POD (Platform for Operational Data)

Our Platform for Operational Data enables users to access and request data sets collected by the Catapult from the 7MW Levenmouth Demonstration Turbine. Better access to quality data leads to better analysis and insight and thus better decision-making – this, in turn, leads to reduced risk for investors and greater return on investment. We aim to support innovative research projects and product development through data provision to academics, researchers, and in the wider community pursuing growth opportunities in renewables.
