The Government routinely publishes total export figures from interconnectors in the annual Digest of UK Energy Statistics (DUKES), and the quarterly National Statistics Energy Trends data. The next Digest is due to be published on 27 July 2017, and provisional 2016 data will feature in the next Energy Trends report due for publication on 30 March.

The latest available 12 month period of data spans Q4 2015 to Q3 2016 and shows a total export of 1,255GWh.
