National Grid warns of even tighter winter margin for 2015/16

Over the past few years with power station closures the margin between the predicted peak demand from consumers and the total available generation has been continuing to narrow.  over the past two winters we have been very fortunate with very mild conditions which haven't driven the peak demand as high as was predicted.

At a press briefing, Cordi O’Hara, Director of Market Operation at National Grid has warned that this winter the margin is predicted at 1.2%.
