Scotland ‘powering ahead to decarbonize its grid’


From Energy Voice today:

‘A new National Grid energy forecasting tool has predicted that Scotland will have the lowest grid intensity in the UK today. National Grid said yesterday that it has worked in partnership with WWF and Environmental Defense Fund Europe to progress this innovative software, based on open access API. The software can now give businesses and homes a 48-hour forecast on Scotland’s future carbon emissions intensity.’

The software will enable us to tell when it is the best time, in terms of when it is cleanest and most cost-efficient, to turn on our devices or to charge our cars. Sam Gardner, acting director of WWF Scotland, said:

‘With its amazing natural resources, Scotland is powering ahead when it comes to decarbonizing its grid. Now Scottish consumers can play an even bigger role in this energy transition by using this new tool to make the most of clean power when it’s most abundant, helping to reduce costs and cut carbon pollution. This capability will become ever more important as we continue the push to electrify our heating and our cars.’

    What an excellent idea! Even if only a small portion of the population take an interest, I bet it’ll make a difference. AND it will give us another thing to discuss in addition to the weather 🙂
