What you need to know about the market
- The GB power market has seen a continued shift away from coal towards renewables, with generation of coal falling from 35% of the total electricity generation in GB in 2013 to under 2% in 2022 while the share of renewables has increased from 15% to 43% over the same period, a trend that is continuing.
- Coal will be completely phased out of the system by 2024, with Combined Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGTs) making up most of the dispatchable generation over the next ten years and significant growth in Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) and interconnection capacity to provide flexibility as the share of low-carbon generation grows to make up over 80% of the demand by 2030.
- The rise of renewables is challenging baseload generators by reducing their running hours, as well as merchant renewable generators, who may be subjected to price competition.
