A data set of a Norwegian energy community

Abstract

This paper presents a data set designed to represent Norwegian energy communities. As such it includes household consumption data collected from smart meter measurements and divided into consumer groups, appliance consumption data collected from Norwegian households, electric vehicle data regarding charging patterns, simulated photovoltaic power generation data based on temperature and irradiance data sets and wholesale electricity prices.

All data sets are further filtered by season, weekday/weekend and time segment, and then fitted to either a normal, exponential or log-normal distribution. The reason for this specific segmentation is the intention to provide a suitable data set for case studies and experiments on energy communities that consider uncertainty, a main challenge to be overcome in the practical implementation of energy community projects. In addition to this filtered version, the previously unpublished raw data sets on household consumption and photovoltaic power generation are also provided.
