Panic ensued tonight after National Grid warned of possible blackouts tonight before canceling the notice.

The automated alert warned that due to ‘tight’ capacity, homes could lose power around 7pm tonight.

This means that less electricity may be generated than what the expected demand would be, resulting in power outages where those needs are not being met.

But ESO National Grid retracted the message, saying on Twitter at 3:15pm: ‘ESO has now retracted the Capacity Market message issued today at 2:33pm’.

It had previously said: ‘The ESO is confident that the electricity margins are sufficient for tonight.

“However, a capacity market message (CMN) has been triggered by the automated system.

CMN forecasts are issued automatically and are based only on public domain information.

“They don’t take into account all the factors our engineers are working on.”

There is a warning about the possibility that energy demand cannot be met through generation.

The British were concerned about possible blackouts, with one Twitter user tweeting: ‘National Grid has apparently announced it is struggling to cope with the amount of energy being used in the UK and that we will have a black-out from 7pm tonight can get out.

“Let’s hope it’s a bunch of b****** and doesn’t happen.”

Another tweeted, “Get your candles ready.”

The National Grid ESO website states: ‘A Capacity Market Notice is a signal four hours in advance that, taking into account additional operational reserve requirements, there may be less production available than the National Grid Electricity System Operator (ESO) expects to have. national electricity demand on the transmission system.

“The messages are intended as a signal that the risk of a System Stress Event in the UK electricity grid is greater than under normal circumstances.

“Capacity Market Notices are automatically communicated to this website by National Grid ESO systems and are issued at least four hours prior to the stated starting time.

“The main trigger identified by the UK government for a capacity market announcement to be issued to industry is where the level of available generation is within a 500MW threshold of the National Grid ESO requirement.”
