IS2RE binding energy

Hello OCP team, thank you for your amazing dataset!
Does the data for the IS2RE task contain only the relaxed energies?
If so, I was thinking it’s not that useful because what really matters is relaxed energy minus the energy of the separate catalyst + adsorbate. The final relaxed energy isn’t that meaningful when comparing to other structures, right?

Correct, absolute DFT energies are not meaningful on their own. The data for both the IS2RE and S2EF task, however, have been appropriately referenced in a consistent manner to what you described. The following (taken from our paper) describes the exact procedure:
