Hi there,

Is it possible to get earlier data on generation (grid import) before August 1997? 

I've looked at the following.



These data sets are great, thank you for all the work you do.

The short answer is no. We hold no metered grid data in our data warehouse pertaining to the period prior to what is published on EMI at the links your have provided.

That said, if you rummage around in the old CDS folder, you might find something that meets your needs. The CDS pre-dates the efforts of the Market Analytics team; hence, we are unable to give you precise details about what you'll find therein.
