Britain could be at risk of blackouts by next winter, the boss of one of the Big Six energy companies has warned, as old power plants are closed and have not yet been replaced.
Npower chief executive Paul Massara said Britain needs new energy infrastructure as the country’s amount of spare generation at peak times had fallen from 15 per cent to five per cent this year.
Mr Massara said the shortfall raised concerns over the possibility of blackouts as soon as next year.
