Wind farms are failing to produce electricity when the temperatures drop, costing billions of pounds and potentially leading to blackouts, leading industrialists warned this week.
They believe that the Government will be forced to build emergency back-up power plants – paid for by companies and consumers – to compensate for the lack of energy being provided by wind farms.
The warnings came after new figures showed that during the latest cold snap wind turbines produced less than 2% of the nation’s electricity.
