This is work in progress and supposed to become a link list to sources of open energy related data. We focus on collecting links to data relevant for the modelling of energy and electricity systems and markets.
You are welcome to fill in the missing spots and non-existing pages. Also, you are welcome to extend the list of relevant data that we should collect links to in the future.
Model relelvant data
Please note that red links indicate planned, but not yet filled pages. You are welcome to start creating the missing pages and breathe life into them.

Data sharing techniques
Sometimes used: GitHub repositories. A fun example is the Bundesgit, a collection of all German federal laws under version control. New laws or modfications are tracked as commits, allowing to "see" how a dataset -- laws, in that case -- evolve over time. The repository openmundi/world.db shows a more data-focused way of using Git, or GitHub, for collaborative collection of data. However, it clearly shows the limitations of using a version control system for code on data.
An upcoming and (technically) promising project is dat, which "is a version-controlled, decentralized data tool for collaboration between data people and data systems." Or, simply: Git for data. It is currently in public beta test, but has come a long way already.
Feel free to add scripts here, by creating a new wiki page, or place them on Github Gists.
