Project Overview

Thermal constraints are taken when the amount of energy that would flow naturally from one region to another exceeds the capacity of the circuits connecting the two regions. This dataset provides outturn system costs for thermal constraints across a number of significant constraint boundaries.

The data is provided now additionally in csv format. We intend to remove the xlsx version by the end of July 2021. If you would like us to retain the xlsx version please let us know via Balancing.costs@nationalgrideso.com
