Data Documentation Erdgas-BRidGE – Input data for modeling the power, building, and gas sector


This data documentation provides data representing parts of the power, the building and gas sector, which have been compiled within the research project Erdgas-BRidGE (Erdgas - Bedeutung und zukünftige Rolle in der deutschen (German) Energiewende). The aim of this documentation is to increase the transparency of input data for energy modeling in the German context.

Therefore, the report Erdgas-BRidGE_Data_Documentation_Report (2021).pdf documents the data collected and processed in the course of the project. Furthermore, the data set Erdgas-BRidGE_Dataset (2021).xlsx provides the compiled or further processed data with separate table sheets. The script available under the file name has been used to process historical capacity bookings.

The modifications of the version 1.1.0 – compared to the previous version 1.0.0 – include the following updates:

  • Minor formal corrections in the report
  • An adjustment in the calculation basis of the district heating profiles
  • Correction of an error in the calculation of the absolute number of individual type buildings in the database for the German building stock.

Erdgas-BRidGE is a joined effort by the Energiewirtschaftliches Insitut an der Universität zu Köln (ewi) and the Chair of Energy Economics at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD-EE2). The project was funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy through the grant "Erdgas-BRidGE", FKZ: 03ET4055A and FKZ: 03ET4055B.
