Germany is replacing nukes with Renewable Power EASILY!
« on: July 17, 2014, 10:04:56 pm »
About those Nuclear Power Plants in Germany that many shills for dirty energy screamed (and still scream) that WE NEED NUKES and Germany is going to have to REPLACE THOSE NUKES WITH (gag!, screech!, moan) COAL!    ::)                    


SNIPPET from Amory Lovins article:

GERMANY's integrated policy network in action:

Quote
This integrated policy framework and the solid analysis behind it meant that the output lost when those eight reactors closed in 2011 was entirely replaced in the same year
59% by the 2011 growth of renewables,
  6% by more-efficient use, and
36% by temporarily reduced electricity exports.   Through 2012, Germany’s loss of 2010 nuclear output was 94% offset by renewable growth; through 2013, 108%. At this rate, renewable growth would replace Germany’s entire pre-Fukushima nuclear output by 2016.

How Opposite Energy Policies Turned The Fukushima Disaster Into A Loss For Japan And A Win For Germany 

Japan thinks of itself as famously poor in energy, but this national identity rests on a semantic confusion. Japan is indeed poor in fossil fuels        —but among all major industrial countries, it’s the richest in renewable energy like sun, wind, and geothermal. For example, Japan has nine times Germany’s renewable energy resources. Yet Japan makes about nine times less of its electricity from renewables (excluding hydropower) than Germany does. 

That’s not because Japan has inferior engineers or weaker industries, but only because Japan’s government allows its powerful allies—regional utility monopolies—to protect their profits by blocking competitors.  >:(  Since there’s no mandatory wholesale power market, only about 1% of power is traded, and utilities own almost all the wires and power plants and hence can decide whom they will allow to compete against their own assets, the vibrant independent power sector has only a 2.3% market share; under real competition it would take most of the rest. These conditions have caused an extraordinary divergence between Japan’s and Germany’s electricity outcomes.

Expect pro-nukers and fossil fuelers to claim that the U.S. is not Germany or Japan so, uh, that PROVES we DO NEED NUKES and anybody that says different does not understand "supply and demand" and is stupid, math challenged, ignorant and most of all NOT thinking "profitably"! 



Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
