Live Grid Data

Latest data from the National Grid.

All data, except solar, comes from the Balancing Mechanism Reporting System. Solar data comes from the Sheffield Solar project at the University of Sheffield. Data is updated at 30-minute intervals.

The page, including its method of retrieving and displaying data, is used as part of a year 2 undergraduate Energy Resources module at the University of Reading, which I convene and teach.

The renewables category is taken to include wind, solar, hydro (inc. pumped storage) and biomass. Nuclear is also considered a low carbon form of electricity generation.
