The UKERC Energy Data Centre (UKERC EDC), based at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, hosts energy data for users in the public, private, and third sectors.

It provides an up-to-date understanding of the UK energy research landscape, particularly in terms of activities, their location, inter-relationships, major achievements, and outputs.

Data sets

  • Projects Catalogue: a searchable data set that reveals the range and diversity of UK public sector energy research as a tool for identifying new opportunities for research and collaboration.
  • Data Catalogue including such data sets as an appliance-by-appliance and whole-home power demand for UK homes; baseline energy use and emissions for key process industries; and half-hourly electricity daily load profiles for standard UK profile class definitions.
  • 'Landscapes and roadmaps' describing current research activity across the UK energy research landscape and outlining future plans.
  • UKERC Publications Catalogue

Deposit your data

UKERC EDC is keen to acquire energy data sets of value to energy researchers. Depositing your data with us guarantees:

  • A safe and secure data storage facility, with data held in the long-established NERC-funded Centre for Environmental Data Analysis at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
  • Storage of very large data sets in the terabyte range.
  • Capacity to hold confidential data as well as open- or restricted-access data sets.
  • One of small number of British Library-authorised DOI data mints. We mint data with a DOI for inclusion in data journals such as Nature Scientific Data.

Please contact the EDC Manager if you would like to deposit data or learn more about UKERC EDC.
