Wow, how can this happen? Government asleep at the wheels?

“ The U.K.’s energy crisis worsened as a fire shut down a major cable bringing power from France, adding to the risk of economic disruption as Britain heads into winter.

Gas and power prices jumped as the U.K. grid operator said the cable will be out for at least a month. Firefighters battling the blaze at a converter station since the middle of the night said it will take several more hours to put out.

The timing couldn’t be worse: Britain is already struggling with shortages, with gas and power prices breaking records day after day. The energy crunch is fueling concerns about inflation and a potential hit to businesses just as the economy emerges from the worst impact of the pandemic.

“This is a major event,” said Phil Hewitt, executive director at Enappsys Ltd., a consultant.”

Is there a plan here? Has GB stopped sourcing natural gas because someday it, hopefully, be replaced by renewables?

While I firmly believe in the need to transition to renewable energy, it seems to me that it would be wise to maintain your energy industries until you are there. Redundancies seem required!
