Open Settlement Data

Several Settlement datasets are now available for you access. You can view specific details relating to different periods, charges etc. The Settlement Data provided can be used to help you to understand the settlement process and verify BSC trading charges. 

Data sets 

All of the data below is published in month to date .csv format files within the zipped folders. The month refers to the month in which the data was produced according to the Settlement Run calendar. The data is a subset of the data available in the data flow SAA-I014 (subflow 2).

We have provided this data for you to download and use as part of ad hoc analysis.

Data source

Settlement data is calculated and published by the Settlement Administration Agent (SAA) as part of the Central Systems settlement process. This SAA-I014 (subflow 2) dataflow is sent to Elexon, National Grid ESO and can be sent to BSC Parties and non-BSC Parties on request. Elexon has reformatted the data from the SAA-I014 into .csv here to be easier to use.


We will continue to develop and improve our Open Settlement Data provision. If you have any feedback to help us please let us know by emailing [email protected] with the subject line ‘Open Settlement Data’.
