Data communities need to come before data catalogues

  • National Grid publish solar generation data, but what sites are excluded? Is it transmission/distribution loss adjusted? To what extent is it modelled vs measured? To what extent to these factors matter for an individual user, depending on what they are doing with the data? Will the importance of factors change over time?
  • BMRS publish much of their data by settlement day and half hourly settlement period. But how do these settlement periods handle the clock change? When the clocks move forward, will they skip settlement periods 3 and 4, or will they skip periods 47 and 48?
