Production and Consumption - Settlement

Production and consumption based on settlement data from Datahub. Data from 2005, but please note additional info in comments

Data is uploaded with an 8 days delay.

Measurement data may be updated up to 2 years after the specific date, however data is normally 99,9 % correct after 8 days.

Data from 2005, but not in all rows:

  • Commercial power separated from local power from 2021
  • Solar power divided into the four columns from 2020. Before 2020 all solar power is placed in SolarPowerSelfConMWh
  • Transmission grid loss from 1/10 2008. Zero is actually a null.
  • GridLossDistributionMWh and GridLossInterconnectorsMWh from 1/1 2021 In some cases, zero should actually be a null

Hour UTC

Description

A date and time (interval), shown in UTC time zone, where the values are valid. 00:00 o’clock is the first hour of a given day interval 00:00 - 00:59 and 01:00 covers the second hour (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.

Comment

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 08:00Z. 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 08:00. That is without the “T” and the “Z” 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. 2017-07-14T08:00Z.

Comment

On one normal day there will be 24 intervals.

When daylight saving times shifts there will be either 23 or 25 intervals.
