I have just heard that Ireland (ESB) has recently refused to take any more wind generation capacity on to it's grid. If this is true it is soooo completely wrong.
I understand that balancing energy is not an easy task and that wind is a fluctuating source, but Ireland has only a tiny - tiny fraction of it's power from wind compared to some "civilised" countries!!!
In the meantine we are burning out precious peat bogs to generate power, and are discussing atomic power!! Is this madness or what???
