As we noted in the Generator Report Card, the reason that the supply side of the energy sector exists is to supply the electrical energy required by energy users, such that they can use that energy to create the thing (or that piece of ‘work’) that they ultimately value. It stands to reason that a proper understanding of the energy sector means understanding electricity demand.
In April 2018 we published this detailed explainer about different aspects of electricity demand, particularly focusing on how it’s measured and understood in real time at a wholesale level.
