See the electricity monthly production figures broken down into different unit types and usage types. It also provides a full summary of the month's data.

SEAI is in the process of substantially upgrading its monthly Electricity, Gas and Oil webpages, with the aim of launching new versions in early September. The new pages will help users visualise and interact with the monthly data, allowing them to change energy units, zoom in on specific reporting periods, and combine different selections in customisable ways.

You can find out more about the upgrades and some examples of the new interactive plots here.
