Re: Water source heat pump

My recollection is that the Environment Agency regard them as being undesirable for a variety of reasons. Not the least because the angling lobby pretty much control the EA in these matters.

Re: Musk endeavours

Be fair, dspp, unless I'm mistaken you are happy to drive an old economy car or a basic rental car.

Re: Large scale UK power cuts

He is making the assumption that the embedded only dropped out due to RoCoF protections firing. The data does not exist in the public domain to support that, though I am not saying I am entirely disagreeing as it is the most likely hypothesis for most of the embedded dropouts. What is ironic about ...

Indeed VW / VAG are one of the more likely survivors, ironically courtesy of dieselgate. However they do have a problem and that chart illustrates it, and everyone shares the same problem.

Re: Large scale UK power cuts

I remain confused. Was there a loss of supply on those parts of the distribution network attached to embedded generation - and consequently they tripped - that's what I would call loss of mains. Or was it simply transient voltage disturbances that caused the trips? Are the embedded generators too s...
