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.
The raw data is based on an extensive research of available national and international statistics. Due to the diverse structure of data sources, a compiled and structured dataset is used as input for further processing. Generally, two cross-national data sources are considered, complemented by national data sources.
The cross-national data sources are:
- ENTSOE "Scenario Outlook & Adequacy Forecasts 2014-2030"
- ENTSOE "Scenario Outlook & Adequacy Forecasts 2013-2030"
- EUROSTAT "Energy Statistics" compiled in EU Commission's "Energy datasheets"
Beside this, the data is complemented by national sources, which includes national statistical offices, ministries, regulatory authorities, transmission system operators, as well as other associations. All data sources are listed in the generated
datapackage.json file including their link.
