Data about the EU emission trading system (ETS). The EU emission trading system (ETS) is one of the main measures introduced by the EU to achieve cost-efficient reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and reach its targets under the Kyoto Protocol and other commitments. The data mainly comes from the EU Transaction Log (EUTL).

Data Preparation

Requirements

Python 2 together with modules urllib and zipfile are required in order to process the data.

Processing

Run the following script from this directory to download and process the data:

make

Resources

The raw data are output to ./tmp. The processed data are output to ./data.

Import into your tool

If you are using R here's how to get the data you want quickly loaded:

install.packages("jsonlite")
library("jsonlite")

json_file <- "http://datahub.io/core/eu-emissions-trading-system/datapackage.json"
json_data <- fromJSON(paste(readLines(json_file), collapse=""))

# access csv file by the index starting from 1
path_to_file = json_data$resources$path[1][1]
data <- read.csv(url(path_to_file))
print(data)

In order to work with Data Packages in Pandas you need to install the Frictionless Data data package library and the pandas extension:

pip install datapackage
pip install jsontableschema-pandas

To get the data run following code:

import datapackage

data_url = "http://datahub.io/core/eu-emissions-trading-system/datapackage.json"

# to load Data Package into storage
storage = datapackage.push_datapackage(data_url, 'pandas')

# data frames available (corresponding to data files in original dataset)
storage.buckets

# you can access datasets inside storage, e.g. the first one:
storage[storage.buckets[0]]

For Python, first install the `datapackage` library (all the datasets on DataHub are Data Packages):

pip install datapackage

To get Data Package into your Python environment, run following code:

from datapackage import Package

package = Package('http://datahub.io/core/eu-emissions-trading-system/datapackage.json')

# get list of resources:
resources = package.descriptor['resources']
resourceList = [resources[x]['name'] for x in range(0, len(resources))]
print(resourceList)

data = package.resources[0].read()
print(data)

If you are using JavaScript, please, follow instructions below:

Install data.js module using npm:

  $ npm install data.js

Once the package is installed, use the following code snippet:

const {Dataset} = require('data.js')

const path = 'http://datahub.io/core/eu-emissions-trading-system/datapackage.json'

// We're using self-invoking function here as we want to use async-await syntax:
(async () => {
  const dataset = await Dataset.load(path)

  // Get the first data file in this dataset
  const file = dataset.resources[0]
  // Get a raw stream
  const stream = await file.stream()
  // entire file as a buffer (be careful with large files!)
  const buffer = await file.buffer
})()

Install the datapackage library created specially for Ruby language using gem:

gem install datapackage

Now get the dataset and read the data:

require 'datapackage'

path = 'http://datahub.io/core/eu-emissions-trading-system/datapackage.json'

package = DataPackage::Package.new(path)
# So package variable contains metadata. You can see it:
puts package

# Read data itself:
resource = package.resources[0]
data = resource.read
puts data
Datapackage.json
