Gas supplying most of the heat for today – DMR

Gas has been the main source of fuel for today according to the daily market report.

Gemma Bruce, Client Portfolio Manager on the Optimisation desk at npower said: “Gas is the dominant fuel source for today currently at around 18 gigawatts (GW) closely followed by coal at around 16GW.”

The power system has reasonably healthy margins with over 12GW added the analyst.

However the French interconnector is "virtually not flowing today" as a result of temperatures in France being below eight degrees seasonal norms, the analyst added.

She said wind generation is expected to pick up by another gigawatt, it is currently at around 2GW.
