I’m Dr Grant Wilson, a research associate within the Environmental and Energy Engineering group, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield. I am passionate about energy data visualisation and public engagement.

This website is the result of many months of development, and aims to provide energy data for Great Britain in a simple graphical and tabular form (initially electrical data). This is a personal project, it is linked to my research and I’ve also found it to be a helpful teaching resource. I would be delighted if others found the charts to be helpful too.

I strongly believe that the debate surrounding Great Britain’s energy transition is supported by better access to historical energy data. There are several websites and apps that already do this in different ways – and my aim is that this website will add to the energy data landscape by having an historical overview based around a weekly and possibly monthly timeframe.

The underlying data are publicly available from National Grid’s and Elexon’s websites.
