Data on electricity demand and renewable energy production for the Colombian energy system
Description of this data
Data produced for the analysis and development of a high temporal resolution model for the Colombian energy system. The information presented here was collected from international agencies and domestic organisations (SIEL, XM, IEA, UPME, ACOLGEN, IDEAM) and finally filtered and processed. It includes electricity hourly demand data from 2012-2016, natural water inflows time series, renewable energy sources (RES) production distributions and energy exports and imports.
Experiment data files
1. Electricity demand
This folder contains hourly electricity demand distributions from 2012 to 2016. Each file is in text (.txt) format and includes 8784 load data in MW for each year, therefore the additional demand hours for leap years are considered.
2. Water inflows time series
Daily natural water inflows time series are included in this folder. Each text file contains the hourly energy input to the hydropower dams in GW. A map illustrates the location of these dams in Colombia and their capacities. In addition, hourly average hydro generation distributions are included for 2014 and years affected by El Niño and La Niña southern oscillation (ENSO). Table with power capacity for the period 2006-2016 also included.
3. RES dataset
The folder includes hourly wind and solar power output distributions during normal years and periods affected by ENSO. A map and a table with coordinates are included illustrating the sites where these plants might be built according to the Colombian electricity information system (SIEL).
4. Electricity Export-Import dataset
This folder contains hourly electricity export and import distributions from 2012 to 2016. Each file includes 8784 data in MW for each year, therefore the additional hours for leap years are considered. Furthermore, the Colombian electricity grip map in 2016 is supplied.
