So The French Are Self Sufficient In Elecy Hey

The last link is the interesting one and the shipments of elecy to france are the last graph on the page, but it also shows how all our lovely wind farms are perfroming.

But it seems like the much vaunted French nukes are not working to well, they seem to have 6 missing in action at the moment, perhaps they have run away from the protestors.

Be good for the balance of payments for this month and quite frankly I hope we stuff em on the price.

Wind farms? You're kidding right, out of my office window where I've been working for the past 1.5 months I have yet to see one of the wind turbines turn even once!

Yep over the past 24 hours the windfarms have generated 6299 MWh of elecy.

Some must be turning somewhere in the UK.

I wonder if Ralph is extracting the urine from PickItDown, who a few months ago found a chart showing a day with no wind in the UK, and kept creating threads about it for ages, arguing that it was definite proof that wind power was a scam and should immediately be banned for our own good. Or something like that.

Arguing with him about concepts such as "diverse energy supplies" were an exercise in futility :)

The sprawling windfarms on the coast of Devon and Cornwall with their mighty big wing turbines were going at a fair clap, but they're a better secondary source of power than coal plants.

We probably don't have much choice now that our electricity generation and distribution is handled by those thoroughly British blighters like err.... Electricity De France!

AFP The French are importing electricity but this is due to the massive strikes that are going on over here at the moment its got nothing to do with there power stations that are not working

The BBC don't like the word 'strike' a word that was long forgotten about in the UK

Worse still would be a 'national strike' this does not exist today in the UK but not over here in France

What ever happened to the Bulldog nothing more than a kitten today in the eyes of the French

And I was thinking that the French owned our electrical generation plants! :unsure:

The French are probably exporting to Benelux, Germany, Italy and Spain at the same time.

It's called a grid.

Very efficient that, sending electricity from northern Scotland all the way to southern Europe. I wonder how few % actually make it?

Eventhough I was a little tongue in cheek against our Gallic chums.

The real question is what part of the French generating capacity have the strikers succeeded in shutting down?

Who knows the mix of the generating capacity in France? Are they all nuke or is there gas, coal or oil?

Seeing as you can not be bothered to read the article before posting.

The quote in the bbc article was that "France is searching Europe for anybody with spare capacity to import to france." or something close to those words.

How has the UK fallen so far behind?

By wasting all its resources on producing a world cup winning team and cooking good food. Chumps.

This is the UK page

About 19% from nuclear in the UK.

1% imported from France (nuclear).

Electricity production/consumption down due to the recession.

What! Sitting indoors watching a 50 inch screen all day? :huh:
