I wonder how they are getting to that 10gw fig. The metered amount is https://www.bmreports.com/bmrs/?q=generation/windforcast/out-turn.  I think there must have been curtailment last night

This website tries to take into account the embedded wind generation as well, in much the same way it calculates the SolarPV output.

Just been reading on Twitter (@enappsys)  that overnight wind generation was being curtailed to the tune of 3GW being switched off to avoid swamping the grid, mainly in Scotland. 
The Bootstrap HVDC interconnector between Scotland and England will help that, can't be commissioned soon enough.

We are currently generating twice as much as can be used on the islands .....

The total renewable generation does not include the significant amount of micro generation (< 50 kW) installed on the network.
Do they mean >50kW?

I assume they mean a substantial amount of micro generation, all of which is individually less than 50kW, but as a whole adds up to a lot.

Very noticeable the last few days that offshore wind IBS much more effective.   Ireland had very low output from all onshore winds, even in the west.   It shows the need to build much more offshore and particularly well clear of sheltering land.
