Objectives This work will be focussed on the operational planning level across GDN, DNO and others, to develop a clear understanding of how both gas and electricity networks develop and respond to operational plans (covering a 24–72-hour period) and will identify the data which would be usefully shared to improve system operation The scope of the project will be to engage with DNOs, GDNs and ESOs to establish the desire to create data sharing protocols that involve real time data. This data is expected to include but not limited to; Time variant data, including:Demand forecasts, by geographic location, including sensitivities. Supply availabilities, by geographic location, including sensitivities. Gas storage availability (linepack, other). Planned outages. Time invariant data, including: System layout. System capacities. Storage capacities. Market Indicators: Capacity market. EV uptake. Heat pump installations.  The project will determine if a Data Sharing Protocol is feasible and offer tangible benefits to Networks and energy consumers. The initial phase of this project will be stage gated prior to progression of any future phases. 
Abstract Energy network development requires a move towards a whole system approach - driven by data, innovation, and collaboration. Improved coordination between the power and gas sector will ensure that low carbon energy is available to be delivered to the consumer safely, securely, reliably, and efficiently.   Creating a common set of structures for sharing information between local networks will be instrumental to creating an enduring whole systems approach during GD2.   This work will be focussed on the operational planning level across GDN, DNO and others, to develop a clear understanding of how both gas and electricity networks develop and respond to operational plans (covering a 24–72-hour period) and will identify the data which would be usefully shared to improve system operation.
