    What are the UK's sources of electricity? Enough of the US grid supply is not very dynamically adjustable, so there is an excess capacity at night, plenty for EV charging for the foreseeable future.

    We currently have a similar issue. There is a table of sources at Fuel Mix Disclosure Data Table - BERR

    There are serious moves afoot to get renewables past 10% at the moment, though.
