Last quarter, wind and solar together generated enough electricity to surpass nuclear’s contribution to the grid, but continued wind development and strong conditions helped push wind over nuclear all on its lonesome. Similarly, researchers from Imperial College London also concluded that wind curtailment during the first quarter fell by two-thirds. New transmission links, including the recently completed Western HVDC Link between Scotland and Wales, have reduced the amount of wind energy lost and, based on rudimentary guesses, saved National Grid around £9 million per month throughout the first quarter in absent constraint payments.
