During the last few days of quiet weather, wind power has been virtually non existent. Yesterday, for instance, it averaged only 1.277 GW, and dipped as low as 0.524 GW:
Fortunately, CCGT stepped up to fill the gap (bottom graph), with help from nuclear, biomass and interconnector to France, which together averaged about 10 GW. However, these latter sources are pretty much maxed out.
No matter how much wind capacity we build, the equation still remains the same.
