The Wind Blew Yesterday in UK … how much Wind Power Got Generated?

Yesterday, the remnants of a hurricane passed over parts of the UK. Bishop Hill, knowing that I have energy production data on my phone asked for how much wind power was generated yesterday during those high winds. I provided Bishop Hill a screen shot from the “GridCarbon” iPhone app which shows real-time numbers for energy generation by type.

If one turns the iPhone on its side, we can see a time series over the last 24 hours, wind is:

The grey area is “night-time” darkness.

My sense it’s about 10x normal for wind, but it’s just a hunch based on my recollection. At some point, I’d like to carve out some time and get back to the re-looking at updates to this and that.

Total power generation:

    Why do the grey areas (nighttime) apparently vary with generation and carbon intensity?

    Is the overall generation graph really the same shape as the BMReports graph?

    Looks the same to me. in any event, if different, I don’t know. Need to ask the owners of the app.
