Interview with Priya Donti, Co-founder and Chair, Climate Change AI

“Our organization is trying to address this data challenge by consolidating information about relevant public data sources where they exist, and funding the creation of research-ready datasets where there are gaps. There are also a number of other excellent initiatives — such as Climate TRACE, the Global Energy Data Commons, Icebreaker One, and the Public Utility Data Liberation project, to name a few.”

Comparing FERC and EIA Electricity Demand Data

One of our collaborators, Zane Selvans (@ZaneSelvans) of the Catalyst Cooperative (@CatalystCoop), mapped the ~200 FERC respondents to the ~70 EIA BAs and arranged the FERC data into a more usable format.  With this, we compared the hourly demand values for the successfully mapped BAs for 2017.

Open-Source Energy Projects in Python You Need to Know About

This team is solving a huge problem: organizing all this data and transforming it into machine-readable format. In a similar ethos to the Power Genome project (which uses PUDL), Catalyst Cooperative is aiming to lower the barriers to entry for energy system analysis and make these resources available for all to use.

Mapped: The US Nuclear Power Plants at ‘Risk’ of Shutting Down

Carbon Brief also analysed 30 financial reports from individual nuclear plants submitted to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) obtained through the Public Utility Data Liberation Project. These plants generally reported average operating expenses (excluding ongoing capital improvements) of between $19 and $61 per MWh between 2010 and 2016, with a median cost of $26 per MWh – the same as the average number found in the EIA data.
