New function for EPE data

In its new version 1.0.0, the datazoom.amazonia package from R enables the user to download data from EPE.

Loads data from the Energy Research Company (EPE), a Brazilian public company that works closely with the Brazilian Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) and other agencies to ensure the sustainable development of Brazil’s energy infrastructure. EPE’s duty on that mission is to support MME with quality research and studies in order to aid Brazil’s energy infrastructure planning. As for now, there are two different datasets available for download: the Energy Consumption Per Class and the National Energy Balance. Both of them were obtained from the EPE website.

The new added function is:

  • load_epe() downloads and tidies data from EPE.
