Tagging: power_output=*

Summary

This proposal has been obsoleted by Proposed features/generator rationalisation.

A power=generator may produce electricity, heat, cooling or some combination using co/tri-generation.

Suggested usage:

power_output electricity Electricity (power)
power_output heat Heat (or hot water)
power_output cooling Cooling (or cold water)

Co-generation and tri-generation plants should separate values with a semi-colon, for example "power_output=electricity;heat".

To ensure that information isn't lost, this should go hand-in-hand with a further proposed tag - Proposed features/power_method.

Deprecates

This deprecates the following values for power_source=*:

Old value New tagging
power_source=photovoltaic power_source=solar

power_output=electricity

power_method=photovoltaic

power_source=solar-thermal Either

power_source=solar

power_output=heat

power_method=thermal

Or

power_source=solar

power_output=electricity

power_method=thermal
