Seriously Shortchanged: Germans to Squander €4.6 Trillion on Intermittent Wind & Solar – Get 2.5% of Their Energy In Return

If the recent and idiotic obsession with intermittent wind and solar needed a pinup girl, it would have to be Germany. No country has squandered more treasure on giant windmills and an endless sea of solar panels. For all that wanton environmental destruction, Germans get a meagre 2.5% of their primary energy demand satisfied by […]

Germany’s Renewable Energy Fail: German CO2 Emissions 10 Times Higher than Nuclear-Powered France

The meme has it that wind and solar are all about slashing CO2 emissions, whereas that pathetic pair are just a colossal moneymaking scam. Apart from South Australia, no country other than Germany threw more at chaotically intermittent wind and solar. The results have been an utter debacle: Germans suffer the second highest power prices […]

Deutschland’s Death Spiral: Germany Can’t Control Runaway Cost of ‘Green’ Energy ‘Transition’

When energy policy is driven by ideology, rather than engineering, physics and economics, expect mixed results. Unmitigated disasters, like Australia’s wind and solar capital, South Australia are just the most obvious examples of what happens when lunatics take charge of the asylum. Germany is right up there, too. With rocketing power prices and a grid […]

Deutschland’s Delusion: Renewable Energy ‘Transition’ in Tatters – CO2 Targets Missed as Power Prices Spiral Out of Control

  Germany has a history of clinging to lost causes: its ‘inevitable’ transition to wind and solar is just the latest example. As Berlin was overrun by the Red Army in April 1945, Hitler and his loyal aides and commanders kidded themselves that the Reich might soon ride again. The Fuhrer and his newly wedded […]

Renewables Reckoning: German Business Being Throttled by Rocketing Power Prices

There’s something uncanny about the relationship between rocketing power prices and renewable energy: ask a German, Dane or South Australian. The consequences of Germany’s obsession with sunshine and breezes are starting to hit home, with a vengeance. Its economic backbone, referred to as the ‘Mittelstand’ (small to mid-size firms, either in family or private hands) […]
