UKERC Energy Data Centre: Content

Content held in the EDC

The system holds four types of content:

  • Data Catalogue - a collection of energy-related datasets; some are curated here at the Energy Data Centre, but there are links to others held elsewhere. Some datasets have restricted access, and you will need to register to use them.
  • Project Catalogue - this contains information about publically funded research in energy derived from a range of funding bodies.
  • Publications
    • UKERC Publications - these are publications published by UKERC, or produced as a result of UKERC’s activities.
    • Landscapes (“Where we are today”) - these provide a comprehensive account of competencies and publicly funded activities in energy research, and development and demonstration in the UK.
    • Roadmaps (“Where we should be going”)- a collection of national and international documents summarizing the problems to be overcome before new technologies can be commercially viable
    • ETI Publications- these are the publically accessible outputs of the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) – Journal Articles, Books, Book Chapters, Conference Papers, ETI Publications (working papers and reports), Presentations, and Calls for proposals. Each output has been, linked to the relevant ETI project, and if applicable linked to a dataset which has been lodged in the Data catalogue.
  • Visualisations- a collection of visual tools for understanding large datasets

Where does the content come from?

The content held within the EDC comes from a variety of sources depending on the type of material.

Data Catalogue

Data deposited with us comes from the UKERC researcher community and other researchers who would like to use a domain respository. This is mediated by EDC staff. Metadata only records for other datasets related to our domain are created by EDC staff.

Project Catalogue

We routinely classify and release information on projects relating to the energy sector from the ESRC and EPSRC. The catalogue also has project information from a wide range of government and industry bodies which have been added on a one-off basis.

UKERC Publications

We routinely classify and release publications from the UKERC community, with a particular focus on those published by UKERC. Information comes from UKERC colleagues.

Landscapes

These are commissioned by the EDC from experts in the field. Each landscape provides a comprehensive account in a specfic topic of competencies and publicly funded activities in energy research, development and demonstration (RD&D) in the UK and covers UK participation in international activities. On average, these are updated every five to ten years.

Roadmaps

These are added to the system by EDC staff when relevant ones become available.

ETI publications, projects and data

The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) was a £400m industry and UK government partnership in low carbon energy system planning and technology development, which was operational between 2007 and 2019. Its mission was to accelerate the development, demonstration and eventual commercial deployment of a focused portfolio of energy technologies, to facilitate energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help achieve energy and climate change goals.

The ETI Publications Catalogue contains the majority of the publically accessible ETI outputs – Journal Articles, Books, Book Chapters, Conference Papers, ETI Publications (working papers and reports), Presentations, and Calls for proposals. Each output has been linked to the relevant ETI project (in the projects catalogue), and if applicable linked to a dataset which has been lodged in the Data catalogue.
