A harmonised, high-coverage, open dataset of solar photovoltaic installations in the UK
Publisher: Scientific Data (journal)
Period: 01/09/2020 - Ongoing
Open geographic data for over 260,000 solar PV installations across the UK, covering an estimated 86% of the capacity in the country, arising from a major crowd-sourcing campaign. The data set focuses in particular on capturing small-scale domestic solar PV, which accounts for a significant fraction of generation but has been poorly documented. Machine-accessible metadata file describing the reported data: https://doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.13050869

CARMA is a database containing information about the carbon emissions of over 60,000 power plants and 20,000 power companies worldwide. Power generation accounts for 40% of all CO2 emissions in the United States and about one-quarter of global emissions. CARMA is the first global inventory of a major, emissions-producing sector of the economy. It cased being updated in 2012 but is available for downloading from the link. CARMA is produced and financed by the Center for Global Development, an independent and non-partisan think tank located in Washington, DC.The objective of CARMA.org is to equip individuals with the information they need to forge a cleaner, low-carbon future. By providing complete information for both clean and dirty power producers, CARMA hopes to influence the opinions and decisions of consumers, investors, shareholders, managers, workers, activists, and policymakers. CARMA builds on experience with public information disclosure techniques that have proven successful in reducing traditional pollutants.For power plants within the U.S., CARMA relies upon data reported to the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy by the plant operators themselves. CARMA also includes official reported emissions for many plants in the European Union, Canada, India, and South Africa and annual generation for all of the worlds nuclear power plants, as reported by the International Atomic Energy Agency. For non-reporting plants, CARMA estimates electricity generation and CO2 emissions using statistical models that have been fitted to detailed U.S. plant data and unit-level engineering and fuel specifications. CARMA v3.0 reports emissions for the year 2004, 2009, and the future (based on planned construction and retirements).CARMA also aggregates data on individual plants to the level of companies and several geographic entities (continents, countries, states/provinces, and cities worldwide, with additional reports for U.S. metro areas, congressional districts, and counties). CARMA is meant to be a repository of the best available information on power sector carbon emissions. Our policy is to correct any errors or omissions if suggested revisions are verified by an independent third party.
The mission of the US Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program is to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution and to contribute to a more diverse and efficient energy infrastructure by enabling the widespread commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The Program Records area contains supporting data for DOE publications, described as Program-related, Analysis, Fuel cells, Production/delivery, Safety codes, and standards and Storage The U.S. DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program works in partnership with industry, academia, national laboratories, federal and international agencies to:
Overcome technical barriers through research and development of hydrogen production, delivery, and storage technologies, as well as fuel cell technologies for transportation, distributed stationary power, and portable power applications
Address safety concerns and develop model codes and standards
Validate and demonstrate hydrogen and fuel cell technologies in real-world conditions
Educate key stakeholders whose acceptance of these technologies will determine their success in the marketplace.
The publications supported by these records can also be found on the website.
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.
