Renewable energy

There are a number of resource maps that help potential renewable energy investors and project developers to find ideal locations to deploy projects throughout South Australia. This includes maps of ideal wind and solar resources and interactive hydrogen and biomass maps.

Wind and solar

South Australia’s Renewable Energy Atlas shows locations with ideal conditions to deploy wind and solar projects. It also identifies the location of existing renewable energy projects and South Australia's electricity transmission network and power plants.


The Interactive Hydrogen Map assists investors and project developers to identify potentially suitable sites in South Australia to deploy hydrogen production, transport and utilisation.


The Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure helps developers and financiers evaluate spatial renewable energy information to support deployment of bioenergy projects.

Ocean energy

A map of optimal sites to harvest energy from the ocean’s waves, currents and tides is available as a spatial data layer on Australian Renewable Energy Mapping Infrastructure
