Major blackout in Pakistan and unprecedented grid collapse in Europe in January 2021.

A near power grid outbreak on January 8, 2021 cut Europe’s power grid into a south-eastern and a north-western part for about an hour was described as one of the most critical near-blackout situations since the region’s last major blackout in 2006.

A day after, on January 9, 2021, Pakistan and most of its 210 millions inhabitants were plunged into darkness during several hours. This was Pakistan’s second major power breakdown since May 2018, when the country remained without electricity for more than nine hours.

Europe close to power grid blackout

A disturbance in the synchronised European high-voltage power grid on Friday, 8 January 2021, resulted in a separation of European grid regions.

The incident, described as one of the most critical near-blackout situations since the region’s last major blackout in 2006, happened after a sudden drop in frequency of around 0.25 Hertz (Hz) in south-eastern Europe.

As a result, the synchronised European grid was split into a south-eastern and a north-western part for about an hour and grid operators had to initiate contracted load shedding in Italy and France to keep the grid stable.

In some regions, sensitive machinery automatically stopped working.

Although the actual cause of the near collapse remains unclear, officials blame France that is unable to cope with the current cold weather.

Britain also seemed to have problems generating enough electricity for the current winter demand.

German press reports about cold temperature and of not enough nuclear power online (44 of 56 reactors are online, next week only 43) in France because of maintenance backlogs due to Corona.

Pakistan plunged into darkness

A day after Europe, on January 9, 2021, a power outage struck almost all of Pakistan, leaving around 200 million people without electrical supply.

The blackout was due to a frequency drop resulted from a “fault” at Guddu, in southern Pakistan, at 11:41 p.m. local time on Saturday (6:41 p.m. GMT), which tripped the system and caused power plants to shut down.

The blackout lasted about 18 hours.

According to officials, the record-breaking grid collapse had been caused by “an engineering fault,” although experts are now trying to determine the precise details of what happened as well as the exact location of the fault.

Meanwhile, on January 10, 2021, outages related to heavy snowfall were experienced across eastern Texas, which left over 100k customers without electrical power.

Yes, in Pakistan and Europe, the official causes (weather and human fault) of the catastrophic blackouts seem suspicious to me. Is there something more we don’t know?

  1. I use solar power up in the mountains. Once you quit tv, and power draining wastefulness, it’s alright. Batteries are spendy. So it’s a push, economically speaking.

    Just remember—if cities blackout, then criminality will occur.

    Solar is good for most things. Hard to run 2,000 watts though. You have to be mindful. For example, you dont want a well pump cycling agricultural water, and run an 8,000 a/c unit simultaneously.
    There are now solar a/c units, but the expense is hefty. Those DeWalt generators can power a home too, in case it is overcast with solar panels not inverting power. You can run 1500 watts, no problemo.

    I also decided to electrify the razor wire fence. Doesn’t use much power according to my electrical worker. 120 volts.
    😄

    * If you are tied to grid, then expect blackouts in socialist/communist run countries.
    * Expect to wait for medical treatment too. You probably will die first.

  2. There are no “good” men in this Kali Yuga dharma ending age.

    Its all a show unfortunately.

    They will still rape and kill behind our backs.
