“Wind and solar cannot even fill current gaps and a system run mainly on green power would fail to provide guaranteed supply over a winter fortnight, it says.
Power grid operator Amprion has said German networks came close to blackouts during settled and overcast conditions in January when renewable plants produced almost nothing.
Even environmental groups acknowledge the fossil fuel lobbies have a point, arguing there must be remedies to the problem of intermittent renewable supply.”
MEANWHILE, we know “unreliable” energy (wind/solar) is a giant, feel-good con, when ideologically green aggressive GERMANY has spent €1 Trillion Euros (of other people’s money) on useless Wind and Solar power, through the – now failed – “Energiewende” program, then only to undergo her biggest coal-fired power expansion in history…

News from Reuters:
FRANKFURT (Reuters) – Burning coal for power looks set to remain the backbone of Germany’s energy supply for decades yet, an apparent contrast to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ambitions for Europe’s biggest economy to be a role model in tackling climate change.

When people turn on wind power, it’s a one-way proposition: they never, ever worship these things again.
And when the convert was among those who first championed the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time, they don’t just quietly fall out of love, they tend to become the loudest critics of all; a bit like reformed smokers berating their old smoking buddies for lighting up.
One character who fits that mould is co-founder of the German Greens, Otto Georg Schily; who has just joined the growing throngs of Germans who now recognise the country’s maniacal obsession with massively subsidised wind and solar power as “an economic, social and ecological disaster”.

“Despite the Danish wind industry’s efforts to downplay it, the resistance exhibited by Danes has spread with disastrous results for the likes of Vestas.
In a clearly unhelpful turn of events for the wind industry in Denmark (and elsewhere for that matter), the growing fury of wind farm neighbours has rattled local governments and forced them into action.”
The sad part is that the “save the planet” lobby with their schizophrenic, ideologically driven push for unrealiable-energy has cost taxpayers, namely the poor, literally trillions of dollars of their hard-earned money to see the light.
Andrew Bolt nailed it commenting: “These are fake scares creating huge damage. Once again, the scaremongering is more dangerous than the scare.”
Denmark is the home of the original eco-fascist profiteers – Vestas – the struggling turbine maker – run by by a band of crooks – once exhorted the world to “Act on (its parallel universe version of the) Facts”: paying $millions to the Australian Greens and Trotskyite fronts like Getup! & Co – pitching lies like the one about the noise from V112s being just like the noise from a fridge 500m away (see our post here).
Whacked with costly lawsuits from wind farm neighbours – in one case a court awarding Dkr 500,000 (A$93,439) in compensation for the substantial reduction in the value of the plaintiffs’ home, caused by incessant turbine noise – the wind industry did its best to collude with a then pliant government to extricate itself from further liability (see our post here).
The Danish wind industry then resorted to the wholesale destruction of…

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
– Mahatma Gandhi
Far from being in love with these things – as the gullible press here would have us believe – the Germans that are forced to endure them, hate them just as much as everyone else in the World.
In this wrap up of a report from Die Welt by NoTricksZone, set-upon rural Germans have had – as we say ‘a gutful’ of the wind industry; and what comes with it.
Taking matters into their own gnarly, weathered hands, German farming communities are in open rebellion.
It’s an uprising that includes farmers blockading turbine construction sites with their tractors; and stealthy stormtroopers dropping a MET mast, used to measure wind speeds, that presage the threat of industrial wind turbine construction.
