Wind power goes limp as British shiver

Wind Farms FAILED During British Cold Spell

Wind Farms FAILED During British Cold Spell

Wind farms in Britain generated practically no electricity during the recent cold spell, raising fresh concerns about whether they could be relied upon to meet the country's energy needs.

Despite high demand for electricity as people shivered at home over Christmas, most of the 3,000 wind turbines around Britain stood still due to a lack of wind.

The failure of wind farms to function at full tilt during December forced energy suppliers to rely on coal-fired power stations to keep the lights on - meaning more greenhouse gases were produced.
