When the wind doesn't blow (BBC)

The BBC has an interesting article today on the inefficiency of wind farms and the particular difficulties faced in the UK. You will have read similar thoughts right here so I am pleased that the BBC is following a good example!

As usual with the BBC, the photo's caption is somewhat misleading - if wind turbines only operate 40% of the time, how can they be the "answer to Britain's energy demands"?
