Correlation between wind and output

June 9, 2016

The wind at present in Swansea is about 14 mph, that is quite a lot, but the contribution of wind turbines to the grid is still a negligible 0.33%.”

So the obvious solution is to build more turbines! By the way, don’t forget that when the wind-speed is doubled, the power-output goes up by eight times. We would explain the physics of that, but it would be beyond you.
