Wholesale datasets

Location factors

A location factor is simply the ratio of two nodal prices, each determined at the same point in time, and is a measure of the proportional difference between the two prices. Location factors are required in the context of the hedge arrangement disclosure regime - see subpart 5 of part 13 of the Code.

In addition to location factors at all points of connection (nodes) since the wholesale market started in October 1996, the file published here also contains some descriptive summary statistics for nodal prices by year. This file is updated annually.
