Intermittency of UK wind power generation 2013 and 2014

Derek Partington has analysed the recorded output of UK wind turbines for 2013 and 2014, following his previous analysis of the situation in 2011 and 2012. Despite a signifcant increase in nominal generating capacity, the intrinsic intermittency of wind energy means that no improvement in overall capacity factor or energy security. Here you can find the report and an Appendix with the monthly data.
