Database of the European energy storage technologies and facilities
Publisher: Directorate-General for Energy
Period: 01/01/2020 - Ongoing
The database of European energy storage technologies and facilities includes: energy storage technologies and their characteristics; front of the meter energy storage facilities in the EU-28, operational or in project, that are connected to the generation and the transmission grid; behind the meter energy storage installed capacity per country. Database and report available.
Since 2011, Eoltech has published its wind energy index on 3 major regions of wind power development in France. Today, this indicator of regional wind resource is updated each month on 7 major regions, to allow operators and financial partners of projects to put their park production into the general perspective of the available wind resource. There is also a cumulative report updated monthly, from 2005 to present.
The EU ETS data viewer provides access to emission trading data contained in the European Union Transaction Log (EUTL) which is the central transaction log. Including data from more than 15000 stationary installations reporting under the EU emission trading system, as well as 1500 aircraft operators.
European economic statistics - includes climate and energy (total energy, electricity generation, energy intensity). Eurostat is the statistical office of the European Union situated in Luxembourg. Its task is to provide the European Union with statistics at European level that enable comparisons between countries and regions. The website has available downloadable statistics, population census information for 2011, web services, microdata, GIS, metadata definitions, SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange), and data validation information. Datasets are in tab separated values and sdmz format. Downloads can be automated. All information is updated twice a day.Eurostats main role is to process and publish comparable statistical information at European level. Eurostat does not collect data. This is done in Member States by their statistical authorities. They verify and analyse national data and send them to Eurostat. Eurostats role is to consolidate the data and ensure they are comparable, using harmonized methodology. The European Statistical System (ESS) is the partnership between the Community statistical authority, which is the Commission (Eurostat), and the national statistical institutes (NSIs) and other national authorities responsible in each Member State for the development, production and dissemination of European statistics. This Partnership also includes the EEA and EFTA countries. Member States collect data and compile statistics for national and EU purposes. The ESS functions as a network in which Eurostats role is to lead the way in the harmonization of statistics in close cooperation with the national statistical authorities. ESS work concentrates mainly on EU policy areas - but, with the extension of EU policies, harmonization has been extended to nearly all statistical fields. The ESS also coordinates its work with candidate countries and at European level with other Commission services, agencies and the ECB and international organisations such as OECD, the UN, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.
European Electricity Harmonisation and Electrotechnical Standards
Publisher: European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation (CENELEC)
Period: 01/01/2001 - Ongoing
Rights: Licensed data (restrictions may apply)
European electricity harmonisation and electrotechnical standards, based on a consensus, which reflects the economic and social interests of 33 CENELEC Member countries channelled through their National Electrotechnical Committees (NCs). Most standards are initiated by industry. Other standardization projects can come from consumers, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) or associations, or even European legislators. Besides European Standards, CENELEC produces other reference documents, which can be developed quickly and easily: Technical Specifications, Technical Reports and Workshop Agreements. CENELEC is a Non Profit International Association, forming the officially recognised European Standards Organisations (ESOs) together with CEN, the European Committee for Standardization and ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. CENELEC acts as a platform for experts to develop European Standards (ENs), which facilitate world trade by removing barriers to trade, enhancing economic growth and leading to new markets.CENELEC concentrates most of its work on 2 major deliverables: The European Standard (EN) and the Harmonization Document (HD). These two documents are referred to commonly as "standards" and must be implemented in all CENELEC member countries, who must also withdraw any conflicting standard.
The European Environment Agency provides sound, independent information on the environment for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public. The site includes interactive data viewers for datasets. There are also visualizations on specific topics such as Progress on Energy Efficiency in Europe, and publications. A major information source for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public. Currently, the EEA has 33 member countries. The website is available in a wide range of languages. There is a Semantic Data Service, allowing access to datasets using APIs, but datasets can also be downloaded as zip files and INSPIRE-compliant metadata sets. No registration is needed, but on download, some usage feedback is requested.
The Industrial Emissions Portal covers over 60,000 industrial sites from 65 economic activities across Europe. These activities cover a range of sectors including energy. Data can be browsed in a map of sites, here. Full datasets and guidance documents can be downloaded. Various data analysis tools and visualisations are available.
The Fuel Cell Hydrogen Observatory (FCHO) provides data (statistics, facts and analysis) and up to date information about the entire hydrogen sector. The FCHO focuses on technology and market statistics, socio-economic indicators, policy and regulation, and financial support. Funded by the FCH JU, the observatory is created for the use of policy makers, industry stakeholders and the general public.
Odyssee-Mure Energy Efficiency and Policy Databases
Period: 01/01/2000 - Ongoing
Rights: Mixed access rights
The Odyssee database contains detailed energy efficiency and CO2-indicators with data on energy consumption, their drivers (activity indicators) and their related CO2-emissions. The Mure database contains a description, with their impact evaluation whenever available, of all energy efficiency measures implemented at EU or national level. Some data and tools are publically accessible but some are restricted access.
A free and open data platform for energy system modelling. OPSD collect, check, process, document, and publish data that are publicly available but currently inconvenient to use. Open access where possible but some data published here might be subject to copyright. Check specific terms by data set.For further information see "Open Power System Data Frictionless data for electricity system modelling" in Applied Energy. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apenergy.2018.11.097
Publisher: ECN Biomass & Energy Efficiency (Energy research Centre of the Netherlands)
Period: 01/01/1998 - Ongoing
Rights: Open Access
Phyllis is a database containing information on the composition of biomass and waste. From Phyllis you can obtain analysis data of individual biomass or waste materials or average values for a group of materials. Groups can be selected from one of three classification schemes: the ECN Phyllis scheme, the NTA 8003 scheme (only in Dutch), and the European standard CEN/TS 14961. The latter scheme is used for the BIODAT database, which has been made an integral part of Phyllis. The BIODAT database was developed in co-operation with European partners within the PHYDADES project. BIODAT is restricted to data from standard analysis methods. In 2012, BIODAT became a subset of Phyllis and the Phyllis website was adapted accordingly. In the future, the BIODAT subset will be the main growth area of the Phyllis database.
