Evolving power grid research and applications possess a number of underlying requirements that existing open-access datasets do not address. In order to create a data repository that supports easy data access, data sharing, model evolution, benchmarking, community involvement, data publication, and other such advancements, it is vital to define specific requirements. This document describes these requirements for a Curated Power Grid Data Repository (CPGDR) and gives detail of a bench-scale prototype that implements a subset of given requirements.
