Dog-Ate-My-Homework ‘Defence’: Wind Industry Blames Poor ‘Performance’ on the Weather

As Australia’s Energy Minister’s gathered for a panicked attempt to keep the subsidised renewable energy scam rolling for just that bit longer, the Wind Gods conspired to deflate their pumped-up rhetoric about Australia’s ‘inevitable transition’ to nature’s wonder fuels: sunshine and breezes. What’s depicted above, courtesy of Aneroid Energy, is the output from every wind […]

Wind Power Fiasco: Texas Faces Summer of Shortfalls, Rationing & Blackouts

Any state or country thinking about running on sunshine and breezes has enough disastrous examples to make them think twice. Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: massively subsidised, unreliable and intermittent wind power undercuts reliable coal-fired power plants; some of those plants close; power prices rocket; and grid managers suffer conniptions as they […]

Regrets: Fritz Vahrenholt – German RE Pioneer Demands End to Chaotic Wind Power Push

  If the tech savvy Germans can’t make wind and solar power work, no one can. The Germans love cobbling together endless, guttural syllables to create nouns longer than the Autobahn. ‘Energiewende’ roughly translates as ‘energy transition’, which Germans have taken to mean a new path with energy. Germans were told that instead of coal […]

Want Rocketing Power Prices & Grid Chaos? Wind Power’s Your Answer

One of the latest is that conventional generators, namely coal-fired power plants ‘fail all the time’. When presented with images like the one above from Aneroid Energy – depicting the output every wind turbine connected to […]

How Germany’s Renewable Energy Obsession Led to Rocketing Power Prices & Daily Blackouts

Germany’s obsession with sunshine and breezes, has cost it dearly: rocketing power prices and routine blackouts are now dished up daily in Deutschland. However, you’d never know it, if it was down to the mainstream media here. Germany has been long the poster child for renewables zealots in Australia, who keep telling us that the […]

Renewables Hoax: Australia’s Biggest Retailer, AGL ‘Gets Out of Coal’ By Spending $200m Fixing Coal-Fired Power Plant

  Renewables rent-seekers never talk about output, they only ever talk about capacity. Lines like the Windy Hill wind farm will power 30,000 homes, never come with the obvious caveat ‘sometimes’, and the rider that we can never say precisely ‘when’ that might be. Promoters of wind and solar, fixated on the hundreds of $billions thrown at […]

‘Saving’ the Planet from CO2 Gas Means Cheap & Reliable Nuclear Power or Nothing

Anyone still banging on about CO2 emissions in the electricity generation sector, ought to be banging on about nothing other than nuclear power. Nuclear power is the only, stand-alone generation source that can deliver reliable, affordable power without generating CO2 gas, in the process. The fact that politicians in this Country talk about anything but […]
