Where can I find a dataset of daily electricity usage from a zone or country anywhere in the world?

Anywhere = i accept any dataset from anywhere in the world, but at least a daily usage

  • It might be easier to find energy production from power plants in a given area, rather than usage.

  • The GreenButton energy data may be of interest for smaller consumption zones (ie. buildings)

  • There is a growing list of energy consumption/production dashboards at opendata.stackexchange.com/q/7377/1511

The European countries in the Entsoe-E provide hourly data aggregated on the country level.

Please see this answer for more details.

European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity (ENTSOE) provides Consumption and Production data for individual countries (and Exchange data between countries). (Link to Data Portal.)

  • Hint: If you want to mimic a city's consumption, take a small country like Luxembourg.

ERDF, France's network operator has put many datasets online this year. If you can read french, that's a great option since they have great visualization too. website: https://erdf.opendatasoft.com/

Bilan Électrique au pas journalier: Daily consumption and more since August 2010 Visualization

Data: Bilan Électrique au pas demi-heure: 30 min intervals consumption and more since August 2010 - LINK

Try this UC Machine Learning Dataset


UW has similar dataset. Their page says they will posts the datasets soon. You may want to contact them to get a copy beforehand.


The Australian government's Department of Industry has a dataset on 31 example homes in 30 minute intervals on their open data site:


University of Massachusetts Amherst also has a research dataset:



The Australian government has published a Smart-Grid Smart-City Customer Trial Data.

There are two datasets (with additional bits and pieces - see below):

  • One contains consumptions of 30 families measured very half hour over one year.
  • The other list similar data for 3,000 families

See smart-grid-smart-city-customer-trial-data

This data is from the customer trial conducted as part of the Smart Grid Smart City (SGSC) project (2010-2014). It provides one of the few linked sets of customer time of use (half hour increments) and demographic data for Australia, as well as detailed information on appliance use, climate, retail and distributor product offers, and other related factors. The project was jointly funded by the Australian Government and an industry consortia, led by Ausgrid. Data resources that comprise this Customer Trial Data may be linked by the Customer ID number. Details of data resources for this dataset are listed below and include: electricity use interval readings; customer household data; home area network plug readings; peak events; peak events response; and offer and acceptance.


The Almanac of Minutely Power dataset Version 2 captures three major types of energy consumption, namely electricity, water, and gas.

The data were captured in a Canadian residential home over a 2-year period (1 minute intervals). Also, it has been beautifully cleaned and ready to be analyzed.
