Report: A Review of Publicly Available Energy Data Sets (PDF 1MB)
The report includes links to two data sets. This consists of a) where metering devices are located in the network and frequency and b) phase values (to allow more work to be done with frequency stabilization or phasor base control).
With increasing levels of renewable energy powering our electricity system, data that tracks energy generation, distribution and consumption has never been more important. For consumers,energy data can inform decisions around home energy management, increasing energy efficiency, participation in aggregation schemes for demand response and Virtual Power Plants (VPPs), and investing in new assets like solar, battery storage or an electric vehicle.
For network operators, energy data can improve the visibility of energy generation and consumption on the low-voltage grid and thereby improve their management of the grid. For policymakers, energy data are needed to make sound policy and regulatory decisions for shaping the energy systems of the future, including future renewable energy generation and storage.
This report investigates how energy data have been collected and studied to date. It reviews 24 of the largest, publicly-available energy data sets, to understand what information has been collected, and how the information has been used.
