Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.

The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Slightly tangential but relevant to the wider subject of energy transition but last night was the first time ever the price of day ahead power in the UK went negative. Between 2:30am and 4:30am the combination of a storm and low demand meant that you could get paid for using electric. More offshore wind will make this more common. Great for charging your EV through the night in the autumn.
