Description Hourly geographically aggregated weather data for Europe
Notes This data package contains weather data relevant for power system modeling, at hourly resolution, for Europe, aggregated by Renewables.ninja from the NASA MERRA-2 reanalysis. It covers the European countries using a population-weighted mean across all MERRA-2 grid cells within the given country. It also covers Germany's NUTS-2 zones.
