As reported by The Energyst National Grid is confident it has secured sufficient reserve capacity for the coming winter.
However there are warnings about future outlook for the coming years. National Grid says margins will be tight over the next few years but is still confident it has the tools to deal with even the toughest winter conditions.
Lord Redesdale on the other hand predicts blackouts and price rises of up-to 25% over the next year.
He says we waist 40% of the energy we use but would need to halve that to bring us below the point where we are going to have brownouts or blackouts.
While time has come for everyone to invest time and money in energy efficiency we would also recommend longer term electricity contract to protect you from likely price rises.
