SP Energy Networks has been leading various innovation projects to provide solutions to the challenges which our electricity network is facing due to the changes in the way we consume and generate energy. The projects are to support the UK government targets for low carbon economy and are predominately funded by Ofgem innovation fund mechanisms. The learnings and outcomes of the projects are typically disseminated through workshops, conferences and the SP Energy Networks innovation website, to allow knowledge sharing in wider UK applications. Our innovation website provides access to the key documents on the projects.
In addition to this, there may be data generated and collected as part of these innovation projects. It is our intention to share said data with relevant and interested parties who can demonstrate that their use of this is in the best interest of UK electricity customers. The provision of data is subject to anonymisation and/or redaction for reasons of commercial confidentiality or other sensitivity.
Access to this data must be requested by contacting SPInnovation@spenergynetworks.com. Please provide the following information in your request:
• Affiliation, position and contact details of requesting party
• Relevant project and type of data required
• Reasons for requesting this data and evidence that this data will be used in the interest of the UK network electricity customers
• How data will be shared internally and externally by the requesting party
Any data request deemed unsuitable for sharing will be highlighted to the appropriate requesting party. After receiving the request we will provide the estimated date for completing the data provision based on other requests and our team workload at that time. All requested data remains the property of SP Energy Networks.
