply calamity is an obsession with intermittent and unreliable wind and solar. Mandated and massive subsidies – that those attempting to deliver electricity using nature’s wonder fuels have been wallowing in since the Australian Labor Party seriously upped the RE ante in 2010 – resulted in a […]
