A new innovative app that allows people to find out the energy mix in the UK in real time has been launched.
Called iGrid UK, it allows users to access multiple sources of electricity market information, giving them the most up to date statistics on the move. It also shows when National Grid is calling in energy reserves to ensure security of supply.
Another function it provides is electricity demand in the UK while also showing the three UK highest winter peak demands, also known as ‘The Triads’.
Tim Emrich, Chief Operating Officer at UK Power Reserve, which developed the app said: “As well as being very useful to our operations the app can also be utilised by others involved in the UK power industry, giving easy access in one place to the wealth of information that is so crucial to ensuring that the country gets the power it needs.”
