here at RenewEconomy we are often asked for more information about the location of wind and solar projects, and battery storage.

Short of developing our own data-base (which we wish we had the resources for), we’ve decided to reproduce a series of graphs from the Australia Energy Regulator’s latest “state of the market” report.

This first one shows the existing generators – coal (black), gas (grey), Hydro (blue), biomass (pink), solar (yellow) and wind (green). Battery storage doesn’t feature because there is no grid-scale batteries in NSW, yet.

We’ll keep a look out for maps of projects in the pipeline, or awaiting connection, but that tends to be a moving feast, and many developers like to keep their crds close to their chest. And in coming days, we’ll publish the generation maps for other states too.

Update: We have also published the maps for Victoria, Queensland and South Australia.
