At the moment wind power is the biggest contributor at 12.95 GW, solar is 2.55 GW. Nuclear is 5.25 GW.

I don't dispute that, it's the subsides need to be taken away to show the true cost of generation. It's the subsidies that increase the costs.

Hi Pete,

I was only pointing out that it's oil & gas that has rocketed in price. As far as I'm aware wind and sunshine are still free!

I'm involved in a small scale hydro project and we're locked into a contract which sets the price of the electricity we generate far below the current (no pun intended) market price.

Cheers.
