Wind & Solar Chaos Leaves Europe’s Power Grid On Brink of Total Collapse

Germany led the way, and others soon followed: erratically delivered wind and solar now dominates Europe’s power grid. Naturally enough, power prices have rocketed and grid managers are left to deal with the chaos delivered by sunset and/or calm weather. Rapid surges and/or collapses in voltage and frequency – consequent upon surges and collapses in […]

Hopelessly Helpless: German Wind Power Fails 93.3% Of The Time & Collapses in Minutes

  When the challenge is thrown at wind power proponents about its hopeless intermittency, like a drug addict, the answer is always “more”. More of the same, more turbines, more panels, more subsidies, more transmission network capacity, more non-existent mega batteries, well, just more. Germany is held up as the shining example of what our […]

Renewable Energy ‘Transition’: More Wind Power, Higher Prices, More Blackouts

The chaos that comes with intermittent wind and solar get serious in summer, when demand surges, the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in. This summer, the barbecue stopper will literally be another round of what’s euphemistically called “demand management”: Soviet era power rationing, an integral part of Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine […]

Blackouts Beckon: Calm Weather & Sunset Deliver Chaos in Renewables Obsessed Australia

  In renewables obsessed Australia these days, whenever the sun sets and/or calm weather sets, the talk inevitably turns to blackouts. Last summer, load shedding caught power consumers short in South Australia, Victoria and NSW. Energy hungry businesses such as aluminium smelters and even hospitals were forced to power down during run a scorching days […]

Summer Holiday-Hell: Power Consumers Face Staggering Bill Whenever Wind Power Goes AWOL

When RE zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to wind and solar, they never specify when. They say it’s ‘inevitable’, but always kick the can down the road when pressed about precisely when we’ll all be powered by nothing but sunshine and breezes. Perhaps it’s got something to do with sunset? Or maybe even the weather? […]

Dark Ages Deliverance: Australia’s Energy Minister Contracts Coal-Fired Power to Avoid More Mass Blackouts

Intermittent wind and solar guarantee power supply chaos and are a recipe for mass load shedding and blackouts: ask South Australians. While the Federal Energy Minister, Angus Taylor’s public focus has been on reducing power prices, in reality his ‘mission-critical’ is ensuring that there is enough reliable electricity generating capacity in the system to prevent […]

India Rumbles Wind Power as Fake Electricity: Output Collapses During Dead-Calm Monsoon

  It never takes them long to work out that wind power is the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. Eco-zealots have attempted to ram wind and solar power down the throats of Third World governments under the auspices of saving the planet and purportedly with the purpose of dragging millions out of […]
