The move to Smart Grids, has turned up a wealth of data improving the ability to understand various aspects of the network. Usage of this data offline (post trial) can be hindered by the structure of the data. Tidy principles result in a systematic structure beneficial for analysis. We argue tidiness of data is being overlooked in other work to organise energy data. The repositories of several power systems projects are examined to understand how the data is structured. The findings are summarized and recommendations made for improvements in tidiness. Future works in the area are suggested.
