New data that shows the electricity consumption and generation patterns of more than 12,000 UK customers has been published by the Customer-Led Network Revolution (CLNR).

Domestic and business customers were monitored over a two-year period to produce industry-leading research into current, emerging and possible future electricity load and generation patterns.

Thousands of the customers taking part in the project had smart meters which provide accurate information on electricity demand and generation activity every 30 minutes.

Many of the customers had solar panels, heat pumps and electric vehicle charging points, providing important new data on the impact of these new low-carbon loads on local electricity networks.
