Fossil Energy

Fossil power in the Australian Energy Market

Fossil Energy Production During July 2017

The default, capacity factor graph shows the output as a percentage of registered capacity. Alternatively, you may view the actual output in megawatts.

Generators may be included or excluded from the graphs by toggling the check boxes. The total will update accordingly.

Data for the month-long graphs is sampled at 3 hour intervals to reduce the number of data points.
