Statnett API Client

Project description

Statnett API Client

Client presents methods for reading real-time Nordic power balance data provided by the Norwegian Transmission System Operator (

The full list of topics accessible via Statnett REST API can be seen here.

Client supports reading of the following topics:


To install the Client, simply use pip:

$ pip install statnett_api_client

Basic Usage

from statnett_api_client import Client
# initialize parser
client = Client(fmt='pandas')
# read power flow topic and return pandas dataframe 
flow = client.get('flow')


You can specify the format of returned object when initializing the client. By default, it will return data as json array.

client = Client()

To get the data as pandas object, you need to specify fmt parameter in constructor. Specify date2index if you want to add dates to dataframe index.

client = Client(fmt='pandas')
client = Client(fmt='pandas', date2index=True)

By default, the time is in UTC. To add a column with Central European Time (CET), you need to specify time_cet parameter.

client = Client(fmt='pandas', time_cet=True)

Sometimes it can be useful to add hour column to result dataframe. It can be achieved by specifying add_hour keyword parameter. If time_cet is True, then two columns are added, hour_utc and hour_cet.

client = Client(fmt='pandas', time_cet=True, add_hour=True)

Reading Data

After you have set the client, you can read data from supported topics.

# Nordic power flow 
flow = client.get('flow')
# Nordic power balance
balance = client.get('balance')


The Client is released under MIT License.
