Demand for winter gas set to surge as National Grid prepares for cold weather

first_img BRITAIN’S winter gas demand is expected to rise by 3.8 per cent compared with last winter as more gas is forecast to be used for power generation, National Grid said yesterday. In the power sector, peak demand levels are expected to be slightly lower than last year’s at 57.7 gigawatts (GW), while available power generation is expected to reach 66.3 GW, the grid operator said in its final winter outlook report. “Gas and electricity demand is manageable and should be met even in a very cold winter,” National Grid said in a statement. Gas demand for power generation this winter will be 1bn cubic metres (bcm) higher than the weather-corrected estimate for last year at 17.6 bcm. Even though no clear forecast has been made as to which fuel will be this winter’s baseload resource, gas is expected to be the fuel of choice over the first two winter months. National Grid also reviewed its seasonal weather assumptions following last year’s cold winter. The grid operator also said that installed power production capacity could rise to 83 GW by the end of the winter. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL Thursday 7 October 2010 7:29 pm Demand for winter gas set to surge as National Grid prepares for cold weather center_img More From Our Partners Matt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.comFeds seized 18 devices from Rudy Giuliani and his employees in April raidnypost.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.com KCS-content whatsapp Share Video Carousel – cityam_native_carousel – 426 00:00/00:50 LIVERead More Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryUndoTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastUndoNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyUndoMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailUndoSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesUndoBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItUndoBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeUndomoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comUndoMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesUndolast_img
