Short summary
The following study was undertaken to provide a continuous open access dataset for 2010-2020 from country to local level. In order to understand the reliability of the final dataset and to enable further use, the modelled data were validated against statistics, which is a novelty in this field. The dataset has been shown to be in good agreement with the statistical data. Biomass potentials modelled in this study are published in an open access database.
