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.
