Field documentation

technologies.csv

Field Name Type (Format) Description
technology string Technology name
mult_ref number Reference size of each technology with respect to the main output of the technology [GW]. For heating and cogeneration technologies, the main output is heat.
c_inv number Specific investment cost of technologies [CHF_2015/kW] with reference to main output ([CHF_2015/kWh] for storage technologies). Main outputs: heat for heating and cogeneration technologies, produced biofuel for gasification and pyrolysis.
c_maint number Specific operation and maintenance (O&M) cost of technologies [CHF_2015/kW] with reference to main output. Main outputs: heat for heating and cogeneration technologies, produced biofuel for gasification and pyrolysis.
gwp_constr number Global warming potential (GWP) emissions for the construction of technologies [kgCO2-eq./kW], with respect to main output of the technology. For heating and cogeneration technologies, the main output is heat. Greenhouse gas emissions including the technology construction only. For GHG emissions, LCA data are taken from the Ecoinvent database v3.2 using the 'allocation at the point of substitution' method. GWP is assessed with the 'GWP100a - IPCC2013' indicator.
lifetime number lifetime of technologies
c_p number Technologies yearly capacity factor. For decentralized technologies, it is assumed a maximum of 2500 h/y of full load operation.
f_min number Minimum installed size of technology [GW] with reference to main output ([GWh] for storage technologies).
f_max number Maximum potential of technology [GW] with reference to main output ([GWh] for storage technologies).
eff_1 number Efficiency of technology: primary output/input [-]. Main outputs: heat for heating and cogeneration technologies, produced biofuel for gasification and pyrolysis. For passenger mobility technologies [kWh_fuel/pkm], for freight mobility technologies [kWh_fuel/tkm]. For PHEV, eff1 is [kWh_gasoline/pkm]. For implementation of Power2Gas, see reference.
eff_2 number Efficiency of technology: secondary output/input [-]. Secondary outputs: electricity for cogeneration technologies; heat for gasification; electricity for pyrolysis. For PHEV, eff2 is [kWh_elec/pkm].
eff_3 number Efficiency of technology: tertiary output/input [-]. Tertiary outputs: electricity for gasification.
