The Energy World in Numbers

A sound basis for your decisions

A valid database is the starting point of any high-quality quantitative analysis. The core of our business is collecting, validating, documenting and archiving the available data on all relevant aspects of the energy industry. We are experts in the preparation, analysis and interpretation of this extensive wealth of information.

In particular, we research and maintain data in the following areas:

  • Conventional power plants (thermal power plants, storage and pumped storage)
  • Renewable energy (potential, weather information, etc.)
  • European demand and load data
  • Public Statistics (StaBua, AGEB, EUROSTAT, ENTSO-E)
  • Emission data
  • Market data from different energy markets and exchanges (EPEX, EEX, APX, ICE).

Due to our skilled data management, we can flexibly evaluate our data - depending on your query. All our data are generally geocoded, allowing regional, finely resolved, data analyzes.

Power plant database

The availability of a (where possible) complete database on all electricity generation installations in the system provides the basis for reliable analyzes and assessments in the context of German and European generating capacity. We can reliably evaluate opportunities, risks, challenges and your options for action for you, but only on the basis of correct and extensive information about market participants.

r2b energy consulting has extensive databases with comprehensive information on nearly all conventional power plants, storage and pumped storage power plants (> 10 MWel) in Europe. All the technical and economic characteristics of plants that are required for the evaluation of the systems and the realistic simulation of their marketing opportunities are saved in our databases..

Database for renewable energies

Renewables’ data management requires elaborate databases and systems, due to its decentralized and fragmented nature. We have excellent data on 'European weather information', 'data on renewable energy potential' and 'plant registry' at our disposal.

Greenhouse gas emissions

The goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions plays a central role in both German and European energy and climate policy. Against this background the impact of climate-related political measures on power supplies or on European greenhouse gas emissions trading is an important criterion for decisions in the political debate.

We draw on these extensive databases as our main sources in on greenhouse gas emissions:

  • Detailed information on the emissions of all European countries, according to the logic of the national inventory reports (NIR)
  • Historical data on emissions in the EU ETS by country and area of activity
  • Additional, extensive data based on national and international statistics
