GMB union say figures show UK needs nuclear and gas-powered energy plants | Daily Mail Online

GMB union say figures show UK needs nuclear and gas-powered energy plants | Daily Mail Online: Wind turbines produced just 10 per cent of their energy capacity during almost a fortnight of the last three months, it was claimed yesterday.�

Monitors tracking the energy generated from Britain's wind farms found 12 days when output dropped to 10 per cent of capacity or less, according to the GMB union.

It said its 'wind watch' figures demonstrated that Britain could not rely on renewable energy and needed nuclear or gas-powered plants to ensure its supply.
