The UK National Electricity Transmission System Dataset

A time series of the national grid demand (high-voltage electric power transmission network) in the UK since 2011.

An R data package with the UK National Grid historical demand for electricity between 2011 and 2018


The UKgrid dataset is an example of a multiple seasonality time series. This time series captures the demand for electricity and its components in the UK since 2011 using half-hour intervals. In addition, the package provides a function to extract, subset and aggregate the series into ts, xts, zoo, data.frame, data.table, or tbl.

The data was sourced from the National Grid UK website
