Interconnects are all very good if you ignore the transmission loss, but it also extends our power production vulnerability massively.
If the connected countries have any problems they'll turn us off first and visa versa.
Doooooom!

That's why there's 15 of them all to different markets.

Anyway - what's your alternative @Job - considering your post that gas isn't reliable.

Answer please. All you do is come on here and say "nope" and all your "nopes" have been addressed.

To power the entire countrys energy needs, we would need all the turbines in the world just for the UK and every lake turned into hydro storage.

So we are just looking at a bit of the electricity only and having to top it up with conventional...just for homes.

We are still going to need massive amounts of energy to run the country.
Hydrogen is viable but yet to be tested at that immense scale.

If no fossil then nuclear is the only option.

OK. So basically it all sums up as: you can't read.

Scotland already produces more than double the annual electricity requirement in just six months from wind power alone. The rest of Blighty will be on course for being a net exporter of electricity from renewables.

A small amount of nuclear + european wide renewables. Job jobbed.

All your doom are belong to wind. Your ongoing pessimism is just this.

I said total energy needs.

This is an issue for all this rhetoric, people act like turbines power everything.
You want to reduce co2 right?
Well building thousands of turbines just to power homes for a third of the year aint going to do jack shit.

Thats good, but a max 5% improvement doesnt sound like changing the world as we know it.

Not needing batteries, so we are breaking the laws of physics as well.

European grid.

For, like the billionth time. What part of it are you struggling to understand?

Trusting other countries?
He's on about batteries again. And lack of capacity. Alongside all the other stuff that maybe in 2012 was a worry - but in 2020 is clearly not even something we should care about any more (and has been shown to be so).

We've solved the energy thing. With wind and cooperation.
