Selecting Yes will improve contrast between areas within your chosen year. Selecting No will use the same colour scale across all the years so is best for comparing over time.
These maps show electricity data from our Future Energy Scenarios. They show a subset of the data available in our regional breakdown of FES data file and are intended as a demonstrator to facilitate feedback. We plan to use this feedback to help us refine the visualisation of our data in the future.
The demands shown are the typical demands that could be expected in each region at time of national system peak demand. Individually each region may experience higher demands as factors such as local weather conditions and local engagement with distributed energy resources impact demands at a local level throughout the year.
Transmission demands (such as large industrial customers connected directly to the transmission network) and transmission connected generation are omitted from this visualisation. The transmission demands are available to download from our data portal whilst the transmission generation aggregated by fuel type are available in our FES data workbook.
If you have any comments, questions or feedback on our scenarios, please send them to FES@nationalgrideso.com.
This visualisation would not be possible without the prior work of others. We are grateful to the following organisations for sharing data and code under an open licence that allowed for re-use.
We are sharing our own data under an open licence on the ESO Data Portal.
