 Comment

"Dinorwic" POWER STATION: pumped Storage Scheme When it was fully commissioned in 1984, Dinorwig Power Station was regarded as one of the world's most imaginative engineering and environmental project. The original purpose of the scheme, it is claimed, was to deal with the difficulty that National Grid would have had if the large numbers of nuclear power stations then planned had been built. These are technically and economically inflexible, ideally needing to run at full output all of the time and, effectively, storage capacity was needed for some of the night-time power when the demand for power dropped off. Electric night storage heaters and the Economy 7 tariff fulfill a similar purpose.[1]

Project Info
UK provides 1 billion dollars for Big Data, Space, Robotics and five ...
While UK consumption peaks at 60GW, the UK has generation capacity of 80GW but storage capacity of only 3GW (primarily from the single DINORWIG water system in Wales).

Why have we been so slow to harness power of the estuaries?
In our Economic Plan for Wales 1970, Prof Phil Williams and I included locations for estuarial barrages.At that time, the DINORWIG Pump-storage scheme was being planned.
