The Electricity Industry forms an essential part of our daily lives. From our alarm clock going off in the morning, to our phone being fully charged, our televisions and our kettles – we rely on electricity on a constant basis.
Climate Change and Net Zero targets have added an additional focus to the electricity sector. The public is now far more vocal in its views on where our electricity comes from (is it dirty, polluting coal plants, or is my home supplied by renewable energy?)
The purpose of this training course is to inform readers of some of the key areas of the electricity sector in Great Britain.
The course is split into three sections:
Fundamentals of Electricity:
What is Electricity?
How is it Transported?
Who are the main players in the Electricity market:

Where does our Electricity come from:
Thermal and Nuclear Energy
After the course, you will have an understanding of how the electricity network is operated, who the important market participants are and what types of electricity generation do we have in Great Britain. You will be able to understand the key responsibilities of each market participant, and will have a well rounded view of how the electricity market works in Great Britain.
