We have been working on our documentation to reduce the learning curve for the Renewables.ninja API, and extend usability to people without a programming background.
Since we enabled API keys for all users, it has been great to see a growing share of simulations being run through the API. We now have example code in R, and publicise the ‘Ninja Automator’ code. This is an R script automates the downloading of multiple simulations, delivering a single data.frame with all your results.
Finally, we have created an Excel interface to the Renewables.ninja, so that it is possible to run simulations directly from your spreadsheet. Now even your granny can see what a solar panel on her house would produce!
