The South Australian government has maps to help investors decide the best sites for specific types of development.
South Australia has a unique mix of renewable energy resources which is as extensive as anywhere in the world.
Our Renewable Energy Atlas has plenty of information and maps to assist in determining locations ideal for developing renewable energy projects.
Interactive maps and dashboards are available on the Energy and Mining Portal.
Regional maps showing water quality, rainfall, land use, development constraints, soil capability and key infrastructure (gas, power and water pipelines) are available from Primary Industries and Regions SA via AgInsight South Australia.
This site provides high-resolution spatial planning information includes spatial data in geographic information system (GIS) format for property parcel boundaries, infrastructure services (electricity, road and rail), land elevation, local council boundaries, planning zones, natural resources and public land. It also includes information about matters that could affect development such as threatened fauna and flora, historical land contamination, native title and Aboriginal and European heritage sites.
Another resource is Location SA which is the underlying collaboration and infrastructure that supports data sharing throughout government and to the wider community of South Australia.
The South Australian Diesel Generation Database contains information on the ownership, use, location and configuration of electricity producing, diesel-fuelled generation plants in South Australia.
The database was compiled at the request of RenewablesSA with the intention of increasing the available information on diesel generation use in South Australia. A voluntary survey was carried out to obtain the information. Significant information was provided by the Government of South Australia through the Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure through the Buildings Management section and through the Department for Energy and Mining.
The data was updated in 2020 to reflect the current status as known by the Department for Energy and Mining. The fields were adjusted to be consistent with related power generation datasets.
