Example living life cycle inventory model

Living life cycle inventory models can:

  • Automatically update themselves
  • Provide results on multiple spatial scales
  • Provide results on multiple time scales

This particular model is quite simple - we will gather the necessary data from the ENTSO-E API, and return it in the specified RDF format. The model should support the following capabilities:

  • Be able to specify what kind of input parameters it accepts
  • Validate inputs and return sensible error messages
  • Cache data to avoid unncessary ENTSO-E API calls
  • Function both as a command-line utility and a normal Python library

Inputs can be a list of countries (default is all countries in ENTSO-E), and a time period (default is a given year - maybe 2018?).

This model should also follow the BONSAI Python library skeleton.
