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 repository. Setting 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

pm.powerplants(reduced=False)

It links the entries of the matched power plants and lists all the related properties given by the different data-sources.
