Energy data and digitalisation

The data landscape is evolving across the energy sector. Effective use of data can provide valuable insight for consumers and marketplace intermediaries. Ofgem is doing its part by encouraging better use of data to modernise regulated activities by the market and regulation itself.

We are promoting more effective use of data, including increasing its openness, providing this complies with data privacy requirements. We are also promoting different data sets being made interoperable with one another to lower the barrier to insight being created between parts of the market.

We expect this better use of data to be made while continuing to ensure essential services adhere to legislation on its safe and secure use.

Here you can find information about our data agenda, plus guidance and our progress updates as we define and deliver regulatory data best practice.

If you have comments about our work on data, we’d welcome you views. Please contact OfgemDataServices@ofgem.gov.uk.
