In all national electricity supply systems, the power demand varies over the course of a day; there is a rise and fall every 24 hours, with usually a night- time minimum and a daily maximum. In order to assess the contribution that renewable or other sources of energy can make to electricity supply, the distinction between energy and power has to be kept clearly in mind. Whereas the commercial operation of each generation plant is measured against total energy delivered, in the UK the central grid control operated by the National Grid Electricity Transmission plc (National Grid), acting in its role as Great Britain System Operator (GBSO), has to ensure that the power generated (the rate of delivery of energy) balances the power demand at all times, otherwise the system fails.
