Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure Project

ScopeProject InnovationBenefitA large amount of mapping data and information relevant to the renewable energy industryis currently collected and housed by different agencies and institutions. However, there is no central source for this information and finding it can be time consuming and challenging. The Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure Project will consolidate data currently housed by multiple organisations such as Geoscience Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO. The purpose of the AREMI project is to better inform energy supply and infrastructure investment decisions; reduce the time and costs associated with early stage project planning; and create opportunities for value adding analytical work within the public and private sectors. AREMI makes it easier for renewable energy projects to get off the ground in Australia. We provide a ‘one stop shop’ for all open geospatial data relevant to the energy sector stakeholders from government, industry and research. Energy project develope...Get price

Renewables | energy.gov.au

In 2019, 21% of Australia’s total electricity generation was from renewable energy sources, including wind (7%), solar (7%) and hydro (5%). The share of renewables in total electricity generation in 2019 was the highest since levels recorded in the early 1970s. Solar and wind have been the primary drivers in more than doubling renewable generation expansion over the last decade.Get price

Current estimates suggest that investment in renewable energy has moderated from its recent peak and is likely to decline further over the next year orGet price

GIS and Renewable Energy Sources | GIM International

Economic BenefitsSocial BenefitsEnvironmental BenefitsA region, province or state (more generally an administrative unit) may benefit from exploiting and using RES through: 1. federal and state subsidies 2. lower energy bills 3. increase in foreign direct investment (FDI) 4. increase in real-estate value 5. increase in RES supplier revenues 6. decrease in dependency on energy imports 7. increase in security of energy supply 8. economic value of the entire supply chain involved in RES. The level of subsidies will determine RES investments and development. Federal and state subsidies can be simply mapped and do not need a derived parameter as an indicator (Figure 1). Lower energy bills resulting from use of RES can be indicated by comparison with average electricity and natural-gas prices across an administrative unit. Increase in FDI can be quantified either as a percentage of contribution of RES to the total FDI on all energy sources, and as a percentage of contribution to the gross domestic product (GDP). An indicator for the increase...Get price

What are renewable energy zones, and why do they matter

But access to the places with the greatest potential (renewable energy zones) is being held back by limited network connections. Unlocking the potential of these renewable energy zones is becoming more pressing. According to Bloomberg, investment in new Australian renewable energy projects fell by 60 per cent in 2019. A large part of this decline has been blamed on difficulty gaining approval to connect new projects to the grid, transmission losses, and congestion in parts of the network.Get price
