Australian Daily Wind Power Generation Data – Tuesday 7 June 2022

Must thank Anton for years of day in, day out coverage of AU UNreliable-energy output data. Exposing the daily follies of the very unreliable energy source that has systematically decimated Western industry, jobs and psyche over the past decade or so.

Bravo and cheers, Anton.

Read all to see just how troublesome you and your “children’s, children’s” future actually is under big govt ‘green’, centrally-planned frameworks…

This Post details the daily wind power generation data for the AEMO coverage area in Australia. For the background information, refer to the Introductory Post at this link.

Each image is shown here at a smaller size to fit on the page alongside the data for that day. If you click on each image, it will open on a new page and at a larger size so you can better see the detail.

Note also that on some days, there will be a scale change for the main wind power image, and that even though images may look similar in shape for the power generation black line on the graph when compared to other days, that scale (the total power shown on the left hand vertical axis) has been changed to show the graph at a larger size to better fit the image for that…

    Thanks for the kind words.

    There’s a really odd thing which happened with all of this.
    All along, and here I mean throughout the whole number of years of doing this, I kept thinking that with the improvement in technology which happens with everything, then it would be the case that the wind technology would just get better, and what would happen would be that they would solve that intermittency problem to some degree, (the wind being the wind that is) or find a way around it that would improve that Capacity Factor.
    That has just NOT happened.

    Right from the start of wind power generation starting to make large inroads into Australia, that Capacity Factor (CF) was stuck at 30%, and keep in mind here that when I first started looking at wind data. there were other Countries where the ‘fleet’ of wind plants had lower CF figures than we had here in Australia. (Germany down as low as 20% to 25% tops)

    What HAS happened is that the 30% CF figure has stayed at 30% all along, and it’s only varied by half a percent up or down in all these five years now of daily data collection.
    Each new group of plants added to the grid have not improved that 30% figure at all, and here, that Nameplate total for ALL wind here in Australia has increased by a large amount across the years, and that CF number has just stayed at 30%.

    And now, with a new pro renewables pro wind power Government in power here in Australia, that Nameplate will probably increase even further, and people will again not look at the facts of history which show just how poorly wind power actually performs, and just press ahead with more and more of this failure that wind power actually is. If ANYTHING else performed as poorly as wind generation, it would be laughed out of existence.

    Again, thanks for the kind words.

      Hi Tony,

      While it may be the most overused cliché of all time, “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”, it certainly fits well with 110% subsidised windmills and mirrors that no matter how many you install into the system, Capacity Factor (CF) will not move above 30%.

      In fact, the more windmills and mirrors injected into the system, the more fossil fuels are required as backup.

      A paper by Marques et al. (2018) found that “[A]s RES [renewable energy sources] increases, the expected decreasing tendency in the installed capacity of electricity generation from fossil fuels has not been found.” (Marques et al., 2018. pp. 257-265). The abstract summarises, “One would expect the larger penetration of renewable energies to provoke a substitution effect of fossil fuels by renewable sources, in the electricity generation mix. However, this effect is far from evident in the literature” (Marques et al., 2018. pp. 257-265).

      Ergo, increasing UNrelibales actually increases fossil fuel proliferation, and that’s just for installed backup. That does not include the immense and additional amount of fossil fuels required to mine, manufacture, install and service UNreliables. Now that really is the definition of ‘insanity’, if you believe that more fossil fuels are a bad thing.

      And, it’s no wonder why fossil fuel companies are spruiking UNrelaibels. They can, quite literally, double their profits.


      Thanks again for your tireless work, Tony.
