Hydro climate inflows

Package version
Description Hydro inflows for Switzerland under CH2018 climate scenarios
Notes Inflows for Swiss hydropower under different climate scenarios in MWh per month (sum of total Swiss inflows in energy). Note that due to capacity restrictions not all energy potential can be used by Swiss power plants. Therefore, make sure to calibrate historic climate to actual historic production when using the data.
