Why Big Batteries Can’t Cure Wind & Solar’s Hopeless Intermittency

Politicos and the MSM are wedded to the myth that mega-batteries are all we need to overcome the chaotic delivery of wind and solar. The addition of which, we are told, is both imminent and cost-free. No country on earth has been able to crack the cost-effective grid-scale storage electricity. The laws of physics are […]

Tesla’s Incendiary Mega-Batteries: The Bigger They Come, The Longer They Burn

Giant lithium-ion batteries are said to be the saviour of intermittent wind and solar. But their pesky habit of exploding into toxic fireballs suggests that they’re not really part of the ‘inevitable transition’ team, after all. ‘Bombs’ are designed to store and quickly release copious amounts of energy, so are the mega-batteries being rolled out […]

The Big Battery Myth: Why Battery Storage Can’t Save Intermittent Wind & Solar

For almost a century, electricity generation and distribution were treated as a tightly integrated system: it was designed and built as one, and is meant to operate as designed. However, the chaotic delivery of wind and solar have all but trashed the electricity generation and delivery system, as we know it. Germany, California and South […]

Renewable Storage Myth Busted: Elon Musk’s Great Battery Conjob Exposed

We’re now told the solution to the chaos delivered by wind and solar is giant lithium-ion batteries, of the kind peddled by Elon Musk. The reefer-smoking, Californian carpetbagger managed to offload one unit in wind power obsessed, South Australia, collected $150 million, and was never seen again. Here’s Liberal MP, Craig Kelly explaining just how […]
