Carbon Trust Advanced Metering Trial (2004-2006)
Restricted Access: See Rights
Half hourly gas and electricity (and water) consumption data ( not all utilities were monitored at every site) gathered during the Carbon Trusts Advanced Metering for SMEs project (2004-2006). The data was collected from a portfolio of sites by seven independent metering contractors. Sites are characterized by the number of employees, the geographical location, and geographical region. (Please acknowledge The Carbon Trust when making any use of this data)
Meter readings are available for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).The majority of meter readings are for electricity; monitoring of other utilities (gas and water) was available on some sites. Unless otherwise indicated data sets are for electricity; where multiple meters were deployed they are designated (e) for electricity, (g) for natural gas, and (w) for water. In a minority of cases metering on the site was split between several meters: (e1), (e2), etc. The absence of a link indicates some problems in matching the site identifier with the collected data set.

EPSRC Manifest Energy Storage System (ESS) Calibration Test, Newcastle University The experiments were conducted using an Energy Storage System (ESS) in the Smart Grid laboratory at Newcastle University that includes transformers and converters interfacing to the grid, and various energy storage assets. The aim was to demonstrate the control of power flows between the grid and a 90kW / 2kWh supercapacitor bank. Tests were performed to control real power steps (short duration / high power, and long duration / low power) and reactive power steps of the grid-coupled converter. The corresponding power time-series at the supercapacitor bank terminals and the State of Charge (SoC) were recorded and plotted in the accompanying report.

One-Minute Resolution Domestic Electricity Use Data (2008-2009) Electricity data measured at one-minute resolution in 22 dwellings over two complete years (2008 and 2009). Each dwelling was fitted with a single meter covering electricity use of the whole dwelling, however, the one-minute resolution allows the switching of individual domestic appliances to be observed. The meters conform to BS EN 62053-21:2003 and measure true active power (taking proper account of the voltage). The study also includes the results of a dwelling characteristics survey which was completed for each dwelling detailing its characteristics and the types of appliances and lighting installed. I.

Options for a Low Carbon Future Summary of analyses of options for a low carbon economy (includes MARKAL model results by Future Energy Solutions). This report contains the results of a study, undertaken on behalf of DTI, DEFRA and the PIU, to develop a range of bottom-up estimates of carbon dioxide emissions from the UK energy sector up to 2050, and to identify the technical possibilities and costs for the abatement of these emissions. Three levels of abatement by 2050 have been considered: a 60% reduction relative to emissions in 2000 - approximating to the level considered by the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution (RCEP 2000) - plus 45% and 70% reductions relative to 2000 levels.

Options for a Low Carbon Future: Review of Modelling Activities and an Update This report summarises the modelling work undertaken for the 2003 Energy White Paper using the MARKAL energy model. It describes the scenarios andsensitivities used in the modelling work. It concludes that there is a variety of carbon abatement options across the energy supply sector, in improving energy efficiency and across the transport sector. Total abatement costs are uncertain and vary considerably by scenario andsensitivity but are unlikely to have a significant impact on GDP growth.Innovation and technical progress are key elements in reducing the costs ofcarbon abatement. The report compares the costs from the MARKAL model with those from a range of other models. Most of the studies suggest GDP losses of under 3% in 2050. It looks at the different types of economic models used to analyse abatement costs and the reasons why they might produce varying cost estimates Department for Trade and Industry (DTI), now BEIS EDC0000122 United Kingdom
