In Scotland in 2002, the latest year for which data is available, 8.03 terawatt hours of electricity generated in Scotland was exported to other parts of the UK. According to Ofgem, the average wholesale price for electricity in 2002 was £15.20/MWh, on which basis the gross value of sales of electricity for that year is estimated at £122 million. There is no breakdown for the value of exports of electricity in employment terms.
