UK Energy Datatsets Spreadsheet
Catapult Energy (https://es.catapult.org.uk/) has kindly made available a comprehensive spreadsheet detailing most publicly available datasets that may have value for UK energy research. This document includes links to all listed datasets, detailed descriptions of the forms of data they cover, their date ranges, geographical coverage, ownership details, and availability status. A great starting point for identifying and accessing relevant quantitative data.
