Update on the failure of green energy policy in Europe. A warning for Australia!
Wind energy needs practically 100% backup hence it is virtually impossible to reduce CO2 until mass storage is available.
The European wind fleet averages 24% of capacity and much of the time operates below 10% of capacity.
Massive expenditure, more expensive power and less grid stability!
Nothing really new here for Cats but a really good review of the situation and something to circulate to your friends and relations to provide a comprehensive account of the economic impact, increased power prices, the failure to reduce emissions and the growing awareness that something has gone badly wrong.
