powerplantmatching.data.OPSD_VRE(raw=False, update=False, config=None)#

Importer for the OPSD (Open Power Systems Data) renewables (VRE) database.

This sqlite database is very big and hence not part of the package. It needs to be obtained from http://data.open-power-system-data.org/renewable_power_plants/

  • raw (Boolean, default False) – Whether to return the original dataset

  • update (bool, default False) – Whether to update the data from the url.

  • config (dict, default None) – Add custom specific configuration, e.g. powerplantmatching.config.get_config(target_countries=’Italy’), defaults to powerplantmatching.config.get_config()
