Simple Energy & Environment Data From The World (aka. seedftw) - A small example package for acquiring open energy and environment data

Project description


This package is meant to give you simple [access to] energy and environment data from the world (in short seedftw). This package is meant to be used with Python 3.


Currently, it contains the following data loading capabilities:

  • Energy:
    • Transmission system data from Denmark under This data is provided by the danish transmission system operator Energinet.
  • Environment:
    • Simple geographical computations, under seedftw.environment.geography
    • Weather observations from Denmark under seedftw.environment.denmark. This data is provided by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). OBS: you need to create an API key on their portal to gain access to the data.

To get the latest stable version, pull the master branch from Gitlab:

pip install git+

To get the latest developments (can be unstable), pull the Development branch from Gitlab:

Examples and documentation

You can find a documentation and code samples in Jupyter notebooks in the examples folder.

Note to users and developers

This repository is currently developed as a hobby project. But if you're interested in contributing, this is very welcome.

At the moment, the documentation is very unevenly advanced, help there is also appreciated.

The style format used for development is Black, if you contribute, it would be nice if you remember to apply it to your code before committing.
