Orkney Islands Electricity Demand

The graph shows the live demand for electricity as a proportion of the winter peak demand. The peak winter demand is a static figure that is reviewed annually by Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution (SHEPD).


Orkney Islands Renewable Generation

The graph also shows the total live Orkney Islands renewable generation as a proportion of the total renewable capacity. The generation can be greater than the live demand, which means that the excess will be exported to the Scottish Mainland. The additional renewable generation attributable to the Orkney ANM system is shown as a proportion of the total renewable generation. The total renewable generation does not include the significant amount of microgeneration (< 50 kW) installed on the network.
