Europe Squanders €1.1 trillion on Wind & Solar: But Gets Only 4% of its Power from Sun & Wind

NOVELTY, taxpayer funded, unreliable, green-energy insanity update…

“The actual measured output by 2014 from data supplied by the Renewables Industry has been 38 Gigawatts or 3.8% of Europe’s electricity requirement, at a capacity factor of ~18% overall.”

AND don’t forget this, “the [3.8%] Renewable [unreliable] Energy contribution to the electricity supply grid is inevitably erratic, intermittent and non-dispatchable.”

That ultimately means, the more “unreliable” energy sources (wind/solar) that are setup (with other people’s money), the more ‘reliable’ fossil fuel plants are needed to be setup to support and stabilise the grid! Inevitably creating an overall “CO2” increase!? Not the best outcome if “CO2” is your evil-jam!

Adding More Solar And Wind Power ‘Doubles’ CO2 Emissions

Unreliable, un-green energy – what a con, what a disaster, what a sick joke.

STOP THESE THINGS

This piece was published last year, but the message is so stark it’s well-worth revisiting. Despite spending €1,100,000,000,000 on large-scale wind and solar generation, the amount of power being actually delivered in return is risible:

The actual measured output by 2014 from data supplied by the Renewables Industry has been 38 Gigawatts or 3.8% of Europe’s electricity requirement, at a capacity factor of ~18% overall.

Those numbers could, if we were a tad cynical, have something to do with pesky sunsets and/or the vagaries of the weather.

By 2014 European Union countries had invested approximately €1.1 trillion, €1,100,000,000,000, in large scale Renewable Energy installations.

This has provided a nominal nameplate electrical generating capacity of about 216 Gigawatts, or nominally about ~22% of the total European generation needs of about 1000 Gigawatts.

The actual measured output by 2014 from data supplied…
