The plots are generated just for fun by @ekatef, @davidsf and @MaxParzen, building on the code of @fabianhofmann → Fabian Hofmann. The code for the plots is open-source and available here and requires executing PyPSA-Earth. Limitation. For most countries, we scaled solar and wind capacities with IRENA stats, for others, we cleaned out the solar and wind capacities. We can improve with better data and/or approximations. A good representation of today’s energy and power system is critical for good short-term to mid-term investment and operation planning.
If you want to join or support the work or have questions, reach out to any active contributors PyPSA meets Earth - An open energy system model initiative for our Earth. or https://pypsa.org/. Commercial support (and many more things) can be provided by our non-profit software company and environmental think tank Open Energy Transition. Our vibrant communication space on Discord offers you to join our weekly code meetings and monthly high-level updates. Discord is the central communication space for the community and active developers. All open and free.
The figures were also used to communicate our progress and plans for the PyPSA-Earth model activities. Read more about it here: Maximilian Parzen on LinkedIn: #free #opensource #operational #investment #china #india #thailand… | 15 comments
