Get the Data#
In order to directly load the already build data into a pandas dataframe just call
import powerplantmatching as pm pm.powerplants(from_url=True)
which will parse and store the actual dataset of powerplants of this
from_url=False (default) will load all the necessary data
files and combine them. Note that this might take some minutes.
The resulting dataset compared with the capacity statistics provided by the ENTSOE SO&AF:
The merged data is also available as a bigger dataset which provides the original data entries

Calling the function with
reduced=False will trigger the matching process which requires Java to be installed on your system. Please ensure that you have Java installed and that it is in your system’s PATH.
You can download and install Java from the official website: https://www.java.com/en/download/
If Java is not installed or not in your system’s PATH, you may encounter runtime errors.
