Re: Modular reactors are the only real answer.
OK it's very cold but luckily it's windy
True at the moment, and probably an absolutely optimal national wind output.
But look at last Wednesday on Gridwatch - stuff all wind power right through the peak periods. A trawl through the data download shows a low of 369 MW of wind output in the afternoon whilst grid demand was above 50 GW. Lucky we've still got a few coal power plants that the government remain intent on closing.
