Every month the Clean Energy Regulator publishes small-scale renewable energy installation data files.
These data files provide a list of:
small generation units (SGU) (small-scale solar panel, wind and hydro systems) and kilowatt (kW) capacity by installed postcode, and
solar water heaters (SWH) and air source heat pumps by installed postcode.
The data represents all systems that have had certificates validly created against them. The data includes new installations, upgrades to existing systems and stand-alone (off-grid) systems.
This data is not publicly available via the REC Registry and does not include systems that are pending registration or have been failed by the Clean Energy Regulator.
Note: A 12 month creation period for registered persons to create small-scale technology certificates applies under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) Act 2000. Therefore the 2015 and 2016 figures will continue to rise due to the 12 month creation period.
