You said earlier the solution was nuclear when do you think Hinkley Point will be ready to generate? At the present rate of progress not for quite sometime I suspect.
What is your short term solution to the problem?
Given that fossil fuel stations are reaching the end of their life we need a means of bridging the gap until nuclear or some other long term solution is reached.
Wind and solar is the simplest solution and the easiest to decommission when no longer needed.
Solar doesn't work after dark, wind blows somewhere day and night and both will help to fill the generating shortfall until we get some other form of generation up and running.
