COUNCILLOR Audrey Doig (Letters, November 30) wants Britain to be powered
by batteries when there’s no sun and insufficient wind. The world’s biggest
battery facility is Gateway in California, which can provide 250 MWh
(megawatt hours) of energy if it’s fully charged at the time it’s needed.
This sounds a lot until you see that the UK’s total final energy
consumption is 1,741,000,000 MWh annually. So Gateway could power us for
4.5 seconds.
