European electricity harmonisation and electrotechnical standards, based on a consensus, which reflects the economic and social interests of 33 CENELEC Member countries channelled through their National Electrotechnical Committees (NCs). Most standards are initiated by industry. Other standardization projects can come from consumers, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) or associations, or even European legislators. Besides European Standards, CENELEC produces other reference documents, which can be developed quickly and easily: Technical Specifications, Technical Reports and Workshop Agreements. CENELEC is a Non Profit International Association, forming the officially recognised European Standards Organisations (ESOs) together with CEN, the European Committee for Standardization and ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. CENELEC acts as a platform for experts to develop European Standards (ENs), which facilitate world trade by removing barriers to trade, enhancing economic growth and leading to new markets.CENELEC concentrates most of its work on 2 major deliverables: The European Standard (EN) and the Harmonization Document (HD). These two documents are referred to commonly as "standards" and must be implemented in all CENELEC member countries, who must also withdraw any conflicting standard.
The Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD) and the Heat Networks Planning Database are updated and published every quarter. The Renewable Energy Planning Database tracks the progress of renewable electricity and heat networks projects. The Heat Networks Planning Database covers district as well as communal heat network projects. The Renewable Energy Planning Database tracks the progress of renewable electricity and heat networks projects. It provides as accurate and comprehensive a snapshot as possible of projects in both areas, and of progress across the technology sectors.The Heat Networks Planning Database covers district as well as communal heat network projects.It aims to provide a more complete picture of heat network deployment across the UK.The databases are: updated during the month following the end of each quarter; and are provided in 2 separate CSV files, and on separate worksheets within a single XLSX file.
The Electricity Pool operated from 1st April 1990 to 26th March 2001, controlling the trading of electricity within England and Wales. The Electricity Pool data contains system demand and transmission losses plus the price information (/MWh) within the trading pool, comprising the three main prices: Pool purchase price (PPP), the basis of payments to generators; Pool selling price (PSP), the basis of payments by suppliers; and system marginal price (SMP), the highest offered price for any generating set scheduled by the Pool to run before system constraints are taken into account. The Electricity Pool system was replaced by the New Electricity Trading Arrangements (NETA/BETTA) from 27 March 2001. (Note : It is mandatory to acknowledge the UKERC EDC and the data owner Poolit Ltd when any use of this data is made in publications) Explanation of parameters and pool operation PSP : Pool Selling Price, is the price paid mostly by RECs purchasing electricity from the Pool to sell to their final commercial, industrial and residential customers; this value is determined for two distinct price-rule regimes referred to as Table A and Table B periods, such that: PSP = SMP + CC + UPLIFT = PPP + UPLIFT SMP : System Marginal Price is the highest offered price for any generating set scheduled by the Pool before system constraints are taken into account LOLP : Loss Of Load Probability, a decreasing function of the expected amount of excess capacity available during each half-hour period, determined for each half-hour as the probability of a supply interruption due to generation capacity being insufficient to meet demand (the greater the amount of capacity available relative to expected demand in any half-hour, the lower the LOLP and therefore the lower the capacity charge per KWH paid to generators) VOLL : Value Of Lost Load, representing the per kWh willingness of customers to pay to avoid supply interruptions; it was set by the Director General of the Office of Electricity Regulation (OFFER) at 2,000 per megawatt-hour (MWH) for 1990/91 and was then increased annually by the growth in the RPI PPP : Pool Purchase Price, is the price paid to generators for electricity purchased into the Pool CC : Capacity Charge: CC = LOLP * (VOLL - SMP) is a signal to generators of the necessity for additional generation capacity and to consumers that their consumption has a significant probability of requiring the maximum amount of generating capacity available in that load period UPLIFT : a charge to compensate generators for reserve, plant available but not actually used to meet demand, and startup costs, known only ex post and therefore the only price uncertainty from the day ahead perspective; it is collected over at least 28 Table A pricing periods each day (UPLIFT is zero for Table B pricing periods) according to the formula: Availability Payment/MWh = LOLP*(VOLL - max(SMP, bid price))
Annual, quarterly and monthly electricity statistics available to download. This page brings together all the UK Government data sources that focus on electricity including historic data (1920-2012) and imports, exports and transfers of electricity Brings together electricity data from DUKES (annual data), energy trends (articles, quarterly and monthly data) and historic data. These datasets form part of other dataset collections in the UK Government statistics.
