The Electricity Commission is required to establish, maintain, and publish a Centralised Dataset (CDS) under Part F of the Electricity Governance Rules.

The Centralised Dataset includes:

Half – Hourly Data
Meter data

HVDC flows
Active power by grid exit point
Reactive power by grid exit point
Generation by grid injection point
Bids and offers


Final prices
Binding constraints

Hydrology data
Historic hydro inflows (New Spectra Update to end of June 2008 now available)

Historic lake levels (new report)

Network configuration data

The Commission will maintain a register of recipients of the Centralised Dataset. The Commission requires this information to:

Inform you of any future updates to the CDS
Record recipients of the CDS due to the sensitive nature and copyright status of some of the material.
Archived Centralised Dataset documents
