Complete Data Bundle for PyPSA-Eur: An Open Optimisation Model of the European Transmission System

Hörsch, Jonas; Hofmann, Fabian; Schlachtberger, David; Brown, Tom; Neumann, Fabian

PyPSA-Eur is an open model dataset of the European power system at the transmission network level that covers the full ENTSO-E area. It can be built using the code provided at https://github.com/PyPSA/PyPSA-eur.

It contains alternating current lines at and above 220 kV voltage level and all high voltage direct current lines, substations, an open database of conventional power plants, time series for electrical demand and variable renewable generator availability, and geographic potentials for the expansion of wind and solar power.

Not all data dependencies are shipped with the code repository, since git is not suited for handling large changing files. Instead we provide separate data bundles to be downloaded and extracted as noted in the documentation.

This is the full data bundle to be used for rigorous research. It includes large bathymetry and natural protection area datasets.

While the code in PyPSA-Eur is released as free software under the GPLv3, different licenses and terms of use apply to the various input data, which are summarised below:

corine/*

Access to data is based on a principle of full, open and free access as established by the Copernicus data and information policy Regulation (EU) No 1159/2013 of 12 July 2013. This regulation establishes registration and licensing conditions for GMES/Copernicus users and can be found here. Free, full and open access to this data set is made on the conditions that:

  • When distributing or communicating Copernicus dedicated data and Copernicus service information to the public, users shall inform the public of the source of that data and information.

  • Users shall make sure not to convey the impression to the public that the user's activities are officially endorsed by the Union.

  • Where that data or information has been adapted or modified, the user shall clearly state this.

  • The data remain the sole property of the European Union. Any information and data produced in the framework of the action shall be the sole property of the European Union. Any communication and publication by the beneficiary shall acknowledge that the data were produced “with funding by the European Union”.
