Abstract: This collection contains datasets from ENSPRESO, an EU-28 wide, open dataset for energy models on renewable energy potentials, at national (NUTS0) and regional levels (NUTS2) for the 2010-2050 period. Within ENSPRESO, ENergy Systems Potential Renewable Energy SOurces, technical potentials are provided for wind, solar and biomass, based on coherent GIS-based land-restriction scenarios. For wind, resource evaluation also considers setback distances as well as high resolution geo-spatial wind speed data. For solar, potentials are derived from irradiation data and available area for solar applications. For biomass, agriculture, forestry and waste sectors are considered. The temporal resolution for wind and solar is both annual and year fractions (timeslices as used by JRC-EU-TIMES). ENSPRESO complements the EMHIRES collection, that provides meteorologically derived power time series at high temporal and spatial resolution. ENSPRESO can impact the results of any energy model by improving its analyses of the competition and complementarity of energy technologies.
