Incorrect statements on wind / nuclear power by BBC

Incorrect statements on wind / nuclear power by BBC

Dear BBC, I wrote in complaint on Sept 11th and the letter is reproduced below. I think it is worth explaining further in simple terms why Greatrex is wrong when he incorrectly states that “wind power only operates for about 36% of the time” and that this is a dangerously misleading statement. Wind power generation […]

Are large thermal stores and Combined Heat and Power District Heating (CHP) with District Heating (DH) pipes to deliver heat to buildings is more likely to be a better solution to de carbonising the building heating sector than relying on large-scale electricity storage of renewable or nuclear electricity (the “all electric solution”) delivered to buildings via cable?

One of the most intractable energy problems in Europe is how to deal with the heating load of buildings, (11 EJ/y), which is the largest user of primary energy and is presently met largely with gas. This heat load will not go away due to the expense of insulating the legacy buildings beyond quite modest […]
