Energy Data

Bespoke data service:  The Renewable Energy Foundation is pleased to offer a bespoke data query service of its extensive largely-unpublished databases through its consultancy arm, Renewable Energy Forum. Potential clients should note that both Renewable Energy Foundation and Forum have large databases with information on renewable and non renewable energy generation, and planning applications and appeals, and is a licensed user of the Elexon electricity market database.
