German Experts Warn Of Grid Instability…”Conventional Power Plants Needed For A Long Time To Come”

Germany’s massive, subsidized expansion of electricity generation from renewable sources has squeezed out conventional generation units out of the market. Two experts warn of growing grid instability.

Quo Vadis, Grid Stability?

Original article at Die kalte Sonne

The conclusion of the two is very alarming. Here, too, not a word about “storage facilities galore. Here, reality clashes with the wishful thinking of some green energy protagonists who think there is enough storage and that all that needs to be done is to change the “mindset,” as Patrick Graichen put it.

The continued expansion of highly volatile renewable energy sources and the further displacement of more conventional generation units from the market are making the power grid increasingly sensitive to weather-related fluctuations. Unusual weather phenomena such as dark doldrums pose significant challenges to the security and stability of supply to the power grid. The largely intermittent output of solar and wind farms does not correlate with fluctuations in electricity demand.

The excess supply of renewable energy should be buffered during periods of low electricity demand, and the stored capacity should be injected back into the grid during periods of high electricity demand when fewer renewable sources are available. However, large battery energy storage systems, which have been promisingly announced, are still not on the horizon due to their low capacity and maturity, as well as their exorbitantly high cost of deployment.”

At this point, at the latest, some people’s ears should be ringing:

As long as economic energy storage systems are not established, even proponents of the current direction of Germany’s energy transition will have to admit that reliable conventional power plants will be needed for a long time to come.”

This article is also an urgent reading recommendation for politicians and experts who like to be interviewed.

The authors also conclude:

The importance of nuclear power plants for security of supply in base-load operation and their and their ability to operate the grid in parallel with renewable renewable energies have been demonstrated. The nuclear power plants appear to be well suited for the energy made to achieve the future goal of carbon-free power generation. However, the Atomic Energy Act foresees an early end to nuclear power generation by the end of 2022.”

So without nuclear power in Germany, grid stability problems are a future certainty.

    I know it is a long way from Germany to Belarus and Russia, but it would be wise to chase all the green folks east and make Germany a functioning nation.

    Anyone with arithmetic skills can show the inability of wind, solar, and batteries to fail to support the basic needs of society.
    All the issues have appeared here at NTZ, repeatedly. It is good to see public exposure catching up.

    I mean, really, who could have seen that coming. Completely unpredictable.

    What? Germany needs a reliable electricity supply? Not fantasy and unreliable fantasies?
    Give the man the NSS Award. (No Sh*t Sherlock).

    ‚ÄĚ As long as economic energy storage systems are not established,‚Ķ‚ÄĚ

    As long as there’s insufficient electricity for consumers, where do they think the electricity for storage will come from? Even if storage capacity is sufficient, what good is it if there’s nothing to put into it?

    They pile fantasy upon fantasy, and haven’t a clue how foolish they sound. I guess if a man is payed to dream, he’s not about to risk his livelihood by waking up.

    Cool air from the north is now flowing into Germany. Someone who thinks CO2 will warm him in the fall and winter may be disappointed. At the North Pole, the average temperature is already below 0 C.

    These two experts are clearly living in LaLaLand… As if any of the scoundrels/fraudsters/terrorists in the german government care about any of this.

    BTW, the green house effect does not exit:
    “The atmospheric greenhouse effect, an idea that many authors trace back to the traditional works of Fourier (1824), Tyndall (1861), and Arrhenius (1896), and which is still supported in global climatology, essentially describes a fictitious mechanism, in which a planetary atmosphere acts as a heat pump driven by an environment that is radiatively interacting with but radiatively equilibrated to the atmospheric system. According to the second law of thermodynamics such a planetary machine can never exist.”

    Russia pulls plug on reliable backup, by reducing flow of reliable energy to Germany.
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/08/russian-oil-giant-shuts-down-natural-gas-pipeline-to-germany-as-energy-prices-soar/

    Danes and Germans respond by pledging to increase unreliable grid-breaking energy sources.

    That’ll teach those Russians to keep their noses out of Western interference in Russian’s corrupt disruption of the smooth operation of lucrative Western-Ukrainian corruption.
