Table Information

scenario

Title FES Scenario
Type string
Description The scenario to which this data corresponds.
Comment LW: Leading the Way CT: Consumer Transformation ST: System Transformation SP: Steady Progression CF: Central Forecast
Example SP
Unit N/A

year

Title Year
Type integer
Description Two character value indicating the year that this data relates to i.e. "20" = 2020, "50" = 2050.
Comment Capacity is assumed to be present for the winter starting in the stated year.
Example 50

Title Location
Type string
Description Connection location to the electricity system.
Comment Short code names are used for GSPs i.e. "ABTH_1" for Aberthaw 132kV.
Example ABTH_1

Title Forecast demand at winter peak demand
Type number
Description Forecast demand at winter peak demand. This shows whether the storage sites are filling at this time. Negative values indicate the rate of filling.
Comment Winter Peak is a view of peak demand between the hours of 17:00 and 18:00 – typically November-February on a week day.
Example 0

Title Forecast demand at summer minimum morning demand
Type number
Description Forecast demand at summer minimum morning demand. This shows whether the storage sites are filling at this time. Negative values indicate the rate of filling.
Comment Summer Minimum AM is a view of demand between 0500-0600, typically in June-August on a Summer Sunday morning.
Example 0

Title Forecast demand at summer minimum afternoon demand
Type number
Description Forecast demand at summer minimum afternoon demand. This shows whether the storage sites are filling at this time. Negative values indicate the rate of filling.
Comment Summer Minimum PM is a view of demand between 13:00-1400, typically June-August, Summer Sunday afternoon. This period is interesting to study as, whilst not being as low as the morning demand, high solar output will create a low demand on the transmission network.
