Moreover, new technologies such as combined heat & power (CHP) production for hard coal, lignite, oil and natural gas plants as well as new geothermal generation are now also included. The update did not only cover the existing electricity regions but further detail was provided by adding countries, such as Iceland and Estonia.
Another feature users will be happy to see are market groups. The creation of market groups for electricity provides more ease of use by combining the electricity mixes for bigger regions in one dataset, such as UCTE, ENTSO-E, Asia, or the USA. More details on this new feature is provided below.
