On this page, you can see a live simulation of the MyGridGB Manifesto. This shows the British electricity supply should my manifesto have been implemented and given recent weather patterns and recent electricity demand.

A Manifesto for a Low Carbon Electricity Supply

The key to the manifesto is that it uses wind, solar and energy storage to harness favourable whether when it is there. Gas is only used when it is dark, there is no wind and the energy storage is depleted. The manifesto works because using wind and solar drives down carbon emissions sufficiently to permit some use of gas.

Over the last 7 days  Wed 16 August 2017 to Wed 23 August 2017

Our electricity supply over the last 7 days if Britain had implemented the Manifesto. It can be seen that there is a large amount of wind and solar being generated relative to our demand. This results in dramatic cuts in carbon emissions.

The impact of the manifesto on carbon emissions from electricity over the previous 7 days is shown below.

Over the last 28 days from Wed 26 July 2017 to Wed 23 August 2017

Our electricity supply over the last 28 days if Britain had implemented the Manifesto. The same pattern emerges of higher wind and solar generation, and over a longer scale, the reduced carbon emissions are confirmed. Note that the target of emitting less than 100gCO/kWh is achieved over 28 days.

The impact of the manifesto on carbon emissions from electricity over the previous 28 days is shown below.

Over the last 150 days from Sun 26 March 2017 to Wed 23 August 2017

The impact of the manifesto on carbon emissions from electricity over the previous 150 days is shown below. Over the long term the manifesto works. If one week or one month doesn’t meet the carbon target that is ok, as long as on average we are producing low carbon electricity over the year.
