Electricity Production and Exchange 5 min Realtime

The electricity production and exchange in MWh/h in 5 minutes intervals, updated each 5th minute.

The total load, including loses, is calculated as the sum of production from power plants, solar and wind power plus the exchange to Germany, Sweden, Norway, and The Netherlands. The exchange between Bornholm and price area SE4 is included the exchange DK2 to Sweden, and should not be taken into account.

Please note that the format shown in the example applies to data download as JSON, XML or fetched through the API and is in accordance with the ISO 8601 standard. The format is slightly different when it is shown on screen or downloaded manually as CSV or XLSX. This is mainly due to readability and consideration for Excel users.

In preview (in the GUI) all timestamps are shown as (display convention) YYYY-MM-DD hh:mmZ e.g. 2017-07-14 08:05Z. The Z will remind viewers that this is UTC.

In download (CSV and XLSX) the date time are exported as YYYY-MM-DD hh:mm e.g. 2017-07-14 08:05. That is without the \u201cT\u201d and the \u201cZ\u201d and the seconds. Excel will recognize it as date-time. The user must remember the convention about time zones.

In download (JSON and XML) the full format is used YYYY-MM-DDThh:mmZ e.g. 2017-07-14T08:05Z.

Description

A date and time (interval), shown in UTC time zone, where the values are valid. 00:00:00 o\u2019clock is the first 5 minutes of a given day, interval 00:00:00 - 00:04:59, and 00:05:00 covers the second 5 minutes period (interval) of the day and so forth.

Please note: The naming is based on the length of the interval of the finest grain of the resolution
