A harmonised, high-coverage, open dataset of solar photovoltaic installations in the UK
Dan Stowell, Jack Kelly, Damien Tanner, Jamie Taylor, Ethan Jones, James Geddes and Ed Chalstrey
  Open geographic data for over 260,000 solar PV installations across the UK, covering an estimated 86% of the capacity in the country, arising from a major crowd-sourcing campaign. The data set focuses in particular on capturing small-scale domestic solar PV, which accounts for a significant fraction of generation but has been poorly documented.
BEIS Electrification of Heat Project - Property, Design and Installation Information
ESC, Oxford Commputer Consultants and Delta-EE
  The Electrification of Heat (EoH) demonstration project is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and seeks to better understand the feasibility of a large-scale roll-out of heat pumps in homes across the UK. It aims to demonstrate that heat pumps can be installed in a wide variety of homes and deliver high customer satisfaction across a range of customer groups. This dataset provides data collected by the Delivery Contractors during the participant recruitment, home survey, system design and installation phase of the project. It also contains a unique property ID number which can be used to link this data to future published project datasets. All users are directed to the "Heat Pump Installation Statistics", "Participant Recruitment Report", and "Home Surveys and Install Report" for more information and analysis relating to this data. Additional documentation is also provided as outlined below which indicates what the data is, how the data was collected, and how it may be used.
