Overhyped: Europe’s Largest RE Battery Can Power Britain For 60 Seconds When Wind Power Fails

The hyperbole that greets the announcement of another giant battery is like the toxic plume they give off when they explode in flames. And, as we recently reported, that’s an increasingly likely occurrence: Giant Batteries Bomb: Renewable Energy Storage Systems Literally Setting The World On Fire At a loss to deal with the hopeless and chaotic […]

Giant Batteries Bomb: Renewable Energy Storage Systems Literally Setting The World On Fire

  Renewable energy rent-seekers have been furiously peddling the myth that mega-batteries were a free and easy solution to the hopeless intermittency of weather-dependent wind and solar. The line goes that giant banks of lithium ion cells can store ‘free and abundant’ wind and solar power, whenever the sun is up and the wind is […]

Insane Storage Cost Mean Batteries No Solution to Chaotic Wind Power Delivery

As the mob rumbles the fact that wind and solar can’t replace conventional generators, RE zealots can only mutter about ‘mega-batteries’. Mass load shedding in Victoria and South Australia – following dramatic collapses in wind power output – left hundreds of thousands sweltering and fuming at just what’s been done to our once reliable and […]
