Regen is supporting UK Power Networks to develop its open data offering. Our aim is to develop a collaborative community of open data users that can help shape and develop the data services provided by UKPN.
Project duration: June 2021 to present
As we progress to net zero, the electricity networks will be required to connect significantly more low carbon technologies and to intelligently plan and manage their networks. Opening up electricity network data can enable innovators to create new products and services, it can drive up performance and deliver benefits for customers. Open data will play an important part in enabling smarter and more efficient ways of working.
Regen is working with users and stakeholders to raise awareness of the opportunities and to identify:
What do people want data for (the use case)? And what other ideas can we come up with?
How do they want to access it (the user design requirements)? And can we design the perfect service together?
We will be engaging through multiple channels during 2021 and 2022 to reach as many interested groups as possible. If you would like to get involved, please drop a line to Tamar email@example.com, and watch this space for further information.

During the launch webinar, we asked stakeholders about what was most important to them and how they would like to engage going forward. The findings from this exercise are summarised in the report below:
Regen’s first contribution to the project was a high-end literature review of stakeholder engagement findings in open energy data to date to inform future engagement. The review of literature on open data engagement in the energy sector can be read here:
The data that sits behind the analysis of use cases is available here.
