Gas supplies insufficient for a really cold winter - It's official

On Tuesday National grid revealed new calculations for Firm and Safety Monitors.

I am unsure and asking questions about the basis of the calculations. However, the calculations for Firm monitors indicated that the UK cannot now supply firm demand through a really cold winter. Luckily it looks like we may have an average winter rather than a cold one.

(see the link for the basis of this)

There remains a real problem that people are not importing gas to store it on warm days. Responsibilty for that lies with Ofgem and the DTI who permit this situation to remain.
