How much of the recent reduction in UK electricity demand is down to efficiency gains and how much to deindustrialisation (forced or otherwise)?

Most of the apparent reduction in demand is due to most land based wind farms 100% of all solar panels and 'farms' being subtracted out. None of these are metered by the national grid. They appear instead as a reduction in demand.

Yes, 100% of solar, but I thought only about 50% of onshore wind capacity was un-metered. That was my understanding of the situation a few years ago anyway. I would have thought that LED lighting will have reduced demand by maybe a couple of GW? >

> I still think GB demand will hit at least 55GW if we have a really extreme cold spell like we did in winter 2009-10 and again in Feb 2011.
