Open Power System Data: Aggregated Generation Capacity by Technology and Country

About this data package

This is data package of aggregated generation capacities for European countries. It includes generation capacities for nuclear, fossil and renewable fuels on an aggregated and, if possible, disaggregated technology levels. The data mostly reflects the years 2013 and 2014.

Its final output is a list of national generation capacities differentiated by input fuels and technologies, as well as by different data sources.
