Data analysis to support the London Decentralised Energy Capacity Study

The London Decentralised Energy Capacity Study presents the findings of a regional assessment of the potential for renewable and low carbon energy in Greater London and has been conducted by the Greater London Authority (GLA), with funding from the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

The overall approach is based on a standardised methodology developed for DECC (referred to as the 'DECC methodology') which has been modified to reflect Greater London's urban nature (the tailored methodology). An assessment of the technical potential and deployment potential is made in Phases 1 and 2 of the study respectively, whilst Phase 3 considers a roadmap to deployment.

The accompanying reports are available on the GLA website

The datasets consist of a series of Excel 2003 spreadsheets which outline the methodology and parameters used, along with detailed and summary results. The datasets for each phase are contained in a compressed file and should be used in conjunction with the reports. Note that some workbooks contain macros but these are not required for them to work so can be disabled on opening.
