This site provides maps of operational renewable energy generators across Australia. A link is also provided to a map of proposed sites. The generators are classified by technology and can be viewed by clicking onto a spot on the map, and by requesting data about the facility by clicking the marker icon for that facility on the map. Raw data about all the generators can be viewed via CSV (tabular format) for sorting.
This webpage is managed and updated by Geoscience Australia. Information is based on data extracted from publicly available sources. Site last updated May 2012.
The renewables webmap contains locations of Australian renewable power stations greater than 10kW installed capacity with information about fuel type, technology used, size (kW), ownership, latitude, longitude and data source. Links and site photographs are provided where possible. Help on using the mapping system is available. For detail about the data please refer to the metadata sheet.
Most latitudes and longitudes were found in the National Mapping Gazetteer of Australia by reference to the locality name. The positions of power stations are not accurate and mostly represent the general locality of the power station. Where two or more power stations exist at the same locality they have been deliberately separated to prevent the points plotting on top of one another for at least the maximum zoom scale (1:350,000). Locations of power stations maybe more than 10 km from the actual site.
The data were assembled into this webmap by the Mineral Resources and Advice Group of Geoscience Australia. In developing this product Geoscience Australia has compiled information as received from other sources.
