This dataset was produced for an analysis of the impacts of short-term marginal changes in demand and wind power on greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) on the grid in Great Britain. It was derived from data published in the BMRA data archive by Elexon. It includes: the total power output and GHG emissions from coal-fired and combined-cycle gas turbine power stations, which was calculated for each individual power station (or BM unit) and then aggregated for the whole of Great Britain; the resulting total system power output and GHG emissions from all types of generation; and the half-hourly marginal changes in total wind power output, system output and GHG emissions for the British grid.
