Having a database of all Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) assets in Great Britain (GB) is only half of the challenge in creating the Leaderboard, the other half is understanding and collecting data on the markets themselves. We collected a lot of data to create our Leaderboard, ranging from monthly Firm-Frequency-Response auction results to the physical (measured) 1Hz grid frequency.

All data used in the Modo Leaderboard is public. This data, supplemented with our own proprietary data (e.g GB BESS asset database) is cleaned and processed a lot to create the Leaderboard.

The table (below) shows an example of the datasets and sources used in the Leaderboard.
