We are working behind the scenes to get Renewables.ninja ready for its next major update. In the meantime, we are beginning to roll out improvements made in the course of this work.
Many of our users have requested more data, so
they can expand their research to cover more than a single year. So,
conducting a closed beta test with four years of data (2012-2015). Contact us
if this is of interest to you. We are still ironing out some kinks but intend
to have even more years of data available online for all users by summer.
In addition, we made some minor improvements:
- By popular request, data downloaded from the web
interface now comes with an additional column that shows timestamps in the
local time zone. We hope this will avoid confusion – such as the sun shining in
the middle of the night when you look at Hawaii. When using the API, this additional column can be disabled by adding
local_time=false to the request.
from the web interface now includes an additional header row with information
about the version, license, and citation for the data. By default, this is
disabled for API requests, but can be enabled by adding
header=true to the request.
As always, feel free to contact us if there are any issues or if you have any requests and ideas for collaboration!
