This graph charts the types of resources meeting consumer demand for grid electricity in New England, by megawatt, throughout the course of a day.
Resources in the graph include those using natural gas, nuclear, coal, oil, hydro, other, and renewable resources to generate electricity within New England, as well as net imports from neighboring regions.
Resources in the renewable category include: landfill gas, methane, refuse, solar, steam, wind, and wood. Net import values represent the electricity being imported, less that being exported, across the region’s tie lines.
Hydro is not included in the renewable category primarily because the various sources that make up hydroelectric generation (i.e., conventional hydroelectric, run-of-river, pumped storage) are not universally defined as renewable in the six New England states.
The other category contains the output of energy storage devices (excluding pumped hydro) and demand response.
