Description Aggregated generation capacity by technology and country
Notes This data package comprises technology-specific aggregated generation capacities for European countries. The generation capacities are consistently categorized based on fuel and technology. For each European country, various references are used ranging from international (e.g. ENTSOE or EUROSTAT) to national sources from e.g. regulatory authorities. The input data is processed in the script linked below.
