Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN), the distribution network operator for central southern England, saw a spike in electricity demand equivalent to making over 320,000 cups of tea during half time of the England vs Denmark semi-final.

The electricity operator revealed that at half time of the match there was an electricity increase of 102MVA from 2957 to 3059MVA.

This is the equivalent of boiling 40,800 full kettles or making 326,400 cups of tea.

SSEN invests in its electricity network to ensure its critical infrastructure remains resilient during unusual and special events, so the spike in usage did not cause any disruption.
