The Week of The Beast Unplugged – Euan Mearns

An excellent post in Energy Matters today:

http://euanmearns.com/the-week-of-the-beast-unplugged/

which concludes:

There are two main objectives of this post 1) to document the precarious state of the UK grid during late February and early March 2018 when easterly winds brought Siberia to Europe and the UK. All dispatchable sources of electricity were running flat out, we were running short of gas and asking industrial suppliers to reduce consumption.  And 2) to raise the question about how the UK grid could stay afloat without the current 10.6 GW of coal that the UK government proposes to close down by 2022-2025?

Quite.
