Daily Power Generation

Daily Power Generation

The top graph shows the last 24 days actual power generation as reported by the National Grid. This is the total amount of power supplied into the Grid for all sources, but excluding power that is generated and used on site. As power is not stored, this can also be read as the total demand for power.

The two pie charts breakdown the generation into Brown (Traditional sources like oil, gas and coal), Green (Solar, Biomass, etc), Blue (Nuclear) and other (Imports from Europe), and a more detailed breakdown by actual generation type. This is useful to see how "Green" the grid has been over the last 30 minutes.

The table and bar cahrt gives a detailed breakdown of the generation over the last 30 minutes.

All generation is measured in MWh.

Sheffield University working closely with National Grid, have derived an up to date estimate of the PV capacity deployed on the GB transmission network. Thier latest estimate puts the installed capacity at 12 GWp!
