A tarnished record

RenewableUK is shouting from the rooftops about wind power setting a record on Monday with an output at one point of 17.6GW (gigawatts) (“New record set for wind power on bank holiday”, The Herald, 5 May). But what it is ignoring is that for the whole of the three days prior to this, the output of metered wind farms flatlined below 2GW. These wind farms have a total theoretical rating of 19.5GW.

In a 100 per cent renewables scenario we would have absolutely had rolling blackouts for these three days.
