Electricity generation map

  About the map

All power stations are shown by default. You can also filter by type, status and capacity using the buttons below, and they will show on the map and in a list at the bottom of this panel. At the end of the result list you can see how many power stations meet your criteria and the equivalent total generating capacity in Megawatts (MW).

Click on the power station name in the result list and the map will zoom onto the location of the power station.

Type of data included

This map contains locations of Queensland’s existing power stations with greater than 1 MW installed capacity with information about fuel type, size (MW), ownership, commissioned date and data source. For remote/isolated areas only major generating facilities have been included. Geothermal facilities of capacity less than 1MW have also been included.

The map also displays proposed power generating facilities publicly announced by project developers. Some publicly announced projects may not proceed to construction.

The data has been compiled by the Department of Energy and Water Supply from a range of public sources, including public notification of development applications on local government authorities websites.

Positional accuracy

Most latitudes and longitudes of existing power stations were determined using Google Earth TM geospatial information. Where two or more power stations exist at the same location they have been deliberately separated to prevent the points plotting on top of one another. The positions of proposed power generating facilities are not accurate and mostly represent the general locality of the proposed facility.
