In Phase 3, the policy details for Open Energy Data Access Conditions were set out in Section 3.4.1 of Phase 3 Technical Documentation. Work conducted during the Open Energy pilot phase has since developed a set of specifications required to operationalise the data access policy in an environment without a central authorising body.

Development of the specifications was informed by desk research and two sets of Advisory Group consultation and was guided by design principles of fairness, transparency and proportionality.

The specifications outline which access condition types can be supported in the Pilot phase, five proof pathways, and the associated roles and responsibilities of different entities within the Open Energy ecosystem. Design may be subject to iterative change in response to testing and feedback.
