For instance Drax advise that 40% of UK electricity was from renewables on Christmas day with 75% (on average 9.4 GW) from wind. According to the Guardian in the Netherlands electric trains are 100% wind powered with one turbine providing enough power in one hour for a train to travel nearly 200km.
