GSP - Gnode - Direct Connect - Region Lookup

Table Information

ng_id

Title ng_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID used in region derivations
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset.
Example 1
Unit N/A

ggd_id

Title ggd_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID representing a fundamental entity in the lookup between GSP, Gnode and DNO License Area
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset. Facilitates a MANY:MANY relationship between GSP and Gnode
Example 1
Unit N/A

gnode_id

Title gnode_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID for each Gnode
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset.
Example 1
Unit N/A

gnode_name

Title gnode_name
Type string
Description Unique Name for each Gnode
Comment Preferred name for the Gnode entity within National Grid ESO.
Example COWL
Unit N/A

gnode_lat

Title gnode_lat
Type number
Description Latitude of the Gnode location
Comment Not always the same as the corresponding GSP location due to disparate datasets and occasionally complex Gnode definitions.
Example 51.71105
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

gnode_lon

Title gnode_lon
Type number
Description Longitude of the Gnode location
Comment Not always the same as the corresponding GSP location due to disparate datasets and occasionally complex Gnode definitions.
Example -1.18901
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

gsp_id

Title gsp_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID for each Grid Supply Point
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset.
Example 1
Unit N/A

gsp_name

Title gsp_name
Type string
Description Unique Name for each Grid Supply Point
Comment Consistent with the naming convention used by Elexon in Settlement Data
Example COWL_1
Unit N/A

gsp_lat

Title gsp_lat
Type number
Description Latitude of the Grid Supply Point location
Comment Not always the same as the corresponding Gnode location due to disparate datasets and occasionally complex Gnode definitions.
Example 51.71105
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

gsp_lon

Title gsp_lon
Type number
Description Longitude of the Grid Supply Point location
Comment Not always the same as the corresponding Gnode location due to disparate datasets and occasionally complex Gnode definitions.
Example -1.18901
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

dc_id

Title dc_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID for each 'Direct Connect'
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset.
Example 1
Unit

dc_name

Title dc_name
Type string
Description Unique Name for each 'Direct Connect'
Comment Preferred name for the 'Direct Connect' entity within National Grid ESO. Direct Connects represent demand that is connected directly to the transmission network. They are included in this dataset because they may theoretically host embedded generation and/or may form part of a MANY:MANY relationship with a Gnode.
Example T_CASKD-1
Unit

dc_lat

Title dc_lat
Type number
Description Latitude of the 'Direct Connect'
Comment
Example 53.3421
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

dc_lon

Title dc_lon
Type number
Description Longitude of the 'Direct Connect'
Comment
Example 2.7297
Unit Decimal degrees in WGS 1984 Coordinate Reference System

region_id

Title region_id / RegionID
Type integer
Description Unique ID for each geospatial boundary
Comment Arbitrary, not widely used outside of this dataset. Not consistent between versions of this dataset.
Example 1
Unit N/A

region_name

Title region_name / RegionName
Type string
Description Unique Name for each geospatial boundary
Comment Usually derived from GSP name but may differ for complex GSP definitions.
Example Cowley
Unit N/A

has_pv

Title has_pv
Type boolean
Description Whether the entity is deemed to possibly host any embedded Solar Photovoltaic capacity based on best available evidence at the time the regions were derived.
Comment Uses human intelligence from stakeholders within National Grid ESO.
Example 1
Unit N/A

pes_id

Title pes_id
Type integer
Description Unique ID for each Public Electricity Supplier region a.k.a DNO License Area a.k.a GSP Group region
Comment Widely used integer ID for each PES region, including for example in the Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) where it is known as 'Distributor ID'. There are 14 PES regions with IDs from 10 to 23. Note that the 'Distributor ID in an MPAN can also have a value greater than 23 which represents an Independent Distribution Network Operator (IDNO) - IDNOs are not represented in this dataset.
Example 20
Unit N/A

pes_name

Title pes_name
Type string
Description Character code used to identify each PES a.k.a DNO License Area a.k.a GSP Group
Comment Widely used across the electricity industry, including for example in settlment data published by Elexon.
Example _H
Unit N/A
