    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This data set models the continental European electricity system, including demand and renewable energy inflows for the period 2012-2014.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The main features of the data set are:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;High resolution (~50km, 1 hour) and large extent (Mainland Europe, 3 years)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Technical &amp;amp; economic characteristics of generators from real-world data and best available estimates&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Synthetic wind and solar observations and forecasts from numerical weather prediction models, describing the full spatio-temporal structure of potential wind and solar production&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The transmission system comprises 1494 buses and 2156 lines, and is fitted based on [1].&lt;br&gt;
The location, capacity and fuel type&amp;nbsp;for 969 real-world generators are given based on the information in [2], and these are supplied with full cost specifications estimated based on fuel type [3].&lt;br&gt;
For each bus, signals for load [4, 5], wind and solar production is given for each hour of the three years, with the wind and solar signals based on meteorological weather data from&amp;nbsp;[6,7].&lt;br&gt;
Further, at hour 00 and 12, forecasts for the solar and wind production are given for the following 91 hours, based on weather data from [6].&lt;br&gt;
All spatially-distributed data is aggregated to the nodal domain by summation/averaging over the area closest to each node.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Wind and solar signals and forecast are given as capacity factors, i.e. production relative to rated power. To use the renewable signals, a capacity layout must be specified, which assigns an installed solar and wind capacity to each node.&lt;br&gt;
We supply two sets of capacity layouts, both scaled so the mean yearly production of (solar, wind) is equal the mean yearly load across EU.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br&gt;
The Uniform layout is scaled to make the capacity in each node proportional to the area aggregated by that node - i.e. capacity is distributed uniformly across EU.&lt;br&gt;
The Proportional layout is scaled to make the capacity in each node proportional to the area aggregated by that node&amp;nbsp;times the mean yearly capacity factor of the resource at that node - i.e. capacity is installed preferentially in nodes with high capacity factors.&lt;br&gt;
&lt;br&gt;
The data is intended for use in, e.g:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Operational studies on markets&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Investment studies (generation capacity and&amp;nbsp;transmission)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Evaluation of future energy scenarios&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The source code used to generate this data is available at [9].&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Version History:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;V1.2:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Line information extended with data on the number of parallel lines in each connection.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Fixed generator capacity typos.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;V1.1: License relaxed to CC-BY&lt;/p&gt;
