014 - Distribution frequencies for different fuels in the UK

These charts show the number of five minute intervals each fuel spends at a certain level of output, with each bin showing the 'ceiling' of that range (either averaged to 100 or 1,000 megawatts, depending on the fuel type).

I've included frequency, demand and interconnection too. It's interesting to see the UK spending a lot of time importing electricity, and that frequency is more often lower than 50Hz, suggesting demand is slightly higher than generation, on average. But not by much.
