ANOTHER new record, indicated wind power 8.16GW at present Smile

Think of the amount of gas not burnt and therefore still in store for future needs.

Last night another new record was set, indicated wind power reached 8.19GW, fairly briefly and remained at over 8GW for many hours.

At one point wind power exceeded natural gas, which may be a first.

This site is reporting over 9Gw wind at the moment, but I think this includes an estimate of unmetered turbines.

Interesting that this makes wind the largest single source of power, bigger than nuclear, and more than twice gas. Strangely, they are currently running coal.

I suspect this is a record low for gas consumption, with the exception of Christmas day.
