This dataset is published in relation to the preprint titled "Impact of the COVID-19 Lockdown on the Electricity System of Great Britain: A Study on Energy Demand, Generation, Pricing and Grid Stability" which is accepted to the Energies journal. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of the March 2020 lockdown on the electricity system and market. This dataset contains all data used for the analyses and plots presented in the paper which uses Britain as a case study. The dataset primarily contains data from March 2020. However, it additionally has March 2019 data in some subfolders where it was used for comparison in the paper.
This dataset is separated into 4 categories following the structure of the paper:
(3) Forecast and Grid Stability, and
