Chances are, that's well beyond Peak Oil. Britain, which has enough wind potential to power itself, could easily build 20 GW of wind by then, which at British conditions could generate at an average power of 6-8 GW, equaling just as many nuclear blocks... and with a more serious effort, and other renewables, multiples of that would be possible.
