" so to recharge all those vehicles from the grid would require more than doubling electricty production. "
Now factor in replacing all the gas/oil boilers with electric heating
Now factor in replacing as much industrial processing which consumes carbon with electric or other heating
You need to do a lot more than double it.
_IF_ you carpet the UK in windmills and put solar PV on every single rooftop, you can just about match the existing electrical production capacity. I'd like to see the greenies and renewables fiends explain where the rest is going to come from.
