How much renewable power is produced in your country today?

In many European countries, the network operator publishes (near) real time information on the electricity production and the contribution of renewable energy .

Germany

In Germany, every day EEX publishes the expected power production of wind power , solar power and conventional power plants . Every hour, the actual production is updated (with a few hours delay) .

Agora-Energiewende publish comparable data including power production from biomass and hydropower.

Solar-pv inverter producer SMA has a nice website that shows an estimate of the real time solar power production in Germany.

On a website of the joint system operators, the production for onshore and offshore wind energy is published with a 1-day delay [thanks to @PPchef  for the link]..

Every day at 16:30, EEX publishes the composition of the conventional power production from the previous day by fuel (nuclear, hard coal, lignite, gas, etc. )

And last but not least: Fraunhofer has a website where all of this information can be accessed and turned into several excellent charts

Denmark

The Danish operator of the national electricity (and gas) grid Energinet.dk publishes real time data of the power production from wind energy, solar, cogeneration (heat&power) and conventional power plants in a nice animation.

The software and consultancy company EMD uses the same data for their website where you can get an overview of the power production mix, power prices and import and export. thanks to @PaulNeau for the reference]

Scandinavia

For the Scandinavian countries Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Estonia, real time data are published on the power production mix (click ‘table’ below the map) and the import and export of electricity.

For a number of countries in the Scandinavian Nordpol region, a prognosis of the wind power production for the next day is published as well.

Belgium

National Belgium grid operator Elia publishes the prognosis and real time data on the  wind and solar power production. For wind energy separate data are available for onshore and offshore wind turbines.

Belgie 15-02-2014

Elia also publishes the expected power mix for the next day. I have the impression that this does not include solar power and only a part of the wind energy capacity.

United Kingdom

In the UK, a wealth of data on power production is published on the dedicated BMRS website. The graphs on this page are rather slow and user unfriendly, but apparently the data can be imported to other websites. Several enthusiasts use these BMRS data for their own website on real time power production like Gridwatch en this beautiful one by Stephen Morley.

Spain

In Spain, the national grid operator REE publishes a lot of information on the real time power production on their website. The one I like best is the graph which shows how the power production mix changes throughout the day. REE publishes this in English as well as Spanish. At this moment (March 2014) only the Spanish version shows solar power as a separate category. .

France

For France, grid operator RTE has a very nice tool on their website (in English..) showing the real time power production by source (nuclear, coal, gas, hydro, wind, solar, etc.). [thanks to @PaulNeau and ‘Snoop’ (below in the comments) for the reference]

France 10-03-2014

RTE also publishes the forecasted and actual production of power from wind energy.

Gridwatch presents the RTE data in a dashboard. [Thanks to @RobVuurvlieg for the link]

Ireland

The Irish grid operator Eirgrid publishes the forecast day-ahead and actual production of wind energy.

Eirgrid also publishes a monthly overview of the power production by source.

Austria

Austrian grid operator APG publishes a day-ahead forecast as well as real time data of the actual wind power production.

Bulgaria

The Bulgarian national grid operator publishes real time data on the power production mix in Bulgaria on their website. The text is in Bulgarian. I have not yet found the information on the English version of the website. [Thanks to Dimitar Mirchev for the link]

bulgarije 21-3-2014

Romania

The Romanian grid operator Transelectrica publishes real time data on the power production mix. The website also has a view where the production from all different sources is shown for any chosen period of time.

Australia

The Netherlands

And my own country? In the Netherlands, no real time data are being published on power production from renewable sources.  National grid operator TenneT does publish data on planned and actual total power production, but this does not show the contribution of the different energy sources.

National statistics bureau CBS publishes data on the monthly wind power production (with a delay of approximately 2 months).

Do you know more real time data on renewable power production by country? Please let me know!

  2. Hi there,

    Entsoe-E went online with its new transparency plattform on 5th of january. You will find plenty of data there (including Netherlands 😉 )

    Cheers,
    Christoph

  3. Oh , just saw ,, hou have that linked allready …
    Thanks

    I guess its time to link Europe better , with renewables …

  4. Great overview Jasper!

    I now there are several related initiatives going on in NL (some of them I am involved myself).

    For example the ‘Nationale Energie Atlas’ (first release planned for go-live 2016Q4).

    RWS is also collecting lot of interesting data, you might take a look at http://www.lokaleenergieetalage.nl/kennisportaal.

    And there is some interesting info at http://www.energiekaart.net and http://www.hieropgewekt.nl.

    And you might also take a look on http://www.atlasleefomgeving.nl/

    Hope this helps!
