Can Britain prevent winter power cuts?
There's a cold snap on the way, and it's going to test the supply-side capacity of the UK electricity generation industry. Or are we likely to experience power cuts this winter?
Certainly the UK accounts for relatively little of Europe's stored gas, and we're more dependent upon fossil fuels to generate power than we ordinarily would at this time of year. And if the lights go out, it would represent a severe supply-side shock.
