Low Carbon Contracts Company Data Portal


The LCCC manages Contracts for Difference (CfD) and the Supplier Obligation Levy that supports low carbon electricity generation in the UK. The portal provides access to CfD, levy and capacity market data. The published datasets can be downloaded as CSV and JSON formats. The data portal also provides an API, allowing the data to be read programmatically. Users can follow a particular dataset, or a particular data publisher on the portal, so that when a particular dataset gets updated, the users will receive email notifications.
