User Configurable Dashboards
On all the main data pages on the site; Agile, Go, Cosy etc, the time frames of the graphs are all pre-set, you can’t change them.
In most cases the date ranges and the data provided is the most relevant snapshot from the particular tariff.
But I know that some people want more data.
For those that are willing and able you can download the raw data in CSV format from the Download Historical Data page.
But not everyone can, or wants to process that amount of data.
So that is where the Dashboards feature comes in.
You can access the dashboard via https://dashboards.energy-stats.uk/ with the opening page looking like this.
When you scroll down the page you will see many of the most popular graphs from the websites as well as the few additions.
Dashboards just allows to you delve deeper into all the underlying data.
In the top left corner you’ll be able to choose the DNO region that you’re interested in looking at.
- Eastern England
- Southern England
- East Midlands
- South Eastern England
- Southern Wales
- Merseyside & Northern Wales
- South Western England
- West Midlands
- North Eastern England
- Southern Scotland
- North Western England
- Northern Scotland
If you’re not sure what a DNO region is or which one you are in, please take a look at our DNO Region Codes Explained page.
Once you’ve chosen the Area Name then it is over to the top right to choose the Time Range that you’re interested in.
As per the screen grab below there are two type of time ranges; Absolute and Relative.
Hopefully these should be pretty explanatory, but if you’re struggling there is the Grafana Documentation to help you.
As the Agile pricing data goes right back to February 2018 you could do potentially choose ‘now-700d’ without any bother. If you were to go back further than February 2018 (or May 2019 for Outgoing) then you’d see an empty graph as there is no data to show.
Please bear in mind that the more data you ask for (ie you go back further) then there may be a short delay as all the info is pulled back from the database.
I really hope you find some utility from this feature. Any problems please let me know via the Contact Form on the site.
