Subsidised Suicide: Wind & Solar Power Chaos Driving Britain’s Rocketing Power Prices

Britain’s power consumers are paying a heavy price for its maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Trashing its coal-fired power fleet and failing to keep up its nuclear plants now looks positively suicidal. However, of late, the MSM has been dishing up an alternative reality, peddling a line that power prices would be a […]

Money For Nothing: Europe Squandered $Trillions On Weather-Dependent Part Time Power

Despite Europe spending €1.2 Trillion on large-scale wind and solar generation, the amount of power being actually delivered in return is risible. Which is precisely what you’d expect from power generation sources which can only deliver anything like their nameplate capacity when the sun is up, in a cloudless sky, and the wind is blowing […]

Why Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Means End of Reliable & Affordable Power – Forever

The destruction of once reliable and affordable electricity supplies is so evidently deliberate, it can no longer be put down to ignorance, alone. Nothing but brazen ideology sits beneath the claim that we are a heartbeat away from a transition to an all wind and sun powered future. We are continually told that, putting aside […]

Blackout Blitz: Power Prices Rocket As London Struggles to Keep the Lights On

The lamps went out across Europe in 1914, 1939 and now they’re going out, again. This time, thanks to a maniacal obsession with intermittent wind and solar. Wishful thinking, combined with ideological zealotry has left Britain’s energy supplies in tatters. Germany is in the same boat, and for the same reasons. A few months from […]

Don’t Follow The Leader: How To Avoid Britain’s Wind & Solar Energy Disaster (Just Stop Now)

Britain’s power consumers (or what’s left of them) are brewing for a full-scale revolt. 12 months ago, the average annual energy bill was £1,400 ($2,400). Energy industry analyst Cornwall Insight forecasts that the British price cap will skyrocket and the average annual bill will reach £3,582 ($6,177) next month. By January, it predicts it will […]

The Great Wind Power Swindle: Households & Businesses Being Crushed By Record Power Bills

If wind power is cheap, why does every country obsessed with it suffer rocketing power prices? The game of smoke and mirrors played by renewable energy rent-seekers, has enabled them to avoid any critical scrutiny of the role heavily subsidised and chaotically intermittent wind and solar play in driving power prices into orbit. A decade of […]

Murder – Not Suicide: Europe’s Renewable Energy Policy Threatens Lives & Livelihoods

When it comes to Europe’s wind and solar disaster, ignorance is no longer a defence.  As STT has been pointing out for over a decade, the power pricing and supply calamity that follows any serious effort to rely on wind and solar is the only thing ‘inevitable’ about the so-called ‘transition’. What’s happened in Germany, […]

‘Ministry of Plenty’ Declares Weather-Driven Power Rationing All For The Greater Good

In Orwell’s 1984, the Ministry of Plenty was quick to herald any positive statistic, however bogus. Standards of living were always rising; as was the production of food, shoelaces and ill-fitting boots. Triumphant announcements were made about the chocolate ration increasing, simultaneously that the ration was, in fact, being reduced. An example of what the […]

Renewables Regret: Power-Starved Europeans Rue Their Governments’ Wind & Solar Obsession

Eating cold baked beans in the dark might not be everyone’s idea of fun, but power-starved Europeans are getting used to that kind of indignity. German households and businesses are already suffering Europe’s highest power prices; since Putin’s Ukrainian adventure began, German power prices have rocketed, further still, recently hitting a record 40 US cents per […]

Not So Cheap: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ Sends Britain’s Power Prices Into Orbit

Britain and Germany are the star players in Europe’s self-inflicted renewable energy calamity. Faced with power rationing and crippling power bills, Germans and Brits must be thanking their lucky stars that their governments had the wit and foresight to destroy their coal-fired power plants and give nuclear power the flick. Banning the exploitation of Britain’s […]
