Power Plant Terms

From Enipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list generated from the work described on Enipedia Power Plant Dataset Reconciliation API. In trying to link together datasets, it's useful to identify stop words that can be removed to make the matching process more accurate. At the same time, it's also useful to identify terms that give additional information and clues about the properties of the plant that we're looking at. The current list is based on an examination of common terms that appear with plant names and owner names for both the Netherlands and Germany.

[edit] Dutch

  • centrale - probably a big plant, usually a suffix attached to the name of the plant - Amercentrale, Eemscentrale, etc.

  • kwekerij - plant nursery, probably natural gas CHP
  • RWZI - [1] - Wastewater treatment plant, probably using biogas
  • WKC - [2], Dutch word for CHP (refers to a large plant)
  • WKK - Warmtekrachtkoppeling, Dutch word for CHP, probably a smaller unit, refers to the technology, not necessarily a site.
  • HWC - Hulpwarmtecentrale - a power station primarily designed to supply heat such as for district heating. An example is the Hulpwarmtecentrale Schuytgraaf.
  • vestiging
  • locatie
  • Pompstation
  • brouwerij - brewery, uses biogas?
