NIMBUS (Network Innovation and Meteorology to BUild for Sustainability), a partnership between SSEN Transmission, Palantir, Icebreaker One and IBM, is an ambitious project seeking to prolong the life of energy assets by using granular meteorological (weather) data to enable improvements to network asset design, investment and operations.

This in-depth report details Icebreaker One’s work during the Alpha Phase of the project with a specific focus on data sharing, accessibility and interoperability. It explores three core pillars of work:

  • Reviewing the data landscape supporting NIMBUS
  • Evaluating dataset applicability to NIMBUS
  • Convening expert input to guide the project and ensure transferability to the wider energy sector and beyond.
