Is there a good place to get generation data for individual German wind farms (offshore is currently by main interest, but onshore would be a nice extra too)?

There's lashings of data available for the Danish sites (monthly generation by individual turbine; and 1-minute & 5-minute data for West-DK / East-DK totals), and some data for British sites (farm-wide by month, from the ROC data), but I don't know of any equivalent German data.

Reasonably certain that offshore park production remains confidential (except in some instances for annual production from the entire park, but only Alpha Ventus has a complete year), but for German onshore sites:

don't know if there's a site which publishes windpark data, but can't imagine such exists.

what's the GB ROC site, and the Danish site?

Hi Crazy Horse, many thanks for the data links. Here are mine:

DK data

The Danish turbine-specific data is available from ENS, in their wind turbine register - the main data is linked in the body text, and monthly data by year is listed down the right-hand side of the page.

The 5-minute data fleet-wide data is available, by FTP only, from Energinet, and all the files zipped come to 6MB in total.

The 1-minute data is shown on this live Energinet chart, and as it's provided in a SOAP feed, one might think that it would be possible to create an automated scraper of that feed to archive the minute-by-minute data, if one felt that it might offer an interesting complement to the 5-minute data.

Using these, here are a couple of things I prepared earlier:
Capacity factors at Danish offshore wind farms and a paper showing that Denmark exports its thermal power, and practically none (0.1%-1%) of its wind power

GB data

The GB ROC data is available for 2002-2006 here, and for more recent data from the renewables register

Happy to discuss further, by email if you like: - andrew at my Eurotrib username here dot info
