open_FRED: open feed-in time series based on a Renewable Energy Database

last updated on: 2022-05-24

General

In open_FRED, the requirements, assumptions and possibilities of energy system analysis and climate models are examined in order to create high-quality, transparent and citable data sets. These are then linked to open source simulation models that generate feed-in time series of fluctuating renewable energies.

Tasks

The aim of open_FRED is to create a data basis for energy system analyses with a uniform standard. For this purpose, the project made availlable relevant data sets for power plant, geospatial and basic data. The result is a special weather data set with high spatial and temporal resolution that meets the requirements of the feed-in models pvlib, windpowerlib and hydropowerlib.
