Eolien français: Record d’inefficacité  

Credit:  Picardie Environnement Durable ~~

Faute de vent, les 2600 éoliennes industrielles françaises sont quasiment à l’arrêt depuis le 14 novembre : C’est l’équivalent d’une ville comme Paris sans électricité pendant 15 jours alors que les températures extérieures sont négatives !!!

Par temps très froid, le système anticyclonique ne génère pas de vent alors que la consommation électrique augmente sensiblement : Donc impossible de compter sur les éoliennes industrielles pourtant très coûteuses aux citoyens français.

Le 11 novembre, le Syndicat des Energies Renouvelables se vantait d’avoir battu son record de production électrique éolienne pendant quelques heures, mais la réalité de cette technologie est qu’elle est totalement inefficace la majorité du temps. Particulièrement quand l’électricité manque.

Without wind, the 2,600 industrial wind turbines in France have been virtually idle since November 14. That’s the equivalent of a city like Paris without electricity for 15 days – while the outside temperatures are negative!

In very cold weather, the anticyclonic system does not generate wind, while power consumption increases substantially: So it it is impossible to count on industrial wind turbines however costly to French citizens.

On November 11, the Union of Renewable Energies boasted of beating the record of wind power production for a few hours, but the reality of this technology is that it is totally ineffective most of the time. Especially when the electricity is needed.
