Events like cold snaps and heat waves drive up energy demand according to how much air conditioning or heating we need. But UK electricity consumption averages out at around 50GW. Even if we used the biggest turbines available, that’d work out at over 7000 to keep the country going. With 50 turbines per wind farm, we would need room for 140 massive sites. And we’d have to hope for plenty of windy weather.
