Abstract

This resource contains the 20th century time series data for 1,593 hydropower dams, which collectively represent more than half of the world’s existing installed hydropower capacity (in 2016 when we conducted the study). The time series were generated by forcing a detailed dam model with monthly-resolution, 20th century (1906-2000) inflows—the model includes plant specifications, storage dynamics and realistic operating schemes.

Start exploring the data by downloading the Rdata together with the open_file.R script. You will be able to find monthly-resolution time series outputs of our simulation, including the hydropower production, storage level, and water releases for each dam.
