Title: Solar hourly generation time series at country, NUTS 1, NUTS 2 level and bidding zones

Description

EMHIRES is the first publically available European solar power generation dataset derived from meteorological sources that is available up to NUTS-2 level. It was generated applying the PVGIS model to capture local geographical information to generate meteorologically derived solar power time series at high temporal and spatial resolution. This allows for a better understanding of the solar resource at the precise location of wind farms.
