Not at the moment. But we had better turn the French Interconnectors  off because France wants some

That's odd, because we're importing 2GW at the moment...
Ah, having looked at that link it seems there might be a problem with some of France's reactors in January.  That's tabloid journalism for you  facepalm

It may well have only been a glitch in the database system the other day, but there's a genuinely squeaky bum time couple of hours coming on the National Grid tonight apparently. Wind is rapidly disappearing, and margins are "tight".

I reckon we'll see almost all the gas and coal in full use this evening with most of the HVDCs importing as well.

Maybe have a few torches charged up and ready just in case!

Looks like a quiet week coming up on the wind front, coupled with temperatures dropping a bit. Still there might be an hour or two of week winter sun to tide us over Smiley
