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.

If you find bugs or if you have ideas to improve the Open Energy Platform, you are welcome to add your comments to the existing issues on GitHub.
You can also fork the project and get involved.

Please note that the platform is still under construction and therefore the design of this page is still highly volatile!
