The appearance in the media of articles like this is a warning sign in itself. The old days of plentiful coal stockpiles next to power stations are almost over, thanks to futile climate obsessions leading to bad energy policy.

The National Grid’s warning that three-hour planned blackouts may have to be implemented this winter has left many feeling anxious, says Sky News.

People use more energy to keep warm in winter.

And while Britain has a considerable gas supply in the North Sea, we lack space to store it, which means we have to import around 30% from Europe during periods of increased demand.

But with Europe depending on Russia for much of its gas supply, those European imports could be cut off over the war in Ukraine.

The Grid’s Electricity Systems Operator (ESO) is hoping to avoid blackouts by offering households money to reduce their energy use at peak times – but they still remain a possibility.

Here Sky News looks at how you can prepare and what to do if they happen.

Before the blackout

If blackouts are implemented this winter, people will be warned at least a day in advance, the Grid has said.

They are likely to be at peak times – between 4pm and 9pm or in the morning – and work on a rotation so not all areas of the country have their power cut at the same time.
