Brass Monkey Britain - part 1,863

You may have noticed there's a cold snap on, so here's my (occasional) audit of which energy source is providing power to British homes and businesses.
During the past five days, coal has contributed an average of 44% of the UK's energy, while wind (it never blows when you need it, but we have 2,800 turbines just in case!) supplied 0.98%. Who'd have thought it?
